Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: I discovered Anna Maria in 1985 and began making weekend visits. After exploring the Island, I found the perfect spot on the far north end of the Island and bought it in 1994. Anna Maria has managed to retain the Old Florida feel that has disappeared from so many beach towns. There is no better place to relax than the North End of the Island.
Why this property? The house is fully equipped for turnkey vacation living. The new kitchen is fully equipped, Cable TV, Wi-fi, bicycles, washer/dryer, beach towels, chairs and floats, outdoor shower, toys and games for children and the fully enclosed, landscaped yard and patio with gas grill ensure a relaxing vacation. You can walk or bike to anything on the Island and return to one of the most relaxing spots. The Bean Point beach and spectacular sunsets are only 250 feet from the house.
Cottage by the Sea
We visited Anna Maria in November with lifetime friends. The house was charming and comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped and we cooked several dinners and ate outside under the beautiful palms and stars. The backyard was landscaped beautifully. We loved how close we were to Bean Point! It was truly quiet and a wonderful cottage to come home to each day. We enjoyed the visiting tortiouse.we would definitely visit again. Who doesn’t love a white picket fence? Howard is a great communicator and host!

Fun in sun
Except for forgetting to re apply sunblock every hour. This was an awesome place to stay. Bring your Chromecast or Alexa Firestick, as the Tv doesn't appear to have tv streaming. Loved it!

It is always clean and in great working order. We will keep coming back. Thanks Howard!

Best trip ever!
My friend and I stayed in your home for a week of relaxation at the beach! It was absolutely perfect! Your house is beautiful, and we had everything we needed all week. The neighborhood was a short walk to the most amazing beach! We enjoyed the farmer’s market, shopping, and being able to grab a quick bite right down the road, too. Thanks for the best week! We can’t wait to come back!
