Car: Recommended

There is much to do .... or not to do ... your choice. Relaxing on the beach located just across the street is very popular; numerous great restaurants located nearby on this 7-mile long island; a short hop over to Bradenton and there are many other choices. Our island has no high rises ... a height limitation of 38', and even though we have many shops and stores, the island is not a "bed of commercialism". Our scenery and eco adventures, fishing and shelling are among other popular past times.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: You can see us above with our rescue Westie, Zoey. We are full-time permanent residents of Anna Maria Island and live only 15 minutes away in event of emergency, and we take great pride in offering a squeaky-clean and convenient place to enjoy your vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Bradenton Beach, FL, USA:
We bought this cottage because it was a challenge to change it from an ugly frog to the lovely princess mermaid it has become! We knew we could transform the rough jewel into a warm and romantic place for others (many from northern areas) to escape and enjoy the warm climates of Anna Maria Island. It is comfortable and CLOSE TO THE BEACH. We provide all amenities: free Wi-Fi, TV's, washer/dryer, all beach equipment and a beach wagon to haul necessities to the beach. The kitchen is more than adequate for those who want to cook. We have great sunset views and gorgeous Caribbean-looking water. While we do have a three-day minimum, you may check in and out any day of the week that meets your travel plans.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Little Mermaid is no more than 50 steps to the beach. It's a compact, well-laid-out cottage. The large bedroom has a king bed, private bath with tiled shower, lots of drawers for your clothes, nice tropically landscaped and fenced yard, private free washer and dryer and private parking ten steps from the front door.
