Yup, we'll be back! This house was perfect for our party of 8 (4 couples). All of the living area/bedrooms/laundry room were located on the main (upper) floor. The living room, kitchen, and dining room were open and great for group meals and hanging out together! The King bedrooms were perfect for each couple with each having it's own attached ensuite. The decor was current and lovely. The house was clean and well cared for...and the outdoor space....AMAZING! Such a fun outdoor area under the house blending into the back yard/pool area. The pool is heated, the spa gets hot, the sectional seating area has a fire pit table, and the dining/bar area has a TV for watching football games. There's also a hammock, foosball table, and ping pong table. What else could you ask for?? The house was well equipped with everything we needed, including plenty of beach chairs, beach buggies for hauling beach gear, coolers, beach towels, umbrellas and tents, and even fishing gear for fishing in the canal behind the house! When I reached out to the rental company for help with the Spa, they responded quickly and the information was helpful! We enjoyed sitting on the back porch in the mornings drinking coffee and watching the fish splash in the canal. We LOVED this house and had an amazing visit to AMI!

Absolutely amazing! Our first visit to AMI! This home featured ample space for 4 couples to have private bedrooms/bathrooms plus areas to dine/cook/entertain in different areas of the home. We enjoyed the outdoor area, pool/hot tub and fishing! Beautifully appointed with all the amenities! Excellent location! We will be back!! Thanks!

Lovely, comfortable, private home that is fully stocked from the kitchen to the outside amenities (especially liked playing Corn Hole in the evenings). We enjoyed the opportunity to boat and kayak from the dock, and our main mode of transportation was golf cart. The beach at Bean Point is expansive and beautiful and is about a 10 minute walk from the home or quick golf cart ride. Visiting Egmont Key was a favorite plus enjoyed seeing the dolphins on the way there! We encourage all to take in a gorgeous sunrise from the pier area and a sunset from the beach. If anything, there is so much to do here, there is simply not enough time in a week span to leisurely do it all! We were also thrilled to see a manatee from the dock!

This beautiful home has everything you could ever need. It is gorgeous and looks like it should be in a magazine. The four bedrooms are huge and my teenagers appreciated having their own space as well as bathroom. The beds are comfy and there are tons of extra blankets. There are plenty of regular towels, pool towels and beach towels. The location is perfect and we were able to walk to the pier, Bean Point or Pine Avenue for an ice cream break. The garage is fully stocked with everything you need for beach as well as fishing gear. My daughter even caught a 26" fish off the dock in back of the house! We can't wait to book our next trip to Anna Maria Island!!

This will be the house we book again! It greatly exceeded our expectations and the pictures do not do it justice. It was sparkling clean, much larger than expected and our welcome gift was so unexpected. The added bonus was the abundance of blankets, beach towels and toiletries. It was like being at home but of course so much better. The location is amazing and so relaxing. You are a short stroll to the beach and downtown, yet tucked away in your own private oasis. Anytime we had a minor question, Nikki responded back immediately. It was as if we had our own private concierge. I do not have a single thing I would change about this home and this house will be the reason we return to AMI as we often visit different location in FL to escape the cold of Ohio. I LOVE this house and we plan to return ASAP. Thanks for all!

Working with Nikki and Michael was excellent. The house is beyond beautiful, everything you could possibly think of has been provided. This is a MUST Go place, rent a golf cart and boat and live the best life. Owners are beyond accommodating , outside living space is perfect. We did Thanksgiving outside with family and it was PERFECT. Thank you for such a great experience, and my family and I cannot wait to go back!

This home was absolutely superb!! It had everything we could have wanted and more. My children loved the foosball table, the ping pong table, and the ring toss, as well as the Xbox. The adults enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and the outdoor bar area. The house itself was immaculate and very comfortable. There was plenty of room for my family of four, as well as my parents. We will defiantly be renting Batemans again!!
