The property is perfectly located on Bean Point. The path toward the beach offers you multiple directions to reach the water. We enjoyed the short walk daily. They had plenty of beach chairs, a cooler, and two different carts available at the house. There is also an outdoor shower right by the laundry room. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked all our meals there. They even leave two propane bottles for the grill, just another example of the personal touch this company offers. Word of caution: the upstairs bedroom (master) does not have a door to it which means the master bath is open to everything as well. It was fine for us, but might not work for everyone. WiFi is also spotty upstairs. Would definitely book with this company again!
Million dollar view! 5 STARS!
The property has a gorgeous view from the patio and the deck outside the master bedroom - direct to the beach and stellar sunsets. Sand dunes are the only thing separating the house from the beach. The short walk to the beach provides just the right distance for privacy in the house from the people on the beach. Management of the property was very attentive to the guest. Quiet northern end of Anna Maria Island, nearly at Bean Point. Short drive to restaurants and attractions. Quiet. Relaxing. 12/18
So much beauty and wildlife! 5 Stars. We had a wonderful time at Heavenly Sunset! This area afforded us pelican, dolphin, tortoise, and manatee sightings (and countless other birds). I loved the fact that the house is very comfortable and well appointed, rarely do our travels lead us to beds as comfortable as those at home. My favorite part was waking up to the beautiful view of beach and sea oats. The house was so close to everything! Restaurants, rentals, and activities were all very close (bike or golf cart is best). Our favorite lunch place was Poppo's Taqueria and for dinner, the Waterfront- excellent food, ( the Sandbar is good, and seemed like "the happening place"). The jaunt to the water is little leg-stretching, but there is a cart to help out. The house is very close to the top (Bean Point) and following the path, you suddenly see nearly 360 degrees of beach, which is truly breathtaking- particularly at sunset. 7/9/2018
Great Location 5 stars We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beach front home! Yes, as others have mentioned, it is a bit of a walk to the water but you still have the beach front location at Bean Point & have a shorter stroll than those that don't get to enjoy this beach front view. The kitchen was appropriately stocked with pots, pans, dishes etc. (For future renters, the ice maker does not work so be sure to add ice to your grocery list!) AC worked great. The furniture & home has been updated, although the pictures don't reflect it. The water at this location of Anna Maria is beautiful & we saw manatees swimmming with us, daily. I would definitely recommend it & the bonus was that we were able to bring our dog & jet skis with us (although dogs are not permitted on the Beach. July 15, 2017. They are welcomed on the Manatee Causeway and in plenty on the outdoor seated restaurants.
This place was perfect for our family! Parents had an upstairs retreat from the children! Upstairs there's one master bedroom suite complete with a unique "waterfall" bathtub and separate shower. Downstairs is two bedrooms and a roomy kitchen. Screened in patio is HUGE! We actually bought a child pool and set it up back there for our kids to splash around when we werent on the beach. There is a private trail behind the house that leads directly to a beautiful beach. We have already made our plans for next year to stay here.Brenda S.4/5/17
If you read my prior review of this property you will see that it needed work.Well the owners have done a good job. Everything that was in need of improvement was done. I did not give this a 5 star because when compared to some of the neighboring homes it is not as chic. However for our needs and the location it might as well as been a 5 star home.The management is very reponsive and eay to work with. Lisa H 1/27/17
We had a lovely time! The beach was beautiful. The house could use a little TLC to fix some cosmetic issues, other than that, the house was perfect for our vacation. Laura Z
We had a wonderful week at "Heavenly Sunset". This is surely a piece of heaven on earth!
