Awesome Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our (wifey & me) third time to AMI and definitely not the last.

Manatee Watch is very modern and comfortable. The open floor plan with vaulted ceilings make it perfect for any family or group. A vast majority of our time was spent near the heated pool. The pool's Baja Shelf is a nice feature my wife throughly enjoyed.

Just past the pool was the dock where the highlight of the trip was. Everyday you could watch the manatees swim in, eat and play in their natural environment. Although they are docile and lovable, please be respectful as it is their home.

There is also a covered area under the deck with a grill, tv and plenty of seats. It was very convenient for eating outside, taking a break from the sun or taking cover from those pop-up afternoon Florida showers without having to go inside.

We highly recommend Manatee Watch to anyone considering.

The house and views were just great. Everything that we needed was there. It was very clean, and we loved having the washer and dryer. The pool and hot tub were great, and we loved seeing the manatees every day.

I do hope that the owners will get new mattresses for the two bedrooms other than the master. One seemed to have a broken spring. The other seemed to have mattresses ment for bunk beds.

We would definitely love to come back if this things could be addressed. Thank you for a wonderful week.

Owner's Response: Hi DavidC, Thank you for your feedback! It is so nice to hear you enjoyed Manatee Watch and all of the lovely amenities that the property provides. We have checked the mattresses in the two bedrooms mentioned, but could not confirm what was described. The mattress in the master bedroom was replaced a couple of months ago and we will look at replacing others in the near future to insure all are in top condition for future guests. We look forward to having you back for another stay on Anna Maria Island and at Manatee Watch!

Great experience. Only potential area to improve - master mattress/box spring is very noisy.

Great Except for Management Company

  • 4 of 5

Anna Maria Island is a spectacular spot to vacation with great weather, beaches, restaurants, and fishing. The manatee were wonderful and the house was very nice. However, be aware that this home is not rented by owner. It is managed by Anna Maria Island Accommodations. They were good at collecting the rent and that's about all. They don't go out of their way to be helpful. There were no extra garbage bags, toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent, or cleaning supplies. We arrived early and although the cleaning service had completed their work, AMIA forced us to wait until 4:00PM. Very disappointing for a higher cost rental.
