Our family arrived at this home and were most pleasantly surprised at how airy and comfortable it was. You needn't bring anything with you except clothing and your toothbrush. All other items are provided for you. Lauren was most pleasant to work with and her attention to details and her renters is evident. Her home was clean and neat. The pool was a nice place to relax following a day at the beach. Our children appreciated their own personal space...not having to share a bathroom was a plus for them! I would most definitely rent this beautiful home again in the future
My friends and I could not have been more delighted with Lauren's home. The house is super close to the ocean. Often times we would get to the beach early, and then walk back to the house for lunch by the pool. The pool was amazing. Lauren did a great job with the landscape. No one can really see the pool area from the road, making the yard extremely private. You do not even realize you are on the main road. The house is close to restaurants as well. However, we found ourselves grilling out a few nights a week. The kitchen was well equipped and plenty of space to cook. I look forward to renting this house again!
This home is fantastic. It's very clean and furniture is actually comfortable. We did not realize until the last day that the 2 chairs are actually recliners! The kitchen is the best equipped of any house we have rented. There were left over spices available, which was nice to not have to purchase more when not needed. There is a gas grill we used multiple times. The dish soap, dish washer soap, extra trash liners are all a plus and appreciated. Lauren also provides bath soap, shampoo and conditioner in these awesome dispensers on the shower wall: given we didn't check in luggage this was a great bonus to us. The towels and bed sheets are like a high end hotel as were the bed pillows. For the week we were there the pool was a lifesaver and our kids used it every day. Thanks to the pool light they were also able to use it a couple of evenings as well. Also, while technically a duplex, we never knew it. The entrances are completely separate and noise between the two was not an issue at all. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in walking distance as is the beach. Getting a hold of Lauren was very easy and she was very quick to respond which is nice. I would recommend this house to any family looking for a laid back and relaxing vacation.
Great house. We felt at home. Great location. Loved holnes beach , and all the good local restaurants. Definitely coming back! Thank u lauren!!
All the amenities you need in this 3 bedroom 3 bath cottage all on 1 floor with a nice built in pool enclosed by a private white gate with Palm trees surrounding the area for total privacy and 150ft away from the beach which is very quiet and private.
We stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute of our vacation. For some reason, I’d thought this cottage was the second house on the street, but it is directly on the corner of 54th and Gulf. I think if you know this going in – you’ll be better mentally prepared. Along with some of the obvious day-time street noise you’d expect, please realize, you are about 100 steps to the beach (I didn’t count, but it what I call potty distance, easily return from the beach as needed…. ;) You do have a convenient liquor store around the corner, and a handful of great restaurants walking distance. You can readily ride a bike (we always rent two for the week on AMI) or grab the trolley and get to the grocery / CVS. The house was immaculately clean, everything was exactly as the pictures portray. The only thing not noted, which I think is important, is that the master is en-suite with the bathroom, and the other two bedrooms are readily converted to en-suite bathrooms with the two pocket doors – which is a nice feature. My advice is, if you have 2 couples or 2 couples and a couple of kids – or one couple and a bunch of kids – rent this house. You can spend your days lazing at the beach (Lauren has great beach chairs available), or at the pool, spend your evenings in the cool of the air conditioning or out by the pool listening to the waterfalls and enjoying friends. There is a ton of kid beach / pool toys / floaties / noodles etc… The kitchen is well stocked – there are many left overs (spices and such) that help with the odds and ends. There are plenty of pots and pans and dishes for everyone. I really appreciated the washer and dryer. It was nice not to need to come home with a completely full suitcase of dirty laundry. If you stay here – pack less. Really – it is so easy to toss in a load while you lounge at the pool! It was also nice that Lauren kept the house so well stocked with the necessities. I hate when you rent a house and there is one load of dishwasher detergent and you are expected to buy additional dishwasher soap for the other one or two loads that you might need in a week… Having a few left over napkins, dishwasher tablets, laundry soap, paper towels etc was a huge bonus. It’s the little things that make your vacation just that much nicer and easier. Next time we come, we will check Lauren’s rentals first. We love anna maria and we love Lauren’s place. We’ve been home one day, and I’m wondering how long it will take for us to return.
Walk 150 yards and your toes are in the Gulf of Mexico...
This cottage is so centrally located that it is within 200 yards of the Gulf of Mexico, restaurants, shopping, art galleries and a gym, yet the cottage itself is a private tropical oasis nested inside Florida's finest flora.
