A little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our choice of the Lime Door as our home during our recent visit to Anna Maria. That is what is so special about this place - it's so comfortable and well appointed that you wish it was your home. Alan has thought of everything to make your stay a relaxing one. High quality materials were used when renovating, the kitchen is well-equipped, the bedding is awesome and the bathrooms immaculate.The quiet, beautifully landscaped private backyard really makes this rental heads above others. We easily walked to the stunning north end beaches, the pier, stores and a variety of very good restaurants. We are very grateful to have found this wonderful property and hope to spend more time here in the future!

We love Anna Maria Island, but didn't want to go the usual commercial rental route, so we decided to try VRBO. Our adorable cottage had everything we needed at a great location! We were close to the cute shops and restaurants on Pine Street and it was an easy walk to the beach. We will definitely book the lime door cottage again!

A charming oasis in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our small dog) loved our stay at The Lime Door. The owner has anticipated and provided every need for a great vacation. The house is immaculate, tastefully decorated and furnished with every amenity. The location is central and within easy walking distance of Anna Maria’s beautiful beach, piers, restaurants and cute boutiques. The private tropical garden is serene and lush, with a nice gas grill and picnic table for alfresco dining. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. Perfect!

We had such a great stay here. The property is in an excellent location, is very well equipped and is immaculately presented throughout, with great taste. The kids loved the bunk beds and the husband loved the piped music and Apple TV!!!

The owner is very helpful and is on hand with local tips etc.

Would certainly recommend and hope to return ourselves.......the photos don't do it justice.

Our new happy place!

The house is so clean and organized and decorated really cute. It had everything that we needed for a family of 4 and we were so sad to leave. We would love to stay there again. The owner is very nice and helpful as well.
