BEACHSIDE HIDEAWAY; A WRITER'S OR ARTIST'S STUDIO RETREAT

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

ABSOLUTE GEM!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at this great little studio last July and loved it and Anna Maria Island so much that I returned again this year for another great vacation. Anna Maria is unlike any other beach community that I have visited, such a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful white sands and sunshine, each time leaving me with only one regret - that I have to leave! One thing you will notice while visiting this Island is that everyone on the Island has a perpetual smile on their face.

The Studio is so bright and cheerful and a perfect space for one or two people with only a short walk to the beach in the morning to catch some sun or watching the sunset in the evening. You can't go wrong renting this studio which is fully equipped with everything you need and more. This year I discovered another great place for dinner - The Beach Bistro. Thanks again Lin for another great stay!

PERFECT SETTING

  • 5 of 5
The Studio was without question the centrepiece of our wonderful week on Anna Maria. It's location is perfect. Situated on a quiet, attractive street, we were just steps away from the beautiful gulf-side beaches and within easy walking distance of restaurants, shopping and many of the island's main attractions. In addition to being as cute as the photo's suggest, the Studio is an amazingly well-equipped and comfortable setting for two people. We made great use of the bicycles and beach accessories that are provided and enjoyed many mornings relaxing over coffee on the patio. The property manager could not have been more helpful in making sure we enjoyed our stay. Only regret is we couldn't stay longer. We will be back.

PEPPERTREE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property from Oct 14 -21. The weather was perfect and the location affords easy access to the beach where we had coffee each morning and sun all the day long. The space is perfect for two people. We bought groceries for breakfast and lunch and ate dinners out or brought pizza or burgers in, though you could easily grill. We also enjoyed pina coladas using the blender. Access to umbrellas, chairs, cooler etc made our stay perfect. Saw cool critters in and near ocean. The time of year meant a little bit of no-see-ums on the beach, but was remedied with bug spray. Great restaurants within easy walking distance, or a trolley ride. Try Sandbar at sunset, Gini and Jane E's for lunch or breakfast. We would definitely come here again!!!
