“Luxury, top of the range fittings in an individual style that catered for all our family needs”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

From the start of booking our 40 Wedding Anniversary holiday Kent was most helpful, ensuring that we had everything we could possibly need. We were met at our accommodation and given a guided tour. There were telephone numbers to contact Kent and Pa if needed plus emergency services, time table for the free island bus trolley.
Having stayed with Kent and Pa before we had an idea of what to expect but the house surpassed our expectations. The photos on the web site don't do it justice. The house is furnished and decorated in Pa's individual style: you won't find anything like it in any other accommodation.
The pool is to dream for with its lush gardens and screened off to help keep out the beasties. There is a fantastic music system which can be switched to the pool side speakers. More than this, it was set with 60's and 70's music - just our thing. The garage is well equipped with everything that a family may need for a day at the beach, playing in the pool or cycling around the island.
Anna Maria has numerous eating out places but we preferred to stay at home and use the BBQ - the food is so cheap and there is a wide range to choose from; love the Key Lime pie and the rib eye steaks. The kitchen is well stocked so it pays to check the cupboards before buying condiments etc.
With a husband who loves to fish, Anna Maria is ideal, and for those who love the beach, well there are plenty to choose from - we preferred the Bay of Mexico side.
There is nothing that we didn't like about either the house or the island, in fact most of the time I just enjoyed chilling out around the pool or the beach with my sister in law while husband and brother went off fishing. Such a peaceful holiday. Kent and Pa are the ideal thoughtful holiday hosts. We will go back again.

It was an honor to be part of your celebration of 40 years of wedded bliss! We certainly intend to follow your example and hope you inspire many other couples. We were also tickled that you enjoyed your morning coffee under the mango tree on the front porch. Thank you so much for sharing your comments! Pa & Kent
