Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed for our daughter's wedding and found Island Dawn to be the perfect retreat. The house is very well equipped for cooking and even had a margarita maker! The pool and lanai were beautiful and we spent all of our free time relaxing poolside. The location is great - no busy streets to cross and the beaches are perfect. Can't wait to stay again.

Great Island Home and Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful stay and thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully decorated home. Loved that it is so close to everything of interest on the island ...beaches, restaurants, groceries, public tennis courts, parks, and sightseeing. The home felt quite spacious and was very clean on arrival. The pool area has a peaceful and private feeling, and the interior living areas are very comfortable and provided a serene setting for my vacation. I had visited this house some years ago, and was amazed at how it has been transformed recently into a wonderful home and fun retreat. I would gladly stay here again.

Perfect Place for Us

  • 5 of 5
We keep coming back. This lovely place meets our needs perfectly. We walk the beach, eat seafood at local restaurants, bicycle the island, relax and enjoy life. The kitchen has everything needed for cooking. The new gas grill this year is a great addition - no more charcoal. We had visitors several times this year and the layout is perfect. The guest bedrooms and bathrooms are on the other end of the house providing privacy. The grandkids love both the pool and the beach. The pool area is small, but private and nicely landscaped.The sounds of the fountains helps put me to sleep. When the weather is nice, we enjoy the lanai.

A couple more local things to try - the Anna Maria Community Center for Yoga/Pilates and lots of other stuff. Also you can get a local library card and the island branch of the Manatee Public library is great for books, DVDs, and kids books.

Thanks to Dawn and Dan for sharing their lovely house.

A Slice of Heaven

We were lucky to spend a week on the island and the home was perfect for a mid-winter escape. We'll be coming back next year!

Wonderful in every way!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second year at Island Dawn and we plan to come back next year. The location in a quiet residential neighborhood, the proximity to our favorite places and the spacious single family house are some of the reasons. It's also important that we have a pet friendly place.

Relaxing, peaceful, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5
Florida Island style one story home with all the charm of it's surroundings. Everything works great. The attached veranda was a nice addition and nice for a night time gathering a feel of the elements yet protected. The pool is the best small yet perfect for short laps very private. The bikes are really a great addition...Island cruisers. We biked down to bean point. Dawn was very accommodating and helpful. I would visit again...and recommend this home.

Anna Maria Island is a relaxing beach community on the Gulf of Mexico. The dining and entertainment options are many, and there are miles of beautiful white beaches to relax or play on. Recreation on the island includes sailing, fishing, parasailing, tennis, golfing, and kayaking. Getting around on the island is easy. You can drive, take the free trolley, walk, bike, or rent a segway scooter. Great shopping is available from the high-end shops at St. Armand's Circle in Sarasota to the outlet mall in Bradenton, with plenty of great local arts and crafts located right here on the island. There are local festivals, local theater, the Mote Marine Aquarium and Ringling Museum of the Circus in Sarasota, Bishop Planetarium in Bradenton, and Grapefruit League baseball in both Bradenton and Sarasota. Disney World and the assorted family parks of Orlando are just two hours away. And there is nothing like a sunset over the Gulf. Anna Maria Island welcomes you home!

Notes:
Island Dawn is equipped for fun! We have a beach cart and plenty of beach gear available, including chairs, noodles, a cooler, and boogie boards - and it's a straight two block walk to the Gulf beach. At the house, the screened lanai is a perfect spot for breakfast or lunch, with a table and four chairs for diners, and a sitting area with two chairs and a small couch. On the other side of the screen, the heated pool is surrounded by a combination of tropical foliage and places to recline. We have plenty of books, magazines, and DVDs, a PlayStation 2, puzzles and games for people of all ages.
