This was my third stay on Anna Maria Island and my favorite vacation rental so far! I may never try a different one unless it's on Bean Point AND affordable! This unit was decorated so beautiful and designed flawlessly. We had visitors a couple of times and they all took pictures of the furniture and decorations to try to decorate their home similarly. I walked in and I instantly relaxed! There was a welcome basket full of supplies. I never had to go purchase a thing! There were even a few water bottles in the fridge, cold and ready to take to the beach, which is RIGHT across the street. Seriously. No walking down a block for a public entrance just right there! The view of the ocean from the deck was better than j expected. Plentiful pool and beach supplies, but we left quite a few more. Cold AC, clean, super comfortable beds and couches, I just could go on and on! This is everything you could ask for on vacation. We didn't once say, "if only it had" or "I wish ..." , like you usually say when you rent, because there is no perfect rental and you seem to usually compromise on something. I guess if there was one thing that would make it better, it would be having it be a single home not a duplex. But I never hear the neighbors and I hope they didn't hear us! Even sharing the pool worked out fine. I wouldn't hesitate staying here again, and I certainly felt that this home MADE the vacation for me, because it made me relax and unwind.<br/>Oh, and the location was perfect. So close to either Manatee Rd and Cortez. Two bldgs from the gas station, a few blocks from my favorite restaurant Mr. Bones, as well as shopping. I LOVED this rental!!!!
