“Can't wait to return when it's warmer outside.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This was a very last minute side trip after the chaos of Disney World. We were able to snag a weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and the island. We had two small issues and Spence was there in a flash to resolve them. I've never seen such customer service. He was so nice, I felt like we had known each other for years. Our studio villa was spotless and we got to meet the housekeeper as she was finishing up mopping and getting it ready for our stay. She was very sweet and helpful. We loved the laid back atmosphere and the amenities. I just wish we could have stayed longer and had a little warmer weather to enjoy them. The pool felt warm but, unfortunately we weren't able to swim due to the cold snap and winds. So, I guess we'll just have to come back!

Thank you, Spence and staff for a wonderful stay. Palm Tree Villas is an ideal location for enjoying the beach (just across the street), walking to restaurants, and driving to nearby sights.
Our accommodations were roomy, spotless, and comfortable. We appreciated the access to extra towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas. Your restaurant recommendations were on target.

We are already planning our next trip to Anna Maria Island.

These are excellent cottages which are missing nothing in terms of equipment and appointment. We had #25 which had a double and a twin room. The place is comfortable, right close to the pool, walking distance to a wonderful beach, nothing has been forgotten here. WIFI works just fine, everything is clean and welcoming. A small and quiet location, full marks here on all fronts.

I like virtually everything about this place: Location (1 block from the beach; 1 1/2 blocks from the trolley; 10-15 minute bike ride to Anna Marie shops and pier); cleanliness; amenities; response of the owners to my wants/needs; gardens; "extras" like beach chairs, towels, umbrella, etc; quiet pool; size of the room. Everything.

I was only there one night in October as I booked on short notice and was only in town briefly but I did want to give them props for a great place. There was a welcome sign on the door of our room when we showed up with our name on it and the place is exactly as advertised. Clean, well maintained, and all the reviews on here are accurate.

This is the ultimate in a relaxing vacation. We went for a week after our daughter's wedding, and enjoyed evert moment! The villas are stocked with everything you could need, just add food & wine! Don't want to cook? Great eating minutes away! Super clean pool, a short walk, less than a block to the sand and Gulf beach....Heaven! We will be returning to this treasure! Thank You, Alex & Christine.

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...
