"We loved our stay at Anchor Down's condo. The place was clean, and we felt at home upon arrival. A representative called us the morning after check-in to ensure we had everything we needed. The covered parking spot was a plus, and the pool was perfectly located. The bikes and beach chairs provided were a nice touch as well. We would recommend this place and Anchor Down's to anyone looking for a clean perfectly located home away from home. We will definitely be back again!"

"This is the 2nd time my family and I have stayed on this property and even in this same building, but 1st time in this unit. We enjoyed the sunset views on the sound from this unit and if you're not staying oceanfront it really is a great option. The place was clean and spacious for my family. When we stayed here last year, we were able to walk around the entire community and my husband and I enjoyed that. We would stay here again."

"We enjoyed our stay at the Holmes Beach Retreat. The location is excellent, a very short drive to the beaches on AMI and close to more complete services in Bradenton if you should need them. The condo is spacious and comfortably furnished, with a lovely lanai from which we watched pelicans, roseate spoonbills, and egrets. The layout of the condo is very nice as well, with the master bedroom off the main living area and the other two bedrooms off a separate hall. And since there are no beach chair rentals on the AMI beaches it is really convenient that the condo's storage unit next to the assigned parking spot has beach chairs, umbrellas, and other beach accessories for you to use."

"The condo is awesome! Only negative i could give is the pool has about 10 chairs which is a bit ridiculous considering there are about 6 or 7 bldgs of @10 condos each. Other than that its a fantastic place!"

"WOW! What an immaculate home! Not only was the apartment clean and exactly as listed, but it was fully stocked with everything you could possibly want for a vacation. The sunset views from the screened-in porch were stunning and the ease of getting to the pool and available amenities was second to none. The unit had a storage closet FULL of anything you could want for the beach, including a wagon to lug everything! We were a family of 7 (including 2 small children) and we felt the unit was incredibly spacious. The location was amazing, 10 min drive to Anna Maria Island and generally so much to do in the area. The area felt very secure and safe as well. We will definitely be returning!"

"The unit is beautiful, modern, spacious and very clean. Design has a subtle beachy vibe. Bunk beds were a great touch for my family and each room had a bathroom to call its own. Kitchen was very well equipped and great for entertaining. The property is just across the bridge from Anna Maria island and one of its primary beaches. Access the island via a quick drive, bike ride or trolley (free!). Pool, splash pad and playground were all enjoyed my my kids. Overall a great stay - have already recommended to family and friends."

It was in a very nice, quiet gated community with a nice pool, grilling area and children’s playground. Highly recommend the restaurant (Floridays) on the property. We rented through Anchored Down Vacation rentals. Kristi was very helpful with all our questions. This rental also had a storage closet that had bicycles, beach chairs, pool toys, etc."

"This property was amazing to stay in. It was beautiful. Lanai was so relaxing and the furniture was very comfortable. Plenty of room even with a table that would seat 6. Nice open space inside. Two of the bedrooms had king beds which is a must for us. The 3rd bedroom had bunk beds. Great for a large family. Pool wasn't crowded. However, the pool was much too small for this complex. I imagine in the summer it's very crowded and you would have a hard time finding a place to sit. Plenty of umbrellas to stay out of the sun if you wanted too. Great location. We will definitely go back there again. The property managers were amazing to work with."
