Property description

PRIVATE ISLAND PARADISE - This unique home is hidden on a quarter acre garden lot (1,020 sq m.) surrounded by palms, birds of paradise, tropical plants and a 6 ft fence. Few island homes offer this degree of privacy. SPACIOUS ELEGANCE - This custom home has 2,600 sq ft (240 sq m.) of ground level indoor living space . Every room enjoys sunny, private garden views. CONVENIENT SPLIT FLOORPLAN: The queen bed master suite with private bath is at the west end. The east end has 2 guest bedrooms (queen bed + twin beds) with a bath with tub in between. PRIVATE GARDEN POOL - The fully screened pool and front lanai add 1,800+ sq ft of outdoor living space. The waterfall pool features a jacuzzi spa (heated in the cool season). DIGITAL FEATURES - Rental includes wireless broadband Internet, digital phone with unlimited long distance in the US and Canada, premium cable TV with digital TV recorder, and XM satellite radio with indoor and pool speakers.


Your home away from home: We've maintained a home on Anna Maria Island since 1983. From 2001-2005 we built and operated a resort on the island. After selling the resort we missed welcoming new people to paradise! We renovated this custom home and began offering it for rental in 2007.

We love the island and will do anything we can to make your visit as pleasant and relaxing as possible. Show up with food, drink, bathing suits and some sandals and we'll provide the rest. (-:

Personal tips to enjoy the island like a native: When you arrive we provide personal orientation for our guests, sharing the best restaurant, shopping and beach tips that we've picked up over the last 25 years(!). Local maps, guide books and newspapers will be waiting for you on arrival and we'll help you find the special activities you're looking for.

Ask before you pack...it should all be here!: We've done our best to make sure your home has everything. You'll arrive to find first class linens, bedding, cooking equipment, toys, hairdryers, etc. We also provide a starter set of paper goods (paper towels, coffee filters, napkins, toilet paper, tissues), trash bags, dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent, etc. Your kitchen has a selection of spices and condiments. There are DVD movies, loads of books and a few select games (Monopoly, Scattergories, playing cards, etc.). It's also helpful to know that the public library is less than a mile south of us with books, videos, periodicals and public computers. Finally, the garage has every beach toy and accessory invented. (-: Floats, rafts, buckets, shovels, mats, chairs, umbrellas, coolers. Really if you bring some casual beach wear and flip flops you'll be in good shape!

Car: Recommended

BEACHES - Anna Maria Island has 7 miles of unique beaches. Wherever you stay, you'll want to visit a few to discover your favorite beach for swimming, walking, dining, bird-watching, playgrounds, shelling or privacy. Parking everywhere is easy and free. The beach is a 3 minute bike ride from our home (we've timed it), or less than a 10 minute walk. The island's free trolley service stops at every beach. CAR? - A car is *desirable* but not essential. It depends on you. A family of 6 really needs a car for food, shopping and taking kids to the different beaches. But a couple looking to read, swim, relax and hide out for a romantic week might consider using the free bikes and island trolley to get around. FOOD & SHOPPING? Anna Maria Island has plenty of restaurants, unique local shopping with a Publix supermarket, CVS and Walgreen pharmacies just 2 miles south (accessible by Trolley too). Once you come over the island drawbridge you won't want to leave...and you won't have to!

Other Activities: dolphin watching, fine dining

Golf: There are no public golf courses on Anna Maria Island but the Bradenton Country Club is only 8 miles east and gets good reviews from players. There are a number of other courses in the Bradenton-Sarasota area within about a 45 minute drive.
