A great place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house in the perfect location on Anna Maria Island. This was our first trip here and the house was awesome. We had everything we needed inside and out. The pool was perfect after hanging on the beach all day. There is a shower on the dock to rinse off the sand before heading into the pool. Very comfortable beds for everyone who stayed. The beach is 3 blocks away but we found that if we drove 10 minutes south, we arrived at Coquina Beach (right after Cortez Beach). It was a beautiful beach with showers, bathrooms, and concessions. Don't forget to see the sunset every night. There is no way to describe that beauty.

The homeowners were so nice and easy to deal with. They answered all my questions fast and wanted to ensure we had the perfect vacation. We were sad when our week was up. There are also so many great restaurants and bars chain restaurants. We ate at the Freckled Fin, The Waterside Restaurant, and Harry's Grill. Every meal was great. Check out the Donut Experience for made to order donuts that were fantastic.

When you book your vacation here, you won't regret it. The only negative I can say was there were only 2 beach chairs and 6 of us but there are places you can rent or buy some. Despite that, it was awesome and we hope to come back again. Will definitely re-book this house!! Thanks for helping us make great memories!!!

Stunning home on a beautiful island

  • 4 of 5

This was a gorgeous house both in its design, layout and decoration. The property was just as described and listed. The owners were a delight to organise our stay with. They were most helpful and gave speedy responses. We loved the fact that its location was on a quiet street and enjoyed balmy evenings out back by the canal. If looking for a place to stay on Anna Maria, don't hesitate to consider this property.

Just right

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home with all the home amenities. Upon our arrival, home was spotless and smelled even better. Kitchen is well equipped for home cooking but a bevy of restaurants are also at your disposal on the island. Pool was sparkling and the perfect temp with the solar heat on. Pool toys were available as well as kayaks and bikes - nice bonuses. The house is situated well for the boat/fish enthusiast as it's almost a straight shot from the canal to the gulf and Tampa Bay. House was also equipped with a new and functional boat lift - a real plus not found on many rentals. Beach is a few blocks away and uncrowded. Owners were readily available if needed and a pleasure to do business with. You cant go wrong staying here.

What a surprise!

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to see the pictures on the site were exactly what we found.

Screened pool was a plus, children loved swimming while we enjoyed cooking in both the kitchen, well equiped, and on the Bar B Q.

Had dinner at the Waterfront restaurant one evening. Great calamari appetizer and fresh fish. We also ordered a lovely crème brûlée to share. Sunsets at the Sandbar were super enjoyable. However the best was the feeling of relaxation we felt as soon as we walked in the house. Perfect holiday home.

Winter Haven Fl.

The best so far.

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth VRBO Vacation on Anna Maria Island. It was also the most comfortable and relaxing.

The home was everything we imagined it to be from the pictures on the listing. In addition the owners were gracious and the most accommodating of all the VRBO contacts we have had. How quiet 74th street is - Napping in the hammock under the trees was unusual but very nice... Also there is provided everything one needs to have a fun filled beach experience. The beach side is nice but we prefer the City Recreation area between The Rod & Reel Pier and the City Pier. There is Sun / Shade / good fishing / not as crowded & it’s close to everything. We enjoyed eating at the restaurants so much I gained four lbs. This one is a keeper.
