About Mary Horton

I grew up in the land of 10,000 lakes (Minnesota), went to college out west in Colorado and Wyoming,

and lived for awhile in Dallas, Texas before returning to my home state of Minnesota to raise my two boys. I now spend time in both Minnesota and Florida and enjoy traveling, sports (playing and watching), and cooking.

Mary Horton purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Mary Horton chose Anna Maria

Having traveled to Anna Maria for over 30 years, I had always dreamed of having a cottage on the island. I've always enjoyed the beautiful and quiet beaches on the north end of the island where I had frequently walked the shores in search of sand dollars. I fell in love with the cottage the minute I saw it. There is a charming, comfortable, relaxing quality about it, inside and out. It truly is a "Peace of Paradise".

What makes this cottage unique

I love this cottage because of it's location to the beaches, the Rod and Reel and City Piers, its old Florida charm, and the wonderful private outdoor areas that surround the cottage and the pool.

Perfect short break stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Over from the UK & staying in the Disney area so drove for a few hours down to AMI & had a wonderful 2 night break in this beautiful cottage. Huge inside, exceptionally clean, comfortable beds, brilliant showers, heated pool/area was perfect for relaxation. Few minutes walk to the sea. Would definitely stay again, we all enjoyed every minute here. Thank you.

Lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Nice and spacious! My daughter and I stayed a week. We loved the lush green trees and plants that make the back yard and pool area feel so tropical . Nice pool with a perfect place for reading. A straight shot and a short walk to the beach is a giant plus. The cottage has everything you need. Even some nice pool floats.

Location is perfect,

Looking forward to coming back!

This cottage is a perfect vacation spot for someone who wants a relaxing, worry free vacation. Great for a couple, but could also accommodate a small family. This area of Anna Maria Island is quiet and very low key, but the area still has plenty of dining choices and nearby beaches. The cottage is very well kept and has a really nice pool, kept at 85 degrees. When I mentioned to the owner that unfortunately we wouldn't be able to access the pool without a railing, she had her pool person install one for us---NICE, and very much appreciated. The pool is right outside the bedroom or family room door, so very handy. Kitchen is well-equipped and spacious. There is a general store nearby which has the basics along with a deli with very good sandwiches. The Publix is only about 15 min. away. The weather was unbelievably nice and warm the 3 weeks we were there--only one overnight thunderstorm, which we barely noticed. All in all---perfect!

Fabulous stay at Peace of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

All six of us had a wonderful time! Room for everyone; every amenity thought of. The pool was great with all the floaties for relaxing! The kitchen was well-equipped so we could make simple, healthy meals when we didn't want to enjoy local restaurants. Sunrises and sunsets were breathtaking, just steps away with several beaches to choose from. Thanks, Mary for providing a wonderful home away from home! The Christmas tree was a much-appreciated touch 😃
