                            Words don't say enough about Sunrise Cottage and Lauren. The house was just perfect, in fact so perfect that we never wanted to leave for breakfast, lunch or dinner. In fact we didn't! The pool is so inviting and relaxing. The house comes equipped with everything you need. We will definitely be back. Thank you Lauren for sharing your home with all of us. The house is very clean, very close to all kinds of stores and shops and I would recommend this house to everybody.

                            Our family vacation at Sunrise Cottage was absolutely amazing! We felt like we were in our own tropical paradise for a week! The pool area was awesome and our kids were practically in the water from 9AM - 9 PM! The property was extremely clean and well maintained, inside and out! The beach was just a short walk away & was not crowded at all! We even got to see dolphins twice while at the beach. It was an added bonus having all of the beach supplies (chairs, umbrella, sand toys, etc) provided. The cottage and all of the amenities far exceeded our expectations & we definitely look forward to returning!

                            This was our first visit to Anna Maria Island and Sunrise Cottage was perfect! The cottage is clean, well maintained and the photos provide an accurate reflection. The pool and landscape is breathtaking and peaceful and most importantly very private. We had a wonderful dinner @ the Waterfront and would recommend this restaurant for the excellent seafood.. My husband is a quite a gourmet cook and we had several meals at the cottage. Anything and everything needed to prepare our meals was available, including a gas grille. We definitely plan on staying at Sunrise Cottage again on our next trip to Anna Maria Island and would highly recommend it to anyone including friends or relatives.

                            This cottage was great. Everything was top of the line (linens, towels, furniture)& I also loved that Lauren provides the essentials like soaps, shampoos, laundry detergent, etc. most rentals don't provide these basics so it was really nice to have them. The pool area was our favorite. I would love to have one just like it at home. The only thing I can think of that would make this cottage better would be if it were on the beach! It's about a 3 min walk & we went every day so nothing to complain about. I would definitely recommend this property.

                            Sunrise Cottage is the perfect place for a family vacation and it was the best family vacation we've had. We have three boys ages, 6, 4, and 1 and the pool is absolutely perfect for little kids (and adults as well). The pool is big enough for everyone to swim but has shallow areas where our boys could sit and play. The yard around the pool was extremely private and it was like having your own oasis just outside the front door. The cottage was clean and the exactly what the pictures show and the walk to the beach took less than 3 minutes. The owner was fantastic and you could tell she really cared about making sure we enjoyed our time at her place. I highly recommend this place - everything was perfect!

                            Just amazing....was so hopeful when I saw the previous reviews, but cautious. Then I stayed there myself and was SO IMPRESSED! We have a family of three and it was perfect! We stayed three blocks from the rest of my family, rented a golf cart to transport us here and there, and just enjoyed it immensely. We especially appreciated the "small things" the owner does, like provide WONDERFUL beach towels and even keeps the kitchen stocked with condiments! I made the mistake of assuming it would be a typical "rental" and bought salt, pepper, seasonings, oils, etc. and was so surprised to see she has the pantry stocked even with things like foil. Cottage is CLEAN!! Her requests at checkout were minimal,so impressed. **one thing to note which I felt is a true testament of the ownership of this rental. Prior to our arrival, it was discovered the washing machine had stopped working properly. It was absolutely NOT the fault of the owner....simply "one of those things" that happen in life no one can control (a gasket went awry in the washer). However, her approach was to attempt to have it repaired ASAP on a holiday weekend and when that didn't work, was very apologetic and even issued a small refund on the rental to make up for the situation. In addition, her standard request to have all beach towels laundered and folded was waived. Truly, a testament of a landlord "making it right" with a fair offer to balance the situation. So many other people could have just said "too bad, out of luck". Lauren was just amazing! ** Will absolutely rent again, and hope if she sells to give me first dibs. Location is PERFECT!

                            Had the pleasure of spending time with my family at the beach for one luxurious week! We enjoyed everything about our rental. This beach house is totally turnkey. . .we wanted for nothing! Awesome kitchen, great linens, comfy beds. It really felt like home and so close to those glorious Anna Maria sunsets!!! Be sure and visit Eat Here and Gio's off Cortez, both an adventure in great casual beach dining. Thank you Lauren!

                            My husband and I arrived on May 18 and left on May 26. The cottage looks just like the pictures. Very clean and cozy, and the linens are outstanding. The pool and surrounding area are a tropical paradise. We spent 8 days floating around in the pool....even had lunch at the table! The cottage is very close to the beach and the public access is a short walk. The island has several nice restaurants and quaint shops...many within walking distance. The island traffic was minimal, so walking or riding bicycles is easily accomplished. I have rented through VRBO several times and this is the first property to which I am returning. We loved the cottage and island. It was the perfect spot to relax and recharge. Lauren was easy to deal with, provided exceptionally prompt service and was very helpful at pointing us towards places off the beaten path. She's awesome! We are counting the days until we return!

                            Beautiful cottage and pool. Very bright, airy and clean. Location was awesome- a short block to the beach and restaurants and shopping. Beds were very comfortable and we loved the clean and soft linens. The pool though was the best part! We had a bit of a heat wave so spent most of our time in it. Kids preferred it over the beach! We will certainly return to this house and highly recommend to others.

                            We had a wonderful time at what we started calling "the villa". Secluded and private, yet just one block from the beach, island shopping, and restaurants. Having a private pool and BBQ was great and the villa was very comfortable and updated. If you are looking for privacy and comfort, it doesn't get much better than this. And the fresh fish......I want to go back right now. Brad and Terry

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: At Sunrise Cottage, we're serious about your relaxation. We keep things simple so you can dream about your beach vacation, not complicated paperwork. You'll receive complete information about Sunrise so you'll know what to expect when you arrive. We answer all questions promptly and treat you the way we would want to be treated. We extend a special welcome to our wonderful overseas guests - we promise to do everything we can to make you happy when you come so far to visit our beautiful island. Our goal is for all our guests is to remember Sunrise Cottage as their home away from home on Anna Maria Island.

                          Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria:
                          We purchased Sunrise Cottage because of the feeling you get driving across the island/mainland bridge. It’s the beginning of the rainbow. Sunrise cottage is the pot of gold awaiting you.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Staying in a cottage provides privacy while offering guests an opportunity to be part of a small community of friendly people who truly value their quality of life on the island. From the cottage guests can walk across the street to the beach to catch a spectacular sunset or walk one block in the other direction to peruse the many shops or enjoy the restaurants. Two guests once left in the morning to walk to breakfast and didn’t return until late afternoon because they strolled from shop to shop, enjoying wares and conversation with shop owners. It's nice to attain at least a temporary respite from fast food joints, high rises, and traffic - at Sunrise Cottage it doesn't take long to convert to 'island time'.
