Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Great house, has everything you could ever need, Valerie is lovely and can't do enough for you, she can point you in the direction of the best restaurants, tell you where the best shopping is to be had etc. She is also a stealth machine who puts out and puts back the bins when twits like us forget! (They seem to be emptied virtually every day, you just need to know which colour). Anna Maria Island is gorgeous with great beaches and if that isn't enough you have longboat key and Bradenton where there are some great Seafood shacks (Starfish is a must)! Then if you want more sophistication you have Sarasota on your doorstep!

This was our first visit to the island and we will certainly be back.

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time on Anna Maria and a big part of that was the Gables and Valerie. The house exceeded our expectations (which were pretty high) and Valerie was great. Highly recommended and would love to go back.

We stayed at the Gables in early June for a week and we had a awesome time. There is plenty of room and the house is nicely furnished and has a great pool. The owner Valerie Clark checked on us and did a great job in making us feel comfortable and we felt like we were home. We definitely plan on going back next summer. We got spoiled and now we only want to stay at the Gables. Thank you Valerie and we look forward to seeing you next summer.

Excellent combination of property and hostess

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I made an initial enquiry Val the owner was responsive and efficient. It gave me complete confidence booking the property. All queries were answered within the hour.

Val kept in touch before arrival and everything was ready for us. It was easy to access the house and the property was beautifully decorated throughout. It was a real home from home ( except it was cleaner, tidier and more luxurious than my home) .The kitchen was fully equipped and all the furniture and fittings in the rooms were of a superior standard. There were piles of beach towels to use and a marvellous selection of beach equipment with a buggy and cool box to carry it all in.

The barbecue and pool were excellent and much used.

Val kept in touch while we were there and was on hand to recommend and help us source restaurants and entertainment. There was a good choice of friendly relaxed eating places and good deli shops with home made baking. Apart from the usual beach activities there were additional things to do nearby. We all tried kayaking through a local Reserve and my sons loved the flyboarding experience.

It really couldn't have been any better and we all had a marvellous stay. I would highly recommend Val and the property.

Perfect vacation home for our family

  • 5 of 5

The Gables was beautifully decorated with all the amenities one could want for a perfect beach vacation. From the gorgeous porches and pool to the impressive interior decoration to the well stocked beach shed (chairs umbrellas, etc), Valerie provided everything needed for a perfect week. House is very clean and well maintained and the beach is just a couple of blocks away, close enough for even the grandparents to take a stroll to see the sunset. You will not be disappointed.
