Guestbook comments from the manager
Anna Maria, Florida



Just south of Tampa, Anna Maria is a Gulf Coast beach town that has managed to avoid the sort of overdevelopment that plagues similar areas nearby – so it retains a certain small-town coastal Florida charm. With a high proportion of residences being second homes or vacation homes, Anna Maria tends to be much quieter as well. The entire city is a protected bird sanctuary, and don’t be surprised if you happen to meet a manatee during your morning swim. “It's an important sea turtle hatching ground, and for much of the year, there just aren't that many people on it,” says Cochran. “What's funny is that even though it's at the bottom lip of Tampa Bay, nine people out of ten in Florida don't even know where it is. European tourists have discovered it, but it seems like Floridians have been the last to find out.”

After enjoying the rental of Serendipity I, Rick and I fell in love with Serendipity II which is larger and on a corner lot. We enjoy the easy beach access across the street and relaxing back at our home with a beautiful view of the Gulf. We are opening our home to rent so you can enjoy it as well.

Rick is a Pittsburgh born sports enthusiast that turned Floridian at a young age. He has many fond childhood memories of times on the captivating Anna Maria Island. He is a great source for tickets to local sporting events, concerts or entertainment having worked in the industry for many years.

Lyn is a native Floridian who moved from the East Coast of Florida to the West Coast to raise her family. She and Rick love to stay active and have often biked from Anna Maria down through Longboat Key.

We look forward to making your stay at our home on Anna Maria Island a pleasant one that you will repeat for many years.

Rick or Lyn Puskas purchased this house in 2013

We love the quaint island feel with charming local shops and beautiful beaches so much that we are a little afraid to mention that Anna Maria Island was just voted # 4 Travelers' Choice 2013 Best Island.

Decorated and designed to make you feel comfortably home while enjoying the beautiful sand beach and spectacular sunsets.

Elevator access to all floors, open decks and a large home for families to enjoy.

PERFECT FIT FOR LARGE FAMILY WITH SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

  • 5 of 5
There were nine family members making the trip down to AMI and included my 86-year old grandmother and my parent's 9-year old daschund. Needless to say, it was very difficult to find a house that was handicap accessible AND pet-friendly. I was thrilled when I found this house and it met all of our requirements. When booking, our only dissapointment was that it did not have a pool but the month before we arrived one was installed! This house was perfect for those that want to spend all day at the beach (you are right across the street from a beach access with the BEST sunset view on the island AND we had a manatee and stingrays swim up to us while enjoying the sandbar), pool (perfect for those young and old with a shady deck) or quiet time on one of the porches for reading. The house, along with all the perks (golf cart, bicycles, beach gear, etc) exceeded our expectations and the owners were extremely helpful and attentive with any of our concerns!

WHAT A GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in this incredible house and could not have been happier. Rick and Lyn could not have been more helpful prior to our arrival and we had a couple of small issues with the house when we arrived that were taken care of very quickly. The house itself is perfect for large groups or a couple of families. I love to cook and spent each morning making breakfast and then prepared several dinners using the grill as well.

Very quiet location and a perfect walk out onto the beach made this great for our kids. We also spent time at our pool each day.

The house offers lots of privacy for families who need time away from each other! Separate decks and just the layout of the house made it great for us to "get away from the kids!"

There is also a 6 seat golf cart which you can drive all over the island (we recommend 2 scoops ice cream!)

We plan to return in 2015!

FOUR COUPLES TRIP

  • 5 of 5
My cousins and I along with our spouses were looking for a beach get away and we could not have been more pleased! The owners provided so much helpful information leading up to the trip and were available once we arrived if we needed anything dealing with the house. The home was BEAUTIFUL! There was plenty of space for all of us, plus some. We had a great time riding the provided bikes, touring the island with the golf cart and the short walk across the street to the beach was very convenient. The sand was so soft and the water was sea foam green, beautiful sunsets and great weather! We also enjoyed cooking steak and fresh fish dinner at the house one night. Eating out on the island was enjoyable too, plenty of options to choose from. All of us would highly recommend the cinnamon rolls from Ginny and Janes, but get there early because they sell out. Overall the trip was excellent and the house was more beautiful then we had anticipated, it's highly ranked in my vacation spots!

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is the perfect rental house! Not only is it gorgeous, fully updated and decorated so nice, it's in the perfect with location with the perfect amenities. The kitchen was big enough with an open concept that it provided an area all 8 of us could be together, not to mention the three separate porches that we had breakfast. The house is right across the street from the best beach on the island and the owners provided many items that made our stay so easy, (beach towels, toys, tennis rackets, umbrella, 4 bikes, golf cart for 6). Many restaurants in walking or driving distance, along with great recommendations by the owners. This house is perfect for any group of people. I almost want to keep this house a secret so it's not booked all year round. Thank again we had a fabulous time and loved Anna Maria!

SPRING BREAK FAMILY FUN!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week - this house truly is Serendipity at the beach!! The location was perfect with the beach right across the street - the sunsets were beautiful!! We also loved the fact that the house was located at the very tip of the island and the beach was less crowded!! We had 2 families (with teenagers) sharing this home and we all had room to spread out. The house, and especially the kitchen, was fully stocked with everything we needed! The golf cart, bicycles and beach accessories made it even better!! The owners were very attentive to any question/concern that we had during our stay - it was nice that we got to meet them while there!! Thanks Rick and Lyn for a great week - we hope to book this house again!!

GREAT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful five days at this house over Thanksgiving. The property is immaculate, extremely well maintained, a short walk across the street to the beach and is fully stocked with everything you need. The owners were very accomodating and easy to work with. This is much more than a beach vacation rental - it was a very spacious, comfortable and inviting home that I would be more than happy to live in all year long!
