About the property

Gulfside 1Br/1Ba Apartmen

Delightful private fully furnished one bedroom apartment on second floor of old Florida house located less than 100 feet from access to the white sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico. The spacious master bedroom is light and airy with windows overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. There is a separate dressing area connected to the bedroom with a dressing table and two closets. The living room is paneled in old cypress with exceptional light from five windows, which overlook a natural landscape and provide an unobstructed view of the water. The galley style kitchen is well-equipped and accesses a small pantry. The bathroom has a tiled shower and charming vintage washbasin. A bistro table on the deck outside the living room is ideal for outdoor dining while viewing the surrounding lush landscape and Gulf waters.

Amenities include flat screen wall HD TV, DVD, oriental rugs over beautiful oak hardwood floors in the bedroom and living room, WiFi, central heat and air, sunscreen shades in the living room and bedroom, a bedroom ceiling fan. You will enjoy the convenience of your own washer and dryer. A carport will protect your car from the Florida sun, and bikes are provided to cycle around the island. Linens, kitchen ware, a coffee maker, iron and ironing board and a vacuum are provided. The furniture combines wicker and light solid wood pieces arranged for casual comfort. The living room sofa converts to a queen size sofa bed to accommodate an occasional overnight guest. A cushioned corner window seat in the living room is surrounded by windows on two sides.

Anna Maria Island has wonderful shops and unique boutiques. There are restaurants for all tastes ranging from coffee bars to 5-star restaurants, all within easy distance driving, walking or biking.

Location! Great B.R! Charming L.R and nice deck!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in 2016 for the month of April. We were looking for an affordable place with charm and this is it!

We love the owner, who is so accommodating and she owns the empty lot next to the building...so it is only a short walk to the beach. the bedroom has a nice comfortable king size bed and the living room is charming....lots of windows in both rooms for good breezes. the bathroom is fine and the kitchen is small, and we are good cooks....

but for two of us it worked out well. there is a nice deck that overlooks the water.....after a day of beach and playing pickle ball at the Anna Maria Center, we would go down there about 3:00....and come back for a relaxing drink on the deck. the Public is close by as are lots of wonderful restaurants and you can drive or take the bus. the only reason we are not returning for 2017 is we now need a two bedroom for family coming. But for two of you, it is just wonderful and we keep in touch with the owner now as she has become our friend.

Beautiful Apartment, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay, the apartment was absolutely beautiful, very nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable, but the couch cushions need to be replaced. The kitchen is small, so don't count on cooking a big meal, but we found it adequate for our needs, who wants to cook big meals while on vacation?

The deck is a nice size and is situated at the rear of the apartment facing the water; however, the trees at the very rear of the property adjacent to the beach are taller than are pictured in the photo, so you don't see as much of the water as the photo depicts.

The beach is less than 100 steps from the apartment, and although Barbara said it had just been designated as public access, we were there on Labor Day weekend, and never did the beach get over crowded, it was just perfect.

Barbara and her dogs were very unobtrusive, we only heard one of her dogs bark one time. She offered us the use of the bikes, but the weather was too hot for us to take her up on that offer.

We loved Anna Maria Island, very quaint and well kept. No large hotels to obscure the beauty of the shoreline.

All in all we had a lovely, relaxing time and would definitely consider returning.

This is a quaint and beautiful property with a superb view of the Gulf. I thoroughly enjoyed my ten day stay. The property has great access to the beautiful Gulf beach. I look forward to returning to this property.

Another awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here and we will definitely be back. The location is perfect. Beautiful ocean views from the very private deck, snow white sandy beach 50 steps from the door and restaurants and shopping all within walking distance. It is the perfect place for those who like to bike with dedicated bike lanes and trails through the parks. The bed is more comfortable than my own and the unit has so much charm. We definitely recommend this rental.

tranquility and charm

  • 5 of 5

Just what we hoped it would be but better. We loved everything about this charming apartment nestled within a tropical setting. Private, clean, comfortable and old Florida elegance all rolled into one. Couples looking for a romantic getaway could search far and wide but never find a better place to stay than this lovely place.
