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. Hang out on your own private boat dock, fish or take out one of our 3 kayaks for a closer look at the manatees right in your backyard or later take a dip in the pool and just relax.

The space

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.

Guest access

The entire house minus the Owner's closet. We have two video cameras for security and safety purpose. One on the back of the house strictly looks at the canal so we can monitor the weather and tides and one in front of the house monitors the driveway.

Response from Mathias And Carren:
Sandra asked us to cancel the reservation in the aftermath of the storm that hit Florida in the days before her arrival. We understood that she rather postpone her trip and let her cancel and refunded all the money back. We want our guests to feel safe and comfortable and enjoy themselves. Whatever it takes

We have had the most wonderful holiday at Mathias and Carren's place. They were so helpful all the way through even with us booking our flights. The house is right on the waterfront with Manatees playing almost every day and we even hopped in the kayaks to be along side them. We saw dolphins, sharks and so much more whilst staying on the island. The house is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need from a BBQ to things for the beach. The outside area of the house is lovely with three seating areas and a swimming pool!! Thank you for a Lovely holiday and we will definitely be back!!

Anna Maria Island and the house were great. Our family of 6 fit well in the house and loved having the pool as an option when we weren't at the beach. The island is beautiful with great beaches. The house served us well, allowing us to cook many of our own meals and have a place to relax.

The house is quaint with a lovely "beachy" feel to it. The indoor and outdoor facilities are excellent - the pool is fantastic and the kayaks are great fun. The location is absolutely stunning. Mathias and Carren were excellent hosts and incredibly responsive with all communication.

This property is perfect! The hosts have thought of every possible amenity. 2 kayaks, a beautiful outdoor fireplace, great pool, and daily manatee sightings in the inlet made for a great trip. The property was clean on arrival and the pictures posted are exactly what you will get when you show up. Mathias and Carren were very responsive and easy to work with. We look forward to booking again!

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.
