Cuddlefish Cove- Beach retreat on Marina Drive.
average rating of 4.75 based on 4 reviews

We had a great vacation here

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful house and a good location with respect to the beach, about 10 minutes walk away. Car required.

All questions we had was sorted quikly.

The reason for not giving 5 stars is that we prefer king size beds, a few things were broken, but it was of minor importance as we had a wonderful stay.

Recommend this house.

March Break 2012 Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We visited CuddleFish Cove from the referral of another family. We visited Florida last March break and spend a few hectic days at Disney before driving to Anna Maria Island. The house exceeded our expectations. It is beautiful, clean and spacious and if anything looks better then the pictures. There is 2 large spacious bedrooms on the main floor. One has a queen bed with the most amazing shower ( multiple heads)- the other bedroom has twin beds and a large enjoining bathroom. Upstairs there is a master suite with another large bathroom with a large shower. All bedrooms have TV's. The main floor is very spacious and was perfect for our family with 2 small kids age 6 and 8. The kitchen is bright and has everything you need, including laundry. Most days we had breakfast and lunch in and ate dinner out. There is a large screen tv and a library with movies ( you can also rent on the island) as well as wifi access. The pool is very nice and they have loungers around the deck area. Many afternons after spending the morning at the beach I would lay on a lounger while the kids swam.. perect way to end a day.

The beach is 5-7 min walk away, very accessible and beyond beautiful. The beaches have white sand and plenty of room for the kids to run and play. The island itself is beautiful, quite and quaint. We would venture out to Genny and Janies for breakfast which I highly recommend! For dinner we ate a couple of time at the Sand Bar. We had a table basically on the beach and could see the sunset- it was awesome- true florida!!! We had a fantastic time and would definately rent this same property again.

The Cuddlefish Experience

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home and a great place to visit. I was there for a few days with the girls,no husbands and no children. It was just what we all needed, We ate at some great places along the beach, shopped at the outlet mall in Ellenton (a few times!!!), walked along the beach and swam in the ocean. The weather was perfect. Its location is great if you arrive via air into Tampa - very easy to get to. Cuddlefish Cove has all you would need for a great get a way for a family or just chillin with friends - enough privacy for everyone.

It truly could not have been more idyllic. Would definately go there again.

Girls Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our Girls Week Away at Cuddlefish Cove. The house is bright and modernly equipped with an beautiful pool to splash around in. The 3 bedrooms accomodated all 5 of us girls perfectly. We were only minutes away from the beautiful almost virgin beaches on either side of the island. We especially enjoyed the local restaurants where we went for brunch and dined at a different one almost every night. The sunsets were gorgeous! I have recommended Cuddlefish Cove to all my friends, and we are definately coming back.
