“Escape Pittsburgh Weather”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I never wrote a review until now. The owner Spence, manager Andrea (w/cool dog Bailey) and housekeeper Shawna all made my stay very nice and friendly at this hidden gem. I've never stayed at a place where management went out of their way to greet me! My unit was a one bedroom suite, everything was completely updated with quality amenities and super clean inside and among the grounds. The complex is located on a quiet residential street just one block from the Gulf beach. I like being at a quieter end of the end of the island, unlike the more commercial end by Bradenton Beach. Plenty of good restaurants and small shops so you never have to venture far. I found this on TripAdvisor and never stayed on the island before. The rave reviews were all what they said it would be! I'll be back to Palm Tree Villas next time!!

Room Tip: If a Suite is too much room, the Studio is a good value using a smaller kitchen and bedroom/living r...

I just got back from a 4-day trip to Anna Maria Island and we stayed at the Palm Tree Villas. I stayed in the Studio room and I could NOT have been more pleased!!! Everything was clean and new! Bathroom and floors were very clean, and kitchen area looked brand new. I think the main thing I noticed was that this property was very well cared for by its owner. And they think of everything! The room came with beach chairs, a beach umbrella and you could use towels for the beach too! It was really so helpful! (Also it had outdoor shower heads to spray off the sand from the beach.) We had to contact the owner twice to ask him a few questions and he was incredibly accomodating and helpful. This island is the perfect place to go for a few days to relax and enjoy the beautiful sun and the Palm Tree Villas was the perfect place to stay. It's on a quiet street, only a block away from the beach. We simply loved it. I can't wait to plan another trip back.

We returned with some trepidation - after many visits under Ashok and Peggy's ownership we were unsure if standards under new ownership would be the same. Well, they were, so for anyone else wondering we would recommend a return visit! As always the rooms were spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything we could think of and more, the pool area was relaxing with modern loungers, chairs and umbrellas, the private small patio areas attractive and quiet. Also a large bbq grill, although we never get around to that as we have a long list of lovely restaurants to visit! The little pull along wagons with beach chairs and sunshade were still there. In other words there is still no reason to look elsewhere for the perfect accommodation, location and genuine warmth and Southern hospitality from the owners and staff. Thanks to everyone for another wonderful visit, see y'all again soon!

Just got back from a four-night stay at Palm Tree Villas. We have three small children and were very comfortable in a two bedroom villas. Everything was super clean and it felt like home as soon as we got there...the owner had thought of literally everything, and for a young family that isn't easy to do! We made the easy walk to the beach every morning, and spent a lot of time at the pool in the afternoons. We saw the owner, Spence, on several occassions, and the whole time we were there it really felt as if we were staying at a friend's place. Can't recommend it highly enough.

The beaches are beautiful, We are looking forward to you next visit and will Stay at Palm Tree or their sister resort on the Island....... I hope to be a regular : ) Thnx for a great vacation......

Our trip in July was so fantastic, Palm Tree Villas is now our home away from home. I am an Island boy and this location is the closest that I have come that reminds me of Jamaica. It hits the spot and we just loved it. The owner Spence and his lovely wife were exceptional people, it was such a pleasure to be in their company and stay at their absolutely comfortable property. It surpassed our expectations as I am a packer and we took our usual stuff, and upon arriving we were surprised that we did not have to take most of our travelling equipment, they have it all there. We only had to take our food, everything and I mean everything for the comforts of travelling to a beach town is there for the clients use, and I mean great stuff. Beach chairs, umbrellas, wagons to pull stuff, great BBQS, All utensils, pots, pans,and plates. These villas are wonderful. bright and sincerely beautiful and we recommend to all. Spence we thank you for an awesome time, and much blessings to you and your family, just keep the going, going. ONELOVE.

Room Tip: Just go and experience it.

This is one of the best places we've ever stayed at! Clean, quiet, plenty of room and everything you need for fun at the beach is provided. Each unit has an outdoor patio with shower as well as a wagon and beach chairs for your very short walk to the beach. Not located right on the beach but it's only about a 2 minute walk.
The beaches on Anna Maria are gorgeous! We walked for miles on the soft, white sand.

There's no need to rent a car because the island is so small. We rented bikes for $30/week and cruised everywhere! It was a nice way to work off the key lime pie I ate everyday from Hurricane Hanks!
The pool is small but very clean.

This was an anniversary, adults only trip for us, however, we are planning on going back with our kids ASAP!
