Overview

Anna Maria Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Welcome to Peppertree Studio. This private, clean, updated, bright and airy beach-side studio is situated just a couple houses from the Gulf of Mexico beach access. There are no roads to cross in order to enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches and glorious sunsets on the west coast of Florida. It's here that you will delight in the finest white sand with miles of pristine shoreline, perfect for long walks along the surf.

Calling all writers looking for a quiet, beach retreat...or maybe you're an artist in need of some beach inspiration and time to create alone. If you're looking for a perfect, affordable honeymoon (or second honeymoon) suite, this is it! There's also a 2BR, 2BA cottage on the same property (same owners) available to rent. See VRBO listing #389842 for more info. Reductions available when rented together.

Sit out back on your own private patio and enjoy your morning coffee in lush privacy. Witness sunsets from the beach each evening and be home in moments. During the summer months loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs on these beaches and you will likely see dolphins.

The city of Anna Maria has no fast food restaurants, no traffic lights and no high rises. It’s 'Old Florida' at its best, when things were tranquil and living was easy. Whether your goal is to finish that good book you’ve been reading (or writing), stroll some quaint island shops or gather your collection of seashells, it’s all easily accomplished here.

Nature lovers will be amazed at the natural habitat of Anna Maria. Whether you’re a bird watcher, shell collector, fishing enthusiast, or master gardener, you’ll find what you’re looking for here. Our sugar sand beaches are strewn with seashells and are well populated by shore birds, sea turtles and dolphin. Take a minute and picture yourself napping on a beach towel on the warm sand by the Gulf of Mexico, all to the gentle sounds of the surf...just breathe.

About The Owner

Roger and I (Katy) have lived in Bradenton for 28 years. Our children have grown up spending a lot of time on this island and loving it. Watching dolphin, manatees and pelicans has become one of our favorite pastimes.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2011

Why The Owner chose Anna Maria

We bought our first beach house in 2000. As time passed, and with the addition of our grandchildren, we outgrew it and were fortunate to find The Peppertree Cottage and Studio. The quiet street and gulf beach access, one house away, sold us! With the house situated on ground level it’s also more comfortable and convenient. Now it's time for the next generation to fall in love with this incredible island.

What makes this studio unique

Every time we arrive on Anna Maria it’s like entering a different world. The charming island atmosphere completely relaxes you. Everyone who visits has a hard time leaving and immediately makes plans to return. The free trolley is also a real plus and allows visitors to see the entire island with someone else taking care of the driving.

Lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

We discovered this studio last year and came back . It is just a lovely low key spot with everything you need for an island vacation. The beach is literally 3 minutes down a sandy path right outside your door. Dolphin sightings during the day. Spectacular sunsets in the evening! Walk to the Sandbar beach bar and restaurant. Shopping a ten minute walk away. We really enjoyed

a very relaxing vacation!

Sunsets, Sunsets, Sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

Nice little studio that was pretty much as described. Excellent location on AMI - easy beach access, good walking everywhere, close to good restaurants (The Sandbar!). Studio was well equipped with kitchen items, towels, beach needs, chairs, access to bikes, outdoor grill. In addition to going out, we enjoyed having several meals at the studio. The owner and property manager provided very thorough info about the island and the studio prior to arrival as well as a nice welcome message. I would personally look for a little more room for a longer stay, but this was a great introduction to a lovely place. Sunsets are magnificent!

Romantic Getaway for Two!

  • 5 of 5

The studio was exactly what we were expecting! The pictures are not deceiving!

So cute, clean, and comfortable! MUST stay here!

We loved that the studio was clean and stocked! Beach towels, dishes, towels, etc. all provided! This was such a nice touch, just pack your clothes and you're set!

Perfect location, just a quick walk to the beach - You don't have to worry about parking or driving the island to get to a beach! We loved this! The provided bikes was such a nice bonus. Some of our favorite days were spent biking the island!

AMI has such a great relaxing vibe, we absolutely want to come back! Everyone was so nice. The Peppertree Studio and Cottage have the best management team, had we needed anything they were available to us! We received a phone call on our way home just to make sure we enjoyed our stay - Such a great personal touch!

Our only complaint... It was June, (101 with the heat index) we didn't get to enjoy the patio nearly as much as we wanted!

Thanks for a great honeymoon!

Must Eats - The Waterfront and AMI Donuts!

Happy in AMI

  • 5 of 5

We had the most memorable time in the "Studio" at Peppertree. The cottage was cozy, comfy and clean. The short walk to the beach was delightful. Every morning I took my coffee to the back terrace and read my paper. The shade of the palm trees combined with the gentle breeze was so soothing. We will definitely return.

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER ANNUAL BEACH VACATION

  • 5 of 5

Peppertree Studio is delightful and deserves 5 stars! The studio and location are exactly as described...a sweet retreat that welcomes you with comfortable furnishings that are clean and well-maintained. Very easy and private access to the beach...which is glorious...white sand and blue/green clear water. Lots of beach toys/chairs and bikes to use. My daughter loved biking around the island. The backyard is shady and relaxing with beautiful plants and foliange. The property manager, Lin, is very responsive and her customer service was awesome ensuring our stay was a happy onel. My daughter and I truly enjoyed our week in the Peppertree Studio and on Anna Maria Island. I highly recommend Peppertree Studio for your Anna Maria Island getaway.
