We loved this home, and it easily accomodated 10 adults! The kitchen was large and completely stocked, the bedrooms were big, and the backyard with the pool and the tiki bar were fabulous! Easy walk to the beach as well! We really loved everything about it! Note: if you rent a golf car and park it on the street in front of the house, make sure it's pointed in the direction of traffic; otherwise, you'll receive a $50 ticket around 11:00 p.m. when you least expect it from the Ana Maria police.

The pool and spa were perfect for my large family. The proximity to the beach is convenient. Very quiet neighborhood. Comfortable beds with plenty of pillows. Abundant linens (including beach towels) and all cleaning and toiletries were provided.
Maribel O. Sep 2020
The bedrooms are very spacious, the house was clean when we arrived and had everything we needed. Plenty of plates, cups, glasses, two fridges to store all the drinks and a grill with tools and a brush. The backyard is very tropical, the pool and hot tub were perfect after the 2 minute walk from the beach. The only challenge where the mosquitos, but we had read a review about it and brought citronella candles to enjoy the outdoor.

pool was the place to be on this trip ­čÖî
Short walk to beach was a plus
House needs a little updating and upstairs bedrooms are super warm in am
But all n all a great time
The location is great!! Less than a block from the beach. Easy to walk back if you forget something.

The best part of this house is the spacious kitchen and open common area. We love to cook together and play games. This house made that very easy to do.

The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and great views, especially from the master suite on the top floor.

The pool area probably one of the best we've seen. The pool is large enough for the kids to play and adults to relax. The foliage allowed for privacy and reprieve from the sun.

One of our top spots!! We will be back!

AC cold, 2 fridges, nice kitchen, pool
Mark C. Jun 2020
The house had plenty of room for my family and we were a sneeze away from the beach. The adults loved the pool just as much if not more than the kids. In the past we have struggled with fridge space due to the number of family members we vacation with but this home had two which was amazing. Definitely our favorite AMI rental thus far. Highly recommend for large families. Bring misquito repellents!
Pam N. Jun 2020
Rating the home as a 3 because of poor communication with Vacasa. Home is very nice and a very short walk to the beach. Would return if Vacasa would improve their communication skills.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Pam. We apologize for any delay in assistance while we experience a high volume of calls due to the pandemic. We hope to better assist you in the near future!

This is a great house just a block from the beach with plenty of room for a large family and the most amazing pool!
Alice P. Feb 2020
Very comfortable beds and roomy kitchen/living room. Plenty of bathrooms for 7 adults and 3 children. Close to beach and fantastic swimming pool. Code for front door didnÔÇÖt work.
Manager response:
Alice, we are happy to hear you had a comfortable stay at this lovely property! We apologize for the trouble with the access code for the front door. We have passed your feedback along to our local manager who will ensure the correct code is provided moving forward. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

Hardy M. Oct 2019
I have stayed at many vacation rentals, but this was outstanding. The property was immaculate and we were well taken care of by Amanda and her team. Will definitely return!
Timothy L. Aug 2019
The home is beautiful inside and out The outdoor pool area needs some TLC. The ceiling fans needs clean. The rope trim around the bar is falling off and there is rusted staples. The fridge smells like mold. Furniture is broken. And there is no outdoor TV. It is a great place to stay it is a short walk to the beach I will stay there again
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! The property manager is aware of the outdoor bar and is working with the owner to address it. He will also do what he can to get approval to replace the broken furniture. Housekeeping is scheduled to deep clean the fridge and take care of the fan. We appreciate the constructive criticism.

Great house, location, responsive property manager
Tony R. Feb 2019
The 'Almost Gulf' house on 69th St. Holmes Beach is an ideal place for an escape with family or friends. Great location very close to the beach; beautiful pool with hot tub; and in the heart of Anna Maria Island.

Just as listed, great property.
Anthony H. Oct 2018
We enjoyed our stay at Almost Gulf Front. The house is very nice. We had a little issue with pool but Vacasa fixed it quickly! We will be back!!
Jane R. Aug 2018
This home was perfect for my husband and I and our 3 adult children with their spouses and our grandchildren! Everyone had their own space and the kitchen/ livingroom area was perfect for gathering together! You are so close to the beach you can walk! We will come again!
Clifford J. May 2018
If you are looking to accommodate a larger group this is a great place. The house is clean, the rooms are big, the beds are big and comfy, and there is plenty of utensils and cookware. The pool with a tiki bar and outside TV is really nice touch for entertaining as well. The house is very close to the beach and everything from check in to check out went very smooth. Highly recommended !!!

"The house was beautiful. More than what we expected. And the beach and weather couldn't have been better."

We had a wonderful time !
Vicki . Jun 2012
The house was just as described in the listing. It was so large two families could easily rent together each having their own floor. Just a 2 minute walk to a great part of the beach. The rental agency was attentive and helpful. Would definately rent this house again, especially at the "special" rate they had for April/May 2012.

We had a GREAT birthday celebration!
