Third time to Seahorse

  • 5 of 5

Once again, Seahorse did not disappoint. It is a delightful cottage in a quiet neighborhood and just a short walk to the beach. The covered dining area by the pool is perfect for al fresco meals. The pool area starts to get sunny at about 10:45AM and stays sunny until late afternoon. Pool temperature was perfect! The new floats were fabulous for basking in the sun. The only downsides were the grill (didn't perform well, even with a new tank of propane), lack of basics like toilet paper/dish machine soap/laundry detergent (asked us to get a load of laundry going when we left...thankfully, we bought detergent). Just little things. NOT a big deal, at all. Love this cottage and have booked again for next year. Highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Marcia and Family, We are delighted that you enjoyed yet another visit to Seahorse Cottage and thanks for booking again for a 4th visit. The pool is the perfect oasis but the short walk to the beach makes it difficult to choose between the two but you can’t beat the Sunsets at Bean point. They are spectacular!! We will certainly look into the grill situation and please, in the future, let us know if you are having an issue with anything at the home. Our management company has an office right on Pine Ave so they would be glad to help out in any situation. We do supply a “starter kit” of TP and paper towels etc. to tide you over until you make it to the grocery store but we do not supply a full weeks worth of these items. We do ask the outgoing guests to start a load of laundry before they leave as it is difficult to complete all of the laundry in the window between departures and arrivals when we have back to back bookings. Just as the guest before you started the laundry which allowed us to facilitate the early arrival that you asked for we were able to get the next guest in a bit earlier thanks to a simple thing like you loading the washing machine and dishwasher on your departure. We do appreciate the cooperation of all of guests to try to help their fellow travelers.

The home was well stocked and very welcoming.

We wouldn't hesitate to reccomend the home and the service provided.

We would happily book this property again.

Owner's Response: Martin, Thank you for taking the time in reviewing Seahorse Cottage, I’m glad that you enjoyed vacationing in our home. We really like the location being in the quiet part of the island but still very close to the beach and Rod and Reel Pier. Hopefully you got to see some amazing sunsets on Bean Point. Please contact Ellie, Suzanne and Bob next time you stay on Anna Maria Island.

Great villa for two couples

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this delightful villa for two weeks with another couple. The two double rooms have modern en suites and are very comfortable. The living area is spacious with plenty of seating. The pool is larger than average with plenty of shaded seating if required. The house is well equipped with everything required for a beach holiday. You are a 2 minute walk from a beach and a similar distance from the rod and reel pier for a cool beer and a great meal. We would definitely rent this property again.

Owner's Response: Charles, Thank you for taking the time to review Seahorse Cottage; we are happy you enjoyed your stay at our home! We love the tranquility of the pool area and also having the options of relaxing in the shade or basking in the sun. As much as we enjoy the Rod and Reel or walking to Pine Ave we also like to hop on the free trolley to spend some time on Bridge Street. There are some good food choices including our favorite Blue Marlin restaurant for some fantastic local cuisine. So may choices on this Island! It’s a good thing that our home is located so close to one of the prettiest walking beaches around! Please come back and stay with us again.

Beautiful Seahorse Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had two blissful weeks staying at Seahorse Cottage. The Cottage is beautifully laid out and furnished. It felt very luxurious and the kitchen was very well stocked and had great appliances which made eating in or out using the outdoor terrace a joy. The private swimming pool kept my two children amused for hours. The cottage was well located being only 5 mins walk to the Rod & Reel pier (fishing off the pier was definitely a favourite acitivity). I can not recommend Seahorse Cottage enough, it was pleasure to stay there and made our holiday at Anna Maria Island very special. We hope to visit again.

Owner's Response: Emma, Thank you for your kind review and I’m glad that you found our home so blissful. We also love the location of Seahorse Cottage being so close to the Rod and Reel pier and Bean Point. The Rod and Reel has very good food and is a nice place to relax and meet some locals. Bean Point is our favorite beach with stunning sunsets! We would love for you and your family to stay at our home again during your next holiday! Just call Ellie, Suzanne or Bob and they will take care of everything.

Beautiful beach cottage, very short walk to best beach on island, upscale appliances and furnishings

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sea Horse Cottage in August with our daughter and her husband. Everything was as described but better! Cottage is small but feels very spacious. Beautiful furnishings, upscale appliances (might even need directions for the stove / oven!), beautiful pool and backyard, all the beach chairs, floats, wagons you could want. Love the North Shore area. Very quiet, close to everything. Short walk to Bean Point beach which is an amazing beach with beautiful views, and to Bay Park and piers on the bay side. We have stayed many times in various rentals on Anna Maria and Sea Horse is the best by far. Will look forward to staying her again in the future.

Owner's Response: Diane and Mike, Thanks so much for staying at our home and for reviewing Seahorse Cottage. We’re so glad you found the cottage to your liking and that everything you needed was provided. We too love the North end of the island and take advantage of the short stroll to Bean Point and the amazing beaches and dazzling Sunsets! I am sure you took advantage of the great little restaurants at the end of the piers on the bay side but if you did not you have to try the Grouper sandwich at the Rod N Reel pier. It is to die for, although there are so many great restaurants within walking distance it is sometimes difficult to choose! Hope you also took advantage of the trolley to get to those places that are a bit too far to walk to. It does run the entire length of Anna Maria Island so it is a great way to get around and it is FREE! We look forward to your return visit and again, thank you!

From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'… The island consists of 3 cities, Bradenton Beach being the southernmost, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria City on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique and charming shops and restaurants. Anna Maria Island has miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions. Located close to all the major attractions, yet far from the maddening crowds make the Gulf Island Beaches the ideal vacation spot.
