  • Fantastic property; not-so-great management company in Mike Norman Realty

    "We stayed at this beautiful beach house July 12th-19th 2014. The location of the beach house is stunning. The beaches are gorgeous. The house is just as it is pictured. We had a family of 6 at Waves Edge South with 3 bedrooms and a loft for our little girls who loved it. We give the house and location 'Excellent'. However the management company Mike Norman Realty was very disappointing and gets a 'Poor' for service and readiness. When we got to the house we read the many rules for cleanliness (which is ok by us) yet they left us nearly no supplies to keep the place clean. We had to go to the store and buy our own cleaning supplies which is not how I want to spend time on my vacation. The grill had no propane left in the tank. Mike Norman Realty has their number listed to call if you need anything. So we called to let them know the BBQ grill needs the propane refilled and they told us "Let me tell you how this works, you need to go to the hardware store and buy a tank and we will reimburse you". Again, not how I want to spend my time on my vacation especially paying high dollar for a rental, I expect it to be fully stocked. Also, there are no beach toys or accessories left to use, nor can you leave any. They have guests week after week and yet we had to buy our own boogie boards & pool noodles for the kids. We have rented lots of homes and they always have pool toys available in a storage bin. So overall a fantastic home and location. However don't expect any service from Mike Norman Realty, and if you are ok getting your own supplies, then you will love this beach house."

  • Fantastic beach vacation

    "We stayed at Mermaid's cove (6 adults, 3 children) in early May 2015 and had an absolute great time. Laura did a great job providing customized recommendations on what to do, where to eat, how to navigate the island and much more. The house is super clean inside and the pool was fantastic. Laura made sure that there was a child booster seat and pack-and-play crib for our 8 month old and my 3 and 5 year old girls loved the pink room with the toys in the closet. The neighbors house/duplex was occupied for about half our trip by the owner and his sons, and they were very friendly and inviting as well. The house was an easy 2 block walk to the beach and there was a wagon/cart to help lug chairs, umbrellas, etc back and forth. The house came with plenty of beach toys, 2 beach umbrellas, about 6-7 chairs and some odds and ends (floaties, frisbees, etc) that was really nice. Also, in the kitchen, there were leftover spices, condiments, some coffee filters and many of the things that are annoying to have to buy on vacation only to use them 2-3 times and throw out, so whether that was the previous travelers or Laura that provided them, it was really nice. There's also plenty of board games, a Nintendo Gamecube with 8-10 sports games, and some DVD movies to watch. My girls watched Anastasia about 10 times during the trip. Lastly, on e of the nicest things is that there is an electronic keypad on the door, so you dont need to mess with picking up and dropping off keys at an agency or a lockbox or anything. You show up and get in and leave when you check out. Laura sends the code a week ahead of time and it worked out great. I cant imaging why more owners dont have this installed. Nice job! Overall it was fantastic and next time we come to Anna Maria Island, we'll be back in touch with Laura to rent again."

  • Family getaway

    "We were extremely pleased with our stay. The duplex was exactly how it was depicted on the website. The island was wonderful and we found the location perfect for beach access ! We would recommend it highly ! The owner was very easy to reach ! Our only criticism would be that perhaps more living room seating is necessary."

  • Wonderful place

    "My wife and I just returned from a three week stay at this North Beach Condo. The bottom line is "what's not to like". An absolutely gorgeous setting....on the back lanai you can sit, eat, read as if you are in a tropical forest what with all the beautiful trees and foliage. Yet just a block away, across Gulf Drive is the most beautiful beach you will ever experience. The home itself is wonderfully furnished, from eating ware to beach towels to plenty of bath towels. The garage is equipped with six beach chairs, an umbrella with a nice wagon to carry them in across the street to the beach. We had glorious weather and were on the beach every day. Manytimes, we came back to soak in the wonderful swimming pool which is part of Paradise Village. Anna Maria is not the Florida that I many times disdain. It's a laid back island with no high rises. Sure the traffic can be a problem, but you have the free trolley that takes you up and down the island. Tennis courts nearby as well as a golf course. I used one tank of gas for the car for the three weeks....tells you that we were very satisfied to just hang around this part of the island. Rent some bikes for a better and close up views of everything this little paradise has to offer. Also, I have to include the great grill out back. Great for preparing the delicious varieties of fish on the island. Many kudos to the owner for providing a most wonderful vacation experience."
