Why Joe Brown chose Anna Maria Island

We chose to buy on AMI because when we crossed over the bridge from the mainland you enter a world of old Florida charm, sugary white beaches, pelicans and palm trees. No fast food, high rises or stressed out people allowed! ~

Stay on AMI....and you will feel like a true islander.

What makes this house unique

Location location....Very private quiet street, heated pool and 1 block to beach.....your own bikes, plenty of beach and pool toys....... come have it all !!

A perfectly located, well-equipped bungalow on fabulous Anna Maria Island equals a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our second stay at Joe Brown's beach bungalow with my cousin and her husband. The swimming pool was so refreshing and well landscaped. It was very hot at the end of September so we spent a great deal of time in the pool. It provided a great balance of sunshine and shade. The home was very clean and comfortable and well equipped with beach towels, swimming pool gear, bikes, and beach chairs. The beach is just a five minute walk from the home. We especially enjoyed walking along the shore to Homes Beach for lunch at the concession stand where the food is surprisingly delicious and reasonably priced. Later in the afternoon there is usually entertainment on the patio. The Sandbar restaurant on the north end of Anna Maria Island was also a favorite. We ate out almost every night and each restaurant we went to on Anna Maria was very good - love all that seafood. We definitely want to return again next year!

Perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 loved the house! It was was decorated nicely and was clean. It was great to have a washer and dryer. The kitchen was very well equipped. It was so nice to have games to play and extra books to read. The pool was great! It was also nice to have pool toys, beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas and the wagon to haul it all to the beach! Tucked away in a good, quiet location. Joe checked in mid week to make sure all was well. Would definitely stay again! Thanks Joe!

great family vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We enjoy coming here so much, we keep returning. The home is clean and well maintained. The pool and backyard has a tropical feel and is private. Every amenity is available, parking for 2 cars and bicycles included. It is located just a block from a nice white sand beach. You won't be disappointed here.
