You've found your beautiful Florida beachfront home! Forget the ''steps to the beach'' places. At Turtleview Condo, you'll be directly on the legendary 9 miles of pristine white sand beaches of Anna Maria Island. You'll have the largest beachfront pool on the island, as well as great Gulf swimming, shelling, and walking. Turtleview is a newly renovated 2 bedroom/2 bathroom corner unit condo with beach views from every room. It's perfectly set up for 2 couples or for your family to share. You can enjoy the gentle Gulf breezes, switch on the ceiling fans, or use the central air-conditioning.
Turtleview is a corner unit with views up and down the beach. It's furnished in comfortable, colorful tropical furnishings. The screened verandah is directly beachfront and it's large enough to eat a meal, play a game (many games are provided), or simply sit, read, and sip a margarita or a smoothie that you've made in the new ''turbo'' blender.
You'll be able to watch the many seabirds and pelicans diving for fish, and watch the dolphins as they fish and play. During the season, you'll have the great seaturtle nests directly on the beach in front. Join the Turtle Watch volunteers in the early mornings and locate and monitor the nests. (See more about this on our website.)
The kitchen is equipped with everything a gourmet cook could ask for as well as a microwave if you are on vacation from your culinary duties... There is a dishwasher, a bread machine, icemaker in the freezer, and an icecream maker. Nice glassware, crockery, and serving pieces are in place. Complete linens including beach towels are provided. We will also arrange to have basic provisions provided for you if you're arriving in the middle of the night - just give us a list!
Both bedrooms have their own complete bathrooms which make it easy when sharing the condo.
There are 3 televisions.
A clean, coin-operated laundry is available on each floor of the building and is shared by only 9 other units. You'll have a private garage with automatic opener provided. Most guests rent cars or drive their own. For larger groups, or when a group wants to enjoy different activities(golf vs shopping?) during the day, the free Island Trolley stops very near the main entrance of the condo building. Again, see our website for more information.
We know how it is to book accomodation and worry that our choices have been the right ones. We like to think that Turtleview Condo is the Beach Place that we'd all like to come to.
