Please read our up-to-date reviews to see what others think of Anna Maria and C-view! We are located on the north end of Anna Maria, near Bean Point.

We are one of the few canal houses close to the beach -- the best of both worlds.

Golfers will appreciate the nearby access to four top flight public courses. Florida's weather allows for golfing all year long!

We are a short stroll to Bean Point where Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico converge.

The home was completely renovated and refurbished. From the family rooms you will be able to enjoy the Canal View! It has its own 29 foot dock which is perfect for kayaking or boarding a boat for a day out on the water. The large (30 foot) heated family-size, salt swimming pool is ideal for swimming laps or just splashing in the water in its splash deck.

C-view is less than 200 yards from Anna Maria’s famous white sand beaches. You will appreciate the outdoor shower for freshening up after your day at the beach or your day out boating. (See more details below)

The house is within easy walking distance of the local restaurants (Rod and Reel, Sandbar, Waterfront) and shops, as well as the two local piers. No need for a car!

The house is single-story and has large doors to accommodate wheelchairs. Inside you will enjoy all the contemporary furnishings and audio visual treats. The kitchen is modern and easy to maintain. C-View is a perfect place for a perfect holiday.

About Ann Chappell

Originally from Louisiana now Living in England, I spent my summers on Crescent Beach, Siesta Key. Anna Maria reminds me of Siesta Key when there were only private homes on Crescent Beach before any high rise buildings.

Ann Chappell purchased this house in 2008

Why Ann Chappell chose Anna Maria

The Gulf Coast's white sand beaches are highly-regarded and known worldwide for their beauty. Anna Maria is unique because it is not built-up like many other areas of Florida. It is old Florida, not some new area trying to be old Florida! It is relaxed and friendly. We chose the house because it is on the canal allowing access to various water activities and yet is 200 yards to the beach.

What makes this house unique

If you want a relaxing vacation, you can choose to never leave the house and have a wonderful time swimming, fishing and enjoying the view. You can walk to most restaurants in the area or take the free trolley.

If you want an active vacation, you can jet ski, water ski, sail, parasail, kayak, deep sea fish, bike, golf, swim, horseback ride, tennis, shuffleboard, paddle surf all within 5 miles of the house. You can go further a field for theatre (Sarasota)or theme parks (Busch Gardens in Tampa).

If you have to work while on vacation, the house is fully equipped with a computer, fax/scanner/printer, and high speed wireless broadband. The post office is within walking distance if you need to send items. Free phone service is provided and includes low cost international service as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your pictures don't do it justice. The house was just perfect for our family. The kitchen was stocked with the best of appliances, pots, dishes, etc. even a grill outside. The little ones really enjoyed the shelf in the pool. It made supervising them so much easier, and not having to lug beach towels, sand toys, even beach chairs was a huge help. The beach was beautiful and we rented kayaks and it was great having the canal right in our backyard. Thanks for a wonderful week of sun and fun.

C-View

  • 4 of 5

We rented the property for a week and very much enjoyed our stay. Ann and Erin were very accommodating to our needs and responsive to our requests during the stay. The house is clean, well equipped and in a great location. The pool area is absolutely fantastic! My only ask would be that Erin notifies guests when property management crews are scheduled to work. We had two instances where a gentleman walked right into the pool area using the side entrance and serviced the pool. Not a big deal, but a prior notice would have been much appreciated. Having a dock was great - we rented a boat and the rental company brought it right to our dock.

Owner's Response: We are happy 98% of reviewers give us a Five Star rating. It does allow me to mention two things we ask from all our guests. 1)Call if you have issues WHILE YOU ARE THERE. VRBO properties are each unique. If you need help to operate something, just call. 2)Be courteous. You contacted us and asked for a 45% discount on the rental fee. We negotiated a 7% discount and provided an extra high chair and crib for free (you have twins, I am grandmother to twins.) While you were there, you rented a boat to dock at the house (a unique feature of our property). Boat rentals are not cheap. You had e-mailed me prior to your stay to say you were 'deathly afraid of snakes' and concerned about seeing a snake on the PROPERTY. There is a greater chance of seeing one out on a boat! After you left we refunded your full deposit (in 4 days). You then e-mailed to say you were unable to work the dryer properly while you were there (the cleaners used it the day you left to wash 7 sets of bed linens and over a dozen towels in less than 6 hours). You should have called Erin for instructions. In the e-mail you said the liquid items on the top shelf of the refrigerator were freezing together. No one has mentioned this as an issue. The temperature can be adjusted and the items spaced for better circulation of refrigerated air. A call to Erin would have solved your issue. Also in your e-mail you said the beach umbrella broke during your stay. These items break. WE STATE IN THE BROCHURE to call us when things break so we can replace them WHILE YOU ARE THERE. We have loads of replacement items (part of normal wear and tear). Had you contacted Erin, you would have had a new umbrella for the rest of your stay. The day you left the cleaner's sent the following e-mail: "I'm not sure how every bed (7) could be used when there was suppose to be 4 adults and 4 kids -- 2 in cribs. The house is a mess, too. Definitely OK if these people don't rent again." THIS WAS A FIRST. I felt sorry for my cleaners. As a courtesy to the cleaners, we ask guests to strip the beds they used, put a load of towels in to wash, and place unwanted food items in the refrigerator to be removed by the cleaners. We have 6 hours to prepare the house pristinely for the next guests. As a courtesy, most guests do those 3 things. I am sorry the pool cleaner(twice/week, children use the pool and we care about hygiene) disrupted the enjoyment of your stay. Guests will be reminded of cleaning days. Ann

