Such a great place. So many little items left for our use. It really was like having our own home. We enjoyed it.

Amazing Property

by Shirley on 10/04/2017

 

Firstly I would like to speak about Aleta we were due to arrive just as hurricane Irma was about to hit. Aleta kept me updated as to what was happening before we traveled also arranged an alternative accommodation if the island had been evacuated by the time we arrived. As it happened we were able to delay our trip by 4 days so we were able to go straight to the house after Irma had moved away. The house was outstanding all the rooms being large and airy the furniture and decor suited the house and area. Aleta has put a lot of thought into everything , there was everything we needed supplied toilet rolls soap tea coffee sugar milk no need to shop on arrival, the filtered water tap at the kitchen sink was a god send. The lift was really useful mainly for getting suit cases up to the bedrooms. The pool right opposite the house was a lovely area to spend the last hour after a hard day at the beach. The lockup at the beach was very useful not having to bring the beach chairs etc back to the house each day. We also enjoyed the swing down by the inner waterway to watch the fish jumping. We have been coming to the Anna Maria Bradenton Beach area for many years and can honestly say this has been the best property we have rented.

Outstanding Vacation Rental!

by Terry on 07/15/2017

 

Thank you for our home away from home! It was a very enjoyable stay! Everything we could possibly need was there. Having the elevator for Mom was wonderful. The cabana with beach supplies, the well equipped kitchen, laundry room... everything we could ever need was there. We will most likely return for another vacation right here. The two pools and beach access was great. The entire family had a wonderful vacation. Highly recommended!

Perfect for Families of All Ages

Everything from the 2 pools, proximity to the beach to the elevator and overall quality of the accommodations, this location really was perfect for families of all ages.

Amazing Five Star Accommodation!!

by Joyce on 06/02/2017

 

This lovely townhouse was spotless. The decor is lovely and the location was perfect for us. 100 steps to a 6 step up and 6 step walkover to a beautiful flat beach. We were 5 ladies who loved the elevator for unloading and loading the luggage from the spacious garage. We had a friend who was recovering from a hospitalization that would not have been able to enjoy her stay without the elevator. Chef Marcel made a wonderful stuffed mushroom appetizer, two kinds mixed olives with citrus oils, homemade Foccia Bread, Seafood Crepes with a lemon sauce and the yummiest Key Lime Pie ever. It was so nice to have a dinner in the frige waiting for us on arrival. I loved the pool and large hot tub 10 steps across from the garage. I took my frosty Margarita there every night. The electronics in the house are top notch. Loved the beach locker so we could take the beach chairs and leave them in the locker until we were ready to go home. The beds and linens were the best ever in a beach rental. Lots of automatic features for lights and door locks. I would love to come back again soon!!

Absolutely amazing experience - great property

by Benny on 10/17/2016

 

From the minute we hit "go" this experience has been "top shelf". Basic items were stocked when we arrived and there was a binder with every imaginable piece of information included (electronics, cooling, wifi, etc). Convenience of the locker at the beach made for significantly less hassle (not having to drag beach chairs/etc back and forth). Plenty of places to wash off sand. Pool was directly in front of the condo. Our family loved every minute of it, including our two smaller grandchildren. We will definitely be going back.

Amazing Property

by Mary on 08/24/2016

 

This was by far the best rental I've ever stayed in since we've been vacationing in rental condo/townhomes. The reviews are spot on, and the amenities provided are by far above and beyond what a typical rental property comes with. The townhome is spotless, the master bedroom bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on (this is including many business trips I take staying in Marriotts, Hiltons, etc). The property on 17th street, and the building that is part of Bradenton Beach Club directly on the beach are designed so well to travelers. Many folks don't talk about the beach locker that is part of the property on the beach, but I can tell you that vacationing with a group of 20 people, that beach locker was a lifesaver for us every day to not have to haul umbrellas/chairs/boogie boards/beach toys - you name it back and forth. I can't say enough about the property.

