"Great vacation place."
My wife and I spent a month at Villa Conch and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is clean and well appointed with everything you might need for a great vacation. It is centrally located on the Island with the beach just across the street. Extreamely convenient for walking on the beach. A free trolly runs around the island, which makes it easy to get around and not have to worry about parking. Many good restaurants on the Island which causes a problem of which to choose. Overall a great experience.
Dave many thanks for taking the time to post this lovely review - very much appreciated. Delighted you had a great time and we look forward to having you back with us next February.
Kind Regards, Kieran

"Beautiful holiday home in perfect location"
Just returned from spending a week at Villa Conch and we couldn't have been happier! It is beautifully decorated and furnished, very clean and has everything you could possibly wish for to make your holiday perfect.
Anna Maria is a beautiful, lush, green island and Villa Conch is perfectly situated, only a few steps from a gorgeous white sand beach where we spent all of our days. Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance and a free trolley bus for those a bit further afield.
A very relaxing holiday in a beautiful "home from home". We did not want to leave!

"Beautiful Island - Would love to return"
Having visited Florida several times over the years and loving the gulf coast barrier islands we discovered Anna Maria Island when searching the internet for somewhere new. We're so glad we stumbled upon it. This island destination is just beautiful. This condo is ideally placed with the free trolley bus stops just steps away. Bridge street with its various restaurants and shops is just a short stroll away so ideal if you don't want to use the trolley which stops operating about 10.30pm so can curtail your entertainment at night!!. Condo is modern, very clean and has all the amenities you will need. We had an extremely relaxing stay and enjoyed this complex immensly. It is just steps away from the beautiful beach from which we rented kayaks and were lucky enough to see a manatee close up - definitely the highlight of our holiday. Would totally recommend.

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!!!

"A fun week!"
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.

"A Little Taste of Paradise!"
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.

"Can we go again?"
We travelled as a couple and found the house to be in great condition, very clean and with great amenities e.g. large garage in which it was easy to park the car, a modern kitchen and comfortable beds and sofas. In short, a real home from home. It is also in a fantastic location. The beach is about a two minute walk away, on the other side of an easily crossed road and there are deck chairs and sun umbrellas in the garage for you to take across there. There is a swimming pool as part of the development and a walk through to the inter-costal waterway which is a great place to watch the sunrise. There is a free trolley bus which runs the length of the island which makes it really easy to get around.
This was our first visit to Anna Maria Island. The island has a very 'chilled out' holiday feel to it, which made it easy to relax from day 1. With a beautiful beach which runs the length of the island, plenty of good quality restaurants and a wide selection of shops it's a great place to spend some time.
In summary, this is a well-maintained property in an excellent location and we wouldn't hesitate to book to stay again.
