  • Awesome! Exceeded all expecations.

    "We went into the vacation with high expectations and this home and AMI still exceeded them. This was our first visit to the island and we'll certainly be back after this experience. The pictures don't do the house justice. It's spacious, clean, perfect location. Truly amazing time. The pool was perfect. Sitting on the dock at night was one of my favorite parts. We watched multiple storms roll by at night and the fish constantly jump in the canal. We rented a boat for four days and what an experience that was to have it docked right in your back yard. The walk to the beach was easy and it's not crowded in that area at all. We boated alongside dolphins, swam with a manatee on the ocean side and just had a fabulous time. We made good buddies with the resident heron "Sherlock". He added a lot of personality to the property and was fun whenever he'd pop over for a visit. The location is private. And my oh my, sooo quiet. Which is what we truly loved about it. I think we talked in a whisper almost the whole vacation because it was so quiet and serene around the home. From start to finish this was a great experience and I'd encourage anyone to come visit Anna Maria and to stay at Simplicity Cottage. Also, we were here in mid-August. Yes it was hot, but there's water all around you to keep you cool. And I was really surprised that it wasn't buggy at the home. Maybe we got lucky because I thought there'd be a lot of bugs being on a quiet canal setting. But they weren't a bother at all. Didn't see a single mosquito (except as we walked through to dunes to get to the beach briefly). My only regret is we didn't stay longer!"

  • Good value, excellent location!

    "Location, location, location! Anna Maria Island is truly a slice of paradise. And this large and comfortable beachhouse is located just two minutes walk from an absolutely fabulous, yet uncrowded, beach. The house is much larger and nicer than the few photos suggest: three big bedrooms and three full baths give plenty of space and privacy. We're a family of five, but the house would be suitable even for six or seven persons. Caveat: you have to walk through one of the bedrooms and one of the bathrooms to get to the master bedroom at the back of the house. Thus the bedroom and bathroom in the middle of the house are not very private (but for our 8 year old son it worked out perfectly). We also loved the well equipped kitchen, the cosy living room and the separate dining area. The house isn't new, but it's clean and nicely redecorated on the inside. The exterior could need some maintenance. There is a back yard, but a nicer place to sit outdoors would be a great advantage. The host Doug was very kind and helpful. When we had a problem getting into the house he was very quick to respond and help us. There are plenty of wonderful houses on Anna Maria Island, and some are certainly more luxurious than this one. But considering the price, this house is really good value, very comfortable even for a big family and an extraordinary location for a wonderful and relaxing vacation. Dan & family, Sweden"

  • Perfect little house!

    "I recently stayed with my husband, son, daughter-in-law and infant grandson. This was the perfect place for us. From the moment I inquired about this property, until we left, we enjoyed a relaxing, care-free experience. Anita is very responsive and helpful. It was the first time we had traveled with the baby, who was 7 months old, and she made sure we had all the equipment we needed....a crib, stroller, high chair. The house is lovely! There was room enough to spread out a bit and even to accommodate a few more people for Super Bowl! Yet it is cozy enough to encourage family time. It is very clean, nicely decorated and appointed with everything you will need including basic cooking supplies like salt, pepper, sugar, etc. And the pool! We spent most of our week looking at it, longingly, as the weather was not cooperative for a few days. But when we did get into it, it was fabulous! There is even a shallow area that the baby loved crawling around in. The beach is a very short walk away and there are also a few little restaurants within walking distance. Anything else you might like is certainly within a few minutes drive, so the location is also perfect. Truly, there was not a thing to complain about.....except possibly El Nino, but if Anita could have chased that away for us, I am sure she would have!"
