Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most beautiful, well equipped, perfect vacation home for large families. The home is gorgeous, right on the beach, with so much to do, you really don't even have to leave the house. It deserves more than 5 stars!

This was by far the most beautiful place we have ever stayed! It truly does have it all! Was beautifully decorated and has awesome views of the beach! The area was really nice too, bustling with shops, great restaurants, friendly people everywhere we went! Only problem we encountered was the wifi, but we were on vacation so having all our family together, playing cards, singing and having a great week we barely noticed! We loved our week here wish it could have been longer !

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 15 loved The Blue Horizon. The location on the beach, the décor of the house, the pool, the covered patio, were exceptional features of this vacation home. We had the adult children in one house ( they stay up late and get up late) and the young children and older adults in the larger home. It worked out perfectly. Nothing was overlooked in this home. Everyone want to come back! Thank you for your hospitality and your beautiful home. So many memories were made here.

A family vacation with something for everyone!

One of the cleanest, well supplied, beautifully decorated homes I have ever had the pleasure of vacationing in. We had 3 generations on our vacation and every person had a wonderful experience. Thank you for sharing your home!

The good, the bad and the ugly!

  • 3 of 5

The positives about this home is that is it a great layout for large families. There are two separate homes with a pool in between them so there is plenty of space to stretch out!! It is probably one of the best stocked luxury homes that we have stayed in. The ocean view is amazing from both homes and their is TONS of kitchens! We were a little surprised at the actual location of the home. It is somewhat in a commercial area with a Circle K across the street. Honestly, after the initial shock, the convenience store actually came in handy during the stay.

The attitude of management of this home and the owners take away from the beauty of the home. Before we ever arrived there were email after email about how many parking spots were available and a HUGE list of all the rules that needed to be adhered to.

Upon arriving at the home, there were printed rules everywhere. Don't have food at the pool, don't have drinks at the pool, be quiet after 8:00 p.m., put a towel down on the deck before you spray sunscreen, wash your feet twice before entering the home, don't roll your suitcase on the floor, wash all your towels before you leave - you get the idea!!!

Management was contacted several times about small issues. The issues were always addressed but always with a "huffy" attitude!

Anna Maria Island is a GREAT place for vacation but I am not sure that this property would be a repeat.

Owner's Response: ​Thank you for your review as it better helps us assist our guests in the future. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the home and the amenities that The Blue Horizon provided to you and your guests. ​ Please note that since you were planning to host an event at the property (wedding reception), we had to have all of the proper paperwork in order to authorize such an event. We asked for your rental agreement which is required of every guest staying at The Blue Horizon, as well as the special events agreement - listing what type of event you were planning to host, as well as the amount of people attending etc. The different types of events differ in the additional fees that need to be charged, as well as the occupancy. We reached out to you via email and via phone, as the initial rental agreement that was sent back to us was not signed. On second attempt, you specified that you were planning to have both a wedding as well as a wedding reception at the home, but upon speaking to you on the phone, you indicated that you were only going to have a reception. It is crucial for us to have the correct information as well as provide you with the proper information such as parking & the city noise ordinance, to ensure that your event goes undisturbed and as smooth as possible. This is a privately owned home and certain rules and restrictions do apply. Considering the size of the home, parking is very limited and we always want to make sure that the guests are aware and can make other arrangements if necessary, especially if they are hosting an event. ​We are sorry for the inconvenience the email correspondence may have caused to you and certainly hope that it didn't take away from you enjoying the home.​ ​

Excellent Mom-cation get-away

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from 5 days of bliss at the Blue Horizon with 13 mom friends. This house is loaded with amenities/views. We were able to be comfortably spread out and enjoyed the entire property. There seems to be a nook to hide away and escape for everyone and main entertaining areas that also large enough that accommodated our large group when we did happen to all be present in one area during meal times. This place was very clean, was decorated to be comfortable for relaxing/lounging and it had a lot of wonderful touches throughout. Although I didn't have regular contact with the property manager, they seemed to have been highly accessible and helpful especially compared to the last property our group rented from. We had a small hiccup with the jacuzzi and we placed a call and a maintenance man arrived in a reasonable amount of time who was very helpful and was able to solve the issue. Little details in the decorating make it feel like a true luxury property, like the unique light fixtures and cabinet hardware and art in some of the bathrooms. Appliances are new and clean. Hot water was in good supply. There seem to be hidden blow dryers in some of the bathroom cabinets even though we read somewhere to bring your own. There is a blender, coffee maker and toaster available. Lots of large utensils and a modest supply of basic spices/seasonings left behind in the kitchen. The linens felt nice and not poor quality. We also had access to beach towels. It would be perfect for a family reunion with how each floor in each house seems to be its own little apartment with its own kitchen. One piece of advice is that during the week at this time, there is construction going on in the surrounding lots and if you are a light sleeper, a pair of ear plugs is helpful. Wifi is offered but many of us struggled with phone service. Verizon seemed to be better than AT&T. A sure sign we all should have completely unplugged. We also were able to log in to one of our amazon prime accounts and enjoyed a movie on one of the smart tv's. The beach/views are stunning! There were lots of chairs and other fun pool toys, noodles, etc available. Many of the ladies I went with enjoyed the hammock, a nearby spa and yoga on the beach. Many things are within walking distance. Really, all you need to bring is your sunscreen, bathing suits, sunglasses and something cold to drink. Flip flops optional. No need to go crazy packing. Thanks for sharing your home with our group!
