Nestled at the foot of the bridge leading to internationally-renowned Anna Maria Island, within the quaint fishing village of Cortez, this lovely home is a beach house without the Island traffic! Super-conveniently located in walking and biking distance (one-half mile) to the Island's sugar-sand beaches and gin-clear waters, it's a spacious semi-detached Tuscan-style villa with PRIVATE pool and spa (exclusively for this home!) The villa is not only elegant but also family-friendly, with a built-in "kiddie pool" and also a "baby barrier" pool safety fence, easy to set up and remove. The pool deck is surrounded by a 2-story lanai (screen enclosure) which also encompasses the balcony overlooking the pool, creating the ideal indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
Upstairs, you'll enjoy the comfortable main living area with split-plan bedrooms, and relax on the oversized balcony, where you'll find a propane BBQ grill convenient to the granite/stainless kitchen, which is well-equipped with service for 6, a dishwasher, glass cooktop, wall oven, microwave, blender, toaster oven, coffeemaker and more. The aquarium window in the breakfast nook provides a tree-top view of the lush, tropical landscaping (there's actually a green view from every window!)
Downstairs, the finished bonus area provides access to the pool deck through a wall of pocket-style sliding doors. When all the balcony and the deck sliders are opened up, this light-filled home is the essence of breezy, sunny Florida living. The master suite has a queen bed, walk-in closet, jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third bedroom has twin beds. The laundry room is separate from the kitchen, enhancing the peace and quiet provided by this superior floorplan, more spacious than other vacation rentals in Harbour Landings. You'll appreciate the visual serenity of this well-appointed villa, with elegant travertine tile in the bathrooms, and brand new carpeting in all the bedrooms!
Best of all, this coastal retreat offers much more privacy than a typical condo unit ever could. You'll enjoy a single-family residential experience, with a common wall adjoining only 1 other residence, and a circle drive on our corner lot that is not adjacent to the attached home's driveway, plus your own private 2-car garage. When you feel like socializing, take a short stroll to the clubhouse, with tennis court, community pool and fitness center. Live like a local, near shopping, boating, jet skiing, fishing, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving and para-sailing. Play golf on the Island and other nearby courses, too! Although you will not have sole use of a dock on the Harbour Landings private marina, you can enjoy the water view. Wander past the docks in the common area, on your way to the local seafood restaurants, where the day’s catch is fresh off the boat in the historic Cortez village, celebrating over 100 years of commercial fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.
