Wicked Awesome!!! December, 2015
First of all I have to say, Terry is just awesome to work with. The return calls, the follow up is second to none. I live in Florida and have stayed just about everywhere in the state. Anna Maria is wonderful! After every place I’ve been in the state, AMI is tops. Siesta key is a close second. The condo is perfect, everything you need to accommodate all your needs. The pool is great, beach is pristine. If you’re looking for the perfect vacation…make sure you look up Terry White. Without a doubt the most friendly, professional rental/owner I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! Thanks Terry for all you do. See you next year (Or maybe a lot sooner! : )
Beautiful Condo, November, 2015
Found this property online. We were visiting from the UK.
The condo is beautiful, clean and well maintained. U can see the sea from the balcony, beautiful sunsets. Well located for the beach, which was beautiful. Also close to Historic Bridge Street. Trolley bus “free” that travelled up and down the island very convenient, located minutes away from condo. Anna Maria is a beautiful island if u get the chance to visit u must. Various activities close by , kayaking, Segway, jet ski just to mention a few.
Terry the owner rang to check we had arrived and made sure we had what we needed. If we had any problems all we had to do was ring him. Our return flight was 19:40 as no other people booked in he said we cud stay later till we were ready to go, which was very helpful for us. If we go back to the island we wud definitely go back.
We really enjoyed our stay at your Anna Marie Island condo unit #110. . We were impressed with the spacousness, tasteful furniture and decor, the wall hangings were especially nice, and the whole place was bright and new. There were way more accessories than we needed or used, but we noticed that all were of high quality and very nice….even the beach chairs!. We especially liked the location on a quiet side street with easy access across to our “almost private” beach , and we spent several days there. We became regulars at the Kokonut Beach bar and liked the fact that we could easily walk there and back after a few pops. We also tried out SandBar, Harbor House, Skinney’s, 2 or 3 at Bridge Street, and several others…I think the only one we missed was Rod & Reel..We also enjoyed the heated pool, and swam and visited with several other snowbirds and permanent residents. You folks have a very nice place there and Thank You for making it nice for us. The only suggestions we would make would be a few throw rugs inside the door and balcony entrances to help trap sand before it gets in….and maybe a small table for drinks and snacks on the balcony. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and having wine and cheese . We don’t have any plans to return to Florida within the next year, but will certainly keep you in mind for next time. JOHN & CLARE
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS, August, 2015
This condo was all that was advertised and more. You needed nothing else except clothes, food, and suntan lotion. It was exceptionally clean and the kitchen was equipped with all the necessities. Terry and family (owners) provided beach chairs and beach toys for your stay. An added bonus was a stackable washer/dryer which came in very handy when returning from the pool. Restaurants, shopping, and recreational activities were all within walking distance or only a short drive or free trolley ride away. Terry personally informed us of the better eating establishments and shopping areas, and he was extremely easy to contact and got back to us within minutes. So if it’s a relaxing hassle free vacation you seek, this is the condo for you.
I wanted to tell you thank you for giving us the pleasure of staying here! We have had the best time of our lives! The condo has been perfect! This island is heavenly and I KNOW I’ll be back again! It has meant SO much to me and my boys to spend the week here. So thank you. We have truly been blessed!
“Small piece of paradise” September, 2013
Beaches are beautiful! Condo was PERFECT! And the island is a small piece of paradise. But, most importantly, working with Terry and his family in confirming / renting this condo was one of the easiest transactions I have ever made. Long story short, personal check for final payment was lost in the mail. UGH! That’s our postal service for ya!! After a few emails back and forth, all was good and we were on our way to the Beach! Thanks Terry! What a great week! We will definitely be back next year! BTW, Tiki Hut across the street has the best sunsets in the Country!
Pritchard and Nikki Hollowell (Jefferson, Ga)
This is a very nice, clean facility with all the comforts of home. The beach is gorgeous. We enjoyed our stay here…this was our 3rd visit and will be going back again!

