If your dates are not available, please see our other property, the Lemon Cottage, VRBO 447281 that came online January 2013.

Anna Maria Island is known for its laid back vibe and old Florida charm. A Lime Cottage beach house, also known as Parrot Eyes, is the perfect place to stay to enjoy all that the island has to offer. The beach house is less than a three minute stroll from the sugar white sandy beaches and spectacular sunsets of the Gulf coast. The property has a private landscaped backyard with heated swimming pool, propane BBQ grill and outdoor shower for rinsing off the beach sand.

With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a Lime Cottage accommodates 4 to 6 people. The newly updated master bedroom has a king size bed. The second bedroom has a versatile twin over queen bunk bed and has also been newly updated. Both bedrooms have new, quality mattresses to assure restful sleep on new luxuriously soft 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. There are convertible sofas in each of the living areas. The living room has two new Queen sized sofa beds with premium upgraded spring mattresses featuring a memory foam layer.

The cottage is bright and open with plenty of windows to let in natural light. In the front is a spacious dining area with seating for 6. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge and ice-maker, gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, utensils, dishes, cutlery, and yes, right down to a stocked spice rack. In addition to the living room, there is a separate Florida room to relax in. The casual cottage décor is bright and eclectic.

Ideally located on a quiet dead end street, a Lime Cottage is kid safe and away from the traffic and noise of Gulf Drive; yet it is conveniently close to shopping, restaurants, supermarkets and local attractions. For added peace of mind for parents of younger guests, access to the pool area is gated and there is no direct access from the rear of the house.

The cottage is a ground level bungalow with minimal steps and no stairs to negotiate, making it accessible for seniors or those with mobility impairments.

We think our beach house is a terrific mix - conveniently close to local attractions, charmingly unpretentious, bright and airy, not too big and not too cramped. These are the reasons why many past guests come back and stay at this cottage year after year and view it as their second home. We welcome them back and we welcome you to visit as well.

We encourage you to contact us should you have any questions as we’re easily available by email and strive to respond quickly. We look forward to sharing our Cottage beach house.

Chris, Steph and the girls are a family from Toronto, Canada. As northerners...brrr...we seek warmth…any kind of warmth. You'll find an abundance of all kinds of warmth right on the island - warm smiles, warm breezes and warm water. We've fallen in love with the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere on Anna Maria Island, and we think you will too.

Chris So purchased this house in 2011

With seven miles of gulf coast beach, Anna Maria Island is comprised of three cities (not the kind of large scale city most of us would envision) with a combined population of under 10,000 – it feels more like a seaside town. The pace of life is laid-back. Local residents are warm and greet visitors like family. There are no high rise condos blocking beach views and access. Fast food chains are virtually absent, allowing visitors to discover unique local establishments.

I get this euphoric feeling every time I go to Anna Maria. It starts as soon as I arrive at Tampa Airport. It grows with the first pelican I see soaring in the sky, and is followed quickly by the scent of sea air. With each bridge that I cross on the drive down to the Island, I can feel my shoulders start to relax and my tensions fade. Once I’m over the last bridge on Cortez or Manatee, I know I'm in for a treat, because it's finally Island time!

The whole family loves the flora and fauna near the beach house. The colors are vivid. Palm trees rustle in the warm breeze. Tropical birds and cute little lizards (that help keep nuisance insects at bay) dart by. Gentle manatees glide by silently in the intercoastal waterway . Sea turtle nests appear on the beach. There's even a wildlife sanctuary just down the street (you’ll recognize it by the bunny rabbits and turtles in the front yard enclosure). Our kids love to visit the bunnies to feed them carrots and lettuce.

We can take a barefoot early morning walk to the beach and see the dolphins cavorting in the ocean. And we can return in the evening to watch the sun go down. Every sunset is different - sometimes the sky is filled with dramatic puffy clouds and every shade of crimson, magenta and blue and other times the sky is clear as the fiery orange ball drops below the horizon.

The Lime Cottage on Anna Maria Island was a delight! The owner has thought of everything that would make a stay in his property comfortable, welcoming and relaxing. The property was in a great location and offers privacy that can't be found in most locations. The house was equipped with everything one would need, the pool was warm and a good size. The location convenient.

