Working with Chris was effortless and the best vacation rental experience. He welcomes you into his home that is stocked with any and everything you could possibly need. It has an open airy concept and everything one would want in a beach house. Chris does an amazing job of anticipating your needs and has everything clearly labeled. The house is just a short walk across the road to the gulf for a breathtaking sunset experience. If your not feeling like the beach the screened in pool is perfect. The island has lots to offer for dinning/ shopping and relaxing. Chris even called us a few days early to let us know the house was vacant and we were able to come a few days earlier, needless to say we jumped at the opportunity. We we absolutely be back to rent again from Chris and the So family.

“This is no lemon!!”

We have been home for a couple weeks now and really want to return! . This was our first stay on Anna Maria Island and we could not have made a better decision about where we stayed! The Lemon cottage is exactly as Chris presents it in his website and pictures. We loved the house, especially the pool and lanai. We used the grill often to prepare our fresh caught fish. The house is so well equipped that one need only arrive with the key code and start enjoying life on AMI. It was only a short walk to the free trolley stop and only a little farther to the beach. I don't think Chris has forgotten anything as he set up this vacation rental. I loved swimming in the pool every afternoon and smelling the grapefruit tree which was in bloom. This was a perfect three week vacation from our Wisconsin winter. We look forward to going back to the Lemon cottage next year.

We recently returned from our second visit at Lemon Cottage. We had a wonderful time. The cottage is lovely, homey, comfortable, organized and has pretty well everything you'd ever need. We love the pool and the lanai, and the layout of the cottage is great for a family with kids.
The owner is great to deal with,,,very friendly, professional and prompt.
The only negative I could mention is that some of the beach toys were broken and the kids were a little disappointed....but that's a pretty minor thing overall.
We love Anna Maria Island and the surrounding area and hope to return to Lemon Cottage again in the future.

This is our 3rd stay at Lemon cottage, 3 consecutive years in a row, and our 4th stay at Chris & family's rentals. It is our 6th year staying on Anna Maria at the end of Sept. Once again everything is great about Lemon cottage, now we think of it almost as our own cottage or timeshare! lol. We love everything we have mentioned previously, the porch & lanai, the amenities and location, and Chris' attention to his guests. I cant see any reason why we wont make 2016 our 4th Sept to stay at Lemon. Highly recommended by our family...we love it. Thanks again Chris and family

Our first experience of holiday rentals and would highly recommend the Lemon Cottage and Anna Maria Island. This property is in a peaceful setting but close to the beach and restaurant and having the pool to come home to was a real bonus, with the lanai prevented the mozzies outside in the evening. The Lemon was decorated with the attention to detail that made it feel like you were a guest in someone's home rather than a clinical rental property. We've been back 3 days and still can't think of anything negative to say. Big thanks to the owner Chris and his family.
