About Cindy Miller

My husband Gary and I grew up in Maryland, went to high school together and have been married for 41 years. Gary served 5 years in the Marine Corps and we spent most of that time in Hawaii. We loved Hawaii so much we ended up spending 12 years there and then decided to return to the States to be closer to family. Florida was the closest we could come to Hawaii with warm weather and lots of beaches!

Cindy Miller purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Cindy Miller chose Anna Maria Island

We bought the property when we first moved to Florida in 1991. We lived in the front "A" side of the duplex while renting the back "B" side to an annual tenant. We moved to the Tampa Bay area for work-related reasons, but kept the property so we could continue visiting the Island and renting to others. We've now converted both sides to vacation rental units and we love staying there ourselves!

What makes this cottage unique

Our place is just steps from the beach at the beautiful north end of Anna Maria Island. You will enjoy long walks on the beach, dips in the Gulf and gorgeous sunsets!

Perfect stay on AMI

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful stay in this property, lovely for a party of 2. The location is very close to the beach, very good walking distance. The house was fully equipped, there was nothing missing. It had everything for the beach. Internet with a very fast speed and enough TV channels to entertain you at night.

There is absolutly nothing to complain about this property. Looking forward to visit again!

Everything you need, makes for the perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited this SAME property for three years in a row...because it is PERFECT! We love this house, the location, and all the amenities. It is just a few blocks from the beach - a quick, easy walk each morning, and we are set up in minutes. The house has everything you would need - chairs, towels, a cart for toting items. Close to the shops, if you're interested - but we prefer the quietness of the North End and just stay up that way. We cook our meals or go out - the kitchen is nicely updated! The homeowner takes great pride in this home, and the rental management company is pleasant and responsive. We would rent again in a heartbeat - but next year we're bringing the kids and need a bigger place! We will keep it as our "special" little private bungalow for a couples retreat.

We have been to AMI many times over the past 20 years and this is the best rental we have ever stayed in!! It was so clean and organized. The location on the north end of the island is perfect! Very close to the beach and Rod n Reel Pier. We will be going back for sure! The rental company and homeowner were great to work with!! This home is amazing!! Can't wait to return!

Lovely Home and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time at Anna Marie Island. This was a great place to stay and also a quiet location. The home was nicely decorated, very clean and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. Having a washer and dryer is a big plus. The lovely white sand beach is only a block away. This location of the island is a great place to have bicycle's. There is a place on Pine Street that is only several blocks away where you can rent them. They deliver them to where you are staying. We only had to walk a couple of blocks to the pier and enjoy the beautiful sunrise's. When we contacted the owner she was quick to get back to us. Thank you Cindy! Can't wait to come back to AMI!

Perfect week in Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage accommodation in Anna Maria Island at the North end of the island.

The Cottage had everything we needed for a perfect week. Close access to the beach. Clean modern interior, shaded sitting/eating area outside and even a barbecue.

Washer, tumble drier, dishwasher, good cable TV and fast internet included in the facilities.

We would certainly have no hesitation in re-booking.

Island Cottage Charm

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Anna Maria. The listing description and photos accurately depicted the property. The recent updates modernized the kitchen and bath, but still retained the Floridian cottage charm. The owner was very accommodating for our early arrival. We thoroughly enjoyed biking on the island as well as to and through the Robinson Preserve. Tennis was available for no charge at the well maintained courts in Holmes Beach. The secluded beach within a 5 minute walk from the listed property was quiet paradise as compared to the Spring Break crowded beaches further south on the island. Sunsets were breathtaking. Dining favorites included the Rod & Reel w/in walking distance as well as the Waterfront across the street from the city pier. We're anxiously awaiting our return to Island Cottage Charm!!
