  • A wonderful break in a beautiful location

    "My wife and I booked Sunrise Cottage after a lot of searching for our "perfect property" and, having spent a really lovely week relaxing and enjoying the home, the pool, the beach and the island I have to say that we found what we were looking for. The Cottage is really well maintained, with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge and lovely bedrooms. The pool and garden are lovely, surrounded by gorgeous foliage (I opened the blinds one morning to a green parrot staring in at me from the flowers). The Cottage feels really private, somewhere that we could completely relax and forget the world outside. One more than one occasion we walked the half mile down the lovely sandy beach to watch the sunset with a beer and a cocktail. We ate out at local restaurants for the first couple of evenings, but then liked being around the house so much that we barbecued and cooked for ourselves towards the end of the week, taking dinner by the pool was so lovely. I would thoroughly recommend Sunrise Cottage to anyone looking for a really nice quality home from home to relax with peace and quiet and privacy and we would really love to be able to return before very long."

  • Charming beach cottage!

    "We rented this charming beach cottage Christmas week and had a fabulous time there! From the minute we arrived and stepped in the front door, we were impressed! The place is immaculately is spic & span. The cottage is decorated beachy chic very tastefully done. It had everything we needed and more. Even had twinkling xmas lights wrapped around deck. What a nice touch by Michelle since we were there at Xmas. The kitchen is well equiped, the bathroom was spotless, linen closet well stocked with soft, thick bath towels & also big beach towels. The outside has a nice deck and also a patio table & umbrella in the side yard. There are beach chairs and a beach cart to haul all your stuff to the beach. Michelle has gone out of her way to ensure a great place to stay. As far as the location, it is central to everything- couple blocks to beach, a block to trolley stop, two blocks to little general store. As for restaurants, in the morning we'd walk couple blocks to Ginny&Jane's neat funky bakery/cafe, mid-day at the Sandbar restaurant where you can have your toes in the sand eating lunch is only a couple blocks away, and then a few more blocks away but still walkable is the little downtown area of Anna Maria with a few more restaurants. The absolute best fish we had was fresh caught red grouper and red snapper from Captain Anthony's who has a little screened in place right off the road before the Sandbar restaurant. He fishes in the morning and then sells it in tbe afternoon. He cuts & fillets the amount of fish that you want in front of you & then gives suggestions on cooking it. Delish! Another note is that Michelle is terrific to work with. She was the very first one to reply to the queries I sent when we first started checking. She was also faster than a speeding bullet in responding to any of my emails. We truly enjoyed a lovely week of carefree days spent at the beach and family time together in the evenings in this charming cozy comfy beach cottage."

  • Gorgeous Home, Beautiful Memories

    "My large family -- parents, several grown kids and their significant others, one grandchild -- rented this home for a long weekend and loved it. The bedrooms and pool area were all fun to explore, and the nightly trek to the beach for sunset was a delight (even though a neighbor stopped some family members to check where they were staying). The construction site directly behind the house is a bummer, as the view to the beach is lovely without it. Our favorite part was the huge porch, which hosted several afternoons (and evenings, and mornings) of relaxed conversation, outdoor meals and general hangout time. We loved that there were bikes available, and the elevator was a perk for bringing up heavy items."

  • Best of AMI

    "Wonderful home in a quiet section of AMI proper. Enjoyed the fabulous pool, use of bikes and beach/pool toys, cooking in the well-appointed kitchen and fishing from the dock. Recommend 2 Scoops for ice cream, Waterfront Restaurant, Ocean Star Sushi near the marina. Perfect setup, very responsive owner, would DEFINITELY stay again."
