                  Car: Recommended

                  Anna Maria Island is a quaint Barrier Island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico.

                  Beautiful turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are the main attraction here. It is a place where 'old' Florida charm can still be found, flip flops are a way of life and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph.

                  High rise condos and fast food restaurants are pleasantly absent from our pristine 'get away from it all' island.

                  Our accommodations and restaurants offer something for everyone. From quaint cottages by the sea to deluxe suites, from million-dollar villas to rustic cottages.

                  One visit to Anna Maria Island and you will be calling it, 'My island in the sun'.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: We moved from Tampa, FL to Anna Maria Island full-time in 2011. I was born and raised in Tampa and visited Anna Maria Island many times as a child. After selling my computer software business in 2007, I bought a 'weekend' place in Holmes Beach in 2008. I immediately fell in love with the island and the friendliness of the locals. It is a charming small town that I know you too will enjoy.
