THERE IS SIMPLY NO OTHER PLACE LIKE IT ON THE ISLAND!!! Put on your FLIP-FLOPS!

Our family has lovingly restored this HISTORIC 1939 FISHING CAMP located on beautiful Sarasota Bay. You'll be surrounded by water living on the narrowest point of Anna Maria Island. The BEACH IS LESS THAN 1 BLOCK AWAY!

These cottages were built by a former navy man and published boat designer, Bruce Crandal. Choose between the three unique cottages or rent them all for a family reunion. We know you'll fall in love!

Located at 115 SOUTH 7TH STREET, the cottages have a very private yard which extends out into the bay, giving expansive unobstructed views of the historic clock tower and pier, the sailboat harbor, draw bridge, and the skyline of Sarasota. The large dock can easily accommodate two boats, and is great for fishing, or just watching the boats go by.

IT'S ALL ABOUT SLOWING DOWN TO ISLAND TIME...

Start your days with a cup of coffee on your private front porch watching the sailboats in the bay, then try your luck fishing off the dock for grouper, snook, or reds. Set a crab trap for dinner later. Or just watch the Manatee swim by.

Head to the beach just 5 houses away down our quiet street. Search for shells or bike the pathway which runs alongside the dunes to Longboat Pass where dolphin frequent. Later, walk to the historic main street pier for a grouper sandwich or do a little shopping. Afterwards, take a quick nap in the hammock swinging between the palm trees..ZZZZZ..

In the afternoon, take a swim in the clear blue waters of the Gulf and relax on the white sand beaches. Snorkel out to the sand bar and collect sand dollars. Rent a jet ski, try para-sailing, or rent a Hobie-cat for some fun in the water.

Wrap up your sun-filled day enjoying a glass of wine and those delicious crab claws with your family and friends... and then stroll to the beach to applause another spectacular sunset. End your evening at one of the many wonderful local restaurants. Our kids love to catch shrimp off the seawall at night, while the rest of us tell stories around the outdoor fire pit.

Owning these historic cottages is a family affair. My wife and I, along with my parentS, all living in Minnesota, have lovingly restored these cottages. It has taken many trips over the past few years to revitalize this wonderfully unique place.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

The waterfront location with endless water views drew us in immediately. The cottages built in 1939 needed a lot of love. Most buyers would have torn them down and built three story condos, but we saw their unique character. These cottages are true Old Florida....but now with modern amenities. Their history as a fishing camp is still evident.

Our guests absolutely love the casual, relaxing feel of the cottages. They're built for flip-flops and swimsuits. We've brought out the island feel with color, open rafters, surfboards, faux-alligator leather chairs, while leaving the original wood floors with years of wear. Sit back and relax on your screened porch, just like the old days.

Jump off the dock for a swim in the bay or just stroll down the street to the gorgeous sugar-sand beaches.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the main house upper unit. I can't say enough about the whole experience. The beach is 200 steps away and the Bay in your backyard. With a hammock, picnic table, dock, grill, there is so much to do! We fished a lot. Caught spotted trout, grunts, catfish, etc. saw plenty of snook, dolphins, stingrays, etc. The owner was extremely nice! Very helpful and prompt to respond. The house was awesome! Just perfect for a couple. We will def be back and we will rent from this owner again! I highly recommend!

CHARMING PLACE, GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the larger of the fishing cottages for three weeks and had an incredible time. So relaxing! We had a great time fishing and hanging out on the dock, and it was a couple minute walk to the beach. We cannot wait to go back. We met some really wonderful people staying in the cottage next door and loved the laid back feel of the island. Super nice owners!

BEAUTIFUL BAY-SIDE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic vacation at Cottage B on AMI! The cottage had everything we needed and had a wonderful aesthetic. The space was spotless and filled with light throughout the day. We woke up early many mornings to enjoy the view of the sunrise just steps from the cottage. The beach is right across the street. You can't beat the location which is situated between the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive to our questions. We were dying to figure out the best grouper sandwich on the island and he got back to us right away with his picks! We highly recommend dining at The Island Spice, Star Fish Fish Market, Village Idiot Pizzeria, and Skinny's Place. We also really enjoyed The Fish Hole Mini Golf, walking throughout the island, taking the trolley, spotting a manatee and dolphins, and driving to other nearby destinations.

COTTAGE B- ITS THE BEST!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Spent two weeks in cottage "B" in March 2011 and returning for three in 2012. Working on a month, one week at a time. These cottages really are great for relaxing and just kicking back. Great neighbors, Being on the bay side of the island, the sunrises are just as spectacular as the sunsets and are a great way to wake up. Spent several winters in the Keys and this place is just as laid back. Plus, the island is great for walking, biking and kayaking. Everything that you need is close by.

COTTAGE A

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in Cottage A for the month of February 2011. We loved the little cottage and the views were great. The bay is right out the front door. The property is very well cared for and clean. Friendly owners. Great restaurants and shopping nearby. We especially liked The Gathering Place for dinner. We plan on returning for the month of February 2012.
