About This Listing
2 bed/2bath condo on second floor fits up to four close to the gulf beach. Turnkey furnished and spruced by the owner. Shops and restaurants are close by. Trolley stop for free rides on the island is around the corner. Come and enjoy!
A small condominium building with only 20 vacation units, very well maintained, close to the beach and even close to shops and restaurants.
The island trolley brings you up and down the island without any charges - your car can have a vacation too!
This condo should be a home away from home for my guests. To keep this unit also also available for allergic people, pets are not allowed to stay here. And smoking isn't permitted as well!
This is a very pleasant apartment with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The balcony is lovely and the kitchen is well stocked with all essentials.
Carla's apartment was like staying at a friend's house - very cozy and nice, not "vacation rental" feeling at all. There is also a lovely view out the balcony that is not pictured. Just steps to the free trolley stop and across the street from Publix. A 15 minute walk to the beach without kids.
One should note that the rental company has some conflicting instructions for checkout, and you should be prepared to purchase detergent and cleaning supplies, if none are left from previous renters. Also leave time for doing a load of dishes and towels, as this is part of the protocol. Not a huge hassle but was a surprise for us.
Overall, this was a lovely property and we very much enjoyed our stay.
We enjoyed this cute condo on Anna Maria Island. It was super convenient to the grocery store and main road to get back to the mainland. Trolley stop right outside the complex. Not too convenient to walk to the beach with 2 little kiddos, but for just adults, it would be fine. The condo was comfortable and we were pleasantly surprised to find a travel crib and high chair for our use. Kitchen was well-equipped, but we couldn't find any trash bags when we were cleaning up. Make sure to bring or buy shampoo and laundry detergent as those amenities are not offered. All in all, a very pleasant stay. Thank you, Carla!!
We had a great relaxing stay at Carla's house. It is nicely located: walking distance of the beach and a large supermarket, and 5-10 min drive from nice restaurants. It is very cosy and well maintained, and we definitely enjoyed our time there.
Carla was very responsive when we had questions about the appartment prior to our arrival, and gave many great advice, which was really appreciated.
We hope to be able to come back soon!!
Very clean! Nice and simple place. You might want to get a place on the beach until you find out that this place is directly across the street from the market and the beach places don't look as nice as this one.
Thanks Ted for your review - you've hit the button because mostly everybody is asking if the condo is right on the beach because they think that is a "must have". But our complex is a very nice and secluded one, not directly ON the beach, but very close by. So I appreciate that you've found out what makes our location so special. Hope to welcome you and your family again on the island! Take care, Carla
Carla was a great host and her rental was exactly what we were looking for. It was in a very convenient location on Anna Maria Island and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip.
Thanks for the accommodations Carla!
P.S. if you're thinking of staying at Carla's place(s), make sure to visit Whitney beach a few miles south. It was the best beach we found in the area.

About the Host, Carla
I'm born in Germany, now living with my husband Niels in Hamilton, Ontario. When I came to Anna Maria Island the first time in 1996, I knew immediately - that is a kind of paradise. It was love on the first site!
And I would like to share my paradise with YOU!
