PErfect Family Vacation Rental 5/5 Stars.

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)

Second time staying in this home; couldn't ask for anything more.

We've rented vacation properties regularly over the years and this is by far one of our favorites - this past stay was our second time renting Jen and Joe's home, and we're already booked again for next year. The care and attention to detail that the owners put into the house really shows - you won't find a cleaner rental.

The location can't be beat, a short walk to a fantastic beach, and in close proximity to shopping, restaurant, groceries, etc. The house is spacious and very well appointed - we've shared the home with another couple and our kids and have always had ample room. The elevator is a nice luxury when moving in luggage or groceries!

Jen and Joe are great neighbors, incredibly welcoming and hospitable, and are always happy to help with questions or suggestions as needed. Can't wait to visit again next year.

Beautiful Home!

Jen and Joe were great. They helped us and were responsive whenever we needed it from booking to check in, during the week and for check out. Beautiful place with lots of room. Very clean! Has everything needed for a fun week at the beach - beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, towels etc. with carts to help transport. Anna Maria Island is a fun and family friendly place to spend Spring Break. The salt water pool was a real treat!

This property was more than we ever imagined. Everything was spotless and fully equipped.

We began searching in July 2017 for some place new to visit for our first Grommet family reunion. Discovering this gorgeous palace was a true blessing. The owners Joe and Jen were more than just owners. Hospitable and over the top with accommodations. We enjoyed immensely being able to enjoy our very own private pool which came with all the pool toys imaginable. The pool was spotless, heated, saltwater. Plenty of room for our 5 adults and our 4 grandchildren ages 10, 7, soon to be 5 and our 13 month old little guy loved walking just a few steps to the pool. We even embarked on a ping pong tournament in the lower level garage which also was fully equipped with beach toys chairs and wagons to haul the items to the beach. The beach was only a block walk from our palace.
The interior was gorgeous. Bedrooms very accommodating and equipped with baby gate for the stairs and a pack and play for our little guy.
This was our very first time renting a home and it was the best ever. Stores and restaurants very close. The owners of this property were outstanding. We will be back for another Family Get together depending on all our schedules. Definitely a 10 star in our books!!!
Thank you for having us and the best to you both from your friends at The Villages, Crown Point, In and Naperville, Illinois.
