The cottage has been updated with new appliances, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, tile, sofa, beds and furnishings. Seagrape Cottage still has the feel of a “beach house” while having the amenities guests have come to expect.

Seagrape is a 2 story cottage. Upstairs, there is a bedroom which has windows on all 4 sides that provide a panoramic view of both the Gulf and Bay. This upstairs bedroom has two twin beds, a flatscreen tv and lots of storage. Also upstairs is a bathroom with shower.

On the main floor, there are two bedrooms, one with a Queen size bed and flatscreen tv with dvd and one with a twin.

A fully equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, stove with oven, most of the small appliances you could need plus a breakfast bar which seats four and a nook with views of the beach. In the living room, there is a sofa and loveseat. The sofa pulls out to a full size bed. Seagrape has free WiFi and cable.

One of Seagrape's favorite features is it's large wrap-around porch overlooking the Gulf. It's great for watching the Gulf, beautiful sunsets, eating outside or just relaxing.

So come and have a very enjoyable, memorable stay at Seagrape Cottage on Anna Maria Island!

The Perfect Little Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Casual, comfortable, low key, convenient and clean. If you seek contemporary elegance with jetted bathtubs, elevators, swimming pools and hot tubs, this is not the property for you. For a true beach experience look no further than Seagrape I. Our family and friends enjoyed fun and quality time together at the lovely dining table eating dinner and then playing Scrabble later in the evening. Eating breakfast on the porch with a view of the gulf can't be beat. Seagrape I is equipped with all the necessities . Owner, Dan is easily reached and very responsive. A request for more beach towels evoked a quick delivery. On sight coin laundry meant we could fly without excessive luggage. Location is perfect - for walking to the beach, walking to Bridge Street, or taking the trolley to explore other parts of the island. Members of our group purchased a $25.00 rod and reel and spent many hours fishing from the nearby piers. We stayed at Seagrape in December 2016 and again in December 2017. Would love to return in 2018, but property has a "For Sale" sign and we worry that a new owner may not make Seagrape available for rental. That would be a true loss for us as we have all fallen in love with this little piece of paradise.

Lovely Seaside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Seagrape Cottage. The cottage's décor helped set the tone for our beach vacation. I cannot say enough about the beautiful views from the deck as well as how convenient it is to just step out your door and walk two minutes to the shore. The home is comfortable and clean. Dan is fantastic to work with and was very responsive to any questions I had prior to our stay. I would highly recommend this property and owner to anyone looking to stay on Anna Maria Island. This was a great start to our travels in Florida and I thank Dan so much for sharing this vacation home with my family!

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

My family fell in love with this property! The home is directly across the street from the beach, which makes for good porch sitting mornings and evenings. We also loved the fact that our fur baby got to come with us, which was awesome! We had a blast during our stay. The only complaints I have: the upstairs stays hot, but a fan is provided, some of the windows didn’t close completely, there is only one bigger sized bed. Other than those things, it was an awesome accommodation. Towels were provided, along with beach chairs and an umbrella. I had a surprise visit from a lizard friend while in the shower, which made for a good show for the rest of the family. We plan on staying here again!!! Thank you so much for a great stay!

A lovely property in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

A really beautifully presented house in a seaside theme. Just across the road from the lovely beach and a few minutes walk to restaurants and bars. Small but well equipped kitchen and large living area.
