Description from owner

Surrounded by water with the Gulf of Mexico to the west, the Intra-Coastal Waterway to the east, Tampa Bay to the north and Sarasota Bay to the south. We have the best location on Anna Maria Island where the island is only 150 yards wide. Our complex stretches from the Gulf to the Intra-Coastal Waterway. We have private beach access and there are more than twelve restaurants you can walk to in just a few minutes.

There are good days at the beach, and then there are days like today. Days that godown in memory a “Best Day Ever!”

Today, powder-soft sands and the Gulf of Mexico greeted you like a long-lost friend. Today, your heart soared and your adrenaline roared as you parasailed high above sun kissed waves, the turquoise sea unrolling at your feet. Today, you strolled miles of pillowy, white beach in search of the perfect shell for your collection. Today, the sun’s golden rays were more beguiling than anything you’d ever imagined. Today, you did nothing at all –– and yet you managed to do everything you wanted.

And now? Now, you’re lounging on your private, Gulf-view balcony. There’s a glass of wine in your hand. (Or perhaps it’s a fresh and frothy piña colada.) A gentle breeze whips off the water, rustling the wispy sea oats that border the shoreline. Today’s catch-of-the-day cooks while you watch the sunset. Oh, the sunset! It’s as if the sun has smeared its favorite colors – orange and peach, periwinkle and yellow – across the sky, in a dazzling display of nature’s wonder.

Today, you’ve learned why locals always say that Anna Maria Island is not a place where you go to the beach; Anna Maria Island is a place where you are at the beach.

So welcome. Welcome to Anna Maria Island. Welcome to the beach. Welcome to your home-away-from-home. Welcome to paradise.

Our Anna Maria Island condo rental is a picture-perfect getaway for families, couples and friends. Overlooking what we consider to the the world’s best view – the oh-so turquoise Gulf of Mexico, pearlescent sands and a nearly endless blue sky – our home is all about your experience. Your superior experience.

With every detail, we strive to exceed expectations. We’ll start in the designer kitchen, with its exotic granite counter tops and state-of-the-art appliances. Then, there are our contemporary furnishings, luxury linens, and top-of-the-line, temperature-controlled mattress. There are the big-screen TVs, the lightening fast (and free) WiFi, the in-condo washer and dryer. The heated pool. Your private balconies. (Yes, balconies, plural. You’ll have two!) Your private beach access. And that view.

Because it’s always about that view.

But of course, you don’t come to Anna Maria Island to hole up inside: you’re here for the crystalline waters, and the beautiful beaches, and the excellent shelling, and the delicious seafood, and the endless adventures. You’re here for the island. And from our condo, the island unrolls at your feet.

As we said, welcome.

More to Love about our Anna Maria Beach Condo:

Our full amenities list is below, but here are a few of our favorite highlights:

*No car required: The free trolley stops right in front of our condo.

*Although we’re ready for your car: Your rental includes two private sheltered parking spots.

*But really, you can walk everywhere: And we’re not talking just the beach – you’re also only a five-minute walk to shopping and the island’s best restaurants.

*Sleep in comfort: We are proud to offer a bed so comfortable, you’ll want to take it home. The master suite’s king-sized, temperature-controlled mattress is the stuff of dreams. Literally.

*Bye bye, laundromat: Many island condos don’t have in-unit washers and dryers. Ours does. So you can wash and rewash that bathing suit as often as you need.

*Digital check-in: Forget the days of trying to coordinate key pickup and condo check-in; we do it all digitally! We’ll deliver your welcome package via phone or tablet, with every detail you need: directions to the condo, lock code, and TV and appliance instructions, as well as a mini guide to our favorite restaurants, things to do, and more.

More to Love About Anna Maria Island:

Anna Maria Island is a special place. Tour the island by boat. Or parasail! Rent a bike – or a scooter, a boat, or a jet ski. Stroll the beaches; they’re known for their excellent shells (not to mention, sunbathing). Shop small boutiques, jewelers, art galleries, and other local offerings. Go fishing. Pack your days with activity, or leave them blissfully unscheduled. The choice is yours on Anna Maria Island.

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.

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.

“Beach Sands 101”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2016

It was a great experience. The condo was close to perfect. It was a great spot close to the beach and many restuarants and shops. The Island was perfect with free trolly service and very clean roads and ammenities. The Ocean views and the white sand beaches made our entire family relax and take many pictures and have great memories for years to come. We will return.

Owner's reply: Hello Dan, Thank you for taking the time to send this review. We are thrilled our condo was perfect for you and you had a great time. We hope to have you back again as our guests some time soon. Sincerely, Terry, Sandy & Family

“Love the location and love the island!”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2012

This condo rental was beautifully furnished and even had some essentials in the bathrooms and kitchen. View from the living room window and balcony was breathtaking. Beach was just a short walk across the street, no more than 1 minute. Restaurants and bars were just a short walk away and the grocery store is just a few minutes away with the free trolley. My family would highly recommend this rental and location. No need for a rental car if you're willing to use the trolley and stay on the island, but may find a need one if traveling to other close locations such as Siesta Keys or taking a visit to the Mote Aquarium.

Owner's reply: Hi Gwyn, Thank you so much for the nice review. Please keep us in mind for your future travel plans. We would love to have you back again. It as a pleasure working with you. Thank you again, Terry, Sandy & Family

“Ram Sea condo rental”

Reviewed 6 May 2012

The unit we stayed in at Ram Sea was great. Not only clean but recently renovated and perfect for 2 couples sharing expenses.The beach access was directly there and they had a jacuzzi and pool and huts where you could eat lunch outside and get away from the sun. May was perfect as the beach was uncroweded. The front desk help were friendly and nice and gave us great advice on where to eat. North Redington Beach we found was overall very nice and clean. It is not as advertised or popular as other beaches in that area but we will definetly go back. I also would do my rental at Ram Sea again. It was a great value and what they promised is what we recieved. We would rent from them again in a heart beat !!!!!

“Great Place to Stay!”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2012

Excellent accomodations -- clean, nicely furnished. Backyard and pool are fabulous. Very private and quiet even during Easter week. Sun in backyard all day long so pool is always warm. Short walk to spectacular beach. Would stay here again any time of the year!
