We celebrated our mother's 80th birthday and the house and surroundings couldn't have been better.
Everything was beautiful and peaceful. We took advantage of the beach and pool. Thanks again for making our vacation excellent!!!
Perfect beach house!!!
Thank you for having us at your property! The location and house both exceeded our expectations. I live in the Tampa area and I look forward to coming back again!! The house was very clean and the owners were extremely accessible. Thank you again for allowing us to use your house!!
Dorian did not scare us away!
Beautiful home and perfect location to town and beach. Colleen and Scott made sure our family was safe and comfortable with up coming storm. They stayed in continuous contact with us as well as being very flexible. They treated our family like their own. We look forward to staying next year in their beautiful home .
Our family of 6 adults and 18 month old twins was everything we hoped for. The home was beautiful, well-maintained and Colleen and Scott were great at communicating all we needed. Thank you.
Beautiful Home, Strange Rules
If you're looking for a beautiful, private home on Anna Maria Island, this is definitely a top contender. I have no complaints about the home itself and the location was great.
My only real issue was with the owners. I've stayed in quite a few rental properties over the years so I'm used to the standard rules and requests made by owners. To be perfectly honest, the list of things that the owners of this property expect you to do is ridiculous. They ask that you wash and fold all their laundry, strip beds like you're a maid, and basically do half of the cleaning service's job for them the entire time you're there.
I could understand these requests if the property had no cleaning fee, or even a reduced cleaning fee, but when I'm paying to have someone clean up after me, I don't appreciate being asked to take trash to the curb, clean the pool, which was dirty when we arrived, make sure we don't track any sand into a house that's on the beach, and do a bunch of laundry.
Overall, our stay was pleasant and we had a good time, but everyone was a bit on edge trying to make sure we didn't make too much of a mess or break any of the property rules. It was also a bit strange that the owners of the property stopped by one day to "get things from the garage" and also had a grill delivered and installed during our stay. I felt like we were under surveillance the entire trip.
Some people probably won't mind any of this, but I found it very annoying and disruptive to our vacation. I don't think we will be staying here again in the future.
I’m sorry you did not fully enjoy your experience at our home. Honestly we were shocked by your review. After 8 years of renting and almost 60 5 star reviews, we have never heard these type of comments. Ensuring our home is spotless and feels like you are staying in a home and not a “rental” is of the utmost importance to us. All of our house rules are in place to maintain a clean home and pool for our guests. Rinsing off in the outside shower after enjoying the baby powder sand keeps the pool filter running its best and sheets and sofas from getting sandy and gritty. Taking out your trash and starting the first load of towels helps the house get ready on time for the next guest.
As far as the “interruptions”. The old BBQ died and we thought it was important to have a new one there for you to use as soon as possible. Most of our guests grill and we did not want you to go too long without one.
We do all the landscaping at our rental homes and needed to grab some equipment out of the garage. We make it a point to give our guests a heads up before stopping by and never go in the house unless we are asked. We respect the privacy of all our guests.
In the future, a hotel might serve your travel needs better than a vacation home rental .
Colleen and Scott
Great visit to AMI with the family. Perfect house, perfect location.
This home is perfect for families! Shortest walk to the beach, close to Pine Ave, restaurants galore! Can’t wait for our next visit! Thanks to the Scott and Colleen for being great hosts!
