This Cozy 2 Bedroom/1 Bath Cottage is clean, quaint, and only steps to the beach (2 houses to be exact)! It exudes that 'Island Feel' from the moment you lay eyes on it! Outfitted with multiple areas to take in the Island air. There is a screened lanai just off of the living room and side patio/grill area with plenty of seating options. This is a Great location, West of Gulf Drive in the city of Anna Maria. A short block to the sign of the Mermaid, Slims, Sandbar, other restaurants, ice cream, shops, trolley and more. This little cutie sleeps up to 4 mermaids.
This property is professionally managed by Anna Maria Island Accommodations, located on the sunny and beautiful Anna Maria Island.
This cottage was just right. It was recently renovated, had everything we needed, was comfy, and had a cute lanai and nice outdoor space, too. It is just steps to the beach and close to Ginny and Jane E's, where you can get great sticky buns and other baked goods, wonderful breakfast and lunch items and cool gifts. We would definitely stay here again.
The apartment was renovated before our arrival. Everything very tasteful. New appliances in the kitchen.
It's wonderful for a week ore more holiday on this wonderful island. We enjoyed breakfast on the screened lanai.
Just a few steps to the most beautiful beach section of the island.
Thanks to Matt from annamariaparadies for supporting us in everything.
We definitly will come back!

We loved our stay at Mermaid's Purse! It was so comfortable and had everything you needed. The location was perfect; just two houses from one of the prettiest beaches we have seen. Beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas were furnished, which was great. Check in and check out was easy and fast. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a laid-back, relaxing vacation!
We stayed at the Mermaid's Purse for a week during Spring Break. We had a 2-year-old and an elderly grandparent in tow and the place was simply perfect for our stay. Grandpa stayed in the guest bedroom and our toddler stayed with us in the master in a crib we rented. (You can rent all sorts of kids stuff on the island). We ate breakfast on the lanai (screened porch) every morning then walked the few yards to the beach for a full day of activities. Before dinner, we wandered back to the beach to watch the gorgeous sunsets.
The location can't be beat. The cottage had everything we needed: beach chairs, sand toys, beach towels and kitchen items we neglected to buy. You can walk or bike to great shops and delis from the cottage.
Although we ate out almost every night, our favorite dinner was the one we made at the cottage. We grilled steaks and asparagus on the grill and roasted potatoes in the kitchen, then ate by candlelit on the screened-in porch. Perfection. And no need to worry about reservations.
The bedding was comfortable and the air conditioner worked great the one night we used it (we prefer to spend our days and evenings without air conditioning and with the windows open, feels more like a vacation!).
The decor was a bit kitschy, which is the only negative in my opinion. The couches, though comfortable, were worn and the house is full of mermaid decor, which isn't my thing, but hey! It fits in with the theme of the island.
We'd definitely stay again.
We were thrilled that you had a cancellation that made this cottage available to us during the high season! Kristi B. in the previous review could have been writing for us. We also had a 3 year with us who loved the beach. He was so excited to go down and watch the sunset everynight! So close to the water! Plenty of parking. Nice well stocked kitchen, laundry area with beach chairs and sand toys, and screened in porch with room to eat outside. We didn't get a chance to use the BBQ grill, but it was nice to see. The trolley stop was just around the corner. Shops were within easy walking distance. Of course, we fished from and ate one dinner on the Rod & Reel Pier! Wish we could have left our deposit for a return visit next year, but our schedule is not that certain. Suffice it to say, we were very happy with this rental.
We were lucky to find this house open during high season! It fit our needs perfectly! It had everything you would need to make meal and kitchen pantry for lots of groceries. We really enjoyed the quaint setting on a quiet street and it's close proximity to the beach! It was an easy walk (even with a 3 year old)!! The screened porch was an added bonus. We are already looking forward to next year!

It will be an experience the entire family will enjoy. See you on Island-Time soon!
