The space
This Anna Maria Island rental was given the name Sweet Retreat Cottage for a reason. Offering a private heated pool, views of the Gulf, and beach access nearby, it won't take long to discover for yourself why this house is so spectacular!

Located a block from the beach on the north end of the island, you'll find easy fishing on both Anna Maria Island Pier and Reel Pier. The Gulf of Mexico is just across the street with its powdered sugar soft sands. And after a day of beachcombing, you can treat yourself with a double-size brownie from the Island General Store on Pine Ave.

Of course, you don't even have to leave this rental to find paradise. Lounge on the patio, swim in the heated pool year-round, grill up some fresh-caught fish on the gas grill, and whip up family meals in the fully equipped kitchen. Free WiFi and a flatscreen TV provide entertainment during off-hours, while a spacious tub in the guest bathroom may be just what the doctor ordered. Feel free to pack light, as a private washer/dryer lets you freshen up laundry. You'll also have two parking spots for your very own.

Your vacation to Anna Maria Island is sure to be special when you stay in this charming cottage - book today!
