"What an amazing tropical oasis in the middle of beautiful Anna Maria Island! This newly renovated cottage was absolutely what the 'doctor ordered'. Relaxing in the palm trees and refreshing pool, island music playing and only 30 steps from the beach and best sunsets in Florida makes this the Best Buy in Holmes Beach! The amenities are so helpful from an awesome Webber gas grill to beach towels and everything you need to enjoy the beach. All that is needed is food from the store and you have the makings of a home away from home! The only thing better was Lauren...who is the most attentive and wonderful property owner/manager I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Go to Sunrise or Sunset cottage any time you visit the island. You will not be disappointed."

"Our visit to Front Porch allowed us to enjoy this comfy little beach get away. We happened to take our own bicycles because we ride distance regularly. We rode our bicycles around this cute little town everyday for dining, shopping or site seeing. It was so delightful and the weather happened to be great also. It was low season which I am sure made a difference. We enjoyed the private pool at the house when we were not on the beach. The beach was so beautiful! We had our coffee out on the lanai in the mornings - sweet (and the fan helped)! There was a problem that really should have been dealt with prior to our stay. The sliding glass door to the side porch did not lock, the bar in the track was 4 inches to short allowing the door to open slightly, and the vertical blind was missing some blinds causing a privacy issue and the blind did not open or close without me putting my hand on the track to move it. I notified the owner of this issue and let them know that when I rented at full price I did not expect to have these issues. The daughter emailed to apologize. The mother called me to ask if I would get the repair man's info out of a drawer for her (which I did) but I also stated that I was not interested in staying there to wait on the repairman. As far as restaurants: we loved lunch at the Sandbar, dinner at Waterway, shopping and cinnamon rolls at Ginny & Jane E's, Ice cream at Two Scoops and drinks and appetizers at the City Pier to name a few! We did some shopping on the way in at Publix, but then had to enjoy the cute little General Store too. Be sure to check out the shops!! We can't wait to return to Ana Maria Island - it is a great place to celebrate anything or just get some R & R!!!!! I was surprised that it took two weeks for our deposit to be returned..."

"This is a lovely beachfront home with comfortable, clean furnishings. The location and views can't be beat! We loved spending the day at the beach or on the deck, walking to a restaurant for dinner or sightseeing and then returning just in time to watch stunning sunsets! The island has a free trolley for exploring so having a car isn't necessary. Thank you Tom and Bonnie for a most enjoyable week!"
