About Debi Wohlers and Lori Waggoner

We moved from Tampa, FL to Anna Maria Island full-time in 2011.

I was born and raised in Tampa and visited Anna Maria Island many times as a child.

After selling my computer software business in 2007, I bought a 'weekend' place in Holmes Beach in 2008. I immediately fell in love with the island and the friendliness of the locals.

It is a charming small town that I know you too will enjoy.

Debi Wohlers and Lori Waggoner purchased this house in 2013

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Loved this villa! Our first visit to Anna Maria and we will be back. The villa is in a lovely quiet area with a no noise after 10pm policy. It feels very safe & secure. It was spotless and Debi was quick to respond to any questions and accommodated a later stay on last day. The pool and garden is lovely, sunloungers super comfy. Beds are divine to sleep in. Furniture and fitting are good quality and all the finishing touches are lovely. Air con & fans keep you nice & cool.

Lovely beach nearby but preferred beaches at Bradenton. Would recommend eating at the Waterfront Restaurant it was one of the best meals I’ve had.

The duplex was very well decorated and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The only 2 downsides were that we had to leave our cat at home, and departing by 10:00 am was very difficult.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. We rented both units for our extended family and were very pleased. Both units are extremely clean, updated and will have everything you will need for a wonderful vacation or short visit. We have travelled extensively and would highly recommend these units. It is a very short walk to the beach and is a wonderful location. The pool(s) out back were very relaxing, well maintained and had an alarm on the door, if you have small children. You will not be disappointed in renting these units.

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here, what a great place, minutes from the beach and within a very short walk to bars and restaurants.

The house is beautifully kept and appointed with a great pool area, very tranquil.

We have nothing but great memories of AMI and would definitely visit again

Thank you Debi and Lori

Anna Maria Island (5 minute walk)
Car: recommended

Anna Maria Island is a quaint Barrier Island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are the main attraction here.

It is a place where 'old' Florida charm can still be found, flip flops are a way of life and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph.

High rise condos and fast food restaurants are pleasantly absent from our pristine 'get away from it all' island. Our accommodations and restaurants offer something for everyone.

From quaint cottages by the sea to deluxe suites, from million-dollar villas to rustic cottages.

One visit to Anna Maria Island and you will be calling it, 'My island in the sun'.
