“Great location --- comfortable old fashioned cottage”
Reviewed March 24, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This rental is as advertised - nothing fancy, but comfortable and cozy. It reminded us of the old style lake cottages we've visited in Northern Wisconsin. It's furnished with everything you need. We stayed for 2 weeks. The bikes were great to use for getting around the island as well as the trolley and good old fashioned walking. It's located on a quiet residential street, just 4 blocks from a beautiful beach. Owners Joel and Marga were there for part of our stay and were very helpful in giving many suggestions of places to eat and things to do on AMI and nearby. We took them up on their recommendation to see the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota --- awesome and absolutely breathtaking. The only upgrade we'd suggest is a gas grill (our personal preference) rather than a charcoal one. If you want a quiet and relaxing place to stay, this is it.

“Great Island cottage, very close to beach with everything you need.”
Reviewed November 13, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

person found this review helpful

Songbird Cottage is an clean and very comfortable family bungalow style home with all the things you need to make your stay on the Island enjoyable. It is walking distance to many nice restaurants, a free Trolley that can takes you up and down the Island and a beach a block away that has beautiful blue ocean water and soft white sand. Great for walking in the am. The sunset is spectacular. It is a great place to get away to read, walk, and enjoy the beach. A true vacation in the sun. PS Joel is excellent to rent from. Very customer conscious. A pleasure to be able to stay in his cottage.

“A great week at the beach!”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

people found this review helpful

This unit was a perfect fit for us. It was a very comfortable cottage to spend our week's vacation in. The kitchen was well equipped and the furnishings were very comfortable. We were only 4 short blocks from the beach, which is where we spent most of our time. We enjoyed the local restaurants. We made good use of your bicycles and the beech items that were available. Thank you

“Excellent!”
Reviewed May 5, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I felt right at home! Joel has thought of everything you could possibly need so you don't have anything to stress about. The beach is a short walk and it's beautiful. I loved the location and all the local information Joel provided. Definitely would visit again.

My husband and I stayed here for our 20th anniversary and couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to relax! Just a short walk to the beach, bikes to really enjoy the beautiful island, a comfortable home with everything in the kitchen you need to make great meals at home or great restaurants to go out! Highly recommend!!!
