  • Vacation Bliss

    "If you are looking for a 3 bedroom house in a great location with amazing views and uncrowded beaches this is it! Your own private beach on the bay to watch the sunrises, shorebirds and dolphins literally at your back door. Sunsets, gulf beaches and surf just a short walk and two fishing piers within a five minute walk. The house has been updated and is well furnished and decorated. The master bedroom is up a spiral staircase so if you have mobility issues it may be a problem, otherwise the master suite is great! The downstairs bedrooms are small but well suited for children. The kitchen had everything we needed but lacks counter space. There is a great laundry room with 2 dryers and a fish cleaning station. Overall this house is a great value with an unbeatable location. We will be back."

  • Little Piece of Heaven

    "We would highly recommend this vacation home to others. Our family of five (three teenage daughters) were very comfortable staying in this home. It has a roomy floor plan and accomodates everyone for movie watching, relaxing and meals. The kitchen has all of the comforts and ammenities of home. The pool is absolutely amazing! This home is located in the heart of it all. Conveniently located close to the quaint shops on Pine Street and the amazing donut shop located there. Maria and her children were a joy to meet and offered great advice for restaurants and tourist stops. We plan to stay again next year!"

  • A True Paradise

    "This house and owners were perfect! My husband, two sons, one daughter, and dog stayed for a full week and had one of the best vacations of our life. The environment in Anna Maria Island is incredibly peaceful and relaxing, and staying at this house was just what we needed. The house is very large, well furnished, and uniquely decorated. The common areas-kitchen, living room, balcony, and dining room- have the best ocean front view and allowed our family to be connected throughout the entire day. The house is well equipped with more than enough towels, toiletries, and kitchen utensils/plates for a large family. The house is right on the beach and the pictures on the website do a fine job of showing the beauty of the house and its surroundings. The view of the ocean from the many windows on the house is just breathtaking! Early mornings were greeted with the calm ocean and unforgettable sunrise. Dolphins were seen numerous times throughout the day making their way across the ocean. Sunsets made perfect hues of reds and orange streaks on the gorgeous sky. The house is a short walk from the Anna Maria City Pier which has a local restaurant on the end. It is also where the free city trolley stops. This area also has cute boutiques and small shops/restaurants to definitely try! Our family was a fan of the Two Scoops ice cream shop! We also loved having Beach Bums nearby (a place to rent equipment for entertainment). We tried the cruiser bikes one day and had a nice ride around the island. My son and daughter also had a blast when we rented the single kayaks for the ocean and they were able to ride for a while and make stops at the house for food and drinks to replenish their energy. We have made several summer trips to the Gulf coast on different cities, but staying at this house on Anna Maria Island surely tops our list by a wide margin. We can’t wait to come here again! We highly recommend this place as anyone will fall in love the same way my family and I did!"

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Anna Maria Island

    "Our group of four familes (seven adults and seven children ages 6 to 14) thoroughly enjoyed our week on Anna Maria Island. Matt met us upon arrival, showed us how to operate the spa heater and pool cirulation system, and then gave us a great introductory tour with the boat (both to get to know the boat as well as the lay of the intercoastal waterway, the bay and the ocean). The boat may have been the highlight of trip; we enjoyed getting out to remote sandbars, anchoring off the beach, and at least one of us was almost too close for comfort with a manatee. The beach was a comfortable distance from the house, and the proximity to the house to Publix, the marina and City Pier was great. The house itself was quiet, great for relaxing (by the pool, on the screened-in porch, or in the living room), plenty of space for our group. It was also comfortable for cooking and in-home dining; we ate all our meals at the house except for the day we ventured to St. Petersburg, and the two times we at The Waterfront Restaurant (which I cannot recommend enough; do try the shrimp and grits). As a previous reviewer noted, the condition of the house is a little worn, but when you are traveling with children and all that you want to do is relax, sometimes it's a good thing not having to worry what a child may have inadvertently broken or knocked over. But other than a bicycle crash or two, our stay was without incident. We ended our stay as one big group watching The Secret Life of Walter Middy on the big-screen TV; what a great way to end a vacation. Final item - around a half an hour into our drive home, my youngest realized that she had forgotten her blanket at the house. Matt was kind enough to mail this back to us and I am very greatful for this kind jesture."
