We were very pleased with our stay, the condo and the exceptional customer service we received. Terry went above and beyond to call and email us to ensure we did not need anything and offered many suggestions of things to do. The unit was clean and one of the best we have stayed in. Though the unit is not beach front, it is a minimal walk to the beach. There are so many things to do within the distance of the condo. We will be back next year and staying here again. Thank you for a painless vacation!

My Response:

Hi Amy, Thank you for the nice review it is very much appreciated. I cannot express to you how happy we are that you booked for next year before you even arrived at our condo. We are looking forward to having you as our guests again next summer. Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. Sincerely, Terry, Sandy & Family

this condo exceeded our expectations. When you walk in the view is the first think you notice and it is mesmerizing. Beautifully decorated with no expense spared. All decor is modern and appropriate with muted tones and designed for comfort. The flooring is a light color of white, greys and light blue but its texture is soft on bare feet. The showers have to have a mention as they were beautiful with granite shower walls and rain fall shower heads. Perfection! Terry was a wonderful host. He checked in on us from time to time to offer suggestions on restaurants and to see if we needed anything. We took his recommendations and he didn’t lead us astray, wonderful food. Sitting on the balcony at night was a favorite pastime. Terry was stocked up with beach chairs, umbrellas, toys and towels. The beds were so soft! you sink right into them. Thank you Terry and Sandy for sharing your beautiful condo with us and we hope to see you soon…Diana Paris

Absolute Anna Maria was in a perfect location . It was decorated beautifully and for a family of 4, it was all the room we needed. The kitchen was a joy to cook in; all new appliances and stocked with everything we might need. the condo overlooks the pool and beach so you really couldn’t ask for a better location. All the neighbors were very nice and helpful and Terry was very attentive. Can’t wait to return! ….J

Perfect Vacation getaway. The condo was in excellent condition and VERY clean. Balcony view of the pool and an ocean view. This condo is walking distance to many different restaurants, ice cream shop, putt putt, pier, as well as little Beach shops. We parked our car on Saturday and didn’t touch it till Thursday. The owner of this condo is by far the best I have ever worked with. Truly amazing people that genuinely want you to have a GREAT stay at their condo. I would HIGHLY recommend this condo and we will definitely be back!

We absolutely loved the location of this condo! We explored all the beaches but found the one directly across the road had the best beach and least amount of people. We walked to a different restaurant every evening. It’s close to the bridge street warf where we rented fishing rods. Lots of shopping handy too. The condo itself was very well equipped with everything we needed to cook and go to the beach. Beds where super comfy. The TV was huge with a ton of channels…not that we had time to watch it much! Our 3 kids slept in the guest bedroom and had lots of room for their things. All the furniture was very modern and new. The view from the deck is stunning but u can also see the ocean from almost every window. On our arrival there was wine and chocolates on the counter waiting for us. Terry was super helpful and gave us lots of advice on where to eat and what to see. He also gave us his cell number if we needed help with anything. We loved our stay and would return in a heartbeat!

Artificial Intelligence & Vacation Rental Properties

Artificial intelligence (AI) is here to stay, but is the vacation rental industry ready for it?
Amazon’s Echo product that features the famous virtual persona Alexa and Google’s Home product both boasted booming sales in 2017. These products that have become common in consumers’ homes are now moving into the hospitality industry. Shifting from strictly residential home-use devices to commercial environments brings concerns. Those concerns include not just the cost of the technology, but also how AI engages guests and security and privacy concerns since the devices record and listen at all times, although they do have a mute and disable functionality.
 alexa_for_vacation_rentals_smart_tech_anna-maria-island-condo-rentals
Do you want privacy and like to avoid human interaction when on vacation? Soon you might not have to pick up the phone, you can just talk to Alexa or Google.
Amazon recently launched Alexa for Hospitality, which places specially programmed Amazon Echos at participating Marriott Hotels starting this summer. Marriott will be the first chain to install AI in some rooms. The Echo devices will work like the ones you have at home, but will have some skills specific to hotels. You will be able to call front desk, order room service, housekeeping, adjust the thermostat and book a spa treatment. If the hotel has enabled it, the Echo will be able to control the room’s lighting, temperature, and television—great news for germaphobes who hate touching hotel remotes or light switches. Guests will also have the option to connect their personal Amazon account to the Echo, so that they can stream their own music or listen to their audiobooks. Their account will be automatically disconnected upon checkout.
 Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals
So how is Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals – 601 Gulf Dr. N. Anna Maria Island, Florida 34217 moving forward with this relatively new technology? The only thing that is holding us back is the privacy concerns.
Would you be excited or disturbed to see an always listening Amazon Echo in your vacation rental property? Each one of the players, Amazon, Google and Apple offer different things, do you have a preference? What kind of questions would you ask and what sort of requests would you have? As we continually look for ways to enhance each guest experience we are researching how we can help the AI device enhance those experiences for you, our guests.
Let us know your thoughts. We are listening 🙂

PARASAILING ON ANNA MARIA ISLAND

Florida is the most popular place in the United States to go parasailing because of its breathtaking beauty. To highlight your vacation with Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals – 601 Gulf Dr. N. Anna Maria Island, Florida 34217 consider hitting the skies on a parasailing adventure. Whether you’re looking for something to do with your teens or with your recently retired parents, parasailing is truly a once in a lifetime experience.

parasailing-anna-maria-island

PARASAILING! While gently floating high above the clear, blue water of the Gulf of Mexico, parasailing off the coast of Anna Maria Island is like sailing in paradise. With breathtaking panoramic views of the Gulf and intracoastal waterways, dolphins, turtles or stingray can possibly be seen. As you soar over the glistening water and the coastline unfolds before your eyes, parasailing will probably be the most exciting thing you have done all year or maybe ever!

PARASAILING For the First Time?  Here Are A Few Tips to help you confidently book your Adventure —

anna-maria-island-parasailing

— Lifejackets on before you step foot on the boat. For your sail you will be fitted with a special harness and gently launched and retrieved with the use of a hydraulic winch system. You take-off and land directly on the boat. Take-off’s and landings are very slow and gentle.

— There are myths that to parasail you need to be able to swim. Not true, you do not need to be a swimmer to parasail. Parasailing is actually one of the only watersports where no swimming is required to fully enjoy it.

— Most companies have weight and height restrictions. Be sure to check these upon booking to see if they affect anyone in your group.

— Check the local weather before you parasail. Clear and bright days are best for maximum visibility for sightseeing as well as for good communication with the boat captain. Prior to booking check the companies inclement weather policy, most will not leave the dock. As we have no control of the weather I suggest planning your parasailing during the first part of your vacation, that way you still have time if rescheduling is necessary.

—   If you have a fear of heights or panic easily parasailing might not be for you. This might be true for some, but our last time parasailing a group ahead of us shared that he is terrified of heights and she is terrified of falling, and they both loved parasailing. So if they weren’t afraid while they were parasailing, maybe you won’t be either. If someone has told you it is like a rollercoaster, I think it is more like sitting in a swing gently floating up and back down. There is none of that sinking feeling in your stomach like when you go down the hill on a roller coaster.

Vacationing and Parasailing should be serene, peaceful and memorable. Neither require skill or any previous experience. Both allow you to sit back, relax and enjoy. We hope while visiting with us your experiences leave you with wonderful memories you won’t soon forget.

Below are two local companies to consider (Both are about a 5 minute walk from Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals).  —
