About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Peppertree Cottage is a fantastic beachside getaway for two couples or a small family looking for tropical privacy in a beach side location. Hidden away at the end of a quiet, dead end residential street, the cottage is beautifully appointed and has all new kitchen and laundry appliances. A sparkling, private in-ground pool was just installed in the Fall of 2012 and is for the exclusive use of the guests of the cottage.

The Gulf of Mexico beach access is only a couple houses away. There are no roads to cross in order to enjoy some of the most pristine beaches and glorious sunsets found on the west coast of Florida.

This beach cottage is bright, colorful and airy with a single level open floor plan, lots of windows and comfortable furnishings. Sit out back at poolside on the patio and enjoy your morning coffee in lush privacy. Enjoy the sunsets at the beach and be home in moments.

There is a detached Studio Apartment next door to the cottage on the property (same owners) if you have a larger group and are in need of an extra private king bed with bath and kitchenette. Ask about rate reductions when renting together. Peppertree Studio is VRBO listing #392237. Use of the pool is for the exclusive use of Cottage guests.

During the summer months loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs on these beaches and you will likely see dolphins and/or manatees. The city of Anna Maria has no fast food restaurants, no traffic lights and no high rises. It’s Old Florida at its best, when things were tranquil and living was easy. Whether your goal is to finish that good book you’ve been reading, stroll some quaint island shops or gather your collection of seashells, it’s easily accomplished here.

Nature lovers will be amazed at the natural habitat of Anna Maria. Whether you’re a bird watcher, shell collector, fishing enthusiast, or master gardener, you’ll find what you’re looking for here. Our sugar sand beaches are strewn with seashells and are well populated by shore birds, sea turtles and dolphins. Take a minute and picture yourself napping on a beach towel on the warm sand by the Gulf of Mexico, all to the gentle sound of the surf. We look forward to your stay.

About The Owner

My husband, Roger and I (Katy) have lived in Bradenton for 28 years. Our children have grown up spending a lot of time on this island and loving it. Watching dolphins, manatees and pelicans quickly became our favorite pastime.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Anna Maria

We bought our first beach house in 2000. As time went on, and with the addition of our grandchildren, we outgrew it and were fortunate to find The Peppertree Cottage and Studio. The quiet street and gulf beach access, one house away, sold us. With the house being on ground level it’s also more comfortable. Now comes the next generation’s opportunity to fall in love with this incredible island.

What makes this house unique

Every time we arrive on Anna Maria it’s like entering a different world. The charming island atmosphere completely relaxes you. Everyone who visits has a hard time leaving and immediately makes plans to return. The free trolley is a real plus and allows visitors to see the entire island with someone else at the wheel.

We loved staying here! Such a comfortable, well decorated and welcoming environment. Plenty of kitchen utensils that allow you to easily cook if you desire. We especially appreciated the closeness of the beach and the private pool. We will definitely be back!!

Beautiful Beach Cottage - perfect with children

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two children stayed here May of 2016 for one week and we loved it! It was our little piece of paradise. Very quiet street and a short walk to the beach. The cottage had everything - it was like staying at a home away from home. My daughter broke one of the pieces of pottery, and the owner was extremely gracious. My in laws came down for part of the week and they stayed in the studio property owned by the same person right next door. It was perfect, gave everyone their own space. The pool, yard and cottage were all very well maintained. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Loved it!

Owner's Response: Steve and Maureen, Thank you for the great review. We are glad you felt so comfortable in the cottage. We would welcome you back anytime!!! The broken pottery could be replaced, and we were just glad no one was hurt.

Beuatiful Beach Cottage ...quiet location, close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I staied alreayd many times in Anna Maria and also the city got more crowded over teh last years we still love this place to enjoy and relax as it combines best of both worlds. Island feeling like in hte caribean but if you drive over the bridge and have tons of sightseeing, shopping, movies...

We loved the house as it is very well maintained and there is everythign you need. The outside pool area is very nice and it is beautiful to have breakfast there. The matress in the master bedroom is very comfortable and new. In general we really found everything there from bikes to use to drive over to the Rod & reel pier up to cable Tv to wathc a movie in the evening. the owner/manager are very friendly and when we asked if we could stay a bit longer the last day as our flight left in teh evening it wa sno problem at all since the hoem was free for a day or two. So everythign was great I can only recommend the cottage and the owners..We woudl rent it again when we come back in October but unfortunately it is alreayd booke these dates...

Perfect for families with small children

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Peppertree Cottage. We have two small children and the pool provided non-stop entertainment for the kids. The pool and backyard make you feel as if you are in your very own private oasis. It's just fantastic! The beach was a short 5 minute walk away and the sand is like powdered sugar! The shells were abundant and we came home with many souvenirs. The location is very desirable as you are close to just about everything but not right in the thick of the hustle and bustle which allows for plenty of relaxation. Heather and Katy did a wonderful job of making us feel at home and the reservation process was seamless. We have already booked for next year! Can't wait to go back!
