Recent Anna Maria reviews
We loved our stay!
"We rented in April 2014. This was our second time to Anna Maria and the first time staying in this home. It was perfect for our family (two children, my husband and myself). The beach is a VERY short walk, the trolley is right around the corner, the pool was pristine and refreshing, and the beds were comfy. Suzann was accommodating and very responsive. Last time we visited, we stayed on the opposite side of the island and further south. The location of this particular house is so much more IDEAL! You can walk to the most beautiful (and not crowded!) beach in less than a minute. Suzann provided access to beach chairs and a beach cart (which was awesome and much appreciated). The sunsets are breathtaking. We loved being on the "sunset side" of the island (we planned our evenings around watching the sunset each night). Being so close to the shops and restaurants allowed us to hop on the (free!) trolley or ride our rented bikes everywhere we wanted to go. We enjoyed dinner at the house, grilling and cooking inside, and then sitting outside by the pool at the table and chairs. We'll definitely be back!!"

"What a pleasant stay!! Great communication between the owners and us from the time of reserving the dates, the night of arrival and once during our stay to see if everything was in order. This home was very well suited for our family of 4 plus our dog for a week's vacation. It was so nice to have our dog with us while traveling. For a dog friendly rental this was top notch. From the time we arrived we knew that this was going to be a great getaway from the cold Michigan winter.
About the House: The kitchen was supplied with all the necessities for preparing and serving meals. The beds were quite comfortable and the house was spotless. Oh! and the shower head in the master bedroom was awesome. We enjoyed grilling steaks out back on Christmas day and having drinks under the lighted pergola.
The location: The house was in a perfect location on the Island. We took evening walks every night around the neighborhood and down Gulf drive. You are just a block and a half away from the Gulf of Mexico and the beautiful sugar sand beach, great for your morning walks! Take a stroll to Ginny's and Jane's for breakfast or lunch. They have great homemade baked goods and handmade sandwiches. We did rent a golf cart from a local rental place off the island. They deliver and pick up right at the house, but be sure to make reservations in advance. Too fun! We have vacationed in Florida for the past 20 years and usually stay in Sarasota or Siesta key for the beaches. This was a refreshing vacation to stay in a place with a home town atmosphere. Very relaxing vacation, love the beach (walking, sunsets) the pier (fishing and people watching also dolphins) and the downtown boutiques (5 minute walk from house)."

"Anna Maria Island Cottage provided the perfect vacation getaway for our family of four! The home is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The open floor plan of the living area made it easy for our family to spend time together while off the beach too. And when it was time to hit the sand, we were only a short three block walk to a beautiful spot on the beach.
Dan was very helpful, making sure we got situated when we arrived at the home and offering use of beach chairs, boogie board, etc. He even was able to recommend a wonderful dentist that saw us the same day when a dental emergency popped up.
We would recommend Anna Maria Island Cottage without reservation to anyone looking for a cozy, inviting and and beautifully kept place to stay.
Thanks again, Dan, for sharing your lovely home with us. We will cherish our vacation memories for years to come."

"We completely enjoyed our 4th of July week at The Beach House, what a great location easy walk to the beach, didn't have to cross any busy roads and the remodeling has turned out great. Nice in cool inside with the new central air. The back bedroom was perfect for the kids. A great turn key vacation home"
