Handy For Everything – We had a great stay for our moms getaway! What we loved most was the location. We could walk to everything: beach, shopping, restaurants, market etc. We will be back!
Perfect Spot – Great location right next to the beautiful beach and restaurants. Very quiet, very quaint!
Great Sunset View – This house is the perfect location for a winter getaway. It is right on the beach, the sunsets can be watched from the porch and the beach is quiet. We loved watching the dolphins. We had a lot of fun on Anna Maria. We look forward to returning.
Looking Forward To Next Visit – We had a wonderful trip and hope to be able to return someday!
Birdwatcher’s Delight – Shell Cottage is one of three cottages sharing a heated pool and lovely backyard. It would be ideal for a larger group who wants to vacation together but have their own space. There is a lovely hammock in one corner under palm trees that is not shown in the pictures. You are a mere two minutes walk from the beach and six minutes from Pine Street restaurants and shops. As an added bonus, we had a view of an osprey nest and got to watch the birds fly in and out…
Perfect Break – Everything went very well and we enjoyed our stay very much.
Beautiful Beach House Offering Stunning Views of The Ocean – Communication with owner helped set expectations, very nice to work with. This house has everything we wanted, privacy, privacy, privacy, and a stunning view of the water. The beach-facing glass doors across the house ensure you can see the water from in the house, but we spent most of our time on the deck. Due to Covid, we took all our dinners as takeout, we cooked brunches at home, but every meal was at the deck table, watching the ocean … Overall we would absolutely rent again, you can’t beat that view… we got just what we needed, a beautiful private place to watch the sunset! We hope to make it a yearly trip!
We Had A Wonderful Time At the Beach House – We really enjoyed our stay, as usual! Is it possible to provisionally reserve it for Thanksgiving week next year? We hope to return.
This Property Has A Magical Location – The porch has an incredible view of the beach and sea. We watched the gorgeous sunsets every night! The house was fully equipped and we had a great time together! One suggestion would be to upgrade the mattresses. Looking forward to booking with you again.
We Very Much Enjoyed Our Stay – The house was the perfect size for a family of four. The pool is great, very nice and sheltered so when it is windy elsewhere it is still warm by the pool and it is heated. The location of this house is great, walking distance to shops and restaurants and close to the beach which is beautiful. The master bed is a little on the softer side and the master bathroom is a little small/crowded with the way the door opens. Washer and dryer were great to have, as well as the dishwasher. We did not use the grill, which was charcoal. Beach chairs are provided which we used a lot. Thanks for the great stay!
Cute Cottage And Excellent Location – The location of the property was wonderful. Very short walk to the beach and easily walkable to main Pine Street. The cottage was cute and we loved having the pool. It was the perfect size for our small family of three. Everything was exactly as expected from the pictures and description. Would definitely stay here again.
Perfect Vacation – This cottage is exactly as described and is a perfect getaway from the crowded beach scene that some parts of this area are known for. The location is ideal with a quick 2-minute walk to the beach. The part of the beach that this location grants access to is clean with lots of space to stretch out. The property is perfectly maintained, the pool was very clean, and the air conditioning worked well. The property managers were very responsive and excellent to deal with – the most responsive I have interacted with through VRBO so far. Overall this was a very memorable vacation and this cabin was certainly central to the experience.
A Great Escape – This is exactly what we needed during these times! Beautiful place and easy walk to the beach! Thank you!
Island Fans – 5th trip to AMI. We love it here.
Back Again – Great to be back here for third time.
A Terrific Holiday! We enjoyed it very much.
Top Tips – Make sure to walk to Bean Point and try the tequila and lime oysters at Oyster Bar.
The Best Place – We had a wonderful time during our stay at Starfish cottage!! Both the cottage and AMI are the best.
Perfect Location – We really enjoyed our stay at Shell Cottage. The location was perfect. Communication with management was easy. We enjoyed relaxing in the pool. The refrigerator was small but it worked out ok since there was only 2 of us. The cottage was just right for what we needed during our stay. I would definitely stay at Shell Cottage again.
What A Gem – Staying away from Covid-19. This place was just what we needed to get away and relax. Location near perfect and the cottage had everything we needed. Thanks for sharing this gem with us. We will be back.
Great Vacation Cottage!! The cottage was clean and perfect for our little family get away! Short walk to the beach and plenty of room on the beach for social distancing. We had an issue with the air conditioner one night and Sharon did a great job in getting someone out to check it out that night. We had a great time and will definitely be back!!!
Festive Break – Wonderful holiday over Christmas and New Year. Hope to return.
