Why Jill Kennedy, Manager chose Anna Maria Island

We fell in love with this place due to it's location, it's potential, it's charm and it's amenities. All things considered, it is still the best value on the island!

What makes this cottage unique

UPDATED IN LATE 2015... The is just Beach-95 steps, 1 house away. Heated Pool, Small dog friendly, grill, owner managed, Cottage style, not a condo, Old Florida at it's best! Feels like 'home away from home"!

Wonderful trip despite the rain

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our son and daughter in law and two grandchildren for a trip to the beach. This was our first experience with something other than staying in a hotel. My wife fell in love with the cottage when we walked thru the door. It was exactly as it was described.

The beach was wonderful and so convenient. It was not real crowded. We did have to contend with the rain twice a day each day but worked our beach time around the rain.

The pool was nice and relaxing and loved it being right outside our back door. The kids had a blast.

Our thanks to Jill for having such a wonderful place and we WILL BE BACK.

We had a great time and Jill was so wonderful. We're looking to hopefully go back again- once we can get our schedules organized again. Close to lots of restaurants and things to do. Beach is beautiful!

Couldn't have stayed at a better place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband and our 4 children. We could not have picked a better place! First, the cottage was super clean and very nicely decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable! We loved having the pool right outside our bedroom door. The children really enjoyed swimming at night. The cottage was in the perfect location...steps from the beach and right next to a trolley stop. I cannot begin to tell you how nice it was to have the trolley stop right there when traveling with 4 kids! When my 9 year old daughter is asked what her favorite part of our vacation was, she says "our beach house." Jill, the owner, was fabulous to work with and we will definitely rent from her again. It was a great experience!
