SPOIL YOURSELF! POOL-SPA-DOCK-SEA+ONLY STEPS TO SUGAR-WHITE-SAND. GEM!

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!

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!

Hospitality defined!

  • 5 of 5
Anna Maria Island is a perfect island getaway. The Beach Nest is very well maintained and the owners met us and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The only detraction from our stay was the height of the bridges over the canals the home uses for bay access. If you bring a boat with a standard size T-top, you will have problems with clearance and getting out of the canal on the tides. This was our only issue in our stay. The house is centrally located to the beaches and all of the restuarants on the island. The Rod and Reel and Harry's Grill had really great food. Very beautiful island, cant wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 star review! It was lovely having you stay with us at Beach Nest.
I note that you recommend Beach Nest as handicap accessible. Thank you for pointing that out. To make things easier we have a ramp for the front porch and a roll-in shower in one of the ensuite bathrooms.
We'd love to welcome you back!

Beach Nest Cottage, Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful family vacation at Beach Nest. We had hoped to come close to all that we experienced in Hilton Head, SC, but actually came away with so much more.
The Walker's were happy to make our stay comfortable, with attention to detail and requests. Our family enjoyed not only the welcoming cottage but the beauty of the beach, kayaking, the pool, dock, and shaded porch. With a few extras that they were able to provide, we enhanced an already terrific vacation. Restaurants, shops, and the free trolley are all close by. We hope to visit them next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and - AGREED! Nothing like kayaking thru the mangrove tunnels behind Beach Nest. Upclose and educational with the Florida estuary eco-system, the wildlife is extraordinary. Our mangroves protect and feed not only fish but huge manatees too. You'll see everything except crocs and gators-they don't go near salt water!
The beaches are deserted now and the water is climbing up to that bathtub temperature. What a lovely time to visit-we'd love to welcome you and yours back!

You cannot believe how beautiful this place is!!

  • 5 of 5
First of all, Anna Maria Island is INCREDIBLE!! Had never heard of it, stumbled upon it and will certainly be back! Just ranked #3 on Trip Advisor for 2014 best islands. And this property is really just perfect. Just returned after spending time here with extended family members and they all raved about this place. It's an easy walk to the beautiful, tranquil beach which I felt VERY comfortable letting my 8 year old and 6 year old swim around for hours. The owner will even rent you a big wagon full of all your beach essentials for a nominal fee. The owners live just down the street from the property and are always attentive to any issue that might come up. Also, they are happy to provide you recommendations for dining, activities, etc while you are there. The house was VERY clean, beds comfortable and the pool was just perfect. Honestly, this is literally the best VRBO property I have even stayed at.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Beach Nest! Not only do kids love the pool but as parents we like it too. The pool is salt water so it is better for your skin, hair and even smells nice.
Yes we were voted number 3 by Trip Advisor, but Anna Maria still feels like one of Florida's best-kept secrets. Shhhhhh. We'll try to keep it that way.
Hurry back-we just had a big rain storm and the shelling is fabulous! Liza and Kit

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.
