About Tim McGlennen

My wife and I, along with my parents, have owned vacation cottages on the island since 1999. We started with Bill's Historic Fish Camp Cottages, located right on the BAY, on the same street .

Over a number of years, we completely renovated the historic 1939 cottages, saving them from certain demolition. And, doing this all while actually living in Minnesota. Guests have loved these unique cottages. We are known for reusing or repurposing just about any unique item.

Over the last few years, we renovated a beautiful POOL Home in Holmes Beach, called Yellowbird.

And, then we took on the task of renovating this classic Old Florida style cottage. Great structure that need some love. Over the course of a year, we produced this COOL and Uniquely designed Beach to Bay Cottage.

It's not your grandma's condo!

Tim McGlennen purchased this cottage in 1999

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and i drove all the way from jersey after two very long days, not really knowing what to expect, we arrived February 17, very excited but also nervous, as we put the key in the door and walked into our cottage, we were speechless, my husband was almost in tears, he could not believe how beautiful everything was and we were very impressed. We utilized our porch every day and night, the gulf and the bay were so close on each side of us. We were so impressed that we are inquiring about booking for next year. Tim was wonderful to deal with and answered all my questions.

Great location & quick / easy owner to communicate with!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the 1 & 2 bedroom which worked out great because we had two families. The front porches were perfect for sitting outside in the morning or evening. The beach is so close and there’s lots of restaurants within walking distance. Our kids walked to get ice cream most nights and walked to play putt putt. The cottage is comfortable and had all the kitchen items needed. The washer/dryer were really convenient. Our only wish was that some basic items like coffee filters, dish washing detergent, tissue and toilet paper would have been provided. We had to go to the store right away for these necessities. There were some beach towels and chairs which were nice! Overall, we would love to stay again!

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

The house is charming, very well kept and has lots of quirky touches. The kitchen is small but efficient, lnewly remodeled and up to date. The house is a duplex, but the walls are well sound insulated,so we hardly knew our neighbors were there. And we made friends before long anyways. It a very short walk to the bay for sunrises,or the beach for sunsets and everything else. Close to action and activities, but set away just enough to be quiet. Friendly neighborhood! It took me too long to discover how nice and sunny the back deck is, and protected from wind in the afternoons. Great stay!

The owners were great to talk to and very accommodating! Everytime I called, Tim was available!

The Beach 2 Bay Cottage was wonderful! It had all the amenities we needed! My family and I rented both cottages so we had plenty of room. We went to the beach every day which was only a half a block away. There were chairs and a umbrellas in the shed. There were also pool and beach toys in the shed ! Tim and his family thought of everything! There were also two washers and a dryer in the shed for our convenience. The deck and grill out back were perfect for lazy long dinners and a chance to just sit and talk with family and friends . Walking the half block to the beach is also recommended each night to watch the beautiful sunsets! The front porches were great in the morning for watching the sun come up over the bay or just sitting there to talk and relax before heading to the beach . The houses are also in walking distance to all kinds of shops restaurants and the shuttles that take you all around the Anna Maria island for free! I give the Beach 2 Bay Cottages 5 stars for comfort and a quiet place to vacation! I wish I was back there now!

SANDY BEACH.....The gorgeous White Sand beach of Anna Maria Island is just 100 feet away!! The sandy and safe Carribean-like beaches extend the entire length of the island. All great for swimming.


Enjoy the incredible views of the beach and dunes and check out the surf from the front porch!!


RESTAURANTS & BARS..... More than 10 restaurants and bars within easy walking distance of this wonderful cottage. Everything from hamburger joints, to white table cloth beach-front restaurants. If you enjoy fish, then this is the place to be. All of the establishments are locally owned....No Chains!


SHOPPING....The Historic Main Street of Bradenton Beach is an easy 5 minute walk and is loaded with quaint locally owned shops.


FREE TROLLEY..... a free trolley runs the length of the island from 6 am to 12 midnight. Numerous convenient bus stops. Many guests do not rent of car. There is only on main road up and down the island, so the trolley will get you there just as fast as your own car.


MINIATURE GOLF.... a new miniature golf course with island theme just opened on the quaint and historic Main Street. Great activity for families after a long day at the beach.


FISHING..... if you like to fish, you have found the right place. There are three public piers giving you great access to terrific salt water fishing, both on the bay side and Gulf side. All have bait available. Numerous charters are also available for hire for deep sea fishing.


There is also a PUBLIC DOCK at the end of our street that extends out in the bay. Great for fishing or launching a kayak.
