Our second rental with Island Dreams

  • 5 of 5

We rented from Island Dreams in August and had a wonderful experience, so when the grandkids came down we rented from them again because we trusted the properties Island Dreams represents. We were very pleased with the property once again. Both were clean, well appointed, and had adequate kitchen utensils for cooking a few meals at home. As an aside, with houses on Anna Maria Island you need to realize most are in residential neighborhoods and you need to be respectful of the 10:00 p.m. noise ordinance. You will want to check with the agent to make sure you are situated properly for your needs with the guests you have with you.

Wonderful AMI getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were down for a friend's wedding and rented the Turtle Nest for ourselves, two little ones and in laws. It worked out perfect with the beautiful heated pool and the beach right across the street. The property was very clean and nicely updated and had everything we needed. They even had a pack and play and high chair set up for us on arrival as they knew we had children with us. We look forward to another trip to Ana Maria Island soon and would definitely rent this beautiful property again!

Nice accomidations

  • 5 of 5

This house was very nice. Well equipped and nicely decorated. We didn't have any complaints. We really enjoyed working with the management company. They checked in on us, made sure we had a Pac n play and high chair. Any problems that we had they were quick to remedy. It's a bit far from the beach, but we had rented a gold cart, so it didn't bother us much. Will stay here again.

Car: recommended

Anna Maria is a comfortable beach paradise without high-rise buildings, chains of fast food restaurants or motels. The snow-white sandy beach takes 8 miles and was rated as the 4th nicest beach in USA. The island offers a plenty of restaurants, little shops and boutiques as well as a supermarket. It is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Dolphin watching, outlet shopping, water sports, golf… Everything is possible. The Island is linked with two bridges (free of charge) with the mainland, that is because you reach the next larger town Bradenton in 10 minutes, Sarasota in 30 minutes and Tampa in 1 hour. The attractions of Disney World, Kennedy Space Center and Bush-Gardens are also only 2 hours drive away. With good flight connections to Sarasota, Tampa, Orlando and Ft. Myers you can reach Anna Maria Island easily with the car.
