About The Owner

Looking to invest in rental property, our parents were the first to purchase a condo in the yet-to-be-built Gulf Sands property. They had first pick and chose Unit #205 for its incomparable and spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico. My sister and I inherited the property upon our father's death in early 2012, and are now continuing the family tradition of maintaining this beautiful island paradise. It is our hope to built upon what our parents began, and honor their memories by both keeping the property in the family, and maintaining it to the highest standard.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1974

Why The Owner chose Anna Maria Island

Our parents chose this property because it was so easily accessed from their residence in Bradenton, Florida, therefore giving them the ability to check regularly on its maintenance needs. Mike Norman Realty manages the rentals, and has done so since the very start. With easy access to a wide range of activities, and Gulf Coast amenities, the property is ideally situated for families, as well as for couples who just want to get away from it all. One would be hard-pressed to find a more stellar view than the one offered from Unit 205's balcony. It is unobstructed as viewers watch the sunset while enjoying a favorite beverage.

What makes this condo unique

With a private access to the beach, it's just a hop, skip, and a jump to the water. Visitors can go shelling in the morning, take a walk or run along the nearly 10 miles of white sand, and then end each day watching a gorgeous sunset. St. Armand's Circle, where European-style shopping is available, is located just a 20-minute drive away. And what a drive! Going south on Anna Maria Island, you cross the bridge to Long Boat Key, and then straight on to the 'Circle' that boasts world-famous designer shops, outstanding restaurants, and art galleries. But you needn't go that far to have the pleasure of great food and shopping. Within walking distance, these conveniences are available right near Gulf Sands.

During the months of March and April your Gulf Sands 205 rental is ready for you on Saturday afternoons for you to enjoy your week (or weeks) on the beach. Check out day is Saturday morning. Other times of the year, one-week minimum stays are available beginning any day of the week.
