Property description

Welcome to Ruthie’s Retreat, a fabulous freshly updated cottage, conveniently located in the heart of Anna Maria's historic district. It's positioned within an easy stroll (2.5 blocks) to the gulf beach, Ginny and Jane E's and The Sandbar Restaurant. This enchanting mid-century 2 bedroom, 1 bath coastal cottage has undergone an extensive restoration resulting in a truly captivating island retreat.

The master BR has a king size bed with dually-controlled comfort settings and the second BR sleeps 2 with two twin beds. Comfortable, relaxed furnishings throughout include wicker, whimsical upholstered chairs and island flair accessories. This delightful cottage will surely capture your heart!

Some of the many amenities of this cottage include: sparkling terrazzo floors; numerous ceiling fans; 2 lg flat screen TVs w/cable and DVD with a large library of DVD films; secure WiFi Internet service; comfortable family room seating; an eat-in screened porch; a granite top kitchen island and all kinds of beach items to make your stay even more special. Towels, two adult bikes, beach chairs, sun umbrella, wagon, noodles, floats and beach toys are also included.

Enclosing the side yard, framed by a white picket fence, is a robust herb garden, a table and landscaping that offers color and tropical privacy. You can't ask for a better location! This is a great place to call your home away from home.

The free island trolley/bus runs every 20 min both north and southbound and takes you the length of the island and beyond.

Year Purchased: 2011

About: We have four absolutely amazing sons and two precious grandchildren. Their favorite place to be is on the island with Mimi and Geepa. Cooking and spending time with friends and family are our passions...and maybe a little Tampa Bay Rays baseball and NFL games.

Why Anna Maria:
My husband's work takes him all over the world and nothing is more relaxing for him than to drive 20 minutes from home and feel as though he's on vacation. Our middle son is a charter captain on the island, Captain Josh, which comes in quite handy for a fishing outing or supplies for a Friday night fish fry. We will retire on this island.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
All of our out of town friends and family who have vacationed on AMI enjoy the quaint feel of the island and the ability to walk almost anywhere.....we couldn't agree more.
