Recent Florida South West reviews
"If you want a lovely spacious property, with south facing, always in sunshine, swimming pool, close to amenities yet so quiet that you could be in the country, this is the place!
The house has everything anyone could need for a home-from-home holiday. A major supermarket is about 3 mins away by car, so no need to plan for groceries before you arrive. If you are into shopping, there is plenty of choice, from the "Dollar" shop, through to an outlet centre 15 minutes away. We joined a gym, just down the road, so were able to offset the fabulous living with regular keep fit! Relaxing at the end of a hard day's golf or beach is easy, either by the pool or in the comfy TV room.
Hard to fault this house, we are looking to book again."

"We thought the place looked much better than the pictures. The views of the pond were lovely from the bedrooms and living room. My father was very impressed with the quality of the HD tv and enjoyed keeping up with his favourite sports teams during our stay.
There are a number of restaurants located a short walk away, and the trolley service for everything else. You really don't need to use your car while on the island.
The local streets were charming for walks. Of course, the beach is lovely.
Floyd was very helpful when one of our party encountered medical problems during our visit and quickly provided us with a printout with 2 recommended walk-in clinics in the vicinity.
Our dog was warmly welcomed. One caution I would have for pet owners, however, is that there are a lot of sticky burrs in grass in the area (at least in October). Also, a lot of the Anna Maria Island restaurants don't allow dogs on their outdoor patios."

"We stayed at this home for our summer vacation with our three children and nanny, also were visited by my parents during the stay. It is immaculate, has every amenity we wanted and was able to comfortably sleep 8+. It is our favorite rental in Florida and we will be coming back next year for vacation as well."

"What can I say? Perfect comes close! We stayed in the guest cottage which was plenty big enough for 2 (sleeps 4 with 1 bdrm and a sofa bed) and had pretty much all we needed. It was clean and well stocked and very nicely and comfortably furnished. The grounds around the house are beautifully peaceful in themselves. To get up and have that first cup of coffee lounging in that park-like setting was ideal! Then, just a matter of steps to the beach! Manasota Key has the best beaches here in SW FL. I live here and these are our favorites! Plenty of shells, sharks' teeth, and beach to explore. I very much enjoyed the walk down to Stump Pass, a state park to the south (left), and back again. In October, the water was clear and refreshing! The sunsets were simply AMAZING, with a peaceful gathering every evening closing out the day. Bring a couple of chairs and your camera! Scott does have a few beach things in the shed for use, chairs, rafts, buckets, noodles, that come in handy. The neighborhood is quiet and just off the rush of the main road. Shopping, restaurants and nightlife is just up the road. Whatever you're looking for, it's there! With a folder full of suggestions in the cottage, left by Scott and friends, you have plenty of dining to chose from. Everything from pizza to fine dining and a few tropical drinks! Scott was very accommodating and I envy him having this place of his own. I look forward to hopefully making this an annual staycation with everything this beach house vacation has to offer! Thank you Scott for sharing your piece of heaven!"
