Well guarded secret among locals, they feature the most beautiful beaches in the west-coast of Florida.

Just right for us!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Anna Maria Island. We will definitely go back. In addition to the beautiful, beautiful beach, we got to be on the island during their St. Patrick's Day parade (an unexpected treat!). We travel a lot and love trying new restaurants. There are several including Beach Bistro, The Sandbar, Lobstah's and Eat Here that we really loved. The house itself is just minutes from the most beautiful part of the beach. I walked there a couple of mornings, but most days we drove so we could take the beach chairs, bags, etc. The house is nestled amongst all different types/sizes of homes. This home was the right size for me, my husband, and our two college-age kids. The glass pocket doors in the kitchen and living room were generally always open out to the pool where we always took advantage of the outdoor audio system. We were out there a lot! We took the tandem kayak out on the water a few times. And took the bikes out for a ride a couple of times. The renovations are great (we loved the master shower with the multiple jets). Overall, we had a nice stay -- it was perfect for us.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to take my elderely parents to Florida to visit my brother and his wife. I needed a quiet, relaxing, safe place and found it on Emerald Lane. The owner was very friendly and wanted to make sure everything was just perfect. This beautiful home is located in a quiet neighborhood but only minutes away from everything that Anna Marie Island had to offer. There are 3 walls that literally open up completely to bring the pool area right inside, it's amazing! Lots of room to move around! We are so thankful to the owners for sharing their home with us. We would definately consider returning in the future if we are able to.

Felt Right At Home.. Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here in May and loved every minute of it. It is tucked away in a quiet upscale neighborhood. Upon arrival, we opened up the sliding glass doors to see the relaxin pool and the water in the backyard. We used the bikes and kayaks as well as enjoyed what Anna Maria Island had to offer. If you are looking for some good food for lunch, try Tortilla Bay. It is Mexican and quite tasty. One spot that we hit for breakfast was Minnie's Beach Cafe. The place had great food and the staff was quite entertaining! The property has an outdoor sound system to enjoy some music while you take a swim, lay in the hammock, cook some food on the charcoal grill, or are relaxing in the chairs with a nice drink. This place has it all. It was one of our most favorite vacations yet and we plan on going back in the future. I must say dealing with the owner was a pleasure as well. A very smooth transaction. I would say that the photos do not do this place justice. See for yourself and head down to Anna Maria Island.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our first long vacation away from the Canadian winter and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. Anna Maria Island it's self is a lovely location with the longest beach imaginable consisting of pure white sand the texture of icing sugar and lovely sea grass and rolling dunes. Gil's place is located just minutes from great restaurants and shopping. The house is spacious and warm, situated on a canal we had our own personal showing of pelican's diving for their dinner and dolphins swimming right up to our dock. The house had everything needed to make us feel right at home and Gill and his lovely wife were only too eager to make sure our stay was a memorable one.

Owner's Response: Ownership of Adriel's allows us to meet great people! We enjoy our house thoroughly and wish to share it with those who appreciate what it has to offer. Peace and quiet in a little paradise called Anna Maria Island. May God keep the oil away from its shores!

Adriel's Place is a dream come true for a small family vacation. Cozy and luxurious yet unpretentious. Well equipped for the whole family entertainment. The back yard is a tropical paradise dotted with exotic palms, a waterway often host of frolicking dolphins and peaceful manatees. My kids enjoyed the house more than anyone else. Bikes, hammocks, kayak, pool....

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in Nov. '08 and enjoyed all the amenities. The house was very clean and we enjoyed the lovely peaceful view from the back of the house overlooking the pool and canal. The house felt very spacious, especially with the sliding glass pocket doors opening up to the patio area. The second bedroom is a little sparse for adults, but fine for children. The master bedroom is very nice with a very comfortable bed. We would definitely rent this property again. Gil, the owner was accommodating and easy to work with on arrival and departure times.