-----------------------------

 

Amazing Beach Rental!

by Diana on 08/15/2016

 

Just a few steps to the beach and this townhome has everything you'll need for an amazing beach vacation! The townhome is beautifully decorated, great lanai, and comfortable beds! The kitchen has everything you need whether your fixing a quick breakfast or a big seafood dinner! The owners have thought of every detail - from luxury linens to bicycles to beach toys! One pool is directly across from the townhome and the beautiful beach is a very short walk (less than 100 steps) with a locker included for storing the supplied beach chairs and umbrella. Just pack your swimsuit and sunscreen as everything else is included in this beautiful townhome. My family is looking forward to a return to this beautiful townhome and beach!

The Best Destination For A Real Vacation!

by Pamela on 06/08/2016

 

It has been years since I've been to Anna Maria, and since our family of 5 has been on a vacation. When your past experiences at east coast beaches have been bad, and you have 3 kids----2 of them being 17 and 14, the pressure is on! When I read the reviews of this property, I felt it would be a good fit, and it definitely was! All the comments were right on! Not only did we not have to provide one item for the beach, and all the toiletries, it was all the little extras that takes all the stress out! ( One of them being the keyless entry into the house. No worries of wondering who has the key, or getting locked out! ) When you have been in a car for 18 hours, and can pull in a garage, unload your luggage in the elevator, and take it straight to the bedrooms, you are all ready starting to unwind. The house was amazing, and between the beach and the bay, and all the local places to go, we did not leave the island----except to eat at the Fire & Stone Pizza restaurant----all you can eat pizza and salad bar, plus free sundaes! A great deal to fill up teens! Even my husband, who is anti-beach, was able to relax and unwind. But when your kids tell you , "Mom, you did good!", you know it was a great time, because they don't lie! We will definitely be back, and hopefully restart the tradition of a yearly vacation at Anna Maria!.

Beautiful townhouse!

by Particia on 05/16/2016

 

Enjoyed our stay. Beautiful townhouse and very clean. Walking distance to everything. Great amenities. Beautiful beach and so nice to have the locker to store the chairs and umbrella provided by the owners . We've already booked again for next year.

Heavenly Haven

by Pauline on 01/29/2016

 

My newly retired husband and I spent a wonderful 10 days in this exceptional rental. From the moment we arrived we were 'at home'. The amenities were truly appreciated as we had poor weather and spent more time than we might normally have done. The convenient location is wonderful for exploring Anna Maria and is one to which we intend to return.

Beautiful Townhouse

by Chris on 10/14/2015

 

This was a great rental. Felt like we were staying with friends, not strangers. Pull into the extra long garage, take out your suitcases and load them into the elevator. Head on up to the 3rd level and put bags right into bedrooms- how convenient is that??!!! Extremely well stocked- never needed to get any toilet paper, paper towels, etc. We had 3 young kids (7,5,2) and had no issues. Walked across the driveway to the salt-water pool. Go to the end of the driveway, cross the street, go through the gate, and you're on the beach. Beach locker was very convenient. Complex is nice and quiet and the free shuttle picks you up at the end of the driveway. More TV stations that you could ever need, and even though our weather was perfect, we had free Netflix access. We even used the grocery shopping service . The front door even has an access code vs keys, so you never have to carry them around or get yourself locked out. So easy, the older 2 kids could get in/out. Perfect place!!!! Thank you!!!!!

-----------------------------

 

Amazing Experience!

by Rebecca on 08/18/2015

 

We own a timeshare and usually use it or rent thru the company. This was the best first impression. The house was immaculate and fully stocked with everything you'll need, from kitchen tools to pool noodles! The private elevator was very useful for groceries and luggage, and was a nice added bonus. The townhouse has a huge locker across the street at the beach, which was very helpful for beach chairs and kids toys. The townhouse is perfectly located across from one of the two pools and a short walk across the street from the beach. The only thing I would change would be deeper fitted sheets for the master bed...thats it! Everything was perfect~ Thank you for the amazing accommodations, we will definitely be back!

