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

Fantastic getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
This property is fabulous! We live in the area and were looking for a long weekend staycation. The house was clean, fresh and fantastic for us and our two children (6 and 1). Like other reviewers, we had to put some of the decorations out of reach of our toddler. We loved the pool and it was only a short walk to the beach and the Anna Maria Trolley. We can't wait to come back!!

Must Stay

  • 5 of 5
Situated on a quiet street, within walking distance to the beach, this little gem is absolutely pristine! Every detail was thought of in this beautiful beach bungalow! It was perfect for our beach vacation. It was adorable, but roomy enough for us to be very comfortable. The private pool was a luxury, and we thoroughly enjoyed this amenity. We will definitely be returning when we need a beach escape! Love Love Love this place!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5
We would highly recommend this property. It has everything you need, is very clean, is SUPER private (which at times is actually nice, to be away from the more busy parts of the island), with a wonderful pool. We rent vacation properties often and this is a very high standard when compared to others. The owners are also very professional and detail oriented. 5 stars!!

Definitely Coming Back!!

  • 5 of 5
This home was better than advertised. Everything was super clean and I am very picky about what I consider clean! The kitchen is fully stocked. There is a shed in the backyard that is fully stocked with beach supplies, as well as a beach cart to put all your beachy supplies on for the short walk to the beach. It's a 10 minute walk. Make sure to not miss the sunsets. They are beautiful. The pool was the perfect size for our family. It also has a large first step in the pool, that worked like a toddler pool for our little ones! This was our first visit to Anna Maria Island and we will definitely be back. Two of our favorite places we visited was The Sandbar Restaurant- tables right on the sand and Anna Maria Island Donuts. The donuts are delicious! Prepare to stand in line if you get there after 8:30am, but it's worth the wait! We can't wait to come back and visit this island and this home.

We will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5
We just left not even a week ago, and are already planning our next visit. This was our first visit to Anna Maria Island and we loved it. This home was perfect for our family! We have a toddler, so he was into all of the knick knacks that were at a low level, but there is so much extra cabinetry, that we were able to store everything so that it was out of his reach. The home is SO CLEAN!!! I never felt like anything was "dirty" like I typically feel in hotels. The floors were all tile, and super clean. The only thing to be aware of with the floors, are they get slippery when wet. We have 2 small kids, and sometimes they wouldn't completely dry their feet before walking back into the house from the pool, and the floor would be extra slippery. Speaking of the pool...... we loved it. It had a huge first step, that worked like a baby pool for our 2 toddlers. The sunsets are amazing at the beach..... only a short 10 minute walk away. The kitchen is fully stocked and the outdoor shed is stocked with beach toys for the kids, a beach cart, beach chairs, beach umbrella and even a cooler to take along. There are no baby items, such as high chair, pack n play, etc, but there are several places that rent baby equipment on the island.....and they deliver. Our favorite place to get breakfast was Anna Maria Island donuts....this is a must!! They are made to order, and come out warm!! Delicious!!! We also ate at the Sandbar one evening....delicious food and table seating on the beach!! I normally do not write reviews, but we loved this home so much, that I had to write this review. The pictures definitely do not do it justice!

Great Place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5
I was so happy with this rental. The pictures really don't do this space justice. Everything from the landscaping, the décor, the pool, and all the extras in the kitchen made our stay so enjoyable. We felt right at home. I actually over packed for this trip. There is more than what you will need in the kitchen to make any thing from a rice cooker, tea maker, nicer pots and pans than my own at home....it is really fully stocked compared to many and most. The property owner did not skimp on the details/upgrades, down to the nice flat screens. There is more than enough beach and pool towels and a fully stocked laundry room. No need to bring your cooler for the beach.... leave your umbrella and beach cart and pool floats at home( they are also new and nice). The pool is definitely the highlight of the property, complete relaxation! One night we ran out of fuel for the grill and literally within minutes the owner came right over in her golf cart and brought us a new one. Did I mention this place is super clean? We will definitely be back. I would love to bring my extended family back and rent both sides with the option of opening up the back gate to allow access between both pool patio areas. We had our 2year old with us and it was easy to manage, All one level. We had to pick up a few of the nick-nacks (no biggy) and even had the option to seal off the hall way with a pocket door. You will not be disappointed with this property unless you want to be on the ocean. I read a review about the beds being too hard, they are on the firmer side but not too firm. If you like a super soft bed and are particularly picky you may want to get an egg crate to give it that extra squish.

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'.
