Beautiful and Bright - Very Pleased

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful! I reserved Over the Bay on the recommendation of a dear friend, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Barb was responsive and organized, and the process was easy on my end, which I needed! Our vacation was just perfect and we fell in love with the island and this beautiful, bright, clean home!

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and nicely landscaped. Beautiful view of the bay. It is within walking distance of several restaurants and shops in a quiet neighbourhood. The owner was very easy to work with. I would rent this property again.

We have a family of 4 with 2 teenage kids. We arrived and found the property just as described. The inside is well decorated and kitchen was well stocked for all your needs. There are beach towels there to use and a nice washer/dryer in basement. We all loved the private pool and it is very nicely landscaped. It was perfect to come home to after biking around the island or being at the beach to cool off. We spent every evening around the pool and the atmosphere was perfect with the landscape lighting.

The location of the house is perfect on the north end of the island and positioned right in between 2 piers on the bay side which was perfect for fishing or watching for dolphins and manatees. We rented bikes for the week and kayaks at beach bums - very affordable and informative about things to do on the island and the rules to follow with the use of all their equipment . The bikes were perfect for taking to a gulf beach access, shops and restaurants. The sunsets were amazing at Bean Point. We had plenty of things to plan such as fishing charters, parasailing, riding sea doo's and kayaking in the bay and back through the canals where manatees stay frequently (we did see a manatee and some dolphins). We definitely plan to return to this place next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such positive feedback . We work hard to ensure the house is as advertised so it's good to hear you found it that way. It certainly sounds like you took full advantage of all the island has to offer - there's so much to do, isn't there? And we love the quiet oasis in the back yard to chill after a long busy day, too! You're so lucky to see manatees - many renters have reported that they have too. We look forward to welcoming you back next year. Best wishes, Barb & Karel

Fantastic home in Anna Maria

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we chose this lovely property on Anna Maria Island. We are a family of 5 and had spent 9 nights in the buzz of Orlando & wanted a relaxing 8 night break on the Gulf Coast & this was perfect. (It's about 2 hours away, an easy drive).

While booking, & throughout our stay, Barb was a pleasure to deal with. She was so helpful & friendly.

The listing description was accurate. The property was across a road to the beach but the road is pretty quiet. Having the beautiful pool at the back was fab. It is set in a tropical garden which is well kept & is very private. We used the barbeque. The laundry facilities on the ground level also means you don't have to pack too much.

Inside, the accommodation is good. The upper twin bedded area is a mezzanine so might not suit everyone but was fine for two of our girls & had its own bathroom & couch/tv area.

Downstairs there's a modern sofa set which I much prefer to leather in a warm climate. There's also 2 double bedrooms, one of which looks out onto Tampa Bay.

One of the best aspects was the front porch. This is elevated so you can sit at night with a drink, read, chat & watch the amazing lightning storms over the bay.

The property was clean & the pool & yard people came while we were there to keep everything in good order. Beach towels are plentiful & available for use.

Another bonus is that you can walk to shops, restaurants (I would recommend the Waterfront nearby), walk down the Pier to a bar/restaurant, walk to Bean Point to watch incredible sunsets, or catch the free trolley bus which goes down the length of the Island.

We hired bikes from Beach Bums, who are so accommodating & will drop off & pick up bikes/trailers/beach parasols/ beach chairs/paddle boards etc. (Barb has 4 beach chairs which were handy).

We also did a sunset boat trip with Captain Ed at Spice Charters & saw dolphins & sea turtles & the best sunset.

We didn't leave the Island while we were there, there was plenty to do!

I have no hesitation in recommending this property.
