Owner of Sunset (417775) and Sunrise (24779) Cottages purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner of Sunset (417775) and Sunrise (24779) Cottages chose Holmes Beach
We purchased Sunrise Cottage because of the feeling you get driving across the island/mainland bridge. It’s the beginning of the rainbow. Sunrise cottage is the pot of gold awaiting you.
What makes this House unique
Staying in a cottage provides privacy while offering guests an opportunity to be part of a small community of friendly people who truly value their quality of life on the island. From the cottage guests can walk across the street to the beach to catch a spectacular sunset or walk one block in the other direction to peruse the many shops or enjoy the restaurants. Two guests once left in the morning to walk to breakfast and didn’t return until late afternoon because they strolled from shop to shop, enjoying wares and conversation with shop owners. It's nice to attain at least a temporary respite from fast food joints, high rises, and traffic - at Sunrise Cottage it doesn't take long to convert to 'island time'.

10 Star Oasis
I wish we could give 10 stars to Lauren and her perfect property! We lucked up and got to slide into Anna Marie Island because a doctor from NY had to cancel due to being in the front line of the Covid-19 pandemic. We said a prayer of thanks and protection for him and his family. We sheltered in place at Sunrise Cottage for a week and did not want to leave! During our stay, the only place we went was a short walk to the beach. Absolutely no physical interaction with anyone during our stay. No shopping, no take out, no food delivery. It was the escape we needed, being a small business owner of a business we had to close down.
The accommodations were more than we could have dreamed and the attention to detail was impeccable. The private pool, the top notch Egyptian bed linens, the Lacoste towels, spices to cook with, in this dream cottage contributed to the absolute best getaway we've had in years.
We are already making plans to return in the fall.
We talked and texted with Lauren a couple of times and she was the sweetest lady! We kept her abreast of the beach closure to the public. Residents still walked the beautiful desolate beach.
We can't wait to go back to experience the island life and resources when this pandemic is over.
We pray for Lauren and her investment of the perfect Oasis. Sunrise Cottage.
Best location on AMI
Great property (exactly as shown and described) and located within walking distance of everything AMI has to offer - and free bus if you get tired walking. Thanks Lauren!
Magnificent Cottage Just what we Needed! Feb ‘20
Where to begin, the cottage is clean of utmost importance to me. I generally cook, every essential I needed was provided. The space is comfortable, showers had good water pressure and ample hot water.
If there was anything we needed without doubt Lauren would have been diligent in providing it.
Most obvious was Lauren’s commitment to us and the personal care she took with every detail of our stay.
The pool was crystal clear and walk in warm, the ocean is cold this time of year, a pool is a must in my opinion.
Aside from the other positives of this cottage it was the location itself ; it was quiet although located downtown across the road to the beach. Although we had our car it was convenient to walk to any restaurant we wanted, most of our favorite restaurants were located near the cottage. Free Transportation was steps from our door if we chose to go to the ends of the island. This may not seem like much, however the island gets busy moving around can take time. Parking becomes a consideration as well.
We have a friend who judges restaurants with a question; “would you eat there again”? With that we booked four weeks for ‘21 in Lauren’s Cottage. That pretty much tells it all.
We looked in the neighborhood for similar properties. There was nothing comparable to the price for what you get here. Your own slice of Privacy completely secluded in the most desirable part of the island on top of the beach in a clean well stocked home.
Lauren thank you for everything, for sharing your cottage and being such a wonderful human being. You are the as special as AnnaMaria itself.
See you next year!

A wonderfully relaxing experience
The property was exactly what we were hoping for: private, comfortable, elegant, well-equipped kitchen with everything needed to cook, quality linens and lovely decorating touches.... we started relaxing as soon as we arrived. The pool was wonderful and the design of the yard makes it totally private. A small issue was addressed immediately and efficiently by Lauren. The location was perfect: less than 300 steps from an uncrowded beach, and within walking distance of the best Italian Market/Deli, Vinny's Italian Market and several other great little restaurants. The beach cart was great to take the comfortable beach chairs and towels to the beach. We were recommended many excellent restaurants. All in all, a wonderful experience! We are already looking at our next dates to come back! Thank you Lauren for sharing your lovely home! Happy New Year!!!
Wonderful stay with our 6 month old!
We had a wonderful time staying here for our first family vacation with our 6 month old. The pool was perfect for him. During his nap time we enjoyed walks on the beach with our stroller, which was just a short walk away. Beautiful, clean home, Lauren was very available and helpful. Great oasis to relax and get away from snow and everyday busyness.
This cottage is so centrally located that it is within 250 yards of the Gulf of Mexico, restaurants, shopping, art galleries and a gym, yet the cottage itself is a private tropical oasis nested inside Florida's finest flora.
