Christy and Chuck (the owners) are fabulous! They personally maintain the property daily themselves. They offer everything you could need on vacation except food and your personal items. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful, and the beach is a 2 minute walk. I am a "local" to the area and have stayed on AMI for years; this is my new... More

We have not been able to travel much as a family. We have taken a couple of really nice vacations, including cruises. My family asked to return to AMI and Island Garden Villas instead of taking a different trip. They have everything you could possibly need for a wonderful vacation. The time we had to take vacation this year was... More

Our stay was simply wondeful in every way. This beautiful oasis is a restorative spa that gave us memories to carry with us forever. So glad we found this little piece of heaven surrounded by such a beautiful beach!

Absolutely thrilled to find this place on Anna Maria Island. My husband and I needed a restful, quiet place to stay, close to the beach and this was perfect. We rented a one bedroom apartment. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but when I opened the door on arrival, I was beaming with joy. It felt so comfortable, with... More

We just spent six days at the Island Garden Villas. The weather was hot, however the beach was right across the street. The water was warm, the sand soft and the sunsets beautiful! Lots of places to visit within a one hour drive. Located in Holmes Beach on the island, there were lots of casual restaurants and some were pet... More

Having travelled round the States for 6 weeks we were looking for a property and surroundings where we could totally relax for our final 9 days. We certainly found this on AMI and the Island Garden Villas! We stayed in The Bird of Paradise Villa which exceeded all our expectations. This is not just a "Holiday Let" but a lovely... More

When we planned our Florida trip we were looking for a quiet beach area to stay with our 10 month old son. When doing the research we found Anna Maria Island and we have been informed that it is a very nice and quiet island which is perfect for a family beach vacation. And I must say, Anna Maria Island...

Paradise is the only word I can use to describe these villas! Once you step inside you feel like you are in your own little world. Pictures do not do it justice. The villa is lovely, and everything you need to feel at home is provided. Chuck and Kristy were wonderful hosts, and we really enjoyed talking to them. We... More

What an amazing place. The garden was more beautiful than I imagined after reading other reviews. Chuck and Kristy are wonderful. They do not intrude on vacation, but are around if you need them. They provided every kitchen item I could imagine, including glassware, serving pieces, foil,..., and wagons to take the umbrellas, beach towels, coolers, chairs, current magazines, they... More
