** If you would like to have your pool heated, we kindly ask that you please contact AMV at least 10 days prior to your arrival so that it ensures us ample time to fulfill your request. We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools and pool equipment are closely monitored by the pool company for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with- most of the systems are locked for this reason. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs. Our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated. However, please be aware that we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to draw down and a pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool, which may take several days. Ultimately, these situations are beyond our control. Other issues such as severe weather conditions, equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes or other items do happen for time to time. Please be aware that AMV cannot issue refunds during your stay based on acts of God. However, please know that in the rare event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, AMV will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we certainly want you to enjoy your heated pool and Florida sunshine to the fullest extent possible! Anna Maria Vacations thanks you in advance for your understanding on this issue.

The layout was just perfect, since there are two complete living areas. We had 5 couples, so no one ever felt crowded. The bay view is wonderful, sitting out by the water, watching boats on the ICW. Just a short walk to the pier and shops and restaurants of Bradenton Beach, plus a short walk over to the beach. I have already addressed with housekeeping that I did not think it was adequate for what we were paying. The upstairs kitchen counter was dirty, greasy, and covered with crumbs! Some major appliances were in need of repair ( I reported them, so hopefully they have been attended to). We had constant problems with the pool and hot tub, with no instructions anywhere. We awoke the next to last day to an empty pool! Even the pool maintenance people were baffled.
So, the house itself is great; location great; nicely decorated, quiet. The housekeeping and maintenance need improvement. The owners could add some simple little extras for comfort. For example, each closet had about 3 hangers…we were there for a week! The pillows were old and pathetic…truly need replaced. Upstairs bathroom had no shelf for soap or shampoo; you had to set it on the shower floor. How much could a little shelf that fits over the shower head cost? There were no dish towels, sponges, or dish cloths…maybe that explains the dirty counters. One dishwasher pod and small bottle of dish soap would be so helpful until you can get to the store. *I really hope that the owners and management company read these reviews, because all of these negative comments could be remedied so easily. We had a beautiful week weather wise, so throughly enjoyed our time on the island.

There were 11 of us (all adults) that stayed at The Bayfront (9 of us for the entire week) and all of us loved it. I did a LOT of research before deciding on this property. I wanted something on the water yet somewhat private and the majority of the larger homes on the island have backyards that all the neighbors can look right into. This house was perfectly situated right next to the marina on the water and the backyard is surrounded by very lush foliage. You really feel secluded. We could hear the marina workers at times but all of us agreed that it wasn’t a big deal at all. They close at 5pm so after that it was quiet. It seems that the overwhelming majority of the neighbors were permanent residents and they were very quiet. We never heard them but saw them fishing a few times.
As far as the house goes, the layout is perfect for a large group of adults. Everyone had their own nice sized bedroom and having two kitchens worked out great. Plenty of fridge space plus there is a wine fridge under the upstairs kitchen bar. Unfortunately for us the faucet in the downstairs sink broke the Thursday of the week we were there. They sent a plumber out to fix it that day but it needed a new faucet and they were unable to get one installed before we left. The second two days it was a pain not having one but at least an effort was made to fix it as soon as possible. One important thing to note as well, everyone liked their beds! This is kind of unusual but they were all comfortable. The linen service worked out nicely too although we did all bring our own beach towels but they did have them available. (This worked nicely on the last day so by the time we left no one had a wet towel) We did use the washing machines and the fact that there are two sets is nice.
The kitchens are nicely equipped. My husband is a chef so he brought a bunch of knives and some other kitchen tools. We noticed they could use some more knives but other than that what they had should suffice for most. There are two coffee makers and with a house full of adults, it was a necessity in the morning.
The table out back was where we spent the majority of our time. The chairs were comfortable. We loved all of the adirondack chairs but they are difficult to move around. (They’re not going to blow away that’s for sure) The dock had a bench which was a nice touch. I was worried that the pool was going to be too small but to be honest it was perfect. It was kind of nice that it wasn’t all spread out. There were 4 of us floating in the pool (we rented 4 of the nice floaties from Fun-N-More rentals) and there was plenty of room. The spa did get warm if you left it on for a while. The pool guy came twice while we were there (Tuesday and Friday) so it was well maintained. We did see dolphins from the house which was fun.
While not on the beach side we decided that this wasn’t a problem since you don’t get fried in afternoon sun. When we were there (April) the pool was in the sun till about 3:30 in the afternoon. You had your choice with the lanai of being in the sun or not. On the beach side there isn’t much choice. We just walked the 3 and a half blocks to go watch the sunset when we wanted to. It was perfect.
All in all everyone decided that the house could not have been more perfect for our needs and we’d all do it again in a heartbeat. Heck, if I had the money I’d buy it since it is for sale.
