If you are looking for a great place to stay in Anna Maria Island and want to be close to the beach you will love these condos.

There are many charming restaurants within walking distance and plenty of stores and a major supermarket nearby. There is also a fishing pier next to the Café.

alamanda villa

  • 5 of 5

We rented unit #8 from 05/18 to 05/25 and found it to be everything we hoped it would be and more. All of the furniture and fixtures we used operated as they were supposed to, and, the location on Holmes Beach was close to other parts of the island. We found the condo very clean and offered a lot of small appliances other condos don't offer. The bed was very comfortable and the pool was heated to a comfortable temperature and tended to properly. The customer service was excellent with all of our questions answered thoroughly. I would have no problem recommending this condo to both friends and family. The furnishing and decor were quite tropical yet it provided a homey type atmosphere.

Not the cleanest

  • 3 of 5

We were fairly disappointed with the condo. First, we were charged $200. more for cleaning and taxes but there was never a receipt. The pool was filthy. Although they ckeaned the water, the pool itself was badly in need of a scrub! We did NOT get in! Our sliding doors in Unit 1 had no locks - wooden poles instead to block entry. There was a dead palm tree rat outside our door one day. The condo had different furniture than in the video. Not impressed. We will not be back and do not recommend.

Excellent place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am hesitant to recommend this rental ONLY because we want to be able to return as often as possible! We have had the pleasure of staying in both Condo #1 and #8. Both are wonderful. Condo #8 is upstairs and has a nice balcony to overlook the beach. Condo #1 is ground floor with a sliding door right out to the pool and deck area. The pool and deck are usually empty so it feels as if you have your own private patio. The condos are very nicely appointed and the beds are so comfortable. The condos are convenient to the island trolley stops and the beach is just a few steps away. Anne is VERY easy to work with and offers reasonable rental rates for the location.

Perfect condo on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit 8 and had an amazing time. Steps from the beach. Steps from the cafe on the beach where they play live music as you watch the sunset. Truly a gem on AMI. It really is the best liitle beach house on the island. Anne is great and the unit was clean and very well kept. We had a simply fantastic time. We will be back and i will definitely refer more people her way. Awesome find!

It's True- it's the best little beach house on AMI

  • 5 of 5

This house was a wonderful place to spend our vacation. The property was clean, well maintained and up to date. the pool was right outside our back door and it was private.

The location was ideal, just a few houses from the quiet beautiful beach. The owner was helpful and courteous, even gave us a list of places to eat and visit. We would definitely recommend this house to others, friends and relatives.

We hope to go back soon and will definitely try to stay there again. Great experience! No disappointments! We loved it!

Paradise !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were just so pleased with everything about #8 upstairs. The comfortable decor and had everything there we needed. The beach is such a short walk and nice to have the Manatee Beach cafe & tiki bar close by. Took the free shuttle bus around the island to sightsee and then decide where to go for dinner, etc. The pool is small but great if not many are there. We even stayed an extra night - like it so much !
