As you know, I recently had the chance to stay on Anna Maria Island, Florida. If you missed my list of great things to do in the area, be sure to check it out here. While I was on the island, I stayed (with three fellow bloggers) in this beautiful house, named Malibu Beach from Anna Maria Vacations.

The house was absolutely incredible and here are just a few of the features:

  • Just a short 3 minute stroll to the Gulf beach.

The Malibu Beach house in particular is a newly constructed home that is tucked away on a quiet residential street on Holmes Beach. The home is professionally decorated throughout and you will feel right at home as soon as you walk through the front door and are greeted with charming coastal décor featuring blue and green accents throughout the living area.

All of the bedrooms have new HD flat screen TV’s and beautiful beachy furniture. You will have plenty of parking between the two garages and drive ways. This home also offers beach chairs and a wagon to make it an easy trip to the beach.

I FaceTimed with my kids while I was staying there and gave them the grand tour.  They are dying for me to take them down there for a family vacation.

Malibu Beach is located at 302 55th Street in Holmes Beach, Fl 34217.
