Old Florida-style cottage w/ private heated pool - walk to the beach - dogs OK!

Come live the island life when you stay in this charming "Old Florida" style cottage with a private saltwater pool and close proximity to the beach. You'll also have room for three cars in the roomy carport and access to Anna Maria's free trolley.

With only one house between you and the glittering quartz sand on the Gulf of Mexico, start your mornings with a walk on the beach before making your way down to Gulf Drive for pastries and coffee at Ginny and Jane E's. Check out the Pine Avenue shopping district and Bayfront Park for picnicking, then relax on the sand at Bean Point Beach, and visit Rod and Reel Pier and Restaurant for fishing and dining.

The open floor plan keeps everyone close but not cramped, and the air conditioning keeps you cool. Designer-inspired furnishings and a palette of bright, coastal colors provide a playful yet comfortable space to relax. For entertainment, you'll have flatscreen TVs, complete with DVD players, and free WiFi access throughout. The family dog will also enjoy themselves here for an additional nightly fee.

Lounge in the screened lanai for a reading session, quiet conversation, or board games. Cook in the full kitchen or fire up the charcoal grill and make some mouthwatering seafood kabobs next to your sparkling pool. This home offers a private washer/dryer, too, so you can pack light for your trip.

We loved the location of this cottage. It was so close to the beach. We spent every day walking the beach and playing in the waves. We had marvelous weather.
The cottage offered everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Having a washer and dryer was very nice. We
Would definitely return.

It was great to have a place that was so close to the beach. We were able to allow kids to stay at the house while we went to the beach or if we forgot something we could easily run back. We didn’t need a pack mule to bring our things to the beach. The cart to bring the new chairs and umbrella was awesome. The kids loved the pool. It was great to have the option of the beach or pool. The kids didn’t appreciate the beach as much as the adults did, go figure. The house is adorable and perfect for a family. The neighbors are pretty great too.

This is a great little vacation cottage. A short walk to the beach without having to cross any streets, just a sandy path away. Ladies, you will want to bring a makeup mirror as the bathroom cabinets are unusually high and you will not be able to see yourself in the mirror unless you are above average height. The dining area has nice lighting. A full-length mirror would be nice to have as well. The pool is wonderful and there is a nice cool screened porch in the front. We used the beach cart and it made our trips down to the beach easy. They provide a number of beach towels which was very nice and a washer dryer on the property. Bring extra paper products. Enjoy!

Only one house away from the walk over to the beach. Older house but adequately furnished. Really liked the screened porch on the front and the private pool. Very glad it is pet friendly

Great location
Benjamin R. Aug 2020
It was very easy to access the beach with the nearby public access, only a couple houses away. The property is a short bike or walk away from Pine street. The pool in the backyard was awesome. When we arrived there were alot of pool toys available as well as beach items. There was a beach umbrella and several beach chairs. Also, there was a nice cart for transporting all the gear to the beach. The house was nice for our family of five, but be sure to grab essentials the grocery store. There are several pool/beach towels available and one hair dryer in each bathroom. In the second bedroom there is an xbox with several games. We had a wonderful stay and would stay at this location again in the future. Thank you.

Very comfortable and good location

It was extremely clean and so close to the beach. I would have given it 5 stars, but it had an insect problem, I believe due to a rainy night.
Irina F. Jul 2020
Location is perfect. Short walk to the beach. Lanai was the favorite place forthewholefamily.
Tara J. Mar 2020

Perfect Beach House—very comfortable—steps from the beach
Marsha D. Feb 2020
The home was clean and comfortable. It was well supplied with dishes and cookware. We shopped at Publix (forgot to get coffee filters so had to used paper towels). We walked on the beach everyday, although January can be quite cool on Santa Maria. High temps were in the low 70's.
Would love to return sometime when it is a bit warmer.

Location is great and the house is perfect for 2 people.

Nice old Florida cottage just one house from the beach. Easy parking.
David S. Dec 2019
Place was clean and a short walk to the beach and shopping on Pine Avenue. Pool is is a nice plus. Only issue we had was with a failed condensate pump that caused water to leak on to the floor. Once we contacted Vacasa it was fixed within a few hours.
Manager response:
Hello David, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize that there was an issue with the pump, we are happy to hear that our local staff were able to get it fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused during your stay. We do hope you will allow us to host you again in the future.

The cottage & location was perfect, we had everything we needed - right down to a fully stocked kitchen to very comfortable beach chairs to use. I will recommend this beach cottage & company to my friends! Thank you Vacasa for a great mother & daughter (overdue) vacation.

Only steps to the beach, loved the pool and the quietness.
Lisa W. May 2019
The property was everything I had hoped for! The house was clean and nicely updated. The pool and grounds were nice and private. We enjoyed quiet mornings in the lanai having coffee and it was a bonus that we could hear the surf from there. A short stroll to the beach to watch the sunsets in the evenings to top off the days. We absolutely hope to return soon!
Christine F. Mar 2019
The location of cottage is great, walking or taking the trolly to your everyday needs. The pool was wonderful, plus beach is short walk. Cottage was clean and user friendly, very nice and quiet area, very relaxing would rent again.
Cynthia D. Jan 2019
This is a very comfy cottage, just as described. Nicely equipped in a quiet neighborhood. Wish we could have enjoyed the pool more but we had very cool weather. It was very private with beautifully landscaped surroundings. I would love to come back!
Robert O. Nov 2018
Proximity to beach, restaurants, comfortable home with a very nice pool in the back and a screened in lanai in the front.
KATHY T. Aug 2018
We had a really nice time. I know the place was recently bought by a new owner so a few things should be updated and the pool area could use some new furniture etc. However, the place is just too cute. I'd stay there again! Clean and cute!
