We really enjoyed this condo!
We stayed in this condo the first week of April 2018, and really enjoyed it. The pool was perfect for the kids - warm water, hidden fountains and a few pool toys for them to play with. The condo was the perfect distance from the beach, the walk was very short. The wagon and beach chairs that are kept at the condo were so handy!
I'm trying to think of a "negative" for our stay - and I really can't!
Two week, two couple stay
That stage in our life where we can take longer than a week to enjoy Florida. First visit to Anna Maria/Holmes Beach and we were not disappointed! In our 60's and often travel with good friends so there was four of us adults. Property owner Lauren was amazingly responsive and helpful. This 3 bedroom property was exactly what we wanted and hoping for. All the comforts of home, comfortable beds, high ceilings, great bathrooms, perfect pool and the location is GREAT (and quiet)! Very short walk to beautiful beach. Walking distance to great restaurants (highly recommend The Feast), ice cream shop, liquor store, coffee and breakfast shops. Publix is a short 10 minute drive away. One hour from airport. No high rise hotels which gives a great home town feel. Two large pool side umbrellas and several very nice and comfortable regular and lounge chairs. Beautiful palm trees and other vegetation surrounding the pool giving this a very private feeling. Thank you again, Lauren...can't wait to come back!
House was as shown in the pictures. Plenty of room for our 5 adults. Loved the pool and patio.
We had a great time! Appreciated the restaurant list from the owner. High quality place-- hope to stay again. Would like additional towel bars in the bathrooms. Highly recommend this place.
We spent 2 wonderful weeks in Lauren's beautiful home. Everything was exactly as pictured and more. We were 2 couples, and each couple had their own private suite. So nice to just retreat to your own space when the need arises. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook a meal. (minus the food of course) There were condiments, some spices, kitchen trash bags, dish detergent, etc. Before you grocery shop, check the cupboards for anything that might be leftover from the precious tenants. Hard to pack food when you're flying home so we ended up leaving quite a bit.
The outside area was perfect, from the 'just the right size heated pool', to the different seating areas, the wonderful soothing sound of the waterfall, and complete privacy from the rest of the world. In fact, since I'm the one who made the arrangements, I knew about the other attached house, but if no one tells you about it, you'd never know there was another house on the other side of the fence. The walls of the house, and surrounding the house are soundproof, because all we ever heard was a little bit of traffic, and occasionally someone walking by while we happened to be outside. However, there is so much lush, green vegetation surrounding the entire property, in addition to the high fence, that there is no way anyone could possibly see into the yard.
The restaurants, oh my, the restaurants. We didn't have one bad meal. Lauren has a bunch of flyers, and loads of information on many of the restaurants and shops in the area, and we certainly took advantage.
We also rented a golf cart from a rental place right around the corner, and it was great. Parking was easy, great on gas, and much less expensive than renting a car for 2 weeks. Besides the golf cart, there is the trolley one block away, and all of the drivers were always so friendly and never hesitated to talk to us and help get where we were going. Last but not least there is the beach, entrance next to the trolley stop. Nothing like it, absolutely incredible!
Would we come back? Absolutely. Was this the best place we've ever rented? Without a doubt. Is Lauren the best Landlady ever? You betcha! Don't even hesitate - if you're thinking of making a reservation in the future, do it now. We made ours 11 months ahead of time, to make sure we were able to get the dates we wanted.
Thank you Lauren for opening your beautiful home to us. We'll never forget this vacation!
EXACTLY AS PICTURED
This is a property that should always be given a high priority of places to stay on Anna Maria Island. The property owner is a first class lady who was always easy to reach and responsive right from the very beginning. The home, and property, and all that went with it was very well maintained. Lots of extras such as beach chairs, grille, out door shower, water wall, beautiful pool , a comfy 83 degrees, and very clean. Lauren even went to bat for us at the beginning when VRBO screwed up and double billed our account. The location was ideally located for access to the beach . The bedrooms and baths are all very well done and very comfortable beds.
we loved the decor and the outdoor amenities. We liked the waterfall and table.
We enjoyed staying in this clean, well equipped home. Because we had great weather, we enjoyed grilling and eating outside by the waterfall. We found the area easy walking distance to a couple good restaurants. We could walk to the beach, which was across the street. Our guests were happy with the pool and the property. We were quite content to stay in and enjoy our surroundings
Walk 150 yards and your toes are in the Gulf of Mexico... This cottage is so centrally located that it is within 200 yards of the Gulf of Mexico, restaurants, shopping, art galleries and a gym, yet the cottage itself is a private tropical oasis nested inside Florida's finest flora.
