Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Barbara, dear Terry,



I just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had at your villa on Anna Maria Island. It is a beautiful house with a beautiful view, the photos on the webpage do not do it justice. It was very nice to meet Terry while we were there and we were very grateful to him for offering us a late check out which was very much needed and appreciated as we did not want to leave!! Having come from Orlando where we had a nice but rather shabby villa, it was lovely to stay somewhere that was obviously cared for and well looked after.



We would love to return at some point in the future and would definitely choose this villa again. Who knows, we may be in touch again soon......



Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2015.

Superb home and location

  • 5 of 5
Our party of seven had a fantastic holiday at this luxury AMI home.The house and location are superb.Having stayed in the greater Bradenton area for a number of years we have grown to love the area and particularly Anna Maria Island.
For this year we thought long and hard about staying on the island, but we were all glad we took the plunge,it was fantastic.The home is gorgeous and sooo big,lots of room for everyone and the location is spectacular.During our stay we had almost daily sightings of dolphins swimming right past the boat dock.Also lots of rays leaping out of the water and splashing back in the bay.
One of our favourite places on AMI is the city pier.We usually have a few runs up the island,only five minutes in the car.Always something happening on the pier to keep us entertained,be it watching the wildlife or the fishermen.
All our party had such a wonderful time this year that we had no hesitation when booking our 2015 holiday in re-booking to stay at this lovely home.Next June cant come quickly enough.

Everything you could wish for

  • 5 of 5
For once, the property was even better than the photos suggested. As the renters (and the payers) we had first pick of the bedrooms and assumed we had the best one. Actually it turned out to be third best! The twin-bedded room, poolside, was a little darker and less luxurious than the others but our occupants were more than happy with the trade off in terms of unlimited access to the jacuzzi. the kitchen was well equipped and had more than enough cutlery and crockery for the ten of us.
The garage contained a variety of beach toys including fishing tackle which kept various members of the party happily employed sitting out on the deck trying to net fish.
The property is a pleasant stroll from the beach and has easy access to grocery stores etc.
Apart from one day when we splashed out and hired a boat to explore the inlets and waterways around the island, we found the the house, patio, pool and deck provided plenty of amusement augmented by long evening walks on the beach watching the fabulous sunsets.
We cooked for ourselves, various couples competing for best cook award so ultimately we felt that the expense of the villa was offset by providing everything we needed for a brilliant holiday.
We also found the management company very helpful and quick to respond to a couple of issues we brought to their attention.

The listing photos of this rental are not quite accurate/ or they are very dated photos. The house was a bit of a disappointment. Overall the house desperately needs repairs, replacements and updates. In the kitchen one of the pendant light fixtures is broken, only one side of the toaster works, knives are dull and useless. The living room sectional is broken (the recliners on each end). The TVremote is broken, the door to the outside doesn't stay shut (won't latch properly from the outside--VERY ANNOYING) The keys to the house don't work easily. The downstairs master suite tub spa is broken. Upstairs bedroom (black and white) has a floor lamp with a huge hole broken out of it (not safe for little children) and the toilet is very slow running. The outdoor furniture upstairs is rusty and unattractive Housekeeping service is below par. We had to go looking for washcloths and towels. Each bathroom was not stocked with these items. There was sand on and in the cushions of the kitchen stools. But the biggest rip off was the charge to use the gas grill ($65) for the week. It is a cheap, sorry excuse for a grill--very small, the cooking element was bent as was the grate. Cooking of food was very uneven. It's a beautiful house from the outside, nice location and nice pool. The owners need to give the house alot of must needed attention.

Owner's Response: We were saddened to receive this review and sorry that our lovely villa didn't meet with your expectations, it is a beautiful villa in a stunning location.
We telephone our guests a day or so after their arrival to check that they a happy, we called on this occasion and the problem with towels and dishcloths was dealt with straight away, neither ourselves nor our management company were contacted again regarding anything else, had we been contacted we would have corrected as much as possible straight away.
We have since sorted out the problems with the gas grill ( which is hired locally ), the electric light in kitchen & the construction company who built the villa has dealt with the lock on the rear door.
With regard to the recliner chair at each end of the sectional (which are apparently not functioning properly,due to misuse by guests), we had these checked out and although not dangerous in any way we intend to fully replace the lounge furniture (but not with recliners this time) at the end of August when we fly to Florida.
It is very important to us that our guests are happy, rest assured that these matters are being addressed fully.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Everything is as advertised! This is a wonderfully spacious place and a great setting for a relaxing break. Was so nice to have three masters en suite! The view from the upper balcony is spectacular; especially sunrises! We gathered here for our getaway and loved it so much that we rarely left the pool area! And the beach is a mere 4 blocks away. Was great to be able to have our boat & water toys right there to enjoy with the private dock. Fell in love with AMI and this lovely villa. Have already recommended to others looking for family gathering spot! Thanks Barbara!

Good Time

  • 5 of 5
Very nice property, clean, very spacious, bright and airy.
Have been to Florida many time and was worried about mosquitos, especially as the pool is not enclosed and next to a canal, but we encountered no problems.
We saw many different birds and also the dolphins. The management company was helpful and sorted any problems out quickly.
Would definitely recommend staying here.

Large, Luxury Waterfront Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This home as well as all the other Hartwell Villa's is beautifully designed, decorated, light/airy and well appointed. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would want/need at home and the dining room seats as many as it sleeps, 10 to 12 people comfortably.

The living room is large with a beautiful leather sectional and other seating, large TV with cable/dvd as do all the other master suites have TV.

The master suites are very large, have comfortable, firm king sized beds with plenty of lovely furniture and closets. The master baths are extremely large, FIVE fixture with jacquizzi tubs, lg showers & bidets. I have only once in my lifetime been in a hotel with a bathroom that large. Tile is done beautifully, vanities are large and each MB is a lg room in itself.

I can't stress enough how lovely the Hartwell Villa's are, especially this particular one that we stayed in for 9 days in May. The weather was perfect for the beautiful pool w/jacquizzi and the short walk or ride to the beach.

I have been visiting Anna Maria Island for the majority of my life, have family and friends residing there but have never stayed in as nice of a home as this.

The owners make everything very easy when it comes to booking, are a delight to deal with and I've met them a couple of times on the island. They are as lovely in person as on the phone or via email.

I highly recommend this home and Hartwell Villa's. I am so looking forward to our next stay there and thank the owners for their hospitality.

The photos give a great idea of the waterfront home but you have to see it to really appreciate it. Once there, I never want to leave. We hope to eventually relocate to Anna Maria Island. When I do, I will miss this type of home. Their architect designed it beautifully! The island itself is wonderful, one of Florida's best kept secrets without high rises but with plenty to do on the island or immediately off it on the mainland.

Being surrounded by Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico is breathtaking as is the home.

There are wonderful restaurants on the island, most are casual dress and a rare cpl are elegant. Food is superb in the majority of them, A good example is the SandBar, sitting on the deck right on the Gulf having a hamburger or a yummy seafood meal. Last visit, I had scallops wrapped in crab!

We will be back again soon!

Best regards,

Michelle and family

Anna Maria Island is a small gem on the Florida gulf coast, truly 'Old Florida' visitors return year after year to the island to enjoy the white sands and laid back atmosphire, this barrier island has so much to offer, for more modern activities such as cinema, 10 pin bowling shopping malls etc, these can be found back on the mainland or further down the coast in Sarasota..Anna Maria Island, Florida, Florida Central Gulf Coast, Sarasota
