This is a lovely home--very clean, well appointed and comfortable. A great location, close to shops, restaurants and the beautiful beach. Alex met us upon arrival with a bottle of bubbly to start our vacation right. He was also helpful in suggesting restaurants for us to try. We had a slight issue with the garbage disposal that he responded to immediately and cheerfully. We were very satisfied and look forward to renting this house again!
We stayed 6 nights and had 8 guests (three kids under 7). The house is gorgeous. The ac blows cold (Alex controls the temp but can change it for you remotely). The private pool is so nice after long days at the beach. Great kitchen with nice appliances, comfortable beds and tvs in every room. I slept great when the kids let me. The trolley picks up so close and takes you pretty much anywhere you need to go on the island for free so you can skip the rental car.
One thing: the entire house is elevated above the garage. Only a problem if you have someone with limited mobility. The master bedroom and bath are on the same floor as the kitchen and living room. The other bedrooms/bath are up another set of stairs.
The more private beach is a 5 minute walk for adults but slower if you are dragging kids and gear. We actually split our time between the one you can walk to and the public one you drive to (which has gear to rent and bathrooms and showers). The beach you walk to has a lot less people but there were always some others around because that stretch of beach has a ton of rentals and motels along it. And one little section of the walk is on a very busy street on an s-curve. A little nerve wracking if you have little ones.
We loved the house and Alex was super quick to reply to anything we asked for. We will absolutely plan another trip back to AMI and will stay here! Thanks Alex and Elena.
Alex and Elena were very hospitable and the Happy Island Cottage a great place next to a great beach.
We - a family of 5 with 3 teenage boys- had a wonderful time during a 6 days stay in the 2nd week of March 2013 at Alex & Elena´s place.
Their house was superb, exactly the same as on the airbnb-pictures. Fully equipped, very convenient, perfectly clean and modern – there is nothing to add. Alex was there to greet us with a pie and a bottle of champagne when we arrived. He showed us where everything was and how the tech‘s work and what to do on the island. Thanks – from all of us - to Alex and Elena. You were great hosts! The best experience we had in Florida!
We can highly recommend you to anyone looking for a nice stay near to the beach on Anna Maria Island in the Holmes Beach Area with their family or friends. Hope to meet you again!

(nochmals auf Wunsch von Alex & Elena in Deutsch):
Wir waren Anfang März 2013 für 6 Tage mit 5 Personen zu Gast bei Alex & Elena und hatten dort eine rundherum schöne Zeit. Das Haus war ebenso einladend wie die Gastgeber Alex und Elena. Wir wurden trotz später Ankunft persönlich von Alex empfangen, der uns nicht nur das Haus präsentierte, sondern uns mit allen möglichen Freizeit-Informationen über die Umgebung versorgt hat. Die Entfernung zum Strand Holmes Beach ist kurz, zu Fuß etwa 10 min, falls Gäste mit kleinen Kindern kommen wollen - der Strand ist perfekt dafür geeignet - können diese mit dem hauseigenen Strandspielzeug im Handwagen dorthin gefahren werden. Ebenso sind Strand-Klappstühle vorhanden. Das Haus ist im Sinne des Wortes vollständig und modern eingerichtet und eignet sich für Paare ebenso wie für große Familien oder Gruppen von Freunden. Vielen Dank noch einmal von uns allen an Alex und Elena für diesen perfekten Ferienaufenthalt. Wir empfehlen Euch uneingeschränkt weiter und hoffen, Euch eines Tages wiederzusehen!
Thorsten & Familie.
Comfortable, clean ,attractive, spacious, lovely pool-- what more could you ask? The kitchen was so pleasant that we cooked more than we had expected to. We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much, Alex and Elena!
Wir hatten eine super Zeit in diesem wunderschoenen und sehr gepflegten Haus. Das Haus ist ganz neu und sehr sauber. Es ist das perfekte Urlaubszuhause fuer die ganze Familie. Den tropischen Garten mit dem geheizten Pool konnten wir sehr geniessen. Alex hatte uns zum Empfang sogar eine Flasche Champagner und einen Florida Keylime Pie aufgestellt - Alles in Allem, wir hatten eine unvergesslich schoene Zeit. Gerne empfehlen wir dieses Haus weiter.
My stay was absolutely wonderful. We booked on incredibly short notice and Alex and Elena were amazingly response and we were welcomed to an incredible house. It really felt like we were staying at home. Thanks!
