About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

It is always summer on Anna Maria Island! We have one of the most pristine, un-crowded beaches you will ever visit. Enjoy a champagne breakfast, Duffy's burgers for lunch, or cocktails at sunset! In addition, there are many other fabulous things to do here - Busch Gardens, Universal Studios and Disney are all within a two-hour drive. World-class restaurants and shopping in Sarasota & St. Armand’s circle are just a short drive south, down to Longboat Key and Lido Key. If you are outdoorsy, the swimming, boating and fishing are unbeatable year-round!

Osprey Roost has 2 bedrooms - a large master with two beds, and a cozy second bedroom with a queen bed. The house can sleep 6 adults. There is a large living area, with an adjacent full-size dining room. It also has a small breakfast nook, which provides additional seating for dining or a great spot for card-playing.

The master bedroom has both a king-size bed and a queen-size bed. A full-size bath is adjoining with tub and shower. The other bedroom has a queen-size bed. There is a small third bedroom affectionately known as the "hidey-hole" with 3 twin beds - perfect for children.

The kitchen has recently undergone a bit of remodeling with some new cabinets. There is lots and lots of storage and pantry space, and a door that opens directly onto a patio with a gas grill and picnic table.

There are two garages - one of them is primarily for storage of all the beach stuff: chairs, lounges, toys, noodles, umbrellas and a rope hammock.

The yard is nice and shady, with an outdoor shower. However, there is no fence. Osprey Roost is pet-friendly. Dogs are not allowed on the beach or at newly-opened Neal and Perico Preserves, but they can swim at the boat ramp or at the Palma Sola causeway, just a short drive away. Dogs are also welcome at Robinson Preserve, but they must be on leash.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: I’m Denise - wife, stepmother, aunt and grandmother who loves all things Florida, especially our houses on Anna Maria Island. Though I do have a real job, I would much prefer to be a full-time beach bum and spend as much time near or in the water as possible. There is no better place to enjoy this lifestyle than on Anna Maria Island, one of the few remaining barrier islands with little development and lots of old Florida appeal!

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
This house belonged to our dear friends for over 40 years. It remained in their family until recently and various members of the entire family (4 generations) still come on a regular basis. It is another lovable, old-Florida style home, with much retro appeal and a few modern improvements. We enjoy sharing our little piece of paradise with those who appreciate Anna Maria Island for its slow pace, laid-back ambience and quirky charm. Very little has changed in our neighborhood over the last 50 years and best of all, the beach, the Gulf and those unforgettable sunsets are only a short stroll away!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everyone who has stayed at this house over the years appreciates the relaxed, timeless peacefulness of this funky house. It has lots of good vibes!
