Originally from Louisiana now Living in England, I spent my summers on Crescent Beach, Siesta Key. Anna Maria reminds me of Siesta Key when there were only private homes on Crescent Beach before any high rise buildings.
Ann Chappell purchased this house in 2008
The Gulf Coast's white sand beaches are highly-regarded and known worldwide for their beauty. Anna Maria is unique because it is not built-up like many other areas of Florida. It is old Florida, not some new area trying to be old Florida! It is relaxed and friendly. We chose the house because it is on the canal allowing access to various water activities and yet is 200 yards to the beach.
If you want a relaxing vacation, you can choose to never leave the house and have a wonderful time swimming, fishing and enjoying the view. You can walk to most restaurants in the area or take the free trolley.
If you want an active vacation, you can jet ski, water ski, sail, parasail, kayak, deep sea fish, bike, golf, swim, horseback ride, tennis, shuffleboard, paddle surf all within 5 miles of the house. You can go further a field for theatre (Sarasota)or theme parks (Busch Gardens in Tampa).
If you have to work while on vacation, the house is fully equipped with a computer, fax/scanner/printer, and high speed wireless broadband. The post office is within walking distance if you need to send items. Free phone service is provided and includes low cost international service as well.
Your pictures don't do it justice. The house was just perfect for our family. The kitchen was stocked with the best of appliances, pots, dishes, etc. even a grill outside. The little ones really enjoyed the shelf in the pool. It made supervising them so much easier, and not having to lug beach towels, sand toys, even beach chairs was a huge help. The beach was beautiful and we rented kayaks and it was great having the canal right in our backyard. Thanks for a wonderful week of sun and fun.
This was the 5th year in a row that our family has stayed at C-View and we loved coming back. Communication with the owner (Ann) is a pleasure and the contact/property manager on the island (Erin) is always prompt and friendly if little issues come up. We arrived to baked cookies and an assortment of soft drinks, beer and wine in the house. The house is wonderful in terms of location to one of the best beach access points on the island (about 2 blocks away), and we have come to appreciate the beach wagon, beach chairs and beach towels that are provided with the rental. We have stayed at many rental properties on Anna Maria island, but once we stayed here, we have kept coming back. The kitchen is well stocked with quality dishes and cooking utensils, and the mattresses on the beds are comfortable - not always the case in rental properties. The pool is wonderful after a day on the beach and is larger than many of the pools at single-family homes on the island. The pier out back is a great spot to sit in the morning or late day. We had manatee come to visit several times during our stay and we launched our kayak off the pier for nice paddles through the canals. We hope to return again on our next trip to Anna Maria Island.
We enjoyed all of the extras furnished by Ann. The welcome gift basket was a big hit, laundry supplies, bathroom supplies, soaps and cleaners for kitchen, beach towels, 4 nice beach chairs, a wagon to carry "stuff" to the beach, and pool toys, all included. The kitchen is well furnished with plenty of non-breakable glasses and plates plus pottery dishes and real glasses. We liked the 3 different sleeping areas that included the 3 bathrooms, plenty of parking. It is a longer walk to the beach that we would like, but it was doable. There are plenty of chairs, but a card table would be a nice addition just for games.
The week was perfect for our family, no rain, and beautiful sunsets! Anna Maria Island is my favorite of all beach areas! We all highly recommend C-View! Thank you for a great week!
We found this lovely home for our 4th visit to AMI, and had a wonderful family vacation! Anna Maria Island is our favorite place on earth, and we found this home to be located in a quiet area on the Northern end of the island. The location was one of our favorite parts about this home! You have a very short and easy walk to the beach - no busy streets, yet you are located on a canal - wonderful place to have your morning coffee, and still located within walking distance to Pine Ave - great place to get a box of doughnuts (the Doughnut Experiment) or a burrito for lunch (Poppo's) YUM!!
We stayed here with our 4 children, my parent's, and my two adult brothers -who are disabled. We were pleased to find the home very accessible for my brothers mobility scooters. We brought our short portable ramp for the one small step out the front and back door. The scooters could move around the house easily and my brothers liked that they were able to close a sliding door by their bedrooms for more privacy!
The home was spotless upon arrival, and very well stocked. The kitchen even contained utensils that I'd now like to buy for my home! We also loved that there were cleaning supplies in the house ( as we had to buy counter cleaner and ask the rental company to bring a boom and dustpan at the last home we stayed at ) If you are going to stay in a home for a week, you are surely going to need to sweep sand and clean counters....we loved that this home was ready for that, and my mom and I enjoyed taking a time each morning to keep the home tidy!
We had a rain day and were so pleased with all of the kids toys / games / books at the home! My kids loved getting out the puzzles, coloring books, and kids books! Made our rain day fun!
The landscaping was so tropical and the outdoor furniture was high quality. The pool was the perfect size and the slash deck made pool time with a two year old relaxing! No length of time at Anna Maria is ever long enough, but I guess it's good to leave a vacation wanting more! We'd love to return to this relaxing home someday!
We stayed at C View last week of April 2016, the property was spotless and very comfortable.
The pool was a good size to swim in and the dock had a couple of seats to sit on in the shade with a terrific view.
The welcome pack was a nice touch too!
The location was excellent, as we like the north end of the island best - it is much quieter there. The beautiful Beach is less than 5 minutes walk away with us walking at a slow pace in the sun!
We walked to the Sandbar 15 mins and Rod and Reel pier about 8 mins, which was great so we could have a drink! - enjoyed both locations.
We also hired bikes and toured the island - top end by Bean Pointe really quiet, but even by Holmes beach and Bradenton Beach where it was busier the traffic were very considerate and give you plenty of room and time - there are also bike lanes too.
Overall we had a fantastic time and did not want to come home.
We would highly recommend a holiday at C View.

We have just got home from C View, we were a family of 4 we also went with another family of 4. The house was lovely with all you need iit is very well equipped, and very welcoming, we enjoyed it so much that we wanted to book again but it is full, I have to say that the whole of Anna Marie is a lovely place to be with your family as it is so safe,and there is so much to do, C View was wonderful in every way, I would highly recommend this home, we will be going back soon.
Our family of eight adults and an infant enjoyed a wonderful week in this home.
The nearby beaches are beautiful, three family members went fly fishing, we rented bikes and kayaks.
My husband and I were kayaking on the canals and we were 15 feet from a manatee - what a fun time.
The island is easy and fun to bike around.
The only statement to say is the traffic can be difficult at times but that would not stop us from visiting again.
We have stayed at many rental homes in Florida and this home is very comfortable.
On our departure, a manatee was right in the canal by this property's dock.
Just a beautiful time.
