About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation walking distance to both the Gulf beaches and Tampa Bay, you have found the place.

Anna Maria Island is a small barrier island located approximately one hour South of Tampa. The Island consists of 7 miles of beautiful untouched white sand beaches. In Anna Maria, you will not find high rises or big resorts. It is a quaint island that is unspoiled, tranquil, and very relaxing. The width of the island is only 4 blocks where we are located - so you can easily walk to water on either side. Our location is also convenient to the charming Bayview Plaza. One block away, you can shop, eat at several restaurants, have ice cream, coffee etc. The Anna Maria Pier is also located one block away. Where you can fish, or enjoy dinner and live music.

Our home was built in 1907 and is one of the original homes on the island. In 1947 Arthur and Leone Shumard purchased the home as their retirement home. It has been in the family ever since. In 2003 the home was in need of renovation, and was completely renovated from top to bottom by the current owners. We take pride in our island vacation home, and make cleaning and maintenance our top priority.

The cottage has 2+ bedrooms, living room, den, fully equipped kitchen, sunroom, 2 bathrooms, and laundry. Our home is completely furnished, and all rooms are tiled with Italian porcelain. The front room retains its original pine flooring.

The master bedroom has a private full bathroom and French doors that open up to a private patio and 7 person hot tub. There is also a set of French doors that open up to the sun room, creating a very open and airy feeling. You will also enjoy the high ceilings with ceiling fan. There is a king size bed with a pillow top mattress and 100% cotton sheets.

The guest room has a queen size bed with a pillow top mattress and 100% cotton sheets. There is a door to a small outside porch. A skylight also brightens the room along with high ceilings and a ceiling fan.

The sun room is full of windows and French doors that open up to the pool.
In the sun room you will find a new pull out couch for any extra guests you may have. This room can be shut off from the rest of the house as a possible third bedroom.

The living room is equipped with a 32” television, a DVD player, and stereo with CD player. There is a cathedral ceiling and fan making the room one of our favorite relaxing spots.

The kitchen is fully equipped to allow you to cook anything you like. There is a dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposal, six chairs for the dining table and an additional leaf. There is an additional four person table in the sun room if you require additional seating.

There are two bathrooms both equipped with 100% cotton bath sheets and towels. The front bathroom has a pedestal sink and a beautiful tiled shower. The second bathroom is located in the master suite and also has a pedestal sink. This bathroom has a bathtub and beautiful tiled walls.

The pool is just outside in the backyard and is surrounded by flowers, shrubs, large palm trees and a huge flowering royal ponciana tree that creates a very tropical and private outdoor setting.
