Beautiful property in quiet location 5 minute walk to beach
We have stayed at many Florida vacation rentals over the years and this property had the nicest equipped kitchen overall. The house was clean when we arrived and we all had plenty of room. The pool area is beautiful and private and included four chase lounge chairs and six other chairs and a table under cover. We called the owner the first day regarding the gas grill and she made sure we had a full propane tank by the next afternoon. The property backs up to a canal and we had fun watching manatees and fish who liked to jump out of the water! Like any vacation rental over two weeks time, there were a couple of minor issues but the good news is the owner was very prompt in returning our calls and rectifying any issue. If we travel to the Holmes Beach area again in the future we certainly would stay here again.
Great location, spacious home great for little kids!
A fantastic location, 5 minute walk to the beach, to the excellent Anna Maria beach cafe, and a ten minute walk to the grocery store. The property has views of the ocean from the crows nest on the 4th floor of the house and seeing sunrise from the master bedroom on the third floor every morning was a treat.
We were a little unfortunate with weather in the 60’s but Vera and her husband walked us through fixing the pool heater and we were able to enjoy the pool each day.
We enjoyed the spacious rooms and clean bathrooms. There are TV’s everywhere and the ping pong was a nice distraction. There were many beach towels, pool/beach related toys/floats/ buckets as well as beach tents, a wagon and chairs that you could take to the beach. That was fantastic.
The grill is old and wasn’t working properly but upon notifying the owners they should be fixing it. The kitchen could use some new pans that don’t wobble and pots that have lids but otherwise is very well appointed with plenty of plates, cups, glasses, sharp knives and cutlery. There is a large high top dining table that seats 8-9 comfortably. Dishwashing liquid was provided as was laundry detergent. Salt, pepper, oil and three tubs of old bay seasoning were provided- fitting for the great seafood you can buy nearby.
We were so lucky to see a dolphin in the water just behind the house on our final day - we wished we had spent more time on the dock.
A key code provided for check in which was convenient. There was no way to play music so bring your own speaker (they have a Sonos sound bar for the TV but it was on a separate network). WiFi worked very well throughout the house and was very fast (300+mbps).
Our little kids (1-3yr) were able to toddle around safely and they loved the beach. We used a bench to block the stairs from the living room. A crib was provided which was awesome.
All in all this is a wonderful property and we would return if they would have us, though if returning at this time of year (Jan) we’d look for a house with a hot tub, hint hint Vera!
Great property and location
Great property. Responsive management company and real nice/helpful owner. Would certainly visit again.
Amazing house with amazing views
Had an amazing stay! The house was perfect & had everything we needed. Loved hanging out in the pool, while watching the manatees pop their heads up. We played ping pong & fished off the dock. We rented paddle boards & took them out in the canal & walked them to the beach one day. Loved having the beach wagon to load all of our stuff to the beach, which is about a 5 minute walk. They have coolers, floats, beach chairs, everything you need for the beach, in the garage. The owner, Vera was very easy to get a hold of when we had questions. Will definitely be back! One thing I would suggest is I would not recommend this house for the elderly, due to the amount of stairs there are. There is not access to the elevator, as it is on the other side of the house, which is closed off.
So glad that you had a wonderful vacation at our home. Laura, we do not have an elevator, so what is closed off is an owner’s closet. Yes, there are stairs that may be challenging for some elderly people. My 90 year old mom could always make it up to the first main living area and stayed in one of the bedrooms there. We love vacationing there ourselves with the entire family. The Manatees are such an extra attraction since you don’t always get to see them elsewhere. I look forward to hearing from you again.
A week of beautiful weather, great time with family and friends!
We had a wonderful week, the weather was beautiful, the house was beautiful and the company, our family and friends, was priceless! We saw manatees every day in the canal behind the house, what a great experience!
The Grand Floridian is a beautiful house, it was perfect for a vacationing with friends. The location was ideal, very close to the beach and the trolley was convenient for traveling around the island. The pool was chilly the first couple of days and after reading the other reviews we thought it was probably set correcting so we didn't question it. We finally called Brian and Vera, they sent someone out and discovered it wasn't heated at 82 degrees. The issue was resolved quickly and the pool was wonderful. Don't hesitate to contact them, they are very attentive and were appreciative to hear from us. We all felt very comfortable living in this home, the beds were great, kitchen was well stocked and there was plenty of privacy outside. Would rent this home again if vacationing at Anna Maria Island.
Mon Grand Floridian est situé sur le seul canal naturel sur Anna Maria Island. Voir lamantins comme ils nagent et gambader par le quai de la cour.