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent Spring break at C-View and it was just what our family needed! Plenty of room for the Grandparents to join us too! The outdoor space is wonderful for watching the kids play in the pool or having morning coffee. The location made getting to the beach or "town" an easy walk. We rented a boat from "Just4fun" on Ann's recommendation and they were a pleasure to deal with. I didn't want our vacation to end, It was just perfect! Wishing the same week was available next year!

Owner's Response: As new grandparents, we hope to be included in future family vacations! We are pleased you were able to explore all the beauty of Anna Maria. We love renting a boat so we can see homes from the water side and look back on the Island. Don't wait for Spring Break, come back sooner! You were great guests.

This is a special place

  • 5 of 5

This special house is located perfectly away from the hustle and bustle, but at the same time everything is easily accessible. The beautiful beach is just a short stroll, and allowed us to soak up the sun during the day and take in the world class sunsets at night. We rented kayaks and bikes from Beach Bums on Pine avenue and they delivered the equipment to the house - couldn't have been any easier. We were able to take the Kayaks from the backyard canal and row to the bay waters and caught several species of fish. The home was super comfortable - the pool was great - we used the grill for Kabobs, burgers, and chicken georges. The kitchen offered everything. The owner/manager was super organized and made our stay easy. We were there for a 50th Birthday and arranged a special birthday greeting - very classy - We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the classy review. So glad Anna Maria and C-view Florida provided the backdrop for a special week. Beach Bums are fantastic to our guests which we appreciate. Vacations should be hassle free, a time to recharge. We look forward to having you stay with us again soon.

Perfect home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We visited AMI third time. This was the perfect house for our crew (4 adults, 4 young kids) - and it had even room for more. All rooms on ground level, pool just a few steps behind the house, private dock for fishing and water sports. We have rented a beach wagon from ABC rentals and a paddle board and a tandem kayak from beach bums. Everything easily delivered to and picked up right from the house. Ann reacts to all questions nearly in real time and Erin takes wonderfully care of everything we needed (to know) while we were on AMI. Both beaches in walking difference as well as Pine Ave where Popo's Mexican Food and the Donut Experiment makes your life even another little bit better. There is not a single thing we can argue about. And no reason not to come back.

Owner's Response: What a splendid informative review. Thanks for taking time to write such thoughtful comments. It gives a real flavour of Anna Maria -- friendly people and many fun activities. We do hope you will stay with us the next time you visit Anna Maria.

Truly a special Bean Point house

  • 5 of 5

Having spent three Christmas holidays at C-View, I cannot say enough about what a great place it is, with five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a big open space for cooking, eating and socializing. The patio expands the livable space, the pool is wonderful, and the dock is very convenient for a quiet spot on the water away from the house, from which we launched kayaks. The house is beautifully furnished with an excellent selection of high-quality equipment for cooking and relaxing. The beach is a short walk, and we had beach bikes delivered to the house on the day we arrived. Biking from the house is easy and enjoyable. The house is very convenient being all on one level -- easy access for small children and for people whose joints may be problematic for using stairs. It's great to be able to easily walk in and out of the house and onto the patio without going up and down stairs. The owners and manager are very responsive and accommodating, and they leave a lovely gift basket for guests on arrival. All in all, it's been the perfect place for our family and it now feels like home. Sadly, we can't return because the addition of several significant others requires a larger house for our group for next year. This is one of the best rentals on AMI, I'm convinced!

A Wonderful House for a Holiday

  • 5 of 5

C-View has been our family holiday gathering place for the past three years. We are four "seniors" and three "twenty-somethings" who now have significant others. This year we had a 5-yr-old as well. We enjoy cooking big family meals in the well-appointed kitchen. The owner even bought pie-making things for us when we said it would be nice to have! They have always been extremely accommodating. The property manager responds quickly to any requirement. The quality of furnishings and amenities is high. Comfortable beds with good linens. You will love the Tommy Bahama beach chairs! You are minutes from Bean Point Beach, shops on Pine Street, and north end restaurants. We like nighttime bike rides to Two Scoops for ice cream. This year we kayaked from the dock. Unfortunately, we've outgrown the house with our expanding family and need more bedrooms. But we recommend this house whole-heartedly to anyone who would like to spend a relaxing holiday in a quiet residential neighborhood on this lovely island.
