About Eric Povey

Being beach lovers and enjoying the warmth of both the excellent weather and that of the people from this unique area ..... we take many walks along the unspoilt beaches that we love for their tranquility and local wildlife. We cannot wait for our return even after 10 years and our first breakfast at Rod and Reel to confirm we have

arrived at our home from home.. Over 25 years now since our first visit and our love affair with this beautiful island began which is just as strong today...

Eric Povey purchased this house in 2005

Why Eric Povey chose Anna Maria Island

After being in travel for over 40 years and travelling the world to numerous beautiful destinations we chose this fabulous island of Anna Maria and the North End in particular for our home away from home..After 10 glorious years of renting our Anna Maria home we welcome many return visitors each year which testifies to the attraction of both the property and the area we are situated..

What makes this house unique

We love the quiet but convenient location which means we can breakfast at The Rod and Reel and watch the dolphins and numerous fish and birds... then perhaps lunch opposite the City Pier at The Waterfront Restaurant then complete a decadent day with dinner at The Sandbar to watch the exquisite sunset. Museum on Pine Avenue provides a FREE insight into the history of this unique island or watch a play in the small but beautiful theatre or a more energetic life can be found at the Anna Maria Community centre with fitness classes and arts and crafts open to all.

Home Sweet Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

Returning to Beachlovers for a two week stay this time truly felt like we were coming home again. All of the amazing features we remembered like the screened in pool area, upper porch, bikes, beach amenities, spacious living room/kitchen and game room made our stay a pleasure. This lovely place was home to our adult children, spouses and three grandchildren, ages 6 months - 5 years. We cherish the quality time and family bonding that we shared.

The uncrowded Gulf beach is such a delight with magnificent sunsets. Our group walked around Bean Point to view the sunrise and collect shells. Firsts this time included a ride on the Trolley to the Bridge Street shops and renting a golf cart to explore the beautiful neighborhood and pier area. Side trips to Mote Aquarium, The Ringling and St. Armand's Circle were fun too.

Beachlovers is a treasure and we look forward to returning to our beach home away from home!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned to Scotland after a fantastic vacation in the beautiful vacation home called Beach Lovers. We were a large party of 8 adults and 2 children aged 7 and 4 and the house was ideal for us all. It is so well equipped with everything you could ask for. There was nothing more we could have wished for except we should have booked for two weeks instead of just one. Next time it will definitely be 2/3 weeks. We all loved it. The location is beautiful and idealic. It has something for everyone of all ages and the beautiful beaches are just a walk away. Eric and Helen could not have been more helpful and made booking very easy. I would certainly highly recommend Beach Lovers if you want a wonderful, exceptionally well equipped and beautiful house in a gorgeous location.

We just got home from a week at Beach Lovers! We had a great family vacation, celebrating birthdays, and the one year anniversary of our daughters stem cell transplant. The home is located In a quiet neighborhood, yet close enough to walk any where!

Had a great time thanks!!

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a huge family vacation - from 9 mos. old to 91 years old. It was great. The best things about the property are the rooms - although only 5 berms/3 baths - the bedrooms are either KINGS or 2 Queens - or one Queen - the two Queens -(instead of the usual bunks vs. twins) made it so comfortable for the adults sharing the rooms. One of the queens had enough room for port-a-crib...and high chair and stroller were available. The deck is lovely - the pool and family room were great. We really had no issues - and had the best family vacation in a long time - the only things that might keep us from booking next year: my mom is 91 - we really need to be ON the beach - or to have one level access for her....other than that - the only thing that would have made things better - would be a drink fridge in garage or game room - we tried not to go to town - and with only one refrigerator - had a hard time keeping drinks cold. I always missed the owners - but they sent a lovely wine basket, were attentive to any issues (none really) - and very kind. The bikes were GREAT.....and the local bike shop will fix tires/baskets/seats - anything that needs individual adjustment. It really was a dream vacation - and the house was the perfect gathering spot. GREAT VACATION!!

Owner's Response: Hi Dawn and family , Wow what an age range to consider when choosing a vacation. So pleased that you all had a great stay at our home. Amazing that your Mom could be there with you all .A real family get together. Glad that the bedroom arrangement worked well for you we decided that no one likes the small twin beds so replaced them with larger ones. It would be lovely to welcome you back at a future time. Thank you for taking the time to post this review. Helen and Eric

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Beachlovers! The house was perfect for our large family - infant, children to adults. Everything you could possibly need is right there. We enjoyed everything this home had to offer: heated, caged pool, game room, lovely deck, bikes, beach toys, beach chairs and wagons to transport everything to the beach just a short walk away. Close to shopping and restaurants, as well as Bean Point and piers for fishing! We all agree that when we can plan another family vacation we would love to go back! Thank you Eric and Helen for such wonderful accomodations!

Another wonderful vacation on AMI...

  • 5 of 5

We have spent spring break on Anna Maria Island for the past five years. This was our second stay at this lovely home. The owners are so easy to work with, and the house is perfectly situated for both togetherness and privacy. A short walk to the most beautiful beach, and a quick bike ride to Pine Ave. (restaurants, ice cream and shopping) and the city pier (amazing sunsets, and a trolley stop to get you anywhere on the island for free). Everything you could need for a fun time at the beach and good meals at home has been thoughtfully provided by the owners - a huge plus when traveling with kids. This year, our children especially enjoyed the nice new game tables in the game room. Our schedule may not allow a return to AMI in 2017 - but we definitely plan to be back in future years, and will happily return to Beachlovers anytime they will have us.

We are located at the very North end of Anna Maria Island in the city of Anna Maria... Beaches are the largest here of the whole island giving excellent walks both gulf side and around to the bay via Bean Point. Excellent small restaurant with unique bay and sea views and homestyle atmosphere at the Rod and Reel Restaurant and complimented with a full service good class Waterfront restaurant and an extended interesting menu... both very close and recommended.. Nearby on Pine Avenue are many attractive small shops to explore together with coffee shops and interesting eateries.. Spend some time at the local museum and historic jail.... Within easy driving the are numerous attractive venues both to extend the mind culturally around Sarasota to Longboat Key and Mote Marine Aquarium and many good value and quality shopping Malls and Outlet..
