Our "Happy Place"
"Shirley's Place was just what we needed! This lovely beach house is comfortable, quiet and clean and just oozes peace. The view from the porch is stunning, and it's heaven to sit out there and hear the ocean waves just a few steps away. Making reservations and checking-in were simple and stress-free, just as a vacation should be. The house has everything one might need to cook meals, there are plenty of games and beach accessories(chairs, towels, umbrellas, boards, noodles) available and internet and cable tv are provided (not that you even need it with such an amazing beach outside your door). The beds were very comfortable and we all felt very at home. It was very nice to have a master bedroom and bath on one end and two other bedrooms sharing a bath at the opposite side of the house, providing privacy. The beach is just a few steps away, down a path and through the dunes. The dunes gave us the feel that we had our own private beach, and also blocked the wind on a gustier day. Shopping and restaurants are very close by, and the quiet streets make for a nice walk, if you prefer. We walked to "town" for donuts early one morning, and it took less than 10 minutes. We didn't have our bikes with us this time, which would have made it even more fun! Next time. There will be a next time at Shirley's as it will be hard to stay away for too long!"

"We thought the place looked much better than the pictures. The views of the pond were lovely from the bedrooms and living room. My father was very impressed with the quality of the HD tv and enjoyed keeping up with his favourite sports teams during our stay.
There are a number of restaurants located a short walk away, and the trolley service for everything else. You really don't need to use your car while on the island.
The local streets were charming for walks. Of course, the beach is lovely.
Floyd was very helpful when one of our party encountered medical problems during our visit and quickly provided us with a printout with 2 recommended walk-in clinics in the vicinity.
Our dog was warmly welcomed. One caution I would have for pet owners, however, is that there are a lot of sticky burrs in grass in the area (at least in October). Also, a lot of the Anna Maria Island restaurants don't allow dogs on their outdoor patios."

"Perfect place to stay, right on the beach! We have traveled the world staying in hotels, but never in a home. Having access to a fully equipped kitchen enhanced our stay ten-fold. We loved the decor and homey beach feeling. Having access to the on-site beach equipment kept us from bringing extra baggage with us. Being a pet friendly environment we were able to bring our two French Bulldogs with us. We all felt right at home. 5 minute walk to great food at the Sandbar Restaurant. Beautiful sunsets from the front porch while we sipped on wine was like icing on a delious cake. Rental price will allow us to return often! Thank you Stephanie and Mike for sharing your lovely home with our family!"
