Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

You will love this home on Anna Maria Island. The Island is like the sleepy beach villages of long ago: no rides, no boardwalk, just a leisurely place to relax and enjoy the water, the beach, the pool and rejuvenate. This spacious 1600+ sq ft 3 story townhouse is a nicely decorated beach house with a gulf view and a beach view from the upper balconies.

It has your very own large PRIVATE heated pool for use by this property only which has two outside showers (1 open and 1 closed for privacy) in the pool area. You can come home from the beach, rinse off, and jump in the pool. The white sandy beach is only a 5 minute walk away.

The house has a 2 car garage and a pool room on the bottom floor with sliding glass doors to the pool. The 2nd floor has a large living room.

The lanai is fully screened and has seating for 6. The dining room seats 6, the kitchen has everything you need to cook. The island has plenty of restaurants at all prices which are very good and easy to get to on the FREE island trolley.

The top floor has 2 large bedrooms, the master has a king bed and very large walk in closet to hold your suitcases and whatever you bring with you. The other bedroom has a 2 twin beds with a TV. There is a full bath for each bedroom and a half bath on the second floor off of the kitchen.

Free Wifi, linens & towels, etc. + beach equipment provided.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall a good experience. The house was very clean but could use some upgrades in the kitchen and with the TVs. The pool was large which was great for maximum floating! Also, the beach is just a 3 block walk down the street which made it so convenient. The room with the pool table (not ping pong) had a strong musty smell so we didn't use it and the patio furniture could use an upgrade as well. Overall a nice trip if you are looking for an inexpensive way to enjoy the beautiful AMI beaches and restaurants nearby.

My family and I stayed here in early June, and it was perfect for our needs. While it's a little older and has some wear, it was very clean and cutely decorated. All the appliances you could need were available, although unlike most rentals we've stayed at there were no staples left, like salt and pepper or oil. We really enjoyed the pool and the pool table is fun if you're not a pro, because it is very uneven. The outdoor seating was nice, although there was some construction going on behind the house. And I loved the lush landscape with the plumeria tree, however the landscapers were cutting it all out when we left. :( Easy walk to the beach, and easy drive to anywhere on the island. Easy to book, and came with an app with all the info as well as a complete instructional binder and multiple brochures and magazines about the local restaurants and activities. We were even accommodated with a late check out!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle in sunny Florida. We loved our condo and the heated extra large pool. We played in it most every day. Loved that it was in the sun most of the day.The king size bed was very comfortable. The kitchen supplies were very adequate. Thank you Florida Dreams. Birthday

We returned a few months later, can't get enough of AMI and no where else we'd like to stay (until we buy our own home and live here on the Island)than the Sandcastle. It's clean bright cheery, well stocked with towels, kitchen needs, easy walk to the beach, garage with tons of space for all of our bikes (They have 1 so we rented 3 more, AMI is very bike friendly)...oh, and the pool is such a big hit! We'll be back soon. I feel homesick for AMI and the Sandcastle already!!!!

Reviewer Comments:

Wir waren drei Wochen in diesem Haus. Es ist ruhig gelegen, der nächste Strand ist in 5 Minuten fußläufig erreichbar. Der Pool ist groß und hat für viel Freude gesorgt. Das Haus bietet auch reichlich Platz auf zwei Ebenen (1. OG = Wohnbereich, 2. OG = Schlafbereich). Einkaufsmöglichkeiten mit dem Auto in 5 Minuten erreichbar. Dennoch können die frisch gemalten Wände und die vielen Accessoires nicht darüber hinwegtäuschen, dass das Haus einer gründlicheren Renovierung bedürfte - es ist abgewohnt und entspricht nicht unseren Vorstellungen von Sauberkeit und Hygiene. Teppichböden auf den Treppen und im Schlafbereich, stellenweise mit Flecken und Schmutzrändern. Küchenausstattung ist dürftig - alte, abgenutzte Pfannen, keine Backbleche, minderwertiges Besteck, stumpfe Messer, kein Pfannenwender, keine Schere, usw. Die Strandausstattung - ein kaputter Sonnenschirm, verrostete Strandstühle und kein Beachbuggy. Anfänglich vermissten wir auch einen Wäscheständer. Die Agentur stellte uns dankenswerterweise beides (Wäscheständer und Beachbuggy) zur Verfügung. Ein paar Eindrücke im Detail: In den Bädern vergilbte Fugen um die Waschbecken und Handtuchhalter, ausgewaschene und teilweise löchrige Strandtücher, Flecken an der Decke im Esszimmer, gebrochene Gardinenstangen mit Isolierband geklebt, abgewohnte und durchgesessene Möbel, alte und fleckige Terrassenmöbel und -polster, Tapeten, die sich an den Ecken lösen, verrostete und staubige Lüftungsschächte, usw. Ferner hatten wir mit Kakerlaken und Ameisen zu kämpfen - in Florida grundsätzlich normal, nur hatten wir in unseren bisherigen Aufenthalten nie welche in Küche und Essbereich - die Agentur schickte zwar einen Kammerjäger, aber leider war das nicht von durchschlagendem Erfolg gekrönt. Grundlegend renoviert und die Ausstattung erneuert, wäre das Haus ein sehr schönes Objekt - in diesem Zustand würden wir es nicht mehr buchen.

Map

Located on Anna Maria Island, home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the country! Although popularity has grown over the years, Anna Maria Island has maintained the southern charm, and coastal elegance of the same unexplored island of years ago. Don't expect any high rise condos, hotel compounds, and other than grocery shopping and drug stores, even the shopping is local and authentic! Ride the free trolley that spans all 7 miles of our island. Enjoy great food, friendly locals, great shopping and every single sunset!
