Check-in was a smooth and quick process, property management was extremely nice.... House was exactly as described, everything you need for a relaxing week away was provided! Short walk to the beautiful beach, would definitely stay again!!! 5 stars 8/7/2019
5 Stars We had an amazing stay!!! Perfect location, everyone loved the pool, perfect for a large family or group <3
The house was perfect for our three generations to stay together for the week. Kitchen well appointed with cookware and dishes. Master suite was very nice and we LOVED the backyard with outdoor kitchen and bathroom by the private pool. Red tide arrived at AMI on the same day we arrived so pool time saved the week for us! Rental company was awesomely responsive - handled a request in less than an hour after we called! Great location mid-island with very short stroll to beach access! Would return to this house again!
We really enjoyed our stay. Nice big rooms and nice pool. Had everything that we needed. When we arrived some lights were out and there was no hairdryer but i contacted Doug and he came over with a hairdryer and replaced all the light bulbs! I was very pleased with the house and the rental management. This house is also very close to the beach. When looking at the map it looked a lot further than it actually is. Very easy walk. I would stay here again. July 2018
This house was beautiful and immaculate! My family and I enjoyed are time, and loved the beach.

The house was spacious and perfect for our large group. The kitchen was furnished with everything we needed for cooking and the patio/grill was furnished beautifully as well. Wonderful vacation.Michelle R 6/24/17
We stayed at Carissa Villa property for 10 days in May of 2017. This is a beautiful, three story townhome with private pool and within 5 min walking distance to Holmes Beach. Check in and departure process really easy in the nearby realty office. The house was very clean, everything as advertised. We loved having 3 stories to spread apart, it never felt crowded with 8 people staying, 3 of them being children. The pool, restroom/shower, sink, mini fridge on the lower level, full kitchen and 2 bedrooms on 2nd floor, and master suite with huge bathroom up on the third floor. Washer and dryer also available on 3rd floor. Couple things to note: we couldn't find a hair dryer (they should have at least one available), there are only 4 tablespoons, but plenty of other utensils, and it would be nice to have more than 1 beach chair available for use. Just to note, they did provide plenty of beach towels/beach toys for use. Yes, I would stay here again and will recommend this property to my friends. We loved it!Olga K 6/2/17
We had a fantastic time. The only issue would be the tile floor to the pool gets very slick. We had a minor accident from slipping, resulting in a badly cut foot. However....we'd stay here again in a heartbeat! Christ B 4/1/17

We stayed on AMI the last week of December. Our house had an elevator which we used as one of our party is in a wheel chair. The house was within walking distance to town and the beach so we didn't need to get in the car all the time. The house had a master suite on the 3rd floor which was used by my sister-in-law, husband and child while we took the 2 bedrooms on the 2nd. It was very comfortable for 2 sets of parents and 2 children. Swimming pool was a nice touch with its own outside kitchen, bath and shower!

Our family of 7 enjoyed this well kept home, we loved the private pool, grill and elevator. Also, a short walk to beautiful beaches, restaurants and shops. About 1 hour from Tampa airport, Busch Gardens and not too much futher to Disney.

This was our 3rd year at Carissa Villa 201 and we have already booked for next year. Everything about the house is perfect, from the house itself to the location to working through aMI Coastal Cottages.
What stands out the most is that "it feels like home". It is warm and welcoming.
The only thing I would change is that we would never have to leave. We have been gone 2 days and are already counting the days until next year.
