Hi all!!! We fell in love with Anna Maria and BON AMI sealed the deal! What a warm and friendly home. We felt we were at our own house. Kids and In-laws had a wonderful time; from the pool to beach and then the trolley… Everything was magnificent! Thank you again for helping us making memories

Thank you for opening your beautiful home “BON AMI” to us. Anna Maria is a gorgeous place to visit and it won’t be our last time either. We loved watching the wonderful sunsets, walking to the amazing beaches and eating delicious ice cream and donuts. We can’t wait to come back.

We loved staying in the BON AMI! The pictures on the internet do not do this house justice. We really enjoyed spending time together without feeling cramped. The kiddos loved the pool area and all the toys. We had a little trouble with the air conditioner working, but as soon as we called they sent someone right away to take care of the problem. We came to Anna Maria to get married! It was perfect! The location of this house was exactly what we were looking for. We loved that there were plenty of towels, beds, sitting room and a large dinner table. The cabinets in the kitchen were filled with everything we needed and more! We will always have special memories of the Bon Ami where we stayed for our wedding weekend. Thank you so much for opening your home to us. We will definitely be coming back.

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at BON AMI. The house was very comfortable, the pool heaven, and the location was perfect! We will be back to AMI at some point next year and will definitely be in touch with you all. Thank you for your great service and hospitality.

We’re a family from Germany and booked Bon Ami via Homeaway/FeWo direkt. Our stay was all in all very nice: the location is nearly perfect, only a few steps to the beach. The house itself is completely equipped, nothing was missing, everything was working well, the atmosphere was easy and relaxed. The only thing which made the difference between “very good” and “excellent” was a really loud cleaning/heating station for the pool, located directly beneath our bedroom window. So the night was over exactly at seven o’clock in the morning. Some ideas to reduce that noise would be quite helpful! But to repeat it again: it was nice and we would recommend Bon AMI to our friends.

Owner’s Response: Thank you so much for leaving such a positive review and bringing to our attention the noisy pool equipment. We are happy to report that the noise has been taken care of and we hope to have you back as our guests soon so you can enjoy nice, quiet mornings in bed!
We spent a week here with our teenage boys and my parents. The house was large and clean with everything needed to cook full meals. Large balconies and patio to spend the morning and evenings. Plenty linens/towels for the family. Two big bathrooms. Nice warm pool to cool off. Five minutes walking distance to the perfect beach with a large sandbar. Five minutes walking distance to the pier and restaurant. This was my parents’ first trip to Florida and we are already planning the next one to this beautiful island. We will definitely consider renting this house again. The reason for not giving 5 stars, is that the leather couch is very worn and we covered it with a sheet to sit on it. The bedrooms are big enough to make everyone feel comfortable, however the guest bedroom mattress is very soft.

Owner’s Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed our beach house, but we are also very sorry that the leather couch was in the condition it was. We are glad to report that the couch has now been replaced with a brand new sofa! We hope you consider renting our place again and enjoy it even more!
Great job! Beautiful & clean home. More than we expected. You guys know what you are doing for sure. We had a great time on a much needed vacation. Everyone who came down for the wedding and rented with other companies commented on how nice the house, the app and our check in process was. Thank you so much and we will rent from you again!

Loved Anna Maria and the house! Can’t wait to come back. Highlights include: Captain Patsy (eco-ride, dolphins playing); Waterfront Restaurant; the beach; paddleboarding; miniature golf; Poppos, donuts, everything! The donuts were amazing and we keep getting more each time. The boat ride was so fun! We saw a manatee and dolphins followed our boat and played in the wake.

The house is really nice! Thank you for opening up your home for us! Love the pool, it’s really warm and the beach is just around the corner! All the people are so friendly here! We spotted dolphins, rays and lots of birds . . . It’s been an awesome time!

