Loving Lagos! – Fab self contained apartment. Great rooftop views. Lovely little terrace.
Tranquilidade – Excelente opção para quem quer a tranquilidade de um lugar junto de praias fantásticas.
Translation: Tranquillity – Excellent option for those who want the tranquillity of a place next to fantastic beaches.
Great location for adults – This property is located less than a block to the beach. The pool has a water feature that covers the street noise. The home is very small and well appointed. It had everything we needed. We met the adult guests in the adjacent unit that were a pleasure to meet. Due to the small property, I would recommend this property for adults only.
Una Maravillosa sorpresa – La casa más tranquila y acogedora que hemos alquilado nunca. Muy cerca de las mejores playas para surf y sin embargo con la paz de una aldea solitaria.
Translation: The most peaceful and cosy house we have ever rented. Very close to the best beaches for surfing and without embargo with the peace of a lonely village
In the heart of Lagos – The apartment is ideally located, the beaches are within walking distance, as well as the old town with the restaurants. The apartment has charm and is well ventilated and is pleasant, even if it is under the roof. The environment is noisy, but we knew that beforehand.
Anniversary joy – We stayed at this beautiful little cottage for our anniversary. It was perfect. The pool area is very relaxing and beautifully done. The house is perfect for 2 people and the kitchen is well stocked. The house is very close to the beach. We had never been to Anna Maria Island and we discovered it is a beautiful place to go to. Would definitely come back to this lovely cottage! Sharon was wonderful to deal with and gave us instructions for check in even when it was later in the evening!
Wonderful week – My husband and I had a marvellous week at Shell Cottage. We had a change of plans and Liane (Bookings Manager) was absolutely wonderful in working with us to make it work out. The unit is very small but very clean and comfortable. Perfect for two. We will definitely be back!
Cute cottage near the beach and easy walk to Pine Street – My wife and I needed a one-bedroom place north of Pine Street to be close to our daughter’s place. This was perfect, cosy, neat and clean. Shared pool was great. Nice pool furniture, landscape and pool deck. Small kitchen and bathroom worked for the two of us.
Perfect location – We had a lovely stay. The first morning, I looked out at the ocean while sipping my coffee and saw a dolphin swimming by. That dolphin siting set the tone for the entire week. They provide beach gear like beach towels, skim boards, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas and much more. I was entertained by the myriad of gulls, terns, and sandpipers that endlessly traverse the beach. It was also fun to watch the colorful parasailers float by each day. We couldn’t resist and tried it ourselves and had a blast. We took many long walks on the endless beach. We rented beach bikes for the week and that got us around the island and beyond. We had top notch icecream and tasty grouper on a daily basis from the many options on the island. We took a Segway tour on the second day of our stay which was super fun and helped us get the lay of the land. When we return, we will be sure to pack shampoo and soap (the soap was very small bars that dissolved within a couple days of use since we wash our hands very frequently, but it’s super easy to throw a bar of soap into the suitcase for our next visit to this rental). I’d stay at this house again in a heartbeat. We had a lovely time. I highly recommend this rental.
Amazing time – Our stay at this accommodation was really nice! Everything was provided in the kitchen and worked instantly. Even if the electricity in one room did not work properly, the agency sent someone to check super quick and fixed it! In total, our stay was great and we had an amazing time!
Fun, fun, fun! – Gorgeous property, perfectly laid out and decorated! Fantastic location close to restaurants but in a quiet neighborhood. Can’t ask for anything else!
Pleasant Holiday – The cottage was quaint. Old Florida style that we love. Spacious enough for two. Clean and airy. Excellent location. 2 minute walk to beautiful Anna Maria beach. Walking distance to restaurants, parks and Anna Maria and Rod-n-Reel piers. We will be back!
Welcomed like family! – Stayed at Seahorse Cottage in November, 2022. This was my 5th time at ‘The Cottages’. Had a wonderful time. Appreciate the improvements made. Already planning my next visit. Liane, Sharon and Julie always welcome me back like family. Saw a show at Island Players this time. Such fun. Wouldn’t stay anywhere else.
