Sunny, dog-friendly cottage w/ a spacious patio and grill, steps from the beach!

This two bedroom, two bathroom beach cottage is so close to the beach you can smell the salt air! That's especially true on the spacious patio, where you can relax, dine al fresco, and grill out. The family dog is also welcome here for a small nightly fee.

The beach's sugary sand is right at the end of your street, so stroll down there to gaze out to sea or bask in the Florida sun. This beach house is tucked away in one of the town's quieter neighborhoods, and you can take the free trolley to other parts of the island if you're in the mood to explore.

White picket fences, Savannah shutters, and lush tropical landscaping give this property a classic Florida feel. Inside, the living room offers a comfortable place to relax while watching the 40-inch SMART TV, and you'll have your pick of two other TVs, a DVD player, and free WiFi, too. A full kitchen and a private washer and dryer provide all the comforts of home, and there's parking for one car in the driveway. Here for the winter? Ask Vacasa about this home's special Snowbird pricing.

Great location, clean, comfy.
Only negative, there were no spices, condiments one usually finds in an Air B&B.

This was a great place for our stay. Short walk to beautiful beach. Quiet area of island. Our first visit to Anna Maria Island. We’ll be back.

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt im Seashell. Die zentrale Lage war sehr schön und trotzdem ruhig
Die Nähe zum Strand war sehr schön und praktisch.

The cottage was a reminder of days gone by, when the island beaches were dotted with small, cozy cottages that met all your needs and was a very short walk to the beach.

Nicely decorated and comfortable!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. 2 bedroom with 2 baths is a bonus in an older home. My only beef is the very early check out time (10am) combined with a very late check in time (4 pm) means your stay is really almost a full day shorter than what you pay for.

We loved our stay here. It was literally five houses down from the walkway to the most perfect, almost private beach. We walked with our daughter to breakfast every morning at Ginny and Jane E's. We walked to dinner and ice cream. It was clean, well stocked and accessible. The backyard patio was an added bonus. We are local and will return again for sure!

We enjoyed the quaintness of this older beach cottage and found the location to be perfect for the two of us. Master bed was extremely comfortable and enjoyed the private back yard area. We did end up washing all the windows as they hadn’t been washed in awhile and it made everything look brighter. Also some landscape maintenance needs to be done in back as just a little work could make it picture perfect. We would definitely stay again. Vacasa was also our first time to use them and were very pleased with our experience with them.

Just a few houses away from the beach and no street to cross. There is a sidewalk that runs parallel to the beach and spans many streets that is great for walking your dog or just yourselves. Across the street is Ginny & Jane E.'s, a unique place for breakfast/shopping. Down the street is the wonderful Sandbar Restaurant that is right on the beach. The house is fenced and gated, perfect for bringing a dog. Beach chairs and beach towels are provided. The king bed is very comfortable. The washer/dryer is very convenient. The reason for giving 4 vs. 5 stars is that the TV area is a little cramped and there is no dishwasher (minor complaints). We've rented this place a handful of times and really enjoy it.

This little cottage is adorable and had everything we needed for our beach vacation. The beach is at the end of the street, making it a really short walk. Restaurants and shops are also within walking distance. Super convenient! (We loved walking to the Sandbar and Harry’s Grill for dinner.) However, because of the location you can hear the traffic from inside the house. This was not a deal breaker for us, but it may bother some. The nice, large private patio added a whole other space for us to hang out—which was nice as the cottage itself isn’t huge, and we are a family of five. The palms and other planting’s provide a nice backdrop and privacy. We loved that space. It also had a hose for spraying sand off of us. The bedrooms are decent—especially the master as it provides plenty of space for your things. (The master bed itself could maybe use an upgrade as you seem to sink into a hole on each side. We managed though.) Also, we loved that it has a small washer and dryer! All in all, we had a wonderful vacation, and this cottage’s proximity to the beach and restaurants contributed to that. We would stay here again.

Great place! So close to everything: the best beach, the best coffee shop, a free trolley to the pier, Holmes Beach or all the way down to Sarasota. You don't need a car to go to the best restaurants on the island. Comfortable, private and intimate.
