Cozy cottage w/easy access to the beach, shopping, dining, and more

Escape with your loved ones to the soft sands and warm waves of the Gulf of Mexico with this Brandenton Beach cottage. A convenient location, peaceful atmosphere, and easy beach access make it a perfect home base for your next Florida getaway!

You're only a few steps from a beautiful inland waterway, and blocks from the soft sands and gentle waves of the beach. Bradenton Beach's downtown is a short ride north on the free island trolley, with Holmes Beach only a little farther. Both feature shops, restaurants, and plenty of island charm.

Back at the cottage, free WiFi and cable on the flatscreen TV provide plenty of entertainment, with an enclosed yard gently swaying trees to enjoy outside. At dinnertime, the kitchen has all the tools you need for delicious home-cooked meals, and partial A/C will keep everyone in your group cool. If you're traveling with a larger group, this cottage can also be rented with its neighbor to accommodate up to eight guests.

Great home. Walk across the street to the beach and many more things to do on the island! Bring toilet paper and paper towels.. You get a small amount but not enough for the week..very quick responses from office with all my questions..the fenced in back yard was so helpful with the kids..only thing I couldn't find was a broom to sweep up all the sand

We really enjoyed our stay here. We had 6 people 2 adults, 2x 17 year olds, 16 year old, and a 6 year old. The short walk to the beach was amazing. This couldn't have been better for us. My only two suggestions: 1. Would be for the air conditioner to be turned down before the guest get here. It was really hot in the house when we arrived. However it did cool down after the sun went down and we had no problem after as we left it turned down. 2.Have some type of information about restaurants around, places to see on the island, where to rent golf carts, beach equipment, etc... We would definitely rent this place again.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Christopher. We will be sure that the local staff knows about your feedback and suggestions. We hope to host you again very soon.

We spent a week at Sparow's Nest and all but 1day we were at the beach. It is only a very short walk and you're on the beach enjoying the beautiful Gulf beach. Plenty of room in the home and even a washer and dryer. Be prepared to buy basics like anything to cook with such as spices or oil. There are lots and pans and some dishes but that's it. Vacasa supplies 1 roll of tp and paper towels and tiny bottle of dish soap and tiny bars of soap for bathrooms. Publix is not too far away in Anna Maria but Gulf Rd was tied up all day by 8th and 7th St so we went to the one in Longboat since it wasn't as crazy getting there. Didnt really want to travel around because of this but plenty of restaurants within walking distance near Bridge St.
Very clean and had plenty of towels. We would stay there again just bring our supplies.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sparrows Nest. It's nicely decorated and very clean. It's a couple houses down and across the street from the beach. You can walk to restaurants. Beautiful sunsets. We went in December and it was quite chilly. There is no heat in the home. At least it didn't work. The office texted me that there is a thermostat there for heat. It didn't work. I called the office and the girl said she didn't see that the unit had heat. She never returned my call. There is a new home being built across the street which construction started at 7:00 a.m. It was a bit noisy but no fault of theirs as the office texted to let me know. The house itself is cute. Entrance is in the back yard. Yard has nice grass. Could use some furniture in the back. The furniture in the pictures was not there. Also could use instructions on using the remote controls for the TV. Figured it out after awhile. All in all a nice play to stay and well worth the money. We didn't see beach chairs anywhere but it was okay since we had one and a blanket in the car.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. We are sorry to read you did not have a better experience. The home does have a heating system, and we are working on instructions for ease of use as well as instructions for the TV. The property manager is in the process of getting the outdoor furniture back in place.

We enjoyed our stay. We picked up our keys with a very friendly welcome. The place was centrally located on island.
Clean and everything we needed in kitchen. We would come back.

Sparrow's Nest worked out perfectly for our family of 4 as we were visiting grammy who lives one street over. Proximity to the beach and everything else fun to do in the area (the Mote, Dooley's Orange Grove, and renting a boat to explore the waters) was perfect. The house was comfortable and we were able to do our own cooking and grilling which made the trip extra special. Thank you!

Mom, son, and daughter had an AWESOME time at Sparrow’s Nest, just a few feet from beautiful Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island. We couldn’t have asked for a better location to explore the island each day and come back to our own little home away from home. One highlight was getting fresh fish at Orchard’s Fish Market and cooking it back at Sparrow’s Nest. We had everything we needed! It was do-it-yourself fine dining at its finest. SO FUN! We hope to stay there again one day. Thanks Vacasa for making our trip so smooth! PS Walking distance to both sunrise(s) and sunset(s). Priceless! No really, you don’t have to pay for that! Sun, sun, it comes!

Close to the beach, private back yard

We really enjoyed our stay. One piece of advice is bring a Garden hose for washing off after the many trips to the Beach otherwise this House is equipped w/ everything you need to enjoy the week on Anna Maria Island... we cooked...the kitchen is great & lounged inside on the one rainy day there...nice TV & Canle & also has a Full size washer & Dryer just for this house is very nice

Walk to water, private backyard. Great location and clean home.

We loved the location and the privacy at The little cottage. It was decorated so beautifully. It was so roomy for the four of us. I would recommend staying here. I will definitely rent the Sparrows Nest.
