Our condo is beachside (no road) which means you can step out straight onto the white, sandy beach. Located on the second floor, the condo directly overlooks the beach and Gulf of Mexico (not the swimming pool). From the balcony enjoy the 180 degrees panoramic view of the beach where you can sip a cocktail while watching the spectacular sunsets or simply relax and see the dolphins and manatees swim by. The heated pool is beachside along with jaccuzzi and sauna. There are landscaped gardens, a lift and private covered parking. The condo has been recently updated, with modern appliances and a utility room with washer and dryer. We holiday here twice a year and have furnished the condo to a very good standard with comfortable furnishings and beach theme.
Location description: Having travelled extensively, we found Anna Maria Island 20 years ago and are still going back today, it being our favourite place and now our childrens too! Located on the beautiful sandy beaches of Florida's Gulf Coast, Anna Maria Island epitomises traditional Florida. Its buildings are no higher than 2 floors, meaning the beaches are never full! There are no fast food restaurants on the Island although there are plenty of eating places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Walk along one of three piers on the Island, relax with a cocktail while watching people fishing or see dolphins and manatees swimming by. A stroll to historic Bridge Street with its pier and boutique shops is not to be missed.

On the Beach
By A Bird on 27-Oct-2018
On the Beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Amazing views with spectacular sunsets. Saw dolphins every day as well as manatees. Condo is comfy with all-mod cons with a beach feel. Private parking and lift. Close to all amenities. Hot tub and heated pool with beach access. Lovely place to stay, will definitely be back!
By Wood Family on 31-Jul-2018
After a hectic 11 days in Orlando we were looking forward to our first visit to AMI. We had heard a lot of good things about the place and it certainly didn't disappoint.
Condo is fantastic with all the home comforts with a fantastic view thrown in. We had breakfast on the balcony every morning and managed to see dolphins every day from the balcony. We will definitely be back but will spend less time in Orlando and more time here.
Homey and Comfortable
By The Geranchers on 28-Jul-2018
This was our first family vacation to Anna Maria Island. The island is beautiful and this was the best condo we have ever stayed in! It was so homey and comfortable. We plan to return and would stay in this condo in a heartbeat!
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Sunsets and Sound of Waves
By Clea on 21-Apr-2018
This home on Anna Maria Island is lovely! We enjoyed the soaring birds, the sound of the waves, the comfort of a well decorated home, along with the security of the gate access and quick response of the realty company close by. The sunsets were indeed amazing! This location is a gem and we will be looking to return again. Many thanks.

Home from Home
By Chumley Family on 14-Nov-2015
Another month gone by in Paul and Lesa's superb apartment. Really feels like a 'Home from Home'.
Weather has been absolutely fantastic.
Many thanks again.
Wonderful - 3rd visit
By The Semikins on 29-Aug-2015
3rd visit for us in this unit.
Wonderful as ever.
No dolphins this time but made up with close visiting with 2 manatees and baby turtles.
Thank you for letting us stay again.
Will be back!
By The Knowles Family on 18-Jul-2015
Back again, third visit in four years. I think that says it all!!
What a find!
By Gill & Keith Wood on 26-Apr-2014
What a find! In fact we found you 3-4 years ago and put you under our Google 'favourites'.
It was well worth the wait and perfect for Keith, who has limited mobility.
We very much hope to return and thank you!
By The Hennessy Family on 06-Jul-2013
We have returned to Anna Maria Island three times and we feel it is like a second home.
Our enjoyment was enhanced this time because of your excellent facilities, welcoming and pleasant apartment and absolutely stunning view! We love the paintings and décor too.
The condo surroundings were kept clean and tidy thanks to care of staff, including car port and grass.
The most memorable part of our stay is as follows:
Swimming in the warm, green sea when a pod of dolphins actually joined us and played in the water about a foot away!!
Walking on the beach in early hours and meeting a giant turtle which had just laid her eggs in a nest. We had no torch because the moon was full and bright. As we watched it returned to the sea, we had tears of joy, wonderment and thankfulness at sharing such a special moment in a sea turtle's life.
Parasending over sea
Joining a trip out in a boat (just over the Cortez Bridge) and swimming on a sand bar, finding crabs, sand dollars etc in their natural environment was glorious.
Watching beautiful sun rises and sunsets.
Playing bat and ball on the white, powdery sand daily, much to the amusement of other beach goers who we felt sure thought it was too hot for such sport! We made a court of sea-weed which was much admired!!
We all feel the three weeks holiday was the best of our lives.
Thank you for allowing us to share your home.
By Mr & Mrs Bates on 28-Oct-2012
Condo as always faultless.
Have been coming to Anna Maria for 27 years and our high opinion does not falter.
A lovely vacation - thank you.
By L & T Wiles on 17-Oct-2012
A perfect holiday location, we enjoyed the weather, the beach, the sea, the pool, the sunsets and the dolphins.
We will re-visit.
By Jayabekora Family on 16-Jun-2012
Thank you Paul and Lesa for sharing your beautiful apartment. A fantastic location with everything we needed to make our holiday enjoyable. We had fun filled days with our 9 year old son and relaxing evenings overlooking the ocean. Everything a family needs.
We were delighted to see osprey fishing in the ocean and both dolphins and manatees swimming close to the beach.
We anticipate another visit!
By A And C Chumley on 25-May-2012
We have stayed on the Island many times in the last 20 yrs but Paul, Lesa: apartment is the best yet! The views, position and furnishings are superb. We watched the dolphins on at least 5 occasions and today, 24th May we watched 6 manatees cruise along the shoreline and stopping to investigate the swimmers!
We have has a truly wonderful holiday here and we will be back soon.
Best restaurants - Blue Marlin and Bridge Street Bistro.
Thanks Paul and Lesa, we'll be in touch!!
By The Madden Family on 16-Apr-2011
A wonderful week in a fantastic condo! Had everything we needed and then some.
The views are incredible and the weather was perfect all week.
The only problem we encountered all week was deciding whether to go to the pool then beach, or beach then pool.
Its very difficult to leave today... Pennsylvania still has snow on the ground! We plan to return just as soon as possible.
