Why Debbie Gardner chose Anna Maria Island

In 1993 we came across the bridge to Anna Maria Island for the first time and knew it was the place for us.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We went for a family vacation last June and stayed a week in this lovely home. Our trip was great and it was nice to go hang out in the back yard by the pool at the end of the day. Location was great so easy to get to everything in the area. The local people were very nice and gave great suggestions of things to do and places to eat at while visiting. Would definitely love to come back again!

Excellent Stay in this clean home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here last year for Spring Break with my wife and kids. It was everything we could have asked for. The home was clean, close to the beach and the pool was well heated. An updated grill would be nice, to grill out by the pool. We liked it soo much that we scheduled a return trip for Spring Break 2015.

I took two teenage girls who had just graduated from high school on a vacation prior to their starting college along with my nine year old daughter. The location was excellent for whatever was needed. We could walk to the beach, out to eat or sight seeing. We rented bicycles for the island and the two teenagers even rented a kayak and went around the island. The house was well equipped for us to cook whatever we needed with a wonderful screened in porch (and a grill). The pool was excellent to relax at when you did not want to go to the beach and wanted to keep the nine year old occupied :) The house was clean, neat and stocked with everything we needed. We have actually went two years to the same home because we enjoyed it so much the first time with its location and how nice the owners were to work with, and we plan on going back again. (Why mess with a good thing when we know it works for us!!!) Could not beat the location, atmosphere or the folks to rent from. Many thanks for the enjoyable memories and hope to make more.

Great home, great pool, great location, awesome island

  • 5 of 5

My Husband , myself and our 3 sons stayed here for 5 nights in May 2012. The home was just as pictured. The owner was very easy to deal with! The pool was great, they provided toys for the pool and beach. The beach was close and the trolley was located at the end of the block( which was about 3 houses). The island is only 7 miles long, so everything was easily accessible. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this home to anyone going to the island!

My husband and I took our daughter and friend for a 10 day vacation to Anna Maria for her high school graduation. The house couldn't have been better. Everything was in perfect working order and SUPER CLEAN! (unlike other rentals I've had) The kitchen was well equipped, beds were comfortable, and small pool area lovely. The neighborhood was nice and there was no issue of safety on the entire island...the girls could be on their own without worries. The trolley stop was 3 houses away which was very convenient. We rented bikes and rode around all week - rode to numerous beach accesses, all of which led to a beautiful section of the beach - can't go wrong. Coming back to the rental after a long day felt like you were home.

Winter haven

  • 5 of 5

My husband, his sister & I sought refuge from a long, cold Quebec winter on Anna Maria Island. We loved everything - the Island, the house and the weather! The house is very comfortable, attractively furnished and well equipped. We really enjoyed the pool, particularly in the afternoons when it was a bit hot to go to the beach. We also appreciated the quiet, laid-back feeling of the neighbourhood. We did quite a bit of sightseeing and it was a nice house to come back to. Definitely a great place to relax and unwind. We'll be back!
