Capt. Edward Steenstra, III purchased this cottage in 1970
Historic old Florida beach community with many restaurants, shops, church, within 10 minutes biking /walking distance.
Relax and unwind at the beach.
This place was a perfect little getaway. It was clean, comfortable mattresses, great location and it even had WiFi, which was great for kiddos!! I would definitely stay here again when we come back down to this area.
The house was perfectly located near the tip of the island, very accessible to the bay or the gulf. Capt. Ed had bikes for our use and the house was equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our time on the island. Would definitely consider staying here again on future visits.
Absolutely fabulous. The cottage has everything you need.
Spotless. Great communication. Short walk to trolley.
Great, safe area. Bed so incredibly comfy. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
From the moment I pulled up in my car, I felt right at home in this perfect beach cottage! Anything and everything you could possibly need is there! The advertisement is so true - just bring a bathing suit and flip flops. While visiting AMI, be sure to check out the yummy food at Eat Here, Ginny's, and Poppo's. Thank you, Captain Ed - we are already planning our next visit!
We loved this quaint cottage. It had everything we needed. All we had to bring was food and drinks. The king bed with its soft bedding was great for a good night's sleep. Perfect location!!! 1 block from ocean on bay side and Rod & Reel Pier. Short walk to end of street leads to beach path to Bean Point which is not crowded, peaceful and what I consider the most beautiful place created by God. We so enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back.
I was a little nervous at first because I have never used home away not have I stayed at someone's property before. My first impression was that it was perfect. Nice little cottage, tidy, everything you could possibly need which makes traveling by plane much more easier. To be honest I didn't really need anything but my own bathroom supplies. Ed was fabulous. Provided beach towels, chairs, coolers, cups, cooking supplies, washer and dryer. I loved this property and will definitely stay again and again. In fact I am already planning my next stay with Ed's Ballyhoo!
Located on the tip of Anna Maria Island. Enjoy world class fishing, dining, shopping, or just relax on the beach.
