Our guests return year after year!

With excellent proximity to the beach and nearby shops and restaurants this property is ideal for all ages. The locals call the area 'the golden triangle' as you can walk from our property to the beach and walk only 5 minutes walk to the beach café serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, numerous restaurants, cocktail bar with live entertainment, the library, the post office, the bank, numerous boutiques and shops, but yet is in a quiet residential area and not the 'touristy' part of the island.

The islands grocery stores Publix and Walgreens is just 1 minute drive South with a shopping plaza with many restaurants and stores.

There is also a free trolley stop conveniently located at the end of the block that takes you all over the island, the daily service runs from 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. every 20 minutes from the Anna Maria City Pier on the north to Coquina Beach on the south. Trolleys offer both air conditioned and open-air seating. It’s safe, fun and free and an excellent way to get around and enjoy Anna Maria Island.

The property is ceramically tiled throughout. The property has three king beds, one queen bed, and four twin beds. All bedrooms have the convenience of their own cable TVs.

The private, secluded pool area is the perfect sun trap, with tropical landscaping you really know you are in paradise. The pool is ideal for the kids, with convenient ledges to sit on.

With only steps to the sugar white sand beach, the property is so convenient to pop back and forth and truly live Island style.

Enjoy the breath taking sunsets each evening from the beautiful powder sand beach. Anna Maria Island is a very special island, with its dolphins, manatees, and an abundance of wildlife, a glorious beach, magical sunsets, lush landscape and warm people.

Although quaint the Island has a fabulous choice of restaurants, excellent fishing, fishing piers, and boating and water-sports, the list is really quite endless.

So forget all your worries, kick off your shoes and please enjoy our beautiful beach home.

About Gavin Fraser

We found our piece of Paradise when we found Anna Maria Island, so much so we left our homes in Ireland and the UK to reside here. No more dreary wet weather, just great Florida sunshine. Our families and friends love this property, it has changed quite a few lives. We know it will change yours. Anna Maria is Magical!

Gavin Fraser purchased this house in 2004

Why Gavin Fraser chose Anna Maria Island

Large open spacious living and bedrooms, ideal for guests of all ages from tots to the more senior ( all on ground floor level ), large private pool/patio area and so close to the sugar sand beach. Island life could not get any better.

What makes this house unique

Ground floor level....ideal for the grandparents and tots alike.

Two kitchens and two separate living areas.....ideal for older/younger guys/girls etc etc

Very nice rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our four children and our grandchildren and really appreciated the roominess of this house. The two separate living room/ bedroom /kitchen area is great for those who are looking for a quiet place away from the group and it is also nice for little ones who need to nap during the day. The beach is beautiful and is just a 3 minute walk from the house and having the pool with little ones is also a bonus! This is a very nice, clean, well equipped house with lots of towels and beach towels. Your house is lovely and we appreciated being able to rent your home!

Great place for a big, four-generation family!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in this house - close to the beach, well-equipped, comfortable. The two living rooms allowed us to "get away" from each other (important, with a youngster, really old folks, a teen and the two generations in between!)

We made and served Thanksgiving dinner for 24 without crowding each other in the kitchens or at the tables. We plan to rent here again.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. Short walk to the beach. Great for large families. The home is very spacious and comfortable. The 2 living rooms was nice. One for the adults and one for the kids. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes and everything needed to cook and serve meals. Plenty of beach towels, towels and other linens. We have stayed in several homes on Anna Maria. This is by far the best! There were a few minor problems but they were taken care of or promised to look into. There is a small step at each entrance to home. We had to park my father-in-laws motorized chair under a overhang in the pool area. But no problem with him getting around with his walker inside. Good home for handicapped or those who have trouble getting around. could use grab bars in showers since the tile is slippery when wet and it is advertised as handicap accessible. all in all a great home. we had a wonderful vacation and will rent here again.

We Love Anna Maria Island!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 11! Everyone had their own space and privacy, and we loved the two living rooms for different tastes in TV watching or just hanging out. The kitchen and linen closet was stocked to the gills. The pool was clean and well maintained, and the beach was beautiful. We spent most days in the ocean, and most nights watching the gorgeous Island sunset! We couldn't have asked for a better house to spend our first summer on Anna Maria Island. We will be back. Thank you Gavin for your wonderful hospitality and for sharing your home with us!!

The perfect family vacation home.... Our 4th year in a row!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a hard working northern family of 14 ( 15th on the way ) and fell in love with Anna Maria Island some 10 years ago.

We were recommended this home by some friends 4 years ago....beautifully appointed and so spacious ( the interior is huge ) has everything you need with a large private sparkling pool. The quiet white sugar sand beach is just a minutes stroll to the end of the street and boy is that aqua colored sea so refreshing and relaxing.

The kitchens (yes 2 kitchens) have everything you need, the bedrooms are a larger size and the two living areas we found for the boys and one for us girls.

Our grand parents and kids found the accessability of the all tiled ground floor just perfect.

We have stayed in many vacation homes over the years but this is definately our favorite. The home owners Gavin and Shelley maintain the home themselves and are always there if needed....very comforting.

We will be back next year....our only decision is which week?

Car: recommended

The FREE island trolley runs every 20 minutes up to 10.30 at night. The nearest trolley stop is just 60 yards away....perfect for exploring the entire island with so many varied restaurants and the gorgoeus sugar sand beach and aqua gulf.
