Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay at the property. With 14 of us, the living area could not have been better laid-out. And with the lovely bar area, pool and dock (which we were able to use for our boat very easily - you can launch your boat at the public slipway), it is a great place to bring families together for Thanksgiving. We brought bikes along, so were able to cycle around the island to explore the fantastic beaches as well. Excellent restaurants are within walking distance too, should you want them.

Things to be aware of: there are only two en-suite bathrooms, with the other two shared. As long as you don’t mind sharing, then that’s fine. Our bedroom was missing curtains for the first night, but Vacasa came and sorted the problem the next day, together with a the broken sofa. If you want to cook some pancakes, suggest you bring your own frying pan (the two there were not good), plus salt, pepper and oil (absolutely nothing was provided, which is a little surprising given the outlay) - but apart from that, the kitchen was well appointed with plenty of large pots/pans enabling us to cater for large numbers with ease (two sinks and two dishwashers). Wifi is not strong, so don’t expect to watch any movies with Netflix, given very slow download speeds. Would have been nice to stream music using the speakers that were in-site, but there were no instructions to link them (fortunately we had brought a wireless speaker).

As a great family house - we would definitely recommend it (recognising the items above, to manage expectations).

The house was spacious and well stocked. Lots of restaurants and the beach within walking distance. Definitely would recommend!

Beautiful big house but it needs an update. The wifi didn't work our entire trip (we tried restarting the router), the oven has never been cleaned, the pool was green and kind of dirty, also it was way over heated (felt more like a jacuzzi), and the backyard area wasn't even picked up or cleaned before we got there. They were still cleaning the house when we arrived right at check in time so we had to wait. Other than that, it was nice. The location is great, right next to the beach and all the shops. The house is beautiful but it will need renovations soon. We loved how open the kitchen was with all the windows that opened by the bar. The tiki toss was cute.
Manager response:
We apologize for the issues this guest encountered and wish they had called about them so we could have been of assistance. We have followed-up with housekeeping and inspected the items mentioned. Thank you!

I had a great weekend getaway to this home on AMI. It has a ton of space and is great for entertaining. Its on a cul de sac and is very quiet, but only a few minutes' drive from some great nearby restaurants. You can fish of the dock in the back, and of course the beach is only a few minutes away. I highly recommend this home for your next visit to Florida's west coat beaches.

My family and I needed to spend quality time together and unwind after a hectic holiday season. We stayed one stress free week in this simply incredible house. At first I didn't want to write a review, so I could selfishly save this place for us. However, I felt compelled to let others know about this fantastic slice of Paradise! It's decorated so tastefully that you will instantly feel like you are home. The kitchen made my heart sing. Since we love to stay home during the night time and cook we took full advantage of this state of art kitchen. However, Anna Maria Island is home to award-winning, phenomenal restaurants from rustic beach-side Tiki bars to elegant bistros. We visited many of the local hangout too. My husband and boys went totally wild when they discovered (drum roll please), The Donut Experiment. They had fresh donuts with bacon on top of them. Yes they did. We hit for lunch one day, Poppos Taqueria which is gourmet Mexican Street Food, authentic and yummy. Next stop we had to visit the best local hamburger spot on the island, Duffy's Tavern. Family-owned and operated for over 35 years. It was delightful. Breakfast is big for our family, so we went down the street to Ginny and Jane E's, what a hidden treasure and fun gathering spot. After all those breakfast and lunches we enjoyed a few adventures. We did the eco-tour, walked on the Anna Maria City Pier, Kayaking and the boys did the Segway Tour. Honestly, Waterfront Retreat is gorgeous. There is a flow to the common area of this house that allows everyone to be together comfortably sharing the space. The flat screen televisions were impressive as well. The boys were happy to have wireless internet too. The family spent late afternoons and early evenings in the backyard area swimming in the heated pool and relaxing in the patio area. They do have a boat dock that we didn't take advantage of, but next time we will bring our boat. However, I was the happiest of campers when we were allowed to bring our 40 pound delightful Golden Doodle, Piper... what a bonus for us. She was in heaven. The whole family gives this property two thumbs up and four furry paws up as well. We can't wait to return next year, same time, same place. Enjoy!

"My favorite part of the property is that our grown children love the relaxed attitude of AMI, the fish lights under the dock and the ability to walk to dinner."

This was my first time to Anna Maria Island and it did not disappoint. The house itself is a modern marvel as there are numerous windows surrounding the house inviting you to immerse into the sunny island life. Highlights of the home include the waterfront view, amazing gourmet kitchen, ten flatscreen TV's (so I could watch the Olympics), super cool outdoor/indoor bar and just a three minute walk to the beach! There was plenty of space for my family and me to relax and enjoy our vacation, and it was also very pleasing to be able to bring our two dogs to enjoy the vacation time with us. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a peaceful, yet extremely exciting vacation.

"First time we have rented a vacation property with your company and it was seamless. We love the ability to see availability and reserve on line, and your check in and check out process was very easy. Thank you!"

The house was beautiful, and just as the photos showed. We loved this location on the canal it was perfect! We saw a lot of marine life, which was exciting, that you might not get to see at the ocean. Had a couple cleanliness issues to start but they came and fixed them right away!! The pool area was good though might seem small, but it was perfect and kids had a blast. Might be more appealing if homeowners would offer beach chairs, or bikes, fishing poles. Great Vacation and location.
