Great location, house needs some updating.

  • 4 of 5

Location was Great. Away from major tourist activities, but a short ride on the trolly. The house really could use updating, but it was fine for our stay. The air conditioner vents are in the ceiling and drip condensation, the washer and dryer are older but work fine. The flooring is separating from the toung and grove attachment, and the layout is very odd. All and all everything worked fine, but if you are looking for a modernized house, I would say this house is still stuck in the 90's. We did enjoy the screened in front porch, and the kids loved the Jacuzzi tub. It was also great having the trolly stop on the same block.

A Relaxing Vacation With Family

  • 5 of 5

Laying on the beautiful white sandy beach all day, while dragging my feet back and forth in water as blue and clear as the sky, is exactly what I had in mind when renting this charming cottage for the week. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the Gulfshore Cottage, a quaint, nostalgic property that is well maintained and extremely clean. It's within walking distance to excellent restaurants and shops and has quick and easy access to the beach. Beautiful, breezy walks at night and crisp morning sunrises greet you each day from the delightful front porch. We enjoyed our evenings sitting outside after a long day while grilling our dinner or simply having drinks. The perfect spot to relax and unwind. If you get a chance to spend a week at the Gulfshore Cottage I highly recommend that you do. You won't regret it!

Best rental on Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of eight found our stay at the Gulfshore cottage was one of the best experience we had during our weekend vacation in December. The cottage was clean and had all the necessary amenities for all the adults and children in our group. It is a few steps from the beautiful quite beach, walking distance to the quaint shops and restaurants in downtown Anna Maria. The free trolley provided a great way to get around Anna Maria island.

We will definitely be back soon.

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION ! This rental was one of our best on AMI- The

house is fully equipped with all the comforts of home- no need to bring

anything except your luggage! The layout was spacious and airy - very

comfortable bedrooms with plenty of room for adults and kids.

We had all the beach necessities provided with lovely beach towels and

umbrellas.

The 2 minute walk to the beach was one of the best features leaving us

plenty of time to enjoy the town.

The large screened patio is a bonus for people watching.

We will definitely be returning hopefully sooner than later - Thank you for

a great vacation .

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend the house - it is centrally located on Anna Maria island within walking distance to shopping and dining. The house is impeccably clean and well-maintained. It's a very spacious home with all the amenities we needed. The air conditioning worked well, as did all of the other appliances. But best of all, this home is one block away from the best beach in the states! We will definitely stay here again!

Comfortable island cottage close to gorgeous beach

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a wonderful stay at Gulfshore Cottage. Furnished with soft beach colors of sea greens, blues and cream, the property is clean, spacious, welcoming and located a short (less than five minutes) walk to the gorgeous white sand beach and glorious Gulf water. The bedrooms are large with very comfortable beds, extra bedding and plenty of storage. The two bathrooms are also large, each with powerful showers and one also has a huge spa bathtub. They are well-stocked with soft towels. There are plenty of thoughtful touches- coffee filters, condiments, tea bags, toiletries, beach towels, beach chairs, and coolers. The washer and dryer were a bonus. The cottage has a well-equipped kitchen: large oven, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, blender and everything you need to cook. Restaurants are a short walk or trolley ride and there is a Publix grocery store about 2 miles away. It took us 7 minutes to stroll along the beach for Sunday brunch on the beach at the Sandbar. We spent evenings out on the long porch at the front of the cottage and enjoyed morning coffee out there, watching the island come alive with joggers and cyclists in the mornings. We loved our time at Gulfshore Cottage and we cannot wait to stay here again.Just got back from a wonderful stay at Gulfshore Cottage.

This family friendly 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!
