Anna Maria Island is a bit of old Florida. It doesn't offer mega resorts or towering condos with crowded beaches, it does offer quiet white sandy beaches and a great family atmosphere. Come see why so many others are finding out that you don’t have to compromise on a great beach vacation.

New for 2014, the beaches on Anna Maria Island are being re-nourished so the beaches up and down the island are wider than ever.

We hope you decide to stay with us.

Mahalo and Aloha.

About Danny and Brenda Chin

We have have been married for 30years and have recently discovered the 'Art of Hospitality'. 'We never thought we would be in the hospitality industry, but absolutely love it. We enjoy meeting our new friends and doing what is necessary to make their stay a memorable one.

Danny and Brenda Chin purchased this house in 2010

Why Danny and Brenda Chin chose Anna Maria Island

When we first saw Anna Maria Island, we were surprised at how little it was built up and how the waters were so clear. It truly is 'Old Florida'. It rivals many Carribean destinations and is in our backyard. No passports required!

What makes this house unique

The homes interior have been designed by us and all the renovation work was done by Dan, Dan truly loves invisioning how the house should look and have it come together. Because we live nearby and are hands on, any issues or request are handled immediately. The suites were designed with what we felt would bring the most enjoyment for our guest.

Nice affordable get away.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the North property which is located in Holmes Beach. It was a nice place in a decent location, though Palm (the street) is one of the 2 major north/south roads on the island and can get busy. As the add" kind of" states there is no washer and dryer. The only issue that I was actually disappointed in was the garage. I visit AMI a few times a year and always intentionally rent places with garages because I have a couple of very expensive kayaks that I pull on a small trailer. For security reasons I prefer to have them in a garage. Seeing the garage in the picture of the property I assumed it was available. One week prior to arrival I emailed to be sure, and I was told it was full of stuff and unavailable. Unfortunately, it was to late for me to make other arrangements.

We found the owner friendly and accommodating, but I really think since there is a picture of the property with a garage in the post, they need to specify that the garage is unavailable. I would repeat IF the garage becomes available in the future.

I cannot say enough about our experience with the owners. This place was a steal. Feet from the beach, quiet, clean, beautiful. They were so helpful and kind. My husband and I enjoyed every second. We hope to be back soon!

Great Apartment in Convenient Location!

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped and appointed home away from home.

Place was clean and comfortable.

Owner provided dishwasher soap, clean sponges, paper towels, etc. things that are so necessary and annoying to have to buy for a week away.

Danny was very responsive to any questions we had - how do we get to Netflix, where can we find a laundry, etc.

We would definitely recommend this apartment and are looking forward to our next stay.
