Very Pleased

  • 5 of 5

We are regulars to AMI and were very pleased with Twin Palms. Crit and Adele were very hospitable. The cottage was super clean and nice and cozy. I enjoyed being able to use the kayaks and bikes.

Private and beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the house and AMI. It is so pretty and the owners are so nice and a charm to deal with. The private little garden where we ate was so quiet. Crit made sure that we had a great week and was incredible. Beach gear and everything that you would possibly need are provided. It is clean and bigger than we thought. Perfect location near the pier and the fabulous beach. No wonder this house is booked more than a year in advance. We will be back and we already miss Anna Maria Island, the weather and this beautiful place and the owners. Don't hesitate! This is the place!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my husband for our 18th anniversary with a trip to Florida. I chose this cottage because it seemed cozy and quaint. Little did I know that it would greatly exceed my expectations. We loved the decor, location, size, patio, and all the little details that were thought of right down to the colored marbles scattered throughout the crushed shell "gravel" outside. Adele is very friendly & accommodating and made it easy to want to come back. This little gem is just 2 doors down from a general store with a deli and steps away from boutique shopping. We loved the availability of the bikes (which we made extensive use of!) and kayaks (which we'll have to get to next time!). We enjoyed long walks on the beach and spending quality time together while feeling at home. We were impressed with the availability of FREE public transportation around the island, but didn't take advantage. The cottage is smack in the middle of the historic district of Anna Maria Island with the oldest church on the island directly across the street. Overall, we couldn't be more happy with our stay. Twin Palms is the perfect getaway that is close to everything you'll ever need for an island vacation.

P.S. be sure to check out the free museum just a couple blocks away to learn the fascinating history of Anna Maria Island.

Paradise at Twin Palms

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at Twin Palms and wished we had booked for longer. Never booking a private property in the US before we were a little anxious but from first contact with Adele we were put at ease and the pictures of this charming cottage on the VRBO site are a true reflection of what to expect for a completely relaxing holiday. The cottage is well appointed and much more spacious than we thought it would be with plenty of room both indoors and out.

Adele, Crit and Greta are so welcoming and easy going, the cottage is well equipped with many extras such as beach chairs, bikes, kayaks all available for guests to use. The location is a 1 minute walk to the main Anna Maria Pier at North Island and also where the free trolley bus picks up and you can ride to the southern tip of this island approximately 1/2 hour each way and discover Holmes Beach, Manatee beach and other places of interest.

On our return the first evening to one of the many restaurants within walking distance the private patio to the cottage is lit up with coloured fairy lights and a garden water feature bubbling away makes for an ideal place to sit and read, have a drink and just chill.

We are so pleased we stayed here and would highly recommend the cottage, the location and thank you Adele for making the whole booking process easy. We will see you again.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at this beautiful cottage on the North end of Anna Maria Island. It was perfect!!! The location is ideal, about 1/2 block from The City Pier. The cottage is beautifully decorated and everything that you could possibly need. There is an outside patio to relax and grill to use. They also have bikes and kayaks that you can use. I think this is the best location on the island!!!! Very close to the beautiful Bean Point. Walk to the General store, Hometown Desserts, 2 scoops, Vinny & Cheryl's, Poppos, and all of the local shops on Pine. The owners are so warm and welcoming. We can't wait to come back.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time at the cottage and it always meets all our needs. It is so close to the pier and the beach. The patio is an oasis to enjoy evening cocktails! It is so well equipped with everything anyone would need to enjoy a relaxing vacation. We LOVE it and will definitely be back. Adele, Crit and Greta could not be more accommodating - wonderful people.
