3 bedroom, 3 bath, Canal front, Saltwater Pool, only minutes to the Beach
This beautiful canal front home is located on a quiet street in the exclusive north end of Anna Maria Island. The tastefully decorated 3 bedrooms, 3 baths home was updated in 2004 and sleeps up to 8 people. The home is a block to Tampa Bay and three blocks to the sugar sand beach on the Gulf. It’s also just two blocks to the quaint shopping and restaurants of Pine Avenue and the City Pier.
The back yard is your own private piece of paradise. The salt water pool is nestled among native palms, sea oats and mangroves for a very private experience. You’ll have your choice of two dining areas, a gas grill, and chaise lounges in the sun or the shade.
It’s a short trip on boat or kayak from the dock to Bimini Bay, Tampa Bay, Egmont and Longboat Keys, and the Gulf of Mexico. There are a number of waterfront restaurants close by where you can dock and enjoy a great meal.
If watercrafts aren’t your thing, the dock in your back yard is also a great place to fish, or just to sit and enjoy a beverage, watch the mullet jump and see the seabirds skim the water. In the winter months, it's not unusual to see dolphins and manatees cruise by.
If you must leave the island, the nearby Sarasota / Bradenton area is known for the arts, dining, shopping and baseball Spring training. Less than an hour North over the Skyway bridge is Saint Petersburg, with its Baywalk and Dali museum, and a little further North over the causeway puts you in Tampa with its own arts, sports and history, and a great Aquarium.
Whatever you choose to do – this beautiful home and Island is a great place to do it – or to just relax and do nothing at all.

Why Giovanna chose Anna Maria
Florida's west coast beaches have always been our favorite ones, and when we visited Anna Maria for the first time we immediately fell in love with it. The easy going life style of the island, sugar sand beaches, dolphins, manatees, birds! A year later we were living in PARADISE!
What makes this House unique
We loved the location of the home mainly because of the quite street. It's very secluded yet close to everything. We lived just a short time at Tarpon Home, and hope to come back and enjoy the island again. The things that I miss about AMI are: Sunrise walks on the beach (all the way to the tip of the island), sunsets out on our dock, the residents and of course people like you that come to explore this beautiful place. We are so blessed to have a place here and be able to share it with you. Please treat yourself and enjoy AMI life while you are at our Tarpon home.

Perfect vacation week
My family of 5 had an amazing week at Villa tarpon once again. The house is absolutely perfectly laid out with a large open floor plan. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the house is well stocked with everything you would need for the beach or pool. The overall feel of the house is a relaxed beach house which is perfectly appointed. It is also by far the cleanest house I have ever rented on the island!
We rented Kayaks from Beach Bums and had them delivered the day we arrived. My girls and I enjoyed going out for evening kayaks which we were able to launch right off the property. The big dock was perfect for the girls to fish off while my husband and lounged around in the generous pool furniture.
The house is perfectly located on the north end of the island so you can easily walk down to the pier to watch the sun rise or walk up for ice cream at Dips in the evening.
Giovanna is also the kindest owner I have ever rented from. She goes out of her way to make sure that you have everything you need and that you are enjoying your stay.
You won't go wrong renting staying at Villa Tarpon!

Perfect AMI Rental
This rental and the owner are extraordinary. The location is perfect. Quick walk to either the bay beach or the gulf beach and to the Pine Ave stores. The owner is incredibly helpful and always available to answer questions or give recommendations. The pool deck is beautiful and offers both sun and shade. The dock on the canal is ideal for kayaking and paddle boarding to the bay. Plenty of table seating indoor and outdoor for large families. House is well stocked with beach towels, beach and pool toys, beach chairs, coolers and a wagon. House was incredibly clean upon arrival and has lots of space. We would definitely rent this house again!
We enjoyed the location of the property.
The owner was very helpful and replied quickly with any questions. It was nice to be on the canal for my son to fish, and 3 blocks away from the beach.
We are glad to hear that you and your family had a great stay. AMI is a wonderful place for families to enjoy a beach vacation and for relaxation. Thanks for taking the time to review us. Please come back and visit again!
I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. The villa is beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. The location is wonderful and we could walk to the beach, City Pier and Rod and Reel pier. The pool area is private and not over looked and the mooring out the back was a wonderful place to spot wildlife, every day we would be out there watching the birds and we even saw manatee swim by which was amazing. It was so peaceful. There were 3 adults and 3 children in our party and the villa was perfect. The owner was great and contacted us on several occasions to check everything was ok. This really was a holiday of a lifetime and we went home with fantastic memories. Thank you so much!
We delighted to hear that you and your family had a great vacation here in AMI. It really makes us happy when our guests enjoy the property and our island as much as you did..
And you got a visit from the manatees! That is always very special.
Thanks for the kind words and we look forward to having you visit again.
