Clean, perfect beach location, and equipped with EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I pulled up in my car, I felt right at home in this perfect beach cottage! Anything and everything you could possibly need is there! The advertisement is so true - just bring a bathing suit and flip flops. While visiting AMI, be sure to check out the yummy food at Eat Here, Ginny's, and Poppo's. Thank you, Captain Ed - we are already planning our next visit!

Perfect Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this quaint cottage. It had everything we needed. All we had to bring was food and drinks. The king bed with its soft bedding was great for a good night's sleep. Perfect location!!! 1 block from ocean on bay side and Rod & Reel Pier. Short walk to end of street leads to beach path to Bean Point which is not crowded, peaceful and what I consider the most beautiful place created by God. We so enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back.

Nice little cottage- perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

I was a little nervous at first because I have never used home away not have I stayed at someone's property before. My first impression was that it was perfect. Nice little cottage, tidy, everything you could possibly need which makes traveling by plane much more easier. To be honest I didn't really need anything but my own bathroom supplies. Ed was fabulous. Provided beach towels, chairs, coolers, cups, cooking supplies, washer and dryer. I loved this property and will definitely stay again and again. In fact I am already planning my next stay with Ed's Ballyhoo!

adorable, clean with all amenities needed. Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our most favorite vacations ever. The gentleman we rented from Captain Ed is a wonderful man. He came to visit us when we first got there and made us feel at home. The cottage is located in a perfect area and North Anna Maria Island. It is only two short blocks from bean point which is where the gulf and the bay meet. The rod and reel pier is right across the street great fishing great food. Every evening we walked or drove our golf cart to bean point and watch the most amazing sunset ever! The town is adorable there is a general store that has just about everything you need there. The shops have so many souvenirs that were handmade locally. We will definitely be back!!
