Overview

About the property

One-level 3 bedroom home with PRIVATE, heated pool, just steps to the beach

STYLE, EASE, and COMFORT -- This one-level (NO STAIRS) duplex home, was completely redone in 2011, and just "refreshed" in 2016. You'll enjoy the “beachy” theme, an updated, well-equipped kitchen (dishwasher, stainless steel appliances and granite counters), and a washer/dryer so you can pack light. The King Master Bedroom (with en suite bathroom), Queen Guest Room, and Twin Bedroom provide comfortable sleeping for 6 guests.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION -- With less than a 2 minute walk to the white sand beaches of the Gulf and just a short walk to Publix, drugstores, restaurants, and the Free Trolley stops, you will find everything you might need without ever having to get in a car (which would be parked in one of 3 off-street parking places).

NEED A BEACH BREAK? -- Relax in the fenced-in, private backyard with your own (not shared) heated pool. The waterfall, swim-up seating area, and sun-shelf wading area add to the ambiance of the lushly landscaped backyard, with gas grill and outdoor patio seating.

FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT -- You’ll be entertained and connected with flat-screen TVs in the living area and all 3 bedrooms, DVD player, and Wi-Fi. The private garage stores your beach cart, beach umbrella and sand toys, as well as 2 bicycles for your island adventures.

About Linda Carmon

We’re just two lifelong New Englanders who, after 45 years of owning a family business and raising 4 children, are looking forward to a time when we can fully enjoy the blessings of family, health, and resources that God has given us, and do that in a little piece of His paradise. We love every season on AMI, so we come down as often as possible, but hope to become true “snowbirds” in a few years.

Linda Carmon purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda Carmon chose Anna Maria Island

Parents of 4 sons, and grandparents of six beautiful granddaughters, we wanted a place to lure everyone away for lasting family memories. Like most people, we fell in love with Anna Maria Island on our first visit, and by the second, we were looking for our own home. We actually have two homes so we can spread out when we’re all together, and Palms Beach House West is perfect for one of our son's family of five. The total family gatherings are rare, so in the meantime, we enjoy sharing this great vacation retreat with other families and couples visiting AMI.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location – literally steps (200) from the beautiful Gulf beach and easy walking distance to Publix, drugstores, and restaurants. From the nearby Free Trolley stop, you can cover the entire island, from Bean Point in Anna Maria to Coquina Beach, enjoying the unique character of each section of the island.

We had a wonderful vacation. We look forward to our next stay!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are wonderful and they do all they can to accommodate any request. They respond immediately to minor questions/issues. The house is open and inviting and has everything you need to make it your home during your stay. And the pool area is paradise! The only down side for us was the noise next door. They had a baby with quite a set of lungs. The short walk to the beach makes it easy to see the sunset every night. And the binder with suggestions/recommendations came in very handy. We would recommend this property to everyone!

Immaculate

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family vacation! The home was clean and well cared for. We are a family of 6 and we had tons of room. We had access to everything you could possibly need during our stay. No detail was missed. The kitchen had lots of space and any utensil you may need. The pool was beautiful(so wonderful in fact we had to pull our children away to go to the beach!). The grill wasn't working when we arrived on Saturday(Linda let us know ahead of time so we weren't caught off guard). She had a new grill delivered and installed by Tuesday. The information book at the home was full of tips and ideas for places to eat and visit. It was a very short walk to the beach and the garage had everything we needed for our beach trips(umbrellas, chairs, beach cart, etc.)This was our 5th visit to Anna Maria and by far the best rental we have ever stayed at. Linda was a pleasure to communicate with and responded in a timely manner every time. There weren't any negatives to the home or property. There were people next door during our stay but we still had complete privacy. The worst part of the property was leaving it! Thank you for such wonderful accommodations Linda!

Beautiful house near the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We were four adults and one teenager and stayed for one week. The house and grounds are well maintained, tastefully decorated and furnished and comfortable. It is ideally located for walking to the beach and to the stores. The property is exactly as it appears in the pictures. Linda is very responsive should anything come up.

Perfect location for the beach

  • 5 of 5

We came for a week with our three young children and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect. It takes no time to get to the beach (a quick short walk), so we didn't have to take a car (i.e. buckle everyone into carseats to go). Plus we could run "home" whenever someone needed to use the restroom. The beach was beautiful and quiet and completely relaxing. Linda provided beach toys and water items and our kids spent hours making animals in the sand and playing out in the water. The house was perfect as well. It was very clean. The beds were nice. We especially appreciated the beach towels that were provided. We felt completely safe in the neighborhood. The pool was a huge hit and it was key that the water was heated because we went in February and the air could be cool at times. The size and depth were great for the ages of our kids (all under 8). We plan to return because it was such an enjoyable place to vacation.

It is a townhome style place, which means there's a shared wall with another neighboring unit. Not an issue for us because the pool was still private.
