Holiday Rental House
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.

About the neighbourhood
Laid-back and natural, Anna Maria Island awaits – a mere 20 minutes from Bradenton. A seven-mile strip of beautiful white-sand beaches line the barrier island of Anna Maria Island between the turquoise Gulf of Mexico and peninsular Florida. Also found in Anna Maria Island, at the southern mouth of Tampa Bay, are the cities of Bradenton Beach, Anna Maria and Holmes Beach. Strict regulations govern the type of buildings and businesses allowed on Anna Maria Island, but excellent dining – seafood, of course! – is very much encouraged. Come visit – you well might feel as though you have journeyed back in time.
Getting around
The free Trolly is nearby and the local 'Monkey Bus'. is more than happy to pick you up and drop you off if the night gets a little too strong.
