Discover Old Florida in Anna Maria Island

Like its name infers, Anna Maria is surrounded by water. From the Gulf of Mexico to the west, Tampa Bay and Anna Maria Sound to the east and Sarasota Bay to the south, the village's enormous appeal is thanks mainly to its friendly, easy-going inhabitants and laid-back tropical lifestyle. Anna Maria is one of three small villages located on Anna Maria Island. Anna Maria is an "Old Florida" beach resort that families love to visit year after year.

One visit to Anna Maria and you and your family will be conjuring excuses to come back again. A great place for a family, retirement or even a second home. Let us show you what old Florida charm is all about.

As a local Realtor, I have an endless amount of memories spending long sunny days on the beautiful shoreline of Anna Maria Island. Whether we anchored our boat off of the beach or drove our car for a scenic drive down the island - "AMI" holds a very special place in my heart. My husband, Danny, and I love to bring our own children here and take them to some of our favorite restaurants. For a day with the kids, we suggest trying out The Sandbar Restaurant or the Beach House Restaurant. If it's just you and your significant other, we suggest a table for 2 at The Beach Bistro. You won't be disappointed!
