“Wonderful as always!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This is my third time to stay at Harrington House and it was wonderful, as always. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the beach location is amazing, and the breakfasts are delicious! The staff is so friendly and accommodating - they even have bicycles to borrow for a ride around the island. During your visit, be sure to stop in at Bella Mia on Manatee Ave. for an authentic and delicious Italian meal.

We stayed three nights in the Veranda room in late October 2012. The weather was perfect as was this B&B. Breakfast was very tasty and the service was excellent. Being right on the beach was wonderful as were the nightly sunsets with a bottle of wine from our balcony. Not a hopping location, but perfect for a relaxing weekend away or a week of relational refreshing. Perfect for a romantic trip.

Room Tip: The veranda room is slightly more expensive, but the huge room, king size bed and sunset balcony are...

Harrington House was well above our expectations! We felt like family from the moment we entered the dining room to check in--the entire staff is so friendly and helpful. We stayed in a bungalow that was modern but with beautiful beach decor. The breakfasts each morning were wonderful--made to order and with yummy home-baked sweet breads. Took one of the available bikes for a ride on the island, and then came back and relaxed on the "private" beach on the B&Bs ample beach chairs. Such a relaxing trip!

We stayed 3 couples in Dodt 3, it is a lovely 3 bedroom suite with an fantastic wiew over the Gulf. Plenty of space, kitchen, dining room and living room, 2 bathrooms and a big balcony with stairs down to the beach. The breakfast was excellent, fresh and served by a welcoming staff. We only stayed one night, but we are definitily coming back!

Harrington House is a gem set beachfront on Holmes Beach. Spent two nights with another couple staying in DODT 2, not sure what this refers to but it is the two bedroom ground floor suite with patio and direct access onto the great beach. Despite planning on using the free bikes and kayaks, we ended up just hanging around on the beach, taking the free trolley bus up to the pier, and doing nothing else - I guess that what Anna Maria Island does to you! So good to sit and have a great, freshly cooked breakfast, served by attentive and friendly staff and then return to your serviced accommodation. Strongly recommend Harrington House - tried a couple of other B & B on the island but this place sets the standard.

Room Tip: Nothing better than walking out from your rooms onto the beach!!!

We had the opportunity to stay at the Harrington House B&B at the end of Oct 2012 and I have to admit, we found a gem. The accomadations were exquisite and the breakfast was 4 stars! We were treated like members of the family unlike any other resort that we have vacationed at. The view of the ocean right from our balcony was fantastic and there were very few people on the beach. It was like we had the whole place to ourselves. Bikes were readily available and beach chairs and umbrellas were instantly available. We never had to worry about "reserving" our beach chairs. We also took out the kayaks and all of this was included in the price. We had never stayed in a B&B before this but now, after staying at the Carriage House #2, we will definitely be going back. Our time at Harrington House was restive and peacefuland included many long walks on the beach. Our favorite part of our stay was sitting on our balcony overlooking the ocean and sipping a glass of wine as we watched the sun set. What a fabulous getaway!!!

Room Tip: Carriage House #1 or #2 give great views of the Ocean!

Accommodations, location, and ambience all the best! Loved the Primrose room's oceanfront view. Cleanliness of the home and location are superb. Friendliness of the staff and their willingness to meet your needs are exceptional.