Great house in a fantastic quiet location! – Wonderful house with a very nice garden! Located in a valley away from the tourist spots of the southern Algarve. Travel time to the nearest beach 12 minutes … but really in a quiet location with no night light which allows a fantastic view of the starry sky! The house is well equipped and finally has 4 rooms, each with a double bed, one room being an alcove into another room…and then another room with two single beds. Very nice living area! Great opportunities to sit outside! We were completely satisfied with two families! Great house!
Thoroughly cute property – Lovely pool area, quiet neighbourhood and only 4-5 houses from the beach. Sharon and Liane were super easy to work with and kept me well informed about the property post-Hurricane Ian. It was a nice little escape for a week. Location, location, location!
A Perfect Getaway – The house is just as lovely as pictured and it is right on the beach. The wrap-around porch has a roof which was perfect on the two rainy days of our vacation. We were still able to sit or lounge outside and read or dine while watching and hearing the ocean. On lovely days we were just steps from the beach. We loved the shower and faucet on the lower deck for cleanup after a sand beach visit. There are lots of fine restaurants close by. You can drive your own car, ride the trolley or rent a golf cart. It was a wonderful vacation and we would truly come back to this little hidden gem.
Perfect location – The cottage was the perfect size and set-up for us. Location was great- steps away from the beach. The pool was refreshing. Highly recommend The Donut Experiment which was only a few blocks away. And last but not least- we got to see a few loggerhead hatchlings and helped one to the ocean with the Sea Turtle Patrol
Great Stay – The Seahorse Cottage is just as advertised – clean, cute, great pool and close to the beach. The owner/property manager made everything extremely easy. We will be back!
Super nice house! Clean, comfy and well stocked. Loved the sunsets and the lightning shows from the deck!
Week family vacation – Great property and great communication with staff. Great location and all of the amenities a family needs.
Views to die for – We came in 2017 (hurricane time) and vowed to return. Amazing home with a view to die for.
Amazing views and the locals are awesome. Loved every minute.
Celebrated our 20th anniversary. Fifth time to AMI – LOVE IT! Starfish Cottage was the perfect getaway. Thank you.
Unbeatable location – If you are looking for tranquillity and escape from the heat, and great for visiting beaches in the west and south of the Algarve, away from the most touristic sites. Highly recommended!
Translation: Ubicación inmejorable si buscas tranquilidad y huir del calor, y genial para visitar playas del oeste y sur del Algarve, alejado de los sitios más turísticos. Muy recomendable!
Wonderful experience. Will always remember. The desk was everyone’s favourite. Warm and welcoming home for our family time.
Starfish was great! – Perfect vacation for our family. Very short walk to the beach which made it so nice not worrying about finding beach access parking. We will definitely stay here again!
That quaint feel – This property is on a nice quiet court, and it’s a quick walk to the beach. The beach access is ideal, and still has that quaint feel to it.
It was perfect! – My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Shell Cottage! It was a perfect size for us and we loved the close proximity to restaurants and the beach. Even though we had a car, we chose to walk everywhere. The pool and patio area were very nice too! We had everything we needed and would definitely stay here again.
Perfect for our family – This house fitted our family of six perfectly. Great location on the island, beach out our back door, and you can’t beat the view. Looking forward to coming back again!
Perfect again – This was our second stay at Seabreeze. It was just as perfect as our previous stay. Cottage was clean and well stocked. Hopefully you never have to contact Sharon, but if you do, just know she is amazing to work with. Beach is close and not too crowded. Can’t wait to return again.
Perfect Location – This house was perfectly located just steps from the shoreline, and the pool was a great addition to our stay. Being able to walk to catch the free trolleybus made our stay so easy. We’ll be back.
Love the view – This is by far the best west coast get-away. Love the view and sounds of the waves, birds, dolphins, manatees. Love the sunsets and Anna Maria.
We absolutely loved the view, extensive ocean front window sliders and beachfront porch for watching sunsets …
What a beautiful view! – Thanks for such a well-stocked kitchen! The beds were comfy and all furniture was as pictured. Really, we spent most of our time on the beach and deck. Thanks for the wagon – it really helped getting our beach chairs to the beach. We want to come back soon.
Nice Little Place for a short get away to the beach … for just 2 of us was perfect.
