If you are looking for a relaxing vacation walking distance to both the Gulf beaches and Tampa Bay, you have found the place.
Anna Maria Island is a small barrier island located approximately one hour South of Tampa. The Island consists of 7 miles of beautiful untouched white sand beaches. In Anna Maria, you will not find high rises or big resorts. It is a quaint island that is unspoiled, tranquil, and very relaxing. The width of the island is only 4 blocks where we are located - so you can easily walk to water on either side. Our location is also convenient to the charming Bayview Plaza. One block away, you can shop, eat at several restaurants, have ice cream, coffee etc. The Anna Maria Pier is also located one block away. Where you can fish, or enjoy dinner and live music.
Our home was built in 1907 and is one of the original homes on the island. In 1947 Arthur and Leone Shumard purchased the home as their retirement home. It has been in the family ever since. In 2003 the home was in need of renovation, and was completely renovated from top to bottom by the current owners. We take pride in our island vacation home, and make cleaning and maintenance our top priority.
