average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

The Best!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was hands down The Best House we have ever stayed at on the island. Everything you could possibly need is included and the pool/hot tub were amazing. The beach is a two minute walk down the street. We only made one call as we wanted the pool to be a little warmer and they came out right away. You will not be disappointed with this property. Would book it again in a heartbeat!!!

We loved it here!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far our favorite rental that we've had on AMI. This is our 3rd time coming to the island. The backyard is great, with so many fun things. My girls liked playing games during the day under the tiki hut, and the nice white lights at night. The waterslide, pool, and hot tub were fantastic, as was the temperature of the water! My only complaints are that the bath towels were ratty (some), and there were not enough spatulas in the kitchen (only 1 proper one). Other than that, a perfect vacation here. Close to the beach, away from traffic, about 1 mile to Pine. Loved it!

Relaxing, home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing and had ALL the comforts of home. The kids (and adults) loved the pool and slide! The hot tub was not heating when we arrived but after a call to Anna Maria Accommodations, it was fixed that day!! (Staff at Anna Maria Accommodations were extremely friendly and helpful!!) There is only a short stroll to the beautiful beaches!!! (Even had beach chairs, wagon, umbrella, & sand toys available to use.) We will definitely visit AMI again and would love to stay at Day Dream in the future!!! WONDERFUL, RELAXING VACATION!!

WOW— Best beach house ever!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six— with two infants! We were worried that any beach trip would feel like a lot of work, but we were wrong. This house has every amenity you can think of. It's spacious, luxurious, so well decorated and extra comfy (the beds alone were a dream to sleep on!). The pool was the perfect temperature for all, the water slide a big hit (I think the adults enjoyed it more than the kids!) and such a close walk to the beach. Added bonus: A cart to lug all your stuff to the beach, plus beach chairs, plus sand toys, plus floats for the pool! As an amateur foodie who loves to cook, I have to also say that the kitchen is VERY well appointed— there wasn't an appliance, pan or tool I needed that was not stocked. We will never forget this relaxing vacation and we can't wait to come back! Thank you for this Day Dream of a house!

Amazing island retreat for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect with exceptional attention to every detail. We were in awe everywhere we looked. The backyard oasis was a favorite for the whole family.

We traveled with 5 adults and 2 children and had plenty of space to enjoy both family time and private time. The house is configured making the most of all space with basically 2 master suites, 2 additional bedrooms and a set of bunk beds in the hall. The amazing kitchen had everything we needed and more to enjoy family meals or pack lunches for the beach which was only a short stroll away.

The backyard space was used from morning to night and enjoyed by all! We couldn't have expected anything nicer and the entire family will remember this vacation for years to come. We are thankful to have had the opportunity to experience such a truly amazing place and hope to return in the future.
