About the property

Florida Island Beach House 5 Bedrooms 4 Baths 100' to the Gulf or 200' to Bay!

Enjoy the fresh air and sound of the surf from your "Sun Porch" Apartment. You will have no problem fitting into the Old Florida lifestyle in the Sun Porch's cheery and tropical decor. Watch the island time go by while you bask in the Sun and enjoy the "friends" that fly in to say "hi" - including Pelicans, Egrets and Spoonbills!

This charming apartment is just two houses down and across the street from the silky sands of Anna Maria Island's Coquina Beach. Whether it's been a fun day playing at the beach or enjoying the many shops and restaurants along Bridge Street, you will sleep in comfort in this cozy 2-bedroom, 2-bath beach apartment. The updated amenities in the kitchen make meals a breeze. Dinner or drinks can be enjoyed on the beautiful deck to enjoy views of the Gulf. In the comfy living area, relax watching the flat screen TV with cable, or keep in touch with the free WIFI.

If you venture out of the comfort of the Sun Porch, you'll find that Anna Maria has a lot to offer. Just down the street, you can ride bikes, walk, or rent a Segway to tour the many trails and preserves that explore this lovely Island. There is a free Island Trolley that runs from early to late to help with your adventuring. At the end of this one-block-wide stretch of Island, you will find a dock to launch kayaks, as well as a place to cast your bait if you get a Florida Fishing License. There are wonderful bistros, homemade ice cream flavors, waterfront dining choices, lots of great seafood restaurants, and great shopping on the North End of the Island on Pine Street, as well as St. Armands Circle on the South end. You will always find something to do, or you can choose to do nothing at all - that is the fun and beauty of Anna Maria Island.

Once you return home, you'll find that the back patio is a tropical oasis, with Tiki tables and chairs for picnics and happy hour. After the sun sets, lay back on the porch chairs for stargazing at its finest. Welcome to Sun Porch and Anna Maria Island. You may never want to leave.

It was clean, comfortable & well equipted with everything we could ever need including toys for the beach. Our favorite was being able to see the gulf from the kitchen window & porch in the mornings. Of course being able to walk across the street & we were on the beach. Also, it is walking distance to shops & resturants. It was a quiet & family friendly home & neighborhood. We loved it & would definately stay there again & recommend it for others to stay.

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

I hate to say how wonderful this beach cottage was Bc I want to keep this gem hidden; however I will take the higher road and say this place is THE PERFECT place for a relaxing getaway. The decor was so relaxing that we left our busy life behind once we entered the cottage. The color scheme together with the beach accents and the cooing of the doves contributed to the relaxing ambiance. We will definitely return. The only drawback was it is not pet friendly but I'm sure our canine companions enjoyed their doggy retreat as well.

Große Baustelle direkt gegenüber am Strand

  • 1 of 5

Wir waren im Oktober für eine Woche im Apt Sun Porch. Im Vorfeld gab es schon einige Schwierigkeiten mit der Agentur Moby Beach Rental. Die Kommunikation verlief äußerst schleppend und immer wieder nur auf unsere Nachfrage hin.

Als wir eintrafen und das Apt betraten, lagen direkt in der Küche zwei tote Kakerlaken auf dem Boden. Natürlich wissen wir auch, das in Florida Kakerlaken absolut alltäglich und auch in gründlich gereinigten Häusern auftauchen können. Trotzdem wäre es netter gewesen, die toten Tiere vorher noch aufzufegen.

Ansonsten war das Apt sauber und auch schön und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Lediglich die Terrassenmöbel sind schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen und die Sitzpolster allesamt recht schmierig und abgesessen.

Das größte Ärgernis ist aber leider die Tatsache, das direkt am Strand, genau gegenüber vom Apt eine riesige Baustelle ist. Ab 7 Uhr morgens ist dort schweres Gerät unterwegs. Es wurden während unseres Aufenthaltes riesige Stahlträger in den Boden gerammt bzw gehämmert. Ein paar Meter weiter südlich ist eine weitere Baustelle und der freie Strandabschnitt dazwischen wird als Baufahrzeugsstraße benutzt. Die direkte Strandlage, wegen der wir genau dieses Apt gebucht haben, war also ein reiner Witz. Der Chef der Agentur hat unsere Beschwerde vom Tisch gewischt.. Seine Aussage war, das er uns ja nichts versprochen hätte, wir uns über etwaige Bautätigkeiten ja vorher hätten informieren können und ja mit dem Auto auch zu einem anderen Strand fahren könnten. Er hat mit seiner total unprofessionellen und unfreundlichen Art die ganze Geschichte für uns nur noch ärgerlicher gemacht. Von daher würden wir bei dieser Agentur nie wieder buchen und auch das Apt nicht empfehlen.
