Amazing family rental close to the beach!

December 5, 2014

Perfect location to the beach, groceries and the free Island trolley. We just came back from our first visit to AMI and Villa Chez Shell was more then I expected! The house is extremely clean, bright and beautiful. The kitchen has everything you could ask for to enjoy your vacation. The bedrooms are large and easily accommodated our family of five. The backyard is a tropical paradise! My kids loved the pool and games room. The outdoor eating area made it easy to enjoy the surroundings (except on the few cooler days!). The Villa has everything you can think of for the pool and the beach. The cart allowed us to make one trip to the beach with everything the kids needed to enjoy the day there! There were plenty of sand toys, boogie boards, chairs and my youngest loved to fly the kites! My husband and kids enjoyed using the fishing rods to see what they could catch. They went to the local marine store and Shrimp was there preferred bait, which helped them catch two sharks, a stingray and two local fish (all within an hour!). Alex and Irina were excellent to deal with from the time we booked their Villa to answering any questions we had before our vacation and while there! If you are looking at other properties, time to stop! This one has everything you will need to enjoy the Island. A few must do's whole there... The Island Donut Shop, Two Scoops, Captain Kathe and pup pup (or Skipper) tour and her homemade Key Lime Pie, and for the freshest catch try Tide Tables at Market 48 in Cortez (AMAZING fish tacos!). Of course the Island trolley, it is free and perfect to hop on and off to explore the Island!!! We did not get to see and do everything on our list but will hopefully tackle that the next time we visit Villa Chez Shell and AMI! Thank you Alex and Irina for making your Villa a perfect vacation getaway!

Angela, we are thrilled that you stayed with us and look forward to welcoming you and your boys back!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

The villa is beautiful. We love the lanai and pool so much, it took us a while to visit the beach! We had a wonderful stay and are sad to fly home today. Thank you for sharing your home. ~ Becky and Steve, Kentucky (June 2014)

Our stay was wonderful. The design of the home was very visitor friendly. The inside was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The outside or pool area was even more impressive as the owners seem to cover all the amenities. Villa Chez Shell is centrally located to eateries, shopping and of course the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island. Can't wait to come back next year! ~ Brian, Kentucky (June 2014)

Wonderful family home! The owners were pleasant, helpful and kind. The house was nicely decorated and the pool, lanai and gameroom were well used by our family. We have 4 children, ages 5 to 13 and everyone was happy here. The beach supplies and lots of fluffy beach towels were also wonderful and appreciated. Coquina Beach rivaled the most beautiful Caribbean beaches I've been to, had soft sand and was perfect for shelling. We visited several beaches on our trip, including Siesta Key which was voted #1 beach in the US, but Coquina was voted to be the best by our whole family. This was a wonderful property and I wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you for sharing your home! ~ Johanna, Texas (June 2014)

Our family has enjoyed our stay at Villa Chez Shell. What a beautiful home. The pool was wonderful, enjoyed our privacy. The beach was beautiful & the sunsets were awesome. We cannot thank you enough. ~ Connie and Family, Michigan (May 2014)

Thank you so much for having us stay at beautiful villa! ~ Julia, Switzerland (May 2014)

We had a great stay! This was a great location to everything, especially the beach! Pool was awesome too! Loved the trolley - we never had to drive! We definitely will return! ~ Dee Dee, Michigan (Apr. 2014)

We had a wonderful stay - only wish is to have one more week here. The pool was perfect for our toddler boys & we spent many evenings having dinner poolside. The location of the Villa couldn't be better. ~ Christa & Family, Canada and Kentucky (Apr. 2014)

We have had two wonderful weeks. AMI is a beautiful place where you could relax. Your house is wonderful and a place you almost feel like home! Thank you very much! ~ Jonas, Sweden (Mar. 2014)

What a wonderful trip we have had! Love the Island and love Villa Chez Shell. We enjoyed the pool every day - sat by the pool every morning having coffee & listening to the waterfall. Thank you so much for everything. ~ Jane, Michigan (Mar. 2014)

It was a great trip...We really loved AMI and Villa Chez Shell. ~ Brian and Bonnie, Canada (Mar. 2014)

Everything has been great. We are happy that we are staying at such an awesome place. Such a fun time had by all. Location is awesome. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your place. ~Hilaurie, Massachusetts (Feb. 2014)

