Great vacation

By: Trip Date: 2019-12-20
Overall the rental was great. Although the One thing that could be improved is the carpet condition. It was horrible and needs replacement.

Quiet and Relaxing

By: Trip Date: 2019-12-02
We had a nice time. It was convenient to various activities. Quiet and relaxing. The property was taken care. The company was organized and pleasant to deal with. Some minor things needed to be fixed on the property but overall it was very nice.

A great place for a perfect stay. The apartment is minutes from the fantastic beach 7 miles of sand and the warm gulf waters. We have holidayed in Anna Maria for the last 10 years and can honestly say this is the best spot.

Relaxing Getaway

By: Trip Date: 2019-05-13
Gorgeous location, very close to the beach, quiet and quaint, well decorated. We took our own bikes and loved it! It was such a good get away and much needed. I loved the balcony, we used it every day. Glad to have laundry at the house. Thankful for towels and a welcome kit! We used it for 2 of the restaurants and loved them. Little things like detergent was provided which can be commonly forgotten. My only complaint is when we arrived we found hair in the shower which for the cleaning fee should absolutely not have happened. For such a small rental the cleaning fee could be much lower.

Fantastic Location

By: Trip Date: 2019-04-04
This unit hit all of our must haves: walk to the beach easily, very, very clean, large deck area for eating meals outside, easy to book and check in.

The carpet has stains and the bathroom needs some caulk, but for the money, it was great for us.

Chilly but great!

By: Trip Date: 2019-01-19
The upper level was very nice. It was alittle outdated but we are older (mid 50)
So it was fine. We enjoyed sitting on porch watching the ocean. Weather was windy and chilly but we enjoyed getting away!
Hope to come back to the area again!

Beautiful rental and very cozy

By: Trip Date: 2018-12-18
Location was great and the local food was excellent. The weather was terrible but we made the best of it. Would recommend to any couples. Would like to come back when it’s warm. Suggest you bring your own toilet paper as we ran out after 2 days. No salt, pepper or sugar. Close to the beach!

Great condo with flair and charm

By: Trip Date: 2018-11-05
We stayed 10 days in that beautiful condo, making us like feeling at home.
This well equipped, clean and cosy home is perfect for 2 people. The location is awesome and the very nice beach is just 2 minutes to walk.
We do 100% recommend this condo! Will come back again :-))

Great Location & Property | Overall Great Experience

By: Trip Date: 2018-08-25
We stayed at Beach Dream "B" during August 25-31, 2018. We had an excellent experience. The first thing that we noticed is that the property is very well maintained. The inside of the unit was VERY clean and in excellent condition. Even the bathroom was very clean and bright. The place definitely has the BEACH feel. The paint colors were great. Almost forgot....the King-Size bed was awesome. I also have to say that I rarely sleep well on the pillows at ANY place where we stay. These were perfect. Not too flat, not too poofy. Slept great. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook. Kitchen was very clean and even the microwave was spotless. The front porch was awesome. We had plenty of room and didn't feel "Claustro" like we do in a hotel room. The walk to the beach took all of 1-1/2 minutes. The Manager of the property was GREAT. Any directions that they needed were right there. Everything from Restaurant ideas to How To use the remote on the really nice Big flat screen TV. The also had Cable with a lot of premium channels, as well as a DVD and even a VCR player! Washer and dryer were downstairs and easy to get to. The inside plantation shutters were really nice. My wife and I commented on the fact that someone spent some money on those! We have never rented a Condo before but this was a great experience, especially for our first time. Florida Dreams does an excellent job and we were totally satisfied.

Close to beach

By: Trip Date: 2018-08-02
Unit was in a great location but needs some cosmetic work: carpet is stained, bathroom needs to be cleaned better-mold around tub, gutter coming off roof, year in downstairs screen and outside needs to be painted.

Very Good Experience

By: Trip Date: 2018-07-06
Great experience. FL Dreams Realty really has it all together. This was so very easy booking and they even had the light on for me when I arrived which was a good thing since I didn't get in until 1AM due to flight delays.

AM I... my HaPpY place

By: Trip Date: 2018-04-07
Great location on a wonderful beach.

Want to stay here again next year

By: Trip Date: 2018-02-01
This was my pick for our purposes: near beach (half a block), second floor porch for view and feel of the air, living area is spacious and feels like a home (good art on walls). We just liked everything. Please let me know the renovation schedule. We would like to rent next year.

Great location

By: Trip Date: 2018-01-25
Location was 400 ft from the beach, close enough to reasturants to walk. Size was fine for 2 people, attractive and overall cleanliness was good. Tub/shower left something to be desired. Could have been in better shape and cleaner. But I would go back.

Loved it !

