LOCATED IN THE VILLAGE OF ANNA MARIA! CANAL FRONT HEATED POOL HOME 3 BED 3 BATH
You and your family will love staying in this beautiful three-bedroom, three-bath home nestled on the banks of Lake LaVista, just one block north of Pine Avenue in the village of Anna Maria. Everything you're looking for in a vacation rental home is right here...a lovely view, a large heated pool (pool heat is extra!), updated kitchen and bathrooms, lots of privacy, and super easy access to our island attractions!
With over 2100 square feet of ground-floor living space, you'll have plenty of room to relax and enjoy your surroundings. The large dining room table is the perfect spot for family gatherings, and the expansive, well-equipped kitchen will make it easy for everyone to pitch in when it's time for meal preparation.
Two bedrooms and one bathroom are located down the hallway and can be closed off for additional privacy, while the master bedroom features a King Bed, an en suite bath, private patio area, and beautiful views over Lake LaVista.
Although every room in the house is beautifully decorated with coastal design, the prettiest part of this house is, without a doubt, the large backyard. Loads of windows and sliding glass doors provide a terrific view from most rooms, along with easy access to this inviting oasis. The large heated pool is child-friendly with a shallow area at both ends. And stretching the length of this extra-large property is Lake LaVista, a beautiful meandering waterway that leads out to Tampa Bay. The property has a boat lift that is available for use as well as a dock. Boaters, please keep in mind that the one fixed bridge between the house and Tampa Bay allows only a 7 foot clearance at high tide.
When you're ready for the beach, an easy walk or bike ride will take you to the Sand Bar Restaurant by the Gulf, or to the Historic Anna Maria City Pier near the Bay. You'll find shops and restaurants en route, along with the Anna Maria Community Theater and the Anna Maria Historical Society Museum, as well as fun street festivals several times a year. A stop for the free Island Trolley is just at the end of the street when you're ready for adventures a little further down the island!
Sleeps 8 in beds, but there's plenty of room if you'd like to have www.FunandMoreRentals.com bring in a couple of rollaway beds for the kids.
A NOTE ABOUT HEATED POOLS: Since running pool heat is a very expensive proposition for our owners, they ask that we collect $100 per week (plus tax) from guests requesting the pool at their rental property be heated.

Why Edward G DeLosh Sr chose Anna Maria
Our location is absolutely wonderful; I can walk to the Gulf beaches at the Sand Bar, or over to the Historic City Pier in 5 or 7 minutes, with shops, restaurants, the theater, Post Office, and everything else in between, including a stop for the free trolley at the end of the road. And, of course, you can't beat the double-sized yard, big pool, and beautiful views over Lake LaVista.
What makes this House unique
Our canal is called 'Lake LaVista' because when early settlers came to the Island in the late 1800's, it was really a lake, complete with a very large alligator! Developers a few decades later dredged an opening from Tampa Bay to the Lake by the Historic Anna Maria City Pier. The alligators, by the way, are long gone, but we see fabulous displays of nature, including the occasional manatee cruising by, as well as every imaginable island bird. As a matter of fact, the house is named for a great blue heron that we call 'Max,' and a white heron we named 'Denise.' Max and Denise are still frequent visitors to our home, along with Mavis & Madge, ducks who occasionally splash in our pool, and Winky & Moe, starfish who live by our seawall.

Outstanding property. Perfectly located, well appointed, beautiful views on the canal and probably the best pool on Anna Maria Island. Easy walk to downtown Anna Maria and the beach. A wonderful two weeks.
Lovely home for a family getaway.
Would definitely rent again.

Hi Julie, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay! We think this home has everything for the perfect vacation. -Ed & Candy, Owners, Beach Rentals
Fabulous home inside and out
There are so many good things to say about this home I don’t know where to start. It is beautifully decorated with quality furniture and appliances. The master bed was huge and extremely comfortable as were the other rooms. The open plan living, dining and kitchen space was excellent with plenty of seating. Other great features were the washer dryer room and the large double garage stocked with stuff for the beach. Outside is really amazing and the pictures don’t convey just how much space there is. The pool is larger than most shared pools you get at a condominium great for swimming or just lazing about in. Down by the dock is ideal for sunbathing and watching the wildlife go bye. Fantastic property and would love to return again.
Barry, thank you so much for your review! We're so glad you enjoyed all the features of this home - we agree that the Lake La Vista dock is perfect for sunbathing! We look forward to your return! -Ed & Candy, Owners, Beach Rentals
Loved the house!
Great location for this house. We enjoyed the serene outdoor setting very much and the house had everything we needed. We enjoyed fishing from the dock when we had too much sun at the beach and pool. Very close to the local piers, The Donut Experiment and Two Scoops ice cream shop. One suggestion would be to add lighting to the dock area in case someone wants to fish in the evening. Otherwise, everything was wonderful with the house!
Thank you for your review! This is a great location--we love The Donut Experiment, Two Scoops, and all the other great local food! We have noted your suggestion about lighting as we are always working to improve our properties. Hope to see you again soon! --Candy and Ed, Owners, BeachRentals
Frong and back!
As you approach this one storey property from the front it is, frankly, fairly standard. Go inside and all that changes. It has masses of space, is superbly finished and has stunning light from huge glass section. Outside is as good maybe better. A huge pool, the biggest we have seen in 25 years visiting AMI. Lovely garden and then shingled area overlooking a wide part of the waterway, it's like having your own mini beach. Great location just North of Pine with easy walking access to several of the best restaurants. Loved it, thanks.
Thanks for your review. We love this property for its spaciousness, location, and wonderful decor. We will look forward to hosting you again soon! -Candy and Ed, Owners, BeachRentals
