If this was my first trip I would have been much more impressed, but I've stayed in much nicer homes on Anna Maria. That said the home is just worn, but otherwise clean. The floors really need replacing and the master bath needs renovating. There weren't as many utensils, dish towels, and frying pans as I would like when cooking for 6-8 people, but I was able to work around all the quirks of this home and enjoy our stay. The canal/dock was great for paddling and kayaking, but not equipped for a boat if that's important to you. Plus lots of storage for outdoor toys/bikes. Pool is very small and gets HOT in the summer. And I have to agree with other reviews that the upstairs is hot and musty. If you like a really cold house beware, there's a sign by the thermostat that says not to drop below 74degrees or unit may freeze!
Response from the owner Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your review of Plumfish and for coming to stay with us on your recent vacation. Of course, we are very sorry to hear that you were left a little disappointed with our rental home, and we would like to respond to some of your comments, to hopefully assure you of both our attention, but also our commitment to maintaining our very high standards and ensuring that all our guests enjoy their time with us on Anna Maria Island. Regarding the floors, I am sure you can imagine the level of wear and tear in our homes, and we like to use quality products and aesthetically pleasing materials that suit the look and feel of the home, hence using wood here. We are aware that there is some wear in parts of the house, and this is something we will be reviewing and looking at repairing and/or replacing as we come out of the season and into quieter months of the year, so as not to be disruptive to any guests. We also at this time of year, do a full inventory check of each home, sadly a lot of things do go missing, and whilst we try and replace items throughout the season to ensure guests have what they need, sometimes requirements will vary between families. However, we have looked at Plumfish and felt that what was there was adequate for the size of the house, but considering your comments we will look to add some additional items to make it easier for our guests. The air conditioning unit at Plumfish, was newly installed last year, and is a very good system. However, we have acorss our homes put notices to try and encourage our guests to maintain a temperature not lower than 74 degrees. It does get so hot on Anna Maria in the summer that units are unable to keep up and can sometimes freeze. At Plumfish we have put all new blinds upstairs and have additional fans in an attempt to help support such high temperatures! The pool is only a lap pool and yes is not very big. Again with the temperatures reaching such high points on the island, it will warm the water here quite quickly! We do hope that this goes someway to address some of the issues you have raised, and that you may consider to come and stay with us again, either at Plumfish or one of our other 5 properties across the island! With warm regards, Pineapplefish
“Plumfish is a great place to relax and enjoy anna Maria Island”
Four phrases that would describe Plumfish are "very private and quiet" "extremely clean" "spacious and well decorated" and "convenient location" We enjoyed the heated pool and scenic dock. We were impressed with the great kitchen and bathrooms. We liked Plumfish so much we've already made arrangements to return next year.
“Every amenity plus a view”
The management company was very accommodating and responsive from the reservation period and during our stay. Our favorite features of the houses were: the large screened in porch with dining table and lounge chairs, the kitchen was loaded with top-of-the-line equipment and loads of storage space and a view that made doing the dishes a pleasure, and a very clean pool nicely landscaped. We rented the house for 3 weeks and the pool and garden were serviced each week. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms new and clean. The bed linens and towels were the only thing below par, worn and shabby, but I was told they were going to be replaced after our stay. The house is at the end of a cup-de-sac street, so it was very quiet, but then all of aMI is quiet.
“Fun and comfy”
Plumfish was the perfect house for a girls vacation. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Our favorite part of the house was the porch. We loved sitting there and looking at the water and the vegetation. All in all...perfection.
“Great Island, Great Rental”
This was our first stay on anna Maria Island and we very much enjoyed it, particularly the north end of the Island where Plumfish is located. The home was just as advertised. Very nice in all regards. The pool, while not large, was perfectly fine for us. The landscaping was beautiful and created a very lush and private environment. The canal views and fishing from the dock also were very nice. Plumfish is located in close proximity to the beaches, the piers, shopping, restaurants,etc. We walked to all those things and biked everywhere as well. Beachbums, The General Store and Sato Realty were all very user friendly. We know the owners welcome recomendations so we offer only two modest ones. For reasons we couldn't figure out, the large screen TV in the living area had certain channels that did not respond to the volume button on the remote. The other channels worked perfectly, as did the two bedroom TVs. A minor tech glitch, easily fixed I'm sure. Also there is a small metal two or three step ladder at the end of the dock which is rusted and barnacle encrusted. I do not believe it is safely useable and should be replaced. Again, an easy fix but one we would definitely do if we owned this home. We hope to return to Plumfish and would highly recommed it to any of our friends.
