About the property

2 bed/2 bath Single Family POOL Home, steps to the beach

Stand alone, single family, ground level home has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with PRIVATE POOL and "cool to the feet", Travertine tile patio surround. Large open floor plan allows for everyone to be in the same room and enjoy your time at the beach. Sun-room allows for some private time or can double as additional sleeping space with a full-size fold out sofa for extra guests. The newly polished terrazzo floors mean you don't have to worry about dirt on the carpet!

The home is fully stocked with all dishes, cooking utensils, linens, beach chairs, beach toys and outside B-B-Q grill. Just a short walk down 66th Street to the sugar, white sand beaches of Anna Maria Island. Located in a residential neighborhood with NO busy streets to cross make this home very desirable for those with children. Another plus is that there are no houses over single story looking down on you....privacy! The trolley stop is just across the street and the Key Royale Golf Club is just a short ride away. Located mid-island, makes us close to historic Pine Avenue, shopping, churches and restaurants in the heart of Holmes Beach and a trolley ride away from Bradenton Beach & the #3 Rated beach in the World--Coquina Beach!

About Susan

I'm a "Snowbird" from Atlanta GA and when I'm out of town, my place is yours! Daughter lives on the island, so I have family right down the street! I love my little pink house...and I love this island!

Susan purchased this house in 2014

Why Susan chose Anna Maria Island

Small enough to manage the chores, but big enough for family and friends. Light and bright spaces and NO BUSY STREETS TO CROSS to get to the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico.

What makes this house unique

Travertine patio surrounds my pool, which means no hot pavers under your feet when you are getting in or out of the pool! Private tropical backyard surrounds the pool...bananas fresh of the trees!

Great Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Tickled Pink Cottage for Feb. and Mar. of both 2016 and 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Susan has been wonderful to work with has provided the rental with everything you need to sit on the beach or relax around the pool. The cottage looks exactly like the pictures on the web site and is well equipped in the kitchen. The location is convenient of bike riding on quiet streets and a short walk to the beach. Anna Maria Island is a charming vacation spot and this rental makes it perfect.

Amazing time at Anna Maria Island & the Tickled Pink Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a house through VRBO & we couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. The cottage was lovely, clean & exactly as pictured. The location was perfect & a very easy walk to the beach even for our 2 year old. The added bonus of a beautiful, private pool & outdoor shower made the experience even better. The house had everything you could need for a comfortable stay & plenty of beach items for both kids & adults. The section of beach near the house was very nice & never crowded. We also took a dolphin boat tour through Bradenton Beach Marina which we also highly recommend. We spent our last day at Bradenton Beach where we were lucky enough to experience Mantees swimming right by us.

Susan was responsive & so helpful during the booking process & to answer any quick questions during our stay. Our security deposit was quickly returned. We would definitely stay here again and are happy to recommend the cottage to anyone!

Thank you Susan for sharing your lovely home! We hope to be back & make this a family tradition.

Lovely property so close to beach

  • 4 of 5

Really nicely done out inside, spacious and well appointed with pretty much everything you needed. A bit close to the main road, and the pool wasn't heated so was a bit cool for easter, but the property itself was just what we wanted. Thank you.

nice home with a lot of space

  • 4 of 5

The home is well decorated and the interieur is according to the descripton. Everything was clean and well maintained. Nice terrasse with pool, but the traffic is noticable. We enjoyed the stay.

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed our home. We strive to make it perfect, the benefit of renting from the owner instead of a management company! Unfortunately, the traffic noise is bad all over the island as more people discover our little piece of paradise and Florida continues to promote tourism to our island. Thankfully concrete homes do a good job to insulate from outside noise!
