Hi Anne Marie,
We arrived (and so did our bags this morning). All is well. We love the cottage and AMI!
OWNER COMMENT-THESE GUESTS STAY WAS RIGHT AFTER THE (BAD REVIEW) GUESTS STAY...-
This is a sweet little cottage perfect for the two of us. Great location. Anne-Marie, the owner, and Scott, the property manager, are very involved and try to make your stay a good one. Anna Maria is a wonderful place to visit--great for the over 50 crowd who want to have a good time. Don't miss Rod and Reel Pier! There are plenty of affordable restaurants and bars and plenty to do. A great vacation!
My favorite place in the world is in this little cottage on this little area of Anna Maria. The quintessential charming old-Florida cottage is simply wonderful. From sunrise to sunset and beyond each day in the cottage is filled with love and ease. I highly recommend this location for your stay here. It's close to the bay and Gulf beaches and smack dab in the center of all island activities. Thank you for a glorious stay, Anne Marie. I will be back for sure!!!!!!
Just a note to let you know that we had a wonderful time on your island. Your cottage was perfect. We spent many hours relaxing on the back deck in the evening after sun filled days on the beach. We never thought we would vacation in Florida in August but, the ceiling fans in the cottage were more than adequate. Everything was as your description indicated, clean, roomy and comfortable.
Our only regret was not getting to know you better; for we are sure you are a very interesting person to know. Maybe next time. I'm sure we will be back.

My husband and I rented this cottage for our anniversary vacation. The house was just what we expected and the location was perfect right next to the beach. The cottage was very clean, quiet and cozy. A deck in the front and one in the back was perfect for grilling or chilling. The owner was very charming and help to make our stay more enjoyable! This cottage is perfect for family, romantic getaways, or girl night out. If you love deep sea fishing you don't want to miss Stray Dog Charters and Dips has the most fabulous ice cream. Thank you Anna for letting us share you lovely cottage.. We hope to return next year, but for a longer stay!
We had a relaxing stay in this lovely cozy cottage on Anna Maria. It is open, bright and airy and was perfect for our family. We only stayed two nights on our way to Disney, but found that it had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the outdoor spaces for eating and playing. We spent most of our time at several great beaches on the island and appreciated the outdoor shower at the cottage.
We have just returned from a fantastic weekend in this quant cottage, Anne-Marie was there to greet us and gave us tips on where to find the shops, restaurants, beaches, pier etc (all a very short stroll from the cottage). It has a french shabby chic interior and quirky handmade items both inside and out to make it a truly enchanted place to stay.
The sun deck is a sun trap and ideal for somewhere to eat or have a drink, we didnt use the bbq but there is one there. We would recomend this enchanted cottage and hope to visit again next year. Thanks Ann-Marie
