Property Review for Holiday Proprerty 1074 – Florida, Gulf Coast, Anna Maria Island Updated By Ownersrentals.com on 04 March 2012
The Pirates Den is a small resort situated on Anna Maria Island, the Island described as "how Florida used to be, just Palm Trees, Pelicans and Beaches". Our family run resort offers 4, 2 bedroomed apartments and 2 &1bedroomed cottages, all fully equipped and with heated pool. We are situated across the road from the beautiful unspoilt beach and the clear warm water of the Gulf of Mexico. Stretching across 7.5 miles of pristine sugar white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, Anna Maria Island is a perfect retreat for those that truly want to get away from it all and discover the charm of old Florida.
Anna Maria Island is located on Florida's Southwest Coast, and is just south of Tampa Bay, Florida's Gulf Islands of Anna Maria and Longboat Key and the Greater Bradenton Area. You can easily access the area by automobile as well as two major international airports. There are also shuttle services from the airports to Anna Maria Island. While on the Island you can get around by foot quite easily, or rent a bike or rollerblades and you can also take advantage of the free trolley service.
Year-round sunshine, a warm tropical climate and water temperatures averaging in the 80's, so don’t forget to pack your sunscreen!
