Great cottage in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time during my stay in this property. It was clean and recently painted. Very cute décor and had all needed kitchen items. The location was perfect. It was close enough to walk to beach, stores, restaurants, churches, and more. However, it was far enough away to not be overwhelmed with traffic and noise. It was very quiet. The owner was easy to work with and easy to reach when needed. I will definitely stay here again!

Much needed relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home was so perfect for our two night weekend beach trip. Cindy was very enjoyable to work with, quick to respond especially on day of arrival. We were able to walk to the gulf beach access but since we brought a 10'x10' canvas canopy we parked in the loading area to bring all our stuff onto the beach which made it a lot easier. The cottage is located in the perfect spot. The Sandbar restaurant is great (especially if you get clear weather), there's an ice cream shop close by that is delicious, and many other nice spots to check out if you can pry yourself off the gorgeous white sand, clear water beach!

This cottage is also a duplex which I believe Cindy has a separate listing for so we will definitely go back with a few more friends next time!

Thank you again so much Cindy!

Anna Maria island getaway treat

  • 5 of 5

Great property, perfect location. Although not on the beach it is just a couple blocks away. We walked everywhere, from the beach to the pier and all points in between. The house was clean upon arrival and had everything we needed. Cindy was great and responded quickly to any questions we had before, during and after our arrival/stay. Would definitely recommend!

Fantastic location and very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had never stayed on Anna Maria Island before and feel very lucky to have found this "Charming cottage." We arrived after dark so we did not have our bearings on the island, but noticed immediately upon entering the house that it was spotlessly clean! We were comfortable as soon as we walked in. The next morning we were pleasantly surprised to find out we had stumbled upon the best location imaginable. We were 2 1/2 blocks from the Gulf and about the same to the Bay. We could walk to breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks and shopping - and we did! The home has a nice big fenced in back yard and our little dog thoroughly enjoyed being able to stretch his legs without a leash when we weren't exploring the neighborhood together. Cindy was a pleasure to work with! Thank you Cindy for sharing this lovely home!
