Gorgeous bayfront house w/ ocean views, private pool - beach nearby!

Whether you're lounging in privacy on your sunny patio, soaking up the ocean view from the private pool, or exploring the island, your life back home will feel like a distant dream at this bayfront home in paradise!

You'll find this house pleasantly tucked away behind a cascade of fluttering palms and buttonwood trees on the northeast shore of Anna Maria Island, right at the mouth of Bimini Bay. Not only will you be afforded relaxation and privacy, but the beach is only one mile away, there's a restaurant across the street, and a free trolley can take you anywhere else on the island. As for parking - there's space for two cars in the garage and two more in the driveway.

Spend sunny mornings on your patio sipping coffee while watching the calm waves shimmer in the bay, or sink into the rope hammock with a novel. Freshen up with a dip in the shimmering pool, then whip up a hearty breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen or smoke some fish on the gas grill. With plenty of comfortable furniture spread throughout the house and patio, plus free WiFi, flatscreen TVs, a DVD player, and foosball table, you don't even have to go anywhere to have a great time! In the evening, settle in with a cold beverage on the patio and watch as the sky and sea explode into a magnificent golden sunset, and in the cooler months, warm up by the gas fireplace.

Celebrate the best of island life at this exceptional bayfront beach house - reserve your dates today!

I would definitely stay here again. A nice, quiet neighborhood, beautiful sunrises, dolphins everyday, pool and hot tub were perfect! The only suggestion is bring everything you will need... there were dishes, but not many other things in the kitchen. We bought salt/pepper, spices, garbage bags, dish soap, a scrubbing sponge, foil, laundry soap, etc. You might also need extra blankets depending on the time of year. Overall, it was a beautiful place.

The view from inside and outside this large and spacious house are just fabulous. the house is big enough for seating a large group with plenty of room to spread out. The large deck with pool and hot tub are perfect for enjoying the view.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The setting was stunning. We will definitely choose this home again when we return.

The view was beautiful to look at and peaceful. We saw a pod of dolphins just off the shore, amazing.

We love the privacy, the large pool (long enough to swim short laps), the outdoor 4-person hot tub and the spectacular 225 degree vistas across Tampa Bay. The swimming in the Gulf is great too right off the boardwalk of the house. The inside of the house is tired, and does not offer the level of amenities of many other Anna Maria properties, with the exception of the master bedroom and bath which is spacious and comfortable. However, the beds and pillows in the three bedrooms on the main floor are in need of improvement, and the furniture is comfy but somewhat worn. The kitchen lay-out is awkward but workable. Depending on what you look for in a warm weather waterfront location, you will either love this place and tolerate its quirks, or wish you were paying more for some other spot, on the Island.

This house has absolutely the best views of the Bay from anywhere in or outside the house.

The property was excellent, best I have stayed in the last 19 years.

The house is really amazing. We enjoyed the openness of the living room area. There are few things that I would ask prior to renting. The edge of the water is a great place to relax all day long, but the seaweed needs to be taken care of, which in return would stop the sand fleas that are outrageously out of control. Our families leg were eaten up in a scarey way. We figured out that the sand fleas may not be only on the dock, but inside as well. We enjoyed the grill and seeing Harry the Heron visit us. We would recommend that the home get a good cleaning and do some repairs to make worth the price. We did have a good time and will return to Anna Maria.

We had a great time and really enjoyed the house. Its location is fantastic and very beautiful. our willingness to rent for only a few days was appreciated as many renters in town want at least 7 nights. Thanks, and if I come back I will definitely consider using Island Real Estate.

We enjoyed it so much that we are going to reserve it again next year.
