This stunning BEACHFRONT home was designed by an award winning Architect and is true paradise. The plan is open with the Living, Dining, Kitchen and Master Bedroom on the Waterfront adjacent to the deck which runs the entire length of the home. The elevated deck is a mere 10' from the waters edge. The Master Bedroom Suite has a walk-in closet and an opulent bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and shower. There is a king size bed in the Master Suite and a flat screen t.v.. The Master Suite has direct access to the waterfront deck.
The other two bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home with flat screen t.v.'s also.
Barbecue on the waterfront deck while the sun sets. Walk to the Anna Maria City Pier within 5 min. or enjoy other nearby restaurants and shopping.

I'm a local Architect, I've lived here all my life, I enjoy fishing, swimming, and walking on the beach, I travel extensively with my dog and husband.
laura gee purchased this house in 1993
I love Anna Maria, the quaint village atmosphere, the fabulous beaches, the great restaurants and shopping.
I love being car free, utilizing the free trolley and walking on the beach or just floating in the water working on my tan. One of my favorite things to do is barbeque on the waterfront deck as the sun sets while enjoying the dolphins and birds.
We stayed in this home for a few days last weekend and truly enjoyed our stay. We were comfortable, the view was breathtaking and we were blessed with great weather. Thank you Laura, it was a pleasure working with you and we hope to return soon!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was clean, well appointed and exceeded expectations. Laura, the owner was very easy to work with and was very accommodating.
Views are beautiful from the deck and from inside the home as well. Short walk to shopping and dining options. Relatively short walk to Gulf beaches also.
We stayed in this home for Spring Break 2014 and 2015 and have had two perfect vacations! Sitting on the deck directly on the water allows us to relax as the kids play in the water below - like having your own private beach. This spot on the bay is our kids' (and our) favorite place on Earth!! We look forward to booking another week as soon as possible. Restaurants and shopping are within walking distance.
This was a most wonderful week full of celebrations. Reservations and check-in went as smoothly as could be, no problems whatsoever! On our first night we enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Ocean Star Restaurant located within walking distance and overlooking the beautiful Bimini Bay. We relaxed every morning on the covered balcony enjoying the spectacular sunrises along with our morning coffee and breakfast. The views are simply breath taking!! In fact we spent most of our time on the balcony reading, napping, grilling, happy hour and just looking out onto Tampa Bay while enjoying the wonder marine life and summertime breezes. There was so much action out on the water especially during the memorial weekend which was very entertaining to watch when we were not in and enjoying the water ourselves. The master bedroom and bathroom are very spacious with the bedroom has it's own gorgeous views! Cooking was very easy as the kitchen had all that we needed to make many delicious meals. There is a Publix just down the street which made it very convenient to shop for all our grocery needs. Another delicious restaurant I would recommend is The Waterfront Restaurant within walking distance across from the pier. As far as activities we enjoyed jet skiing, boating and exploring the island from the bay side to the gulf side. We also chartered a fishing boat where we caught many fish and enjoyed them for our dinner:) What a fun time we had on that charter boat!! This Beach House allows pets which was a must for us...our dog had a good time too! These accommodations worked perfectly for our family. We were very comfortable during our entire stay:) I look forward to another visit at Laura's place where we can enjoy many more relaxing vacation days. I would Highly recommend this Beach House Paradise. Thanks Laura for sharing your home with us:)
My apologies for not writing this review sooner.
We had the opportunity to stay at this property for a month.
Great home, location, owner, etc.
You can walk, bicycle or take the public transportation to most every place on the island.
Would highly recommend!
We had the best time in this beach front home. The house was very comfortable for our family. Lots of room to spread out, but we tended to congregate on the porch overlooking the beach.
The house is as described. Three bedrooms on the upper floor. (You have to be able to walk up a full flight of stairs in order to get to the living space) Incredible views of the water from the kitchen, front room, and master bedroom. It was in a great location near stores and restaurants that you could walk to and just a short drive to all the other places on the island. There is a free trolley that you can ride that takes you from one end to the other. It really helped that there was a washer/dryer in the unit.
I looked up other rentals on the island and actually went to look to see where they were, as we are planning on returning. Based on the price and location, I couldn't find another one that offered as much as this unit, even if you removed the pet friendly filter.
Laura, the owner, was very helpful and quick to return calls and emails. When we needed another light bulb because one burned out, it was there the next morning. The refund check was sent back quickly also.
The owner let us have our dog at the house, which was great. Although, the island itself is not really dog friendly. You are not allowed to have your dog on the beach; however, we kept her on the beach right by the house and didn't have any problems. Plus, there is a beach on the causeway that you can have dogs.
One thing I didn't understand from the pictures is how you got to the beach from the house. There is a staircase that goes from the porch down the side of the house and then you walk under the porch. This is a nice area where you can be right by the water but not in the sun. Then there are three stairs to the sand. My daughter loved laying out on the beach.
The only thing I could even think of that might improve the rental is to have twins beds in one of the bedrooms. Regardless, we were 110% satisfied with our stay and are planning on returning.
Thank you, Laura.
The home is only a 7 min. walk to the nearest Trolley stop which runs every 20 min. the entire length of the island. You do not need a car.
