Newly Remodeled, large (2600 sq ft, 242 sq. m), 5 bedroom/3.5 bath Ground Level Home (no stairs!) with Heated Pool. Two Living areas make it easy for multiple families to enjoy. Just over a block from the white sand beaches and the free Island trolley, and a short walk to Shops and Restaurants in Holmes Beach. Sleeps up to 12!
Since purchasing the home we completed a major renovation resulting in a more open floorplan and have added new furniture, bedding, flooring, granite breakfast bar, flat screen TVs, wireless Internet, landscaping, and new pool/decking with a Tiki Bar.
The bedroom layout is perfect for multiple families traveling together. There are 2 master bedrooms - one king and one queen, each with a private full bath. The 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and a private half bath. The 2 remaining bedrooms have 2 twin beds in each room and share a hall full bath. Three of the 5 bedrooms are equipped with a TV.
The living room is equipped with a new 42'' flat-screen cable TV/DVD plus queen and twin sleeper sofas. The family room, also equipped with a new 42'' flat-screen cable TV/DVD, is open to the kitchen and leads directly onto the screened lanai and fully fenced pool. There is also a game room off the kitchen, perfect for family game night or for additional dining space. This is one of the few 5 bedroom homes on the island that is all on one level - no stairs for grandparents and families with small children to navigate.
Rising Tide is located just over a block from the 7-mile white sand beach of Anna Maria Island and is equipped with everything you need for a great beach vacation including beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, beach cart, large wheeled cooler, and outdoor shower.
Anna Maria Island is a special place with a pace and feel reminiscent of Old Florida.
There are no high rise condos, very few franchises, and just enough nightlife - the highlight being sunset over the Gulf of Mexico every evening.
Rising Tide is owned by a fun-loving family temporarily marooned in Cincinnati, who are just biding our time (and waiting for our kids to finish school) until we can live on Anna Maria Island full-time.
On a recent Spring Break trip we fell in love with Anna Maria Island and after a somewhat exhaustive real estate search, we found Rising Tide – our new home away from home. We have traveled throughout the Caribbean over the last 15 years, but were delighted when we found the “island life” right here on the West Coast of Florida! We’ve been working hard to update the house, add the pool and make it a place we (and we hope you too) look forward to returning to as often as possible.
