Amazing location. Charming apartment.

  • 5 of 5

First, the location lives up to the description. You have a beautiful ocean view from the apartment and a private patio with a table and chairs where you can see the ocean. There is a small communal private beach/yard (with the BBQ) about 30 feet deep, where you can eat or hang, or you can just walk across it to the main beach. I mention because the view includes the yard as well as the beach and ocean from there ground floor. The beach is gorgeous, and you can watch the sunset from your apt or out on the beach. It also wasn't crazy crowded. It's a good place to rent kayaks or paddle boards for the week since the water is very calm.

The apartment is more charming than I expected from the photos. Stained pine ceilings, French doors, shutters and nice tile floors all add to the charm. The layout is more of a studio with a sun porch than a classic one bedroom, which was great for us as a family but good to know if someone needs more privacy.

The kitchen is surprisingly well-appointed with appliances, including a blender and electric can opener. It's a bit light on mixing bowls and I didn't find any measuring cups/ spoons, so maybe not great if you want to cook an elaborate meal, but just fine for us.

Valerie, the manager was very helpful and extremely friendly. At check-in, she says, "we're not trying to make everything perfect; it's the beach." So if you can roll with a few quirks, you'll be extremely happy.

We also enjoyed the little pool, which was kept comfortably warm. They could do more with the pool ambiance, but then, the main attraction is the beach.

All in all, we loved our stay. The hard part is leaving!

Owner's Response: Good Morning Nora, Thank you for your kind words. We strive in making your stay a memorable and in maintaining the Old Florida feel in our units. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the heads up on the kitchen supplies, we replace them at least twice a year. Many times we find then in one of the other units as guest gather around the BBQ area and utensils find their way into another unit. We will get some more just to be sure there are enough for for everybody. We are getting a new new Old Fashion Florida roof next week, so if you visit us next year there may be a little different look.!!! Hope you would like it. Thanks again, Frank.

The perfect get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I made our way to Anna Maria island for our 28th anniversary. We were both in need of some sun and R&R after a long winter. Apt. #3 provided just that! The weather was ideal and the little efficiency had everything we needed for a week away from it all. It was magical to be so close to the beach! We spent each night on the little patio after watching the beautiful sunsets. We will definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: Good Morning Heidi, Thank you for your business and kind words about our little piece of paradise. You are so right, the only way to experience our proximity to the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the sounds of the relaxing surf and the magical sunset disappear into the night is by seating out on your deck, relaxing and enjoying what nature has to offer. Hope to see you soon.Frank

Clean, Comfortable, right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

This is a great little place for a couple to spend some time right on the beach in Anna Maria. It is a downstairs unit, with the noted low ceilings, but is cozy. It is great that you can walk out the back door and be right on the beach, and the sunsets on the gulf are amazing. There is only parking for one vehicle, and if every unit is full, the parking is very tight, but workable. The kitchen has great new appliances for those cooking their own meals. The only inaccuracy in the listing was that there is only one flatscreen TV, and one "traditional" TV. The location makes it convenient to access from Cortez or Bradenton. Overall, I would recommend this property highly so long as the noted limitations are not of concern for the renters.

Owner's Response: Hi Jason , thank you for your positive review. Unfortunately there is not much we can do about the low ceiling and limited parking. Believe me, we have tried. We definitely can correct the TV issue and will do so in a couple of weeks after occupancy slows down. We also intend is changing that TV stance with a furniture that would have more drawer as another guest has suggested. Thank for your input. It makes it for us to provide what our guests are needs are. Thank you for your business. Hope to see you soon. Frank

A great place for relaxation and refreshment

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at what is now our favorite spot on Anna Maria Island, Casa Marina. The owner continues to update the facilities with a large, public grilling facilities and attractive brick work. I am not going to mention which unit we stayed in, because we want it to be available when want it. But we had a great time--excellent weather, an interesting variety of guests from the US, England and Sweden, a wonderful view of the Gulf. We wish the owner would replace the uncomfortable futon in the front room, but all the rest is very functional.

Schöne Tage am Strand

Wer das ultimative Standerlebnis sucht ist hier richtig. Direkt aus der Wohnung über den Sand ins Wasser gehen.
