Property description

Newly Renovated!!! "Sea Life Happy" is a vacation rental above all others. Sunny, airy, extra large living and kitchen spaces are just some of the features of this beautiful home in the most coveted area on the north end of Anna Maria. Canal front with 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms that’s just steps to the Bay Beach, and 3 blocks from the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico beaches. Perfect for boating and water activities, "Sea Life Happy" is just around the corner from the Historic Anna Maria Pier, great restaurants, and the Pine Avenue shopping district. You cannot ask for a better spot for all that Anna Maria has to offer!

COASTAL LIVING: Boasting one of the BEST BACKYARDS in Anna Maria, you can sink into the plush outdoor seating, or relax on the dock while listening to the coconut trees sway and the smell of ocean in the air. The huge outdoor cabana hosts a game room, living, dining, and outdoor bar with TV, all overlooking the heated pool and spa, and tranquil waterfront. Need a break from swimming in the Gulf or pool? Feel free to entertain the entire family with cocktails and snacks in either the cabana area oasis or the gorgeous deck upstairs. Ease into island time while fishing from the dock or looking for the manatees and rays often seen swimming in the canal. Boaters are welcome in this location, where there is easy navigation to the Gulf of Mexico!

The GLORIOUS GULF VIEWS off the elevated deck are not to be missed! You can start and end your days lazing over a cup of coffee while watching the fantastic local wildlife. Al Fresco dining is a cinch for the whole family just off of the main level with dining (table for 8) and a comfortable seating area for relaxing, lounging and great conversation.

In addition, "Sea Life Happy" has a beach buggy, beach chairs and towels, umbrella, portable cooler and games for your beach going enjoyment.

The bottom line is there is plenty of room to stretch out, relax, and enjoy “Anna Maria Beach Life”!

SIESTA TIME INSIDE: The Sunny interiors invite you in as soon as you open the door to "Sea Life Happy". The large open concept living and dining space will give everyone a chance to find a spot to reconnect with each other, share stories, laugh, play games and make memories. Tropical colors and bright, cheery furniture and decorations are featured throughout.

The fabulous and spacious gourmet kitchen is outfitted with premium cookware responding to the Inner Foodie in you. All of the chef’s accouterments are available to you to create memorable feasts with your family.

NESTING: At day’s end….There will be no fighting for the sumptuous Master Bedroom suite since there are TWO! Both have large flatscreen TVs and a comfortable relaxation area. The sunny and cheerful queen bedroom also has a flatscreen TV. The 4th bedroom has a twin over a double mattress bunk bed…and the separate den allows for a private retreat to catch up on a good book while also having a full size pull out futon, if you need to squeeze in an extra guest.

We tried to think of everything so that during your visit you can sit back, relax, and take in all that is Anna Maria. Enjoy whiling away your time while you get to know and love the Anna Maria experience. Just pack your bathing suit and let us do the rest!

Car: Recommended

"Sea Life Happy" is ideally located on the desirable northern tip of Anna Maria Island. A slice of old Florida, with seven miles of sugary white sand beaches, voted one of the 'Best Islands in the USA'. It showcases a tropical landscape with crystal clear waters reminiscent of the Caribbean. Anna Maria is a treasure found on Florida's Southwest Gulf Coast conveniently located between Tampa (1 hour) and Sarasota (45 mins) it is also only about 2 hours from Orlando. You'll be surrounded by warm Gulf waters; "Sea Life Happy" is located steps to the Bay beach and a few blocks to the Gulf of Mexico; around the corner you will find the Greenest Main Street in America. Anna Maria is fast becoming a hot spot for gastronomic delights. Feel free to take a walk or catch the free local Trolley to local restaurants or attractions. Some of our favorite restaurants are: Eat Here in Holmes Beach; The Waterfront Restaurant, Sandbar, Rod & Reel Pier, and Poppo's Tacos in Anna Maria. Ginny & Jane E's and Peaches are great places for breakfast and lunch. It's about a 30-45 minute drive to Sarasota, depending on the time of year. Tampa is a little over an hour. St. Petersburg is about 45-50 minutes away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Our story started with our first vacation home, Surf’s Up! It was our little Florida dream come true. After years of searching for the right warm weather spot we discovered Anna Maria Island, a true “Old Florida” town with fantastic beaches, incredibly friendly people, great restaurants and shopping, and the type of ambiance we had long been trying to find. Now with our friends and family visiting often with us, Surf's Up became too small and we were excited to purchase SEa Life Happy that can fit everyone under one roof.

Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria, FL, USA:
Sea Life Happy's location, larger size and stunning finishes made the decision to purchase easy. Located in the coveted North End section of the island, is just a short walk to the beaches, restaurants, shopping, and all the other amenities that the wonderful spot has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is newly renovated!!! We have lovingly renovated the exterior with the goal of making it one of the best backyards to enjoy in Anna Maria. Adding a tropical secluded paradise in the backyard, complete with a large Cabana, plush seating area, outdoor bar and pool area that is fun for entertaining or simply relaxing. Our goal is not just to provide a rental spot for you, but rather a home away from home that you’ll want to come back to year after year. We have found nothing to be better than spending a day relaxing or walking on Anna Maria’s pristine, white beaches and then retreating to our screened in porch area or the pool, soaking in the sun, enjoying the casual company of family and friends, followed by a short stroll to take in one of the gulf’s spectacular, breath-taking Gulf sunsets. Life doesn’t get any better than that!
