The home is immaculately clean and whimsically decorated, professionally landscaped, and boasts one of the larger pools larger backyards and larger 2 bedroom homes on the Island. The spa is accented by iridescent glass. The 20' tall tiki hut was hand-built by Native Americans and houses the bar and seating for six. Inside your vacation rental, you'll find the highest quality furnishings, three smart TV's, a large master bedroom with king bed and a large walk-in closet. The guest room with its whimsical decor has two twin beds and a smart TV. And then there's the colorful 'futon room' (not private) that sleeps two most comfortably. You'll also find a large family room and game room and a separate dining room that seats six. Look inside the entertainment center for games, videos and books. Step out the door and you'll find two 20' by 10' decks with Weber grill and seating for six, and chaise loungers for two. If you're not walking to the beaches, or eating at the great restaurants, you can enjoy volleyball in the pool, air hockey or mini pool on the game table, 'corn hole' or simply lounge at pool side. You also have a complimentary membership to the Anna Maria Community Center's tennis courts and fitness center. My wife and I chose this unique location because it is the safest and quietest part of the Island, and it is between two of the finest pier restaurants on the Island and 150 yards from Waterfront Park and the bay beaches. You won't need a car because most of your enjoyment is within a short walking distance. You can also take the free trolley all the way down the island through Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach. If you love nature, you'll love the North End. Look for the wild green parrots, the woodpeckers, the night and great blue heron, manatees that regularly swim beneath the two piers, and dolphins, just to name a few of our favorites. When you're walking on the North End beaches, look for the baby sand dollars and trailing olive shells. This location is right in the middle of all the great North End activities: go north to Bean Point with its awesome sunsets (5-7 minute walk); go south to City Pier and Pine avenue's great shopping (8-10 minute walk), and west to the Gulf beaches (10-15 minute walk). Or you can take our 'secret path' short-cut out the back gate to North Bay park and beach (2-3 minute walk). Last, but certainly not least, you can walk 10 minutes south and use all the facilities of Anna Maria Community Center with its tennis, fitness facility, and a host of scheduled activities. There is no cost to you as guests at the Sassy Seahorse (some exceptions for special classes).