Great location with a short walk to the beach. Just enough room for my group of 6.
AMAZING – We had the best time! The location was absolutely PERFECT! We had a few small kiddos with us and found it very kid friendly. We had everything we needed for the beach and there were even lots of beach toys for the kids! Will definitely be staying here again.
Great experience – perfect place -Everything was great! We had an amazing time at the property.
THE COTTAGES ARE THE BEST! This has been my 4th time staying at ‘The Cottages’. Stayed in Seahorse again, and it was as great as my first visit. There is no place on AMI that compares with this rental. The kitchen has everything you would need for a vacation. The bedroom is comfortable with plenty of closet space. The living room is also comfortable with TV, internet and even prime channels. Liane, Sharon and Julie are the most helpful and pleasant people to work with. I can’t wait to return.
Had a wonderful time. Have been to AMI many times. Love this place.
Five times at Seahorse! Another great vacation. So comfortable. Went to some old favourites and some for the first time.
So relaxing – Our second visit has come to an end. We love it here. So relaxing. The Porch is a must to eat out. Rent bikes! So much fun to ride around the island. The cottage is awesome.
Perfect Getaway – Wonderful location, just steps to the beach. Owners left a lovely welcome basket. So nice to sit out on the deck with our morning coffee. Quiet neighbourhood but convenient to everything. Hope to be returning.
Perfect place in perfect location for perfect vacation – Having never been to Anna Maria Island, we chose the Starfish Cottage because it looked like the right size for a family of 3 in a good location with a pool. As soon as we arrived, we knew we made the right choice. The 2-bedroom cottage was much bigger than we thought and was spotless upon arrival. The pool is very private which we really enjoyed. The best part was the location. We walked everywhere. The beach is only a few hundred yards down from the cottage and it was a perfect beach on Bean’s Point. Walking to Pine Ave, the city pier and the Rod and Reel pier was so nice. This was the perfect place for us for a perfect vacation. Thank you!
Beautiful and relaxing. LOVED the Starfish Cottage! LOVED the pool and peacefulness of that end of the island!!! LOVED being close to some of the shops and restaurants that we could walk to! Thank you.
6th time at Seahorse! – We love our time here. such a great pool and beach. Love riding around the island on bikes.
Great location – This cottage was perfect for my husband and I. It was well equipped, clean, and comfortable. The proximity to the beach could not be better (considering the price). We were able to easily walk to the beach and back to the cottage for drinks, snacks, etc. Parking on the island is difficult, not having to pack up to go to the beach was the best. I would stay here again and I would recommend Seahorse Cottage to others. It was also an easy walk to Pine Street for shops and restaurants.
Adorable cottage with pool. Close to the beach. Pool water is heated and nice beach chairs and towels provided. We will Definitely be back!
Thank you so much! – A hidden gem we were lucky enough to find for our honeymoon.
Another great stay on AMI. We love Starfish Cottage.
Anna Maria Island – Sweet, sunny cottage near the tip of Anna Maria within walking to village and Bean point. The beach at the end of our little street was glorious and not busy. Walked for miles on the beach. Rent bikes to see the island!
Love this place! Temperature was great all week. Will definitely come back. Call Ed at Spice Sailing Charters for sailing cruise!!
2nd visit to the cottages. Had a girls’ trip this time and it was great. Coming back next May!
Great location – Highly recommend house and location!
Seahorse Cottage – We loved our stay at Seahorse Cottage. The property is cute, comfortable and clean and close to the beach and a nice walk to yummy restaurants and darling shops. The pool area is secluded and lovely. We hope to stay again soon!
Love this property – Definitely a “wow!” Much bigger than pictures show. The pool is great and the cottage is easily within walking distance to the beach. Everything was clean and beautifully decorated. We are looking forward to staying here again.
Quaint and cosy cottage near the beach! – This cottage was the perfect getaway for us! It is a 3-minute walk to the beach and a 7-minute walk to the main street with restaurants, shops, and the free trolley. 10/10 would recommend this to anyone.
Great Vacation – Love AMI!
Great cottage – Beautiful location and minutes from the beach. Everything was there that we needed for our family get away! Friendly managers and prompt with answering our questions.
