Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Can not be happier with Valerie and 123 Hammock Rd. The pool is great and the house could not be any better, The location is the best.. dead end street and close to pine ave. Valerie checked up on us to see all was well, The beach cart and chairs were great.. all you need to go to the beach which was only 2 blocks away..we are going back next year

Quiet get away on AMI

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week in AMI. The home is located just north of Pine in a quite residential neighbourhood. We enjoyed lounging by the pool and relaxing in the screened porch. The home is well furnished and well equipped. We had some reservations about the pool - it looked a little small in the photos but in fact it's perfect and well positioned to receive hours of sunshine.

Valerie the home owner is a delightful woman and a pleasure to deal with. We generally stay in Holmes Beach but would welcome a return visit to Valerie's vacation home.

Great location !

  • 5 of 5

Walk anywhere you need to go. So close to Pine St and the gulf side of the island. A perfect home with a pool and all the stuff you need to enjoy your stay. My wife said the house was nicely appointed (whatever that means). Lots to do on Anna Maria and surrounding area.

A perfect spot on Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for six days just before Christmas with family of four, two teenagers. The house is immaculate, perfect walking distance to a few wonderful restaurants and the beach and the piers. Very quiet, very relaxing, pool was warm even at the end of December, everyone had a blast. Very easy to work with Valerie, and all of her helpfulness and friendliness much appreciated!

Just got to tell you all about this place! We stayed at Val's Place on Anna Maria Island for our second week of our holiday, and as soon as we arrived I was wishing we had spent both weeks there - the property is beautiful in and out, spotless, well furnished and equipped, beautifully decorated (my wife loved the bamboo theme Val, guess what my next decorating job is at home!) The pool is lovely, clean and warm, loads of beach stuff in the garage, only 12 deck chairs(!) but fortunately there was an inflateable alligator on hand! Beach is a few minutes' walk away and what a beach, beautiful sand, clean and clear water. Lots of bars, restaurants and shops around, free bus service (sorry, trolley service) and the whole area is beautiful and peaceful, including a 25mph speed limit, brilliant! Once you stay here, anything else is less! You won't be disappointed, Val, you did us proud!

Great stay at Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay as first time visitors of Anna Maria Island and in this nice house. As previous comments has stated, it is indeed a perfect location to be at, with a short walk to the beach as well as to Pine Avenue with shops and restaurants, and a short 10 min drive to Publix for proper grocery shopping.

The photos of the house doesn't do it fully justice to be honest, it's much better! Loved the open space with combined kitchen/living room/dining room with access to the nice Lanai All three bed rooms were nice and overall clean and well kept. And the place is equipped with everything you need, from Wi-Fi to TV and kitchen-ware. We cooked most food at home which worked well.

The pool and area around is great. Before coming we thought it could be a bit small, but it's definitely enough and the shallower level was great for the kids. With some cold January weather the pool was a bit cool in the beginning of our stay, but the solar heating worked as it should and following some days of sun temperature was fine.

Perfect with lots of toys both for the beach as well as the pool, and the wagon to bring everything (plus the kids) to the beach was really appreciated.

The only downside of our stay was that just next door they're building a new house, with workers busy and noisy most of the days from morning to 5 pm, but with Valerie giving us a rebate on the price due to that, we feel good about it anyhow.

Valerie was fantastic overall, we had some issues with the payment not working from our side with money transfer, but she was very helpful and patient and in the end everything worked out smoothly.

We can definitely recommend this place as well as Anna Maria Island as a whole, and would love to come back again