-----------------------------

 

Best Rental Ever

by Robin on 08/01/2015

 

Let me just say that this place and Anna Marie Island are our new found favorite! This was such a quiet house and incredibly clean. My kids loved looking at all the treasures collected from various places. That led to some great conversations. Having the community pool directly across the driveway was great too. The pictures of the house don't do it justice. There are also so many "extra's" provided including the beach gear. It was such a treat to store the chairs, toys, umbrella, etc in the locked shed instead of hauling it back every day. Right after leaving for home, we were all talking about how long we want to come back for. Thanks for helping us create memories of a lifetime!

-----------------------------

 

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!

by Paula on 06/23/2015

 

This is place is very clean, well kept, tastefully decorated and absolutely beautiful! It was so nice being able to use the beach supplies that was provided. I have recommended this condo to a couple other people.

What a clean, comfortable home, you'll LOVE it!

by Doug on 01/25/2015

 

When you 1st walk into this place, you're blown away by how clean and nice it is! The furnishings and decorations are so tasteful and there really is nothing not thought of in this house to insure that you have a comfortable stay. The electronics, wifi, games, lighting, candles, etc...all impressive stuff! There is a 3 ring binder with all the instructions that you need to make your stay run smoothly. There is a rack of maps with brochures of local attractions and activities and also includes a bunch of local restaurants as well. The bed are SUPER comfortable, the towels and linens is better stuff than we have at our own home. We cooked a few meals in the house and everything that you could possibly need was there. We had family members come over for a big meal and had plenty of dishes and seating for 11 people. The jacuzzi tub in the master bath was a nice touch and we used that twice under candle light. The pool and hot tub are directly across the narrow road and the beach was maybe a 2 min. walk. We used the bikes several times and borrowed the beach toys and chairs that are at this house. I would recommend this house to anyone thinking of visiting this part of Florida! P.S. You can drive 2 cars under this house in the long garage, load all of your suitcases on your OWN ELEVATOR and bring them to the floor where you need your stuff....how cool is that???

Perfect Holiday Retreat

by Sarah on 09/01/2014

 

We had a fantastic holiday and did not want to leave. The house is extremely well equipped, very comfortable and clean. The only downside to us was the noise from the air conditioning unit when sitting out on the lanai balcony but we got used to it and I guess that's the price you pay for staying cool inside. The beach was beautiful and it was great having the locker on the beach to store chairs etc. There are good restaurants close by and the trolley bus was a great bonus as well as the bikes. We have no hesitation in recommending this holiday house and we would definitely like to return.

-----------------------------

 

Paradise Found!

by Brenda on 07/21/2014

 

We have been coming to Anna Maria Island for a few years and each time we try to find a place to call "home", but we don't have to look any longer! From the moment we walked in the door we knew we would never want to stay anywhere else. This property is everything it says and more. It is in a wonderful location, with the beach or bay just steps in either direction out the front door. The unit is beautifully maintained and has every comfort imaginable. Lazy days at the beach or by the pool, which is situated directly in front of the unit, made it hard to leave. We have already reserved our stay for next year and hope to keep returning for many years to come!

-----------------------------

 

This condo had it all!

by Bonnie on 07/21/2014

 

Where can you go and have a welcoming vase of flowers and bottle of wine to greet you? This condo was outstanding. Not only was it aesthetically modern and comfortable, but everything was provided as a home away from home. Paper products, laundry, beach toys/umbrella, shampoo/soap, pots, pans, dishes, and even shampoo/soap. The place was clean, modern, and had all the conveniences of a brand new home.

-----------------------------

 

Amazing place to stay, very clean

by Paula on 06/29/2014

 

This is an amazing place to stay. It was everything and more than what we expected. It is a great location, very clean, and beautifully decorated. So many things available for us to use, so we didn't have to pack a lot stuff. I would highly recommend this townhouse to anyone and we hope to go back ourselves. ​​​​​​​We enjoyed Joe's Ice Cream, the Sandbar Restaurant and the BEAUTIFUL sunsets!

