"Welcome to Paradise!"

  • 5 of 5

The beach house is filled with character and charm! Exceptionally clean and well maintained. The photos accurately reflected the appearance and captured the home's unique VIBE...casual chic!

Easy, convenient access to beach, as well as to the trolley stops.

Owner very attentive to questions and concerns. Would definitely recommend this property to a relative or friend!

Beautiful beach!

Vacation at the Beach House, Anna Maria Island, Fla

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House was absolutely wonderful, exactly what I was expecting and even more. Well equipped, clean, move in condition. With only a few steps from the beach, enjoyed evening sunsets regularly. Spent a lot of time on the picturesque balcony relaxing and enjoying the ocean breeze. Close enough to stores and downtown, walking is a benefit to most destinations on the island. Enjoyed this property and location so much have already booked it for next year. Owners were wonderful to work with, very courteous and respectful of privacy and most friendly. Would highly recommend this property for vacation on Anna Maria Island. Love AMI, been coming here for several years.vacation

Love the location and attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the yellow house and loved every minute. The moment you step in the house, there is no doubt you are on a beach vacation. Our favorite part of the house is the proximity to the beach. We loved strolling down to the beach (which is literally five house down the street) and watching the sunset. The house is surrounded by fantastic gardens. I loved seeing the Florida gardens with unique blooms. The backyard of the yellow house gives you options to grill out and have a lovely meal or lounge in the pool. My husband loved the grill and granite table outside to grill out. We never had time to watch t.v. as we were busy having fun at the beach and enjoying the island. I highly recommend renting a golf cart during your time on the island. This house is in a perfect location to zip around the island and then come back and relax after a long fun day. Suzann's attention to detail is impressive. There is even a diffuser for the hair dryer in the bathroom!You can't go wrong by renting the yellow house.

A glorious get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

My 2 adult daughters and 1 girl friend celebrated my "birthday" at the Yellow House. We were amazed with all the specialties thru out the house, paintings of a mermaid in the bathroom to a Jimmy Buffet theme carved in to the floor, WOW!! The kitchen was well stocked with all you'd need plus immaculate Which I always appreciate. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the lanai And our evening wine there too. Then a short walk to celebrate at the Beach Bistro-a must. The pool was perfect and the garden well Manicured. A minute walk to a beautiful beach With blue water, and clean sugar sand. A glorious get-a-way. I would 100% recommend this property which we all enjoyed.

Perfect house...Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week from 12/24 to 1/1 at Suzann's home and it was absolutely amazing! The house is in an ideal location (5 houses from the beach) for anything that you want to do in AMI. Working with Suzann was easy...she was always in touch about my reservation. The house set-up is a little odd but once you get used to it, you'll love it! The TV room is on the ground floor while the rest of the living space is on the 2nd floor. A suggestion might be to create a TV room in the main area of the 2nd floor. But, like I said, once you get used to walking down the steps to view TV, you're fine! Plus, with the beautiful weather we had, there wasn't much TV watching!

The house is equipped for everything. The kitchen is spectacular and has everything you could possibly need. The house is decorated very nicely with many little items that will keep you looking around. The porch off the 2nd floor is wonderful! I spent most of my time between the porch and the pool area.

I would highly recommend this house for your next trip to AMI.
