About Missy Jones

We retired to Sarasota in 2012 from the New York, New Jersey area. Joan previously worked in Higher Education & Sal worked as a manager in a Utility Company. We retired to Sarasota for the weather and culture. Some of our favorite things to do are going to the theatre, dining out, and going to the area's beautiful beaches.

Why Missy Jones chose Anna Maria

The property is lovingly maintained by the owners. It is newly painted and the furnishings are kept in excellent yet comfortable condition.

The owners live close by in Sarasota and are ready to respond if there is any issue that may need their immediate attention.

What makes this cottage unique

Very close to the beach. You don't even have to cross a street. The beach is at the end of the block. This is good for older folks and children.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great place! So close to everything: the best beach, the best coffee shop, a free trolley to the pier, Holmes Beach or all the way down to Sarasota. You don't need a car to go to the best restaurants on the island. Comfortable, private and intimate.

We came down after booking the Cottage on line and were very happy with it. Short walk to the beach,restuarants and just walking on the beach. Perfect little cozy away from home type of place with friendly people everywhere.My only suggestion would be to have bikes to use as renting is a hassel.But you can really walk or take the free trolly everywhere.Would recommend it to everyone!!!
