"We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home, again. This was our third time renting this property."

"We had the best time in this beach front home. The house was very comfortable for our family. Lots of room to spread out, but we tended to congregate on the porch overlooking the beach.
The house is as described. Three bedrooms on the upper floor. (You have to be able to walk up a full flight of stairs in order to get to the living space) Incredible views of the water from the kitchen, front room, and master bedroom. It was in a great location near stores and restaurants that you could walk to and just a short drive to all the other places on the island. There is a free trolley that you can ride that takes you from one end to the other. It really helped that there was a washer/dryer in the unit.
I looked up other rentals on the island and actually went to look to see where they were, as we are planning on returning. Based on the price and location, I couldn't find another one that offered as much as this unit, even if you removed the pet friendly filter.
Laura, the owner, was very helpful and quick to return calls and emails. When we needed another light bulb because one burned out, it was there the next morning. The refund check was sent back quickly also.
The owner let us have our dog at the house, which was great. Although, the island itself is not really dog friendly. You are not allowed to have your dog on the beach; however, we kept her on the beach right by the house and didn't have any problems. Plus, there is a beach on the causeway that you can have dogs.
One thing I didn't understand from the pictures is how you got to the beach from the house. There is a staircase that goes from the porch down the side of the house and then you walk under the porch. This is a nice area where you can be right by the water but not in the sun. Then there are three stairs to the sand. My daughter loved laying out on the beach.
The only thing I could even think of that might improve the rental is to have twins beds in one of the bedrooms. Regardless, we were 110% satisfied with our stay and are planning on returning.
Thank you, Laura."

"This house is as beautiful and peaceful as you can imagine. We would wake up each morning and sit out back watching the sunrise over the water with a cup of coffee. It was perfect!! One day we saw a group of Dolphins and one Manatee right out back! AMAZING!!!! It is so convenient to the shops and restaurants downtown. If you're looking for a relaxing, tropical getaway this is the home for you! We can't wait to go back!"

"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!"