Perfect Location for Stay – Location was excellent! Location was perfect for our stay on the island this trip!
Excellent location near beach and town centre – Convenient trolley service. Best restaurants – Waterfront, The Porch, The Chateau. Friendly island with excellent service. Gorgeous beach and sunsets.
Location and charm – Just LOVED Starfish cottage! I’ve been to AMI many times, but my first time at this rental. The cottage is bigger than you sense from the photos, and very bright with a lot of light: big windows, sliding doors. It’s clean and well cared for. The pool area is welcoming and a very nice heated pool (no problem swimming on our chilly day this week, in the 60s.) The location is truly great! 4 houses to the beach and a 3-5 minute walk to Pine Street with great food spots and boutique stores. Will definitely stay again!
All we needed – The property was clean and had everything we needed. Would recommend this property to family and friends. Steps away from the beach and easy walking/biking to shopping and restaurants.
Loved the cottage – Perfect for a couple’s getaway. Very close to beach and nice heated pool.
Quintessential beach cottage – Great location and wonderful deck. We loved it!
Another great stay at the cottages – Second stay at the cottages. Stayed in Starfish this time. The cottage was so comfortable. Clean and had everything you could possibly need for a beach vacation. Sharon and Liane (Idyllic staff) are a pleasure to work with. New find this trip was Robinson Preserve. Recommend Googling it and visiting it. Already planning my next visit and would only stay at “the cottages”!
Property was perfect. Weather was perfect. It was a great family vacation for us.
We had a fantastic stay! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and close proximity to the beach. We were here to enjoy a family reunion on Anna Maria Island after 20 years. It was amazing.
The Beach House is amazing! – Location is perfect, house is adorable and comfortable. Such a wonderful stay at The Beach House. Mattresses were replaced and the beds are very comfy. I saw some earlier reviews about that. Sharon, the property manager, answered my calls right away and she was lovely and helpful. We hope to be back.
So relaxing – I loved this property the first two times I stayed. This time was no disappointment. I still love it . The smaller space was perfect for two friends and the neighbours we shared the pool with were very nice. Our stay was as relaxing as I had hoped it would be. Thank you!
So close to the beach – Place was very clean and quite suitable for the two of us. Kitchen was well equipped with most anything one would need. Short walk to the beach and easy access. Sharon was quick to respond to any questions. Would stay again.
Wonderful! – Our stay in Anna Maria was wonderful. I was very happy with the house and the location. We stay here frequently and this would be a home we would return to. The location worked great because we were a minute from the beach and from shopping. The property managers were easy to work with and our stay was comfortable.
Excellent! – The property exceeded my expectations. Super comfortable and close to the beach (50 metres), very well equipped with everything you need. In a short time I will return with my family there.
Perfect location – Short walk to the beach, short drive to shopping / food. Definitely would return and stay again.
Really nice cottage – Just a perfect place. steps to the beach and a very nice pool.
Amazing home on the beach! – What a beautiful experience we had at the Beach House. This home is just 20 short steps from the sand and a few more to the water. The wooden deck was my favourite part and cooking as I watched the ocean. The house is a little outdated but in an eccentric sort of way that feels like you’re part of a novel … The beach chairs and some pots need a refresher. But the view, privacy, location and huge deck are worth it. I would stay again. The memories we made at Anna Maria, even with Red tide (which is not fun), are still priceless
Relaxing Trip – What a comfy get away for 2 sixtyish adults who hadn’t been anywhere in a couple of years!
Awesome – Great experience. Beautiful place to stay. Loved the pool and the short walk to the beach. Dinner at Harry’s (also an easy walk) was the best dining we had on the island. Breakfast at My AMI (another easy walk) is also highly recommended. Communication with hosts, check-in, and support was excellent.
Great stay at Anna Maria Island – Loved the place we stayed at. It was very clean and very close to the beach. This was the very first time I have used VRBO and, because of this experience, I will use this system again. Was very happy over all.
We’ve booked again! – Great location to the beach and happy that there was a pool for the kids! Had a wonderful time and already booked for next year!
