About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 baths, sleeps 13 with youth bed

Large luxury home located just steps from the powdery-soft, white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Newly renovated with granite, stainless steel, and all new furnishings. Outdoors we have one of the largest private pools in a fenced tropical setting complete with a hammock and swing. Practice your shots on the putting green. Three bedrooms on the ground level. No need to climb stairs, although you may want to view the gorgeous sunsets from the upstairs balcony off the master bedroom that includes a kitchenette for evening drinks or morning coffee. After a day at the beach, let the children unwind around the air hockey/ping pong table or with the X-box 360 Kinect. 2 large refrigerators will keep cases of drinks ice cold. Steaks or seafood on the barbecue grill will complete dinner with no need to change out of swimsuits. Plenty of room to park a boat or multiple cars or use the free trolley that stops less than a block away. Bring the puppies, too. What would a vacation be without them!

Fabulous Home - Would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

We had one of our best Thanksgivings in this home. The house had all the amenities we needed and was very clean well located to the beach, trolley and shopping. We were 11 people (3 families) and all had our own space. You do not feel crowded in this home at all. It was clean, spacious, well kept up and the listing was accurate. We used the heated pool every day and walked to the beautiful beach in just a minute or two. We even saw the dolphins jump in the morning and brought home some beautiful shells. The local restaurants on the Island were wonderful and Publix (just 2 miles away) did a fabulous job catering our Thanksgiving meal. We would stay in this home again and if you are considering it, don't hesitate.

First I have to start out with location, location, location. Flips Flops Forever is located just 3 houses away from the beach. We'd pack our cooler and head over for the whole day but still was able to easily walk back and use the bathroom and get more sun block. It was also close enough to walk, bike ride or take the trolley into town for shopping and restaurants.

The second highlight is the pool. It's so nice and a great size. There is even a ledge for little kids to play, supervised of course, or to put a chair and lounge. The temperature was perfect. There was a grill in the back yard for cooking out and plenty of lounge chairs and even a hammock. A great place for hanging out or taking an afternoon nap. Did I mention the putting green, and the volleyball net? There was something for everyone.

The house itself was very nice. A great size and set up for multiple families vacationing together. There is plenty of room for everyone to have privacy. There is a pool room for the kids and game components too in the living room. The kitchen is gorgeous and has all the amenities that you would need.

There is a full size washer and dryer in the second, newly remodeled, bathroom downstairs. It's so nice to be able to pack light and wash your swim suit.

The upstairs has a great set up, 2 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is huge and is set up for a whole family, a queen bed, a twin trundle and a toddler bed. It even has a mini fridge, microwave and sink for snacks. This is my favorite room of the house, there's even a balcony with an ocean view.

We've stayed at a several houses in Anna Maria and this was by far the best. Enjoy.

This house was AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous vacation and the family LOVED the house, it was VERY hard to leave at the end of the week!

The pool is a lot bigger than what the picture shows and there is plenty of seating around the pool. The house is literally across the street from the beach, it doesn't get much better.

I have rented other properties from HomeAway and you never know what you are going to be walking into. This property definitely exceeded my expectations. Denise was prompt with her e-mails and the management company was very easy to work with.

I hope to rent this house again next summer, so if you are reading this you better act fast! :)
