A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Shell Cottage is a home away from home! If you are looking for a beach cottage environment that is clean, relaxing, close to the beach and near great restaurants, this is the place for you! With three bedrooms (one a master) it is the perfect for a family vacation or trip with some friends. The home is well decorated, well furnished with comfortable beds and linens, and the topping on the cake is the wonderful pool and patio area in the backyard. When your family and friends are spent from a full day out and are too lazy to walk to the beach, just walk out unto your beautiful private patio and pool! Let the kids swim while you grill dinner, or dip your feet in as you sip on a nice glass of wine. There is so much to do on the island, but having a great spot to come back to at the end of the day is priceless. I would recommend this jewel to anyone!

Perfect for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation on Anna Maria Island was absolutely perfect. We are so happy we decided to rent a house versus staying at a hotel. Shell Cottage had everything we needed and with kids as great as the beaches were the pool was a must have. We did check out a couple of the delicious restaurants on the island but having a pool along with a gas grill and outdoor dining area at the cottage was amazing. The beach was a short walk from our quiet street and we were so happy the house had chairs to bring along. We made sure we were at the beach every night to see all the amazing sunsets. From the pool, kitchen and living area to the bedrooms we truly felt at home. We are already planning our return trip and can’t wait.

Thank you,

Jason, Tina, Avery and Malloy Ickowitz

Charming, great pool, close to beach

  • 5 of 5

I’ve stayed at Shell Cottage several times, and always look forward to a visit. The owner is a professional interior decorator, and the house is beautifully furnished with traditional furniture, local art, and coastal decorative touches. The house is set up well for families, with a comfortable master and adjoining bathroom on one side of the house, a large open living room/dining room/kitchen in the middle, and two bedrooms and another bathroom on the other side. The backyard and pool area is the best part of the property. The outdoor space is a lush tropical landscape. It is surrounded by shrubs and palm trees – it’s like your own private oasis. There’s a gas grill and outdoor seating, so you can cook dinner and hang out at the pool. The house is in a quiet neighborhood, within walking distance to the beach. The property is very clean, and well maintained. Highly recommended.

Glorious Girls trip at Shell Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My girls weekend getaway on Anna Maria Island was absolutely glorious. Shell

Cottage had everything we needed and more. The beach was a 2 minute walk

from our quiet street. We had our own private oasis with a backyard pool and

grill. With many great restaurants nearby we dined out a bit but my

favorite evenings were spent at Shell Cottage. Cooking was easy with a well

appointed kitchen, dining was even better with such a beautifully decorated

living space. Finally the beds were extremely comfortable with great linens.

The attention to detail made this place stand out from all the other Florida

rentals I've been to. Thanks Susan and Bob we will definitely be back!

Very quiet street and great location from beach. Great backyard for hanging by the pool.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice location to everything. Only issue was house rule of nothing under 74 degrees. Made it a tad hot to sleep at night. Other than that very good.
