Villa Maria is a one-of-a-kind, luxury (but comfortable), 4 bedroom/3 bath home in the center of Anna Maria Island. Please check with us for permission if you have a small dog you would like to bring along! Centrally located on the island in Holmes Beach, you are only a 2 minute stroll to the beach (with a life guard) or to the free trolley service that will take you to most places on the island within just a few minutes’ drive. You are also within walking distance to the Publix grocery store and many other shops and restaurants. Anna Maria Island Beach Café is just across the street on the Beach which offers a GREAT breakfast. You can enjoy your meal while sitting with your toes in the white sand of Anna Maria! Try their all you can eat pancakes or go for scrambled eggs, bacon and fries washed down with limitless cups of coffee. They also offer entertainment in the evenings AND have rental equipment for all of your beach needs! All the conveniences are close but Villa Maria is located at the end of a closed street so you can still maintain your privacy and seclusion in this great island getaway. From the deep, rich cherry wood flooring and cabinetry throughout the house to the lush tropical pool, this home has it all. There are beautiful crown moldings, classic looking ceiling fans, beautiful tiles and an elevator that travels from the bottom floor garage up to the third floor lookout tower.

The home is laid out on one floor making it a flowing and livable space with a great kitchen boasting granite countertops and stainless appliances. The cabinets are fully equipped with dishes, pots, pans, silverware and small appliances so you can prepare anything from a light meal to a full evening dinner party. Bringing the groceries in is easy, just use the elevator. You can also take the stairs or the elevator to the tower terrace that has views of the surrounding island and glimpses of the beach and the gulf! Enjoy an evening cocktail while catching one of the amazing sunsets that Anna Maria is famous for! (In the unlikely event that the elevator becomes inoperable, please keep in mind the stairs will be the only entry to the living area of the home.)

The King Master Bedroom is spacious with a wet bar and fridge and the master bath is en suite with a Jacuzzi tub and glass shower with 7 shower heads! The 1st guest room has a Full Bed with adjoining bath with a glass shower/tub combination. The 2nd guest room has two twin beds and the bath boasts a walk-in shower. Let’s not forget about the 'Tower Shaped' Double guest room with its unique design! With a Queen pull-out couch in the living area there is plenty of room for everyone!

Villa Maria also boasts a large, furnished terrace overlooking the pool with sliding glass doors that can completely enclose the area, which makes for a very comfortable space on a cool evening or leave them open to enjoy the tropical pool and the soothing sounds of the waterfall. Enjoy the flat screen TV while you are grilling out and relax under your own tiki hut with your meal!

Villa Maria offers simply everything you need for a high end, Anna Maria Island experience but with that Home-Away-From-Home feel.

                                                                Great place to stay!

                                                                The house was clean and in good condition. Less than a 5 minute walk to the beach! Across the street is a CVS and a grocery store. Everything you need is within walking distance. I would recommend this property to friends and family. We enjoyed treats from two scoops ice cream and cupcake delights (both were very yummy). The grouper taco's at the Ugly Grouper were fantastic!

                                                                Owner's Response:


                                                                Thank you for your review on Villa Maria, I’m glad you found our home to be a great place to stay! Villa Maria is conveniently located near shopping and several restaurants plus there’s a nearby free trolley-stop for exploring other parts of the Island. Cupcakes Delight is a guilty pleasure of mine! The Ugly Grouper is a fairly new addition to our Island that has nightly entertainment and some fun games. Thanks again for recommending Villa Maria to family and friends and we would love to have you back as our guests!

                                                                There are so many good things to say about this property...

                                                                The location made walking to food, groceries, the beach, and entertainment incredibly accessible. The house itself is furnished well. There were plenty of towels, and every thing was clean on our arrival. The pool area is certainly one of the highlights of the property. The waterfall and landscaping make for a relaxing space, and where we spent the majority of our time.

                                                                The management of the property and communication leading to our visit was excellent.

                                                                Thank you for taking the time to review Villa Maria. I’m glad that you found our home to be tropical and convenient. We strive to make Villa Maria a nice relaxing place for family and friends to stay while exploring this beautiful Island. We also enjoy being so close to everything and find ourselves hardly ever using the car. Ellie, Bob and Suzanne are great at helping our guests and would love to hear from you when planning your return trip.

                                                                AWESOME STAY!

The location was superb steps away from an awesome beach and the neighborhood was excellent for family relaxation.

                                                                We loved the home it was spacious and had everything my family needed and more!!!

                                                                My son had an awesome birthday, and im glad the elevator was there because my mom definately used it after her leg injury.

                                                                Thank you for reviewing Villa Maria, I’m happy you and your family had an awesome stay at our home! It’s nice to hear that Ellie, Suzanne and Bob were able to help you out on such short notice so your son could enjoy a wonderful birthday memory. Happy belated birthday to your son and here’s to a quick recovery for your mom!

                                                                Beautiful Home, Perfect Location

                                                                Lisa W.

                                                                The home was gorgeous and the bus & trolley stops are next to the house. Grocery stores are right across the street and the beach is a block away. Don't be alarmed, the property feels secluded from the busy street by having a privacy wall. There were pool toys and floaties for my 2 year old daughter to play with in the pool and our family had a great time.

                                                                Owner's Response:


                                                                Thank you for reviewing Villa Maria, I’m glad you enjoyed our home and its perfect location! Besides being so close to the beach and walking distance to shopping and restaurants, our home is equipped with everything a family needs when on vacation. There is a beach umbrella, beach chairs and a beach cart for our guests’ convenience. Guests often leave behind toys and floats and out management team keeps them there when in good condition. Thanks again for your review and please do not hesitate to reach out to Elle, Bob and Suzanne next time you stay on Anna Maria!

                                                                Best trip ever!

                                                                Matt M.

                                                                This was the best vacation I have ever taken. My family and I really enjoyed the calm relaxing view, location and island feel. Everyone was helpful, friendly and the house itself was fantastic. I think it was one of our best trips as a family we have ever taken. The pool was perfect for our son, it was heated and safe! It was private too. Lots of sun and then shade to offer as well when it's too hot. The beach is also right there, which my wife enjoyed because we could just walk to it, instead of having to pack up everyone and drive. The island food is amazing! We would come back and highly recommend.

                                                                Owner's Response:


                                                                Thank you for reviewing Villa Maria and I’m glad that our home played a role in your best vacation ever! The view from the lookout tower can be very relaxing especially during sunset. One of the many great things about Anna Maria is that people enjoy sharing their experiences and recommendations with each other, we also are lucky to have Ellie, Bob and Suzanne to help with their local expertise. Another draw is the fantastic choice of restaurants, some just a short walk away and other via the free trolley just a block from our home. We look forward to hearing from you again and thank you for recommending Villa Maria!

                                                                Spectacular home & vacation experience!

                                                                This was an amazing experience and beautiful place to stay! I brought my 1.5 year old and my husband. We were able to enjoy the home, that was safe, child-proof and fun for my family. The pool was my little babies favorite, heated and great. He distance to the free trolly and beach was perfect - all we needed was a light stroller and we were there in less than 7 minutes walking. Then we toured the Island. The people are friendly, the places are unique, inexpensive but classy! We had such an amazing visit. I would highly recommend this to others. In fact I did, and several coworkers have already looked into booking this property for their next family getaway! This was a great place to go, and I'd surely come again, especially to the beaches because the sand is soft and the water is perfect!
