Newly updated to become your favorite place to stay on the island, Lakeview Cottage now boasts a private heated pool and spa, along with newly redesigned outdoor areas so you can dine al fresco, recline in the chaise with a good book, float in the pool with the kids, or relax in the heated spa at the end of the day. There's even a new hot-and-cold outdoor shower, enclosed for privacy.
The house itself was built by a master craftsman in the late 1950s, and still lovingly maintained and used by his family in the 21st century. Even with improvements and additions in recent years, it's a wonderful example of Mid-Century Modern architecture, a lovely blend of that era's design aesthetic, mixed with a touch of the Orient.
You'll notice the Asian inspiration as soon as you turn into the driveway - rather than a garage door, you'll find a screen reminiscent of Japanese homes. Although it can be used as a carport, the owners most often enjoy it as a large screened room, where cooling breezes make it a wonderful spot to relax. A laundry room and half-bath are tucked away to the side, accessible from the new outdoor shower.
Inside you'll find an open living space, where sun room, dining area, kitchen and another seating area merge for optimal comfort and convenience. Down the hall you'll find two comfortable bedrooms, each with a king-size bed, with a flat-panel tv and Bose radio in the master bedroom.
Of course, the best part of this terrific cottage is its location. With Pine Avenue and the village of Anna Maria just one block to the south, you can walk to everything, from the gorgeous Gulf beaches to the historic Anna Maria City Pier and everything in between. Pine Avenue offers restaurants, shopping, the community theater, historic Roser Church, and the Anna Maria Historical Society Museum. If you want to explore the island, catch the free Island Trolley at the end of the street.
Dogs accepted with a non-refundable pet fee. Sleeps 4 in two King beds. Pool heat fee of $100 per week populates on every reservation so you can have unlimited access to the heated outdoor spa. Please Note: Pool and Spa heat charge that automatically populates in the reservation is for 1 week only. If you're staying longer than a week, additional charges will apply.
Stays of less than one week may be available during the off-season and at the last minute.
A NOTE ABOUT HEATED POOLS: Since running pool heat is a very expensive proposition for our owners, they ask that we collect $100 per week (plus tax) from guests requesting the pool at their rental property be heated.
