Totally Chill in the Heat of Summer!
"Our family of four spent five nights at Turtle Landing this past week and it was just what was needed to de-stress and reconnect. The house was spotless when we arrived and Scott had a nice bottle of red on the counter which cemented the welcoming tone. The three bedrooms provided plenty of quiet space and the open kitchen with great room was the natural gathering space. I preferred starting the day on the huge back porch from which you could easily hear the Gulf waves rolling ashore. The pool was nice -- a quick way to cool it down is to run the blower for a bit. We spent most of our days out back on the dock enjoying the calm waters which made it easy to kayak and Paddleboard. We did more fishing than catching from the dock, a nice reminder to bring a boat next time! Over the course of the stay, my HR & BP dropped significantly and I heard my kids laugh A LOT. Barbara the Golf Cart Lady not only delivered the cart but provided plenty of island insight, as did Stu the Pool Guy. I can certainly understand why they both chose to become permanent residents of Palm Island!"

"Myself and two friends stayed at this condo May 21 thru 28, 2015. It was a great vacation! The condo was nicely decorated and had everything needed to make our vacation stress free! Great locations; in the middle of the island. The beach was a little bit of a walk as other renters mentioned, but it was worth it! Can't wait to go back to Siesta Key!"

"We were lucky that the owner of this property decided not to sell and we were able to rent through February and March 2015. Having visited Rotonda for 14 years we know the area well and have both agreed that the location of this property was the best in all those years. It is quiet and while the trees at the rear give you privacy there is still enough of a view of the course to watch the golfers and listen to the amusing comments before the 'thunk' in the trees as mentioned by a previous visitor. The owner was very helpful and we certainly hope to revisit in the future."

"Your home was beautiful and we had an amazing time there. We loved all the wildlife on the island. Every one that we encountered was very polite and willing to help. We rented a boat for a few hours down in Bradenton Beach and the guys there were very informative on how to use the boat. He told us how to get to the sandbar. Once there we were nervous about pulling it up on the sand like we were instructed and some gentleman knew we were new and instantly jumped into action and told us what to do and walked us through it. It felt like home to us. No one treated you like an outsider. Kids loved swimming in the pool when we got tired of being at the beach for most of the day. Enjoyed fishing at the Anna Maria City pier. I could go on. I loved Anna Maria Island compared to Clearwater Beach. Kids liked the activities Clearwater had at night so our plan next year is for me to get two weeks off in a row so we can spend one week in Clearwater and one at AMI. Thank you for renting your home out to us and we will hopefully be back next year. The house had everything we needed. Got home and it was back to reality and 12 hour shifts. lol John was great to work with. He answered any questions we had quickly. This is the first year we flew and the house had everything we needed. All we had to pack was necessities and got groceries at the local publix on the island. We saw plenty of starfish, sand dollars, conch, crabs, and a few stingrays while at the beach. There were dolphin visits to Anna Maria city pier nightly. Two scoops ice cream shop is across the street and everyone enjoyed getting ice cream every evening while visiting the pier. It's a quick 2 minute walk to the beach from the house and enjoyed that end of the island far better than bean point or the other beaches. I recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice quiet getaway on a beautiful island. Once again thank you so much John, and thank you for asking us how everything was and if we enjoyed our stay."
