It isn’t a big house but it is very well laid out with everything you need on vacation. The beds were very comfortable and the bedsheets, towels etc were all good quality. Being British we were pleased there was a kettle! Cindy was very helpful and quick to answer any questions we had. She really provides a fantastic vacation home with first class service. Location wise, the house is close to the beach either on the gulf side or the bay side. We loved walking to Bean Point with the beach wagon provided. We also walked the 5 minutes to Rod and Reel Pier and approximately 20 minutes to Pine Avenue where the stores are. We highly recommend the house and hope to stay there again soon.

The house was wonderful with plenty room for our group of 7 ranging in age from 6 months to 86 years. My grandkids loved the pool and spent a lot of time on the beach , a short walk from the house. Valerie was very helpful from the short notice booking, to providing a baby crib and having lights turned on when we arrived, to providing information on activities on the island. We cooked a Thanksgiving dinner at the house which shows how well equipted the kitchen was. The house was very spacious with room for all to find their own space when needed. We will definitely be back. We love Anna Maria Island! The beach horses were the best. My granddaughter is still talking about her experience!
