This second floor cottage is only steps away from Holmes Beach and overlooks the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The perfect location of this cottage also puts you less than a mile from shopping and dining including a Walgreens and Mr. Bones BBQ restaurant that is ranked as one of the best BBQ restaurants in the Bradenton and Sarasota area. Two bedrooms and one bathroom makes up this cozy beach cottage. The master bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed and the second bedroom is furnished with two twin beds. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need with a stainless steel refrigerator. In your down time relax on the large comfortable sectional couch while watching television on a flat screen television and enjoy free WiFi Internet access.

Every Island attraction is right at your fingertips during your stay here. Whether you want to sink your toes in the soft white sands on the beach, or pause to watch the sunset over the tranquilly Gulf of Mexico Ocean, you’ll only have to walk a short distance. Come and experience for yourself why Anna Maria Island is considered Florida's hidden gem!

The free Island Trolley is ready to take you to the north end of the island to visit the village of Anna Maria, where two historic piers offer opportunities for fishing and dinning. Shops restaurants, galleries, and even a museum and community theater can also be found on the north end of the island.

Holmes Beach, you can get off the Trolley to enjoy more excellent shops and restaurants, as well as a marina, library, free community tennis courts, and several gyms open to visitors.

You will also want to explore the rest of Bradenton Beach. Historic Bridge Street was once the location of the very first bridge to the mainland. Today's Cortez Bridge, just a bit to the north, is made out of sturdier stuff than the original wood structure, but the original street is still there, and it is a fun place for shopping, dining, live music, a weekly open-air market (in season), fishing, and even miniature golf!

Besides the obvious great location, The unit has a great kitchen, very well appointed. The bed in the master bedroom was VERY comfortable. The living area was comfortable and relaxing. Because of the great layout, the unit actually appeared bigger than it was. We weren't expecting the kitchen table and chairs that we found upon arrival so that was a pleasant surprise. All in all it couldn't have been better. We can't wait to return if the unit is available. We enjoyed the daily 15 minute walk on the beach to the Beach Cafe for coffee and breakfast too. Seeing the sunsets from our unit was better than we had hoped for. A+ experience

Response from Rent Siesta Key

William your review covers many of the things we hear from guests who stay in this home. Thank you for succinctly conveying those points for the benefit of future guest who can be overwhelmed with options when booking. We know once they get in the home and see the wall of windows with a sweeping 2nd story view of the beach, they're going to fall in love. However, there is often times no more credible source than a prior guest, as you know - so thanks again for taking the time to do that. We hope to see your family again soon. Please call us at if there is anything we can do to help plan your return visit.

This was the best vacation our family has ever been on. The cottage was perfect for our young family. It has EVERYTHING you need. From cooking tools to ocean toys and chairs-everything that makes it feel like home. Amazing location and views. Met the manager, he was very very nice and helpful. LOVE LOVE LOVE AMI & this cottage. You will not be disappointed. Already planning our next trip & we will of course be staying here! Thank you for all of the wonderful memories <3

We were very impressed! We stayed on the top floor and the views were outstanding! The rental was very clean and the decor was adorable!! Can't say enough about the location , steps from the beach!! You can hear the waves at night . Sits on a quiet road , but close to the Publix grocery store and other stores . We had everything we needed . They have a laundry room on the first floor, patio and grill. The area where chairs and beach stuff is stored needs to be cleaned out, just a pile of stuff. Otherwise we honestly had the one of the best vacations we have ever had ! We will 100% come back here!

This was our 2nd year at Ocean View and we are already reserved for next year. Not sure I need to say more than that but I will :)

This beachy condo has everything you need from the kitchen to the beach equipment.

You are literally 10 steps from your drive way to the sandy beach access. It has an awesome view right from the condo so if you are feeling like 10 steps is too far to go to watch the sunset you can watch it right from the condo.

We love everything about this condo and Anna Maria Island. Renting with Rent Siesta Key is super simple and they have always answered any of my emails with questions promptly.

We wanted a beach vacation location that we could return to year after year and we totally found it. Anna Maria Island as a whole is just a nice area.

.... and I am not sure I should say this out loud but if you are looking for a place that is economical aka affordable enough to stay 2 weeks for what other places are charging for 1 week in this "location" with all they provide…..well this is the place!
Simple little place, but loved it!

