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

We loved this property. We rented both units for our extended family and were very pleased. Both units are extremely clean, updated and will have everything you will need for a wonderful vacation or short visit. We have travelled extensively and would highly recommend these units. It is a very short walk to the beach and is a wonderful location. The pool(s) out back were very relaxing, well maintained and had an alarm on the door, if you have small children. You will not be disappointed in renting these units.
Thank you for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will stay with us again at a future date.
We spent a week here, what a great place, minutes from the beach and within a very short walk to bars and restaurants.
The house is beautifully kept and appointed with a great pool area, very tranquil.
We have nothing but great memories of AMI and would definitely visit again
Thank you Debi and Lori

Great location, amazing pool and clean, well laid out inside
Our stay at Anna Maria was wonderful and this rental was the icing on the cake. Everything has been updated, it was clean and having a full size washer and dryer just completed the stay. Oh..did I forget to mention the beautiful pool and private backyard? It rained quite a bit, but we never felt cooped up in the house. The owner is amazing. I left my bathroom supplies hanging on the hook in the bathroom and Debi mailed it to me immediately. How good is that customer service? We will definitely use this rental again. P.S. rent bikes...you can get everywhere on them.
Thank you for review! I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon.
Pristine beach cottage in ideal vacation spot
Loved AM Island and this cottage was the perfect way to fully enjoy it! Clean and modern with the super luxury of a private pool! Holmes Beach area is perfectly situated to enjoy great restaurants and exceptional entertainment options all by foot or bike. Would repeat visit or recommend to even the most discerning friends and family!
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'.
