About Mike Norman Realty

I was born and raised on Anna Maria Island. In fact, Holmes Beach was named after my Grandfather. We own several properties that we rent out seasonally and annually. We live in Holmes Beach. I am married to a Veterinarian and have 3 boys.

Mike Norman Realty purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Mike Norman Realty chose Anna Maria Island

I chose to purchase this vacation rental property because I love the location and the fact that is is located on the water.

What makes this apartment unique

The beaches are the best Anna Maria has to offer with squeaky white sand and sea oats and sand dunes. The natural canal system through Lake Lavista that the property is located on is beautiful for kayaking and sightseeing.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Just the facts:

1) Great location, only a few minutes from the beach!

2) The unit was so clean you could have eaten off the floor.

3) The patio was very nice and private!

4) The kitchen had all the essential items, including a blender!

5) Location was only minutes from all of the local shops and restaurants on Pine Ave.

6) Behind the unit was the canal, which was like having a back yard bayou. Very private and quiet!

7) Last and certainly not least, the price was a steal for the value received.

The property looked exactly as listed, was clean, cozy, inviting, and comfortable! Plenty of bath towels as well as beach towels were provided. We enjoyed sitting outside on the side deck. It was also nice to have a washer & dryer. The beach cottage is part of a duplex (there are 2 on the property) and is less than 2 blocks from the ocean. You cannot see or hear the ocean from inside the cottage, but you can see it from the street corner and it is within easy walking distance. There is an inlet behind the duplexes with a nice shaded dock to sit on (or fish from). The neighborhood was quiet. Most of the wedding festivities were on the North part of the island, which made where we stayed a perfect location! We were blocks away from The Sandbar Restaurant, which was wonderful! We were also near Pine Street where there are many unique shops and restaurants and near to Rod & Reel Pier as well as Anna Maria City Pier. We often stay in rental homes when traveling and our only negative comments were that the Queen mattress felt a bit uncomfortable to sleep on (we did not sleep on the twin bed, so I have no comment on that one), and we had to buy dish soap for the kitchen and hand soap for the bathroom. Other than those minor inconveniences, our stay was thoroughly enjoyable and quite romantic! Another plus, the owner was professional, kind, and quick to respond to e-mail and phone calls, which was much appreciated!

Cute little place

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a mini romantic getaway and this place was perfect. Great spot and we walked down to the Bar the Sandbar restaurant and a few other place. The pier in the backyard was great for day drinking and we watched the fish jump. The fish wouldn't eat our bread though lol. It rained a whole lot during the week before we arrived at the cottage which caused a lot of aunts to appear near the sinks which was a little annoying, but fun killing them. oh! And we walked to the beach every single morning, literally like 5 houses away from us. Great time, great time- and we watched the Breaking Bad season finale too in the living room :)

Great Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as pictured and described. Very cozy and clean, located on a quiet side street. Loved being on the north end of the island, with charming shops and restaurants. Easy access to the beach. We would definitely stay here again in the future!
