Vista Grande #1 -- Direct View of Gulf of Mexico!

Sweeping direct views of the Gulf from this exclusive vacation rental.

By far the BEST direct view of the Gulf you will find on Anna Maria Island. Exclusive condo with sweeping views of the Gulf from kitchen, dining and living rooms. Relax on the wrap around balcony while enjoying the sea breezes and stunning sunsets.

Top of the line luxury throughout entire three bedroom and three bath executive retreat with fireplace - just one of four in the impressive Vista Grande. It's hard for words to describe this Mediterranean Tuscan condo whose interior and exterior are designed to look like a large exclusive mansion on the beach. Your front yard is the beach and pristine Gulf waters. Free wireless internet.

Families are welcome at this luxury vacation rental destination. Sleeps up to 6. Check-in is 3pm and check-out is 10am.

Review of Property for Week of Feb 15-22, 2011

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful three-bedroom condo in a great location. It is spacious, with significant features that are probably better than your own home. Master BR and bath that has multi-directional shower heads and jacuzzi. Two other BR's that share a bathroom. One king bed and two queens. A third bath in hallway leading to BR's. Living area spacious enough for six guests. Lovely balcony large enough to accomodate six guests with a sunset view. Our unit was on second floor, accessible by elevator. Adequate parking.

A heated pool and hottub are part of the four unit building. The walk to the beach is very short, suitable for older guests. Beach chairs available for you. The beach is north of the busier areas to the south, so it is not over-populated.

The temperatures were generally in the 75 degree range during the day, and 55 degree range in the evenings. There are multiple restaurants nearby, all very nice, but guests need a car. Only a few restaurants are within walking distance. The island shuts down early, about 9 pm, but Sarasota is nearby.

Highly recommended for relaxing times at the beach.
