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!

Cosy Beach Cottage In Quiet neighborhood very close to Bean Point beaches

  • 5 of 5

This new 2BR/2BA home is located on a very quiet street in Anna Maria. It is all new inside and out, clean and fresh, and a great layout.I would consider this home "upscale" if that is what you are looking for, as we were.We slept great every night, dark and very quiet.It has a heated pool, new grill(which we never used),nice landscaping, 2 comfy wicker chairs with ottomans for sitting under the patio when we had our morning coffee from the provided Keurig maker, or having lunch.We never cooked in the kitchen, but it had all stainless appliances. Some plastic outdoor dinnerware would be appreciated by those who do want to cook and dine out on the patio dining table. We were disappointed that the "uplighting" never came on at dark, as it would have been very pretty, and provided the much needed light when arriving back to house after dinner at night, as it was very dark. We Love our own landscape uplighting, and it is welcoming when coming home after dark. Bring your mosquito repellent for the evening & at night.The walk to the beach is great for the evening sunsets. It rained very hard one night and then another day during our stay. I might say that the owners could put some DVD's in the home, along with games for when it does rain, as other rentals we have used in the past. There are no premium movie channels provided, so only very basic TV viewing. Also, we love music, and there was nothing in the home to provide any music. Some type of iPod/ihome player to play your ipod/iPhone so that you can listen to your own, or provide a CD player/small stereo. There was just the two of us, so the 4 provided beach towels we enough. However, if there are 2 couples, more beach towels are needed. Also a few more dish towels are needed. The managers, Ellie and Bob while choosing a home on the island were extremely helpful and nice to work with.The home only had 1 umbrella for the beach, and when I emailed Ellie to request another one, it was promptly delivered. As a matter of fact, we both thought check-out was at 11am, and it is really at 10am. I called Ellie and explained our misunderstanding and she was very nice about it. We arrived to a clean home and we left it exactly like we arrived, other than the normal sheets and towels we used that morning before leaving.The only thing I would add, is that the owner/manager ask the house keepers to dust the blinds and window sills when they come to clean weekly, other than that, everything was perfect.

Owner's Response: Rhonda and Edward, I am disappointed that you did not let us know that the lighting did not come on around the pool and the landscaping! When we lose power during the summer storms it can disrupt the timer but it is a very simple fix when we know about it. I will put it on the list of things to check when we do our inspection before a guest arrives along with the dusty window sills and blinds! I do apologize for that. We do welcome your suggestions of some plastic ware for the pool area and some games for those rainy days. There are music channels on the TV which most folks find adequate but we can certainly look into another source of music as well! We are glad that you enjoyed our home and the location and that you had a wonderful vacation overall. Ellie and Bob are there to take care of your needs so please come back and visit and in the future please do not hesitate to let us know if you come across any issues.

Beautiful Home close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This home is gorgeous. Everything is first class and clean as a whistle. Just a short distance to the beach and there are plenty of chairs to use.

The back porch was a favorite place to lounge after using the pool. I will be back !

The management team is great to work with.

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.

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.
