Situated on a peaceful residential street, Blue Waters offers a lovely canal water view, private dock with brand new boat lift and easy access to the intra-coastal waterway.

The poolside office will allow you to catch up on any pressing business matters, before enjoying the rest of your day by the pool. Extending the entire length of the back of the home is a fabulous second floor terrace equipped with rocking chairs, sofas and tables, ideal for breakfast or an evening glass of wine while watching the sunset and local wildlife. 


Blue Waters light and airy interiors will also delight you.  The owner's attention to detail has created a spacious, superbly appointed home away from home.

High-speed internet, cable TV and flat screen televisions in every bedroom complete the entertainment experience for guests. (Please note: the fireplace is NOT for guest use)


Superbly located and meticulously maintained, Blue Waters sleeps eight in the comfort and privacy of their own bedroom suites.  It has a two vehicle garage, plenty of guest parking and bringing your own boat is easy with the private dock and lift.

Recent Reviews About This Property

Wow, just wow!

Wow, just wow!

We were fortunate enough to enjoy a perfectly relaxing time at Blue Waters for 11 fabulous days, following a hectic short break in Orlando staying at the Universal Studios Portofino Bay Hotel. No matter how good the hotel was, it couldn't compete with the special style and luxury of this wonderful villa. It's obviously been lovingly designed and furnished by the owners to an exceptionally high standard, creating a pristine and supremely comfortable home from home.

It's ideally located in the north of Anna Maria, just minutes walk from the beach. We were able to stroll down to the squeaky fine sands, towing the beach cart with four chairs most evenings to enjoy the spectacular sunsets and dive-bombing gulls, splashing into the ocean in search of fish.

The villa is close to a wide range of fine shops and restaurants, again within easy walking distance - or via the convenient free trolley bus which we were able to catch at the end of the avenue to take us down to the City Pier.

But if you really want to chill out, there's no need to look any further than the gorgeous back yard and patio. There are lots of lovely sun-drenched or shaded positions set around the magnificent pool - and the heated spa was a very popular spot for a relaxing or invigorating session.

The TV, sound system and indeed all the appliances are high spec - and the soft furnishings are fresh and classy. But it was difficult to resist the outdoor charms of the villa and so the vast majority of our waking hours were spent under the sun or stars, with many evenings enjoying a glass or three of wine on the private upper balcony.

With the canal running right at the rear of the property, we just had to make the most of its proximity, so we rented a tandem kayak from Beach Bums on Pine Avenue for a couple of days and had a fantastic time paddling across Bimini Bay and out into the gulf, right from the back door!

Big thanks to Caroline and Reg for letting us stay, we made some wonderful memories at Blue Waters. Don't think twice about renting this property, you'll simply love it.

We were on Anna Maria Island for a wedding...

"

We were on Anna Maria Island for a family wedding and could not have found a better place to stay for the week. Everything about the house was perfect for our entire family. The kitchen is a dream to cook in and made cooking dinner for extended family a breeze. The beds were all very comfortable and the living room was a great place to hang out and catch up with everyone.

We spent a lot of time hanging out in and around the pool as well as on the beach. The only small complaint we had was the inability to use the beach wagon in the garage, but we rented one from Beach Bums when we rented bicycles. We also rented kayaks and had a wonderful time paddling out into the bay. We didn't see any manatees until we were almost back in front of the house when one swam right under us! The second trip out we saw dolphins and another manatee. The little ones had a great time sitting on the dock watching for manatees.

We really appreciated the binder with all restaurant suggestions and were able to walk down to the Sand Bar for the wedding. We also appreciated the flexibility of being able to rent Sunday to Sunday as most rentals require Saturday to Saturday which isn't very convenient when a wedding is on a Saturday evening.

We were impressed by the responsiveness of Island Realty when we called with one small issue - they followed up twice to make sure it was taken care of. Several other extended family members remarked what a special house we found and I wouldn't be surprised if one of them rented Blue Waters in the future. Thank you for a wonderful house and a wonderful week on AMI!

