Great getaway in Anna Maria Island
"I had a great weekend getaway to this home on AMI. It has a ton of space and is great for entertaining. Its on a cul de sac and is very quiet, but only a few minutes' drive from some great nearby restaurants. You can fish of the dock in the back, and of course the beach is only a few minutes away. I highly recommend this home for your next visit to Florida's west coat beaches."

A little slice of Paradise
My family and I needed to spend quality time together and unwind after a hectic holiday season. We stayed one stress free week in this simply incredible house. At first I didn't want to write a review, so I could selfishly save this place for us. However, I felt compelled to let others know about this fantastic slice of Paradise! It's decorated so tastefully that you will instantly feel like you are home. The kitchen made my heart sing. Since we love to stay home during the night time and cook we took full advantage of this state of art kitchen. However, Anna Maria Island is home to award-winning, phenomenal restaurants from rustic beach-side Tiki bars to elegant bistros. We visited many of the local hangout too. My husband and boys went totally wild when they discovered (drum roll please), The Donut Experiment. They had fresh donuts with bacon on top of them. Yes they did. We hit for lunch one day, Poppos Taqueria which is gourmet Mexican Street Food, authentic and yummy. Next stop we had to visit the best local hamburger spot on the island, Duffy's Tavern. Family-owned and operated for over 35 years. It was delightful. Breakfast is big for our family, so we went down the street to Ginny and Jane E's, what a hidden treasure and fun gathering spot. After all those breakfast and lunches we enjoyed a few adventures. We did the eco-tour, walked on the Anna Maria City Pier, Kayaking and the boys did the Segway Tour. Honestly, Waterfront Retreat is gorgeous. There is a flow to the common area of this house that allows everyone to be together comfortably sharing the space. The flat screen televisions were impressive as well. The boys were happy to have wireless internet too. The family spent late afternoons and early evenings in the backyard area swimming in the heated pool and relaxing in the patio area. They do have a boat dock that we didn't take advantage of, but next time we will bring our boat. However, I was the happiest of campers when we were allowed to bring our 40 pound delightful Golden Doodle, Piper... what a bonus for us. She was in heaven. The whole family gives this property two thumbs up and four furry paws up as well. We can't wait to return next year, same time, same place. Enjoy!"

WHAT A HOME!!!!
"This was my first time to Anna Maria Island and it did not disappoint. The house itself is a modern marvel as there are numerous windows surrounding the house inviting you to immerse into the sunny island life. Highlights of the home include the waterfront view, amazing gourmet kitchen, ten flatscreen TV's (so I could watch the Olympics), super cool outdoor/indoor bar and just a three minute walk to the beach! There was plenty of space for my family and me to relax and enjoy our vacation, and it was also very pleasing to be able to bring our two dogs to enjoy the vacation time with us. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a peaceful, yet extremely exciting vacation. "
"First time we have rented a vacation property with your company and it was seamless. We love the ability to see availability and reserve on line, and your check in and check out process was very easy. Thank you!""
Perfect in every way
The house was beautiful, and just as the photos showed. We loved this location on the canal it was perfect! We saw a lot of marine life, which was exciting, that you might not get to see at the ocean. Had a couple cleanliness issues to start but they came and fixed them right away!! The pool area was good though might seem small, but it was perfect and kids had a blast. Might be more appealing if homeowners would offer beach chairs, or bikes, fishing poles. Great Vacation and location."
How far of a walk to get to the beach?

The bay side beach is along S Bay Drive which is a short walk from the house. The Gulf side beaches are along Gulf Drive and North Shore Drive. There are public beach accesss, the closest is via Magnolia Ave.
