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.
A NOTE ABOUT HEATED POOLS: Since running pool heat is a very expensive proposition for our owners, they ask that we collect $100 per week (plus tax) from guests requesting the pool at their rental property be heated.

Great location! Walk to beach & wonderful pool. Lots of pool toys, beach chairs & wagon!
Was perfect for family-2 teenagers, 1 toddler & 4 adults.

Great family week
This house in close proximity to the beach as well as the iconic Rod and Reel restaurant served our family well. The adequate kitchen and gas grill made for some fine seafood meals at home, and it was an easy walk to Anna Maria village. Pool was perfect. No problems with WiFi.
Hi Mary! Thank you for your review. We're so pleased you had a great family week at Starfish Cottage. Food is one of the best parts of any vacation, we think, whether it's made at home with local ingredients or at iconic establishments like the Rod and Reel. We hope to see you again soon! -Ed & Candy, Owners, BeachRentals.mobi

Clean and convenient
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!
We are so thankful for your review and glad that you enjoyed your stay. If you should ever have any issues with the temperature inside your rental property and need assistance with the thermostat, please feel free to contact our 24/7 guest help line. We look forward to having you again next year! --Candy and Ed, Owners, BeachRentals
Great house near 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.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your kind words! Customer service is a priority for us and we always are glad to help guests with anything that might make their experience better. Anna Maria is one of the best places in the world to come for a getaway, and we look forward to having you again next year. –Candy and Ed, Owners, BeachRentals