-----------------------------

 

Beautiful and very well maintained, clean

by Dawn on 04/10/2014

 

We had a great experience with this property. As stated above, it was very clean and well maintained. There was plenty of room for our family of 6. Beds were comfortable. We utilized the shopping service provided. That was great! I went to Publix for one 20 minute visit!! Great property! Enjoy it! Take care of it! Can't wait to come back!

-----------------------------

 

Perfect Spot

by Judy on 02/09/2014

 

We loved Anna Maria Island and this very comfortable townhouse. It is equipped with everything you need, a home away from home. Very clean and well maintained. Steps to the beach and the bay. Enjoyed long walks on the beach, watching sunsets, eating at local restaurants, shopping at quaint stores in Bradenton Beach and on Pine Avenue. Sarasota with its many attractions is only a short drive away (or bus ride). St. Armand's Circle and Sarasota Farmers Market were favorites.

-----------------------------

 

Perfect in every way!

by Suzanne on 01/07/2014

 

My husband and I were looking for a place on the beach where we could spend Christmas week with our two daughters and son-in-law. This truly felt like a home away from home, and exceeded our expectations! The kitchen was equipped with everything imaginable, the furnishings were lovely, the beds were comfortable- not a thing was forgotten. We also really enjoyed the heated pool, hot tub, bicycles, beach chairs, sand toys, and more!! The walks on the beach and sunsets were stunning! We would definitely return on our next trip to Ann Maria Island!

-----------------------------

 

Beautiful, & comfortable vacation home!

by Mike on 11/05/2013

 

We had a wonderful week - all the comforts of home were provided in this beautiful condo! The elevator is especially nice to take luggage up to the bedrooms. We love Anna Maria Island, and this condo made our stay this year extra special! We plan to come again and would recommend this unit to our family and friends.

-----------------------------

 

Wonderful

by Stratton on 06/26/2013

 

The property was absolutely wonderful. The beach is so close to the condo and we loved the lockers, my husband was very grateful!

Wonderful

by Fiona on 06/06/2013

 

We had a wonderful time at this accommodation. It had everything we needed and more. The decor was beautiful and a lot of effort has clearly gone into ensuring the house feels welcoming and relaxing. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone thinking of staying in the area. We had several friends also staying in the area and our townhouse was easily the best in value and comfort.

-----------------------------

 

AWESOME Vacation Spot

by Andrea on 06/02/2013

 

This condo was more than we could have asked for - perfectly located and every detail thoroughly thought through. The owners had everything we needed including awesome beach chairs, a boogie board for our daughter, a book with menus to local restaurants and more! Everything in the condo was immaculately clean and very well cared for. The a private beach area was heaven and the 2 beautiful pools were well used by our entire family. The location was close to town but outside of the business of the village. We are very much looking forward to coming back next year!!

-----------------------------

 

What a nice place.

by Mark on 04/30/2013

 

We were impressed from the moment we walked in. I put the luggage in the private elevator and unloaded on the top floor. Met my wife in the kitchen, where there was a nice bottle of Bordeaux waiting for us. We surveyed the notebook left out for us, and headed off to the Waterfront Restaurant for a delicious seafood meal. The place was immaculate, we lacked for nothing. The accommodations exceeded our expectations. There are all kinds of restaurants in the area, and a Publix and a Walgreens just north up the street for day to day necessities or if you want to have a meal in, there is everything you need as far as cookware, silverware ect. Thanks for making our stay stress free. I would recommend this property to anyone. Thanks again.

-----------------------------

 

Love this place!

by Lee on 04/08/2013

 

Just returned home after staying here for a week. We loved the property and the location. The townhouse was incredibly clean and well maintained/updated. About a 90 second walk to the beach and even has it's own locker at the beach to hold all your beach gear. New owners provide nice plush towels, great beach chairs and even a cooler for your use. Couldn't ask for anything more!

-----------------------------

 

Awesome!

by Rich on 03/29/2013

 

What an awesome place to stay! The townhome is wonderfully decorated and outfitted with most everything you will need during your stay. Pool and hot tub are steps away and the beach is a two minute walk. Restaurants and an island shuttle stop are nearby as well. A+ experience and accommodation. We can't wait to come back again. Thanks!
