The home is located one block from the beach and is set up perfectly for families! This home is very clean, plenty of furnishings, linens, beach towels and room to relax. The private pool is great when the kids want to swim and the hot tub is great in the evening for parents to relax. This is our 2nd time staying in this home and we'll be back!

Loved everything about this home. The home is a block away from the beach. Large open living area. Pool was sparking clean. Just beautiful home. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need.

We loved our stay. It was very relaxing. The house is spacious and designed to have a lot of people but still giving privacy to each suite. The kitchen had everything we needed. The pool was a perfect spot to cool off and relax after the beach or in the morning. We will be back.

We loved Catchin’ Rays! The house was adorable!!! There was room for everyone in our group, and each bedroom has its own beautiful bathroom. We really enjoyed the open concept of the home and the community that brought. It’s so close to the beach, and we enjoyed sunsets each night. Kids loved the pool! Parents loved the hot tub! We’ll be back!

Great location. Great house with a wonderfully stocked kitchen. Highly recommend this as a rental. This was our first time renting a house and it did not disappoint.

I have been going to this house and location for the last 4 years and as long as I am able and given the opportunity I will continue to return. The house itself is perfectly laid out for our large family. Basically there are four little bedroom suites each with its own bathroom. A large dining table and relaxing area has plenty of room for hanging out when eating or getting a break from the sun with the kids. I love having laundry there because we can dry all our wet clothes from swimming and pack lightly so we don't have to check bags. Then you step into the backyard getaway with a wonderful heated pool/jacuzzi combo that has a beautiful little waterfall feature. The kids cannot get enough of the pool, and I can swim or sit and read depending on my mood. When you are ready to go to the beach you gather your stuff and walk 1 block and then you are standing on the Gulf beach. Set up an umbrella and stay awhile! All these wonderful things have not even begun to describe how wonderful AMI is. The eats on the island are glorious: Rod & Reel, City Pier, The Sandbar are a few of my favorites. It is truly a relaxing time. You can start a tour to Egmont Key or around the island. You can fish off the docks of the island or charter a guided experience. Long story short, Island Time is the Best Time!

This property was wonderful. only a short stroll to the beautiful beach, it is in a great location. The pool was refreshing after a day of playing in the sand. The house was very clean and had plenty of space for our group. Would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic vacation rental! Perfect location just a short walk from the beach. Private pool and hot tub fun for relaxing and reading while the kids have fun. Love the open space in the house for family games. The kitchen is amazing with plenty of room for enjoying cooking together and meals. Definitely recommend this rental to others and we will be returning ourselves.

We will absolutely refer friends to island real estate. Catchin' rays is a wonderful property. the room inside is absolutely wonderful. very spacious and all very recently updated. it may have been the best furnished kitchen of any rental we have ever stayed in. our conversation all week was if we'd rather stay at catchin' rays or last year's rental called Jackie's Place. We really loved Jackie's Place but loved catchin' rays equally as much. we decided there was pros and cons to each! our week was wonderful. thank you so much! we look forward to a visit again sometime in the future.

My family of 5 have stayed here several times. And we've come with extended family too. We love it. It's great for adults because the beach is wonderful the privacy and quiet of the house and pool/spa are perfect. We walk across the street to to the beach. The home is clean and comfortable. Even with young children we are able to completely relax. I recommend this paradise away from home to everyone.

My best friend and I came for a week and cannot express adequately how lovely this home is. There are so many nice touches that make it feel like home, not just a rental. This house is very convenientally located just steps from the beach making it so easy to run "home" to use the restroom, eat lunch, or take a quick cat nap. The pool is sparkling clean and so refreshing. Oh, and the hot tub...ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. The perfect ending to a perfect day. We will definitely stay here again.
