About the property


Addy's Inn on beautiful Anna Maria Island is the home you will want to come back to time and time again. We are family oriented and pet friendly. We have 3 lovely bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The open setting has room for everyone. The living room is equipped with a 50' flat screen TV including HD satellite, DVD player end extensive movie library. The sofa has three recliners and plenty of room for everyone on movie night. The kitchen overlooks the living area via an island bar with granite counters. You will find the kitchen equipped with all the amenities including numerous pots & pans, appliances and dinner ware to put on a huge feast. This is not your typical 'condo kitchen'. If you have a special request, upon reservation let us know and we should be able to provide any kitchen gadget you could want. The dining room is opposite the living room, also with a view to the kitchen. French doors open out to our private deck that overlooks a lush backyard. We are conveniently located one block east of the Gulf and two blocks west of the bay.

On the ground floor patio you will find our swim spa. The pool offers the perfect way to start your day with an invigorating swim in currents up to 4 miles per hour. The pool is a great spot for a soothing soak in the jetted seats after a hot day on the beach. During our Florida Winters the spa is heated for a relaxing soak. Addy's Inn is located between the Manatee Bridge & Cortez Bridge. When you are ready to explore Anna Maria Island you can take the free trolley to shops & restaurants.

The island offers an endless supply of recreational opportunities. Make your reservation early. You will love Addy's Inn! (For large groups inquire about 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 2 kitchens, l/r, d/r and elevators availability.)

About Melissa and Jim

My husband Jim and I have been in the hospitality business for years. We have owned small motels in Bozeman Montana and Daytona Beach Shores. We have many friends across the country and globe that we have met through our rental properties.

We are family oriented and look forward to meeting you and making new friends.

Melissa and Jim purchased this house in 2010

Why Melissa and Jim chose Anna Maria Island

Anna Maria Island is truly unique. This island is home. Home for year round residents, part time residents and visitors alike.

You can take a twenty minute drive to the largest shopping mall in Florida. In less than an hour you can spend the evening dining and dancing in Ebor City or trying your luck at Hard Rock Casino Tampa. But in just a few steps, short bike ride or Island Trolley you can be dining in a world class restaurant, eating fresh caught fish off the dock, listening to local island talent and dancing under the stars.

If you are looking for beauty and rest, elegance and charm then Addy's Inn is where you want to stay on Beautiful Anna Maria Island.

We look forward to sharing our bit of paradise with you.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location.

Beautiful new home. High end appointments. Down home attitude.

Perfect location fabulous immaculately clean home with great owners! Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

From inquiry to booking, Melissa and Jim where thorough and full of information. The were wonderfully willing to accommodate our 220 pound English Mastiff, as well as the rest of our pack - We did our best to keep it clean, so I hope we didn't ruin pet accommodations for future guests.

The home was impressive. My #1 pet peeve is cleanliness. I have stayed in 5 star resorts that I did not want to even touch the shower walls and I definitely wouldn't use the tub. BUT NOT HERE-- The bathrooms were SPOTLESS and I was thrilled to relax in the Jacuzzi bathtub! The whole home was spotless too.

We stayed in the 3rd floor unit. We had the use of our own elevator to take us up to our beach haven. Each bedroom is a very nice size and decorated beautifully. The family areas are spacious, clean, and offer lots of seating. The sectional even had two recliners. Downstairs on the entry level there were several bookcases filled with games, movies, and books. Our upstairs, outdoor patio sported a table with chairs and a gas grill. Since our unit was on the top floor, we had access to the sundeck on the top of the home. It was lovely to sit and enjoy the sunset from this location while cooking dinner. On the ground floor, in the back gardens, there was a spacious covered swim spa. The surrounding gardens are well maintained with beautiful foliage.

The beach is a block away - but it is a small block. I've had to walk further to reach the beach at several of the beachfront resorts that I have stayed at. So - shorter walk than you would expect and Melissa and Jim supply you with this cool beach cart that has a cooler, carries the supplied beach chairs, and umbrella. Plus it has a large basket to transport towels and other items to the beach. Once you get to the beach, the water is crystal clear and it's not overrun with people. It's definitely a great beach for families, retirees, and everyone who prefer a quiet laid back beach.

Melissa and Jim live close by so if you need anything they are readily available to help. I feel like we have found new friends.

Anna Maria Island, Jim and Melissa and their property Ilexhurst | Property ID 479890 is the perfect answer to calm your soul and unwind from daily life stressors. We will definitely return. We're truly thankful to have found this wonderful property and its friendly owners.

Great big hug to Melissa &Jim for giving me my sanity back. :-) Until next time... Cheri

Misleading Listing

  • 1 of 5

We rented Property 479890 in September 2015 for a week-long stay from March 26 to April 2, 2016. We traveled from Minneapolis, MN. The property was misrepresented in the following ways:

(1) The listing describes a top-floor unit with a roof top deck and views of the sunset and the Gulf. We had a middle floor unit with no rooftop deck. We had no idea there were two units in this property. If we had, we never would have rented it. This is a major misrepresentation of the property. All of the photos in the listing were of the upstairs unit. There was absolutely no mention of two units nor was there a choice as to which unit to rent.

