About Claire

After many trips to Anna Maria Island we decided that it was time to commit to this beach paradise and buy a home. Years of enjoying our days on the perfect beaches, lunches on the pier, sunset champagnes with phenomenal fine dining and great nights socializing with the locals made this comfy beach town a part of us. And as our family has grown we wanted a place where we could relax, rejuvenate and that we could explore with our friends and kids.

Just recently we have had the good fortune of being transferred to the island permanently. We have been lucky enough to meet some wonderful people since arriving and a few of them are the owners of this property. They have been kind enough to entrust me with the rentals of this beautiful home and I am thrilled to have the job!

We hope that you will find this little piece of paradise as welcoming as we do.

Claire purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Claire chose Anna Maria Island

The beach & the backyard. It's tough to find a house in this location with all the amenities this house has to offer. Because this home has 2 bedrooms on the main level it is accessible for all ages. (please note there are 5 steps up into the house and 5 steps down to the pool level in the back yard). The Master Suite is half a floor up and very private. With so many children likely to visit, the owners wanted a home where they could run around without worrying about stairs or not being able to see what they were up to. They also recognize that adults like a little bit of privacy.

Many 'snow birds' appreciate the convenience of staying in a ground level home. It is a luxury that is slowly disappearing as 2-storey homes take over the rental market. The interior finishing's are all top of the line. You will appreciate the luxe bedding and linens and well stocked kitchen. The mattresses are top of the line. We can promise sweet dreams. Another huge benefit of this property is the backyard -with a large pool and great lounge area the backyard has sun throughout the day -any time of year! This yard is truly a tropical paradise. Enjoy!

What makes this townhome unique

Anna Maria Island is a haven for relaxing. We have tried to make everything available that you might possibly need so that you can simply enjoy yourselves, but if it's not there, then it is most likely just around the corner. Enjoy the sand, sun, sitting by the pool or on the beach or even doing some work (it so often crops up) but mostly do just what you want in a great environment.

Great house- excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great a great time in Anna Maria Island and the house was fantastic! We couldn't have ask for better managers or owners. The house was clean. They were flexible and understanding with us. The house is a great layout. The pool area is fun. The pool is a perfect place to go after a day at the beach and there is an outdoor shower. The house has all the amenities you need and they are in great condition!

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an awesome time. I loved the location of this house, right in the middle of the island and near a trolley stop. Its easy to get anywhere on the island, either by walking or taking a ride. The house also has bikes which is very convenient. There is a short walk to the beach too. The pool area was amazing, we spent hours playing in the pool. The house was set up kinda cool, the master bedroom was up and away from everything else which provides a nice little getaway if you need it. Everything was provide from dishes to beach and pool toys. The baby gate came in use as there are stairs in the house (maybe one more could be provide because of the 2 sets of stairs) and we used the pack n play and highchair. We are glad the house had all of baby equipment available. Claire was easy to work with and was available all the time. Glad we got to experience this house and can't wait to go back to Holmes Beach next year.

excellent place! loved it

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised that this place was just as nice, if not better than the pictures and our expectations. The check in process is great, no lines, no waiting. The place I very nicely decorated, and amazingly clean for a rental. The owners provide a cart, toys, chairs, and everything you need for the beach. The beach is a short walk away and a beautiful area that never felt crowded. The pool is amazing, great size and the hot tub was nice to have. The owners are super responsive to questions and other needs and are local to the area. Thanks for sharing your property with us. We had an amazing time!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property was immaculate, up to date and had absolutely everything you need. It's only about a 2-3 minute walk to the beach and they supply the wagon and other beach items to get you to the beach. We enjoyed the beach during the day and the lovely pool at night. The spa was awesome and just nice to kick back and relax. Anna Maria Island is a treasure and easy to get on and off the trolley but if you bring your cars, there is plenty of parking space.

Fabulous Vacation Home for our Family!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this new amazing property for the Best Family vacation we have ever been on. The owner and property managers were so kind and accommodating! Taking advantage of a few days off school we decided to visit Florida. The photos of this property sold us on renting the townhouse, but upon arrival the home was even beyond our expectations. The home is brand new and beautiful! The kitchen, dining, and living area is a great open space, we loved spending our mornings and evenings all together. The bedrooms are all amazing, two with king size beds, and a 3rd perfect for the kids with a twin bunk over a double bunk. But, the most amazing and most used space by our family was the outdoor patio with the BEST pool and hot tub we have ever had the privilege of using. The pool was amazing! It was heated perfectly, perfect on a cooler FL day, with a large shallow step, and a great seating area with a built in table. The hot tub was large and perfect for warming up after a long swim and especially in the cool evenings! One other thing we loved about staying at this home was the Anna Maria Island trolley, which we used as our sole transportation around the island (the few times we could drag ourselves away). We hope to return here every year and enjoy the great family time we experienced at this amazing home!

Florida's Best Kept Secret

This perfect picture postcard kind of place moves at a very slow pace. Often know as Florida's best kept secret, Anna Maria Island sits at the southern tip of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico and is perched north of Longboat Key. Leave the car at home and travel the island by trolley bus. Cycle or walk to your favorite watering hole to enjoy the sunset. Stay at one of the many condominiums and vacation rental homes scatted around the Island. There are no high rise buildings in this area, just houses with the “Old Florida” feel, in neighborhoods that are not far from the water’s edge. A kayak or fishing boat is the favored transportation for exploring the inlets and canals that shelter Snook and Redfish beneath age old fishing docks. With and average temperature of 75 degrees, this year round attraction with its laid back feel is the place to relax, soak up the sun and enjoy the delights of some of the award winning restaurants. The beaches of Anna Maria Island are some of the best on the Gulf Coast. Not for just the soft sugar white sands and the rich turquoise blue water but the most incredible sunsets that this part of the world is famous for.

Manatees and Dolphins

Wildlife is in abundance everywhere you look. Stroll the shore and look for the occasional Manatee and Bottlenose Dolphin just beyond the waves. Wild Parrots can be heard chattering from the trees or see them fly past in droves searching for a safe place to perch. In the summer months Turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. Herons will wait close to the fisherman ready to steal bait from his bucket of pinfish and shiners. Pelicans sit patiently in the Mangroves and perch on the deck post waiting for fish to swim by. Sit for a while in the shade beneath the Australian Pines, sea oats dancing in the wind, Terns and Sandpiper run between the surf, hungry for crabs and crustaceans.

Take the Trolley with its complimentary fare as it travels the full length of this island, 7 miles in length, stopping at popular spots on the way. Picture Galleries display wonderful renderings from local artists. Holmes Beach Captain’s moor their vessels at Catchers Marina and couples walk the plaza shops looking for a souvenir to save the memory.
