About Ann Chappell
Originally from Louisiana now Living in England, I spent my summers on Crescent Beach, Siesta Key. Anna Maria reminds me of Siesta Key before any high rise buildings.
Ann Chappell purchased this House in 2008
Why Ann Chappell chose Anna Maria
The Gulf Coast's white sand beaches are highly-regarded and known worldwide for their beauty. Anna Maria is unique because it is not built-up like many other areas of Florida. It is old Florida, not some new area trying to be old Florida! It is relaxed and friendly. We chose the house because it is on the canal allowing access to various water activities and yet is 200 yards to the beach.
What makes this House unique
If you want a relaxing vacation, you can choose to never leave the house and have a wonderful time swimming, fishing and enjoying the view. You can walk to most restaurants in the area or take the free trolley. If you want an active vacation, you can jet ski, water ski, sail, parasail, kayak, deep sea fish, bike, golf, swim, horseback ride, tennis, shuffleboard, paddle surf all within 5 miles of the house. You can go further a field for theatre (Sarasota)or theme parks (Busch Gardens in Tampa). If you have to work while on vacation, the house is fully equipped with a computer, fax/scanner/printer, and high speed wireless broadband. The post office is within walking distance if you need to send items. Free phone service is provided and includes low cost international service as well.

The owner was easy to deal with and Erin does an excellent job managing the property and stocking the home with the essentials. Wish I could give it six stars...
Perfect for our family!
We spent mornings at the beach; afternoons at the pool; evenings back at the beach for the sunset. Some days we walked down to the pier to fish--$2 for the day for a pole.
Wonderful location and home layout for up to 10 people
This home is just a few blocks from a gorgeous "sugar-like" Gulf beach. Quiet neighborhood. Back yard had a dock into a canal-- you could rent a kayak and go to Tampa Bay. Great local restaurants in the area. Everyone on the island is friendly and so helpful! The home was clean and comfortable--maybe get some firmer mattresses for the beds. Kitchen was super well equipped. The pool was large and kid friendly. We felt so at home. Beautiful property. Thank you!!
Thanks for the review. We are so fortunate to be on the canal and able to accommodate 10 guests.
I am sorry the mattresses let the property down for you. If you could let me know exactly which ones were too soft we can consider other mattresses. We have just replaced some. I just hope they were not the new ones.
Please stay with us on your next visit to Anna Maria and give us a chance to redeem our mattresses.
Have a great summer.
Beautiful. clean home!
Our stay was great. The house was probably the cleanest I have rented on AMI. Shout out to the cleaning staff! The kitchen had everything we could have wanted and the property overall is great for a family or friends. We cooked a big breakfast each morning and having the dining room table was appreciated. We did grill out once and there was a backup gas tank in the outdoor storage closet. Bedrooms are spread out so it felt like everyone had their own space. The back yard has the pool, which we did use even with the cool weather, but the outdoor patio furniture was the best. We had family come from across the country so we did spend time sitting outside just catching up. We did have a problem with the pool not heating and texted the house contact. There was a pool company at the house within 15 minutes. (Really? That doesn’t happen anywhere!). Turned out the water level was too low in the pool and things were back up and running in no time. The house is about a half mile walk to the Rod n Reel Peir and Pine Street is about a half mile in the other direction. Loved that the beach was just a few blocks away. We didn’t get to spend much time at the beach because of the cool weather but we did walk to see the sunset every night. We all felt very safe. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone with a large group. If my family wants to come I would rent this property again.
Thank you for taking time for this great review. We want our guests to enjoy their stay and make great family memories. The last thing guests want to do is to spend time with the management company addressing issues. Keeping a property in order is a challenge and we try our best to anticipate any issues.
We do hope you visit Anna Maria soon and when you do our door is open.
Loved sitting outside watching the grandchildren in the pool. The house was a perfect fit for my family. Loved having 3 bathrooms. Everyone felt comfortable yet could have privacy.
Thank you for your feedback. So glad the property worked for your extended family.
Absolutely stunning villa.
We had such a fabulous time in this wonderful villa. It is by far the nicest villa we have stayed in. The décor is beautiful and it was spotlessly clean. We all loved the pool and the large seating area and often sat on the dock looking at the wildlife. The welcome basket was a lovely touch and Erin’s home-made cookies were delicious.
The villa was close enough to walk to the beautiful white sandy beach and also to the Sand Bar restaurant where we dined at sunset. It was a shame we had to leave a day early because of Hurricane Irma and we hope that the villa and AMI were not damaged by the storm. A big thank you to Erin for her support and advice and to Anne for letting us share her amazing home. We will definitely be returning again to C-view in the future.
