Surrounded by water with the Gulf of Mexico to the west, the Intra-Coastal Waterway to the east, Tampa Bay to the north and Sarasota Bay to the south. We have the best location on Anna Maria Island where the island is only 150 yards wide. Our complex stretches from the Gulf to the Intra-Coastal Waterway. We have private beach access and there are more than twelve restaurants you can walk to in just a few minutes. There are good days at the beach, and then there are days like today. Days that godown in memory a “Best Day Ever!” Today, powder-soft sands and the Gulf of Mexico greeted you like a long-lost friend. Today, your heart soared and your adrenaline roared as you parasailed high above sun kissed waves, the turquoise sea unrolling at your feet. Today, you strolled miles of pillowy... Surrounded by water with the Gulf of Mexico to the west, the Intra-Coastal Waterway to the east, Tampa Bay to the north and Sarasota Bay to the south. We have the best location on Anna Maria Island where the island is only 150 yards wide. Our complex stretches from the Gulf to the Intra-Coastal Waterway. We have private beach access and there are more than twelve restaurants you can walk to in just a few minutes. There are good days at the beach, and then there are days like today. Days that godown in memory a “Best Day Ever!” Today, powder-soft sands and the Gulf of Mexico greeted you like a long-lost friend. Today, your heart soared and your adrenaline roared as you parasailed high above sun kissed waves, the turquoise sea unrolling at your feet. Today, you strolled miles of pillowy, white beach in search of the perfect shell for your collection. Today, the sun’s golden rays were more beguiling than anything you’d ever imagined. Today, you did nothing at all –– and yet you managed to do everything you wanted. And now? Now, you’re lounging on your private, Gulf-view balcony. There’s a glass of wine in your hand. (Or perhaps it’s a fresh and frothy piña colada.) A gentle breeze whips off the water, rustling the wispy sea oats that border the shoreline. Today’s catch-of-the-day cooks while you watch the sunset. Oh, the sunset! It’s as if the sun has smeared its favorite colors – orange and peach, periwinkle and yellow – across the sky, in a dazzling display of nature’s wonder. Today, you’ve learned why locals always say that Anna Maria Island is not a place where you go to the beach; Anna Maria Island is a place where you are at the beach. So welcome. Welcome to Anna Maria Island. Welcome to the beach. Welcome to your home-away-from-home. Welcome to paradise. Our Anna Maria Island condo rental is a picture-perfect getaway for families, couples and friends. Overlooking what we consider to the the world’s best view – the oh-so turquoise Gulf of Mexico, pearlescent sands and a nearly endless blue sky – our home is all about your experience. Your superior experience. With every detail, we strive to exceed expectations. We’ll start in the designer kitchen, with its exotic granite counter tops and state-of-the-art appliances. Then, there are our contemporary furnishings, luxury linens, and top-of-the-line, temperature-controlled mattress. There are the big-screen TVs, the lightening fast (and free) WiFi, the in-condo washer and dryer. The heated pool. Your private balconies. (Yes, balconies, plural. You’ll have two!) Your private beach access. And that view. Because it’s always about that view. But of course, you don’t come to Anna Maria Island to hole up inside: you’re here for the crystalline waters, and the beautiful beaches, and the excellent shelling, and the delicious seafood, and the endless adventures. You’re here for the island. And from our condo, the island unrolls at your feet. As we said, welcome. More to Love about our Anna Maria Beach Condo: Our full amenities list is below, but here are a few of our favorite highlights: *No car required: The free trolley stops right in front of our condo. *Although we’re ready for your car: Your rental includes two private sheltered parking spots. *But really, you can walk everywhere: And we’re not talking just the beach – you’re also only a five-minute walk to shopping and the island’s best restaurants. *Sleep in comfort: We are proud to offer a bed so comfortable, you’ll want to take it home. The master suite’s king-sized, temperature-controlled mattress is the stuff of dreams. Literally. *Bye bye, laundromat: Many island condos don’t have in-unit washers and dryers. Ours does. So you can wash and rewash that bathing suit as often as you need. *Digital check-in: Forget the days of trying to coordinate key pickup and condo check-in; we do it all digitally! We’ll deliver your welcome package via phone or tablet, with every detail you need: directions to the condo, lock code, and TV and appliance instructions, as well as a mini guide to our favorite restaurants, things to do, and more. More to Love About Anna Maria Island: Anna Maria Island is a special place. Tour the island by boat. Or parasail! Rent a bike – or a scooter, a boat, or a jet ski. Stroll the beaches; they’re known for their excellent shells (not to mention, sunbathing). Shop small boutiques, jewelers, art galleries, and other local offerings. Go fishing. Pack your days with activity, or leave them blissfully unscheduled. The choice is yours on Anna Maria Island. About Your Host: Hi, we’re Terry and Sandy, the caring (and hands-on) owners and managers of Anna Maria Beach Condo. We’ve been here for years, so we know Anna Maria Island, the island’s condos, and our island’s guests. We understand you – what you need, what you want, and what you’d really like to have. With us, every stay balances the rigorous requirements of professional managers with the enthusiasm, pride and personal touches of an owner-managed rental. That means that with us, you enjoy the dual benefits of an in-the-know local combined with the professionalism and expertise of a serious owners. Come on down and experience the difference for yourself. Beds: 1 King Bed, 2 Queen Beds, 2 Twin Beds, 1 CribMore

About the neighbourhood
Anna Maria Island is located on Florida's Gulf coast 35 miles south of Tampa Bay and 7 miles west of Bradenton Florida. Anna Maria Island Florida is the northern most of a string of barrier islands that stretch in a southerly direction toward the Florida Keys. Surprisingly Anna Maria Island comprises three very unique cities (villages), Bradenton Beach on the southern tip of the island Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria on the northern tip. The sugar white sand beaches and crystal blue waters extend the entire length of Anna Maria Islands seven miles coast line. This isn't a place where you go to the beach. When you are on Anna Maria Island you are at the beach. Anna Maria Island is rimmed with towering Australian pines, some as high as 60 feet, along with magnificent palm trees and...
