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...

Very clean and cozy beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Tuck was great to rent from. The cottage was clean and close to the beach and Pine Ave. The backyard pool was private with beautiful landscaping. He provided great recommendations for things to see and places to eat. Overall the cottage was top notch and everything my family was looking for. Would definitely stay again! Thumbs up across the board.

Hurricane Hermine 2016

  • 4 of 5

We planned our vacation a long time ago and had to face the hurricane. We were very fortunate to be in this lovely comfortable home. It is everything pictured and more. Tuck was so nice to deal with and extremely responsive. Even though we lacked sunshine for several of the days we were still were able to enjoy the pool with our daughters and 3 year old grandson. We hope to go back one day.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review! I'm surprised you have given this vacation even a "4" star review based on the weather produced by Hermine. If we could only control the weather! We're just glad you found our support to be proactive and immediate; and our home to be a perfect place to ride out the storm! We would welcome you back any time you want to return to Cozy Cottage.

Amazing Villa in an equally amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This villa was everything we had anticipated. What you see in the photo's is exactly how it is when you walk through the front door. The outside area is lovely with an amazing pool and there is always somewhere bathed in sunshine and somewhere to relax in the shade. Everything you need is there for you - the owners have thought every detail through exceptionally well. The close proximity to the wonderful beach is a big plus and again everything you need for a trip to the beach is ready for you to use. Anna Maria Island has to be one of the most beautiful places I have been to and the sunsets are to die for. We had an amazing family holiday and would certainly love to return one day. The owners were very helpful prior to booking and updating us prior to our arrival.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you all enjoyed your stay and returned home safely! We've tried to think of everything and glad you feel that way. For all of our potential guests, we will have all new furniture which includes a large sectional with Queen sleeper, new chairs and other furnishing which will expand seating/lounging. As always, we are determined to make Cozy Cottage one of the best maintained homes on the island. Thanks so much for the kind review and we hope to see you at Cozy Cottage again soon!
