Overview

Anna Maria Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6) (attached)

Quaint and quiet Northshore Villa nestled in the heart of the village of Anna Maria, on Anna Maria Island. Our 2 bedroom 1 bath home has been recently updated for our guests enjoyment. Sit out on our deck in the morning and enjoy a peaceful quiet cup of coffee or enjoy a short stroll to eating wonderfully fresh baked pastries, breads, and roasted coffee at the local antique shop and bakery just off of Magnolia and Gulf Drive. In the afternoon just steps away are some of Florida's best sandy white beaches to relax on or dip your toe or more in the azure blue Gulf of Mexico. Stroll down Pine Ave. and step back in time with quaint store fronts and cafe's and front porches all with rocking chairs. Experience some of the best coastal shopping around. Along Pine Ave., Spring Ave, or Magnolia you have quick access to the west side of the island displaying 7 miles of a white sandy beach or to the east, just a short walk to the bay side of the island and spend time on the historic city pier while fishing, or viewing the Sunshine Skyway bridge.

While down on Pine Ave. you can also experience the quaint downtown area for ice cream, dining, theatre, and shopping. Come and experience island living with us.

Jeff and I have lived and worked here on Anna Maria Island for over 20 years now and would love to share our little piece of paradise with you.

About Michelle Laade

We relocated here to Anna Maria Island 19 years ago from Michigan. We now enjoy raising our family here in this quaint coastal community. We are business owners locally, my husband has his own painting and remodeling company. In addition to running our vacation rental I am a successful Realtor on Anna Maria Island helping to create a lifestyle for my customers so they too can enjoy our amazing tropical sunsets and be a part of a small quaint coastal community. I also teach an Art Enrichment program at my daughters local school here on the island. We also find time to enjoy the beach and watch a few sunsets.

Michelle Laade purchased this villa in 2004

Why Michelle Laade chose Anna Maria Island

We chose to purchase a vacation rental because we knew it was a sound investment and now feel that we hope to be able to share a little bit of this paradise we have found with everyone.

What makes this villa unique

The property is unique in its location. Sitting at the historic north end of Anna Maria. We are in the heart of the village of Anna Maria just steps away from Pine Ave. shopping and dining district. You are literally at the best end of the island and walking distance from everything local that you would want to enjoy and experience. Although having a vehicle is nice it is not necessary as there is a trolley that runs north and south on the island to all the necessary conveniences the island has to offer.

This is our third stay in this great little beach cottage and all of our stays have been wonderful. The location at the northern end of the island near Pine Street is ideal. The Gulf is about 2 blocks away, the free trolley stop is only about a block away. A short walk down Pine Street to shops, the general store and the piers. Good restaurants and bars a short walk away. The cottage is well equipped and very clean with a great little side yard to sit and enjoy a meal, the sun and drinks. Michelle is great to deal with. A little touch of paradise.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stay at this adorable, well appointed cottage. The location is wonderful, walking distance to all the shops and restaurants on Pine Ave. and close proximity to the beach. I can't imagine why any one would consider this place anything but spotless. The owners are also wonderful to deal with. We plan on coming back. This place is such a great value for the area.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Anna Maria island. We have friends and family that live here, but we wanted to have our own space. Location was great! We loved the cottage. It was very comfortable. This was our first time staying at the property. We will definitely be booking it again the next time we come. Great Value!

This is our second time at Anna Maria Island. We have stayed at this adorable villa both times. It is very clean and neat. Just two blocks from the beach.They have chairs, beach towels, and a wagon for your convenience. Michelle and Jeff are very sweet people. They are always quick to respond with any questions we had. My husbands parents live in Florida and have visited many beaches They came for a visit this year and loved our place. They said we would be hard pressed to find a prettier beach. We spent two weeks this year, can't get enough.

Wonderful cottage in the heart of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This rental exceeded all expectations. It was clean, neat, and nicely furnished. The tranquility of the home was only outdone by the village of Anna Maria and the nearby beach. Thank you Michelle. We shall return!

Not happy at all...excuses for problems from owner of this cottage

  • 1 of 5

The cottage was not as advertised as far as it is in some disrepair. BEWARE of the bed in the master bedroom, it squeaks and shimmys so much, the first night..(and the 9 nights after!!) my husband took one of the twin beds in the other room, and our oldest daughter slept on the couch. The girls (3 teens) were looking forward to being in one room together, but this ruined it. The bed is impossible to sleep on with two people. When we arrived, the deck boards are popping up in the drab side yard with crushed shells to walk on (must have shoes or sandals on to walk in the yard, they are sharp as glass.) So, 3 boards on the deck were popped up, and I almost broke my neck walking out there at night to sit. The beach umbrella was all broken to pieces with all the spines exposed, the table in the tiny yard is rusting. The toilet paper holder in the bathroom was held on with strapping tape, inableing us to change a roll so we kept the toilet paper on the sink. It needs attention for sure. I noticed the "glowing" reviews were from a few years ago. We are not unreasonable people, either..we were then accused of saying we "left the place messy" We cleaned very well. The wife, Michelle got extremely defensive when I mentioned the bed, and then proceeded to say the place was perfect. It is NOT. Beware of this cottage, but especially beware of dealing the owner. That is the way it was for us.... Not worth it at all. We love Anna Maria island, and have booked next year already on the north end, which is quieter and peaceful. The cottage we previewed is lovely as the rental person is too, we met them in person, and have booked 2 weeks for May. I have been a successful business owner since 1990, and if I ever treated my clients the way she treated our family?? ...I would have been OUT of business a long time ago. Owners of this cottage...please pay attention to the complaints, they are valid. My husband didn't sleep on the twin bed for kicks for 10 nights (he is 6'4") The first amenity is a GOOD NIGHTS sleep in hotel/cottage. This place fails miserably.

Owner's Response: As always we do appreciate feedback and are very proactive to correct things when they come about as it is a home , but certainly would prefer that you handle that feedback with us directly and not in a public matter. The one and only issue you made us aware of during your stay was the squeaky bed. We responded immediately by reviewing the bed ourselves by coming there the day you notified us. Upon checking it ourselves we did not find anything wrong with it. We also mentioned to you that the bed frame is less then one year old and fairly brand new. We also checked it after your departure again and did not find anything wrong with it. We also would like to add that all of our guests in the past year including our long term winter guests have never complained about the bed squeaking and many have already rebooked with us. The other complaints you have chosen to list here were never mentioned to us during your stay and only just now put in a review two weeks after your stay and after you were not satisfied with our decision to not compensate you for the bed. I will remind you of the horrible condition you left our home in that took myself and my cleaning lady over six hours to clean and make right again. Our wonderful reviews, consistent occupancy annually, and continued repeat guests over the years stand on their own merit. We will continue to remain professional in this matter as we have all along.
