About John Carney

Our family is now on its 5th generation of family members calling Anna Maria our second home. This house is truly our extended family destination and we hope you enjoy the island and our home as much as we have over the years.

John Carney purchased this house in 2002

Why John Carney chose Anna Maria Island

Walk to the most perfect beach in the US, quiet tropical street, private pool, and close to major airports.

What makes this house unique

We love having the pool in addition to the beach. Although nothing beats our great beach, its kind of nice to just hang with an adult beverage by the pool and have a BBQ with minimal hassle and convenience. But when it is beach time - 8 minutes walk and you are there, Best of both worlds. Plus we love the secluded, highly tropical feel of our street and heavy foliage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great! Fully stocked kitchen.

Great service, friendly and professional

Excellent cleanliness, kitchen items,linens, condition of appliances

We loved the property and booked it again for next year!!:)

Happy Stay on Anna Maria

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four recently stayed at this particular property, and we were very pleased with the level of comfort, amenities, and proximity to beaches, shops, and activities. The house is well-kept and nicely decorated; it is also located on a quiet street with very little traffic. The multi-level design easily allows people their own space, and contributes to a more practical and user-friendly house type of feeling. The owner was extremely helpful and informative throughout the transaction, and the local property management company was diligent in welcoming us and encouraging us to contact them if there were any concerns. There were none, but it is nice to know they were eager to help if required. We have rented property numerous times on Anna Maria, and this ranks among the best to date. We would most certainly recommend this house to others considering an Island escape.

Trip to AMI property ID 16555 May 14-21

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were very pleased with the amenities and cleanliness of the house. It's located near the center of most everything; however, tucked away on a quiet street. One caution, there are a lot of steps in the house and no elevator. If you are disabled in any way, it would be hard to stay here, but if you are not, the house is GREAT! We had a wonderful time, and will contact the Carney's again for future stays!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our second stay at John's home and it was, once again, a great vacation.

The house was cleaned very well. It is well-furnished with everything we needed - from bedding and towels, to kitchen supplies, to pool toys and beach chairs. The rooms are large and comfortable, helping you feel quickly at home. Our favorite room is the porch for lounging, keeping an eye on the pool and dining.

We had two minor needs that were resolved very quickly by the management team. We would return for a third visit, but unfortunately already booked for our dates.

Many thanks to John

This has been the best house we have ever rented before. My family loved almost everything this house had to offer. My kids enjoyed swimming in the private pool, while I spent time on the gas grill. Having the garage helped store the golf cart we rented for the week, and made it easier to keep charged. The house was very clean and well organized. I thought it was a nice touch that NFL Sunday ticket was provided through the Direct TV, because I was able to still watch my favorite football team. Since the beach carts are already provided with the house, it makes the walk to the beach easier. It took us about 7 to 8 minutes to walk to the beach from the house. The owner of the house was very helpful with answering every question I had, and answered them in a timely manner as well. Anna Maria Island is a beautiful little island, and we plan on coming back to this island every year for vacation. I do not believe this house will disappoint anybody that stays here.
