Awesome home. I would stay again and recommend this home to family and friends.

The only thing I would change is upgrading the beach carts. The 3 that are there and pretty old and beat up. Other than that it was perfect for my family.

Saffron sun was perfect for our large family group ranging from ages 6-76! There was enough room to spread out and sleep soundly; but also enough space to gather together in common areas/balconies etc. We all really enjoyed the front deck or crow's nest for AM coffee. The pool was perfect and we spent a lot of time grilling and relaxing in the back. The property is on a quiet road and the whole island seemed to adhere to the 10 PM noise curfew...very peaceful! We spent a lot of time across the street@ the public beach which had great amenities including breakfast and live music in eves, plus a great sundry-type shop. We used the free trolley quite a bit as traffic could be harrowing at times. We tried all of the beaches on the island. (Water@Coquina was clearest & calmest, Northernmost beach was great for boogie boarding/large waves.) Carts in the garage were great for toting our own fishing gear along with the umbrella/mat and chairs/sand toys etc that are available for use. Everything at the house was functional and just as pictured! Not a single issue with anything functionally and Bob was very quick to reply with any questions I emailed him. Walgreens/CVS and Publix are walking distance so you really don't need to bring much with you. Felt very safe with lots of regular families around-only wish we had more time to explore-so much to see on AMI!

FANTASTIC FAMILY VACATION
Stayed Apr 2019
This was the third year in a row that we have rented Saffron Sun for a family vacation for our children and grandchildren. As usual everything was perfect in a wonderful house across the street from a great beach with a terrific cafe for breakfasts and lunches. Bravo to Bungalow Bob for great service.

Awesome. Super clean. Elevator was so convenient for bringing in luggage. Loved the pool and all the balconies and having washer and dryer. Also so nice to have beach carts and umbrella, boogie boards, sand toys and beach chairs. That stuff takes up so much space in the car and for a 10 hour drive to Florida and it was sooooo nice not to have to pack it! Great neighborhood for bike rides and grocery store within walking distance. Owner was very nice and attentive. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

This was our first time to Anna Maria Island and will definitely not be our last! The house was perfect for our family of 8, the youngest being 17, so it takes a lot of space for us when we vacation. The elevator was a godsend! The garage was huge and had plenty of space for our mid-sized SUVs. There were plenty of beach and pool items, and the beach carts held everything we could possibly need for a day on the beach. The pool is bigger than the picture portrays. The kitchen was well-stocked, too. The roof-top screened porch was a wonderful place to end the day and watch the sunset.
The house is a short 5 minute walk to the public beach, but that is only because you have to wait for the cross-light at the intersection. It was not a problem for us at all! The same walk gets you to a trolley stop that goes up and down the island all day. The beach cafe and bar has wonderful food and drinks, and previous guest have left cafe souvenir cups that get you half-priced refills at the bar, so keep that in mind before buying one unless you just want to take one home. My biggest suggestion is that since this is a property that can sleep 8 adults, then the dining seating should also accommodate that number. There are only 6 chairs in the dining area, but it could easily fit 8. There is a pub-style table for 4 in the kitchen, but having 8 chairs at the dining table would be ideal to not split up the dinner party. We made it work by using 2 of the outdoor chairs from the porch, but they definitely were not the right height and regular dining chairs would have been more comfortable.
Overall, wonderful property in a great location with practically everything you need for a fun, relaxing week on one of the best beaches you could ask for.

Our stay in Anna Maria Island was so great and this rental property is great for a family or large group. The 4 bedrooms and 4 private baths made our stay so easy. Having the 3 decks and pool and grilling area was awesome and of course the elevator was great for carrying groceries and luggage. We definitely recommend and will rent again when vacationing in the area. The location to the beach is perfect, just one block across the street and your there!!

We loved this property! The house was wonderful, so beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well stocked with everything that you need to cook, however we took full advantage of the great restaurants on the island. The location of the house is great! It is right across from a public beach that has easy access and a great area to have a drink and watch the sunset. There were eight of us staying and the home is very large so you were able to have your own private space. My Mother-in-law was with us and we were worried about all of the stairs, but the lift was super helpful and made her stay very easy. I can't wait to go back!
