Come...relax, unwind, and experience this carefree, enchanting, place and drift off to the sounds of the sea symphony.

Anna Maria Island: Anna Maria Island is an unpretentious beach community with no crowds or congestion. High rise buildings are taboo and dressing for dinner means changing into a clean pair of shorts and flip-flops. Or dress as elegant as you wish. It's all OK. Yet the island has everything for a memorable vacation-eclectic boutiques, art galleries, award winning restaurants, miles of beautiful pristine beaches and almost every water sport imaginable.

On the island: There are numerous activities available in the area for your enjoyment. Around the island you can enjoy shelling, jet skiing, kayaking, wildlife viewing, boat tours, parasailing, sailing, fishing charters,and of course great shopping and waterfront dining.

Across the bridges: Here's a partial list of what's available off island within a short drive.

Pirates and Orioles Spring Training, Historic Fishing Village of Cortez, Florida Maritime museum, Mote Aquarium,

St. Armand's Circle for shopping, Bishop Planetarium, Red Barn Flea market, Ringling Museum of Art and Museum of the Circus,, Desoto National Memorial Park, Manatee Village Historical Park, Mixon Fruit Farm, Sarasota with it's theaters,opera, ballet, and symphony.

I am a semi-retired dentist who needed a 2nd business to keep me occupied somewhat. So after 30 years of visiting my parents who wintered on Anna Maria, I decided to invest there. I love the island and the condo and always want it to be up to my standards of where I would want to stay. It is a studio but when I can hear the waves as I go to sleep, that is just about all I need. I have upgraded the condo a lot since I bought it and I'm always open to suggestions on how to make it better.

It's on the beach and I can hear the waves. I love Anna Maria Island.

Perfect for Great Weather Beach Vacation

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 3, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
This is a perfect place for beach lovers and active travelers. Which my wife and I are, so this was great for us.

Studio is just that: single room with bed and small table and a lounge chair. Small kitchen area with two burner stovetop, full-sized refrigerator, and microwave. No oven.

Great balcony overlooking pool, parking area, and beach.

There was perfect weather while we were there, so we were outside riding bikes, walking the beach, exploring the area, the entire time we were on Anna Maria.

This is not the place for vacationers seeking a luxurious place to camp out for a week or so. Furnishings were a bit tired, with a couple of the dresser drawer handles falling off (spot of glue would fix that), one of the lamps missing an on/off knob, and small rugs needing a serious cleaning or replacing.

Facility itself also a bit tired, but perfect for a centrally located base of operations. Close to Sarasota, close to Anna Maria village, close to Bradenton, right on the beach, easy walk to grocery store.

Staff were just outstanding: friendly, helpful, welcoming.

Heated pool at complex was really nice in winter -- Gulf was too cold for swimming.

Only reason I did not give a higher rating is that I think that if weather were bad when we were there and we had to stay indoors for any period of time the little things like dirty rugs and busted furniture would have gotten to us.

WOW, Amazing! Planning to go back this November!

This was our first time using Homeaway.com to book a vacation rental so my husband and I didn't know quite what to expect. When we opened the front door and walked in it looked exactly like the picture with the balcony and the beach with glistening water. Absolutely beautiful!

The rental was great for us; the grocery store was a very short drive away as well as great local restaurants, the beach is about a 30 second walk and the heated pool is about a 15 second walk. We were able to take the pool chairs to the beach to lounge, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

We went to two Pittsburgh Pirates training camp baseball games in Bradenton which only took about 20 minutes to drive to. We drove to Anna Maria, again another short drive, to the pier and the main street with a lot of local shops and eateries, it was absolutely adorable and charming!

The rental was great, very clean and well maintained. The furnishings were nice and beachy. It was great having a kitchen to be able to cook in instead of having to eat out for every meal.

We loved absolutely everything and are looking to come back for a longer stay this November.

For those who are reading this review if you are even remotely interested in this area, looking to go to the beach, enjoy island life or go to a ball game please give this place a try, it is great!

My husband and I spent a week at this condo in February 2011. It's a well maintained, clean unit with everything we needed for a relaxing and comfortable vacation. The view from the room was beautiful and we saw dolphins daily. The sunsets were breathtaking and we even experienced the green flash! This condo is walking distance to Sharky's restaurant and we traveled all around the island and had lunch at both of the pier restaurants. The island shuttle is a very nice feature, along with on site laundry facilities. A grocery store is nearby, along with plenty of shopping and places to eat. We highly recommend this beautiful condo and plan to return again.
