Indulgent cottage w/ Gulf views, heated private pool, and easy beach access!

This Anna Maria Island rental was given the name Sweet Retreat Cottage for a reason. Offering a private heated pool, views of the Gulf, and beach access nearby, it won't take long to discover for yourself why this house is so spectacular!

Located a block from the beach on the north end of the island, you'll find easy fishing on both Anna Maria Island Pier and Reel Pier. The Gulf of Mexico is just across the street with its powdered sugar soft sands. And after a day of beachcombing, you can treat yourself with a double-size brownie from the Island General Store on Pine Ave.

Of course, you don't even have to leave this rental to find paradise. Lounge on the patio, swim in the heated pool year-round, grill up some fresh-caught fish on the gas grill, and whip up family meals in the fully equipped kitchen. Free WiFi and a flatscreen TV provide entertainment during off-hours, while a spacious tub in the guest bathroom may be just what the doctor ordered. Feel free to pack light, as a private washer/dryer lets you freshen up laundry. You'll also have two parking spots for your very own.

Your vacation to Anna Maria Island is sure to be special when you stay in this charming cottage - book today!

The place was as shown on the pictures and even better. It has everything you need for a pool and beach getaway. Great place, clean and well maintained, warm pool, 2 minute walk to the beach. Only a minor issue with the keypad lock, but the vacasa team was there next day to address. Definitively recommended.

The house is in a great location and the pool was great fun, but there were a lot of problems with the place. We had to call maintenance to fix the dryer, fix the fire alarm and fix a leak in the bathroom plumbing. They also did not leave us any soap, dishwasher detergent or anything in the kitchen. I was expecting more for the price.
Manager response:
Dan, thank you for staying with us. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the home, pool, and location. We are happy to see that our team worked quickly to assist in addressing your concerns during your stay. We apologize for the lack of supplies. We do supply a starter supply of items such as toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, and dish soap to ensure the first night of their stay starts off well. We encourage guests to bring their preferred items if they anticipate needing more. Should any issues arise during your stay, our guest services team is available 24 hours a day to help. We hope to have the opportunity to host you in the future, for a much more enjoyable stay!

Sometimes when you rent a place - it feels like a rental.
This house makes you feel like you are home!
Should I decide to vacation in this area again I will book this house!

Great location, short walk to the beach. A wonderful bike ride to the Rod and Reel and 2 scoops. The house was quaint and the pool was the perfect cooling off spot after a day on the beach.
Harry B. Aug 2020
Beautiful home with an even prettier backyard! Walk to the beach was short, and the home has lots of little extras that made our vacation that much more special! Would definitely go back again! Thank you for a great vacation during a pandemic
that allowed our family to come together!

Todo limpio, facíl acceso a la playa, facíl chek out. Justo lo que prometen. Muy recomendado lugar.

The proximity to the beach and the fantastic pool made our week an enjoyable one. I have no real negatives to share, but one suggestion for the owner is to add smart tv's to the other 2 bedrooms. Most younger guests would love it!

We loved the pool and backyard with the palm trees. Felt like an oasis.

We loved this house - adorable and comfortable furniture and decor; safe, quiet and convenient location... just wish the weather has been better. Only suggestion: but a new coffee maker.
Andrea S. Aug 2019
This house was just enough!!! Not only were the rooms good sizes, but it was super cute and tidy! No wasted spaces and just enough room. The backyard was amazing as well! And a quick walk to the beach. We will definitely stay again!!!
Kevin M. Aug 2019
House is excellently situated near the north end of the island with the beach directly across the street. The pool was also great, with well maintained tropical landscaping. Our group which includes 2, 4, and 8 year old kids had a blast at the beach and pool. House is also very comfortable and nicely decorated.

This vacation was by far one of the best! The Sweet Retreat was perfect for our family. It had everything we needed. Looking forward to staying here again very soon.

We had a sisters retreat at this adorable cottage. It is completely redone in blues and yellows. The kitchen is better equipped than my own. The pool is great and the cottage is really just across from the beach.
