Why Tim or Kate Eiseler chose Anna Maria Island

We've been coming to Anna Maria since the 80's from California and loved it so much, we bought property here. We saw this cute cottage and bought it, because of the location close to everything and it's on a canal.

What makes this bungalow unique

The Landscaping is awesome, very private, lots of little places to sit and relax. We see so much wild life sitting at the canal. It's a true Paradise.

Outdoor Living

  • 5 of 5

A truly enjoyable place to spend a vacation. The house and outdoor spaces were so well equipped that at times I would rather be at the property than going out into the island. Beautiful landscape! A true gem.

Perfect Place - Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so very private. The landscaped amazing and you could not even see the neighbors. We spent time in every little nook in the back yard. The dock was so relaxing with my morning coffee. The inside is so clean and up to date also. They thought of everything. We have been to AMI three times now, and the Tarpon Treehouse is by far the best place we have stayed. The photos do NOT do this little gem any justice. It is so much more than the photos show. We will book again for sure!!!!! Scott. Melissa, and boys.

This is a secluded piece of paradise. Private and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The Tarpon Treehouse is beautifully landscaped and tastefully and comfortably decorated. There's a wonderful variety of Palm trees and flowering plants everywhere that the owners have utilized perfectly to create the dream back yard. Several areas to relax and reconnect with loved ones. Soak in the hot tub or fish and watch for a possible Manatee on the dock. Even had a Snowy Egret walk right up to us.....just beautiful. Very highly recommended.

Perfect tropical canal front hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our boat but hated to spend time away from this oasis with it's very private, quiet, park-like setting. We didn't use our car at all during our stay. We bicycled everywhere, to breakfast, to dinner, to the piers and beaches. Even though the house has close neighbors, it has been landscaped in such a way that you're not aware of the neighbors and blinds/curtains can be left open even at night. This gave the home even more appeal by bringing the beautiful view outside to the inside. All furnishings are top quality and very comfortable. Everything was spotless when we arrived. Owner is quick to respond and easy to deal with. We will definitely be back!

We stayed at the beautiful place for 7 days and we really enjoyed it. A quit Street but very close to beaches, Pier, little Shops etc. The house is modern furnitured and we felt like home. The kitchen is well equiped and everything you need. Outside are different areas to relax and hang out. A lot of nature around: perfect :) it was very clean and well maintained. And the Owners are great. Thanks again for staying there. I will recommend it definitely!
