We had the opportunity to visit Island Garden Villas before deciding to stay there for our beach vacation week. We originally wanted a place with a private pool, but after spending a day looking for one, we determined that the amenities at the Island Garden Villas would meet our needs. The owners are super friendly, and the villas have an old-fashioned charm. Each unit is private, with its own enclosed patio and surrounding tropical foliage, so that we felt truly comfortable in our own place. Parking is directly outside each unit, so very convenient. The interiors are updated and roomy, but homey, so you feel like you're at a 'home away from home'. The cleanliness really impressed us. The rates are very reasonable for the location, even the pet fee is lower than other places we looked at. The beach front is just across the street and down a short path. Everything you need for your beach enjoyment (chairs, umbrellas, floats, towels, even a wagon to carry the load, etc). are provided by the owners. We feel sure we will return next year for our annual beach week.

Liked best: The location to the beach, the tropical landscaping, and it is pet friendly.
Liked least: We had to wash our towels in the laundry machines on location when leaving, and pay for this inconvenience in addition to our rental fee.

“A perfect vacation...clean, comfortable, and with all amenities just as described on website.”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in a one bedroom villa which was immaculate and very comfortable. Everything we needed was there including a beach umbrella, beach towels and beach chairs. I was really impressed with how well Christy and Chuck thought to provide us with even the little things needed for an enjoyable stay at the beach. The villas are located just a mile from Manatee Ave and the main bridge off the island. We could walk across the street and down a short shaded beach path to the ocean in about a minute and a half to catch the sunset everyday. I especially enjoyed walking through the awesome tropical gardens surrounding the villas. Christy was easy to reach for any questions we had. Chuck was quick to work on some bicycle repairs needed when brought to his attention. I was impressed the bicycles were included in our stay at no additional cost.

“Amazing Oasis-I want to keep this place a secret so I can return!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

EVERYTHING you could possibly need for the beach is provided, including a selection of magazines! Beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, and a cart to haul everything to the beach, a shot stroll across the street. Really comfortable furnishings, clean as it can be, and available owners make this a great place to stay. The whole family had a great time. The gardens are amazing. The on site laundry and the hot tub are great bonus. The kitchen has every possible serving piece, cooking gadget, even nice goblets and china to serve food. The private patio area for every villa and assigned parking also make for a stress free vacation. I cannot wait to go back! My teens found a lot to do on the island thanks to the trolley. I could hang out on a nice quiet beach area and they could enjoy the high energy atmosphere of another beach spot. Chuck and Kristy are amazing.

“Beautiful garden, terribly nice decorated and close to the beach”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We did like the property with the beautiful garden and the nice decorated house. Everything you need for the beach is available (beach waggon, umbrella, toys, chairs, towels). And the owners cared for everything we needed eg. a small bike for our son (6 years). As well we enjoyed the lovely island and we certainly consider to return.
