Sugar-like sand between your toes, a gentle breeze caressing your skin, as you watch the beautiful Florida sunset.

A stroll up Bay Drive to the Pier, enjoying the postcard-like views of sailboats bobbing on the bay.

An evening dip, cool drink in hand, in the beautiful pool, surrounded by lush tropical scenery, as you slowly ease into 'vacation' mode.

Morning breakfast in the screened porch as you enjoy the 'show': birds chirping, squirrels fence-running, a symphony of nature that welcomes you to another glorious 'beach' day.

Tortuga Cottage has it all.

Located at 108 5th St. S., Tortuga Cottage provides all the easy access you want to the beach, the bay, restaurants, shops, and recreational activities, while at the same time offering the ultimate in an 'Old Florida-style' home vacation experience. Ooozing with charm, Tortuga Cottage has been completely renovated, and is as much worth the stay as the location itself.

There's room for up to six guests so whether it's a girls' week or family getaway, you'll always feel cozy, not confined. This light and airy vacation home is only three houses to the white sandy beach of Anna Maria and only two blocks from Historic Bridge Street. You'll be just a flip flop's walk to the beach and Bridge Street. Open a bottle of wine and enjoy a little time to breathe as you relax in the screened lanai.

Tortuga Cottage is set amongst native plants with a beautifully exterior. It is a wonderful oasis of Old Florida charm and calm set back on a quiet street, mere steps from the beautiful sugar white beaches of Anna Maria Island and Bridge Street!

The cottage consists of two bedrooms/two bathrooms. The 1st bedroom has a king size bed, the 2nd has one twin bed with a trundle and there is a sleeper sofa in the light and airy living room. The entrance to the cottage has an adorable dining area, and the living room has plenty of comfortable chairs to curl up and read that book you've been promising yourself. Indeed, with the premium linens in both bedrooms, you might not want to get out of bed even after reading your book!

Should there be a rainy day at 108 5th Street South, you'll be able keep the whole party entertained. Digital cable and a DVD player in the living room are all waiting for you and the popcorn. Music lovers have available a portable Bluetooth speaker. In the master and guest bedroom are flat screen TVs with premium cable package and Roku in the master. The living area features a large flat screen TV with DVD player. Wireless Internet with internet speed to 150 Mbps is available throughout for tablets or any other digital toys you may bring. Or maybe you've adopted a 'life is simpler at the beach' philosophy and want to keep it low tech.

Sunnier days can be spent out back. Your pool is refreshing and has a six foot privacy fence all the way around. Swimming all day builds an appetite so be sure to stock up on burgers and kabobs for the grill. If you're not a grill fan, try whipping up something in the kitchen. Tortuga Cottage starts to feel less like a vacation home and more like your own after you've made a few memories here.

With so many island activities you might consider extending your stay. You can stroll seven miles of 'flour soft' sand or take in the local art culture on Historic Bridge Street. But you haven't officially arrived in Anna Maria Island until you take a ride on the free trolley. Come see for yourself - stay for a week at Tortuga Cottage and you'll want to make it your first choice for Bradenton Beach again and again.

This property is pet friendly with an additional pet fee of $150 per pet. Pets must be under 25lbs.

Pool heaters in private homes are locked for your safety and controls must not be tampered with as they are monitored by the pool company. 85° is the highest heat temperature setting. Pool temperatures will probably stay around 76° during the winter months. Please note if cold days occur, water temperatures will drop and may stay cooler longer. Pool heaters will not operate and will automatically shut down if outside temperatures get too cold. While we take every precaution to ensure that pools are heated as specified, weather conditions may affect the temperature of the pool. Outdoor spas are not hot tubs. The temperature of a spa is typically set at the same temperature as the pool. In the event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, Duncan Real Estate will expedite repairs as quickly as possible. It may be necessary to close swimming pools for maintenance purposes. No refund or rent adjustment will be made for circumstances beyond our control.

Great place to stay. Quaint located near anything you might need..............especially the beach.

I would highly recommend this. Lots of nice touches in the cottage.

Would prefer more room in the Master Bedroom with a Queen Bed, other than that - pretty perfect!

Owner's Response: We're so happy your family enjoyed your stay with us! Of course the king size bed takes up some space in the master bedroom--most guests prefer bed space over room space, however we do appreciate that feedback. Please let us know when you would like to return to Tortuga Cottage as we offer a return guest discount! Thanks, Team Duncan Duncan Real Estate

Tortuga Cottage is ideally located on the desirable southern end of Anna Maria Island, only two houses to the beach! A slice of old Florida, with seven miles of sugary white sand beach, voted one of the 'Best Islands in the USA'. AMI showcases a tropical landscape with crystal clear waters reminiscent of the Caribbean. Anna Maria is a treasure found on Florida's Southwest Gulf Coast conveniently located between Tampa (45 min.) and Sarasota (30 min.) it is also only about 2 hours from Orlando. You'll be surrounded by warm Gulf waters; Tortuga Cottage is located only steps to the Gulf of Mexico beach and a few blocks to the Historic Bridge Street. Anna Maria is fast becoming a hot spot for gastronomic delights. Feel free to take a walk or catch the free local Trolley to local restaurants or attractions. Some of our favorite restaurants are: Eat Here in Holmes Beach; The Waterfront Restaurant, Sandbar & Sign of the Mermaid in Anna Maria. Minnies is a great place for breakfast, and Tortilla Bay and lunch. It's about a 30-45 minute drive to Sarasota. Other Activities: Zoo/Marine/Wildlife Park, boating, basketball court, Health Spa, Parasailing, Miniature Golf
