From what our repeat vacationers tell us, Camp Tarpon on Anna Maria Island is the perfect fun family vacation spot! Experience some of the best beaches and fishing on the West Coast of Florida right from your back door. This is a boating and fisherman’s dream to have quick, easy and bridge-free access to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. To make this dream even better, you’ll pass right by Galati’s on your way out to the Gulf where you can gas up your boat and pick up some supplies. Relax as you enjoy fishing off the dock or exploring the Islands’ sea-life filled waterways on kayak or paddle board. Rent a boat from the local marina or hire your own guide to take your family fishing or out to Egmont Key.
If you enjoy beach life, we are just steps away. Layout in the sun, take a walk, look for seashells or run on the 7 mile long white sandy beaches. Located on the prestigious north end of the island, Camp Tarpon is ideally situated for a leisurely walk or bike ride to the ocean, fishing piers, numerous restaurants, the community center, exploring AMI and shopping at the quaint boutiques. The City of Anna Maria has worked tirelessly to keep the tranquil north end of the island the quietest, least crowded beach available. This home is just steps away from an evening stroll to the beach to watch the spectacular sunsets every night over Tampa Bay or the Gulf of Mexico.
Feel free to skip the beach and relax in your private, peaceful resort style backyard. With a brand new tropical heated pool, lounge furniture, fun tiki hut, hammock and fabulous views, the family can enjoy relaxing together. Camp Tarpon is an elevated home, which offers magnificent views from multiple balconies. Many feel like they are in a tree house with the expansive open view of the water, beautiful landscaping, swaying palm trees, tropical breezes, fish jumping and the birds flying over.
This unique 3-bedroom home, which sleeps 8, offers spacious rooms and gorgeous views. Each room has flat screen TV’s, comfortable beds with nice linens and its own private balcony. The master bedroom has a separate shower, double vanity and a jetted tub for your spa like experience. You will sleep like a baby on the temperpedic style California king mattress. With a fully stocked kitchen and stainless appliances, you’ll love to cook while looking out over the water. This open concept living area is ideal for entertaining. Because of the large wall of sliding glass patio doors, which gives you a 180-degree view of the water, the entire house is bright and airy.
There are many extras with this home including a large laundry room with brand new high efficiency washer and dryer units, high speed internet, and 2 a/c units, one for each floor. If you feel like experiencing our pristine, white sandy beaches, we provide beach chairs and a beach cart. Don’t worry about packing beach towel because we’ve got them. Just bring your family and create wonderful, fun memories here at Camp Tarpon and Anna Maria Island.
This property is professionally managed by Anna Maria Island Accommodations, located on the sunny and beautiful Anna Maria Island.
we went over Christmas this year, and had not only perfect weather, but a comfortable stay
Great quiet location, and we could bike or walk everywhere, no need for car
The beds are excellent as is the living area. A few problems, which ought to be addressed
the landscaping was not kept up- lots of overgrown bushes,and dead branches, and endless pieces of black matting peering out from under poorly scattered shells. Basically unkempt.
I might suggest a tall fence on the side where the neighboring pool is ( blue house) the pools are EXTREMELY close and there was a loud family there that insisted on a boom box and it kind of ruined any quiet pool time.
The main TV in living room is only one with a box so only one with good channels, and the large upstairs bedroom has no door, so don't count on privacy up there
The agency responded to many of our issues in a fast manner and we might consider returning if place is spruced up outside and something has been done about neighboring pool noise
We had a wonderful week at Camp Tarpon with our five family members. The location offers an amazing view to the waterfront even from the large verandas upstairs and the higher floors. The whole property inside and outside was very clean, modern equipped and well maintained. Service for check-in and check-out was very friendly. From Camp Tarpon you reach easily Pine Avenue, the beach or the Pier or several restaurants like the Sand Bar or the Waterfront restaurant which was our favorite with delicous dishes!! It was our first time an Anna Maria Island and we loved the relexaxed island rythm and the sunny spirit of the island people so much that we will come back for sure :-))
You want to talk about about being a Beach Bum for a week.... This place is amazing. Best of all worlds of Beach living, Paddle Boarding and Fishing... We absolutely loved our stay here on Tarpon. Great one way, dead end street for our kids to ride their bikes safe PLUS our family rode our bikes together to Rod and Reel Pier for breakfast or City Pier for lunch everyday. Roomy, awesome pool...even had an umbrella in pool and tiki picnic bench for the kids to eat lunch around. VERY Cool. The locals were so nice and we could not have felt more welcomed by the residents. Walking distance to the Beach, boat dock for our friends to come fish and dock their boat... even has a boat lift! Who could ask for more? Extremely impressed. Manatees swimming by and Dolphins! Great experience for the kido's. Awesome time and will definitely come back to this Tarpon Rental. Great location for everything... They have a General Store on Pine Street, plus all the beach local shopping. We were never bored and did not want to leave. Awesome vacation. Wish we lived there! Lucky people...
Great location walking distance to Pier, Trolley, Restaurants, Shops, and the revitalized Pine Ave district!
