I am so glad that I read the last review after we started our stay at Endless Summer, and not before. We had no problem with the beds -The Queen size bed was very comfortable, and there were no complaints from our guests regarding the twin beds. I love the layout of the house, the sliding glass doors open onto a large screened in porch, where we had our morning coffee when the weather permitted. The house is dated, but really you come to Anna Maria for the beach and sun, so some old furniture and wallpaper is secondary in my opinion. The location was wonderful, on a very quiet street with very friendly neighbors. Pine street is a short drive away, or a good walk if you are so inclined. The beach was a 10 minute walk away. The only issue for older people might be the fact that you have to go upstairs to get into the house, which is a pain with groceries. The two downstairs rooms are useless as there is no bathroom, and you must go outside to access the main living areas. The musty smell continues. We didn't need to use these two rooms so this was not a problem for us. We love Anna Maria Island and can't wait to return again.
The house was comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. There is only two complaints we had about the house itself. First was that the master bedroom only had a double bed not a queen which I imagine if I had read the description closer I would have known that going into it. The second and biggest complaint we had was over the USELESS game room. It is isolated, musty and uninviting and to be honest it was a massive disappointment! Let me tell you it is false advertising for them to list these pool table and foosball table as amenities and features of the rental. They ought to just gwelsh next step and list a fitness gym as a feature because you have to use staircases to access the house or the pool. Back to the point- These games are NOT pool tables- they are kids novelty games. Only 6 and 7 year olds would find any enjoyment out of these and I imagine that would be short lived because of the dreary feel of the room (no windows) and the separateness from all the other happenings at the property. I normally would not care so much about something like a pool table. However, we specifically chose this house over others because of these misleading claims. We were looking forward to hanging out at night with an extra option besides swimming in the pool. We definitely felt duped when we unlocked the door to that game room. And if things had been correctly presented we definitely would have gotten a house closer to the beach with a 'heated' pool and maybe a queen bedroom set in the master bedroom.
