We had many very happy family vacations on Anna Maria Island before deciding to purchase this delightful cottage. Once we saw the pool and landscaping area it was an easy decission. We work in the property and fashion industry and have been married for over 30 years. Our twins are big AMI fans too of course and we live in Northern Ireland.
Rob purchased this Cottage in 2008

Excellent vacation rental
Absolutely loved your cottage on Anna Maria Island. Comfortable, clean and updated. The pool area is like it's own oasis. We spent every afternoon in the pool. The pool is well maintained and the pool area was clean. Rob's review of the island's restaurants was spot on. That in itself saved us a lot of time and energy looking for the right place to dine. The fact that St Armand's Circle is only 17 easy miles away thrilled my wife. The free trolley around the island is a definite plus. If the cottage were available more we would vacation on Anna Maria Island more. Thanks Rob.

Lovely, well equiped cottage in a fantastic location on beautiful Anna Maria Island. Pool was amazing and great to have the use of bikes too.
Wonderful Home from Home Cottage
This is truly an amazing holiday cottage-5 minutes from the beach, gives you a great opportunity for ogling all the other properties around.
Bedrooms - Main bedroom has a fantastic superkingsize bed which is REALLY comfortable, loads of wardrobe and cupboard space so no need to ram your things into one tiny drawer. TV available and the cupboard stores a key lockable safe, iron/ironing board, washing basket & extra bedding if required.
Twin Bedroom again has loads of hanging space and cupboard space with really comfortable beds along with a wall mounted TV. Cupboard houses a clothes dryer.
Large bathroom - lots of cupboard space again housing bath and hand towels for the cottage along with beach towels, The large shower is a step in shower over a small step. 2nd bathroom is a shower above the bath, with sink/toilet and cupboard.
In the hall you are provided with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Living Room - Comfortable homely furniture with large cable TV, lots of extra books, DVDs, and games available for your leisure along with information on the local area so no need to go hunting for local touristy things.
Kitchen/diner - This is truly a well stocked kitchen from the American fridge with ice/water dispenser which was invaluable, to every implement that you could possibly need if you feel the need to cook. You are also provided with ice boxes and drinks containers for the beach. The oven and microwave and are easy to use and there is also a dishwasher available. The only downside is i'm a typical Brit and drink lots of tea, so would've appreciated a kettle, however it's quite easy to use the Coffee maker, just don't put in coffee filters, and this allows you to heat the water.
Shed - incl 2 x bikes, 4 x beach chairs, beach umbrella along with a beach trolley which makes it really easy to transport everything you need to the beach.
The garden has 4 x loungers with padded seats, 2 seats and outside table and 4 chairs for outside dining. The previous occupants had left behind a lilo and noodles for our pleasure.
Wifi is provided throughout the cottage and even covers the garden/swimming pool deck. The only downside to this cottage was the mosquitoes, but unfortunately nothing that can be done with that.
Overall a fantastic cottage which catered to our every whim. Will definitely stay here again! Thanks Rob & Avril for letting us have the use of your lovely cottage x
Nice little cottage! Perfect for a couple.
We throughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage and hope to extend our stay next year.
Thanks for the review. Glad you really enjoyed your stay.
Awesome cozy cottage!
We couldn’t have been happier with this cottage. The amenities were as advertised. The heated pool had shade and sun and the kitchen had very nice upgrades. We don’t have a lot of money to spend on eating out, so the nice kitchen and outdoor grill were icing on the cake. We would definitely stay here again!
