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

We rented the house and it is really convenience to everything. Of course, Anna Maria Island is not all that big. The house is a little outdated but has plenty of space to spread out. When we first enter the house, it has a musty odor of not having a lived in smell. The kitchen is really outdated but functional. It has no dishwasher. The bathrooms are clean but one of the bathrooms have a rubber mat so I encourage you to not lift up the mat, you will get nauseated. The mat needs to go. It is really gross underneath. I don't know why it is there. The floor is terrazzo and needs updating too. There were few dead cockroaches and ants crawling around. So I don't think the place is really clean to the standards for rentals. We do enjoy the canal and canoe that is available for guests.
Close to every thing, super clean, kitchen has every thing you need, lots of sitting room, fish from the yard. Walk to every where. Trolly is very.close. one word, perfect.
This property was everything we could ask for. I would recommend for anyone looking for a rental. We pulled the boat right up to the house dock and had access to the open waterways. Very clean and professional. We will definitely be back next year.
This house has so many wonderful features! Being on the canal was wonderful, the home itself is very large and very spacious. It was set up with any thing that we needed, tools, beach supplies, cooking utensils, Linens, you name it!
It is a very short walk to the beach which is awesome! There are many restaurants right nearby, we truly enjoyed our stay and will be back for sure!
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!
