Coco-Nuts is owned by an eighth generation Floridian, who has always had a house on Florida's waters...and who prefers the Gulf Beaches and the quaint, quiet beaches of Anna Maria. There are many times we visit our home for pleasure and to make sure it is maintained for our family and guests.
Mary Jo Cancelmo purchased this house in 2008
This property was built and owned by a famous local sports commentator, who did many of his sports fishing news off the local Rod & Reel Pier. Its unique design is probably influenced by his son, who is a well-known Tampa architect. It is a corner lot and the beach access and beach is just across the road.
There are also 4 other beach accesses within a short walking distance - two being directly onto the Bean Point area. Our beach access leads to a wide white sandy beach. There are 3 Bean Point accesses on the northern tip. Ours is on the Gulf side. It is the widest and most deep. It is also the most private. The other two accesses are also only a short walk. The last of the three opens to the bay side.
Our property is the last road on the north end of the island but you can walk to the main street of Pine Ave in Anna Maria where you can catch a free trolley that will take you all over the island.
Since the owner also uses this property as often as time allows, Coco-nuts is constantly being up graded and maintained. Hurricane impact windows have been installed and appliances such as large screen TVs, TVs in all bedrooms, refrigerators, dishwashers, stoves are the newer models. Ceiling fans are throughout the house. Both a gas grill and charcoal grill are provided on the back patio.
Beach chairs, umbrellas, a small tent to provide shade for children are provided along with a sturdy beach cart.
The back courtyard is surrounded by a four foot seawall and gates. There are two areas gated so that pets from upstairs and downstairs can remain separated. The courtyard holds an umbrella/ patio table for six and other patio chairs. There is also an outdoor shower to wash the sand and salt off. The courtyard is accessed by the back kitchen doors and the garage door.
Location is right across from a beach access plus within walking distance of 3 other beach accesses. It is in the most private area of Anna Maria on the last expanse of the western Gulf Beach. Walk around the corner and you can be on Tampa Bay. This is the best area to fish from the shore, see the manatees, watch the dolphins swim by. It is within walking distance to the shops and restaurants on Anna Maria. You can catch the free trolley from 7AM to 11PM and go anywhere on the island!
Wow. We are looking back on our one-week stay at Coconuts as the best vacation of our life. The property exceeded our expectations in every aspect. It was spotlessly clean and located across the street from one of the very best beach access points. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with everything we needed. We felt completely at home which made it so much easier to just relax and enjoy the beach and everything that Anna Maria Island has to offer. We were in easy walking distance to restaurants, parks, playgrounds for the grandkids, and so much more. I cannot think of a single suggestion for the owner. There were even plenty of beach toys for the grandkids and a wagon to haul them to the beach. It was just perfect. We are already making plans to return for another week.
The house was so spacious. We had plenty of room & we were a party of 8. The master bedroom is huge. Bed was so comfortable. Home is so convenient to the beach & stores. We rode our bikes everywhere. Owners had plenty of beach towels to use which was nice. House was clean & stocked w/ plenty of linens. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. Outside area was nice for eating dinner. The kids loved the outdoor shower! The owner texted us to make sure everything was satisfactory. Great rental!
We loved our stay at Coconuts' upper level beach house. We felt totally at home and as if we were in the hospitality of a friend. We walked in to a bright and spacious place with lots of comfort for the whole family. The kitchen had all the basics covered. We traveled possibly 3 miles to a Publix to stock up on groceries for the week.
The beaches there are amazing. We had a short walk, across the street, to the beach access, which opened onto beautiful powdery white sand, gently rolling sand dunes and clear blue green water. The owner, Mary Jo, has provided beach towels, lounge chairs, a large umbrella, various beach toys and a cart to haul it all down to your chosen spot on an uncrowded beach.
The waters were warm and pretty shallow all the way out to the sand bar, maybe a couple hundred yards out. They can get choppy, but are not good for surfing. We did see several paddle boarders and kayakers. What I think we loved best, besides the seclusion of the beach was all the sea life we saw. There were dolphins, tarpon, sting rays, a manta ray, lots of schooling fish and groups of manatees we saw and got close to on 3 different occasions. Our kids collected clams, coquinas, sand dollars, and many various shells, coral and sea sponges. There were many turtle hatching areas on the beach, which did not hatch in the time we were there, but are ready to hatch any time and would have made a fantastic memory if they had.
The owner checked in on us a couple times through email during the week and gave us a lot of helpful information about the island and the restaurants in the area.
