In the living room, there is a sofa and loveseat. The sofa pulls out to a full size bed. Seagrape has free WiFi and cable.

One of Seagrape's favorite features is it's large wrap-around porch overlooking the Gulf. It's great for watching the Gulf, beautiful sunsets, eating outside or just relaxing.

So come and have a very enjoyable, memorable stay at Seagrape Cottage on Anna Maria Island!

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

My family was very happy with our stay. The place was very clean. We loved the homey feeling, and we felt right at home. We liked how everything was close by, especially the ice cream shop lol!! We definitely would recommend it to anyone.

Memories

  • 4 of 5

Sea Grape has the Florida cottage feel I was looking for, with enough modern amenities needed to be comfortable. Just a few steps and I was on the beach. Being directly accoss the street kept the beach goers from looking into my windows. Each day I stayed I was able to sit on the porch and enjoy breakfast in comfort. I will recomend Sea Grape to everyone I meet who is looking to take a break from the hustle and bustle of life for awhile and wants to find a little serenity. Thanks to the Keitels for sharing their home with myself and my family.

Beach cabin

  • 4 of 5

Not a bad place to stay and location is perfect. If your looking for fancy high class this isn't that but a old cozy beach cabin it is. I loved that about it and closeness to the beach.. Kitchen is great and appliances good. However I would bring my own blankets and sheets as we did I just felt comforters weren't washed every time or just to old. Perhaps new pillows and bedding and a little bleaching once in a while would help. Floors were for the most part free of sand but really need a mopping with bleach because our feet were so black. A little dusting and a quick 5 min window clean before the next arrival until they get dirty from the wind and gulf again wouldn't be hard. I don't mind worn but they need a good cleaner. Perhaps a new couch and love seat and tv's in all the rooms and at least one DVD player for down time is a must.. But even with these minor issues I would recommend this place we had a great time and the owners are really nice people. This is a great place and value for all you get and I'd definitely would stay again.

Another lovely summer vacation in Seagrape at Anna Maria

  • 5 of 5

My girls and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in Seagrape again this summer.....and are terribly saddened that “our” house is on the market for sale. Everything was just as in the past - no surprises; nothing unexpected - this made for a relaxed and restful vacation.

We wish Dan and family the best, but will miss our Seagrape!

The house is full of charm and character and location can’t be beat!
