Car: Recommended

Anna Maria is beautiful with its many amenities and activities. Easy 'on-off' island access, and friendly island atmosphere. The neighborhood trolley will take you where you want to go at no charge!

Escape to a beautiful area where the sunsets are spectacular, the waters aquamarine, and enjoy the tropical breezes overlooking the Gulf. There are many shops and restaurants within walking distance.

There is plenty of beach fun, fishing, biking, shopping, boating, and golf. The Mote Aquarium, Selby Gardens and Planetarium are close by

in Sarasota, and several Florida attractions are just a quick drive away.

Anna Maria Island supports a very special ecology and 'Old Florida feel.'. The laid-back lifestyle allows time to step back from the hectic stress and just walk on the beach, or enjoy a relaxing picnic at sunset.

Surrounded by the lush sub-tropical growth and island birds, you feel the peace and calmness of Times gone by... Once you've visited this island, you'll want to come back.

You can choose between a slow, leisurely, relaxing beach get-away, or a fast-paced, sight-seeing, & activity-filled vacation, or a little of both--activities are endless.

There is a Publix supermarket, Walgreens & CVS drug stores, gift shops, beach stores, 2 cafes, and BBQ, German, Japanese, & Chinese restaurants are all within 1/2 mile. ATMs and banks are nearby.

Who needs a swimming pool when you can swim in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico?????

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My husband is a Floridian, and we moved back to Florida from Nebraska in 1985 when our children were very young. This duplex was owned by a special aunt, and we bought it from her, with other family members, in 2002. It was built in 1954. My husband and I recently turned 60. He is a radiologist and myself a registered nurse. We have four adult sons that range between the ages of 26-33. We have had some memorable times and wonderful summer vacations, shared with extended family and friends. We have been coming to the island for 30 plus years, and feel most 'relaxed' when we are here...It is easy to fall in love with the sunny, 'sugar sand' beaches, and the relaxing way of life--whether you are reading a good book, floating in the warm gentle waters, or walking along the beautiful beach watching the amazing sunsets. We also have a VAIL TIMESHARE for week-Jan. 9-Jan 16 2016 only. Usually rents for $3000.00 (Vail Run Resort) Will negotiate rent if interested--contact me for information.

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
Anna Maria is the perfect 'Get-a-way from it all.' It is easy to enjoy the simple pleasures of life here.. The duplex is very cozy and rustic in a quaint, secluded neighborhood. It is located only a block from the beach, well within walking distance. There are many nice shops, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. within the neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Anna Maria is beautiful with its many amenities and activities. Easy 'on-off' island access, and friendly island atmosphere. The neighborhood trolley will take you where you want to go at no charge! Escape to a beautiful area where the sunsets are spectacular, the waters aquamarine, and enjoy the tropical breezes overlooking the Gulf. There is plenty of beach fun, fishing, biking, shopping, and boating,
