My husband and I have been to Anna Maria Island 3 time now and the location of this house and the beach was the best by far! Instead of going across the street to the beach, we walked two blocks south and went on that beach access. Much better area. Ken provided everything that you could possibly need for a day at the beach...the cabana was our favorite and we liked having the wagon for convience. The house was very spacious and clean. The only negative thing is the bottom level smelling like mildew which you have to go through to open the garage doors. Other than that we loved the house and wouldn't hesitate renting again. We also could tell that the owner spends a lot of time there the way the kitchen was stocked with not only the dishes and everyday things but also the "extras" such as huggies for your cans or bottles, little cheese spreaders, trays, blender etc. There was also leftover baggies and saran wrap that was super convenient! The house also has a lot of extra touches that make you feel like your home and the decor was very tasteful. We loved our week at Island Time! In fact we loved it so much that we are now doing research on possibly buying on that end of the island!
