Very relaxing and quiet surroundings... Easy walk to a beautiful beach. The lush foliage and beautiful flowers are a delight.
Island Garden Villas - a secluded oasis away from the hectic tourist areas, but just steps from the beautiful Anna Maria beaches. The Villas offer true relaxation with every amenity you could possibly need. (even bikes) The garden area is a true work of gardening art. Christy and Chuck, the owners, are very gracious hosts. We liked it so much, we hope to come back for a longer stay.
Our vacation was perfect! We stayed in villa 104, a two bedroom unit, and could not have been happier. The villas surround a beautiful courtyard with tables/chairs and a large fountain. Several of the other units were rented at the time of our stay but we never felt crowded or intruded upon. The unit was exceptionally clean and well stocked. The owners have plenty of beach toys to keep even a teenager happy! We stayed 7 nights, and the only downside was us having to leave. My favorite part of the Villas is the garden at night. There are several lanterns lit that make the garden feel magical. We cannot wait to come back and have already shared the information with others! Thank you for a wonderful vacation, Rachel
Stayed here again this year, we brought our daughter and her friend to celebrate our girls 13th birthday. We were lucky to get the villa we stayed in last year( the Bird of paradise villa) We had a great stay and the owners were so nice to have decorated the villa with some decorations I sent down ahead of us so our daughter would be surprised!! They REALLY go out of their way to make your stay special!
We are thinking of getting 3 villas next year to bring the whole family down , feel the need to share this GEM. SEE YOU NEXT YEAR AMI !!!!
