My wife and I both grew up in the mid-west. I moved to Florida when I was 18 years old to escape the ruthless winters. I have never looked back. Donna, my wife has been here for 16 years. We both love the beach and the north end of Anna Maria.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 1981
I bought this place when I was in my 20's and lived on the island for 10 years. My career dictated that I move closer to work so we now live in town. I thought that I would never move off of the island. We are just now beginning to make it available for seasonal rental so that we can come out to the island and enjoy it too.
We have furnished the place with our own tastes in mind. The screen lanai with bar and flat screen tv is one of the amenities that I really enjoy. I work on my laptop from home as well as at the office so the high speed internet connection, unlimited long distance service in the US and Canada and desk to work from is a must for me. Donna has to make our place her nest so the attention to detail in the decorating is beautiful. I am somewhat of a techno freak so my 40 inch HDTV and HD DVR with Direct TV Satelite makes my nights at home most entertaining. Days of course, are spent enjoying the amenities that Anna Maria island has to offer. The beach and bay are both within walking distance. There is a bicycle rental shop two short blocks away. There are two piers for fishing very close by and many restaurants too. The Anna Maria trolley travels the length of the island and is free of charge so you can explore at will and our beaches are truly world class. I can't express in words the beauty of Anna Maria island. You will have to see for yourself.
