Interaction with Guests
Here is a testimonial from a couple who have rented this house for the past four years: "We come every year and love the home as if it
were our own. It is perfect for having guests, as the setup is a split bedroom arrangement. The Master Bedroom is on one side of the house and the other bedrooms, bath are on the opposite side of the house. We can walk to the beach whenever we want; however, the Canal is perfect with a lovely back porch all screened. The house is fully stocked with all needs met and we love entertaining. Paul and Nancy are wonderful and generous to a fault. They have done a marvelous job of redoing this home. One of the things that make this house so enjoyable is we do not have to deal with a realtor. We deal directly with Paul and Nancy."
The neighborhood is a quiet residential area with all single family homes that are almost all primary residences.
The Anna Maria Island Trolley runs the length of the island and stops near all attractions, shops & restaurants . There are trolley stops for North & South approx two blocks from the home.
Other Things to Note
Minimum stay is 14 nights. Zoning allows home to only be rented once in a 30 day period but this will not affect any guest stay.
Hidden Cove House is best suited for mature vacationers that are not into partying as the neighborhood is not other rental homes. There is no smoking or pets as my son has asthma.
Cleaning Fees. The stated Cleaning Fees include only the cost of standard cleaning services engaged at the end of Guest’s rental term. Guests are expected to keep the home neat & tidy during their stay. The cleaning fee includes only the last night's bed linens and the departure morning bath towels. All other bed linen & towel changes are the responsibility of the renter to launder.
Everthing was perfect and even better than announced in the details.
Quick and easy communication either via email or phone.
We hope to be back quite soon
Paul does not live on Anna Maria Island but he gave us all the information that we needed to find the house and get in. He is a very nice guy to deal with.
The house is great, clean and very well equipped. We lacked nothing. The wifi and phone including long distance works really well. The location on the boat canal is lovely with birds and fish to watch. It is very quiet. We have traveled a great deal but this was one of our most relaxing vacations.
We rented two bicycles and spend a lot of time biking. There are many great shops and restaurants on the island. The beaches on the island are great for walking and collecting shells. We have been to Hawaii, Europe, and south east Asia and the beaches on Anna Maria are the best we have ever seen.
We would definitely rent from Paul again.
About the Host, Paul
We started to come to Anna Maria Island almost 15 years ago when we would charter a sailboat and sail from St Petersburg to Sarasota. We would always stop at Anna Maria, go to the beach, shop & eat and take the trolley to Publix for supplies. It soon became our favorite stop and we would come back again & again.
We bought our home on Anna Maria Island in 2009 and spent 2 years updating it.
We love to spend Spring & Falls on the Island and rent our property out in Winter & Summer.