Starfish Cottage Enjoyment – Great location, less than 5 minute walk to water’s edge. Quiet street two blocks from the Anna Maria Main Street. Beach is great and quiet, no one close to you. Cottage has nice layout and roomy. Master is nice size room with king bed that slept great for us. Master bath with large shower. Girls had own room and bathroom. Large kitchen table. All appliances worked and indoor temp nice and cool. Pool and patio is very nice and clean! Pool is common area. Ate at 5 different local restaurants in 5 days. The town caters to visitors. Rental golf carts everywhere. Watched sunset from beach every night and really enjoyed every aspect of our stay. Us in mid 50’s and two 17 y/o girls. Take advantage of all the water sports!
Perfect Vacation – I went with my daughter for vacation before she starts college in the fall. We had a great time. Enjoyed the beach and the water and our place, ‘The Beachcomber’. Sharon [Idyllic Holiday Properties’ USA rentals manager] was very responsive to any questions we had.
Beach location perfection – Great little place with perfect access to the beach!
Beach So Close! – Just steps from the beach. Quiet street with no traffic. Cosy condo that fit our family of 5 perfectly.
Great cottage close to the beach – Cute cottage located very short distance from the beach. Nice pool and great location near shops and eateries. Would definitely stay again.
Awesome location, close to the beach
We love your island – Great food, wonderful walks and beautiful sunsets.
Another great holiday – Thank you very much. We had a wonderful time – once again – at Vilarinha, and Casa do Medronho especially. It’s a special place and I will return at some point, for sure.
Fantastic family retreat – Great place to stay for a family. Well equipped kitchen. Open family/kitchen area for gathering. Spectacular elevated deck overlooking the beach. Outside shower to rinse off when returning from the beach. We made wonderful memories during our 9-night stay.
We rented 2 bikes and rode the length of the island. Very cool. We loved the beach, waterfront restaurants, Ugly Grouper Restaurant and the Sandbar restaurant.
Perfect beach spot – Shell Cottage is perfect for two. The beach at the end of the street is practically private. No crowds. The pool is delightful. The free trolley bus a few blocks away is so convenient. And Liane, Sharon and Julie are totally professional and helpful. I will definitely be back!
Great spot! – We loved our stay in beautiful AMI. The short walk to the beach was the best!
We had a super week! Great beaches, good weather and very nice and comfortable Vilarinha accommodation. We will certainly repeat these vacations!
Beautiful house, spectacular deck – We loved the house and spent our days on the deck enjoying the beautiful weather and amazing views.
Quiet and Simple – My partner and I had an excellent stay at the Seahorse Cottage. The beach is 100 yards away and is far enough north that there are always spots available at any time of day. The pool was excellent for when you needed a change of pace. Hopefully we will be able to get back soon!
Perfect, clean and comfy! This property had a perfect location with a short walk to the beach! It was also incredibly clean! Our group had one person sleeping on the pull out sofa and it was a very good mattress for a sofa bed! My only surprise was that it didn’t have a full oven. The toaster oven made d0, but we couldn’t bake a frozen pizza for the kids. The parking area under the unit was great to have your car in the shade. I would stay here again!
My husband and I stayed at Seahorse Cottage. We really enjoyed the property and the location – just 200ft from the gorgeous gulf side beach – can’t be beat. It’s an easy walk to the Sandbar for a sunset cocktail or lunch or dinner. Easy walk to Pine Ave for shopping or dining as well and only 10-or-so minute walk to Rod and Reel Pier. We barely used our car all week. The cottage was comfortable and had all the necessities. It’s not luxurious but I didn’t pay luxury prices either. It had everything we needed and everything worked well. The pool was really nice (shared with two other cottages), clean and plenty of places to lounge or sit to eat. Beach gear may or may not be in the garage, but we rented 2 chairs and a really good umbrella for the week (it was windy! You need a quality umbrella!). Communication with management, both local and in the UK, was very quick and thorough. We’d definitely stay here again!
Better than advertised! – The location was perfect. The condo is spacious. The pool is great. The location to the beach was easy! So nice. Only request would be to provide a broom to sweep up sand tracked in by the kids.
Met our expectations – Everything was as promised. No issues. Property was very clean. Got back the security deposit quickly.
