My family (husband and 1 1/2 year old), stayed here with friends who have a 2 1/2 year old. We had a blast. The house is so well equipped that we lacked for nothing. There is a Publix grocery store across the street which made it very convenient to grocery shop. Walking distance to the beach...which made it easy!
Having 2 families staying a week, the 2 master bedrooms were perfect (and beautiful)! The toddler boys shared the 3rd bedroom and it worked out perfectly. One of our favorite feature of the house was that the living space was upstairs, so when the kids went to bed at night we could be downstairs on the lanai, have some drinks, and not disturb the kids. We also loved the 5'oclock clock on the lanai...perfect for the setting!
The privacy of the backyard is something we were not expecting. Perfect morning and early afternoon sun and plenty of shade once the sun becomes a little intense. The kids loved "hunting lizards" in the backyard, which you can see them doing in a picture below. ☺
This trip we just relaxed most of the time, but did eat out at Eat Here...it was fantastic and a must do! They catered to the kids (fruit plates, make your own pizzas) and the food was delicious.
We cannot wait to return!
We stayed at Villa Chez Shell the first week of May and thoroughly enjoyed our week. Great pool in a very private and quite backyard. 5 minute walk to a spectacular beach. Everything we needed for the beach was provided. House was clean and nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable and the ensuite bathrooms were modern. We would recommend this vacation house and would definitely stay there again.
We returned yesterday from a week long vacation at Villa Chez Shell. Alex and Irina have thought of everything for your stay. This is, by far the most well equipped rental I have ever stayed in. Having everything at the house was such a blessing, our only worry was what beach are we going to visit.
If you are looking for the perfect rental on Anna Maria Island, look no further. You will not be disappointed!
