Seaside Views - Waterfront, Steps from Beach & Restaurants
This water front, two bedroom condominium (ground floor), sits on the end of Pine Avenue, across the street from the beach and has wonderful seaside views of the bay. It also has it's own private fishing dock and boat slip!
We have tastefully furnished this spacious condominium. Each room includes luxury furnishings that give the unit an island feel with all the comforts of home. Now with Free Wireless Broadband! We've added plantation shutters to every room with views that extend across the bay, beyond the city pier.
Stroll down Pine Avenue as it extends from the... City Pier on the bay to the Sandbar Restaurant which sits on the Western Shore. Enjoy glorious sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico from the soft sandy beach. Sip a cocktail at your beach front table to the tunes of a local band. Fishing is the number one sport in this area. Watch 'em reel in the big one from the Rod n Reel pier located a short walk away with great views of Egmont Key.
Located at the north end of Anna Maria Island at the corner of Pine Avenue and Bayfront Boulevard. Across the street on Bayfront Blvd. is the Historic Anna Maria City Pier and Restaurant which dates back to 1910, The Bayfront Plaza, home to "Two Scoops" Ice Cream Shoppe, Coffee House and Cafe is located directly across Pine Avenue. Also located at the Bayfront Plaza is the Anna Maria Post Office and shops for unique apparel, antiques, art, gifts and specialty items.
Take the free trolley that runs the length of the Island to Bradenton Beach, passing through Holmes Beach which sits in the center of this peaceful island. The mainland can be reached via two bridges which extend from the eastern shore towards Bradenton. The southern tip reaches out across the intra-coastal towards Longboat Key and Sarasota. Visit St Armands Circle for the best designer shopping on the West Coast or head to Walt Disney World and the other Orlando attractions which are just two hours away.

Great holiday.Brilliant condo accurately described especially the location which was just across from City Pier. Mornings spent fishing from the pier and eating at the restaurant was good and reasonably priced.Beach chairs, umbrella and especially fishing tackle greatly appreciated.The free trolley bus was an added bonus.
Never mind sunset go to City Pier and watch the sunrise.

We enjoyed our stay at your condo. In fact, it was one of our best vacations, mostly due to location and very comfortable condo. We did a lot of walking, beaching, and of course many visits to the little shopping mall.

Quiet, comfortable, well-appointed. A wonderful place to spend quality time. The Knowles do a terrific job of making this place a superb getaway for those of us looking for calm and security and peace in a spotlessly clean home. We felt comfortable from the moment we walked in. A convenient location to the beach, services, restaurants, churches, shops. Outstanding!!

We had just the most amazing time at Chris and Sandy’s condo in Anna Maria Island. The location was just fabulous, the accommodation was superb – clean with everything you might ever need - and the local amenities were perfect with little shops and great local restaurants nearby. Our two young boys (aged 7 and 9 years) loved the beaches and snorkelling (we even saw a manatee swimming alongside us one day on the beach near the Sandbar restaurant – just amazing!), going down to City Pier to watch the locals fishing while we enjoyed a sunset drink, visiting the local restaurants which were all within easy walking distance, heading off to Two Scoops for ice cream at the end of the day. It was so peaceful – just bliss! Everyone was so friendly and it seemed that this part of the island had “real” islanders and not just holiday makers so nice to meet the locals! We loved the place. Thank you Chris and Sandy for letting us stay in your delightful home and for all your recommendations along the way. All in all it was the perfect place to stay – we will definitely be back!

We had an awesome relaxing visit. My husband did not want to go home and he never feels that way on vacation. People were nice, lots of beaches to go to...VERY HUMID! But we love hanging at the water so it was perfect! We will be back...
Great location! Great condo!

The condo is directly located at the beach that is only a few steps away. A pier allows one to go fishing. This is great for everyone but especially for kids. A dock located at a canal belongs to the condo. Hence, if you have a boat or plan to rent a boat, you can let it all the time in the water at the dock. Anna Maria Island is a beautiful, calm, and not overcrowded island that enables one to relax but also to be active with fishing, boating, swimming, biking, walking, and so on.
The condo itself is clean and well furnished, ideal for up to four persons, and contains almost everything you need. A little problem is that the washing machine and the dryer are undersized so that a load of towels can be too much for these machines. However, it is possible to walk to the other end of the complex to a place with normal-sized machines. A foldable clothes drying rack that one could use outside to dry in the sun would be very helpful and could compensate this drawback. But in general, the condo is great.
This place is perfect!

Anna Maria is quaint and relaxing. The location of this condo made it even more so. It's nice to enjoy a comfortable condo in a great location. Hope to do it again.
