We just returned from our amazing vacation to Anna Maria...What an amazing place! The Gables is a gorgeous property with plenty of room for our party of 8 which included 4 seniors, 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We loved the location and the fact that the trolley stop was right outside the door, it only took about 5-7 mins for us to walk to the beach. Valerie had to unexpectedly leave due to an emergency and made arrangements for her friend Lynn to make sure we had everything we needed while we were there. Lynn checked in with us a couple of times over the course of the week to see how we were and Valerie also touched base after we came home to make sure we had found everything to our liking. Valerie dealt with many emails from me during the year with various questions and always had a speedy response for me. This home is amazing! The kids loved the pool, and we loved the various outdoor spaces to hang out in! Especially the upstairs porch! We started planning our return trip as soon as we left the driveway on our departure day! Thanks once again to you Valerie and to Lynn for your attention to detail and your hospitality! Hope to actually meet you in person one day Valerie! ~ The Raby/Gordon Clan-Ontario, Canada.