“Total relaxation in a fabulous location”
This is a lovely villa in a great location. Anna Maria is a very beautiful island with wonderful beaches and wildlife. We all loved dining on the porch overlooking the canal and watching the fish jump and the birds fly overhead We look forward to returning to Plumfish and anna Maria
Response from the owner Thank you so much for letting us know about your stay! We look forward to welcoming you back to Plumfish. Warm regards
We always stay in rental homes across the country, and enjoyed the Plumfish very much! Great secluded location,felt safe for our family,& kids loved the canal setting. Perfect for 1 family with 2 or 3 children or two couples. Because of only 2 bathrooms which are only in bedrooms, makes it alittle hard to have guests over or 2 small families with kids, as they have to go into parents bedrooms? Also would be so nice to have comfotable chairs/ rockers with padding on screen porch as then u could spend time on the beautiful screen porch overlooking canal. The chairs out there now and around pool very uncomfortable :( Would also be nice to be provided with cleaning supplies to be able to keep hse clean throught week. We bought cleaners, sprays,dishsoaps,laundry soap,softner & left at house for the next family . We would love to come back again & stay atPlumfish. Pineaplefish Rental Company great to work with! Thank for everything !
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted that you had such a great time, Plumfish does have a fantastic location. We do use a lot of Adirondack chairs in our houses. They are extremely durable, can be kept outdoors, are easy to clean and being very heavy, don't get lost (unfortunately, we have had many instances of outdoor furniture being taken to the beach and left there!). The flat armrests are suitable for setting food and drinks on too, which we often find guests find quite convenient. And, we are sorry that you were unable to find any cleaning products. We do have cleaning products in each of the houses, and replace them when empty, but it seems it may have been missed here in this instance. Our management agents Sato are always on hand and would have come over with some replacements, but we realize from your note that we need to make guests aware that they should be there!! Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us, and we hope we can welcome your family back again for your next vacation! Warm regards.
“Plumfish, a quiet, comfortable retreat, inviting screen porch an”
This was our fifth time vacation on the island, however our first time staying in Plumfish. I would like compliment Sato Real Estate with the service provide. We have used many of the rental agencies on the Island and Sato has that personal touch that the others have seem to have forgotten. Plumfish is a great house. It is decorated colorfully and comfortable. If you like to cook the kitchen is awesome. It was well stocked and a joy to cook in. A set of pyrex baking dishes would be a welcome addition though. The pool was clean and enjoyed every afternoon. There are two items that I would like to draw to your attention. In the King room the sheets had a quarter sized old blood stain. You could tell that it was washed and put back on the bed. No way it could have been overlooked. We travel with our own sheets so we were prepared. I would check quality control with your cleaning staff. The air condition needs to be addressed. It works great and the whole house is cool. However, it vibrates the refrigerator, kitchen stove, master bed and floor. In the guest book this problem is mention several times. It became an issue mostly at night when we were trying to sleep. If I was to stay in Plumfish again I would inquire to see if this problem had been addressed. The only other comment I have is about the inside dinning table. The house sleeps 8. The inside table seats 4. The table on the deck seats 6. Sometimes its just to hot to sit outside. I would suggest a similar table with a drop leaf and couple extra chairs for inside dinning. Just a thought. Please understand we enjoyed our stay very much. Most companies dont ask for reviews and if these items were addressed Plumfish would be that much better.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your feedback. We are always very keen to get reviews from our guests, to ensure that we can maintain our high standards and address any issues, so that all our guests have a great time with us. The bedroom sheet you mentioned has since been replaced of course, and we are sorry that you found it in this condition. We are also looking at the air conditioning as part of our annual review as we come out of season, and do take on board your comments regarding the seating arrangements for larger parties and how we can address this. We do hope that we can welcome you back to Plumfish. Please do call our office and chat through these issues you have raised, and we hope that we will have been able to address them suitably for you to want to return. Thank you again for your time in reviewing Plumfish, it is very much appreciated. Best wishes from the Pineapplefish!
We had a wonderful stay on anna maria island. It was one of the most beautiful vacations ever. We enjoyed our vacation home, the plumfish, very much. It is a wonderful place to relax. (The only issue was the bad Wifi conection)
“a very memorable holiday”
The staff at Sato were fantastic. The home was a real wow factor, so beautiful inside and out.Great eating outside with b.b.q 4 adults and 2 older children stayed here and very comfortable. Location was 5 min walk to beach and about a 10 min walk to where shops are. Big Publix about 10 min drive. People on anna Maria so friendly and very relaxed atmosphere. fresh fish markets a must to visit and buy from just other side of Cortez bridge Loved the island so much looking to return a.s.a.p truly beautiful there. Best part watching dolphins play in the ocean very close to shore.
