Perfect family getaway

This place was beyond perfect for our family vacation and escape from the snow and cold of Minnesota. A short walk to the white sand beach, a private heated pool, balconies for outdoor meals, grilling, close to shops and restaurants, it had it all. Most importantly, Jen and Joe were kind, gracious hosts, who never hesitated to make sure our stay was a wonderful one. There was an issue with the water heater while we were there and Joe made it his priority to get people out there and get it fixed in under 24 hours. We were all very impressed and thankful for that! My kids are 4 and 6 and this was their first big trip anywhere and I cannot fully describe how much fun and memorable our time was at this beautiful property. I will be forever grateful for this experience and sincerely hope we can return again soon.

Great family vacation

Jen & Joe are great to work with. Very clean & nicely decorated. Well equipped inside and out with plenty of stuff for the beach. Great location with easy access to the beach & walking distance to some restaurants. This was our second consecutive year and we will be back next year!

5-Star Vacation!

Our family of 10 thoroughly enjoyed this Avenue C property. There was plenty of space for togetherness as well as space for quiet reflection and privacy. Its proximity to the beach was wonderful for watching the sunsets, building sand castles, and, as we are from Illinois, soaking up some much needed sunshine and warmth. The pool was the perfect size for our young children to practice their swimming skills, and a blessing from the chillier waters of the ocean.

The kitchen was very well appointed with all necessities and appliances.

The perfect vacation for a family and friends1 5/5 Stars

First, I will start with Jen and Joe before I review their home... Jen and Joe were wonderful hosts... they met us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the home. Throughout our stay they were available to answer questions, provide recommendations, and even came out to support us at our flag football game. I couldn't have asked for better host. Now the home... Their house was wonderful. It had everything we needed to feel comfortable and at home. The heated pool was a plus because it was a little chilly for Florida but we were still able to get out and enjoy it. The décor and amenities in the home also made it feel so homey. The home is a short block away from the beach but you can see the water from the front balcony and at night you can hear the waves crashing. There are many great restaurants nearby as well as a grocery store if you want to stay in and cook. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a peaceful vacation.

Our week was fabulous! The house lent itself very well to our family. We could grab the wagons and head to the beach easily. Or walk to get coffee in the morning. It is very well equipped and Joe and Jen are the perfect hosts!

It was our first time staying in Bradenton Florida and we had a wonderful experience.
The home exceeded our expectations, very clean and nicely decorated. The bathrooms were very clean which is something that I am very picky about! Jen and Joe were wonderful and there to help with anything. The beach is just a minute away as stated and my granddaughter had lots of fun playing in the pool.

Would definitely stay again! 5stars Thanks Jen and Joe

Perfect home away from home.

Thank you Jen and Joe for your hospitality. The home was everything we needed and then some. The location is great and the home is well taken care of. You provide a lot more than the average and that is greatly appreciated. The elevator was an added bonus!!! We had an amazing time and can’t wait to go again. Keep up the great work and hope to see you very soon. Joe’s going to have to make that chicken curry he talked about.

A piece of paradise

Thank you Jen and Joe for your amazing hospitality! We loved staying in your home! It was the perfect size for a family of 8. Everything was so clean and you definitely can see that you take great care and pride in your home. The home is beautifully decorated! It was such an easy 1-2 min walk to the beach where we spent all our days enjoying the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and the white powdery beaches and some of the most amazing sunsets. In the afternoons we loved relaxing by the pool after spending our day at the beach. The house was very close to restaurants and bars that you can easily walk or drive to. I would definitely love to revisit and I would definitely recommend this home to anyone that cares to stay in a high quality vacation home that is well cared for! Thank you again for for sharing your little piece of paradise!

Wonderful! Couldn't find a better home! Great Vacation!

My friends and I came to Anna Maria Island to get some much needed rest and relaxation and Jen and Joe’s rental was the perfect place. The location is awesome, as it is a very short walk from the beach and in close proximity to stores and restaurants. But who needs the beach when you can enjoy a private saltwater pool! This house had absolutely everything! The kitchen was fully stocked with every appliance and dish you need. The house was tastefully decorated, imacculately clean, and the elevator made bringing groceries and luggage inside a breeze, although we didn’t have worry about hauling our luggage as Joe so graciously assisted us! Jen and Joe thought of everything you need while on a beach vacation. The garage was filled with beach chairs, beach toys, wagons to transport your items back and forth from the beach, and even a ping pong table! They also provided board games for those of us who wanted to just vegetate. For people with kids, they even provide a highchair and a pack and play! We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and will definitely visit again! Jen and Joe were awesome hosts. We loved their rental home and their hospitality!

Anna Maria Island Vacation 2nd May - 8th May 2018

This is a beautiful property and is exactly as described by its owners. The property is immaculate, very well equipped and is in a super location. We loved that the property was of a modern construction with lots of light and a great layout. In addition to the many benefits of the property we loved the large balconies with great views across to the Gulf. The property is only 2 minutes from the beach, and the owners provide you with all the beach equipment you are likely to need. Another benefit: the property is within easy walking distance of a number of nice restaurants/bars including: The Beach House and the Bridge Street area. We made use of the island trolley bus, also only 2 minutes walk to a stop. We would not hesitate to stay again and recommend to others. Thanks Jen & Joe for your warm hospitality. Best wishes Ann, John & Alexandra (visiting from England)
