Why Postcard Cottages chose Ilexhurst
Heartbreakingly cute. There is no other way to describe this boutique chic, utterly perfectly furnished cottage. Your time off is precious - so make the most of it when you stay in somewhere this charming.
What makes this Cottage unique
Everything else this close to the beach is a lot more expensive. So why not stay and relax one house off the ocean in one of the cutest place me you'll find on the island.

We had a great stay. The cottage was clean, cute, and steps from the beach. It was perfect for our family. The owner was quick to respond to any questions.
Thanks for a clean, beautifully decorated home for our stay while in Anna Maria. Everything provided was helpful and clean. We were very comfortable, two adults and our two teen girls. We can't wait to come back. Thanks again.
Terrific location, quiet and safe.
Close to everything we needed. Able to walk everywhere. A little misleading about beach in backyard. Had to go around a condo or two. Needs grips in bottom of tub and grab bar in shower. Would come again.
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. If you'd let us know that a shower mat would have made your stay more pleasant, we'd have done our best to accommodate as we value our five star rating very much.
Additionally I've updated the description to read "Just think... when the waves pick up, you can walk to the beach in around 2 minutes or just listen to the ocean from your private patio.." so thanks for sharing your thoughts. We always want to be totally transparent with our guests and while we are one house off the beach, your'e right the walk can take a quick minute. :)
So cute and comfortable! Would love to come back!
Adorable cottage...perfect location!
Our stay at Surf was wonderful! It was immaculately clean, and the decor was absolutely adorable! There is literally a one minute walk to the beach out the back gate, which made our strolls to the beautiful emerald green waters painless. The complimentary beach cart, football and boogie board came in handy with my boys, and I, myself, enjoyed the beach chairs provided! We found a new favorite place to eat, The Feast, and would highly recommend to any in the area. Their pizza was fresh with homemade tomato sauce, and the grouper bites were melt-in-your-mouth amazing!!! We were greeted with quick replies of any questions we had during our stay, and would definitely stay at Surf again while visiting the island. As owners of a vacation home, we’re usually very picky about what we look for in a rental, and Surf exceeded our expectations!
Had a wonderful stay here! When we were not on the beach, the cottage had plenty of space to relax. The kitchen had all the basic utensils and an assortment of appliances(crockpot, blender,mixer), but we utilized the propane grill. It was great to have access to a beach cart with chairs, an umbrella, and lots of sand toys! Beach towels are plentiful in the cottage. You just need to bring your own cooler for extended stays on the beach. And the outdoor shower was convenient for rinsing off sandy feet. The location was ideal, a quiet side street and yet still close to shopping/dining/activities. We will definitely consider stay here again when we return to AMI!
