About Liz and Frank
We live in Tampa about an hour away. We can be there or send someone should you need assistance.
Liz and Frank purchased this House in 2005
Why Liz and Frank chose Anna Maria
This beautiful beach is well known all over the world, it just begs to be owned and shared with loved ones. You will feel like you are on a cruise ship as you sit upstairs and watch the lively activity just 8 feet below you.
What makes this House unique
This house is one of the few properties that still has the original 1950's house on the ground level. It has a separate entrance and is mostly used for personal storage, renters do not have access to this area. But the outdoor shower along the private boardwalk is a fun extra that is included. Beach toys, chairs and umbrellas are in the open storage area available for your use.

This is our second year in a row to stay on the bay side in AMI. Once you do, you will see why it’s so awesome. Every single day, you will see families of dolphin swim by and a manatee swims right up to people. The house is very comfortable and clean. We did not go out to dinner because we had the best view you can get anywhere. We cooked every night in the very well equipped kitchen and had our favorite beverage on the deck every day. We spent the rest of our time enjoying the beach. Our 10 year old caught and released blue crabs, hermit crabs, little fish, starfish and sand dollars. We went fishing at the Rod and Real and rented a pontoon boat for the day.
Liz and Frank were great to work with and responded immediately to any questions. We are looking forward to our trip next year and will be booking this house again!!
We are so glad you had a great time in the beach house. The views on this north side of Anna Maria Island are great, the skyway bridge at night is stunning, the sunrises and sunsets from your private backyard are fabulous. We are happy that you enjoyed our little slice of paradise. Thank you for being such great guests.
It was a really nice house! The beach was beautiful! If you want to see a lot of animals then this is the house for you! I would definitely stay again. Thank you very much for letting us stay at your beautiful house!
Thank you, we love sharing this paradise with others. It has only been a year of sharing and we feel so good about letting others stay at our beach house. The birds, crabs, manatees, dolphins, tarpon and possible turtle sightings are always amazing! I love the sunsets and sunrises, too!!!
We loved it !
We stayed here in early May and it’s a wonderful place to vacation ! It was clean and well kept and beautifully furnished .
It was very well stocked with everything a family would need aside from food . It had some basic spices, oil, creamer , tea bags , paper towels ,dish soap and a fully stocked kitchen for cooking and eating and cleaning .
There was also laundry detergent and a first aid kit too which we used twice ! If you have a baby there was a pack n play and high chair and a baby gate. Loved having a washer and dryer !
The entire home has 10 ? Ft ceilings and many windows so it feels very open and spacious.
The living room was stocked with all manner of games under the tv. The house came with a bunch of beach chairs, umbrellas, floats, masks and sand toys which came in handy since we flew into Tampa rather than driving.
It was wonderful to wake up in the morning and watch the sunrise and hear the ocean waves while we sat on the deck .
We stayed with 4 adults (me ,husband , 21 and 18 yr old sons ) and three kids (7,10and 13) and we were all very comfortable .
Friends brought over their jet skis for an afternoon and we jet skied over to passage key which you can see from the deck . It was amazing for shelling . Sandollars ,conch shells and giant coquinas abound. We also rented a kayak and my older boys kayaked over in Bimini bay and had a great time!
I enjoyed that the kids could play right there on the beach while I sat on the deck because it was so close . We were able to see manatee go by in the shallow water everyday and some dolphins in the distance .The only thing I think I wanted that I didn’t see was a rake to rake away the seaweed that would wash up every morning ;).
We’d definetly love to come back !
We are so glad you enjoyed our island paradise. I wish I had left the rake out for you, I never really use it, the beach tends to clean itself with the tides. Thanks for the idea I will leave it out now! I was here today and there were lots of fishing boats out trying to catch the rolling tarpon, so cool! I even saw a box turtle outback, I had not seen him in about 8 years. Hope to see you in years to come!
Enjoyed staying there very much.
Very nice. Unfortunately the water level was a bit high on the beach. Not a real problem. The neighbors said they were surprised how high the water was even from last year. The house had everything and more than we needed to feel right at home. Hope to return.
We always love to hear good reviews thank you so much. We are so glad that you had a good time, the water level always depends on the weather, we can't help that but it always makes it interesting. At least you could see the animals up close!!
Best vacation ever!
Our family rented this beautiful beach house 11 nights. I liked the flexibility of days we could book in the time frame available.
There was tons of room in the house for a family of 4 with 2 young toddlers. Lots of toys outside to play with.
Seeing dolphins and manatees with our kids everyday was a highlight, we didn't even have to go on any boat excursions because there was so much wildlife to see there.
We ate everyday at the house because no other place had a better view than there.
On calm days the water is crystal clear and really fun to play in all day long.
We went in April and the weather was nice and hot and the water was really warm.
The owners texted us to make sure we had everything we needed and we did. I cannot say enough good things about this place. We are already thinking about going back next year to this same place. We had so much fun here, I could go on and on all day!
The only suggestion I would have is maybe upgrade the BBQ, it took a long time to cook our food. But this would not stop us from coming back.
Thank you to Liz and Frank for letting us use your beautiful beach home!! We will be back!!
We enjoyed our stay on Anna Maria island, quiet with plenty of wildlife just outside the door. Lovely area with gorgeous sunsets at Bean Point. Very comfortable, nicely furnished home.
Yes, we totally love the wildlife viewing and picture taking from the house! Everyday is full of surprises, birds, fish and even awesome weather bring opportunities to appreciate the fullness of nature from this vantage point.
