We stayed at the Castnetter for our family vacation and loved it! We had the very greatest time! The owners were very helpful and informative with all questions we had about Anna Maria. Our room was very clean and cozy. We loved that it was located across the street from the clean beach and we were able to enjoy the sunset each night. There is a pool located right outside our room and that was where we spent most of our time because it was clean, refreshing, and provided many pool toys! There were bikes available for use to explore the island and all the shops in the area. Anna Maria Island is a gorgeous place to visit and we will definitely be staying at the Castnetter Beach Resort when we return. I give the Castnetter 5 stars!!

Absolutely outstanding. The unit is updated and offers EVERY possible thing you would ever need. You really do not have to bring anything. Alan and Donna were there and they are wonderful people. The location is perfect and I highly recommend Castnetter resorts to anyone. We have stayed in two other locations and this will be the one we return to. Alan and Donna thank you so much for letting us into your home. It was an honor to meet both of you and we can not wait to return.

Room Tip: Stayed in Unit #5. Fully stocked every appliance you need right down to towels.

This little villa was perfect for our little family of 4. It had plenty of space and the pool was excellent. The owners, Donna and Gary were VERY accommodating and helpful during our short stay. I wish we had been able to stay a few more days, that's for sure! This villa was a short walk over to Publix and CVS!
The only downside to this location was that the road in front of the villa was very congested and the traffic was crazy. Probably due to it being Spring Break for much of the South. We do not really like public beaches, so we did not even go across the street to the beach, we actually drove our van about a mile down the road and parked and walked to a more secluded little beach area. All in all, this was a great trip and a wonderful first experience on the Island for out little family!

We stayed in Castnetters #2, which, having never been to AMI before and not knowing the locale, turned out to be a bit of a surprise. This was a condo separate from the building you see on the website. Upon driving up, we weren't quite sure we were in the right location because it is in a one-story unit with two other condos and appears very small, almost as if it had been an economy three room motel at one point in it's history. HOWEVER, the interior of the condo is COMPLETELY updated, tasteful, very clean and comfortable. It was perfect for our "girl's trip" with three of us. We also liked that it was out of the hustle-bustle of the other property even though we enjoyed the north end (Castnetter's # 2 is on the south end) of the island the best.
Three disappointing factors we encountered making this a 4 rating rather than a 5:
1) The pool was located at the "main" Castnetter's property and hence never used it since it was a hassle to get there due to traffic and inconvenience ( I should have asked more questions).
2) The beach literally across the street from our condo is under construction, something we had not been informed of, but from the looks of it, perhaps has been for quite some time.
3) Despite this location "on the narrowest strip of land on the island," we were unable to see water out any window and there really was no access to nor a view of the bay due to other homes and condos.
None of the above spoiled our time though; we thoroughly enjoyed the island and the accommodations, Gary was easy to work with in booking, we loved the laid back atmosphere of AMI, and we all will return again! This is ALMOST like an oversized Key West, but to travel to, it is not nearly so difficult.

Room Tip: The interior of the condo itself was exceptional, just two recommendations: A full length mirror in one of the bedrooms More hangers Of course, these two suggestions come from three women!
