Waterline Villas & Marina is a boutique-sized hotel soon to be converted into a condo hotel. It’s the newest development on Anna Maria Island, near Tampa, Florida, and consists of four unique buildings clustered around a marina with direct access to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
Originally built as a hotel, it has been operating successfully since 2018 and has a large, loyal clientele of regular guests. It will offer 37 fully-furnished, turnkey condo hotel units overlooking the water when the conversion is complete.
An Autograph Collection Hotel since it opened, Waterline Villas will keep that designation as a condo hotel. Autograph Hotels are a curated collection of more than 180 unique hotels located around the world and supported by Marriott International.
Once Waterline has been converted to a condo hotel, it will continue to be managed by Mainsail Lodging & Development, a Marriott franchisee, and will therefore also continue to benefit from Marriott’s global reservation system.
Condo hotel owners will be able to use their vacation home when they’d like. When they’re not in residence, they’ll be able to place their unit into the hotel program to receive revenue.
Currently being developed is a new onsite restaurant that will overlook the pool and marina. Other amenities at Waterline Villas include:
- Elegant lobby with front desk, comfortable seating areas
