Charming home.

We love AMI. The Toasty Coconut was exactly as stated in the description. Very clean and comfortable. Proximity to all that the island has to offer is great.

Amazing house and owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were down in Anna Maria for our honeymoon the week of thanksgiving and it was the best time of our lives. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed, from beach towels, 4 wheel carts to take to the beach, to very nice beach chairs and umbrellas. It also had everything you would need for an infant/toddler as well. It was only a 2-3 minute walk to the beach and to numerous restaurants. The owner Ammey was a joy to work with. I would highly recommend this property and my family will be booking it again when we go next year

Charming and so family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great time at the house for 4 nights. I'll give a bullet point list of what we loved below. But first let me say that Ammey was fantastic. We emailed her a few days before sharing our concern that the pool be well heated, as a cold front was bringing low temperatures. She quickly responded by adjusting the heat even a few degrees warmer for us- and it was perfect for the entirety of our stay. A huge plus for our 3 kids who hate cold water!

What we loved:

* The house is so charming. It looks small from the front but it is very spacious! It's very clean with modern, updated furnishings. Well stocked with everything needed to cook meals, which we did most nights. Very comfortable beds!

* Having a heated pool all to ourselves! And plenty of furniture out by the pool, including a table with 6 chairs. We ate most of our meals outside. And lots of pool toys for the kids.

* Such a short walk to the beach. Maybe 3-4 minutes to the water. The beach area nearest the house is really uncrowded and quiet- at least in late October/early November.

* All the beach equipment you could need. We made good use of the cart and chairs.

* The little kids room with the day bed and the play area. Our almost 2 year old loved reading the books in there. Having a rocking chair to rock her to sleep at night!

What to know:

* The pool is all one depth. I am thinking it's about 5 feet. Our older two kids are good swimmers for their age, so that wasn't a problem. But just good to know it's not a a pool with both a shallow and a deeper end.

* The house does have an interesting layout, I'm sure because it has sections that were added later. There is a bit of a maze on the first floor between the master bathroom, laundry room, and smaller kids room with the daybed. Still, the space is used really well. There is a really nice, large closet area with drawers, clothes racks, and shelves that we could store all of our stuff in. The laundry is right next to that kids bedroom, so make sure the buzzer is off on the washer and dryer if you do laundry while your kids are sleeping next door!

We ate at Harry's and Grill for burgers one night. Nice seating outside. Food is classic pub fare. We also had a pizza from J Burns. We really liked it! Don't usually love thin crust, but this was very good. Cheaper meal for the whole family, too!

Hope we can stay again in the future!

Great stay, once again

  • 5 of 5

This was our family’s second stay at the Toasty Coconut.

Ammey is simply wonderful. She really was so easy to communicate with and helpful in everything.

This is a great home, so close to the beach, but also to Gulf Drive and Pine Street shopping. It’s very clean and well decorated. The pool is now salt filtered and really easy on the skin!

Our family had a great stay and hope to return to the Coconut soon!

Great vacation home at a great island!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for two weeks in the Crazy Coconut and we loved everything there. The house is very well maintained and you will find everything you need there. The pool is very nice for a swim in the morning. To the beach it is a 3 minute walk. We will definitely return to the Crazy Cococnut as it is one of the nicest houses we ever had on Anna Mari Island!
