“Lovely, spotless villa nestled in beautifully planted grounds, just a path away from exquisite gulf beach.”

My husband and I travelled to beautiful Anna Maria Island June 2015 and stayed at Island Garden Villas. The villa was wonderful. It was decorated beautifully, cozy, efficient and spotless. We were happy to meet owners Christy and Chuck during our stay; they were very friendly. The time and care they put into these villas is apparent. The grounds are exquisitely landscaped and planted with beautiful flowers, trees, and foliage. All items you could possibly need are available for the beach. We also loved the well equipped kitchen and the super comfortable king bed. I cannot put into words how much I loved Holmes beach which was a short pathway from our villa ... Wonderfully clear 85 degree gulf water, silky soft sand, smooth sand bottom in the water, not crowded, soft waves, gently sloping bottom, with a great sandbar (Jim picked up a star fish on the sandbar) ... and last but not least marvelous sunsets. We saw manatees, dolphins, starfish, fiddler crab, pelicans, egrets, many fish ... found some unique shells (not big, but beautiful colors). Found some good, local restaurants and ice cream places. Loved our week at Anna Maria Island Garden Island Villas. I could make this a yearly trip.

“home away from home paradise”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We live on the Florida east coast and wanted a caribbean vacation feel without having to get on a plane or cruise and I'm so glad I took the countless hours on-line to find this GEM tucked away on Anna Marie Island. Just talking to the owners Christy and Chuck, I knew I was booking the perfect place. The nicest people you could ever meet!!! They have made anyone who stays with them feel like they never left home. everything you might reach for at home - they have thought of it! weather its a kitchen item,laundry necessity,beach chairs and boogie boards/toys,beach towels books/movies/games,ITS ALL THERE!! And if it isn't , they were always easy to find around the villas( keeping the gardens beautifully manicured) to just ask and they did they're best to get what ever it was you needed!!!
We will be going back over to the island again and Island Garden Villas will be the one and only place we will be staying!!!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The villas were beautiful, clean, very quiet, and peaceful. The gardens were amazing, especially when lit up at night! It was very nice having everything you needed for the beach and having a nice beach path across the road. We were also surprised to see that a supply of books, movies, and games were available in the villa for use. The owners are fabulous and very helpful. The island itself is a very beautiful, clean, and family friendly!

“Delightful accommodations in an incredibly beautiful and intimate tropical garden.”
Reviewed 29 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have stayed at GBV for the past two years and are scheduled for a third. Our villa is very comfortable and sufficiently appointed. The gardens are spectacular, serene and cozy. We love that the beach is located just across the street. You'll find that the caretakers, Christy and Chuck are just incredible.

We go every year, sometimes twice a year and just love it. Very relaxing, very green with beautiful surrounding plants and orchards. Beautiful courtyard and even the laundry room is welcoming. Directly across from the beach. And "Blackie The Cat" will welcome you.
The owners are a delight to know. Can't wait until May to go back. See ya soon Christie.

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.
