Overview

About the property

*THE VILLAGE OF ANNA MARIA* Bring Your Boat And Swimsuit This Home has it All!

Families or groups of friends love this big open house with plenty of room and lots of amenities! A sprawling elevated home with three bedrooms and three en suite bathrooms, this is one of those places where everyone in your group will be able to find plenty to do, while enjoying a laid-back atmosphere and lots of room to relax.

Located at the end of a deep water canal with direct access to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico beyond, boaters will welcome the opportunity to use the newly-refurbished 10,000-pound boat lift and dock. Bring a boat from home, or rent one from a local marina. The dock is also a fun place for fishing, and if you're lucky, you'll catch sight of one of our local manatees and perhaps a brand new calf! They love swimming the canals in hopes of finding someone to visit.

The living and dining areas, along with the kitchen, open onto the big front deck. In season, most guests like to keep all the French doors open for a real sense of outdoor living. The front deck is a great spot for dining al fresco while enjoying views of happy travelers out for a taste of the sun, and even a lovely view of Tampa Bay across the street. A heated pool and hot tub are perched canalside, with a large open patio that's the perfect place for a picnic. An upstairs deck overlooks this area, offering lovely views down the canal to Bimini Bay.

Inside the house on the first level you'll find a bedroom that can be made up as two twins, or as one king-size bed. Tell us when you book which you'd like, and our housekeeping staff will take care of the setup. Another bedroom at the front of the house features a daybed with trundle, along with a built-in twin on the other side of the room, a large walk-in closet, and en suite bath with walk-in shower. This bedroom has French doors that open directly onto the large front deck, allowing refreshing breezes into every corner.

Upstairs you'll find a master bedroom with a queen bed, en suite bath with walk-in shower, and a private deck boasting fabulous views over Tampa Bay and the Sunshine Skyway bridge. Be sure to watch for the big cruise ships on their way out to sea; it's fun to imagine where they might be traveling!

Ready for a salt-water swim and the feel of sand between your toes? The beautiful white-sand beach and crystal-clear waters of Tampa Bay are just across the street. The water here is shallow with a sandy bottom, so it's usually a great place to swim with children, or just float on the smooth waters. Fishermen love to wade out a distance from the shore and cast their lines, while shell-seekers know they're likely to find something special in this relatively unpopulated section of the beach. The charming Historic Anna Maria City Pier is just 200 yards down the beach.

When the shopping bug bites, or you feel like eating out, you can walk to Anna Maria's restaurants and shops, as well as the Historic Society Museum and Community Playhouse. Ready for something a bit further afield? Catch the free Island Trolley to travel the length of the Island from 6 am to 10 pm. Get off anywhere to access the Gulf beaches, walk as far down the beach as you'd like, and then catch the trolley for a ride home...all you need is shoes to get on and off the Island's favorite mode of transportation.

Sleeps 7. Small dogs considered with a non-refundable pet fee. Stays of less than one week may be available depending on time of year.

A NOTE ABOUT HEATED POOLS: Since running pool heat is a very expensive proposition for our owners, they ask that we collect $100 per week (plus tax) from guests requesting the pool at their rental property be heated.

The house smelled terrible, had cheap finishings, need TLC

  • 1 of 5

The back door had peeling paint, there were broken titles on the floor, the inside shutters to the front door were broken, the furniture was dirty, the finishings were the cheap, the house smelled of mold and mildew, light bulbs were out, the pool was dirty, and the pool lounge chairs were broken. The location was great!

Would recommend to others!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property and we loved the location. The house was clean and kitchen was stocked with nessecities and more. The MN Wild had 2 playoff games while were in town and we were pleasantly surprised to find out the cable package included a channel that the games were on!

The pool could use some attention as it was dirty but still very usable. The screen door didn't latch properly and those before us had broken the screen to improvise it's use because of it.

Loved the place though and would recommend it to others!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We do have all our pools serviced every week, but with some older pools the concrete has been stained. The water would have been clean during your visit, although we're sorry if it didn't look like it! We have noted your concern with the screen door and appreciate the recommendation. See you soon! -Candy and Ed, Owners, BeachRentals

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

Didn't know the house had long stairs to get up 😔. House needs a lot of repairs, but enjoyed ourselves. I think if we do this again it will be a main level home, hard on the back and legs for handicapped person.

Please feel free to peruse our website to look at our many one-story properties. -Candy and Ed, Owners, BeachRentals

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house. We loved the location and amenities. Though it does need some updating. The 3 bedrooms were perfect for us and our son and his friend. And the master was wonderfully furnished. I won't miss all the steps though. We should have traded with one of the boys and made one of the downstairs bedrooms ours. The pool and spa were great if old and we enjoyed fishing off the dock. The sunrises were breathtaking. We love Anna Maria Island and this house was perfect for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We love Anna Maria Island too, and are glad you enjoyed your stay. We offer plenty of one-floor properties to make your next stay more comfortable if you so desire, and try to keep our property listings accurate in describing whether there are one or multiple floors within each property. –Candy and Ed, Owners, BeachRentals

The house had everything we needed for our stay, like beach chairs and pool toys. We had a wonderful week. The house could use some updating and TLC. Master bedroom was lovely. Location was a 5 star!!!
