About the property


Hello all you vacationers out there! The Marlin has three units total. Unit 202 is a one bedroom and will sleep four. It has a king bed and a queen sleeper sofa.

Unit 204 is a two bedroom one bath and will sleep six. It has a queen bed, two twin beds and a queen sleeper sofa.

Unit 206 is a two bedroom one bath and will sleep eight. It has a queen bed, two twin beds and two queen sleeper sofas.

The building has a large parking area that can accommodate a boat and trailer and both public boat ramps are no more than a 2 minute drive away.

There is also an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, sink and refrigerator and an outdoor sitting area with tables and chairs. There is hammock under the trees to relax in as well. Unit 206 has its own private sitting area.

In the front there is a covered area with more chairs so you can get some shade but still be outside enjoying the beautiful island weather. The street The Marlin is on is tucked back in and because it is not a through way and because there is no public parking, the street is hardly traveled and perfect for children.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to call or email.

I look forward to hearing from you and finding the perfect vacation rental for you.

If you are interested, we do have other properties available. We have a two bedroom two bath duplex also located in Holmes Beach. It's just a little over a mile away from the Marlin...or a trolley car ride!

Also available is a two bedroom, two bath condo. It sits on the bay side with beautiful views! This property is only available as a monthly rental. Please inquire for availability.

Remember we are listing 331207. Please write that down to view this website again! P

Thank you again! Look forward to meeting you soon.

Why Cheri chose Anna Maria Island

When I moved to the island I fell in love with the small town feel. I thought that other people would also enjoy getting to experience the tight knit community. So I set out to design the Marlin to accommodate family reunions or quick getaways. It makes me smile to be able to let someone else enjoy our island paradise. I hope that everyone that stays here will enjoy our island as much as I do and that it will be a yearly stop for many!

What makes this apartment unique

THE BEACH! a few steps and you are there! Then come back up for lunch, shower off in the outdoor shower and be back on the beach in no time at all. In the evenings, grill on the outdoor gas grill or sit and enjoy the night sea air and of course, most importantly don't miss a moment of the sunset. Less exciting but equally important is the Marlin offers free long distance calling, internet, cable TV, washer and dryer and a large parking area that can accommodate a boat and trailer.

Arriving late and want food in your unit or don't have time to shop? We can have it waiting in your room for you. Please inquire for rates. Additional room cleaning for extended stays is also available. Price: $50 Well, we did it thanks to everyone who stayed with us over the last year! Our pool has been completed! It is 31'X19'. It has a shallow end with a bench around the perimeter for sitting. The deep end is a large circle perfect for swimming and there is a 'beach' shelf which mimics sitting at the edge of the shore line. Inside the beach when unoccupied is a fountain and when occupied is a jet that created bubble rings. The pool has a four color light system which can be solid or multicolor and illuminates the pool for night enjoyment. Also, there is a HUGE deck around the pool with lounge chairs and tables.

The house was perfect, very clean and the property was well kept. The sunsets are amazing! The short walk down the quite road to the beach made it feel like you were on the beach front. The pool and grill area was huge compared to other properties. We love Anna Marie Island and will be back with the rest of the family. Thank you Cheri for the wonderful job you do.

Wonderful apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've stayed at the Marlin and I can't wait to go back. The apartment is spacious, bright, and immaculate. It is exceptionally well-stocked if you plan to cook. It's attractively decorated and less than a minute's walk to the beach. I had a car but it's a short walk to a very good grocery store and a number of good restaurants. The pool area is nice although it was too cool to swim while I was there. Even at regular prices it's a bargain for what you get, but I benefitted from a special rate that made the rental a steal. Cheri, the manager, is very helpful and easy to work with. I love the Marlin. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Me and my wife stayed at the Marlin 202 for a long weekend getaway. We had a great weekend. The house was very nice and clean. The pool area was also very nice. The beach is only 200yds away so very easy to walk back and forth to the house. Had all your beach needs with the beach towels, chairs and umbrella. You can walk to the grocery store and other stores. We also walked to breakfast on the beach in the morning which is at Manatee beach. I would defiantly come back and stay. Thank you to Chris for all your help!

So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Marlin for 5 nights in the beginning of October and had a wonderful time. I was there for a personal retreat and enjoyed that it was quiet, had all of the amenities that I needed (washer and dryer, beach chairs, pots and pans and kitchen stuff, comfortable couches and a hammock by the pool). The house is a 2 minute walk to the beach which makes it so easy to pop back and forth as needed. There is a Publix (grocery store) right around the corner and the downtown is a short drive away. The house was clean and tidy upon my arrival. I loved the little pool courtyard out back. I ate lunch outside most days and even took on the hammock one day. I will definitely check out the Marlin again if and when I am back at Anna Maria Island.
