About Anna Maria Island:

What was once a best-kept secret among Florida day-trippers, Anna Maria Island, has always been known for its sugar-white coastline, emerald Gulf waters and quaint business districts. Today, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers.

Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset on the Gulf of Mexico without ever having to leave the island. And, unlike other popular Florida cities with their theme parks and water slides, there are no lines on Anna Maria Island, this is old school Florida.

You can always find so much to do on Anna Maria Island, located on the Gulf Coast of Florida with easy access from Tampa and Sarasota Airports.

Anna Maria Island is broken up into 3 Cities - Bradenton Beach (for the "Party Hardy/Lively Crowd"), Holmes Beach and Anna Maria (More residential/Neighborhood feel), and can be toured by the free Trolley!

About Susan

We are full time residents of the Savannah GA area, and when our family vacationed on Anna Maria it was time to own a little piece of paradise. We plan to retire here!

Susan purchased this house in 2010

Why Susan chose Anna Maria Island

After falling in love with Anna Maria Island, just couldn't wait to buy our own piece of paradise. This property is perfect for friends and family. We enjoy sharing my beach home with family and friends, both old and new. We look forward to having you as my guests.

What makes this house unique

In less than 5 minutes you can step out our door and plant your feet in the sugar white sand of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Shops are close by and the neighborhood is kid friendly with a lot of warm and friendly neighbors.

A Fabulous Find!!

  • 5 of 5

This is absolutely the best rental we have stayed in on AMI so far! We have visited other properties during our 4 years of visiting the island and this is the most quiet and private we have yet to visit. The pool and the yard area, patio and sunning area are all behind a 6' fence so it is absolutely private! There are none of those 3 story houses on the street or around the house so there is complete privacy. This was important to us since it was quite the opposite last year. We enjoyed our 2 week stay. The home is just perfect, nothing was needed and in excellent condition. Its not a 5000 sq ft mansion, but it is more than comfortable and suited our 2 week stay perfectly for 5 people. Nicely appointed with everything you need from beach chairs to silverware! We didn't lack for anything. We would definitely stay here again, now that we have found this home. This was the perfect beach cottage for us!

This charming home was even better in person.

  • 5 of 5

I can't wait to go back to this charming home. We found it extremely clean and cozy. A big bonus was the amount of dishes and even spices. We enjoyed cooking and eating out by the pool. Did I say salt water pool! That was a wonderful surprise! The pool guy showed up the very first day so it wad nice and clean too. Having free laundry available was so helpful. Many stores and resturants in walking distance. We truly enjoyed the peaceful nights. No worries of loud party's. The short walk down the street to the beach to watch the sunset was a perfect way to end the day. Cant wait to come back!!!

Perfect Pool Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The rental was even more charming than we imagined. The home is very clean, all the amenities that we wanted including a washer and dryer. The two full bathrooms are quite convenient. The beach is a 5 minute walk down 50th street. The free trolly stop is a 1 minute walk. We spent most of our time in the pool. Thank you for having us.

Spring Break 2017

  • 4 of 5

Anna Marie Island is a beautiful area with very nice beaches. The island consists mainly of homes and rental homes, no high rises. There are pockets of restaurants and retail shops in different areas on the island. Our group of 4 enjoyed our stay. The island was much bigger than we imagined, the free trolley was convenient. This 3BR, 2 BA home and pool area is very nice, the home is nicely decorated, very clean, the kitchen had everything we needed. We used the cart and beach chairs every day. The home is located within a short walk to the beach and shops, most of our week it was very warm, windy with 4 to 6 ft waves, we loved the beach, when swimming be sure to use caution and respect the power of the gulf. We recommend buying some fish at the nearby fresh fish market and visiting the following restaurants: Sand Bar with tables right on the beach, Skinny's a burger place and the Ugly Grouper, a short walk to the north. This house has two units, a small unit with entry from the front door (street side), the entry to this rental unit is from the side of the house, the pool area. The person occupying the other unit was very quiet and did not bother our group. The master bathroom is very nice but it is small. We would definitely come back.

a CHARM lost in time

  • 5 of 5

Everything that Susan and Larry say about Beach Charm is real. The pictures are so accurate and the serenity of this little cottage is beautiful. From the outset Susan helped us booking and went out of her way to make us feel so welcome. We loved every minute of our stay from Holmes Beach, trolley bus, shops, great restaurants (look at Susan and Larry's recommendations), wildlife and the comfort of the cottage. We also found it amusing watching the dancing lizards around the pool. Everything was spotless and couldn't fault a thing. A dream cottage with great facilities. We will be back for sure!!
