**TAKE A LOOK AT OUR VIRTUAL TOUR**

Anna Maria Island offers the ideal destination for peace and tranquility. The northern village is surrounded by white sandy beaches, and the island itself has kept its old charm attraction. You can take the Free Trolley Bus from the City Pier all the way to the bottom of the island at Coquina Beach. Bike riding is the most popular activity in the northern village. An early morning ride to Ginee`s and Jane E`s Deli in the quirky Antique shop is a must for a daily fix of wonderful coffee`s, homemade pastries, cakes and

breakfkasts.

*FREE WiFi BROADBAND INTERNET ACCESS**

Pelican Drive is a quiet residential cul-de-sac, safe for children and only a 2 minute walk to the nearest beach and Anna Maria City Pier. During the day, you can stroll along one of the two piers found on the North, and you might even see a Dolphin or two swimming close by. There is an excellent choice of restaurants close by including the famous 'Sand Bar.' Here the sunsets are incredible, and there is nothing better than watching the sun go down with your favorite cocktail whilst the children play safely on the beach.

Our renovated bungalow offers space and modern amenities for the utmost enjoyment of your holiday. With the addition of an extra bedroom, the home is ideal for two families. The private swimming pool was added 2005 surrounded by decking and a lush garden leading to the Boat Dock.

Apart from the comfortable lounge area with two sofas, TV and DVD, we have created a further lounge overlooking the pool with a large picture window, Flat Screen TV and French doors leading into the Lanai with Breakfast table and sofa. Both areas are close to the refurbished kitchen with every amenity you could wish for.

Dining is easy with a more formal table for 6 which can extend to seat eight, and of course the Lanai has a dining area with cane chairs, is fully carpeted with screening and an overhead fan. So you can relax with the extra comforts and enjoy the indoor and outdoor life. Evenings are especially beautiful sitting here with the soft sound of the birds and the beautiful colors of the sky.

The Master King bedroom is spacious and has en suite facilities with double sinks, shower, toilet and walk-in wardrobe. The room also has a sliding door into the Lanai area, a great area for reading before breakfast.

The two twin bedrooms are bright and airy and benefit from large walk-in wardrobes. The family bathroom has been completely updated.

The newly added second Master bedroom boasts a brand new wet shower, vanity unit and cream colored furniture, which compliments the room. We have also added a wall mounted flat screen TV for further relaxation.

Please bring your Lap Top for Free Internet access.

About Elaine Donnelly

My husband John and I have a daughter aged 16 years. My hobbies include walking, keeping fit, socialising with my friends and reading. As my star sign is Cancer, living in the Midlands in England with a 2 hour drive to the sea I have to have my regular fix of the ocean!

Having been in the Travel Industry for many years I have travelled extensively and yet Anna Maria Island is my favourite place.

Elaine Donnelly purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Elaine Donnelly chose Anna Maria Island

When we first visited Anna Maria in 2005 we fell in love with the island and bought our property during that visit! We chose Anna Maria because of the beaches, the weather, the fact that you don`t necessarily need a car when you can take the Free Trolley bus around the island and ride our bikes to the beaches and restaurants. There are no fast food chain outlets on the island.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our home overlooks the water and we spend many hours sitting by the pool or in the lanai watching the birds whilst the sun goes down and the children love the swimming pool. We now have three lounge areas so if there are 2 families on vacation the house is spacious with the 2 master bedrooms are on either side of the house for added privacy. You can walk to the nearest beach in 2 minutes and the spectacular Bean Point is a 2 minute drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are now back from our holiday at your amazing home in Anna Maria and I just wanted to email our thanks and let you know that we had a wonderful time, we have stayed in Anna Maria 4 times now and we both agreed that yours was the nicest! It was so quiet and peaceful and so convenient for the City pier, Rod and Reel, Ginny's and Jane's and more!



It was so nice to sit in the Lani in the mornings and watch all the birds we even saw a hummingbird one morning!



However the main thing I wanted to say was you have a lovely home there and we loved every second Thank you so much and I hope we will be able to book with again when we return next year!

Loved this vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in the perfect location. AMI was lovely! This was our first visit to the island and it won't be the last. The house far exceeded our expectations and had just about everything you need for a wonderful vacation. We spotted sea urchin, starfish, snails and several fish in the canal behind the house. There were birds visiting the backyard each day. It was a little piece of paradise.

Another day in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the Island for over 25 years, that should tell you enough about AMI !!

We try to stay North End as it is so peaceful, we also like to try different properties and all have been really good. However, we may now change our mind and come back to this one, it is just about as good as it gets!. Great pool, great sunbathing area, lovely jetty onto the canal, great fun fishing off it, perfect lanai room for evenings. Just loads to do without even leaving the property. Furnishings, floorplan all work great for a 4 bedroom property allowing a level of independence ie we are grandparents....our room was separated from the other three by the kitchen and lounge areas. Just enough for a little peace and quiet! Yep AMI is the best place for a vacation and this is the ideal property to maximise that enjoyment. (owner is really pleasant and helpful as well!!)

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. The house was great. Good location. Be sure and fish off the city pier just a few blocks away , even if you are not a fisherman. We caught fresh mackerel there . The dolphins were very entertaining , the losbster bisque with a cold beer was a spectacular lunch, and we had a manatee sighting . Bean point is three blocks away and a great place to watch the sunset. So many birds. We hated to leave.

A true delight!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and his family stayed at this lovely home. We had 5 adults and 2 teenagers. The bedrooms are large and beds were accomodating for the number of people we had. The kitchen was well equipped as was each bathroom with towels. We spent many evenings in the screened porch area which is large and has a beauitful oval table that accomodated all 7 of us playing cards. The pool area is beautiful with 4 padded lounge chairs.

We took advantage of the 4 bikes provided and took morning rides around the neighborhood and along the ocean. Thanks for providing.

We ate at the Sandbar which I would recommend. We also took a trip to Siesta Key Beach about an hour and it was well worth the time.

The home and property is clean and well maintained. The photos reflect the true appearance; however, I believe the pool area is far more beautiful than the photos show!

Anna Maria Condo

  • 5 of 5

We visited Anna Maria Island in June and loved it. Your condo is in a great location just a short distance from everything on Anna Maria Island. We enjoyed riding the bikes for coffee in the morning. The condo was clean, well maintained and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the peace and quiet on this end of the Island. We enjoyed the many birds that visited the pool area and fishing from the dock. Wish we could have stayed longer!! The owners were responsive to questions and I would recommend this condo.

Great find in Anna Maria Island!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on Anna Maria Island and enjoyed your home tremendously. We met your neighbors on the right and met a visitor a few houses down as well. We actually got to swim with visiting manatees in the gulf which was a real treat.

I especially liked how your house is laid out with the various sitting areas. The air conditioning was great as it got up to 90 degrees a few of the days we were there. We enjoyed the pool and the guys fished from the dock. I enjoyed riding the bikes around the neighborhood too.

I love the upgrades you have done – the bathrooms and the kitchen. You have great taste in your décor. It was very clean. I could have stayed for a month!

We'll be back!
