Relaxing hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two dogs escaped the snow and cold to stay at Sympatico for 2 weeks. As soon as we saw the cheerful gold gate, we knew we would enjoy the amenities of this delightful rental. The owner has put a lot of love into the decor so we felt like we were staying in a friend's house instead of a rental property. Being on a canal with lots of tropical trees and plants offers full privacy and quiet. We spent most of our time on the upper deck, but the ground level offered a full dining table and several lounge chairs. For once, the photos really do tell the story. The kitchen is fully stocked so cooking is easy. The only caution I would say is that it is a small house so having more than four people would be a tight squeeze. The location is great with the bay three houses away, and the gulf just under an easy mile walk. Anna Maria's commercial district is about a 10 minute walk. Our dogs enjoyed their stay, too, but the yard is not completely fenced in so we had to walk them a lot, but that's fine for vacation. The area is completely residential and full sidewalks and good places to exercise both you and your dogs.

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

There are not really enough words to describe how much my family and I loved our stay at Simpatico! The location on the Island was ideal - a walk or a bike ride from all that we needed, but still away from some of the more crowded areas so we could "retreat" to our own space when we needed to. The pictures were COMPLETELY accurate, from walking into the beautiful outside living space to the house itself. The landscaping is beautiful - lush, exotic, and creating wonderful privacy. The "courtyard" with the kayaks and the swing is charming, and the view from the dock is just perfect. Inside the decorating gets you in the spirit of the island immediately: bright colors, and so many fun touches that even days into the stay I was still finding things I liked. The owners and property managers have really thought of everything - there was not one thing we looked for or needed over the course of the week that was lacking (a special "shout out" to the jacuzzi tub and the well stocked kitchen!). From the initial renting to the arrival and the checkout, our stay (our first, by the way) on Anna Maria was as easy and enjoyable as we had hoped it would be. My family and I will miss it, very much!

Beach, fun and sun are waiting for you!

This family, elderly and dog friendly vacation rental is located on Florida's Anna Maria Island, a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico south of Tampa Bay. Comprised of three cities—Anna Maria on the north end, Holmes Beach in the middle and Bradenton Beach to the south—AMI is one of the only places where the 'old Florida' charm still exists. The Island has every convenience needed, including multiple award winning restaurants, including Beach Bistro, Sandbar Restaurant, Sign of the Mermaid, and Waterfront Restaurant. There is also plenty of shopping available along historic Pine Avenue in Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach's historic Bridge Street. With the beach and the Bay just minutes away from your front door, there is plenty to do in the water. Kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, jet skiing, and parasailing are the more popular activities. With the Island only seven miles long, there is no need to drive when almost everything is within walking or biking distance. Plus, there is a free trolley service that runs the length of the Island every day. AMI truly has something for everyone, and everyone who visits falls in love with it. We are sure you will too! So, reserve your vacation home today . . . seven miles of pristine white beaches and beautiful sunsets await you!
