                                            We certainly enjoyed staying in the cottage and very much liked its position at the quieter end of the island with such a short stroll to the beach, Pine Avenue and pier. We will definitely return to AMI soon

                                            Our 2nd visit to AMI staying at Shell Cottage. Nothing had changed in 2 yeards, just as we experienced in 2010. A totally chilled out week doing as little as possible. Visited Brdige Street Bistro. If you want lush Ice Cream, visit Two Scoops at Anna Maria City Pier, Amazing!! Used the Trolley Bus, a good amount to get to Publix/Coquina Beach and switched to visit Long Boat Keys. Sad to be leaving.

                                            This is our last year here!! I really can't remember how many times we've been - but we were the first people to ever make a reservation in these cottages. Many happy memories of here and a previous 10 years on Longboat Keys. As they used to say in old films - "As the sun sinks slowly in the west - its time to say on land (and sand) farewell to this lovely part of Florida"

                                            Our 3rd return to lovely Starfish Cottage and it never disappoints. AMI magical as ever. A wonderful shot of sunshine to shorten the English Winter. Back home to pre-Christmas mayhem now, but will be back!

                                            Only 4 days, but a lifetime of memories! Sunrise & sunset on the Beach - magical. SandBar Restaurant had fantasic atmosphere & outstanding food. Who needs a hire car when you can amble around on Beach Cruisers?! The Cottage is beautiful and exceeded our expectations. We all hope to return.

                                            Once again we have had a wonderful holiday here at Starfish. We have been here a few times and still love the area. We have made the most of the beautiful beach and feel very relaxed. Hopefully we will be back.