The location! – Beach on your backyard, views from the balcony, gorgeous sunsets and laid back Anna Maria vibe made for a memorable family getaway.
Great location! Very short walk to a beautiful beach. Also short walk to many restaurants and trolley bus stop. Pool was a great addition. Very spacious with many pool chairs. Would definitely stay again.
True Old Florida Charm – Anna Maria is widely considered as one of the few remaining places in Florida where one can still experience the Old Florida charm. Well, this condo is perfect for that. It’s far from brand new, but everything works. It’s extremely cute and private, and has this authentic and relaxing Old Florida vibe to it. Three houses away from the path to the beach on a quiet dead-end street. The guest book is filled with rave reviews from past visitors from all over the world. Being on stilts, the condo offers living entirely on the second floor, away from pedestrian gazes, and we really enjoyed that, especially when relaxing and eating on the open deck. We also enjoyed private laundry, grill, and very competitive rates for a place so close to the beach. Would come back without hesitation!
It was perfect!!! Very relaxing and close to water, shopping and eating. We loved it. We are planning to go back every year.
So close to the beach – We had a great week at this cottage. It is so close to a quiet beach. The pool was warm on cool evenings. We ate dinner on the patio every evening. We hope to stay here again.
Just book it! – Property exactly as described. On a quiet street with beach access. Don’t hesitate to book!
We’ll be back – We had an enjoyable stay at The Beach House and hope to return again!
Comfort highlighted – Comfortable and spacious property with raised deck.
Handy For Everything – We had a great stay for our moms getaway! What we loved most was the location. We could walk to everything: beach, shopping, restaurants, market etc. We will be back!
Perfect Spot – Great location right next to the beautiful beach and restaurants. Very quiet, very quaint!
Great Sunset View – This house is the perfect location for a winter getaway. It is right on the beach, the sunsets can be watched from the porch and the beach is quiet. We loved watching the dolphins. We had a lot of fun on Anna Maria. We look forward to returning.
Looking Forward To Next Visit – We had a wonderful trip and hope to be able to return someday!
Birdwatcher’s Delight – Shell Cottage is one of three cottages sharing a heated pool and lovely backyard. It would be ideal for a larger group who wants to vacation together but have their own space. There is a lovely hammock in one corner under palm trees that is not shown in the pictures. You are a mere two minutes walk from the beach and six minutes from Pine Street restaurants and shops. As an added bonus, we had a view of an osprey nest and got to watch the birds fly in and out…
Perfect Break – Everything went very well and we enjoyed our stay very much.
Beautiful Beach House Offering Stunning Views of The Ocean – Communication with owner helped set expectations, very nice to work with. This house has everything we wanted, privacy, privacy, privacy, and a stunning view of the water. The beach-facing glass doors across the house ensure you can see the water from in the house, but we spent most of our time on the deck. Due to Covid, we took all our dinners as takeout, we cooked brunches at home, but every meal was at the deck table, watching the ocean … Overall we would absolutely rent again, you can’t beat that view… we got just what we needed, a beautiful private place to watch the sunset! We hope to make it a yearly trip!
We Had A Wonderful Time At the Beach House – We really enjoyed our stay, as usual! Is it possible to provisionally reserve it for Thanksgiving week next year? We hope to return.
This Property Has A Magical Location – The porch has an incredible view of the beach and sea. We watched the gorgeous sunsets every night! The house was fully equipped and we had a great time together! One suggestion would be to upgrade the mattresses. Looking forward to booking with you again.
We Very Much Enjoyed Our Stay – The house was the perfect size for a family of four. The pool is great, very nice and sheltered so when it is windy elsewhere it is still warm by the pool and it is heated. The location of this house is great, walking distance to shops and restaurants and close to the beach which is beautiful. The master bed is a little on the softer side and the master bathroom is a little small/crowded with the way the door opens. Washer and dryer were great to have, as well as the dishwasher. We did not use the grill, which was charcoal. Beach chairs are provided which we used a lot. Thanks for the great stay!
Cute Cottage And Excellent Location – The location of the property was wonderful. Very short walk to the beach and easily walkable to main Pine Street. The cottage was cute and we loved having the pool. It was the perfect size for our small family of three. Everything was exactly as expected from the pictures and description. Would definitely stay here again.
