This property - Flip Flops Forever - had the perfect location and was set up beautifully for multiple families. It was a wonderful property that could be a real gem with a little TLC and updating. All that being said, it was perfect for our family."
IT WAS EXCELLENT
"The advertisement was very accurate and all things were as they said!"
We had a blast & would stay there again,,,
"The property was very well maintained and had everything a family would need!"
All Things Were Done Well!
"We had the best of experiences. Our stay was exceptional-the staff from reserving to check out was very professional and pleasant."
Prime Location - Great Rental Company - Very Nice house
"Finding a 5 bedroom place to stay was really narrowing down our pool of places to pick from. We couldn't have been more pleased with our selection. House is perfectly located on the northern half of the island, with less than a two minute walk to the beach. One road to cross, but not much traffic at all. Seemed to be a very quiet location, which was a plus with a two year old when it came to nap and bed times. Kitchen was bigger than what we expected, which was a pleasant surprise. Island Real Estate was top notch. We had a major storm one evening, and even though it was not the scheduled day to clean the pool, we called the office, and someone was out that afternoon! To top it off, the office called later to make sure that the pool was cleaned, and that we were pleased with the results. Great Customer Service. Pool is large, and perfect for a fairly large group - plenty of seating room around pool. The safety fence was easy to work with, and saved many hours of worry - with a 2 and 5 year old on the trip. Dual Central Air (as well as an additional air conditioner in the first floor Master Bedroom was awesome, as it gave the ability to keep levels (and to a degree - rooms) at different temperatures. Location - very close to beautiful beach, close to all amenities - couldn't have asked for a much better location. If we are ever in the situation for a 5 bedroom place in the future, this will be one of the first I look at. A tad dated, but perfect for a large gathering."
Location, Location, Location.
"First I have to start out with location, location, location. Flips Flops Forever is located just 3 houses away from the beach. We'd pack our cooler and head over for the whole day but still was able to easily walk back and use the bathroom and get more sun block. It was also close enough to walk, bike ride or take the trolley into town for shopping and restaurants. The second highlight is the pool. It's so nice and a great size. There is even a ledge for little kids to play, supervised of course, or to put a chair and lounge. The temperature was perfect. There was a grill in the back yard for cooking out and plenty of lounge chairs and even a hammock. A great place for hanging out or taking an afternoon nap. Did I mention the putting green, and the volleyball net? There was something for everyone. The house itself was very nice. A great size and set up for multiple families vacationing together. There is plenty of room for everyone to have privacy. There is a pool room for the kids and game components too in the living room. The kitchen is gorgeous and has all the amenities that you would need. There is a full size washer and dryer in the second, newly remodeled, bathroom downstairs. It's so nice to be able to pack light and wash your swim suit. The upstairs has a great set up, 2 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is huge and is set up for a whole family, a queen bed, a twin trundle and a toddler bed. It even has a mini fridge, microwave and sink for snacks. This is my favorite room of the house, there\'s even a balcony with an ocean view. We've stayed at a several houses in Anna Maria and this was by far the best. Enjoy."
