Villa Chez Shell's location is outstanding! Being right in central Anna Maria Island, you are close to it all – shopping, restaurants, groceries, banks, the trolley, the beach, the bay – it is just perfect! The villa is located on a low traffic street and is only a short stroll (4 minutes) to the famous sugar sand beaches. Attracting travelers from all over the world, it is said that Anna Maria Island has the whitest and most pristine seven miles of beach in the US. In fact, in 2013 said that Anna Maria Island is an 'absolute slice of laid-back paradise' and ranked it #4 on the Top 10 US Islands list.
Walk just a few minutes over to Holmes Beach to watch the famous sunsets, enjoy a breakfast or brunch on the edge of the sand or catch the island's trolley to go exploring or shopping. If you don't want to drive, you don't need to. Stroll over to the bay and watch the sailboats drift by or take it easy and do nothing at all. Villa Chez Shell is a gem of a property that you will not want to leave.
We have traveled all over the world, and Anna Maria Island is our favorite place to kick back and relax!
