Recent Anna Maria reviews
"This has been the best house we have ever rented before. My family loved almost everything this house had to offer. My kids enjoyed swimming in the private pool, while I spent time on the gas grill. Having the garage helped store the golf cart we rented for the week, and made it easier to keep charged. The house was very clean and well organized. I thought it was a nice touch that NFL Sunday ticket was provided through the Direct TV, because I was able to still watch my favorite football team. Since the beach carts are already provided with the house, it makes the walk to the beach easier. It took us about 7 to 8 minutes to walk to the beach from the house. The owner of the house was very helpful with answering every question I had, and answered them in a timely manner as well. Anna Maria Island is a beautiful little island, and we plan on coming back to this island every year for vacation. I do not believe this house will disappoint anybody that stays here."

"We loved our week at this rental on Anna Maria Island. The home was very clean and cozy. The beds and couches were super comfy and the kitchen table was spacious. We've never stayed at a place with a private pool, but now it's a must!!! Loved looking out thru the living room and seeing the pool. The beach was only a short walk-252 steps. Owner was quick to respond to questions. Highly recommend!!!"

"Your home was beautiful and we had an amazing time there. We loved all the wildlife on the island. Every one that we encountered was very polite and willing to help. We rented a boat for a few hours down in Bradenton Beach and the guys there were very informative on how to use the boat. He told us how to get to the sandbar. Once there we were nervous about pulling it up on the sand like we were instructed and some gentleman knew we were new and instantly jumped into action and told us what to do and walked us through it. It felt like home to us. No one treated you like an outsider. Kids loved swimming in the pool when we got tired of being at the beach for most of the day. Enjoyed fishing at the Anna Maria City pier. I could go on. I loved Anna Maria Island compared to Clearwater Beach. Kids liked the activities Clearwater had at night so our plan next year is for me to get two weeks off in a row so we can spend one week in Clearwater and one at AMI. Thank you for renting your home out to us and we will hopefully be back next year. The house had everything we needed. Got home and it was back to reality and 12 hour shifts. lol John was great to work with. He answered any questions we had quickly. This is the first year we flew and the house had everything we needed. All we had to pack was necessities and got groceries at the local publix on the island. We saw plenty of starfish, sand dollars, conch, crabs, and a few stingrays while at the beach. There were dolphin visits to Anna Maria city pier nightly. Two scoops ice cream shop is across the street and everyone enjoyed getting ice cream every evening while visiting the pier. It's a quick 2 minute walk to the beach from the house and enjoyed that end of the island far better than bean point or the other beaches. I recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice quiet getaway on a beautiful island. Once again thank you so much John, and thank you for asking us how everything was and if we enjoyed our stay."

"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!"
