Super house in great location

  • 4 of 5

I spent a month at this house and plan to return. The house is very well appointed. The living spaces are very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipment and fun to cook in. You can't beat this location. Minutes to the beaches and excellent restaurants. I highly recommend this house.

What A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent an entire month here and would have stayed longer if it wasn't booked already. First let me start with how spacious the home is. The master bedroom is extremely comfortable (it has a sleep number bed!) and was separate from the other bedrooms which made it feel very private. When we had company, we didn't hear our guests at all. The kitchen here was a total dream. We actually found ourselves cooking almost every night instead of enjoying the restaurants that were around because of how nice the kitchen was. We could work in there together and have plenty of space. The dock was great, we fished off of it all the time and were able to catch lots of fish... some of them we were able to keep and eat. We also put a crab pot in the water that brought us lots of yummy treats. The kayaks very fun to use and we loved taking them out in the evening when the water was calm and the sun was going down. We traveled to many different beaches in the area. Some of them were only a 3-5 minute drive which was really easy. There is so much to do in the area that we didn't get to see it all, even with the whole month we had there. All in all, we absolutely loved our time here and would not have left if we were given the choice. Kandi was great to deal with and had answers for all of our questions in no time at all. We cannot wait to come back!!

Great Time! Highly Recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. The house was comfortable and we really enjoyed the hot tub, pool, and fishing off the dock. One week is too short to enjoy everything in the area. Hope to return again soon. It was easy to communicate with Kandi and the booking process was easy. Highly recommend!!!

Just OK

  • 2 of 5

This house was decent but outdated. We ended up driving to the islands everyday, so it is far from the beaches. The owner double booked the place so the vacation started with dealing with another family who showed up. Also, we left the place very nice but was still charged a cleaning fee.

Owner's Response: Our apologies for our canal house not neeting your personal expectations. After speaking to you, I had the impression that your family loved it.The Anna Maria Beach is 1.5 miles away, just as our description states. As with all vacation rentals, a professional housekeeper is schedule for each lease termination, that is the only way to assure the condition for the next guest. We wish you the best of luck finding something that meets your expectations for future vacations.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home! Kandi was wonderful to work with. We loved kayaking,the hot tub and swimming. My 11 and 16 year olds loved the pool. The home inside is very spacious and the kitchen is amazing. I would definitely stay here again with my family. Thank you Kandi for sharing your beautiful home with us!
