About Mark W English
We built this home back in 1987 and have used it as a vacation rental property for almost the entire time we have owned it. We take a lot of pride in makingW sure our guests feel at home the minute they arrive.
Mark W English purchased this House in 1987
Why Mark W English chose Anna Maria
Along with my parents we purchased the lot and built our vacation home in 1987. My mother was born in Lakeland and used to visit Anna Maria as a child. When we had a day or two off from work Anna Maria is where I headed. My folks were a the house often. They both loved fishing, mostly at the Rod & Reel Pier. Back then you could fish on the pier for .25 cents. Now I believe it is $5.00. The City Pier is free but both mom and dad didn't like the long walk down the pier at the City Pier. The Rod & Reel pier has a uch shorter pier. They both also ate breakfast at the pier. Both of my parents have passed away, but their memory lives on everywhere I look in Anna Maria. Anna Maria for me is a magical place, it was back in 1987 and still is today. It is like you enter a bubble when you arrive at the house. No matter what is going on in the world or in your life, all that goes away and that is very relaxing. The CIty has changed over the years but that magical feeling has not.
What makes this House unique
Our home is located in the quite northern end of Anna Maria where it is impossible not to just relax and enjoy a lifestyle almost impossible to find anywhere else. There are no crowds or long lines to stand in and you don't have to reach for your wallet every 20 minutes. Its simply family, sun, surf, and, total relaxation. You can just sit by the pool, sit on the porches, take a nap in the hammock, go to the beach, or take a bike ride. The beach access is just across the street. The magic is palpable. We provide 6 bikes for our guests, 2 adult women's and 2 adult men's along with 2 kids bikes. If you had to rent the bikes for a week it would cost around $200 for week. We provide 2 ride on top kayaks for our guests. If you had to rent 2 kayaks it would cost around $300.00 for the 2. We also provide a beach cart for our guest which would cost about $30.00 a week if your had to rent one.

Perfect beach get away
This was our first time in Anna Maria so we were not sure when booking. We are so grateful that we found this home! I literally have NO complaints! The experience begins when you walk in to the house- Lights on, music, wine, fresh flowers everywhere. Nothing is overlooked in this home and Mark is amazing at responding when you have a question. He truly leaves no detail overlooked. We were there for Thanksgiving and kitchen was extremely well stocked.
We have been to many vrbo’s and I have to say, this is by far the nicest that we have experienced! If you want an amazing beach vacation, Book now- you will not regret it. Show up with your bathing suit and flip flops- everything else is already there waiting for you! Can’t wait to return!
Wonderful as always!!
We had a great 4 day visit to the island and enjoyed our stay!!
Beautiful Property - Unmatched Hospitality!
I can not say enough about our fabulous stay at this beautiful property! My 3 sisters and I rented this remarkable beach house for a sisters retirement/birthday celebration trip. We arrived to a house, decorate in such wonderful beachy decor, full of fresh flowers, a chocolate celebration cake, and even a bottle of wine! The trail to the beach is less that 15 steps from the property. With balconies on 2 levels we could watch the sunset from our balcony on evenings we did not want to walk down to the beach. The pool is private, heated, a wonderful place to hang out for the evening after a day at the beach... but the best part of all was the unmatched hospitality and attention to our comfort provided by Mark, the owner!! This house comes equipped with absolutely anything and everything you could need - we even found birthday candles in a drawer to put on the cake! and Mark was so gracious about answering my many texts before hand about what the house was equipped with so we could avoid packing items that were already there - we even texted him from the grocery store to see what type of coffee maker was there so we would know what kind of coffee to purchase and he answered within minutes! However we never saw him while we were there - we where given complete privacy - but knew he was just a text away if we had any question or needed anything. Everyone of us intends to return to Anna Maria and rent this house again with our families - the owner, Mark, the house, the location, the pool, the furniture and unmatched hospitality are the very BEST Anna Maria has to offer!!!
Amazing location, very welcoming house.
First impression was amazing, walked in the front door to cookies, wines, shells, and a note from the owner. The location is perfect and the amenities with the house can't be beat. We will definitely be staying here next time we come down. I cannot recommend this house enough!
The place was perfect. Great location and literally everything we needed for a perfect girls weekend
Highly recommend. The place was perfect.
Perfect beach home
We so enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. It was beautifully furnished and very clean. Mark was very attentive, responding back quickly when I messaged him. He had the lights on, fresh flowers and wine waiting for us. Everything we could have possibly needed was provided, both inside and outside for the pool and beach. The kitchen was very well supplied with plenty of dishes and cookware. We loved the soft towels and robes, and the beds were all very comfortable.
Our grandsons loved the pool. We spend hours out there daily, and enjoyed grilling. Beach access is right across the street, with ocean and beach views from the top balcony. We enjoyed sunrise walks along the beach and watching the pelicans and seagulls come over from the mainland. The bikes are a great way to get around the island.
We’ve been to AMI several times, and a trip wouldn’t be complete without key lime pie doughnuts from Doughnut Experiment, pizza from Vinny’s Italian Kitchen, and ice cream from Two Scoops. The island also has several excellent seafood restaurants, including the Beach Bistro and the Waterfront Restaurant.
