** If you would like to have your pool heated, we kindly ask that you please contact AMV at least 10 days prior to your arrival so that it ensures us ample time to fulfill your request. We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools and pool equipment are closely monitored by the pool company for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with- most of the systems are locked for this reason. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs (some properties have a spa, some have a hot tub). Generally speaking, our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, please be aware that even in Central Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down into the 30's for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to draw down to in the 70's and a pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool back to 82, which may take several days depending on the severity of the cold spell. Ultimately, these situations are beyond our control. Other issues such as severe weather conditions, equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes or other items do happen for time to time. Please be aware that AMV cannot issue refunds during your stay based on acts of God. However, please know that in the rare event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, AMV will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we certainly want you to enjoy your heated pool and Florida sunshine to the fullest extent possible! Anna Maria Vacations thanks you in advance for your understanding on this issue.

Great beach house, in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great vacation at this beach house. The unit is all updated, appliances and interior and extremely nice inside. The pool was great, and the kids spent plenty of time swimming in it. We had two families there. A total of 4 adults and 6 kids, and there was plenty of room. I only have a few issues with the property, and for the price, it is very nice. Only a few issues that should be noted, that has me put this at a four. For as many as it sleeps, it only has two bathrooms. So that can be a little challenging at times. Also, the master bedroom and bath are extremely nice, but if you have two couple, there is a dramatic swing from the master to the next. The only other room setup for a couple was located at the front of the hall. Apparently, the noise carried into the room tremendously, so the couple in that room had a very hard time sleeping. Lastly, we had some issues with the power. A couple times we had the power flux and a breaker pop. This caused our internet to go out on day 2. They were having issues getting us someone to fix it, so eventually, we just fixed it ourselves, As far as I know there was no follow-up on the maintenance. All in all though, it was a great stay, and a very nice house. With a few changes though, it could easily be much more accommodating.

A beautiful house in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent stay on Anna Maria Island in the Whispering Whale retreat. The house is decorated in a perfectly beachy way. Everything, including the kitchen and bathrooms were very high end. The location is wonderful, as we could easily walk to either side of the island and visit the beaches. Close to great restaurants and shops. Perfect for 2 families of 4 (plus extra room beyond that!). Our only suggestion would be to improve the stock items in the kitchen. Kitchen could benefit from tea towels to dry dishes, a 9x13 pan, sponge to wash dishes, garbage bags, and other small items, like cooking oil, basic spices, plastic wrap, and ziplock bags. We made do, but if we had known in advance that these items were not there, we would have brought them ourselves. Overall, highly recommend the house and would definitely rent again.
