We loved staying at Debby’s Place!! We were traveling with my father so we wanted something without steps. This house was perfect. Every bedroom has privacy. The pool was great, not huge, but perfect for one family. The kitchen was amazing and fun to cook in. I haven’t seen another house with such a great kitchen and everything on one floor. The garage was also a bonus and had everything we needed for beach or pool, plus two bicycles. The house was very clean and within walking distance to beach just down the street. Only negative I can think of is it would have been nice to have a television in the third bedroom. Can’t wait to come back to Debby’s Place. Already planning to come back???

This was our 2nd year in a row to stay at Debby’s Place. We are long term renters so we get to know the property and location extremely well. It’s like our second home. The listing is accurately described. The property is well maintained and the house is very clean. The manager Suzanne is exceptional. Always available any problems or issues were dealt with in a timely and efficient manner. The house has a great pool and patio area. The beach is a 5 minute walk away. The trolley route is very handy. Eateries on AMI are to numerous to mention but all have something to offer. We enjoyed some live theatre in Sarasota at the Asolo Repertory Theatre. We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends.

I've been spending at least a month on Anna Maria for over 15 years--this is my favorite house. Big, open rooms, beautifully decorated, accommodating of many activities. Complete separation of the three bedrooms. A great pool, but close to Gulf beach, and who can resist that? Take free trolley down island on one end of the block, up island on the other end, so you can get about easily if you don't want to drive. Best of all, if some problem should arise, Suzanne, the manager, is fast, thorough, and as pleasant as you can imagine. By all means, tell her what's up. Be sure you have crême brûlée French toast at Ginny and Jane E's, shrimp and grits at The Mermaid, fried green tomatoes at The Waterfront, and humongous pork "chop" with wine and mushroom sauce at The Island Grill. Beach-walk around Bean Point, buy the day's catch of Gulf shrimp at Star Fish Co in Cortez (on the grill!), go to Mote Aquarium, the Ringling house, circus, and art museums, and catch a flaming Florida sunset on any beach (for a somewhat tamer treat, do sunrise on the Bay side). Rent a kayak or paddle board, take an eco tour (Cap'n Kim is really good--see local merchants map), tour the art galleries and gift shops. There's always too much to do, but most of all, there's lazing around this special home.

The owner and manager were fantastic to work with. The location is one block from the beach. The house is very spacious and has all you need to cook meals and enjoy your day at the beach. I highly recommended this place.

Perfect! Our stay was more than expected. House is beautiful and everything described was accurate. Clean, beautiful décor, super large kitchen (well supplied), pool super nice, even included beach towels, beach wagon, toys for pool and beach, and beach umbrella. Rod & Reel Pier easy walk. Beach across street and no one else was ever there. Enjoyed early morning walks on beach and Bean Point had lots of seashells. There were 6 adults and our 1 year old granddaughter and we all had a marvelous time! Want ocean go to Sycamore Street or White Avenue. Always had parking and was close to the house Enjoyed shopping and eating on Pine Avenue!!! Easy to make reservations and everyone was very helpful with my questions. Thanks so much and hope to return soon.

Loved the Mermaids Basket - The house was amazing! Everything we needed for the beach and our daily hangin out. The pool was perfect, especially the lighting at night. We stay on Anna Maria Island a couple times a year, and I rate this stay as our favorite thus far???. Amy, David and Jake ( our dog son)

Beautiful home and close to the beach! We loved our stay at this home! It's a beautifully decorated, spacious well-cared-for home on a quiet little street about a block from the beach. This house has everything you need for the beach: a rolling cart, donut rafts, umbrella anchors, umbrellas, chairs and 2 really nice Schwin bicycles. The garage is a huge plus and has room for a car and a golf cart if you rent one. The pool was awesome, especially with the blue light at night! Also, the landscaping is very nice, and the backyard is private. We loved our stay at Mermaids Basket /Debbys Place. Can't wait to go back :-)
