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.

We had the most wonderful time staying at the Beach to Bay Cottage. Everything was very clean and well maintained. My children felt right at home, we all wished we could stay! Tim was so easy to work with, we have already recommended the property to friends and family! The location was perfect. Depending on which way you walk out your door, you are steps to the beach, or steps to the bay! Walk a few blocks to Bridge St. where there are plenty of options for dinner, ice-cream, coffee, or the pier. Our family favorite was the Island Creperie. We took the free trolley and explored the island top to bottom! Honestly, the beach was so beautiful we spent most of our time there! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience, our very 1st. visit to Anna Maria Island! We hope to be back soon!

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.
