About Mary Anderson

We purchased the condo to spend more time with each other at the beach and allow our family to use it, too. We love Anna Maria because it's laid back and yet there's a lot to do, great restaurants and bars, swimming, beautiful beaches, fishing, museums and parks. Best of all no high rises to obstruct the view.

Perfect location! Already planning our trip back!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful time at this condo. We can't wait to go back. We loved being right on the beach!

The condo was very spacious and comfortable. It had everything we needed. The decor is great. The kitchen was well-equipped and had lots of storage room. The bathrooms were large and very clean.

The condo sits on a beautiful stretch of beach - quite wide and not too crowded. We spent most of our time on the gorgeous beach but the pool and hot tub area was really nice and well-kept. Lots of lounge chairs with umbrellas. The entire building was well maintained. We also appreciated the covered parking - it kept the car cool and protected us from any rain storms!

Mary was a pleasure to deal with - very helpful in answering any of our questions. We're already planning our next trip!

My boyfriend and I just got back from staying here last night and we are already planning our next trip! I have stayed at this condo twice now and I can not say enough good things about it! Everything you could need for a vacation is already at the condo including a washer and dryer. The condo gives off a "beachy" feel that makes you feel right at home and relaxed! The lay out is very spacious as is the balcony with plenty of space to entertain or just enjoy dinner overlooking the ocean. The sand is white, the water was the perfect temperature and the sunsets here are to die for! There are many very good restaurants only minutes away (even walking distance!) and downtown is only about a 5 minute drive. There is also a free bus service that goes along the island so you can fully enjoy vacation without worrying about driving back to the condo. While there on this vacation, we enjoyed a sunset sail with Octavio which I highly recommend for an evening out! Kayak and paddle board rentals are also something we did this time and the rental company dropped off and picked them up where it was convenient for us! Our time here is never long enough and we can't wait to get back here!

Beautiful, spacious, beachfront condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation! The condo was very spacious and equipped with everything we needed! The beds were very comfortable and we loved the beachy feel of the decor! It was so nice being only a few steps from the white sand and beautiful clear water! This is a very quiet and relaxing place to stay. We can't wait to return!

Beautiful Condo and Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing vacation, preferrably close to the beach with a condo to accomodate our stay and the unit we rented certainly far exceeded our expectations. The owners have done a great job of providing a condo that is lovely with comfortable furnishings, well stocked (the kitchen has everything you need for entertaining), very clean and the location is perfect. We especially liked the convenience of all the closet and dresser space, the extremely comfy king size bed, washer/dryer in unit, lots of fluffy towels, and the light and airy perfection of the layout. Stand on the deck and view the nice size pool/jacuzzi or look directly out onto the Gulf and white sand. We loved beginning each day with a walk on the beach and each evening watching the sun set and perform its magic...breathtaking. This is a perfect condo/vacation spot for all ages and I can not rate highly enough. Anna Maria Island offers many fine restaurants, is easy to navigate, and definately a kick back and relax kind of place. The owners have put together an informative book with maps, restaurant suggestions along with menus, where to rent beach equipment,bikes and suggested activities to enjoy while on the island. We had a wonderful day trip with the fun loving and very knowledgeable "Captain Patsy" from Star Fish Dock to view Dolphins and Manatees. Our favorite restaurants, Eat Here, Star Fish Company Pier, and Sign of the Mermaid. We will definately look forward to a return trip and and staying at this lovely condo again.

Great condo and great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 17 days which were not enough. Anna Maria is the most beautiful beach. This condo was very comfortable, nicely decorated, and in a great location. It is an excellent place to just kick back and do nothing other than watch the sunset. The condo has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. My friends came for the weekend and were blown away by the condo and the beach. I have stayed in other condos and houses over the years on Anna Maria, and I will definitely try to rent this one again.

Great Island location on the north end of Holmes Beach, close to restaurants and many outdoor activities. There's a free trolly to local areas. Fishing from the nearby pier, rent a kayak or bicycle and see the island from a unique perspective. Go to Bean point for an after noon swim in the crystal blue waters of the Gulf.
