Great pool and location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son and I stayed for a week and loved it. The location was perfect, we never counted the steps to the beach but it was close and easy to walk with a three year old and beach chairs/umbrellas. The private pool was amazing - we were lucky that the other side was empty the week we were there so we had the place to ourselves. The pool felt secluded and was a great area to spend time by ourselves when not at the beach.

The back patio was also nice to have for grilling and for our son to run around. Both a gas and a charcoal grill were provided and were very clean. Publix and Walgreen's(with a liquor store) were within close walking distance - but did not feel too close either. The trolley also stops in front of Publix in walking distance.

We would definitely look at Gertie's again if we come back to Anna Maria Island.

Best location on the island!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Gerties for a week and we loved it! We found the place to be clean, cozy, and with the best location in town. You are a block away from the beach access, walking distance to Publix, island shops, and a trolley stop. We loved the beach area because it wasn't too crowded like other areas. The house includes all you need to have a great vacation, including beach chairs, beach umbrella, etc. The management company was great in answering our questions and special request. I highly recommend this location.

Gerties was Great

  • 5 of 5

Gerties was an ideal location for us. The house was exactly as the photos indicated, and it was very clean. The location was ideal since it was off of the main road but still less than two blocks walk to the beach. Being within very close proximity of shopping and a few restaurants was a big plus. We really enjoyed having our own pool and found that it was a comfortable temperature the entire time we were there. The property is small and ideal for two people. I don't think I would want to have an entire family staying there for an extended time though. We certainly enjoyed our month at Gerties!

Notes:
Pool heaters in private homes are locked for your safety and controls must not be tampered with as they are monitored by the pool company. 85° is the highest heat temperature setting. Pool temperatures will probably stay around 76° during the winter months. Please note if cold days occur, water temperatures will drop and may stay cooler longer. Pool heaters will not operate and will automatically shut down if outside temperatures get too cold. While we take every precaution to ensure that pools are heated as specified, weather conditions may affect the temperature of the pool. Outdoor spas are not hot tubs. The temperature of a spa is typically set at the same temperature as the pool. In the event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, Duncan Real Estate will expedite repairs as quickly as possible. It may be necessary to close swimming pools for maintenance purposes. No refund or rent adjustment will be made for circumstances beyond our control.
