“Sweet Stay for Everyone”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Mike and Lesley were very attentive for the entire rental process and our experience with them and the home could not have been better. The property is nicely furnished, very homey, and had everything we needed for our end of September early October Fall break stay. We loved the pool and hot tub! We used the wagon for our short walks to the beach and it worked out well. There was even a shade canopy that we could easily load and set up at the beach that came in handy during the 85 degree sunny days. The outdoor shower was also great for getting the sand off after our beach adventures. We cooked many meals in the well-equipped kitchen and found everything we needed. We rented bikes and had them easily delivered and picked up from the house. Our 9 and 11 year old loved having their own rooms! While there were only four of us, we could have brought a couple more family members comfortably. This rental is pretty, clean, and well cared for...we hope to return soon!

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and found that the location of our home and it's facilities made your stay so enjoyable. The pool and spa that we added August 2014 have proved to be a great success with our guests - who also appreciate that there are no additional costs for pool/spa heating.

We'd love to have you come stay again anytime and as with all returning guests, will be pleased to offer a special' returning guest rental rate'.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review - we are very grateful.

“Honeymoon”

Michael and Lesley were wonderful to work with. Their home was amazing in all aspects! It was a beautiful place to stay during our honeymoon. The private spa and pool were an amazing addition after a few cold beverages at the beach. We would highly recommend Michael, Lesley and their home to anyone looking to get away to a nice & quiet place. The local close knit beach side community was worth it. AMI is truly a lazy beach town with gorgeous beaches.

We regard it as a major compliment that your chose 'A Pearl of a Beach Home' for your Honeymoon. Such a special time in your lives with lots of memories for years to come - and we are so glad that you had an amazing time.

Our aim is make everyone's stay memorable and to enjoy the comforts at our vacation home when we can't be there ourselves.
That it proved to work so well for the two of you and that you were able to share in our home - our own 'a little piece of paradise' and enjoy the fantastic beaches of Anna Maria Island which are only a a few blocks away, brings a special smile to our faces.

Needless to say we welcome a return visit anytime you can drag yourselves away from work and thank you for taking the time to write a review.

“A Dream Holiday”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

We wanted a dream holiday to celebrate special birthdays and we certainly got that with our stay at A Pearl of a Beach Home. The house is all you could ask for and more to enable you to have a wonderful holiday. It is beautifully furnished and presented; the owners have certainly thought of everything to make your time there as relaxing and easy as possible. The pool and spa are fabulous; we used it every day and the hammock was a real hit with my husband. It felt like being at home - but better. Anna Maria is a great place to get away from it all and everybody we met was very friendly and helpful. Mike and Lesley are a delight to deal with. They gave us lots of help and advice both before and during our trip; nothing is too much trouble. Many thanks to you both for allowing us to use your stunning home.

We love to have guests from ''over the pond'' and are pleased that you chose 'A Pearl of a Beach Home' for your very special, ''dream vacation''.

That you consider it to be '' like home - but better'' shows that the thought, time and care we put into our vacation home is on target.

It is important to us that our guests arrive at a well equipped, well presented and spotlessly clean home where they can relax and enjoy their well deserved vacation.

That the delights of the pool and spa are so often commented on by you and our other guests is really pleasing as we wanted their addition to compliment the other features of the house and yard.

It is really important to us that your stay was memorable - so that you want to come back again to celebrate your next special birthdays with us on Anna Maria Island! Keep in touch and have a great Fall in old England.

“Fantastic Getaway!!!”

people found this review helpful

This is an absolutely lovely home. I concur with another reviewer who stated the pictures do not do it justice. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood, yet is close to everything you need ... including a 4 minute walk to the beautiful beach. The home is spacious, beautifully decorated, very well maintained and clean. Everything about the home is top quality. They really do have everything one could want on a vacation. I really think they thought of everything!! Mike and Lesley are amazing to respond to you very quickly via email with any questions or concerns you may have (questions we had, concerns we did not); their turnaround time is commendable. I would highly recommend this home to family, friends and colleagues and I am confident they would not be disappointed!! Thank you Mike and Lesley. It was a pleasure staying in your home and we will definitely stay here again whenever we return to this part of the island.

Mattresses very comfortable! It was nice to have all the beach stuff there and towels! Location was great near the beach, restaurants, and the trolley was just across the road. You can walk to boat ramp and stores. The pool and hot tub area is shaded in the late afternoon, giving you a nice break from the sun. The owners are great to deal with and fast with responding to any questions. I will definitely stay at this house again !
