“Exceeded expectations!”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2017

For several years, I've wanted to spend Christmas on AMI with my family. This past Christmas, I was able to do that, and we stayed at Happy Island Cottage. This was a wonderful house to stay in, and Alex was great and very responsive. The location was amazing - a 5 minute walk to the Gulf and on the "quiet" part of the island. The house was beautiful, and had everything we needed for our stay. I would highly recommend Alex's place and we will definitely be back to stay.

“Perfect holiday!”

Reviewed 19 Dec 2013

This house truly deserves its name - we stayed in the Happy Island Cottage for 15 nights with 7 people (4 adults, 3 little kids) and had a fantastic time. The house couldn't be in better condition: perfectly clean, spacious, well equipped with everything you need as a family - it just felt like home. The location of the house in the middle of the island also turned out perfect for us, shopping just 3 minutes away. We mostly went to the public beach (with toilets, showers, life guard and a little restaurant) which was only 5 minutes by car, very clean and never crowded. You can also go to the private beach (5 min walking distance) which is very nice too. The kids loved the little beach wagon, the pool and all the toys provided. Alex, the owner, even organised a high chair and a little bed for our 1-year-old. He was extremely quick, friendly and helpful right from the start, answered all our questions via email within 24 hours and greeted us personally (with a bottle of champagne) in the house when we arrived. Furthermore, he gave us excellent advice on things to do on and around the island. We would definitely love to come back one day - for another perfect holiday!

“paradise found!”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2013

From start to finish my experience with alex was seamless, honest and super efficient! All emails were replied to almost immediately and the odd phone call turned into a pleasant chit chat! The home was everything the site described and more...spotlessly clean and every detail so well thought out and well organised. After a long transatlantic flight it was a welcome surprise to find a bottle of champagne and a keylime pie (a local speciality) in the fridge - how thoughtful! The house was spectacular - the 60 inch tv screen a big bonus especially for my husband who immediately took charge of the remote control and sourced all the sports channels!The pool area was perfect - full sunshine all day and plenty of pool /beach towels too! The garage is massive and there we found all the bits you need for the beach and a cart to take them there. The beach was a short 5 min walk away...7 miles of white talcum powder sand and a nature reserve as well - with daily sightings of dolphins pelicans and all sorts of birds...keep an eye out for the turtle nests! The house is in Holmes Beach - mid island - so go north or south you are not far from anywhere! The island abounds with bars and restaurants...but no chains ! All are privately owned and very local...a great way to sample island life...very laid back! We hired bikes and toured the island up and down... a great way to discover new places you often miss in a car. This was our 4th visit to anna Maria and it wont be our last! Just dont tell everyone - lets keep the paradise that is anna Maria our little secret :-) Thanks alex and Elena - see you next year!

“Great holiday at Happy Island Cottage”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2013

Following a week's stay in Orlando we travelled to anna Maria for a second week at a more sedate pace. We were warmly welcomed by alex who showed us around his wonderful property and gave us a few hints of things we may be interested in seeing, doing and places to eat on the island during our stay. Alex was very personable, friendly and keen for us to contact him should we need any help while we were there. The house is truly lovely with three large bedrooms with some great mod-cons scattered all over the property including high-speed broadband, plasma or LCD Tv's in all rooms and a excellent kitchen. Alex's house was a real 'home' for our family of six (including four boys from 3 to 19 years) and we all enjoyed the pool for some fun and 'sun worship' - we were sad to leave when our time was up. The island itself and neighbouring areas were excellent, the white sandy beach just a couple of minutes stroll from the front door with the incredibly warm Gulf waters was amazing (the sea turtles had already laid their eggs in nests which were carefully marked and recorded so as not to be disturbed). We would definitely go back without hesitation and it was a pleasure to deal with alex from booking his property through to the conclusion of our break - highly recommended. Thanks!
