Heaven on Earth
5/5 Stayed Jul 2020
We could not have had a better time tucked away for a week at Tucked Away. We came to Anna Maria to escape the pandemic and escape we did. Our family of five had the most relaxing time at this beautiful home and found no reason to leave!
Every morning started by the canal with our coffee, looking for manatee and dolphins. During the days, we swam laps and lounged in the surprisingly large pool, and fished and kayaked off the dock. In the evenings, we played games or watched movies. There was enough room for us to spread out when we wanted to go read or take naps, but also plenty of communal space so we could spend time comfortably together. It was simply ideal.
The home is equipped with everything you can think of and is a short walk or bike ride to Pine Avenue or the beach. Bob was wonderful and so friendly. He made the check in process seamless. Importantly - specially at this time - the house was spotless and impeccably clean. We had come with our own cleaning supplies just in case, but did not have to use them. We felt very well taken care of and safe the the moment we crossed threshold.
We will absolutely return to Tucked Away and are already planning our next visit. Thank you Bob and team!

Best Vacation Ever
5/5 Stayed Jun 2020
We were worried about traveling during the Covid epidemic. But once we got to the house it was sparkling clean and steps had been taken to make sure it was disinfected. Our kids loved the pool, and the close proximity to the beach. We loved the layout of the home. The house felt very cozy with all the internal furnishings not normally found in a rental. Bob was a pleasure to work with. We are already planning our next trip back.

Perfect peaceful getaway
5/5 Stayed Jan 2020
Tucked Away is everything the other reviewers have said and more. It’s beautiful, well appointed, clean, and the location can’t be beat.. just a few short blocks to the gulf beaches, the bay and shops of the north end. It’s on a very quiet and peaceful little street and the lovely landscaping adds tremendous privacy and ambiance. We traveled with 4 young children and the house perfectly suited both the adults and children. The beach gear and beach cart were especially appreciated! Beds were very comfy too. The management was outstanding- Bob the manager went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed (assisting with baby gear rentals and grocery delivery, etc). Thank you again for a most wonderful trip! We can’t wait to come back!

Private oasis on AMI

Beautifully appointed home that exceeded our expectations. A large pool can be hard to find on the island, but this one was amazing! Bob was attentive and friendly.

We fall in love with Tucked Away. It became our home and we would have appreciated to stay even longer than a month. It's a beautiful cottage, very appealing and cosy. There are a lot of small items of decoration which makes the house very private. The kitchen is well equipped and high standard. The pool and the deck are just awesome, surrounded by a gorgeous vegetation. We enjoyed being at the pool, reading, in between doing a swim and hearing the birds chirping. The house is very well maintained by Bob. It was very clean when we moved in and Bob responded quickly to our needs. The location of the cottage is perfect. Walking distance to shops and restaurants at Pine Avenue 15 minutes., to the beach its even lesser, approx. 5 minutes. In the garage there is a beach cart fully equipped with umbrella and beach chairs.
We can highly recommend this listing.

The Tucked Away cottage is a treasure on Anna Maria Island! Having arrived in January from the cold and snowy northern US, the colorful and perfectly-manicured outdoor foliage surrounding the house creates the sense of stumbling upon an oasis. When we opened the front door, it was immediately obvious that the owner delights in hospitality! The lights were left on to welcome us, the table was set, a cake was setting on the countertop, everything was sparkling clean! The bed was like sleeping in a cloud! And the master bathroom was sheer luxury! Iris Ave is located on the northern part of the island, so it’s a very quiet neighborhood, without the bustle of storefronts and restaurants—yet it’s just a short car or bike ride to get to those places. The house is nestled with its back yard on the canal, and we took our raft out in the water for some lazy relaxing in the sunshine. For us, this place was perfect! Bob was a pleasure to work with, very attentive and he responded quickly when we had questions. I would highly recommend this listing!

We enjoyed our vacation at the "Tucked Away". Like its name states the place is close by to the beach, pine ave, gulf drive and all the "happening" places, at the same time it feels totally miles away from the hustle and bustle. The facility was clean, well lit with natural light, and all the needs were met. We spent most of our time by the pool as our little one didn't want to leave the hot tub. Service was great. Bob was very responsive to any request we had , and we had no issues during our week long stay. The housekeeping team came to fulfill our needs when we asked to make some adjustments to the room configuration. As we loved the place, we booked our next vacation at the tucked away before we checked out. That tells it all.

Peaceful & Comfortable Home

We enjoyed a week at Tucked Away. The home is nicely equipped and tastefully decorated. Upon arrival, the house was not only spotless, it was decorated for Christmas and the dining table was set. The outside grounds are beautiful, but we probably enjoyed the covered lanai the best. The seating by the dock and the pergola front porch were additional, different areas. In short, there’s something for everyone. We cooked in most of the time, but everything is nearby if you chose to venture out. We walked to the beach easily as well as the shops in Pine Ave.

Beautiful beach home
5/5 Stayed Oct 2018
Beautiful ground level pool home steps to the Gulf of Mexico. The owner and manager were great to work with setting up our reservation. When we arrived the spacious home was immaculate. The bedrooms were comfortable and well appointed. Can't say enough about our stay. We went to the beach every day and ate at some great local restaurants. Home is a short distance away from shopping on Pine Avenue. I would recommend this home any time!
