Fantastic as usual!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 5th year that we've stayed in Unit 109 at the Nautilus! It was amazing as always. We just love the decor and color scheme. It really adds to that being on vacation feel. It is always so clean and tidy too. It has everything you could possibly need. All we do is bring our clothes and food so we don't have to leave this wonderful unit all week except to go out the sliding door to the beach. We've already booked it again for next year!

The condo was more than I expected. It was decorated very cute and it had everything we needed for an enjoyable week. It was very clean, the only complaint was the floor in the tub in the small bedroom was a little unsteady and should probably be replaced. Other than that everything was great. The back door opens up to a gorgeous view of the Gulf of Mexico and the front door opens up to a short walk to the swimming pool. We all had a great time and will hopefully be able to stay at this condo again in the future.

Beautiful and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Pros: Beach out front door, pool out back. Anna Maria is a great family beach vacation spot. Very clean, nice furnishings, beautiful bathrooms and kitchen. Beautifully decorated. Assigned and close parking spot. Great utilities - plenty of hot water and cool air. Good communication from leasor.

Cons: Wireless was not working, had to use my phone's hotspot. Did not communicate this to leasor however so she had no opportunity to correct it. Coin laundry is a bit costly but is on site.

Overall: Best place I've stayed so far at this location. We have been visiting Anna Maria island many times and would love to be able to rent this condo again. Highly recommend!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we were very pleased with this condo. It is directly on the beach which was very nice and convenient. My only complaint, which owners could easily fix, is linens. The sheets on the king size bed were like sleeping on sandpaper. They were either poor quality or old and the balls were very uncomfortable. It was also hard to find enough wash cloths and towels to use. It would be nice to have some hooks to hang towels on. Just one rod in each bath. And my daughter said the twin bed was very hard. Owners if u are reading, add a pillow topper or something. With all this said, we'd consider staying here again or at least at this property. We had a great time! Oh yeah, a vacuum would be great. I found a broom but had to buy a dust pan which I left!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed at this location for 4 years in a row now and will hopefully continue to do so for years to come. We bring our own food and never leave the unit as we love it so much, although restaurants and stores are nearby should you choose to leave. The decor is amazing and really makes you feel like you're at a tropical resort. With the beach just steps from your patio, who could ask for more!

Great Location - We have stayed here 5 times!

  • 4 of 5

My family has stayed at the Nautilus for 35 years and we have stayed in this specific condo 5 times. This condo is well equipped and has a near perfect location. However, this is the first time we have stayed where the owner does not use the onsite management. While the remote management was responsive, the situations we encountered would have been eliminated had the onsite manager been able to address them or schedule them. We had the prior renter try to get into the condo since she had left something - we discovered this as she was trying to enter via the rear sliding door. She didnt even check with the onsite manager as she knew he may not be able to help since the owner no longer used him. We did cehck for her items and didnt find them. Then a day later, we came up from the beach to find a maintenance person had let themselves into the condo to do work. He poked his head out of the back sliding door as I was helping my mother up from the beach. He literally scared me to death! He had let himself into the condo using a key. He indicated the work was necessary and that is why it had not been scheduled when the condo was vacant. He proceeded to work for more than half a hour - drilling into the walls , etc. It was very loud after being completely unnerved. I do not understand why we would not have received any sort of notice his was happening and honestly, replacing an air vent is not an urgent maitnenance issu. It could have waited a few days. If the onsite manager had been able to address this, we could have gone to him in that moment. However, all I was able to do was send an email to the remote manager. Its a great condo and one of the best at the Nautilus. Its unfortunate that the owner has chosen to no longer leverage an onsite manager since the renter is onsite and these situations could ahve easily been avoided. Would we stay here again? Sure. We would hope that there is a better system for scheduling maintenance and that the prior renters feel empowered to reach out to remote manager for assistance.
