Excellent condo!!! Clean!!!
Excellent condo!! Can't go wrong staying here. Clean,
and appealing. Great location!
EXCELLENT LOCATION, EXCELLENT CONDO, EXCELLENT HOST!!
First experience with VRBO and I think this one will be hard to top. The unit was exactly as described. Really didn't even need a rental car. Directly on the beach and everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Host we're extremely helpful. We'll be back but it looks like this one books up fast so don't wait to schedule!!
This was like being at home with an amazing view and wonderful location!
This property was amazingly clean, well organized and they had everything you possibly need to enjoy your time on a beautiful island. Everything was great for us from providing all of the beach items to the pool and of course the beautiful condo. I cannot wait until we come back for longer than a couple days but I would recommend this to anyone. The location couldn’t be any better and they provided everything we needed. I had an email issue and Yvette was immediately responsive and was even asking to make sure everything was okay with us. Overall this was a great experience and I would recommend to anyone. Well with the price given the cleanliness, amenities and the location. Thank you.
This was by far the best condo rental we have ever gotten. The place is great. Something for everyone and the owners are fabulous! We can't wait to go back.

Wonderful condo with a beautiful view. Well maintained and stocked with everything we needed.
Our experience was wonderful. 102 is a fabulous place to spend a week or more. Accommodations are top rate and the location is wonderful. A great time was had by all and we will definitely be back.
Lovely, Lovely, Lovely
This condo was outstanding in so many ways. First the location was perfect. It was right on the beach, just walk out the back of the building, by the heated swimming pool, and you are on the beach! You can view the gulf while lolling in the sun next to the pool if you don’t feel like getting sandy that day.
Also, it was walking distance from many restaurants, two ice cream parlors (Joe’s Sweets and Eats was our favorite, try the Nutty Fudgy Sundae), and Bridge Street (a cute shopping/historic district).
Our unit was so well supplied. We had 11 beach towels, plenty of extra bath towels, every kitchen utensil and appliance you can possibly use (including a Keurig coffee maker with many individual coffees already waiting for us), and a storage space in the garage just for our unit that had beach chairs, flotation noodles, boogie boards, and tons of beach toys.
The guest bedroom had twin beds that were easily converted into a king-size bed with a special mattress pad (in fact, when the owners found we preferred the king-size bed, they had it already converted before we arrived). There was also a blow-up twin size bed in the guest closet for our use. The other bedroom had a queen size bed with a view of the gulf from the bed! All the beds were super comfortable.
If you are a runner or like long walks that are not on sand, there is a lovely tree-shaded trail going south from the building from which you can view the gulf while walking. This path runs along Coquina Beach and Cortez Beach. Coquina beach has life guards.
The beach right outside the building is lovely and not crowded. Just the right amount of people to make it pleasant.
Each evening you can view the beautiful sunset from the screened-in balcony. Such a treat. We ate most of our evening meals on the balcony enjoying the warmth of the sun.
Can’t say enough about how much we loved our stay. We hope to go there again!!
USA Today says 'Enjoy the 'Old Florida' feel of Anna Maria Island.' Southern Living says '...swaying palms, beautiful beaches, and not a high-rise condo in sight.' Swimming, shelling, fishing, hiking on nature trails, bird-watching, parasailing, unique and interesting shopping, many restaurants and more are available right on the 7-mile long Island. Disney World in Orlando, Bush Gardens in Tampa, State Parks and other attractions are close by-each an enjoyable day trip by car. Tampa International Airport and Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport are both within an hour's drive. Enjoy the perfect getaway one time and you will be back.
