  • Amazing oasis - heavenly!

    "What can we say... this was so perfect. This was the best vacation I've had since my honeymoon in Aruba. My wife, 2 year old daughter, and I stayed here for a week in October 2016. It was one of the best weeks ever. The house was clean, neat, and peaceful. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in, both bathrooms were clean and spacious. The bedrooms were quiet and comfortable. Ceiling fans in all the rooms added to the comfort level. The backyard was incredible. The wall and privacy fence, nicely screened by tropical landscaping, make it feel as if you are swimming in a secluded tropical pool. The two waterfalls into the pool are a delightful element are added much to the ambiance. The pool itself was one of the most pleasant I've ever been in - warm, and inviting. I've never swum in a saltwater pool before, and it was fantastic. The pool was the perfect size for a family fun. Access to the beach was a short walk off Beach Ave. The beach was wonderful - never crowded, covered with shells for us to hunt. We went during the day, and then again after dinner to watch the sunset. Just be careful when you walk home along Gulf Dr - there is a narrow shoulder and the crosswalks aren't well lit. There were pool floats, towels, beach umbrellas, snorkels, a beach wagon, bicycles, a medium cooler, and beach toys in the garage. There was a highchair, and we left behind a toddler potty if anyone cares to use it. The owner David was very friendly and responsive as well. Plan on having to purchase most staples - we needed toilet paper and garbage bags beyond the normal perishables you might expect. (Maybe that's normal? In our limited rental experience, those things have been provided.) Publix is a short distance away, and has just about everything you will need. Honestly the only negative of any significance is that we had to leave. If we could move in here permanently, we would. Simply put, this week exceeded our expectations."

  • The Perfect Location for a Family Gathering!

    "My Wife and I, invited my 4 adult children and their families to spend a week on Anna Maria Island. The location was great we were a few blocks from the beach, we had our own pier with a boat, we were a few miles from the downtown and shopping. The inground pool and hot tub were constantly used. You had privacy on all sides because of the lush landscaping. My oldest son, his wife and 3 children used the lower level for their family, they had privacy and their own space. Upstairs it was an open floorplan with a large breakfast bar and kitchen so we could share cooking for those large family dinners. Just outside is a screened deck, perfect for a family meal. All of the rooms and baths were generous in size. The home was designed for families that are in and out constantly from the water (boat, beach & pool. We did a sunset kayak cruise for the entire family that was amazing. Everyone, no matter what their age or interests found things to do every day. I want to compliment our generous Host, Matt King. He took us out on the boat and showed us the waterway and made sure we were comfortable and confident. He met us when we arrived and checked in with us during the week to make sure we were having a stress free week. He also gave us the best place to go for Seafood on the Island, The Star Fish Company, you would never know about it if you weren't a local. They are literally taking fish off the boats and preparing amazing meals. I would strongly recommend this home for large family gatherings. When we vacation in Florida we will definitely book this home again on Anna Maria Island. It was a great bonding experience for our family."

  • Trip to AMI property ID 16555 May 14-21

    "My friends and I were very pleased with the amenities and cleanliness of the house. It's located near the center of most everything; however, tucked away on a quiet street. One caution, there are a lot of steps in the house and no elevator. If you are disabled in any way, it would be hard to stay here, but if you are not, the house is GREAT! We had a wonderful time, and will contact the Carney's again for future stays!"

  • Better than advertised

    "Absolutely loved our stay at the Lazy Gecko II. It had everything we needed. It was very clean. Just a 5 min walk from a great spot on the beach. It's bigger than it looks. We will return!"
