GREAT vacation spot from a repeat renter

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for three years now, and have booked for next year. We do an extended vacation to escape our Northern winters ( 30t years now) and love Anna Maria Island. When the place we stayed no longer became an option we were so happy to find this place. The North end of the island is quiet with way less hustle then many Florida spots. But within driving distance for many of those fun places to go. This house is perfect for that quiet relaxing vacation. It is extremely clean and well cared for. It has had improvements ( from large items down to small little detailed items ) every year with any needed updates. Kitchen is well stocked with all your needs for that home cooked meal. Linens are clean and newer for that at home stay you want. We LOVE the screened in porch , it is spacious enough for everyone to enjoy together, plus tucked just enough to give you that feeling of privacy, but with a great view of all going on around you ( we pretty much live out there ). The short walk to the beach makes my day, a book and a chair to enjoy my day, feet in the sand, sun on my face and the sound of the ocean. And occasional sea life views are great. Walk the beach to get that trophy of the perfect shell or sand dollar. And if it's not a beach day, or you are just not up for sand the pool is great big enough to float, or set on the step, or just a swim to cool off. Walking distance to many things as well - our personal favorite is the Rod N Reel Pier, great Florida atmosphere. If you want to go farther but don't want to drive, walk to that trolley stop or our other fun thing we love is call The Monkey Bus! The owner of the house is great to work with and easily reached for any concerns . Would I recommend this house, this location, this vacation? YES, YES and YES!!!

Wonderful quiet residential area

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this home! Altogether we had 4 adults, two 4-year-olds, and a baby. There was plenty of room for everyone. The stairs to the loft were a little scary for the 4-year-olds, (well, they weren't scared at all, just the parents!) but they loved being up there and there is so much room. The updates are beautiful, both bathrooms give plenty of space, the kitchen is great, I loved the window between the kitchen and the porch to pass things back and forth when getting ready for meals...and that porch! Absolutely best thing about the house, and there are a lot of things that are great about the house! Completely screened in, huge, wonderful table that sat all of us, and I voluntarily slept out there a couple of nights because the weather was so nice and I was very comfortable on that couch and no bugs at all. Our kids loved playing out there and the baby was able to scoot around (not crawling yet) with no concerns for safety or any other hazards. One mention about the pool from one parent to another--if you are worried about staying at a home with a pool for safety reasons, don't be. The pool is completely fenced in with two child-proof locks, there is no way that a child would be able to get in there unless you were completely careless and somebody didn't lock a gate and really wasn't watching a child. You have to go all the way down the stairs, through the carport and get into the locked fence to get to the pool. I had purchased one of those pool alarms with the bracelets for the 4-year-olds but I am taking it back because I never needed it (and this is coming from a very overprotective mother). The pool is great, nice size and not too deep, the stairs were great for the kids, and we made use of the pool noodles and other toys for the pool. The home is in a lovely residential neighborhood, I didn't realize how lucky we were to be staying in that area until we traveled the island a little bit and saw how busy and loud it was in other areas. Wonderful walks to the beach, we spent a lot of time there but you definitely want to go to other beaches to swim because of the rip tides at this end of the island. Some of the extras they have, like the wagon and beach chairs and such to use, are a bit old and rickety but do the trick. We would stay here again, esp. since the kids will be older and more apt at managing those stairs.

Wonderful location and home away from home!

Anna Maria is a beautiful island and very relaxed. The house had a sensational location close to sunrise and sunset beaches. Additionally the pool, home amenities and owner were great. Very thankful for this family vacation

Perfect Gateway for Beachgoers

  • 5 of 5

This Anna Maria Island house is perfect place for all travelers looking for easy beach access, romantic sunsets and all kind of water sports activities. House is spacious and well maintained. Owners are great, happy to help and make visitors' stay unforgettable. Despite bad weather in 2 first day (hurricane Hermine) we enjoyed our trip a lot. Close to this location you can find restaurants, stores and rental facilities. We walked, swam, paddled board, rode on bicycles, ate great food, and had a lot fun. We strongly recommend this place.

Great location and nice amenities

  • 3 of 5

We loved our stay at Anna Maria Island. We did some cooking on our own at the house but ate at various restaurants as well. This house was conveniently located to awesome restaurants and the beach. The home was very clean and pictures portrayed accurately. Only a couple of drawbacks for us. First, the pool was serviced and out of use for most of one day at the house with no notice to us. We had just come home from a late breakfast and were looking forward to spending the day in the pool with the kids. When we arrived back at the house, the pool guy told us the pool was out of commission for 3 to 4 hours as he had just added chemicals. We had planned to spend the day at the pool since it was a little too hot at the beach and were unable to do so that day. The second thing is that linens and dinnerware/flatware are in serious need of updating. But overall, we had a blast and thought the house was perfectly located on the island. We walked to the beach and saw sea turtles, manatees, dolphins, and even a shark! Great place for a family vacation!

Owner's Response: We always welcome our guests to write about their stay and add their suggestions. While the aggravation with the delayed usage of the pool due to the treatment of chemicals is an annoyance; it is something that is advised, as it may cause skin irritation. It is also typical of all pools. We have replaced all bed linens recently and strive to maintain our good standing with our guests.

Awesome Family VC Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house especially when traveling with kids. The large loft with 3 double beds is a great place for the kids to have their own space. We enjoyed having the swimming pool and the location couldn't be better for the very short walk to the beautiful beach. This house has everything you need and want and more than expected. We've stayed at this house twice now and expect to want to go back again. Anna Maria Island is a very laid back spot away from the high rise condos and crowds we found when staying in Destin. Highly recommend this house and this island.

Our home is located at the quieter north end of AMI, just a short walk to 3 beach access points and the Rod & Reel Pier. We are also within walking or riding distance to Pine Ave. where there are many lovely dining and shopping options. The Island Shuttle bus runs from the Main City Pier, located on Pine Ave. to Coquina Beach and runs every 15 minutes; making numerous stops along the way. It is a great way to see the many attractions in and around AMI. Please refer to the AMI Chamber of Commerce website for a full listing of activities and attractions to enjoy.
