This house was great as it relates to the proximity to the beach. That being said, for what you pay for the property (and the fact that they are raising the price by 20% for 2018) it needs a bit of TLC. You would expect real couches and not ripped slip covers and the beds were extremely uncomfortable. Needs some attention before we would consider renting again, especially at the new price of over $6,100.00 when we paid $4911.00 for the week.

Owner's Response: Hi Chad, Thank you so much for your feedback, we truly appreciate it as we are not living in the house and did not know the beds were uncomfortable. I have ordered new slip covers and looking to order new mattresses. Thanks again!

It was a nice house but located on the corner of Gulf Drive which is constantly busy.

Bedding and towels are needing updating. The bunk beds were made but when the kids went to bed they found they were loaded with sand and shell fragments. As well, the kitchen needs a redo for every day equipment like knives and glassware. We own a rental property on Longboat and we'd never equip a home like this one was. Very bare minimum. While the house had a nice layout everything was a bit rundown including the sofas that were slipcoverss with ripped slip covers that we removed but soon realized why they were on when one of us cut our hand on the exposed staples on the back of the sofa. All in all, whoever owns this has done the bare minimum in equipping the home and it needs some TLC.

For Shore was a real treat! Gorgeous place, felt like we were in the lap of luxury as soon as we walked in. Our family had a blast. Love Anna Maria, and this house was just perfect. The beach was almost at our doorstep. The house is beautiful, really comfortable, lots of room, very nicely furnished. The pool and patio and spa were great. Close to everything.

Perfect house, perfect location

For Shore--we love this place. Such beautiful house right at the beach. We stayed here with four couples right after New Years and it was fabulous fun. Even with the eight of us, the layout of the house gave us plenty of privacy when we wanted to just sit on the bedroom deck watching the Gulf, and the open floor plan allowed all of us to get together comfortably. Beautiful pool area. Comfortably but elegantly furnished. Best of all, the beach is just right out the front door. Perfect vacation. We're coming back to For Shore with our kids this spring.
