The Tarpon Tree House was amazing! For starters, it met my very high standards of cleanliness. It was the perfect size for our family of four. It was cozy, updated, and nicely decorated. It felt like home. The landscaping and yard were just as perfect. The outdoor shower was ideal after a day at the beach. There are nooks to relax in, all over the back yard. It's very private and peaceful as well. I loved that there was a garage to store our bikes and beach supplies. With that said, there were extra bikes on the property, any and all beach supplies, and the perfect beach wagon to tow it all. We didn't cook much, but they certainly had everything you would need if you chose to. The location is just as perfect. Each morning we rode our bikes to the beach/dock/breakfast. You are so close to all the charming restaurants, shops, the bay, and beaches. If you've never been to Anna Maria Island, you're missing out. This is the place to stay if you want to feel like a local. I honestly can't say enough good things about the house. Kate was very responsive as well. Absolutely loved everything about it...except for the part where we had to leave and go home. We will be back!

This little hideaway exceeded our expectations! It's cozy, yet still roomy, and impeccably kept both inside and out! Loved the decorations reminiscent of travels far and near, and the attention to details that made everything feel more homey. The garden is huge with a variety of nooks for a whole family to spread out or for individuals to find their own space. The jacuzzi, which I tend to avoid at hotels for hygienic reasons, was super clean and well-maintained with powerful and adjustable jets. I caught a crab off the dock and boiled it up for dinner. The house is with walking distance to both the bay and the gulf, and several restaurants and bars as well. To tell the truth, we had to drag ourselves away from the house in order to go experience other things. It really is an oasis for people looking to unwind! Kate answered every single email promptly - from general inquiries about the rental property to questions we had while we were there. No waiting around for hours or days for answers! I'm sitting in a Holiday Inn in Tallahassee writing this and wishing I was back at the Tarpon Treehouse! Sure, there's a bed, clean towels, and soap here, but it's sure not the personalized experience I just left behind! Tim and Kate sure know how to be the hosts with the most!

Our family of four had a very relaxing long weekend escape to Kate and Tim's home. We used the wagon to transport the beach chairs to the Gulf side beach, which was very convenient. We also walked to our favorite restaurant on the Island, The Waterfront. We arranged for Paddleboards to be delivered to the house so we could explore the canals right from the dock in the backyard.
