We had an okay experience. Communication with Vacasa could be better. The only time they responded in a timely fashion via email was when there was an issue with our shower. Unfortunately, the master shower was clogged and couldn’t be fixed until the day before we left; we were discounted some of the cost of our stay for this at least. Calling the company means you’re calling a call center, so they don’t really know anything about your specific property. I was also bummed to learn that they don’t offer a place to drop bags in case you arrive to the island earlier than check-in. The pool/hot tub area is nice, but we had difficulties with it consistently running well. It was a bit of a puzzle to get the hot tub to heat sometimes as there were no instructions posted. I did appreciate having TVs in the bedrooms. Do note that one of the beds is a Murphy style bed with not the most comfortable mattress, but the bedroom is private. The walk to the beach is great. We rented a golf cart and we’re able to park it in the garage. Check-in was simple. We were offered a late checkout for a fee, but only until 2pm. The Vacasa app says that late checkouts allow you to stay to 7pm. I asked via email about this and never got a reply. The house had a gas grill, but it was janky. We were happy to see that they also had a charcoal grill, which we ended up using instead with charcoal we purchased. I emailed about the grill, so hopefully they will service it. All in all, we likely won’t stay with Vacasa again. There are so many rental companies on the island and a smaller company or independent owner may offer better service.
Manager response:
Jena, Thank you for leaving us a review following your stay. We pride ourself on the level of Customer Service that we provide our guests and apologize if you felt that the service was subpar.

All guests are sent an email with the local number to reach our staff. We also have an office where guests can store luggage after check-out. We appreciate you bringing these items to our attention and allowing us to improve for our future guests. We look forward to hosting you again very soon!

We love the proximity to the beach, the pool/hot tub, the layout of the home, the ease of check in/out and Vacasa's service!

Short walk to beach. Nice pool.
Harold F. Jun 2022
The open floor plan is great along with the garage and pool. Close to the beach.
Catherine M. Jan 2022
Loved the backyard pool area and the spaciousness of the house
Alex D. Oct 2021
Home was very comfortable.
Pool was great and walk to beach was easy.
We would definitely rent this home again.
Terry T. Sep 2021
The house was just what we needed, pool n hot tub included. 1.5 blocks from the beach for great daytime swimming and sunning in the sand and wonderful sunsets! The rooms were big enough, the layout allows you to spread out when needed or gather when you want. AMI and the Tropical Oasis through VACASA are our happy place!
Vivian A. Aug 2021
The best of this house is the location, very close the beach. Tropical Oasis is spacious and it has a very nice patio and pool.
However, there are several things that needs fixing. Although the patio is very nice, it was dirty and very messy, dirty chairs and tables all over the place along with old deflated pool floats laying around the pool deck.
There is also an outdoor shower which is dirty and it has weeds in it, the shower head also needs to be replaced.
Inside the house cleaning was also an issue, blinds need dusting, the house in general requires a detailed cleaning. Additional hangers will be beneficial, kitchen pots are old and need replacement.
One of the biggest issues we encountered was with Vacasa customer service. The house is advertised as one car garage and two driveway spaces. When we arrived, the garage was full of old and peeled up dirty furniture. We contacted Vacasa’s customer service number, but no one came to clean the garage, my husband ended up moving the furniture inside the house to a corner of the dining room as we needed the 3 parking spaces. We also contacted Vacasa, Saturday, the day of our arrival, because the A/C was not cooling down, this time someone came in Monday, luckily the A/C started working Saturday evening.
One of the beds had linens but no covers, several days later we found the covers in the dryer.
Overall, the house was nice but had several inconveniences. The house needs to be better cleaned and upgraded and the customer service needs HUGE improvement as they need to be more attentive to their renters.

Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback. The property manager went to the rental to inspect the points you provided in your review. Maintenance and housekeeping have been assigned tasks to get these issues resolved as quickly as possible. Thanks, Vivian!

The distance to the beach and the back yard are what you are renting. The house is spacious but needs some work. Ants caused us to throw some food away and the pool was very dirty when we arrived. Took 2 days to get that cleaned and working (besides the cleaning I did). The Island is great and this property gives you great access to the trolley and the beach. The bed in the master is wore out and things in general just need to be addressed.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Timothy. We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

A block from the beach, having a pool is a must IMO. Overall a nice house. Some minor issues but didn't stop us from having a great trip.

Cute house. Beautiful pool
Enrique R. Aug 2020
Our stay at Tropical Oasis was nothing short of relaxing. From the private pool to the sandy beach only steps away. The perfect combo of privacy and beach home. The house was very clean upon arrival and had all of the space for our family of 6. Would recommend to anyone looking for a house on the beach with the privacy of a home. Can’t wait to come back next year!

We had a fantastic week in AMI after the covid lock down ended. We spent tons of time at the private pool/hot tub. It was a nice big pool, some on the island are tiny pools but this one was just right for us. The walk to the beach was very easy for us and our 8/6 year old kids.

Some tips for improvements or future renters:
We rented beach chairs for the week, since none were at house. Also, there was absolutely no starters of anything in the home. Plan accordingly when shopping or packing. It would have been nice for Vacasa to give us a heads up on this prior to arrival...Patio furniture is broken and in bad shape, needs replaced. Gutters on back side of house are missing/broken, so after it rains, all the water pools and drips right in front of the sliding glass door entry...this was annoying and made for tracking extra sand and dirt into the house everytime we went in and out...

All in all this house was a great location, nothing fancy but just right for a beach house and family of 4 for the week. If owner would make some minor updates and fixes this place would be spectacular!

Great house with an amazing pool. Just a short walk and your on the beach and just a few mins from all the shopping and Restaurants Anna Maria has to offer.
Cathy M. Feb 2019
We loved the location, only a short walk to the beach. And the house was perfect, very clean . The best part was the patio area with the pool, hot tub and grill. The only thing that could use a little updating were the mattresses. But that being said, we would love to return. We had the best vacation there!
Joen B. Jan 2019
Outdoor pool and hot tub were awesome. Indoors had so much space, with room to spread out. We walked a block to the beach. Nice residential area as well.
Lisbel I. Aug 2018
I absolutely loved this house. It was great for kids. I went during red tide so we chose to not use the beaches, so the pool and the hot tub were total life savers. The house is spacious and super clean. My only recommendation is that the landscape in the front of the house needs to be taken care of. We also had to sweep the back patio around the pool area . Aside from that minor detail I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely come here again.

Very nice house! I would’ve love if there were more chairs and light in the pool area since there is so much empty space but its a nice house, excellent location!
Molly V. Jun 2018
Loved the location and proximity to the beach. The backyard and pool were fabulous! Can’t wait to return!
Suzanne And Scott P. Apr 2018
This was a wonderful house with fantastic access to the beach and all amenities of AMI. The layout really lent itself to outdoor living. The pool and backyard were lovely and we enjoyed many dinners out there under the stars.
