Anna Maria Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 Master Suites, 1 King and 1 Queen & Two Twins

If you are looking for that Old Florida feel, Beach Basket is located on Oak Ave which dead ends to the white sand beaches and the perfectly clear waters of Anna Maria Island. You are just 5 homes or a 53 second walk to relaxation and sunshine! Built in 1920, this home was restored recently by the owner who is a professional decorator keeping with the classic cottage look. The detail in this home is incredible, from ceiling accents to bead board cabinets with glass doors to the comfortable furnishings by the Pink Pineapple.

The beachy feel continues into both the king master suite with a seating area that leads to the bright and sunny master bath and the queen suite which has a private entrance to the pool area where you will find citrus trees including an Avocado tree and rich tropical landscaping.

Having an occasional guest or bringing the kids? The air conditioned sleeping porch with 2 twins is a perfect place for them or a perfect nook for you to relax and enjoy a good book and a frozen cocktail! Beach Basket is one of our most popular homes so book well in advance to find out why!!

Beach Basket Review

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 25, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
My husband and I would have given the Beach Basket 4 stars if it was not for the dirty floors ( our feet were black from walking on the hardwood floors the first day ) dog poop in the backyard, and 2 bikes that were advertised, but had flat tires :(

Owner's Response: Carol,

Thank you for your feedback. I am disappointed with your review and I do apologize as we do try to do everything possible to keep our guests happy!

Had we been aware of the other problems we certainly would have taken care of them immediately as I thought we had done when we offered to rent bikes for you at our cost.

Our intent is to never let these things slip by us but we sincerely hope our guests will notify us of problems on their arrival so we do have the opportunity to rectify any issues immediately.

Please accept our apologies!

Loved your charming cottage!

Thank you for a lovely home to stay and relax! My husband, daughter and I had never been to AMI before this trip so we didn't know what to expect, but we were excited to be staying at Beach Basket because of the pictures online. Well, we weren't disappointed in the least! It was so charming! As soon as we opened the door the sleeping porch invited us in and our daughter knew right away that she would be spending her time reading out there. Beach Basket has been so beautifully decorated that we enjoyed staying in more than going out! When we did go out, the short walk to the beach (just a few steps away) was wonderful, very quiet and private. The backyard, with its tropical flowers and landscaping, was a place we all enjoyed. The pool was AMAZING, heated and just the right size! The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Staying here allowed our stressed out family to calm down, slow down and RELAX. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to spend our first visit on AMI at Beach Basket. We will be back!

What a lovely beach cottage!!

  • Submitted: Sep 4, 2013

We really enjoyed our visit. Had delicious food at many of the fine restaurants in the area. Some of our favorites-The Rod and Reel Pier-The Sand Bar and of course Ginny and Jane E's. Hard to resist those cinnamon rolls!
The early morning walks on the beach were inspirational and the sunsets were beautiful. Leaned a little about the sea turtles. Fascinating! Would love to return.

Great stay at Cute Beach Cottage on AMI

Thanks again for a lovely stay in this adorable beach cottage! The close proximity to the beach was perfect... Just a few houses to the beautiful white sand of AMI. The kids enjoyed how we could quickly walk back and forth from beach to pool or back to the house for some lunch/snacks. It is a great location! The house has everything you need from beach toys and chairs to all the in House amenities needed for a comfortable stay. We are a family of five, ,so we also used the sleeping porch for our girls room and that worked out quite well! Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Tami,
I think the feature that everyone enjoys the most is the closeness to the beach but thanks for noticing all the other amenities as well.

Another lovely stay at Beach Basket! Many happy memories made for all-especially for our 2 little ones. Beautiful sunrises, early afternoons playing in the sand, late afternoon swimming in the pool, sunset walks on the beach-capped with a stop at Dips for our daily dose of ice cream = perfection! ?
We love your sweet and cozy cottage and this glorious island! We hope to return again very soon! Thank you!
Restaurants we loved: Relish Café, Island Creperie and Waterfront. YUM!!

We love this grand “lil cottage” by the beach. It’s beautiful here!!! Love the Beach Basket!! My family and I (Mom, Dad, Husband and my two boys 4&2) had the best stay. The bed is amazing in the master bedroom. We appreciate the way we had everything we needed even down to beach hats and buckets/shovels for the kids! My first visit to Anna Maria Island, and am leaving with great memories! Hope to return again next year! Thank you!
Love,

Our 2 + month stay on Ann Maria.....

  • Submitted: May 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
was once again a wonderful respite. We have thoroughly enjoyed Beach Basket and marvel at our daughter’s (Karen) marvelous capacity to decorate and furnish her (& Ed’s) lovely Oak Ave. cottage. It has been a real treat being able to see our family regularly while not feeling we are imposing! Many thanks for sharing Beach Basket with us!
Much love,
