Why Tim or Kate Eiseler chose Anna Maria

We've been coming to Anna Maria since the 80's from California and loved it so much, we bought property here. We saw this cute cottage and bought it, because of the location close to everything and it's on a canal.

What makes this bungalow unique

The Landscaping is awesome, very private, lots of little places to sit and relax. We see so much wild life sitting at the canal. It's a true Paradise.

The updated Tarpon Tree House lived up to its name with plenty of tree covered back yard places to relax; including a hot tub and dock.

Also, the location accommodates getting to all the fun places on Anna Maria in minutes.

Outdoor Living

  • 5 of 5

A truly enjoyable place to spend a vacation. The house and outdoor spaces were so well equipped that at times I would rather be at the property than going out into the island. Beautiful landscape! A true gem.

Perfect Place - Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so very private. The landscaped amazing and you could not even see the neighbors. We spent time in every little nook in the back yard. The dock was so relaxing with my morning coffee. The inside is so clean and up to date also. They thought of everything. We have been to AMI three times now, and the Tarpon Treehouse is by far the best place we have stayed. The photos do NOT do this little gem any justice. It is so much more than the photos show. We will book again for sure!!!!! Scott. Melissa, and boys.
