  • 3 of 5

We stayed here Dec 25th-30, 2016. I hope this review is posted because of the 9 reviews, they are all over 2 years, (2014, 2013, 2011, 2010 etc). Upon arrival Nancy, the owner's , sister appeared and talked with us for about 1 1/2 mins. and made sure we found the key, and she quickly said something about living in a "tall" house. On the last day we were there we fiqured she ran the seafood shack, next door. The rental house is 3 stories, which you can clearly see in the pics. FYI, if you or anyone in your party is unable to climb stairs, this is not the place. There are 15 stairs to the second level, which has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a washer and dryer in a closet in the hall. Then you walk up another 15 steps to the 3rd floor, where the kitchen and living room, and another full bath is. It was 80 degrees each day and the 3rd floor got hot, so there was a old nasty with black mold window air conditioner that upon turning on sounds like a freight train. We tried running the AC unit while we were gone. FYI, there were no hand soap, towels, no paper towels, no dish liquid, no dish washer liquid, laundry detergent etc. We did find all the towels above the washer and dryer, they were old but adequate. Plenty of beach towels. This is not a rental that you "oh, and ah" , my and husband's face dropped as we walked through the place. We decided we will make due. The internet, and cable did not work, and there was no contact info for the owner or the sister. In our group of 5, we all tried our luck at getting connected to the internet and the cable. Everything is old, a bit dingy, the sheets on each bed had miss matched sheets that were all worn. So, if stairs do not bother you, and the unit is subpar, and you bring all your own supplies for kitchen and bathrooms, (we went to CVS on Christmas Day to buy everything, when we arrived), and it is about a block and half, from the beach, view of water is minimal from the 3rd story. I contacted the owner, Nancy, several times before and after our trip and she responded very promptly. She allowed us an early check in, at noon, and we left check out at 3:30 am. Could not contact her while we were there, we had no internet. After we got home and had internet service I told her of the 3rd floor AC unit, and the dryer old and took about 2 hrs to dry an average load. She mentioned she had not been there in some time, and would see about replacing these items. Great location!

Perfect location and the best Price !

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay there for two full 2 weeks over the Holidays in Dec. Our family had 4 adults and 2 children (8 &15).

Location, location , location ! The closeness to the best beach on the island was the ultimate ! We can walk there anytime and the kids can come and go on there own. Its like having a beach front property but w/ half the cost. We can see the gulf ocean from the living room porch.

There are lots of amenities near the house , like restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops, rentals, ice cream shop, etc. all w/in walking distance. It has a nice pedestrian neighborhood feel to the place. It was never noisy or over crowed. It is also close to the City Dock area where one can also fish. This northern end of the island is really the best in comparison to the rest. We are really glad we got to stay at this part of town.

We also joined and took advantage of the nearby City Community Center while we were there. It offers workout facilities, tennis courts and athletic fields. It a great place to meet other tennis players.

The house is not luxurious , but very clean and comfortable and had all the necessities.

The Owner was very nice to work with and responded promptly when we called or had questions. You just cant go wrong w/ this place at this price.

We would definitely go there again !

We loved the White Caps. Perfect for our daughter's wedding on the island. We hope to return every summer for a reunion. The beach house had everything we needed. You can almost walk or use trolley to get or go wherever. The Waterfront restaurant is amazing, excellent appetizers and entrees.

I was a little hesitant with the rental being reasonably priced but was pleasantly surprised. The home was in a great location and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The area is very laid back and in walking distance to shopping and places to eat. We enjoyed a very short walk to the beach and there was a great place to eat on the beach at the end of the street. We would love to rent the house again!

Great Girls-Only Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

As a returning visitor to Whitecaps, I was happy to be able to share the beauty of the island with 5 of my friends on a girls-only vacation retreat. What better place to relax and renew than on Anna Maria! An early morning walk on the beach to pick up shells brought in by the tide overnight and then back to the beach house for breakfast on the 2nd story deck with a view of the ocean was amazing. I recommend the Rod and Reel restaurant on the island for yummy, casual dining surrounded by the beautiful blue of the ocean. While we were there we saw 2 manatees swim under the pier! Overall, another great time was had at our favorite Anna Maria beach house and I can't wait to go back! Thanks for sharing such a warm, inviting home with us!

Our stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Where do I begin? We stayed at the beach house right before the "official start of summer"! We were looking for a place where we could relax and unwind, but somewhere where we could feel comfortable and at home at the same time. We were not disappointed. Plenty of room to relax and move around....3 bedrooms, including the master bedroom suite. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed, including some cooking essentials such as spices, oils, etc. The house was very clean and everything in working order. It was wonderful to sit on the swing and look at the ocean after a long day of sightseeing! For this get a way, we did not include our children, but we will be back, with kids in tow! The home was very accomodating to children with plenty of beach fare and open spaces to play. I would highly recommend this to anyone that has future plans to visit the area.
