Anna Maria cottage description

Ready to satisfy that oh-my-gosh-we-need-a-vacation? Beach Nest will make you absolutely swoon. Kick off your shoes and throw them in the back of the closet. Promise yourselves to live in bathing suits from breakfast to bedtime! Vacationers, dreamers, honeymooners, would-be family-reunion planners and just plain oglers -- peer into our rooms! Fancifully concocted with the latest interior whimsy. Gaze at flowers, trees, mosses, grasses, ferns, a breathtaking swimming pool, a well-landscaped garden, trellises and furniture that has been collected and restored to transform the yard into a water-lovers’ Eden. Watch the kayaks bob by and the dolphins play. Throw in a line from your private fishing dock. Rent kayaks and explore the mangrove shaded intercoastal waterway. Welcome to Beach Nest! Beach Nest gives the feeling of joyous spontaneity with vivid colors, cushie-comfy furniture and details that are confident and filled with imagination. You can see it in a master bedroom with an antique chandelier, king bed covered with a red, white and blue quilt and an ensuite bathroom with a claw foot tub. French doors open to the pool and water view. The second master is pretty-in-pale-pink, with a European king-sized bed, antique mirror and a white marble ensuite bathroom that makes a special bedroom just a little more special. French doors open to the front garden with views of palm trees and orchids. A flowered crewel bedspread is draped over the four poster queen bed in yet another guest room. The children’s room has a trundle with another pull-out twin and can be decorated for the princess or the prince in your group. All adults? We can do that too! They share a bright and beautiful hall bath. A sparkling clean and light kitchen is outfitted to make the chef in your group happy. Food processor, blender, gas range, Calphalon pots and pans, electric juicer, food processor, electric tea kettle, blender, coffee pot, toaster and mixer plus a stock pot and a good set of carving knives. Dishes: crystal wine glasses, full set of china, colorful serving dishes, brandy snifters, beer glasses, wine buckets, dessert bowls, coffee mugs, etc. plus cook books galore! The dining area seats eight with a view. Over-sized couches surround a flat screen and each adult bedroom has a flat screen. Piano anyone? Or gazing at the stars through the telescope? A desk and lounge chair with a water view are a cozy spot to chat, read a book or pretend to check in with the office. Mangrove shaded water views, a boat dock, outside dining plus a swing on the porch complete the picture.
Within walking distance to shopping and restaurants, Beach Nest is ideally set just 6 houses from the Gulf of Mexico beach on the north end. Whether you dream of a break from the winter cold, a long honeymoon retreat or the perfect family getaway destination, Beach Nest offers you the finest in beauty, comfort and convenience.
Come and experience the true island magic of Anna Maria, one the most un-self-consciously 'hip' islands on the west coast of Florida and one of the few places on earth that offers such peace, serenity and escape from the crowds.
By now you’ve probably heard of Anna Maria Island. And if you haven’t, you will in 5…4…3…2…1 – someone will have mentioned it to you in the time it took to read that. That’s because it’s an uber-fun, absolutely addicting, everyone-who-stays-here-loves-it vacation spot that you just need to know about. You've picked Beach Nest, only 6 houses from the sugar white sand of Gulf of Mexico. Sunsets to die for and dolphin sightings guaranteed! Walk to boutiques, restaurants, ice cream shops or the free trolley. Rent a bike or golf cart and get around the way the locals do!

                  OBSESSED. By now you’ve probably heard of Anna Maria Island. And if you haven’t, you will in 5…4…3…2…1 – someone will have mentioned it to you in the time it took to read that. That’s because it’s an uber-fun, absolutely addicting, everyone-who-stays-here-loves-it vacation spot that you just need to know about. You've picked Beach Nest, only 6 houses from the sugar white sand of Gulf of Mexico. Sunsets to die for and dolphin sightings guaranteed! Walk to boutiques, restaurants, ice cream shops or the free trolley. Rent a bike or golf cart and get around the way the locals do!

                  Want a break from the sun? Disney and Universal are only a couple hours drive and Sarasota, the cultural Center of the Gulf coast is only 45 minutes away.
