Great house! Location very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Unexpected Blessings ll. Very close to the beach, great upper deck and the house is equipped with everything you would ever need. The upper deck was an additional room to the house! We had 8 people and the deck had plenty of room for everyone. We ate our meals outside and on windy chilly days we lounged on the deck instead of going to the beach. We have rented many beach houses and this was the most well equipped. Kitchen had everything and more then needed. Beach towels, abundance of beach chairs, umbrellas and sand toys was wonderful. I've never had these things available in a house before. Thank you!!!

Unexpected Blessings II

  • 5 of 5

Myself, one neice and 5 sisters just returned from 8 nights in AMI. We stayed at Unexpected Blessings II for the first time. We loved the house, and the proximity to the ocean. We had all the comforts of home, plus the bonus of beach chairs, umbrellas and such at our disposal. The owners couldnt have been nicer! The layout is great for a large family with 3 baths and two living areas, not counting all the outdoor spaces. Very clean with comfortable furniture.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in your vacation home. It is close to the ocean and we enjoyed many breakfast and dinners on the deck. My husband, who doesn't enjoy the ocean that much, asked me about returning this fall.

Hope to be back soon. Thanks, Arla

Anna Maria Island Stay

  • 4 of 5

This house was very spacious, clean, extremely well located and had everything you'd need for a stay at the beach. The owners were very easy to work with and let us have a late check out to extend our stay a few extra hours. The Island is a fun family-oriented vacation destination with loads of restaurants and beautiful white-sand beaches just out the front door. We spent our time relaxing in the sun, walking on the beach, boogie-boarding, eating out and enjoying family time together.

Excellent location and outstanding rental!

  • 5 of 5

We, family of 5, just returned from our stay at Unexpected Blessings. We had an awesome week; the weather couldn't have been better and the home had everything we needed! This rental home was just like home for us. We cooked out several nights; enjoying the deck and the view. Our son spent hours paddling around in the kayak. We liked the split floor plan. The kitchen was the best stocked kitchen for a rental home that we have experienced. We didn't have to make a single unexpected trip to the grocery. We didn't want for a pot, pan, dish, bowl, etc.... The home owners are generous in that they truly make their rental a home away from home. The house was clean, linens nice, and again location terrific. We will be back!

Very Florida

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights here in July and found everything clean, friendly, accessible, and fully set up for an emblematic Florida vacation, or I should say Anna Maria Island vacation. That's always the conflict: Should we tell others how great this place is, or change the subject and hope no one else finds out about it? This home is very big, with numerous discrete but connnected living areas; modern appliances; many, many things in the garage to use at the beach; good technology (internet; good cell phone signal strength; even a printer); good ocean views; great beach proximity. Washer and dryer work well. We were just 3 people. House could take many more. With the ocean right there, the lack of a pool is not a negative. We would come back here again without question. Owner is very responsive and professional to do set up and payment.

Location

Car: recommended

Nearby is St. Armand Circle, dine at wonderful restaurants, enjoy the arts, gift shops, and outlet shopping. There are many outings, just a short ride from your vacation home. Sarasota and Tampa airports are 30-50 minutes away. There is golfing, fishing, boating, kayaking, snorkeling, diving, and much more. Or just walk the beautiful beaches hunting for shells. Professional baseball is minutes away with Pittsburg Pirates, Devil Rays & Yankees. Nearby, Orlando boasts Disney, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Sea World & Universal. Our guests come from all over the world and many from Florida. Most repeat with us year after year. I think you will see why!

Other Activities: shell hunting, kayaking, gift shops, discount outlet mall
