Overview

Anna Maria Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beachie, Bright and Beautiful. Say no more. You’re there! North end + Gulf-side

Ready to satisfy that oh-my-gosh-we-need-a-vacation? Beach Nest will make you absolutely swoon. Kick off your shoes and throw them in the back of the closet. Promise yourselves to live in bathing suits from breakfast to bedtime! Vacationers, dreamers, honeymooners, would-be family-reunion planners and just plain oglers -- peer into our rooms! Fancifully concocted with the latest interior whimsy. Gaze at flowers, trees, mosses, grasses, ferns, a breathtaking swimming pool, a well-landscaped garden, trellises and furniture that has been collected and restored to transform the yard into a water-lovers’ Eden. Watch the kayaks bob by and the dolphins play. Throw in a line from your private fishing dock. Rent kayaks and explore the mangrove shaded intercoastal waterway. Welcome to Beach Nest! Beach Nest gives the feeling of joyous spontaneity with vivid colors, cushie-comfy furniture and details that are confident and filled with imagination. You can see it in a master bedroom with an antique chandelier, king bed covered with a red, white and blue quilt and an ensuite bathroom with a claw foot tub. French doors open to the pool and water view. The second master is pretty-in-pale-pink, with a European king-sized bed, antique mirror and a white marble ensuite bathroom that makes a special bedroom just a little more special. French doors open to the front garden with views of palm trees and orchids. A flowered crewel bedspread is draped over the four poster queen bed in yet another guest room. The children’s room has a trundle with another pull-out twin and can be decorated for the princess or the prince in your group. All adults? We can do that too! They share a bright and beautiful hall bath. A sparkling clean and light kitchen is outfitted to make the chef in your group happy. Food processor, blender, gas range, Calphalon pots and pans, electric juicer, food processor, electric tea kettle, blender, coffee pot, toaster and mixer plus a stock pot and a good set of carving knives. Dishes: crystal wine glasses, full set of china, colorful serving dishes, brandy snifters, beer glasses, wine buckets, dessert bowls, coffee mugs, etc. plus cook books galore! The dining area seats eight with a view. Over-sized couches surround a flat screen and each adult bedroom has a flat screen. Piano anyone? Or gazing at the stars through the telescope? A desk and lounge chair with a water view are a cozy spot to chat, read a book or pretend to check in with the office. Mangrove shaded water views, a boat dock, outside dining plus a swing on the porch complete the picture.

Within walking distance to shopping and restaurants, Beach Nest is ideally set just 6 houses from the Gulf of Mexico beach on the north end. Whether you dream of a break from the winter cold, a long honeymoon retreat or the perfect family getaway destination, Beach Nest offers you the finest in beauty, comfort and convenience.

Come and experience the true island magic of Anna Maria, one the most un-self-consciously 'hip' islands on the west coast of Florida and one of the few places on earth that offers such peace, serenity and escape from the crowds.

By now you’ve probably heard of Anna Maria Island. And if you haven’t, you will in 5…4…3…2…1 – someone will have mentioned it to you in the time it took to read that. That’s because it’s an uber-fun, absolutely addicting, everyone-who-stays-here-loves-it vacation spot that you just need to know about. You've picked Beach Nest, only 6 houses from the sugar white sand of Gulf of Mexico. Sunsets to die for and dolphin sightings guaranteed! Walk to boutiques, restaurants, ice cream shops or the free trolley. Rent a bike or golf cart and get around the way the locals do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a perfectly beautiful vacation. We loved staying at the Beach Nest. Disney will not be able to out-do the pool, beautifully decorated home and ambience of Anna Maria. We are all sad to leave it behind. We appreciate the work you have put into Beach Nest to make it inviting and relaxing. Here's to coming back again!

