The house was beautiful.
"The house was beautiful. More than what we expected. And the beach and weather couldn't have been better.""
Bad news first. The pool - while the seeting and appearance are awesome the maintenance schedule with the pool guy being there twice, constant cleaning out of debris and then the bugs in early morning and at night were bad for a summer stay. Now despite that, which really are minor issues, the house and location were amazing! Clean, well stocked kitchen and even pool toys! There is room for everyone to be together or on their own. Plenty of towels where we didn't have to do laundry everyday with 11 people. Beautiful Neighborhood to walk or bike. Such a short walk to the beach, we might as well have been beachfront. OH, a little suggestion to owner, maybe supply a bigger trash can indoors with a recycle bin also. Would stay here again."
We had a wonderful stay.

Thanks For A Great Place!
"We had a wonderful time !"
"The house was just as described in the listing. It was so large two families could easily rent together each having their own floor. Just a 2 minute walk to a great part of the beach. The rental agency was attentive and helpful. Would definately rent this house again, especially at the "special" rate they had for April/May 2012."
"We had a GREAT birthday celebration!"
How far is the property from the beach?

The home is 1 property away from Gulf Drive. The beach access is on 69th St across the street, just one very short block.
Are there beach chairs provided to take to and from beach?
Asked On 07/24/2016 Answered on 07/26/2016
Unfortunately, Island Real Estate cannot guarantee there will be any beach chairs, umbrellas or toys at your vacation rental property. However, if upon arrival you find there are chairs, etc. then you are welcome to enjoy them. Some guests leave items behind and some owners will purchase an inventory of fun beach equipment a few times a year.
Too often these items get left behind on the beach, broken, etc. so there really is no way for us to know what is there from week to week. We suggest you check in, take a look around the property to see what is there that you would like to use and then if you feel you want something extra pick it up at a local shop or rent just about anything from Fun and More, Beach Bum’s or one of the other Anna Maria Island equipment rental companies.
