Guestbook comments from the owner

The beach is perfect, the pool is lovely, and the condo is just right, Comfortable, homey, and in a great location for everything. We took the free trolley around the island every night to eat. It's fab. Some of our favorite eating places were Mr. Bones, Hurricane Hanks, and Rod and Reel, It has been very hot with a nice breeze off the gulf. We found all 'beach things' we needed in the locker near the pool. We sat on the beach in the beach chairs and watched the world go round- PERFECT!

We are well rested, and don't want to go home, but we'll definitely be back!

Thank You

Outstanding unit in a prime location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful unit for afew days and it was absolutely one of the best places we have ever stayed. The unit had been recently updated and was very tastefully decorated with a beachy theme to it and very clean and comfy ! I could've stayed there forever ! I would highly recommend this unit and would go back there again. It was steps away to the beach, great pool and in a nice quiet area. Doesn't get much better !!

Totally Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Anna Maria Island, but we'll certainly come back! We left Chicago at 8:30 and were enjoying fresh fish and eggplant fries (yum!) at The Beach Cafe next to Gulf Sands by early afternoon! The condo was great - clean, bright, airy and comfortable and the new bathrooms were beautiful! The view of the beach from the balcony was awesome, and although the weather was a bit cool during our stay, we enjoyed warmth and sunshine there each morning, followed by hours each day on the beautiful white sand beach. It was so nice to have access to the beach chairs provided in the unit's storage room downstairs! Although we didn't end up using the pool, it was large and tastefully landscaped all around, so we'll be sure to enjoy it next time we're down!

Our timing was lucky - we had a ball at the Holiday of Treasures Open House evening hosted by the local merchants and even got to ride in one of the decorated boats in the Sarasota Holiday Boat Parade of Lights the next night (fun)! All the shopping was so close and there were so many great places nearby for fresh seafood! The free island shuttle was an awesome way to get around the island, with pick-up and drop-off right next door!

We were in need of a stress-free, relaxing get-away, and got just that! Although we could have stayed so-o much longer, we left happy and refreshed! Thanks so much for everything!

Highly recommend this condo

  • 5 of 5

Loved it. Two words sum it up. The condo was super clean, comfortable, relaxing with everything you need, on hand. The décor was fresh and updated and invited you to sit and relax. Our view of the water and beach from the balcony was a great way to enjoy that first cup of coffee. I would recommend this property for anyone that is visiting Anna Maria or the local area. We are planning to return again next year.

Absolutely Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to this wonderful vacation spot on Anna Maria Island. Each year the owners make terrific changes to the unit. This year we enjoyed a totally renovated master bath. The location is absolutely excellent -- a gorgeous view of the Gulf from the balcony, just steps from the unit to the beach and a spectacular large pool. This year we discovered new biking and kayaking adventures -- all easily accessible from the unit. The owners and rental agent are very responsive.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment your drawn into the condo by the view from the verandah, you feel at home! You find a spotlessly clean, we'll decorated place you can relax, every detail is taken care of right down to the basket full of info on the island itself. Access to the storage locker was great, providing beach needs and saving us room in our vehicle to get some extras from the local shops! Did I mention the master bath, talk about a WOW factor, it rivals those we have seen in high end hotels, we ll really on HGTV. This place is absolutely perfect, the location couldn't be better! So close to the beach, if you leave the windows open at night you will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves on the shore! Just outside is the free shuttle stop, yes I said free! The shuttle runs on a regular schedule with stops all over the island allowing very easy access to shops and restaurants!

The island itself is a little bit of heaven on earth, great shops ,restaurants and locals, not to mention the fabulous beaches!

We did have some questions for the owners and they were answered instantaneously. If you are a couple looking for some time for yourselves or a family looking for fun in the sun, this two bedroom slice of paradise is for you! I highly recommend this condo on this island, you will absolutely love it!

By the way, as a chef, in my travels, I look for great food and we found it! The Sand Bar restaurant met all my standards and more! Wonderful food great staff and over the top location, check it out when your on the island!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute you walk in and take in that view from the verandah, you feel at home. Every thing we needed was already in place, the owners really pay attention to detail! Even access to the storage locker, which allowed us the use of the beach chairs saved us so much room in our vehicle to grab some extras from the local shops! Did I mention the master bath, talk about a wow factor, very upscale rivaling baths we have seen in high end hotels, we'll really on HGTV!

Upon our arrival we found the unit spotless and very we'll organized, complete with a basket of island info that was very helpful. We did have a couple questions for the owners and they were answered immediately! Top of the line customer service, amenities and location... I highly recommend this beautiful rental and gorgeous island for any couple or family looking for a great vacation. I mean come on people, if you leave the windows open at night you can hear the waves on the shore, talk about being on the beach!

The island itself is great, great shops, great food and quality fishing, not to mention the beaches
