Good things: location across from the beach and near the Anna Maria pier and the price is good. Plenty of room for two couples (2 bedrooms, small galley kitchen, 2 bathrooms, large living room). Bad things: it was tricky flushing the toilets, every appliance was quirky or old (microwave worked occasionally, to get at the washing machine, you had to stand on your head(!), no hair dryer (we asked for one, they got us one, and then it proceeded to break). Had to get batteries for remote and a replacement for a broken coffee maker (owners did this but it seemed like to first couple days we had to work on getting things up to snuff). The light bulbs throughout the unit must have all been 25 watts, which made it difficult to find enough light to read. There was no guide for the TV and we were unfamiliar with the channels so that took a lot of work. Deck furniture was either uncomfortable or broken or wobbly. Lastly, they do not take credit cards so beware. We did not have our check book with us so we had to call our bank back home and get the OK to withdraw a large sum from our debit account. They also advertise a hot tub but it was not very accessible so we didn't bother. Also, a gas grill would be nice. It was otherwise comfortable there but if we return to the island, we will not stay there.
