Please review and agree to our house rules prior to booking. Rental agreement must be signed to receive check-in instructions. We also require a credit card for a security deposit hold ($500-750) which will be released after check-out as long as our house rules were honored.

1. No parties, or loud music with profanity. Quiet time is from 10PM-7AM per city ordinance and must be followed. Our home is in a very quiet, safe residential neighborhood with older neighbors. We use noise monitoring technology to monitor noise inside and outside our property. Please keep noise at a reasonable level during the day. Parties that break policy or noise complaints from neighbors may be subject to forfeiture of entire security deposit and immediate cancellation of stay with no refunds. Guests will be alerted for excessive noise and we kindly ask for a prompt response.

2. We allow a limited number of visitors and all visitors must be approved. This property would not be a good fit for guests who plan to invite a lot of visitors. Unauthorized or extra guests on the property may lead to cancellation of the stay with no refunds and forfeiture of the security deposit.

3. No smoking, marijuana or any recreational drug use inside or immediately outside our property. Violation may lead to cancellation of stay with no refunds and $250 extra cleaning fee.

4. We do our best to maintain the quality of our property by taking care of it inside and out. While we ask our weekly maintenance crew to come before guests arrive, sometimes it is not possible due to their busy schedules. Occasionally, you might see our lawncare, pool, and pond maintenance crew on the property.

5. We ask our guests to assist in wheeling out trash bins to the curb for pick up on Mondays and Thursdays. This keeps our property clean and pests free. We will send out a gentle reminder via text on Sunday and Wednesday nights. Thank you in advance for your help!

6. Our pool is heated up to 88 degrees from November to May from 9AM to 9PM. In the morning, it may take a few hours for the pool to get warm due to the cold air at night. There is no extra charge for pool heat. If you would like the pool temperature adjusted, please reach out to me. To protect the heater from damage and excessive wear and tear, we do not allow pool temperature to exceed 95 degrees.

For guests considering bringing their pet:

Guestbook comments from the host:

This property will not disappoint ! It is truly a playground for kids as well as adults .
My family of 10 stayed here Thanksgiving week and loved it. It’s close to everything if you want to explore. Plenty of beaches nearby to enjoy .
We Simply settled in like it was our own house and found it a pleasure to be here for a week. Would definitely return !


Nov 2022

Stayed here while in FL for a family wedding. House was great, back yard is amazing. Host easy to communicate with. We had no problem with the neighbors. Keep in mind, the circle part of the pool is not a spa/hot tub. It is same temp as pool with no jets etc. The pool was heated all week which was awesome as weather was cooler due to Hurricane. The garage is loaded with pool toys and beach gear (cooler, wagon, chairs, etc). Definitely recommend this house for large family groups.


Nov 2022

We had an amazing time at this family fun location! My sons wedding was on Anna Maria Island. The home was 10 minutes from the wedding location. This home offered endless opportunities to make life long memories. The setup was better than the pictures. Carol was attentive to any questions or concerns. We can’t wait to come back again!!


Nov 2022

Best Location, everything is perfect!


Oct 2022

Mi estadía fue muy agradable, la casa es bonita y bien equipada, la dueña siempre disponible para responder cuáles inquietud . La recomiendo 100 %


Oct 2022

Comfortable home and kind host. Walking distance to a manatee hotspot, jet ski rental and swimming with horses. Short drive to AMI. I was worried that our 6 kids would be too loud for the neighbors but we didn't have any problems.


Oct 2022

This house was hands down the best vacation property I have stayed at. Not only do the pictures not do this house justice (the backyard is incredible), but this property is so well stocked and organized, it literally had everything we could think of needing. The host was great at communicating from start to finish and was really there for anything we needed. This house was worth every penny! The only small downside was the neighbors were hyper sensitive to all activities taking place and were clearly not happy with renters next store. But trust me, this house is a 10/10 and that would not stop me from staying here again!


Sep 2022

Better than we expected! Plenty of room for our 3 grown sons and families, grandparents and one aunt. Lots of places to congregate and relax, outdoor gazebo, screened in lanai, large kitchen where we mainly gathered. Pool bigger than we expected and we all spent lots of time in pool area.


Sep 2022

This home is perfect for family gatherings. It had all the necessary and extra amenities one would need in a trip to Florida. The host was sweet and very helpful/accommodating! They had pool toys, beach equipment and everything in between to make our family trip memorable! Caution, the water toy guns can lead to intense fun times! Thanks Carol for hosting us!


Aug 2022

This tropical hideaway is truly just that! Private, quiet and all the comforts of home inside and out! We played at the beach and spent quiet mornings and evenings in the backyard oasis. Carol was very helpful with recommendations to purchase good seafood for our cookouts on the grill. She was also incredibly helpful with preparations for fun things for our family to do during our stay. Will definitely return!


Aug 2022

Loved the property! Big enough for 3 families and the backyard is wo relaxing. Spent a couple days just hanging out in the pool! Location is great and just about a 15 minutes drive away from everything!


Jul 2022

We loved this house. There were 12 of us which included 4 kids under the age of 8. The bay was within walking distance and there were jet ski rentals and horseback riding there. The gulf beach was a car ride away, straight down the causeway from the house. The pool was wonderful after a long morning at the beach. Management was very accessible via email.
