This was our fourth time we stayed in one of the units at Gulf Shore. We love this place because there are not too many units, and each one has a fabulous view of the gulf.
The beach is wonderful, and you just can't beat the sunsets. Holmes Beach is a quiet town, you really feel like you can just sit back and really relax.

Million dollar view!!

Wow!! Direct gulf front, fantastic sunset every night. Super nice unit with lots of space. No elevator, which could be tough for some getting up to the third floor. That was not an issue for us, though. Cable TV, wireless internet, large dining area, we had 7 people and felt like there was plenty of room.
Five stars if it had an elevator!! Read more

Hello "Million $ view"!
We are so pleased that you had a great vacation! You are correct! This condo has fantastic views and lots of room for a bigger family. An elevator would be great but we are glad you could manage without it.
Thanks for vacationing with us!

needs some updating & more amendies!!

Hi, we did enjoy our stay at Anna Maria Island, the condo was very nice & equipt with ALOMOST everything you need for your stay BUT if you dont sleep well your not going to enjoy your stay quite as well if you would have had a great nights rest!!! The only bed in the condo that was nice and felt like home was the bedroom closest to the kitchen, the other 2 rooms had very out-dated matresses, so out-dated infact we didnt rest well & we had sore backs.Also if your going to rent this condo, beware that you have to buy everything from toilet paper to dish soap. We were kind enough to try & help the next guests by leaving those things behind along with a huge buckit of sand toys. One other thing I thought was strange- when you pay that much for a condo, I dont think I should have to remove the bed sheets & towels and put them in the laundry room to be washed,they even asked that I start the laundry, there should be a cleaning service that handles that NOT the guest that paid over 1600 for the week!!!Let me share with you a few of the nice things about the condo, the showers were very nice except we ran out of hot water fast. The screened in balcany was wonderful for wtching for dolphins and having lunch outside and drinking your morning coffee,There is one more thing on the beach side of the condo the weeds are tall and take away from the condo as well as get in the way of getting to the beach! Bring your weed eater LOL so other than these few issues. The stay was nice but costly. We wont be back! Sorry. enjoy your stay at Anna Maria Island and be prepared to spend some cash!!
Needs some attention

3 couples that were friends stayed at this location for 4 nights. We were visiting the island after having hectic schedules and just needing a place to relax and refresh. This location was perfect and the view off the lanai was wonderful. We had nice enough weather to be able to enjoy being outside on the enclosed balcony several times. We were disappointed with the arrangement of the bedrooms (one was actually a large closet with doors). This bedroom had a very comfortable bed, but the other two beds really needed updated and were not comfortable. We also felt that the furniture in the bedrooms could have been updated. This was not a good rental for 3 couples. The bathrooms were not very accessible for equal usage (the large one was off the master bedroom and the small one was shared)and we only had hot water in the one bathroom sink which made it difficult to brush your teeth or wash your hands without getting scalded. I was the one making reservations for our group and I felt badly that the unit was not better supplied and more convenient since we had all shared the cost and spent more than we normally would for a hotel. We enjoyed the island, but would not stay at this location again. This unit would probably work for a family, but it should be updated a little and supplies (such as dish soap and paper towels) should be available for at least the first day.
Great condo, nasty neighbors in live there

We rented the condo last spring. The unit is very spacious and has a great view. As soon as we arrived we were accused of making too much noise by the neighbor who lives next door and bringing too much sand up the outside stairs. Oh, I'm sorry I didn't know we had to sweep the outside stairs too! The downstairs renters had small children and were making most of the noise. The condo is well stocked and spacious, but the neighbors are terrible. They live there all year round. If you ask me the owners who want to rent their places should inform the other owners to not scare off renters. We love Anna Maria Island, but will think before renting here again. Also, the rental agency should've told us that most of the units are year round owners who really don't want people renting by the week there. Read more

Thanks so much for your feedback. We will be sure to notify the owner so they can have a conversation with the neighbor. Sand is a good thing! It means your "livin" and getting out to the beach! Hope to see you again on Anna Maria.
