Why The Owner chose Anna Maria Island

We live in western New York and have always imagined owning a home by the sea. After traveling throughout the Caribbean, we knew we wanted something tropical. We found Anna Maria. It was everything we were looking for and so easy to get to. We enjoy the laid back vibe, the friendly people and the beautiful seaside community that we now call our second home.

What makes this house unique

We get up early each morning and take a stroll on the beach, collecting shells and enjoying the quiet. We love to eat lunch at the Rod and Reel Pier; enjoying the locals and watching the 'catch of the day'. Our location allows us to walk almost everywhere. We can get lunch, shop, go to the beach, all within a matter of minutes. Our home is so close to everything yet still feels private.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Pam

I was visiting the Grandkids this weekend and had your original letter out to write to you. I would like to thank you for allowing us to be the first renters we loved the house. Location was perfect and the set up was great. Sofa super comfortable, and loved the directions for the TV and DVD. Very helpful, we should have it all written down at home for our own TV, nobody can ever remember the way to do it. The new appliances were great and made a nice kitchen. Also loved the MP3 player we were able to hook the I Pad to it and get music. Nice.....

I do have a few observations that may help enhance the property, not complaints at all. Possibly a couple more beach chairs, anyone traveling far or by plane will not have them. We actually had our own and the 2 extra were great. A newer gas grill, we used the Weber. Maybe 2 lounge chairs for the pool area? A large pot for pasta, some salad tongs and a large salad bowl might be nice. Also a new coffee pot might be a good idea.

We had family and a couple of friends stop by and everyone loved the house and Anna Maria Island. We will definitely return!



Owner response:

Hi Donna,

Just wanted you to know that we got everything on your list of suggestions!

Sorry we didn't have all of the items while you were on Anna Maria, but thanks to you I think we are pretty well stocked. Tell Tom we bought a really nice coffee maker with him in mind. Hopefully everyone will enjoy it. Thanks again and we hope you will consider us again in the future.

We couldn't have been happier with the home. Perfect location for a short walk to the beach. Just the right pace for a family vacation. Everything was fabulous.

At last

  • 5 of 5

First time to Anna Maria...loved it. The property was situated perfectly in that you did not have to get into your car once! A short walk to the beach and pier. The next street over you could find shops with very unusual trinkets. There is a Publix when you first get onto the island where we did our big food shopping. The home itself was very comfortable, clean, decorated nicely and roomy. Would absolutely stay here again!

Welcome relaxing week after two weeks of Disney parks

  • 5 of 5

Lovely relaxing and well furnished property in a great location. As a family with three children we found the property ideal. The pool was used daily, the well appointed lounge area was well thought out and spacious and we found the villa very clean and well maintained. Within walking distance was a number of restaurants, ice cream parlours that all had character and were of good value. We had some lazy days on the beach where the trolley was very handy to transport the chairs and bucket and spade for our youngest. We saw dolphins and a variety of birdlife and enjoyed a great dolphin watch boat ride from the nearby marina. Overall we would highly recommend the island and this villa and we had a great time.

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks and it was nowhere near long enough! At Last is a wonderful place to stay - we felt immediately at home. The homely touches and open living area are really comfortable and allowed the family to stay together but allowed us all ample space & privacy. My son (20) and daughter (17) loved the fast wireless and ample choice of cable TV stations.

The location is perfect. Turn left out of the house and you have a 400 yard walk to one side of the island with a beautiful pier, where you can watch the sun go down & the dolphins with the fishermen. Turn right out of the house and you have a 3 minute walk to beautiful sandy beaches. There are several outstanding restaurants within walking distance with beautiful sea views. The area feels quiet, peaceful and a perfect place to relax and unwind. We walked to the beach most evenings and would never get bored with watching the sunset.

Having the carts to take the beach stuff was a great help and would thoroughly recommend hiring bikes(Pam does supply 2 children's bikes) as it was a real treat to just leave the car and do most things by bike.

The pool area is fabulous. It feels very secluded and most afternoons were spent cooling in the beautiful pool. In the evening, we regularly barbequed on the net covered back verandah overlooking the pool.

We dealt briefly with Candy & Ed during our stay who were fantastic and could not have been more helpful. When we locked ourselves out on the pool deck the response was brilliant. Pam was a delight to deal with and has a house to be so proud of.

It was very hard to leave, but I guess the best recommendation is that we loved it so much, we booked for next year before we left!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Pam was a delight to work with. The house is located right behind Pine Street, so is great for people without a car. Some of the best shops and restaurants are within an easy walking distance. The home was very comfortable with lots of room. The large couch in the living room was perfect after a long day at the beach. There were lots of pool/beach toys and movies for the kids already at the house, a portable speaker system was a nice bonus as well. We had an opportunity to deal with the property manager and she was very pleasant. Overall, it was a very enjoyable vacation and we can't wait to visit the island again.

Our Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This house is perfect, close to the beach, easy to walk to and 2 beach carts made it effortless. The house is clean, comfortable, and has an awesome screened porch with a seating area dining area and bbq grill. We stayed for an entire week ( 2 adults and 4 girls) and the kids were never bored thanks to the location we were able to go to many places easily. Having a pool is a big plus for relaxing after a long day at the beach. I would recommend this house to everyone, they have thought of nearly everything to stock it for maximum convenience. The owner Pam is wonderful as well as Candy and Ed were pleasant and informative.
