Overview

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.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Anna Maria

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great house and vacation

  • 4 of 5
Had a wonderful time at Shirley's Way. Weather was fabulous and views were awesome. Had a fire at the beach fire pit one evening under the stars. Home was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed in the kitchen. Sat on the deck for hours - amazing sunsets. Beautiful walks on the beach. Location was fabulous - very quiet and away from busy areas. Great local nearby restaurants. Hope to come back again.

Great girls getaway!

Just finished a wonderful birthday celebration at Shirley's Way! From the moment you set eyes on the most incredible, breath taking view, it feels like paradises. From the long walks on the beach, the thrill of watching manatee's and dolphins swimming by as you play in the water. To the magnificent sunsets from the deck. Shirleys Way has it all. Comfy cozy clean and that quaint island feel! My paradise.

Another great week at AMI.
Shirley's Way has been "ours" for 15 plus years. Always in great shape, clean and ready to go. Not a Five Star hotel, but a Six star Beach House.
Always fun and always accommodating!!
Have fun and we will see you next year!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Steve
Thank you so much for your glowing
Review.
I didn't realize that you had rented for so
Many years. Time certainly does fly.
Since we usually use the house before you rent,
I have seen your family grow so much.
Again, thank you and we'll see you again next
Year.

Great beach house for our family vacation!

  • 4 of 5
We rented Shirley's beach house for a family vacation during the first week of August and had a great time! We all will look forward to a return visit! The location is ideal and my grandkids had a wonderful time playing in the surf and observing wildlife. There are gorgeous views from the deck and that is where I spent a lot my time, watching sea birds and dolphins and amazing sunsets. We found the house to be clean, homey and comfortable. The west facing bedroom got a bit warm in the afternoon sun (temp was high 90s outside) but cooled off quickly - the AC seemed to work fine during our stay, even with kids running in and out. Unlike one prior guest, we saw no mold or bugs. I had no hesitation in using the bathrooms or bedrooms as they were left - and I am a RN and my daughter is a nurse practitioner, both very aware of cleanliness. The only slight issue I found was that a few dishes seemed a bit greasy but I always wash dishes before use in any vacation rental. Thanks, Shirley, for sharing your home with us. Nancy K and family

Owner's Response: Hi nancy

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a
Wonderful review.

I'm so glad that you can understand
What a terrific heat load the house gets when that sun
Hits the windows. The real heavy drapes in the living
Room help tremendously when they are drawn.


I'm going to have that dishwasher checked and perhaps
Put a note up to guests to make sure the dishes they put
Away are clean.

Thank you again
