Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much for sharing this cozy and charming beach cottage. You have thought of everything and then some to make our stay extra comfy and enjoyable. The pool area is fabulous. We did a ton of fishing at both piers and the kids love riding the bikes there. We'll return.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week on Anna Maria Island! Rest Ashore was the perfect place, in the perfect location, for an amazing family vacation! The house is located in such a great spot on the island! In one direction, in just a short walk, is Bean Point. A wonderful beach that is hardly ever crowded. (and has very little parking.) In the other direction is the wonderful Pine Ave. And all its lovely shops and boutiques, as well as restaurants, donuts etc. On the windy days, the beautiful (and heated) pool and backyard provided us with the perfect escape! The house was well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. There was a very nice gas grill that was excellent for quick and easy meals at home! Bikes and beach umbrellas in the garage! The absolute perfect house for a wonderful family vacation! To the owners, Thank you very much for allowing us to rent your amazing house in paradise!

Private, great location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a week at Rest Ashore. What an amazing location! Only about 3 blocks walk up to the dunes and white sands of Bean Point , and just around the corner from the Rod and Reel Pier. The fenced back yard and pool area is very cozy and private. Bikes, beach chairs/umbrellas, and pool toys are provided. There is a washer and dryer in the garage. Each day we started with a bike ride up to Pine Street for morning coffee, then a beach walk. We grilled burgers or seafood most nights.

This house is best for one couple or a small family--there is only one bath, and it is small.

Pros: Location. Privacy. Quiet. Clean. Gets great light.

Cons: Some minor TLC is needed; aging furniture, bathroom grout, etc.

We'd book again, but are getting a larger place next year so we can bring extended family.

We already miss the little blue house....

My two daughters and I stayed in this amazing little place for a week July 2014. Loved every minute of our stay. Rode bikes, walked on the beach, played in the water and swam in the pool. Lots of local places to eat very close. Very cozy and comfy! Will definitely be back next year for a girls get away!

Truly a slice of paradise. This place is perfect and so is the location. The house is impeccable and tastefully decorated. Cozy, private backyard. Quiet neighborhood. Short walk to bay side or bean point (not to be missed). Excellent owners. AMI is an amazing little area. Soon after leaving depression will set won't taste the're dog will whine'll start wearing bathings suits to'll cover you're family room floor with sand and stare a pictures of the ocean on tv.....the only cure is to return next year!
