About the area

Whether it's the dazzling sunshine of a winter retreat or the inviting Gulf breeze on a sultry summer beach, Anna Maria Island is a paradise unlike any other. Located on Florida's beautiful southwest Gulf coast, Anna Maria Island will make your Florida vacation dreams come true. From your private beach access, just steps from your door explore the multiple pure white sand beaches of Anna Maria Island. Gaze out over the emerald Gulf of Mexico waters as you stroll the miles of pristine coastline. Pause to admire the thriving marine life of this tropical oasis. Watch in awe as the sun dips behind the gleaming Gulf waters or enjoy a romantic walk as moonlight glistens atop a wave of its rising tide. If shopping or dining out is your passion, Bridge Street is a leisurely walk, and a short drive gets you to the vibe of St. Armands Circle and Sarasota. The free island trolley runs daily from 8am - 11pm. Other activities in the immediate vicinity include kayaking, boating, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, yoga on the beach, hiking and parasailing.

“Excellent Condo, Great location”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2016

Mark, the owner, is very responsive in communications. He told us to just bring yourselves and everything is there, beach towel, beach chairs, towels, etc. Sure enough everything is there and in great condition. This condo complex has private access to the beach, which makes it almost a private beach. There is a heated pool in case you want to just relax there. The condo has all the amenities that you will need. People there are friendly. Mark is available should you need anything since he lives nearby. We walked to different restaurants while we were there. There's also a Circle K nearby should you need to pick up anything. There's a trolley that takes you up and down Anna Marie. We took advantage of that too to explore Anna Marie. We didn't use our car during this vacation except one time when the wife wanted to go to the outlet mall. We had a great time. The beach, the condo, the area, the owner, everything is top notch. This is the most relaxing vacation I've ever had. I'd like to go back again soon.

“Wonderful Accomodations!!”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2015

This was my first experience with VRBO, and if Mark is any indication of the owners involved, I will definitely use the site again. Mark was flexible on our late arrival, and was able to help us out with a later departure. The condo was awesome, and more then adequate for our family of four (two adult children). The location was perfect; overlooking the pool and only a short walk to a beautiful beach. The condo was fully stocked with anything we could need (coolers, ice packs, chairs, beach towels, all pots, pans and dishware). It was clean and well kept. I will definitely contact Mark again if we visit the Island again.

“Dream vacation”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2014

We have never been to Anna Maria Island nor rented from VRBO, but our vacation was awesome . Everything was just like the pictures of the condo and of the island. The local people were very friendly. The Sandbar & Hurricane Hanks are definitely the best places to eat. We love the area and already planning our trip for next July !

“Get a way”

Reviewed 20 Feb 2014

The condo was very beautiful and accommodating to walking everywhere. The view was spectacular from the balcony and the unit had all the necessities. It was quite and easy to enjoy the pool and ocean front beach. There was specified covered parking, equipment to use for the beach. Laundry facility on each floor and great security community. Enjoyed our stay and will consider again in future.

“WOW, home away from home!”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2011

This was a delight to stay at. The owner has thought of everything. The balcony looked over the pool and was shaded in the afternoon. You are directly across the street from the beach and the condo has beach chairs, towels, floaties, etc. The beds were very comfy and we had plenty of room. I would recommend this wonderful owner and condo to everyone. We'll be back, for sure.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

I stayed in this beautiful condo christmas week. Thought I would miss NY during the holiday season...not a chance. I felt so comfortable and at the same time pampered. The decorating was exquisite, from furniture to fresh flowers. Maybe the best part was the comfy bed...ohhh that bed, still miss it! The amazing beach just steps away and the trolly outside your door, if you can pull yourself away for more adventure. This vacation was truely unforgetable, and I highly recommend this meticuliously kept condo. No reason to look further, this place was beyond our expectations.


Marks Condo is the best, it has everything that we needed to make our beach and pool holiday one of the best we have had.The pool is fantastic , just the right length for us oldies.Resturants and bars close by and very friendly.I would not hesitate to recommend Marks condo to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday or to use it as a base to sightsee Sarasota and surrounding areas.

This is the 4th time we have stayed at Gulf Watch but the first time in this unit. Unit is far above others in the complex. The owner has done an outstanding job in adding little touches that makes the stay so nice.

I highly recommend this property

Looking forward to next year.
