“home away from home paradise”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We live on the Florida east coast and wanted a caribbean vacation feel without having to get on a plane or cruise and I'm so glad I took the countless hours on-line to find this GEM tucked away on Anna Marie Island. Just talking to the owners Christy and Chuck, I knew I was booking the perfect place. The nicest people you could ever meet!!! They have made anyone who stays with them feel like they never left home. everything you might reach for at home - they have thought of it! weather its a kitchen item,laundry necessity,beach chairs and boogie boards/toys,beach towels books/movies/games,ITS ALL THERE!! And if it isn't , they were always easy to find around the villas( keeping the gardens beautifully manicured) to just ask and they did they're best to get what ever it was you needed!!!
We will be going back over to the island again and Island Garden Villas will be the one and only place we will be staying!!!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 11 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The villas were beautiful, clean, very quiet, and peaceful. The gardens were amazing, especially when lit up at night! It was very nice having everything you needed for the beach and having a nice beach path across the road. We were also surprised to see that a supply of books, movies, and games were available in the villa for use. The owners are fabulous and very helpful. The island itself is a very beautiful, clean, and family friendly!

“Delightful accommodations in an incredibly beautiful and intimate tropical garden.”
Reviewed 29 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have stayed at GBV for the past two years and are scheduled for a third. Our villa is very comfortable and sufficiently appointed. The gardens are spectacular, serene and cozy. We love that the beach is located just across the street. You'll find that the caretakers, Christy and Chuck are just incredible.

We go every year, sometimes twice a year and just love it. Very relaxing, very green with beautiful surrounding plants and orchards. Beautiful courtyard and even the laundry room is welcoming. Directly across from the beach. And "Blackie The Cat" will welcome you.
The owners are a delight to know. Can't wait until May to go back. See ya soon Christie.
