This was our first visit to Anna Marie island. We rented a one bedroom villa and loved everything about it. The villa was fully equipped and the location right across the street from the beach was perfect. We enjoyed the fabulous plant life and fountains at this small cluster if private villas. There was a large laundry room that contained all sorts of fun beach stuff, noodles, boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs, bikes and a variety of essentials, sunscreen, bug spray, etc. the owners were terrific, warm and.
Friendly.
There was even a lovely circular piazza like area to relax, read, sit and enjoy a meal outdoors as well. Great place.

The villas are beautiful little jewels in a tropical setting, placed around a lovely courtyard with tropical plants, a bubbling fountain, and soft music. The courtyard is a great place to relax, read, enjoy a meal, and meet other guests, but each individual villa is very private, with its own separate little outside sitting area. My villa was beautifully decorated, and was supplied with every possible need, including a fully stocked kitchen, plenty of linens, and even beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, and little wagons in case you are taking lots of things to the beach – like beach toys (which are also provided!). The owners have given such loving care to every detail of the villas, and are very gracious (and readily available) hosts. This year was my first visit to Island Garden Villas, but it is a place I hope to visit many times again.

Room Tip: There are 6 villas, some are 1 bedroom, some are 2 bedroom, so your selection will depend on the num...

Just returned from a 2 weeks stay at this beautiful little corner of paradise. Our 3rd time there and hopefully not our last!! We stayed in the Bird of Paradise #103. Its kinda hard to describe just how peaceful this place is in a world full of chaos and craziness but Christy and Chuck have managed to create an absolute zen-like atmosphere within the wonderful courtyard. To sit and just listen to the fountain can bring such a peaceful feeling and there is Always something you hadn't noticed before, a plant, a plaque, a chicken!!!!!
You really want for nothing, there are beach carts and umbrellas and chairs and beach towels, magazines, even bug repellant - washer and drier and soft music to sit under the sun/stars and relax to and ooh yes the jacuzzi.
They have bikes (with really comfortable seats!!) which we used everyday to cycle around different parts of the island for hours at a time, stopping off either up at the City Pier or Two Scoops or Relish or J & J's or Peaches then spending afternoons on the wonderful white beach across the street. Or, if you are not bikers, then there is the fabulous free trolley that runs all the way down to Coquina beach and back to the City Pier and loads of other places too!! Loads of Fabulous restaurants and interesting stores on Pine Ave.
Before we left, Christy and Chuck put up the Christmas tree outside #103 and the Christmas wreath on the door, oh how pretty it looked.
Oh, and Blackie, how can I forget my dear little black cat. He is such a treasure, loves his treats, although not too many at a time!!!!!
Thanks again Chuck and Christy, you are amazing, I don't think you realise just what a jewel you have created for those of us lucky enough to have found you. Please keep it up, we look forward to our next hugs!!!!

We had a quick weekend trip and it was absolutely perfect. We said in the one bedroom villa and when our daughter decided to pop down for the day from Tallahassee to see us, there was plenty of room! The location is absolutely perfect, quick walk across the street to the beach, walking distance to great stores and restaurants, Anything further we wanted to do we could hop on the free trolley that runs everywhere.
The best part about Island Garden Villas besides the beautifully appointed rooms and location is just their attention to detail. The backroom is LOADED with beach toys, chairs, bicycles, games, magazines, really anything you could possibly want for a beach vacation. We've stayed other places on the island and have always had to supplement the beach gear, but not here. I cannot recommend Island Garden Villas enough. Very very accommodating and lovely.

Room Tip: I don't think I'd want to be in the room across from the hot tub, that felt a little intrusi...

Island Garden Villas was simply amazing! We checked in on a Sunday 6/30 and reluctantly checked out on 7/7. We were absolutely blown away how beautiful the Orchid Villa 102 was when we arrived.
We took full advantage of the amenities onsite such as the beach gear with a cart to pull to the beach each day that was a life saver. My wife and I rode bikes around Anna Maria Island (AMI) and it was wonderful! We utilized the washer and dryer (coin operated) to take care of our swim suits. The jacuzzi is located outside one of the two bedrooms next to 102 so it was easily accessible. We had breakfast and a few dinners in the beautifully kept courtyard and made friends with a couple who was down from Jacksonville with their two children.
Holmes Beach was spectacular and the island is a great walk or bike ride.
I highly recommend staying in the Orchid Villa 102 and we hope to do it again very soon!

Room Tip: Book the Orchid Villa 102.

We rented unit 104 June 19-23 and it was wonderful! Great location, beautiful villas, outstanding grounds, EVERYTHING you could think of was there like beach chairs, towels, washer, dryer, full kitchens, BBQ. Chuck and Christy are so friendly, they introduced themselves and were around if you needed anything. We can't wait to go back..... this is a must stay property!!!!!!!!!
