Lovely cottage steps away from the Beach
Wife and I really enjoyed our stay. Beach is incredible and weather could not have been better. The street had quite a bit of traffic but I guess the island is very popular so not much can be done about that. Did not take advantage of kayaks as water was a little too rough. Great cart for dragging all the umbrellas and chairs to the beach. Would be nice to have a couple of bikes at the cottage, we ended up renting two and rode the length of the island on great bike lanes. Lots of restaurants and bars with excellent music within walking distance. Sea food was excellent. Everything closes at 10 pm so that seemed a little odd but after a day on the beach, we were normally ready to go home lol. We definitely would highly recommend the place.

Glad you enjoyed the beautiful beach house. Yes there is a lot of traffic in Paradise!
Great place to stay on AMI. We had a fantastic time there for our long awaited vacation! Such a cute place. All the amenities and location across from the beach were the best. Loved the bed, so comfortable. We would definitely come back to this little paradise. Thanks Bruce for all your help! Much Appreciated.

Loved our stay in Anna Maria Island!
Perfect place for us. All within walking distance and or take the Trolley. The best for watching the sunsets! And sunrise around the corner! Very comfortable cottage. Loved the beds. Plenty of space for the two of us. Would love to come back someday! We really did not want to leave. Thanks Bruce for all of your kindness!

Happy to hear your vacation was awesome!
convenient, clean and lovely
Sent my nephew here for a weekend honeymoon trip. They loved it and said they will be back. Perfect location, cozy and clean. Bruce is so good at responding and is there to help at any time with questions etc. My husband and I stayed there in Sept 2022 and loved it as well. We will definitely be back. We also got to meet the owner so that was a nice surprise as well to get the history on the home. So glad the hurricane did not do any damage. you will be pleasantly surprised how nice this cute home is.

Thanks and we look forward to having you back again. So glad the honeymooners enjoyed their special time!
My husband and I had the best time staying here. The cottage is just perfect and very clean! It has everything you could possibly need for your stay. It’s a quick walk across the street to the beach with the chairs, umbrella and beach cart provided. You can walk down to Bridge Street for shops and restaurants. The owner stopped by to check in since we were there the week after hurricane Ian and he was the nicest guy to talk to! We will definitely book again!!

Could not have asked for a better place to stay! Perfect location with easy access to the beach across the street. The cottage is so quaint and clean, has absolutely everything you need. You can easily walk to Bridge Street and other locations close by. The owner stopped by since we were there the week after hurricane Ian and he was the nicest guy in the world! Will definitely book another stay. Thank you!

Loads of updates in this great vacay rental!
We're just crazy about this place! It's so comfortable and relaxing here. The owners recently made many updates including a new refrigerator and new living room furniture. The deck is a great place to hang out and watch the sunset and you truly can sit up in bed and see the gulf. There are terrific amenities in the home and for the beach. This house is within walking distance to Bridge Street--a hub of activity on the island, including The Bridge Tender Inn (live music!), Blue Marlin, and Daiquiri Deck, among the shops and mini golf. A great new addition to Bridge Street is the candy store where you can watch the fudge being made. Love, Love, Love it here and can't wait to come back!

My son and I visited in August 2022 and had the best time!! We needed some “vitamin sea” and the Seaview Cottage was perfect!! The beach was so beautiful!! And, those sunsets…absolutely amazing!! We loved that you were able to walk to some restaurants, too. We hope to be back again someday!! Thanks for a relaxing and fun stay!! -Sarah

Thanks for the kind remarks. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again!
My husband and I took our end of the summer vacation in July and stayed in this adorable house! We loved it! The house has so much character and the pictures honestly don’t even do it justice! It was everything we needed in a vacation rental. Nothing fancy or extravagant but it was just perfect. Directly across from the beach so it’s super convenient to no have to find public access and haul all your beach necessities, an outdoor shower to rinse off after a day in the sun and surf, and an absolutely adorable and comfortable house to spend your down time. Super close to some good places to eat (we recommend the daiquiri deck - get the nachos). And Bruce was so easy to deal with. Highly recommend!

Wonderful Pet Friendly Property
This house is comfortable from the moment you enter! It has plenty of space and is well stocked in everything you need. We enjoyed the use of heavy duty beach chairs and beach cart. Traffic in the afternoon and evening is heavy but simply crossing the road and setting up on the beach makes that a limited issue. Great place!!

So glad you enjoyed your vacation. We hope to see you again next year!
When you walk-in, you feel like home! So comfy, and decorated perfectly. This is what I want when I get to hopefully retire to the area

Looks like we can host you at the beach house until you retire! Sweet! So glad your vacation was awesome.
Best Beach House!
The cutest beach house on the island. Woke up every morning with the ocean just footsteps from the front door. All the local stops were just a bike ride away. Can't wait to come back!

Beach cottage is quintessential old Florida charm. Perfect for a couple or a family of four who doesn’t mind togetherness. We really enjoyed our stay. Bruce was readily available to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend Seaview, and I would definitely stay again.

Perfect little piece of paradise
We love Anna Maria Island but we find it difficult to find a cottage that has a beach and Gulf view. Although Sea View Cottage is across the street from the beach, we found it to have the best views for what we were looking for. The cottage is just the perfect size and just so cozy. It has the old Florida charm with all of the amenities. We enjoyed the covered deck to watch the sunsets every night. Bruce was always quick to respond to any inquiries. We will definitely be back!!

