3/2 with Pool & Close to the beach!

Your Own Oasis

Picture yourself sitting beside this peaceful lagoon pool, a refreshing beverage in hand, in the company of a few good friends. THAT’s how you should spend your vacation!

The added bonus is that this is a new, customized and luxuriously furnished home to complement an island getaway just blocks from the beach. It’s got that West Indies feel that makes you want to kick back and relax as everything you need is here: tasteful decorations, hand scraped wood flooring, 11 foot ceiling, Samsung kitchen appliance featuring the latest gas range, FULL house water filtration system and more – but if you need to touch base with the real world, there’s flat screen TVs, internet and US-wide phone access.

This home is located in a tranquil location yet close to shops and restaurants and 1 block to the free Trolley!

Our Own Oasis!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to the property which we find relaxing and fun. The open plan living format works well and the bedrooms offer all we need. We enjoy the pool and sheltered garden with bbq. The chairs etc to take to the beach are also a great addition. Great laundry facilities make life very easy too!

It’s a 5/6 minutes stroll to the beach and a 12/15 minute walk to nearest restaurants and bars. The island is beautiful and everyone is there to relax so unwinding is easy. Sunsets draw us back to the beach on many evenings.

We have got to know Ellie Suzanne and Bob at Gulf Island Vacation Rentals and really appreciate their courtesy and care when dealing with the inevitable small issues that arise over 3/4 weeks.

Anna Maria won our hearts!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Anna Maria Island, and it did not disappoint! The house was wonderful and everything was just like the pictures show! Our Grandchildren loved the lagoon pool area and used it every day! It was great to use after a day at the beach in the evening when they wanted to swim! It was just a short walk to the beach which was also lovely! I possibly would rent a golf cart next time for the littles to use going to the beach and to resturaunts, but everything was within a short walk or drive. We would definitely return! Thank you Anna Maria.....until next time!

Owner's Response: Colette and Family, We aim to please and so glad that you were happy with Your Own Oasis and Anna Maria Island. Golf carts are a fun way to get around the island and hopefully you also took advantage of the free trolley that goes from one end of the island to the other. There is also another option called Island Beach Monkeys. They have several vehicles from Golf carts to a small bus and they work for tips only!! Please do come back and visit us soon!

Anna Maria Island is located on the Central West Coast of Florida nestled between the tropical blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the West and Tampa Bay to the North. Once a best –kept secret among local Floridians, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'…

The island consists of 3 cities, Bradenton Beach being the southernmost, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria City on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique and charming shops and restaurants.

Anna Maria Island has miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions. Located close to all the major attractions, yet far from the maddening crowds make the Gulf Island Beaches the ideal vacation spot.

Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset all in a day…

You need never leave the island to find fun and relaxation. Our island is only 7 miles long and no more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of waves and visions of the sunset in every location. Enjoy a day at the beach and watch the kids play in the sand. Walk along pristine beaches and dine in award-winning restaurants, Enjoy fresh grouper sandwiches on a pier and sipping martinis while enjoying live music. Go shopping in our specialty shops and boutiques all along the island. We even have a Free Trolley to take you where you want to go. The friendly environment and endless activities will keep you coming back for more. Hop aboard and experience island paradise!
