Anna Maria cottage description
Enjoy our remodeled and comfortable island original, located at the prestigious north point of Anna Maria Island across the street from the landmark Rod and Reel Pier. This pier has one of the best restaurants on the island serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner while offering deck seating overlooking experienced anglers catching a wide variety of fish. Wildlife such as dolphins, manatees, pelicans, etc. can be seen while enjoying dinner. Meet new and old friends at the friendly and eclectic bar downstairs where reasonably priced libations and snacks are served. Crab cakes, clam chowder, and grouper sandwiches are the best on the island and don't forget to try their Pier Burger...awesome.
The pier also provides fishing equipment rentals, daily fishing licenses for sale, and bait. There is no excuse for not trying your hand at angling. If you catch a keeper, walk across the street and cook it on the house grill or ask the chef at the pier if they would prepare if for your dinner that evening.
Sugar sand beaches filled with shells, sand dollars and star fish are across the street on the Bay side or 3 blocks away on the Gulf side. This beach house is located in the most popular area of the island where you can enjoy all aspects of the island without getting into your car. Don't forget to walk to the north point to experience the most spectacular sunsets you'll ever see.
The beach house has fully insulated new hurricane windows that provide energy efficient protection from winds, rain, heat and cold. A library of fictional books are available for reading along with a library of DVD movies.

This cottage was wonderful! The interior was beautifully decorated, and the owner was wonderful to deal with. The backyard was better than anticipated; it was not manicured by any means, but lovely to sit on the back deck or to barbeque. And the location was perfect! It was just a few minutes to a gorgeous beach. The lanai was our favourite spot to read a book or just relax with out coffee in the morning. The beds in the third bedroom were very uncomfortable, but I'm told they're being replaced. This bedroom also has the only access to the backyard, so it must be walked through to get there, which was mildly inconvenient. The traffic on the island is also horrendous. Between 10 and 5 it was a headache to get anywhere. We were there for two months and had very little concerns, all of which the owner handled wonderfully. All in all a great vacation!

Our family of four stayed here August of 2011. The house is perfect for a family, plenty of room for everyone. It was very clean and the new bathroom and kitchen are great. My teen son loved the WiFi, so he could play his video games. I loved that is is so close to the beaches. You just grab your towel, snorkel and mask and walk just a block in either direction and you are at the most beautiful beaches in the world. My husband loved that the fishing pier was right across the street and loved the gas grill on the back deck. We all loved to eat over at the pier and loved to see the dolphins playing right in front of us. We also saw manatees, starfish, sand dollars, sea snails and stingrays. No need to go to the aquarium, it was right across the street. Look forward to our next trip.

The Most Relaxing Vaccation ever
The Most Relaxing Vaccation ever
Once you step through the gate to this cozy cottege, you feel the relaxation taking over, and you forget the busy outside world. The interior of the cottage has been renovated with a beautiful spacious kitchen, and custom touches throughout. Everything is very clean. There is plenty of space to lounge around, and it is big enough that you don't fall over each other if you have a large family. The outside landscaping is very colorful and gives you a sense of privacy.The Rod and Reel Pier is literally steps away, and eating there is something that we always look forward to. Wildlife is everywhere, and a beautiful and shady beach is just a short walk down the road. There are many other great restaurants on the island, and cute shops to visit. I have recommended this place to all my friends and relatives.

Having stayed there for for a month in 011, this property was not advertised truthfully.No wireless wifi.Filthy carpets with stains all over them. Could not use the backyard because of trash and fleas. The brand new kitchen was beautiful, as was the new bathroom. Rest of the place was not taken care of. We should have known better, being there was no rental lease available.

This beach house is adorable with completely remodeled kitchen featuring GE profile appliances and beautiful granite counter top. The location across from the Rod and Reel Pier make it very convenient for fishing, eating and enjoying locals at the quaint and friendly bar. Only a couple of blocks from "Bean Point" make walking on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world accessible and enjoyable everyday. I love this place and hope to stay there many more times and make memories with my family and friends.

Owner response: The beach house remodeled is now completed with no carpets anywhere and all refinished hard wood floors. All new landscaping throughout the house and a new deck with new grill on new back deck. All tenants were told we were in the middle of the remodel and the house was priced accordingly at that time. Now the remodel has been completed and all guests are thrilled with the house. Perfect location on island across from the Rod and Reel make the stay enjoyable and convenient to fishing and dining. Please see all new pictures.

About the owner: Paul and Sharon Comkowycz have been married for 34 years and currently reside full time in Winter Haven, Florida. We spend every available weekend at Anna Maria Is with our grand daughter, family, and friends. We've been enjoying this island paradise for 34 years as we found this beach location we love after moving from New Haven, Ct. Our plans are to retire to this beach community and in the meantime, we rent our house to guests during the winter season and occasional weeks at a time during the off season and summer.
Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria:
Anna Maria Is. is only 1 hour 45 minutes from our home in Winter Haven. The beaches are the finest in the world. Close proximity to Tampa, Sarasota, and Bradenton added to the quality of life we experience when vacationing on the island. We are not far from the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, St. Armand's Key in Sarasota, and the Mote Aquarium and research center in Bradenton. We chose our current beach house after owning another on the gulf side of the beach but preferred the location near the Rod and Reel Pier and the size of our 3 bedroom 2 bath house.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Bike Riding, Kayaking, Fishing, Reading, Walking, Naping, Watching Movies, Meeting new People, Eating out at some of the best restaurants in Fla...like Sign of the Mermaid, Sand Bar, Beach Bistro, Rod and Reel.