Wonderful Cottage

Reserving the cottage, getting the keys, the process is very easy . Also the cottage has plenty of room for a family or 2 couples to share. The beach style you've created makes it even more inviting and with it being so close to the Gulf and beach you'll just want to spend time at the beach. Of course having the luxury of watching a sunset every evening .Having a heated pool to get into when ever you want is a big plus.There are so many places to visit and see. The one week we were there was too short even though this was our second stay and are hoping to return soon.

The perfect laid back getaway!

The cottage exceeded our expectations. It's well maintained and beautifully decorated in a quiet neighbourhood. The beach is an easy 5 min walk and the provided wagon and beach things make for a relaxing time there. The pool is enclosed by beautiful landscaping which makes it very private. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms up to date. The cottage is laid out in such a way that if bad weather were to force you indoors there is lots of space for everyone to do their thing.

My family and I have had the pleasure of staying at the Lime Cottage several times, It has always been great, and this trip was no exception. Early October is a lovely time to visit the island; beautiful weather and not crowded. Chris and his family are wonderful hosts. He is always available to answer any questions and is so thoughtful and kind. It's also easy to come to the Lime Cottage because everything you need is there (beach towels, linens, beach and pool toys for the kids, etc.). I recommend the Lime Cottage without reservation!!

Felt Like Home!

This was my third trip to anna Maria and I was very pleased with the Lime Cottage rental...The owners thought of everything! Just bring your clothes and food and just about everything you need is provided...including umbrellas by the front door! Thankfully we didn't need them...Beautiful weather except for one day (cloudy)...Three flat screen TVs and a phone handset in each bedroom and the LR...The cabinets were stocked with spices, garbage bags, foil, etc...The neighborhood itself was wonderful...very quiet and it was a very short walk to the beach and we made good use of the beach cart and chairs. After the beach we enjoyed the nice warm pool. Even though Chris and Stephanie live far away, he was always available with a phone call...The week went by much too fast...would definitely go back, but I've decided one week is not enough!

This is a home away from home

I'm reluctant to rave too much about the Lime Cottage because it's already popular and we want to visit again! Owners Chris and Stephanie have thought of everything that a visitor would need. Located about two blocks between great views of the bay and the amazing Bradenton Beach, the Lime Cottage has its own pool, is close to shopping, restaurants, and recreation. My wife and I loved the homelike feel of the cottage, the laid back feel of the town, and Anna Maria Island's proximity to great Florida locations to visit.

Very chilled and comfortable stay

"We had a thoroughly relaxing time here with our toddler. The house is instantly welcoming, well equipped, clean and very comfortable. It is very close to the beach and free trolley bus stop - an excellent location.
There was everything that we needed in the kitchen and we found the owner to be incredibly helpful and very efficient in all our dealings.
I would happily recommend this property and indeed any other property managed by Chris, given the great service he provided."

Experience exceeded our expectations

  • Submitted: Dec 3, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
This was our first trip to the island and a Lime Cottage was better than expected. when we arrived and walked in there was an immediate warm, comfortable feeling and we felt at home. There was nothing we needed to purchase except for perishables. Chris' cofee table book was exceptional as was his information book about the house and island. Having stayed in many rental homes in other locations we can say Chris and Stephanie did this the right way. We were fortunate to have met Chris while we were there and he was a very gracious "host." We have already booked next year as this feels like our home away from home.

Great place to stay

  • Submitted: Dec 3, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
As soon as we walked in we knew it was going to be great. The house was furnished with everything you could need for your stay, except food, drink, and personal stuff. The house was wonderful inside and out and the pool was perfect, clean and the right temperature. With the beach only a couple of blocks away we walked the beach every morning with coffee in hand and even at nite a few times. Watching the sun set was so relaxing, it made us feel great and the fishing right on the beach could not be beat. We only went out to eat a few times to some of the "places" and were not impressed. Maybe not the right time I don't know. Just to tourist oriented. The prices were high and the food was not worth the cost. One place (no names) had a clothes shop you had to go through to get a table and the service was as horrible as the food. I'm sure there are good places to go we just didn't find them. There are some great places to explore around the island and tons to do. The owner was great, he keep in touch and left contact numbers if any problem arose. We had a wonderful time and plan in coming back, that is a first for us. Almost don't want you to read this, we want to keep this place our little secret.
