We had never been to AMI before and chose this house without knowing much about the area. Luckily for us, this house worked perfectly for our family.

The house is in a great location with shopping and restaurants nearby. It is also on a stretch of beach that doesn’t get crowded. You can go to the beach anytime of day and easily find plenty of room to set up. It truly takes at most one minute to get from the house to the beach.

I have seen reviews of this house that complain the kitchen is small, the decor needs to be updated, etc. The kitchen is small, but we had no issues making it work. There is a new Charbroil grill by the pool that we used quite a bit. We found the decor to be fun and quirky and didn’t have a problem with it.

The pool is mostly covered by the living room and balcony on the second floor. I thought this was a nice feature allowing us a break from the sun while we swam in the pool. There are palm trees, plants, and mulch in the backyard, so no matter how well the pool is cleaned, within 10 minutes you will have some leaves, mulch, and sand in the pool. We used the pool skimmer to take the leaves out when needed. The pool water was clean, properly maintained, and a great temperature.

The house has a lot of beach chairs, rafts, floaties, etc, but no wagon or beach buggy. The walk to the beach is short enough we just carried our stuff and didn’t have any problems.

We rented a golf cart while we were there and recommend it highly. The Pine St and Bridge street shopping areas both have limited parking, but we easily found places to park the golf cart.

There were 6 of us in the house (2 adults and 4 teenagers). We had plenty of room without using the 4th bedroom.

This house might not have a chef’s kitchen, granite counter tops, or high end furnishings, but it is a great beach house in a family oriented area next to a great beach. There are houses that are newly built or remodeled on the same street, but they cost 3 times as much.

We had a great week in AMI and would likely rent this house again if we come back.

Pros: loved the area, everything you needed. Check in was easy. House was awesome and clean. Pool is amazing, There is a back door to a path to the beach and it’s about a 3 minute walk to the entrance of the beach. Perfect beach water and sand. A manatee came up to us! AC was strong and great.
Cons: broken blind in master bedroom, didn’t feel like calling and getting it repaired I just called when we left. Pool skimmer was broken so we couldn’t clean the pool appropriately. Elevator was out of service, would have been so nice to use that when loading and unloading.
Would stay again!
Manager response:
Thank you for letting us know of these issues Shanna. We will see that they are addressed for our next guests. Thank you for your feedback.

Great home very close to beach

This house is really fantastic...filled with light, beautiful views of the Gulf off the gorgeous Master bedroom and the living room, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The heated pool is enjoyable, too. The galley kitchen is small but efficient, but the rest of the house, including a laundry room with an extra kitchen area, is delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there!

Nice house & located close to many restaurants Added bonus that everyone had their own bathroom. It’s a short walk to the beach. We could watch the sunset from the 2nd floor deck.
