Overview

About the property

Ready to Relax in 937 Square Feet of Paradise?

This two-bedroom, two-bath vacation rental is located on the quiet north end of Anna Maria Island.

Whispering Pines is just three houses from one of the most beautiful beach accesses on the island. This classic 1920's beach cottage has been lovingly restored. The original wood molding, fireplace, high ceilings, and wood floors throughout retain the classic cottage feel. An updated kitchen with bead board cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances is user friendly but with the charm of the old style. A queen in the master, twins in the second bedroom and a sofa bed allow for six guests. The two bathrooms have been updated and a new washer and dryer are just off the kitchen. All linens provided by our professional linen service.

When you are ready to explore the island, you can hop on board the free AMI trolley that runs daily along the island and has a stop just a brief walk from your door.

Contact us to reserve today and remember to ask us about our monthly discounted rates!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Whispering Pines is an updated and classic Florida home. We traveled with one young child and we all had more than enough space to relax. The beautiful shores of the beach are just steps away. The house came furnished with everything you could need for relaxing at the house as well as heading out to the beach for the day. Beach towels, coolers, beach chairs and an umbrella were all available to use during the stay. The awesome staff at Coastal Cottages of AMI were very easy to work with - even when booking shortly before our arrival. We would highly recommend this location to anyone and look forward to returning!

Loved it. We will rent again.

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this place from the moment we drove in the driveway. The location is excellent - short (3 lots) to the beach and a nice walk to all of the places we like to eat. The beach chairs are the best I've ever sat in. The cottage's interior decor was beachy but not kitschy. All of the rooms and the outside are top notch. We would love to stay there again.

Perfect setting.

  • 5 of 5

Interesting older cottage, steps to the best beach spot on the Island, The cottage is so comfortable, clean and attractive we felt relaxed and at home right away. Spaces available from porch and living room to big table to roomy kitchen were so accommodating. Beds very comfortable. Tropical trees and plant life provide an exotic privacy border to nest the cottage into it's secluded spot between other homes. Best of all, it is just steps away from what we feel was the nicest, most remote stretch of beach on the island. We rented 2 paddle boards and glided right over fevers of sting rays and schools of tarpon-- breathtaking. We walked down the beach with Manatee, and enjoyed pristine sand and clear water for an island paradise! At the end of the day, festive eateries were an easy walk away, without a need to drive. What a spot!

This family, elderly and dog friendly vacation rental is located on Florida's Anna Maria Island, a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico south of Tampa Bay. Comprised of three cities—Anna Maria on the north end, Holmes Beach in the middle and Bradenton Beach to the south—AMI is one of the only places where the 'old Florida' charm still exists. The Island has every convenience needed, including multiple award winning restaurants, including Beach Bistro, Sandbar Restaurant, Sign of the Mermaid, and Waterfront Restaurant. There is also plenty of shopping available along historic Pine Avenue in Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach's historic Bridge Street. With the beach and the Bay just minutes away from your front door, there is plenty to do in the water. Kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, jet skiing, and parasailing are the more popular activities. With the Island only seven miles long, there is no need to drive when almost everything is within walking or biking distance. Plus, there is a free trolley service that runs the length of the Island every day. AMI truly has something for everyone, and everyone who visits falls in love with it. We are sure you will too! So, reserve your vacation home today . . . seven miles of pristine white beaches and beautiful sunsets await you!
