I can't tell you how much we appreciated the design and updates done onsite at the Rod and Reel. I cannot imagine a better spot for a multi-family vacation that was intended to facilitate strengthening ties, catching up with family spread across the country, and gathering frequently for meals, and group events. All this while still maintaining our private spaces as welll as adventures in boats and boards and bikes. We held a water olympics, an auction of grandparents 'treasures' with play money, cooking lessons of favorite grandmother recipes, ping-pong and corn hole tournaments, and aggravation and boggle tournaments. We watched old movies of the cousins together as kids, who now have kids of their own, and their kids now know their cousins. The remodeling done has created an absolutely beautiful space inside and out and the fence arrangement kept the little ones safe and parents alert but not constantly in alarm mode. Ty and his assistant were very helpful, readily available if needed, and went out of their way to make it a really carefree and special week. Anyway, kudos to the whole staff - it was everything we hoped for and more. 5***** easy!!!! Lisa P

A group of nearly 40 of us gathered from all around the country to honor the legacy of my grandparents. Suzette could not have been more helpful beforehand answering all our questions and concerns. The property and location were absolute perfection. Clean, updated, well designed, and well staffed. Ty and Tanye took care of any issues that popped up throughout the week quickly and unobtrusively. When we had a technical problem with old family movies that wouldn't work on their newer systems, Tanye let us borrow her personal computer! We could easily all gather in the large common spaces for family events and meals, but there was also plenty of privacy around the property as well for smaller groups to chat and have a quiet moment. No need for babysitters - the layout enabled the little ones to sleep in their rooms for naps or bedtime while the grownups gathered to play games and have late night chats. All the amenities were outstanding from the huge kitchen to the SUPs and kayaks to the beach toys to the ping pong table and bikes . . . we used it all and I just cannot say enough about how wonderful this place was. Morning runs to enjoy the sunrise, playing in the pool and beach all day with cousins and aunts and uncles, and evening kayaks to enjoy the sunset. Absolutely incredible! We hope we are able to return someday soon!

We traveled to Anna Maria Island for the first time this year and brought 2 (4,7) of our 3 kids. Stayed 5 nights in Suite 3 and can not say enough good things about this place. The concept of just 8 suites was really neat and we enjoyed resort life without all craze of resort size. There was never a rush to grab a seat at the pool/bar area and we got to meet some really cool families that were also staying there. Everyone respects the resort and treats the place like a one big shared home. There are plenty of kayaks, paddle boards, pool floats & chairs for guests and from what we experienced, everyone is willing to share even their own pool & beach toys. We left everything we bought at the pool for the next family to use because we loved that idea. Ty is the property manager and does a great job making sure everyone is taken care of. Suzette the owner was a gem to work with and I was understanding of anything we asked of her and did her best to accommodate. The location is a short walk and even shorter drive to the beautiful Bean Point Beach. Dining and shops are just a couple miles away and can be easily accessed by foot, bike or car. I recommend dining at the Waterfront, which is just down the street and if you're looking for some great lunch, check out the Rod & Reel pier. If you're planning on grabbing a couple cocktails too, the bar downstairs has prices you wouldn't believe. We also had a blast renting a couple poles from said Pier and did a little fishing with kids. We'll definitely be back with the whole family!

This place was so nice for the young kids to hang around the pool. One of the best pools and settings have ever seen. The free kayaks, bikes paddleboards all were very convenient. I loved we could walk 50 feet to the pier and watch the fisher men and saw 6 manatees swim under the dock!

Anna Maria Island is a little slice of perfect on Florida's West Coast. We found the Rod & Reel Resort on referral from a staff person at the Ugly Grouper Restaurant--also a great little find!--and were delighted with this totally renovated resort that wraps around a beachfront pool. While there is no restaurant on site, the Anna Maria Pier is steps away and offers a downstairs lively bar scene and excellent restaurant upstairs. There is a big TV in a poolside lounge where you could bring your own refreshments and relax. The whole resort only accommodates 30, so we were lucky on a "shoulder" weekend to find a room. While reservations and check-in arrangements are done through an offsite call, Ty, the onsite manager was very amiable and gave us a tour of the larger suites. We immiedately started planning a group getaway where we could invite friends to join us there. The oceanfront suite would make an ideal party and dining space--there is even an outside grill and a large privare patio area. I hesitate to share this great spot--I'd selfishly like to keep it our best-kept secret!
