The home is in great shape and in an excellent location. The layout of the home is very welcoming, and let's the outside in with great screened-in areas and covered areas. The pool area is a true oasis, and the views were highlighted by a pair of manatee in the canal, several osprey that lunched in a tree nearby, and a group of yellow-crowned night herons on display in a tree across the street. We caught several ocean trout and a spanish mackarel by kayak in the intercoastal.
The kitchen is top-notch! The bedrooms very comfortable.
If you are considering this home, keep in mind that it is in a residential neighborhood, as are most AMI vacation rental homes. Anna Maria has recently passed ordinances to quell loud behavior, including fines, etc. Our first night we were less than quiet past 10:00 in the outside areas (think splashing pool and lots of laughing), and the neighbors were quick to call us to task. We were not bothered the rest of our stay, with normal vacation noise between 8am and 10pm.
I wouldn't hesitate to rent this beautiful home again. We came back to Michigan feeling very relaxed and confident that sun and warmth are on it's way!
