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.

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.

Perfect little cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little beachside cottage! Great location! We rode our bikes to dinner every day. Walked out of our back door & watched the sunset from the beach each evening. Very clean & cozy. We can't wait to come back!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to AMI turned out to be very enjoyable because we think we found the perfect place to stay. The house was clean and neat and had everything we needed to make it a very pleasant stay. One of the provided beach umbrellas broke while we were there and after a message to the owners, 3 umbrellas to choose from were delivered within a short time period.

The lawn was beautiful and the walk to the beach was so convenient and easy. Plus the beach area was not very crowded at any time while we were there and we really enjoyed that compared to our previous congested beach vacation spots. I loved taking photographs of the sunset each evening.

We were very pleased with everything about our stay and look forward to booking this location again next year.

Perfect location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this adorable cottage! It had everything we needed for the house and the beach. It's on the northernmost end of the island - within walking distance to Bean Point and Pine Avenue and we walked 5 minutes down the beach to Sandbar for a cocktail and back.

The backyard is gorgeous and the trail to the beach is a beautiful walk.
