“Relaxing Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2009

Although we did not expect to stay overnight at Anna Maria Island we wanted to check out The Harrington House. It was very peaceful and were surprised at the extra amenities: kayaks, bicycles, etc. included in the price. Unfortuntaly we were only able to stay one night and could not fully enjoy our stay.

We had a wonderful time at Harrington House. It is absolute perfection from the moment you arrive until you must sadly leave. We would have stayed much longer if we could!

Beautiful place, great setting, right on the beach. Clean and pretty rooms. Super comfortable bed. Watched the sunset from our balcony. The food was also amazing.

We spent 3 nights here after working in Fort Myers. It had been a busy few days and we were able to relax as soon as we walked into Harrington House. The staff were charming, the location perfect for early morning walks along the beach to work up an appetite for the lovely breakfasts. Lots of attention to detail from our name on the bedroom door, to relaxing music playing on a CD in the room when we arrived, and beach equipment to borrow for a day in the sun.

This is a fabulous spot on the West Coast of Florida, right on the Gulf of Mexico. The beach is beautiful, and is just steps away from the pool area, and the rooms. Sunsets are spectacular. The staff is very friendly, and helpful, and is well-acquainted with area restaurants. Beach Bistro, an excellent restaurant, is just a few blocks away. We plan to return soon.

We stayed here for two nights. This was our second stay with the Harrington House (last time we stayed at one of the Bungalows). The house is located about two blocks away from the main house. It has a carport (which is great for the hot Florida sun). When you walk through the main door you are in the dining room and that shoots into the living room and then the kitchen to the left with a two chair table. Kitchen is fully equipped with every thing you will need to cook with (Publix grocery store is not too far away). We booked it for the private pool. It is a cute little pool to play around in. It has an outside deck with a table and chairs. The only problem is that we were being bitten by sand fleas (off did not work). We did tell the Harrington House and they apologized and said that the bug people would not be out until Monday, so we did not hang out on the deck area. We would have to run to the pool and hope they one did not hitch a ride with us.
The bedrooms were cute, one with a queen and the other with two twins (get for teenagers or younger kids). Each bedroom had a TV, so there were a total of three in the house. Did not care for the furniture while watching TV, was very uncomfortable to watch a movie. The bathroom is showing its age, the wallpaper was falling down a little.
The breakfast was yummy as usual and the staff is very friendly. We had our own beach chairs and umbrella for the beach. Love the beach, only us and two other couples (on the area of the Harrington House) and a beautiful sunset.
The Harrington House is very romantic, but families are allowed there too. Next time I think we will book in the main house or one of the rooms on the beach.
I would recommend this house to anyone that does not mind not being right on the beach and wants the private pool.

Harrington House is exactly as the description reads. The property is well supervised and maintained. Breakfast is served each morning with choices for several hours. Drinks and snacks are available throughout the day. Each room or suite is unique, so ask questions about thae actual size before booking. The white, powdery sand and beautiful ocean are just steps from the pool area. I don't think anyone could go wrong with staying at the Harrington House. We can't wait to return again.
