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

Great rental unit!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with how nice, clean, and well-stocked this unit was. No complaints. We LOVED the pool! There were a couple of hiccups while we were there for the week but the owner took care of them right away. We will definitely be staying again!

Our stay was wonderful. It was exactly what my family and I needed. Having a private pool was so nice. The pool area was beautiful and the house was very clean. Little bit of a walk to the beach, but I was able to do it with my wife, 3, & 6 year old in about 10 minutes. Debbie was very nice. Hope to return next year, maybe for longer!

Comfy and Clean

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this duplex. It was very clean, comfortable and well stocked with everything one might need for a vacation in a beach community. The pool area was wonderful. Would suggest another comfortable adult size chair in the living room and also some hooks in the bedrooms/bath areas for hanging wet beach towels, etc. We have been spending time in Anna Maria for the past 20 years and it never fails to satisfy!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun staying in your duplex. The pool was fabulous and we spent a lot of time in it. It was comfortable and spotless. Loved the restaurants and shopping on the Island and only left it once to get Groceries . We took the sailboat sunset cruise and that was a blast. Looking forward to another stay.

Winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 2 weeks. We were looking for a winter getaway since we are from Iowa. The property was spic and span when we arrived. It looked even better than the pictures. We enjoyed the pool area when the weather cooperated. Unfortunately, the weather was cooler than we had hoped it would be. We rented bicycles, rode the trolley (which you can catch up the street), ate at many of the great restaurants, golfed, and enjoyed some tours in nearby Sarasota.

Our only issue was that the grill was out of propane and the battery on the starter was dead. We called the owner who came over and fixed the problem right away. We would also recommend another adult sized chair in the living room.

We highly recommend this property.

Anna Maria Island (5 minute walk)
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'.
