Great location

  • 4 of 5

This was a cute little cottage that was very convenient to the beach and shops on Pine Ave. We had never stayed on the northern part of Anna Maria before this, and now we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. There isn't as much traffic, so it's much easier to walk around, and it is very quiet. When we weren't at the beach, we were at the pool, which we were lucky to have mostly to ourselves during our week stay. The outside shower was especially useful. Suzanne was very nice and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

The property location is terrific! The beach house was clean as well as the pool area.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived around midnight due to a late flight into Tampa. The owner had kindly left lights on for us and arranged it so we could let ourselves in. We had a good night's sleep on the king-sized mattress. The pillows on the king were a little tall and stiff to our liking, but there were other pillows in the closest that we used and slept comfortably on. As mentioned, the property location is perfect! We walked to the coffee shop for breakfast and lunch a couple times. The walk to the beach is no more than 1 block. You can also walk to the Sandbar, which is our favorite restaurant on Anna Maria. The patio area/pool is very private and very nice. The owner has a tarp over part of the pool, which nicely shaded us from the hot sun. The pool was a great temperature and very clean. We had an pleasant, relaxing stay at this property and would definitely rent from them again.

The property was very clean and just how we expected and in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation here at Anna Maria Island. The location was perfect and we used the free trolley bus service to get around. There are plenty of excellent restaurants within walking distance or by Trolley. Although we did have a car it was not required. This was our first vacation on Anna Maria Island and one day we will return. There were 6 of us staying at the cottage, 4 of us from the UK and 2 friends from Michigan. There was plenty of room for all of us. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool. The property was very clean and the owners were very helpful prior to our vacation.

Cute and cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a cute and cozy cottage. My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary, and it was perfect for us. This property is so close to the beach as well as all the shops and restaurants on Pine. The pool is beautiful and was heated to the perfect temperature. There were plenty of beach chairs. I would definitely recommend this property.

Great little no frills cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just came home from our vacation in AMI. The house was adequate for our needs. Like other reviewers said, it is not a mansion. Just a comfortable little cottage. Close to everything. Love this part of the island. The cottage itself was fine but needs some TLC at this point. The furniture is not the same as in the pictures. The dryer knobs were broken and the yard needs some landscape maintenance. No DVD player and the TV remote doesn't work well at all. But for the money it was perfect. The owners were very easy to communicate with. All in all I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: We have attended to all the matters listed in this review. We pride ourselves in keeping the place up nice. We want our guests to have a great time in our little place. The furniture is different because we redecorated and got new furniture and have not changed our pics. Thank you.

Fabulous Relaxing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It's a wonderful location (& reasonable rates) - so close to the beautiful beach with powdery pure white sand! Lots of stuff to bring to the beach at this rental - chairs, umbrella & kids beach toys. Peaceful & quiet town. We barely used our rental car - walking distance to shops, restaurants, beach, the pier & general store. Even though it was out of season & a lot of shops/restaurants were closed, there was still enough open to have a great experience. The back area w/ pool was gorgeous. The king sized bed is so comfortable!! I need that mattress pad for our own house. :~) Conveniences: washer/dryer, outside shower/foot washing stations & beach supplies. We also saw the woman who did the cleaning - very nice & helpful with finding supplies (like vacuum). Susie was very nice & worked with us to have a later check out time - our plane didn't leave until late at night. Cons: We didn't know how to check in/get the cottage key but luckily someone else was staying in the adjacent house who had the phone number for Susie. The highchair was old & had broken pieces on the tray so we worked around not using one.

Thanks for everything & we hope to come back soon. :~)
