Great getaway!
We had a lovely visit on Anna Maria Island. We took our young daughter and it was great to have the wagon, beach toys, chairs and umbrella ready to use for the beach. The location could not be better, the unit was clean, we enjoyed the patio very much! Had everything we needed for a great beach trip!

5/5 Excellent

We enjoyed our stay and would stay again! The pool, the beach equipment, the location and the house was perfect for our family of four!

4/5 Good

Anna Maria getaway
We enjoyed our stay over all..I hoped the unit wouldve been cleaner. Unfortunately the mattress had a slight odor of urine and there were crumbs in the kitchen in the corners of the floor also tons of splatter on walls and cabinets in kitchen. And I disliked the fact that the washer and dryer was extremely old and you had to pay to use it🙈....but!! And there is a but... location was great right across the beach and close to shops. And the kids enjoyed the pool!
