About the property

4 Bedroom 2 Bath Family Home

2013 is the first year we have rented our family beach house on Anna Maria Island. Our kids are in school and it is harder to get down to FL. We love this quaint and charming area of Florida. The house sits on a canal at the end of a cul de sac off of historic Pine Avenue. The house is a 5 minute walk to the beach. You are also in walking distance of great restaurants (the waterfront, relish cafe, city pier & the sand bar) and fabulous boutiques and shops that line Pine Avenue.

The beach is in a secluded area of the island that does not have much public access - therefore it feels very private and not too crowded. The only open air waterfront restaurant - the sand bar sits at the end of the street - this is perfect for lunch, or a cocktail after visiting the beach.

Inside the house you will find four bedrooms - one bedroom on the first level, two bedrooms on the second level and one loft bedroom on the third floor. The first level bedroom sleeps two in a pull out sofa, the second level has a master king bed and a queen bed in the two rooms, the third floor loft has two twin beds with pull out trundel twin beds. In total the house sleeps 8 comfortably. There is a long living area on the second level with an open kitchen and an adjacent dining area leading into the open living room with wood burning fireplace. The living room has a series of sliding doors that look out onto a second floor deck surrounding the house. The deck contains outdoor living room furniture and a dining table that seats four. There are two bathrooms on the second level - one has a two person shower and the other has a large soak tub with jets. The house contains three tv's; in the master, kids loft and main living room with cable. High speed wireless internet is available.

The back yard contains a large swimming pool and a 8 person hot tub. To the side of the pool is a built in tile bar and outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, pool, refrigerator, and sink. An outdoor bathroom and shower are also poolside. Beach gear and kids toys provided. There are small life jackets, various bikes, and a rugged beach stroller available for your use while at the property. The backyard also contains a dock and a boat lift (there are two covered bridges out to the bay).

The house is nicely decorated and has a well equipped kitchen. The views from every room are soothing and beautiful.

Longboat Key is a 15 minute drive and St. Armands circle is a 35 minute drive - you can reach downtown Sarasota in 45 minutes from the house. The closest airport is Sarasota (40 minutes), Tampa airport is also nearby (70 minutes).

Beautiful location, comfortable home, great outdoor space.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect getaway for a relaxing family reunion. The private pool, hot tub and outdoor living area were ideal and where we spent most of our time. We fished off the back dock and enjoyed watching the wildlife. Tons of pool toys kept my 10 year old entertained. The beds were very comfortable. The lower level bedroom is small, and as noted is a fold-out couch. We knew this, and were prepared, but be aware, it is a bit tight. Upper level loft was very sweet - probably best for toddlers/smaller kids. The kitchen was great and well-stocked. The open living area was spacious and comfortable for our group. The walk to the beach is a little further than 5 minutes - I would say more like 15. If you are bringing chairs/gear it is a bit of a walk. There is a beach stroller to haul gear that was very useful. There is also a very nice paddleboard we all enjoyed. The house was overall in good condition and a great home base to explore this lovely location!

wonderful property with lots of character in a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and comfortable property with lots or room and facilities (although I think one shower in a 4 bed property isn't enough ). Fabulous pool area and lovely views over the water. We had a wonderful stay. The only downside was the very noisy air conditioning unit on the outside of the property which reverberation into the bedroom next to the kitchen and the bedroom downstairs. Think it needs an update.

The property is great and we enjoyed everything. Located in a cul-de-sac and right near everything you could need. We would stay here again if we have the chance.

Perfect for family fun!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week on Anna Maria Island, and this house offered everything we needed, with comfortable furnishings for the 9 of us (2 families). We lucked out on the unseasonable weather, every day was warm and sunny. The kids loved the hot tub and pool, sleeping in the loft, short walk to the beach and the Donut Experiment on Pine. For meals, we sat 3 kids at the bar, with the rest at the table. We enjoyed many of the extra amenities, such as tons of DVDs, bike, the beach buggy/wagon and toys. Thank you for sharing your home, everything was wonderful.

Excellent House and Good times

  • 4 of 5

The house is so pretty, we found all we need in a beach house. The hot pool and Jacuzzi were wonderful, we enjoyed during day and night, the kids enjoyed the bikes, fishing, and playing with the table games as well, the canal is in the back of the house so we bought our boat. The house is big and comfortable for a large family, is provided with two wine coolers, which we found very nice. We recommend this property, and we are hopping to come back next year. Thank you very much Brittany and Scott!!!
