**Please note! Pool heater in our home is locked for your safety and controls must not be tampered with as they are monitored by the pool company. 80° is the highest heat temperature setting. Pool temperatures will probably stay around 75° during the winter months. Please note if cold days occur, water temperatures will drop and may stay cooler longer. Pool heaters will not operate and will automatically shut down if outside temperatures get too cold. While we take every precaution to ensure that pool is heated as specified, weather conditions may affect the temperature of the pool. Nothing can be done about this issue. Outdoor spa is not a hot tub. The temperature of the spa is set at the same temperature as the pool. Guests should not expect hot tub like temperatures for pool spas. In the event of pool equipment malfunctions during your stay, we will expedite repairs as quickly as possible. It may be necessary to close the swimming pool for maintenance purposes. No refund or rent adjustment will be made for circumstances beyond our control, malfunctions or loss of use of equipment or amenities.

About Anna Prokop

Originally from Poland, we moved to Bradenton/Sarasota area in 2013 after living in Maryland's Washington DC suburbs for over 25 years. We have 2 teens and have discovered Anna Maria Island several years ago when coming to Florida for our annual amusement parks trips. After many visits to the Island we decided to move to the area permanently. We bought a farm in Myakka City which is next to Bradenton and Sarasota and moved there permanently in the Summer of 2013.

Anna Prokop purchased this house in 2011

Why Anna Prokop chose Anna Maria Island

We found this house in 2011 as it was being built. We were attracted by two things: its size and comfort as it's much bigger than most 6 bedroom houses on the Island and by its unique Clark Lake location. Many people on the island don't even know that this lake exists because it is not readily visible from the street. The lake offers wonderful views and an opportunity to observe wildlife that frequents its waters. For instance, there is a gray heron that visits the yard each morning. It is very neat to watch it while eating breakfast.

What makes this house unique

Sarasota-Bradenton Florida, also known as the “culture coast,” is a melting pot of artists, executives, philanthropists, and beach-lovers from all over the world. The sugar-white sands and vast expanses of warm, shallow, aqua-blue waters draw people from the other side of the world to the center of the state. Though Sarasota-Bradenton is part of the greater Tampa-St. Petersburg metropolitan area, it has a style that is distinctly all its own, and is separated by the natural boundary of Tampa Bay. The well recognized Sunshine Skyway Bridge links Sarasota-Bradenton with its big brother to the north.

Over 650,000 residents call Sarasota-Bradenton their home, in organic communities like Northwest Bradenton, to planned communities like Lakewood Ranch and Palmer Ranch to the south. Longboat Key is host to one of the wealthiest zip codes in the country. Siesta Key is known for its beautiful beaches and nightlife, where Anna Maria Island is a virtual melting pot of all types of people. If sports are your passion, the area host spring training baseball teams, offers endless water sports, fishing and boating, and has one of the highest saturation of golf courses in the country.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying here! Our huge family rented several houses in the area and everyone thought ours was the best – we loved the open kitchen, living, dining and took advantage of the short walk to the beach as often as possible. Good times were had by all, especially our guest of honor whose 90th birthday was the reason we gathered to celebrate.

Our family of 10 LOVED this fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 (ages 22 to 82) spent a great week at Anna's fabulous beach house. We echo everything the other reviewers have said! Anna has a lovely, well-decorated home with plenty of space for everybody and so many extras, including a beautiful spa/pool area, great balconies to watch the seabirds, and tons of beach gear, toys, and bikes. The mid-island location a few blocks from the beach is also perfect. Anna is super responsive and a pleasure to work with. We'd love to go back!

Fabulous Home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this home and its many amenities. The large kitchen/gathering rooms and pool area were fabulous! The home was well appointed with great linens, dishes/utensils, games, bikes, pool/beach toys, beach chairs, etc. Wish we could have stayed longer! Highly recommend for large family/group, lots of space, comfortable beds, wonderful balconies, and more! Home had plenty of parking and easy beach access - but you won't want to leave the private oasis of this backyard!

Even better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a weekend at the house and we could not have asked for a more perfect location and house! The house is spacious, updated and clean. Everything you need is already at the property. We enjoyed the many pool float options, the wagon for our beach gear and the bikes to get to town. The beach is a right down the block and is the perfect place to enjoy the gorgeous sunsets. Anna, the owner was a pleasure to work with too!

I highly recommend this this location and property- you will not be disappointed! We are hoping we can get the house again for next year.

Amazing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough words to describe how much we loved staying at the Emerald Seas.Beach House. This house is simply amazing. All rooms looked exactly as pictured online. Anna, the owner, was wonderful and easy to work with. My son was married at The Sandbar only a few minutes away. Not only did this house have very comfortable accommodations, we were able to have wedding guest gatherings at the house also. It made for the most memorable beach wedding weekend ever!

We would recommend this beach rental to all and will definitely stay here again when traveling back to Anna Maria Island.

Travelers' Choice® 2013 Winner Islands

The barrier island of Anna Maria is an absolute slice of laid-back paradise. Golfing and fishing are two of the most popular tourist activities, though an afternoon lounging at Bean Point beach is a must-do, too. The Anna Maria Island Historical Museum is a fun way to soak up some local history when you’re taking a break from soaking up the sun.
