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.

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!
We had a perfect Sisters-Daughters-Nieces-Cousins vacation and a lot of it being perfect was due to the great place we stayed. We rented the top and bottom units so everyone could be together. Both units are spacious and really nice. Everything we needed was there. The location is excellent. You can walk to the beach with a nice path going down. Plus it is only a short distance to walk to the trolley pickup to go shopping, eating, or just to see the Island. No need to bring beach towels, chairs, or even a cooler - all was located at the house for us to use. Including a wagon which made taking items to the beach really easy. Although we did not have any younger children the units had beach toys and inside toys. The owners are super nice, and everyone on the Island is extremely friendly. It is a great place for a vacation and we highly recommend it. We are already planning our next summers vacation and are going to rent these units.
Thank you we loved it.
The property was in great shape and very clean. The view to the beach was outstanding, I love how my floor had its own entrance/exit. It had all the kitchen utensils, bathrooms were stocked with towels & toilet paper. Also in the shed it was stocked with umbrellas, beach chairs, toys for the kids, a bicycle and there was a bar-b-q. There is also a washer and dryer on the property. Great house, would definitely return and recommend.
We were looking for a few days relaxation after a hectic "tourist" schedule across Florida, and we could not have chosen better that Seaside Sanctuary. From the initial contact with Stephanie through the arrival at the immaculate and beautifully presented accomodation to our eventual departure the whole experience could not have been better.
The accomodation includes many thoughtful features including washing machine, BBQ and a shed full of "stuff you might need on holiday". The location was quiet, with of course the real bonus being that you go out the front, turn left and in 1 minute you are on the beach and 3 minutes in the sea! That means that after a swim you can walk back to the apartment for a shower, which is great. Effective air conditioning meant that the typical 90F/32C, high humidity outside could be controlled when inside. The balcony was perfect for breakfast overlooking the sea before the temperature began to rise.
The beach was without doubt the best we have visited - miles of pure white sand that does not get too hot to walk on, a gently sloping shore and Gulf water which was a blood heat! And the sunsets!! Extraordinarily beautiful.
The north end of Anna Maria retains that timeless, relaxing feel and we hope that it remains that way and is not over-developed.
It is difficult to think how any aspect of this accommodation could be improved and we are already trying to work out how soon we can return!
We really enjoyed Seaside Sanctuary. It was very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay at the beach. We had a great view of the ocean. The area was quiet, peaceful, and uncrowded. Really enjoyed the Donut Experiment and Poppos which were within easy walking distance. Customer service was great. We certainly would stay here again.
