Our family has lovingly restored this HISTORIC 1939 FISHING CAMP located on beautiful Sarasota Bay. You'll be surrounded by water living on the narrowest point of Anna Maria Island. The BEACH IS LESS THAN 1 BLOCK AWAY!
These cottages were built by a former navy man and published boat designer, Bruce Crandal. Choose between the three unique cottages or rent them all for a family reunion. We know you'll fall in love!
Located at 115 SOUTH 7TH STREET, the cottages have a very private yard which extends out into the bay, giving expansive unobstructed views of the historic clock tower and pier, the sailboat harbor, draw bridge, and the skyline of Sarasota. The large dock can easily accommodate two boats, and is great for fishing, or just watching the boats go by.
IT'S ALL ABOUT SLOWING DOWN TO ISLAND TIME...
Start your days with a cup of coffee on your private front porch watching the sailboats in the bay, then try your luck fishing off the dock for grouper, snook, or reds. Set a crab trap for dinner later. Or just watch the Manatee swim by.
Head to the beach just 5 houses away down our quiet street. Search for shells or bike the pathway which runs alongside the dunes to Longboat Pass where dolphin frequent. Later, walk to the historic main street pier for a grouper sandwich or do a little shopping. Afterwards, take a quick nap in the hammock swinging between the palm trees..ZZZZZ..
In the afternoon, take a swim in the clear blue waters of the Gulf and relax on the white sand beaches. Snorkel out to the sand bar and collect sand dollars. Rent a jet ski, try para-sailing, or rent a Hobie-cat for some fun in the water.
Wrap up your sun-filled day enjoying a glass of wine and those delicious crab claws with your family and friends... and then stroll to the beach to applause another spectacular sunset. End your evening at one of the many wonderful local restaurants. Our kids love to catch shrimp off the seawall at night, while the rest of us tell stories around the outdoor fire pit.
Owning these historic cottages is a family affair. My wife and I, along with my parentS, all living in Minnesota, have lovingly restored these cottages. It has taken many trips over the past few years to revitalize this wonderfully unique place.
The waterfront location with endless water views drew us in immediately. The cottages built in 1939 needed a lot of love. Most buyers would have torn them down and built three story condos, but we saw their unique character. These cottages are true Old Florida....but now with modern amenities. Their history as a fishing camp is still evident.
Our guests absolutely love the casual, relaxing feel of the cottages. They're built for flip-flops and swimsuits. We've brought out the island feel with color, open rafters, surfboards, faux-alligator leather chairs, while leaving the original wood floors with years of wear. Sit back and relax on your screened porch, just like the old days.
Jump off the dock for a swim in the bay or just stroll down the street to the gorgeous sugar-sand beaches.
