Marmalade Mermaid is only three houses from Tampa Bay where you can put in your paddleboards or kayaks easily. This home is near Leffis Key so you can paddle many mangrove lines and see loads of wildlife.

Marmalade Mermaid by Duncan Real Estate

Awesome beach cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Great week at the beach. We loved the cottage - only complaint would be that the A/C in the main part never cooled the bedrooms. The 3rd bedroom had a separate system and was a great temperature. Would definitely rent again !

Cutest place ever

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely adorable! Super close to the beach and within walking distance to the pier. Also can easily walk to Coquina Beach. Very clean and it had all the stuff you needed. Tons of beach gear, including a small cooler, floaties, Frisbees, football, and chairs. Easy check in. They texted you the door code and we could easily get in and lock it up. The pictures don't do this place justice. The décor is beyond amazing and tastefully done. The only thing I would recommend is that the 2nd bedroom would be better with a queen bed so another couple could use that room (full is too small). Otherwise one couple gets stuck sleeping with the kids. The room with the twin beds is enormous and the king bed in there is awesome. The kitchen is stocked and even had some food in the cupboards. The bathrooms are very nice as well. Can't wait to go back. Would highly recommend this place.

You will be so pleased with this property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed at this property over Christmas. It was absolutely perfect for us! 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms gave us plenty of space. Home is clean and charming. It was our first of hopefully many visits to Anna Maria Island and we would happily stay at this property again. The house is just across the street from a beautiful white sand beach with clear water. Home is nicely equipped with everything you need. Duncan Real Estate is a pleasure to work with and made everything easy from start to finish.

Charming beach home

  • 5 of 5

A weekend getaway for our 15th anniversary. the shabby chic decorations give this home so much charm. I Was worried about the bathrooms because they were not pictured but the bathrooms are just as nice as the rest of the home. We really enjoyed sitting on the porch swing in the evening . The home is equipped with everything needed for the stay down to beach towels. I know we will be back again.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this charming home and can't wait to vacation there again! A lot of love went into the decorating and updating of this property and it was perfectly suited for our family. There are three bedrooms each with their own bathrooms. Each bedroom, as well as the living room, had a television. The furniture and beds were very comfortable, and the linens were soft. The linens as well as towels were provided, along with three beach chairs and beach umbrella. The home and all the linens were very clean. The beach was across the street and yes there is construction at the present time, however it wasn't that bad. We were able to sit on that beach across the street on the weekend, without being crowded. During the week we just had to walk a short block to access the beach. The wrap around porch is great. Being one house away from the main boulevard had us close enough to the beach, yet it was quiet.

Carmen with Duncan Real Estate was wonderful to work with. Carmen was friendly, informative, and responded quickly.

There are a multitude of cultural arts events, museums and festivals that abound on and around Anna Maria Island. the surrounding areas enjoy more than its share of outdoor recreational opportunities. White sandy beaches, sparkling blue water, boating, fishing, golf, big league sports and more ensure that Anna Maria Island and Manatee County’s visitors and residents enjoy year-round entertainment.

Because Anna Maria Island is surrounded by water and Manatee County is threaded by various waterways, boating and fishing are some of its most popular activities. There many marinas and boat ramps available to serve this thriving pastime, making it easy for anglers and boaters to access the Gulf of Mexico, not to mention the region’s bays, rivers and bayous.

The gulf coast and inland waterways provide fertile fishing grounds for such tasty favorites as pompano, flounder, redfish and trout. The Gulf of Mexico yields larger catches, including grouper, tarpon, mackerel and kingfish. For those who prefer to fish from more solid ground, Anna Maria Island offers a host of public fishing piers, including the Anna Maria City Pier at Pine Avenue and the Rod n’ Reel Pier on Bay Boulevard in Anna Maria. Fishermen of every skill level can also take advantage of the Manatee Beach Fishing Pier located on Gulf Drive in Holmes Beach and the Bradenton Beach Fishing Pier at Bridge Street. And the county is also proud to claim the world’s longest fishing pier, extending more than mile and a half out from one side of the old Skyway Bridge!
