There are many residential lifestyles to choose from in Southwest Florida, but only Anna Maria Island is truly unique in the sense that it lets house hunters experience a perfect combination of charming real estate, pristine nature and quality of life.
Anna Maria Island is the northernmost of the Sarasota Keys; the long stretch of barrier islands located right off the coasts of Manatee and Sarasota Counties. Anna Maria Island is not as narrow as its sister cays to the south, which makes it even more ideal for exploring on foot. Home shoppers looking for the best ocean views in Southwest Florida take note: Anna Maria Island offers the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Tampa Bay to the east and north.
Residents of Anna Maria Island take pride in preserving not just the rich flora and fauna of their amazing community, which is supported by the Audubon Society as a paradise for bird watchers visiting the Sunshine State. There is also the Old Florida historical heritage, which is represented by many of its well-maintained real estate offerings.
Most of the housing opportunities in Anna Maria Island consist of single-family residences that range from beachfront bungalows and townhouses to impressive Mediterranean-style estates. Lots ready for development arrive on the market every now and then. This is a three square mile housing market that offers diversity in both residential architecture and pricing.
Anna Maria Island is far from being a tourist trap. Visitors here enjoy spending their honeymoons in a quiet paradise that is devoid of high-rise condominium or kitsch. Life here is idyllic and relaxed; it is perfect for artists, ecotourists, history buffs, fishing enthusiasts and families looking for a safe and nurturing place to live.
Living in Anna Maria Island does not mean being isolated from the conveniences and comforts of modern suburban life. A few shops, restaurants and art galleries dot the island, and the commercial district of Holmes Beach is just minutes away. Bradenton is a bit further inland. Young residents can attend the fine public schools of Manatee County, and residents will find plenty of work and business opportunities in the nearby Tampa Bay and Southwest Florida regions.
