Anna Maria Island is one of the most visited barrier islands on Florida's West Coast. Sarasota International and Tampa International Airports nearby for easy access. The island is divided into 3 quaint little towns. Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach, and Anna Maria, each have their own character. They all have one thing in common--pristine, sugary white sand beaches. The house is fully equipped, with washer and dryer. Just steps from the beach and also to the Trolley covering the entire island. Local artists are featured in gift shops, terrific waterfront dining, romantic sunsets, and one of the finest collections of beach bars anywhere. Relax, unwind, and truly get away from your daily stress. Melt.
Guests have full use of the entire house and furnishings.

We will welcome you at the door and help you with any rentals you may need from bikes to playpens........
Our little Island is very quaint and quiet. This is not a party home and the law enforcement are very strict about the noise ordnance here. We have great neighbors that live here fulltime and want to keep them happy too :)
There is a Free Trolley for you to hop on for the entire Island. After you park your car you really don't ever need to crank it again :)
There is an outside shower area for you to rinse off after being at the beach. Beach chairs are there for you to use also :)
We had 2 weeks at the beach house. Great location but it is on main street - close to beach (few minute walk) grocery and drug store nearby too. House was very clean and fully equipped. Lots of different outdoor areas to relax in. Thanks for sharing your beach house Gwen we will be back! Lori & Howie.
Our stay at the beach house was wonderful. The pictures looked very nice online but it is even nicer than it looks. It had everything that we needed and more and has very nice beach décor. The cottage is on the main road that runs the length of the Island and it is busy at certain times of the day but when inside you don't hear any noise. There is a balcony both at the front and back of the cottage so you have a choice of where to relax or there is also seating areas outside on the lower level. The location was fantastic. The beach is about a 3 minute walk away and we had many wonderful walks on the soft white sand. The grocery and drug stores are a short walk (a few blocks) which was very convenient and we didn't need a car. The free trolley was easy and convenient to explore the island and we also rented bikes for a reasonable price. I would love to go back to Anna Maria Island and would definitely try and stay at Gwen's beach house.
Had a wonderful stay at Gwen's near the sea! Such a lovely home outfitted with every amenity by a gracious host. Loved the location - convenient to trolley, groceries and restaurants (try Mr. Bones BB-Q - within walking distance - had twice dine-in & take-out for a party for family who live nearby). I have a number of family members who live in the Sarasota area who constantly entertain family and guests coming for visits. After a beach get together at the house, my family wants to recommend Gwen's place to their loved ones! There is ample and charming outdoor space, including a lovely screened-in porch. Plenty of space to spread out and relax here, both inside and out. Thank you for our stay, Gwen - we'll be back!
We could not have been more pleased with our hosts or their lovely, exceptionally clean and wonderfully convenient to everything home. Gwen was gracious, caring, inviting and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to return there, and maybe staying a bit longer.
These are really nice people with a warm and beautiful home.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house had everything we needed and Gwen thought of everything, responded promptly to all of my questions and found answers to my questions. My whole family had a great time!
This was a delightful home for relaxing. It has everything for a vacation at the beach--comfy beds, two full baths, equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, and most importantly, a gracious host. Gwen kept in touch, was quick to reply, and wants you to discover the magic of her island. Her place is on the main island road, easy to find but tucked behind trees. Decor is casual, contemporary beach with an airy theme. Very clean. I would highly recommend this place and host. The beach was just a short walk away. Yippee
This is an amazing vacation place. Gwen has everything ready for her guests. My family and I had a wonderful vacation at her house. The place is really amazing and Gwen is very helpful
the best place you can spend your vacation time!! nice, quiet, super clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed every moment spending over there. Highly recommend Gwen as a friendly, easy-going host. Very very nice place!!!
