About this listing
Newly renovated seaside home with all the amenities for a perfect vacation. Situated directly on a spring-fed natural canal with great views to to Anna Maria Sound and only 1 block from the Anna Maria Trolley (free) and 2 blocks from the beach.

Our cozy waterfront family home has been newly renovated. The house is very fresh, clean, new furniture and very tastefully decorated. The open floor plan allows for direct waterfront and pool viewing from the entrance, living room, kitchen and dining room and third bedroom. Enjoy relaxing on the deck near the water and by the pool, a quick and relaxing stroll to the beach for a dip in the ocean or enjoying the sunset. When its cooling off in the evening, sit in your personal Adirondack chair by the gas fire pit and watch the stars.

Our family has lived all over the world, from Germany to England to Argentina to Australia to New York (which almost qualifies a country on its own) and finally Tampa, FL. We have two girls 7 and 9 and we love to travel as a family.
We have seen many beautiful beaches on this planet and felt that Anna Maria is at least among top 5 of all beaches we have ever been to. My wife and I are working in the travel industry and we want to make sure that guests feel at home at our house on the water and have a great time.
