About the Property
2.5BR/2BA With New Heated Saltwater Pool
DayDream Cottage is a wonderful place to enjoy all Anna Maria Island has to offer. Less than a three minute stroll from the white sandy beaches and stunning sunsets of the Gulf coast, the property has a landscaped, private back yard with heated salt water swimming pool, outdoor shower for rinsing off beach sand and a propane BBQ grill and cast Iron Patio table that comfortably fits six. There's even a Sunsetter awning over the front patio where you can relax and take in the surroundings of the Island.
New to the rental market in the Fall of 2012 this adorable, newly updated single family cottage comfortably sleeps six and offers all the conveniences of home. DayDream Cottage accommodates 6+ people with 2+ bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The freshly updated, spacious master bedroom features a luxurious King sized bed, vaulted ceilings and connected office and laundry area. The second bedroom has a new versatile twin over full size bunk bed and another single bed with pull-out trundle. A flexible third bedroom/kids TV room has a trundle daybed that converts to either 2 singles or a king sized bed. To ensure a restful night’s sleep we equipped all beds with new, quality mattresses and quality linens. There is also another full sized sofa bed in the living room.
The cottage has lots of windows and doors to let in the natural light. The bright airy eat-in kitchen features seating for six. The fully equipped and recently updated room includes custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, fridge with filtered water and ice-maker, Bosch dishwasher, electric cook top with gas oven, microwave, coffeemaker(s), new anodized aluminum cookware, powerful KitchenAid blender for fruit smoothies or frozen Margaritas, quality utensils, dishes, cutlery and crystal stemware (as well as plastic stemware for all those sunsets at the beach you won't want to miss!)
Daydream Cottage is the perfect place for a family vacation. It is located on a private cul de sac away from the traffic of Gulf Drive while still being close to shopping, restaurants, supermarkets and local attractions. For your entertainment - inside there are three HD flat screen TVs including a 46' Samsung, a Blu-ray player, Denon amplifier with surround sound, docking station and easy to operate remote, two DVD players in the kids rooms, a VCR, plus several movies, games and books for the kids. There is also a portable docking station for your iPod or MP3 player to enjoy in any room or out on the patio.
Just outside the Florida room awaits your new private heated saltwater pool nestled among luscious tropical palms. For your convenience the pool house/large shed in the back contains two adult bikes, three kid’s bikes, helmets, beach chairs, umbrellas, and a beach cart to make the short walk easy. Beach (and bath) towels are included inside master bedroom's spacious closets along with new (he) front load washer/dryer and an iron. The quiet, white sandy beaches and the Gulf's emerald green waters are only a short block and a half stroll away. To enjoy all the amazing sights of the island, Anna Maria offers a free trolley for you to easily get around which stops literally steps away from your front door.
The house will feel more like a home away from home than a rental property once you unpack and stock the main frig and wine frig with all of your favorites; or if you prefer - dine out at one of the many quaint bistros or beachfront dining spots that the Guest Book provides information on. We have also included brochures on many local attractions including Aquariums, Marine Rescues and Turtle Hatching & Island Sea-Bird Wildlife tours. The cottage is an hour from Tampa's Busch Gardens and Water Parks, (and Orlando is only an hour and 45 minutes away!).

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
We love coming to Anna Maria Island for it's 'Old Florida charm' and 'laid back vibe'. We fell in love with the cottage for the open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, plentiful windows, private back yard, lush landscaping, and spacious master bedroom. The Home has been newly renovated with new heated saltwater pool and paver patio, high-end appliances and quartz countertops through out. You'll fall in love with it's charm just like we did.
