About the Property

Cottage- 2 Bedroom/1 Bath. Sleeps 6 max, PET FRIENDLY, SO CLOSE TO THE WATER

UPDATED IN 2015, NEW POOL IN 2014'!! Old Florida with sparkling clean modern twist. Heated pool... Only 95 short steps to the Gulf of Mexico! Wow, what a location. Enjoy the pristine white sand beaches so famous on Bradenton Beach. Catch the sea breeze even on hot summer days. Watch the sunsets from your front yard or sun rise on the Inter Coastal Waterway off Tampa Bay. Take a chair and a beach towel and spend the day gathering shells, soaking up the sun and catching up on some well-deserved rest.

Unit is ground level and open onto a private, fenced, heated swimming pool. Area great for entertaining and corporate retreats. NOT A PARTY HOUSE! cozy pool deck is ideal for relaxation. Peaceful and private for retreats.

Within walking distance to a variety of island restaurants. Free Island trolley comes to the corner and takes you from one end of the island to the other. Visit all the beaches, fishing docks, entertainment, beachfront restaurants and bars, boardwalk, shopping and so much more. Come for a week and stay for a lifetime.

* Easy day trip Orlando, Disney World, The Space Coast, Busch Gardens or St Armands Circle in Sarasota
* Anna Marie Island is Florida's Best Kept Secret!!!
* Not the Ritz & Glitz of Ft Lauderdale/, clean
island ideal for that relaxing family vacations.
*Owner operated businesses abound!
