Read our Feedback, 100% POSITIVE. This is without a doubt the CLEANEST and BRIGHTEST vacation rental you will find on the island! This beach bungalow is the GROUND FLOOR UNIT of a beach front duplex. (The 2 bedroom upper level unit is available as VRBO #260347)

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 charming BEACH HOUSE is tucked away on a VERY QUIET STREET in the sleepy north end of the Island. 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 30 seconds from the most PRISTINE BEACH 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. Everything has been recently updated in a fun coastal decor featuring hand painted starfish on the walls. Featured amenities include a 47' Flat Panel HIGH DEFINITION TV with BLUE RAY DISC player and a great selection of movies, BOSE BLUETOOTH AUDIO, and LIGHTNING FAST WI FI INTERNET. Some key features include PEEKS OF THE GULF, Mediterranean Style TERRAZZO Floors. The gourmet kitchen has GRANITE countertops, STAINLESS appliances and a MARGARITAVILLE FROZEN CONCOCTION MAKER.

Please DON'T HESITATE TO CALL or email with any questions. Book early because the premium dates will fill up fast. With its ultra premium location and brand new amenities, this is the BEST VALUE on the vacation rental market!

About Stephanie

Originally from Minnesota, my husband and I moved here with our children to live the dream. That dream being, residing in a small beach community with pristine beaches and powdered sugar sand. Safe, quiet streets, and a great sense of community.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2004

Why Stephanie chose Anna Maria Island

We purchased this home 100% because of its location. 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.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home never disappoints us. Stephanie and Mike keep it so comfortable. The property is located close to the beach and also Pine Ave. It has everything you need for the beach, and when the weather doesn't cooperate, staying in is even fun. We have stayed her for several years and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to AMI and we were blown away by its beauty and charm. The home was well maintained and had everything you could want or need. It was super clean with plenty of towels and beach chairs. We did use the grill one night for dinner and cooked the others in the remodeled kitchen. We brought food with us which was not necessary because there is a Publix three miles down the road. The store was stocked and had whatever you could want. We rented a golf cart which was a major plus in making it easy to get around the island and see all the beautiful homes. Being in the open air while site seeing made for a fantastic ride. Plus it keeps all the sand for getting tracked in your car. Lol The golf carts are street legal and the speed limit on the island is mostly 25mph. The beach is gorgeous and the sunsets are amazing. Can't wait to come back to this home.

Thank you Stephanie for being such a gracious host.

Amazing place! Our favorite spot on Anna Maria Island!

  • 5 of 5

Well-appointed charming beach house right off one of the more secluded beaches on Anna Maria. Everything you need for a great beach vacation is provided, from umbrellas to chairs, to a full kitchen, state of the art appliances (washer and dryer), beautifully laid out with great sleeping accommodations. Nothing about this place disappoints. We would highly recommend it! The proprietor is available and more than helpful. We've been there two years in a row now and can't wait for our next visit.

A pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

Stephanie thought of everything. This house was well stocked with everything you need. I do recommend you bringing your own beach chairs. The ones there at the house are like most that stay at the beach for a season or so, rusted. This wasn't a big deal for us as we ran to the store and purchased new ones fairly cheap, just keep that in mind when you get ready to head to the beach. Overall, very pleased.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

So very happy with this gem! My family and I wanted to go to the beach one last time before school started and we were quite pleased this home. Excellent location, the kids didn't have to cross any roads to get to the beach, it was only steps away from the front door. They were able to come and go from the house to the beach by themselves without having to worry about crossing a busy road. The kids boogie boarded for hours! Yes, we had large waves from an unexpected storm and they loved it. I will keep this place in mind for future beach getaways for sure. Beautiful sunsets too!
