A sparkling clean and well-kept house in a perfect location, just steps to the beach. We especially loved the pool area with tiki bar and hot tub. There were plenty of rafts and beach chairs, and 2 bikes. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the upper balcony looking out at the lush landscaping. Although we mostly ate out at the wonderful island restaurants, the kitchen was very well stocked with utensils, pots, pans, etc. The owners were very attentive and even called to make sure everything was perfect. We highly recommend this property and hope to book again next year!

Best location. Well maintained property. The pool is wonderful as is the outdoor seating area. Nicest owners that we're in contact and we had a great neighbor! We will be back next year!

This is our 3rd time staying at this property, and we can’t wait to return in the summer. The owners are great to work with and the house is immaculate. It’s equipped with everything you need for a fantastic beach vacation. If you’re looking for a clean, comfortable house with a sparkling pool, that’s very close to the beach, I highly recommend this property!

Anna Maria Island is an awesome location to enjoy a relaxing vacation. And this property was a great place to stay. Located conveniently near the beach (5 mins) the property provides all the luxuries needed for an awesome vacation while maintaining the cottage experience. The owners have provided all of the necessities for a beach vacation which means all you need to do is arrive with food and clothing. The backyard is set up for relaxation and being from Canada I enjoyed watching hockey every night from the hot tub. The living area was cozy and clean with all modern conveniences with a beach cottage feel. I highly recommend this area to vacation and if you are looking for a place that has everything at an exceptional value then this is the place. We can't wait to return. Cheers.

Paradise Palms has everything you need to escape from reality. The pool with the LED colored lights, the hot tub, the pool shelf with umbrella, the opposite end of the pool with the swim up "bar", the covered area under the house to escape the sun with dining table, bar and TV, the screened porch on the front of the house, the gas grill and deck are all perfection! The inside of the house is nice too but we did not spend much time inside at all. The kitchen has everything you need if you decide to cook (we used it several times) and also tons of great restaurants to enjoy. There is only a very short walk to the beach to watch the amazing sunsets. Take advantage of the Monkey Bus! A FREE taxi/bus that picks you up and takes you where ever you like for tips only. The owners are very quick with their response time if you have any questions or issues. We are only 3 days home and trying to figure out when we can return. I think that says it all!!!!

We had a Wonderful Time with our family and we will love to go back at anytime !!!!! Very clean property and friendly people around.

First let me say THANKS to the Kenrick's for sharing their lil piece of Paradise on earth with us. Our plans to spend the week at the beach were changed due to circumstances beyond our control. They were willing to allow us their house for the weekend. My daughter got married on the beach Saturday night. We walked over and had a sweet wedding minus the sunset but all was good. We had a cookout in the pool area and everything was great. We had a wonderful time and the house was everything we needed and more. Thanks again for allowing us to stay at your perfect property. Hopefully this will not be our last visit. Thanks again, Donna Parton

Where to start, from the awesome location on AMI to the amazing sunsets, this property has everything you could possibly want for the makings of a wonderful vacation. The owners are very responsive and accommodating and the entire process from booking to check-out was simple and easy. A beautiful, quiet neighborhood with convenient beach access and trolley stops. The house was very clean and well appointed and the outdoor space ...WOW!! We were blessed with fantastic weather for our late December trip and were able to spend a lot of time outdoors and thoroughly enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and outdoor seating area with TV. We enjoyed this property so much we are already planning our next trip for spring/summer.