Perfect Vacation – This cottage is exactly as described and is a perfect getaway from the crowded beach scene that some parts of this area are known for. The location is ideal with a quick 2-minute walk to the beach. The part of the beach that this location grants access to is clean with lots of space to stretch out. The property is perfectly maintained, the pool was very clean, and the air conditioning worked well. The property managers were very responsive and excellent to deal with – the most responsive I have interacted with through VRBO so far. Overall this was a very memorable vacation and this cabin was certainly central to the experience.
A Great Escape – This is exactly what we needed during these times! Beautiful place and easy walk to the beach! Thank you!
Island Fans – 5th trip to AMI. We love it here.
Back Again – Great to be back here for third time.
A Terrific Holiday! We enjoyed it very much.
Top Tips – Make sure to walk to Bean Point and try the tequila and lime oysters at Oyster Bar.
The Best Place – We had a wonderful time during our stay at Starfish cottage!! Both the cottage and AMI are the best.
Perfect Location – We really enjoyed our stay at Shell Cottage. The location was perfect. Communication with management was easy. We enjoyed relaxing in the pool. The refrigerator was small but it worked out ok since there was only 2 of us. The cottage was just right for what we needed during our stay. I would definitely stay at Shell Cottage again.
What A Gem – Staying away from Covid-19. This place was just what we needed to get away and relax. Location near perfect and the cottage had everything we needed. Thanks for sharing this gem with us. We will be back.
Great Vacation Cottage!! The cottage was clean and perfect for our little family get away! Short walk to the beach and plenty of room on the beach for social distancing. We had an issue with the air conditioner one night and Sharon did a great job in getting someone out to check it out that night. We had a great time and will definitely be back!!!
Festive Break – Wonderful holiday over Christmas and New Year. Hope to return.
Perfect Location! Cosy cottage just a short walk to the beach and island shops and restaurants. It was just like the photos and description on the website. It did not disappoint. Only wish it had a TV in the bedroom, but otherwise it was just what we were looking for!
Had an amazing trip to AMI! We enjoyed your beautiful cottage. Everything was perfect! The kids loved the heated pool and the location was perfect for the beach!
So pleased with Starfish Cottage. Clean, light and airy. Pool area is awesome and beach spectacular. Thank you!
Our Perfect Beach Escape – The cottage was all we had hoped it would be. The pool was amazing. So nice to come out of your room right into a beautifully set pool. The walk to beach is very short. The beach is almost secluded. Just like a fairy tale island getaway!
Great Place – What a great place! We will be back!
Many happy returns! – The perfect little cottage and a great location! We will be returning next year for our 4th visit.
Home From Home – Came in the day, Tropical Storm Emily made landfall right here! Very rare happening, but it blew through so fast that we only saw the aftermath. Great little cottage and has everything we needed for our week. Location is great, we’re so glad it was available, so thanks for our little home away from home – Cheers
Relaxing Time – Had a fantastic two weeks here on AMI – first time here in Shell Cottage and we had a very relaxing time.
A Wonderful Relaxing Break. The perfect place to not feel guilty about, kicking back and doing nothing at all!
Obrigada! Great location. We missed nothing and felt very comfortable.
Great Surfing – We definitely enjoyed our time here and will come back! Loved the house and had great time surfing!
Amazing Holiday – Lovely place to sit by the pool and relax. As always the beach and the sunset were beautiful! Had an amazing holiday – can’t wait to hopefully return soon
Beautiful – Fantastic and beautiful place to stay and enjoy the peace and nature.
Lovely House – Your beach house was perfect for our family. It’s so well kept and was spotlessly clean. Despite the relentless winds, our grandchildren loved the full waters and enjoyed playing the indoor games too. Thank you for the use of your lovely house.
Really Idyllic Holiday – Enjoyed the beach in the cool mornings and evenings. We rented a beach tent at Beach Bums which was great! We can’t wait to return. Really Idyllic Holidays, lovely!!
Incredible Island – We loved our stay at the Starfish Cottage just as much as we enjoyed our first trip to AMI. What an incredible island. We enjoyed wonderful days on the beach & at the pool. We will be back!