By: Trip Date: 2018-01-07
We enjoyed our stay at Beach Dreams B and would love to see it stay a 1 bedroom rental, the bathroom could use a lift but it's hard to find a nice 1 bedroom place and not everyone has a need for a bigger place.

The perfect place for 2

By: Trip Date: 2017-11-01
My wife and I spent our 25th wedding anniversary here and we were more than pleased. It was so perfect for our trip and all that we needed. It was clean, nothing went wrong or was broke. It did not disappoint. The location is awesome as well.


By: Trip Date: 2017-08-13
Everything was really nice. Just needed a couple minor repairs other then that it was beautiful and you can see the water from the house and it's a short walk to the water. Also at the end if the street to the right they have a trollie pick up if you don't want to drive.

Dream Beach B

By: Trip Date: 2017-07-12
We loved our stay in at the Dream Beach B apartment. The location was just a short walk to the beach. We liked that the beach was clean and not crowded. The apartment was extremely clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Management made it easy to check in and out. The perfect beach get away!

2nd Stay as Lovely as 1st

By: Trip Date: 2017-06-29
As we had a great experience at this property last year, we decided to return for another vacation. We had a great stay - again! 3 doors from the best spot along the beach on a quiet street. We're hoping for a 3rd stay in the near future!

Great place to stay!

By: Trip Date: 2017-05-26
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would gladly stay here again. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable rooms, and a quiet neighborhood close to the beach.

A vacation in paradise

A Home away from Home in Paradise

A perfect little place close to the beach

By: Trip Date: 2017-03-05
We arrived at sunset on our first day. There is a beautidul view of the skyline from the porch.
Bed is kingsize and comfortable. New bathroom, just as clean as a pin. The kitchen is small but quite adequate for 2 people. We spend our time walking on the beach, swimming, and painting and knitting. It was great. I would rent this place again in a minute.

Beach Dreams B February 2017

By: Trip Date: 2017-02-04
We had beautiful weather, lots of walking, beach time and bicycling. The property was comfortable, everything that we needed was provided and the bed was very comfortable. Clean and well kept and the location was perfect. We enjoyed the small shops at eating at the Swordfish Grill and the Freckled Fin.

Beach Dream Get a Way

By: Trip Date: 2017-01-28
We had a wonderful time! the house was perfect for the 2 of us. 5 houses from the beach. The island was great! Hoping to return next year!

Beach Dream B otherwise known as Paradise

By: Trip Date: 2016-10-12
Wow, what a lovely place to spend some vacation time. Extremely comfortable, very well equipped & perfectly located (nice quiet neighbourhood). It would be impossible to find any downside. Particularly enjoyed the spacious deck. I do hope it will still be available in 2017. Florida Dreams Realty of AMI inc. were very helpful, the rental was absolutely spotless on arrival & they made sure we had everything we needed. Didn't want to leave when our vacation came to an end.

Rocinante Ramblings

By: Trip Date: 2016-09-26
For my Anna Maria Island vacation, I stayed in Holmes Beach at Beach Dream B on 75th Street, just a few houses down from the beach. The place was recently renovated, I think, and very clean and commodious for a single or a couple.

The one problem I had was that the door code I received via eMail only worked once. I had to call the Agency to get a new code.

Good Time

By: Trip Date: 2016-06-15
really enjoyed the time we spent there, quiet area and nice breeze from the gulf. Need a new beach umbrella.


By: Trip Date: 2016-05-01
the best words to describe this total experience is...pristine (inside &outside), effortless, and truthful from description and pictures. We had no issues with anything, the real estate company was impeccable. I have never had such a great experience.
thank you so much.

Just Perfect!

By: Trip Date: 2016-04-24
This beach cottage is better than advertised! It was not fancy but instead a perfect beach cottage with a great terrace with lovely warm breezes.


By: Trip Date: 2016-04-16
The rental was very nice, quite, close to the beach. The only issue we had was that the sheets were to small for the bed. Everything you would need was there. We like the homey feel of the area.

Home away from home

By: Trip Date: 2016-03-31
Perfect accomodation for a couple .Close to beach and trolley bus on doorstep giving easy access in both directions of island

Best Little Beach House

By: Trip Date: 2016-03-16
Only 3 steps from the beach on a quiet little street, this beach house was perfect. The decor was fresh and beautiful as shown in the photos. The well-stocked kitchen allowed us to have quiet meals when we didn't feel like going out. We will definitely recommend to friends and would love to stay again.

Great place, perfect location

By: Trip Date: 2016-03-10
We had a great time on Anna Maria Island! This rental was very close to a beautiful beach and in a quiet neighborhood. It was easy to take the island trolley to Anna Maria - and we also could walk a mile up the beach to get there as well. The rental was clean and very comfortable. Location was great, and island was wonderful.

Six houses from the beach. Cute, clean, and fun!

Beach House Vacation
