                                                            Perfect location for a beach getaway

                                                            Sarah W.

                                                            We rented this cozy cottage over Labor Day to celebrate our daughter's 13th birthday with a few of her best friends. It was the perfect safe location for them to enjoy the beach. The beach was surprisingly uncrowded, the backyard spacious and perfect for pizza and burgers. And the cozy house was surprisingly accommodating for multiple sleeping options. Jan was terrific; we didn't meet Andy except to check out, and he couldn't have been more friendly and kind. All in all, a perfect birthday weekend. Thank you!

                                                            We'll definitely be back


                                                            This is our second year staying here for spring break with our kids and we will be back! The location of this house is perfect for us as our friends all stay close by.

                                                            The house itself is very clean and spacious. Filled with just about everything we need for our stay! Absolutely love the extra fridge/freezer out back, perfect for extra ice and food/beverage overflow. Love having a washer and dryer as well, makes it really nice to come home with clean clothes.

                                                            There is an extra shed as well with some great beach things.

                                                            There is a really nice porch out back with a grill, loved sitting out there in the mornings eating breakfast and dinner in the evenings.

                                                            The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because there are a few things I wish were different or that really should be addressed. I do wish that there was more than just 1 TV, which is located in the living room where our son sleeps, so at the end of the night we can all relax and unwind before bed. More importantly though, in order to get hot water in the showers, you need to actually put the handle in the "cold" position. The light switch in the main bath is a bit odd as well, there is a big panel for the light and fan, but the actual light switch is further in the bathroom. The extra bedroom doesn't seem to get any of the air conditioning and gets very warm. I really think those things need to be addressed.

                                                            On a positive note, Andy, the manager, is wonderful and is always there to help with anything we have needed, shout out to Andy!

                                                            Overall, we absolutely love staying here and will be back for years to come! (Maybe they will even install an extra TV ! ;) )

                                                            Great cottage & perfect stay on Anna Maria Island!

                                                            Pam W.

                                                            Great cottage and perfect stay on Anna Maria Island and the location of this property is amazing! It’s located right in the middle of everything you need and not crowded at all. We had a blast spending a week at this Old Floridian Cottage. The cottage was clean, very nicely decorated, has nice furniture, appliances, washer and dryer, it even has an extra refrigerator, which for us, was wonderful! We were able to keep all of our drinks and ice in one fridge and kept all our food items in the other fridge. It accommodated six adults and one child comfortably. This property even has a very nice storage shed where you will find extra beach chairs and other beach accessories. The outdoor shower and the water spout was nice to use and great to wash off all the beach accessories. We enjoyed our evenings on the patio after coming back from the beach, where we grilled and relaxed and also, visited with nice, friendly neighbor. Andy, the maintenance man was very helpful and nice too. The beaches and water is absolutely gorgeous on Anna Maria Island, the prettiest we've seen on the gulf side and the east coast. 12th Street has easy in and out access and is not a busy street because it dead ends. Everyone there is very friendly and even when we crossed the street going to the beach the traffic would stop and let us cross. The distance to the beach from this cottage is less than a couple of minutes. The free trolley that runs up and down Anna Maria Island and picks up every twenty minutes is very fun and enjoyable for sightseeing and convenient for shopping too. Driving our own vehicle to places was a good experience, we couldn’t believe how good the traffic was, and we never had to sit in traffic. It’s not like the other places we have been to where you sit in bumper to bumper slow moving traffic and you dread even going out to eat or shopping…not here, for us driving around on Anna Maria Island was amazing and enjoyable! The walking distance to restaurants, bars, shopping and much more is amazing as well. The owners and property manger are great to work with provided great customer service! This property is located at the perfect spot for lots of fun things to do and we had everything we needed at this cottage. We definitely had a great vacation and enjoyed our fun and relaxing stay and are looking forward to returning next year to Old Florida.

                                                            Our Winter Home

                                                            We came back "home" this year for our getaway from the snow and ice. We love this little house. It was perfect for us and for our dog, who appreciated her domain.

                                                            It was clean and neat, with all the amenities we could ask for - and there is not a better location in AMI.
