Overview

About the property

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, BOSE BLUETOOTH AUDIO, 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.

Great property and amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed in the downstairs unit of this wonderful beach house for a week. The house has an ideal location on the quiet north end of the island. You are within walking distance to Pine and many area restaurants. The short, flat walk to the beach is very easy - especially with 3 small children. We have rented many condos are the years and this one was easily the place that provided the most amenities. There are plenty of bath towels AND beach towels to use. The laundry is shared with unit #1. I had been worried about running out of towels, but we never did! The owners provide so many towels that you have an abundance. The house was also stocked with starter toilet paper, dish soap, and hand soap in each bathroom. The kitchen has all of the dishes, pots, and pans you could need. The bedroom with twin beds was perfect for our younger children. We appreciated the toddler rails. My kids loved the toys and books! There is a shed in the backyard filled with lots of beach chairs and toys. The outdoor area with a hose to spray off sandy feet was great after a day at the beach. The owner is thoughtful and very responsive to questions. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

Relax, Refresh in Style

  • 5 of 5

Seaside Sanctuary #2 is just about perfect Actually it is perfect! Perfect location on a very quiet street that ends at a beautiful walk to the soft sands of the gulf. The home is loaded with everything you need to enjoy a week of relaxation on Anna Maria. Fully equipped kitchen, 2 TV's with DVD players and DVD's, comfortable beds and nice baths plus a very nice porch with table and chairs. The owner, Stephane, is great to work with and cares about her renters having a good time. She messaged me twice during the week to make sure everything was working well and hoped we were having a good time. This is our second time at Seaside Sanctuary #2 and we look forward to returning. Thank you Stephanie for sharing this with us.

Fabulous fourteen days!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations enjoyed staying at Seaside Sanctuary 2. The cottage is very close to a wonderful beach. We love Anna Maria and our location allowed us to walk to nearby shops and places to eat. We also biked around town. The cottage was immaculate and decorated so well. We will return.

Seaside Sanctuary #2 is exactly that: a sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this place and the owner! She always answered all of my emails and calls (yes, I called her) and she was so pleasant and wonderful!

It was amazing to hear the Gulf of Mexico with the windows open. Our 19 and 21 year old sons loved it. We rented a golf cart to scoot around in during the day, which was a BLAST! Very relaxing with WIFI and Cable TV, laundry and two full bathrooms!!! Wooo Hooo! Awesome kitchen with everything you can think of. Love the ice maker, never drank so much water in my life! lol... This is affordable, wonderful and has the feeling of "home sweet home" by the Gulf! Awesome vacation! I will never forget it! Thanks a MILLION!!! Will be back soon!!!
