About the Property

3 Bedrooms 3 Bath House With Gulf Views, Walk to Beach, Shops, Cafes

Our family vacation home is unpretentious and well loved, as the property has been in our family for almost 60 years. The house sits a mere 150 steps down the road from the soft, white sandy beach on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and a short stroll away from the heart of Anna Maria (Pine Avenue) where you can find boutique shopping, dining, cafes and scooter/bike rental. Around the corner, you will find a bakery, a sandwich shop, an ice cream parlor and souvenirs galore.

Car: Not Necessary

If you are looking for a five star resort, Anna Maria is not for you. High-rises and resort clubs are prohibited on the island; most rentals are second homes belonging to families who have been coming here for generations. Our beach house is filled with old school charm and serves as a comfortable place for folks to gather and relax. the third floor kitchen is sufficient for cooking dinner, with enough room in the adjoining dining/living area to entertain your whole family or group of friends. The third floor balcony boasts some beautiful views of the beach, and especially the sunset. The three bedrooms are located on the second floor, two of which open up to a screened in porch. Our mother's fisherman cousin lives next door, so don't forget to pop over and purchase some of his delicious fresh fish caught that morning off of Anna Maria. Stroll on over to the Sandbar for dinner and some live island music, or walk down Pine Avenue and check out a plethora of cafes and boutiques. Ginny and Janey's, around the corner, sells home made giant cinnamon rolls (my children's favorite) and bottomless coffee for breakfast. Bring a great book (or borrow one of ours) and relax on quite possibly one of the most beautiful beaches in the country.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1959

About the owner: Our home is a family home, as we have enjoyed Anna Maria for many generations. We are responsive owners who will work with you quickly to resolve any problem. We know the real Anna Maria, and our home will open it up to you.

Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria, FL, USA:
Location, location location! Our mother bought this property nearly 60 years ago hoping that her future children and grandchildren would enjoy coming to Anna Maria as much as she did growing up. Prosperity on the island has grown since then, but the location of our property is still amazing! We are steps from the gorgeous beach, and a short stroll away from what is considered the heart of Anna Maria- Pine Avenue.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is a comfortable, unpretentious place to relax and put your feet up. The third floor boasts an open kitchen concept with dining/living room. French doors open up to a balcony. Besides wi-fi, there is a DVD player to hunker down and watch a late night movie or two, (our favorite is JAWS, of course) or borrow one of our books to enjoy. Trust us, you'll want to take an evening walk on the sand down by the water which is close proximity to the house.
