This Anna Maria Island waterfront house is located on a large 60 ft wide deep water canal and is within a short walking distance to the beautiful white sand beaches that the island is known for. Bring your boat (or boats) and moor it to the 112 ft seawall that is behind the house and enjoy deep water access to Tampa Bay and nearby Gulf of Mexico. If you do not have a boat that is OK, there are several places you can fish from land including the canal behind the house.
Within walking distance to the historic Anna Maria City Pier or the Rod and Reel Pier where you can fish or simply enjoy a good meal with a breath taking view of Tampa Bay and the Sun Shine Skyway Bridge. Also within walking distance are several local shops, restaurants, and bars. There is a free trolley available that runs thought-out the island from 6 am-11 pm. The free trolley stops every 4-5 blocks at designated benches along Gulf Drive. There is a stop about a block away from the house.
We have kayaks, beach chairs, and beach toys for your use.
The house is located on the North side of the island at 227 Willow Ave, Anna Maria, Florida

Short walk to the beach, nice being able to use beach chairs & wagon to get there. Our boys enjoyed fishing in the canal. Very comfortable home. Had everything we needed.
We really enjoyed our stay at the canal house! There were five adults (myself, my boyfriend, my two daughters, my son-in -law) and my two year old grandson and there was plenty of room for all of us! We loved the fact that there was a wagon to take our grandson to the beach along with beach toys and chairs. The dock was a great spot for my boyfriend and grandson to sit and fish, wonderful memories were made those 3 fun days. The house was well stocked with anything you could want or need!
My family enjoyed the inviting atmosphere of the house. There was enough room for all of us and the young girls really enjoyed the porch area. They played games at the small table. There was plenty of beach toys to keep them busy at the beach. We had fun with the kayak in the Gulf. There are plenty of near by restaurants within walking distance. I would recommend staying at this beach house.
Titis is a great house for a small family. We had plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 children! We had fun fishing out of the bay and using the beach toys the house provided. It is a short walk to the beach and only a walk away from food! We met the owners while we were there and they gave us great advise on where to go and eat. We also met the housekeepers and they were so nice and told us places we had to visit! We will use this house again if we go back to the island!
The pictures don't do this place justice. There's a king bed in one bedroom, a full bed and a twin bed in the other, and then another full bed situation and a twin day bed in the Florida room. Plus two full baths. Our teenager had her own "suite"! Great location: 2 minute walk to Gulf Dr and Ginny's & Jane E's, another half block to the gulf beach, 5 minute walk to The Donuts Experiment and Poppo's Tacos. Having canal access was nice with provided kayaks, it's a 5 minute paddle to Bimini Bay (dolphins!) and another 5 or 10 to Tampa Bay. We're all a little heartbroken that the place is already booked for our AMI dates in 2016.
