Guestbook comments from the owner

the house is magnificent! It is decorated tastefully and offers many comforts. The kitchen lends itself to delicious cooking. The master bedroom is superb? The floor is magnificent. Overall, the house is exquisite! We have enjoyed morning walks on the beach, bike rides around the neighborhood and fun in the sand. Although it has been a bit rainy we had great fun at the 4th of July parade and watching fireworks at night. We come every year and plan on returning to enjoy everything that the island has to offer and make more unforgettable family memories.

Perfect for our family.

We really enjoyed the house. Wonderful floor plan and so beautifully decorated. We loved the location to the beach. So quiet and peaceful. We are planning two weeks next year!

Owner's Response: Jane, The floor plan was designed to give everyone as much privacy as possible but still allow for that great family get together feeling. Having the Master Suite on the opposite side of the home from the guest rooms seems to be a hit with everyone and then having the den in yet another section of the home allows for that “working vacation” that we all seem to be doing these days! Unfortunately! When you do get a chance to get away having the beach a few steps away does make it easier to pry yourself away from the working world and enjoy the real meaning of Vacation. It is a peaceful home and location and we are so glad you are coming back to see us for 2 weeks next year! Take care and stay warm until we see you again.

Awesome!

We always rent VRBO's versus hotels/B&Bs when we travel. This is one of the best houses we have rented over the years. The house is perfectly laid out with the living space between the two bedrooms and the master bedroom with den (that leads to the pool). The kitchen is wonderful. The furniture and style throughout the house is so comfortable and clean, even the garage is super clean. The pool and pool area is so perfect. We didn't use the pool much since the weather was a bit cool, but it is heated. The location can't be beat, walking distance to the white sandy, quiet beach and to bars and restaurants, and Pine Street with such a cute shops. Plus, the market is walking disntace, but Publix, a few miles away was great, too. And, the food at The Pier is so great. As an FYI - many of the restaurants/bars, except The Sand Bar offer only beer and wine. We will return. Love, love, love this place and its location. One thing that was a tad disappointing is the bbq grill would not heat up, even though the propane tank was filled.

Owner's Response: Sue and Family, Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment on our home. We do appreciate it when experienced travelers like you find our home to be one of the best they have stayed at. It means a lot to us! Our compliments to our cleaners and to our management company also for keeping the home sparkling clean. Sorry the weather didn’t cooperate enough to use the pool but having the beach so close is always a plus for a nice walk. Thanks for letting us know about the grill. We did find there was a leak in the hose which has been replaced. In the future please let us know if you are having any problems and we will of course take care of them immediately for you!! There are a few more places around with full liquor licenses as well. The Waterfront restaurant, Ocean Star, Bridge Street Bistro and The Bridge Tender just to name a few!

Beautiful, relaxed house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 weeks here this winter and enjoyed the house, location and area very much. The house is very nicely decorated and it is very clean, which we also appreciated. It is only a few houses away from beach access and the beach in this area is pristine and not crowded, great for a morning or evening beach walk. The house has nice sheets and towels, beach towels, some beach chairs, really everything you will need. We had dinners at lots of good close by restaurants. We recommend the Sand Bar for a fun sunset dinner or drink. You can easily walk there from the house.

Our Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Anna Maria Island for several years and this week at the Bungalow Basket ranks as one of the overall best. Our group consisted of my parents (in their 70's), my wife and I (40's) and our daughter (20's). The location is perfect as you don' t have to drive to the beach, or suffer a long walk as it is a simple stroll to one of the best parts of the beach. The house has been remodeled with great touch. The street is very quiet, especially at night. I would recommend this house to anyone and plan on booking it again in the near future. Thank you for the great hospitality!

Owner's Response: Alan and Family, We are so glad you enjoyed Bungalow Basket and with your wide range of ages we can safely say the home appeals to all age groups! The short stroll to the beach is our favorite part about the home also although strolling by beach to some of the restaurants on the island is nice also. Appreciate your kind comments on the remodeling and we do try to keep in looking brand new for our guests. We are so glad you will be coming back to see us soon. We look forward to it.

Beautiful, cozy and so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place for an end-of-summer getaway. Bungalow Basket was even better than we expected, the house has been tastefully decorated and extensively cared for, the atmosphere is a wonderful balance of casual elegance, and I'm trying to figure out ways to make my real home look a bit more like it!

Our family enjoyed a fabulous week in Anna Maria Island. The property managers were extremely helpful when needed and it was reassuring to know they were just a phone call away. I particularly loved the huge kitchen counter / bar as it provided a great spot for socializing and cooking. The house is just a couple of minutes away from the beach so it was easy to spend time having fun in the sun, go back home at the end of the day, and back to the beach for the most beautiful sunsets ever. Special details made for a cozy stay, from lovely laundry & magazine baskets, to whimsical lamps and interesting artwork. I would have loved to have a DVD player for kids movies. Ana Maria Island is beautiful, fun and laid-back and we'd definitely come back and repeat a stay at Bungalow Basket.

Owner's Response: Natalia and Family, Thank you so much for the lovely review about Bungalow Basket. We would be more than happy to furnish you with any of the vendors we used for furnishings or anything else about the décor that you are interested in. Just let us know! Sounds like you had a great time and we do aim to please so it looks like we both won! Glad Gulf Island Vacation Rentals took good care of you and we welcome you back at any time!

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week in Bungalow Basket. Everything looks as it is showed in the pictures or even better, clean, nice and well maintained. The managers were very kind when we asked for more dinner forks, and they came with two new sets of silverware, which were really needed to be in synch with the appliances in the kitchen. There were plenty of beach chairs and toys, only missing a couple of beach umbrellas, so it was good that we brought ours. All the reviews in the site are pretty accurate and we’d love to come back soon.

Owner's Response: Maria and Family, Thank you so much for pointing out the lack of silverware to us and glad we could get it to you the same day. God only knows where it disappears to but it seems to vanish?? We are so glad you will return to visit with us and glad that Ellie and her team were able to take care of you while you were there. See you soon!

Anna Maria Island is located on the Central West Coast of Florida nestled between the tropical blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the West and Tampa Bay to the North. Once a best –kept secret among local Floridians, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'…

The island consists of 3 cities, Bradenton Beach being the southernmost, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria City on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique and charming shops and restaurants.

Anna Maria Island has miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions. Located close to all the major attractions, yet far from the maddening crowds make the Gulf Island Beaches the ideal vacation spot.

Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset all in a day…

You need never leave the island to find fun and relaxation. Our island is only 7 miles long and no more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of waves and visions of the sunset in every location. Enjoy a day at the beach and watch the kids play in the sand. Walk along pristine beaches and dine in award-winning restaurants, Enjoy fresh grouper sandwiches on a pier and sipping martinis while enjoying live music. Go shopping in our specialty shops and boutiques all along the island. We even have a Free Trolley to take you where you want to go. The friendly environment and endless activities will keep you coming back for more. Hop aboard and experience island paradise!

From Bungalow Basket you may walk to Dining and still be just steps to the beach or just relax in your own private heated pool!
