About the property

Ready to Relax in 700 Square Feet of Cottage Life?

This charming, quiet, cozy, Enchanted Cottage is just steps to Tampa Bay and the Historic Anna Maria City Pier, a fun place to fish! A short five blocks to the beautiful powder-soft, white sand and turquoise Gulf water of Anna Maria Island. You may also enjoy the beautiful sunrise from the pier over the bay, breathtaking sunsets on the beach and a twinkling of stars at night.

Accommodations include a king size bed in one bedroom, a twin trundle bed that opens for two in the second bedroom and a comfortable queen-sized sofa bed, each with new mattresses. A fully-equipped kitchen with dishware, cookware, and utensils, is included for your convenience. Bed linens, bath linens, beach towels and other necessities are provided for your care-free holiday with our professional linen service. Cable TV, unlimited wireless internet access and a home telephone with free North American long distance are also included. In season, the garden gives off a delicious fragrance of gardenias and plenty of shade and privacy abound on the front deck due to the surrounding palm trees. There's a washer and dryer as well as an outdoor shower on the rear porch. A shed in the back yard stores all the extras - bike, beach chairs, barbecue grill and more!

Enchanted Cottage was originally located on Bean Point during WWII. It served as officer headquarters and was strategic in the protection of the Tampa Port area during the war. Sometime during the 1950s or '60s the cottage was moved to its present location. In 2013, the interior of the cottage was totally renovated, including new appliances, but integrated the true 'Old Florida' look and feel.

Explore the Island on the free AMI trolley or it's only a short walk to island restaurants and ice cream, coffee and donut shops, taco or sandwich cafes, beach and designer clothing apparel stores, art galleries and island rental equipment stores, as well as a small grocery/deli. Or if golf is your game, there are 45 golf courses within a 30 minute drive!

The area is perfect for biking, golf, shuffleboard, amusement parks, fishing, birding, wildlife viewing, shopping, restaurants, sightseeing, swimming, snorkeling/diving, boating, water-skiing, surfing, windsurfing, beach walks, swimming, jogging, and more!

Great location, quaint and awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place on the North side of the island. VERY close to the Water Front restaurant and rod and reel pier (great grouper sandwich and cheap beer!). We saw dolphins swimming in the ocean just 20 feet from us! We loved using the bikes to go to Popo's taqueria and The Donut Experiment to get food. Would come back for sure!

This cottage was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great for a couple, could work with a small child too. Quaint, quiet on the North end of Anna Maria. Walking distance to great restaurants. Stocked with just about anything you need for the beach - towels, chairs, umbrella, beach mat, etc. The two bikes made it even easier to get around (one of them needs air in the tires). Gulf side beach is a short drive down the street but we never had problems finding parking. We had a great time and look forward to coming back.

Wonderful cottage. Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was cute and clean and perfect for 1-2 people or parents traveling with one child. Porches are beautiful and relaxing. It has washer and dryer, grill, two bicycles and outdoor dining table. Bathroom and kitchen are small but livable. Only disappointment was having to buy cooking spray and salt and pepper, etc. It was the first of about 20 properties I have rented through VRBO where there were no amenities in kitchen or bathroom.

This family, elderly and pet 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!
