Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

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, 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 in Anna Maria!

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 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.

Notes:
PLEASE NOTE that they are doing some construction next door. It is 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!

True Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at this property and it was as good as the first. The rental is very well appointed but extremely comfortable. They really have provided many things I have never found at another rental. I am already trying to figure out when I can get back there.

Great beach house

1 minute walk to beach and quick walk to great beachside restaurant. Kitchen is very well stocked and plenty of beach toys, chairs, and umbrellas. Definitely recommended if looking for family friendly place in AMI.

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lower unit of this beach house and had a great time! The house itself was clean and comfortable with everything you need. It is literally steps to the beach, which is amazing. Also located very close to lots of dining options, ice cream shops, general store, etc. We also rented a golf cart and had fun cruising around the island. The owner, Stephanie, was very easy to communicate with. Definitely recommend this home!

Perfect location on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing time and the owner made sure all the amenities were taken care of from paper goods and dish soap to beach towels and gear. Walking distance to many shops and eateries. We will be back for sure.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect long weekend on Anna Maria Island. We've been back 4 years now and re-upped for next year. The house is spotless. Stephanie is so gracious and accommodating. Then there's the gorgeous beach, just a 2 minute walk. Idyllic.
