About Debi Wohlers

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 purchased this house in 2013

Great location, amazing pool and clean, well laid out inside

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Anna Maria was wonderful and this rental was the icing on the cake. Everything has been updated, it was clean and having a full size washer and dryer just completed the stay. Oh..did I forget to mention the beautiful pool and private backyard? It rained quite a bit, but we never felt cooped up in the house. The owner is amazing. I left my bathroom supplies hanging on the hook in the bathroom and Debi mailed it to me immediately. How good is that customer service? We will definitely use this rental again. P.S. rent bikes...you can get everywhere on them.

amazing spot!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable accommodations in a quiet neighborhood. Kitchen was fully furnished to cook meals at home. Close to the beach, restaurants, shops and golf. We really enjoyed having our own pool to lounge by during the day. Having a washer and dryer was very handy as well. Highly recommend this property and we will definitely stay again in the future :)

Pristine beach cottage in ideal vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Loved AM Island and this cottage was the perfect way to fully enjoy it! Clean and modern with the super luxury of a private pool! Holmes Beach area is perfectly situated to enjoy great restaurants and exceptional entertainment options all by foot or bike. Would repeat visit or recommend to even the most discerning friends and family!

Absolutely loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved AMI and we loved this property a 5 min walk from a great (not too busy) part of Holmes Beach. The pool was fantastic and we appreciated the beach umbrella, wagon, chairs and pool toys for our kids. Kitchen supplies were great, making it easy to make dinner for our family before walking to the beach for beautiful sunsets. We would love to come again!

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'.
