We had lots of fun, thanks Jackie for everything. The house had everything we needed, well stocked kitchen, large fridge, ping pong table in garage, kayak for two, fishing gear (you can fish from the dock or paddle out and fish from kayak). The pool and patio area were great and we enjoyed it a lot. Location was what we were looking for, 5 min to nearby grocery shops, about 30 min for nice shopping. Ahh and let’s not forget the beaches. Anna Maria island beaches are 15-20 min away. We particularly liked to stay at Manatee beach, where we always found place to park plus beach cafe had good food and drinks. You really are close to all the beaches there so this was great as well. If you want to go to Clearwater, it’s an hour drive and going south, within an hour drive you also have other beautiful beaches (Siesta Key, Nakomis beach, Venice beach and more…). Great parasailing from Anna Maria island, and if you don’t want to go on the boat, you can watch your friends and family parasailing from pretty much any of the Anna Maria island beaches. Two weeks went by very fast but we had tons of fun. Jackie it was great to meet you, we love Florida Suncoast and cannot wait till we visit again.