The service received throughout by Coastal Cottages AMI the booking process was second to none and the house was in perfect condition when we arrived. The house internally and externally was perfect for us, along with the position from the beach and the swimming pool. We did experience a few problems with the pool heating but the service in rectifying the problem was quick and efficient. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Your home is lovely. Beach is beautiful. Our third time on AMI. Suggestions: lamps to ready by, overheads not enough; three wine glasses not enough; sheets could be replaced. Thank you for sharing your AMI home with us!

Firstly, Coastal Cottages AMI are great to deal with. They are always accommodating and helpful in every way. This was our second year in this home, and we love it. Location to the beach couldn’t be better. Quiet and safe but close to restaurants and shops. The house is clean, comfortable, and extremely well equipped, tons of dishes, cooking utensils, appliances and best of all a lovely heated pool in the beautifully landscaped yard.

We have visited many areas and stayed in all kinds of accommodations we certainly would rate this first class. Everything needed to make this a terrific vacation was provided by the owners of this property. We were able to easily walk to beaches and shopping areas, we are golf enthusiast and courses were within easy driving distances. We would certainly recommend this house to anyone.

We had a wonderful time relaxing and playing together at BON AMI. We will definitely recommend this house to our friends. Everything there made us feel at home with all the cooking utensils and gadgets. Even the sand buckets, shovels, outdoor shower and umbrellas were a huge asset for beach life. Thanks for making the reservation process very easy.

The house was very nice and the kitchen was quite adequate for a family meal. We enjoyed the pool several times in December, and the quick walk to the beach was more than we’d hoped for! The bedroom at the back of the house had an outside door, which was a little uncomfortable for the person sleeping there, but that would be my only criticism. Overall, we loved the area and the house was very comfortable.

The house is lovely! And the beach nearby was even better. We enjoyed lounging in the pool – a rare treat for those of us who normally are shivering this time of year. Thank you for opening your home to us!

Thank you for a wonderful relaxing time. We loved being close to the beach. We saw sting rays, crabs, fish and, of course, the wonderful sound of the ocean and breeze!

This was our first time visiting your quaint town of Anna Maria. Your home is absolutely wonderful. We felt right at home at BON AMI! Even with tropical storm Karen out in the Gulf, we had THE BEST weather. We couldn’t have asked for a better forecast! We would wake up every morning and fish early at the pier, then head to the beach for a few hours, then finish up floating in the pool every afternoon. We would then eat, sleep and repeat! Thank you so much for opening up your home to us. We are already planning our next vacation of many here.
P.S. The sunsets are magnificent!

Our stay here was absolutely amazing. This is such a beautiful home and was perfect for my family. The location couldn’t be any better being right next to the beach which we visited every day, and was so relaxing. We will most definitely be returning next year and we thank you so much for opening up your home to us!

Such a beautiful home and perfect location! This is our fourth yearly visit and we call AMI our home away from home. Thanks for opening your home to us as we truly love it. We especially enjoyed the Sandbar this year. It’s been awesome watching the sunsets while at the Sandbar. Our children and granddaughter joined us for a couple of days. They also fell in love with AMI and your home.
Guest Book entry by the Crozier family of St. Augustine, Florida, for their stay in 8/2013
Coastal Cottages AMI staff is the best! The rental was truly more than we could have hoped for with central access to the Bay, Coast and lazy shopping. The North Shore is the only place we ever wish to return. The BON AMI home was just that, we needed for nothing during our stay. The freedom to kick our feet up, fish, swim, explore is all right there. This is what I remember of my childhood growing up on the island and this home and the great staff of AMI allowed me to give my own children that experience. We will continue to come back each year, until we can make it last all year. Confessions of the heart, I hesitated to write this review because the home and the island make you want to keep its location and lifestyle a secret from others. However knowing the nature of those who would choose the island could not be far from our own, we decided to share.

My family stayed in BON AMI and we want to compliment Coastal Cottages’ service and the owner—the amenities are superb! We would recommend this property thru Coastal Cottages for those interested in a first-rate home. From the kitchen utensils to the wood cabinets in the washer/dryer closet, we were impressed with the condition this house is maintained in.
