This property is professionally managed by Anna Maria Island Accommodations, located on the sunny and beautiful Anna Maria Island.
I cannot say enough good things about this house! The rooms were amazing for nine adults (three couples and three singles) and the great room with kitchen and dining was PERFECT for our group. I would recommend that the rental company get some new pots and pans because the ones they have are old and of poor quality (we cooked a lot and EVERYTHING stuck to the pans, no matter what we did). The pool is spectacular and we had a pool service come twice during our week and kept it pristine!
The only issue that our group had with the house doesn't have anything to do with the physical house, but rather the area. In Holmes Beach and around Anna Maria Island, there is a VERY strictly enforced noise ordinance starting at 10 pm every night. Now obviously this is not the fault of the rental company, but I was never informed prior to the rental that there was a noise ordinance; I was not told when I picked up the keys and we did not find out about the ordinance until we got to the house and looked through the activities booklet at the house. I take issue with this, because my group of nine, we are all good friends and when we get together, we can get a little rambunctious; we're having a good time on our vacation and we get loud and we like to stay up late. If we had been told prior to renting this house that there was a noise ordinance, we probably would have tried to find a house in the area where a noise ordinance wouldn't have affected us, because we would absolutely want to be respectful of the residents in the area. I put emphasis on being a little upset that we were not explicitly told by the rental company because the citations for the noise ordinance are $500 for a first offense and $1000 for a second. That is a large amount of money which easily would have RUINED our vacation if we had received a citation.
Again, I absolutely adored this house and Holmes Beach in general is amazing and beautiful and I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone traveling to Florida with a large group.
Our family, 5 adults and 2 kids had a fantastic 2 weeks here. The house was perfect and the kids loved the pool. It 's only a minute's walk to the beautiful Holmes Beach. Also close to the free trolley stops and is in a safe cul de sac. Excellent house for larger groups. (A full length mirrir would definitely be appreciated)
We rented Angel Beach for our family that included 4 parents and their total of 5 kids (our grandchildren). the bottom line? To a person they RAVED about the property and said again and again how perfect it was for the whole group of 9. Each child had his/her own bedroom and that resulted in nary a harsh word among the 5 (ages 8-13). One of the 2 families already has their name in waiting for a house to rent for the 5 of them in 2017. The others may do the same. A BIG HIT, suitable for active families.
Our party of nine enjoyed this house with the following exceptions...The kitchen faucet was literally off of the counter, hanging in the sink. We reported it to the rental company and they sent someone out saying that he couldn't fix it. It was not fixable. The blinds in the living room (on the sliding glass door) fell down and left a nasty bruise on the head of one of us. Again, we notified the management co who sent someone but they could not fix them. The pool heater and filter were not working and someone came to fix them. The filter seemed to be fixed but not the heater. The pool was freezing cold. This party of nine was provided one roll of toilet paper per bathroom, ONE (total) roll of paper towels per stay (it was a 13 day stay), one trash bag, one soap capsule for the dishwasher and one load of laundry soap (and we were expected to wash our linens before we left). There were no cleaning supplies whatsoever and it got pretty bad at the end of our stay. This house could be so nice if some common sense changes were followed. The management company seemed sympathetic to our needs but that is about as far as it went.
We felt the house was overpriced for the return.