Paradise...if you are looking to relax, this is the place...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to Anna Maria Island for many years and we decided to try a new place for a change, well what can I say, this truly is paradise. Liza and Kit you have your own little peace of Heaven here and I thank you for allowing others to experience it. From the moment you walk in the door, all of your stresses melt away. Every detail is accounted for and the lavendar scented sheets, well that was a topper for me. The outdoor pool area is fantastic...to just sit there on the swing and read a book with the birds in the background, you couldn't ask for anything more. My only regret was not taking a bubble bath in the luxurious claw foot tub, next time...Thanks so much.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments and thank you for spending your 12th Anniversary at Beach Nest. Our garden is planted with flowers that attract butterflies and birds. Two woodpeckers have made their home in a coconut tree by the dock. A flock of wild green parrots often visit too. Rumored to be escaped or released from captivity, the parrots live happily amongst the seagulls and other birds in our backyards. Sometimes their nests have up it 40 birds. Family and community oriented - just like the people that visit our island and live here! Liza and Kit

home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I have never been so comfortable on a vacation! Sometimes despite how much fun you're having, you know the feeling you get that you're ready to go home? Well, not here. I could've stayed a month. It was the most relaxing trip I've been on...ever? And my 1 yr old & 3 yr old were there! The pool was awesome, we paddle boarded & kayaked off the dock and were able to walk/bike ride anywhere we needed (beach, park, ice cream/restaurants and the pier!). The house is stunning but surprisingly kid friendly, too.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 star review! The mangrove-shaded canals are perfect for paddle-boarding! So pleased Beach Nest was comfortable for the little ones. We have children too and know how important it is to have books and toys plus a list of kid-friendly things to do in case it rains. Lots of room in the yard for little ones to run around ensures a good night's sleep for everyone. Hurry back! Liza and Kit Walker

Perfect Time at the beachnest

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the beachnest and Liza was very friendly and helpful.

The house is great and very well equipped. We had our wedding during our stay and we can truly say everything was just perfect. We will certainly return for our anniversaries.

We stayed a full week with 8 adults.

Perfect long weekend for family!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a 4 day visit with my family to celebrate my 60th birthday and my parent's 65th wedding anniversary. The cottage was better than I expected! So many unique and fun touches to make us feel comfortable. (I have already bought a large basket to store my beach towels for the pool!) We were greeted with wine and birthday cake.

The bedrooms are so comfortable and pretty. Really loved the hula girl sheets! There were a plethora of soft, beautiful towels. You'll never use them all! It was a short bike ride to the Rod and Reel Pier, where we had dinner our first night. The fried grouper sandwich was a big hit and cheap beer.

The beach was much closer than I thought, just a short walk. Beautiful, soft sand that was so great for the grandchildren. Clear, warm water that was calm and soothing. Thank you Liza and Kitt, it was a great time for all of us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for for spending the the birthday and anniversary celebrations at Beach Nest. I agree, there can never be enough white fluffy towels and good cotton bedding! Yes, the beach, restaurants, boutiques, the piers... everything is nearby. Most guests never get back in their car until the day they leave-everything is accessible by walking or biking. Hurry back!

1 week stay 12th to 19th July 2014

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The property is lovely and easily accommodated our family (2 adults 3 children). 5 minute walk from beautiful un-crowded beaches. A typical day for us was the beach back in the afternoon to relax by the pool and a cycle around the island in the evening stopping off for ice creams before watching the sun set and wild dolphins swim by the pier idyllic!!!

Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay at your beautiful beach nest. We spent many nights making gourmet meals and relaxing in your beautiful pool. The house is a perfect setting for a tired group of friends after a year of teaching. The decor is very welcoming and appealing! The beds were extremely comfortable and all the extra touches were very appreciated by all of us. Location of the house was great too. We enjoyed bike rides into town and walks to the beach. We would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Wow what a lovely 5 star review! Thank you so much for taking the time to rate Beach Nest! You are our best advertisement! The beds are especially comfy because all our mattresses are first rate with 100% percale sheets and cozy duvets. I love cooking in the kitchen with a water and pool view. One of the nicest parts of being ground floor is the easy access to the barbecue and all the outside activity. Looking forward to welcoming you back! Liza and Kit

OBSESSED. By now you’ve probably heard of Anna Maria Island. And if you haven’t, you will in 5…4…3…2…1 – someone will have mentioned it to you in the time it took to read that.

Want a break from the sun? Disney and Universal are only a couple hours drive and Sarasota, the cultural Center of the Gulf coast is only 45 minutes away.
