About the property

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.

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!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely fantastic! The reviews were all accurate: super close to the beach which isn't overly crowded, plenty of towels, kitchen is stocked, owner responds quickly and checks in with you during your trip. We stayed over the 4th so we enjoyed the parade 2 blocks away and fireworks right on the beach. We saw gorgeous sunsets from the beach right by the house every night and made our way to the pier for sunrise on our final day. We can't wait to visit again! If you are considering this house, trust me, go ahead and hit the button to book it!

Great Spot to Spend Time with Family

  • 5 of 5

Our stay (June, 2017) was really a great time at a great house. It is located on the Northern part of Anna Maria put close to Pine Street, piers, some shopping, restaurants, etc. The house is located one house off the beach with very easy access to and from the ocean. The house itself is exactly what we expected from other reviewers. It is extremely clean and well put together. Supplies are more than adequate and Stephanie is just a text or call away if you need anything. She is very helpful and accommodating. We rented both floors of the house and each floor was fantastic for our needs. If your family is looking for a nice, clean place close to the beach as well as shopping, eating, etc then this house is a fine pick!!
