"We had a lovely vacation at this home. It was a fabulous distance to the ocean. Great view from the living room & kitchen areas. There are a lot of steps which was fine for us, but could be problematic for others. Just keep the doors shut, Florida has a lot of bugs. Plenty of beach chairs/toys for the pool which was heated and great. Tons of kitchen supplies, everything you need, talk to Rick if you have any problems he was great. No complaints!"

"When we made our decision to visit Anna Maria Island, there were lots of nice places to stay, however, when I came across Shady Palms, reading the reviews, and dealing with Cindy, I just knew it was the right place for us .. having the house and all it's charm and amenities made it perfect, including the natural, shady back yard .. we had a great balance of cooking at home and eating out .. enjoying the beach at any given time day for night (and it is filled with treasures, shells, sand dollars, star fish, little fish at the shoreline, saw manatee and dolphin and of course the stellar sunsets) .. there is plenty of things to do close by if you choose (we visited the Mote Aquarium, explored the surrounding beaches and area, and booked an in-shore fishing trip where the boys caught more than 40 fish) .. the town is so charming with lots of great restaurants and gift shops .. I could go on, but if I could give it 10 stars, I would .. my husband and two boys (19 and 21) thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we all hope to get back ASAP! oh yes, did I say the house was the most comfortable place we ever stayed at? :) .. thank you for sharing this special place!"

First VRBO Experience and Rental at Anna Maria Island
"This being our first experience with VRBO we selected a location recommended by friends in an attempt to keep it simple. We rented this property for family time and a much needed vacation not knowing how easy this would be, and it was very easy. The property owner was extremely responsive to inquiries and ensured the property was fully ready for our stay. Everything was provided with the exception of the clothes we brought and the food we ate. The house is outstanding: clean and well maintained. The elevator is a very nice benefit and the pool was a very nice addition we did not know was there when we made our reservation. The house is a couple blocks off the beach with easy access and activities for all ages are plentiful."
