"We took a family of six to Anna Maria Island. The Lazy Gecko easily and comfortably accommodated all of us. We loved our time at the Lazy Gecko the home was very clean and nice and had everything that we needed during the stay. We loved having our own pool and private outside area to cook and hang out. The home was also close to the beautiful beaches. We can't wait to be able to go back again."

"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."

"We just returned from vacation to this location and it was amazing. We would definitely return. We have two children and the set up was perfect. They each had their own room for personal space. The walk to the beach is about 5 minutes. It was easy to pull the wagon ( which was provided) and spend the day. The beach was never too crowded. We easily found a place even arriving at 11:00. We walked back daily for lunch, and it was easy because we left our main stuff on he beach with no problems. There is also a hose connected in the front of the townhouse front so we could effortlessly rinse off our feet before going in, and there is a full shower in the back for the super sandy kids. The lanai was perfect; we ate every meal there. What's not to like? It's screened in and has two fans! We did also use the pool a few times and it's about a 3 minute walk or less and was never busy. We also used the trolley so we didn't have to drive everywhere which the kids loved. (I think next time we will rent a golf cart.) The stop was very close to us, right by the beach access. We ate at several local restaurants and it was all amazing. Last point, the owners were fabulous to work with and beyond helpful! I highly recommend staying here."

"We were absolutely amazed at this place! We were a family of 6, with 2 adults and 4 kids. The house is beautifully decorated, with televisions in each room, allowing everyone their own space.The pool area is like a resort with beautiful landscaping, a grill, and tv. While swimming, you can look into the canal and watch manatees playing. The house was one of the cleanest homes we have stayed in. The kitchen had every pot, pan, or utensil you could possibly need for cooking. We cooked every meal, and enjoyed the beautiful view with the decks overlooking the canal.The beach was a very short walk from the house. There are beach chairs, and a nice wagon for toting things. The house is also very close to a grocery store. We were lucky enough to have a manatee swim up and play one evening while on the dock fishing! We will definitely be coming back again!"
