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.
Cute condo within a short walking distance to a beautiful sandy beach. The location is great, there are restaurants and shops within walking distance. Anna Maria Pier and Rod & Reel Pier a short drive away. This condo is an end unit and has a very nice back yard and plenty of room to the side of the house for you to bring your boat. This area has a gate and is private. The condo is very comfortable with good internet and TV. The owner Tina is wonderful and is quick to answer your questions. We will be coming back.
"This condo and beach are the the best of the best, great set up,awesome vacation spot!"

This was our second year staying here and we absolutely love it! The beach is clean and not crowded at all even on a holiday weekend. The weather is excellent and so much to do on the island. We rented a paddle board for the week, which was delivered and picked up for us! So nice! This is a true vacation but also like being at home...less expensive than a hotel and you can cook meals for a lot less than going out all the time. It's nice to be able to do a load of laundry if you need to. It's nice to not have to bring towels, beach chairs and umbrella, it's already there! The view from the lanai is spectacular, we spent a lot of time out there, we ate our meals there,played cards, watched sunsets. Bedrooms are so comfortable ,bathrooms are spacious,TV in every room, books to read, just so convient and relaxing.
Has everything you need! Pool is awesome - we didn't even make it to the beach until day 2 since the pool was so relaxing. Bikes were really nice to have - we used them quite a bit instead of renting a car. We will return :)
We will definitely come back and stay here. Reasonable rate, privacy, and only two blocks from the beach. Location is everything and with flying from Pennsylvania so many conveniences. Your supplied with anything you may need for the beach, outside shower and if you have any questions you can submit an email and you're answered immediately. E-Z Check In with absolutely no problems.
