“Paradise at the Palm Tree Villas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Our family normally stay at the sister resort the Sunrise Garden Resort on Anna Maria which we love. When there was no room available at the Sunrise Garden Resort. Spence suggested the Palm Tree Villas.

It's in a quiet neighborhood, the landscape is wonderful the pool is awesome. We stayed in the two bedroom Condo. The Condo was clean and spacious and decorated nice. Each Bedroom had at flat screen TV in it. You couldn't ask for a better Kitchen area. The Dish washer was a bonus. We enjoyed the private patio in the back of our condo.

There's a g grill on site which is great for cooking out.
There's on site laundry which is great for people with kids, or who like to pack light.

The resort provided Wagons, Umbrella's, beach chairs and Beach toys. The resort is not on the beach but it's a brief walk to it. You can't get any closer. This is coming from a person who had two small children, wagon, toys, beach chair, beach tent and cooler to bring along. One of the things we enjoyed was the fact if we forgot something we could go back to the resort quickly.

The owners are a big part of why we continue to book our vacations at their resorts.
Spence and Jessie are both friend and warm people. Spence is easy to speak with you have questions or concerns. I can't say enough good things about them.
Andrea the resort manager greeted us with a smile when we checked in.

We're planning our vacation for next spring at the resort currently.
I will continue to recommend both resorts to my family and friends.

We had family join us this trip and they're looking at booking their spring break for next year too.

Unit 25 was very clean and comfortable. There are neighbors on the other side of the fence, on the next property, however, who made plenty of middle-of-the-night noise (loud conversation, loud radios and TVs, etc) several nights during our stay. Mattresses a little too soft, but not a big problem. Kitchen was very nice. Nice updated unit with modernized kitchen and bathroom.

Palm Tree Villas is a perfect, quiet island getaway! My husband and I stayed at the sister property, Sunrise Garden Resort, last March and loved it. When a room there was not available, Spence, the owner, suggested his other location. Amazing suggestion! GREAT location, a block from the beach (or 5 minutes from sunset), close to restaurants and stores and a block from a trolley stop. Our studio room was spotless, tastefully and completely furnished with a private patio for morning coffee. All beach items are provided including wagons, umbrellas, chairs and toys. The pool area is beautifully landscaped, very relaxing with covered lounge chairs and table and chairs. There is even a brand new gas grill for your use. We stayed for a week but we could have stayed forever. We HIGHLY recommend Palm Tree Villas and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Don't think you could choose a bad room...quiet location (slept with windows open at night), all...

This place has everything you could want in a weekend at the beach. The units are newly renovated with nice cabinets, granite countertops, dishwasher, flatscreen tv. My kids loved looking through the shells in the parking lot and finding sharks teeth. We got in the pool a little, but spent most of our daytime at the beach. My wife caught a flounder right in the surf. There are several wagons available for guests to use to pull beach chairs, coolers, etc across the street to the beach...only a couple hundred feet away. The beach access we used is next to Beach Bistro, one of the fanciest restaurants in Anna Maria Island. This was Martin Luther King weekend, and we were lucky to get a room at the last minute. We will definitely be back to enjoy AMI again soon.

My sister and I enjoyed several nights at Palm Tree. The villa was spacious, clean and private. We had our own private patio with access from the kitchen, dining . The grounds and pool were beautiful. Anna Maria Island is a more exclusive vacation destination, though very laid back and not pretentious in any way. That is why you pay a bit more . I told Spence , the owner that you can hear the ocean from the grounds and a short walk gets you to the beach. A quiet, beautiful beach . There are wagons, beach toys, chairs that are avail. to use . The villas are set amongst the residential area so if you are looking for quiet and lack of high rises and traffic, this is the place to go. I would also recommend renting bikes as you can do it cheaply and enjoy seeing the whole north end of Anna Maria by bike. I really enjoyed that !

Visited Anna Maria Island in December and thought a Spring Break vacation would be good here. Palm Tree Villas was all that we could have expected. As others have said from the time we stepped on the property it was an outstanding experience. Andrea, the manager, was very accommodating. She was more than willing to help us including printing boarding passes for our return trip. I am embarrassed to say that we locked ourselves out of the room our last night after a stroll on the beach and to watch the sunset with other vacationers. A quick phone call and we were back in the room. Private patio was especially nice for breakfast or relaxing. we loved being just a short walk to the beach. Conversations with neighbors made it feel homey. One man has been coming for 19 years. I couldn't tell the property was even that old. It was a perfectly peaceful experience. The pool was heated and quiet. A great escape from work and hustle and bustle of life. If only I had used sunscreen...ouch!
By the way, a trip to Minnie's for breakfast is almost a must. Great food.

My Boyfriend and I planned a weekend away this last December to Palm Tree Villas, and we were nothing short of impressed. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and as if we had our own private hideaway. The manager Andrea was especially accomodating and helpful as we could not make our check in time, and she made sure we could access our room. She had wonderful reccomendations on restaurants and shops that were exactly on point. The rooms were comfortable, very clean, and well stocked.I would reccommend this for anyone who is looking to get away long or short term. I enjoyed my time and stay so very much!_ Bailey<3Dan
