Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to AMI for Memorial Day for years. Our usual place is no longer available which, as it turns out, was a bonus for us because we found this little gem! The House is roomy enough for 4 people, kitchen well-equipped, has extremely comfortable beds and is immaculately clean. The grounds arelike a combo rainforest/golf fairway fronting unspoiled dunes with the spectacular AMI beach beyond. The Owner is next door; most congenial and accommodating, although everything was in perfect order and we didn't need a thing! Planning to return ASAP!

A Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have fallen in love with the quiet north end of Anna Maria Island. Sea Garden cottage is the perfect beach cottage. My husband (the chef) was quite impressed with the quality of the knives and the Calphalon cookware - not to mention access to two grills. The photos on the website are incredible but seeing the cottage, gorgeous screened lanai and the lush backyard in person still amazed us. The manicured grounds are impeccable; we loved looking at all of the wonderful plants, bushes and trees as well as the expansive lawn. We appreciated the convenience of having 4 bikes at our disposal and enjoyed them several times. The path to the beach felt like an adventure each time we walked it (many times!) and we enjoyed the wonderful sunsets nearly every night.

We felt at home from the minute we arrived and were very comfortable. We both slept better than ever. We are hoping to rent again in January 2017. January is a great time to be in FL especially if you are from the Northeast. The warm sun is out frequently and temps are perfect for walking, biking and finding a nice corner to sun bathe.

We spoke with the office (Kari) a couple of times with questions and got to meet her on our last morning. Questions were answered promptly and courteously and we enjoyed meeting and chatting with her before we left. Ashley always replied promptly and professionally to any questions we had as our initial plans were being made.

In short - we LOVED Sea Garden and its neighborhood!

Perfect little house on Anna Maria

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on Anna Maria for years and this is the most wonderful place we have ever stayed. It is very clean and spacious and perfectly appointed. There is nothing you need that isn't provided. The backyard is stunningly beautiful and the beach was not crowded even during the busy summer months. Just an exceptional little house. We will definitely rent here again.

“Memory Maker”

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing my family to share your little piece of paradise. My husband and I could ask for a better place to celebrate our 23rd anniversary with our family. It was truly a relaxing vacation with the conveniences of home. I had my family describe what they thought about this wonder beach cottage. Here is what they had to say!

“The house made our trip enjoyable. The rooms were nice, clean, and even though it was only a 2 bedroom cottage, it seemed to be abundant with space. “

“Really enjoyed the privacy of the beach! The house was beautifully decorated and we had a very nice welcome from Steve.”

“I really liked staying at this house. I loved how we had our own private part of the beach and how the house was so clean and spacious- It was beautifully decorated. I also like having the bikes there so I could go for a ride in the afternoons.”

The poem was written by my son!

Thank you again and looking forward to renting this cottage again.

First Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 10 month old daughters and I just returned home from our first family vacation. We stayed at Sea Gardens and were so happy and comfortable at this little beach cottage. From the moment we arrived we were impressed at how lovely the cottage was. The condition of the home was impeccable, and all the rooms were far larger in person than they appeared in the pictures. The landscaping was beautiful, and we loved how accessible the beach was. My favorite part of the home was the back screened in patio. My husband and I ate dinner almost every night by candle light on that patio. The memories we made on this vacation will stay with me the rest of my life (one of my daughters crawled for the first time in the Sea Gardens cottage!) We can't wait for our next trip!
