Wonderful Home Away from Home
I really want to give this property a 4.5 star rating, but wasn’t given the option. My family and I came down from Michigan for a surprise 75th birthday party for my father who lives here locally, and stayed at this property. We felt so at home and had such a wonderful time at this house! The location is sublime. It’s located in my favorite part of Anna Maria Island, on Bean Point and near some of my favorite places on the island……the City Pier, The Waterfront and Sandbar restaurants, and the Donut Experience, plus great shopping along Pine Ave…..the beaches near the Sandbar and near the pier are the only ones we ever go to while staying on the island. The house itself is spacious, clean and very inviting. It was completely accommodating for a family of four, and for my sister and her two kids who came and stayed for a visit. The downstairs ping pong table was a HUGE hit with all of us, and the perfect distraction during those typical Florida downpours that come on all of a sudden and end just as quickly. The only reason I did not give this property a perfect rating of 5 stars was because of each and every bed in the home. They are all rock hard and so uncomfortable! That was our only issue. My husband and I both suffer from back injuries and woke up a few days in complete agony. Thank goodness for the cool water of the pool and the jets in the spa, which gave some relief. If and when it’s time to upgrade the beds, I highly recommend at least one with a more cushion/pillow top mattress of higher quality. Other than that, we would recommend this home to anyone, and definitely make a return visit in the future!
