  • 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."

  • Gorgeous Pool!

    "We stayed here the first week of August 2016. There was 3 couples and 3 kids ages 3,5 and 10. The house is so modern and decorated beautifully with a nicely stocked kitchen and comfortable beds like so many other reviewers stated. The pool area is perfect. It has a ledge that is 1/2 foot deep that the younger kids loved to play on and the table in the pool was perfect place to have drinks and watch the Olympics that were on while we were there. Huge basket of beach towels for anyone to use. The walk to the beach was only 2 blocks and there are lots of sand toys, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, bikes, etc. 7 of us could fit around the big table for meals and the 2 little ones loved their special table off by themselves. But we did have a couple of minor issues and one not so minor issue . . . 1. The water heater broke the first day we were there and it took us a couple of days to compare notes and realize that all of us were taking lukewarm showers. The pipes run underground so close to the surface that the water was semi-heated since it was August not ice cold water. Emma tried her absolute best to get service men out there quickly but it was a tank-less water heater and needed both a plumber and electrician to come out. So there was a lot back and forth between the two on the order things needed to be done and we were a lot more involved than we wanted to be on our vacation. It did not get fixed till Thursday (we arrived Saturday prior). We did get compensation but it took a month. 2. The kid's room (with the bunk beds) has a door that leads outside. Of course, all the kids tried to open it and the youngest one ended up sleeping with parents for the week because of the door. I completely missed that detail in the pictures so just be aware. 3. The master bedrooms do not have locks and open directly out into the living room. Our kids loved to open our door when we were getting dressed. 4. One of the master bedrooms has a port hole window looking directly out to the street that does not have any window treatment over it. We ended up just stuffing a blanket in the window to block it. 5. If the waterfall is running in the pool, the pool is not filtering. The waterfall was so pretty and fun to play under but on the Friday of our stay the pool company came by for a check and told us the pool had not been filtering all week. If water overflowing from hot tube, then water is being filtered."

  • 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!"
