When a starfish needs to get away, it might detach an arm in order to do so. But there's no need to be a stressed starfish, not when you can book this lovely cottage instead! This charming space is ideally suited for couples or small families, and dogs are welcome for a small nightly fee. Head out to the heated community pool and get away from it all as you settle into one of the lounge chairs.

Anna Maria Island sand is made of pulverized quartz, giving it a soft, glistening quality. And here, you'll be less than two blocks from the sea. Just around the corner, you'll find a stop for the island’s free trolley, which you can take all around Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, and Bradenton Beach. Ride it throughout the day for breakfast at Peaches, lunch at Skinny’s, and supper at Sign of the Mermaid.

Both bedrooms open to a private courtyard, where you can cook out on a propane grill. If you'd prefer to cook inside, a fully equipped kitchen awaits you. Two assigned parking spaces are provided during your stay, as well as free WiFi.

This was our second time in 3 years. We love the privacy and the pool the proximity to the beach. The unit is always clean and any maintenance issues are handled quickly. Only downside is the couch is too soft and the beds are way too firm.
We are looking to return again soon!

The location is superb. The apartment's furniture could use a refresher though. I have stayed in this particular unit before and it is a grest place to stay. First time with Vacasa, and the customer service is a little on the corporate side. Its either black or white, no middle ground or common sense to make things easier for the customer. Island Real Estate, the former agent was more accomodating to the customer, but overall, great time.

The pool once we could get out to it

One block from the Gulf Shore. Nicely decorated and comfortable atmosphere. Dog friendly and would stay here again.
Joan G. Jul 2018
Accommodations were comfortable and very close to the beach. Very enjoyable get away.
Terri C. Jul 2018
Starfish 2 was clean and just as pictured. It is just a very short walk to the beach. Quiet beach town with beautiful white sand and clear water.
Emily S. Jun 2018
We enjoyed everything about this place. It was clean, cute, accommodating, and one block, a short walk to a beautiful beach!
We hope to visit again soon.

Starfish #2 is bright and clean in a quiet neighborhood. The only drawback is Vacasa property management only supplies small bar soaps for bathrooms. There was liquid dish detergent & one packet of dishwasher cleaner in the kitchen. Nice bath and beach
towels & small beach chairs were provided. Beds were firm & comfy. Decor was beachy and bright. Nice private side & back patios well kept. Clean pool area with sunny & shady areas is very lush and well maintained. Just remember to "pull out" the shower faucet fixtures in the bathrooms to get the water going! We had to call the maintenance man and he showed us how to use the shower fixtures...silly us! Our only suggestion would be perhaps to change check in & check out times to 3:00 pm and 11:00 am if possible. We really enjoyed our stay at Starfish.

I loved the location,such an easy walk to the beach. The pool area was beautifully landscaped, private, and the water always warm and inviting. A couple negatives- the couch was extremely uncomfortable and the dining table and heavy dining chairs were a little oversized for the space. Overall we had a great vacation and will be returning again.

This was our first time to AMI and we wanted to find a location close to our friends. We found Starfish and it filled all of what we were looking for. Loved the property and it’s location with an easy walk to the beach and shopping. The pool was very nice and the house was very cute and well decorated. Plenty of room and homey. Would love to return again next year !!!

We traveled to the island with a group of families for a senior spring break. The 4-plex was a nice option since the 3 of the 4 units were our group. We used the pool area to gather after a day of playing on the island. It was only a 30 second walk out to the beach but we found ourselves floating in the pool most days. It was very peaceful and quite often it was just the 2 of us. The unit came with beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, a boogie and a skim board so you won't have to pack those. It was a washer and dryer of pots/pans/utensils and the air worked great. Our traveling companions had a belt break on their air conditioning and maintenance was there in a flash.

Carol Bernard had to give me the bad news that our unit would not be ready on 6-19 as planned. She left a message for me and sent emails. She was very helpful and apologetic. She understood how important this rental was to us. She made a bad situation better and we were happy with the results!

Cute, Cute, Cute. We would consider renting multiple units in the future for family get together. Amazing what can be done in a small space.
Luncan F. Jan 2012
Very clean place!! We had a problem with disposal the first day of our stay and it was quickly and professionally resolved. We would most definitely rent from Island Real Estate again.
Ginette . Dec 2011
We were very pleased with the cottage- very private, beautiful garden, close to the beach. Very nicely decorated. We appreciated having internet access.
The F. Dec 2011
Very nice property, pool was great. Response to hall light and wash room light that did not work was quick. Repairman was very nice and very knowledgeable. Fixed problem with minimum delay. Thanks for all your help on our wonderful stay on Anna Maria Island. It is now our #1!
