Anclote Villa - East Vacation home
This beautiful Florida vacation rental home is brand new and is located just 1 block from the beach. Relax on the huge shaded porch or around the private heated swimming pool.
This new home is in a neighborhood that has an official old Florida "historic home" and is located where the Anclote River meets the Gulf of Mexico. All linens are supplied. The kitchen has all cooking utensils. This is a very nice home. All you need is your tooth brush and your clothes.
The beautiful new Florida vacation home offers a wonderful vacation with its private heated pool, 4 bedrooms and a game room with pool table.
This ANCLOTE VILLA is a great place to enjoy Florida and have a great vacation. A fenced in back yard and private heated swimming pool are for enjoying the sun and a huge front porch with solar lights on the post caps is for enjoying the evenings and the sunsets.
Here is a view of the porch as you walk up the stairs from the driveway. This is a nice place to sit, relax, and enjoy the warm Florida breeze while watching the squirrels and other local wildlife play in the trees next to you.
As seen in the picture there is a gas grill, great for grilling while enjoying the evening by the pool.
The kitchen is connected to the living room. This is the first room you walk into as you enter from the outside porch. The kitchen comes with all the amenities.
As shown laminate floor clovers the entire house except for the bathrooms, which are tile. The "drop leaf" table has extra center leaves that expands it to seat 12 people.
The living room attaches to the kitchen. It has 2 52 inch ceiling fans, one in the living area and one in the kitchen.
The room has many big windows which are ideal for opening up and just sitting around enjoying the weather and the view.
The Master Bedroom has an attached full bathroom and a television. This bed is a King size bed
The window from this room overlooks the fenced in swimming pool that is in the back yard.
This is the first bedroom. This is a Queen size bed. It also has a view of the swimming pool from the window.
This room has very nice furniture and a comfortable bed.
The second bedroom has two sets of bunk beds in it. One of the bunks had a full sized bed on bottom and a single on the top. The other bunk has a single on the bottom and a single on top.

There is a county park (Anclote River Park) that is walking distance from the ANCLOTE VILLA. It is a local beach, much nicer than Clearwater beach. There is ample beach area and SHADE area to escape the sun. On Clearwater you have to "rent shade" from a vendor of umbrellas.
This picture was taken in December 2007 during the ICE and SNOW storms up north... Notice that some of the folks are in the shade because the sun is still strong and hot in December.
These beach pictures are all of the "ANCLOTE RIVER PARK" which is walking distance from ANCLOTE VILLA.
As you can see, this beach is not so crowded that you have to step over (or on) people to get to the water.
In the background you can see the GULF of Mexico. This park is located where the ANCLOTE River hits the GULF of Mexico
During the summer months the water is warm.. 85+ and is like a warm bath tub.
The Anclote River Park offers something for everybody. This person has found a "spot away from the crowd"... There are LOTS of secluded spots like this in the park..
This not the beach for those that like the "hustle and bustle" of a tourist environment with lots of scantly clad teenagers running about...
There are picnic tables and benches overlooking the GULF of MEXICO. Beside the picnic tables are BBQ pits where you can grill up your favorites... hot dogs and hamburgers... or chicken and steak..
There are also horseshoe pits with accurately laid out horseshoe posts in a "playing area"...
Truly a park that offers something for everyone... SUN and SHADE... This is another of the December 2007 pictures when the ICE / SNOW storms were hitting the northern and central part of the US....
Within walking distance of the ANCLOTE VILLA vacation homes.
This is one of my favorite restaurants. Ms. Vickie's is a "Tiki Bar" style restaurant with "inside tables" and a bar.. as well as outside tables.
There is a huge oak tree in the middle of the wooden deck serving area.
Their sandwiches are my favorite.. blackened fish sandwich for me ! The have a "full menu" with dinners, sandwiches, salads, appitizers, ice cold beer, wine, etc..
It is located on the Anclote River and is WALKING DISTANCE from the ANCLOTE VILLA vacation homes.
Ms. Vickie's is located on the ANCLOTE MARINA property and many professional fishing guides use this fish cleaning station to clean their catch.. On the right is one of Ms Vickie's patrons watching the fishing pros clean the catch for their client.
This is a typical sunset that is seen from Ms. Vickie's Restaurant.
Here is a daytime picture of the same fish cleaning station as in the above picture. Notice that the Pelicans also come to Ms Vickie's to eat fresh fish !
There are both "flats" guides and "offshore" fishing trips available from the fishing guides and boats that hang out at the Anclote River Marina.
In addition to the good food, many people come to the restaurant to enjoy the beautiful sunsets.
Here is a typical sunset and a young couple enjoying it from one of the benches that have been positioned by the "expert sunset watching bench positioning person"...
Here is one of the greatest fishermen of all time enjoying a sunset at Ms. Vickie's. This is my Uncle Harry....
As he told this fishing story about the largest redfish he ever caught and bragging about it being the largest ever caught in the USA... it measured 12 and 1/2 inches... I began to think... That is not really a big red fish...
You see, I personally have caught red fish in the 35+ inch range... so I hesitantly pointed out to Uncle Harry that I did not think his red fish was all that big...
Uncle Harry just looked at me and said.... "Son, I am from Texas originally and I don't know how you all measure your fish in Florida, but in Texas we measure them between the eyes."
There are pontoon boats available for daily rentals at the Anclote Village Marina. Here is the Phone number (727) 937-9737
These are great boats for the family to go exploring the islands off shore like Anclote Island, Three Rooker Bar, and others.
The fellow on the right is Rich Knox, one of the premier fishing guides on this coast of Florida.
We are sure you will have questions and will be glad to talk to you about any aspect of our beautiful vacation homes.
