About Debi Wohlers

We moved from Tampa, FL to Anna Maria Island full-time in 2011.

I was born and raised in Tampa and visited Anna Maria Island many times as a child.

After selling my computer software business in 2007, I bought a 'weekend' place in Holmes Beach in 2008. I immediately fell in love with the island and the friendliness of the locals.

It is a charming small town that I know you too will enjoy.

Debi Wohlers purchased this house in 2013

A perfect beach house on a beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5

The Crab Shack is such a nice place for a lazy vacation on Anna Maria Island.

We stayed for a week and loved how neat and clean everything was. The pool area is perfect and very private with cozy plants and palm trees. The beach was only a few blocks away!

The owner Debi is very nice and was easy to get a hold of for any questions we had.

We can't wait to come back :)

This home was a great home away from home. Remarkably clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation stay. We never felt like we didn't have something that we needed. And never once felt or wished we had gone somewhere else. The pool was clean and refreshing and the walk to the beach was easy and fun. We look forward to spending many family summer vacations together in this home away from home.

Well Appointed & Accessible For Family Fun

  • 4 of 5

We loved The Crab Shack! It's difficult to find a home rental with three bedrooms and two baths without a minimum week stay. This home was spacious for five adults, tastefully decorated and a delightful pool. It provides a storage unit full of beach gear, kitchen ware, linens, and a washer and dryer. Located on the northern end and away from a lot of the hustle & bustle, and very accessible to great restaurants, unique shops, and a few blocks from the biggest pool in the world, Holmes Beach!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay. We are one of the few Owner Managed Properties on the island. We work very hard to maintain the property and provide an excellent vacation experience for our guest. I would love to hear what we could do to improve our rating to 5 stars. Thank you.

Wonderful Stay at the Crab Shack

  • 5 of 5

Perfect get away. House was colorful and comfortable with plenty of room for the five of us. Cooked in most of the time and the kitchen is well equipped. Pool is so refreshing after a day at the beach or shopping. Beach is close by and also enjoyed going to Coquina Beach. Great Sunday market there. Ate lunch at the Rod and Reel pier and the food was very good - grouper fingers and the best fries I have ever had. The owner Debi is great to deal with and always helpful if you need anything. This was our second time staying at the Crab Shack and we would definitely stay again.

Anna Maria Island
Car: recommended

Anna Maria Island is a quaint Barrier Island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico.

Beautiful turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are the main attraction here. It is a place where 'old' Florida charm can still be found, flip flops are a way of life and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph.

High rise condos and fast food restaurants are pleasantly absent from our pristine 'get away from it all' island.

Our accommodations and restaurants offer something for everyone. From quaint cottages by the sea to deluxe suites, from million-dollar villas to rustic cottages.

One visit to Anna Maria Island and you will be calling it, 'My island in the sun'.
