We just had a great trip to Anna Maria and this house was a wonderful place for out family. There were 10 of us , two were children and there was plenty of room and we did not feel crowded. The bedrooms were spread out so they were all very quiet. The central living area and kitchen was large with plenty of room for all of us and yet we were all together. The kitchen was large and pretty well stocked and the table was large and a pleasant place for meals. the whole wall of the living room was glass and opened up so you felt like it was part of the outside. The pool was great for kids and the area under the thatched roof was wonderful with comfortable chairs. The dock was close so some could fish and still be part of the group. The weather was cold while we were there but that is not something anyone could control. The house was very attractive and comfortable and I would stay there again without hesitation. We used the rental company recommended by Anna Maria Vacations and for very reasonable fees we rented beach chairs and mats and a wagon and baby equipment and they were all there when we arrived and they picked them up after we left, it worked very well and we were able to walk about 1 and 1/2 blocks to the beautiful beach to just enjoy it and watch the sunset each night. We also visited Pine Street for mexican food and ice cream and Bridge street for shopping and lunch. We did some fishing off from the piers and caught fish for dinner one night. The house was decorated nicely and in great condition. We hope to return sometime soon.