This Christmas will be had to improve upon thanks to this wonderful rental. My husband and I are nearing retirement so we are sampling different places. We stayed with our 2 adult children and their companions. There was more than enough room for all of us to live happily together. The pool, jacuzzi and outdoor living space are amazing. We travel with with two poodles who were happy on the screened porch. They loved the freedom of the enclosed backyard and pool area. In a great location for dog walking. The community park we walked to had 2 dog parks. The Ugly Grouper has great food, games and live music, it is a must do within walking distance as well. But, you can bike there thanks to the awesome amenities at this property! We really appreciated the ample supply of beach towels! The wagon and beach chairs made life soo easy! Our pool warmed up nicely so we swam under the stars. I was impressed with dark sky filled with stars on Anna Maria Island, virtually no light pollution! The night sky rivals that of the secluded deserts of the Southwest! We took a day trip to Fort Desoto and enjoyed the dog beach and fort. Beach combing here was a natural delight. We found 3 sea stars sauntering in the shallow surf. Also enjoyed the cutest hermit crab in a tiny tulip shell. This is a great dog friendly county park that is only 50 minutes north. The Skyway bridge is better photos approaching from the south. This property has enough HD TV to please everyone with one in each bedroom and the living rooms inside and out! I have never been more pleased with a family vacation! This place is heaven on earth! Fun and exciting, but peaceful and relaxing, oh and calm and quiet at night! If you can rent this place...do it immediately! Six adults all 100 percent satisfied beyond expectations! Thank you for a memorable end to 2017!

We have stayed at several Anna Maria homes but this is our favorite. The house was beautiful and very clean. It had everything that we needed and more! The pool area is gorgeous and we only wish that we didn’t have weather in the 40s and 50s so we could enjoy it more! But the hot tub was key. Kids enjoyed it thoroughly on those cooler days and nights. We would love to rent again some time and hope for warmer weather!! Thank you so much for everything! Oh and the phone call was very nice to see how things were going. We were out to dinner celebrating my daughters birthday but appreciated you reaching out to us!

Our first time to Anna Maria Island and it did not disappoint. My wife and I along with our 17 year old and her friend had a great time. This place was great very close to the beach and the trolley. The pool, hot tub, and outdoor areas were awesome.
- Bruce, Posted: 04/10/2018
Great location, 2 blocks to the beach. Owners have everything you need, including male and female bikes, pool toys, beach towels, even a beach cart to load up and take to the beach. Clean with all kitchen utilities even crock pot and a blender. Pool is great. Heated and super clean with plenty of furniture for poolside. Open bar area with couches and big screen for outdoor enjoyment. Bedrooms are nice size with King and 2 doubles, spacious sitting areas and outdoor screened in porch too. Perfect stay and location for my family over spring break. Best VRBO we have been to.

We just checked out of this really nice Apartment. It was perfect for me, my husband and our two sons, 12 and 9 years old. There’s beach chairs and toys available. You could also use the two adult bikes. A lot of restaurants are in walking distance, others you can get to with the free trolley, so there’s no need to use the car other than grocery shopping. The pool area is fantastic with some sun and shadow all day. We had the pleasure to meet the owners, Jeff and Ilona and they are really accommodating and nice. We will be back next time we will go to AMI.
- Patrick, Posted: 06/05/2018
Comfortable and well cared for. great place for our family of 2 adults, 2 kids. Lower level private pool / outdoor living space is a perfect retreat after ami activities.

This was our second time staying at this property and we certainly hope it won’t be our last. We had rented this property in December 2017 and quickly booked our May 2018 trip as we couldn’t wait to get back and enjoy everything this unit has to offer. Jeff and Ilona, the owners, are very friendly and responsive. You can tell they want you to feel right at home the minute you arrive. We travel a long distance by car with two small dogs and this trip we arrived a couple hours early and given the house was ready they allowed us to check in a bit early which was awesome. Note: I know they can’t do this if the house isn’t ready, but my point is that they we’re happy to accommodate given the circumstances allowed. We love the location of this property with quick and easy access to the beach, nearby trolley stops, nice restaurants and bars that are very close. Everything you could need for the beach or pool is there for you to use, so you can pack light. The house is super clean and well kept, as well as having most everything you need to prepare meals at home. Love Anna Maria Island and love this property. Hope to be back soon!!!!!!!

Our first trip to AMI and using VRBO, we had a great experience with both! The house and pool were fantastic and centrally located. We made the short walk to the beach each night to watch the sunset and used the bikes and beach wagon a few times. We would love to return to AMI and would definitely stay at this rental again. The owners were very helpful and attentive to any concerns. Only problem was how fast the week went! Make sure you go to Duffy’s Tavern, the best burger I’ve ever had!
