About Debi Wohlers

We moved from Tampa, FL to Anna Maria Island full-time in 2011.

I was born and raised in Tampa and visited Anna Maria Island many times as a child.

After selling my computer software business in 2007, I bought a 'weekend' place in Holmes Beach in 2008. I immediately fell in love with the island and the friendliness of the locals.

It is a charming small town that I know you too will enjoy.

Debi Wohlers purchased this house in 2013

Beautiful beach home with lovely pool

  • 4 of 5

We rented the Crab Shack for our family of five. It was perfect in every way as far as comfort and amenities on the inside. Newly redone, fresh decor, laundry on site, and well equipped kitchen! Pool is larger size and beautifully done. Rare to find a nice size pool with rentals. The only negative thing was the longer walk to the beach. It was approx 6 blocks or more. Longer than I had anticipated when I asked owners. Although it is still within walking distance, it is a hike if you have bad knees or lots to take with you. (I.e. Beach chairs, umbrellas, small kids!) we wished for better beach chairs...and a sand cork screw for beach umbrellas! Chairs were old and falling apart, rusty and would not hold a 180 lb adult comfortably. Perfect home for "staying put" and enjoying pool and BBQ or seeing the sites. Not so perfect if you love the beach, our kids were used to running back and forth alone and here we couldn't do that.

The accommodations were very comfortable. The kitchen is well furnished. There are plenty of beach towels, bath towels and linens. We were able to access the beach easily - having the beach furniture provided was a plus. The pool was wonderful - many afternoons spent pool side. The island is fabulous - many activities to choose from or just relax. The trolley and monkey bus were great assets especially when we didn't want to fight with parking on the island. The family who shared the location loved it. We will be back.

Two weeks in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Spent the first week with our adult children and spouses, the second week with friends. All were sad to leave and can't wait to return. This house was our refuge after spending the days on world class beaches, shelling, shopping the boutiques and enjoying excellent restaurants. Renting bikes helped make our holiday. Easy biking as the island is flat and the drivers very courteous. Rode all over the island. Favourites were Bean Point and the two Piers, never missed a sunset at our local beach.

Debi's house was wonderful, well maintained, well stocked, very comfortable. Couldn't have asked for anything more. We used the private, heated pool every afternoon when the sun was beaming into the back yard. Pool deck well supplied with chairs and loungers. Shed with beach buggy and toys was appreciated.

Debi was very prompt on all our inquiries during the process of renting which was really appreciated. It's obivious she is a dedicated owner and does her best to make everyone welcome.

Wouldn't change a thing. Can't wait to return.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Really a great place to spend one's holidays. Perfect design of a well-maintained house with all amenities of high quality and standards, spacious rooms, nice pool and cosy patio made us feel at home from the very beginning. The owner is obviously caring a lot for the comfort and pleasant feelings of her guests. Many thanks, Debie. We visited a few places during our holidays in Florida, Anna Maria Island and your house were unanimously ranked first by all of us (three generations).

We also enjoyed the beaches, restaurants and the tranquility of the island. One of the highlights was the New Year's Eve party with dinner, wine and fireworks on the beach.

We definitely will book the house again for our next trip to Florida and will also recommend it to relatives and friends.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Great place that was like new. Very comfortable furnishings and the beach decorating made you feel so relaxed. Loved the pool and the close proximity to the beach. We rented a golf cart because we had one of our family members who could not make the walk to the beach. Got up early each morning and took the car with chairs, etc. to the beach parking area and drove the cart down after everyone was up. Also loved the little town of Anna-Maria. Go to the General Store and get a sluice of cake or whole key lime pie. Also enjoyed Rudy's breakfast sandwiches and looking in all of the small shops. I give this place an A+. We would definitely stay again.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with our accommodations during our stay in Anna Maria Island! The house had everything we needed-modern amenities, great pool and patio area, comfy beds! I would definitely come back and rent this place again! We have already passed on the info to a couple of our friends and family that want to vacation in the area.

Anna Maria Island
Car: recommended

Anna Maria Island is a quaint Barrier Island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico.

Beautiful turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are the main attraction here. It is a place where 'old' Florida charm can still be found, flip flops are a way of life and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph.

High rise condos and fast food restaurants are pleasantly absent from our pristine 'get away from it all' island.

Our accommodations and restaurants offer something for everyone. From quaint cottages by the sea to deluxe suites, from million-dollar villas to rustic cottages.

One visit to Anna Maria Island and you will be calling it, 'My island in the sun'.
