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. Additionally you could park your car for your entire vacation because the location of the condo which is located just a few minutes walk from the islands best restaurants and bars featuring live music seven days a week including the Tiki Hut, Wicked Cantina, Beach House, Omas, French Table, Island Time, Beach Bistro, Freckle Fin, Blue Marlin, Bridge Tender and the Anna Maria Island Oyster Bar.

“Hidden Oasis Is a Wonderful Find”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2017

Hidden Oasis is a lovely property - nicely decorated, very clean, very well-kept, and equipped with pretty much everything you might need or want. It also has a fantastic view of the gulf and the beach; and this view is visible from the living room, bedroom, and deck.

Owner's reply: Hi Sandy, Thank you for the nice review and thank you again for renting from us. It was a pleasure having you as our guests. Please keep us in mind for your future travel plans we would love to as our guests again sometime soon. Sincerely, Terry, Sandy & Family

“Loved it”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2015

We loved this condo. We had a great view. Everything was very clean. I loved the keyless entry, everyone in our party could come and go without having to worry about a key. You are so close to the beach and walking distance to everything you need. I would rent this unit again.

“Fantastic location!”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2015

We were very fortunate to chose this condo online! It was next to the boardwalk, step right out of the complex on the to the sand beach in 20 feet. Pool very clean and warm, can look right into it from every unit. Condo very comfortable with nice morning sunny deck. Sand was great, white, clean and fine. The location is close to everything, attractions can be reached in any direction and enjoyed in a day. Upham beach is a sweet little spot away from busy highway, I would highly recommend it for a great Flordia getaway, just make sure you plan a long enuf one, it is difficult to leave. Thank you!

“VIP panoramic beach view & footsteps to the gulf..”

Reviewed 15 Dec 2014

The best beach front corner unit condo directly overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and a panoramic view of Holmes Beach - as far as the eye can see!! From sunrise to sunset you can see it all from your private balcony which gives you the best birds eye view from above, yet walk a few steps out your door to either your private in ground pool or to the soft sandy beach and into the ocean! All only a few steps outside your door! Couple that with shopping around the corner and you have paradise in the palm of your hand!!! Truly an affordable yet tranquil piece of all that the paradise of the island has to offer!

“la costa”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2014

The condo we stayed at was very nice. It was great to be able to walk down to the beach from our condo. The pool was very nice and large and it was also nice to have bathrooms and showers right by the pool.

“Beautiful condo in a prime location on Anna Maria”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2014

We have enjoyed staying at this condo for two years. We will be returning this July for our third stay. The condo is very clean and has all the amenities necessary to enjoy your stay. There are even beach chairs and other items to take to the beach! The location on the island can't be beat. It's within walking distance of multiple restaurants and shops. The best thing is it's proximity to the beautiful white sandy beach. This is a great place for a family vacation. Beautiful gulf water, great restaurants and free trolley service to get around the island. Terry has been very accommodating and easy to work with. We would recommend renting from him!

Owner's reply: Thank you Debbie I really appreciate the nice review.
