Recent Anna Maria reviews

  • Paradise Found!

    "We (my family of 6) just returned from a fabulous stay at the "Tipsy Turtle" on Anna Maria Island. The house was spacious, very clean and well stocked (including Band-Aids and Advil etc.) The house had everything plenty of towels, huge beach towels, hair dryer, bikes, beach chairs, beach toys and beach wagon. The beach is a short walk away from the house. Shopping and restaurants are a short walk away and easily accessible by bike. We only used our vehicle to go to Publix to get groceries. I highly recommend riding the bikes to City Pier to watch the sun rise (spectacular!) and walk to the beach at night to watch the sun set - when we saw many dolphins playing just off shore. Most afternoons were spent lounging by the pool and finishing off the dock in the back yard. Every time we fished, the resident blue heron we named "Frank" came and, if we were lucky enough, we fed him a fish that we caught. We also a manatee and sting ray in the canal. Anna Maria Island is our new favourite vacation spot and we will definitely stay at the Tipsy Turtle again. In looking around at the many other vacation rental on the island, I believe Tipsy Turtle has the best location and is the most tropical house you will find on the island - it truly is worth of 5 stars!!! A few "must-do's": have lunch at Skinny's and breakfast at Ginny and Jane E's - you won't be disappointed. Thank you Nedra for sharing your house with us and making this one of our best vacations ever!"

  • This is a special place

    "This special house is located perfectly away from the hustle and bustle, but at the same time everything is easily accessible. The beautiful beach is just a short stroll, and allowed us to soak up the sun during the day and take in the world class sunsets at night. We rented kayaks and bikes from Beach Bums on Pine avenue and they delivered the equipment to the house - couldn't have been any easier. We were able to take the Kayaks from the backyard canal and row to the bay waters and caught several species of fish. The home was super comfortable - the pool was great - we used the grill for Kabobs, burgers, and chicken georges. The kitchen offered everything. The owner/manager was super organized and made our stay easy. We were there for a 50th Birthday and arranged a special birthday greeting - very classy - We'll be back!"

  • An Amazing Rental

    "We have stayed at Tarpon Tree House twice within the last 6 months which, in itself, says a lot. We are discerning holidaymakers and for the last few years have stayed in beachfront properties on Anna Maria. We were surprised at just how much we love Tarpon Tree House. The location at the North end of the island is excellent - wonderfully quiet and yet within walking distance of a few shops and restaurants. It is also within easy walking distance of the beach and both the Rod and Reel and City Pier. The house itself is spotlessly clean and both luxurious and comfortable with lots of "extras" and the outside space is something else! The garden is very cleverly secluded, with lots of separate areas for relaxing and watching the wildlife. You can choose from various conventional garden seats, a sturdy bench or rocking chairs overlooking the water or even a hammock! This truly is a blissful, special place where we felt we could really relax and get away from our busy daily lives. Highly recommended. We will be back!"

  • Great house and vacation

    "Had a wonderful time at Shirley's Way. Weather was fabulous and views were awesome. Had a fire at the beach fire pit one evening under the stars. Home was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed in the kitchen. Sat on the deck for hours - amazing sunsets. Beautiful walks on the beach. Location was fabulous - very quiet and away from busy areas. Great local nearby restaurants. Hope to come back again."
