Step outside to enjoy a splash pool with ample seating to enjoy your lazy afternoons. Chaise lounges and tables and chairs await your dinner alfresco. Have a strawberry margarita, lemon drop or rum runner cocktail to help put you in the mood for vacation fun. It is a great sunny spot to sip your coffee in the morning too with a pastry from Ginny's & Janie's Bakery Cafe and Island Coastal Store. Evening barbecues? No problem with our pool side grill.

Take the wagon equipped with all your beach supplies, chairs, umbrella, towels, floaties and beach toys, head down to the beach three blocks away to stake your ideal spot. Enjoy the surf, beach walk, hunt for that special shell, float in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, people watch or simply dig your toes in the sand and bask in the sun. Awwhh! This is truly paradise! When you return from your beach jaunts use your private outside shower to remove the last of the days beach sand.

Our island is only seven miles long and never more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of the waves and visions of the sunset in all locations. Did I say sunsets? Every evening join the parade of parties wandering down to the Gulf to watch the magnificent sun sets. If you weren't hooked on the activities abound on the beaches by day, you will cherish the sunsets! Before you know it, you will be planning your next trip to paradise before you leave.

Anna Maria Island is known as 'An Island in the Sun'. The average temperature is 80 degrees. The island consists of 3 cities, Bradenton is the southern most, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique shops and restaurants. Anna Maria Island has seven miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions.

Hop aboard the free trolley just steps from your front door to experience a Grouper sandwich or Stone Crab at one of our local restaurants. Meander through the boutiques to look for a souvenir. The trolley runs everyday from 6am until 10:30pm. Stops are just two to four blocks apart!

Come experience 'Old Florida' life on Anna Maria Island. We can't wait to share our island with you!

About Barbara Spotleson

My brother and I purchased this property as a vacation home for our families. Our family has been coming to the island for over 45 years!

Barbara Spotleson purchased this house in 2014

Why Barbara Spotleson chose Anna Maria Island

We wanted a maintenance free home. The custom home was extremely well built by contractor Mark Kimball. We love all the extra care and amenitites Mark added to make this an amazing home.

What makes this house unique

The 12 foot plus ceilings add a spacious, comfy feeling. The two extra large showers in our baths are wonderful. The transom windows above the doors brighten up each bedroom with natural light. And who wouldn't love our beautifully landscaped yard with heated splash pool!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for everything! The house was perfect and we had a wonderful vacation. We look forward to renting from you all again!

Anna Marie Island is a great place to visit with your family, our house was great and was centrally located on the island. Everything was provided for and was very new, I would highly recommend it.

Lovely cosmopolitan home

This is not a "beach cottage". Lovely home, with a nice private grotto with a plunge pool. Nice 5 block walk to beach.

A wonderful home in an amazing place

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrrived, we felt at home. This is a wonderful property, clean, with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The owners are responsive, and reacted quickly to resolve a wifi issue we were having, which was the fault of the cable provider. We would return in a heartbeat.

So amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are just finishing breakfast on the last day of our two week vacation to the beautiful Anna Maria island, and we are so sad to leave. The Island Breeze, owned by Barbara and Steve was the most amazing vacation home, and just perfect for us. All of the fixtures, furnishings, and amenities were top notch. The home layout, with the three very separate bedrooms was very private for each of us. Not to mention how beautiful the home was! Everything is extremely well maintained, inside and out. We are already checking our calendar for next summer, so we can plan our return visit! Thank you Steve, for everything, our stay was perfect!!

Just 16 houses to the tropical powder sugar sandy beaches of Anna Maria Island. Voted number two best island for USA beaches and island vacation in 2015! Pack up your beach wagon with chairs, umbrella, towels, sand toys (all provided) and head to the beach for a relaxing day in sun and surf. Don't forget your sun screen!

Free island trolley available steps from your front door. Enjoy local seafood at world class restaurants or a simple mouth watering burger from local diners & dives. Try Beach Bistro (reservations a must) for a special dinner or Slims or Duffy's for burgers.

If shopping is your gig we have unique boutiques and gift shops spattered throughout our island. Or, take a trolley to St Armand's Circle on Long Boat Key for an afternoon of serious shopping and lunch.

Walt Disney World and Universal Studios just a two hour drive away in Orlando. Busch Gardens in Tampa and Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota.

You don't have to leave the island for live theater, check out Anna Maria City,Island Players, in their 65th season.
