Better than described! Beautiful home and gracious owners.

"The home is very clean and updated. The owners are amazing, my family and I loved our stay. This is our new number one home to book on AMI. Everything that we needed for our stay was here. We were lucky to see Manatees almost every day of our trip. We will definitional book again. Wonderful experience!!"

Manatee Watching was fun!

"We had a wonderful stay at Manatee Watch. Olaf and Marissa do a great job with their properties. As we have stayed across the street, a few years back! We will stay there again!"

Manatee Watch is as good as advertised!

"Like so many of the reviews before us, we have nothing but good things to say about our experience with Manatee Watch and Olaf and Marissa. We would definitely stay again! There was excellent communication leading up to our stay. Check in was a breeze. We had a couple questions during our stay and they were very responsive/helpful. The property is exactly as shown in the listing. Very clean, up to date, and perfect for our family of 4. Bonus points for the grill being newer/cleaner than most rentals we’ve used :-) The location is excellent. It’s less than 5 minutes to the beach by foot, and the beach access was not crowded at all. The canal is serene and peaceful, and we had Manatees swimming around most days. The grocery store, a marina, and several restaurants are less then 5 minutes away as well. It made our daily excursions accessible and easy. We had a great time and recommend Manatee Watch for all it has to offer while at Holmes Beach/AMI."

July 2021 Vacation

"This property was incredible and the owners were above and beyond. Olaf and Marissa were fantastic and so kind, the manatees kept us company all day - every day in the canal while we enjoyed the awesome pool. We have been vacationing to AMI for 8 years and this is one of our best house experiences. Thank you Olaf and Marissa!"

"This house was perfect and the hosts were amazing. The house was clean and came with all of the essentials and more. Many days we saw manatees and the beach was a short walk and never crowded. This was our first time in Anna Maria Island and Olaf & Marissa were so helpful answering all of our questions and gave great recommendations. We loved our stay and can't wait to stay again next year."
