3 Bedroom, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6) - “Emma’s Cottage” - 306 Gulf Boulevard in Anna Maria.
“Emma’s Cottage” is an absolutely stunning one of a kind vacation destination. From location to original antiques you won’t find a more authentic version of old Florida.
After experiencing great family success Emma Palmer built her cottage in 1912. This is one of four original Anna Maria Island cottages all built in the early 1900’s. These homes are nicknamed the “Painted Ladies” because of the vibrant colors they were originally painted.
There are so many interesting facts about the history of this Anna Maria beach rental, but first, the amenities here are wonderful. “Emma’s Cottage” offers vintage luxury, but with all the modern conveniences.
When you enter this home you’ll find the, now enclosed, porch with a lovely sitting area and gulf views. Moving through into the living room you’ll find many great antiques that will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. Through the home you’ll find the original woodwork, beadboard and heart pine floors.
Off the living room you’ll find two guest rooms. One offers a queen bed and the other a full bed. Both rooms have flat screen televisions and are decorated in vintage shades of pastel. The main level bathroom offers a walk in shower and natural stone flooring.
Take the staircase in the living room up to the second level. Here you’ll find the large master bedroom and bath take up the entire floor. There are two seating areas with one looking over the gulf and the other centered around the flat screen television. The retro style mini-fridge and Keurig are perfect for making a cup of breakfast tea and snacks without even leaving this private haven. The large bathroom offers two vanity sinks, a walk in shower and bathtub. To finish off this bedroom there is plenty of closet space and a king size bed. You’ll truly feel pampered in this lavish secluded master suite.
As you head down the stairs you’ll notice they’re somewhat narrow and steep like you would find on a small ship. The staircase was built by out of work shipbuilders giving it this unique architectural style.
Heading to the back of the house you’ll find the custom kitchen and laundry room. The kitchen at “Emma’s Cottage” is truly the heart of this home. You’ll find stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, ice maker and more refrigerator space than you’ll likely need. The professional grade double oven and 10 burner stove will make preparing any meal a joy. Seat 4 at the island counter or there is a table in this open concept kitchen. The beautiful counter tops, farm sink and tiled backsplash add extra luxury to this amazing space.
In the rear of the house you’ll also find the laundry room. This portion of the cottage, at one time, was the garage and housed Emma Palmers Model T.
Exit through the French doors into the backyard. This space is truly beautiful with a heated pool, outdoor shower, lush landscape and a fun Tiki hut. You and your family will love relaxing here while the sounds of the waterfall mix with the crashing of the waves on the coastline.
Not only is this special cottage right on the gulf, but it’s just a short walk away from shopping, dining and trolley stops. Walk over to Ginny and Jane E’s for breakfast and the Sandbar Restaurant for dinner with a sunset.
“Emma’s Cottage” offers parking for four vehicles in the two driveways and welcomes dogs up to 25 pounds with a fee.
Beyond all the well-appointed amenities you’ll love the historic feel of this home. Emma Palmer was known for entertaining and would host a ladies bridge club. She would serve the ladies tea and snacks, but it’s rumored there was a twist! As many years later when the pool was being dug many small gin bottles were found buried in the backyard.
Just as Emma Palmer did you too can enjoy the Florida Charm of days past. Book an Anna Maria Island vacation you’ll adore with “Emma’s Cottage”!