• TVs did not include Netflix even though was described in the listing.

• No working DVD player - owner explained that it had recently broke, but listing said there should've been 2 (in living room & master) - so did both break? Seems unlikely

• Pictures of kitchen showed a mixer on the counter, toaster oven and an island. Our room didn't have these "gadgets" as stated in description, nor did it have an island. We only had very basic items.

• Pictures show an aquarium in the rental unit (and in description) - we didn't have one.

• Pictures showed view from a rooftop deck - a view we didn't have, nor have access to

• Children's books were listed in amenities and there were none.

• There was a library of DVD movies available for guests - but no DVD player meant we were unable to utilize this feature

There was no hair dryer in the unit.

I immediately raised these issues with the owners. Their response was to say that they do not differentiate between their units and that nobody has ever complained before. I asked for monetary compensation as a result of the misrepresented unit. Their response was to send an email offering a refund but only if we departed by 10:00 a.m. the next morning. Because this was the busiest week of the year on Anna Maria Island, this was essentially a meaningless offer because we had nowhere else to go.

This property was not what we rented. We are requesting a 50% discount from the price we paid. I would not have rented this unit if I had known what it was. This type of misrepresentation should not be allowed and these owners should be required to honestly and accurately list their property. We feel taken advantage of deceived. Please help us resolve this problem.

The owners will likely state that we booked the property for 4 people but that we had 8 people staying there. This is true. We booked the propert

Owner's Response: THIS REVIEW IS NOT ACCURATE. As a professional host I will not go into details about this guest. Please consider our other reviews and book with us accordingly. If there were a way for a property owner to post warnings about prospective guests I would place Christianna F. on the top of that list. Melissa Strader

Very nice home

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the home is very nice and conveniently located. The beds and furniture are very comfortable and the bathrooms are gorgeous. The location was very convenient to everything. It's halfway between the two bridges so all of the stores and restaurants are less than 5 minutes away and it was a 5 minute walk to the beach with the beach cart. The kitchen comes stocked with a good amount of dishes and even some cleaning supplies. I had brought my own dish soap and dishwasher detergent and was pleasantly surprised to find that it came stocked with both, as well as a small bottle of laundry detergent for the in-unit washer/dryer. The elevator is a little tricky to figure out but was great when it came time to haul a lot of stuff up and down. We could just load it up and make one trip rather than go up and down the stairs with our belongings.

The only problem we had while there was the absence of a remote for the DVD player. The unit comes with one which is great and there are lots of movies in the lobby that can be borrowed but without the remote, it was a bit of a pain to use the DVD player since we were limited to the buttons on the player itself and it only has stop, start and open. We couldn't ever fast forward or pause. They need to get a new remote to correct this problem.

We didn't eat out a lot while we were there but my kids really liked going to Joe's Eats & Sweets in the cute little downtown area. They have a lot of flavors of ice cream and even have tiny cones for little ones which my 2 year old loved. The German restaurant on the north side of the island was VERY good.

I would definitely recommend both the island and the house to my friends. It was beautiful and the beaches are gorgeous. The water was just perfect for my toddler and the location is close enough to Tampa to easily do day trips to some of the area attractions which we did. MOSI, Florida Aquarium and Clearwater Marine Aquarium are all just over an hour away and well worth the drive.

We enjoyed staying in this modern, well maintained property with its convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was as stated in the description of this property, with a few exceptions. We expected to be on the top floor with access to the roof deck. We were on the second floor with no access. There was a whole library of DVDs in the first floor entrance, but no DVD player. The apartment was meticulously clean, and the amenities were many. Loved the large walk-in showers, new washing machine and dryer. The back porch was lovely, except when the other tenants were using the swim spa. It was a very convenient location, just a block from the beach. The cart full of beach towels, beach chairs, even a cooler to take with us to the beach was very useful. All in all we enjoyed our stay on Anna Maria Island.

We just arrived home after spending a week at Addy's Inn. The place was clean , beautiful, just as described. It was steps to the beach and used the cart with folding chairs and umbrella daily. That was so convienient! The swim spa was wonderful, and we loved the spa bathtub in the master sweet. The owner, Melissa, was very nice and kind too. I would highly reccommend staying here and hope to again ourselves!

This property is located in the heart of Anna Maria Island with restaurants and shops within walking distance. The beach is just steps away and the Bridge Street Pier is perfect for fishing!

We are located just one mile from either bridge to the mainland. Herb Dolan Park with a canoe launch is just around the corner.

Pickle Ball has become a hot activity and the island has several places to play.

Just a short drive away you can visit Mote Marine Aquarium, South Florida Museum and Planetarium, Ringling Museum and many other local treasures.

You have the choice of doing everything or nothing. On Anna Maria doing nothing is pretty perfect in itself.
