Sit Back and Relax
Waking up in the master suite with a view overlooking the ocean was the perfect way to begin our day. No black out shades, so be ready to wake up to plenty of sunshine. We loved it! The house was clean and comfortable. Plenty of beach chairs, towels, toys for small children (we didn't have any small children) and having the washer/dryer (coin operated) was a plus. We vacationed with a total of 6 adults and the home offered plenty of room for all of us. House sits just far enough from the ocean for privacy, but close enough to enjoy the surf. This end of the Island is devoid of too many beach goers and was perfect for a quiet family getaway! Just a short walk to Pine Ave. for some shopping and to pick up Key Lime Donuts (YUMMY!) every morning, but get there early!
Highly Recommended Beach House
We just left a perfect week at this beautiful beach home. First let me start by saying Michael gave excellent customer service which made this an easy choice for rental property. The home is a duplex but the other side is kept vacant for privacy. There was no one around us, we definitely had quite the privacy and the beach is just enough of a walk to keep the front patio peaceful and private. We are nature lovers and had our fill seeing shark, manatee, skates, dolphins, horseshoe crabs, geckos, sand dollars, sea stars and tons of shells to name a few. Advice for seashell hunting, go early around sunrise for the best pick, otherwise there will just be smaller shells left. The property had absolutely gorgeous views and was very clean. It is not a huge place, but cozy for a single family. Highly recommend and give 5 stars. PS my artist daughter loved the fun art in the house, especially your daughters tree drawing in the bedroom :)
This beach house is beyond perfect: amenities, size, location and comfort. Our family of four (2 adults/1 teen/1 pre-teen) had an absolutely wonderful time here. It has enough space without being too big or too small. The two screened in porches were excellent for early morning coffee and reading with beautiful beach views. So grateful for finding this house on Home Away!
A little piece of heaven
First and foremost, we were very pleased with our stay. We were sad to say good bye to AMI. That being said, we weren't aware the washer/dryer were coin operated (though it does say coin operated IF you hover over the word "washing machine"). It wouldn't have been a huge deal except we weren't prepared and the fact that the dryer took more than 1 cycle. In all, 1 load of laundry cost $6.00. Had we been prepared, we would have simply packed more clothes. Another drawback, the path from the house to the beach was flooded. The only way to walk to the ocean was through about 6" of flood water. Despite all of this, we had a fabulous time. The house is great, the beaches are not over crowded. We made memories that will last us a lifetime! One of the days, the water was so clear, we had fish swim up to us. We found many sand dollars, huge shells and coral. We saw some amazing dolphin play. If you want a true beach experience, this could be the place...it was for us.
Our dream came true!
This was our first experience with VRBO, and it couldn't have been better. The owner was responsive and helpful. The house was perfect for our family of 5, including 2 teenagers. The shower stall and separate changing area in the garage are genius, keeping sand out there rather than in the house! The beach towels, toys, chairs and umbrella were essentials for us, especially as we traveled by air. The beach was beautiful and we enjoyed seeing dolphins and rays from shore! We also came across a baby octopus that had been washed ashore and were able to observe natural pleasures like this from up close! (we did return the critter to the water). The house was in a desirable location on the north end of the island - close to restaurants and shopping - but not near the busy public beaches! We hope to return in the future. Great experience!!
Beautiful Beach House!
We love this beach house. This is the second time we have stayed here and it was even better than the first. They have made a few updates/improvements including the steps to the beach. It is conveniently located; secluded, yet still close to restaurants and shops. The owners provide excellent customer service, making us feel very welcome. It was perfect for our family!
We are located on Anna Maria Island, Florida. The beach house is directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Perfect waterfront property.
