This home is a truly magnificent three-level, six-bedroom home offering spacious accommodation in one of the nicest locations on the Island, around its northernmost tip which is blessed with unspoiled white sandy beaches, an abundance of marine life and is so peaceful and tranquil that it would have you believe that you are alone on your own private island.

Mary Poppins....practically perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

A five star rating has been rewarded to this property because the space lent itself to allow my family, total 7, and extended family, total 6, the space to be together as well as alone. The many bedrooms with on-suites, gave all of us the space to be completely comfortable as if we were staying in a resort! The house is equipped with all the comforts that make a home. The pristine hardwood floors and sturdy construction helps to sound proof the rooms, while the quaint decor is comfortable and homey. It's not over the top, making all of us extremely cozy, from the youngest,16 to the oldest,50+. The location is residential, but close enough to walk to many of the quaint shops, services and restaurants. We took full advantage of the beaches, many decks with fabulous views, pool and hot tub as well as the game room. The nicest part of sharing this home for the week was watching all of our family members play games, chat and low key the TV! The island was breathtaking with white sand beaches a couple of blocks away! The locals are very friendly and safe atmosphere was felt by all. The plus to this home, I have rented others, was the property manager! He was the best to work with a true plus to the property. Make your next memory at the "Big Yellow House"!

Fabulous, Fun Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

This year we may have started a new family tradition - a Beach Thanksgiving!! We started with an inspiration to spend time together and lived it out in this wonderful home on Anna Maria Island. The house was fantastic. We had three generations in the house and everyone had plenty of space to be together or find their own space for a personal 'time out'. The fact that 4 of the 5 bedrooms have an en suite bathroom makes this home perfect for multiple families.

If you ask the kids (ages 6-15), their favorite part of the house was the pool and hot tub, followed by the game room. The adults would also agree. In fact, the pictures do not do the pool and hot tub justice. The landscaping makes it your own private oasis. We loved it! The game room was perfect for our kids who mastered ping pong and pool in short order.

The beach is a short walk away but we would recommend renting a golf cart to tool around and to haul chairs to the beach. We all took turns We even took it out to dinner at the Sandbar restaurant (beautiful sunsets) where we dropped it off at the valet! The kids thought that was cool.

The property manager Dennis was very nice and responsive if we had questions. The house was very clean and well stocked with everything you need in the kitchen or the beach.

We took two excursions while we were on Anna Maria that are worth mentioning. 1. Mixon's Fruit Farm - -Not only do you get to see citrus growing they also have an animal sanctuary where you can even pet an alligator! The kids loved learning about the various animals found in Florida. They also have a huge gift shop and snack bar/restaurant that we enjoyed for lunch It's about 45 minutes from the house but worth the trip! 2. Kayaking with Shane of Happy Paddler - The entire crew enjoyed a beautiful time kayaking and learning about the local sea life from Shane who is a Master Naturalist. We say conch, sea urchin, sting ray, horseshoe crab, and a baby puffer fish! The kids of all ages truly enjoyed our outing and knew we were in great hands with Shane out on the water.

We certainly had a great time on Anna Maria Island and loved calling this house our home base!

Needs some changes made

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived to the home on Saturday we arrived to a full black, green and blue trashcan and approx. 6 to 7 bags of trash on the ground. The vacationer across from the home came over and commented what a shame it was to pay a big price for a home and arrive to smelly trash, he also stated the previous renters missed the Thursday pickup and put all the trash out there on Friday ( trash pickup in Mondays and Thursday's) so this was trash from all week that we had to come in to. Text off and on all week about the trash to Dennis but nothing was done the trash truck came as scheduled. so the next renters came to one full trash can which was better than we had it. My suggestion would be for a 6 br that the trash only runs 1 x per week ( recyclables runs one day and garbage one day) to have 2 green cans instead of 1 ( green is for garbage). Then once we all got settled in on sat from our long day of travel we realized we had 3 wash rags to bath with for 14 people and a 5 bathrooms. I texted Dennis and was told he would arrange for delivery of more. On Sunday we went to the beach and around 5 that afternoon text him to say none had been relieved and was told it would be Monday when the office was open. So I guess if you run into trouble on the weekend you are on your own. We used hand towels for 2 days as wash rags. Next, as one of the other guess mentioned Wi-Fi very spotty have to be in certain areas of home and it is a little ways to the beach and there is NO view what so ever of the beach from this home, uncomfortable mattress in some of the rooms and TV only in 2 bedrooms. A lot of money to pay to have to deal with smelly trash and no rags. A lot of nice Homes in Anna Maria to have to deal with this and other company's that have some one you can call on the weekends. Would advise you to check around before booking here.

Owner's Response: I was requested to bring more wash rags and we have made sure we have an ample supply here on hand so this won't happen again. The garbage situation was unusual and hasn't happened before or again. For some reason the collectors were by passing us for several pickups. I was on the phone with customer service several times everyday and the situation was finally resolved.

Exceptional Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent an awesome week in this beautiful home. It accommodated three families and our "grown" children beautifully! No need to bring anything with you! Chairs, floats and umbrellas were provided! The kitchen was a dream! Very well stocked! The only negative was the "spotty" Wi Fi:( Our family would highly recommend this vacation rental home:) Looking forward to coming back in the future!

Great house for our big family

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house. There was plenty of room to have your own space. The pool was also great. The kids had a great time. The only negative for us was getting to the beach. It was difficult with two babies to get all of our things to the beach.
