Loved Our AMI Time
"Have to tell you how great our stay was last week. The house worked perfectly for all of us. The location was an easy walk to the beach, and the pool was wonderful especially when the kids had more energy than the rest of us.
When we had to call the office with our concerns about the pool, every call, transfer, return call was done with efficiency . We were treated pleasantly and with concern. If someone had to come to the house, either from the office or the service it was done in a timely manner.
We were happy to work with you and Island Realty and will do so again. Thank you Kacey""
Loved the house and pool.
"Loved the house and pool.""
I absolutely loved this property. The pool is very big and clean. There is shade and sun available as well. The landscaping was absolutely beautiful. All appliances worked perfectly during our stay. The beach was about 7 houses down the road, and it wasn't crowded. The beds were comfortable and the house was fully stocked with 4 tvs, washer and dryer. By far the best property we have stayed in. Loved it!"

"My husband and I stayed for a long weekend at Blue Manatee Retreat-214 69th at the end of January 2015. It was a lovely stay. The retreat was, in fact, too large for the two us, however, I can see how a much larger group could stay here and be quite comfortable. I adored the turtle welcoming us at the front door. The space is bright and clean. All new appliances and plenty of room to make dinner and enjoy conversation. The home has been beautifully renovated. I loved the sun-room the most, it was inviting and relaxing as it overlooks the heated pool. After a brief walk to the beach and watching the sunrise I would read in the sun-room. In the afternoon, we rented bicycles and traversed the charmig island. Cycling is very easy and all cars are accommodating. We stopped at many shops and admired the wildlife from the beach. Dining was easy, Anna Maria does not have any big chain restaurants making the trip even more special and unique. The only negative thing I could say is the trip was too short. I absolutely will stay here again!"
Great location and pool!
"Blue Manatee is a perfect location on Holmes Beach. The private section of the beach is just a walk down the road (about 5-10 min). The beach is calm, white sand and clear waters. Not very crowded. The house layout was very nice for my family, including myself, my husband, and my 3 and 5yo sons, as well as my sister and her husband. The split bedroom concept allowed one couple on one end of the house with us and the boys on the other. Also nice not having to share bathrooms as there are 3. The kitchen is newly finished, with modern appliances. The washer/dryer also seemed new and was very handy to have since we had to wash a lot of beach/shower towels and bathing suits. The room size was nice. Of course, the caged in pool in the backyard was the kids' favorite. We enjoyed many hours swimming around. The house location is in close proximity to many shops/restaurants on the island. With our small children, we always drove the rental car, but if you are not so hindered, many are accessible via bike or free island trolley. There is also a public stretch of beach nearby and if you drive about 30 min., you can easily visit Siesta Key beach or Venice Beach is about an hour's drive. Overall, I was fairly pleased with this vacation home. I will say that the property management company in charge was very attentive and helpful with several minor problems we had, which was nice. Overall, we had a great time on vacation and will have fond memories of the Blue Manatee! :)"
how many blocks to the beach and can we set up a tent on the beach. can we walk the dog on the beach.
Asked On 07/12/2016 Answered on 07/12/2016
This home is about 1 block to the beach. You can set up a small beach tent, but it does need to be taken down each night. Dogs are not allowed on any of the island beaches. There is a beach that does allow dogs, however it is off island on SR64 (Manatee Avenue) as you head in to Bradenton.
does this house have WIFI through out? Thanks.
