Over the Bay property was by far the highlght of our trip to Florida. Having decided to go to Anna Maria Island we found this place just by chance and would definitely recommend it to others. Thanks to its location on the island it allows to join sunrise in the morning at the beach in front of the house and sunset while walking the beach arround the northern edge in the evening. Everything was perfect, communication and local service were excellent, so were 2scoones ice-cream and breakfast at RR-Pier.
We loved staying at this house. Perfect location overlooking the bay and between both piers. Although there is a street in front, there wasn't a lot of traffic. The pool was a perfect size for our family, very private and nice landscaping with palm and coconut trees surrounding it. We even swam in it during tropical storm Colin. My mother is elderly and can't do a lot of walking, so the front porch was perfect for her. She enjoyed the view of the bay and seeing dolphins and the different types of birds. We had a wonderful time at Over the Bay and hope to stay there again in the future.
We have just enjoyed our 4th stay at “Over the Bay” in the last 3 years. We have also stayed at 2 other houses in Anna Maria when it was unavailable but keep coming back. The house is in a perfect location across the road from the bay-side beach. It’s just a short walk to several excellent restaurants, especially The Waterfront; the best on Anna Maria in our opinion and also according to Trip Advisor.
We thoroughly enjoyed the heated pool and the secluded backyard has both sun and shade areas at all times of the day. We loved sitting on the covered front deck every evening drinking wine while listening to the waves breaking on the beach and looking across to the lights on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. It is also just a short walk to Bean Point to watch the sunset which we do several times during each visit.
Barb has always been very responsive to all communications, including the few occasions we needed to contact her during our vacations. The house is well equipped, clean and comfortable and we keep coming back!
This was our second stay at the property, and I cannot say enough good things about our stay! First of the all, the owners are awesome to work with...very professional, responsive, and accommodating! Their home in Anna Maria feels like "home" the second you walk in. Sleeping arrangements are more than comfortable. But let's get to the best parts: 1) Location - overlooking the bay with a great porch out front, ice cream and restaurants near by, and any necessities like bike rentals from beach bums and the general store also just a short walk away. 2) The Pool - my son was literally in the pool every morning and every night, there is plenty of seating outside and is a very private backyard. 3) You are in Anna Maria - how can you lose!? Best vacation for our family...we will be coming back for years to come! Thank you Barb!!!
Over the Bay was a beautiful and comfortable home. It was very comfortable for the 4 adults staying here [women] with 2 full bathrooms. We enjoyed our coffee/tea every morning on the spacious 2nd floor deck. The kitchen is more than adequate for cooking, with an outdoor grill by the pool. The pool is lovely and we enjoyed it during our stay in September, 2015. The location was perfect with a beautiful view of the Tampa Bay. We rented bikes [nearby], and rode all over the island. You can also take a bus [free], that will transport you all over the island. There are restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Barb was very pleasant to communicate with and very prompt in her responses. Thank you again Barb and Karel for sharing your "little piece of paradise."
Over the Bay is a lovely and comfortable home. We stayed for 4 nights over the Thanksgiving holidays and had a wonderful time. There was ample room for the my husband and I, my daughter, my brother and my mother. The home has a wonderful location. We walked to downtown everyday as well as the gulf side of the island. It has a great view of the bay and it is was nice to sit on the porch and relax with a great breeze off the bay. The kitchen had plenty of room to prepare our Thanksgiving meal. The pool is lovely even though we only dipped our toes in since it was very windy and a little chilly during our stay. I would definitely return to Over the Bay in the future. Thank you Barb and Karel for sharing your lovely home!
