About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

It’s as if you have gone back to a time when life and its pleasures seemed simpler when you walk through the front door of this old Florida, bay front home. Located on an uncrowded bayside beach with sweeping views of Tampa Bay, this 3 bedroom / 3 bath home will have you relaxed and refreshed in no time. Both the Florida room with its wide windows and the tree shaded, open air deck on the beach are the perfect places for dining, reading or catching up with your friends by postcard or internet. For those nights when there is a chill in the air, there is a wood burning fireplace in the living room. You can also stroll up the street to the historic Rod & Reel Pier, famous for its fishing and food, or go a bit further to Bean Point and the beach on the Gulf side of the island. If you head out in the other direction you will find Bayfront Park, the City Pier and all the shops, galleries and restaurants scattered along Pine Avenue from bay to beach. This home can sleep up to 7 people with a king size bed in the master bedroom, a queen and a twin size bed in a second bedroom and 2 twin size beds in the third bedroom. In addition, there are 3 TVs and a DVD player plus Wi-Fi throughout the home. Relax in the atmosphere of old Florida while enjoying all the modern conveniences in this comfortable beach house on the bay.

Beautiful, Relaxing, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Beach House property was a wonderful location to really get away and relax. Being at the north end of island you are far enough away from the busy area, but close enough with a short drive or bike ride. The house was very clean and comfortable and the view from the huge picture windows was beautiful. There is a small spiral staircase to the master bedroom space on the second floor, but the space and view are well worth the stairs up and down. There are two other bedrooms on the main floor if you do not want the stairs. I will share that the beach behind the house is more on the shady side but there are opportunities to catch some sun rays if that is what you want and a short walk to the tip of the island has an extensive sunny beach. Reading in the shade on the lovely patio is great. Being on the Tampa Bay side of the island, the beach water is calmer and so very clear that you can see the sandy bottom with star fish and sand dollars even in 4-5 feet of water. We would recommend the Beach House to anyone looking for time away from the hustle and bustle.

Vacation Bliss

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a 3 bedroom house in a great location with amazing views and uncrowded beaches this is it! Your own private beach on the bay to watch the sunrises, shorebirds and dolphins literally at your back door. Sunsets, gulf beaches and surf just a short walk and two fishing piers within a five minute walk.

The house has been updated and is well furnished and decorated. The master bedroom is up a spiral staircase so if you have mobility issues it may be a problem, otherwise the master suite is great! The downstairs bedrooms are small but well suited for children. The kitchen had everything we needed but lacks counter space. There is a great laundry room with 2 dryers and a fish cleaning station.

Overall this house is a great value with an unbeatable location. We will be back.

Fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

As regular visitors to Anna Maria this is the first time we have stayed in a beach front house we were not dissapointed. House was great very clean and well maintained had a homely beachy feel to it with all the ameanities you need for a comfortable stay. Outside area was fantastic with shade from trees in afternoon if wanted.We were able to fish directly from the shore outside or walk 5 minutes either way to one of the piers.

Views were fantastic especially from mater bedroom and the Florida room. Bean piont was a 5 minute stroll to watch the stunning sunsets or you could enjoy beautiful sunrises from the decking .Steve Bark real Estate were very helpful with any problems we had.

Hope to rebook this house for next year as soon as possible.

Beach House on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

This house on North Shore Drive was absolutely perfect! Nestled between 2 piers (City Pier and Rod and Reel Pier) and with a huge shade tree in the yard, we were in paradise on the beach. Great part of the beach to play in. We kayaked, rode bikes and watched dolphins every day. The house itself was very homey and well decorated. We didn't feel crowded at all, and everything was very clean and updated throughout the house. We can't wait to visit "our house" again!

Lovely spot

  • 4 of 5

Take note, you can only get to the second floor suite, which is lovely, by a winding narrow staircase.

Front row seat

  • 4 of 5

Very enjoyable few days. Great location with views of Tampa Bay, Skyway Bridge. Ships, sailboats, dolphins, lots of birds. People passing by, but not crowded. Walk down the beach to the Bayfront Park. Sit on deck or swim right out front.

House comfortable and well equipped. Spiral staircase to master bedroom was a surprise and not convenient for the elderly. Not HP accessible because step up into house from driveway.

Bedrooms downstairs small, but adequate. Only complaints: fabric in deck chairs ripped and no screens on bedroom windows.

Beautiful weather with cooling breeze and lots of sunshine.
