Large, Luxury Waterfront Home away from home
Submitted: July 14, 2010
Stayed: May 2010
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!
