The best house we've stayed in

"Nicole was an awesome host. The house literally had everything. The location was amazing as well. This was hands down the best house we've stayed in. Can't say enough good things about it!"

This home is a unicorn

"This was our 2nd year staying in AMI. This home is a unicorn. Nestled between the bustle of Pine avenue and the sereneness of the canal where we saw manatees almost daily. This house is well accommodating for the chef in your family. Nicole is the bomb! Answered any questions within minutes. Truly a wonderful time spent in my favorite place. "

this was by far our best experience

"We had the best time here! The house was super clean, and stocked with everything you'd need even random things (detergent, cleaning supplies, water machine for refillable cups, wireless speaker, etc.) The beds and bedding were super nice and comfortable, even had to look at the tags so I can buy the same sheets. The decor was so fun and interesting. We spent so much time in the pool and on the swings and searching for manatees (were told it was a little early for them to be in the canal). Walked to bean point every morning and night for sunset/sunrise or to the rod and reel pier and the little shops and restaurants on Pine Ave. Such a beautiful place! We've only used air b n b a few times but this was by far our best experience."

Very accommodating!

"Nicole's place worked out perfect for our family of 6. We loved the pool & hottub especially. Very accommodating and Nicole was very responsive to any of our questions we had while there. Highly recommend this place!"

everything you need to be right at home

"This place was fantastic for our family spring break vacation! It's located on a quiet residential street, but walkable or short golf cart ride to the main strip on Pine Ave. or to the beautiful Bean Point Beach. Nicole's place has everything you need to be right at home. My girls loved the pool and hot tub with all the toys you need including floats and goggles. The kitchen is well stocked to make family meals and the beds were very comfortable. Finally, Nicole makes it super easy for a beach day. All the sand toys you need, beach chairs and umbrellas and most important beach cart. Perfect vacation! We would rent again for sure!"
