Great location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here last April and are going back in 2017. Even though it is small, it is perfect for a couple. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Just steps from the beach and a short walk to town. Anna Marie Island is a lovely vacation spot.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed for a week at this lovely little apartment and we couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. The apartment was quaint and very cool given that the regular temperatures were in the upper 90's every day. The apartment itself is very close to the beach and we regularly enjoyed the sunsets after a short walk to the soft sands. The ease of access to the beach, restaurants, and shopping made our trip most enjoyable. My girlfriend and I plan to make our trip to this beautiful area a recurring one and I would not hesitate to book this apartment again in the future.

Carissa Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Each time autumn and winter come back in my rainy and rather cold country I like to remember my vacation at Carissa Beach House. I spent my vacation there for about 8 years at different periods of the year, between May and October. I have wonderful memories of my various stays at Carissa Beach House.

The island is wonderful and peaceful. The beach is very close to the house, the sand is white and surrounded by lots of birds. The apartment is cosy, well equiped, quiet and extremely clean. The owner, Snoopy Gates, is a very friendly person and has an extremely good knowledge of the surroundings. She is a wealth of information concerning the various places to visit.

I can only recommend Carissa Beach House for a relaxing unforgettable vacation.

holidays in heaven !

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at your apartment, if heaven exist it is at Carissa Str. !

We spent a wonderfull time at your place, so confortable and idealy situated. We did not realize before that you lived so close to the sea, it was really relaxing going for walks along the beach.

Anna Maria is a quiet little place but not far from cities.

We hope to come back and find ourselves again in your garden.

Lovely introduction to wintering in Florida

  • 4 of 5

What a cute little rental! Cozy and very clean. Close to shops for browsing and buying, close to the library, post office, laundromat (for a rainy day), and even a few restaurants.

The website for this rental is accurate and represents Carissa Beach House well. Follow the paver walkway at the side of the house to your own private entrance. The patio served us as an extra room, expanding our living space -- lovely! And with the long, wide beach only about a block away, an easy walk, I loved the location.

The knowledgeable owner lives on the premises. She has a true love of Anna Maria Island and is willing to share her favorite spots. She also is a great source for finding things to do -- art fairs, golf courses, restaurants, etc. off the island.

For many years our stays at Carissa Beach House have served as a nice introduction to wintering in Florida.

Sadie

  • 5 of 5

The Carissa Beach House apartment was as sweet and charming as we had hoped. Superbly clean and well equipped,totally private as well as located within walking distance to the most gorgeous beach! The trolley stops are easy to walk to. We didn't use our car once the whole week we were there! Snoopy is a gracious host and has a wealth of information about all the activities available on Anna Maria Island. We followed her advice and went over to Cortez for fresh fish, and also took the lovely Bay Walk at the South end of the island. We checked out her favorite beach spots and eating places. We rented a laser from beach Bums on Pine Ave for some sailing on the bay. It was a fantastic week. An amazing bargain for Spring Break!

Owner's Response: Bill and Sadie were the perfect tenants. It's great to have guests who take advantage of all of what the island has to offer and become as enthusiastic about the beauty of Anna Maria as I am. Thank you.
