We have just returned from a fantastic week in Villa Conch. it was just what we needed after a manic two weeks in Orlando/ Disney. The Villa is fantastic in a beautiful location literally 2 mins walk from the beach, which is georgeous (white sand and blue sea) and lots of shells and sharks teeth to collect!!!! We have a child with Cerebral Palsy who struggles to walk any distance so the trolley stop at the end of the driveway was brilliant for us because it meant we cud get anywhere on the island with ease. The pool and hot tub were great and we always managed to get sun beds, it almost felt like a private pool!!! There's loads to do on the island we hired a boat and watched the dolphins swimming round us, went jet skiing and parasailing all of which were fantastic!!! I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone and although we don't usually return to places because we feel there's always somewhere new to visit this is an exception to the rule and we will definitely return at some point! Just to mention it was all so straight forward and we had contact numbers in case we had any problems which we didn't so all in all we couldn't have hoped for more!!! Thanks for having us we had a totally amazing time!!!

We spent a lovely week at Villa Conch with another couple. While the weather was cool and very windy, it was sunny every day. The beach is just across the street so we walked each morning -- going south you can walk to all the shops and restaurants of Bradenton Beach. The condo is well taken care of, clean, and nicely furnished. Great kitchen. Decks off the front, rear, and upstairs off one of the bedrooms. The elevator was terrifically handy for moving our suitcases in and out, since the living space is on the second and third floors. The gas grill in the garage is not in any shape to use but there is another one a few steps away by the pool. (It was too cold to swim).
Villa Conch's location is centrally located in a pretty crowded area of Bradenton Beach, so you're close to lots of activities. The condos themselves are very close to each other; you are just a few feet away from your neighbors' decks, so you don't have much privacy which depending on what you're looking for may or may not be an issue. For us it was fine, we enjoyed ourselves, cooked some great meals, and had a wonderful time. Many thanks for Kieran Smith for their lovely Villa Conch.

For our first trip to Florida we were delighted to have chosen to stay on Anna Maria Island and in particular in the very welcoming Villa Conch town house. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, with tasteful and modern decoration. It is air-conditioned and spacious with excellent en-suite facilities. It very soon felt like a comfortable home from home.The location was superb with the glorious white beach only two minutes walk away. We had use of the pool and jacuzzi. As well as having the option to go to the beach we also enjoyed sitting on the nearby private jetty overlooking the bay watching the amazing wildlife. Other times we enjoyed sitting on the town house's south facing balcony or hopping on the free trolly bus to explore the island and enjoy its local shops, bars and restaurants. We were saddened when the time came to leave and will want to stay in the same accomodation again when we next visit AMI.
