"We have stayed here for three years now, and have booked for next year. We do an extended vacation to escape our Northern winters ( 30t years now) and love Anna Maria Island. When the place we stayed no longer became an option we were so happy to find this place. The North end of the island is quiet with way less hustle then many Florida spots. But within driving distance for many of those fun places to go. This house is perfect for that quiet relaxing vacation. It is extremely clean and well cared for. It has had improvements ( from large items down to small little detailed items ) every year with any needed updates. Kitchen is well stocked with all your needs for that home cooked meal. Linens are clean and newer for that at home stay you want. We LOVE the screened in porch , it is spacious enough for everyone to enjoy together, plus tucked just enough to give you that feeling of privacy, but with a great view of all going on around you ( we pretty much live out there ). The short walk to the beach makes my day, a book and a chair to enjoy my day, feet in the sand, sun on my face and the sound of the ocean. And occasional sea life views are great. Walk the beach to get that trophy of the perfect shell or sand dollar. And if it's not a beach day, or you are just not up for sand the pool is great big enough to float, or set on the step, or just a swim to cool off. Walking distance to many things as well - our personal favorite is the Rod N Reel Pier, great Florida atmosphere. If you want to go farther but don't want to drive, walk to that trolley stop or our other fun thing we love is call The Monkey Bus! The owner of the house is great to work with and easily reached for any concerns . Would I recommend this house, this location, this vacation? YES, YES and YES!!!"
