Anna Maria Island is located on the Central West Coast of Florida nestled between the tropical blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the West and Tampa Bay to the North. Once a best –kept secret among local Floridians, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. 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. Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset all in a day… You need never leave the island to find fun and relaxation. Our island is only 7 miles long and no more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of waves and visions of the sunset in every location. Enjoy a day at the beach and watch the kids play in the sand. Walk along pristine beaches and dine in award-winning restaurants, Enjoy fresh grouper sandwiches on a pier and sipping martinis while enjoying live music. Go shopping in our specialty shops and boutiques all along the island. We even have a Free Trolley to take you where you want to go. The friendly environment and endless activities will keep you coming back for more. Hop aboard and experience island paradise!

Super cute house with the BEST location!

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful and had all the "stuff" we needed for a comfortable stay. Location to Bean Point was perfect. We lived lounging by the pool after hanging out on the beach all day.

Owner's Response: Spring, Thank you for your review on Seahorse Cottage and I’m happy you found it comfortable. Bean Point is a nice uncrowded beach and a perfect spot to watch the sunset! Rod and Reel Pier is a great place to grab a bite and watch for dolphins and manatees and it’s only a short walk away. Please remember to call Ellie, Suzanne and Bob when you are planning your next trip to Anna Maria.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Loved Seahorse Cottage! With two queen rooms with attached baths, it is perfect for two couples. It is impeccably decorated, clean, and comfortable, both inside and out. We especially enjoyed the covered patio for morning coffee, afternoon cocktails by the pool, and again in the evenings. The expansive area under cover came in handy since we had a rainy week. We were able to get to the beach a few times, and it was only 2-3 houses up to the beach access and on to a truly spectacular beach with a panoramic view! The house was well equipped with a beach cart, umbrellas, 4 chairs, and a few coolers, as well as pool mats and noodles for the pool. Other than airport travel and one grocery store run, we traveled the island by golf cart all week....really fun! Although the weather didn't cooperate, the cottage is lovely, location ideal, and the island a perfect setting for a relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: Patricia and Friends, We do appreciate you taking the time to review Seahorse Cottage and we are thrilled that you loved our little spot of paradise! We do use the area by the pool quite often for breakfast, evening cocktails and evening meals when it is raining or sometimes when we have had enough sun for the day. Glad you found everything you needed at the cottage and we look forward to your next visit! We will do our best to try to get the weather to cooperate a little more the next time!!

We do love the pool area but we hope you got to enjoy the incredible beaches just steps away and the great shops and restaurants within walking distance. I know there is so much to do on Anna Maria it is hard to fit it all in along with some RELAXATION!! See you soon!!

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.

We had an absolutely fantastic holiday on Annamaria in this special property.

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.
