PANORAMIC GULF FRONT HOME

Anna Maria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

My home is located at 739 North Shore Drive in Anna Maria. It is on the most beautiful beach in Anna Maria. It is a split plan, the master bedroom and bath on the south end of the house, and the other two bedrooms and one bath on the north end of the house. Every room in the house but one faces the Gulf of Mexico. Two of the 3 bedrooms have a private entrance to the 600 sq. ft. deck. You can see the Gulf the instant you open your eyes in the morning. Two couples renting the house won't have to decide who get the gulf front view. I have a table and chairs on the sand so that you can dine right on the beach. The beach is very private, but yet only a few short miles to activities and shopping. You can walk the shore to one of the most popular restaurants on Anna Maria and eat on their deck barefoot. Also, my beachhouse has been the locale for two TV commercials several years ago. There is ample parking for a boat, RV, or camper with no backing up since there is a circular driveway.

I am a Florida native having been born in Ybor City, and I presently live in Odessa, Florida. I am retired after working over 25 years as a legal secretary, have 4 children and 7 grandchildren. I enjoy 'hanging out' with my grandkids, traveling, dancing, playing mah jongg and bridge, and recently reconnecting with very old friends from high school, even kindergarten.

The Owner purchased this house in 1981

I have been coming to this island since I was a little girl. As the years went by, I saw more and more people discovering this piece of paradise, so my husband and I decided to hurry and buy a lot before it was 'all taken'. Now my children and grandchildren and their children will be able to enjoy it. There are no high-rise condos here. I don't have a pool, but that only makes kids appreciate nature by playing on the beach, building sandcastles, feeding sea gulls, chasing ghost crabs, going night crabbing, snorkeling, fishing off-shore, etc., instead of playing in a pool.

One of the most unique benefits of being here is that you feel you're right on the shore although you're sitting on the deck. The sunsets are incredible, and the white egrets love to 'drop in' for a treat. Even the storms out in the gulf are beautiful to see. And i love to hear the surf. my house isn't luxurious but has a very 'beachy' charm, so i've been told. i have had tenants coming for over 20 years, a few of whom i've never met face to face. What I believe to be a plus about my home is that 2 of the 3 bedrooms have beach views and access to the deck. you You wake up to a beautiful view.

2015 will be our third year at AMI, a place we have found to be perfect for us -- unbelievable beach, great restaurants, no high rises, quiet, under advertised and friendly. Shirley's Place, for us, is the perfect match for this environment. It's a "beach cottage ", and a good one! Every room in the house except one bedroom and bath opens onto the gulfside deck, which itself adds 30-40% to the living area, and a very important piece. Shirley's Place is everything we need for beachfront living. If you can find a better place, you best get it.

PERFECT PLACE TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Shirley's beach house the first week of October 2012. Her house is very comfortable and is located on the best part of the beach. There were 4 of us (2 couples) and the house was big enough that we each had our space. It was so nice to sit on the deck in the morning with coffee and in the evening with a glass of wine and listen to the waves. We enjoyed several great restaurants on Anna Maria Island. There are also several unique, cute shops on the island. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.

If you want a perfect place to get together with family and friends, this is it! If you're looking for luxury, Shirley's place is not for you. Brings back memories of being "at the shore". The pictures accurately show the house and view. It's private, but within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Kids will love Shirley's beach house (there's even a toy box of shovels and other goodies). Enjoy your stay.

PERFECT !!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent an amazing week at this wonderful home. Because of the the way the house was built, we felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves. The views were amazing, even lying in bed you could see the water. The house was comfortable and looked even better than the pictures. I fell in love with the wonderful orange chairs in the living-room where I could sit and look out to the water. Shirley was very helpful and even called upon our arrival to ask if everything was OK. My family has already asked me if we can go back there again next year!! I sure hope we can!!!!!

CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK NEXT YEAR!!!

Can't Wait To Come Back Next Year!!!
  • 5 of 5
This stay was our 4th time coming back to Anna Maria, and the first time staying at Shirley's Way. I truly think that this is the best place to stay on the island, as I have toured around the island to look for other rentals. Nothing beats the breathtaking sunsets, the complete view up and down the beach, and the classic style of her inviting cottage. Favorite features were: charcoal grill (go to Starfish in Cortez for fresh catches of the day to grill), fire pit, dining table on the deck, and the morning view from our bedroom as we woke up to see the beautiful Gulf. One vacation tip in Anna Maria, rent a stand-up paddle board to head out and watch all of the fish, manatees, and dolphins swim right by you as the clear water allows you to see everything. Last thing to do at Shirleys..........relax. See you next year!
