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.

          Location

          Car: Not Necessary

          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.

           

          Manager info

          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.
