We recently returned from our second visit at Lemon Cottage. We had a wonderful time. The cottage is lovely, homey, comfortable, organized and has pretty well everything you'd ever need. We love the pool and the lanai, and the layout of the cottage is great for a family with kids.
The owner is great to deal with,,,very friendly, professional and prompt.
The only negative I could mention is that some of the beach toys were broken and the kids were a little disappointed....but that's a pretty minor thing overall.
We love Anna Maria Island and the surrounding area and hope to return to Lemon Cottage again in the future.
This is our 3rd stay at Lemon cottage, 3 consecutive years in a row, and our 4th stay at Chris & family's rentals. It is our 6th year staying on Anna Maria at the end of Sept. Once again everything is great about Lemon cottage, now we think of it almost as our own cottage or timeshare! lol. We love everything we have mentioned previously, the porch & lanai, the amenities and location, and Chris' attention to his guests. I cant see any reason why we wont make 2016 our 4th Sept to stay at Lemon. Highly recommended by our family...we love it. Thanks again Chris and family
Our first experience of holiday rentals and would highly recommend the Lemon Cottage and Anna Maria Island. This property is in a peaceful setting but close to the beach and restaurant and having the pool to come home to was a real bonus, with the lanai prevented the mozzies outside in the evening. The Lemon was decorated with the attention to detail that made it feel like you were a guest in someone's home rather than a clinical rental property. We've been back 3 days and still can't think of anything negative to say. Big thanks to the owner Chris and his family.
If you are looking for the perfect get-a-way, look no longer! This house is it! This house is situated in a safe, nice neighborhood and has everything you could possibly need for the perfect home away from home. We really needed a break from our busy day to day lives and we could have been content to spend all of our time just enjoying all the amenities that the house had to offer. The pool and lania area were so hard to leave even if we had other plans. Of course we also enjoyed great beach time with the use of Chris's beach wagon and other beach necessities. There is so much to do on the island and surrounding areas that you will wonder where all the time has gone when you have to return home. We will definitely return to rent from the So family again.
We stayed one week last year and two weeks this year. We really liked this home!! It had everything, including bikes!! It is a very "techy" home, and well appointed! Lemon is in a lovely neighborhood, close to the Publix, drug stores and a short drive to the shops in Anna Maria. We enjoyed going to several nature preserves, St. Armond circle shops, and last year we enjoyed the Ringling mansion tour and the Mote Labs facility in Longboat Key. Anna Maria Island is still "old Florida" and just low key and lovely!! Just bring your shorts, t-shirts and swim suit!!! Lemon Cottage will welcome you!
