About Cindy Miller

My husband Gary and I grew up in Maryland, went to high school together and have been married since college. Gary served 5 years in the Marine Corps and we were stationed 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! We also love walking out to the Rod N' Reel pier for breakfast or lunch. We know you will fall in love with Anna Maria just as we did!

Excellent Property - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for my family. It was immaculately clean, nicely decorated and the location was perfect. Only a couple of blocks to Bean Point and a couple of blocks to the Rod n Reel Pier. The home has everything you need and is plenty big enough for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. We enjoyed a gently walk to Bean Point to view the incredible sunsets each night. Lovely and quiet if you want a "No News" , "No Shoes" break with fantastic beaches and very friendly people. Or stroll down to Rod n Reel Pier for a spot of fishing, Manatee and dolphin spotting. Or enjoy a lovely meal and drink whilst gazing over the Tampa Bay to the Skyway Bridge. Can't wait to return!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a week in Cindy's adorable AND affordable condo in Anna Maria Island. This condo is in the perfect location, only a block and a half from Bean Point, the best beach along the entire island! The condo is so nicely updated and comfortable and had everything you could possibly need to make your vacation complete from luxury linens and towels to beach chairs and umbrellas! Cindy also supplied a basket full of six beautiful plush beach towels for our use. We cannot wait for the opportunity to visit Anna Maria again and stay in this beautiful "home away from home", thank you Cindy!

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.

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!
