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, a volleyball net can be set up in the pool. There is a ping pong table available on the patio under the deck, two bicycles and two tandem kayaks for guests to use to explore the island. Guests staying at this property can also utilize the Anna Maria Island Community center at no extra cost. Other amenities include two booster seats, Pack 'n Play, gas grill, outdoor bar area, high-speed wireless internet, seven 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!

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!
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! :)