What a WONDERFUL condo!!!! May, 2013
This was our first time in AMI and we LOVED IT!! The condo was just as pictured except much bigger I feel in person! Terry was very helpful and the condo had everything you would need for a GREAT FUN vacation! Beach chairs, sand toys, beach towels, the only thing they didn’t have was a raft, so I bought one and left it for the next guest! 🙂 I was very nervous about renting online, I had never done this before seeing it and let me put your mind at ease, THIS ONE IS AWESOME!!!! THANKS again Terry for letting us stay at your BEAUTIFUL condo ! we cant wait to came back next May!!! 🙂 IN LOVE with AMI!
Thank you,Patricia & David
Dear Terry & Sandy,
We had an absolute pleasure of joining our parents at your condo for a week. You have a treasure on Anna Maria Island. Booking online we were skeptical until my parents arrived and opened the door. Yes the address really did exist, and my mom said it was like slipping into a world of paradise! She grew up on the Atlantic Coast and draws great comfort from the salt water. My parents truly enjoyed their time there. They were like two kids when we arrived – walking and swimming every day. They were totally relaxed.
The island itself reminds me of Cape Briton, in the summer. You cross onto the island and your pace slows to a crawl. Personally, I loved the beach. The salt water and sound of the waves were just what I needed. It was a wind down for all of us.
Everything we need was within a short walk or drive. We met some wonderful people in the local area and agh the complex itself. Several of us went para-sailing, even my Dad. What a thrill!!! We shopped – even that was at a much slower pace. Wearing sandals and summer to Christmas Eve Mass and swimming in the Gulf on Christmas Day were adjustments…. very pleasant ones. The view from the balcony, the cleanliness and the brightness of your condo were second to none. Convenient parking, phone access, well stocked kitchen appliances, friendly neighbours and your attention to having the dryer repaired were great.
My brother and sister and their families spent time visiting Mom & Dad. While we were all there at different times we all came away with the same feelings. Our ages ranged from 9-77 years and we all truly enjoyed our time on Anna Maria Island. A short time after leaving your condo we al met together to celebrating my parents 50 years in business and where did the conversation lead? To Anna Maria Island of course. The view from your balcony is the background photo on my BlackBerry. We have shared our experience with many and would highly recommend your condo to anyone. Thank you again and we hope to return again soon.
Yours truly, Maureen on behalf of the McNeill/McCulloch families.
I just want to pass on a message from my parents. After driving from Nova Scotia they arrived at the condo yesterday, and in my mom’s words, the pictures didn’t do it justice. It is so bright, airy and very clean. The ocean is as close as in the description. Thank you!! Thanks, Maureen
Perfect place to Honeymoon! Nov. 2011
By (St. John’s NL Canada)
We stayed at this condo for 10 perfect days. The condo was great, clean with great appliances, comfortable king sized master suite etc. One minute to an amazing beach! The condo pool was perfect in the evenings. The free Trolly is right outside to take you to a great grocery store next to any “spirits” you need. Lots of resturants. The sunsets over the gulf is almost indescribable it’s so wondereful. ZERO complaints, it’s heaven…..go for it!
Just wanted to thank you for the condo. It was absolutely beautiful. We had a wonderful time ( even though a cold front and wind) there. Anna Maria is all that they say it is and even more. We have been to a lot of places in Florida and the Carribean, and this by far is the most beautiful. Carribean is nice, especially beaches, but this island says it all. Perfect time of year to go also with no crowds being it was our first time there. Your condo is wonderful. Everything you need and more. Although we spent most of the time at the beach or pool in the day, it was the absolute best. Loved the keyless entry and not having to worry about keys! Wish it was available in Jan thru Feb. I think we will be going down next year at the same time. How soon ahead do we need to book it.? Again, thanks for all your help and for finding us information on shopping and transportation. We found everything so helpful and the people on the island could have not been any nicer. The location is perfect also!
Just recently returned from a week on the anna Maria Island for our first time. We could not have made a better choice in finding this condo. It was everything you could want, beautifully decorated and fit for every need. Especially loved the keyless entry, which you don’t need to worry about loosing keys, or if someone wants to go back early from the beach of having to worry about getting in. The location of this is wonderful and the pool was always kept at a warm temperature and clean! Highly recommend staying here and look forward to returning to this condo.
Hi Terry & Sandy:
Got back yesterday. Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your beautiful condo. The location was perfect – the view, close to Cortez Rd (restaurants), and, as you assured us, the close proximity to the beach. We love 85F water! The keyless lock was a huge plus. I had been worrying about how to handle the keys to always have one when we went out to dinner and losing a key on the beach.
Bill & Irene Hubbell
Dear Terry & Sandy,
We had a memorable honeymoon at Anna Maria Island. The location of the condo was truly as great as you had described. The condo itself was immaculate. The island was beautiful and the people were lovely. I am so happy we were referred to you by Carol. I could not have imagined a more perfect vacation. I just wanted to thank you for all your time.
The rental process was hassle free and a real pleasant experience. We have already begun to make plans to visit Anna Maria Island again. As soon as we materialize those plans, you be be hearing from us. We could not imagine staying anywhere else, since after exploring the island we realized you do have the best location. Thank you,
Walter and Ashley Subers
We found a new favorite vacation spot! July 2011
This was our first trip to anna Maria Island but it definitely will not be the last. We loved the location and the accommodations were wonderful. We loved the gentleness of the waves especially since we were traveling with small children. We could go out onto the sandbar and the water was only ankle deep and the kids could play. The beaches were not crowded at all. Can’t wait for our next visit.
April, Marion IL
Love it! April 2011
We have rented the condo two years in a row and plan to go back again. My family always vacationed in the area when we were growing up and we love going back. The condo is wonderful, the pool is great, the beach is close, and Terry was wonderful to work with. Now as an adult, I’m enjoying the island as much as I did when I was a kid going there. I also hope my kids love it as much as I do!

