Tarpon Treehouse

A Canal Front Hideaway

Welcome to the Tarpon Tree House on beautiful Anna Maria Island’s north end in the City of Anna Maria.   Situated on a natural, mangrove lined canal, our home is so named for the atmosphere provided by the many trees & palms we have planted over the years.

This charming, very private, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, beach bungalow has all the amenities needed for the perfect, relaxing/active vacation at your home away from home.

Our canal front location is perfect for boaters, kayakers, fisherman and nature lovers. Many species of seabirds & fish join the occasional manatee for entertainment from the rocking chairs on our shaded dock.

The Tarpon Tree House is just a short walk to the beaches of the Bay and the Gulf. It is conveniently located to the City Pier and attractions on Pine Avenue & Gulf Drive.  Our central Anna Maria address also provides for quick access to the Gulf & Bay by water.  A free Trolly is available to take you throughout the island.

What a great relaxing time we had at your Tree House. Thank you for your hospitality and use of the fishing gear with super results from the dock. “Red fish you are hooked”.
We look forward to returning again soon to this great Island Retreat.

Mike & I had a wonderful week at the Treehouse. It’s a perfect little escape from reality. The house itself is lovely and having access to our boat made it even more enjoyable. I hope to refer others and we hope to return someday soon.
Janice & Mike

What a talent you have for creating a special, little paradise getaway. every detail from the beautiful and unique decor inside to the foliage, trees and semi-secluded nooks outside, creating the feel of being secluded on an island!
Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Hope to return again.
Thank you for sharing your special place!
Laurie, Bill and Bonnie

Thank you so much for the wonderful place you have provided. We have enjoyed our stay very much. We love the privacy your home provided. This was a wonderful place to spend our honeymoon. We can’t wait to come back.
Kara & Jacob

After a wonderful month here, we’ve decided to find a place to buy. Part of that has been the inspiration of your exert and artful landscaping. It makes all the difference. We have a long history here in Anna Maria, since 1968, and this place more than any honors the sense of place this community always has had.
Thanks for a great vacation.
Steve & Elaine

We are so glad we came back as we had another relaxing holiday. Love the dock, garden and wildlife including Scruffy and Precious (not that they are wild!).
We appreciate the extra welcoming touches you provide and hope to return again,
Sincere Best Wishes,
Kit & Bob

We were in love when we opened the front door. The cottage is oh so cute and the landscaping, and dock are so serene – meditation in the air!! Really enjoyed the 3rd Tuesday Party on Pine – highly recommend it, just tops the flavor of the Island.
It’s going to be hard to leave, but we will be back next year. If in KY, we’ve got lots of room and you’re always welcome.
Thanks again for providing such a sweet place to connect with all things of nature.

We had a wonderful vacation here on Anna Maria Island Your cottage was perfect to dock our rented boat for a few days. The location allowed us to ride bikes or walk to the beach to see the sunset.
Favorites: Sitting in the hammock, listening to the birds and feeling the nice breeze.
Fishing off the dock was fun too. Finding a whole sand dollar on the beach this afternoon was the perfect completion to an awesome vacation.
Take care,
Andy & Kim

Wow!! We absolutely loved this homey little bungalow. It really held us well. So many beautiful nooks and retreats and quiet little amenities. What a treat.
You guys have great taste, absolutely love the floor, super cool. Coffee grinder is our gift the the Tarpon Tree House.
Glen & Michelle

Lovely home, lovely decor and wonderful extras – beach chairs etc! Saw manatees including 1 by the dock. Wonderful time, wonderful relaxing experience.
Leah & Bev

We had a fabulous time here at the Tarpon Tree House. A little manatee greeted us the day we arrived. Birds sang and the sunsets were beautiful!. We walked to the Sandbar Restaurant for dinner – it was great food and an easy walk.
So nice to pull the boat into the dock and be “home”. We hope to be able to come back again – the weekend was wonderful, Celebrating out anniversary.
Steve & Maureen

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We had a fabulous time. Your cottage is a lovely place. Our girls enjoyed Precious and Scruffy and the turtle. Our boat fit in the dock perfectly and we enjoyed the amazing blue green water everyday.
We love Anna Maria and will be back again.
Thanks so much,
John, Holly, Courtney and Lindsey

We had a wonderful time at the Tarpon Tree House – It was far beyond our expectations. It was truly a paradise in a paradise – We hope to return in the future.
Adrienne, Blake & Freda

We had a wonderful time at your lovely Tarpon Tree House. We spent our days kayaking, fishing and dolphin watching. We had lunch at the Rod N Reel Pier, it was delicious! We also walked to the Sandbar to watch the sunset, which was a nice walk and a beautiful view.
Thanks so much, we hope to come back again one day.
Megan, Joseph and Katie

Thank you for your hospitality. The house was beautiful and we felt like the backyard was our own private paradise. We loved the privacy and the great dock for fishing. We really enjoyed biking. We’ve been to the island many times but we never had the chance to ride bikes to the beach, pier, etc. It was a lot of fun!
We’re sad to return home, but we hope to return one day soon!
Alison & Dan

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home. It is charming and cozy – we felt right at hone during our stay this labor day. The backyard is a true paradise – full of life and beauty. The hot tub is quite relaxing after a long day out on our boat. This is a great location too – so close to everything!
Thanks again for your warm hospitality – the extra little touches were very thoughtful.
We are going to tell all our friends about this place – Highly recommended!!
Lee & Tina

We loved our time at the Tarpon Tree House. The house is a perfect size, perfectly equipped and great location. The use of space both indoors and out is great, and we enjoyed lounging around “at home” just as much as on the beach.
Thank you and we hope to be back!
Susan & David

Your cottage in Anna Maria was the perfect place for our vacation. As it happens, the coldest weather Boston has recorded in years occurred while we were walking the beautiful beaches here.
We loved sitting on the dock and watching the birds – herons, osprey, egrets, storks – hunting and fishing, while we relaxed in the beautiful light and vegetation.
Anna Maria Island is a grear place! Gloriaias beaches, friendly people, erratic for walking and no snow.
Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to us – we hope to return again.
Sue and Bruce

The Tree House is everything we expected and much mre. Quiet and enveloping – perfect.
Great to have a chance to meet you and sit and talk with you. Hope we see you next year.
Tom and Sarah

Thank you so much for offering your home to us! This is such a charming place – we have never visited AMI before, so we had no idea what a perfect location Tarpon Tree House is —-we brely got in the car all week!!
We discovered shore fishing on the north end – caught a flounder, shovel head harks, pompano, whiting, among many others.
Again, this was the best retreat and vacation ever!!
Be Well,
Rachael, Julie and Renee

Your beautiful home was the perfect setting for our Spring Break get-away. We enjoyed the lush plantings and quiet street. We walked or biked must of the time – didn’t use the car much at all.
We appreciated all the extras – we had everything we needed.
Hope we can visit again soon.
Jeff and Judy

Thank you for offering your beautiful cottage to us! We had a wonderful time and this house was exactly what we were looking for. We even managed without a car – biking and walking everywhere.
Anna Maria Island is a beautiful place and we’re looking forward to coming back next year!
Jeff and Jean

We love, love, love, your beautiful Tree House!! We rode our bikes everywhere! We loved all the nature that surrounds this place, bird watching, fishing, finding little black crabs on the dec, Scruffy and Precious and especially the trees! It actually turned out to be a good thing my brother wa unable to join us. It allowed the 4 of us to reconnect as a family, life is very busy back home and this place allowed us to spend”quality” time together with out interruption.
Thank you so, so much for renting to us. We will be back for sure!
All our best,
Jake, Alicia, Doug and Nico
