This is a lovely house, perfect for a family of 4 to 6 people. 300 meter to the beach. Cozy garden and pool. Everything one needs is available.

Our family had such a wonderful time at your lovely beach home. The house was perfect for our needs and the short walk to the beach suited my 71 year old father and my husband’s 84 year old grandmother. There were so many amenities that were such a fantastic surprise! We loved having our own pool for evening dips while we grilled our dinner. I truly cannot say enough good things about this property so I will just leave it as we will be back very soon. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to share your home.

Great, private and quiet location. The house is equipped with all you and your family need. The short distance to the beach made us walk to the beach more than once a day. Any request to the rental company was answered within hours. Great service overall!

This was a perfect little home. We had everything we needed. The pool was great. Great location to the beach and shops. Everyone had space and wasn’t on top of each other. The price was great! We love Anna Maria and this house may be a repeat visit for us!

We stayed at Coastal Cottage at the end of March 2014. Although we have stayed at other lovely places on Anna Maria, we just loved the privacy and the beautiful decor of this home. It had plenty of room (and more!) for the 4 of us. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The pool was gorgeous and the landscaping around the pool made the yard seem very secluded. What we loved the best was the location of Coastal Cottage–just a block from the beach and only a block to the cute shops and restaurants on Pine. We couldn’t have asked for anything more! It’s going to be hard to follow in Coastal Cottages’ footsteps the next time we stay somewhere on Anna Maria–it was perfect!!

The home we rented was clean, in good shape, and as advertised. I do appreciate not having any surprises when we arrive somewhere. The kitchen was well appointed and stocked with all the cookware and dishware we needed. The pool was great. We rarely visit the same location twice…so many places to see. But if we did we would book there again.

We had SO much fun in our neat little beach house for this week. We had a very adventurous stay full of fish stories, turtle hatchlings and trips to the ice cream store :). The beaches are beautiful, even though we set a goal to find shark teeth this week. We didn’t find any, but we found plenty of shells! Sunsets, cold drinks, family games—what an awesome week! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to have all of our family underneath one roof for a full week of fun, sand, and drinks in hand!
Guest Book entry by the McCarn, Duncklee and Harlaus families for their stay in 8/2012
We loved our week here at 215 Palm. We stayed here last summer and we were so gold to be able to book a last minute vacation here again. The home was just as we remembered it, so comfortable and charming. The tropical landscaping in the backyard is so pretty and the pool is always refreshing after a day at the beach or biking around the island. We love the convenience of being so close to the beach and great restaurants and my son loves finishing the day off at Dips or Two Scoops. The weather was great and the week flew by much too quickly. Can’t wait till we can come back!

We had a wonderful time on the island! The house was great! It was nice having a pool. My whole family enjoyed it.
Guest Book entry by the Stansell family of Birmingham, Alabama, for their stay in 6/2012
We LOVE this cottage! We were here during Tropical Storm Debbie—and remained safe and dry inside. The water filled the street and started up the driveway before it stopped about half way!! The pool was such a blessing this week—Monday was sunny and warm but way too windy (not to mention the wild surf!) to enjoy the beach, so we stayed at the pool ALL day. Our four kids loved it! I appreciate all of the nice touches in the cottage—you thought of everything! We loved the location and by Wednesday we were able to enjoy everything that the island offers! This is our second visit to AMI—we will definitely be back and hope to stay here again—hopefully for two weeks. One is never enough!
Guest Book entry by the McDevitt family of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for their stay in 6/2012
This cottage was the perfect fit for our family of four! Our boys loved the pool also with being able to bike all around the North End. The beach was beautiful with calm waters perfect for snorkeling. We enjoyed being about to walk or bike to restaurants. Waterfront restaurant was one of our favorites. Starfish Company in Cortez had great seafood—very casual—get there between 5-5:30 to get a seat! This was our first time in AMI but we loved it and plan to visit again!
Guest Book entry by the Driggers family from Woodstock, Georgia, for their stay in 6/2012
What a treat! Such a cute house and perfect for our family with 2 almost grown kids. We went to the beach, the pier and out to eat. We also cooked a lot and used the pool—it’s fabulous at night. The kids had a blast parasailing with YOLO and going on a sunset boat trip to the sand bar with Capt. Katie. Love this cottage and AMI. We’ll be back!

This is our third visit—this time for multiple weeks. Living on the Canadian border (Ft. Drum, New York area) we NEVER tire of escaping to the sunny skies here. This cottage is so clean, so centrally located to the places we enjoy on the island. I love all your tropical bed linens. Thanks!

We had so much fun! We loved the pool and on our last day we went shark hunting! Thank you so much!
Guest Book entry by the Seaman family from Knoxville, Tennessee, for their stay in 3/2012
Although we got here very last minute, the stay was very enjoyable! The house, the pool wildlife, and people here were fantastic. We shared the house with another family too, so it was quite tight fitted. But we managed just fine! We come down here to AMI every year and we’ve been coming for six years. :) We really hope to come back to this cottage soon!

