About the property

4 bedrooms 4 baths

Across the street from the turquoise waters and sugar white beaches of Tampa Bay, this beautiful and completely renovated beach home gives you an opportunity to sit back and enjoy an unobstructed view of Tampa Bay. This bay view is available from balconies on both floors from the great room and from the two master bedrooms above. The two master bedrooms even have remote control blinds so you can wake up in the morning and see the waves hitting the beach without leaving your pillow! Then simply head across the street to enjoy beach fun.

If your idea of a vacation is laying around a pool, be sure to check out our photos of the heated pool area. Situated behind the house in a private area, you can swim, get some sun, and lounge. You'll never tire of swimming in the salt water pool. The spacious covered deck behind the house overlooking the swimming pool gives you a great vantage point to watch the kids in the pool or entertain a group outdoors. It also has a TV if a favorite show or sporting event is on. The Anapauo Beachhouse will certainly live up to its name! Pronounced ahn-ap-ow’-o, it is a Greek word meaning to give rest, refresh, recover and collect strength. Kick off your shoes and have a true vacation.

For those of you who want to embrace your inner athlete, there is a pool basketball hoop and a volleyball net that can be set up in the pool. There is also four bicycles and two tandem kayaks and two paddleboards for guests to use to explore the island. Other amenities include two booster seats, Pack 'n Play, gas grill, outdoor bar area, high-speed wireless internet, six flat screen High-Definition TVs, digital cable and one HD DVR box to record favorite shows and watch at your leisure. There are also three BluRay players and a Netflix streaming subscription so entertaining will come as easy as relaxation.

Restaurants, shopping and the Anna Maria pier are all within easy walking distance. And please check out the video tour for additional pictures -- you will love it!

About Josh Sato

Hello, My name is Josh Sato. I am born and raised on Anna Maria Island. I currently live in Holmes Beach. I love fishing, diving, pretty much anything to do with the water.

Why Josh Sato chose Anna Maria

I grew up here and can't imagine living anywhere else

What makes this house unique

Amazing views of the bay - located steps away from the water. Spacious lounge and pool area.

Beautiful views and private beach. Sunrise every day. Lots of good restaurants near by.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great views from almost every room. The City pier is gone but still a wonderful place. Nice pool and lots of room to enjoy time with a big family. We enjoyed the paddle boards in the bay. Our family really enjoyed the house. I would stay here again.

Beautiful property with stunning views

  • 4 of 5

A lovely property with stunning views and great position to visit the pier, beach and Pine Avenue shops. Well equipped but would have liked more drinkwear for both inside and out and a change of sheets for the beds. Pool great and regularly cleaned. Accommodation good and beautiful house decor. Best property we have stayed in.

Some issues with customer service from Sato but they have now apologised for the problem.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed at this property and the third time for my wife to stay at this property. It is absolutely perfect! The views are incredible as the main level (kitchen and living room) and two of the bedrooms have wonderful views of the bay. We have seen dolphins and manatees swimming in the bay each time we have stayed here. The house is located in an ideal spot on Anna Maria Island - a more quiet spot, less car and people traffic - but yet is only a few blocks and easy walk to the incredible stretch of beach on the island. Another beach and the historic Anna Maria pier is just across the street from the property. Numerous restaurants and shops are within walking distance (just blocks away) and Two Scoops ice cream shop is dangerously close to the property :) The property has a great private pool in the backyard as well. I can not say enough good things about this property.... we will try to stay here every time we come to Anna Maria Island. You will not be disappointed! I highly recommend this property!

Beautiful, luxurious Bay front home!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible, roomy, home for our extended family of 10 overlooking the Bay! Today we saw dolphins from large front deck! Exquisitely remodeled by new owners, including new pool (where kids and grands spent many hours) and landscaping in back with ample deck furniture, and privacy with deck overlooking pool. The home is near unique restaurants and businesses. You can ride the free trolley around the island with many stops.

We enjoyed walking the beaches, biking the neighborhoods (2 bikes provided by owners),

walking the 400' pier a block away, and just watching the activities out on the

Bay! We really appreciated the washer/dryer and well-equipped kitchen! Owners very helpful!

"A little bit of Heaven on earth"! How will I get my wife to go back to Iowa! :)
