“Beautifully located on Pine Avenue”
Reviewed October 8, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Wow what an amazing place! Located on the canal so my husband can fish and I can sit and read my book on the screened porch is perfect,The whole outlook of this house is fantastic watching the bird life and mullet jumping out of the water.
It has good amenities throughout and didn't want for nothing.
5 mins from the gulf side beaches and 2 mins from the city pier. A trolley bus stop right outside which can take you all round the island. What more could you want!
We will be back sometime soon.

“Wish we were still there!”
Reviewed January 19, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

Starfish Dreams is a great vacation rental: comfortable, cheery, bright, great screened in porch overlooking the canal. Very pet friendly. And the rental agency, Costal Cottages is a joy to work with. No matter how minor a problem was, their friendly staff were immediately at the house to fix it, whether it was replacing a porch light or dealing with a ceiling fan. And they never made us feel we were putting them out. One block from the Bay and City Pier, two blocks from the Gulf. We are staying on the island for five months and would gladly have stayed at Starfish Dreams the entire time had it been available. The pool was kept spotless. Wish we were still there!

“fabulous view and perfect location”
Reviewed June 25, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Super location and gorgeous views of the canal and sunsets. Love the pool area and covered spot under the house.Great for paddle boards and kayak and fishing off the dock. We have rented Starfish Dreams for the past 4 Summers and do love it! Only negative is that in the 4 years we have not seen any upgrades or improvements made to the home. The AC seems weak and they need a new one but it is such a perfect setting that can't be beat. Already booked it for next year.

Liked best: the pool and view of canal
Liked least: ac never works well and we are always hot but are outside in the water so much it is worth it!

“May 2016”
Reviewed May 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary after being married on the island. PERFECT location. Close to the piers and a short walk/bike ride to beach. Shops and general store just steps away. Pool was amazing. Sliding doors to screened in patio make you feel like you're always right on the water. Couldn't ask for a better home and stay. Everything very clean and beautiful. We will be back for a week again next year!

“Perfect vacation home”
Reviewed December 29, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Our family had a great holiday in Starfish dreams. The location on Pine Avenue was great. It was 5 minutes walk to the beaches on the West and less to the pier on the East. Opposite the house was the general store, Beach bums bike rental shop and the free bus stop. The view from the deck over the canal and the dock was lovely, especially the bird life. The house had everything we needed for a family of 4 and the boys were impressed with the super speedy wifi that stretched right to the end of the dock! We would definitely stay here again.

“A little piece of paradise”

Stayed at the perfect Starfish Dreams house for a few days and it was so gorgeous we cannot fault it. The house is so pretty and equipped with everything you could want. Furnishings are fresh and fashionable, comfortable and clean. A well equipped kitchen, tables everywhere, in the dining area, veranda and downstairs BBQ area. The pool is small but perfect for cooling down and floating on airbeds in the sunshine. Gorgeous comfortable brightly coloured chairs on the patio were our favourite spot for an early morning cup of tea to watch the birds and jumping fish in the inlet water. The position could not be better as walking distance to the beach, pier, restaurants and general store. Anna Maria island is a beautiful place. We have visited other islands on the Gulf coast including Sanibel and Captiva, but Anna Maria Island is the best for us and we will certainly return to the Starfish Dreams house
