|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Inspired by modern Italy, North End Zen's sleek and minimalistic touches throughout will at times have you feeling as you were vacationing on a posh Mediterranean island. The spacious open concept floor plan begins at the front door and gracefully moves its way to the back of the house which has been artfully outfitted with an entire wall of sliders. This gleaming glass wall gives the appearance of an infinity room that spills out to the back yard while offering an amazing view of the indigenous mangrove trees and their tangled root system wildly spouting from the bed of the calm canal. The Euro-design kitchen sports all white custom cabinetry iced with cool quartz countertops. The backyard is where you will find the new modern heated pool along with a private dock for fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, or boating. Other amenities out back include an outdoor cold and hot shower, a gas grill, and poolside dining table large enough to seat the entire family. The split floor plan has the master suite along with a queen bedroom on the left side of the house while the right side contains the bunk room and queen guest bedroom separated by a Jack and Jill bath. The house, while nested in a tranquil cul-de-sac, is just steps from fine dining, shopping and convenience store on Pine Av., and a short stroll to the the wonderful white beaches of the Gulf. You will surely love this Zen-like north end gem which sleeps 8.
This property is professionally managed by Anna Maria Island Accommodations, located on the sunny and beautiful Anna Maria Island.
We had 2 families staying for the week. The house was gorgeous! It was so well-equipped that we didn't need anything else. We cooked most dinners at the house and had plenty of room in the dining room for all 7 of us to eat together. The walk to the beach was a little long for my special needs niece. But a quick jump in the car and we were there! We drove to a different beach every day, but decided the one closest to the house was the best! My usually poker-faced nephew (18 years old), was even sad to leave! Can't wait to come back! The sooner the better!
The pictures do not begin to do this home justice! It is absolutely gorgeous and perfect. From the stunning pool area, to the view from the kitchen windows out into the bay, the comfortable and beautiful furnishings, the 2 block stroll to the beach and the ability to walk or bike anywhere on the north end of the island. We gathered the female members of our family here for a pre-wedding celebration and had the time of our lives! It was the perfect vacation spot and a vacation dream come true! We will be back as soon as we can!
The house is absolutely lovely - beautifully finished with a stunning kitchen area overlooking the canal and pool. It is very well equipped and the location is perfect - walking distance to both beach and shops.
We loved our stay and hope to book for next year.
This home exceeded all of our expectations with regard to floor plan/ open areas to relax, eat, and to enjoy the views of the canal. The locations of the bedrooms gave the children and adults their own private space. We truly enjoyed fishing off the dock and the added benefit of the heated pool. The walk to Pine Ave to shop, dine, and explore was an extra that we really appreciated and couldn't imagine being in any other area on AMI. We would definitely rent this property again next year. The interior finishes and tasteful decor made for a luxury experience and it felt like we picked the perfect place to vacation.
Centrally located on Anna Maria Island which gives you the ability to easily enjoy all of the amenities, shops, treats, and eats the Island has to offer. Come once and you will want to come back for more. See what the many great travel magazines and major publications are calling, "one of the best family vacation spots in the country" for yourself. It will be an experience the entire family will enjoy. See you on Island-Time soon!
