Area Information

On this very special island you won't find fast food restaurants or Big Box stores or high rise buildings. You will find many excellent restaurants, unique stores and beautiful homes and low rise condos.

The feel is a slowed down, old time Florida before all the tourist tackiness. You'll enjoy living on island time with a chance to catch your breath and enjoy life. But that doesn't mean you won't have plenty to do!
Some, but far from all, of the local activities include swimming, beach time, biking, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, golfing,para sailing, nature walks/rides/parks, horse back riding, dining and shopping, phew! There is much more!

Anna Maria Island is also a perfect base to go in to Bradenton, Sarasota and Tampa. You can also easily visit Busch Gardens or Disney for some theme park action.

Come visit again or experience the island for the first time, you'll likely be back :)

We couldn't have asked for a better AMI rental. I've stayed at others, but have finally found one I will stay at again (and again!) Don't worry about not being directly on the beach, because you are just a few steps away! It was wonderful to have our own pool, and super convenient that the owners provided chairs/towels and beach toys for the kids! Can't wait to visit again.

Look no further...!
My husband and I just returned from our 7 night stay at beautiful Blue Turtle Cottage; we wish we were still there and had booked a longer stay.

Restaurants, Walgreens, Publix, souvenir shops are just down the road - nothing is far away.

The cottage is absolutely idyllic, perfect for the beach (which is less than a stones throw away!), and the private pool was heavenly when it was too hot to lay out!

Living room and bedrooms so very comfortable and Michele is an absolute pleasure.

Don't look any further, this place is perfect!

Thank you Michele!!!

Amazing vacation. Beautiful cottage with everything you need. Pool, beach, walking distance to groceries, restaurant, nail salon (a little pampering never hurt). Free island trolley for traveling the island. Owner Michelle is fabulous, always available to assist with any questions. Already planning next visit.

Perfectly positioned Blue Turtle Cottage.
Only 87 steps to the beautiful Gulf Sands! So convenient to watch AM Sunsets that really are spectacular, great position to walk north and South on the beach .... I did that every day. will certainly stay again next time we venture to AM .
