  • 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"

    "My husband and I had not been to AMI in 20 yrs. We were so pleased with this home away from home! Frank was such a pleasure to work with! Very clean, fantastic views comfortable deck, more hangers and drawer space than ever! Kitchen very well stocked,even though I did no cooking,I was on vacation! Beach chairs and umbrella! Wow! We should have stayed a month rather than a week! We know where to go when we return to AMI! Thank you, Frank!"

  • Rooftop Views!

    "Everything is included in this house: a kayak, bikes, chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and beach towels! We loved watching the sun rise from the bay side and set on the ocean. This house has plenty of space and everything is very comfortable. Its proximity to Cortez, Bridge Street and and other restaurants made it convenient to get anywhere."

  • 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!"
