  • Our New Secret Paradise

    "We absolutely LOVED this villa! I am almost hesitate to say all the good things it deserves bc we feel like we have a secret spot that we don't want anyone else to know about! We are a newly engaged couple 29 years of age. We loved having the bay in our backyard! My fiance LOVES to fish and that's why I ultimately chose it. We are still eating the fish he caught. We brought our kayaks and dropped them right in the water and tied them off to the dock. On this trip, he actually proposed to me on a tiny island in the middle of the bay after a day of kayaking :-) ALL of the surrounding houses were HUGE so we felt like we were living among the rich and famous haha. We saw so many animals and creatures. There were little lizards everywhere, we saw dolphins from our backyard, crazy long legged birds trying to steal our bait, sand dollars, seashells galore, ... the list goes on. The villa itself is way better in person. Its not winning any decorating awards but its nothing like the outdated photos listed. There were little small easy fixes/repairs that needed to be done but it in no way affected our enjoyment and at the affordable rate offered its hardly a complaint. The walk to the beach was fine for the 2 of us with no kids and no alot of stuff. I would recommend a beach cart. Being of the bay made up for it for us. Frank is AWESOME- super easy to talk to and he went over and beyond to accommodate us! Overall 5 Stars- we are SO looking forward to coming back!"

  • 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!

    "This beach cottage was a perfect place to relax and unwind. We brought my son's friend who had only been to Myrtle Beach. When we walked down to our private beach, he said "where is everyone?" I explained it was a private beach and he said "this is awesome, we have it all to ourselves!" And that we did. The cottage was spotless and had everything we needed. Would not have changed a thing. Highly recommend staying here your next vacation."

  • Wonderful Family Vacation Spot :)

    "This house was perfect for my family and myself!! The house is beautiful! The kids loved the in ground pool! The layout of the home is open and very inviting! The kitchen is large and has everything you need to prepare meals. There is a washer and dryer in the home, which was very convenient. The neighborhood is very quiet. We loved taking walks in the mornings and evenings. We had plenty of dining options near by, and the beach was just a quick drive away! I would recommend this house to anyone!!"
