Why Betty chose Anna Maria Island

I first came to Anna Maria to Visit my good friend and was always sad to leave, so one time i didn't. Best thing I ever did. My entire family Loves this place. My Children and grand children call it our Island. Many special times have been here. My Son Just recently Married on the Beach just across the street. Our Back yard and courtyard hosted a reception of about 80 friends and family beautifully.

What makes this cottage unique

This Is a Beautiful Old Florida Cottage style Home. Ground floor, Easy to live in, No stairs to climb. Of course it is all modernized now but we saved its charm. Just step out the door to a beautiful courtyard with lots of flowers. Spacious seating and dining areas with A gas grill. Just relax for your morning coffee or the end of the day relaxing under the stars..

Had a faboulous time at Bella by the sea! Betty greeted us on arrival and oh so sweet! 2 bedroom was perfect for the 4 of us ...and needs were met!! Since we flew in were concerned about extras!! From beach towels to washer/dryer access...we actually had MORE features in this eclectic property than in some resorts! Thank you Betty for sharing your property as it is a gem of a place to stay!!!

We will be back with the grandbabies!!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

Had an awesome stay at this property with our family of 5! We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit of this property which had a very comfy king size bed in the master bedroom and a queen size murphy bed in the 2nd bedroom (we brought our twin air mattress along for the 3rd kid and put that in the living room). The unit was VERY CLEAN and well stocked including beach towels for our use which was nice not to have to haul along. It was also super nice to have a washer and dryer available. We went to the beach every day as it was super close to walk to and the weather and gulf were perfect! The location is great for walking and enjoying all AMI has to offer. Betty was very welcoming and accommodating to any needs. We would recommend this property and hope to stay again sometime. Thanks for a good stay!

Please note: there is only one parking spot available for the unit and parking is not allowed on the street, so plan accordingly.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Great location just steps from the beach. Betty was very helpful. I would really only recommend for 2 people rather than 4 as the room with the murphey bed is quite small and right near the front door. Overall great option.

Bella by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the month of March and we loved the location. Walk right across the street to the beach and restaurants. The house is very comfortable and the backyard is great. The owner was friendly and helpful. I would stay there again

Nice but misleading

  • 3 of 5

The way the description read, I believed we were getting a three bedroom house that slept 6. This house is a one bedroom with a Murphy bed. It is decorated cute and is located right across the street from the beach. I would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: I am sorry these guest did not understand the description, They had stated they were 2 adults and no children and arrived with 4 adults and 2 children. My very nice 2 bedroom which they had reserved clearly states maximum guest is 4. I hospitalized when they arrived and my son handled the check in and was not aware of the number of guest It was reserved for. Had I not been hospitalized I would not have allowed them to stay with ^ people. Thanks, Betty