We had a wonderful week in Anna Maria! The cottage was in a perfect location. We rented bikes for the week and biked or walked to everything. What a great way to relax! The beach is gorgeous and even when the weather was chilly we sat on the beach and enjoyed the sunsets. Very sad to be heading back to the wild north, but will definitely be back to this cute cottage.
Guest Book entry by Joan and Bruce Herman from Chicago, Illinois, for their stay in 2/2012
What a sweet place to stay—comfy, convenient, cozy, and colorful! Loved the location, the pool, the kitchen, the location, the cranes and egrets, the work station, and did I mention the perfect location? This has been a wonderful stay and we hope to make a return visit someday.
Guest Book entry by the Shuster family from Lakewood, Ohio, for their stay in 2/2012
The cottage and Anna Maria Island also lived up to our expectations—both beautiful and charming—we’re in love with the island and will definitely plan to come back. This cottage has wonderful accommodations and the furnishings are so ‘beachy’—absolutely adorable! The pool is an added bonus—the patio and landscaping are lovely. The weather has also been close to perfect—in the high 70s when we arrived—midweek we got a small about of rain and some clouds but it cleared up the next day and is supposed to be sunny the rest of our time here—cooler but still only about 5 degrees below average. Again can’t say enough good things about our time here. We also liked the location of the cottage.
Guest Book entry by the Kay family from Versailles, Kentucky, for their stay in 12/2011
The cottage and Anna Maria Island lived up to our expectations we have had a great holiday! Everyone has been so friendly. Our stay started with a bit of a surprise as we locked ourselves out in the garden—the lock is a bit quirky and not what us Brits are use to! The agent Chrissie came to our rescue and we were careful not to let it happen again! Feel very sorry for the cat who seemed very friendly but obviously needs to see a veterinarian as he spends his whole time scratching!

Awesome! We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you for all the little details that make this place perfect.

We SOOO enjoyed our stay here! The cottage inside and out is attractive clean and comfortable. We appreciated the thoughtful touches regarding provisions and décor. Please feed the cat!

This cottage is paradise within paradise! What a wonderful place Anna Maria Island is. Deb the Cairns-in-need sure are lucky with you in the world. Please feed the cat and fresh water daily—to the next guests—he or she is alive.

We are crying as we’re leaving this morning. The cottage was fabulous and we very much enjoyed the pool. Our week here was awesome. We have too much fun. (I don’t care about the cat.)

Love, love, love this place. The house is perfect, beach is beautiful, and the relaxation was great. Thanks so much and hopefully we will be able to come back. We also loved the resident cat!

We are from Stuttgart, Germany. When we saw the Coastal Cottage, 215 Palm Ave. on the internet we knows, that is our house. As we arrived—that house looks at the pictures- it is great and we was so happy. We enjoyed the “short” time and relaxed. AMI is so lovely and we also will come back! AMI wir warden dich ver missen.

Guest Book entry by the Ellis family from Dayton, Ohio, for their stay in 7/2011
We have had such a wonderful week here at Coastal Cottage. The house had everything we need and more! The backyard patio and garden were so pretty and relaxing, and the kids loved swimming in the pool morning, afternoon, and night! We couldn’t have found a better home so close to the beach, restaurants, and other fun places within easy biking distance. Thanks for opening your home so that others could experience the “Old Florida” feel. We will definitely be back!

We came for a wedding and had an amazing time! The island was so friendly, awesome beaches, and this house could not have been more perfect. The pool was our favorite!
Guest Book entry by Steph and Ken from Washington, DC, for their stay in 6/2011
We are nearing the end of a two week stay at the cottage. This is our second visit and we are booked to come back next year! We love the perfect pool and backyard garden, the easy walking distance to so many things, and cleanliness of the house and the pretty décor and linens. A wonderful escape from the snow and rains that are going on back home.
Guest Book entry by Steven and Susan Guy from Watertown, New York, for their stay in 4/2011
I had a great/wonderful/awesome holiday here in Anna Maria Island! I love all the palm trees, beaches and the warm weather! And the ice cream was really good too! And our house was very cute and the perfect place to stay here. (close to the beach). I hope I can come here again. Thank you! P.S.—the Americans with this Finnish exchange student had a great week as well. Go to “The Sign of the Mermaid” for dinner!

This vacation was a surprise for me—a trip to warmer climate for me to recover from chemo. When it was time to pack my husband showed me your website. From that point on, I couldn’t wait to be here. The bright, cheery happy colors are wonderful! The mood that they evoke is perfect. The weather was never too hot, nor too cold. We love this cottage and I hope to come back again.

We have had a wonderful week at Anna Maria and really hate to leave! Your home was comfortable, clean, well-equipped with both the essentials as well as many extras that added to the fun! We had gorgeous weather and spent most mornings riding bikes around the island and exploring—what an interesting place! The people we met were friendly and the views are amazing! We enjoyed a few beautiful days at the beach, just a short walk away. The beach chairs, cooler and cart were very helpful. The kids (and adults) also loved the pool, beach toys, and the patio furniture was great for some quiet time reading and listening to the birds or star gazing on clear nights. Hopefully we can return someday—this was a memorable vacation for us all and we feel fortunate we found your home to spend our time.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! What can I say! This was the most wonderful visit. I just love all that you have done to this cottage—to make it so comfy and attractive. I knew immediately it was all through your good taste.
