Beautiful property with so much to offer .

  • 5 of 5

Superbly presented property, in great condition, location and has everything that you would need. We even had an added bonus of a Heron that appeared to believe that it was a pet dog. Super stay and comes very highly recommended.

The only way I can describe our stay in the Mediterranean Canal Retreat is paradise! It was everything that we hoped it would be and nothing disappointed. There was everything needed for a comfortable and relaxing holiday.

We were particularly blown away with the outdoors. The pool was perfect as it always had both sun and shade, depending on your preference and deck meant that we were able to enjoy watching the local wildlife. The deck was a perfect place to fish and very successful spot! We also had many manatees swimming past!! This we were never bored of! the deck was ideal for either taking out the kayaks and we also hired a speedboat for a few days which moored perfectly and was easily accessible to the sea through the bayou. We had the extra bonus of kayaks, Canadian Canoebikes and some basic fishing equipment for use within the property.

The living and dining area was perfect for a large group and we particularly enjoyed the sunny deck for relaxing and dining too! Each morning, you could relax with a coffee and watch the sun rise over the bayou and trees! It was also the perfect place to enjoy late evening, listening to the sights and sounds and we loved watching the lightning moving across the bay.

We were a party of 8 with 2 families travelling together. The whole layout of the house lended itself perfectly to this. A king size room and twin room were located on either side of the house along with a bathroom for each family. This suited us perfectly! At no point was it too small and there was always space to relax.

It was clean, tidy and well maintained. All facilities were of a high standard and it had a particularly good wifi signal.

As all of the main living areas are on the first floor, guests with limited mobility may find the stairs too difficult to manage but for us this was never an issue. The only possible way the property could be improved is by the addition of a pool level bathroom and a fridge/ BBQ prep area but this was only because it was so relaxing enjoying the sun that it was difficult to motivate yourself to move to the 1st floor!!

Anna Maria is complete paradise and when we return in the future, we would definitely love to stay in this gorgeous house and location again! Thanks so much, from the The Adairs & The Hendersons (Belfast, Northern Ireland)

SATO gets an A+ on the Mediterrean Canal Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely experience on the north end of AMI! Check in was on time (3PM), quick and easy and with a gift shell bag with starter kitchen soap, DW soap, laundry detergent and a sponge- thank you! The condo was immaculate. The 4 BR, 2 BR included kayaks, a ping pong table, an extra dryer downstairs to dry towels, a lovely pool and dock. There were plenty of fishing rods and beach toys. Everything in the kitchen was labeled so easy to find. The upstairs porch had a great view and we saw plenty of birds. The condo had a nice gathering area for visiting and plenty of seating. upstairs and by the pool. The condo was a few easy blocks to the beach access and we rented a golf cart for the week that made it easy to get to restaurants. We loved the Ugly Grouper with grandchildren and the donut shop on Pine plus great meals at the Sandbar, Beach House and Rod n Reel Pier. Thanks for a great experience!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We visited AMI for a week in late May and had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the pool daily and grilled out several times. There was an abundant supply of beach towels and some beach toys that had seem some use but still fun. Easy walk to the North end (best end) of the beach too. The screened in porch is great for family dinners or just relaxing. Some might find the elevated house cumbersome as the grilling and pool area are on the ground level while the rest of the house is one floor up.

I would suggest an investment in the property interior. The furniture is older and the kitchen, while fully functional, lacks modern finishes that are typical in houses we have rented in the past.

Overall a great stay!
