"My husband, two small children, family dog, and I just returned from a wonderful week long stay at Front Porch. This house is beautifully decorated, meticulously cleaned and maintained and the pool area was a dream with it's gorgeous layout and landscaping. David and his wife have a great attention to detail providing a lot of "extras" to ensure that you are comfortable and have everything and more that you need for your stay. The kitchen was well stocked and the large closets and garage space provide plenty of room to keep your things put away and out of the floor. We were more than impressed with this home and it's amenities."

"This is a perfect Anna Maria Island house. It's decorated with great charm in the Old Florida beach style, but the amenities are all new and up to date (bathrooms, kitchen). The owner actually uses it herself, so there are plenty of beach toys, including 2 bikes and a beach wagon to bring your gear down to the beach. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off and the small pool is very warm and perfect for a quick dip. The internet service is fast and the TV is a nice new modern unit. We had a wonderful time here and hope to return next year."

Just as the web page depicts. Beautiful apartment on upper floor
"We stayed in the upper apartment for three weeks. We travelled all the way from the UK and were,understandably worried that it might not be quite as shown.
It exceeded our expectations. It was spotlessly clean,very spacious and well apointed.
There are two decks,back and front so there is always a sunny spot somewhere to sit outside. The beds were comfortable with plenty of extra covers if required ( we had some cool nights and they were much appreciated) It is so spacious so even if six people shared there is always somewhere quiet to sit. Plenty of information books and a small library of paperbacks etc. The kitchen has everything you could possible need, I defy anyone to find anything that has been missed. The laundry is downstairs in the garage and is shared with the downstairs accommodation. There is only one washer but two dryers. I recommend that if staying more than one week that you change laundry any day except Saturday as the cleaners are using the machines for the other unit and you could be hanging around a while(or leave the washing until after 4pm) There are plenty of chairs,umbrellas,beach paraphenailia etc. with trolleys to convey it all to the beach,which really is 100 steps away(unless you take very small steps)
The pool is small but functional. It could be crowded if both units use it at the same time. IOt would be ideal in the summer months as it provided lots of shade.
If you want breakfast out we recommend Minnies Beach Diner - they are exceptionally good.
There is the free trolley around the island so you really don't need to use the car unless you want to go back across the causeway for retail therapy."

"I spent a week at this beautiful home the fall of 2014 with my kids and grandkids. What a perfect home and location for a family with adult children as well a little ones. The owners have provided a well decorated modern home with many features you don't find in rental properties. The beach is perfect and the sunsets while we were there were breathtaking. Anna Maria has some unique local restaurants that made our evenings eventful. I can't wait to book for the fall of 2015. All in all Serenity is a bargain for its location and amenities."
