About this listing
A comfortable 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is in a great location; a quiet residential area yet within easy walking distance to grocery, pharmacy and restaurants. In addition, there is a trolley stop directly in front of the complex, along with a heated pool. About 4 block walk to the beach.
Dead-end street, no through traffic
Very clean spacious 2 bedroom 2 bath. Just as described a few blocks from beach. Carla as quick to respond to all communication. I had forgotten instructions and she helped us out immediately. I would recommend this listing.
Host was very friendly until we booked - then couldn't give us the time of day. She did not make us feel welcomed - short and unfriendly when I called her with questions before departure.
Key pick up and drop off at rental agency was easy (plus).
Place is decorated with furniture that wouldn't be good enough for a resale shop -it's from the 80s and shows it. The living room furniture is dirty, stained, worn - pillow (website hidden) in living room was big (plus). The pillows on master bed smelled used when we arrived so we changed them. Carpet very dirty and gross.
All 3 Beds and all pillows very uncomfortable. Master tub didn't drain, toilet ran and light was burnt out. Other shower was unusable because faucet was broken.
Deadbolt lock doesn't work from outside. Kitchen not stocked well.
If you have problems, you are instructed to call rental agency. They were responsive, but who wants a handyman coming into the place when you are on vacation. And the handyman left a mess! NOTHING supplied - 1 roll of TP in each bath, 1 garbage bag - not even a sponge was there - you need to buy most everything.
The complex pool is small and full of people.
It's close to Holmes Beach and Grocery Store - just cross a really busy street. Other places are closer to beaches and there's a free trolley if you have to go to store or drive and park in the lot.
Don't stay here - it's a rip off!
I'm shocked to read this Kristi. And I was only short on the phone because you reached me while I was driving. I'm going to forward your review to the management company because me and them want to know what our guests feel. And each rental condo or house only provides the basic amount on toilet paper and other utilities. March/April are the busiest months on the island and you can't expect empty streets nor pools nor shops or restaurants. I appreciate constructive and effective reviews so that deficiencies can be eliminated (which will be immediately done after we get notice of it). But your comments are totally unfair. I do remember our discussion about the rental fee which was too high for you; you wanted to get a 5-star-accommodation for a price of a room in the YMCA. Don't let her book your home - she will always find something to complain.
What a wonderful condo! It was perfect for my adult children and me with more than enough bathroom space, a kitchen well-enough equipped that we were able to put together a couple of "family meals" and enjoy each other as we would not have been able to do in a restaurant. Clean up instructions were clear and doable. And I LOVED the porch! It is screened, has a fan, and a great view of the mangroves. I'd go back just for the porch! Carla was a terrific host. Communication was quick and easy, even one last minute (while I was packing) query about availability of beach towels (answer: yes). Rent with confidence!
We would love to come see you again. We loved our whole experience! Sister-in-law, Janet would like to come and rent the very same condominium. We thought our accommodations were the best of the family's. Wedding was great too.
Would also like to say that we saw our niece by marriage,she lives in the DC area and she knows you CEO-that was nice.

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!
