"We have been to the island on many occasions and usually rent a beach front home. This time we decided to try something different and rented this canal house and boat for 2 weeks. We had a great experience. The house is perfect for large groups and our teenagers loved having their own space downstairs. The kitchen was well stocked and the furniture was comfortable. The home is in a great location - a short walk to the beach and close to several trolley stops. Matt was there to meet us when we arrived and showed us around. He was also very responsive during our stay and actually contacted us to make sure everything was ok and to check if the pool needed to be cleaned after a storm (it did and he was out right away). The pool was great after days spent on the boat and was shaded during the afternoons. We used the boat nearly every day during our stay and all decided we loved staying on a canal with a boat. There are many great sandbars and lunch places along the intercoastal waterway that we discovered (FYI the sandbar off the northern tip of the island is "clothing optional" however families congregate near the south end. There is also a great sandbar just north of the Longboat passage near Jewfish Key). We highly recommend the grouper sandwich at Annie's bait shop just north of the Cortez bridge! We had a wonderful vacation and would definitely rent this house (and boat) again."

Great house, great owners, great beach/location make a GREAT vacation
"This house was great. The owners really have thought of everything. 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, TVs is every bedroom, outside faucets/showers, game room, pool and patio furniture around the pool. The house also had lots of beach chairs, bikes, beach wagons, beach toys, umbrellas, boogie boards, cooler, kids float rings, pool toys, baby gates, high chair and plenty of other items that make your stay enjoyable. The location was great. Short walk to beautiful stretch of beach. Quick bike ride to great local food places and quaint shopping areas. The screened in porch off kitchen was great for post dinner relaxing. This part of the island is very community oriented and makes for quiet, relaxing stay. Little car traffic, lots of walkers/bike riders, very laid back and peaceful. The owners were also great, very responsive, and accommodating. Booking was a great experience for this first time vrbo user. We can't wait to go back to AMI, we miss the gulf water and the local donut shoppe (amazing donuts)."

"We stayed during one of the wettest weeks in Florida history, and still had a blast. We were an extended family of 11 ranging from 6 years old to 71. The house was perfect and had everything we needed. The kids loved the pool and would disappear for hours into the game room. We all also loved the gathering room for card games and meals and just hanging out. The dining room table was big enough for us all to eat together. The location is absolutely perfect - short walk to the best beach, less than a block from wonderful restaurants and an ice cream shop. The garage was big enough for our car and all 11 bicycles that we had fun riding to the Rod and Reel pier. This is a perfect house with plenty of space for everyone and a great family time."

"We arrived and found a spotless, beautifully decorated home. The sound of the water from the bedroom and the living area set the tone that we were searching for. The escape was accomplished! Away from all the stress, we were on the beach in seconds. The sunsets were breath taking, even for Californians. Booked a fishing trip caught Red Grouper, Amberjack and a variety of fish. Capt.Mike best skipper. The home had all the amenities. High end appliances, everything worked great. Entertained friends; felt comfortable having them over. This condo for the price is a steal. We have paid twice as much for half the quality. Just wish we could have stayed longer....
The owner was friendly and helpful. Thanks Sharon, We will be back!"
