We enjoyed our stay in Key Royale. Our kids loved the pool and the tranquility of the backyard . We also loved the close proximity to the beach and being able to ride bikes every day. Gil the owner was very nice and made sure that we were comfortable during our stay.
My husband I stayed for two weeks. Nice location. House had plenty of room and was well equipped. Patio and pool area is very nice.
Great owner! Lovely home!!
Our family was warmly welcomed by the home owner upon our arrival. The open space of indoor and outdoor living was perfect for us. Some minor housekeeping issues that the home owner graciously apologized for and refunded us the cleaning fee was much appreciated. We would come back again!!
Marnie you were great guests, welcome anytime. Housekeeping issue has been addressed and resolved. A new handheld shower device was installed.
Location Location Location!
We stayed at the home in February, 2019 for 10 days. We really enjoyed the pool and the spacious home. It is ideally located in a very quiet and intimate location. The owner was quite responsive and accommodating. Thanks Gil!
Filthy Run Down Dump
I wish there was a way to rate negative stars. When we arrived, this place was so disgustingly run down, we left IMMEDIATELY. We have filed a complain against the owner through VRBO,and will take additional steps to get a refund as the owner has denied to refund our money.
The Health Dept will also be notified. Upon our arrival the exterior of the property was sloppy and the landscaping was overgrown and trashy. As we stood at the front door, the first thing we saw was a threadbare, dirty floor mat. We had an uneasy feeling about even going in. Entering was a mistake. The interior doors had paint peeling off of them, the walls were marred and dirty, and the base boards throughout the house were black with dirt and what looked like mold. The refrigerator was too disgusting to put food into it. It looked like it had Black mold on the entire length of the rubber door frame and the interior had multiple spills and goo between the shelves.,All of the kitchen surfaces were greasy to the touch, and the cabinet handles were rusted, greasy and disgusting. Sorry I keep using that word, but it fits so well ! Let me go on. The towels in the bathroom were dirty, stained, and threadbare. There were clothes hanging in the closets. There were bare mattresses on the floor that were stained. There was even garbage under the bed! The outdoor grill was rusted, dirty, and 1/2 filled with ashes from years of neglect. This place should not be allowed to be rented.
Although I could refute line by line this negative review, I will address this in a positive way and for the benefit of all the fine and decent families that seek a vacation home to spend quality time on their vacation in this wonderful island.
Although cleaning crews can always do a better job, I the owner, supervise the house prior to all check-ins. I personally will not allow the conditions described by this guest. In fact, they were offered a personalized crew to conduct detail cleaning in depth but they refused opting to check out early.
My prospective guests can rest assured of receiving an accommodation akin to a vacation home with the standards of value and comfort of a beach home away
from home. If you prefer a 5 star hotel accommodation I am afraid they are not available in Anna Maria Island. I suggest you go elsewhere.
As for the cancellation and early check-out policies , they are clearly spelled out on the ad site and on the lease I require you to sign.
Last but not least, I realize we all have different standards. I suggest your read all my reviews during 17 years of renting my house on VRBO.
Very nice home and in a great location. Owner was very good to deal with which makes it pleasant. Will hopefully stay here again.
Anna Maria Island is a well kept secret among Floridians. It remains unspoiled and reminiscent of the true old Florida island beach town. Unpretentious, yet magical to the eye, it is unique among the many barrier islands in Florida. Breeding ground to many protected species, nesting ground of loggerhead turtles. See manatees and dolphins frolicking in their natural habitat, sea birds catching a meal, ospreys diving in torpedo like torpedo acrobatic to catch their pray. Fantastic turquoise blue beaches, no high rise buildings, no chain retaurants, just old fashion family oriented fun.
Other Activities: kayaking, boating, racquetball, basketball,
Golf: Private golf course within walking distance of house and many public courses within 20 to 30 minutes.
