Our little Island is very quaint and quiet. This is not a party home and the law enforcement are very strict about the noise ordnance here. We have great neighbors that live here fulltime and want to keep them happy too :)
There is a Free Trolley for you to hop on for the entire Island. After you park your car you really don't ever need to crank it again :)
Other Things to Note
There is an outside shower area for you to rinse off after being at the beach. Beach chairs are there for you to use also :)
Please treat our home as you would yours. Kick your shoes off and stay a while :) We stay there often too as you can tell by the family pictures :) NO SMOKING indoors please.
Great location and a beautiful home. Clean, well-equipped with all you needed for a relaxing stay. The beach was less than a 5 minute walk....the water was perfect and sunsets stunning. The free Anna Maria Island shuttle stops on the corner near the house so that is a great convenience. We stopped by the owner's local restaurant (Tides Tables, right over the Cortez ave bridge) and the food was excellent.....take the time to meet Gwen and Bobby if you can.
We also grilled a couple of nights; there were a couple of Weber Kettles in their private back yard.....the local shrimp and seafood is unbelievable.
We plan on visiting again!
Since we arrived on Easter weekend, Gwen made sure she communicated with us about where the key would be. Gwen's
home is very comfortable and clean. My husband counted...
175 steps to a beautiful beach. On most days while we were
there, we had only a few people near us on a beautiful clean
beach. No trash, including beer/soda bottles and cans. This was
not our first visit to AMI, so we already had favorite restaurant
spots, but found a few more to try next time.
This was a great place to stay; very well appointed and in a perfect location. A stroll across the street took you to the beach and the tram stops were just outside. A half a mile walk along the beach took you to Bridge Street and a coffee. be sure to visit Gwen's restaurant-bar, Tide Tables at Marker 48; a short drive but it's hopping - ideal for a sunny early evening.
The house was great and just like the pictures. It was very comfortable and fully stocked for guests. It was just a couple minutes to the beach, and Gwen had plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, and an umbrella. We grilled a couple nights and ate in the screen room next to the grill. We were lucky enough to have perfect beach weather for our entire two week stay.
Gwen was very warm and welcoming, giving us a ton of tips on the neighborhood and the island. Her home was in excellent condition and was exactly as advertised. The cleaner that she uses is first rate and friendly. At one point during our month stay I managed to lock myself out of the house. Gwen responded to my text in about three minutes and helped my out of the jam. Much appreciated! Highly recommend her home.
We loved Homes Beach and the apartment was perfect! The hosts are wonderful and very engaging..We will be back again as soon as we can get back on their calendar!!!! The location was fun and the beaches beautiful...I would highly recommend this location, plus it was a bargain!!!!!
We had a great time at Ana Maria Island. The condo was really nice, close to the beach, had everything needed closeby. Gwen was very helpful and an excellent host! We especially liked the evening sun at the porch. It is close to a road, but we knew before and weren't bothered by the trafic. The bus (free) stopped right outside the house.
