Cottages on the beach?


I am considering spending 2 - 4 nights on Anna Maria Island. Will be staying in the north Redington Beach area further north, and looking for a side trip here. Can anyone recommend a nice, reasonablly priced beachside cottage with a pool and kitchen(ette)? Nothing fancy, just fairly clean and comfortable.

Do most of the rental units require a full week stay?

Thanks in advance!

You didn't say how many people but google Umbrella Beach Resort, call or write them, and see if they will do less than a week and if they have openings for the days you need.

I know it seems like a small request but actually it will be hard to find what you are looking for unless you can give a little. Nice, reasonable, only 2-4 days stay, on the beach. Here are a few recommendations and comments

Bungalow Beach Resort - All that you want but a bit expensive

Bamboo Cottages - Everything but a pool

Angelino's Sea Lodge - no pool

Tradeswinds - everything but across the street from beach

Queens Gate Resort - Reasonable, nice pool area but across the street

Blue Dolphin Inn - Great place but a short walk down a path to the pool.

Sailfish Gulf Suites - One of my favorites but no pool.

Cedar Cove, cottage type feel but no pool.

White Sands - everything but probably have a minium stay of a week.

This will give you some things to check out - good luck!

Thanks RustyKat!! I need to stop wanting everything, or spend more money, LOL! I can probably do without the pool. If it's either / or, I would rather have the beach!! I will check out your suggestions, starting with Sailfish.

Thanks again!

Here's another to check:

The Anna Maria Island Beach Resort (877-632-3224) they advertise as having Key West Style Apartments, right on the beach, and with heated pool. They also have a website: www.annamariaislandbeachresort.com
