"My boyfriend and I stayed in this home for 3 days. I have been coming to Anna Maria for years and love the location of this home. It is near both sides of the island, and very near all of the fun night life and restaurants. The house was beautiful, and the view of the canal was so peaceful! If you plan to cook for the week, make sure you purchase every single item you need, as the place does not house any condiments or basic food necessities! Wish we would've known that beforehand! The pool is beautiful. We loved biking around the area and the scenery is amazing. Overall, this was a very romantic, unique place to stay and we will most definitely come back in the future, should we plan to vacation on Anna Maria Island!"

"A beautiful house in a beautiful location. The house is stunning clean and ideally located for a wonderful holiday on a glorious island. The gardens pool and outside seating and views are glorious. The house is internally furnished to a lovely standard and 2mins from beach on bay side and walkable beach on gulf side. Well stocked with chairs and other equipment. Well air conditioned would certainly return here."

"Beautiful Beach Bungalow! Perfect place to go for a few days w family to celebrate a wedding! Cute little cottage with all the comforts from home! Rode bikes around town and to some private beaches every day and then came back to the house for a swim in the pool. Very relaxing and would do it again next year!"

"You will love this house for its amenities and thoughtful inclusion of everything you would want in a rental house. It's like being in your own home. Can just jump in the pool for an evening swim or exercise on the patio at sunrise. Walking distance to the Bay beaches and short rides to the wide white sand ocean beaches. Six people fit comfortably. Loved our stay!" -Patricia, November 2017
"Awesome place - it was perfect for our family of six (2 adults, 4 kids). Location was perfect, a short walk or bike ride to the bay beach and downtown Anna Maria shops and restaurants. Michelle was wonderful to work with - everything was just as described. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool and bikes! Thank you! We hope to visit again!" -Nicole, November 2017
"Beautiful house in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Pictures of the house are 100% accurate! Nice updated kitchen, wonderful backyard, pool, dock and seating area. Short walk to white sand beaches and piers located on the Tampa Bay side. Michelle was great with quick responses to all of our questions or requests. Great house size for 4 to 8 people with lots of amenities (movies, bikes, kayak, beach chairs, plenty of beach towels etc.) as we were 4 adults using 3 bedrooms. We look forward to coming back soon!"

"Excellent amenities! Watched shooting stars on the dock, kayaked the canals and rode the bikes to get ice cream. The beds were comfy. The house is adorable and beautifully decorated." -Tracey, April 2018
"This home was amazing it surpassed my expectations of the home. The short walk to the beach The Kayaks that you rent there is so much to do just within this little home it was great. My kids loved it my family enjoyed it and it's a short walk anywhere on that island absolutely stunning." -Melissa, June 2018
"We were two small families from different states that met up to stay in Anna Maria. This house was absolutely perfect, and the trip was wonderful! The kids especially loved being able to play in the pool when we were finished with the beach for the day. We also had a wonderful time exploring different beach areas and parts of the island. The owners were very nice and quick in response to any questions we had before and during our stay. I would recommend this house and Anna Maria Island to anyone!" -Jamie, July 2018
"Cute house, very clean. Can walk anywhere you need. Beach right across the street! Cute house, very clean. You can walk to all the downtown shops. Heated pool was very relaxing. Couldn't have asked for a better stay!" -Michelle, October 2018
"We almost don't want to review, so we can keep the Sunshine Cottage all to ourselves! What can we say...everything was amazing!!! Caught dozens of fish off the dock, swam in the amazing pool, rode bikes to the nearby stores and cites, hands down amazing place and experience! We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon!!! The only bad thing...was one week was not long enough! Will go back every year for our anniversary!" -Jennifer, November 2018
"I just loved this home. The proximity to the beach was a couple minute walk. The vision of the back of the house through the window showed an amazing pool, a sitting area right on the water with boats and a kayak at the private deck. A small screened porch would be perfect for those buggy nights. It was unusually cool and rainy when we were there, but we had Michelle turn on the heater in the pool. We swam every day and night. Loved riding the bikes that you can rent at the house. So easy to get around and go to shops and eateries. Michelle was great responding with questions we had and the realtor was nearby to pick up the keys. I would love to stay here again with better weather to take advantage of the kayak and dock. You will not be disappointed." -Renee, December 2018
"We loved every minutes. Beautiful island, wonderful house and garden. Would love to come back!"

"Sunshine cottage was beautiful! The house is laid out in such a way that allows open and very family friendly living. It's decorated beautifully with lots of tasteful beachy touches. Kitchen had almost everything you could ever think of to prepare a meal, the laundry and big folding space what is appreciated. The living areas were comfy and lead to lots of easy relaxing. The lanai was a lovely space to share a meal and or read or play games without bug bites. The outdoor furniture and pool were awesome. I recommend paying extra for the pool chiller if it's steamy out. The bedrooms are well appointed and the beds comfortable. Check in was a breeze, the location is great, and Michelle was available for any and all questions. We ordered delivery of groceries from Publix to the cottage and that made it very convenient without losing time on the island. We found the easiest way to see the sunrise and sunset was a quick walk to Ana Maria Island pier. Bean point is peaceful and gorgeous. We took Magnolia Avenue to the beach each day for easy beach access. The cottage is on a quiet street with easy access to everything. Very pleased with our visit, thank you!"
