|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Cozy enough for honeymooners but room for a family of eight, you’re not going to feel any guilt about indulging in a vacation at this holiday cottage rental. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms, all decorated in cheerful colors and outfitted with premium linens, spread out across 1,250 square feet. Tech savvy members of the family will have wireless internet and a flat screen TV to keep them feeling connected, while readers can enjoy the living room’s plush seating. And when was the last time you had a long, hot bubble bath? A roomy tub in the guest bath give you the chance to lock the door, light some candles, and finally get away from it all.
And wait until you see the patio – that’s the real icing on top! Get on your sunscreen, grab a book, and make yourself comfortable on one of several lounge chairs. The pool is heated so no matter when you visit Sweet Retreat Cottage, you’ll be able to slip into sparkling, clear waters comfortably. Show off the day’s catch before throwing it on the propane grill for dinner. Or get adventurous and try grilled fruit like pineapple or peaches.
Eventually though, you’re going to need some salty to go with the sweet. This holiday cottage is just across the street from the Gulf of Mexico and the powdered sugar soft sands we’re so proud of in Anna Maria Island.(look for access sign) Not only does this mean you can walk to and from the ocean whenever you feel like it, it also means you have a front row ticket to our famous sunsets. Watch the clouds become heavy and golden as honey from your pool deck and take one last lap before bed.
Being on the north end of the island, you’ll also be close to fishing on Anna Maria Island Pier and the Rod and Reel Pier. Or give yourself the ultimate sugar rush with one of the decadent and double sized brownies from the Island General Store on Pine Ave. For a taste of genuine Anna Maria fare, stop into the Shiny Fish Emporium for sand dollar cookies and bubble ice cream.
Be careful though, at some point you’re going to look around and realize you’ve devoured every minute of your vacation.
