  • Exceptional Florida Beach home

    "WOW! I signed in to rave about our stay at this beautiful cottage and saw the verbiage of the last person rating this home. They were there the week prior to our arrival. We arrived March 13 and I’m shocked and puzzled to see their comments. Our experience was no where near the dismal explanation of their stay and experience. We loved the sophistication and the charm of this elegant cottage. It is decorated with antiques and Persian rugs that are antique, but not in need of repair or replacement. It is the decorating that gives this cottage a charm of days gone past. The wood paneled ceiling was charming and not your usual white on white new beach house that is common and not what we wanted for our vacation. We did not smell any “urine” odors and we found the cottage extremely clean with crisp linens upon arrival. We especially loved the bath sheets the owner provided instead of the usual bath towels. The spreads were not in need of replacement as stated and we were extremely pleased with the home. The grounds were not in need of upkeep. We were having such an amazing time on the beach and around the pool, we did not have time to truly inspect the details of the landscaping, but the grounds were in no way impeding our enjoyment of our vacation. The “wooden shutters” that the prior occupant describes are “Bahama shutters” that are there for protection from hurricanes in the front bedroom and on one side of the home. They certainly are typical to Florida for style and era. I’m certain that this person has minimal experience with homes on Anna Maria that are outfitted with the style of shutters on older homes. The shutters in no way distracted from our stay and provided extra privacy. The pool cover edges were slightly disintegrated, but in no way interfered with our enjoyment of the large heated pool. We have rented other villas in the past with “heated” pools, and this home truly does have a heated pool. Most don’t get up to the comfortable temperature of this pool. The toilet seat in one bathroom had some scratches on the paint of the seat, but in no way was in need of replacing. The grounds had a few weeds, but the trees and the flowers were gorgeous. This home is privately fenced and provides amazing privacy for our family, especially from the pool area. The beach view is a few steps to the gate and once you open the gate, “VOILA” you see the gorgeous beach. Jana was an extremely helpful hostess and I just don’t understand the comments about her"

  • PERFECT!

    "We had a perfect Sisters-Daughters-Nieces-Cousins vacation and a lot of it being perfect was due to the great place we stayed. We rented the top and bottom units so everyone could be together. Both units are spacious and really nice. Everything we needed was there. The location is excellent. You can walk to the beach with a nice path going down. Plus it is only a short distance to walk to the trolley pickup to go shopping, eating, or just to see the Island. No need to bring beach towels, chairs, or even a cooler - all was located at the house for us to use. Including a wagon which made taking items to the beach really easy. Although we did not have any younger children the units had beach toys and inside toys. The owners are super nice, and everyone on the Island is extremely friendly. It is a great place for a vacation and we highly recommend it. We are already planning our next summers vacation and are going to rent these units. Thank you we loved it.

  • A great stay on a great island!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home on Anna Maria Island. The owner was great to communicate to us in a timely fashion leading up to our trip to answer any questions we had. Very easy to work with. The house was clean and very nice. When we pulled up and realized it was a duplex we were a little concerned but there was never a problem. We never heard the neighbors and we had our own private pool with privacy fence around our portion of the yard which was great. It's close to one of the main roads on the island but we were never bothered by traffic noise. Landscaping is well done in order to give you privacy even though you are a little close to the main road. It's a short walk to the beach. We weren't there a full week so we didn't get a golf cart and it was fine. We highly recommend Dips for Ice Cream and going to The Donut Experiment. Both were fantastic. Loved our stay and would recommend to anyone."

  • Litte Slice of Paradise

    "We have now stayed twice in this super condo. We are so glad we found it on VRBO. Both times we have found it very clean and happy bright. The condo provides us with what we need. We have laughed that we are very content here with so little of our own personal belongings. Guess that tells us something. The location is perfect for the bay (can see from the living area window); the pool (just a short walk to a very large heated saltwater pool); and the gulf (walk across the street to view the sunsets or walk the beach). As golfers, we have been able to find super golf courses and can't wait to go again. And we have done great day trips from this location (Punta Gorda, Arcadia, Apollo Beach to name a few). The lucky owners of this condo have been super to work with. Will we be returning, you bet!"
