From what our repeat vacationers tell us, Camp Tarpon on Anna Maria Island is the perfect fun family vacation spot! Experience some of the best beaches and fishing on the West Coast of Florida right from your back door. This is a boating and fisherman's dream to have quick, easy and bridge-free access to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. To make this dream even better, you'll pass right by Galati's on your way out to the Gulf where you can gas up your boat and pick up some supplies. Relax as you enjoy fishing off the dock or exploring the Islands' sea-life filled waterways on kayak or paddle board. Rent a boat from the local marina or hire your own guide to take your family fishing or out to Egmont Key.
If you enjoy beach life, we are just steps away. Layout in the sun, take a walk, look for seashells or run on the 7 mile long white sandy beaches. Located on the prestigious north end of the island, Camp Tarpon is ideally situated for a leisurely walk or bike ride to the ocean, fishing piers, numerous restaurants, the community center, exploring AMI and shopping at the quaint boutiques. The City of Anna Maria has worked tirelessly to keep the tranquil north end of the island the quietest, least crowded beach available. This home is just steps away from an evening stroll to the beach to watch the spectacular sunsets every night over Tampa Bay or the Gulf of Mexico.
Feel free to skip the beach and relax in your private, peaceful resort style backyard. With a brand new tropical heated pool, lounge furniture, fun tiki hut, hammock and fabulous views, the family can enjoy relaxing together. Camp Tarpon is an elevated home, which offers magnificent views from multiple balconies. Many feel like they are in a tree house with the expansive open view of the water, beautiful landscaping, swaying palm trees, tropical breezes, fish jumping and the birds flying over.
This unique 3-bedroom home, which sleeps 8, offers spacious rooms and gorgeous views. Each room has flat screen TV's, comfortable beds with nice linens and its own private balcony.
