Anna Maria Beach Cottages
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We went to the cottages just for a 3 night stay in the middle of our 14 days vacation in Orlando.

We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children and we stayed in Cottage 107a.

We stayed in August 2013.

It had everything we needed. We loved the way it was decorated and how clean and fresh everything was.

Also the grounds were beautifully kept and clean.

The beach was literally a 5min walk away.

It was great that there were beach accessories for us to use as well, beach chairs, parasols etc.

The pool was just at our doorstep but we spent all our time down on the beach.

Staff were super friendly and they even let us use the cottage after our checkout time so we could have another few hours at the beach and then shower before heading back to Orlando.

We would definitely return here and use the cottages again.

The cottage was tiny for the price, the kitchen wasn't well stocked for cooking meals, the furniture was worse than imaginable. The living room furniture was made of denim, and made me feel like I was sitting on a pair of extremely dirty blue jeans...the bed in the master was a good size, but way too firm and painful. The staff was friendly, but all in all, wouldn't recommend for the price.

Room Tip: Don't go here

We were recently on Anna Maria Island for a family vacation and beach wedding. We stayed in the Cottages and truly enjoyed the family-friendly environment. It is not a fancy hotel, but very cozy and comfortable. It is very close to the beach. We would definitely return should we visit Anna Maria Island again.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom units are great. We stayed in 109 and it was very convenient.

Right on the beach, cleanly and comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Close to lots of good restaurants. A great place to stay and not break the bank. Has a small pool. Very family friendly and has a variety of room types available.

My family and I vacationed here in the summer of 2012 and had a great time. We loved the laid back feel of the place and it really reminded me of the vacations I went on as a kid with my family. That was what we were hoping for and this place captured that feel to a "T". With that said, my only complaint was the villas that had another villa above them were rather noisy. Being an older structure, simple footsteps on the 2nd story are amplified on the lower levels - especially at night! I was a bit stressed a couple of nights as I couldn't sleep from all the noise above us. Perhaps because it's such a stark contrast to the usual serenity you usually experience there. Overall, I give this place a great review because it's proximity to the beach, peaceful atmosphere, clean and well kept units and accommodating staff.

Room Tip: Avoid villas that have another unit above - can be noisy

We stayed here in early Jan as a winter getaway and to visit family in the area. It was just what we needed and the location steps away from the beach was perfect. I wanted to be able to just park the car, then walk, or bike wherever. We stayed in #107 and like other reviews the cottage was comfy and had all the amenities needed. The rooms were large and the 2 separate bathrooms were nice. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils,cookware, etc., which suited us since we did meals "in" mostly so we could enjoy family together time, then hit the beach and do it all over again. Pool looked great and the entire property is well kept. Laundry is on site which was convenient. Publix supermarket is close by which is how we stocked up for the week. The AMBC staff is great and attentive when needed. I was a bit surprised by the car traffic around Anna Maria, but I'm told it's one of the few FL barrier islands you can drive on without having to pay to get on. Also it's just really populated in the Tampa metro area. There's a bit of housing construction going on around the property (good for economy) but slight noise may bother some--it should be done in a few months, then quiet laid back will be the norm. I highly recommend AMBC and will surely return in the future.

Room Tip: We chose 107 based on web photos and screened porch. A family member (local) said other cottage was...

Excellent location minutes to the beach. Cottages are a little dated, not many upgrades year to year. We had been renting for several years, and the same plastic cups and kitchen items were the same from year to year. THere was no dishwasher ever, so that's a little gross. Bed in our cottage was horrendous! You can hear your neighbors sneeze in the next cottage, walls are paper thin. Not great if you are looking for a peaceful, stress free beach vacation.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, we appreciate all feedback. Please be assured in December all of our kitchens got a brand new stock of inventory from the forks to the plates and pots and pans. We do our very best to maintain and upgrade the cottages whenever we can and have replaced many mattress and sofas recently (In fact a new sofa was just ordered today). There is always a staff member on property to express your feelings to and we sure wish we would have found out about an uncomfortable mattress right away, because we use a local mattress company and would have been happy to resolve the issue immediately. As far as noisy kids, we are a family friendly facility and if there are ever children that are out of control we do speak with the parents, we rarely ever have an issue with children being excessively loud. You are correct, not all Cottages have a dishwasher but we do supply Dawn dish soap, wash cloths and sponges to our guests to wash dishes properly. I am sorry you feel our property is not quiet, we are 100% occupied right now and the windows are open and I can assure you it is very peaceful, I can only hear the fountain running.
