Can't Touch This !' A Family Retreat with Privacy

Come see the beautiful newly renourished beach!! Not only is there more white sand, but now the beach is even wider for you to enjoy. A breathtaking site.

Coquina Cottage at the Beach provides a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for friends and family on a quiet, residential street with no through traffic. It is just steps from the white, sandy Gulf Beach and Sarasota Bay for your swimming, boating, wave runner, kayaking and fishing pleasure. Bask in the sunshine while swimming in the Gulf or relaxing on the white, sandy beaches by day. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets on the beach or take a stroll in the peaceful moonlight in the late evening. Have your morning beverage or late afternoon cocktail on the hidden front porch or in the private courtyard.

The pictures do not show the true size of the house and property. Coquina Cottage sits on a spacious, double lot with private parking and a secluded garden/patio/courtyard area. The Cottage is approximately 2,016 square feet. It is rented as a single property. The property features “2” sections that are lovingly decorated with rattan and wicker furniture. Fresh colors of the tropics surround you.

The front section has two bedrooms with queen beds to sleep four. There is an open floor plan between the kitchen and spacious living room. It has one bathroom. The back section is a large, airy and bright efficiency suitable for two. It also has one bathroom with a living room area and an eating area that are separated from the bedroom area (queen size bed).

Each section has a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, washer and dryer. The front section also has a dishwasher. Both sections have separate central air conditioning.

There is a large, comfortable TV room between the two sections. There are doors separating the sections from the TV room that allows you to choose your level of privacy. Each section has a private entrance for your use.


There is a 'no smoking' policy in effect. Please smoke outside the cottage and throw the butts away in the garbage.

About John Head

My wife and I have vacationed on numerous beaches throughout Florida. We love Bradenton Beach because houses are not built directly on this beach so the views are always breathtaking.

Why John Head chose Anna Maria Island

Anna Maria Island is a quaint island with an “Old Florida” feel. You can walk, bike or even take the FREE trolley to navigate the island. Our property is a piece of paradise that offers a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of your everyday lives.

What makes this cottage unique

This area is not overly crowded and the beach was recently renourished. The parking is free on Bradenton Beach. There are also newly renovated wide bike/walking paths for everyone to use.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Renting your place from you and your wife, was such a great experience, in you were so helpful, just a very pleasant person and so hospitable. In addition, your place was so efficient for us and very close to the beach which was very good for our kids and grandmothers.

We will sure keep you in mind anytime we are heading to Anna Maria and we will recommend you to anybody we know for their house rental vacation on Anna Maria.

Thank you again.

Coquina cottage visit to Anna Maria Island

  • 4 of 5

We had a 7 person family reunion spring on 2016 which was enjoyed by everyone- little grand children, their parents, and the grand parents. Part of the reason was the location of this cottage to the almost private beach. As far as the house/cottage we also liked the two kitchens, one for breakfasts and one for cooking dinners. We did a lot of cooking. Our only suggestion is a few more cooking items, like a blender. But we managed just fine. The washer and dryer were also very needed with the little ones. The outside hose for sandy feet, a play area on a patio, beach chairs - all added to the fun. One of the plus's is also the landlord's pleasant attitude and ability to communicate via email, text and phone. Another plus, is the cottage location on the Island which is near the lower bridges to LongBoat Key and to Bradenton-Cortez Rd, both which give access to Sarasota and nature preserves for rainy day adventures.

Great location to walk to shops and restaurants. With 2 dens and 2 kitchens there is plenty of privacy for teenagers and adult children. Great view of bay and gulf. We have rented this house 2 times and have enjoyed working with the owner. Look forward to renting again soon.
