About Alex & Elena

We are a family of designers. You'll feel it reflected in every detail of our Happy Island Cottage.

We love to travel to exotic destinations, mostly tropical ;)

Alex & Elena purchased this house in 2012

Why Alex & Elena chose Anna Maria Island

We were looking for a vacation home for a long time until we found and fell in love with our Happy Island Cottage on Anna Maria Island. The location was just perfect with beautiful relaxing beaches and friendly and casual atmosphere. The house was perfect as well with its modern design and a wealth of new features. It was full of light and each time we were there it was making us feel just happy. We were getting same kind of reaction from all of our friends and guests who were staying there with us. So it was an easy decision for us to name the house “Happy Island Cottage”.

What makes this house unique

Now a few more details about the house. It has a nice, tropical and private backyard with a heated pool, a spacious outdoors seating area and a brand new grill. On the interior the house is decorated with love and style. Each one of the three bedrooms is spacious and has its own tropical character. Two bedrooms have king size beds, the third has a set of twin beds. The dining and living areas are very comfortable and furnished with brand new furniture. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped with all new appliances. Every woman staying in this house will appreciate the laundry room with a set of high capacity and high efficiency LG washer and dryer.

The Happy Island Cottage is located only 400 steps from the beach and 200 steps from marina, where you can dock your boat or book a fishing or a sunset trip, or rent a kayak. The main island shopping plaza is located two blocks away, so you don't have to drive to get to the restaurants, shops and bars.

Overall, staying at the Happy Island Cottage is a truly relaxing experience that will make your vacation feel longer and more happy.

Excellent , ten stars

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that my family and I decided to rent one of the Alex's properties. The first time, we were surprised for all the amenities and conditions provided for Alex in that first property, but this second time the house was so perfect and everything was so good that I don't know if there is anything that could be better, simply, it will be impossible. To be sure, we are going to return next year and see what another surprise he will have for us. Congratulations Alex, you know how to make your guests happy.

Great Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for two weeks while on Anna Maria Island and loved every minute of it. We have 4 kids and everyone fit comfortably. There was lots of room for socializing in the kitchen, the dining area, as well as the front room. It was exactly how they describe it. We spent lots of time in the backyard grilling and swimming and eating at the table back there almost every meal. The table is shaded by the deck and several trees in the backyard. The free trolley was nice as it took you anywhere you wanted to get to on the island - including all the eating establishments, Publix, CVS, etc.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our stay in Happy Island. The house lives up to its name, everything you need to be comfortable. We did not have a car, and you really do not need one. The house is situated in a perfect location, close to bus stops, and the free trolley is wonderful, you really don't need to leave the Island. Close to shops, restaurants, but we had the best seat in the restaurant right at home, sat by the pool! Also you are only steps away from the spectacular white sand beach. Highly recommend catching the trolley to Anna Maria Pier and walking back to the house back along the beach, Bean Point is just spectacular. Just the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. You will not be disappointed if you rent the house, Alex the owner/ host is very friendly and helpful. Definitely felt like a home away from home. We would definitely love to come back one day

Thank you to Alex & Elena, and good luck with the Happy Turtle!

Beautiful Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house with great facilities. We are a family of 4 with a 16 year old daughter and 19 year old son. My daughter loved her 'attic' bedroom. All bedrooms had plenty of wardrobe and storage space. We had some bad weather during our stay and the TV entertainment system was very useful. The private pool was like a lovely warm bath and we enjoyed 'lizard watching' from the pool. The veranda offered some much needed shade and the outdoor chairs and sun loungers were very comfortable. The house is a 3 - 4 minute stroll to a beautiful white sugar sand beach one way and a 1 minute walk to the trolley bus stop the other way. Alex the owner came to meet us when we arrived and he gave us some very useful tips on places to visit and eat. I recommend a visit to Starfish Company, just over Cortez bridge - the food is AMAZING - no frills but simply delicious. The best soft shell crab sandwich I've ever tasted. We would definitely stay at Happy Island Cottage again if we return to Anna Maria Island in the future.
