“Perfect Home Away from Home”

We had a very enjoyable week at this vacation home. Plenty of space to roam and have family relaxation time. We had so much fun in the pool. The hot tub was so relaxing in the evening after a day at the beach. The walk to the beach is short and having the trolley to pull our things in was so convenient.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are so pleased you had a great week, enjoying our spacious home and new pool and spa. Thank you also for the follow up email and your additional feedback - repeated here:

''We loved the area and would definitely stay at your house again. I forgot to mention how much fun we had in the pool. Also it was so nice and quiet at 10:00 at night. The decor of the house was lovely. Every time I looked around I would notice a picture or something on the wall that I didn't notice before. I would definitely recommend your house''.

As owners, we try very hard to make each stay a memorable one for our guests and welcome your return visit whenever you decide to come again.

This home looked great from the online pictures but was even nicer in person. Mike and Lesley went out of their way to accommodate our young family by purchasing a highchair and pack n play prior to our arrival. It was extremely clean and very tastefully decorated. The location was great with just a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this home again when we return to AMI.

we should declare an interest in that Mike and Lesley are long standing friends nevertheless this is, the website suggests a jewel of a property. We had a week with my husband's sister and her husband. Our intention was not to do very much and this is a perfect house not to do anything much in as it is so comfortable and welcoming. There is everything one might need, it is clean and spacious, big enough to share with family and still have some privacy,in a lovely position close to the beach and other amenities but quiet and private. All in all very highly recommended

We ate in mostly but the sandbar restaurant was lovely for a leisurely lunch and we got takeaway from Bonnie and Cheryl's Italian on pine - if you do that though order well in advance to get the choice of the full menu.

The owners, Mike and Lesley Crowther were wonderful to deal with
before, during and after our two week stay at their home. The house
was immaculate and had everything we could have needed during our
stay. Large bedrooms and baths with excellent beds and showers. The
kitchen and laundry room appliances were all in new condition. We
found ourselves wanting to eat in most of the time as the house was so
comfortable to just hang out in as a family (with our daughter and
grandson). This rental, unlike most you see on the web, more than
matched the pictures posted on the site. After checking out other rentals on Anna Maria Island, this house was the nicest, most reasonably priced property I researched. Pulling into the large clean and secure garage with it’s door opener made this house far more easier to park than any other property I saw. The location was very convenient when walking to the beach and getting around the island as well as traveling south toward the Bradenton/Sarasota area, which you will often do when staying on Anna Maria. The owners tell me they are putting in a pool/hot tub, which will make this the finest rental from the north end of Anna Maria to the the south end of Long Boat Key.

We are delighted that you and your family had such a happy time at our vacation home.

The luxury pool/hot tub should be installed by August 2014 as plans have been finalized.

We aim to please!
