2 bed/2 bath Single Family POOL Home, steps to the beach


Stand alone, single family, ground level home has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with PRIVATE POOL and "cool to the feet", Travertine tile patio surround. Large open floor plan allows for everyone to be in the same room and enjoy your time at the beach. Sun-room allows for some private time or can double as additional sleeping space with a full-size fold out sofa for extra guests. The newly polished terrazzo floors mean you don't have to worry about dirt on the carpet!

The home is fully stocked with all dishes, cooking utensils, linens, beach chairs, beach toys and outside B-B-Q grill. Just a short walk down 66th Street to the sugar, white sand beaches of Anna Maria Island.

About Susan

I'm a "Snowbird" from Atlanta GA and when I'm out of town, my place is yours! Daughter lives on the island, so I have family right down the street! I love my little pink house...and I love this island!

Susan purchased this house in 2014

Why Susan chose Anna Maria Island

Small enough to manage the chores, but big enough for family and friends. Light and bright spaces and NO BUSY STREETS TO CROSS to get to the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico.

What makes this house unique

Travertine patio surrounds my pool, which means no hot pavers under your feet when you are getting in or out of the pool! Private tropical backyard surrounds the pool...bananas fresh of the trees!

Great Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Tickled Pink Cottage for Feb. and Mar. of both 2016 and 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Susan has been wonderful to work with has provided the rental with everything you need to sit on the beach or relax around the pool. The cottage looks exactly like the pictures on the web site and is well equipped in the kitchen. The location is convenient of bike riding on quiet streets and a short walk to the beach. Anna Maria Island is a charming vacation spot and this rental makes it perfect.

Lovely property so close to beach

  • 4 of 5

Really nicely done out inside, spacious and well appointed with pretty much everything you needed. A bit close to the main road, and the pool wasn't heated so was a bit cool for easter, but the property itself was just what we wanted. Thank you.

nice home with a lot of space

  • 4 of 5

The home is well decorated and the interieur is according to the descripton. Everything was clean and well maintained. Nice terrasse with pool, but the traffic is noticable. We enjoyed the stay.

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed our home. We strive to make it perfect, the benefit of renting from the owner instead of a management company! Unfortunately, the traffic noise is bad all over the island as more people discover our little piece of paradise and Florida continues to promote tourism to our island. Thankfully concrete homes do a good job to insulate from outside noise!

Great Location!! Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in a perfect location. Close to the beach and trolley. We didn't even need to contact the owner as everything we needed was already provided in the cottage. We bought a few things at Publix (close by) for breakfast and snacks. Walked or used the trolley and even the monkey bus to get around. The pool was the best part, clean and perfect temperature. It was a great anniversary for my wife and I. We even had a eagle nesting across the street on the church keeping a eye on us. Thanks Susan!

Great Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Tickeled Pink Cottage. Susan was great with making sure we had everything we needed to settle in with. It was a great location and only a 5 minute walk to the beach. We loved relaxing by the pool just as much as going to the beach. We can't wait to get back next year.

What a wonderful find!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this cottage! We planned a last minute visit and Susan was wonderful & accomodating to our needs. This home is centrally located and an easy commute to the shops and Publix. The trolly is just across the main road and a quick ride to the North End for a bite at Ginny N Jane E's. The cottage is tastefully decorated, with touches of raspberry everywhere and the biggest surprise was how clean it was--the terrazzo floors are beautiful! Can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was. The beach, just down the end of this street, was easy to get to with the wagon provided and NO busy streets to cross. All I can say is, "It couldn't have been any better!" Thanks again, we'll be back!
