Always the traveler who seeks value first, I found #106-The Cove at Sandy Pointe after searching TripAdvisor's many listings on Anna Maria Island. If you are doing your research at this moment, you already know that you can spend a lot to stay on AMI. Please rest assured that you will not sacrifice quality in this Condo just because you got a great deal. Owners Jo and Andy obviously take pride in their vacation property, because everything feels new and very nicely maintained. I found absolutely no mold or mildew anywhere in the Condo and the paint was precise and new in appearance. There is a Zen theme to the wall art which we very much liked, and the simple furnishings and hard wood floors were nice and very comfortable. The new stainless appliances, along with the complete kitchenware that was provided gave us a great place to put together the evening hors d'oeuvres and drinks, as well as quick breakfasts each morning. And, what a nice place to relax after a day at the beach (!). Which brings me to the Condo's real value, it's location. You will find that the two main roads on AMI can get quite crowded with tourists, so how nice it is that the Cove at Sandy Pointe is beautifully set back from those same busy streets. Trust me, you will appreciate this at the end of your day. It's quiet setting amidst well maintained tropical gardens is appreciated, and there is a very nice pool if you are so inclined after your days on the beautiful sand of AMI. *Note: We found the Publix Market right across the street to be a great supermarket with excellent deli offerings (everything was fresh), and the gulf shrimp were delicious. Also, the deli is located right next to a surprisingly good wine section, which is not always available on the east coast of the U.S. as wine offerings can sometimes be marginal. I highly recommend this very nice Condo, and would also like to thank Jo for her prompt and friendly business style. What a great experience.
