About the Property

Duplex, 2 bedrooms/2baths (sleeps 4-6) with 2 extra twin aero beds

This beautifully maintained island property, which is just 100 steps from the beach and beach access, has been furnished with a decorator's touch. Lush landscaping sets this house apart and the inviting beach decor will lower your stress level and ease you into vacation mode. This spacious 1700 square foot unit has plenty of room for everyone to find their own quiet place, but also larger areas to gather together and play games, watch TV or cook together. The property also has an air/conditioned and heated screened lanai as well as large decks on the front and back. The back deck also has table and chairs with an umbrella and it overlooks the pool.

In the garage you'll find the laundry area and you'll also find beach carts, beach umbrellas and chairs and there are usually lots of beach and pool toys that guests have left behind for your enjoyment as well. The white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico are just a few steps away so grab the beach cart, chairs, umbrellas, beach towels and pop-up shade canopy and start your vacation!

After a day on the beach and in the warm Gulf water you can return to the tranquil setting of the backyard and sip a cool drink while floating in the heated pool or take a nap while listening to your favorite music.

Cook a gourmet meal in the fully appointed kitchen with your family/friends gathered around the breakfast bar, or head out to the rear deck for a bar-b-que. Not in the mood to cook? Walk or drive to one of the many great restaurants on the island or hop on the free island trolley (it stops right across the street) and venture into town for shopping or a visit to the City Pier. But be sure not to miss the stunning sunsets. You can watch the nightly sunset pilgrimage while relaxing in the lanai as the curtains ripple in the evening breeze. It's perfection!

To get a better view, just scroll down this page and right after the rates you'll see the link for our VIRTUAL TOUR. You'll also see a link to the downstairs unit (Listing #87071 on VRBO) which has two bedrooms, 2 baths as well, but is a little bit smaller.......perfect if you'd like to bring the in-laws or extended family along to share this island paradise with you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We're Marilyn and Jim Misiorowski and we've lived in So. California for the past 30 years. We first started coming to Anna Maria Island after James' parents moved from Chicago to the Perico Bay Club in nearby Bradenton in the 1980's. We immediately loved the small town feel of the island and in 2005 we bought this home in anticipation of retiring here. In the meantime, we completely remodeled it, added a pool, landscaping, changed the entry to the upper floor and redecorated with new furnishings with an 'island decor'. We really love coming to the island whenever we have time and someday plan to be there at least 6 months a year.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You'll have everything you need at our little slice of paradise. The beach is right across the street and you don't even have to drive if you don't want to because the island trolley stops just across from our house. The island restaurants are great and plentiful, and one of our favorites is just a block away. You'll also love the friendliness of the locals and the fact that there are no high rises and very few franchise type businesses on the island. Our property's proximity to the beach is definitely what sold us on it. Being a minute walk to the beach makes it so easy to run home if nature calls! One of our favorite places is the lanai. It's a great place to enjoy the scenery, read a book, play a game or just take a nap! The back deck is also fantastic and you'll love to sit there while barbecuing and listen to the palms swaying in the breeze. It's so special. There is so much room, inside and out, everyone can find their special place to be.
