This stunning BEACHFRONT home was designed by an award winning Architect and is true paradise. The plan is open with the Living, Dining, Kitchen and Master Bedroom on the Waterfront adjacent to the deck which runs the entire length of the home. The elevated deck is a mere 10' from the waters edge. The Master Bedroom Suite has a walk-in closet and an opulent bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and shower. There is a king size bed in the Master Suite and a 37' flat screen t.v.. The Master Suite has direct access to the waterfront deck.
The other two bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home with flat screen t.v.'s also.
Barbecue on the waterfront deck while the sun sets. Walk to the Anna Maria City Pier within 5 min. or enjoy other nearby restaurants and shopping.

I'm a local Architect, I've lived here all my life, I enjoy fishing, swimming, and walking on the beach, I travel extensively with my three dogs and husband.
Laura Gee purchased this house in 1993
I love Anna Maria, the quaint village atmosphere, the fabulous beaches, the great restaurants and shopping.
I love being car free, utilizing the free trolley and walking on the beach or just floating in the water working on my tan. One of my favorite things to do is barbeque on the waterfront deck as the sun sets while enjoying the dolphins and birds.
My apologies for not writing this review sooner.
We had the opportunity to stay at this property for a month.
Great home, location, owner, etc.
You can walk, bicycle or take the public transportation to most every place on the island.
Would highly recommend!
We had the best time in this beach front home. The house was very comfortable for our family. Lots of room to spread out, but we tended to congregate on the porch overlooking the beach.
The house is as described. Three bedrooms on the upper floor. (You have to be able to walk up a full flight of stairs in order to get to the living space) Incredible views of the water from the kitchen, front room, and master bedroom. It was in a great location near stores and restaurants that you could walk to and just a short drive to all the other places on the island. There is a free trolley that you can ride that takes you from one end to the other. It really helped that there was a washer/dryer in the unit.
I looked up other rentals on the island and actually went to look to see where they were, as we are planning on returning. Based on the price and location, I couldn't find another one that offered as much as this unit, even if you removed the pet friendly filter.
Laura, the owner, was very helpful and quick to return calls and emails. When we needed another light bulb because one burned out, it was there the next morning. The refund check was sent back quickly also.
The owner let us have our dog at the house, which was great. Although, the island itself is not really dog friendly. You are not allowed to have your dog on the beach; however, we kept her on the beach right by the house and didn't have any problems. Plus, there is a beach on the causeway that you can have dogs.
One thing I didn't understand from the pictures is how you got to the beach from the house. There is a staircase that goes from the porch down the side of the house and then you walk under the porch. This is a nice area where you can be right by the water but not in the sun. Then there are three stairs to the sand. My daughter loved laying out on the beach.
The only thing I could even think of that might improve the rental is to have twins beds in one of the bedrooms. Regardless, we were 110% satisfied with our stay and are planning on returning.
Thank you, Laura.
This house and owners were perfect! My husband, two sons, one daughter, and dog stayed for a full week and had one of the best vacations of our life. The environment in Anna Maria Island is incredibly peaceful and relaxing, and staying at this house was just what we needed. The house is very large, well furnished, and uniquely decorated. The common areas-kitchen, living room, balcony, and dining room- have the best ocean front view and allowed our family to be connected throughout the entire day. The house is well equipped with more than enough towels, toiletries, and kitchen utensils/plates for a large family. The house is right on the beach and the pictures on the website do a fine job of showing the beauty of the house and its surroundings. The view of the ocean from the many windows on the house is just breathtaking! Early mornings were greeted with the calm ocean and unforgettable sunrise. Dolphins were seen numerous times throughout the day making their way across the ocean. Sunsets made perfect hues of reds and orange streaks on the gorgeous sky. The house is a short walk from the Anna Maria City Pier which has a local restaurant on the end. It is also where the free city trolley stops. This area also has cute boutiques and small shops/restaurants to definitely try! Our family was a fan of the Two Scoops ice cream shop! We also loved having Beach Bums nearby (a place to rent equipment for entertainment). We tried the cruiser bikes one day and had a nice ride around the island. My son and daughter also had a blast when we rented the single kayaks for the ocean and they were able to ride for a while and make stops at the house for food and drinks to replenish their energy. We have made several summer trips to the Gulf coast on different cities, but staying at this house on Anna Maria Island surely tops our list by a wide margin. We can’t wait to come here again! We highly recommend this place as anyone will fall in love the same way my family and I did!
My family and I spent a couple of days at this house for my birthday. We had an excellent stay! The house is great and equipped with pretty much everything you need, and the views were amazing!! It was wonderful to wake up each morning to the Bay! If you want to explore, the pier and some nearby restaurants are within a five minute walk. We really enjoyed our stay and really appreciated how easy it was to arrange everything with the owner. Thanks again! We definitely recommend this place!
This house was beautiful. I drove there and stayed for a month so it was nice to have a car but was not really needed. The trolley runs the length of the island and the stop is right up the street. The master bedroom overlooks Tampa bay and was wonderful to wake up to. We saw dolphins almost everyday swimming by in the bay, as well as sting rays and even manatees. The bonus of this house was the deck that overlooked the bay. Many surrounding houses had patios but being on the raised deck we could see much more wildlife in the water. This location is great for small kids because you are just a few steps to a pretty private beach. The gulf beach is 6 blocks the other direction which has a bigger beachfront if you need a change in scenery. I had both of my dogs with me and they loved it. Dogs are not allowed on the beach on Anna Maria but we often drove to the dog park where they could swim. Beach bums is right up the street and delivered a Kayak right to the backyard. The kitchen is big and fully stocked with what you would need for cooking. We often grilled on the deck and ate dinner at the outside table. I had an unforgettable vacation and enjoyed this place very much. I looked at many houses when I was there but after staying at this place not many compared. Especially because it was right on the water. I've traveled all over the world but keep coming back to Anna Maria because it is one of the most beautiful restful places.
The best present I ever received for Valentine's Day was a lovely holiday at this beach house. The house is gorgeous, and everything in place for a relaxing holiday - nearby restaurants and the pier - a trolley around the island to see the sites (and shop!) and floats to laze around in the water by the house - or to take down to any of the beautiful beaches on the island. The kids bedrooms and bath are separate to the master suite - with its own enormous bathtub - so private sanctuary for me and my beloved.
Holding hands while looking out over the water as the sun sets is pretty close to perfection!
