3 bedroom, 3 bath, Canal front, Saltwater Pool, only minutes to the Beach

This beautiful canal front home is located on a quiet street in the exclusive north end of Anna Maria Island. The tastefully decorated 3 bedrooms, 3 baths home was updated in 2004 and sleeps up to 8 people. The home is a block to Tampa Bay and three blocks to the sugar sand beach on the Gulf. It’s also just two blocks to the quaint shopping and restaurants of Pine Avenue and the City Pier.

The back yard is your own private piece of paradise. The salt water pool is nestled among native palms, sea oats and mangroves for a very private experience. You’ll have your choice of two dining areas, a gas grill, and chaise lounges in the sun or the shade.

It’s a short trip on boat or kayak from the dock to Bimini Bay, Tampa Bay, Egmont and Longboat Keys, and the Gulf of Mexico. There are a number of waterfront restaurants close by where you can dock and enjoy a great meal.

If watercrafts aren’t your thing, the dock in your back yard is also a great place to fish, or just to sit and enjoy a beverage, watch the mullet jump and see the seabirds skim the water. In the winter months, it's not unusual to see dolphins and manatees cruise by.

If you must leave the island, the nearby Sarasota / Bradenton area is known for the arts, dining, shopping and baseball Spring training. Less than an hour North over the Skyway bridge is Saint Petersburg, with its Baywalk and Dali museum, and a little further North over the causeway puts you in Tampa with its own arts, sports and history, and a great Aquarium.

Whatever you choose to do – this beautiful home and Island is a great place to do it – or to just relax and do nothing at all.

Why Giovanna chose Anna Maria

Florida's west coast beaches have always been our favorite ones, and when we visited Anna Maria for the first time we immediately fell in love with it. The easy going life style of the island, sugar sand beaches, dolphins, manatees, birds! A year later we were living in PARADISE!

What makes this House unique

We loved the location of the home mainly because of the quite street. It's very secluded yet close to everything. We lived just a short time at Tarpon Home, and hope to come back and enjoy the island again. The things that I miss about AMI are: Sunrise walks on the beach (all the way to the tip of the island), sunsets out on our dock, the residents and of course people like you that come to explore this beautiful place. We are so blessed to have a place here and be able to share it with you. Please treat yourself and enjoy AMI life while you are at our Tarpon home.

                                                              Amazing holiday!

                                                              I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. The villa is beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. The location is wonderful and we could walk to the beach, City Pier and Rod and Reel pier. The pool area is private and not over looked and the mooring out the back was a wonderful place to spot wildlife, every day we would be out there watching the birds and we even saw manatee swim by which was amazing. It was so peaceful. There were 3 adults and 3 children in our party and the villa was perfect. The owner was great and contacted us on several occasions to check everything was ok. This really was a holiday of a lifetime and we went home with fantastic memories. Thank you so much!

                                                              Gorgeous and wonderful owner to work with

                                                              We just stayed for 13 nights. We are a family of 7 and could not have had a better time. Rented bikes and a boat. Asked the owner to replace the grill because it was rusted out from the salt air. She replaced it immediately with a stainless steel version. Thank you!

                                                              Beautiful home with great layout and water access!

                                                              This home is beautiful and has a great layout, especially for families with little ones. It is located right on a canal which is perfect for guests who want to bring their boat like we do. The house is clean and well equipped with mostly everything you can think of. Giovanna (owner) was great to work with and was quick to respond to us with any questions we had during our stay. We will definitely re-book in the future :)

                                                              Beautiful Canal Front Property

                                                              My wife and I have visited many HomeAway properties over the years, and this one ranks among the best. It was very clean and well stocked with those little things you don't think to bring from home. The backyard is dominated by the fresh water pool, and is directly adjacent to a canal. You can move from sun to shade without leaving the pool at all hours of the day. The location of this home is ideal, in that it is on a side street within walking distance of many of Anna Maria's restaurants. Highly recommend this property.

                                                              Thank you so much for this lovely review. It was also a pleasure to have you as our guests. You were very respectful of our home and we do really appreciate that.

                                                              I'm glad you were able to relax and enjoy the island.

                                                              If you come back to AMI please look us up again.
