“Perfect family vacation!”
Reviewed February 18, 2010

We stayed here the last week of July in 2009! It was perfect! Most of the crowds had gone and we felt like we had our own private beach! The location is great with the beach only a few steps away! We took our 4 children ranging in age 19-9...everyone had a fun time. We took the trolley to breakfast one morning which was fun. We saw a Tampa Bay Rays game and took a sailboat ride in Sarasota. Our kids even saw two dolphins while swimming in the ocean late one night! The sunsets are gorgeous here. Everything you need to prepare meals is in your Villa. I also loved the fact that we could check out all of our beach toys and a wagon to carry them! The washer and dryer on site made our vacation even more enjoyable.

This place is wonderful!! Private and cozy. The grounds are perfectly manicured and the villas are clean, updated, and spacious. The owners - Christy and Chuck are friendly and accomodating.

They have beach chairs, floats, umbrellas, and even yard carts to haul all your beach gear. Although the Villas are across the street from the beach, the walk is very short and a non-issue. The beach is quiet and private, with no public access from the street.

We used to stay at the Harrington House, but we will definitely stay at the Island Garden Villas for now on.

We visited island garden villas on Anna Maria Island in September this year (2008). It was exactly as the web site described it. six beautiful villas surrounding a well maintained tropical garden. We stayed in no. 104 which is a two bed two bath villa. Everything was pretty much perfect and for the seven nights we were there it became very much like home away from home. The beach is literally across the road, close enough to walk back and fore if you forget something. It is situated just a short walk from shops, Hurricane Hanks and a trolley stop which will take you to either north or south of the island.
Chuck & Christy are gracious hosts without being too intrusive, they were always available for help or advice.
The only downside is the fact that there is no pool, there is a hot tub there which would have been adequate for us but because we were there in September the water in the tub was too hot to be comfortable. I would highly recommend both island garden villas an Anna Maria Island. We will certainly be returning next year.

Stayed for 3 nights in one of the villas - very comfortable and spacious with lots of nice touches. Everything is thought of and they are very well equipped from the kitchen equipment to the dvd collections.

A very quiet hideaway with villas set within the beautiful gardens with patio areas and a shared hot tub. Magical at night with all the fairy lights.

Beach just across the quiet road - endless white sands and beautiful sunsets - and very peaceful and quiet - no crowds! you could not ask for more. They have chairs, umbrellas etc you can borrow for the beach and if feeling energetic bikes for a morning cycle on the beach.

A few restaurants and shops within walking distance, or a very close drive to a bigger selection of restaurants and supermarkets.

Ideal for chilling out or exploring nearby Tampa etc.

Would definately recommend.
