All around great place to stay!
“We loved our stay on Anna Maria Island! The condo was very conveniently located across the street from the public beach so we were able to enjoy the sun and make trips back whenever needed. There were plenty of chairs available to use which was also very nice. When not by the beach we spent time relaxing on the patio or in the pool. We stayed in Castnetter 6 which was perfect for the four of us. The condo was very clean, nicely decorated, and had all of the kitchen appliances and utensils we needed. We would definitely stay here again!”
Perfect place for our spring break
“Castnetter Beach Resort was a great place to stay. We stayed in unit number 5 which is a two bedroom two bath unit. It’s on the second floor and has a huge deck overlooking the pool and public beach area. The owners were on sight to greet us when we arrived and they are just the sweetest people. The place was immaculate and the updates were great. It is across from the public beach so it can get crowded, especially since we were here during spring break, but it didn’t bother us. We just walked down to the side and it was fine. It’s right in the middle of the island so it’s close to everything.”
Fun and sun at Anna Maria with grand kids
“We stayed here for 5 nights with our 2 grand kids and their parents. The location was great, just across the street from the beach. The unit was very clean and everything was working. The pool was a nice bonus as the 2 kids ages 18 months and 3 loved the size. it was also nice being so close to the grocery store.Its location is ideal. There were chairs and an umbrella available.”
Amazing Property and Amazing Owners
“Castnetter Beach Resort was perfect for our Family trip. Couldn’t have picked a better spot. I travel for a living and have stayed at some of the top resorts in the world and this was right up there. We stayed in Unit 6 and it had everything we needed and then some. huge deck on the back, beach and shopping right across the street and all the stores, shops and bars are either walking distance or a super close Uber ride.”
