About Mary Jo Cancelmo

Eighth generation Floridian who uses this house as a vacation home for the family. Owner uses this unit while children and their families use the top unit. Perfect for this situation!!!

Mary Jo Cancelmo purchased this House in 2008

Why Mary Jo Cancelmo chose Anna Maria

Home was built by a famous local sports commentator, who used the local fishing pier for his broadcasts. Owner chose this property because of its location on the prestigious location on the furthermost northern tip of the island, its walking distance to fishing piers and Pine Avenue shopping, and its sixty steps to the most isolated beach on the island. Previously, family has had vacation places in Crescent Beach, Ponte Verdre, and Siesta Key. We love this area the best for its 'old Florida' feel and for the love of the Gulf as compared to the Atlantic Ocean. When this property came up for sale, we jumped at it because of its unique architecture and proximity to the quietest beach on the island. The duplex style lends itself to allowing the owner to 'enjoy' her grown four children and their children while still having the availability to retreat in order to gain her 'sanity' again.

What makes this House unique

Beach perimeters change on Florida's coastline. Right now, our beach is the widest and has considerable depth.(Great for knowing it is not going to wash away.) Silky sands, wonderful dunes, and a protected environmental area for sea turtles. Best fishing area on the island. Best shelling on the island. Quietest area on the island, most unpopulated by public traffic. Walk to Pine Street where you find restuarants, shops, and a free trolley stop to all areas of Anna Maria. Runs until 11PM. On the Gulf side of Bean Point....less current than bay side. Clear gulf waters, great fishing from the shore, most isolated beach on the island, walking distance to restaurants, shopping areas of Pine Avenue, and fishing piers.

                                                                We loved the Coconuts! It was just big enough for three of us (two adults, one child). The area is beautiful, the weather was unbelievable and the soft sandy beaches amazing.

                                                                Beautiful area. Enjoyed the north end. The sunrise and sunsets. The dolphins , manatees, sea bird's. Rented bike's and rode everywhere easily.

                                                                We had a very nice time at Coconuts. Once we discovered the beach access further up, it was much easier to get to the beach. We liked being able to walk to The Sandbar and Rod and Reel. The area was very quiet and there was not much traffic.

                                                                Thanks for your response....the shorelines on coastal waters change almost every season along with the width of the beach depending on the winds and amounts of storm surge. On our western side , our beach has grown wider for the past two years. But as pointed out, if you don't use the beach access directly across from our property, you can use two other accesses located less than a block either way...one puts you just around Bean Point, looking more at Tampa Bay with a much smaller beach, the other at the corner of what is usually a cove to our beach.....hurricane wise...right now, the wide beach provides hurricane protection and places for the sea turtles to lay their nests.

                                                                Two story duplex, upper and lower units located north end of the island. Less populated and quieter part of island. Walk to Pine Ave. (AM main street) and catch the free trolley to any part of the island. Bradenton is just across the bridge. Sarasota, St. Armands Key only a 30 minute drive.
