Overview

Anna Maria Island House Rental Photos and Description

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 Island

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, 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 you.

Please treat yourself and enjoy AMI while you are at our Tarpon home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you all for a wonderful week at the house on Tarpon. Everything was wonderful You made it very easy for us from the time we booked the house, arrived at the airport with directions, getting the the key, having the boat delivered,and finding that the house was better than we expected.

We hope to return to Anna Maria Island in the future and will contact you for our stay

Gorgeous home-- perfect for trip with extended family

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Anna Maria island and we couldn't possibly have picked a better place to stay if we tried. We were traveling with three small children and four adults and we all fit very comfortably.

The pictures don't do it justice. When we walked in, the house was beautifully decorated for the holidays, completely spotless. Amenities galore- toys for the pools, toys for the beach, things like coffee filters, every possible item you would need in the kitchen. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the layout of the house was perfect. All one floor but spread out enough that everyone had space when needed. The pool was warm and the dock was great. We rented a 25 ft pontoon boat and it fit no problem. Many restaurants close by, shopping close, as well as the general store. The free trolley stop was about two blocks away and takes you anywhere you want to go, including Publix, which was super helpful. The beach was a five minute walk away and it was a gorgeous beach! Can't imagine staying anywhere other than this house on our next visit.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures truly do not do this house justice. It is very well maintained and extremely clean. Every little detail is thought of and plenty of room for the six of us. Giovanna was amazing to work with and always responded to me immediately if I had questions. The only thing I can say is that the mattresses in the kids' room were extremely uncomfortable according to our grown daughters, but they are also used to Tempur-Pedic mattresses. If young ones stayed in the room with the bunk beds I'm sure it would be fine. We are spreading the word about this house that is for sure!

Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We visit Florida every summer and this was by far the best place we have ever stayed. The house was very clean and had everything you could possibly need while away from your home. Very good location, close to both the Bay and the beautiful gulf beaches. Giovanna was super nice and was there to answer any questions you had quickly.

First rate

My family and I greatly enjoyed our stay at Villa Tarpon! The house is beautifully decorated, the beds are comfy, the furniture is nice, and there is everything you could need -- significantly more than any rental we've had. There's a beach cart, beach chairs & toys, umbrella, every kitchen gadget imaginable, games, books, first aid kit, bug spray, etc. We really enjoyed the pool area (with lots of pool toys & life jackets) and the canal dock. We launched kayaks from there and also caught many fish right off the dock. Wonderful home in fantastic location! Thank you!!

Beautiful home, awesome pool, great home for a family!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for spring break!! This is a great house with all the amenities! Fabulous salt water pool that is very spacious. Not like some of the pools on the island that aren't any bigger than a hot tub. Two patio tables with umbrellas that have cool lights in them for those evenings sitting by the pool while the kids still want to swim. Tons of pool toys for the kids to enjoy. Nice open floor plan with a great kitchen. The only thing I'd say is be careful launching kayak in canal as there are some very sharp barnacles on the shore. 2 of our kids found that out the hard way🙁 But there was a great first aid kit on hand in house to help care for the wounds. Overall great place! Giovanna was very helpful!

Beautiful home with backyard oasis and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This home offers everything you need for a perfect stay. The house is beautifully decorated in a beachy theme. It had a nice layout, comfortable beds and was immaculate. The backyard is very private and was like your own little tropical oasis … absolutely perfect for relaxing on the patio or going in the warm temperature pool. The dock is great too … ideal for kayaking or paddle boarding. There are plenty of beach towels, a cart full of beach gear (chairs, umbrella) should you want to stroll to the beach, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you might possibly need. The location is fantastic and is walking distance from beaches, restaurants and shops. Giovanna was so pleasant to work with. She will answer absolutely any questions you have and goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect for you. I would definitely recommend this house. We had a very fun, relaxing family getaway!