Yes it is hard to beat our little slice of Paradise! So glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again soon! Bruce
I was in love with this place!! First it was so clean, the house is old but so well taken care off. I loved that I was in a house and not a condo. I was so close to the beach and the views are amazing. I really did not want to leave this paradise. The house had everything we needed plus more. I loved that there was a blue tooth speaker in the house. There was even a hair straighter and curling iron. My husband and I loved to sit in the deck especially in the rain. Can’t wait to go back!!!

What a fantastic place. This cottage had everything we needed and even things we didn’t know we needed. We enjoyed our vacation and plan on renting this cottage again. The view is incredible and the beach is perfect. We were able to maintain social distancing.

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your vacation at the Sea View beach house! Let me know when you are ready to return to paradise! Thanks! Bruce
My husband and I wanted a quaint place to spend our anniversary and we found it at the Sea View Cottage. We walked in and found everything exactly as shown in the photos! No surprises other than what a wonderful vacation cottage next to the clear blue Gulf waters we had chosen for 10 days! Don’t keep asking yourself “I wonder if the bed is comfy” because you will sleep peaceful and have a choice of different styles out 6 pillows to use! The Miracle Bamboo pillow is now my favorite and I will be buying one for myself! The seashell bottle shower is far more beautiful in person! All the amenities you need are there at Sea View! Just bring your food and drinks because everything else is there! I hope you enjoy the porch with the 2 person bar as much as my husband and I did. Coffee & adult beverages were very enjoyable with the perfect view of the ocean across the 2 lane street. Accessing the beach was very easy. The beach was never overcrowded on the section in front of Sea View! Oh and there are lots of shells! If you need extra noise as you sleep, bring in the fan from the storage building that also holds, chairs, canopy, umbrella and a wagon for easy use plus other helpful items. The outdoor shower was great to help keep the sand out of the cottage! There is a double & single kayak for use on the mostly calm gulf (until the storms moved in) or in the Bay that is just a short stroll down the street (behind the house). Thank you Bruce for the recommendations on best eats!I must recommend renting a boat because you will feel like you are totally in the tropics with sand bars and islands out on the Gulf in the surrounding area!All I can say is look no further than Sea View Cottage. You will find yourself in paradise both in the cottage and at the beach!There is a lot of traffic on the road, but we easily overlooked it because of the view, the ease of getting to the beach and for the lovely/comfortable cottage!Thanks for renting to us and letting us spend our anniversary in a place some only dream of! We will be back!

We are so happy you had the opportunity to spend your anniversary on the island. We look forward to seeing you again next year! Thanks! Bruce
This place is AMAZING! Couldn't have been more pleased. Exactly as pictured and described. Cozy, yet spacious with an open floorplan. Extra clean. Outstanding sea views from every room and located just steps from beautiful, white powder sand beaches! Very convenient to activities, shops & restaurants, either by foot or trolley. Never used/needed the car. Turnkey! Everything you might need or want is provided & then some -they really thought of everything. Corona shower is a must-see and alot of fun, pics don't do it justice. Mattress, pillows and furnishings very comfortable. Large outdoor porch with multiple lounging options for enjoying the beautiful beach view. Full kitchen was a bonus to be able to prepare a couple meals at the house and full-size washer and dryer great to have onsite too. Be sure to try out at least a couple of the recommendations for where to eat & drink locally! Really enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again.

locaation, location, locaation.
This home is located just across the street from the beach with unobstructed views. The sunsets from the porch were amazing. The only drawback being that traffic was noisy late at night and did back up during rush hour. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back someday.

This little house is so cozy and surprisingly spacious in the living area with the doors open to the porch. The porch is huge - we spent most of our time out there. Great for card games, crafts, and dining. It is very well equipped - truly turn key - kitchen, nice linens, games, fast internet and beach toys. There are so many windows you can see the ocean from every room. Oh, and the shower is amazing - don't know how you did that but we were impressed. I can't wait to come back!

What better sunsets can you have from the porch or living room window? None! This place is steps from the Gulf, steps from the Bay, and has everything you need to have a relaxing, intimate Florida beach trip. Thanks for the memories guys! This place is great! Comfortable bed, amenities at your fingertips, salty swims and fresh BBQ all within the comfort of a beachside cottage. I'm coming back and my family will have memories forever. Thanks again for keeping it real~ Dave

Our home away from home!
We've stayed here many times because we just love this house. The views are spectacular and this section of the beach is usually very quiet. Our most recent visit included swimming with manatees about 10' away from us and loads of birds to watch. The location is very convenient. We walked to Bridge Street several times during our stay and took the quick drive to Cortez a few times as well. Years ago, this was our first VRBO experience, and we were hooked! We can feel Old Florida charm in this home, so this is a lovely, romantic get away for us! The property manager, Bruce, is terrific to deal with.

25th anniversary getaway
We were told it was a great place and were not disappointed. Just the right size for 2 and very clean. Loved the fact it was just a walk across to the lovely golf beach and had the best spot for sunsets. A nice walk to Bridge Street for a variety of restaurants and an easy commute to Long Boat Key and Sarasota. We will most certainly be back.
