This was a last-minute reservation for our family. It's clear that the owner strives to ensure their guests have everything they need during their stay. The kitchen is fantastic with beautiful champagne, wine and water glasses, plenty of good-quality silverware that you typically don't find in a rental property. I spoke with the owner. He lives two hours away and vacations at the property regularly, which explains the impeccable decor and high quality living. Everything was perfect about this house. In addition to the 3000 sq.ft of air conditioned area, there is an entertainment room, non-airconditioned, with at least another 800sq.ft. The owner calls it a man cave. I see why. It has a large tv, comfortable seating (leather living room set), ping pong table, cornhole, etc. Fun Fun Fun room. You can hop on the elevator at this level (level 1) and go straight to your bedroom on level 3 without having to go through the house. We felt like the elevator is positioned just right, with direct access to the main areas, without disturbing the privacy of bedrooms and bathrooms. Also, being a very short block away from the beach is incredibly fortunate. If you go to the top terrace on the fourth level, you will be able to get a glance of the beach. Another bonus is that there is a large grocery store (Publix) with a nice deli and bakey. Also, there are several restaurants all within easy walking distance. The heated pool was absolutely amazing. The property is super clean, roomy and very comfortable. The high ceilings with crown moldings makes this house look very elegant. We loved the large pieces of art displayed in the living room and kitchen. They make you feel like you are in an exotic island, somewhere in the Americas, close to the beach, for sure. If we were to go back to Anna Maria Island, we would definitely stay here again.
Our family of 7 adults and 2 children spent 5 days at this beautiful property. We had a great time. The owner gets an A+ for customer service, for keeping the property impeccably clean, for designing and providing a pleasant environment and experience.
We loved everything about this house: across the street from the beach, walking distance to restaurants and supermarket, heated pool, fun entertainment area downstairs with a ping pong table, comfortable furniture, large WiFi tv, convenient private elevator to every level of the house. The evenings are quiet to enjoy a cup of tea on any of the patios. The location could not have been better. You won’t regret staying at this property
We just spent the better part of a week in Marc's beautiful home. The furnishings and decor are in great condition and lovely, the house was sparkling upon our arrival, and Marc has obviously put a great deal of time and resources into the attention and care to detail throughout. We highly recommend it to any families looking for a spacious home one block from the beach with its own private backyard heated pool (perfect for late afternoon swims). Marc was incredibly responsive and helpful in preparing for our visit. We are looking forward to returning!
This home is beautiful. It's in a great location and we had a fantastic stay. The management is fantastic and we will absolutely stay her again.
Absolutely amazing house, great location and well thought out layout,
I booked this beach house place to make memories. I had friends coming over from the UK. My children had grown up with my best friends children from birth till 15, unfortunately my friend now has terminal cancer, so we wanted to get all the kids together to have one last happy memory and this beach house certainly lived up to that. nothing but happy thoughts for this vacation home, I would go back in a heart beat
My family and I vacationed at Marc's house during April 2018 break and we had a great experience! The house is beautiful and well kept and Marc was very responsive if I had any questions. Our kids loved the "game room" in the basement and playing in the pool. The Publix and CVS are right around the corner, as well as a great and casual outdoor venue for eating and drinking.
I agree with the previous reviewers. This property is all-around great. Superb customer service by the owner, who is also the property manager, nice location at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac adjacent to a “green lot” so there are no neighbors on the “green” lot, just lush vegetation, very nice; walking distance to restaurants, a pharmacy, a Publix supermarket; the beach is a short 1 block away. The house is very spacious, super comfortable, super clean, well cared for and perfectly decorated with a classy beachy decor in mind. The property is gated which makes it very private. There are LED lights throughout the front and back yards that turn on automatically at night and turn off in the morning. That makes you feel very safe, not that the area feels unsafe, on the contrary, it felt very safe at all times. The downstairs area is absolutely gorgeous, decorated with an island concept in mind: heated pool area, two tiki huts, pool toys, and even a cornhole game. So much fun that at times the kids wanted to stay home rather than going to the beach. If we go back to Anna Maria Island, we know where we’ll be staying, hopefully! Thank you Marc for your awesome customer service throughout our stay and for sharing your beautiful property.
This house was great. It was right across the street from the beach and close to stores and fun. It's a beautiful home and the owner is fast to respond and willing to help in anyway he can. There are lots of comforts in this house and we will definitely be back in the future! Book it now! It doesn't get much better on Anna Maria Island!
We had a wonderful family vacation at the house. The house is everything described and more! We loved the pool and the elevator was a nice touch. All 4 bedrooms were very nice and comfortable. It was really nice each bedroom had their own bathroom. The location was great too! The beach bar restaurant accords the street was a perfect spot for sunsets.
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was so nice being right across the street from the beach and we really liked the tiki hut bar across the street- great margaritas. We used beach chairs at the property every day. Lots of room for everyone! We could've used more bath towels and we had no dishwasher or laundry detergent. Other than that every thing was perfect!!!
