Welcome to Peppertree Studio. This private, clean, updated, bright and airy beach-side studio is situated just a couple houses from the Gulf of Mexico beach access. There are no roads to cross in order to enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches and glorious sunsets on the west coast of Florida. It's here that you will delight in the finest white sand with miles of pristine shoreline, perfect for long walks along the surf.
Calling all writers looking for a quiet, beach retreat...or maybe you're an artist in need of some beach inspiration and time to create alone. If you're looking for a perfect, affordable honeymoon (or second honeymoon) suite, this is it! There's also a 2BR, 2BA cottage on the same property (same owners) available to rent. See VRBO listing #389842 for more info. Reductions available when rented together.
Sit out back on your own private patio and enjoy your morning coffee in lush privacy. Witness sunsets from the beach each evening and be home in moments. During the summer months loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs on these beaches and you will likely see dolphins.
The city of Anna Maria has no fast food restaurants, no traffic lights and no high rises. It’s 'Old Florida' at its best, when things were tranquil and living was easy. Whether your goal is to finish that good book you’ve been reading (or writing), stroll some quaint island shops or gather your collection of seashells, it’s all easily accomplished here.
Nature lovers will be amazed at the natural habitat of Anna Maria. Whether you’re a bird watcher, shell collector, fishing enthusiast, or master gardener, you’ll find what you’re looking for here. Our sugar sand beaches are strewn with seashells and are well populated by shore birds, sea turtles and dolphin. Take a minute and picture yourself napping on a beach towel on the warm sand by the Gulf of Mexico, all to the gentle sounds of the surf...just breathe.

The Studio was without question the centrepiece of our wonderful week on Anna Maria. It's location is perfect. Situated on a quiet, attractive street, we were just steps away from the beautiful gulf-side beaches and within easy walking distance of restaurants, shopping and many of the island's main attractions. In addition to being as cute as the photo's suggest, the Studio is an amazingly well-equipped and comfortable setting for two people. We made great use of the bicycles and beach accessories that are provided and enjoyed many mornings relaxing over coffee on the patio. The property manager could not have been more helpful in making sure we enjoyed our stay. Only regret is we couldn't stay longer. We will be back.

Owner response: Chris and Alice - Thank you for your outstanding review, kind words, and for leaving the studio in such great shape! It was a pleasure having you and we hope you'll return!
We stayed at this property from Oct 14 -21. The weather was perfect and the location affords easy access to the beach where we had coffee each morning and sun all the day long. The space is perfect for two people. We bought groceries for breakfast and lunch and ate dinners out or brought pizza or burgers in, though you could easily grill. We also enjoyed pina coladas using the blender. Access to umbrellas, chairs, cooler etc made our stay perfect. Saw cool critters in and near ocean. The time of year meant a little bit of no-see-ums on the beach, but was remedied with bug spray. Great restaurants within easy walking distance, or a trolley ride. Try Sandbar at sunset, Gini and Jane E's for lunch or breakfast. We would definitely come here again!!!

Owner response: Debbie - Thank you for your outstanding review; we look forward to your return!
My review is coming a bit late, but nonetheless, this studio is amazing! We have gone to AMI several times before but this was our first time staying at the Peppertree. It's pretty hard to find a studio that is affordable for only 2 people and it fit all of our needs and more! We loved that there was only a short walk to the beach and enjoyed the patio at night as well. We will be back soon!

Hidden Island Treasure!
Hidden Island Treasure!
Although we live on the nearby mainland, my partner and I stayed 9 wonderful days at this charming studio hideaway on Anna Maria Island. While compact, the studio was clean, bright and cheerful and provided ample space to make ourselves at home. The Gulf breezes, a comfortable king-sized bed, and the quiet street provided for sound sleep. There were bikes, a small charcoal grill, beach towels and equipment available for our use. The quietness of the neighborhood & being just a couple of houses away from a quiet beach truly made this vacation feel like a special retreat.

What a Great Little Studio!
What a Great Little Studio!
Just returned from a week at this little studio and already miss it! What a bright and cheerful place to stay to relax and unwind. The windows along the front were great...left the top part of the blinds open so I could see the wonderful Florida sun come up in the morning - telling me it was time to hit the beach. A short walk to the beach makes it handy for taking a lunch break. In the evenings, if you don't want to drive, walk one block to the trolley stop and it will take you anywhere on the Island for dinner. My favorite meal was at the Waterfront Restaurant, the blackened Seafood Platter was awesone. Also good is the Rod & Reel Pier. Anna Maria Island was great, I will be back again!

Owner response: Great having you, Gina! Thanks for the sterling review and leaving the studio in such great shape. We look forward to your return.
Our experience was great. The photos didn't mislead. Bright, cheerful clean studio in good taste, very quiet (except for an insect at night that was loud, because we like to have the windows open) on a little side street near the end, short walk to the best wide powdery white sand beach imaginable that is never crowded and extremely clean. Being gluten-free was somewhat of a challenge but the Sand Bar restaurant, a walk up the beach, was a place I could find many delicious items, although some seemed overpriced. And Publix grocery store is a free trolley ride away and has gluten free items. A deep el frying pan and a toaster oven met all my cooking needs but there is a microwave for those who prefer. I recommend this place to those with our priorities: quiet, unpretentious, little shaded private yard, sound of wind in palm leaves, miles of beautiful uncrowded beach,warm clear gulf waters, public transportation (we hate to drive on vacations) in the form of a free trolley the length of the island. Two bicycles at our disposal, but stick to side streets and and stay very alert. Looks safe but many of the drivers are pretty weird here. So, if like us, you are looking for one of the scattered remaining places on the island that isn't pretentious and/or condo, you will love it. (Bring 30+ sunscreen, take a siesta in the middle of the day, don't miss the sunsets or early am walks on the beach. You might see the dolphins go by.) Last but actually first and throughout, the agent for the owners was amazing. She could not possibly have been nicer or more accommodating.

Owner response: Thank you so much, Susan and David! It was a pleasure having you stay with us. Please come back. Those little tree frogs sure can make themselves known at night, especially when they're looking for a mate!

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Roger and I (Katy) have lived in Bradenton for 28 years. Our children have grown up spending a lot of time on this island and loving it. Watching dolphin, manatees and pelicans has become one of our favorite pastimes.
Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria:
We bought our first beach house in 2000. As time passed, and with the addition of our grandchildren, we outgrew it and were fortunate to find The Peppertree Cottage and Studio. The quiet street and gulf beach access, one house away, sold us! With the house situated on ground level it’s also more comfortable and convenient. Now it's time for the next generation to fall in love with this incredible island.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Every time we arrive on Anna Maria it’s like entering a different world. The charming island atmosphere completely relaxes you. Everyone who visits has a hard time leaving and immediately makes plans to return. The free trolley is also a real plus and allows visitors to see the entire island with someone else taking care of the driving.
