Anna Maria cottage description

This bright, clean, cozy and newly renovated cottage with central HVAC is just steps to the bay and 5 blocks to the beautiful powder-soft, white-sand Anna Maria Island Beach and turquoise gulf water. Enjoy fishing from the Anna Maria City Pier located 500 feet from cottage.

Accommodations include a queen size bed in one bedroom, and 2 single beds in the other. All three beds have new mattresses. The bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans. A full kitchen with dishware, cookware, and utensils, is included for your convenience. Bed linens, bath linens and beach towels and other necessities are provided for your care-free holiday. Cable TV, wireless internet access, stereo CD/MP3-ready is available in the Living Room for entertainment while not at the beach. Plug in your MP3 player, iPhone or ipod and enjoy your music in the cottage. There is telephone with free domestic long distance available for your use.

The quaint Anna Maria island is the perfect get-away destination to relax. The sugar-white, powder-soft beaches are a sight to behold, as is the tranquil, clear turquoise water. The Gulf water averages 84 degrees year-round. Dolphins can often be seen playing. Activities include hiking, biking, fishing, deep sea fishing, jet skiing, sail boating, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and wind surfing.

This cottage has a bit of Florida history attached. The cottage was barged over from Egmont Key after WWII in the 1950's to 1960's. It served as officers headquarters on the Egmont Key as Egmont proved strategic to protecting the Tampa Port area during wartime. Many years after the barge ride to Anna Marie Island, the interior of the cottage was totally renovated in 2009 The floor plan was opened up in a desirable preferred way, but in keeping with the 'old Florida' look and feel.

There are golf courses on the island, and 45 more courses within a 30 minute drive. There is a free bus service to get around the island, but for your convenience, the Salt Box is only a short walk to island restaurants and a small grocery/deli.

The area is perfect for Biking, Golf, Shuffleboard, Amusement Parks, Fishing, Birding, Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Restaurants, Sightseeing, Swimming, Snorkeling/Diving, Boating, Water-skiing, Surfing, Windsurfing.
