Overview

Anna Maria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This is the CLEANEST AND BRIGHTEST vacation rental you will find on the island! This bungalow is the SECOND FLOOR UNIT of a beachfront duplex. (The 3 bedroom ground floor unit is available as VRBO #298525)

Welcome to paradise! ANNA MARIA ISLAND is the first of the barrier islands located along Florida's Gulf Coast. It is about 7 miles long and 1/2 a mile wide. It is known for beautiful beaches, breathtaking sunsets and a boat load of really nice people. The number one activity in the area is to DO NOTHING AND RELAX ON THE BEACH.

This charming BEACH HOUSE is tucked away on a VERY QUIET STREET in the sleepy north end of the island. Far away from traffic, crowds, and tourists who like to party. It is the 2ND HOUSE FROM THE BEACH with no roads to block access. If you open your bedroom window at night, the only sound will be the rolling surf on the beach. This is truly the BEST LOCATION on the Island.

Your front door is less than 1 minute from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. The sand is like POWDERED SUGAR. It never gets hot on your feet because it is 99% pure quartz. The water is warm and shallow. The fishing is excellent. The SANDBAR RESTAURANT is a 5 minute stroll down the beach.

The unit is light and bright with a multitude of windows showcasing BREATHTAKING GULF VIEWS. Everything has been recently updated in a coastal decor featuring hand painted starfish on the walls. Some of the key amenities include a 47' Flat Panel HIGH DEFINITION TV, SONY STEREO dual speaker docking station, PLAYSTATION 2, lightning fast WI FI INTERNET and a Stearns & Foster (firm) KING SIZE BED.

Please view our HIGH DEFINITION VIRTUAL TOUR, then call or email with any questions. Book early because the premium dates fill up fast. With its ultra premium location and brand new amenities, this is the BEST VALUE on the vacation rental market!

About Stephanie

Originally from Minnesota, my husband and I moved to Anna Maria Island 10 years ago with our children to live the dream. That dream being, residing in a small beach community with pristine beaches and powdered sugar sand. Safe, quiet streets, and a great sense of community.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2004

Why Stephanie chose Anna Maria

We purchased this home 100% because of it's location. The view out of each west facing window is breathtaking. The property is located on a quiet dead end street and is only a few steps to one of the most pristine beaches in the world.

It doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Stephanie and Mike's place made our family vacation that much more special! After an awesome day at the beach and watching the evening sunset, Seaside Sanctuary was the perfect spot to end the day. The house had everything we needed, was clean, and very inviting. Plus morning coffee on the deck was the perfect way to start the day while looking out at the ocean. We highly recommend checking this place out and we look forward to a return visit.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful. The views of the ocean from the second floor are beautiful. Such a peaceful and relaxing vacation. Owners are great. The place is very clean and well maintained. Walking distance to shops, ice cream, fishing pier, and great restaurants. We stayed for a week and our vacation went by very fast….too fast. We wish we could've stayed longer. I would definitely recommend this property and we hope to return again soon.

Great Anna Maria location!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well equipped upper rental unit on the quiet north end of Anna Maria adjacent to a fabulous, wide white sand beach. The kitchen was well stocked, wi fi worked well and had nice TV, DVD player with DVDs, and Bose stereo. Many nice features, including lawn chairs and bikes. Location could not have been better. Very responsive owner. Replaced coffee maker within hours and emailed great recommendations of things to do on a rainy day. We give our highest recommend of this owner and property.

Relaxing Week at the Seaside Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful, relaxing week at the Seaside Sanctuary in Anna Maria. This 2 bedroom, 2nd floor rental unit met all of our needs. Being on the 2nd floor, we had a wonderful view of the sea oats, sandy beach, and ocean from the outside deck and inside living spaces. It was very peaceful listening to the ocean waves at night. The ceiling fans in the master bedroom and dining room really made it pleasant. The Wi-Fi worked great. This was a perfect place with plenty of room for the two of us to relax and entertain friends. When we return to Anna Maria, we would not hesitate to rent this place again. We have no complaints at all.