5 stars out of 5. This place is just beautiful and well maintained. We stayed at Villa Chez Shell with a group of 6 adults. Everything we needed was provided (well equipped kitchen, bath towels, extra linen etc). Beaches and neighborhood are perfectly fine. Grocery store and Pharmacy are just a 5 minutes walk away. Complimentary trolley shuttle is 3 minutes away. Alex and Irina are wonderful hosts. They followed up the second day if everything is fine or if we are in need of anything. As a surprise we even got a nice cookbook as a gift from them when we arrived. We would love to stay there again some day and definitely recommend this place. ~Andrea, Germany (Jan. 2014)

We had a lovely stay at Villa Chez Shell in January 2014 and recommend it as a wonderful place for a great holiday. ~Kate, Austria (Jan. 2014)

We really enjoyed our time in Villa Chez. It is such a lovely place to spend time and relax. It was a pleasure to be inside the beautiful decorated house and everything was so clean and tidy. The heated pool and outside area was just outstanding. Lots of fun even on the colder evenings. And also the game room was terrific. Our daughter loved to play there. And we had lots of ping pong games going on also :o) We were amazed that it was possible to rent souch a great place! The owners are so nice and easy to communicate with. ~Sara, Denmark (Jan. 2014)

Fabulous! Our stay at Villa Chez Shell was awesome! The villa is located a short walk from the beach. It is very easy to get around the island with the free trolley. The villa is very well equipped, the kitchen is spacious, heated pool is very private and the game room has entertained children. The owners are lovely and make sure to make our stay enjoyable. This is really a place that I recommend to all. ~Annie, Canada (Dec. 2013)

The place has been a wonderful time. We have enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely be ready to return in the future. The game room is perfect for the kids. The outdoor area is a dream for grilling and just hanging out poolside. The heated pool is all I expected. The pool worked wonderful during our stay despite the cooler than normal temps we've had the water temp was perfect. Your photos don't do the place justice. Found everything we needed in the kitchen. Plenty for our group of 7. Plenty of pool toys, chairs....We loved the place!! ~Jared & Amanda, Missouri (Dec. 2013)

Beautiful property and convenient location. The interior seemed newly remodeled and newly redecorated. It was bright and airy with tastefully put together decor (beach, shells). The owners (or their decorator) seemed to have put a lot of thought into making everything look relaxing, crisp and welcoming. The pool, with the lovely swim-up tiki bar, was relaxing and I loved the landscaping around it. While there are next door neighbors, you literally couldn't see the other properties because the pool is surrounded by tropical plants and trees. This location is so perfect because it's only a couple of blocks to Holmes Beach (which I would argue is the best stretch of sand on AMI) and the Beach Cafe and also only a couple of blocks to the grocery store (Publix) and drug store (CVS). We hope to return next year! ~ Jennifer, Illinois (Nov. 2013)

Everyone is loving it! It really is a beautiful place. ~ Leena, California (Nov. 2013)

I believe this particular property was recently renovated; everything was clean and brand new which was a huge plus. We couldn't believe how nice the pool area was.. completely isolated from the neighbors by tropical flowers and plants. The zero gravity chairs are great to nap in too! We ate every meal at the outdoor covered patio/sitting/dining area.. it was too pretty not to, check out the pictures to see what I mean. All in all it was a very impressive beautiful house, we really got lucky. You can tell the owners/decorators really have an eye for detail. Next year we will come with friends, and try to stay even longer. ~ Rob, Virginia (Oct. 2013)

5 stars all the way! Alex is a wonderful person to deal with and was excellent in communicating and making sure all the requests I had were followed through. The villa was very authentic, making it a very pleasant to stay. It looks better and bigger than showed in the pictures. It is like staying at your own vacation house. Great location as well, within 5 minutes walk to the beach. The backyard private pool was great. Surrounded by palm trees, it feels and looks like your own private tropical garden. We enjoyed the swim up tiki table for our late night drinks. ~ Adrian, Florida (Oct. 2013)

We loved our stay at Villa Chez Shell. ~ Vickie, Oklahoma (Sept. 2013)

I'm happy to say that we loved Villa Chez Shell! ~Yarelys, Florida (Sept. 2013)

The house is perfect. Nice and comfortable rooms. Wide spaces. Nice pool. Very well maintained kitchen appliances. Very clean. We would like to come back. ~Annalisa, Italy (Aug. 2013)
