About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Anna Maria Island invites you to sandy beaches in a tropical setting. With easy access from Tampa or Sarasota airports, this condo is located on a slender spit of land at the south end of this barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico. This unique setting has direct frontage on the Sarasota Bay to the east, and is 30 steps from the Gulf of Mexico beaches to the west. The beaches are never crowded, because the island allows no high rise buildings. You can walk for 7 unobstructed miles along the sandy beaches, or collect a wide variety of shells.

Enjoy expansive views of the water from your living room or bedroom. Or relax and enjoy the sunset from your lanai. A private dock provides a space for fishing in the Sarasota Bay, or docking a boat for deep water fishing excursions. The Gulf of Mexico is at your front door, with great swimming, wide sandy beaches, shells, children's playgrounds, and beautiful sunsets. The Sarasota Bay is at your back door, with a pool and picnic spot overlooking the water. There are 2 golf courses on the island, and 45 more courses within minutes. Bring your boat, fishing and snorkeling gear, and golf clubs, because this island has it all. Beach towels, chairs, and children's sand toys are provided.

The town of Bradenton Beach, on the island, offers prize winning restaurants. grocery shopping, and many fine boutiques and beach shops. There is also a free trolley car that travels the length of the island. Sarasota, the cultural capital of Florida, is a 20 minute drive away, offering world class musical, dance, and theatre performances. Tampa is a beautiful 50 minute drive over bridges and along the Tampa Bay.

About Carolyn Burke

Anna Maria Island is a great place for children. We bought our condo so that we would have a comfortable place to take our children for vacation. We can fish off the boat dock. Docking our boat at our back door, with easy access to the inter-coastal waterway, is heavenly. The children love collecting shells on the beach, and the sand on the island beach is beautiful.

Carolyn Burke purchased this condo in 2002

Why Carolyn Burke chose Anna Maria Island

We chose Anna Maria Island because the beaches are beautiful, and the island does not allow high rise buildings. This means that the beaches are not crowded, and we can walk for seven uninterrupted miles along the Gulf. The stretch of land where our condo is located is a narrow isthmus with the Sarasota Bay on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other, for beautiful water views, boating and swimming. We love the atmosphere of 'Old Florida' we have found on the island.

What makes this condo unique

Our property is the only one on Anna Maria Island that has both a boat dock and a beautiful beach within 30 steps of our door.

A clean, beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Coquina Moorings, unit #204. The beach here is a brief walk across a two lane road to an uncrowded beach with beautiful sand and many nice shells. The Sarasota Bay provided good fishing from the Condo dock, and we rented a pontoon boat at the local marina for a couple of great days on the water. The condo is well stocked with all the beach toys you may need, the kitchen is well equipped, and the beds are comfortable. Over-all, a great vacation experience.

Amazing vacation condo!

  • 5 of 5

Coquina Moorings is an amazing condo on Anna Maria Island! Having reserved this condo for our three previous trips, I can say that we are spoiled by the experience offered by this one of a kind getaway.

Recent renovations have made this vacation home even better as the owners have put a lot of time and effort into making this condo feel more like home, and offer amenities seldom found at high end resorts. large bathrooms with beautiful showers, a massive kitchen with a new stove, range, and every kitchen gadget needed to prepare gourmet meals, and two private balconies really set this condo apart from others. You cannot get closer to the beach, nor the bay, and the private pool and amazing views are always beautiful. Not to mention that you are mere blocks away from food, drink, and entertainment!

I cannot recommend this condo highly enough, and look forward to our next trip to Florida, and the opportunity to stay in this beautiful condo. The owner is friendly and very attentive, the property is always clean and well maintained, and I would highly recommend this condo to anyone traveling to Anna Maria island.

Nothing better than Coquina Moorings!

  • 5 of 5

We always look forward to our visit to Anna Maria and staying at this lovely condo. The sunrise and sunset cannot be found in many condos but this one has a lanai for both! It is well maintained and well stocked with everything you need. Bradenton Beach is very accessible from this condo. Excellent place!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Anna Maria Island and we are looking forward to visiting again. This condo had everything we needed. It was very well stocked with all of the necessary items. It is also decorated very nicely. It is conveniently located to shops, restaurants, and the trolley stop. There was a beach market on Sunday and Wednesday and we attended both days. The paved path across the street made walking to the market and the park easy and relaxing. Fishing off from the dock was great as it was very convenient and successful. The location of this condo is perfect and the views are beautiful!

Ideal place

  • 5 of 5

Recently remodeled with granite counters and everything you could possibly need. Absolutely beautiful location. You can watch the sunrise on the back screened in porch over the intercoastal and sunsets across the street on the beach. Once you're there, no need for a car, since you can ride the Anna Maria bus for free. Close to Cortez, so easy to see sites close to Anna Maria in Sarasota/Bradenton area like Ringling museum, etc. lots to see and do in the area. Loved the paved trail across the street ..,great for biking or walking in a shaded area next to the water.
