Island living at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I look forward to our annual trip here every year. The house is immaculate, intimate, and is a slice of paradise located on one of the best islands in the world. We invite friends each year as well because it's spacious and offers plenty of room to let the kids and adults each have their "space"! The pool and the view make it so you don't even need to leave the house. Oh, and the jet skiing, mini golf, ice cream places and restaurants and bars are all less than a 5 minute walk! Prime property, prime location, and always well kept.

Very spacious, excellent location, perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a sibling and parent reunion to celebrate the 90th birthday of our father. There were nine of us and we loved the house!!!! Plenty of room - we even had one bedroom that was not used (the bunk room). We loved the location - right on the bay with a great dock for fishing, boating or just watching the sunrise! The pool was great but we had a tough time keeping the hot tub warm enough. As advertised there were two kitchens - one on each floor. We only used one for cooking but it was convenient to have another refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher for snacks. The upstairs porch overlooking the bay is screened in and was a popular gathering place. There were bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance yet the house was very quiet and private. We loved Anna Maria Island - laid back and peaceful but close to Bradenton just over the bridge, which is less than a block away. I would recommend this house for anyone looking for a lot of space at a reasonable price. We are even thinking about renting it again next year!

Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

We were at the Bayfront for two weeks. The pool was wonderful as was the view. Quick walk to the beaches and the pier. House could have been cleaner and updated. TLC is needed here. And ... perhaps a good interior designer. Has great bones; however, think it is over-priced for the condition of the house. The outside upper screened-in porch was wonderful; however, the floor was quite dirty. The maintenance folks we had to call couldn't have been nicer and quick to help us. Again ... view is awesome as was the pool and pool area.

much potential

  • 3 of 5

First of all, the review posted from right before this one must be from a different house. There is no elevator and there is no outside staircase! The house is arranged very well and is roomy and accommodating. Also, the posted pictures are very reflective of the house.

We had 9 adults and 4 children in our group. We were all delighted with the set up and floor plan - enough bedrooms and baths so that no one felt put out.

Drawbacks - not really very clean, pool was small and way too warm to be refreshing in 90+ degree heat. Air conditioner for the second floor did not function on our last night and the maintenance people on call did not address this - made for an unpleasant final night of vacation (didI mention it was 90+ degrees!?). Also, for two days we battled a termite infestation in the ceiling of one of the second floor's bedrooms - the first "specialist" thought they were in the bed's headboard!

Aside from these issues, we were pleased with Anna Marie Vacations and their representatives. The daytime employees were fantastic to work with and made a major effort to fix our issues. I think that this would be a great house for large groups if it were a bit cleaner upon checkin and if careful maintenance checks are performed.

I don't know what the solution to the overly warm pool could be but most of the adults in our group found it to be unpleasant. Next door is a marina from which we rented a pontoon for a week - everyone agreed that was the best decision we made! We saw a ton of wildlife while cruising around - dolphins came right up to our boat and we even had a group of 5 manatees swim with us when we all sat on a reef in the intercoastal.

In spite of the unexpected problems, all agreed it was a great vacation experience.

Average rental

  • 3 of 5

For the first two days the pool was cloudy which led to an ear infection for one guest. The elevator to our floor (there is a separate elevator to each floor) had a door that would stick which meant guests had to use the outdoor stairs. Since the floors were not connected except for the outdoor stairs, it made it difficult to interact with all the family during our reunion. We were there about three days before it was determined which dock we had access to. Someone had a large sailboat tied to the end of the dock. This person was just using the dock as a free place to repair the boat. After the people were photographed and their truck tag photographed, they decided to leave which open up the end of the dock for some fishing by the kids. This rental is great for those who like the beach and do not mind the 95 degree temperature. The pool was a life saver.

Excellent housing option!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this location and thoroughly enjoyed the house. There were 11 of us, so the six bedrooms and four baths worked well. The location is perfect - within walking distance to shopping, trolley stop, the sandy beach, bars, and many restaurants. The kitchen upstairs is roomy and well equipped. We called maintenance and they responded very timely. I would stay here again. The only reason this is not rated as a five is because the pool is small.
