Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the use of your wonderful home! The sunsets, manatees, dolphins and beach are awesome. Your house is so much bigger than the pictures made it look...and beautiful! We ate breakfast at The Rod n Reel, lunch under the umbrella in the pool and dinners all over the island! Can't wait to come back.😎 5 stars!!

Loved this little piece of paradise! Very clean and the location is perfect! Although we had some issues with a leaky shower door and a doorknob/lock problem, Bill was always there for quick inspection! Made use of the bicycles a lot and many a night walked home from the Rod and Reel Restaurant. Record setting weather for 8 days added to the perfection! We couldn't have been happier!

Great location on Anna Maria

  • 5 of 5

First off, Pam was kind enough to allow us the opportunity to change dates of our stay from Sept., when Irma hit, to Dec. The cottage is located within a couple of blocks of both the Bay and Gulf--easy to pedal to on the bikes provided by Pam. The kayaks were fun to use, also. The virtually new pool was very nice. The kitchen was remodeled and well supplied.

Pam's father-in-law lives across the street and stopped over a couple of times to assure everything was OK. The cottage was roomy--some updating has been done and some needs to be done.

The pictures don't do this home justice!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location near the beach at Bean Point which was beautiful and not at all crowded. We enjoyed walking to Rod and Reel Pier and having dinner/watching people fish. We saw dolphins on a couple of occasions at the Pier and Bean Point. It was convenient to have the beach chairs and sand toys to use and our children had a ton of fun each day at the beach. The heated pool was amazing too and something we enjoyed everyday. Truly an amazing memorable experience!
