“A beautiful villa in an idyllic location”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We booked week in Plumfish Villa on Anna Maria after spending our first four days in Disney in Orlando and it was a very welcome change after the hustle and bustle!

On arrival to the island we were amazed by how pretty and picturesque it was, it was just like something from a postcard. The villa is on the far end of Anna Maria Island and is managed by Sato Real Estate, where we picked our keys from.
The Villa is situated on Gull Drive and is about a 5 minute walk to the coast near Rod and Reel Pier, a 10 minute walk to the main street of Pine Avenue (and where you can catch the free trolley from) and 15 minutes to the main stretch of beach. Bikes can be easily hired from Beach Bums if you don’t fancy walking and want to explore further afield on the island but the trolley is very useful for getting to Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach.

The villa is in a quiet cul-de-sac with views over the lake and it has a small pool as well. The villa itself is huge and was prefect accommodation for two couples, with 2 big double bedrooms both en-suite and were very colourful and well decorated. The kitchen area was open plan and had everything you needed if you had wanted to cook whilst you were there. The favourite part for us all was the balcony with the lovely views across the lake which had a huge table and chairs and this is where we spent most of our time when at the villa. The villa was well equipped, well maintained and very nicely decorated. If I had one complaint it would be that the towel’s in the villa were a bit thread bare and probably could do with replacing. The villa is very lovely and we would happily go back and I would recommend it especially for 2 couples holidaying together as there is plenty of space and both bedrooms are equally as nice.

The local area of Anna Maria Island is just beautiful. On our first night we went for a drink on the Rod and Reel Pier which has an amazing view and very special when you see the dolphins bobbing in and out of the ocean which was an amazing surprise! The main beach is also very lovely with white sand and turquoise sea, just like something from a holiday brochure. On Sunday the Sand Bar on the main beach do a lovely brunch with live music, we really enjoyed the sand bar for lunches. We also enjoyed going to Feeling Swell for a drink after the day on the beach, which has a happy hour.

We eat in Slim’s Place which didn’t look overly inviting from the outside and is what I think is a proper American bar but had a very nice meal. Portions like everywhere else are huge and I found the crabcake starter with the homemade coleslaw very enjoyable and more than plenty for a main course.
Whilst we were there it was our wedding anniversary so we all went to the Waterfront restaurant after reading the reviews on TA to celebrate. I pre-booked a table a couple of weeks before and we also checked the booking on the day and requested a table with seaviews and explained it was our anniversary. On arrival we were told we could have a table without a view or have to wait for a seaview table which I found a bit disappointing when we had booked. The food was very good and the décor beautiful but I found there was something missing, it was a bit clinical.
For lunches we had a burrito from Poppo's Taqueria on the beach which was good and we also went to Bradenton Beach for the day and ate lunch in the Bridgetender which had lovely views and we had great food, the burger was perfect and the service excellent.

Our favourite place to eat all holiday had to be Rod and Reel. There is always a wait for a table but we were happy waiting and having a drink from the bar on the pier and watching the dolphin show! We had breakfast and dinner twice here and all meals were excellent. The fresh fish was gorgeous, I really enjoyed the blacken grouper. Portions were huge so for me and my husband we found sharing a starter and a main course plenty. The food is good but the views do make this restaurant. Breakfast are also excellent, the omelettes are huge and I didn’t need to eat again until the evening!

The Publix supermarket in Holmes Beach is massive and excellent for any supplies you may need. We had a couple of BBQ’s at the villa and got lovely fish and steaks from here, as well as Key Lime Pie. The general store in Anna Maria is useful for picking up bits and their homemade brownies are lovely.

We had an amazing week in Anna Maria Island and would highly recommend it for a week get away from everything. The peace and quiet is lovely and there are lots of great places to eat. The island has a lovely relaxed feel to it and the people are just lovely. I would definitely like to go back.
