John- Dec. 2018 Cute place. Close to the beach. Pictures are accurate. Plenty of room for Six. Katie R. June 2018 Home was clean and stocked with everything needed for fun at the beach! Chairs, toys, umbrellas & wagon. Beautiful beach is only a few minutes walk. We had a great stay with our family of 6. Loved the screened in patio for dinner & games in the evenings. We did not use the complex pool but it looked very nice. Chris C. August 2017 This place really does live up to the description, a beautifully decorated house on a stunning island. We spent a week here but wished we had stayed longer. The beaches on Anna Maria are some of the best I've seen, golden white sand, warm gulf waters, dolphins and plenty of secluded spots to watch the sunset. It's the restaurants and night life which complete the islands appeal. So many to choose from but I wouldn't leave without going to The Beachouse (at sunset) and lunch at Ginny & Janes. There are plenty of bars around the clock tower and the free 'monkey bus' (ask at the bar) will make you wish every town had this instead of uber! It is a magical place reminiscent of a bygone era, 50s America, and true escapism. We can't wait to stay again. Tim B. August 2017 If you're looking for a house with a touch of the beach but a strong accent on mid-century modern, this is the place for you. You'll love the snappy retro artwork and new furnishings eerily reminiscent of that famous Swedish store. The stylish three-level unit has a double garage below with a roomy open living room, dining room, large dining balcony and half bath on the middle floor. On the top floor, there are three comfy bedrooms and two like-new baths. The middle floor has wide-plank wood floors and a new white kitchen with colorful accents, new tile floor and bright, new appliances including a stacked washer and dryer in the half bath. With a pool in the back garden, it's just a short walk to the gorgeous beach, a supermarket and drug stores, and excellent restaurants and bars. You can stay on the island for days with everything you need. You'll be glad you stayed here. Jack W. August 2017 This is one of the coolest houses we've stayed in, huge comfy sofas, light, airy and so relaxing! The decor is like a boutique hotel, the prints on the wall are all beach/coast/surf themed and the vibe is proper west coast cool. The bedrooms have great soft beds, lots of wardrobe space and are very calming after a day at the beach. The dining area even has it's own record player so we listened to vinyl LPs they have while we had dinner. Also there's a buggy and loads of beach chairs, toys and buckets for the kids. A great place for a holiday. Sarah L. August 2017 This is beautiful house, which has been loving designed and furnished. We particularly appreciated the attention to detail such as the record player, board games and the wonderful lanai complete with fairy lights. The new kitchen is stunning and has everything you need. The house is conveniently situated close to the beach with a cool bar, ice cream parlour and coffee shop at the end of road, just a 5 minute bike ride away. A lovely house on a wonderful island, the perfect place to spend your vacation. James B. February 2017 Our family really enjoyed our stay at this house. It was very tastefully designed, and in top condition, all the bedding, utensils, furniture were of a top quality and that's a key thing when you're renting a place. The Pool was fantastic, very private, and mainly we had it to ourselves. It was just a few yards walk through the back garden. The local directions and information the owners provided about Holmes Beach and AMI were really helpful. We followed their advice and rented bikes for the whole family, cycled to the North Point, the piers, and down to the supermarket and main beach area. The beach is just a couple of blocks away and fantastic to walk on at either end of the day,a nd we spent whole days there using the trolley and chairs we found in the garage. The whole area felt safe, relaxed and the neighbours were friendly with plenty of waves and hellos. Overall we had a really good time and we felt we were in the hands of homeowners who really love their house, the area and most importantly wanted us to be relaxed and enjoy ourselves. Anonymous . February 2016 We were very pleased with Gulf Dream. We loved the house and the furniture - it was very comfortable, cool and modern. Maike S. November 2015 "We felt comfortable from the first moment in the apartment! It's perfect and very lovingly furnished .
