Accommodations include a queen size bed in one bedroom, and 2 single beds in the other. All three beds have new mattresses. The bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans. A full kitchen with dishware, cookware, and utensils, is included for your convenience. Bed linens, bath linens and beach towels and other necessities are provided for your care-free holiday. Cable TV, wireless internet access, stereo CD/MP3-ready is available in the Living Room for entertainment while not at the beach.

The quaint Anna Maria island is the perfect get-away destination to relax. The sugar-white, powder-soft beaches are a sight to behold, as is the tranquil, clear turquoise water. The Gulf water averages 84 degrees year-round. Dolphins can often be seen playing. Activities include hiking, biking, fishing, deep sea fishing, jet skiing, sail boating, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and wind surfing.

This cottage has a bit of Florida history attached. The cottage was barged over from Egmont Key after WWII in the 1950's to 1960's. It served as officers headquarters on the Egmont Key as Egmont proved strategic to protecting the Tampa Port area during wartime. Many years after the barge ride to Anna Marie Island, the interior of the cottage was totally renovated in 2009 The floor plan was opened up in a desirable preferred way, but in keeping with the 'old Florida' look and feel.

There are golf courses on the island, and 45 more courses within a 30 minute drive. There is a free bus service to get around the island, but for your convenience, the Salt Box is only a short walk to island restaurants and a small grocery/deli.

The area is perfect for Biking, Golf, Shuffleboard, Amusement Parks, Fishing, Birding, Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Restaurants, Sightseeing, Swimming, Snorkeling/Diving, Boating, Water-skiing, Surfing, Windsurfing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just back from our wonderful stay at your sweet cottage. There wasn't anything we needed that was not already provided. We had a wonderful week, and loved your cozy and comfortable decor. We never even went to the beach side because of the wonderful new enlarged sand beach on the bay.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was awesome. Loved the location. Had everything we needed, even a cooler, beach chairs and umbrellas. Very clean and neat. Had a really relaxing time with beautiful weather. Would recommend it to anyone with 4 people or less. There were 2 of us and it was perfect. The Sandbar, The Waterfront, Lobstah's are good places to eat. The free trolley is such a nice service and gets you anywhere you want to go on the island. But, the weather is so beautiful we walked at least 30 miles while we were there. Owner is great to work with. Very helpful.

Three Years Running-our Favorite Spot!

  • 5 of 5
We have visited the Saltbox three times and we absolutely love it! In many senses it feels like our second home. You want for absolutely nothing; the cottage has it all. It is steps to the trolley, the beaches and still tucked back in a quiet spot for when you need down time. The open concept and high efficency washer and dryer on site makes it feel like you are at home. Lynn, the owner, is extremely quick to respond to questions and makes your vacation go as smoothly as possible. This truly is the hidden jewel of the island.

A "Perfect" stay in a quintessential beach town!

This little bungalow was certainly perfect...had all the "must have" amenities such as washer/dryer, wifi, beach supplies and basic kitchen items...plentiful parking...on a very quiet lot. I especially enjoyed the location of the bungalow to all the "happenings" on Anna Maria's north end of the island...as we could walk to dinner @ the Waterfront restaurant and walked to the city pier along the bay and then onto the many quaint shops on Pine Avenue. If you want to get away from the hustle & bustle of life...please stay @ the north end of Anna Maria...you will cherish this visit!

Enjoy!!!

A Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a charmed week at this very cute, clean, well furnished historic cottage. 200 steps from the bay side of the island and a wonderful beach right beside the City Pier. We rented bikes and it was a 4 minute bike ride to the Sandbar Restaurant and a stunning gulf side beach with warm water and wonderful waves. This place is charmed. The equipment is new ( washer, dryer, fridge, stove, microwave, TV), the ice fresh and cold for drinks and the location could not be better. The bathroom with shower is small but clean and efficent. Everything else is surprisingly spacious for 2 people given that its an historic cottage. A family of 4 could feel comfortable as well.

Here is one tip - drive back across to the mainland on the bridge to Cortez, eat lunch at Star Fish Company ( grouper!!!) and buy some shrimp ( ours was fresh from Fort Myers). Then stop at the well stocked Publix on the way back and pick up some steak and a small bag of charcoal. Then for dinner you can do steak and shrimp on the small BBQ in the backyard, enjoy a glass of wine and then go watch the sun set.

This is not a super luxury cottagve but it is a truly relaxing and country "old Florida" experience. It is a "luxury" setting in a cottage. Hard to describe but you will understand if you visit. If you are into kayaking or fishing or surfing it would be an amazing location. Golf is less then 30 minutes away in Bradenton. Oh, don't forget to try the free public transit trolley buses.

Perfect cottage, perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place to stay on the most amazing island of AMI! Everything about the cottage is perfect - from booking with Lynn to the location. It is on the peaceful north end of AMI and close to everything. We rented bikes around the corner and rode them everywhere. The living room is very cozy and the kitchen is the perfect size. There was just two of us staying in the cottage, but we could have fit 4 very comfortably. The beds are extremely comfortable. It was a great place to come "home" to every evening after spending and amazing time on the beautiful beaches of AMI!
