About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms - Waterfront with Private Heated Pool

You want WARMTH –You want SUN – You NEED BEACH – KINGFISH is just the thing! Escape to one of Anna Maria Island’s most private sanctuaries for the senses. Bright and cheery- and so so beachy. Kingfish is in the heart of Anna Maria Island. Down a sandy path past two houses is Tampa Bay Beach plus a playground. Only a stroll north is the turquoise water of the Gulf of Mexico and famous Bean Point.

Outside is where the action is with a heated pool, a large wrap around deck plus a private dock. You will enjoy the glowing sunrise and sunsets each day, tropical breezes and if you are lucky---dolphin and manatee sightings. If the season is right, you won't have to look long for crabs, sting rays and huge snook swimming freely right off your dock! Amid flowering vines and palm fronds, is a sparkling pool. Heated with plenty of lounge chairs. Need a break from the sun? Move into the shade for some ping pong, foos ball or a cool one at the outside bar. A large dining table with eight chairs, comfy couch and double rocker plus barbeque all make entertaining al fresco a cinch. The front porch is all Florida plantation-style with porch swings and two old-fashioned rocking chairs.

The romantic and private master bedroom has a sea-blue king size four poster bed, private bathroom plus boasts a view of the Tampa Bay beach. A nautical-inspired bedroom features a queen bed with Ralph Lauren linens, a third bedroom has a king bed plus vivid coral furnishings while a fourth bedroom features pretty-in-pink twin beds. A fifth bright and colorful bedroom is furnished with a set of bunk beds and a third hall bathroom accommodates a houseful of guests and children. Each of the three adult bedrooms has a flat screen TV, plus a high definition TV, VCR and stereo in the living room. Cable, wireless and free long distance will keep you connected. Three bathrooms plus an outdoor shower makes vacationing in a group even more fun.

Bring the family or your significant other. Once you here, you'll always come back.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a great rental and Sato Real Estate is a great company to work with. I would certainly book with this rental company again. Just a couple things to note, the pool can be very shaded at certain times of the day and is rather small. However, it does get very warm when the sun hits and is secluded from the wind. This helps if the weather gets cool. It would be great if the pool lounge chairs got some cushions as they were hard to sit on. The location of the house is perfect for access to Pine Street and the local piers. We loved cruising around on a rented golf cart and enjoyed sitting on the porch with the porch swings. The house has lots of beach towels and kitchen supplies, the knife block could be updated as all the knifes were dull, just a suggestion for improvement. We really enjoyed the covered porch over the pool, this was a perfect spot to relax at the end of the day. Lots of seating in the house which was great for 8 people. Overall a great place to stay on AMI and we will return! Thanks for everything!

Utterly idyllic

  • 5 of 5

What a truly lovely house in an incredible location. The photos don't do the house justice - it's light, airy and generously proportioned, with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere - just perfect for a family holiday and the lovely touches like beautiful bedlinen and fluffy towels much appreciated. The beaches that surround are stunning and wonderful to while away time with feet in the surf, making sandcastles, or watching sunsets. Local shops and restaurants are welcoming (Sandbar and Harry's Grill our favourites) and the fact everything's so close (no need to drive) makes for an even more relaxing time. We would happily return again, and again, and again!

Perfect Family retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Anna Maria Island and we were not disappointed. We went with 3 generations of the family,youngest 16 and had the most relaxing and enjoyable experience. The location is excellent with good access to a lovely beach but the house is spacious and private. There is ample accommodation for even a large group to have their own space and the facilities provide for large family dinning round a single table, both inside and out. The Kitchen is excellently equipped and is clearly set up as someones home so is comfortable to use. We BBQ'd most nights , again really lovely surroundings for Alfresco dinning.

The pool is lovely with shade for those that require it.

Local dinning was good and travel in the area was easy with much to see. The walk around the top of the island on the beach is lovely and the variety of bird life wonderful.

All in all a lovely vacation house, even at a hottest time of the year. We will return!

Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our second trip to Anna Maria, but first to this property and I have to say that there is no better place to unwind and recharge your battery. We were delighted by the quality of our well-maintained accommodation and all the many extras that have made this house a real home from home. Plenty of space for everybody to relax, whether on the wraparound balcony, by the lovely pool or down on the dock where hours can drift by just watching the fish jumping or hoping to see an elusive manatee. The kitchen is very well equipped and we enjoyed using the large barbecue. The white sand beach is no more than two minutes away and a walk to Bean Point is a must. We hired bikes from a nearby store and explored the island and we went on a kayak tour, but best of all we would watch the amazing sunsets with a cold drink in our hands at the Rod and Reel Pier as dolphins passed nearby or rays jumped. We will certainly be back to Anna Maria and I can certainly recommend this beautiful house to anybody who is looking for a place to totally relax.

Beautiful retreat on Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing first experience of Anna Maria Island,made all the more amazing by staying at Kingfish. As recommended by friends, this house is more than home from home in so many ways. The attention to detail by the owners is so appreciated. From the tasteful decor, to sumptuous bedding, a basket of beach towels by the pool, kids toys, and a fully equipped kitchen, we really felt we were staying in a family home rather than a rental property. There's so much space both inside and particularly outside on the wrap around deck that you never feel you're ontop of eachother, which is quite hard to find for large groups. Fishing from the dock in the garden, lounging in the hot tub, cooling off in the pool, it's so amazingly relaxing. The location on the island is perfect - quiet, yet so close the beautiful Bean Point beach, the Rod & Reel Pier, and the City Pier for great fresh food and views of Tampa Bay. This place is ideal for large groups, particular families, and we would definitely like to stay in kingfish again.

Perfect Holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been back to this house a few times now because we simply fell in love with the place.

We usually arrive during the month of October when the weather has been beautiful and not too hot. We usually take over the place, staying there with the rest of our large family, who fly in from England. The accommodation is ideal for big group, and everything is so well laid out that you never feel that you are on top of one another! The house has been beautifully decorated, and you feel like you are in a home away from home!

The house is conveniently located just minutes drive/walk from the main town of Anna Maria, and you have everything on your door step e.g. the beach, restaurants and town centre/shops.

I would highly recommend this property to a large family with children. There is just so much to do each day from playing in the pool, BBQ’s, going on bike journeys, heading down to the beach, fishing, or even getting into your car and going to the nearby marine museum or crazy golf.

You will have an incredible holiday in this house and not need for anything – we will definitely be back next year.
