  • Lovely Get-Away

    "My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much. The house was lovely and very convenient to the beach and wonderful restaurants. Anna Maria Island is a great place for relaxation!"

    "Our stay at the Lazy Gecko was all we had expected and more. Shortly after our arrival Denny and Alice dropped by to welcome us and check that everything was satisfactory. They are a very nice couple who take great pride in their vacation rental property and show a genuine interest in ensuring that your stay is a memorable one. We found our home away from home to be very well equipped and lacked nothing that we needed. It was very clean and the decor was most pleasing. We had hours of fun and relaxation in and around the pool and enjoyed the privacy,peacefulness and serenity of the back yard. The close proximity to the beach was a real plus making it quite convenient for us to walk the beach in the mornings and view the sunsets in the evening. We will definitely be returning to the Lazy Gecko next year to enjoy more of Paradise."

  • 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."

  • Family Gathering/Daughter's 15s!

    "What a beautiful, charming, and quaint home... This owner has to be one of the nicest person we've ever rented from! His attention to detail and making the property as "homey" as possible, was very noticeable. The home was lovingly decorated, simply but very comfortably, with a wonderful playroom in the converted garage for teens and Tweens to enjoy.. The walk to the beach was a breeze. Wonderful place to stay!"
