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

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.

Perfect Family Getaway...

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (4 adults, 2 kids under 3) just returned from a week at Dragonfly and we couldn't be happier with our stay. The house itself is stunning. It is beautifully decorated but incredibly comfortable at the same time. The kitchen is gorgeous and highly efficient, we loved cooking our meals at the house. All of the bedrooms are inviting and extremely comfortable with high quality linens and mattresses, the bathrooms are the same. The first level with pool, spa, ping pong and all other sorts of games and activities is wonderful, there's so much to do right there at the house. One of the biggest bonuses for me was the fact that the only thing I had to pack for my kids was their clothes. There is everything for kids; high chairs, pack and play, toddler crib, beach toys, Puddle Jumpers life jackets, I mean everything...all the way down to the most beautifully cozy pack and play sheets and blanket for my daughter. The beach, (access is right across the street from the house) is one of the biggest, most beautiful, and least crowded I've ever seen. And lastly, working with the owner, Jeffrie, was a pure pleasure. She's so responsive and committed to making your stay as comfortable as possible. Our family will absolutely be back to Dragonfly in the future - we can't wait!

Beautiful home, perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six (4 kids 8 and under) just spent the most lovely week at Dragonfly. We loved every moment at this immaculate home. Jeffrie has put so much thought into the details in this home. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. The beds are comfortable and warm. My kiddos loved sleeping in the bunk beds and enjoyed the book lights next to each bed! We had an amazing time playing ping pong, and bocce ball as well as the games they had at the house (scrabble etc). Although the weather was too cold to go swimming during our stay, the pool was pristine. Jeffrie is terrific to work with. We have stayed at many VBRO houses in the past, and have never experienced the quality and hospitality that Dragonfly provided. From the moment we walked in we felt at home and most importantly focused on our vacation with our young family. Thank you so much Jeffrie for sharing your beautiful piece of AMI with our family!

Amazing home in a prime location with tons of amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Dragonfly around the Christmas holiday. Our group included an extended family with grandma, adult kids and college-aged grandkids. The house had plenty of room for everyone to socialize and sleep. We didn't venture out too far from the house as the weather was perfect and everyone was happy around the pool and patio. Every area of the house was nicely decorated, yet comfortable.

The house had everything we needed. Every room was fully equipped, especially the kitchen. We made many meals in the house and it was nice to have plenty of dishes, pans, utensils and serving items. It was great to have all of the beach chairs, wagons, toys and towels to enjoy the beach and the pool.

We appreciated the quiet location away from the main business area of the island, but within quick walking distance of the beach and at least 1 restaurant. It was very convenient to get to the shopping area and other restaurants.

We look forward to our next stay at the Dragonfly!

Beautiful Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have been happier with everything at the Dragonfly. You really feel pampered in this house — beautiful linens, comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, and an excellent yard and pool. The house includes everything you need for the beach, as well as games to play at the house. And with the beach just across the street, you really have everything you need for a superb vacation. The owners of the dragonfly have thought of everything. I couldn’t come up with a criticism.

Perfection in every detail

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Dragonfly for our son's destination wedding in the island and could not have had a more perfect home. The house is luxurious and perfectly decorated and equipped to the finest detail. We hosted the wedding party for the rehearsal dinner and made great use of the outdoor spaces, games, and champagne glasses for toasting. This home is so lovely, the owner was welcoming, We didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back!

This is the perfect beach property. Elegant and beachy at the same time.

The home is large and spacious, well appointed. The beds so comfortable and the

house is full of games and activities. We loved the bikes and the hot tub and pool.

The living room is so conducive to rest and conversation. The expansive porches are lovely and there is a place for everyone to spread out and read, or be together and party.

The beach is a short walk and one of the most beautiful beaches ever.

We can't wait to go back!
