“Loved it - but a few tips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Angelinos is a little gem. My husband and I (40s) love to swim and mostly we love QUIET. The property is lovely and clean and pristine, very old-school Florida, no bars in sight and very dark at night. The shade trees are a huge plus, you can hang out anywhere on the property and be right in front of the beautiful blue-green Gulf of Mexico while relaxing in the shade. We stayed for eight days, the first four in the Cancun unit, which was a trip. Ticky-tacky furnishings and kind of shabby. My husband has some mobility issues and Cancun was kind of a mishmash of levels and kind of dark and cramped and awkward for him Not terrible, but not luxe, kinda like an old seaside motel. Comfy bed and to be honest, the unit has nice privacy. The price was right, we couldn't believe it was $120 per night.

The next four days we moved to Aruba, which was 1000 times better, tastefully decorated, light, open and much newer. Richard the owner told us it was his favorite, "if I could, I would live in that unit". But he and his sweet wife have a big gorgeous house on the property so he's set up.

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and got in a swim, the beach was nearly deserted. Ravishing views of every sunset. The entire week it was like that, peaceful and quiet. Some people here have complained about kids, but even though we saw a family with two young boys the first few days, we never heard a peep from them. There is a Publix a few blocks away where I recommend you stock up on fruit and snacks, the kitchens in each unit are well-appointed with nice coffee makers, full-size fridges and freezers, microwaves and all kinds of pots and pans to cook simple meals and salads. There are great restaurants in the area and if you like Indian food the one Indian restaurant features local fish and is excellent. We got takeout twice!

We also loved the outdoor shower, keeps sand from getting in the room. Those people who complained that its water was cold have no clue about what an outdoor shower is for. It wasn't that cold, nothing is cold in south Florida in July :)

The one and only complaint I had, and this is purely subjective for people like us, is on the weekend you get the "weekend warriors", local Floridians staying there and in nearby properties. There were some 20-somethings who liked to "par-TAY!!" and they brought all kinds of junk to the beach, like huge floats they left anchored in the water like giant ugly beer hats and they played bad music and left cigarette butts and plastic crap all over the beach.

This property is very near an amazing bird sanctuary, and when we were there the sea turtle eggs were hatching, there were little nests all over the beach, protected by barriers. It was lovely. Take a boat tour from Cap'n Kathe to see dolphins and manatees. Breathe in the fragrant air and listen to the waves and swim and swim all day and pick up tiny seashells - but DON'T TAKE LIVE ANIMALS LIKE SAND DOLLARS, geez, some people have no respect for nature! Bring a ton of sunscreen because the sun is brutal. And please, if you've come for drunken parties, go somewhere else, you're missing the point of this beautiful oasis.

Room Tip: Aruba is great, Cancun is dark but private and quiet. Don't know about the other rooms

Very unique vacation spot on the beautiful Anna Maria Island. Room was clean and colourful furnished. Full kitchen and a beautiful garden with swingchairs sunbeds and tables and chairs. Walking distance to Publix, Subway and pizza everything else with a free trolley.

Room Tip: The Cancun unit is large enough for 2 people.

For a couple aged 45 and up with no children, this is a perfect place to spend a week. The beaches are beautiful and uncrowded. The water is blue and warm. Plenty of great restaurants within a very short drive or trolley ride.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Dominica room and it was wonderful.

This is my second stay & I had the best time at Angelinos sea lodge!

My husband and I had such a wonderful time reconnecting at the unique property with its colorful islandish cottages. We plan on returning regularly (to try out the other 3 cottages), as we have filed this very special experience in life memories!
On top of being a great retreat; as always, Dick & Lynn were fabulous hosts, who were available to hang out & chat whenever we wanted to connect, but also left us to our privacy as well. Angelinos Sea Lodge is on a quiet romantic tropical beach with blue blue waters & the whitest sand. The property also has waterfalls, gigantic shade trees, & features their world famous treehouse perched over the tropical waters of the mexico gulf.

I felt like I was at Disneyworld, hanging out in a treehouse, walking from the rainforest type atmosphere to the trolley, lounging in a hammock, drinking champagne & relaxing!

I can't say enough good things! Thanks again!

Unit we stayed in was small but clean. Corps of Engineers was reconstructing beach while we were there (which we were not told upon reserving). Treehouse is just for looks - can't use. The WiFi was spotty at best. Owners were pleasant. If you're going there just to use the beach and walk to Holmes beach it's a good location with a good view. However, for the price I have a feeling you might be able to find a better deal/accomodations.

Room Tip: You may want to get a room on the 2nd floor because you can hear footsteps in the lower unit.

We stayed for two weeks and had an amazing holiday, view of the sea from the apartment and we watched the sun go down with a glass of wine each evening. lots of lovely restaurants locally and the people on the island are very helpful and friendly. Thank you to Richard and Lynn for sharing their thanksgiving with us, we had a fabulous time. We would recommend this to others looking for a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Barbados unit.

A family-run 4 unit rental directly on lovely Bradenton Beach. Lovely landscaping and amazingly decorated units. We had the smallest and least expensive unit, but it was fine for the 2 of us, and could sleep 4. The other units have lots more room and better views of the beach from their windows. The couple that own and rent the place do their own work, and you can tell by the decorations and features and upkeep. They have an amazing treehouse on the beachfront that is what attracted us to the place. The island has a free trolley that runs regularly, so you can easily do without a car, and there are more restaurants than I can remember. It's nice having a Publix less than a mile up the street. And the Robinson Preserve has more birds than we could count: Eagles, Ospreys, Wood Storks, Roseates, Herons, Egrets, etc. The owner of the unit even took me paddle boarding around one of the uninhabited islands with lots of different birds. It's not his fault I fell off four times!
