About the Property
4Bed/3Bath~new Pool/spa~Less Than One Minute From Beach!
*Ashore Thing* Beach Cottage is a 4Bed/3Bath home which has been meticulously and lovingly renovated. It is furnished 'Beachy Chic' and stocked with all the amenities you could want. The interior is a reflection of the beautiful Island with hues of azure blue to sunshine yellow, all to bring the tropical outdoors in. This is our 2nd home so unlike other vacation properties with just the basics, it is equipped with everything to make your vacation stress free and memorable with all the comforts of home. The first thing that will take your breath away is the brand new Pool/Spa (one of the largest on the Island) with large pavered deck area and lots of spacious seating. As you enter Ashore Thing, you will find the first of two spacious living areas with lots of comfortable seating and a flatscreen. The second open family room has plenty of space for everyone to gather and relax on new comfy furnishings. Dining in? The kitchen with new granite and stainless appliances featuring premiere cookware with all the accoutrements will make the chef in you happy. For grilling we have you covered with both gas and charcoal grills. Now you must make the tough decision of dining indoors on the new reclaimed wood table or alfresco poolside. Take a quick stroll to see the sunset before dinner. The beach is less than one minute away. Of course you will want to visit one of the numerous restaurants on the Island to experience some sumptuous local fare. Before the day is over enjoy a luxurious soak in the spa. Let the gentle swirl of the spa prepare you for the nights slumber, an ending to a perfect day before you slip into your cozy bed!
Wake up and take an early morning stroll on the beach, as the sun rises you will see the island come to life.
Spend the day on the white powder sands looking out at the gulf as you listen to the waves lapping at the shore; you might just catch a glimpse of dolphins frolicking in the waves. If you are visiting during the months' of May -October you might get to witness the Turtle Hatchlings going back to sea. This is truly a spectacular sight! Beach cart, chairs, umbrellas, toys and towels supplied. All you need is your bathing suit. Keep your frozen daiquiris on ice at the cottage, you are so close that it is less than a one minute walk to get a fresh one.
Our cottage is so ideally located. You are just four doors to the Turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico and two blocks from the Bay. Within walking distance to shopping, dining and the free island trolley. Anna Maria Island truly is a 'Hidden Gem' there is so much to do and see here. Go fishing at the Rod & Reel Pier or visit Ginny and Jane E's at the old IGA for coffee, pastries and dine amongst the eclectic furnishings which are also available for sale. Rent a bike or just stroll to explore the Island, it is very pedestrian friendly. Take in Main Street on the North End or Bridge Street by Bradenton Beach, it is all so close on our 7-by 2-mile Island. Kayak, fish, golf or just relax and do nothing, it is up to you. Ponce de Leon supposedly named the Island Anna Maria after the queen of Charles II of Spain Marie Anna. We like to think it is the hidden Fountain of Youth as you will leave here Refreshed and Rejuvenated! You will know that it is *Ashore Thing* when you stay at this lovely beach cottage on AMI.

Being on the Island is like being in Paradise, you can do as much or as little as you'd like. Rent a bike and explore the island or hop on our free trolley and sit back and enjoy the ride. You can hop off anytime to shop and dine and just get back on when you're ready to go. Our cottage is located west of Gulf Dr. so no busy streets to cross. Feel the need for a thrill ride? Disney, Universal and Busch Gardens are all approx. 1-2 hours away. If you're looking to take in some culture, we have some of the best Museums around. The Dali Museum is a must see.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We are a family from Tampa who have been coming to the Island for over twenty years. Having traveled to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world from Aruba to Hawaii we realize that one of the most coveted is right here in our own backyard. So on Memorial Day of 2013 *Ashore Thing* Beach Cottage became our 2nd home. My family has fond memories of AMI and we hope to make more in the future. We are opening up our home so you can some make Great Memories of your own.
Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
The Location!!! We wanted a place that would reflect all the charm of *Old Florida* and found it in *Ashore Thing* Beach Cottage. This lovingly renovated cottage has all the charm of a true beachside cottage plus all of the modern amenities one could want. Anna Maria boasts some of the best Sugary white powder sand beaches along its 7 mile stretch. A 'Hidden Gem' tucked away but convenient to everything if you must leave our Paradise.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our spacious two story cottage is ground level with only one step on the 1st floor for easier accessibility. We are only 4 doors to the Turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico and a block away from shopping/restaurants/trolley stop.
