Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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, BOSE BLUETOOTH audio system, 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!

About Stephanie

Three things I cannot live without; coffee, wine and chocolate. My hobbies include exercise (spinning and body pump are my favorites), playing the piano and spending time with my family. Married with two wonderful children. Originally from Stillwater, MN, I vacationed in Anna Maria for many years before making it my adopted hometown. As a former flight attendant, I have been to exotic beaches all over the world. I can honestly say that I've never seen a nicer beach than the one right here in Anna Maria.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2004

Why Stephanie chose Anna Maria

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.

That Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

It is that place where you want to linger and not leave…..ever. The quieter end of Anna Maria with a beautiful beach just a short walk up the path and those perfect sunsets over the Gulf. The upper floor is a total sanctuary and there is not one creature comfort that Stephanie did not think of. It was our pleasure too that we had an opportunity to meet Stephanie at the house. We loved reading the guest book entries and in the future we would like to think of this special place as our beach house too.

Great location, fresh decor, comfortable and clean unit

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice stay in this unit as a family of 4. The unit is comfortable and clean, nice fresh decor and furnishings, good location only a short walk to the beach and also to the amenities on Pine. Stephanie was easy to work with through the booking process and responsive on any questions I had, I would happily book this rental again.

Great spot to Relax!

  • 5 of 5

Peace & Salt air! Our family of 4 had a great week. Extremely convenient location to walk to the beach or to local shops & restaurants. Very helpful that the owners are willing to share beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. We would definitely stay here again!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect beach home just steps from the gulf. We could not have asked for a better vacation.

Two baths and the washer and dryer came in handy for a family of 5.

The deck is large and the view is amazing.

It rained one day and we were perfectly happy and cozy inside. It's comfy and feels like home.

The path to the beach is right outside and Stephanie has chairs, umbrellas, toys and rafts.

There is a grill available in the back and the publix is a short drive away.

Pine avenue with great little shops, coffee, pizza, etc. is a short, enjoyable walk.

Close to Bayfront park, Rod and Reel Pier and a waterfront restaurant opposite another pier this home is truly in a great location. My family will definitely be back! Thanks Stephanie!

We loved the beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location on the north end of the island. We could walk to restaurants, to the trolley that will take you through the island, and it is only steps to the beach. The house had everything we needed and was clean. Looking forward to staying here again in the future.
