Description from owner

Anna Maria Island is not a place where you go to the beach. When you are on Anna Maria Island you are at the beach.

The Anna Maria Island 'Beach Paradise Condo' is located on Holmes Beach directly in the middle of Anna Maria Island and is conveniently located across from the seven acre Manatee Public Beach and the shimmering Gulf of Mexico. This is one of only two lifeguard protected beaches on the Island, and includes the Café on the Beach, a great spot for pancake breakfast, lunch and the occasional live entertainment as well as a playground for the kids. If you desire a more secluded and quieter beach experience simply walk over to the beach and turn left or right and walk towards your desired seclusion.

For your vacation pleasure The Beach Paradise offers you more than any other property on Anna Maria Island including beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach coolers, beach towels, kayaks, bicycles, heated pool, free movie channels, free sports channels, HD television with over 200 channels, ultra-fast wi-fi, free long distance calling and much, much more...

Best Family Beach - Anna Maria Island Beaches

Truthfully, there are many great family beaches on the Florida Gulf Coast.

I choose Manatee County Public Beach as the best because it is on the most family friendly island AND is a great family beach. I should know, I grew up on this beach. This beach and the island it's on are still family oriented. The beach is located west of the City of Bradenton, at the western end of Manatee Avenue (Highway 64). The sand is beautiful and white, the water is calm, clean, and shallow enough to be kid-friendly. The beach is protected by lifeguards and there are restroom facilities, outdoor showers, a gift shop, a pier to walk on or to fish from, a picnic area, and of course there is the Cafe On The Beach when you get hungry.

Anna Maria is a residential community that caters to a wide range of visitors from all over the world. It is a quiet island without high-rises, big hotels, or nightlife. The focus is on relaxing and enjoying the beach and the community. There are plenty of restaurants, from seafood to Italian and Indian cuisine and everything in-between. From Manatee Public Beach you can walk all the way to the north tip of the island if you care to (many do) in about 2 hours. If you need some adventure, go para-sailing, take a charter fishing trip or a tour boat to Egmont Key. People who vacation on Anna Maria Island keep coming back year after year.

Another great thing about Anna Maria is the beautiful water. Anna Maria has some of the cle

About the area

Anna Maria Island is located on Florida's Gulf coast 35 miles south of Tampa Bay and 7 miles west of Bradenton Florida. Anna Maria Island Florida is the northern most of a string of barrier islands that stretch in a southerly direction toward the Florida Keys. Surprisingly Anna Maria Island comprises three very unique cities (villages), Bradenton Beach on the southern tip of the island Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria on the northern tip. The sugar white sand beaches and crystal blue waters extend the entire length of Anna Maria Islands seven miles coast line. This isn't a place where you go to the beach. When you are on Anna Maria Island you are at the beach. Anna Maria Island is rimmed with towering Australian pines, some as high as 60 feet, along with magnificent palm trees and sea oats. Abundant bird life soar against the bright blue skies. Anna Maria Island Florida is affectionately known as the island in the sun and is Florida's best kept secret. With Gulf temperatures averaging 84 degrees and 361 days of sunshine per year the surrounding waters of Anna Maria Island are known as the nursery because of the large number of dolphins that raise their young here. When walking or dining on Anna Maria Island's four gorgeous beaches or its surrounding coast line it is not uncommon to see dolphins playing. With the island's laid back charm and leisurely unhurried living speed limits are restricted to 25-35 mph throughout the island. This tropical paradise also offers free trolley service for both tourists and residents. A car is not necessary when vacationing on the island or you could park your car for your entire vacation. The trolley tours the island from 6:00 am and 10:30 pm and runs every 20-30 minutes. For your convenience the trolley stops right in-front of our Anna Maria Island Florida beach rentals condo. Anna Maria Island is completely surrounded by four tropical bodies of water and is accessible by two drawbridges from the mainland and one from Longboat Key where you will discover Sarasota. This tropical island paradise offers you seven miles of the most beautiful and peaceful white sand beaches found anywhere in the world lined with fishing piers, 150 miles of waterfront, waterfront restaurants, three waterfront parks crystal clear blue waters that meet the seemingly endless powdery white sand beaches of Anna Maria Island Florida.

“Awesome stay!”

Reviewed 23 Nov 2016

Impeccable beach house! All the amenities one would want. Great Weber gas grill, (almost) private pool, brand new kitchen, brand new front loader washer/dryer (free). Cross the street and you're on the public beach, or drive 10 min north or south for more private beach areas. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Alan, Donna, and Terry!

Owner's reply: Hi Jake, Thank you for taking the time to leave this nice review. It was a pleasure having you as our guests. We are thrilled you had a great time and enjoyed the pool and gas grill. We hope to have you as our guests again some time soon. Happy Thanksgiving. Sincerely, Terry

“Great place. Even better people!”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2014

My wife and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary on Anna Maria Island and were looking for a well appointed place to stay for a while. My wife is SUPER picky, though. Not knowing what to expect, we were greeted by name by the owners upon arrival! They gave us the tour of our rental, the pool, the laundry facilities (which aren't i the unit, but it's free and downstairs in the same building and, best of all...FREE) and showed us where the beach gear was. The unit was SUPER clean, just as promised and the kitchen was VERY well stocked. For the money, you can't beat this place. We're hard to please, and we're VERY pleased. While we were there, the owners made themselves available to answer questions or deal with anything that could come up. We couldn't believe how committed they were to ensuring our stay was pleasant. While you're on the island, don't miss Robinson Preserve (if you're active). You can rent paddle boards across the street, and be sure to visit Bridge Street, and the Kokonut Hut to have a drink with an AMAZING view of the beach and sunset. This was the best vacation we have ever taken and having such a clean, affordable, well-equipped place to stay helped make it a reality.

Owner's reply: Hi Mike & Carmen, Thank you for the awesome review it is greatly appreciate. Hope to see you again next summer. Thank you again, Terry

“Wonderful vacation”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2014

We had wonderful time. The location was close to everything. We enjoyed the trolley to the city pier and shopping in Anna Maria. We also kiaked the mangrove tunnels. The beach was across the street and perfect for sunning or the midnight walk. The pool was also very popular. The condo was beautifully decorated and was very quiet. We will most assuredly be back next year.

Owner's reply: Hi Donna, Thank you for the nice review. We hope to have you back again next summer. It was a pleasure working with you. Sincerely, Terry, Sandy & Family

We've been staying on Anna Maria for a few weeks every year at another location that was not direct gulf front and decided for our 30th Anniversary to enjoy a gulf front location this time. What a pleasant surprise! Clean, neat, reasonably priced, convenient location all in one. Management even dialed in the pool temp to our liking! Obviously ,management cares at this facility and wants you to come back...and we DEFINITELY will!

Owner's reply: Hi Mike, Thank you so much for the nice review. It is very much appreciated and we look forward to having you as our guests some time soon. Thank you again, Terry, Sandy & Family
