Perfect in every way!
Fern Cottage was perfect and just as described. It was extremely well equipped, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The upstairs deck was perfect for breakfast, overlooking a very quiet street. The pool area was outstanding, lots of seating, lots of shade when you needed a break from the hot AMI sun. The fridge was a welcome addition when we wanted a cold drink. The pool was amazing, lots of room to swim and play. Gill was very easy to communicate with and our security deposit was quickly returned on our return. Key pick up and return was very straightroward. Fern Cottage is ideally suited for both beach and bay and we hope to return one day.
Thank you. We love AMI and are glad you did too. We visit regularly constantly adding new things for our guests. Look forward to helping you again one day.
Very nice house
This house was very nice. Close to the beach access plenty big for our family of 5. The pool was nice and the pool area was great for grilling and having dinner outside. The house was very clean the beds were super comfortable. The house was super clean no dirt in sight. The only suggestion I would make is the blue beach chairs be replaced the fabric is ripping at the seam and the beach wagons wheel was off. They had several bikes which we used daily plenty of pool toys for the kids. I would definitely stay here again!
Thank you for your kind words. We try to offer an excellent experience for our guests. We visit regularly, as we love the island, and make sure everything is of a high quality. I am sorry to hear about the chairs, we will replace these in Sept when we visit. I am not sure what has happened to the trolley, there are 2 so I hope that one was sufficient for your trips to the beach, again this will be dealt with. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I hope that you will visit us again soon.
Nice spot on Anna maria
Only issue I’d say is the pool is not accessible from inside— you have to walk outside to get there. I’d also expect that for 600$ a night there would be soap and shampoo but perhaps that would be asking much
Thank you for your review. Soap should have been provide, I will investigate why it was not with our cleaner, thank you for bringing this to my attention.
The house is wonderful and we had a fantastic time
The house is wonderful and we had a fantastic time there. I have rented many properties in different locations across Europe and the States and I can honestly say that this is the best.
The house is beautifully decorated, well equipped and felt more like a home than a rental property. We had everything we needed down to beach cart and bicycles.
I do hope to return again in the not too distant future
We visit the house island for at least two months each year and have tried to create a house that feels like a home, buying the things that we want to be around. I am pleased that we have hit the mark.
Great comfortable home
Fern Cottage is a great comfortable and well appointed property situated in a nice quiet location on the island within easy reach of the beach. Everything we needed was provided and Gill the owner and the management company she uses were all extremely helpful and accommodating. The pool was great, being large enough for a nice swim with shade afforded at all times of the day by the covered area and the surrounding trees. Little touches like the fridge down in the pool and BBQ area make a holiday so much more enjoyable. As for AMI - our fourth trip and without doubt we will go back for a fifth as we love it. Lovely and peaceful, great restaurants and bars and within striking distance of shopping malls and theme parks if you want them. And on this trip, a manatee swimming past us on day one in the sea within touching distance. Thank you very much.
Thank you , I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We visit often, to make sure that we provide a high standard to our guests and add things that we like to enjoy - a cool drink by the pool!
OMG - PARADISE !!!
Thanks Gill for an amazing stay at your beautiful home. The house had every conceivable mod con. The stroll to the beach only 5 mins away. We are a well travelled family of 5 and I have to admit that the beaches on AMI are easily the best I've ever visited. We had tickets to Busch Gardens and planned to drive to Tampa on one of the days - but everyone (incl kids 18, 15 and 11) didn't want to leave the island. The north end is very quite (and so relaxing) everything closes by 10.30pm - so won't suit some people, but for us it was perfect. Lazy mornings by the pool - bike rides to Pine avenue (4 bikes) for lunch and the to beach for the afternoon to watch the amazing sunsets, drinking cold glasses of wine from the cooler and raising a toast as the sun set. Some very good restaurants nearby for dinner. Absolutely wonderful. We walked to the beach some mornings too to watch the sun rise. At this location it's easy to see sunrise and sunset. We also did a turtle watch walk one morning and discovered a turtle nest at bean point which was verified (saw the eggs) and we adopted the nest. The wildlife was amazing - so many birds, Dolphins, tarpons and manatees. Such a wonderful holiday. 705 felt like a home and I will definitely be going back again. Communication with the owner (Gill) was so easy and any questions we had were answered immediately - Gill thanks again - you're home and Anna Maria Island are wonderful - R
Hire a boat for the day, see dolphins, rays and manatee, great for the whole family. Take a fishing rod and see what you can catch, or take a trip out with one of the deep sea fishing boats. Last trip we caught a 30lb Tuna