Beautiful, well kept condo near everything! February 2011
This is probably one of the nicest condos in the complex. We were back from the road so we had no street noise. We had a lovely view of the ocean from our balcony and were just steps from the beach. We loved being able to walk to many great restaurants and were so happy to be there for the opening of the Tiki Hut at the Gulf Drive Cafe. Our best time in Florida yet!!

“Liveable Beauty”, December 2010
We rented this condo without difficulty and with courtesy, receiving the keys promptly with directions to the site on anna Maria. The condo is beautifully decorated, but is very liveable for our family of five, which included a teen ager, an ll-year-old, parents and a grandmother. All of the appliances worked without probllems, including two large screen TVs. The furnishings were suitable for a seaside accommodation — leather couches, tile floors, etc.. The view down to the Gulf was always interesting. We liked the fact that the condo was always comfortable, heated, cooled, well-lighted and with ample linen, dishes, etc. The second story location was a bit of a hike for “grandma”, but it did mean a good view. Unfortunately, we liked the weather least! But there’s nothing that can be done about that! We enjoyed looking around anna Maria and found the lists of “Things to Do” included in a kitchen drawer very helpful.

“Perfect location”, November 2010
Great condo located w/i walking distance of pretty much everything. Only used 1/2 a tank of gas the whole week we were there. The condo was clean and the pool was great. Not many people either which was really nice as well. This was our first trip to anna Maria Island and we would definitely return and stay at the same condo. All in all we would highly recommend this condo.
Kathy, Manchester, MI
“Terrific time!” May 2010
My husband and I invited his son, daughter in law, and 2 grandchildren (ages 3 and 5) to join us. The condo was spacious-lots of room for 2 lively children to play. It was clean, beautifully furnished, and close to restaurants. The beach was a short walk from our condo. We had a wonderful week of family fun and great weather as well.
Lucky Lodger, Pittsburgh, PA
“Superb condo, excellent location”, July 2010
This was our second visit to Bradenton Beach. I would put the rating for this condo off the scale. Excellent location just a few minutes walk from the beach which was never crowded. Just off the main road and far enough back to keep the traffic noise to a minimum. The whole area was very quiet and relaxing The condo is superbly furnished with all the extras you would wish for and very comfortable. All the beach accessories you need are provided. The condo overlooks a lovely sized pool that was never crowded. Just everything about this place and the area was just perfect. The owners have made every effort to make this place a five star residence. We will definitely return to enjoy another relaxing and very comfortable holiday.

“Great condo and nice area” April 2010
This was a truly enjoyable place to relax, with the pool right outside the door and the beach within easy walking distance. Good restaurants close by.