Went for a late fall vacation. The location of this place could not be any better. The apartment was clean and nicely decorated, looks just like the pictures! The bathtub could use a facelift as it is very worn. The property manager came by and made sure we had everything we needed. it was a wonderful week spent on the beach. I will highly recommend this place.
super holiday. Perfect.

Awesome location with great views..... Photos very misleading though - this house is way smaller then what the photos show and could use some updates (i.e... the bathroom) windows are dated and dirty which makes it hard to enjoy the amazing views. Had plenty of beach items on hand for renters use. Located close to everything.

Location was perfect! Beds were small! My boys are tall one 6'3 my husband is 6'2... suggest 1 king size bed. Restroom was small and bathtub and draining needs work. Door to full size bed did not close or lock properly... privacy issue. Pictures were deceiving. Place looked larger. Next time will take the bottom of the house with two restrooms with a king bed!

Thank you for choosing to stay at Ocean View property on Anna Maria Island. The unit is an affordable beachside getaway. There are two twin beds in the guest bedroom and a queen bed in the master bedroom, these specifics are disclosed in the listing amenities section, description, as well as in the pictures. The comment regarding putting a king bed in the unit due to length is interesting as the length of a queen bed and king bed are identical at 80"...

We are 3 adult ladies doing a girls trip and this place is AWESOME!!!!

This is not a super “fancy” place but we are not super “fancy” people and wanted COMFORTABLE and RELAXING that we could afford for 2 weeks.

This unit is super beachy cute and clean with everything you need.

I have seen a few comments on toilet paper. When you rent a condo/home the renter is responsible all consumable items!!

NOW LET ME TELL YOU WHAT YOU WILL GET that we did not get renting with others.

The process was simple with Rent Siesta Key from the deposit to our check out.

The unit was clean when we arrived.

You are literally 1 house from the beach and because of the location there we not a lot of people on the beach.

The entire front of this unit is all windows. We were super happy when we got there because the owners replaced the little 2 top high table with a regular table with 6 chairs. IT IS THE PERFECT PLACE to watch the sun set! Or when cool outside whip open all those windows and enjoy.

NICE kitchen full appliances that are actually work.

The MOST comfortable mattress and pillows I have ever slept on. There are closets in both bedrooms and space under the beds for luggage.

The bathroom is accessible from both bedrooms and serves at a great noise barrier between the rooms.

Nice TV with COMFORTABLE couch for relaxing.

2 washer and dryer units at the bottom of the stairs.

NICE AND I MEAN NICE beach chairs and beach umbrellas with anchors and plenty of beach towels.

This may seem like a weird NICE but there is minimal plants, trees, and bushes on this property which means LESS BUG BITES.

We also had the pleasure of actually meeting the owners of this house. They were very down to earth nice people. I guess I like the fact that my money is going to owners that actually care about their units and their guests.

We have found our lit

We appreciated being able to get into the rental a little earlier as we had wedding stuff to put away! There was only one roll of toilet paper for 3 adults for a three night stay! When staying in VRBO places before we have never encountered skimpy tp before!

Response from Rent Siesta Key

Thank you for your stay at the Ocean View property. Our rental agreement clearly outlines 'consumable' items i.e. toilet paper are not provided by the management company that they are the responsibility of the guest. This information is spelled out prior to guest booking reservation as they must agree to the terms of the lease as well as provided again 6 weeks prior to guest arrival when the check-in information is sent out. As a courtesy we do place 1 roll of toilet paper in the unit upon arrival.

The property was clean and the location was just a few steps from the beach. They have plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers for use. The property manager was extremely nice. The only reason I gave four stars is they only provide one roll of toilet paper, no paper towels and no kitchen towels. Other than that the property was adorable and the location was amazing. We would definitely stay here again.

This house was perfect for us. With three children four years and under we wanted a place walking distance to the beach and this house delivered! The house is beautifully decorated and comes equipped with plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, and floats! We are already planning on going back next year!

This is a great little beach house on a quite dead end street. The location is very convenient - an easy walk to shops and restaurants (Mr. Bones satisfied my son's BBQ lust and my daughter;'s vegan diet. That's a rare find!). The beach access is across the lightly traveled street. We couldn't have been happier with the combination of price, location, and quality of this lovely cottage.
