About the property

The best of the best on Anna Maria!

Look for us on the 2015 Anna Maria Island Tour of Homes!!

Whispering Winds is a brand new custom built home that was just completed in August of 2014 by Kimball Construction the premier builder on Anna Maria Island!

This home has it all; no detail has been over-looked from the stainless appliances to the crown moldings and the heart pine planked flooring.

You are just steps to the direct bay beach access from the pool courtyard and cabana areas where you will enjoy many evenings while experiencing the cool breezes from the Bay on the desirable North end of Anna Maria Island. You are also just steps from the Rod N Reel Pier and Bayfront Park. Venture a bit further and you can enjoy the great shops and restaurants on Pine Avenue and have access to the free trolley! 3/10 of a mile to the Gulf Beaches!!

Up one flight of stairs you will find the exquisite kitchen and tastefully furnished living area featuring tongue and groove ceilings and you will experience incredible views of the bay and the beaches. The eat-in kitchen features stainless appliances, Cambria solid surface countertops, glass tile backsplash and plenty of storage area. The comfortable living area features a large flat screen TV if you ever get tired of looking at that view! There is also a full bath on the main level.

If you thought the views were great from the kitchen and living room wait until you see them from the top level where the 2 Queen Bedrooms are located along with another full bath and balcony.

Whispering Winds is the ideal place to kick back and relax with all the comforts of home but if you must stay in touch with the real world there’s flat screen TV’s, Free Long Distance to US, CA and PR as well as free WiFi

Beautiful home....great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time on our family vacation in this home! The location was perfect for us, with close proximity to the beach, park and shops in town. The house is very nicely done and well appointed. The only disappointment for us was the construction across the street that significantly obstructs the view of the water from the balcony off the bedrooms. It was still very nice out there, but the pictures need to be updated to reflect the current view.

Owner's Response: Daniel, Glad you loved everything about Whispering Winds! We do too and for all of the same reasons!! I don't believe you had visited with us before so I'm not sure what you are comparing the views to but we didn't feel it was much of an impact on our view. We will of course take new photos when the construction is complete but there is still some finish work that needs to be done. Please do come back to visit soon.

Awesome beach rental.

  • 5 of 5

Awesome beach rental. We will rent again. The only issue was small bugs in the kitchen. I could not figure out why but needs to be addressed.

Owner's Response: Troy, So glad you enjoyed Whispering Winds and will be back to see us. We do appreciate your review and your return visit!! The small "bug" you are referring to are actually sugar ants which are quite common in Florida. They are often attracted to items left out on the counters. Anytime you have ANY issue please let our agent know immediately. They could have taken care of the issue for you the same day you let them know!! Thanks again and the ants have left the building!!!

Amazing Whispering Winds

  • 5 of 5

We spent two amazing weeks in an amazing pet friendly home in an amazing location. The vast and beautiful beach only steps away. The possibility to rent bikes or golf carts simplified by delivery to the home. The Anna Maria Family Center minutes away with a complete and fully equipped gym (and classes) with membership. The Farmer’s Market infront of the Anna Maria Pier that had fresh and delicious fruits and veggies every Tuesday. We enjoyed the functionality of the kitchen which benefits from the wonderful morning light as sun rises making preparing our meals a pleasure and the view of the ocean from the kitchen sink is something that is beyond wonderful! We slept well on comfortable beds. The house was spotless when we arrived and everything was clean and the towels and bedsheets. The pool area with the cabana is perfect and its small fridge is very useful to keep cold drinks at hand. If you love to cook, bring your chef knife and a large non-stick pan from home but otherwise you will find everything you need there. This house welcomes you as if it is « home » from the minute you walk in. Leaving Whispering Winds was truly a heartbreaking experience. Our only solace was that we booked next year before we left. We enjoyed every minute of our stay, didnt want to leave, will go back as soon as possible. Anna Maria Island is the only reason why I think America is ALREADY great!!! Thanks to Bob and Suzanne for always being there for us if we needed anything. See you guys soon;)

Owner's Response: Normand, Thank you for this wonderful review on Whispering Winds, I’m glad that you had an amazing 2 weeks at our home! You really can’t beat its location with the beautiful views and being such a short walk to Pine Avenue. Ellie, Bob and Suzanne do a great job of looking after our guests and home. The Farmer’s Market is a welcome addition to the neighborhood and a nice gathering place for locals and guests! The Anna Maria Center is also close by where they have a fitness center, tennis courts, pickleball and a playground. They offer monthly, weekly and day passes at very reasonable rates. It’s great that you feel right at home at Whispering Winds and the surrounding area, we look forward to seeing you next year!

The house itself is beautiful. The pool and the area surrounding the pool were great.

  • 4 of 5

The house was furnished very well and had plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas. The only complaint I would have is that the house itself is very loud. It’s all wood floors and noise travels everywhere. Overall, it’s a very clean and well taken care of house.

Owner's Response: Dana, Glad you enjoyed your stay at Whispering Winds and liked the furnishings and the amenities provided. Although this is the first time anyone has mentioned a noise issue we will of course look into it. Perhaps a couple of area rugs will do the trick? Thanks for taking the time to review our home and please do come back to see us soon!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We could not of asked for a more perfect place to stay on Anna Maria Island. The home was in the perfect location and waking up to a beautiful bay view every morning was such a treat.

Highly recommend renting bikes to explore this charming island. I hope to come back some day and would definitely rent the same home.

Owner's Response: Karen, Thank you for your glowing review on Whispering Winds, I’m glad that you found it to be the perfect place to stay! The balcony off of the bedrooms is a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee while spotting dolphins. At ground level you have the option of sunbathing by the pool or retreating to the open cabana room to relax and catch the breeze off the bay. Anna Maria is a wonderful place for bike riding or just going out for a stroll. We would love to hear back from you when planning your return trip!
