Guestbook comments from the manager

We took our trip in May and the weather was terrific. The condo was equipped with everything you need and it was very clean. We loved that the condo was only steps away from the beach. Anybody who stays in this condo will not regret it!

excellent experience.

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was very nice, comfortable and clean, and spacious. It would have been helpful to know specifics about beach towels prior to arrival. We would not have had to bring our own because there was a closet full. Very roomy, great supply of linens. Kitchen had everything we needed. We would have liked some fold up lounge beach chairs. There was no place to rent them across the road on beach. We would have also liked noodles for water, we did buy them, and left as a donation to our Condo owner and guests. The condo did have 2 sitting beach chairs, if you prefer those types of chairs.

All and all it was a great visit! Great location right across from path to beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Great location, wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation condo was clean, comfortable and you can't beat the location. Right in the midst of restaurants and shops with the beach directly across the street, and the free trolley stop steps from the door - it really was a great location for our family vacation! Our family of four had more than enough space and enjoyed eating meals on the screened in balcony. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. We hope to be back next spring and I would definitly recommend it to others!

Great apartment, great location.

  • 4 of 5

What a find! An apartment that lives up to it's description, on a lovely complex, ( with it's own little fishing pier! ) ,that has a fantastic pool, tennis court etc. The apartment is very clean, well equipped and literally just across the road from the beach - what more could you ask for. Any questions/ help that you may need are easily answered by the on site staff who we found to be helpful.

Eating out? Try the breakfasts at the Gulf Drive Cafe - only a few minutes walk up the road. Watch the sea roll in while you eat the most fantastic french toast. They have a Tiki bar open in the evening too! What a life!!!

If you want to travel on the island, make use of the free trolley bus - the best value on the island!

The only reason for 4 and not 5 stars is that we felt that the a/c in the apartment was a little under par but it has plenty of ceiling fans so no real problem.

We have already booked again for next year - can't wait!!!!!

Die Lage der Wohnung ist perfekt!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren Anfang September 2014 für 1 Woche auf Anna Maria Island.

Die Lage der Wohnung ist perfekt für einen Strandurlaub. Nur über die Straße und einen kurzen Pfad laufen und schon ist man am Strand!

Wir haben uns in der Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung war sehr gut ausgestattet mit Handtücher, Küchenutensilien, usw. Es waren auch Strandstühle und 1 Sonnenschirm vorhanden. Der Pool in der Anlage ist auch sehr gepflegt.

Auch die ganze Abwicklung mit Bezahlung, Information über Email hat super funktioniert.

Wir waren mit Sicherheit nicht das letzte Mal in dieser Wohnung.

Car: recommended

Located on the west coast of Florida, Anna Maria Island is the barrier between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. Anna Maria Island is a laid back community that has been described as 'Old Florida' with white sand gulf beaches and only one building over three stories.

Tucked away on Florida��s Gulf coast in Manatee County and nestled between Tampa and Sarasota, Anna Maria Island is only 2 hours’ drive from Orlando, and can be a perfect way to spend a few extra days winding down from a busy theme-park filled adventure at any of Florida’s famous Universal or Disney parks.

Anna Maria Island has a number of award winning restaurants. Dining ranges from quaint pubs and bars to magnificent waterfront restaurants, nearly all featuring fresh seafood from local waters. There is FREE trolley service to travel around the island.

Most people visit Anna Maria Island for the exquisite beaches. Others opt for power boating, sail boarding or jet-skiing. Rentals and lessons are available.
