AMI Retreat: 3BR Family-Friendly Pool Home 200 Steps from Beach

Great family trip

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time staying at the AMI Retreat. The home is beautifully furnished and painted, and the pool is wonderful. Complete with some shady spots for those of us who don't want to be in the sun the entire trip. The kitchen was well-equipped, and there was plenty of seating in the dining room and living room. The proximity to the beach is great, and the owners provide lots of beach toys, seats, etc. along with a beach cart to take it all with you to the beach.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Coastal Cottages. They were friendly and easy to work with during the booking process and in getting information about the area and the property. They provide an app that gives you loads of information to prepare for your trip. Most importantly to me though was their responsiveness to a problem that arose. It was apparent to me based on their timeliness willingness to help that this is a company that values customer service and stands behind its properties.

A few complaints we had about the house was that the house were that the spa does not heat/work, which should be disclosed prior to arrival. The third bedroom is extremely small (no closet, no storage, barely room for us and one suitcase) and is vented differently than the rest of the house making it much warmer for us than the rest of the home and uncomfortable. Also, the Game Room is a converted garage that has no air conditioning, rendering it virtually unusable to us during a hot week in July.

Overall, though, keeping these things in mind, your family will still have a wonderful time.

Beach, fun and sun!

This family friendly vacation rental is located on Florida's beautiful Anna Maria Island, a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico south of Tampa Bay. Comprised of three cities—Anna Maria on the north end, Holmes Beach in the middle and Bradenton Beach to the south—AMI is one of the only places where the 'old Florida' charm still exists. The Island has every convenience needed, including multiple award winning restaurants, including Beach Bistro, Sandbar Restaurant, Sign of the Mermaid, and Waterfront Restaurant. There is also plenty of shopping available along historic Pine Avenue in Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach's historic Bridge Street. With the beach and the Bay just minutes away from your front door, there is plenty to do in the water. Kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, jet skiing, and parasailing are the more popular activities. With the Island only seven miles long, there is no need to drive when almost everything is within walking or biking distance. Plus, there is a free trolley service that runs the length of the Island every day. AMI truly has something for everyone, and everyone who visits falls in love with it. We are sure you will too! So, reserve your vacation home today . . . seven miles of pristine white beaches and beautiful sunsets await you!
