This is the CLEANEST AND BRIGHTEST vacation rental you will find on the island! This bungalow is the SECOND FLOOR UNIT of a beachfront duplex. (The 3 bedroom ground floor unit is available as VRBO #298525)
Welcome to paradise! ANNA MARIA ISLAND is the first of the barrier islands located along Florida's Gulf Coast. It is about 7 miles long and 1/2 a mile wide. It is known for beautiful beaches, breathtaking sunsets and a boat load of really nice people. The number one activity in the area is to DO NOTHING AND RELAX ON THE BEACH.
This charming BEACH HOUSE is tucked away on a VERY QUIET STREET in the sleepy north end of the island. Far away from traffic, crowds, and tourists who like to party. It is the 2ND HOUSE FROM THE BEACH with no roads to block access. If you open your bedroom window at night, the only sound will be the rolling surf on the beach. This is truly the BEST LOCATION on the Island.
Your front door is less than 1 minute from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. The sand is like POWDERED SUGAR. It never gets hot on your feet because it is 99% pure quartz. The water is warm and shallow. The fishing is excellent. The SANDBAR RESTAURANT is a 5 minute stroll down the beach.
The unit is light and bright with a multitude of windows showcasing BREATHTAKING GULF VIEWS. Everything has been recently updated in a coastal decor featuring hand painted starfish on the walls. Some of the key amenities include a 47' Flat Panel HIGH DEFINITION TV, SONY STEREO dual speaker docking station, PLAYSTATION 2, lightning fast WI FI INTERNET and a Stearns & Foster (firm) KING SIZE BED.
Please view our HIGH DEFINITION VIRTUAL TOUR, then call or email with any questions. Book early because the premium dates fill up fast. With its ultra premium location and brand new amenities, this is the BEST VALUE on the vacation rental market!

Originally from Minnesota, my husband and I moved to Anna Maria Island 10 years ago with our children to live the dream. That dream being, residing in a small beach community with pristine beaches and powdered sugar sand. Safe, quiet streets, and a great sense of community.
Stephanie purchased this house in 2004
We purchased this home 100% because of it's location. The view out of each west facing window is breathtaking. The property is located on a quiet dead end street and is only a few steps to one of the most pristine beaches in the world.

Seaside Sanctuary #1 (upstairs) was the perfect rental property for our two couples the first week in January. Modest yet comfortable finishes. Clean and tidy with pretty much anything and everything we needed. Unbeatable quiet location on the north end, just steps from the beach and featuring a rare view of the gulf from the deck. We slept with windows open to enjoy the sound of the waves. Stephanie is the most responsive VRBO owner/manager we have dealt with. Any text was answered within minutes, and our damage deposit was credited to our account 3 days after we left! An ideal location to walk or ride bikes to the shops and restaurants, or long beach walks around the point to the piers. A pleasant 5 minute stroll on the beach to the Sandbar restaurant. We would definitely stay here again... perhaps renting the downstairs as well for a larger group.
Exactly as described and exactly what we needed: a comfortable two-bedroom in a perfect location. Anna Maria is one of our favorite places, and Christmas was an opportunity to gather with our daughter, who lives in a less lovely part of Florida. The location --- truly just steps from the uncrowded beach --- is both exceptionally quiet and close to Anna Maria's small commercial area. We could easily walk from gulf to bay and back. The apartment is in good condition, with comfortable furniture and a well-equipped kitchen. The onsite laundry facilities were a nice bonus. We'll keep this one on our list of places to stay again.
What an amazing stay we had on Anna Maria Island in this special home! The location is perfect... you can walk to the beach and into town!! And both Stephanie and Mike were sooo helpful with local information as well as where to dine, play and explore. Their special beach storage area was full of chairs, rafts, coolers, towels and umbrellas! The unit was perfectly spotless, comfortable and well taken care of! You can tell they have pride and integrity with their rentals! They will be our first call for a booking on our next visit to AMI!
2nd visit- same as the first- great. location is close to beach, this year cooler, so we could sleep with windows open and hear the surf. Place has everything you could need. Stephanie was very accommodating to our needs. Thanks
Stephanie was great to rent from. The home was very clean and comfy. The views are great. The pictures don't do them justice. Extremely short walk to the beach. It was like having our own private beach. The island is quiet and so relaxing. We will definitely be returning.
Stephanie's house was the first time we ever rented a house. It will be a tough act to follow. The house was wonderful. Everything we needed was there! Just steps away from the beach. The description was 100% accurate. We can't wait to come back again!
