Booked a last minute vacation to Anna Maria and were fortunate to find this gem was available. Just recently built, this house had everything we could ask for. The 5 bedrooms were perfect for our family and you could not beat the backyard with its beautiful tropical lagoon style pool with table and shallow beach area. The couch and extra large umbrella made for very relaxing evenings by the pool. The house has a balcony from one of the en-suite kings that over looks the pool and has another balcony off the upstairs king suite that over looks the street in front of the house. Grilled out many times on the full size grill on the patio and cooked many meals in their gourmet kitchen. LOVED the fridge and soda stream!! They had everything we needed to make meals for the entire family and spared no expense when it came to high quality dishes and silverware! :) Even had containers for the extra food we made. The only thing missing was measuring spoons. The couch is very comfy for relaxing on after a day in the sun and full size tv's in each room made it easy for everyone to watch their own show! Although they didn't get turned on too much....too much to do!!
The beds were phenomenal with the softest sheets I had ever slept on...never slept so good. And the bathrooms were beautiful with granite counter tops and walk in showers built big enough for 5 people! Tons of towels were provided including some for the beach and pool.
We loved having the two car garage which was big enough to hold our 20 ft. boat btw. Then enough space in the driveway for extra cars.
The walk to the beach was only 2 minutes which is an amazing beach with beautiful white sand and amazing sunsets!! There are 2 bikes in the garage with a beach cart in case you need to haul all your stuff over there. We rented a golf cart for the week which I highly recommend. Fun times were had by all on that all week :)
Only thing I would suggest is some more cleaning products such as a mop or Swiffer and maybe more rugs at doors and in kitchen as the sand comes in from everywhere! Other than that, the stay was perfect!! Emma and Mike were awesome with every request we had. Even with the initial arrival not going as planned, they fixed everything perfectly and we couldn't have anything but praise for them!
We HIGHLY suggest trips to Anna Maria Doughnuts and Two Scoops Ice Cream shop. We frequented them often in our weeks stay!!
We hope to make a return visit in the future!
