Wonderful canal home – even better than expected! My husband & I were joined by our daughter, son-in-law & granddaughter for a five night vacation at Anna Maria Island. We all agreed that we were very lucky to have chosen this rental home. The home was very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The updated kitchen was a plus and extremely well equipped with everything you would need. The backyard & pool were like your own little paradise. The location was absolutely perfect, you could walk to the beach, restaurants & shops. We loved the Sandbar restaurant, which is within walking distance and waterfront. Also, The City Pier Restaurant has great food and is on the water. We loved that this home is on a canal. My son-in-law brought his boat and it was absolutely wonderful to step off the private dock and on to the boat and explore the area, go snorkeling, etc. The rental staff were awesome, you couldn’t ask for a more professional, friendly & helpful group. This was our first trip to AMI & we cannot wait to go back and would especially love to return to this canal home!

Nice rental, clean, well maintained, good location, but a few items that need to be taken care of. 1) The furnished outdoor grill was so rusted that it proved to be unusable, adding insult to injury was the fact there was a new (owners) grill in the garage (off limits, more later) 2) With an attached dock you would assume that fishermen rent here frequently, however the dead fish smell when you opened the refrigerator was overpowering. 3) the property is listed as having parking for 3 cars (parking strictly enforced in Anna Maria), but the owners has posted signs advising tenants that the garage is off limits. So you are limited to 2 cars. 4) The pool is wasted due to the fact the “skimmer hose” must remain plugged in at all times. So anytime you are in the pool with 30′ of hose and an underwater skimmer. Knowing what I know now I would look for another rental unless these problems are corrected.

We had a wonderful time on AMI. The house was perfect . . . even better than the pictures indicated. Enjoyed the pool and backyard a lot. The furniture and mattresses were quite comfortable too. We have stayed in several vacation rental properties and this one was the most well appointed yet!

Your beautiful home was enjoyed by our family of five! Our kids (15, 12 and 3) loved the pool at the end of each day! We enjoyed all the local restaurants and activities while we were here. The sunsets were spectacular and the thrill of finding a sand dollar was so much fun! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. A vacation we will always treasure! Many blessings from our “Paradise” to yours!

This home exceeded our expectations! The pool is wonderful! The house spacious and open for great family time. Anna Maria Island was beautiful! Would recommend this home to anyone! The propane went out on the grill they came immediately and filled it up! Walk across the street to a beach! We loved the location!

My husband and I took a friend here for the weekend. It was very tropical around the pool. The house was clean and I loved the rain shower in my bedroom. Huge house with very comfy beds. The sundeck was a great place to get a tan. When it cooled in the evening and we got out of the pool the hot tub felt wonderful. It really makes you feel like you are on a tropical vacation far from home. A very nice tropical breeze blows through the pool area all the time which is so nice. The request on clean up when you leave has never been so easy. It feels pretty private because of all the tropical trees and plants around the pool area. The canal is nice as you can see and hear the fish jumping out of the water. We spent most of our time outside by the pool which has plenty of nice seating. Hope you enjoy.

We were lucky to find Island Oasis. The wife and I have visited Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island several times. This was the best stay yet. We caught snook across the bay in Perico Bayou and grouper at Longboat Pass. The backyard pool is the nicest and being able to hop in the boat and to the beach is just wonderful.

We had a wonderful time at the Island Oasis!!! So sad to leave today and go back to the cold, snowy Indiana weather. We had a great week. We rented a boat and had it parked at the house all week! It was wonderful! We saw sea turtles, stingrays, and starfish! So sad to leave :-(

How fast our week flew by! The well equipped kitchen was a pleasant surprise. The pool was enjoyed by all. Dinner on our last night at the Sandbar included a beautiful sunset. This was a great house to spend a Christmas away with our family!
