Our family - Matt, Lana, and our Daughter Jora are from Canada where the Winter months can get to 40 below ! We fell in love with the Anna Maria / Bradenton area on our very first trip ! We remodeled this vacation home and are looking forward to many years of wonderful vacations in Florida.
Lana Maier purchased this house in 2011
It is a peaceful area, the beaches are beautiful, there is a lot to do in the area, the local residents are very nice, it is very safe - there is little to no crime, and it is very affordable !
We especially enjoy the location, we are within 5 minutes of everything that you would want or need !
My family and I stayed at The Palms for our first family vacation. The house had everything we needed and was really close to restaurants and beaches! We would choose this location again if we went back!
Warring !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very low Quality service and not clean . its really sucks the is furniture are old and ripped , the hot tube not clean and the none of the games working .
The house was beautiful, well appointed and so comfortable. It felt like home! Loved the pool after a hot day at the beach, it was so relaxing. Was able to walk to shopping and very good restaurants ( Hurricane Grill was my favorite). Can't wait for a return trip for an anniversary!! Thank you so much!
Stayed at the Palms with my son and his family. We just loved the house! They layout was great as there were 7 of us and we had plenty of room to spread out. House had everything we needed and then some... It was clean and well decorated. Location was great. Not far from beach and so many restaurants and shopping available. Carol was great to work with and made booking so easy. Loved it so much going back again!
Lovely home with so much to do you won't want to leave! This is a very comfortable place, with a great layout and access to the pool, hot tub, and game room area from the den and master bedroom. Beds are very comfortable, furnishings are comfortable, a desk and computer is provided. Really, everything you think you might need on vacation is available! And if you can't find something, both Chris and Carol are extremely helpful and efficient.
The pool is simply MARVELOUS! No freezing temps from owners too stingy to keep the heat on. It's perfect. The hot tub is large with great jets and plenty of heat as well. We love this place and will be back again.
Stayed here with my wife and 15 month old daughter! Its located great not to far from the beach and all your shopping and dining within blocks.Place is great when our kid would go to sleep me and the wife would have something to do (swim,hot tub,ping pong,play pool ) instead of being stuck in a hotel room! Well worth the money and if anything goes wrong you have the property manager on call!!
