This small group of one level villas met our every need. Chuck, the property manager was helpful beyond measure. Our villa was #106,very private, with gorgeous landscaping to its entrance. The courtyard, just 20 paces away, was spectacularly beautiful and calming. The TV was a bit difficult to manage - we'd have preferred streaming (netflix, amazon, etc) capabilities when the weather kept us indoors, but these are small potatoes compared to the immaculate and beautiful space and grounds.

My husband and I are just back from a two week stay at the Island Garden Villas. What can we say except what a wonderful place. We stayed in villa 106 which is one of the one bedroom villas. When we arrived the place was spotless. The owners Christy & Chuck have thought of everything to make your stay just like home from home. There is also beach equipment available if you want. Which was great for the likes of us who flew to our destination. The surrounding gardens are so peaceful & relaxing, a wonderful place just to sit and read a book or have a drink. The owners Christy & Chuck could not be more helpful or accommodating, they are truly two very special people. The beach is a two minute walk away & restaurants only about five minutes away, so villas are nice and central. There are free trolley stops close by too. Would definitely recommend & we will definitely return.

My husband, a friend, and I stayed a week, then added three more days to our stay. We immediately made reservations for the holidays! All of the previous reviews are 10O% correct! It is difficult leaving Villa 104. My husband would be perfectly happy to live here, sit on the porch, and listen to the inviting fountain gurgle. I can hardly get him to pack up. He is at peace. I am a gardener so looking at all of the plants is a joy! Meeting Christy and Chuck has been like meeting long lost relatives. What a joy! Such wonderful people!

We spent a week on Anna Maria Island and were fortunate that a cancellation opened a space. We wish we could have stayed longer. We were in 106 which faces the road. Traffic is fairly regular but the island has a quiet law for 10pm and later. Traffic dies down. There is a full sized refrigerator with an auto ice maker, an electric range and oven and dishes and glasses. A beginning supply of paper products is provided so plan to purchase some at the local store for your stay over a weekend. There is a sitting area with television, a kitchen and dining, a bedroom with a king and the bath, shower only. Bring your own supplies as this is not hotel style with shampoo supplies and the like. There is a lovely courtyard with a fountain and beautiful landscaping. Within the courtyard you cannot hear any road sounds. There are free bikes to use and plenty of equipment for the beach and grills off the courtyard. There is a hot tub that we did not use. Most of the guests are repeaters so it is difficult to get any space during high season. Chuck and Christy are lovely hosts.

What a wonderful place! Every attention to detail is in place, very private feeling, and perfectly clean. Steps from a very private section of beach, with beach wagons and toys available. We really enjoyed riding the bicycles around the island.

My family and I had the wonderful opportunity to stay here in one or their 2 bedrooms villas and it did not disappoint! The villas themselves are cute and provide everything you need. The landscape is absolutely exquisite! The owners are so friendly and hospitable and make your stay even more enjoyable. The beach is literally right across the street and it is at a place where it is not very busy at all and they have all the chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, coolers, wagons, etc. you could need to head to the beach. I hope we get to stay here again as we were truly blessed!

Island Garden Villas - a secluded oasis away from the hectic tourist areas, but just steps from the beautiful Anna Maria beaches. The Villas offer true relaxation with every amenity you could possibly need. (even bikes) The garden area is a true work of gardening art. Christy and Chuck, the owners, are very gracious hosts. We liked it so much, we hope to come back for a longer stay.

We loved our stay in a charming, clean, comfortable cottage at Island Garden Villas, located steps away from the beach. The postcard-perfect lush surroundings remind us of Key West . . . Hemingway & Bogart would surely feel right at home. We recommend Island Garden Villas.

There are 6 villas here and you should book them far in advance and there is good reason for that. Each villa is different, but all are nice, having seen and/or spoken to other guests (past and present). We stayed in villa #101 (2 bedrooms) and this is regarded as the favourite and most sought after (based upon what I was told and by how far in advance #101 is typically booked). I can see why, as it is very well decorated and serviced. The landscaping is very tropical and well-done. The owners are outstanding and extremely accommodating and friendly. There is a hot tub, laundry facilities, sitting area with fountain, and plenty of beach items to use free of charge (i.e.: beach chairs, bicycles, water toys, etc.). Although these villas are not directly on the beach, they are immediately across the street from the beach and to beach access. We went to the beach from our villa every day and evening (fab sunsets!) and it is literally a 2 minute walk across the street to said beach. Shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. are very close by too. Would not hesitate to stay here again, at any of the villas here. Brilliantly done!

Wonderful getaway for me and my husband for one week on Anna Maria Island. Lovely apartments, beautifully decorated, clean, private, well stocked kitchen and bathroom, peaceful beautiful gardens with a fountain surround the villas. This is an excellent location close to many of the top rated restaurants, but in a quiet residential neighborhood. The beach is directly across the street through a short beach path and it is a really nice wide beach and not too crowded. We really appreciated having available many beach chairs, boogie boards, noodles, umbrellas, and nice large wagons to transport them. Central air conditioning working very well and quiet. Bed very comfortable. Everything was in in excellent condition. We would definitely stay again. No complaints about anything.
