About Tuck Wieler

Travel is our passion. We first visited Anna Maria Island four years ago at the recommendation of several people from our home city. We had never heard of it - like so many people. Anna Maria 'had us at hello' from our very first day on the island. Was it was the seven miles of sugary soft, white beaches? Was it the crystal clear and emerald Gulf of Mexico waters, or the incredible hospitality of both locals and fellow vacationers? Maybe it was the fact that there are mostly independent, locally owned and operated restaurants and shops - each of them unique, fun and inspiring. No matter what it was that ultimately captured our attention, we set out on the crazy idea of owning a sliver of paradise. We started looking at houses immediately, but like anything worth having, it didn't happen right away. Four years after first visiting Anna Maria, we stumbled upon Cozy Cottage, loved it, bought it and started making it our own. Our goal is simple. It is to have our Cozy Cottage to feel like your 'home' away from home - a place you want to return to year after year. We want our place in paradise to be your paradise. So, what are you waiting for? Inquire today. Paradise is waiting!

Tuck Wieler purchased this house in 2013

Why Tuck Wieler chose Anna Maria Island

Anna Maria Island is one of the most unique and beautiful islands in the U.S. AMI boasts beautiful beaches of sugary white sand and clear emerald waters. Once a 'secret' hideaway, USA Today, NY Times, NY Post and Coastal Living have offered rave reviews of AMI over the last few years; and Forbes recently named Anna Maria #3 in their 15 of America's Prettiest Towns. Finally, Anna Maria Island was ranked as the '3rd Best Island in the US'. We don't disagree!

Anna Maria is a 7 mile slice of paradise, The cottages and bungalows, locally owned eateries and shops that dot this tropical paradise give that 'Old Florida' feeling of ultimate comfort and relaxation. Our Cozy Cottage just happens to be one of those cottages that mirrors Anna Maria Island's atmosphere - quietly situated and wonderfully appointed yet close to everything you want to enjoy!

Both Tampa(home of the Tampa Rays MLB and Buccaneers NFL) and Sarasota are just a short drive away offering easy international airport access to Anna Maria, and major attractions such as Busch Gardens, Universal Studios, Disney World and Sea World are anywhere from an hour to 2 hours away from Cozy Cottage. You have plenty to do all around as you can see, but once you settle into Anna Maria's laid-back living, you're likely to melt right into paradise and leave your cares behind you.

What makes this house unique

Cozy Cottage is a charming, and carefully updated, single-level, coastal cottage perfectly located on the most desired North end of Anna Maria. Perfect for families or couples, both young and young at heart, Cozy Cottage is a short and safe(no busy roads to cross) one block walk from the pristine, soft and white beaches, where you can relax and walk Anna Maria’s 7 miles of beautiful beaches, and enjoy the spectacular Gulf sunsets. Pine Avenue's shopping, great local restaurants and the historic Anna Maria Pier area are all within easy walking or biking distance from Cozy Cottage. Contact us today. Paradise is waiting for you...

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cozy cottage was charming! Beautifully appointed, great amenities...made everything so easy! We loved every second and enjoyed grilling by the pool, swimming, walking to the beach, and just lazy days together as a family! We'll be back for sure, but for a longer visit! Owner was awesome - gracious and helpful! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home!

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends were here for a graduation celebration and it couldn't have been better. The beach was amazing and we used the bikes constantly for errands, sightseeing and going to restaurants. The cottage had everything we needed.

Great house, PERFECT location

  • 5 of 5

This house was ideal for our small family (2 kids, ages 9 and 13). The house is actually very spacious, including an open plan kitchen + living area. The pool + large patio was a great place to spend the afternoon after a morning on the sand. Best of all, the location is absolutely perfect: the beach is about a 3 minute walk, and Pine St is maybe a 10 min walk, or an even shorter bike or car ride. This was our 3rd trip to Anna Maria so we knew what we were looking for when we booked Tuck's house, and we got exactly what we were after! Very highly recommended.

Beautiful, well-maintained, with many "extras"!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best rental properties my family has ever stayed at. Tuck was extremely hospitable and attentive to our questions and needs. He checked in on us the evening we arrived to make sure the cottage met our expectations. The bikes, pool toys, beach carts, chairs, etc. were wonderful additions to the beautiful property. The beach was very close, but I personally enjoyed the luxurious pool area as much, if not more. The location was quiet and peaceful. Thank you for opening up your lovely home to my son, sister, brother-in-law and me!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you for the kind review! Our entire goal for self-managing our own rental home was to execute the type of vacation experience we believe all rental companies "should", yet, often fail to deliver. We are so glad we did that for you all and we hope to see you return to Cozy Cottage in the near future!

The "cozy cottage" says it all. It is a beautiful house at a convenient location. The house has everything you would need to enjoy a relaxing vacation. The Weiler's do a great job with communicating all information that will make your vacation stress-free and enjoyable. We can't wait to return.
