Garage is full of floats,noodles, 6chairs, umbrella, shovels etc. 2nd fridge in garage.The closet was full of games. The only thing lacking was kitchen ware. No steak knives, only 2pairing knives. 3pans. S,M,L. 2 fry pans and 1 casserole dish. Quality items though, cuisine art , crate barrel. I needed a better mixer for Thanksgiving and Liz found one and brought it over promptly. Great experience.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Big Sky Beach House. We were on the island for a wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better location. The house was beautiful. When we arrived we met Liz who was there checking the house to be sure it was perfect. IT WAS! It was extremely clean and decorated so wonderfully. Our entire family enjoyed staying there. It was equipped with everything you would need in all areas of the house. We are hoping to return to the island some day and would definitely love to stay in the house again. The beach is only a very short walk from the house. The free trolley is just around the corner. Thanks Liz for everything.

My family and I absolutely loved it! Very short walk to the beach, short drive to the store and the house is equipped with everything you would need. My kids loved the pool and all the games that were in their room. I would definitely recommend this house and would stay here again!

Fun at the beach

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Big Sky; our kids and grandkids loved it, too.

The house is spacious, well-equipped, and we liked all the special touches that made it ready to enjoy from the moment we walked in. The outdoor shower was a treat when returning from the beach!

The pool's safety netting was most appreciated because of the 1-year-old and the 3-year-old grands. We enjoyed a calm morning of kayaking. Thanks for making it available!

We do not know how you did it, but the weather was great. Thanks! Our family looks forward to doing this again next year.

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Having just returned from an 8 day stay at Big Sky House I wanted to say how much we enjoyed the house, in fact it exceeded our expectations! The house has everything needed to make a vacation enjoyable, from the well stocked kitchen to the great supply of beach towels and toys, it felt like home from the minute we walked through the door. We travelled with our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren, ages 5 and 3, there was space for everyone to feel comfortable and having 2 bathrooms accessible from the lanai was great for all. The beach is so close but I must admit that we used the pool more for swimming as it is wonderfully warm at 88 degrees and having a covered area outside allowed us to be outside even on rainy days.
AMI is a very special place and I could go on forever but probably my greatest appreciation would be to Lin, thank you for making the whole process so easy and straightforward, this was our first time renting and you made it a very pleasurable experience, hoping to return next year for at least a month.

Where do I start

  • 5 of 5
This home has it all. We have rented homes all over the country and Big Sky house has
great Karma. I counted as I walked, front door to the beautiful gulf 180/seconds. The home is immaculate, no I mean spotless. The pool area is outstanding and so very comfortable for a family get away and includes a hot and cold outdoor shower! The kitchen is wonderfully stocked, The bedrooms large and very comfortable. 2 car garage, One is full of beach gear and I mean full. The other is wide open for you to pull your car in. West side garage has a 2nd refridgerator which came in extremely helpful. Short 20 minute walk to all our favorite restaurants in Holmes beach center. 40 minute walk to Pine Ave and 2 Scoops Ice cream parlor and the bay pier which we did most evenings. This is the perfect location on the island.
Lin, the property manager knows how to treat her clients with friendly professionalism.
I would tell the owners don't lose her. She is so great to deal with. Good Lord willing we will be back next year. Our family wants to wish both Lin and the property owners very happy holidays and the very best of health and happiness in the coming new year
