Family of 8 first time to AMI

We loved this property! The manatee activity around the dock was amazing. The kids loved the pool! The proximity to the beaches was nice. Would definitely rent this place again! Great location!

Everything's Included.

This beautifully maintained and decorated home was an absolute joy to stay in. The only thing that exceeded the property was my interactions with Carolyn. She truly knows how to treat her guests and we could not have asked to have found a better home and owner.


Our family had an amazing, relaxing vacation. Our accommodations were exactly as expected / advertised very clean and close to extra curricular activities. Carolyn was a great hostess, quick to respond with any questions. The grand kids especially enjoyed the pool and the gulf waves. They just want to go back!

Perfect family vacation home

This property is pristine, beautifully decorated and furnished with quality items. Multiple outdoor areas to enjoy a variety of settings. Comfortable beds with quality linens and towels. Excellent location within walking distance of so much.

Great stay

We had a great time staying here — responsive host and fabulous location. In many way, the photos don’t do justice to the gorgeous back patio and canal. Fabulous!

Love this place

This has been the best vacation! We can’t wait to come back! The house is absolutely wonderful! From the location beach and inlet, to the house, the bar and pool! The owner is also so sweet we emailed back and forth and she is so responsive and helpful! I will not stay anywhere else! Better than HI and CA !

Awesome trip!

This propery was great! It had everything that we wanted and more. The pool area and tiki bar were so much fun to hang out at. It was a very nice & spacious home, and the owner was very responsive and helpful.

Best vacation ever!!!

Awesome accommodations, awesome location, awesome decor...had the best time. We tooled around town on the golf cart, paddled down the canal on the kayaks and visited with manatees...tiki bar was a nice touch... we spent a good portion of our time on the dock. Would definitely book again. Wifi is really good too

This house was a perfect getaway!

We had an excellent time at Bay-Canal Waterfront home! Our group lives only an hour away but we were looking for a local and safe escape during the pandemic. This house seemed perfect for us with spacious bedrooms, canal access, private pool, tiki bar, and centrally located.

It has two indoor living rooms (1 upstairs & 1 downstairs) and an outside lounge, so there was plenty of space to spread out. There is no access to the second floor from inside, you must use outdoor stairs. Not a problem for us but worth noting. This house was so conducive to being fun and relaxing, that we didn’t feel the need to go to the beach, even though it was on our to-do list. The golf cart was a nice touch as it was an easier method to pick up donuts from the Donut Experience. We spent mornings drinking coffee and watching the manatees from the dock.

Overall, we really enjoyed spending our time lounging at the pool, crafting cocktails in the tiki bar, and playing games at night. This house was a perfect getaway!

Wonderful Home!

We had a wonderful time! The home is close to everything, and Carolyn was very helpful throughout our stay. If you’re thinking of vacationing at Anna Maria Island, this is where you want to be!
