Overview

Anna Maria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Read our Feedback, 100% POSITIVE. This is without a doubt the CLEANEST and BRIGHTEST vacation rental you will find on the island! This beach bungalow is the GROUND FLOOR UNIT of a beach front duplex. (The 2 bedroom upper level unit is available as VRBO #260347)

Welcome to paradise! ANNA MARIA ISLAND is the first of the barrier islands located along Florida's Gulf Coast. It is about 7 miles long and 1/2 a mile wide. It is known for beautiful beaches, breathtaking sunsets and a boat load of really nice people. The number one activity in the area is to DO NOTHING AND RELAX ON THE BEACH.

This charming BEACH HOUSE is tucked away on a VERY QUIET STREET in the sleepy north end of the Island. It is the 2ND HOUSE FROM THE BEACH with no roads to block access. If you open your bedroom window at night, the only sound will be the rolling surf on the beach. This is truly the BEST LOCATION on the Island.

Your front door is less than 30 seconds from the most PRISTINE BEACH in Florida. The sand is like powdered sugar. It never gets hot on your feet because it is 99% PURE QUARTZ. The water is warm and shallow. The fishing is excellent. The SANDBAR RESTAURANT is a 5 minute stroll down the beach.

The unit is light and bright with a multitude of windows. Everything has been recently updated in a fun coastal decor featuring hand painted starfish on the walls. Featured amenities include a 47' Flat Panel HIGH DEFINITION TV with BLUE RAY DISC player and a great selection of movies, IPOD DOCKING STATION, and LIGHTNING FAST WI FI INTERNET. Some key features include PEEKS OF THE GULF, Mediterranean Style TERRAZZO Floors. The gourmet kitchen has GRANITE countertops, STAINLESS appliances and a MARGARITAVILLE FROZEN CONCOCTION MAKER.

Please DON'T HESITATE TO CALL or email with any questions. Book early because the premium dates will fill up fast. With its ultra premium location and brand new amenities, this is the BEST VALUE on the vacation rental market!

About Stephanie

Originally from Minnesota, my husband and I moved here with our children to live the dream. That dream being, residing in a small beach community with pristine beaches and powdered sugar sand. Safe, quiet streets, and a great sense of community.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2004

Why Stephanie chose Anna Maria Island

We purchased this home 100% because of its location. The property is located on a quiet dead end street and is only a few steps to one of the most pristine beaches in the world.

Clean, comfortable, great kitchen and bathrooms! just a beautiful gem!

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was beautifully decorated and equipped! We loved the proximity to the beach. We also enjoyed sitting on the adirondock chairs enjoying the tropical breeze. We will return to this quaint treasure on Anna Marie Island! Stephanie was a great communicator. ⛱🏝🌊🌴

Amazing Time... Week went too fast!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time and the beach was beautiful! The bottom unit was perfect and the ac was nice and cool at all times! We definitely enjoyed the outdoor shower to rinse off after the beautiful days spent on the beach. All amenities worked great.

If I were to have any feedback would be the walk to the beach through the sand dune! Was a little rough pulling the cooler and canopy but hey, it was a great daily workout. Also, the police were out and about throughout the day so bring plenty of plastic cups for your "beverages".

Check out this video I made showcasing our visit to the property, beach, and captivating Anna Maria island. Finally, a special thanks to the owner Stephanie for quickly answering any questions we had before, during, and after our visit:

Great Experience on Our Favorite Beach

  • 5 of 5

We're already fans of Anna Maria, so that part is a given. As mentioned numerous times, Stephanie is an excellent host. The house is very well stocked with essentials to the point that our normal packing routine had us doubled up on many small items (hint: read about what's provided better than i did), the details are well taken care of in the house. We were worried about space, but the 3 BR/2 BA setup was perfect for two couples and 3 small children. Probably wouldn't want to push it much further, but it's an excellent layout for that many or less. Being at the end of the street simplified getting to the beach without crossing roads/traffic etc, and the walk is easy without much gear, but a little tougher if you're dragging a bunch of beach junk (which of course we are) at about 500 feet or so to the water. The house is great, the beach is excellent in this area and of course the owners are also great. Parking is provided for two vehicles (each per unit) and wasn't a big deal even with two Suburbans backed in. Being on the north end of the island is well worth it and don't skip the nearby doughnut shop. We're already planning to come back to the great spot and you won't regret staying here either.

great place great landlord

  • 5 of 5

had a very nice time. place is well taken care of. best part of the stay was that the obnoxious crowds of spring breakers and snowbirds were mostly gone.

recommend this place, but be aware that this anna maria island is getting as crowded as the southeast coast of florida -miami /ft lauderdale

or california with traffic and mobs. they've loved it to death. and its worse every year.

nice house good landlord. as described.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What a great sanctuary! Clean, tastefully decorated and a very modern kitchen--even though we were not there to cook!

So thoughtfully furnished--nothing else was needed. Great beach area. Quiet and convenient area.

Hope to vacation here again. THANK YOU.
