The house and pool area are wonderful. We had a great vacation. The other side of the duplex was not being used and I was very thankful for that because we wanted privacy.I would highly recommend the duplex if u used both sides or had extended family use the other side. The back yard pool area is fantastic and beautiful.we all from ages 12 to 50 enjoyed this area the most.
Thank you for the review! We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Pool Party South. We appreciate your business and we hope that you can come back and stay with us again soon!

Loved the house, the pool was wonderful. I would only recommend that you rent the whole house with people you know. We stayed for 2 weeks and only had to deal with young drinkers for 1 night. It was a little weird packing up our stuff with people sitting right outside the kitchen doors and not having any blinds to shut. We also ate dinner like that on our last night. The young drinkers didnt stay up to late though.
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll make it an annual event.

"Great house for 2 families vacationing together"
Left on 04/01/2010 for a stay in March 2010 | springbreak10Reviewed Apr 1, 2010Stayed Mar 2010
We recently stayed in Pool Party South -- family of four, with two teenage
sons, over spring break. The house is in a convenient/central location, walking
distance to a handful of restaurants and shops. Would have preferred not be
on a main road, but circulating waterfall from the pool created a nice white
noise that blocked out any traffic noise. House was adequately furnished and
plenty of room for 4 (sleeps 6 if you use sofa bed in sun room). It is a duplex
house and the lushly tropical planted back yard, grill and pool/hot tub area is
shared. Other guests were quite friendly, but it would be a better rental for
two families that know one another. Make sure to ask rental company for
instructions on how to operate/heat the pool and hot tub - none available on
site. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest), I'd rate this property at a 7.
Thank you for taking the time to review Pool Party. This is a very popular property for family reunions. We hope that you will consider Island Vacation Properties for your next vacation.
"Better than the north side"

We were all pleased by the Pool Party South side and by the team of Island Vacation Properties.
It was the 4th year I used your services, every time with different guests, and it was again a pleasure.
I like this villa because of the pool and the spa. The limitation with the pool heater only available for the spa was understandable but a bit disappointing since it's called the Pool Party for a reason and when the water of the pool is cold, it's no longer a party...
I would prefer to have the pool ready when we arrived (in fact everything was stopped because of a leak in the pool and a leak in the gas system). So we lost the first day for the pool start and the second day for the heater start. But your team react fast to correct the situation, thank you. Last year we had the pool party north side, same pool and spa, but the south side villa is way better than the small north side. Last year we killed 2 rats in the backyard. You called the exterminator fast. This year we saw another big rat on the roof but only 1 time so we didn't call you. One night he was scratching on the ceiling but we were leaving 2 days later. So we informed you of the situation when we left.
The check-in and check-out are fast, I like it that way. The possibily of doing all the transactions trough internet with credit card is perfect.
Next year if I can convince my girlfriend to rent again (she doesn't like the 27hrs road trip), I will surely contact you on your website, but for another villa probably.
I will try to find a cheap flight and a cheap car rental instead of driving.
Thank you for your trust, confidence and your return business, and taking the time to respond. Anna Maria Island was for most of its life a fruit grove (oranges, grapefruit, limes and lemons) and as such was an ideal spot for fruit rats. We have active pest control that does a great job, but nature is a balancing act. We have a couple of squirrels that have made it their quest to occupy the attic despite our best efforts to keep them out. We look forward to serving you again and hope you are able to return soon.
