Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to paradise! ANNA MARIA ISLAND is the first of the barrier islands located along Florida's Gulf Coast. It is about 7 miles long and 1/2 a mile wide. It is known for beautiful beaches, breathtaking sunsets and a boat load of really nice people. The number one activity in the area is to DO NOTHING AND RELAX ON THE BEACH.

This is the CLEANEST AND BRIGHTEST vacation rental you will find on the island! This charming beach bungalow is the SECOND FLOOR UNIT of a beachfront duplex. (The 3 bedroom ground floor unit is available as VRBO #298525)

This BEACH HOUSE is tucked away on a VERY QUIET STREET in the sleepy north end of the island. Far away from traffic, crowds, and tourists who like to party. It is the 2ND HOUSE FROM THE BEACH with no roads to block access. If you open your bedroom window at night, the only sound will be the rolling surf on the beach. This is truly the BEST LOCATION on the Island.

Your front door is less than 1 minute from one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in Florida. The sand is like POWDERED SUGAR. It never gets hot on your feet because it is 99% pure quartz. The water is warm and shallow. The fishing is excellent. The SANDBAR RESTAURANT is a 5 minute stroll down the beach.

The unit is light and bright with a multitude of windows showcasing BREATHTAKING GULF VIEWS. Everything has been recently updated in a coastal decor featuring hand painted starfish on the walls. Some of the key amenities include a 47" Flat Panel HIGH DEFINITION TV, BOSE BLUETOOTH audio system, free lightning fast WI FI INTERNET and a Stearns & Foster (firm) KING SIZE BED.

Don't hesitate to call or email with any questions. Local owner/operator who takes pride in offering the best accommodations on Anna Maria. This is the BEST VALUE on the vacation rental market!

About Stephanie

Three things I cannot live without; coffee, wine and chocolate. My hobbies include exercise (spinning and body pump are my favorites), playing the piano and spending time with my family. Married with two wonderful children. Originally from Stillwater, MN, I vacationed in Anna Maria for many years before making it my adopted hometown. As a former flight attendant, I have been to exotic beaches all over the world. I can honestly say that I've never seen a nicer beach than the one right here in Anna Maria.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2004

Why Stephanie chose Anna Maria

We purchased this home 100% because of it's location. The view out of each west facing window is breathtaking. The property is located on a quiet dead end street and is only a few steps to one of the most pristine beaches in the world.

The house was great! Everything was so clean and in good order. Well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, the property was very convenient to the beach, had a great view of the Gulf, and was furnished with everything we needed inside and for the beach. We appreciated how clean everything was and that we had to bring very little with us. The house had very comfortable furnishings, and I loved having morning coffee on the top deck. Very relaxing stay, can’t wait to return!

Amazing location and gorgeous sunsets!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our 2nd anniversary and it was perfect! The house was clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed and was just steps from the beach. Beautiful white sand with some of the Gulf's best sunsets. We'll definitely be back!!

Beautiful, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We adored Anna Maria Island and especially loved our stay in this apartment that is no more than 50 yards from the beach. I stayed with my husband and two young children, 1 and 5, in a two bedroom apartment that more than accommodated all of us. Stephanie has everything you'd need for a comfortable stay: beach toys, chairs and umbrellas, lovely linens that made me feel like I was in a luxury hotel, and a cozy kitchen and living room with everything you could need for a stay with the family. The location on the island is pretty ideal, not just because of the beach. This northern part of Anna Maria Island is much quieter than other parts but still has tons of great amenities: cute little restaurants and at least two places to rent bikes are within walking distance of the apartment. If you stay here you are less than three blocks from the best muffins ever (Ginny and Jane Es) and the Donut Experiment, where you'll eat the best donuts of your life. The coffee at both places was also awesome and I'm a coffee snob. While our beach was great, you can also explore other little beaches nearby just on your bike. My favorite part of the week was biking around the island, exploring all the great beaches around. I loved this island so much and I can't wait to come back. Highly, highly recommended.

This home is every bit as wonderful as described! Sensational location and views! Stephanie is a fantastic host and answered all questions quickly and took care of any arrangements we needed. The place is spotless and beautiful. Everything we could need for a family getaway with our infant and toddler. Thank you!!