A wonderful holiday in a very nice house! We will gladly come again.
Love In The Air – Enjoyed the cottage and this trip will never be forgotten. We’re engaged!!!
Perfect Getaway – The cottage is nicer than it looks in the images. It’s very sweet and simple. It’s a two-minute walk onto my favourite beach in the world, and close enough to walk (or bike: easy to rent) to stores, restaurants and coffee in the morning. The pool area is very private (from public/but shared with other renters in the compound). I didn’t get to use the pool area due to weather. When I had an issue, the property manager and owner were very attentive, kind and ready to problem solve. Which I appreciated. It was a perfect spot to relax on AMI by myself.
Seashore Interlude – There were three adults and one teen in our family group. All of us had a great time – beach very near and traffic very light since 79th is a “no parking” one-way street. It was very peaceful and serene. We found a terrific seafood store/restaurant in Cortez that provided all the seafood we could eat. This was a wonderful vacation spot
Perfect for two – Clean, super CLOSE to beach, beautiful pool, well kept, adorable, great communication! Absolutely loved it! Will return!!!
Happy New Year! I loved Seahorse Cottage. Pool area very relaxing. Beautiful beach. Enjoyed biking around the Island. Lovely time.
Third Time Here. That says it all! We will be back!
This Was A Wonderful Rental – Nicely decorated, great location. The spa/pool was used every day. We walked the beach every day and also appreciated the use of beach chairs and towels. Our weather was perfect 70s every day. Enjoyed nightly sunsets at the beach. We hope to come back.
Very High Standard – It is a lovely little cottage of a very high standard and the location is perfect. We will definitely consider returning sometime soon. Thank you for helping us towards a fantastic holiday!
Paradise – A wonderful few days in paradise after the craziness of Orlando. A beautiful, well stocked home and so close to a perfect stretch of beach.
Perfect For Sharing – We enjoyed our stay very much. Having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms was perfect for 4 senior ladies!. Our location was perfect as I love being close to Ana Maria Island, and the ocean was really a very short walk from the condo. Everything that we needed was close by. I would do it again.
Enjoy The Silence – We had a nice stay in this lovely house! Everything worked fine for us a group. Good waves!! A place to enjoy the silence after a good surf.
Real Rest – We loved our stay in Vilarinha and the house is great! Everything was impeccable and with lots of equipment. We will get back there again for sure, because we totally forgot our routines in that place, and had a real rest and peace that we were in so much in need of!
Close To Nature – This house is magical, home away from home, and close to nature and the hills. Love it!
Tranquillity – Casa do Medronho in Vilarinha will stay in our hearts. Fantastic location and tranquillity for holidays. We’ll be back!
Just Perfect – Morning and evening beach walks, spotted lots of manatees. Cottage very comfortable and really well located. Pool is great. We will be coming back to AMI again, it’s just perfect.
So Comfortable – We really enjoyed staying in Casa Verde! The village and the valley are very beautiful, and the house was great! It’s so well – equipped and comfortable – I’m quite sure we will visit Vilarinha once again.
Best House On The Island! Enjoyed good weather – spent many hours chilling on the deck. Not our first visit and hopefully not our last! Back to Blighty today and the BIG CHILL.
Clean And Well Stocked – We enjoyed our stay at Casa Verde very much. Nice house, well stocked with inventory and it was very, very clean.
Holiday vacation at Starfish Cottage – My family enjoyed our holiday celebration vacation at the Starfish Cottage. We enjoyed the wonderful location on Anna Maria, the comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and the beautiful patio with heated pool. We were happy to be near many shops to pick up donuts and to get breakfast. The cottage is great for enjoying family dinners and it was so nice that the host supplied some water, snacks and a bottle of wine. We truly felt fortunate to find this wonderful spot and hope to return soon.
Reasons to book! We had a great time here, the top 3 reasons we stayed at the Sea Horse Cottage are: convenient/close beach access, close to Pine Ave shopping/restaurants and we loved the cottage.
Perfect for walkers – The house is beautifully situated in a small valley. The rooms are nicely furnished and mostly well equipped. Good starting point for excursions and hikes.
