About This Home
This sun-drenched 2br/2ba beach cottage centrally located by Holmes Beach in the heart of Anna Maria has been described as one of the “prettiest vacation homes on the island.” This authentic 1947 beach bungalow has been completely (and splendidly!) renovated with raised ceilings, travertine floors, and showers, granite countertops in the kitchens and baths, all new plumbing, electric, drywall, windows, doors, and appliances. There is crown molding throughout, and every door and window is fully trimmed with rosettes. Professionally designed with contemporary furnishings and fixtures, this historic bungalow has been stylishly reimagined and glows with cottage charm, elegance and attention to detail. Situated on a quiet road, nestled within lush tropical gardens beside a lagoon pool area and a private, elegant paver patio, this cottage is a contemporary paradise, perfect for families, couples, and small groups of friends. Best of all this cottage is just steps from sugar white sand beaches and the turquoise Gulf of Mexico. Living Spaces: This airy, open design of the kitchen/living/dining space truly makes this one-story cottage so inviting, enchanting and perfect for entertaining guests. The living room has warm-neutral tones, travertine tile floors, ten-foot ceilings with recessed lighting, and a beautiful tropical ceiling fan with natural palm blades. Hues of blue and cockleshell gray are added to the sofa, armchair, and seascape wall art. Tranquil, coastal ambiance best describes the feeling of this living room. Cozy up on the sofa for relaxing conversation, pleasure reading, or streaming your favorite shows or movies on the wall-mounted SmartTV. The living room sofa is a queen size sleeper. Leading off from the main living area is a laundry room, with a full-sized LG front-loading washer and dryer. Even when you’re on vacation, the laundry never stops! Kitchen & Dining: The open-design kitchen has cream color French country cabinets with decorative touches, and warm earth-tone granite countertops with rounded corners. This design mimics the beauty and charm of the French countryside and fosters a comfortable environment for serious cooking. A long, gleaming granite peninsula, lit by hand-blown glass pendant lights, offers breakfast bar stool seating for two. An ideal spot to sip your morning cappuccino or freshly squeezed citrus juice! This open design with peninsula seating makes the kitchen a dynamic social hub. The chef is never isolated from the social atmosphere, and mouthwatering culinary aromas will waft through the living space. The gourmet kitchen is appointed with stainless appliances including a French door fridge/freezer with icemaker, electric range, oven, microwave, oversize sink, and dishwasher. The fully equipped kitchen also has a toaster, coffee maker, Farberware pots and pans, cooking utensils, Chicago cutlery, iron and ironing board, as well as a garbage disposal unit. Off one side of the living room is a formal Chippendale dining table with a glass top and four upholstered chairs. Fix a fresh tropical fruit salad for brunch, grill some fresh seafood for dinner or serve Cuban picadillo. Enhance the meal with grilled pineapple, guacamole, or salsa and chips. This stylish dining table is a comfortable space to gather with friends or family for dinner table conversation and vacation memories of a lifetime. Bedrooms & Baths: This charming, one-story beach cottage has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room. Both bedrooms have spa-like ensuite bathrooms. There is also an outdoor shower by the pool. Both bedrooms have luxury mattresses, silent ceiling fans, and large smart TVs. Bathrooms are stocked with plush towels, hairdryers, and toiletries. The cottage has whisper-quiet air conditioning, which will keep the house as cool as you like it when the sun shines, and on hot nights, ensuring you a restful sleep. Both bedrooms have a King size bed, large closet, bureau, and ensuite bath with walk-in, glass door shower, and single-sink granite vanity. The primary bedroom has French doors that open out to the pool, patio, and garden area, as well as two further windows for ample cross ventilation. The second bedroom has an oversize soaking tub with marble walls. Outdoor Amenities: Outdoor amenities are the highlight of this charming tropical cottage. These outdoor amenities are your real incentive to escape to Anna Maria Island. Stroll through the French doors and into your own secluded patio paradise! Lush palms, hibiscus, frangipani, tropical trees and shrubs planted around a heated lagoon pool invoke a Caribbean island ambiance. The large pool has a hidden surprise that will delight the very young and the young at heart! Two deck jets arc water high into the air and three further jets bubble up from the large shallow section at one end. These fountains serve to circulate the water and provide playful fun! There is also a 38” granite table top in the pool, surrounded by a built-in sitting area. The table sits just above the water so that a book will stay dry, while your lower body remains cool in the water. There’s even a hole in the table center for a patio umbrella, so you can stay cool while the sun is high in the sky. There’s also a hot and cold outdoor shower to clean yourself off after emerging from the ocean or pool. Who doesn’t love an outdoor shower in the fragrant, island air? The gorgeous paver patio offers plenty of lounge chairs where you can relax with a good book, a cocktail, or simply sunbathe and nap. There’s a poolside alfresco dining table with seating for four, shaded by an umbrella, and a gas BBQ grill. This centrally located cottage is just a short stroll from sugar white sand beaches and the turquoise Gulf of Mexico. Literally, 160 steps (a one-minute stroll!) to the glorious sands of Anna Maria Island’s western shore, where you can warm your toes in the sand and surf. The beaches of Anna Maria flaunt the prettiest seashells in Florida. Anna Maria is also a top US location for rare seashells. The Neighborhood: Swim in the turquoise Gulf of Mexico where dolphins play daily. Bring your fishing gear to cast a line off the pier, or rent a boat to get out on deep water and fish. Walk to 14 different restaurants! The prime location offers an easy stroll to boutiques, entertainment, grocery market, and pharmacy. Nearby are boat rentals, and sunset cruises, as well as jet ski, bike, paddleboard, scooter, and kayak rentals. This seven-mile barrier island is Florida’s best-kept secret. There’s a saying here; “when you're on Anna Maria Island, you don’t go to the beach… because, on Anna Maria Island, you’re already at the beach.” The Island in the Sun is Florida’s best-kept secret. With Gulf temperatures averaging 84 degrees and 360 days of sunshine per year the surrounding waters of AMI are known as “the nursery” because of the large number of dolphins that raise their young here. With the island’s laid-back charm and leisurely unhurried living, speed limits are restricted to 25 mph - 35 mph throughout most of the island. This tropical paradise also offers free trolley service for both tourists and residents. Be sure to visit Anna Maria City Pier! Built in the early 1900s, this 700-foot-long pier provides a great vantage point for watching sunrises and sunsets, bird watching, and dolphin watching, and provides views of Tampa Bay and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. You can also fish off this pier. Bridge Street Pier, located on the southern end of the island in Bradenton Beach, honors the past while still embracing the future with its ‘Old Florida’ charm mixed with new restaurants, shops, galleries, and more. Enjoy the architecture and charm of Historic Green Village. Most of the restored buildings now run on solar panels and other modern energy-saving methods. The island, surrounded by water and interlaced with canals, is host to many amazing sea creatures - among them are Loggerhead Turtles, Manatees, and dolphins. Loggerhead turtles are a protected species and we have the Turtle Watch - a group of wonderful folks who search the beaches for nests and protect those nests until the eggs hatch (it is illegal for anyone to tamper with the nests). Manatees are also protected here in Florida - they are commonly seen in the summer when they leave their winter warm waters and migrate south.
