Cortez Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cortez Cottage 2B, 1B sleeps 1-4 with 1 B 1B studio sleeps an additional 1-2

Historic Cortez Fishing Village, home to THE WILLIAM GUTHRIE HOUSE, hugs the coast of Sarasota Bay on the Gulf Coast of Florida and is only minutes to Anna Maria Island. The traditional “cracker house” was built in 1915 and has been lovingly restored. It is a charming 1200 sq. ft. self-catering holiday cottage, 100 yards from Sarasota Bay, 0.3 mile from Bradenton Beach and minutes from Anna Maria Island. This self-catering rental cottage with sun deck, screened porch with new outdoor furniture in 2013 and BBQ sleeps 1-4 persons, has 2 bedrooms, 1 traditional sleeping porch, 1 large family shower room, open plan living/dining area with new sofa in 2013 and cook’s kitchen all with central heat and air conditioning. The hardwood floors, bead board walls and fireplace are just a few of the original features. In addition, The Shack, a studio cottage is an additional 280 sq. ft. with air conditioning, sleeps 1-2 persons, on 1 sleeper sofa and has 1 complete shower room.

About the Village of Cortez: Historic Cortez Village hugs the coast of Sarasota Bay and is one of the few surviving fishing villages on Florida’s west coast. The waters offshore are known as “The Kitchen” because of the bounty of fish harvested from these waters in the early days. Today Cortez has become a haven for artists, writers and fisherman who enjoy the unspoiled environment and slow pace of life.

Cortez is really a world all its own. In many ways, it is like taking a step back in time. You will be charmed by the old bungalows and cottages, many dating back to the 1920s, situated along short, narrow roads dotted with palm trees.

There are neighboring commercial fish houses on Sarasota Bay, where anglers dock their fishing boats and unload their fresh catches each and every day.

Bradenton: Bradenton is a friendly town offering historical attractions and outdoor activities for the young, and young at heart. It is located on the southern most part of Tampa Bay between St. Petersburg and Sarasota. From the dazzling white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, to the banks of the Manatee River, Bradenton offers swimming, fishing, boating, parasailing, canoeing or kayaking. A half dozen beautiful golf courses are located in Bradenton, where the weather is not an issue and you can play sun up to sun down.

The Orlando attractions such as Disney World, MGM Studio and Sea World are just an hour and a half away from Bradenton.

Anna Maria Island: Anna Maria Island is located off the west coast of Florida between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. It’s accessed by two bridges from the mainland and is the northernmost of a string of barrier islands that stretch south to the Florida Keys. Anna Maria Island supports three cities, Anna Maria at the northern end, Holmes Beach in the center and Bradenton Beach at the southern tip. The island boasts a seven-mile long beach rimmed with tall and graceful Australian pines, some as high as 60 feet. There are three fishing piers, charter and sailboat rentals, as well as any number of beach activities to enjoy. Parasailing is a fun way to get a unique look at the island, and there are public tennis courts in Anna Maria and Holmes Beach. If golf is your game, Anna Maria Island is just a short drive to more than 45 championship courses.

There are many beachside restaurants, just a bridge walk away, with wonderful views where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean.

Very nice "Cracker" styled house was well decorated with unique furnishings. Quite retreat from our busy lives. The description, "Charming Gulf Coast Cottage", was very accurate. We have already recommended this property to another couple. The owner was very helpful answering questions before and during our stay. Nice clean property,well maintained & off busy street. This was our first experience renting with VRBO was we were very pleased. Very quite neighborhood and minutes from beach.

A Great Vacation Find

  • 5 of 5
This was our first VRBO experience and our first visit to this wonderful Cortez Cottage. We are certainly planning to visit again. The cottage is beautifully restored, inside and out, loaded with modern conveniences and filled with tasteful well-coordinated furnishings, clearly done by someone with an eye for tasteful design. The whole house A/C was powerful but whisper quiet. The stainless appliances were top notch. Everything worked. It was like home -- only better. The kitchen was completely furnished for the cook, the internet was readily available. The Cortez area is great, short distance to several excellent beaches, many with shady areas and being an authentic fishing village is the perfect place for a seafood lover with many excellent choices. Very close to Bradenton and Sarasota area where we found great attractions.

The William Gutherie House

  • 3 of 5
Location is great. Convenient to beach, Sarasota, St. Pete and Tampa. Cottage is funky and charming. Owners are welcoming and accommodating. Brighter lighting, more comfortable beds and furniture would be welcomed. Guest house is darling and provided the needed extra bathroom and shower. Property was clean. Many excellent restaurants in neighborhood.

Wonderful "old Florida" cottage!

Wonderful "old Florida" cottage!
  • 5 of 5
We had such a lovely holiday, the house was so charming and comfortable! The cottage has been thoughtfully restored and decorated. Everything we needed was there, and more. We spent many happy hours sitting in the screened-in porch and back deck. The neighborhood was very quiet, the village has a lot of historic character, and there a a few good restaurants (and live music) within a short walk. All the restaurants, shops and beach fun of Anna Maria Island are a quick walk or bike ride away. The entire booking process was so easy, the property manager is pleasant, attentive and thorough. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing Florida vacation. We are very much looking forward to our next trip! Thanks so much for the memorable stay!

Hemingway would have been happy here!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I needed to get away to a quiet place to do some writing for a few days in January. The William Guthrie House was the perfect selection for us. So much care and attention to detail went into restoring this historic cottage, and turn it into a welcoming vacation home for its guests. We agree with the previous reviewer who said the pictures do not do this place justice! The enclosed front porch gets lovely morning light and the screened in back porch is great for warm afternoons. The neighborhood is quaint and quiet, with easy walking to several waterfront restaurants. A quick drive (or bike ride) across the bridge gets you to long, lovely beaches, and a wide range of gulffront and bayside restaurants. There are plenty of shops too - although we were not there for that purpose. A special thank you to our hosts for checking in on us to make sure all our needs were met, and to share some helpful tips for getting around town. We look forward to a return visit, sometime soon we hope!
