About the property


HURRICANCE IRMA UPDATE: The recent storm spared Anna Maria the worst of expected conditions, and our lovely home came through with only minimal damage. Thanks to the amazing efforts of Florida Power and Light, the power has now been restored. Once some minor repairs are completed, Dragonfly will again be ready to receive guests. More information will be posted soon.

Dragonfly is a newly-renovated, private retreat located just across the street from the sugary white sands of famous Bean Point Beach in Anna Maria, Florida. Glimpse sparkling turquoise waters from upper floor bedrooms, frolic in the pool with spa and sundeck, or create culinary delights in the gourmet kitchen with dual-zone wine cooler and Thermador gas range. Wide open decks and generously sized rooms enhance guest comfort and offer plenty of space for relaxing moments or celebratory events.

PLEASE NOTE: This property is offered exclusively through VRBO/Home Away and its affiliated entities. Fraudulent bookings through any other service or website are invalid and subject to immediate cancellation without return of deposit.

About Jeffrie van Loveren

My husband and I have always held a special appreciation of the warmth, casual vibe, and uncrowded beaches of Anna Maria Island. As avid world tourists, our journeys have helped us identify the special touches and amenities we enjoy most when we travel. Now we look forward to sharing some of the features we've found in resorts across the world as we welcome guests to our new Anna Maria beach home, Dragonfly.

Jeffrie van Loveren purchased this house in 2016

Why Jeffrie van Loveren chose Anna Maria Island

This home was built in an extraordinary location: across North Shore Drive from one of the most famous beaches in Florida - Bean Point. Rooms are large and comfortable, and the property offers privacy as well as plenty of room to play. Extensive renovations have created a delightful environment to experience all of the best aspects of the Florida beach lifestyle.

What makes this house unique

A coveted location on North Shore Drive across from Bean Point is the key attraction of this property. A new swimming pool with sundeck and spa, a Thermador gourmet kitchen, and an oversized deck and covered patio are additional assets that make Dragonfly an exceptional venue for family gatherings, weddings, and the creation of priceless memories.

Stayed at The Dragonfly for a girls getaway. Everything about the property was perfect. The owners have paid attention to every detail. The pictures do not do the property justice. Can’t wait to return!

Fun and Beautiful Home for family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was spectacular! Not a detail was missed for making this a fun and enjoyable vacation getaway. Full of games, outside activities, open floor layout for large groups, beatiful pool, and the list goes on. Location was perfectly next to beach. The owners were also very accommodating and helpful. Even through stressful times of a post hurricane Irma weekend, we were able to work out our vacation perfectly with the help of the owners. Would definitely recommend!

AMAZING property!! Spacious, modern, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Dragonfly exceeded our expectations in every way! The house was immaculate and was very well maintained. The WOW factor was everywhere from the gourmet kitchen with high end appliances to the many amenities found in every room and throughout the house and the property. We ate in every night because we didn't want to leave the property and that included a dinner prepared by a private chef and then the fishing catch that my family members caught and then prepared after a morning of shallow water and deep sea fishing. The ocean was a 6 minute walk even with us pulling a beach wagon loaded with sand toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc. The swimming pool was perfect to relax in and around while others played ping pong and bocce. I will definitely recommend this to everyone I know who wants a first class vacation experience. My entire family was impressed and so was my wife and I. If I could rate it higher than a five star plus I certainly would!!!!!

AMAZING vacation home for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 10, including a 5 year old, 3 teenagers, and grandparents, had a wonderful stay at Dragonfly. Our flight got delayed several times on the way so we arrived later than we had hoped, but all our travel stresses melted away as soon as we stepped foot inside this beautiful home. The pictures online were beautiful but it was even more gorgeous in person. There was something for everyone to enjoy, whether it was the immaculate pool, ping pong table, bicycles, corn hole, bocce court, outdoor bar, and the close access to the beach at bean point across the street. We made so many great memories at this luxurious home on beautiful Anna Maria Island. Thank you Jeffrie for ensuring a comfortable, beautiful home as our home away from home!
