A Perfect Week
We were incredibly impressed with Lou’s unit. Appointed beautifully, spacious, quiet, and had everything you could possible need or want readily available. We loved it, our pup loved it (wish the beach was dog friendly) and we will definitely be return renters.

week before Irma was pretty wet. The condo however was great as usual.
Great as always!
I have been coming here for 5 years. Love the condo and Lou is a great owner to work with. Hated that Hurricane Irma ruined my vacation with my family but no complaints regarding the condo.
This condo is perfect in every way & Lou is fabulous to work with! The photos on the listing do not do it justice. The decor and beds have been updated since the photos were taken. The kitchen is well stocked. There is a beach/toy closet downstairs with many extra's for the beach. It was also great to be able to leave our tent in that closet every day. Be sure to walk around to the other side of the pool for the elevator. We didn't notice it until we had all of our luggage & "stuff" upstairs. You're just at the top of the stairs, so it wasn't bad to carry everything up. The complex is very quiet. There is a very nice (deep) pool. Most evenings we were the only ones at the pool. The only negative about the complex is, there is no grill.
Everything you need is on the island, so it's very convenient. We met locals who told us of a few places to eat and we were not disappointed. A few places we ate are Harry's, Cortez Kitchen, Rod & Reel and the best was Tide Tables (get the grouper bites).
Be sure to visit Beer Can Island. It's a short drive to Long Boat Key. Beautiful there!!
Anna Maria Island is awesome, very quaint. It's like stepping back in time to old Florida. We loved it! The most beautiful sunsets we have ever seen.
Be sure to leave a nice note in the guest book. It was fun to read those and see where all of the guest's came from.
Thanks Lou for a fantastic 10 year anniversary trip!
