  • Great house and location


    We were there for a month. Quiet neighborhood, awesome owner. Highly recommend.

  • Perfect location!


    This sweet house was the perfect location to walk across the bridge onto Anna Maria Island. While staying on AMI can be very pricey, this house was quite reasonable and didn’t lack anything that we needed. There is a very nice bar/restaurant just a block away where I was made SO welcome! It felt very much like a neighborhood. Ray, the owner, was responsive when I had a small issue/question and went out of his way to make sure that I was satisfied. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to get away for a long weekend! We will be back.

  • Clean, quiet & convenient


    Roy was an attentive host, bringing us towels the first day of our stay. It is less than a 30 minute walk over the bridge to the beach or Bridge Street, which we did often to avoid traffic. Very quiet street abutting the RV park. Convenient walking access to restaurants and bars nearby. House itself was very clean and had all the requisite amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be back if it fits our budget.

  • Perfect location


    This house was in the perfect location for us to enjoy Anna Maria island and the town of Cortez. Everything was as described. We had an excellent time exploring the area. Walking distance to all the great sea food restaurants. Can’t wait to get back.
