About Debbi Larsen

We are retired and have traveled a great deal but we always kept coming back to Anna Maria Island. The beautiful beaches and Old Florida feel made us love it so we have been coming back for the past 10 years.

Debbi Larsen purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Debbi Larsen chose Anna Maria Island

We love the North end of Anna Maria and being near Anna Maria Pier and seeing the view of Tampa Bay and the Sunshine Bridge.We love to ride our bikes and walk the beaches every morning when we are there.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the quiet of the North End and the private yard with our lovely pool and palm trees.Wonderful pool and outdoor shower.Look for the wild parrots flying overhead.Bike the island and kayak the bays.

Communication was excellent, and the cottage was a delight. Our vacation far exceeded our expectations! This was our first trip to Anna Maria Island, but hopefully not our last.

We have rented this beach house I think this is our 4th or 5th time and would never think about looking for any other place to stay. We really found a gem with this home and Fred and Debbi. This beach house is perfect in every way!!! Extremely clean, well maintained and the perfect location on the quiet and peaceful north end of the island. We have vacationed in this home many times and would not even consider looking anywhere else and once you have experienced a stay in SeaGlass you will feel the same.

The location is just perfect. Just a short walk across the street is a beautiful wide beach. Everything you would need or want for the beach is available to you in this home. This home is so well maintained with anything you would ever need and the owners, Fred and Debbi are just the BEST!!! You will never be disappointed with your stay. You are with in walking distance to the Rod n Reel for great breakfast and views. A short walk away is the Pier, Waterfront restaurant and Pine Avenue with lots of shops to browse. The Waterfront has delicious crab cakes! There are many places to visit and eat within walking distance or a short drive. One of our favorites for breakfast is the Mermaid and their stuffed crème brulee French toast. A must for any visitor!!!! Another favorite is the Lazy Lobster on Long Boat Key. They do not take reservation for the outside patio but well worth it if you have to wait a short time for a table outside and the food is terrific. If you are looking for Stone Crabs, Cortez Kitchen right across the Cortez Bridge is the place to go. There is just so much to do and places to go that you will never be bored and the pool......BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFUL!!!

If you are looking for the perfect beach home to rent look no further. You have found the perfect vacation spot. We look forward to going back as much as we can and what you see in the pictures are true and exact. You will not regret your choice.

Final thought for Fred and Debbi, thank you so much for everything you do to make us feel so welcome. You have become friends and we look forward to our trips every year. The only problem is that we never want to leave!!!!!!

Quiet, peaceful, clean, and well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Sea Glass Cottage because it's location was tucked away on the north end of the island and it was rated highly for its cleanliness. It was clean and well maintained-just like the pictures. Three sleeping spaces were perfect for our family of 5 - parents with a 2 month old and grandparents. Grandparents took the master suite and we took the two bedrooms on the other side of the house. It is nice that they are separated by the kitchen and main living space. It was also nice to have a separate tv in the den space - although we didn't watch it much, it was something we took advantage of occasionally. There are no tvs in the bedrooms, which we prefer. Other pluses about the house - the kitchen is well equipped for cooking, the washer/dryer helped for doing a couple of loads of laundry, and bathrooms are really nice. The beds were pretty comfortable as well.

Due to the recent rains from Tropical Storm Hermine, the beach access to Bean Point Beach was flooded at spots. Bean Point is lovely and we enjoyed the dolphin watching, but there is no shade (we are being picky, but it's nice to have consistent shade with the baby). We explored some other spots on the island and found some shadier locations near the Magnolia Street beach access. The cottage has everything you need for the beach - a large wagon, very nice umbrella (good size and corkscrew bottom), several chairs, and beach towels.

The pool is AMAZING! The umbrella in the pool has spoiled us for life. Considering there had just been a tropical storm pass through the outside space was well maintained. The pool was also cleaned while we were at the cottage. We spent most afternoons floating around the pool and hanging out in the back under the umbrellas.

The location is ~1 mile from the main drag on the north end of the island. We were there at a unique time since the storm had just gone through and some of the streets were flooded. We did not have any issues getting to the house and Debbi was great about checking on that for us before we arrived.

In terms of food we frequented Ginny and Jane E's for breakfast and had lunch there once-highly recommend the sticky buns and chocolate chip cookies. We had our best dinners at the Waterfront - some creative menu items, good food, and nice service. Poppo's was delicious - try the chips and guacamole. Columbia at St. Armands was a nice excursion for dinner one night - 1905 salad and sangria are a must. Donut Experiment was yummy too.

The house was spotless as well as the pool and pool area. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds comfortable. The owners were so easy to work with. Loved it all and hope to return.

This house was perfect for our 4 person family. It is very close to beach access and the pier. All of the beach and pool supplies were wonderful. We did not need any of our supplies. This means that the next time we can fly. So exciting! Highly recommend.

Wonderful First Impression

  • 4 of 5

Our first visit to Anna Maria Island and Seaglass Cottage. A welcome note and clean, bright, sparkling cottage let us know this stay would be one of our favorites. There is nothing you need that isn't ready and waiting for you. All appliances are state of the art. The pool was perfect! The area is quiet and a quick walk to the beautiful beach. Swimming with manatees on a daily basis was quite an experience. The Donut Experience, Harry's Grill, The Sandbar, The Waterfront, Two Scoops and Poppo's were wonderful and close. My only regret is that we had to leave. Thanks so much for helping to make our vacation one to remember!!
