Each time autumn and winter come back in my rainy and rather cold country I like to remember my vacation at Carissa Beach House. I spent my vacation there for about 8 years at different periods of the year, between May and October. I have wonderful memories of my various stays at Carissa Beach House.
The island is wonderful and peaceful. The beach is very close to the house, the sand is white and surrounded by lots of birds. The apartment is cosy, well equiped, quiet and extremely clean. The owner, Snoopy Gates, is a very friendly person and has an extremely good knowledge of the surroundings. She is a wealth of information concerning the various places to visit.
I can only recommend Carissa Beach House for a relaxing unforgettable vacation.
We had a great holiday at your apartment, if heaven exist it is at Carissa Str. !
We spent a wonderfull time at your place, so confortable and idealy situated. We did not realize before that you lived so close to the sea, it was really relaxing going for walks along the beach.
Anna Maria is a quiet little place but not far from cities.
We hope to come back and find ourselves again in your garden.
What a cute little rental! Cozy and very clean. Close to shops for browsing and buying, close to the library, post office, laundromat (for a rainy day), and even a few restaurants.
The website for this rental is accurate and represents Carissa Beach House well. Follow the paver walkway at the side of the house to your own private entrance. The patio served us as an extra room, expanding our living space -- lovely! And with the long, wide beach only about a block away, an easy walk, I loved the location.
The knowledgeable owner lives on the premises. She has a true love of Anna Maria Island and is willing to share her favorite spots. She also is a great source for finding things to do -- art fairs, golf courses, restaurants, etc. off the island.
For many years our stays at Carissa Beach House have served as a nice introduction to wintering in Florida.
The Carissa Beach House apartment was as sweet and charming as we had hoped. Superbly clean and well equipped,totally private as well as located within walking distance to the most gorgeous beach! The trolley stops are easy to walk to. We didn't use our car once the whole week we were there! Snoopy is a gracious host and has a wealth of information about all the activities available on Anna Maria Island. We followed her advice and went over to Cortez for fresh fish, and also took the lovely Bay Walk at the South end of the island. We checked out her favorite beach spots and eating places. We rented a laser from beach Bums on Pine Ave for some sailing on the bay. It was a fantastic week. An amazing bargain for Spring Break!
Carissa Beach House was the first property we had ever obtained over the internet, so were worried if what we saw was really an accurate description. Upon arrival the house was just as it had been described, perfect in every way, clean, modern and with all the conviences one could ever want in a vacation home. However, the only negative thing we can say is it did not have a washer and dryer.
The owner provided verbal and written instructions on what was expected of her tennents. Countless brochures and maps of local attractions and resaurants were also made available.
The beach was just a short walk away, as was the library, and gift shops.
This location would be perfect for a retired active couple.
We had never been to this area before and would have liked more activies and attractions to be able to take part in.
Enjoyed having the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island so close to us. A quiet and pretty residential neighbourhood, offering, within a
short walking distance, shops and an open air market. The market had a good variety of fresh produce, baking and crafts. Also enjoyed
the short walk to the library, and harbour (bayside). It is only a short drive to Bradenton, where there are plenty of shopping plazas, and outlet malls. The island restaurants offer beautiful gulf views, and, or, bay views. Longboat Key is a short drive, or (free) trolley ride south of
Anna Maria Island. A bit further south and you have Lido Key with the
exclusive shops of St Armand's Circle. There are several local festivals
and craft shows during the winter months, (depending on the timing of
your visit). We were very impressed with the local Publix store, and it's employees.
The owner made every effort to ensure that our stay was a
pleasant one. There is individual parking and a private patio area that
has a southern exposure. The unit is very roomy and clean and there is wireless and cable service for added convenience.
Carissa Beach house is located in Holmes Beach on beautiful Anna Maria Island.
Anna Maria Island is divided in 3 cities: Anna Maria City, Holmes Beach & Bradenton Beach. It is situated on the Gulf of Mexico between Tampa & Sarasota.
