Pool heaters in private homes are locked for your safety and controls must not be tampered with as they are monitored by the pool company. 85° is the highest heat temperature setting. Pool temperatures will probably stay around 76° during the winter months. Please note if cold days occur, water temperatures will drop and may stay cooler longer. Pool heaters will not operate and will automatically shut down if outside temperatures get too cold. While we take every precaution to ensure that pools are heated as specified, weather conditions may affect the temperature of the pool. Outdoor spas are not hot tubs. The temperature of a spa is typically set at the same temperature as the pool. In the event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, Duncan Real Estate will expedite repairs as quickly as possible. It may be necessary to close swimming pools for maintenance purposes. No refund or rent adjustment will be made for circumstances beyond our control.

Perfect stay in the Florida sunshine

  • 5 of 5

Anna Maria is our favorite vacation destination and our family had a wonderful stay at this house. We spent most of our time around the good sized heated pool and spent minimal time inside even though it was a great space that comfortably fitted the 6 of us. The outside pool furniture and dining area were great and we made good use of the beach chairs when we headed to the beach, particularly for sunset watching. We loved that we could walk to our two family favorite restaurants – The Rod and Reel and The Waterfront. It’s easy to rent bikes and kayaks nearby in Pine Avenue as well as using the Island Trolley to get around. This house provided us with everything we needed and we’ll be back next year!

Wonderful Family Christmas Break Trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I along with our 2 college aged children & their significant others spent 2 weeks over Christmas break at 233 Gladiolus & had a wonderful holiday. The house is a great size for 3 couples, especially with the master bedroom located on opposite side of the home. We especially appreciated the 3 double sliding doors along the sunroom & the bar in the sunroom. We spent a great deal of time kayaking through the intercoastal & took advantage of the lazy sunny afternoons poolside. The location of the home makes it an ideal spot for bike riding to either the bayside or to the ocean.

Our only complaints were we could never get the tv over the bar to turn on & the ladder off the dock was about ready to pull out of the dock, which made it difficult to get in & out of our kayaks. And, we found it a bit annoying that the rental agent called us toward the end of our trip not to check on us but to inform us that he had not charged us enough in taxes & needed $17 more. But, those were just minor items. We hope to vacation again at this charming home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your 5 star review, Bonnie. We are delighted that you had a wonderful Christmas break at our house and that you are keen to return! It is great to hear that you particularly enjoyed spending time in the Florida Room and we will certainly ensure that any problem with the TV over the bar area is fixed immediately. Kayaking is such fun and we will, of course, check that the ladder to our dock is more firmly secured as we were unaware that it had come loose. We will contact our agent on the island to ensure that they prioritize checking on guests' enjoyment in future. You were a pleasure to have as guests and we would love to have you back at Gladiolus on the Water!

Great January Getaway In Unbeatable Location

  • 5 of 5

The most wonderful setting, with sliding patio doors across the back of the house (these appear to be a great addition since the photos were taken) bringing the garden right into the house. We used the heated pool daily, even on cooler January days, and spent many tranquil hours in the garden with its beautiful shrubs, palms and visiting birds. Loved that the house is on one level, making it ideal for my husband who has knee problems. A truly memorable holiday and the perfect escape from the miserable winter weather back at home!

Fantastic Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We hadn’t visited Anna Maria before but the island exceeded our expectations. This was an awesome house to stay at. It was spacious, nicely decorated, clean and in close proximity to everything we needed, just a short walk or cycle ride to the beach and some shops/restaurants. Having our own pool was great and we also spent time on the beautiful beach each day and were grateful that there were beach umbrellas and chairs to use. We cooked quite a few meals in the kitchen and found everything we needed and also used the grill in the back yard and enjoyed visiting the amazing restaurants on the island. We rented a car since we had to drive from the airport and it did come in handy at times, but there is a free trolley that regularly comes by at the end of the street.

Overall we had a wonderful, relaxing time and we all have so many great memories. Five stars from us, we will definitely be back here to stay for longer next time.

Love the house and the location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at this beautiful house which is very clean and spacious, perfect for 6 guests. We just love its location, with the flexibility of heading off to the nearby beach or relaxing by the beautiful pool enjoying the stunning canal view. Many an hour has been spent fishing off the dock and watching the local wildlife. The layout of the house suits us perfectly, with its open plan living area and kitchen which has been newly installed and nicely equipped since our first visit. We wouldn't stay anywhere else and can't wait to return again next year.

We come to Florida to spend as much time outdoors as possible n this home was very conducive for that. We loved the pool, flowers, birds, canal n being a quick bike ride away to the beautiful gulf beach. A great blue heron visited us every morning!

The house itself is very open, but there were aspects that needed attention. However, the plus sides overcame them.....
