|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This great north end home has loads of room and plenty of nooks and crannies for the entire family to sprawl out and relax away the day. The location is a very short stroll to the beach in one direction and the bay in the other. Also very close to Pine and all of the great shops and restaurants in Anna Maria. The back yard contains the oversized and screened heated pool. In the front of the house you will enter into the spacious living area to include family room, kitchen, and dining area which leads out to the screened front patio with outdoor dining table. A hallway off of the main living area will lead you to the two bedrooms in the main house. There is a queen room with a private bath and TV and a twin bedroom along with another full bath in the off of the hallway. There is a door in the back of the house that leads to a breezeway/sitting area that connects the main house to the back suite. The back suite contains a large room with a queen bed and TV and an adjoining room with a day bed that can be closed off by way of a set of large pocket doors. Also in the suite is a large bath with a stand up shower and jetted tub. All that you could want in more in this unique island getaway. Sunset Gulf House sleeps up to 8.
This property is professionally managed by Anna Maria Island Accommodations, located on the sunny and beautiful Anna Maria Island.
The house is in a perfect location. Close to everything! However, not a lot in the kitchen- had to buy a cutting board and cookie sheet. Rooms are sparse, not well decorated. Cabinetry in bath and kitchen are pretty old. Set up is a little odd with the back room off a breezeway and the "4th bedroom" is not a bed room- partition doors don't even shut correctly. Worked fine but definitely has an older feel. Would be easy enough to update and decorate a bit to make it a little nicer.
Although the location and general set up were great, the Sunset Gulf House was poorly maintained. Sheets with blood stains, towels with blood stains, dried vomit on a bed, dirty dishes, no hand towels, and missing blinds which meant we had to hang blankets on Windows for privacy. I would not recommend this place to anyone other than a cleaning company.
Great location to beach. Is best for those wanting the "locals" feel. A few local restaurants and bars very close (within a block) plus free trolley service down the corridor of Anna Maria. We will put this back on our list to try to rent again.
Centrally located on Anna Maria Island which gives you the ability to easily enjoy all of the amenities, shops, treats, and eats the Island has to offer. Come once and you will want to come back for more. See what the many great travel magazines and major publications are calling, "one of the best family vacation spots in the country" for yourself. It will be an experience the entire family will enjoy. See you on Island-Time soon!
