Perfect for our family
Perfect for our family
Our family of 4 stayed at this condo for a week at the end of August. It was our 6th trip to Anna Maria, but the first time staying in this complex. This condo was absolutely perfect for our family. The location was great- less than a 5 minute walk to the beach (which is so important when you have 2 young kids and so much to cart to the beach!) close to shopping and restaurants, and right around the corner from Manatee Ave. when we needed to run to get something off the island. The complex has a great pool with a lot of shade, and we practically had it to ourselves the entire week. The condo itself was so spacious, clean and comfortable, and our 2 boys immediately felt at home. The condo is stocked with everything you could possibly need, from beach chairs and beach umbrellas to toiletries. You literally could just pack your clothes and you'd be set to go. We didn't get a chance to use the bikes, but maybe next time! Susanne was so wonderful to work with, and accommodating for our travel dates. You will not be disappointed!! Thank you Susanne!

We were there from the last weekend in June untill the 2nd week in July. The property is beautiful and "homey," and we had every convenience. It was a perfect size for 4 people (2 adults - 2 teens). It was only a couple of minute's walk to the beach and another minute to Manatee Public Beach that had, beach rentals, restaurant, bar, picnic tables, etc. The rooms were large and comfortable and quiet, and all linens were provided (which is not the usual case for most properties). There were TV's in all the bedrooms and a nice entertainment center in the living room. The kitchen was fully stocked and had all necessary condiments on the counter or in the refrigerator. There was no realty company to deal with for getting the key, and we weren't required to wait until 3 or 4 PM like most do. We dealt directly with the owners who were very accommadating in every respect. There is a property manager that lives next door who will handle any problems immediately, if needed, that might crop up. She came by and introduced herself and it was nice to know she was there, if needed, but she was not. Excellent restaurants are within walking distance up to a 15 minute drive. We found the best ones (for us) to be the Old Hamburg Schnitzelhaus (twice), Waterfront, Stonewood Grill (3 times), Island Gourmet, Bridge Street Bistro, the Feast, the Beach House, OMA Pizza & Italian, Sharky's Seagrill, and the Old Salty Dog (outside Sarasota). We did not like the Sandbar or Skinny's. (There will be separate reviews at travel Advisor). The owner provided many menus as well as their own recommendations and attraction guides, etc. I have nothing negative to say about the property at all. I have bad knees so the 2nd floor was a minor problem, but I knew that when we booked. We liked the location (over other places we have stayed in the past at AMI), we liked the facilities, we liked everything about the condo with the outside grill, the balcony overlooking the pool, the pool itself, the shuffleboard courts, and, especially, the interactions with the owner. We will stay here in the future with the only proviso that we would not being if we have more people coming with us than 4 or if we would want to stay at AMI longer and would have to bring our dog since the two week absence was particularly difficult on him, and the property (rightfully so) does not accept pets. This is the best Florida place we have stayed to include other trips to Panama City Beach & Siesta Key.

Every year I leave this beautiful condo and Island I find myself counting the time until I can come back again. The condo is immaculate. True pride of ownership. The condo is completely stocked with everything that you could possibly need for your vacation. The condo is located a very short distance from the beach (2 min walk) and has a beautiful, clean pool outside. I would recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a vacation with no disappointments.

HEAVEN AT THE BEACH
HEAVEN AT THE BEACH
This condo was so lovely. My son and his family loved every minute of their stay. My husband and I visited every day from down the beach and we also loved the "beachy" feel and the theme of the condo. The pool area was nice and shady at certain times in the afternoon which helped with a fair-skinned member of our family!!!!!! We found a quick little beach access that wasn't on the public beach (which was always crowded) and felt like we were on a tropical island paradise. There were dolphins every day in the ocean not far from the sandbar where the kids were swimming and also, further out, sailfish jumped out of the water twice while we were there. These are the huge, beautiful sporting fish!!! We have never seen them before in all our stays here but it was a magnificent sight. If you have small children, you do have to be careful crossing the road as it is quite busy at certain times of the day, but otherwise not a problem. Susanne has thought of everything to make your stay at her home as relaxing as possible. Excellent value and excellent home away from home. Thanks for making a family trip memorable for us. The Boyett Family

Best place at AMI!
Best place at AMI!
We have stayed at several other locations at AMI in the past and this was by far our favorite. The condo is very nicely decorated and stocked with everything we needed! It's also a great location and close to the volleyball nets, the surf shop and the ice cream parlor. I also loved being able to see the pool from our screened lanai. This is going to be our new vacation spot every year. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great vacation!

I just spent two wonderful months in Holmes Beach. This condo is perfectly appointed to suit all the needs for either a short or longer stay. Warm, inviting, fresh, clean, comfortable, well decorated without being crowded. The unit is very well stocked, plenty of fresh linens, beach towels, well equipped kitchen for cooking in or out ( the condo provides a gas grill by the pool ). Full attention has been given to any possible need to assure a very enjoyable vacation. The owners are very helpful, easy to contact, and most pleasant This is definitely a home away from home, but with lots and lots of sunshine. I am already looking forward coming back next winter.

New years on AMI
New years on AMI
We were very pleased to arrive at this pleasant very well appointed condo after 2 days of driving from Ontario. The condo has all amenities you need for a very comfortable stay, you quickly feel at home. The condo pool is heated and is rarely used by other units. The pool deck is large and quiet if you prefer to read. The local public beach has many services and is very nice. Access to the beach is across a fairly busy road which children should definitely not cross alone however. A local regular free bus service means you can leave the car parked if you choose. The local PUBLIX supermarket is a 5 minute drive. AMI has a quiet demeanor, there are several pleasant restaurants which we enjoyed.The night life is nonexistent which is fine by me. The owners of the condo are friendly and easy to deal with, transactions went well. Finally the condo is very well suited for two to four people, six people would be a little tight.

Perfect Vacation Home
Perfect Vacation Home
Bob and Suzanne's vacation home is like YOUR home away from home. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The condo is very well maintained and extremely well stocked. The furnishings are all comfortable and like new. The condo is decorated well and just makes you feel welcome. It is a very easy walk to the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria. It is gives you easy access to restaurants, stores, and groceries. The covered parking was an added benefit. One of our favorite things was eating breakfast on the screened in lanai. All in all we felt like this was the PERFECT island home!

What a great place to stay for our little get-away vacation. We loved the convenience of walking distance to the beach and closeness to shopping. Much to explore when taking the trolley up and down the coast. This condo has all the comforts of home. Kitchen is fully equiped for stay-at-home meals and all the linens necessary for a restful visit. All you need to bring is a suitcase of bathing suits and sunscreen! The owners have made this condo a cozy and beautiful place to stay. It is immaculately kept and well cared for. They have made this condo a place I will definately be staying in again!
