Peppertree Cottage is a fantastic beachside getaway for two couples or a small family looking for tropical privacy in a beach side location. Hidden away at the end of a quiet, dead end residential street, the cottage is beautifully appointed and has all new kitchen and laundry appliances. A sparkling, private in-ground pool was just installed in the Fall of 2012 and is for the exclusive use of the guests of the cottage.
The Gulf of Mexico beach access is only a couple houses away. There are no roads to cross in order to enjoy some of the most pristine beaches and glorious sunsets found on the west coast of Florida.
This beach cottage is bright, colorful and airy with a single level open floor plan, lots of windows and comfortable furnishings. Sit out back at poolside on the patio and enjoy your morning coffee in lush privacy. Enjoy the sunsets at the beach and be home in moments.
There is a detached Studio Apartment next door to the cottage on the property (same owners) if you have a larger group and are in need of an extra private king bed with bath and kitchenette. Ask about rate reductions when renting together. Peppertree Studio is VRBO listing #392237. Use of the pool is for the exclusive use of Cottage guests.
During the summer months loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs on these beaches and you will likely see dolphins and/or manatees. The city of Anna Maria has no fast food restaurants, no traffic lights and no high rises. It’s Old Florida at its best, when things were tranquil and living was easy. Whether your goal is to finish that good book you’ve been reading, stroll some quaint island shops or gather your collection of seashells, it’s easily accomplished here.
Nature lovers will be amazed at the natural habitat of Anna Maria. Whether you’re a bird watcher, shell collector, fishing enthusiast, or master gardener, you’ll find what you’re looking for here. Our sugar sand beaches are strewn with seashells and are well populated by shore birds, sea turtles and dolphins. Take a minute and picture yourself napping on a beach towel on the warm sand by the Gulf of Mexico, all to the gentle sound of the surf. We look forward to your stay.

My husband, Roger and I (Katy) have lived in Bradenton for 28 years. Our children have grown up spending a lot of time on this island and loving it. Watching dolphins, manatees and pelicans quickly became our favorite pastime.
We bought our first beach house in 2000. As time went on, and with the addition of our grandchildren, we outgrew it and were fortunate to find The Peppertree Cottage and Studio. The quiet street and gulf beach access, one house away, sold us. With the house being on ground level it’s also more comfortable. Now comes the next generation’s opportunity to fall in love with this incredible island.
Every time we arrive on Anna Maria it’s like entering a different world. The charming island atmosphere completely relaxes you. Everyone who visits has a hard time leaving and immediately makes plans to return. The free trolley is a real plus and allows visitors to see the entire island with someone else at the wheel.
