Charming cottage on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed stay at the Sea Garden Cottage. It was very clean and had the feel of "Old Florida". The location is fantastic, having your own path to the beach through a beautiful yard. Great size for a family of 4. Everything you need is supplied (a cooler, bikes, fishing rods, a well stocked kitchen, beach items and a cart to wheel everything down to the beach). There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived! Kari is great to work with and helped us with our concerns after Hurricane Irma. She even sent us pictures of the property showing everything was in order. This is our 4th visit to the island and one of our favorite houses to stay on AMI!

Some of our favorite restaurants: The Donut Experiment, The Beach House, Bridge Tender Inn, Two Scoops.

Some of our favorite Activities: Mote Aquarium (definitely go out on the boat with the Marine Biologist), spending hours at the beach and riding our bikes around the island.

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Sea Garden cottage is in a perfect location on Anna Maria. Walking distance to Pine St and all the shops plus there is a direct access to the beach. The area between the house and the beach looks like a beautiful tropical park.

The cottage has everything needed for a relaxing week.

We will return!

A Fabulous Four Day Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family's stay at the Sea Garden Cottage was everything we hoped for... and MORE! The location is convenient to shopping and restaurants... but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. We really appreciated the beach chairs and cart for hauling them. We were also very pleased with Kari's instantaneous response to our WiFi connection issue. The cottage had everything that we needed to be comfortable and happy... including a Monopoly game for the one cool and cloudy morning during our stay. We had a chain come off one of the bikes... but were able to find a "bike tool kit" in the cottage to fix it quickly. It was little things like that that really impressed us. We also loved the brand new appliances... including the washer and dryer. It was nice to take home clean dry bathing suits, instead of wet ones wadded up in our suitcases! We would LOVE to return to the Sea Garden Cottage and stay a LOT longer!!

Cozy clean beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a few days at Sea Garden Cottage in early Nov. 2017, our first time to Anna Maria Island. Loved it and want to return! Cottage is really clean and comfy, easy parking, quiet neighborhood. Back of cottage has huge screened porch to kick back and relax. Walk out the back door by lovely landscaped areas right to the clean, wide beach. Beautiful sunsets. Lots of shade trees and flowering plants surround the cottage. We had a wonderful time! **Owner helpful, and responsive to questions; quick refund of deposit, too.

Amazing beachfront property with unbelievable charm!!!

  • 5 of 5

We quickly fell in love with the cottage and the property. The cottage charm, the characteristics of island life many years ago preserved into a quaint, cozy place. Right on the gulf shores. Everything you might need was provided from household supplies, bikes, coolers, flashlights, you name it. Kari was great to deal from booking to responsiveness to any question or concern. Lastly, the outdoor living areas of the property were quite amazing. Manicured landscaping with a beautiful lawn lead right to the beach.
