About Frederick Sullivan

I bought this property in 2013 and spent the next 2 years completely renovating the entire duplex.

Frederick Sullivan purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Frederick Sullivan chose Anna Maria Island

After living here for 5 years ,I wanted to be sure I could stay here in this house . It's on an unusually quiet street , really close to the beach and just very convenient to everything on the island . This is a very cool island and this is a comfortable place to stay

A quiet oasis that a small family can enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED everything about this place! The apartment was decorated tastefully, all modern updates, immaculate, and very comfortable! We traveled with our two teenage boys for spring break 2017, and all of their needs were also met. The pool was absolutely fantastic and Fred is the most gracious host! We took advantage of every single thing in his storage room, from the beach cart, boogie boards, bikes, fishing pole, coolers, multiple chairs, and umbrellas. It was an easy walk to a very beautiful section of the beach! The location is great for getting to any place on the island quickly.

Although it's technically an "apartment", it didn't feel small to us. The weather was amazing, so we took advantage of the outdoor space on the deck with two comfortable chairs, as well as the pool area.

My only regret is that we didn't get to spend much time with Fred, because he's a very friendly man, with lots of knowledge about the island! It was very nice having him next door, and it gave my kids a sense of security and respect for his property knowing he was there.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

His property is well maintained and beautiful. His flowers and palms gorgeous. Pool area private.

  • 5 of 5

A home away from home. The interior is very comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed. When arriving guests are greeted with fresh flowers and a bottle of nice wine. Fred himself is friendly and gracious to his guests and he offers suggestions of the best places to eat. The beach is a close walk and he provides anything you might want for a perfect beach day. This is my second stay and I will be returning again as I call it 'my happy place'.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Fred's lovely home. Equipped with everything one could possibly need and so clean! Fred tries to meet all needs of his guests - he even has two coffee makers - a Keurig and a Braun machine! The private pool was immaculate with well cared for and lovely landscaping. Everything was provided for a day at the beach including a cooler, beach chairs and chaise loungers, 2 adult bikes and great big, fluffy beach towels. Great location - a short walk to the beach. Quiet side street, off the main road. Fred is such a great guy! Responds almost immediately to all Home Away emails. Never left a question or concern unanswered! We already made our reservations to return here next year! Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us, Fred! It was very hard to leave!

Everything we needed, clean and great location

  • 5 of 5

This unit was nicer than the pictures. Kitchen was great and already had some spices, oils, vinegars and bread crumbs. Beds were comfortable and walk in shower in master bath was nice and roomy. Fred was a great host and ready to provide anything we needed for the unit. Pool was nice and warm. We ate lunch at the table by the pool as well. We were a quick walk to a beautiful quiet Beach and Fred provided chairs, umbrellas and other Beach items as well as a cart to transport them in. There were bicycles available to ride which we used to explore the island. Peaches was our favorite breakfast place, Starfish seafood our favorite sea shack by the sea and Feast our favorite restaurant for the grouper sandwich. Will be back to Anna Maria Island.
