“Amazing Villa in a beautiful part of Florida”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

This was our first visit to Anna Maria Island and we were not disappointed! After a week in Orlando we were ready for some rest and relaxation and we quickly realised we had come to the right place. The villa is beautiful, the photos do not do it justice! The owners are very friendly and attentive, they have thought of all the details to make your holiday perfect! The villa is well equipped and the pool and spa are perfect for relaxing after a day out or a morning at the beach (which is an easy 5-10 minute walk). We felt that this was a very safe place for children (we have a 5 and 8 year old) and the very handy beach carts made it easy for us to take stuff to and from the beach. The only problem was that a week wasn't long enough - none of us wanted to leave!

“A VERY SPECIAL HOME FOR OUR VERY SPECIAL TRIP”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

people found this review helpful

We were on a special trip to the USA for my 50th birthday and we want to say a big big ‘Thank you’ to Mike & Lesley for making our holiday one we will never forget. Their Communication was spot on from when we booked until our departure – and afterwards!.

The house was stunning; the pictures on the website are good but do not do it justice. The pool and hot tub are fantastic and so good for relaxing after a ‘hard day at the beach’!!

Everything we needed was there and everything was absolutely spotlessly clean. The beds were massive and extremely comfortable. Good quality bed linens and so many towels are provided which means there’s no need to fill your case with them.The house was also perfect to cook and dine in, whether inside, on the balcony, or down on the lanai by the pool. The kitchen is so well equipped and there’s a great gas BBQ if you want to grill yourselves a steak or burger.

The beautiful beach is only a few minutes’ flat walk from the house via a quiet neighbourhood. No busy roads to cross so an easy and safe walk for both young kids and older people. Everything you need for the beach is right there, Including a trolley to carry it all. A real plus was having the 2 bikes to explore Anna Maria Island, which is stunning and had all the facilities we needed; Publix supermarket just a few minutes’ drive and some fantastic restaurants, especially Star Fish Company and the Waterfront Restaurant.

We can’t recommend Mike & Lesley and ‘A Pearl of a Beach Home’ highly enough. We chose it based on the photos and past reviews and loved it so much we didn’t want to leave at the end of our stay.

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 week holiday on the beautiful Anna Maria Island. Mike and Lesley's home really does have the "wow factor" The moment we walked through the door, we were blown away by how nice their house was. We all love cooking and were impressed at how well the kitchen was stocked, it really has everything you can think of. In fact the whole house is equipped to a very high standard. We especially loved playing in the pool during the day and sitting in the hot tub with a cocktail at night. The table tennis table was put to good use, as was the tennis court across the road. The stunning beach is a short walk or even shorter bike ride away, plenty of chairs and beach equipment are provided along with a cart to transport it.
Mike and Lesley were a delight to deal with, answering emails and any questions in a timely manner.
I would highly recommend a Pearl of a Beach Home and I have no doubt that we will return there one day.

Every since we booked this vacation rental we knew it would be great because of the interaction with the owners. They were on top of everything and went out of their to help us. Honestly the best people I have ever delt with when renting for vacations.

The house was AMAZING, very very clean. It had everything you would need including high chair and pack n play for our son. The pool and spa were even better than they looked in the picture. We spent much of our time there. Great location to the beach and had everything you would need for the beach.

This house was perfect for our family and we will be back. Love the island too.

Thank you for taking the time out to post a review of your stay at our vacation home. Not sure where you find the time with a 1 year old!
It's our pleasure to make the pack n play & high chair available to you for your son and can do so on request at no cost to our future guests.

We pride ourselves on making 'A Pearl...' a real gem, spotlessly clean, comfortable and homely and love to share it with great families like yours when we can't be on Anna Maria ourselves. We look forward to your return visit. Thank you. Mike & Lesley

“Perfect Vacation!”

My husband, parents and two boys decided to vacation in Florida this summer. We have always vacationed at hotels or all inclusive resorts. For this vacation we wanted to find a home where we could all stay together and have a relaxing, low key vacation. That said, we were aprehensive about booking this home, having heard both the good and the bad stories. I can absolutely assure you, this was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The owners were responsive with any questions we had prior to the trip, we were provided with exact instructions regarding the property and when we arrived, they responded to our questions via email promptly. The home was perfect also. It was immaculately clean upon arrival, and everything was just as the owners described, nothing was missing or lacking. The pictures do not do the property justice. The layout of the home is great for families, as there is one bedroom off of the main living area and two more on the second floor. There was nothing that was lacking as far as amenities. There are even headphones for the TV in the main living area, which made our trip wonderful, as our son could watch his cartoons without disturbing the adults. The best part of the entire vacation was the pool. The pool looks just as beautiful in person as it does in the pictures, if not better. There is an alarm on the doors going out to the pool so you can be sure your small child is safe. Our children chose to spend much more time at the pool than the beach on our trip, which was just fine with the adults. I highly recommend this vacation rental. Our family is already looking forward to our next trip.

Thank you for taking the time out from your busy schedule to write a review of your vacation at 'A Pearl of a Beach Home' - it really is appreciated!

We recall that when you booked in July that you were apprehensive about booking and staying in a Rental for the first time - having only stayed in hotels before.

It was therefore great to receive your email just after you booked stating....... 'We have not rented a property this way before and were a little hesitant, but it has proven to be incredibly easy' ...- and to see that you refer to your...... 'wonderful experience from start to finish' .........in your review.

We understand the importance of family vacations and how your booking experience and your 'home away from home' should meet or even exceed your expectations and we always strive to deliver this for our guests.

We look forward to welcoming you back whenever you wish and thank you for taking such good care of our vacation home during your stay.

Mike and Lesley were very attentive for the entire rental process and our experience with them and the home could not have been better. The property is nicely furnished, very homey, and had everything we needed for our end of September early October Fall break stay. We loved the pool and hot tub! We used the wagon for our short walks to the beach and it worked out well. There was even a shade canopy that we could easily load and set up at the beach that came in handy during the 85 degree sunny days. The outdoor shower was also great for getting the sand off after our beach adventures. We cooked many meals in the well-equipped kitchen and found everything we needed. We rented bikes and had them easily delivered and picked up from the house. Our 9 and 11 year old loved having their own rooms! While there were only four of us, we could have brought a couple more family members comfortably. This rental is pretty, clean, and well cared for...we hope to return soon!

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and found that the location of our home and it's facilities made your stay so enjoyable. The pool and spa that we added August 2014 have proved to be a great success with our guests - who also appreciate that there are no additional costs for pool/spa heating.

We'd love to have you come stay again anytime and as with all returning guests, will be pleased to offer a special' returning guest rental rate'.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review - we are very grateful.
