This Season we have just incorporated free Wi-Fi Internet access and full Cable. We have yet to use much of any of it, and don't believe you will either! More than likely you will spend your time either by strolling white powder sand beach outside the back door, sitting by the pool under a large palm clearing your mind, or just reading a book on the screened porch to the sound of lapping waves.
It is very simple to describe the location of this 1st floor, 2-bedroom condominium home - Directly on the Gulf of Mexico, 25 steps to the beach, with an angled gulf view from the cozy lanai.Updated, with new furniture and decor Sept 2013 in a 'Tommy Bahama' style. You'll love the peaceful, relaxing new look we've created. There is not a high rise in sight, just normal quaint homes, peeking through tropical tree lines.
The condo is fully furnished and stocked as our second home, we maintain everything with updated decor, appliances, extremely comfortable seating, and bedding. You will arrive to complete comfort and all the essentials needed for everyday life in this beach front hideaway. You will have all the kitchenware if you enjoy cooking, or you may use our scrapbook to find the best of island cuisine.
Going to beach is very simple . Just count the steps 25. See the water and hear it.. If you forget something in the condo it's no hassle to go back.. Do not miss the sunset!
We have loved our beach home for the 13th year now! We would love to welcome you into our home for your next vacation. Don't forget to sign our guest book when you get there!!
From our family to
Owner purchased this condo in 2002
We asked the Realtor for three things: LOCATION, LOCATION, AND LOCATION. He responded with FIRST FLOOR, DIRECT BEACH FRONT, AND A 3 MINUTE WALK TO GROCERIES. We purchased the next day after seeing how perfect the place had been kept and the
spaciousness for four people available. The condo is
surrounded in tropical privacy and has a pool you can
grill out and simultaneously watch sunsets. We are so
happy to share this with others, from our family to yours
My husband and I and two daughters spent the most relaxing and enjoyable week at this lovely condo in June. The condo was clean, decorated beautifully and everything was in great order. The pool at the complex was large and well maintained and most days we were the only guests that were there swimming. The area was so peaceful and quiet and relaxing but still close to everything. Walking out the door just a few steps to one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida was such a treat! We were up every morning at sunrise to walk the beach and collect shells and talk to the "turtle team" that was looking for new turtle nests to mark. The water was amazing-and the sunsets were spectacular. We did not miss a single evening-grabbed our beach chairs and a cold drink and headed out to enjoy the view. It was our first trip to Anna Maria Island and we were happy to see that it was more like "old Florida"-ecclectic little beach shops, ice cream parlors, great restaurants a free trolley to get all around the island and so clean! Walking on the City Pier and having a bowl of the best lobster bisque at the restaurant that I have ever tasted was awesome. We actually went back twice. The people are friendly and welcoming and offer great tips for whatever you might enjoy doing. We booked a boat ride/Eco tour and snorkeling trip just off of the Island while we were there also- highly recommend. We saw dolphins and manatees and snorkeled on a sand bar where we found sand dollars, sea urchins and an assortment of living creatures (all of which we enjoyed looking at and returning unharmed). What a great adventures for us land locked northwesterners! Leaving was the only part we did not enjoy. It was our first trip to the island but will definitely not be our last. Our entire family agreed that this was the best vacation we have ever had.
My daughters, sister and I had a wonderful time staying in this fully equipped condo just steps from the beach. Beautifully decorated and amply supplied, the condo was a perfect home away from home. My daughters voted this the "best place we have stayed in Florida" and have requested this specific condo and location for our next visit. The central location on the island makes it easy to get to anywhere else, the beach is beautiful here, and an easy walking distrance to a shopping center with an ice cream shop is especially appealing. While our group didn't require beach toys we noticed that there were plenty available for those families with younger children. The location made quick trips from the beach for lunch or time out of the sun very easy. We also enjoyed the complex's pool every day. This is a wonderful place to stay - you won't be disappointed!
Totally delightful stay! Loved your condo and all your special touches in your decorating. Your place was very comfy and cozy, made me feel right at home. Kitchen was wonderfully stocked with cooking utensils. Thank you for the binder listing all the restaurants in the area, was very helpful. Very clean, neat and tidy. I can't wait to come back again!! Only steps and you are on the beach looking out over the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. I could not get over all the dolphins that I saw out in the water. I would recommend this condo in a heartbeat!!!
Staying in your home this week was truly a pleasure. I could never have imagined a more beautiful and private beach. The location was awesome 1st floor direct gulf front. We loved the well appointed décor in the home, and the included beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. Perfect! Please let me know if you ever consider selling! We will keep coming back to stay for years to come! 5 out of 5 Stars!
The pictures don't show the houses blocking the Gulf view from the living room. A couch in the living room and dining room chairs had ill fitting slip covers. The living room and dining room furniture looked like they came from Goodwill. The minuscule lanai had a torn screen and a filthy dirty rotting wooden chair. The guest bathroom was less than tiny. The AC was so loud it could wake up the dead. I do not recommend this property.
We had a wonderful time here - we have small children, and have stayed in many places on AMI, and this is our new favorite. It was immaculately clean (which is harder to find than you may think) and well stocked. The pool was was one of the biggest that we have seen yet, and there was rarely anyone there aside from our group (we traveled with another family that stayed in a different unit). The sand was literally steps away, and the beach was empty - we could see crowds in both directions, but we had our little stretch basically to ourselves. The boogie boards, chairs, and umbrella were nice to have access to, and we safely stored our beach gear on the screened porch at night. We had plenty of dishes and cooking supplies (cookie sheet, blender, etc) on hand. The beds were comfy and the closet space was ample, so we weren't tripping over all of our luggage and "gear" that is necessary with small children! Thanks so much - we will certainly be back!
Just a three minute walk to the wonderfully tucked away and hidden shopping center for all your shopping needs! It includes Walgreens, Publix, Salon/SPA, and the best pizza on the entire planet (see scrapbook when you arrive). In front of this shopping center is the most efficient and stylish trolley we have ever seen. You can get on-board and be taken anywhere on the island, with stops to pick you up every 30 minutes! There truly is very little need for a vehicle in this ideal location.