“One of the best vacations ever!” April 2010
Loved the island and the accomondations. Owners were very helpful in providing us information on restaurants, shopping, and tours. I would definitely come back, as would my whole family!

“Idyllic place in the sun”, October 2009
Where to begin…. everything about the condo was so good its going to be difficult to make sure I cover it all. I will start with the booking of the condo which was so easy, the owners responded quickly to all of our queries, advising on availability dates and costs without delay. I felt confident that the keys would arrive just as we agreed (always a bit of a worry when you pay a sum of money to a ‘stranger’) but all went exactly as the owners had said it would. On arrival at the condo the place was spotlessly clean, we were extremely pleased with the decor and it had everything you could possibly need. I had looked at the photos of the condo before arrival but they really dont do it justice. They had thought of everything to make us all feel completely at home with all the conveniences of home – no compromises on style or facilities. It was just as it had been described to us. When we stayed it was very quiet in the complex although we did have people in the condo next to ours there was no noise and we were never disturbed. The pool was just as they said – lovely and warm. The condo is conveniently located close to the beach and you can sit on the balcony watching the sunset. There was a supermarket about 1.5 miles away and lots of restaurants within walking distance. We spent a lot of time down historic Bridge Street and traveling on the free trolley bus taking in the breath-taking views. Overall a really great holiday made special with such fuss-free process I would certainly recommend it to all of my family and friends.
“Great Escape!”, Mar 28, 2009
Marian Wyklige (Traverse City, Michigan)
“It has snowed since October in Northern Michigan and there are still 15 inches of the white stuff in my back yard on April 9th! This AMI condo was such a haven for the winter-weary! Location cannot be beat. We walked the beach every morning and evening, and enjoyed the clean, warm pool during the day. The condo is totally equipped with everything necessary for home away from home. Restaurants and shops by the historic pier are only three blocks away; the free island trolley is a fun ride for further distances. This is a great condo to rent, but as the natives say, “Don’t tell all your friends about AMI.” They want to keep this gem a secret!”
Coffee and Dolphins, January 18, 2009
By Mark & Terri Godfrey (Montreal, Quebec)
The condo was everything we hoped it would be. Really enjoyed the morning sun rises and having our coffee watching the dolphins swim by. To say everyone enjoyed their time would be a bit of an understatement. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to enjoy a real piece of “the good life”.
Great Times !!!, December 3, 2008
By Chris Bitzel (Hampstead, Maryland)
Our family of 5 had a wonderful time here. With 2 full baths, a huge kithen, and all kind of living space, how could we not??? Location was excellant, pool was warm, sunsets were magnificent, ……what more can you ask for? All in all, this place is perfect.

Girls Weekend, November 26, 2008
By Kelley (Tampa, Florida)
Great location – we didn’t use our car once. Everything we needed was in walking distance. Also great condo for a group – second bedroom sleeps 3 in separate beds comfortably. Very spacious. Full kitchen. Beach gear included.
Heaven on Earth, August 10, 2008
By Bill Knarr (Frankfort, Kentucky)
I have rented this unit for 3 years in a row. It is wonderful, clean, great location and relaxing. It is close to anything you need, near the trolley stop and best of all walk out your door and in 2 minutes you are on the sandy white beach looking at the beautiful blue water. You will not find a better value for your dollar than this condo. Anna Maria Island is the place to relax and forget about the fast paced world which lies beyond the bay.
Dolphins swim by, August 7, 2008
By Tom Swarbrick (Westlothian Scotland)
My wife and I had a great holiday. The accommodation was clean, very spacious, well furnished,and a great location. It was within easy walking distance of several restaurants/bars. No need to take the car. We watched dolphins swim by as we had breakfast.
A Piece Of Paradise…….., June 16, 2008
By Ginny M (Brandon, Florida)
A great family vacation. The condo was in a great location with a beautiful white sand beach. Unit was spacious and clean. My daughters enjoyed having access to the beach toys provided. I will definetely rent this unit again in the future.
Everything we expected…., April 8, 2008
By Marta Palmer (Dewitt, MI USA)
The condo was very nice with a nice view of the ocean and pool. It had all the amenities. We really appreciated having a hi-speed wireless connection. The pool was the perfect temperature and was very clean. We wouldn’t hesitate to return and rent this property again.
