Exactly what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

I spent my honeymoon here and it was fantastic! I got all the feels being back in this neighborhood and the house was great for the two of us. Ed was very responsive and gave pointers for fishing. The decor was awesome and the king size bed was the best part of the trip after such a whirlwind of a wedding. The rod n reel is so close and heading to bean point on the bikes took no time at all. LITERALLY the only thing that someone looking to rent this place should be wary of is that there is a lot of construction going on next door and it starts early. But, all this means is you should get up with the noise and go explore the "awesomeness" that is Anna Maria. Overall, the place was the best and will definitely be re-booking the next time I'm down there!

Great location on AMI

  • 4 of 5

1 and a half blocks from Rod N Reel Pier where you can watch the sunrise over Tampa Bay. And several blocks from the Gulf. We enjoyed the nice bikes on the property. The kitchen and bath were very clean and the owner was super easy to work with.

The apartment was clean and close to a beach and fishing pier.

  • 4 of 5

It has a nice location. The kitchen was stalked with everything you need. There was a abundance of towels. They also had fishing equipment and four bikes with locks to use. We were happy to have a washer and dryer. The whole place was very clean which is a make or break with me. I gave it a four star because my only suggestion for the owner for an improvement would be some darking curtains in the bedrooms and a new king mattress. The sides are so broken down that you roll right off the bed if you sleep near the edge.
