                                                                  The Cutest Little Beach Cottage on AMI

                                                                  My husband and I have been staying at SeaHorse Crossing every year, about this time of year, for a long time and we keep coming back. We love it! It’s a stone’s throw from the beach and within close walking distance to the grocery store, pharmacy, many restaurants and beach shops. The cottage is clean, cozy and has all the necessary amenities. We spent a lot of time on the beach and visited many restaurants, such as Bridge Street Bistro, Bridge Tender, Old Hamburg Schnitzelhaus, Rod and Reel Pier Restaurant, Ugly Grouper, as well as a few just off island. All are very good and reasonably priced. We would highly recommend staying at SeaHorse Crossing. It accommodates four people (two bedrooms) and makes the perfect little getaway!

Enjoyed the place and its convenient location: Steps to the beach, shopping, and the trolley. PS. the outdoor shower is the bomb.... Already looking forward to next year. So Relaxing!!!! Dan.

It was hard to leave this comfortable and conveniently located cottage. It has everything you need, a modern kitchen, two great bedrooms, a living room with leather couches, a big tv and best of all a wonderful screened in lanai to sit and read or watch the world go by.

                                                                  Holmes Beach is wonderfully located close to both bridges and easy walking distance to a mall with drug stores, grocery, hardware, restaurants and a liquor store.

                                                                  The cottage has wonderful curb appeal and many people slowed down in their cars or stopped on their walks to the beach to admire the property.

                                                                  There is a minimal walk to the beach and plenty of beach toys in the back storage. Many windows flood the cottage with light. You will hate to leave too!

                                                                  Thank you for reviewing SeaHorse Crossing, I’m glad that you find our cottage so comfortable. You really can’t beat the location and I think that most of our guests spend much of their time relaxing in the lanai. It’s great being so close to the beach in a nice quiet, friendly neighborhood and yet being so close to restaurants and shopping! We look forward to your return in 2019!

                                                                  Sea horse crossing

                                                                  Owner's Response:

We also love being just steps to the beach and still walking distance to many conveniences. We are lucky to have Ellie, Bob and Suzanne looking after our home and taking care of our guests. We look forward to having you back in December!

                                                                  We had the pleasure of staying at Sea Horse Crossing for almost 2 months and it was the best 2 months that we can remember. The cottage is perfect in every way and the screened-in porch is perfect for after the sun goes down and early morning coffee and the paper. We had bikes the whole time we were down there and it made seeing the entire island so pleasurable. The cottage is stocked for every need possible, beach equipment, beach towels, the kitchen for cooking. The little side street (31st St) is so quiet, yet we met so many people from all over the world, it was SO MUCH FUN. I would highly, highly recommend this place to anyone, whether it be a couple looking for romance or a family of 4 looking for a perfect vacation. The beach is just steps from the house, large Publix, coffee shop, Walgreens with great liquor store all within walking distance and there are so many restaurants you'll never visit them all, though we tried and they were all great! We recommend Skinny's for a burger and $2 frosted beer, Beach Bistro and Bridge St. Bistro for fancy dining ($$), the Sandbar for dining outdoors at the beach, Harry's for apps and a drink, Island Gourmet Grill and Scott's Deli for delivery and if you go into Sarasota, The Blue Rooster for soul food and live blues music is a blast. This place is perfect and I'd give anything to live there full time.

I couldn’t have described our cottage any better than you just did. We also love the screened in porch and have met many wonderful people strolling by on their way to the beach. You have so many great recommendations and I have enjoyed them all except for the Blue Rooster which I will now put on my places to try out list. We truly appreciate our returning guests and look forward to seeing you in 2018!