A beautiful holiday home that will surely impress

"I had the pleasure of staying at Blue Waters for 10 days and had a fantastic experience. The house offers everything that one could possibly ask for. The kitchen/lounge is beautifully open planned and ideal for social purposes. The furniture is comfortable and the kitchen is a great size and has everything you need. The bedrooms are a good size and as I was staying upstairs, I enjoyed stretching my legs on the balcony that stretched the width of the house and gave me great views of the pool and the lake out back, a great way to start the morning. Entertainment is clearly paramount and the pool table, several flat screen TVs, sound system with speakers all round the house were ideal for when indoors. On top of this, the pool and jacuzzi got a lot of use and has a great bbq out back. The lake gave us the chance to fish off the back and the house has two kayaks which we made good use of to boot. As far as location goes, it is situated on a nice quiet residential road but only moments from quite a few restaurants and bars as well as Pine Avenue. To make the best use of this, we hired bicycles for the trip and was able to cycle pretty much anywhere on the island within 5-10 minutes, this includes both piers and the beach is even closer. All in all, the trip was thoroughly enjoyable and looking at some of the other properties, I personally didn't see any better than this and will definitely be returning and staying again. "

A Mediterranean Paradise

"This Mediterranean style home is beautifully crafted to accomadate for a luxurious island get-a-way. The space, furnishings, and private outdoor amentities such as a pool and dock makes staying there comfortable and dreamy. The location of the home is perfect for a walk to the beach and riding bikes around to the quaint shops and indulgent resturants. Truly this is one of the best homes on Anna Maria. "

Thank you!

"We were lucky enough to spend a few days here in March. A stunning home, both inside and out. The house is beautifully furnished and very spacious. We enjoyed spending time in the lovely pool and at the grill. So nice to be just minutes away from the beach, the shops, and fantastic local restaurants. One of the best vacations we've ever had! "

Perfect Luxury Home!

"This luxurious home, just minutes from the beach, was so comfortable! We had so much fun relaxing by the pool. The furniture is gorgeous and contemporary and clean. At sunset we had a barbecue on the grill, which was poolside. This quiet neighborhood is right around the corner from bike rentals, bakeries, and the most delicious fresh seafood you can find! It had everything we needed with a fully stocked kitchen. I absolutely loved this house!"

Very upscale, well appointed, luxury home.

"

This well appointed home is like something out of HGTV with high end furniture, appliances, and kitchen ware. The home has several large flat screen TVs and an integrated sound system. The game room, beautifully furnished lanai, pool and hot tub cannot be beat. You can fish in the intercostal behind the home or on one of three island piers. Many restaurants are within a short walk. The neighborhood is very quiet. A fantastic property for a luxurious vacation!

Top Notch!

"

We really enjoyed our time in this Villa on Anna Maria Island. We are 2 families (8 in total) and this Villa was ideal. It is well appointed with a lovely and relaxing outside area. The Island of Anna Maria is charming with very friendly local people and a good range of local amenities and restaurants. We would like to return one day!

Thank you for a wonderful fortnight!!

My partner and I loved every minute at Blue Waters! The property was spotless, clearly well cared for and beautifully designed. I loved the open plan space downstairs, and the huge flat screens, cable TV, selection of DVDs (and books, boardgames and billiards table) were huge plus when it was too hot to spend very long outdoors. As a poor swimmer, I really enjoyed the chance to improve in the private pool (miraculously always the perfect temperature), and my partner loved sitting on the dock fishing. We loved the french doors that link almost every room to the outdoors. We especially enjoyed being able to play our music on the garden speakers while in the pool, or eating dinner. The barbecue was also amazing - and we didn't hesitate to grill some local lobster tail (absolutely delicious). The location is excellent - and just a five minute walk to the unbelievably beautiful white sand beach! The dock also leads straight to the sea, and even if you don't have a boat, you can kayak to the beach, like we did! I'd only kayaked once before (about 10 years ago!) but the water is shallow and clear enough that even a shoddy swimmer like myself could handle it. The owners and Island Real Estate were great, and did everything they could to make our stay as relaxing as possible. I would definitely recommend Blue Waters to anyone who would listen! All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at Blue Waters - it felt like a home away from home. The locals call Anna Maria 'paradise' and it's easy to see why! We can't wait for our next stay!

Gorgeous House in Great Location

"We have just enjoyed a wonderful vacation at Blue Waters. This is a lovely, stylish and spacious house, which we found extremely comfortable, well equipped & with excellent support from Island Real Estate. We have rented vacation homes in various parts of Florida over the past 20 years and this is easily the best. We really enjoyed the lovely pool and hot tub and the great canal-side setting. The master suite is lovely, with a gorgeous bathroom and spacious dressing room and the bedroom opens onto a nice balcony to enjoy our morning coffee. Anna Maria is a lovely island and the North end, where Blue Waters is located, really has a village feel to it. It's just a short stroll to the beach, to the Pier and to the great shops, cafés and restaurants of the Pine Avenue area. We hired bikes for a week, easy cycling and we really enjoyed exploring all the back lanes & spotting the abundant bird life. We certainly hope to return soon!"
