Wonderful Experience!!

By: Trip Date: 2021-05-28
The house was perfect for our staycation. It was clean, well decorated, well stocked, and just as pictured. We had a great time and so glad we chose this home.

Great Clean Place!

We had a great time. Place was very clean and the salt water pool is a plus.Bring your own tissues, toilet paper, etc. but those are small things. The kitchen was well stocked with dish ware, etc. I would come back here again. Once again, very clean !!!!! Stay here, you will not be disappointed at all. Great location to all beaches. Its like you are in your own paradise.

Wonderful Oasis

Sunshine Dream was a perfect family rental for our recent trip to AMI with our 3 kids (6, 8, and 11). The house was spotless and sparkling when we arrived. The house was located in a lovely neighborhood where I felt safe walking around at any time of day/night. The house had everything you needed to enjoy the inside (cozy/comfy) and outside (great pool and patio!). The location is a 15 min drive to the beach and the house had all the necessities (pool towels, beach chairs, toys for the kids) to enjoy the area. Shopping at Walmart/many grocery markets is easy and convenient.

Things we enjoyed the most:
1. Robinson Preserve- make time to get there for a beautiful nature walk
2. Coquina Beach- easy with kids in tow, plenty of parking and changing rooms
3. Anna Maria Beaches- so many (and don't forget to stop over at the Donut Experiment)
4. Skinny's Place- don't miss out on this iconic burger joint
5. Mote Aquarium (for the smaller travelers)

While I was overall really satisfied, I did find it a bit of a hassle that the BASIC survival house stuff was very limited on arrival. Make sure you bring house essentials (toilet paper, paper towels, coffee filters-basket, soap, cooking spray, spices, shampoo/conditioner, hand soap, etc).

Beautiful home exactly as advertised

The house was well equipped with everything we needed. The pool was absolutely the highlight of the house.we spent a lot of time in the backyard because the traffic was terrible and parking was tough as well.

This house was absolutely perfect.

Wonderful visit

We stayed with our two teens and it was amazing.
We are looking to relocate to the area so wanted to stay somewhere in a subdivision setting and this was perfect.
I'm in real estate and this home was beautifully decorated and well taken care of, quite neighborhood and close to shopping and the beaches. My family loved the home and we plan on coming back prior to our move.

Sunshine dream was just that - a dream! It looked exactly like the listing. The pool was beautiful, and felt very private. Definitely recommend

Beautiful Home near the Beach

By: Trip Date: 2020-06-04
this is a quaint home in the middle of a quiet neighborhood which is just a short drive to the beaches. Beautifully decorated & comfortable home!
Pool is a huge asset to the home-great home for pets, too

Beautiful Vacation Rental

Loved it!

By: Trip Date: 2020-03-28
Sunshine Dreams was the perfect getaway for us! The beaches on Anna Maria were closed, but since we had a beautiful pool in our backyard, we were still able to enjoy the wonderful Florida weather! The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!

Fulfilled Sunshine Dreams

By: Trip Date: 2020-01-10
I loved being in the newly remodeled Sunshine Dreams home. I was there for 6-7 weeks and really enjoyed the location as well as the beautiful new pool and outside living areas. It was a great home and great location. Will be back next year!

Family Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2020-02-29
Our stay was wonderful. The house was great and the backyard setting was beautiful.
Having small kids there were a couple problems. 1 there was a lot of stuff that was breakable, yes it made for a nice setting, but a 2 year old likes to play with everything and we had to move alot of stuff to keep it from being damaged.
#2 the pool was really nice but the bottom finish was way to rough. It cut up the kids toes. If the pool could have been heated for a morning swim would have made for a nicer experience.
The area and setting far outweighed these issues. Not complaining, just giving some feedback.
As for checking in we found chip bags behind a nightstand and under the couch cushions. Not a big deal but may want to mention it to your cleaning crew.

Very nice home with an great pool and patio area.

The home was just renovated but with most home built in the 70's the master bathroom and kitchen are very small. The rest of the home are well appointed with plenty of space for 6 guests. The neighborhood is very quiet and most homes are well cared for.Easy access to Anna Maria Island and Holmes beach.Florida Dreams are great to work with and do everything to make the vacation a success.
