“Best rental on AMI”
This is a classy place to stay. Situated toward the north end of the island at the extreme end of the cul-de-sac that is Tarpon Street, this property could not be better sited as a base to explore and enjoy Anna Maria Isand. Within a 4-5 minute bike ride are gulf side beaches, the Sandbar beach restaurant (have dinner watching the sun go down at a table with your toes in the sand while having great food), City Pier, Ginny & Jane's for breakfast, Beach Bums for all rentals needs (kayaks, paddleboards, Bikes etc.), the general store for food (check out their cuban sandwiches), beers and wines, as well as a host of boutique shops. The Rod n Reel Pier (my favourite) is a little further but has a great little bar and a restaurant that you have to try out. Draft Budweiser is $1.50 and comes in a plastic cup so you can take it outside to watch the fish swim under the pier and the pelicans dive for food. Honeyfish is a canal facing property at the end of Tarpon Street so no through traffic by car, bike or on foot. Very private. Not only is it canal facing - it has what has to be the best canal view possible with far reaching views over Bimini Bay rather than simply looking at another house over a canalway. The house is large, with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Furnishings and fittings are of a very high standard and enhance the luxury feel of the place. Equipment such as televisions, sound systems, kitchen aids and washing facilities are all excellent. On arrival, the great room comprising kitchen, dining and living rooms seemed much larger than the photographs on the rental company website. Outside there is a large canal facing deck with ample seating. To the side is a large swimming pool which is screened in from view from the canal for privacy. If it gets a little hot at the beach, then head back to the house and jump in the pool to cool off for a while. From the dock or even from the sofas in the living room, watch the wildlife over Bimini Bay. Exotic birdlife, jumping fish and dolphins were all frequent visitors. This is a gem of a place. A truly relaxing environment in a quality setting. It may not be a cheap place to stay but I would recommend pushing the boat out. Having THAT view in THAT location made all the difference to our holiday. There are cheaper places to stay for sure but there is only one Honeyfish. You will not be disappointed. I would return in a heartbeat and would recommend it to anyone as an ideal vacation base on a wonderful holiday island.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are absolutely delighted that you loved Honeyfish and enjoyed our little island. You certainly have picked out some favorite places and passtimes of our own too! Mintfish is another of our rental homes that sit on this edge of water, with the very same expansive views and fabulous outside area of which to enjoy it! We do hope we can welcome you back to see us again in the very near futures. Best wishes to you and your family!
“Spacious home in a great location.”
Rental agency was quick to respond to our problems in the house. The home was spacious and very adequate for our party of 8. Wonderful view of the canal. Kitchen had many cabinets and was semi-well stocked. Coffee maker is a cheap model and should be replaced for a larger model. It took two days for the refrig to cool and we had to put food in a styrofoam cooler with ice to keep it from spoiling! Thing we liked best was the view. Least was the kitchen.
“Honey fish million dollar view”
Best thing about this rental is the outside living, non stop action on and in the surrounding water, dolphins, manatees, jumping rays, jumping fish, sea birds, Fantastic. Home is in need of some updates, tired bbq, old carpeting, etc, But if you want a peaceful, gorgeous view this does place has all that!
“Travelled 4000 miles and not dissapointed”
Start with would we come again (always the first question to ask) and yes, we all would. First impression was wow... and that lasted all the 2 weeks. Its position is truly spectacular, and would only be bettered if its view was the ocean itself. also its only a 4 minute walk to the bayside of the ocean (pretty tiny beach) and around 7-8 mins to the gulfside and a truly amazing beach) We rented a boat and the house's dock was perfect. Kitchen is large and well fitted, it all looked fine to us. there was only 3 in our party, so we had much moe than we ever needed, but if you went to the limit of the occupancy then thats when maybe some people thought there wasnt enough stuff? A huge fridge freezer, seperate wine cooler was great. So too the gas BBQ outside on the deck. The pool was great, the large deck and dock fantastic. Plently of chairs outside, lots of towels and linen and we also gound a shed by the pool full of previous renters left behind beach chairs and stuff (bonus) The house furnishings were lovely, expect a rental that looks maybe 2 or 3 years old in terms of most of the wear. Ive been to 4 and 5 star hotels that dont look this good. Plenty of small shops and places to grab a beer or snacks as well as 4 good restaurants.all within 20 min walk Major supermarkets are within a 4 min drive Being critical, there was a few things I would change: The rear door locks were not secure indeed the lock from the bedroom with the poolside door actually fell off when we tried to open that door There is a 3 storey house just been built right nextdoor, looks very out of place and spoils any view there may have been from the front of the house, thats progress I guess. As the amazing view was out back its not so important, more mildly annoying
“Anna Maria island - pineapple fish villas”
Lovely house, fabulous location. A little bit of maintenance wouldn't go a miss but really that's just being picky, choose this house and you won't be disappointed
“Best position on island”
Second time at Honeyfish and it didnt disappoint. Great location and the deck is a super place to watch wildlife the views are amazing. Sip cocktails while watchng eagles fish,the occasional manatee and the dolphin which turn up most afternoons.The real estate agent Sato has some great folks and nothing is too much trouble. The only things which could improve the property is a cordless telephone as the only one is fixed in one of the bedrooms and the dishwasher and wine cooler are bit past there sell by date. But overall a lovely place and have no hesitation in rebooking.We have stayed at a number of Pineapplefish properties and they are by far the best on the island.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your review and being such wonderful guests of ours. We appreciate your comment regarding the dishwasher and the wine cooler and will take a look at these. We look forward to seeing you again next year! Warm regards
“Paradise on anna Maria”
We are in love with anna Maria island,beautiful Beach , the home we lied very much, Honeyfish is completely as we wish, an interior as a Beachhouse. We didn't miss anything, very good kitchen. Dolphins,sunrise bayvieuw frommel de house.we have to come backin this paradise.
