We are a family from England who fell in love with Anna Maria Island some 25 years ago, we made our dream come true and purchased our little piece of paradise in 2003. This is the first time we have listed our property for rent and hope to share some of its magic with you and your family.
Anne Thomasson purchased this house in 2003
Anna Maria is a special place and we love it because it has retained alot of the Old Florida charm. There are no high rise hotels and commercialism like some other places in Florida. It has some of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see and the turquoise seas in summer are warm and safe for small children
We choose our home because it is very pretty, has the Wow factor inside and for the fact it is on the water. The boat dock was the clinch!
We had a great time in Anna Marie, one of our favorite vacation locations.
Your house was marvelous and we enjoyed staying there and we have sent a very favorable review.
We are still reliving the wonderful memories created during our recent (third time) stay in one of our favorite places!
The location is unbeatable and the surroundings peaceful and relaxing. We love that we can walk or bike to so many attractions and that the trolley is very accessible; hardly used our car at all! Thank you again, Anne and Geoff, for your hospitality and the opportunity to enjoy this very special place. We look forward to our winter escape in 2017!
What a lovely, comfortable house. The pictures are completely representative of the property. We were visiting AMI to celebrate my sisters 50th birthday, and the house was perfect for us. Coffee on the lanai in the morning was a peaceful way to wake up, the kitchen was well equipped to cook in and though we expected to eat out a lot, we cooked in most nights then went for walks around the island and our husbands found the fishing fun and diversified. We did see a manatee swim up to the dock. We rented Kayaks and easily paddled out to the ocean from the dock and it was a 10 minute walk to the beautiful beach. If you are there for busy season I recommend renting bicycles, kayaks etc in advance, things book up fast. VRBO was responsive, clear in communications and the house was ready and clean when we arrived. Awesome vacation all around and we will likely be back! Everyone in our party raved about the house & location, it is a special property.
This was our second "escape from winter" stay in this lovely, comfortable home and we could not have been happier! The location is perfect, and we enjoyed the amenities tremendously. We slept in a comfortable bed, made meals in a well stocked kitchen, explored the whole island on bikes that were provided, and lounged comfortably on the screened deck or canal-side patio. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet and just a short walk to the free trolley. We are just delighted that we will be able to return to our "home away from home" same time next year.
Thank you, Anne and Geoff, for sharing your special place with us!
We had a very enjoyable vacation. The house was perfect for our needs and very well equipped. The location of the home was excellent, close to the main street, restaurants and beaches. If you like the photos of the home you will not be disappointed. The top deck is a lovely sun trap, the screened porch is very private surrounded by tropical vegetation. Sitting by the canal is another added bonus.
This is our third stay at Coral gardens and we enjoyed every minute of it.The family were with us for two weeks and they also love the condo and everything about Coral gardens and TCI.
This was our 4th stay - so needless to say that we love this house and it´s perfect setting on this gorgeous island. A house with lots of great places to relax, a coffee on the patio, a drink at the waterside or a sundowner on the roof terrace. We enjoyed the perfect beach easily reached by a short walk.
The house is provided with everything you need, a nice baby crib can easily be rented at Baby rentals next to the post office for $35 a week.
Our two little daughters loved the outside shower and the dock, watching wildlife and fishes swimming by. They were so excited watching manatees smoothly swimming by when we had an early morning coffee at the dock.
I loved doing my pilates exercise upstairs on the roof terrace in the early morning hearing only the birds twitter.
Thank you so much Anne and Geoff for making our family holiday so special.
We will come again, soon - very soon.
Glorious sunsets of Anna Maria Island are world famous and can be viewed from all three beaches, piers or off your on rooftop gallery. The island is laid back and relaxed with world class restaurants and bars. An olde world trolley bus provides free travel through the island and onto mainland town of Bradenton. Life here is all about the beaches , sunshine and the ocean (fishing is exceptional for tarpon redfish trout grouper snapper kingfish ) . Pine avenue provides a beautiful shopping experience and cafe scene but for nightlife and other activities Bradenton and Sarasota are just 30 mins away . Disney world and Orlando attractions are 2 to 3 hours away .
