About Michelle Laade

We relocated here to Anna Maria Island 19 years ago from Michigan. We now enjoy raising our family here in this quaint coastal community. We are business owners locally, my husband has his own painting and remodeling company. In addition to running our vacation rental I am a successful Realtor on Anna Maria Island helping to create a lifestyle for my customers so they too can enjoy our amazing tropical sunsets and be a part of a small quaint coastal community. I also teach an Art Enrichment program at my daughters local school here on the island. We also find time to enjoy the beach and watch a few sunsets.

Michelle Laade purchased this villa in 2004

Why Michelle Laade chose Anna Maria

We chose this property because of its charm and location. Since we live and work on the island, we knew we could own and operate our very own vacation rental on Anna Maria Island. We also knew that it was a sound investment for ourselves and enjoy being able to share a little bit of this paradise we have found with everyone.

What makes this villa unique

The property is unique in its location. Sitting at the historic north end of Anna Maria. We are in the heart of the village of Anna Maria just steps away from Pine Ave. shopping and dining district. You are literally at the best end of the island and walking distance from everything local that you would want to enjoy and experience. Although having a vehicle is nice it is not necessary as there is a trolley that runs north and south on the island to all the necessary conveniences the island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

By far this was the best vacation we have ever had. Thank you to Jeff and Michelle for giving our family just what we needed. A great affordable place that was clean, fully stocked with everything we needed and in a great location. If you are looking for a quaint , clean, and very affordable place to relax at the beach and walk around the heart of the village of Anna Maria, day or night this is the place for you. Simple and perfect not fancy but just what we wanted. Jeff and Michelle are wonderful, responsive , and always pleasant to work with. Thank you and we will return.

My family has been vacationing at AMI for years, and this is the only rental unit that we consistently rebook over and over. It is always spotlessly clean and is well-equipped for our needs. When we walk in the door, it truly feels like we have returned to our own cozy beach cottage The three-bedroom unit is ideal for couples and small families. It has just enough room for gathering together while also allowing space to have a little privacy. The home is just wonderful in and of itself, but the location makes it absolutely fabulous! It is close to everything but off the main drag which can be heavily traveled and noisy at times. Once you drive up, you never have to get back in a vehicle unless you just want to take a drive. It is just off Pine Avenue so many of the island’s hot spots are within walking distance including great restaurants and boutiques. You can easily be first in line at the doughnut shop in the mornings! The beach is an easy walk as well, and the owners provide a selection of beach goodies for renters including a wagon to haul everything to the white sandy shore! Michelle and Jeff have been awesome to work with over the years! Though we have never experienced any issues, we can rest a little easier knowing that the owners are nearby to handle matters that may arise. I can honestly say that I intend to make this villa my home away from home as often as I can- and that is not nearly enough!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation spot if your looking for relaxation. Extremely clean, has everything you need to make you feel like your at home, just steps away from the beach and local stores and restaurants. Short drive to publix and other beaches. 20 to 30 minutes to Bradenton or Sarasota.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property in a beautiful community - two short blocks to the gulf, a short walk to the bay, shops and restaurants. The cottage is immaculate, exactly as pictured, and Michelle, the owner, is wonderful. The only complaint I have is that our stay was too short - but whose fault is that???!!! I hope to return for another longer stay in the not too distant future.

Perfect Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

My family has raved about this little beach bungalow for years and I finally got to stay in it myself this summer. The house is conveniently located (just a short walk/bike ride) to the shops and eateries on Pine Avenue and Spring Street, and just across the street from the beach, making for excellent sunset photos! The house is fully furnished and stocked with linens and dishes. And if you hadn't told me there was a family staying on the other side of the house while we were there ... I don't think I'd have noticed. Well sound-proofed, in other words. The patios are great if you have to do a little bit of work while on vacation, so you're able to sit outside and plug in your computer or tablet and enjoy the sun.

This lovely duplex is now our beach home away from home. The location is ideal - convenient to shopping & dining, just a short walk to the pristine beach in one direction, the city pier in the other. The home is tastefully & comfortably furnished & decorated - always clean & inviting. Nice front patio area & backyard veranda off master. We lack for nothing while we're here & it's now our first choice for our girl's getaways.

Tops in location, cleanliness, customer service!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our trip to Anna Maria Island where we stayed at the Northshore Beach House. This is my third stay at this property and I am returning again in October for another Girls' Getaway. Can't say enough about this place. Even though we do not rent a car for the trip, the location is so prime that we don't need one. The ease of a short walk to the beach, Pine Street, and the Free Trolley Stop make it very relaxing. The unit is clean and well-maintained with a cozy outdoor space that is conducive to laid back morning coffee and evening cocktails. To top it off the owners make the experience of renting a pleasurable one.
