This property is professionally managed by Anna Maria Island Accommodations, located on the sunny and beautiful Anna Maria Island.
Group of 8 including family and friends enjoyed the house very much. There was ample room for everyone both inside and out with various porches and decks. It is very clean and well kept.
The pool area is like your own private resort. We used the heated pool and hot tub every day. The chaise lounges were the most comfortable I have ever used.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook for a large group. We ate in every day but 1 and we had all the equipment and cookware we needed.
The home is close to the beach, just a very short walk. Again everything that you might need for the beach is provided - comfortable chairs, beach towels and toys.
The home is also close to both the north and south bound trolleys. We rarely had to use our cars.
The owners of this beautiful home has thought of everything you would need for a beach vacation. Pack your flip flops and bathing suit and enjoy.
Just have to concur with the earlier reviews – I too thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing, week-long vacation with family in this beautiful, clean & well-maintained, fully equipped and spacious home on lovely Anna Maria Island. Lots of areas for people to gather together, and plenty of spots to be by oneself. We went for many walks, and watched several sunsets, on the gorgeous beach that is minutes from the front door; on one such occasion i even took a short dip in the chilly, January Gulf waters knowing that i could quickly return for a long soak in the hot tub. This home has absolutely everything; it is both comfortable and decadent, inside and out. All photos and claims made in the listing description are entirely accurate. I highly recommend it!
My husband and I have been all over the world and this by far has been the most relaxing and trouble free vacation. We enjoyed long walks on the beach (a block away), beautiful sunsets and unique shopping experiences...Anna maria Island has the feel of on old time small town. We loved it! The house is beautifully appointed, the owners sensed our every need and then some. We had luxurious accommodation, all the requirements for cooking that we could have ever needed as well as a magnificent pool and hot tub…we wish we had booked for a much longer stay. Thank you so much.
Inside and out, this house had everything we could possibly have wished and MORE. It seemed to anticipate our every need and want! It is spacious, with 10-foot ceilings and a smart design - I stayed with 6 other family members for a week and never once did I feel like we were on top of each other. The decor is fresh and uplifting - lots of white and tastefully bright colours - and the furniture and beds incredibly comfortable. The kitchen was clearly stocked by someone who cooks a lot themselves and appreciates high-quality tools - I made a number of great meals and never lacked for any cooking utensil or appliance. There are several upper level decks - one for any time of day - to enjoy the sun and a beautiful view. One had to remind oneself to leave the house occasionally!
The house is also incredibly well-located. The walkway to Holmes Beach is less than a block away - a narrow sandy path from the road through an archway of trees that magically opens up onto a clean wide sandy beach and the Gulf. We swam, while a few others surfed. and then we ran back to the beautifully-tiled heated pool and the hot-tub! Because it is so close, going to the beach was never a big production. As far as other amenities, the library, a pizzeria some shops (incl. a fresh fish and seafood shop) and a FREE trolley car stop were a 10 min walk in one direction; the free trolley going to the local supermarket was 5 mins away in another direction. Although we ate in, I spoke to others in the area who said there were some very good local restaurants. We used the outdoor BBQ and dining area which even has a fridge and bar - you will want for nothing in this lovely place and you will return well-rested and your energy restored. You can have any type of vacation you want in this home - whether you stay in a lot or use it mainly as your home base. It is truly special, and lacks nothing. You will consider yourself lucky to have found it!
Located in a quiet beachside residential neighborhood, just a short walk to the white sands of the Gulf beach.
