About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath, Canal front, Saltwater Pool, only minutes to the Beach

This beautiful canal front home is located on a quiet street in the exclusive north end of Anna Maria Island. The tastefully decorated 3 bedrooms, 3 baths home was updated in 2004 and sleeps up to 8 people. The home is a block to Tampa Bay and three blocks to the sugar sand beach on the Gulf. It’s also just two blocks to the quaint shopping and restaurants of Pine Avenue and the City Pier.


The back yard is your own private piece of paradise. The salt water pool is nestled among native palms, sea oats and mangroves for a very private experience. You’ll have your choice of two dining areas, a gas grill, and chaise lounges in the sun or the shade.

It’s a short trip on boat or kayak from the dock to Bimini Bay, Tampa Bay, Egmont and Longboat Keys, and the Gulf of Mexico. There are a number of waterfront restaurants close by where you can dock and enjoy a great meal.

If watercrafts aren’t your thing, the dock in your back yard is also a great place to fish, or just to sit and enjoy a beverage, watch the mullet jump and see the seabirds skim the water. In the winter months, it's not unusual to see dolphins and manatees cruise by.

If you must leave the island, the nearby Sarasota / Bradenton area is known for the arts, dining, shopping and baseball Spring training. Less than an hour North over the Skyway bridge is Saint Petersburg, with its Baywalk and Dali museum, and a little further North over the causeway puts you in Tampa with its own arts, sports and history, and a great Aquarium.

Whatever you choose to do – this beautiful home and Island is a great place to do it – or to just relax and do nothing at all.

Why Giovanna chose Anna Maria Island

Florida's west coast beaches have always been our favorite ones, and when we visited Anna Maria for the first time we immediately fell in love with it. The easy going life style of the island, sugar sand beaches, dolphins, manatees, birds! A year later we were living in PARADISE!

What makes this house unique

We loved the location of the home mainly because of the quite street. It's very secluded yet close to everything. We lived just a short time at Tarpon, and hope to come back and enjoy the island again.

The things that I miss about AMI are: Sunrise walks on the beach (all the way to the tip of the island), sunsets out on our dock, the residents and of course people like you that come to explore this beautiful place.

We are so blessed to have a place here and be able to share it with you.

Please treat yourself and enjoy AMI while you are at our Tarpon home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you all for a wonderful week at the house on Tarpon. Everything was wonderful You made it very easy for us from the time we booked the house, arrived at the airport with directions, getting the the key, having the boat delivered,and finding that the house was better than we expected.

We hope to return to Anna Maria Island in the future and will contact you for our stay

Gorgeous home-- perfect for trip with extended family

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Anna Maria island and we couldn't possibly have picked a better place to stay if we tried. We were traveling with three small children and four adults and we all fit very comfortably.

The pictures don't do it justice. When we walked in, the house was beautifully decorated for the holidays, completely spotless. Amenities galore- toys for the pools, toys for the beach, things like coffee filters, every possible item you would need in the kitchen. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the layout of the house was perfect. All one floor but spread out enough that everyone had space when needed. The pool was warm and the dock was great. We rented a 25 ft pontoon boat and it fit no problem. Many restaurants close by, shopping close, as well as the general store. The free trolley stop was about two blocks away and takes you anywhere you want to go, including Publix, which was super helpful. The beach was a five minute walk away and it was a gorgeous beach! Can't imagine staying anywhere other than this house on our next visit.

Excellent Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this home and all of us loved absolutely everything about this home and our stay on Anna Maria Island. The home is very clean and modern, well equipped, comfortable, quiet and spacious. You can walked to everything; beaches on both the gulf and the bay, shopping, stores, restaurants! The swimming pool is great! Cooking fresh caught seafood on the grill was as good as it gets. Anna Maria Island is a very safe, friendly and relaxed place. Enjoy your stay!

So perfectly perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed just short of a month here, and there are just no faults!

Giovanna ia welcoming & attentive (she even offered to meet us at the house when we arrived).

Any queries we had were answered really swiftly, which is always really helpful.

The house is amazingly done out, with every comfort and detail you need - from beach towels & equipment, to high speed WiFi & a great TV package.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are very spacious, and there is enough space in the house that you don't feel 'on top of each other' at all.

The outside is so private and the garden is not looked over by anyone. The pool is a great size for all.

Must rent!

Beautiful island villa in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at Villa Tarpon on lovely Anna Maria Island. The house was just as described, very spacious and well furnished. Every amenity you would need including a beach cart, chairs etc and lots of pool towels, sun loungers, patio furniture and pool toys. The pool was super and bigger than it looks in the photos. The sun shines all day on the pool area and you can find shade under the palm trees in the lovely garden if you need it. The outside space is a really nice place to chill out and relax and the photos don't do it justice. The garden backs on to the water and there is a boat dock where we tried our hand at fishing, we saw lots of snook and even a manatee one day.

The house is very clean, well maintained and extremely comfortable, we had no issues at all. Giovanna was a delight to deal with from start to finish, very helpful and always answered our emails quickly. There was lots of local information and recommendations provided and the wifi worked well ( important for teenage sons!)

The house location was perfect, it was an easy walk to the gulf beach or the bay and the local restaurants. We really liked Harry's Grill and Slims Place and the quirky Ginnys and Jane Es.

We would 100% recommend Villa Tarpon and look forward to staying there again in the future.

Thank you Giovanna for sharing your beautiful villa.
