Why Kelly French chose Anna Maria

Our house is on the desirable north end of the 7 mile island within walking distance of Anna Maria's unique shops and numerous restaurants. It is a quiet, residential area on what we believe is the most beautiful beach in the world.

Beautiful property with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better location on Anna Maria! It was wonderful to wake up and sit on the deck overlooking the beach and the gulf every morning! Kelly was amazing at answering emails while we were there with any questions we had. Very accommodating!

The 2 laundry rooms were perfect for washing beach towels and loads of clothing. The refrigerator had an ice maker and filtered water which was so appreciated. All of the furniture was super comfy and clean. I especially LOVED the outdoor shower head which made coming in from the beach wonderful and refreshing! There were so many beach toys and chairs and such which was really convenient!

The only suggestions I would make are as follows:

-bring your own pillows for the king bed; they're pretty flat

-if you don't want to wake up at first light, bring a sleep mask

-there's not a lot of counter space in the bathrooms or storage in the bedrooms

-the beach wagon was wonky and hard to pull to the beach, so maybe don't count on that

Overall, we would love to stay at Halcyon again! Truly amazing!

Cute property

  • 5 of 5

The property was cute. Just enough space for 4 adults and 3 kids. My boys loved their time and didn’t want to leave.

Things that could use a little maintenance... dishwasher is very loud. Dryer downstairs blows so much lint into the clothing is impossible to use. Dryer upstairs is full of sand and the lint trap has a snag so it catches clothing and rips them. Without WiFi all of us had no cell phone service so every time it went out we had no phone or internet. Also there are bushes that have huge thorns (we call them cockleburrs in Texas) and to walk from the property to the beach you have a very narrow path and 5 out of 7 of us were either stuck in the leg or foot with the thorns.

The owner Kelly is very nice and I’m sure she will take my review and fix the issues quickly.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for mentioning appliance issues that need attention. My handyman will fix immediately. In late summer tiny sand spurs appear in the brush leading out to Florida beaches. If you wear your flip flops on the path to the beach, you'll be spared a prick. They are not a problem once you arrive in the white, sugary sands along the turquoise water of our award-winning Bean Point Beach.

Beautifully Styled in a Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Halcyon House. It is positioned on the best beach area of the island near Bean Point where it is much quieter but only a 15 minute beach walk down to the Sandbar restaurant.

Decor and terraces make it a pleasure to relax in and there is everything you need to have fun on the beach which is just a 1 minute stroll through the dunes out back... no shoes required!

Highly recommended.

Beautiful, peaceful, cozy and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had our favorite family vacation ever this year at the Halcyon House on Anna Maria Island. We enjoyed time together as a family with our 8, 13, and 15 year old at the beautiful beach just outside our backdoor. And we took the golf cart to the local restaurants and pier, went on a boat excursion to Egmont Island and snorkeled, rented a boat for a day, went parasailing for our daughter’s 13th Birthday, played games and relaxed at the house, worked out at the local CrossFit gym, and spent lots of time on the beach and floating in the warm, clear gulf! Our daughter said it was her best birthday ever (it happened to be her birthday during the time we planned our trip). And all five of us agree it is our top family vacation. We hope to go back soon! The owner is extremely kind and helpful to work with and makes you feel very welcome over text and email. The hardest thing was leaving!

Great property. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd summer staying at the property. We absolutely love the house and the location. Right on Bean Point with beautiful sunsets! Everythng you need for your beach stay and within walking distance to town. Our week in June was perfect. The weather was incredible and the beach was spectacular.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was everything we hoped it would be - and more. From entering the master bedroom and seeing the word "CALM" above the deck sliding doors - to quaint touches throughout the home - and the peaceful walk to the beach.....it was everything you see in the photos. The golf cart was an especially welcome and wonderful touch in getting to know the island - and visiting the Donut Experiment every morning! A place where priceless family memories were made......
