Welcome to Bluefin Cottage on Anna Maria Island. Completely remodeled in 2013, this duplex is comprised of two ground floor cottages close to the beach in a quiet residential neighborhood. The Bluefin Cottage side includes a private heated pool (not shared), hot/cold outdoor shower, lush landscaping throughout and a grill for the back patio necessary for a great evening by the pool. In the garage, you will find a wagon, umbrella, and beach chairs for trips to the sugary white sand beach only two houses away! Enjoy early morning walks, fun in the water and sand, or stunning sunsets during your stay.
Inside, you will find 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms for maximum privacy. Each bedroom is equipped with a wall mounted flat screen television with cable. WiFi is also available throughout the home. The master bedroom includes a king bed with a high quality mattress and wonderfully comfortable sheets to ensure you will receive a good night's rest and be ready to hit the beach in the morning. The room includes a master suite walk-in shower with a pebble floor, a unique feature not always found in your vacation rental. The guest bedroom faces the front of the home and has two twin beds with an adjoining full bath. The full bath connects to the dining/living space as well for guests to use during an evening around the kitchen bar. Inside the bathroom the stacked washer and dryer is available for any laundry that is necessary during your stay.
The open living space includes a fully equipped kitchen with many of the small appliances and tools you would expect to find in your own home, plus table settings for 6. The kitchen counter wraps around the cooking space to allow for easy conversation during preparation of snacks or meals. Nearby you will find a dining table for 4 - perfect for home cooked meals or a place to read you morning paper. The living room is equipped with a large screen television, couch and chairs to relax after a long day at the beach or running around the island. From the living area you can view the pool through the slider door. Kick your feet up and relax after another day in paradise.
We hope you'll come visit us and enjoy all that Anna Maria Island has to offer. You will find that we own and manage all of the properties included in Lizzie Lu's Island Retreat which allows us to stay in tune with the properties needs and keep it looking fantastic for years to come. We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will make Lizzie Lu's your home away from home!
We were happy enough to be one of the first renters of this charming house with beach feeling. The location is very close to the beach, just past two houses and no crossing of a main street is required, there is anyway only very little traffic on that part of Gulf Drive. I enjoyed the nice morning runs, up on Gulf Drive to the Pier and then around the tip of the Island back along the beach, accompagnied by the pelicans. We liked the remoteness of the location although the next big Walmart in Bradenton is just 15 mins away by car.
Ben was present just a few minutes after our arrival and he was very helpful with everything. We liked the App for the iPhone from Lizzie Lu helping us to find good restaurants etc.
The house is very well and modern equiped with a full kitchen, washing machine/tumbler, wifi, TV, etc. Even board games are available should the weather be not so nice. We did not miss anything at all as the owners obviously seem to be experienced with the guests wishes.
The small, heated pool was just right for our family with two little kids. We were overwhelmed by the beach equipment provided including umbrella, beach chairs, towels and even a gorilla cart to carry everything to the beach.
We are looking forward to come back.

The home is located 2 houses from the beach access, there are no roads to cross. Simply walk out your door to the end of the street and you will find yourself on Anna Maria Island Beaches at the Gulf of Mexico!
