“Family friendly and fun place”

My family and I had a great stay at crescent wave. The pool and hot tub were popular. The island is so easy to get around the home wasn't far from anything.

“Outstanding rental”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We really enjoyed our stay! Location was excellent – just three blocks from the beach, the pool was great, and when we needed a cooler from the landlord – he got it they're very very promptly.

Without question we would recommend this place

“A little piece of paradise!”
Reviewed 6 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We spent a wonderful two weeks in this little oasis by the sea. Just blocks from the wonderful beach and little shops, restaurants, and great coffee, it was the perfect venue for a wonderful family vacation. The home was spacious, clean and very well equipped. The hot tub in the pool was a big hit as well. We would not hesitate to recommend this home!

“Perfect Location - would definitely come back”
Reviewed 15 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Our stay at Crescent Wave was perfect. The house is great, lots of room for all of us and the pool area was ideal. We didn't get great weather while we were there, but we can't blame Rick for this! The pool was sheltered and although walking on the beach required a few extra layers, we could happily lie by the pool and be warm and comfortable while topping up our Vitamin D levels!
We didn't go through the agency, so the only reason we would drop one star is that there were a few essentials missing when we arrived. There was no washing up liquid or dishwasher tablets and also no salt and pepper or other condiments, usually places we have stayed have had the basics but there was nothing here. There was no washing powder for the washing machine either which was a pity but not the end of the world. Rick was great, answering all our questions immediately and even popping around to make sure we were ok when we had questions on the pool. A perfect gentleman.
All in all, Anna Maria Island was perfect. The house is in a fantastic location within easy walking distance of both Gulf Drive and Pine Ave where everything you need is situated. The Mermaid's food is fab and their desserts are to die for, the Waterfront is lovely too and the small italian take-away on Pine Street has amazing pasta and J Burns pizza was also delicious. Breakfast at Ginny's and Jane E's is an experience - their cinnamon rolls are the size of a dinner plate! I would highly recommend the Island and would also recommend you explore it from the comfort of Crescent Wave!

“Everything we hoped it would be (for a creative retreat)”
Reviewed 6 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We loved this rental. Rick, the owner, was insanely responsive -- emailing back within minutes the few times we emailed.

A good friend and I came here for a creative retreat: to finish up books we're working on. It was everything we hoped and more. Rick's has clear instructions inside the home that removes nay guess work -- so you can get straight into the enjoyment of Anna Maria Island.

The place was VERY clean, which we appreciated. Well stocked with towels and beach chairs, etc. No surprises, which is exactly what you want on a vacation rental.

This home is perfectly situated on the north end of the island, near Pine, where you can enjoy meals and boutiques. Even better it's only a 2 to 3 block walk to the beach . . . or you can go east and enjoy the channel between the mainland.

If you want to park your car and enjoy easy walks to all the best locations, this is your place.
