**Please note! Pool heater in our home is locked for your safety and controls must not be tampered with as they are monitored by the pool company. 80° is the highest heat temperature setting. Pool temperatures will probably stay around 75° during the winter months. Please note if cold days occur, water temperatures will drop and may stay cooler longer. Pool heaters will not operate and will automatically shut down if outside temperatures get too cold. While we take every precaution to ensure that pool is heated as specified, weather conditions may affect the temperature of the pool. Nothing can be done about this issue. Outdoor spa is not a hot tub. The temperature of the spa is set at the same temperature as the pool. Guests should not expect hot tub like temperatures for pool spas. In the event of pool equipment malfunctions during your stay, we will expedite repairs as quickly as possible. It may be necessary to close the swimming pool for maintenance purposes. No refund or rent adjustment will be made for circumstances beyond our control, malfunctions or loss of use of equipment or amenities.

About Anna Prokop

Originally from Poland, we moved to Bradenton/Sarasota area in 2013 after living in Maryland's Washington DC suburbs for over 25 years. We have 2 teens and have discovered Anna Maria Island several years ago when coming to Florida for our annual amusement parks trips. After many visits to the Island we decided to move to the area permanently. We bought a farm in Myakka City which is next to Bradenton and Sarasota and moved there permanently in the Summer of 2013.

Anna Prokop purchased this house in 2011

Why Anna Prokop chose Anna Maria Island

We found this house in 2011 as it was being built. We were attracted by two things: its size and comfort as it's much bigger than most 6 bedroom houses on the Island and by its unique Clark Lake location. Many people on the island don't even know that this lake exists because it is not readily visible from the street. The lake offers wonderful views and an opportunity to observe wildlife that frequents its waters. For instance, there is a gray heron that visits the yard each morning. It is very neat to watch it while eating breakfast.

What makes this house unique

Sarasota-Bradenton Florida, also known as the “culture coast,” is a melting pot of artists, executives, philanthropists, and beach-lovers from all over the world. The sugar-white sands and vast expanses of warm, shallow, aqua-blue waters draw people from the other side of the world to the center of the state. Though Sarasota-Bradenton is part of the greater Tampa-St. Petersburg metropolitan area, it has a style that is distinctly all its own, and is separated by the natural boundary of Tampa Bay. The well recognized Sunshine Skyway Bridge links Sarasota-Bradenton with its big brother to the north.

Over 650,000 residents call Sarasota-Bradenton their home, in organic communities like Northwest Bradenton, to planned communities like Lakewood Ranch and Palmer Ranch to the south. Longboat Key is host to one of the wealthiest zip codes in the country. Siesta Key is known for its beautiful beaches and nightlife, where Anna Maria Island is a virtual melting pot of all types of people. If sports are your passion, the area host spring training baseball teams, offers endless water sports, fishing and boating, and has one of the highest saturation of golf courses in the country.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying here! Our huge family rented several houses in the area and everyone thought ours was the best – we loved the open kitchen, living, dining and took advantage of the short walk to the beach as often as possible. Good times were had by all, especially our guest of honor whose 90th birthday was the reason we gathered to celebrate.

Best bday/family beach trip in a LONG TIME!!

  • 5 of 5

What a WONDERFUL experience from start to finish! Anna was quick to answer any and all questions I had prior to booking, and even provided a large crate for my sister's dog for our stay. When we arrived, everything was beautiful and clean and the AC was on, which is crucial in this Florida heat. We are a family of 8 and there was room to spare in this lovely home. The kitchen had anything one might need to cook with, and even a good selection of spices (though we brought our own, not knowing). The outdoor grill/bar area was a delight, as was the pool, which was a wonderful temperature no matter what time of day we went in. The house is a 5min stroll to the beach, and the garage has just about any pool/beach accessory you might need (including a cart to carry them in). There are towels and linens a-plenty, and there was hotel-sized shampoo/soaps. It truly was one of the best beach houses we have stayed at, and felt like a true home away from home. The memories we made on this trip are priceless, and we definitely will be planning on future trips in this epic house!

Fantastic rental!

  • 5 of 5

We just go back from spending the 4th of July at this great home with 16 people. The house was clean, well stocked, walking distance to the beach and had plenty of room for everyone. The pool was a big hit since it had depth as well as shade with the tiki bar. Many hours spent with the kids playing or just relaxing on the floats. We had a few minor issues with the pool but they were prompt in responding and we were never without it. Ana was quick to respond by text with any issues and was very accommodating. Had buggies for the beach, bikes, a ping pong table, big screen tv's. Kids had a blast and the adults enjoyed it just as much. Would highly recommend this rental. Only drawbacks were that the fridge couldn't contain enough for 16 people. Another full size fridge would have been helpful. We are thinking of renting again next summer.

Best Beach Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

What a great home and perfect location in North Holmes Beach! It was spacious, very nicely decorated, and the pool was a hit with kids and adults. It is very well represented in the pictures and particularly liked the layout of living area on 2nd floor with most bedrooms on 3rd floor. The internet connection was very good, important for adults squeezing in a little work and kids on iPad's. Air conditioning worked well, which all appreciated. While a couple of blocks from the beach it was actually easier and more fun to get there via golf cart than when we have been closer staying on Hilton Head. The home is almost halfway between the restaurants we like on the north end of the island in Anna Maria and the Publix and shopping in mid Holmes Beach. Again just a golf cart away. We also appreciated that we could bring our small dog and that the backyard was fenced. We thought the beach location was perfect as well. Not crowded but enough for people watching and making friends. A 30 minute walk north on the beach and you are at the Sandbar Beach Restaurant, our favorite being on the beach and with a great bar. The food is good too. Really can't think of any negatives as to the property or trip in general. We will be back!

Great spot to experience Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

The house worked out perfect for our group of 10 adults. We were constantly utilizing the large kitchen and pool area to hang out and cook our meals. Short easy walk to the beach and located near some great restaurants. We would stay in Emerald Seas again for sure! Anna had it set up in good order and we appreciated the opportunity to stay in this location.

Great vacation house with amazing amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 45th college reunion for 15 women. The house was perfect for a large group. The open kitchen, dining and living area flowed nicely for entertaining. The pool, patio and outside kitchen were a favorite hang out. The house is clean, bright and fully stocked. The beach was a short walk and there were plenty of beach toys, chairs, etc for everyone. As great as the house and location were, Anna was even better. I have done several VRBO rentals and she was by far the most accommodating and helpful owner to work with.

Great house with an Amazing pool!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Emerald Seas! The house was clean and well layed out. The best part of the house is the pool! All of the kids ages 3-12 loved swimming the day away. It was also a very short walk to the beach! We're hoping to go back again to Anna Maria and stay at this wonderful house!

Travelers' Choice® 2013 Winner Islands

The barrier island of Anna Maria is an absolute slice of laid-back paradise. Golfing and fishing are two of the most popular tourist activities, though an afternoon lounging at Bean Point beach is a must-do, too. The Anna Maria Island Historical Museum is a fun way to soak up some local history when you’re taking a break from soaking up the sun.
