LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. My family has been vacationing on Anna Maria Island for 25+ years during spring break. With our kids grown, this was the first year we stayed 3 months avoiding the brutal Ohio winter. What first drew us to COZY CABANA-EAST was the location. Central to the action, yet neighborhood feeling, we could walk or ride bikes to so many of our favorite places. If walking or riding a bike is not your thing, no problem, the trolley stop is just a few steps away which rotates the complete island.
The AMENITIES with this rental are nothing short of the “BEST OF EVERYTHING”. We brought with us an entire box of essential kitchen items because so many rental properties skimp on knives, cook wear, and other utensils. Not COZY CABANA-EAST, we had everything we needed within the cupboards and drawers. The pots & pans, knives, glasses and plates are high quality. In the spacious garage secured with automatic door opener was the washer and dryer, beach wagon, beach chairs and boogie board. There are more than enough beach towels for the entire family. We added a few personal items to the garage like bikes, surf board, kayak, and umbrella and still had plenty of room and felt our items were safe and secure during our stay. The back yard is ideal for outside living. Private fence surrounds the well landscaped back yard laid out with propane grill, umbrella table and chairs, pool, and 2 lounge chairs for sunbathing. We spent mornings outside enjoying coffee, afternoon dips in the pool and evening cocktails sitting by the pool.
The STYLE of the rental is beach casual. The wall colors and decor are contemporary yet cozy, fresh and pleasing to the eye. Professionally decorated the style of the kitchen and baths are up to date with granite, tile, stainless, and soft close cabinetry.
The COMFORT of the beds are better than my own back home, making this vacation more costly since I'll be replacing our mattress as soon as we return home. :) The sheets, towels, and pillows are again high quality making for a great night’s sleep. The furniture is stylish, comfy and durable.
We love Anna Marie Island and plan on returning again to the COZY CABANA for another winter in 2016. Tuck and Kristen are wonderful owners corresponding and helpful if the need should arise. I would recommend this property to you for your next getaway or family vacation. Rated 5 STARS and A+++++
