I have just returned from a stay at the Guest House located at 216 Pine Avenue. I was thrilled with the accommodations, service, location and overall experience of my stay. I live in the area, and love Anna Maria Island, and was looking for a nice get-away for my family...and was not disappointed. The staff was excellent. We were permitted to check-in early and check-out late, based upon the availability of our unit - this was truly appreciated. I had a bit of trouble operating the AC unit in the home, and a service man came right out to address (successfully) what turned out to be a simple programming glitch.
The home was spacious, beautiful, comfortable and tastefully decorated. There were plenty of linens, towels and beach/pool towels in the home. The kitchen was fully stocked with every imaginable gadget, and the beds were comfortable.
We had our own, heated pool - while small in size, it was the perfect place to rinse off the saltwater and cool down prior to heading into the house after a day at the beach.
This home is a 3BR/2BA with ample room for my family. It has a washer/dryer and two large porches (one overlooking the pool and the other overlooking the ever-adorable Pine Avenue).
Pine Avenue is the best place to stay on the island. Plenty of great restaurants, shops and specialty places (don't miss the made-to-order donut shop 2 doors down)!!! A very short stroll to the beach (right beside the Sandbar restaurant) with expansive beaches for everyone to spread out and not feel crowded.
The trolley runs every 20 minutes - it will take you up and down Anna Maria Island - and it stops a few steps away from 216. You can literally park your car upon arrival and walk or take the trolley to all of the must-see places on the island.
