The patio extends the length of the yard, with areas to grill, eat and lounge in the sun or under the awning. Take a refreshing swim in your heated pool, or make a short stroll to the beach, just a block away.
Inside, you will find the kitchen is stocked with whatever you need to make vacations easier. The dining table seats 8, so you can gather to share all of your vacation plans, play games, and enjoy special moments. Sleep in comfort in a king, 2 queen beds and 2 twin beds. The Master suite has a walk-in shower and 2 sinks as well as an outdoor exit.
Just a few blocks away is the Rod and Reel Pier, where you can fish, bird watch, or dine on fresh seafood. With 7 miles of uninterrupted beaches, there is no shortage of silky sand and pristine waters. Bring along a camera to capture the most breathtaking sunsets you've ever seen. If you are an early riser, you can catch the sunrise over the Tampa Bay Bridge from the Pier. Take a Trolley to shopping or restaurants - it's free and runs from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
We had a great stay in this home. It was clean and had easy access to bay and gulf beaches. We enjoyed the pool and grill outside. The two rooms with queen beds were warm at night was the only drawback. It was a great place for the family to all be together while eating, cooking, playing games on table, or watching tv. We just had a wonderful time! Best shelling at Bradenton Beach!
I really enjoyed my stay at the starfish cottage. The house is of nice size with a huge master bedroom with large flat screen tv . The showers were nice but we ran out of hot water rather quickly. But hey you're on Anna Maria Island who cares about a little luke warm water. The kitchen had everything you will need to feed your group but the only extra's were salt and pepper. The living room was comfy and there were many books to read. Now for the crowning jewel... That back yard ! Completely gorgeous beautiful plants and a heated (I went in February) pool with no trace of any chlorine smell. We were close enough to the pier that before going to town to grocery shop I walked to get coffee in morning and at night we had dinner at said pier which was great. There are shops everywhere a half mile up the street. Was able to get a massage and pedicure in a moments notice. Just turn right and walk to the end of street cross a footbridge and there are the most beautiful beaches as far as the eye can see. I will definitely be going back. Oh yeah must not forget a very important bit of information... The beds... They are so comfortable and the sheets are of such high quality you don't want to get out of bed. I had one issue come up about the umbrella over the outdoor table. texted owner and a new one was installed the very next day. super satisfied.
