Overview

About the property

Elegant Unforgettable Beach-house With Outdoor Pool With Theatre

An elegant beach-house that redefines the idea of island comfort, built with love and an extreme attention to detail. Every room of the house has a unique ambiance combining color, textures and accent lighting. The outdoor area is one of the most spacious on the island with a large heated free form pool, plentiful seating, tropical greenery and a private outdoor movie theater with a 144” screen.

The house is located in a quiet neighborhood in the narrow part of Anna Maria Island. You can see the Gulf of Mexico as well as the Intercostal Water from the windows. Being just steps away from a wide and never crowded beach allows for plentiful beach trips throughout the day. The free island trolley is close-by.

This two-story 1980 sq. ft. house comfortably sleeps five. It has two bedrooms, each with a King size bed and a large closet, and a loft with a convertible sofa. All the furniture around the house is brand new as well as towels and bedding.

The dining area and the kitchen with a granite counter-top are elegant and welcoming incorporating colorful details as the main ingredient. All the appliances and dishware are new and plentiful. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you might need.

In the laundry room you will find high-efficiency Samsung washer and dryer and a utility sink.

The living room area on the first floor of the house offers a 55” smart TV, while the living room on the second floor has a 70” smart LED TV. Both are connected to Netflix. A fast internet at 30Mb/s is available throughout the house.

A must-see feature of the house is a two-story castle with a spiral staircase that takes you to the upstairs loft.

Smart electronic technologies are implemented throughout the house such as motion activated lights, decorative night lights, electronic lock on the main door, four individually controlled climate zones and programmable color-changing LED light in the pool.

The outdoor area right next to the pool in furnished with a large patio table set, a brand new grill and lounge chairs. Bluetooth sound system plays music from your smart phone or tablet. A private outdoor movie theater right next to the pool makes the evenings at Happy Island Castle truly magical.

About Shawna Gauger

We found Anna Maria Island during a RV trip to Bradenton, FL. Just one bike ride across the Cortez bridge and we knew we had found home. Such a friendly "old Florida" feel. There is nothing better than an island FULL of locally owned small businesses.

Shawna Gauger purchased this house in 2015

Why Shawna Gauger chose Bradenton Beach

We love this place. There is no place like home, but wait till you come here. It is tucked away, fantastically private, and full of entertaining perks. I mean, who wouldn't want to enjoy a favorite movie projected onto a 144" screen while floating in a pool. Relaxation at it's finest.

Great house, great location.

  • 5 of 5

First time renting a house on AMI. I did a great job finding this house in the neighborhood I like. The house itself is really adorable. The pool and yard were especially nice and we all felt at home here. Appliances were great, mattress upstairs needs replacement but other than that everything was really nice. I had 5 people in the house but my older daughter had to sleep on the sofa because the bed In the loft wasn't gonna cut it for her. The owner was helpful when we needed pillowcases for the extra pillows and always a text message away. Definitely would stay here again.

Wow....just wow!

Excellent communications with Shawna throughout and she met us on arrival. The house is even better than in the photos. Clean, spacious and perfect location.

We loved Anna Maria and the beach near the house was stunning. Free trolley at the end of the road was ideal. Shawna gave us lots of recommendations of places to eat. We didn't have a bad meal during our stay.

Just fabulous. Thank you!
