New stainless sink, new faucets, new soaking tub, sinks, faucets, lights, Italian tile, designer decor, high end beds & mattresses stove/oven. Upgraded refrig/freezer. Virtually every kitchen tool, like home, making Kitchen fully stocked. Everything is MINT, MINT, MINT CLEAN!
This vacation home even has UV air purification! We try to offer the little things knowing that you have a lot of choices. We think you will agree, all the little things we offer, add up to make a big difference. We hope these differences will help you reach the decision to rent from us!
Dislike chemicals in your water?? This vacation home has a $3000 water purification system to filter out impurities as well as chlorine from the water! You will immediately notice smoother skin and fuller hair when compared to any other vacation rental without water purification on the island!
Entire home has tile floors in every room including lanai!
Screened lanai with sliding glass windows & doors for those chilly nights.
Rate includes; unlimited calling anywhere in USA & Canada. SECURE Wi-Fi. You have your own password for your secure NON shared WiFi! Digital cable, 46' plasma TV/DVD & flat screens in both bedrooms. Master also has DVD.
We are on the most sought after and narrow part of the island. You will love our white powder sand beach just around 50 steps away in one direction. Enjoy clear turquoise water! Walk along the beach just a short way and stop at the great restaurants & live entertainment right on the water. If you like fishing, we have a dock just 40 steps away too in the other direction. FISHING GEAR INCLUDED TOO!
If you like going for walks, there is a marvelous paved trail across our street that goes for about 2 miles, or so, along the beach. This is a great paved boardwalk to walk or bike along every day especially around sun set! The trail is covered by weeping pines & palms and is simply breathtaking.
Just a quick walk down the road is The Coquina Baywalk at Leffis key where you will enjoy acres of boardwalks built along the Bay. Spectacular scenery.
You will enjoy a wide variety of restaurants all within walking distance incl our favorites on the Pier. Last time eating out on the pier we saw 3 dolphins & a Manatee!

The furniture in this home is top of the line and includes,Tommy Bahama, Pier1 and, decor includes genuine local wall art.
Unlike other owners who try to handle their vacation rental from another country or, may be at risk of bank foreclosure, or, may have their vacation rental for sale, or may have a management company, who have 1000 other rentals to handle, we are nearby most of the year and own property free and clear of bank mortgage. This property is not for sale and you won't receive a call a week before your arrival date to tell you it's sold. If there is an unforeseen problem we are very responsive and handle the problem personally with a sense of urgency. Our goal is to provide you with a great vacation so that like over 50% of our guests, you return again! Have peace of mind when you rent from us.
Anna Maria Island
Anna Maria island is just seven miles long and is made up of 3 small cities: Bradenton Beach,
Holmes Beach, & Anna Maria at the north. No matter which direction you come, you must cross water
via a bridge. At the southern tip is the most sought after area of Bradenton Beach. You can head north from Sarasota travel on to Longboat Key and cross over a draw bridge on to Bradenton Beach. There are also two other draw bridges from the main land of Bradenton to come onto Anna Maria island. One way is via Manatee Avenue (SR 64 ) & the other is via Cortez Road.
Watch an incredible sunset with your favorite beverage. Kids of all ages would enjoy a visit to Bradenton to see Snooty the manatee. The area of Manatee/Sarasota counties also has great off shore fishing, jet skiing, kayaking, golfing, tennis, shopping, museums, & art galleries to explore.
Be sure to observe all the turtle watch rules as the Ridley turtles are building nests from early May & baby turtles are hatching on our beaches. You might even go on a turtle watch tour with our local turtle lady. Look in the paper for her schedule.
The entire island of Anna Maria has many reasonably priced award winning restaurants.I.e., the Sign of the Mermaid Restaurant has not only delicious food as in breakfast, lunch, but the owner is a triple time National Pie contest winner. Be sure and stop by.
Of course, check out the local newspaper for the latest events about the island. The A.M.I. SUN is just one. It's free & had lots of info you can use on current happenings.
Holmes Beach is famous for the Beach Cafe, Skinny's a small local hamburger, hotdog storefront plus along Gulf Drive you will locate the island grocery store, Publix and several island strip centers with your last minute beach items such as snacks, lotions, toys, rentals, etc.
OFF THE ISLAND
Mote Science Lab is just a short drive off the island and on to Longboat Key just a few miles to the south. Both you and your kids will enjoy a visit to this 'hands on' science stop. This is where many of the rescued injured animals, occasional birds, turtles, etc are taken to recuperate and then are returned to nature.
ESPECIALLY for kids:
G WIZ is located in Sarasota near the VanWizzel a block off of Tamiami. This is a state of the art Science hands on museum. Well worth the visit. Check it out on line to see what they are featuring. Call for cost.
Disneyworld, Epcot Center, the Everglades, visit close by Sarasota (the cultural center of Florida) with the Ringling Museum, Saint Armand's, and much more!
It's just a 15 minute drive to St. Armands circle. Designer shops and world renowned restaurants just a few examples of what you will experience.
