About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Ground Level Private Home With Heated Pool, Spa And Boat Dock

Sea Haze Cottage is a completely renovated and updated private beach cottage, that is just perfect for a family or for one or two couples. It has a great room that leads to a large screened porch overlooking the deck, pool, spa and canal.

The cottage is located in the quiet north end of Anna Maria and is only a 2 minute walk to the bay beach and is still walking distance to Pine Avenue, the City Pier, and restaurants. You can bicycle to the grocery store if you choose.

Sea Haze Cottage is luxurious, yet comfortable and casual. The fully equipped kitchen features granite counters and a butcher block island.

There are three bedrooms, a master with french door walkout to the porch and pool and an ensuite bath with pedestal sink and large shower. The guest bedroom features a queen bed, and 2 piece ensuite bath. The third bedroom has twin beds, and also acts as an office.

The main bathroom has a tub and shower combination.

All bedrooms and living area are equipped with hd web enabled TV's with cable and Netflix access.

The large dining and living area also opens to the screened porch through french doors where there is a table for al fresco dining a cozy sitting area to curl up with a book, and a bar with a refrigerator, tv and sound bar.

The large private deck around the pool, leads to the dock on the canal. The backyard faces west so you can lounge in the afternoon and evening sun around the pool.

Our canal is wide and quiet and leads out to Bimini Bay which leads directly out to Tampa Bay.

The dock will handle a 23' boat. It's a great spot to sit and fish or just relax and watch the herons and pelicans swoop past.

About Mary Mooney

We are a retired Canadian couple from Ontario, who spend our spring, summer and fall in St Andrews, New Brunswick, and our winters now in Anna Maria. We first visited Anna Maria in 2010, and fell in love with this laid back community on the ocean. We spend 4 or 5 months a year here, and make our home available to others when we cannot be here.

Mary Mooney purchased this house in 2013

Why Mary Mooney chose Anna Maria Island

We wanted a ground level home, with a spot for our boat, on a canal, with a pool, and with a west facing private back yard for afternoon and evening sun. We wanted enough space to be comfortable, and to entertain guests, especially with our great outdoor living space at Sea Haze.

What makes this house unique

There are many rentals, and some nice ones, available on Anna Maria, but this isn't a rental. This is our home. You will see and feel the difference, the moment you step foot in Sea Haze Cottage. We are making it available when we cannot be here.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for opening the door of your home to guests. It may not be easy to do.It is a lovely place, we appreciate the house and the island. We hope to come back again, even if it is far from France

All that and more!

  • 5 of 5

I really cannot say enough about this home and it's owners Mark & Mary. This is not a rental property this is a home. I was impressed by how immaculately clean this home was. Not even a dusty baseboard. The decor is shabby chic yet super comfortable. The kitchen was extremely well appointed and the top of the line appliances and gas grill allowed us to cook in most meals with total ease. (The only suggestion would be a medium size pot and a few more glass microwaveable mixing bowls). The pool was so nice and relaxing we had a hard time peeling ourselves away to go to the beach. The rooms were well appointed, adequate storage and closet space and comfortable bedding. Every this was perfect!

The only con was having to drive to the Gulf Beach. Due to a neighboring home rennovation, the bay beach nearest the house was a construction site (not to mention a 6:45am wake up call every morning).

I really cannot say enough about this home. We really loved it!

Thank you Mary & Mark for letting us share your home!

Awesome House / Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 traveling from Colorado - 2 adults and 2 high school age kids. First time on Anna Maria Island. Mary & Mark's house is super awesome. Looks just like in the photos - super clean - and really quiet. Basically walk across the street for access to the bayside beach. We rented bikes for the week at Beach Bums and parked the car for the entire week. We were able to bike to the gulf side beaches, bike to all the restaurants and general store. House was very comfortable - we used the hot tub every day - and just watched endless bird life fly by the canal - great blue herons, osprey, parrots, etc....hope to make it back next year!

Fabulous Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Haze proved to be the perfect vacation home for our family. The owners have succeeded in creating such an inviting living environment that it was just as sad to lock that door for the last time as it was to leave the island. Whether we were inside the home or outside enjoying the pool, their attention to detail left us feeling pampered and spoiled. We will definitely be going back and highly recommend this fabulous vacation home to anyone planning that perfect vacation.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been going to beautiful Anna Maria Island for over 5 years and have stayed in many places. Sea Haze has by far been the best!! Everything about this gem of a house is perfect. Sea Haze is a very tastefully newly renovated bungalow that is very inviting, and extremely comfortable. We were so impressed with the attention to detail in everything about Sea Haze. It is so beautifully decorated it should be in a magazine. The open concept living/dining area lead to a screened- in porch and onto the beautiful pool and the canal out back. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting by the pool, or having an evening cocktail on the dock.

Since we love to cook we were more than delighted to find the best equipped kitchen we have ever had renting!

Sea Haze is located within walking distance to the beautiful beaches, stores, tennis courts, the peer and restaurants!

We will definitely be going back and highly recommend this gorgeous perfect beach home to anyone looking for the perfect place to relax and enjoy AMI!

A Place to Renew!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea Haze. This rental is the perfect retreat on AMI. This is a totally renovated bungalow both indoor and outdoors. It is beautifully decorated with open concept living areas and comfortable and quiet sleeping accommodations all on one level. The generous backyard backs onto a canal with a lovely new pool and landscaping. The location is close to all amenities on the island including a variety of restaurants and of course, beautiful beaches.
