About the property

Live large in luxury! This immaculate home was designed from the ground up to inspire the ultimate family vacation. There are amazing decorator finishes and hardwood floors throughout along with vaulted ceilings in almost every room which further accentuates the light and airy-ness of the coastal themed architecture. The open concept great room has a perfect view of the patio and pool just beyond its wall of glass sliders. The living area offers very comfortable furnishings and a large flat screen TV. The kitchen is outfitted with gorgeous granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and white raised panel cabinetry all perfectly contrasted by the colorful glass mosaic tile backsplash. The rustic dining table offers a unique combination of bench and seats for the whole family to enjoy your home prepared meals. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV and a subtle style all to its own. The spacious and tropically landscaped back yard contains a cornucopia of outdoor seating for your sun worshiping or poolside dining pleasure. The soothing sounds of the rock-scaped waterfall will undoubtably add to the overall peaceful and tranquil ambience the Island inherently exudes. Located just two blocks to the Gulf's brilliant beach and close the free Island Trolley makes this a prime location from which to explore all that Anna Maria Island has to offer. With the sleeper sofa in the living room this deluxe beach house sleeps up to 10!

This house was exactly as the pictures showed. The back yard with the pool was like a resort. Very private. I loved how the house was decorated. It was very clean upon our arrival. Would definitely recommend My Big Fat Beach House.

Loved the house!! It had everything we needed, my mom, sisters and nieces and I get together every year, this being our 30th year!! We also celebrated my moms 83rd birthday. The house was perfect, comfortable and roomy, everyone loved it. We also spent many hours in the pool playing cards (recommend bringing waterproof cards). The backyard is a perfect oasis. Planning on coming back next year.

It has everything!

  • 5 of 5

My Big Fat Beach House is wonderful! It is clean, beautifully furnished and has everything you need for a relaxing, easy vacation. We prefer to grill or cook after a day at the beach, so easy in such a well stocked kitchen. The private pool area is great and where we spend our mornings and evenings. It was our second year at this property, after renting many beach houses on different beaches we give this the highest rating. Love Anna Marie Island, we'll be returning as soon as we can!!

this is truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Beach-side Paradise is perfect place for relaxing by the pool, beach access, walk or drive to breakfast and dinner. This home was full stocked to make dinner or order in. Beautiful bedding and enough towels for the beach, pool and bathroom. Lots of privacy, fully fenced and 2 outdoor showers. Clean, Clean, Clean!
