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.
This is a wonderful location for a little beach cottage! Plenty of space, walking distance to not only the beach, but restaurants, the local trolly stops, the list goes on! Cleanliness of the cottage was a little disappointing. When we first arrived, most of the rugs still had dust and dirt on them and you could tell they had not been touched or swept. There was still hair in the sink and it had not been wiped down or cleaned. Other than that, the place was perfect for our little weekend beach getaway!
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.
"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.
