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.

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!

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The Dragonfly is perfect and truly every detail has been considered when designing the home. We have two little ones that came with our group of 8 adults (they are 2 and 3). The pool has a shallow edge along one side that is perfect for them. The wrap around deck is perfect. We could let the kids run around outside and knew they were safe. The gates to the pool all lock so they weren’t able to get in the pool area without an adult. The location if the house is perfect. They layout of the space is a perfect use of space. The jack and Jill bathrooms were perfect for our family. Every detail is perfect-I can’t even explain. They have everything you could want or need for inside and outside. Helmets, bikes, games, beach toys, beach chairs, beach/pool towels, all kinds of baby gear from here guchairs to bumpers to a crib. Children’s life vests. We have been to the island a few times and this was our favorite place and we’ve looked at MANY. None meet all of our requirements except the dragonfly. It feels like home. The location to the beach is perfect. The north end of the island is perfect. Thank you for a fantastic vacation!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Kelly for taking time to write such a detailed and helpful review. We've really tried to think of details that make traveling, especially with young children, more convenient. It's especially rewarding for us when we hear from our guests that they enjoy time at Dragonfly as much as we do, and that our efforts to create an enjoyable environment are making a difference. We hope to see your family and you again next year!

The pictures don’t do this home justice!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely beautiful! I thought the pictures were beautiful, but the house is even more gorgeous in person. I would definitely recommend others to stay here if they’re looking for a relaxing time. We did not rent cars, which I think would be the only do over because of the three kids, 2 years and younger. BUT the island offers free transportation (tips only) that would pick you up from the house, take you wherever you needed to go and then pick you up and bring you home. There was a great little restaurant on the pier a couple blocks from the house that had terrific food and was very inexpensive.

On top of everything else, the owners were extremely accommodating. When we asked about child items they had available, they actually went out and purchased baby gates and a couple other things to ensure we had what we needed. They also provided information to rent any additional items we may need for the kids. The house itself was furnished and equipped with high end furniture and kitchenware. If you’re going to the beach they have the essentials there for you, and if you just want to hang out at the house, there are plenty of things to do for both the adults and kids. The owners really went above and beyond to make sure their guests have everything they need for an enjoyable and memorable stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you Shannon for all of your kind words! We're so glad you enjoyed your time at Dragonfly, and appreciate the helpful suggestions you offered regarding accessories that make traveling easier for parents with young children. By offering some of the basics (crib, pack-n-play, etc) we hope to provide everyone a stress-free and convenient vacation experience. We hope you'll bring your family back again next year, and promise to go out of our way to make your second Dragonfly experience even better than the first!

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!
