We had a fabulous week, the house is so well equipped. Beds were really comfortable. The kitchen is great for cooking, all of the equipment you need. We rented bikes and kayaks and spent time either at the beach or the fabulous pool. Great coffee at the Waffle House and lots of great restaurants in Anna Maria. Best breakfast was at Minnie’s. We hope to return next year.

Wonderful home on Willow, near everything, walking distance to shops, cafes, restaurants, and the beach. House was pristine clean, had all amenities, comfy mattresses, a pool, dock, balcony, and boat lift. Definitely plan to be back.
We used to live on Anna Maria on Kumquat and miss it a ton. Fun to see the changes. Definitely recommend this home!!

This was the second time our family stayed in this house. Everything about this house is great. The home was clean, spacious, private, and loaded with amenities! The location is also fantastic - just a short walk down the road to the beach! I would definitely recommend this property and look forward to another visit.

We have been going to Anna Maria for ten years and this is the best villa we have stayed in by far. The facilities were excellent and the kitchen was the best equipped - everything was provided for. Unfortunately, we did have a couple of issues during our stay which were dealt with extremely quickly by the management company. Would thoroughly recommend Blue Waters.

We were already 4 times on Anna-Maria and this was the most beautiful house, equipment as well as location. Quietly on the canal on a dead end street , 5 walking minutes to the beach with beach cart in the garage. No other beach goers park in front of the house or walk by but it still close to go to the water. The amenities are very good. The stereo is not not self-explanatory, but you can call the office to call someone over. Each of the 4 rooms are indicated to sleep 2 but one bed on the ground floor is only for cuddlers. The pool and spa are spacious and well maintained. However there is a beautiful large tree that loses leaves regularly so there are constantly leaves in the pool. Pool cleaning 2 times a week is not enough and we needed to clean the pool every time before using it. Thre is a TV even outside, in every room and even by the billiard table. To operate the TVs is not easy even with the provided instructions but you call to get help.

Wonderful pool. This is our third year on the island and by far the best pool we've experienced.

Booked house though VRBO - particulars handled by Island Real Estate, Anna Maria. All aspects of booking and lease documents were handled timely and professionally. House was exactly what was expected and portrayed in listing. Simple check in and check out procedure. House was clean on arrival. Beach chairs, umbrellas, and a wagon were included for the beach which was a 5 minute walk straight up the street with a cross walk. The internet wi/fi connection was flawless. Upstairs the pool table, sitting area, balcony, and wet bar were all excellent and fully functional. The unit was walking distance to a good number of restaurants and a few short blocks to Pine - which is the downtown areas with shops and more restaurants. We especially enjoyed watching the Daytona 500 on the outdoor flat screen while cooling off in the pool, as well as catching the sunset over the canal from the spa. Another nice feature is the mangrove across the canal - blocking the home across the way - it makes the backyard quite private. It also comes with a floating dock for kayaks and a boat lift. If you have a family event or occasion - we would definitely recommend checking out 230 Willow.

We were on Anna Maria Island for a family wedding and could not have found a better place to stay for the week. Everything about the house was perfect for our entire family. The kitchen is a dream to cook in and made cooking dinner for extended family a breeze. The beds were all very comfortable and the living room was a great place to hang out and catch up with everyone.

I had the pleasure of staying at Blue Waters for 10 days and had a fantastic experience. The house offers everything that one could possibly ask for. The kitchen/lounge is beautifully open planned and ideal for social purposes. The furniture is comfortable and the kitchen is a great size and has everything you need. The bedrooms are a good size and as I was staying upstairs, I enjoyed stretching my legs on the balcony that stretched the width of the house and gave me great views of the pool and the lake out back, a great way to start the morning. Entertainment is clearly paramount and the pool table, several flat screen TVs, sound system with speakers all round the house were ideal for when indoors. On top of this, the pool and jacuzzi got a lot of use and has a great bbq out back. The lake gave us the chance to fish off the back and the house has two kayaks which we made good use of to boot. As far as location goes, it is situated on a nice quiet residential road but only moments from quite a few restaurants and bars as well as Pine Avenue. To make the best use of this, we hired bicycles for the trip and was able to cycle pretty much anywhere on the island within 5-10 minutes, this includes both piers and the beach is even closer. All in all, the trip was thoroughly enjoyable and looking at some of the other properties, I personally didn't see any better than this and will definitely be returning and staying again.

We were lucky enough to spend a few days here in March. A stunning home, both inside and out. The house is beautifully furnished and very spacious. We enjoyed spending time in the lovely pool and at the grill. So nice to be just minutes away from the beach, the shops, and fantastic local restaurants. One of the best vacations we've ever had!

This luxurious home, just minutes from the beach, was so comfortable! We had so much fun relaxing by the pool. The furniture is gorgeous and contemporary and clean. At sunset we had a barbecue on the grill, which was poolside. This quiet neighborhood is right around the corner from bike rentals, bakeries, and the most delicious fresh seafood you can find! It had everything we needed with a fully stocked kitchen. I absolutely loved this house!

This Mediterranean style home is beautifully crafted to accomadate for a luxurious island get-a-way. The space, furnishings, and private outdoor amentities such as a pool and dock makes staying there comfortable and dreamy. The location of the home is perfect for a walk to the beach and riding bikes around to the quaint shops and indulgent resturants. Truly this is one of the best homes on Anna Maria.

This well appointed home is like something out of HGTV with high end furniture, appliances, and kitchen ware. The home has several large flat screen TVs and an integrated sound system. The game room, beautifully furnished lanai, pool and hot tub cannot be beat. You can fish in the intercostal behind the home or on one of three island piers. Many restaurants are within a short walk. The neighborhood is very quiet. A fantastic property for a luxurious vacation!

We really enjoyed our time in this Villa on Anna Maria Island. We are 2 families (8 in total) and this Villa was ideal. It is well appointed with a lovely and relaxing outside area. The Island of Anna Maria is charming with very friendly local people and a good range of local amenities and restaurants. We would like to return one day!

My partner and I loved every minute at Blue Waters! The property was spotless, clearly well cared for and beautifully designed. I loved the open plan space downstairs, and the huge flat screens, cable TV, selection of DVDs (and books, boardgames and billiards table) were huge plus when it was too hot to spend very long outdoors. As a poor swimmer, I really enjoyed the chance to improve in the private pool (miraculously always the perfect temperature), and my partner loved sitting on the dock fishing. We loved the french doors that link almost every room to the outdoors. We especially enjoyed being able to play our music on the garden speakers while in the pool, or eating dinner. The barbecue was also amazing - and we didn't hesitate to grill some local lobster tail (absolutely delicious). The location is excellent - and just a five minute walk to the unbelievably beautiful white sand beach! The dock also leads straight to the sea, and even if you don't have a boat, you can kayak to the beach, like we did! I'd only kayaked once before (about 10 years ago!) but the water is shallow and clear enough that even a shoddy swimmer like myself could handle it. The owners and Island Real Estate were great, and did everything they could to make our stay as relaxing as possible. I would definitely recommend Blue Waters to anyone who would listen! All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at Blue Waters - it felt like a home away from home. The locals call Anna Maria 'paradise' and it's easy to see why! We can't wait for our next stay!
