Great Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, super clean house that went above and beyond our expectations for a family vacation on AMI. The two downstairs bedrooms and upstairs lofted space were comfortable for our extended family and also provided space for a 'work from home' office area. With the park and beach across the street and the beautifully landscaped yard with pool, we barely touched our car during our two week stay. Barbara was very direct and easy to work with - we hope to visit this property again!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Over the Bay property was by far the highlght of our trip to Florida. Having decided to go to Anna Maria Island we found this place just by chance and would definitely recommend it to others. Thanks to its location on the island it allows to join sunrise in the morning at the beach in front of the house and sunset while walking the beach arround the northern edge in the evening. Everything was perfect, communication and local service were excellent, so were 2scoones ice-cream and breakfast at RR-Pier.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house. Perfect location overlooking the bay and between both piers. Although there is a street in front, there wasn't a lot of traffic. The pool was a perfect size for our family, very private and nice landscaping with palm and coconut trees surrounding it. We even swam in it during tropical storm Colin. My mother is elderly and can't do a lot of walking, so the front porch was perfect for her. She enjoyed the view of the bay and seeing dolphins and the different types of birds. We had a wonderful time at Over the Bay and hope to stay there again in the future.

Excellent vacation - again!

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed our 4th stay at “Over the Bay” in the last 3 years. We have also stayed at 2 other houses in Anna Maria when it was unavailable but keep coming back. The house is in a perfect location across the road from the bay-side beach. It’s just a short walk to several excellent restaurants, especially The Waterfront; the best on Anna Maria in our opinion and also according to Trip Advisor.

We thoroughly enjoyed the heated pool and the secluded backyard has both sun and shade areas at all times of the day. We loved sitting on the covered front deck every evening drinking wine while listening to the waves breaking on the beach and looking across to the lights on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. It is also just a short walk to Bean Point to watch the sunset which we do several times during each visit.

Barb has always been very responsive to all communications, including the few occasions we needed to contact her during our vacations. The house is well equipped, clean and comfortable and we keep coming back!

Dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the property, and I cannot say enough good things about our stay! First of the all, the owners are awesome to work with...very professional, responsive, and accommodating! Their home in Anna Maria feels like "home" the second you walk in. Sleeping arrangements are more than comfortable. But let's get to the best parts: 1) Location - overlooking the bay with a great porch out front, ice cream and restaurants near by, and any necessities like bike rentals from beach bums and the general store also just a short walk away. 2) The Pool - my son was literally in the pool every morning and every night, there is plenty of seating outside and is a very private backyard. 3) You are in Anna Maria - how can you lose!? Best vacation for our family...we will be coming back for years to come! Thank you Barb!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Lindsay for your great review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed everything and took advantage of all there is to see in beautiful Anna Maria and that you enjoyed yourselves so much in our home. The location, the pool and the beach right across the road are features that keep bringing our return customers back! Hope we'll see you again in the future. All the best , Barb

Over the Bay was a beautiful and comfortable home. It was very comfortable for the 4 adults staying here [women] with 2 full bathrooms. We enjoyed our coffee/tea every morning on the spacious 2nd floor deck. The kitchen is more than adequate for cooking, with an outdoor grill by the pool. The pool is lovely and we enjoyed it during our stay in September, 2015. The location was perfect with a beautiful view of the Tampa Bay. We rented bikes [nearby], and rode all over the island. You can also take a bus [free], that will transport you all over the island. There are restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Barb was very pleasant to communicate with and very prompt in her responses. Thank you again Barb and Karel for sharing your "little piece of paradise."
