This is a unique park on a beautiful barrier island, dating from 1940s with units ranging from vintage restored to luxurious manufactured homes. The park has a 55+ age requirement, no pets, and is perfectly landscaped and maintained. There is a clubhouse, library, boat docks, laundromat, and shuffleboard courts that see a lot of action! Our unit is clean, modern and nicely furnished, with a sizable kitchen and bathroom, pull out sofa in living room. Stroll literally right across the street and your feet sink into Anna Maria 's famous "powdered sugar" sand. Shells and water birds abound, and manatee and dolphin sightings are common. The island is covered with walking and biking trails.
Anna Maria is one of Florida's most loved barrier islands, still charming and with strict building codes that have prevented development and high rises from taking over! The island's beaches are consistently ranked among the nation's top ten, and the island itself offers a variety of wonderful restaurants, charming shops, and historical sites. One of the island's best features are the old-fashioned electric trolleys that circle the island nonstop. They are free...just hop on and ring the bell to disembexark!
Fully furnished mobile home, with nice linens and beach towels, fully stocked kitchen and bath. Internet and cable provided and a large, comfortable pull-out sofa in living room.
Interaction with Guests
Airport transfers can be provided, cost depending on which nearby airport (Tampa, St. Petersburg, or Sarasota). You can get anywhere on the island via the free trolley, so no need to rent a vehicle!
The Sandpiper Resort co-op is a lively 55+ park in the winter season, with beach walks, shuffleboard tournaments, and potlucks on the lawn by the new boat docks! Everyone is friendly and welcoming. We are in the narrowest part of the island, so the park goes from waterfront to waterfront, ocean to bay.
The free trolley in Anna Maria is fantastic! The trolley stops every 20 minutes, going in either direction. There are several of them that circle the island continuously. They are fun to ride around and sight-see from--just ring the bell to get off, and hop back on when you are ready! It is a great savings not to have to rent a car to get around, and you really do not need one if you want to stay on the island.
