“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I hesitate to write good things about Palm Tree Villas because we'd hate not to be able to rent there again if it got too busy. This is a small gem with a limited number of apartments. It's just (literally just) down the road from th a lovely beach (and from the Beach Bistro - a fabulous restaurant). We rented a two bedroom, two bath apartment for ourselves - just the two of us. The kitchen had everything we need and the owner even purchased a coffee grinder for us when we realized there wasn't one and we had bought coffee beans.
The master bedroom had a king size bed - very comfortable and the second bedroom had twins. We turned this into our beach changing room. Each room also has a flat screen TV. The apartments surround a beautifully appointed courtyard with a small heated pool. Have to admit we also had pretty great weather. We spent a portion of each day walking the beach and an hour or so swimming and sunning at the pool. This is also a great location to enjoy Anna Maria. Not far from a number of restaurants and a good walking area. Palm Tree Villas was a perfect place to stay and we had a perfect vacation.

Palm tree Villas was the perfect set-up for our family of 4. The room was really nice and super clean. They provided everything we needed to be comfortable. We really enjoyed our short walk to the beach and short walk to the free trolley stop. Thank you, Spence for always making us feel so welcome when we arrive on the island.

Tis was our second trip to Palm Tree Villas, first since Spence tool over the property and even though I didnt think they could improve, they have! The landscaping is just beautiful and the the pool area has a much more tropical feel, love the new pavers. Spense was able to squeeze us in for one night on New Years Eve, a bit of magic as everything else was booked and we had an awesome time. I love the little carts that are available to take all your things down to the beach and the beach is just a skip and a hop away. We enjoyed the sunset and my friends from Tennessee were certainly impressed with our choice of accomodations. We'll be back again, you can count on it!

After a disappointing one night stay at the Harrington House , I rented this 2 bedroom apartment
for 2 nights to continue our business meeting.
I can only say it was wonderful .,so much less than they charged me for that tiny room at the Harrington House .Very clean , flat screen TV's in bedroom & living room, big kitchen ,
very quiet , the pool was great , we where the only ones using it.
The beach right across the street. What a treat , the management was friendly and made sure I was happy. I have directed my friends to this wonderful lodging and would love to stay there again.

Room Tip: big pool , very quiet , just a few steps to the ocean

We just came back from a fabulous stay at Palm Tree Villas. Spence and his team couldn't have made us feel more welcome from the initial contact by phone just a week ago to meeting him on site. What a perfect home from home! The villas are clean, roomy and equipped with everything you could need. Shame about the cold weather but the kids enjoyed the beach anyway! Thank you Spence, we will be back for sure...

Room Tip: Room 24 is perfect for a family of 4!

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.
