NICE HOME! GREAT PEOPLE TO RENT FROM

  • 5 of 5
Dwight and Shauna were excellent hosts and the house was clean and well stocked. Really just need your clothes and toothbrush :)
Dogs had a blast and the kids enjoyed the pool. We all had a great time and the beach was beautiful. Love the outside shower. Dwight even showed us where the boat ramp was and helped my husband put the waverunner in.

All in all a good time at Island Time.

FAMILY OF 4 (BOY/GIRL 16-YEAR-OLD TWINS WITH 50-SOMETHING PARENTS) HAD A GREAT STAY!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family visited Anna Maria Island and Island Time in April. We had a wonderful time! We particularly enjoyed the lovely pool, heated jacuzzi, and back yard "oasis" (the lighting in the evening was just lovely), grill and eating area. The pictures on VRBO are definitely accurate and this was one of the things that really attracted us to this property.

Dwight and Shawna were very accommodating and even brought us something "extra" I needed for the kitchen (not many people go on VK and want to bake a cake from scratch that involves beating egg whites... they were so accommodating and brought us a mixer to accomplish the task!).

The dock was great for fishing and we used the fishing gear and caught a few fish using live shrimp (which Dwight recommended). We also really enjoyed the bikes, which were comfortable and there were helmets, too.

There were plenty of beach towels, a great laundry room and everything we needed for the beach, including a cart, beach chairs and a cooler.

The house was ideal for us with plenty of room to spread out when we needed to (we have 16-year old twins that don't always get along!!!!).

The location was ideal. It was a short trip (walking or biking) to downtown Anna Maria (loved Anna Maria Donuts!!) and an easy car-ride or bike ride to Holmes Beach. There was so much to do and see. We really enjoyed Bean Point (saw manatees and dolphins) and the gulf beaches.

We ventured by car to Cortez, where we enjoyed a sight-seeing boat ride with Captain Kathe and First Mate Pup, and ate at Star Fish restaurant (NOT TOO MISS!!!). We also enjoyed a few pleasant afternoons on Long Boat Key (loved Harry's Grille...the restaurant looked wonderful, but we went to the deli and had the best fish sandwiches ever!!), swimming and looking for peacocks, which we did find!!

We would definitely come back to AMI and would stay at Island Time again. This is a beautiful, comfortable and well-equipped home well-suited for families and couples, as well. The next time, we may drive from PA and bring our dogs. We love that Dwight and Shawna welcome pooches:)) All the dogs that come and visit Island Time must be very well-behaved...there were no signs of previous pet visitors!

Thank you very much, Shawna and Dwight, for a wonderful time!!

MAGNIFICENT VACATION!!!

  • 5 of 5
The most comfortable accommodations we could have asked for from our lovely hosts Shawna and Dwight. Every single moment was a delight from opening the front door to the pool area and in between. We wanted for nothing in our stay at Island Time! As beautiful as Anna Maria Island is we never wanted to leave the confines of the home. Even more perfect than the photos and a wonderful getaway. Life is a dream at Island Time.

RELAXING PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this vacation home was very relaxing. The owners were very helpful and friendly right from the beginning. If we needed anything they were more than happy to help. The pictures on vrbo are accurate, very comfy place to stay that is located in a quiet neighborhood away from the crowds. The backyard retreat was our favorite spot! Very private and relaxing. Pool was great to come back to when we got tired of the beach(which was within walking distance). The house was nicely equipped and clean. Definately would recommend to friends!

ENJOYED OUR STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Island Time. Shawna and Dwight are very accommodating and delightful. We found the description and pictures of the property to be very accurate. The property was clean and had every convenience we needed. There were six of us (my husband and I and our four children ages 15, 12, 10 and 8). We loved the space and available tv's throughout the house. There is a great assortment of games and movies for those rainy days. Loved that we had access to the beach caddy with umbrellas, chairs, mats and beach towels. We used their poles to fish off the doc as well. The back pool area/back yard is so comfortable and inviting. The homeowners were available to answer any questions we had! I would definitely recommend this property to family/friends. We rented bikes for the week and road many places. The island accommodates bikes by having slower traffic and bike lanes. Anna Maria Donut's big hit with kids.....go before 9:15 or you'll be waiting!

WOW! ISLAND TIME & ITS' OWNERS ARE FABULOUS!

WOW! Island Time & its' owners are fabulous!
  • 5 of 5
We are fastidious travelers and over the years have crafted a "vacation must take list". In our initial conversation with the owners, one of them assured us that Island Time was fully equipped. We've rented enough to know that everyone's opinion of fully equipped is different. We were pleasantly surprised to find everything we needed and much more.

This home is tastefully and cheerfully decorated with a beach theme and the property is well kept. Although it was just two of us, there are many private areas to get away if you are vacationing with others. There is a small "beach" area in the backyard that includes a hammock, chairs, and children's beach toys. There is also a nice picnic table. The yard is fenced and children can easily play on the "beach" while the others are enjoying the area. The pool is heated and the pool area is very festive and inviting.

The owners are superb managers and were helpful with anything we asked.

Some of our favorite restaurants nearby are Beach Bistro (not suitable for young children), Mr. Bones (great vegetarian dishes), Eat Here, and Mar Vista on Longboat Key (dog friendly). The village where Mar Vista is located has wild peacocks. For fresh seafood, Island Fresh Market is wonderful and the owner is very helpful!

There is a very nice dog park located near the baseball field and behind the city works department. Everyone we encountered (we went every day) was nice. They cleaned after their dogs and all the dogs were friendly. There is a separate area for small dogs but they are also welcome in the large dog park.

We would highly recommend this property and we hope to return again soon!