Perfect Location! Cosy cottage just a short walk to the beach and island shops and restaurants. It was just like the photos and description on the website. It did not disappoint. Only wish it had a TV in the bedroom, but otherwise it was just what we were looking for!
So pleased with Starfish Cottage. Clean, light and airy. Pool area is awesome and beach spectacular. Thank you!
Our Perfect Beach Escape – The cottage was all we had hoped it would be. The pool was amazing. So nice to come out of your room right into a beautifully set pool. The walk to beach is very short. The beach is almost secluded. Just like a fairy tale island getaway!
Great Place – What a great place! We will be back!
Home From Home – Came in the day, Tropical Storm Emily made landfall right here! Very rare happening, but it blew through so fast that we only saw the aftermath. Great little cottage and has everything we needed for our week. Location is great, we’re so glad it was available, so thanks for our little home away from home – Cheers
Relaxing Time – Had a fantastic two weeks here on AMI – first time here in Shell Cottage and we had a very relaxing time.
A Wonderful Relaxing Break. The perfect place to not feel guilty about, kicking back and doing nothing at all!
Obrigada! Great location. We missed nothing and felt very comfortable.
Great Surfing – We definitely enjoyed our time here and will come back! Loved the house and had great time surfing!
Amazing Holiday – Lovely place to sit by the pool and relax. As always the beach and the sunset were beautiful! Had an amazing holiday – can’t wait to hopefully return soon
Beautiful – Fantastic and beautiful place to stay and enjoy the peace and nature.
Lovely House – Your beach house was perfect for our family. It’s so well kept and was spotlessly clean. Despite the relentless winds, our grandchildren loved the full waters and enjoyed playing the indoor games too. Thank you for the use of your lovely house.
Really Idyllic Holiday – Enjoyed the beach in the cool mornings and evenings. We rented a beach tent at Beach Bums which was great! We can’t wait to return. Really Idyllic Holidays, lovely!!
Incredible Island – We loved our stay at the Starfish Cottage just as much as we enjoyed our first trip to AMI. What an incredible island. We enjoyed wonderful days on the beach & at the pool. We will be back!
A wonderful holiday in a very nice house! We will gladly come again.
Love In The Air – Enjoyed the cottage and this trip will never be forgotten. We’re engaged!!!
Happy New Year! I loved Seahorse Cottage. Pool area very relaxing. Beautiful beach. Enjoyed biking around the Island. Lovely time.
Third Time Here. That says it all! We will be back!
This Was A Wonderful Rental – Nicely decorated, great location. The spa/pool was used every day. We walked the beach every day and also appreciated the use of beach chairs and towels. Our weather was perfect 70s every day. Enjoyed nightly sunsets at the beach. We hope to come back.
Very High Standard – It is a lovely little cottage of a very high standard and the location is perfect. We will definitely consider returning sometime soon. Thank you for helping us towards a fantastic holiday!
Paradise – A wonderful few days in paradise after the craziness of Orlando. A beautiful, well stocked home and so close to a perfect stretch of beach.
Perfect For Sharing – We enjoyed our stay very much. Having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms was perfect for 4 senior ladies!. Our location was perfect as I love being close to Ana Maria Island, and the ocean was really a very short walk from the condo. Everything that we needed was close by. I would do it again.
Enjoy The Silence – We had a nice stay in this lovely house! Everything worked fine for us a group. Good waves!! A place to enjoy the silence after a good surf.
Real Rest – We loved our stay in Vilarinha and the house is great! Everything was impeccable and with lots of equipment. We will get back there again for sure, because we totally forgot our routines in that place, and had a real rest and peace that we were in so much in need of!
Close To Nature – This house is magical, home away from home, and close to nature and the hills. Love it!
Tranquillity – Casa do Medronho in Vilarinha will stay in our hearts. Fantastic location and tranquillity for holidays. We’ll be back!
Just Perfect – Morning and evening beach walks, spotted lots of manatees. Cottage very comfortable and really well located. Pool is great. We will be coming back to AMI again, it’s just perfect.
So Comfortable – We really enjoyed staying in Casa Verde! The village and the valley are very beautiful, and the house was great! It’s so well – equipped and comfortable – I’m quite sure we will visit Vilarinha once again.
Best House On The Island! Enjoyed good weather – spent many hours chilling on the deck. Not our first visit and hopefully not our last! Back to Blighty today and the BIG CHILL.
Clean And Well Stocked – We enjoyed our stay at Casa Verde very much. Nice house, well stocked with inventory and it was very, very clean.
