About the property

Gulfside 1Br/1Ba Apartmen

Delightful private fully furnished one bedroom apartment on second floor of old Florida house located less than 100 feet from access to the white sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico. The spacious master bedroom is light and airy with windows overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. There is a separate dressing area connected to the bedroom with a dressing table and two closets. The living room is paneled in old cypress with exceptional light from five windows, which overlook a natural landscape and provide an unobstructed view of the water. The galley style kitchen is well-equipped and accesses a small pantry. The bathroom has a tiled shower and charming vintage washbasin. A bistro table on the deck outside the living room is ideal for outdoor dining while viewing the surrounding lush landscape and Gulf waters.

Amenities include flat screen wall HD TV, DVD, oriental rugs over beautiful oak hardwood floors in the bedroom and living room, WiFi, central heat and air, sunscreen shades in the living room and bedroom, a bedroom ceiling fan. You will enjoy the convenience of your own washer and dryer. A carport will protect your car from the Florida sun, and bikes are provided to cycle around the island. Linens, kitchen ware, a coffee maker, iron and ironing board and a vacuum are provided. The furniture combines wicker and light solid wood pieces arranged for casual comfort. The living room sofa converts to a queen size sofa bed to accommodate an occasional overnight guest. A cushioned corner window seat in the living room is surrounded by windows on two sides.

Anna Maria Island has wonderful shops and unique boutiques. There are restaurants for all tastes ranging from coffee bars to 5-star restaurants, all within easy distance driving, walking or biking.

"Old Florida" charm in the PERFECT location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first trip to Anna Maria Island, and thanks in a large part to this listing, we will be back. To start, Barbara was a gracious hostess, assuring that all was prepped perfectly for our arrival. The kitchen was appointed with all one would need for a short stay, including not only the usual pots and dishes, but also plastic wraps, paper towels and dish soap. (Having seen some former reviews where the size of the kitchen was a complaint, it is indeed a small galley kitchen. When I am on vacation, I wish to be able to make a simple breakfast, lunch and occasional dinner, and I was able to accomplish all 3 here). The bedroom is light and airy, with a ceiling fan and wonderfully comfortable king sized bed and deluxe linens. (For the more "temperature sensitive", there is both central heat and central AC). The deck overlooking the gulf was THE place to enjoy morning coffee, or an evening's glass of wine with some snacks. The walk to the beach was ~100 steps, so we spent most of our time outdoors on the cool quartz sand. (In answer to a former complaint lodged against the dogs, again, we had NO problem. Barbara lives downstairs and the dogs were well behaved. For the ENTIRE time we were there, we heard them for NO more than 5 minutes TOTAL). This is NOT a slick modern condo.It is a wonderful home in a peaceful and close-to-the-water neighborhood. If you need to relax and take in all nature has to offer on this low-key island, then THIS is your place. We are so glad to have found it!

We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the apartment was wonderful. It was clean and more like living at home than a hotel. We slept so well with that fresh ocean air breeze.

It was nice to be so close to the ocean. I also loved all the natural foliage around the apartment we rented. We loved our stay and would do it again in a heartbeat! Del and Deb January, 2017

Location! Great B.R! Charming L.R and nice deck!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in 2016 for the month of April. We were looking for an affordable place with charm and this is it!

We love the owner, who is so accommodating and she owns the empty lot next to the building...so it is only a short walk to the beach. the bedroom has a nice comfortable king size bed and the living room is charming....lots of windows in both rooms for good breezes. the bathroom is fine and the kitchen is small, and we are good cooks....

but for two of us it worked out well. there is a nice deck that overlooks the water.....after a day of beach and playing pickle ball at the Anna Maria Center, we would go down there about 3:00....and come back for a relaxing drink on the deck. the Public is close by as are lots of wonderful restaurants and you can drive or take the bus. the only reason we are not returning for 2017 is we now need a two bedroom for family coming. But for two of you, it is just wonderful and we keep in touch with the owner now as she has become our friend.

Beautiful Apartment, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay, the apartment was absolutely beautiful, very nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable, but the couch cushions need to be replaced. The kitchen is small, so don't count on cooking a big meal, but we found it adequate for our needs, who wants to cook big meals while on vacation?

The deck is a nice size and is situated at the rear of the apartment facing the water; however, the trees at the very rear of the property adjacent to the beach are taller than are pictured in the photo, so you don't see as much of the water as the photo depicts.

The beach is less than 100 steps from the apartment, and although Barbara said it had just been designated as public access, we were there on Labor Day weekend, and never did the beach get over crowded, it was just perfect.

Barbara and her dogs were very unobtrusive, we only heard one of her dogs bark one time. She offered us the use of the bikes, but the weather was too hot for us to take her up on that offer.

We loved Anna Maria Island, very quaint and well kept. No large hotels to obscure the beauty of the shoreline.

All in all we had a lovely, relaxing time and would definitely consider returning.
