About the neighborhood
Truly maintaining the Old Florida Lifestyle! If you're seeking a true 'Get Away From It All' atmosphere, you'll find no fast food chains or high rises here. The Island acts as a natural exotic bird sanctuary for a wide variety of species including Pelican, Cranes, Sandpipers, Osprey, Parrots, Spoonbills, Egrets and Storks. Additionally, one can find Manatees and Bottlenose Dolphins at anytime in the Gulf, Bay or Intracoastal waterways.
Anna Maria island is the perfect family getaway for outdoor activities, as you will find nature trails, kayak tours, paddleboard tours, parasailing and horseback riding on the beach.
The free main Island Trolley stop (which covers all of Anna Maria Island) arrives approximately every half hour (7) days a week is directly across the street from the Castnetter. Of course, our White sand Beaches are unparalleled with pristine Emerald Green Waters and vibrant Sunsets. Great Fishing, Boating, Shelling and Lazy Days at the Beach...we offer it all!
