"We spent two weeks in Tom's wonderful home and are already planning a return trip. Tom and Jeff were both so kind and helpful to us. My husband and kids fished right off the back deck and in rented kayaks that were delivered to the house. They especially loved fishing at night under the dock light and caught hundreds of fish during our stay. The pool was very nice and clean and had a pool light that could be turned on at night so it was a great way to cool off after the beach or fishing. It was a very short walk to the beach, which was beautiful and uncrowded, and we watched amazing sunsets from the beach most evenings. The house is very comfortable and the views of the bay and the sunrise through the glass patio doors and windows and from the back porch and upstairs balcony are incredible. The kids loved playing putt putt golf in the back yard and watching the dolphins, manatees and many varieties of birds from the house. The house is in a great location, with both beach and bay access and centrally located with restaurants and shopping within 5-10 minutes in each direction. There is a large grocery store just a mile or two down the road so everything is convenient but just far enough away so that the house feels private and peaceful. There is a free trolley if you don't want to use a car. The house was very clean, very well equipped and very well stocked and Tom responded immediately when a minor repair was needed during our stay. Tom and Jeff were also very helpful in referring us to an expert fishing guide, to kayak rental places, and to lots of great restaurants and other things to do. We went out exploring during the middle of the day most days and there were enough things to see on Anna Maria Island and nearby that we were entertained for the whole two weeks with things still left on our list for our next trip back. Many thanks to Tom and Jeff for a truly wonderful vacation."

"William's home is incredible. Huge living area with pool table and great back deck with barbecue and hot tub overlooking the Bennet Flat meadow. The views from the master bedroom and bathroom are stunning as well.
We grilled food and sat out watching the sun set and then showed the kids the stars after sunset. William called me the day before we were due to check in and asked if I had any questions and ran through the climate control system for the house. Incredibly friendly owner and he went out of his way to make himself accessible. As no one was checking in after we were leaving he also allowed us a late check out permitting us to leave for him after dinner and avoid the 6 1/2 hour drive home that some of our friends had to endure by leaving late morning. We will definitely rent again."

"Cindy made our stay seamless! The house was adorable and had plenty of space. We had dinner out back every night and it was perfect. Very inviting with the creek behind the house and rope lighting along the fence. We would certainly stay here again if we are in the area. Thank you Cindy for the texts before, during and after our stay!"

"This lovely house is set in an amazing setting with views everywhere you look. The house is southwestern and nestled in a country-like charming setting with a large lawn and trees, back deck and outdoor patio. It is peaceful and beautiful. The house is well-equipped and comfortable very convenient to the park, cafes, art galleries, and the bus. It is an easy house for a family with things so close for everyone and no need for a car. We look forward to our return to this sensational setting and house."
