The perfect place. Really not much more I can say
that hasn't been said in all the other reviews.
Already planning to see when we can come back.
The owner is very, very pleasant and accommodating.
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!

“The best vacation homel we have had the privelege to rent”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The pictures of the condo on site were beautiful so I expected it to be great, but it was better than I dreamed it would be. It was like walking into a magazine but it was also very organized and you could tell the owner loves her vacation home. Even the storage room had everything you would need to spend time on the beach and the condition of the beach furniture was excellent. My husband loves to fish and enjoyed having the use of the poles and fishing gear that went along with it. The food on the island was great and the owner gave us her list of favorite restaurants and things to do. We had one day of rain and I loved it. We were happy just being in the condo. I would definitely go back and highly recommend Marilyn's home to all my friends and family.

So happy that you had a wonderful experience and appreciated how much we care. Because I live there myself for part of each year, the condo is constantly being updated. We would love to have you return.

“A simply beautiful place to relax, renourish, and restore your life and your soul.”

This gorgeous condo is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico, the soft white sand of the beach, and the laid back life style of Anna Maria Island. The condo is not your normal vacation condo. It is exceptionally decorated. Amenities are plentiful. There are ceiling fans in every room..even on the screened-in lanai, where you can read, relax, and enjoy every sunset. The bathrooms are great....one with a full size bathtub and one with an extra wide shower. There are even steps leading from the beach so that you don't have to go to the front of the condo to return home. It is a clean, comfortable, warm, and welcoming home away from home.

“Great Condo, Great Location”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We are locals and always plan a trip to Anna Maria for the summer. This is a great condo with a wonderful view and on north part of island so more quiet. Looking forward to staying again next year.

Thanks for your great review. Many guests love our sandbar, especially when the waves are big and our guests can body surf to shore. When you return next year you will find beautiful new ceiling fans in the bedrooms - and more surprise updates!

“Fabulous View of the Gulf of Mexico”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We really enjoyed this beautiful beachfront condo with a fabulous view of the Gulf of Mexico. It is extremely clean and attractive and very well equipped . Everything is provided, including beach toys, beach chairs and beach umbrellas. We spent most of our time sitting on the large lanai watching the surf, shorebirds, dolphins and the sunset.

“We found "Paradise" and the condo we want to live in!”
Reviewed 12 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We enjoyed and appreciated the beauty of Anna Maria Island!! We sunbathed, biked, swam, shopped, and ate way too much!! Marilyn was the perfect hostess, even though she was not there She emailed us recommendations of restaurants and things to do and also left an information packet in the condo. On our last night, we at at Marilyn's favorite restaurant, The Starfish Company, and the food was absolutely delicious. We wish we had eaten there earlier in the week, as we would have gone there more than once! We recommend trying that restaurant earlier on in your stay.

We enjoyed starting our day by sitting on the huge lanai on the comfortable patio furniture! We also were blessed with perfect weather every day!

Thank you, Marilyn, for sharing your home in "paradise"!! We will definitely be back!!
