About Coastal Cottages AMI

I had been coming to Anna Maria Island for years, when my parents, who were from northern Michigan, first started spending their winters here. I have now called AMI home for over 20 years! I own An Island Place Realty and Coastal Cottages AMI, which handles vacation rentals.

Why Coastal Cottages AMI chose Anna Maria Island

On one of my visits to see my parents years ago, I ended up buying this house that was only steps away from the one they used to rent.

What makes this cottage unique

Island Place Cottage has a larger 2-BR cottage behind it. You can rent both rentals to accommodate larger parties! When booking ask about Pineapple Cottage!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to Anna Maria Island. Didn't know where to stay. Found Island Place Cottage. Love it! It was clean. Walking distance to everything. Only an hour away from Tampa airport. Very convenient app to follow with great information once you booked the place. They also made it very easy to get in once you got there since we didn't arrive till late that night. Highly recommend this cottage. Loved the Sand Bar Restaurant. it was walking distance and great food and you could watch the sunset there. Ate breakfast at the Sign of the mermaid restaurant. Excellent place for breakfast.

Cozy, Quiet, Romantic...a perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great little place. It has everything you need. The pictures don't do it justice. My husband and I had a magnificent time on the Island and we had the perfect place to come back to after the beach, fishing, bike riding...etc. It's a short walk to the beach and conveniently located. The General Store, cute shops, and the Sandbar restaurant are all nearby. We visited on a busy weekend, but it seems like the North end is a little quieter. We loved every thing about this place.

Sue, An Island Place C...

  • 5 of 5


An Island Place Cottage was really great. We had so much fun walking up to the beach, eating grouper sandwiches at the Sandbar and Waterfront Restaurants, riding the trolley, renting the double surrey (wow - what a workout!! :) )and enjoying breathtaking views at sunset on the white powdery beaches. We are already making plans to come back next year and stay for a week. Thanks again for all of your hospitality during our short stay.

On a scale of 1-10 the Cottage is an amazing 20+!

Absolutely perfect! From cleanliness to amenities,

from location to expectations surpassed in every

way, this place is like entering a bygone era of

profoundly relaxing simple pleasures. The free

trolley is great. Loved being able to walk to the

beach, great restaurants, shopping, the post office,

general store, in short - everything you need.

This place, . . . another time.

This time, . . . no other place!

Hoping the secret of Anna Maria Island will remain

well kept. We'll definitely be back!

This family, elderly and petfriendly vacation rental is located on Florida's Anna Maria Island, a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico south of Tampa Bay. Comprised of three cities—Anna Maria on the north end, Holmes Beach in the middle and Bradenton Beach to the south—AMI is one of the only places where the 'old Florida' charm still exists. The Island has every convenience needed, including multiple award winning restaurants, including Beach Bistro, Sandbar Restaurant, Sign of the Mermaid, and Waterfront Restaurant. There is also plenty of shopping available along historic Pine Avenue in Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach's historic Bridge Street. With the beach and the Bay just minutes away from your front door, there is plenty to do in the water. Kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, jet skiing, and parasailing are the more popular activities. With the Island only seven miles long, there is no need to drive when almost everything is within walking or biking distance. Plus, there is a free trolley service that runs the length of the Island every day. AMI truly has something for everyone, and everyone who visits falls in love with it. We are sure you will too! So, reserve your vacation home today . . . seven miles of pristine white beaches and beautiful sunsets await you!
