About Simon & Karen

We've been visiting Anna Maria for 20 years with the family and was finally in a position to purchase the house in the best location on Anna Maria. We're a family of seven plus 2 grandchildren now.

Were from the UK but spend half the year in AMI, and have a business in Bradenton.

Simon & Karen purchased this house in 2014

Why Simon & Karen chose Anna Maria

Location, location, location. By the Northshore Beach of Bean Point with private pool, walk to the bars, Restaurants, Rod & Reel Pier and AMI city pier. Castaway Cove is a privately owned residence and does not share any facilities.

What makes this house unique

Its a family home, that we use ourself, so its modelled in our tastes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Leaving today after a great week in Florida! There was 10 of us, 6 adults, 3 little boys and a 9 months old princess. We cam from chilly Blissfield, MI where we missed a snow storm! We spent most of our time enjoying the sun by the pool, we spent a day here on the beach and one at Coquina Beach. We rented golf carts - which were a lot of fun to get around town with. The guys enjoyed fishing on the Road & Reel Pier. We ate breakfast at the all you can eat pancake place on Manatee Beach. The Donut Experiment was also a hit. Two Scoops is a must to go to as welll - especially the Sea Salt Carmel. We also had to experience Slim's place - as my father in law is known as Slim. The Lobster Mac & Cheese & Shrimp were great. We also ate at the City Pier - which was good. And Eat Here, which was good but pricey and little portions. We had a greta trip, full of great memories and tons of laughs. Thank you for a great house!

Perfect relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Castaway Cove. The home was well stocked with everything we needed. It was clean, bright, open, and spacious. Our kids loved the bunk beds! My favorite spot in the House was the deck. We loved having so much close by- the beach, restaurants, and shops. As well as a Publix! The island is beautiful and we can’t wait go back next summer.

Beautiful, spacious property - great location and very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property - close to beach and great restaurants - five minute walk from Rod and Reel which is an excellent and inexpensive place to grab a drink, sit on the Pier and watch on the sunset, whilst viewing the pelicans and dolphins. Very bright and spacious living areas. We enjoyed using the pool in the afternoons after a morning trip to the beach at Bean Point. Kitchen very well equipped - although needed a few more wine glasses as we could only locate a couple! Younger adults also made good use of pool table. Owners excellent at sorting minor BBQ issue very quickly. Would recommend and love to stay again!

The house is beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than we expected, Karen was so friendly and hospitable. We have been traveling to Anna Maria once a year for the last 3 years for family vacation. This year we wanted our kids grandparents with us and needed a bigger space. This was perfect and private, we all absolutely loved it! We are planning our trip already for next year. We loved sitting in the porch every morning and having coffee before our walk on the beach. The kids loved the pool, and the pool table. Can’t wait for next year!
