Beautiful location and very nice accommodations !!
Only complaint is that little was done to make us feel welcome. At the rates charged, it would have been nice to have at least some coffee and cream on hand. We arrived quite late and had to go search out those two vital supplies in the morning. 10 a.m. checkout is a little harsh; they charge $180 for cleanup but demand that you sweep and do dishes. I do not mind the latter two, but with very little time (we had two small children with us) to do so, we could get no enjoyment out of our last hours there. All of this said, the house was clean and well equipped. We would certainly come again.
House was great, everything we needed. Loved being right on the beach instead of a condo or townhouse a few blocks in. A second bathroom is the only thing I would add.
Thank you for your comments! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your return to Anna Maria Island.
Location is perfect, but the house... not so much.
You can't beat the proximity to the beach or the view, but this house needs serious work. It looks like the bathroom was recently redone, but that's about it. And the bathroom window needs to be replaced to stop the bugs from coming in. There are foundation cracks throughout the house, and I'm not sure what was going on with the kitchen floor. The master mattress was at least 25 years old from what we could tell, and I don't think any other furniture was more recent.
It's a duplex, so if you don't rent the whole building, cross your fingers that you like the people you are sharing the back deck with. The screened patio is shared as well, and has a sliding wooden divider to separate you physically from the strangers on the other side, but don't expect privacy.
If you can rent this for less than $200 per night and don't care about the fact that the place needs to be gutted, do it, because the beach view and access is amazing. Mike Norman Realty was easy to work with and manage a lot of units on the island, so I'm sure they have other options they could recommend if this doesn't sound appealing to you.
Thanks for the comments! This is a new owner and she has been updating whenever the property is available. With it being ground level and beach front it is very hard to get into the unit to do some work. The kitchens are next! The 4th of July weekend was especially busy and as reported the next door guests had way too many people in their unit. Please stay in touch and we look forward to your return to Anna Maria Island!
It was just as pictured! Perfect spot right on you own little beach. Very clean!
It's a great property. Very clean! Quiet and located right on the beach. A great little spot!
The setting was absolutely beautiful. Perfect to share with 2 grand babies under 2!
Property was lovely. Very clean, freshly painted. Furniture was comfortable. Plenty of chairs and tables to enjoy the outdoor patio with a group. Washer dryer combo worked but was unbelievably loud so we had to run it when we weren't in the apartment Tub was plugged but maintenance cleared it out and works just fine now. The sunsets were magnificent!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!
We have found paradise! Fins to the Left and Fins to the Right is located within steps to the beautiful beach and sunsets of Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island, Florida. It was our first visit to Anna Maria Island and stayed at the Fins to the Left. We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. There were recent upgrades of the furnishings and decor. We've frequented the Florida Keys and Key West being our favorite but Anna Maria Island is a hidden gem for those who like the quiet and quaint island villages. Plenty of great restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Absolutely loved it! We can't wait to visit again!
Close to theme parks.
