Anna Maria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Willow Landing at 209 Willow Ave. is 1400 square feet of newly-tiled and painted island living designed for couples or families who love the beach or boating or both. And, unlike other rentals on the island, our rent INCLUDES CLEANING.

This ground level house is 200 yards from the Gulf beach (a two minute walk) , 25 steps from our dock, and within walking, biking or free trolley distance from a host of fun activities and shopping. Off-island and within 20 miles are multitudes of restaurants, shopping, other beaches and the arts and gardens of Sarasota.

The master bedroom sports two queen beds and a HD TV. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a futon/bunk which sleeps 3 comfortably. There is plenty of floor space for collapsible sleeping as well. Two renovated full baths provide a tub or a large walk-in shower. The full-sized washer and dryer are in the two-car garage as is the large freezer. A big beach wagon, chairs and beach towels ensure an easy walk to the Gulf. A flat panel, cabled TV will entertain the stay-at-homes. The fully-equipped large kitchen will ease most kitchen duties, while diners eat at the bar or on the extendable dining room table. And for the one who can't leave work at home, there is broadband, wi-fi and even a printer/fax for those distance office duties.

A screened lanai and outside seating area offer comfortable outside views of the 'trained' wildlife that visit the fish-cleaning station. Charcoal grilling is available also in the large back yard. After launching your boat close by, you may tie-up at Willow Landing's dock and seawall area. Boat, canoe and kayak rentals are available close by as well.

Willow Landing rents for a minimum of one week only.

About Barb Wallace

We are the Wallace family, next generation owners of this great house near the most beautiful beaches in America. Our dad recently completed his stay on Anna Maria after 38 years, and we have re-created the dream with a complete 2009 re-do of the house he and Mom loved. We Wallaces have owned property and enjoyed the island and it's waters since 1958. This is our only property to rent, and we keep it in the lifestyle and condition that lets us enjoy the island to the max.

Barb Wallace purchased this house in 2009

Why Barb Wallace chose Anna Maria

We understand the value of island life having committed many holidays, vacations, reunions and, yes, even weddings to this special place in Florida. We see every reason to continue these habits and to share them with those who love to do what we do.

What makes this house unique

Being located on the end of a canal has enabled us to anchor several fishing-style boats for a quick return to the open water any time of the day or night. Open bay waters are an easy ten minute cruise away. A block walk to the beach allows the non-fisherman easy access with the beach wagon for kids and stuff. The ground level design of this house is enabling and safe for toddlers, the elderly, grocery unloading and just more fun for everyone. The spacious garage provides salt-free, dry parking and unloading. We all have small dogs that we enjoy while we're here. There are miles of wonderful walking to be enjoyed, and the tiled floors are perfect for dogs and sandy feet. Newly restored and revived Pine Street shoppes and restaurants are just four walking blocks away. We love to have breakfast at the Sign of the Mermaid on the next block.

Such a Lovely Spot

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky to stay for a week this April. Willow Landing is the perfect Anna Maria get-away. The location was wonderful...just a short stroll to the beach! It is also just far enough from Pine Ave to be super peaceful and quiet.

The house is well equipped and furnished so well, and we love to cook---the kitchen is definitely for the traveling chef! Our dog, Harry, made himself home right away, and was quick to find a furry fox in the dog toy bin.

We look forward to staying again, and are thinking about extending our stay for more than a week.

Anna Maria Canal Front - JUST LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
WOW… This place is OUTSTANDING! We hesitant to give it THE REVIEW IT DESERVES as it may now give us competition booking next time. If only we could move in permanently. The pictures provided were accurate but did not do it justice. The place is clean, comfortable, and relaxing. ...Not to mention beautiful .There was more than ample space for 2 adults, 2 18 yr. olds and two small dogs to live in comfort. The area was such that we are SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING a move there. It has everything you could want. Sun, sand and water just steps away.

Thank you Barbara and family for sharing your home!

Clean, comfortable and fully equipped Anna Maria.

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled to find this nice Anna Maria/Holmes Beach ranch on short notice as they had just the week we wanted open! Lucky. Once we arrived we saw why it's often booked. Clean, lots of home items so you aren't lacking anything. Plenty of kitchen space, comfortable beds, big TV and on a quiet residentail street not far from the beach. A quick stock up at Publix and you're set. Lots to do besides the nearby beach - eat at Hurricane Hanks, the Lazy Lobster, and Basils (sigh) for ribs. Hit the Red Barn flea market for veggies and trinkets. Thanks Barb!

A Happy Note

  • 5 of 5
Dear Barb and Rob,

We just wanted to drop a note and tell you that ALL four of us (and both dogs) REALLY enjoyed your home! As a matter of fact we all agreed that we liked it better than ANY of the other places on AMI where we have stayed in the past. As I said, we have been coming to AMI as often as we can for at least the past ten years.

We really enjoyed the location, the floor plan, and the fact that you had taken care of everything for us ahead of time. It was a joy to be able to stay there. We tried to take care of it and to leave it just as we found it, and we hope that we might be able to stay at your place again sometime in the future.

Thank you again,

The Disneys of Indiana
