Love the location of this house
Love the location of this house
We were a family of 13 staying in the house. The house location is terrific, it's quiet, and within walking distance to wonderful restaurants, bars, and shops. The house is very big, the bedrooms are a nice size. The house was all around comfortable and big enough for our family. Dennis, who cares for the property is accommodating with any issues you might have. The only negatives we have about the property are that the back yard is very small for the size of the house. We made it work, but were a little surprised at how small it was. The mattresses in all rooms really needed to be replaced. The first night no one really slept as we were getting used to the lumps and bumps. But after our backs adjusted it was okay. As another reviewer noted, there is the crankiest individual living behind this house. He apparently wants to ban any large house that can be rented by extended family; so he puts in a noise complaint once your party arrives. Overall we were happy and would return.

We had a family vacation here. The home is beautiful. Everyone had their own bedroom with full bathroom which was very nice. We really enjoyed grilling out and using the pool. The pool is beautiful. The neighbor called in a noise complaint the first afternoon (2:30pm) that we were there. My kids 9,7,5 were in the pool. Be warned he does this with renters of the home. The home has a lot of stairs which wasn't bad for us but the grandparents had a hard time. Other than that this house is very well equiped for bigger groups. Very beautifuly decorated!

We stayed at this house Feb 16-23 with a total of 7 adults. The house was very spacious and very well stocked with everything we needed. Dennis was even willing to bring us a cooler to use for the stay. I would highly recommend this house to others. We did discover that the neighbors don't like much noise after 10pm, oops!

A GREAT WEEK
A GREAT WEEK
We just spent one week at this fabulous house and what a great time we had. Beautiful home, everything you need. Wonderful salt water pool. Outstanding kitchen for gathering around a large table. Bedrooms were large with their own ensuites. The location to the beach could not have been better!! Literally a 5 minute walk and you will be on one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. One of the things we really enjoyed, was being able to walk down to the Rod & Reel Pier for some great food. Make sure you don't miss the fish and chips on a friday nite right on the dock with a glass of vino. The entire island is not spoiled by commercialism. Very quaint and the restaurants right on the beach, literally your chair on the beach (the Sand Bar) you will love. In closing, had a great time at a beautiful home and want to Thank Dennis for keeping in touch to make sure we were ok. Would highly recommend this property and will definately be going back soon.

This house was fantastic! It was the ideal beach house rental! We had 11 people staying at the house for our entire week stay and it never felt crowded--even with 5 teenagers. The bedrooms were spacious and the house was gorgeous. Everything was clean and well maintained. And it was a short walk to the beach, which we did daily. It was all beyond what we expected. Would HIGHLY recommend a stay here! Dennis was great to work with and readily available if needed. Best vacation ever!

Perfect vacation choice
Perfect vacation choice
Three generations of our family enjoyed a week in this beautiful home. We all made full use of the lovely pool and spa, and kept the game room lively with ping-pong and pool challenges. We used the vacant lot next door for bocce and other outdoor games and, of course, frequently enjoyed the nearby white-sand beaches. Sundown found us on the roof deck taking in the view of gulf and bay. The house is thoughtfully designed and built to high quality standards. It is exactly as described except that the downstairs office is currently furnished as a 6th bedroom, which was perfect for us. It is very well equipped and generously supplied with linens.It even had extras like kitchen staples, beach towels, and sand toys. The property manager provided us with helpful suggestions for restaurants and promptly took care of a couple of concerns we had. Anna Maria is a lovely place, and we definitely recommend this beautiful home.

This home on Anna Maria Island is awesome! We have rented many beach homes in the past - and this house ranks at the top of the list. Home is new and very well maintained, it was super clean, well stocked, plenty of room for a large crowd, terrific amenities including tranquil pool area. Beautifully decorated – totally relaxed and comfortable! Quiet residential area - Great location - walk to the beach or fishing pier, close to restaurants and shops. A perfect get away! Would recommend this property to anyone and would love to stay there again!
