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.

Notes:
PLEASE NOTE that they are doing some construction next door. It is primarily a 2 man remodeling team. The neighborhood has very strict rules on when they can start and when they can finish. The carpenters are very polite and considerate. Most guests are out and about or at the beach during the day so this is a total non-issue, but if you have a special sensitivity to this type of thing, please contact me and I will give you complete and current details. Thank you!

Very nice condo close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week on Anna Maria Island. The condo is well equipped, clean, nicely decorated and well-maintained. They also have a shed with beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys etc. We were traveling with our kids (7 and 4) and enjoyed to have only a short walk to the beach.

We hope to be back soon.

Beautiful gulf views

  • 5 of 5

I wanted a place where we could walk to the beach & we could watch the sunset from our deck. I got it here. The beach is only a 2 minute walk away. I walked the uncrowded beach every morning and watched the sunset while either sitting on the beach or the deck every night. On the north end of the island the streets are also not crowded so I could walk or bike without worrying about traffic. We ate at the Sandbar restaurant 3 times . I highly recommend it.

Great little place on the beach with views!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay on the island. Great little area and slice of “Old Florida”. We had a great stay here at the house. Great views and so very quiet! Easy walking to the beach and fun stuff all around. A perfect little beach getaway.

Anna Maria Visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed this location, walk to the beach, view from 2nd floor which is what we occupied. We were in walking distance to breakfast, lunch, dinner, sunsets and the beach for shelling, long walks. Our area was tastefully decorated, well maintained. It was quiet even though there was new construction going on next door. The did not start work too early and quit in plenty of time for a quiet evening. There were chairs for the beach, towels, laundry. We will be back!
