Excellent rental near beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a long overdue review, we stayed in Howard's home Aug 2016 and couldn't have been happier. The location was great - just a short walk to the beautiful beach. It was fully equipped with everything we needed to make our vacation and beach time spectacular. Howard was very easy to work with and everything was as he promised. I did lots of shopping around for a rental and definitely made the right decision. We hope to return later this year and will not hesitate to book this home again.

Peaceful getaway-- steps to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home that was perfect for our family getaway! The house is nicely equipped, quiet and clean. We loved being so close to the beautiful beach, where we spent the majority of our stay. Howard was a pleasure to communicate with, and we would gladly recommend his home to our family and friends. Friends told us to stay on the north tip of the island and we could not agree more--so peaceful and away from the traffic and crowds. It was an easy bike ride to area shops and restaurants (we especially enjoyed The Waterfront restaurant). We really appreciated having the bikes, beach towels and cart available for our use. The kitchen is nicely updated and had everything we needed to prepare meals (there is not a grocery store close by so be sure to stop in Holmes Beach or Bradenton on your way in). It is also a great area if you enjoy kayaking or stand up paddle boarding! We definitely hope to return to Anna Maria and stay in this wonderful home once again. Thanks for everything!

Perfect place at a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Anna Maria Island, and we could not have imagined staying at a better house! The house was equipped with absolutely everything we might need for a weeklong vacation. The house was spacious, clean, everything worked, and again it took us about 5 minutes walking distance to the most beautiful beach we have ever seen! My two teenage boys loved having the bikes to explore the area as they wanted, and the backyard has a grill that we used multiple times and certainly made eating more affordable than going out for every meal. There is an outdoor shower with hot water that came in so handy when coming back from the beach. There were beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and a stroller looking thing that we loaded up to carry our "stuff" to the beach! We will definitely book this house again when we go back to Anna Maria! Thank you Howard we had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed your house!

Exellent Rental

  • 3 of 5

Everything was perfect. Location was great, easy walk to the beach and rod and reel pier. Our son walked to the pier every night to fish. The sunsets were beautiful. Everything is in the rental that you will need for the week (chairs, cart, boards, ect.) We would highly recommend and we will definitely be back. Thanks Howard

Look no further !!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a great place to spend your vacation. Howard put in a lot of hard work to make this a home away from home and made sure you will have everything you need. It was very clean and we did not see any bugs. A few Salamanders but that was to be expected. Gas grill in the back yard with a spare tank in the garage. Full size laundry in the garage, no little apartment size appliances here. Full size refrigerator, 4 beach chairs and a pull cart to lug everything to the beach. The beach is a short walk, however when you get to the soft sand it's a workout pulling the cart the rest of the way to the beach. Bikes are a nice way of getting around for exercise and cruising to the fishing pier for breakfast.

We had a great time and you will to.
