Anna Maria house description
Welcome to Buttonwood Cottage. This elegant nautically inspired single family beach home sleeps 8 comfortably. We have 3 nicely appointed bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master BR has a king bed, the second BR a queen, and the third BR has 2 twin-over-twin bunk beds that sleep 4.
The spacious dining room features a long hand-tooled solid wood table with a bonus bright corner desk for staying connected via WiFi. Nautical designer decorations are featured throughout the house and amenities include: fresh new bed and bath linens, beach towels, ceiling fans in just about every room, 2 new flat screen HDTVs, Netflix streamed, huge gourmet kitchen complete with wine cooler, a robust fresh herb and vegetable garden, propane grill, indoor and outdoor dining tables; beach chairs to take to the white sand and an abundance of beach toys as well.
Fresh landscaping and palm tree breezes make the front deck ideal for relaxing. Privacy fencing, the herb garden and comfortable seating make the 35ft long rear screened porch even more appealing. Tropical accessories invite you to relax after a day of beaching, biking or shopping on the island.
We are situated in the heart of Anna Maria on Pine Ave, in the walkable “Green Village” sprinkled with residential cottages, retail shops and restaurants lining the street. The Gulf of Mexico and the Tampa Bay are a 3 block walk in either direction. Anna Maria has a free Island Trolley that runs every 20 -30 minutes, takes you anywhere on the 7 mile island and picks you & drops you off on Pine Ave, just steps from the cottage.
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, stroll quaint island shops or gather your collection of seashells, it’s 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 dolphins.
Take a minute and picture yourself napping on a beach towel on the warm sand of the bay or Gulf of Mexico, all to the gentle sound of the surf. We look forward to your stay.

- Pine Ave has been coined the 'Greenest little Main St in America.' This beach house is nestled among shops, cottages and restaurants on Pine Ave in Anna Maria. These shops and restaurants are creating quite a buzz. So much so that 5 of our unique shops were recently featured in Southern Living magazine....moreless
ReviewsWrite a review
This was our first time to vacation in Anna Maria and most definitely will not be our last. We have stayed in rental homes before and none can compare to this one. The location was by far the best. It's bigger than the pictures show and was so clean and decorated very well. It made you feel like you were home. They had everything you could possibly need. We were able to walk to almost anywhere with the exception of a few places to eat that were more than 5 miles away. Lin, the property manager was more than helpful! What a blessing this was for my family to stay in such a great home and have some much needed quality time together before they go back to college. If you chose this home you will not be disappointed!

This home is incredible. It is so beautifully decorated. We enjoyed this home and our time in it. Our wonderful contact, Lin, was a pleasure and was exceptional. We will be back again. The owner is blessed to have such a space on Anna Maria Island and her talent is evidenced in every detail. I especially enjoyed that pictures of her beautiful family were on display. I felt the love in the home! Thank you!!!!

Easter 2013 on Anna Maria
Easter 2013 on Anna Maria
We just returned from a wonderful week at The Buttonwood Cottage on Anna Maria. This was our first rental property on Anna Maria, though we have stayed with family on Anna Maria twice a year for more than 20 years. The Buttonwood Cottage was the perfect solution for our over-flow guests and entertaining. The photos do not do this home justice! The kitchen is HUGE, the dining area easily seats 10 or more and the deck, yard and family rooms comfortably seat many more. The bedrooms are all spacious and provide plenty of storage and comfort. Everything a vacationer could need was provided! The house was well maintained and immaculate! It is close to shopping and the beach, and many dining options are easily accessible by bike or walking.

Couldn't be more PERFECT!!
Couldn't be more PERFECT!!
Our first visit to the island could not have been more perfect. Sharing some time with our old neighbors in this delightful house made our visit even more special. The house is described perfectly and is totally comfotable and just like home. The owner has gone the extra mile and then some on making the house comfortable and adorable. You only really need your toothbrush and swimsuit! Lin does a great job managing, everything is very clean,special touches are way too numerous to list. Location is ideal. Everything you need is within several doors. We loved the restaurants, beach and bay. My small dogs loved the fenced in yard and chasing the lizards. We will definately return!!

We LOVED your home. It was so beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. I loved having my morning coffee on the screened porch, and being able to walk to restaurants, stores and the beach.. You absolutely thought of everything to make our stay memorable! In fact my grandson wrote a paper for school and said it was his best vacation ever! Anna Maria is so charming, like stepping back in time. We can't wait for a return trip!

Year Purchased: 2012
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, spending time with friends and family are our passion...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 House:
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.
