We have stayed on AMI every year for the past 15 years! This was our first visit to Summer Breeze and we were not disappointed. A perfect cottage for 2. The small space is perfectly situated for comfort and attention to detail is evident. Great outside spaces as well. Available kayaks were a great perk. Easy/close beach access . Who could ask for more? We will be back Summer Breeze!
It is rare that a place will live up to its pictures and description, but Summer Breeze did not disappoint. In reading previous reviews, all we can say is "ditto."
We found this rental to be immaculate and delightful in every way. Two things that especially impressed us were how quiet the area was, and the wonderful, immediate response to any questions or problems. For example, we arrived on a Saturday, but we didn't try the TV until Sunday. We found access to about anything one could hope for, EXCEPT just regular channels. We called the office and left a message, expecting an answer sometime Monday, since it was a weekend. However, not more than 15 minutes later our doorbell rang, and a very pleasant e-tech spent about 30 seconds showing us how to work the TV. We asked where we could purchase a lighter for the grill, and shortly a young man arrived with a lighter.
We are so pleased that we took a chance on an unseen vacation rental. It provided a wonderful experience.
We checked in yesterday and are going to be here for a week. I'm so impressed that I wanted to leave a review now, while I'm here in this incredible little gem of a house.
It is perfect for 2 people and the layout in this small house is amazing. Despite it's size, the kitchen is quite large and I'm drooling over the laundry room.
When I say that there is attention to every detail - I cannot stress that enough. Every piece of furniture, decoration, cabinets, appliances and TVs are top of the line and immaculate. Every single kitchen drawer is organized and clean with high end cookware. Even the utensils are perfectly staged in the drawers!
It is also immaculate.
It's location is perfect as well. We have not used the kayaks yet - but most certainly will!
The only ever so slight drawback was the learning curve for us "older" folks in using the TVs. If my adult children where here - it would not have been a problem at all. However, we persevered and conquered this top of the line technology, feeling quite proud of ourselves. Who knows, we may be playing monopoly on the TV by the end of the week.
Do not hesitate to choose this place. Even the folks at the rental agency on Pine Ave raved about it. Oh- they are an added bonus as well. The wonderful guy who checked us in gave us many tips and advice.
We will definitely stay here again.
This was our third visit to Anna Maria. Summer Breeze cottage was the nicest place we have stayed in. The accommodation was ideal for two people, the equipment was of the highest quality and the availability of the kayaks was a superb bonus. Beach, restaurants and trolley stops were within walking distance.
we will definitely stay at Summer breeze again.
AMI and Summer Breeze were perfect! A welcome respite from a snowy New England winter! We had stayed once before on Anna Maria many years ago. We loved it then and we still do! Being so close to the Tampa Bay and Gulf Beaches is wonderful and the backyard dock on the Bayou is a bonus! Summer Breeze is a lovely, well appointed and equipped cottage for two people. Everything needed and more was there and in good condition. I wish we could have stayed all winter!
We have stayed in AMI before and it quickly became a place we knew we would visit again and again. Having had another US holiday booked with VRBO accommodation we thought we would try it for this trip. We weren't disappointed - whilst the weather was terrible and cold which was a shame, it didn't spoil our time there. Staying at summer breeze became our little haven. It is so comfy and well set up/equipped we were even trying to see of there was that the owners hadn't thought about. It is very well positioned for everything and I wanted to buy it! We will definitely be back and next time I want to use the kayaks.
