"We brought our boat but hated to spend time away from this oasis with it's very private, quiet, park-like setting. We didn't use our car at all during our stay. We bicycled everywhere, to breakfast, to dinner, to the piers and beaches. Even though the house has close neighbors, it has been landscaped in such a way that you're not aware of the neighbors and blinds/curtains can be left open even at night. This gave the home even more appeal by bringing the beautiful view outside to the inside. All furnishings are top quality and very comfortable. Everything was spotless when we arrived. Owner is quick to respond and easy to deal with. We will definitely be back!"

"My wife and I stayed here in June 2016 and really enjoyed the condo. We were concerned with the size of the unit from the photos but let me assure you there is more than enough room (the photos make it look smaller than it actually is). The kitchen layout is excellent and makes great use of the space. Cabinets, counters, appliances and cookware are high end and in great shape. Furniture was very comfortable, especially the bed, as we slept better than we have in any rental we have stayed in. We absolutely loved the beach chairs, umbrellas and beach cart provided, as we spent hours of each day on the beach. The only negative comment we had is there is no washer dryer in the unit. No fault of the owners, the design wouldn't support a washer/dryer, just made it more difficult to wash our items and the units towels using the on-site washer and dryer, especially when other renters don't remove their items in a timely manner. Overall very happy with our stay and we would definitely stay in this unit again."

Great quiet place which is near to many sightseeing attractions.
"My husband and I enjoyed staying in this unit because it was centrally located to many attractions that we wanted to visit. There were good restaurants nearby and at the end of the evening there was a very private patio on which to relax. The area was very quiet which made for a wonderful night of sleep."

"We were fortunate enough to enjoy a perfectly relaxing time at Blue Waters for 11 fabulous days, following a hectic short break in Orlando staying at the Universal Studios Portofino Bay Hotel. No matter how good the hotel was, it couldn't compete with the special style and luxury of this wonderful villa. It's obviously been lovingly designed and furnished by the owners to an exceptionally high standard, creating a pristine and supremely comfortable home from home.
It's ideally located in the north of Anna Maria, just minutes walk from the beach. We were able to stroll down to the squeaky fine sands, towing the beach cart with four chairs most evenings to enjoy the spectacular sunsets and dive-bombing gulls, splashing into the ocean in search of fish.
The villa is close to a wide range of fine shops and restaurants, again within easy walking distance - or via the convenient free trolley bus which we were able to catch at the end of the avenue to take us down to the City Pier.
But if you really want to chill out, there's no need to look any further than the gorgeous back yard and patio. There are lots of lovely sun-drenched or shaded positions set around the magnificent pool - and the heated spa was a very popular spot for a relaxing or invigorating session.
The TV, sound system and indeed all the appliances are high spec - and the soft furnishings are fresh and classy. But it was difficult to resist the outdoor charms of the villa and so the vast majority of our waking hours were spent under the sun or stars, with many evenings enjoying a glass or three of wine on the private upper balcony.
With the canal running right at the rear of the property, we just had to make the most of its proximity, so we rented a tandem kayak from Beach Bums on Pine Avenue for a couple of days and had a fantastic time paddling across Bimini Bay and out into the gulf, right from the back door!
Big thanks to Caroline and Reg for letting us stay, we made some wonderful memories at Blue Waters. Don't think twice about renting this property, you'll simply love it."
