POOL IS COMING -- FALL 2016 -- FINALLY RECEIVED PERMITS!!!

POOL IS COMING -- FALL 2016 -- FINALLY RECEIVED PERMITS!!!

**** IT WILL BE THE LARGEST PRIVATE POOL... WITH TWO PRIVATE/INTIMATE SEATING AREAS SURROUNDED BY VEGETATION AND SHADED BY PERGOLA; TWO SPAS ALSO PRIVATE/INTIMATE, AND A HUGE SWIMMING AREA FOR VOLLEYBALL AND AWESOME MARCO POLO. THIS IS ***NOT*** A TINY "SIP AND DIP" SPA SIZED POOL.

*** One of the most reasonably priced vacation homes on Anna Maria. Able to sleep 7 comfortably, this charming raised cottage-like duplex vacation home is freshly updated and ready for your relaxing trip. It is not a Ritz, but it is very clean and very comfortable with a fantastic setting. The location is awesome.

Our home has gorgeous views overlooking a small private lake (pond) which provides for beautiful sunrises to awaken by, fishing, kayaking, and bird watching. Light, bright, and very comfortable, this home also sports kitchen with breakfast bar and dining table for eight. There is room for the entire family or all your friends to enjoy this great Family, Fido, and Budget Friendly home... for a price that allows them to actually come!

In the heart of historic city of Anna Maria, we are located just 300 Steps to the purest, whitest, softest sand on the Island. Our area of the Island has **not** had beach renourishments, so it is still soft powdery sand--not grainy or shelly. The beaches of Anna Maria are famous and are the heart and soul of this quaint Old Florida Island.

Our home is a short walk to all major places IN Anna Maria including the Island Players live theater, the Sandbar Restaurant, Dips Ice Cream Shop (best ice cream on the planet), Ginny and Jayne's, Harry's Grill, Bortells, the City Pier and Restaurant, Rod and Reel Pier and restaurant, and all of the new shops and cafes on Pine Avenue... including the now world famous Donut Experiment!

The FREE trolley/bus service runs about every twenty minutes and will take you the length of the island and beyond. Plus, the Monkey Buses are running door step to door step for tips. You can't ask for a better location.

Cable TV, Free Long Distance (within 48 states), FAST internet access, streaming HDTVs, and a Family Room that will seat the entire family make this a very comfortable place to call home for your vacations.

Also note: If you have children who will stay with you or visit during your stay and IF your kids would like to meet and hang out with new friends, please note that we live next door and have three children (boy16, girl15, boy13) who love to meet new friends from all over the world. We would never infringe upon your family time, but if desired, your kids would have built-in respectful/honoring/integrity based friends during your stay and beyond.

We provide a variety of beach items, including beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, floating tubes, and other misc -- use at own risk.

We could drone on and on and on, but real estate is about Location, Location, Location... and pictures are worth a thousand words. Take a look... then book.

Thank you for considering our vacation rental!

Be Blessed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were looking for a quiet, private, place close to the beach (can't afford ON the beach) for a quick get-a-away. This place was perfect. The rate was comparable to what we used to pay in 2008/9/10 when we went to AMI--a very good deal. As stated in the listing, the home is "not the Ritz", but it was very nice and extremely clean, which we really appreciate. The dock next to the pond was so peaceful and relaxing watching the sunrise and feeding the birds while fish jumped almost non-stop. We didn't meet the iquana, but did make great friends with a huge heron. The beach stuff was in good shape, but the wagon died while we were there. That was not a problem as the beach is really close.



Thank you also Floyd for helping with our computer needs and printing out all the paperwork for our business and our boarding passes. You really saved the day.



We will be back and can't wait to see the new pool next year. It looks awesome.



Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Right location, right price!

  • 4 of 5

My 4 adult children and I stayed in this duplex July 11-18 2015. This was our first time staying on the island and it was a beautiful, quiet place to have a family vacation. We went to the beach and the donut shop every day and were pleased that both were within walking distance. The duplex had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and we were thankful that so many beach items were available to use. All five of us slept comfortably and it was nice to have the washer and dryer available. I didn't rate this 5 star as the duplex in is need of a little updating which I understand will happen soon. We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay so we could enjoy all the things the island had to offer and this was perfect.

Property was ok HOWEVER not so sure about integrity of landlord

  • 1 of 5

I put up a refundable deposit. It was taken out of my account on 1/26/16. My stay was 3/3 to 3/6. Today is 5/19/16. My deposit still has not been returned. I previously contacted owner on 3 occasions - once through VRBO, once left message on phone and once text on his phone. He finally sent a text back that deposit would be returned 30 to 60 days after stay. I did not remember reading this in the contract. I'm now 60 days past stay and still no refund. I sent a one more text on 5/14 requesting my deposit back and as of 5/19 he has not responded. I had previously read a poor review on him because of not returning refund and he stated it was an oversight so I gave him the benefit of the doubt. The location was great, close to beach and trolly stop, accommodation was ok, theme was cute but there was obvious wear on the unit, blinds were torn up by a previous renter and unable to completely lower them in dining area. He would get a much higher rating if there had not already been comments about return of deposit and I was not also having doubts about getting my deposit back. Marsha Hill

This is a very comfortable and adorable 2 bedroom upstairs cottage-like apartment in a wonderful location near the beach on Anna Maria Island. We very much enjoyed our stay here!

House was comfortable and clean. Will be even more appealing when the pool and sunroom are added. Floyd was more than accommodating and helpful!

A very nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We thought the place looked much better than the pictures. The views of the pond were lovely from the bedrooms and living room. My father was very impressed with the quality of the HD tv and enjoyed keeping up with his favourite sports teams during our stay.

There are a number of restaurants located a short walk away, and the trolley service for everything else. You really don't need to use your car while on the island.

The local streets were charming for walks. Of course, the beach is lovely.

Floyd was very helpful when one of our party encountered medical problems during our visit and quickly provided us with a printout with 2 recommended walk-in clinics in the vicinity.

Our dog was warmly welcomed. One caution I would have for pet owners, however, is that there are a lot of sticky burrs in grass in the area (at least in October). Also, a lot of the Anna Maria Island restaurants don't allow dogs on their outdoor patios.
