3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Ground Level Private Home With Heated Pool, Spa on the Water
About Mark Drexler
I am a retired Canadian from Ontario, who spends his spring, summer and fall in St Andrews, New Brunswick, and our winters now in Anna Maria. My wife Mary and I first visited Anna Maria in 2010, and fell in love with this laid back community on the ocean. I spend 5 months a year here, and make my home available to others when I cannot be here.
Mark Drexler purchased this House in 2013
Why Mark Drexler chose Anna Maria
IF you have been to Anna Maria, you already know it's unique charm. We wanted a ground level home, for easy indoor and outdoor movement without steps, with a spot for our boat, on a canal, with a pool, and with a west facing private back yard for afternoon and evening sun. We wanted enough space to be comfortable, and to entertain guests, especially with our great outdoor living space at Sea Haze. We are also in a quiet residential neighborhood at the north end of AMI, in the City of Anna Maria.
What makes this House unique
There are many nice rental houses available on Anna Maria, but this isn't just a rental. This is our home. You will see and feel that Sea Haze is special the moment you step foot in Sea Haze Cottage. Everyone does. I make it available, when my family cannot be here.
Max guests:6 (sleeps up to 4 adults)

More than a rental
This is more than just a rental property, this is someones home! Starting off your vacation with drawers full of cooking spices, oils, etc makes your week so much easier! When renting a property its not the first thing you think of but let me tell you it was fantastic to walk in and find a nicely stocked kitchen of supplies. Super quiet road, easy location, clean, great owner communication and the best outdoor bar area! We just got home and are counting down the days till we go again!
This vacation house has it all!
Our family of 4 enjoyed out first trip to AMI. This house has everything you need! The backyard is amazing with pool, hot tub, bar, plenty of chaise chairs, tv and right on the canal. Our boys enjoyed fishing off dock and using SUP. Closer to Tampa Bay side of island but with bikes you can be at the Gulf side in minutes. We never had an issue and never had to call the owner/Mgr. Very clean...and I am picky. We will definitely stay at Sea Haze again!!
Super place to stay
We are a family of 4 with almost teenage age kids. This property was perfect for our needs. The fact that the property has a keypad and we did not need to collect keys from somewhere was great. The kitchen is really well stocked and even has spices, some coffee, sugar and other items in the cupboards. Lots of plates,glassware,pots,cutlery etc. Air con is great. There are tvs in all rooms, which the kids enjoyed, not having that at home. Laundry machines were brilliant and there were machine machine pods already there. The pool is lovely and the covered porch is ideal for reading or chatting or enjoying the view. My husband fished (successfully) from the dock most days. There is a paddle board, although it might be useful to add a buoyancy aid at some stage. There is a very good selection of beach gear including Tommy Bahamas chairs, wagon and umbrella. We also used the 2 bikes available and hired 2 others - this was a great way of getting around the island. The property was very clean. Communication with both the owner Mark and the manager Scott was easy. A few wee queries we had were sorted out quickly and easily.
So, thanks Mark, we had a lovely time and hope to be back in the future!
It was perfect!!
We absolutely loved the house! It was decorated nicely, the perfect size for our family and close to everything! We enjoyed having the pool to hang out in the afternoon and evening after spending the day at the beach....and loved sitting out on the dock to drink our coffee in the morning!
Everyone loved the paddle boarding in the Bay...and the bikes were perfect for getting to and from the beach!!
We were sad to have to leave...and definitely look forward to staying again!
Family of four had a great time. House was beautiful and the outdoor space was perfect for fishing, enjoying coffee, and spending late afternoons in the pool. Hope to come back in the future!
Wonderful house and perfect for our family! My kids loved the pool and outdoor area. Great location too!