I can highly recommend Ginny and Jane E.s Cafe Bakery and Store. It's a one of a kind place with good food, great coffee, and a unique atmosphere and friendly staff. We were able to pick up sunglasses, flip flops and goggles from there and they have a lot of nice decorative pieces and furnishings created on the island. We also really enjoyed the Anna Maria Oyster Bar, which you have to actually go off the island for, but it is well worth it. It has a great, fun, family atmosphere, very friendly staff and the best food of any of the restaurants we went to. I can also recommend the Sand Bar restaurant which has the best setting, being right on the beach. You can be seated at your table dining on good food while digging your toes in the sand. I think they are a little over priced, but it's probably just due to the great location. We thought the Waterfront was overrated.
Coconuts was exactly as advertised--a delightfully quirky getaway spot on the quiet north end of Anna Maria. The owner could not have been nicer or more helpful--from our first correspondence through VRBO to her prompt return of my deposit after our visit. She was also on-site during most of our stay (she was in the downstairs unit) and had lots of great tips for places to eat and best beach spots.
We loved our time in Anna Maria. The unit is located in a perfect location to access the beach and to all of the shops and restaurants. We truly never got in our car and just rode our bikes all over the island. The owners were very responsive and made our visit as easy as possible. We highly recommend the rental and the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island. You won't be disappointed.
A Great get away, quiet friendly place away from home. This large 3 BR upstairs home has lots of room and comfort, and a large flat screen tv for the men. The house has all the kitchen equipment you need- a gas grille down stairs- towels, chairs and much more. You are a quick walk just across the street to the beautiful beach for sunrise and beautiful sunsets.
If cooking is not what you do on vacation their are many great places to eat. And lots of fun Shopping. Price is very reasonable. We had a great time and will be returning for many visits to come. Love that it is pet friendly too.
We had been going to Long Boat Key for over 30 years, but Anna Maria is our new best location!
Coconuts is located at the southern tip of Tampa Bay.and on the prestiguos, quiet, north end of AM Island. Accessible by 2 bridges from the east, SR 64 (Manatee Ave.) and Cortez Ave. bridge. South bridge of AM leads to Long Boat Key, St. Armands Key, Sarasota area. St. Armands is the Palm Beach/Worth Ave. of the west coast of FL. provides a bit of heaven to the shopaholic, great restaurants to the food-aholic, and quaint areas to people watch with a glass of wine or sangria from the famous Columbia restaurant.
Sarasota is the home of the Ringling Museum of Fine Arts and John Ringling's home, which is open to the public. Wenzel Music Hall offers an array of concerts by musical artists and groups from all over the world. Tyler Arboretum offers a paradise to botanical lovers.
Visitors to the small island (6 miles in length) find 3 towns...Bradenton Beach is the southermost,...more "touristy" with one main commercial area which dead ends into its city pier. The pier will have a new restaurant in January, a fourth Anna Maria Oyster Bar, one of our favorites. It also has a nice little jewelry shop and a crepery - perfect for late morning brunch Holmes Beach, the middle township, has three little shopping areas, the first of which houses a Publix, CVS & Walgreens, a hardware store, and several eateries and a Subway. Further out on the island on Marina, there is the Holmes Beach Shopping Center anchored by a hardware center, several gift shops, a resort ware shop Irene's( which we recommend). Off from there is a Mimi's cafe, a favorite among the locals) and a beer and wine shop around the corner bend. Further down North Gulf drive, you will find the Beach Bistro, which is excellent, but pricey and noisy.
The White Egret and Egret in Anna Maria is a decorator's dream. On down to the northern tip and Anna Maria. One main shopping street..Pine Ave. Salon Salon is great for your beauty needs., several boutiques, and six or more eateries... We recommend you try them all....the kids love Two Scoops and the Donut Shop. Adults love the Sand Bar, Ginny and Janies, Slims, and the Waterfront(pricey).
Pine Ave. dead ends into the City Pier..great fishing and a little restaurant up top for various fish specialties...medium price range.
Take a right and go to the dead end. You end up at Gallati's Marina...Walk among the docks and the Yachts. Eat sushi at the Marina.
Take a left at the dead end of Pine. Hand a right onto North Bay Blvd. You will come to Rotten Ralph's Restaurant and City Pier. You will also find a play park for the kids...right on the beach, complete with public facilities. Again good fishing and a great medium priced breakfast, lunch, & dining experience can be found on North Bay Blvd.(2 blocks from Coconuts)..everyone has to go at least once....and its walking distance from Coconuts as is all of Pine Ave. North Shore is the last street north before the Gulf....quiet and most sought after....join us for that "It's five o'clock somewhere" time....you will relax and soak in all that Florida used to be!
Free trolley runs the length of the island from Pine Ave. to Cocquina Park. Usually runs until 11pm. In addition you can catch another trolley for a minimal price and travel on down to St. Armands Key, the "Palm Beach/Worth Ave." of the west coast of Florida.