We had a fantastic time at Honeyfish. We loved everything about the island and the house was just perfect, both inside and out. There is not one thing that I would want to change. After a week at the Hardrock Hotel, which I must admit we did enjoy in a pleasure/pain kind of way, coming to stay with you was the complete opposite and much needed. I had read previously on tripadvisor that the kitchen was not well equipped. Admittedly we did not do much cooking but there seemed to be ample of everything. All 8 of us hired bikes for the week and indeed we did not have a car. This added to our enjoyment, except the trip coming back from Publix supermarket which seemed a lot further on the return journey! We also hire kayaks and had them delivered to the house. Beach bums were fantastic by the way. We have told everyone about Honeyfish and would love to return. I even rode around to check out the positions of the other houses, which are part of Pineapplefish. I think that being on the water with a dock and only a couple of minutes ride from the beach is the best of both worlds. In fact am I right in thinking Mintfish is the other house in the same position as Honeyfish with the dock, a view, a pool and close to the beach? The other thing I noticed when kayaking is that Honeyfish has the best view of the bay where as most of the other houses, although on the water, their view was restricted to the house opposite. Returning and staying with you is certainly now on my to do list and I hope that it will be sooner rather than later. The good news is that having done the 'Orlando thing' for the first week, we don't have to worry about that again and can spend longer on anna Maria. We loved it, loved it, loved it!!!
It is a beautiful location and it was clean. But when we arrive the aC wasn't working properly, so I checked the filter on the laundry room side of the house and found it to be almost completely blocked with dust. I changed the filter but the coils had frozen already, so the aC man came out and thawed them, it then worked properly. Also on the day of our wedding, as my new wife was getting dressed, she stepped into the restroom into a puddle of water, as it turns out, the hot water heater was leaking, it took every towel in the house to clean in up. Honestly we would stay in one of your properties again, but just wanted you to know about the maintenance of the aC, that was preventable though the water heater was not Thank you...Jim
Response from the owner Hi Jim, and thank you so much for your review and for the wonderful photo's you posted too. Congratulations and we hope you had a fantastic time on the island. Since your review we have made some significant changes to the process in which we manage the filters and air conditioning units. These units across all houses do, as I am sure you can understand, work extremely hard, and we do our best to discuss with our guests the best way in using them to get not only the best effect from them, but help in saving energy. We have a contract in place with a local A/C maintenance company, who services the units every 6 months, and we are continuing to review if this needs to be done more frequently. In addition to this, we now have a new policy in place that the filters are replaced no more than once a month, so as to avoid, to much dust build up. The hot water heater has also been repaired. Again, thank you for your time in writing your review and we hope this has gone some way to assure you that we have dealt with the issues that you found. We hope we can welcome you back to Anna Maria and Pineapplefish...perhaps for your wedding anniversary!
“Never a dull moment with that view!”
Perfect view every sunrise to sunset. Loads of outdoor living space. Very comfortable inside as well. Great service from the rental company upon our arrival to fix a few things in need of repair, and the great cleanup crew that had a disaster on their hands from the previous renters. Kitchen does need a better dishwasher and refrigerator, as well as quick replacement of the counter bar stools before someone is injured. Had a large group of adults over one afternoon and wished the kitchen was better equiped. Need more serving trays, bowls etc for crowds. Bbq is less than adequate as well. Hooks on the back of the bathroom doors would be helpful too. A second blue box for recycling is also suggested. Truth be told, we loved our stay and would love to stay there again ! and again!
