The best vacation rental on the planet!!!

  • 5 of 5

As you can tell we are still here but I couldn't wait to put in my review. This is the best beach rental we have ever had!!! It is luxury wrapped up in the most adorable small package called Seahorse Cottage. Attention to the best is evident in every well thought out detail in this home!! The kitchen is beautiful and has the best upscale appliances. We have so enjoyed preparing our meals while on this trip. The bathrooms are very nice and beautifully decorated. The best surprise was that the beds are memory foam!!! I have Fibromylgia and always dread the beds while on vacation. I actually have looked forward to bed time. We have spent our evenings after a wonderful day on the beach hanging out by our private pool which is located in a beautifully landscaped back yard. Most comfortable seating out there as well. We have eaten our meals on the beautiful table outside. You can literally get off your plane with nothing but your suitcase because everything you need is here including fabulous beach chairs, buggy, pool floats and towels. The water and beach are stunning and great shell hunting. We have had a great week here celebrating our daughter and son in law's graduation from medical school. The owners take great care in providing a top of the line vacation and we are grateful and very thrilled to have spent a week here!!!

Owner's Response: Angela and Family, We certainly like happy guests and it appears that we have managed to please you! Thank you for the wonderful review of Seahorse Cottage. We did try our best to make sure everything was high end without making it “stuffy” or “uncomfortable” for an island beach cottage. Glad the beds met with your approval as that is one of my pet peeves when I am on vacation as well so I do know how important it is. Take care and come back to your little home away from home any time as we would love to have you back to enjoy our cottage and our great beaches. Congrats to your daughter and son in law on their graduation!

Well Appointed, Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in the home, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The north end of Anna Maria is quiet, and you're in short walking distance of Rod and Reel pier restaurant, and easy riding (or 10 min walking distance) to City Pier and "downtown" Anna Maria. The home has been tastefully updated, looks new, and has all the toys and amenities you need for beach or pool fun. The master suite is nice, with a good bathroom and wonderful shower. We've already booked to go back next year!!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Seahorse Cottage, and that you will be returning next year! We love the privacy in the backyard where we can BBQ a delicious meal while lounging around the pool, and the fact that it is walking distance to the beautiful sandy beaches is spectacular. Guests like you are the reason that we love our rental agent Gulf Islands Vacation Rentals.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time!! The cottage was beautiful, clean and well maintained. We loved the heated pool and how close the cottage is to the beach. We would definitely recommend Sea Horse Cottage. Bob was awesome with recommending places to go and things to do. That was very helpful.

Owner's Response: Amber, Great! Glad you liked Seahorse Cottage and the pool. Being so close to the beach is also a plus for us and being on the incredible North end of the island certainly has its merits as well. It is just so quiet and peaceful that you can certainly unwind and relax. Gulf Islands Vacation Rentals is THE best rental agency on the islands as they specialize in customer service for the guests as well as taking care of us, the owners. Glad Bob was helpful as it is always nice to get recommendations from a local. Hope to see you again soon.

Lacks for nothing

  • 4 of 5

Superb location just 3 minutes walk to beach, and very well equipped.

Although close to neighbouring properties we found it very quiet and relaxing throughout the 4 week period we were there. The back yard is private and the pool area is just right. Twenty minute walk to the nearest trolley stop on Pine Avenue.

Cozy, wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a month in the house, and just loved it. The size may seem small, but when you open the back doors, the inside and outside flow together to create a big beautiful open space. I love living on a single level. Everything I needed was there, and walking distance to the shops sealed the deal. Bob and Ellie were always there to help out. Can't wait to go back next year.

Owner's Response: Terri, We are so glad you enjoyed our home and I agree with you about living on the ground level. There is nothing like having the pool 2 steps away when you walk out the door rather than walking down a flight of stairs and back up when you need something. I see you have already booked for 6 weeks for next year!! Glad to have you back and as you know, if there is anything you need Ellie or Bob are always there to help. Take care and see you next year.

Awesome Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome home to retreat to the beach in Ana Maria. We stayed there over Thanksgiving and loved the location and the excellent amenities and quality of this home. It is brand new with a full kitchen, great appliances and room for dining and relaxing . The two bedrooms are good sized each has a bathroom. The best is the heated pool and patio in the back, very quiet and a great place for morning coffee and afternoon swims. Oh I forgot to mention the beach! Miles of white sandy beach facing the gulf is just a block away from your front door and the fishing pier with a small restaurant serving the best blackened grouper sandwiches is just a few blocks walk. This is a perfect home for a beach vacation.

Owner's Response: Bernie and Family, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Seahorse Cottage. I couldn’t have said it better! The pool and patio are just gorgeous but it’s hard to beat those white sandy beaches and the grouper sandwich! Please come back and visit us soon and I’ll keep a spot ready for you!

Anna Maria Island is located on the Central West Coast of Florida nestled between the tropical blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the West and Tampa Bay to the North. Once a best –kept secret among local Floridians, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'… The island consists of 3 cities, Bradenton Beach being the southernmost, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria City on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique and charming shops and restaurants. Anna Maria Island has miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions. Located close to all the major attractions, yet far from the maddening crowds make the Gulf Island Beaches the ideal vacation spot. Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset all in a day… You need never leave the island to find fun and relaxation. Our island is only 7 miles long and no more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of waves and visions of the sunset in every location. Enjoy a day at the beach and watch the kids play in the sand. Walk along pristine beaches and dine in award-winning restaurants, Enjoy fresh grouper sandwiches on a pier and sipping martinis while enjoying live music. Go shopping in our specialty shops and boutiques all along the island. We even have a Free Trolley to take you where you want to go. The friendly environment and endless activities will keep you coming back for more. Hop aboard and experience island paradise!
