DIRECT GULF FRONT cottage in Holmes Beach!
When we say that Sea la vie is right on the beach, we mean one step off the back porch! (2) Bedroom, (1) Bathroom, accommodates up to (5) people: 1 Queen and 2 Twins. Open the windows and fall asleep to crashing waves. Sea gulls and sunlight will be your alarm clock – that’s just how island time works, nd that’s exactly what time you’re on during a holiday at Sea La Vie.
Sea La Vie is also located near some of the best loved restaurants on Anna Maria Island, but there will be days when you just can’t leave the cottage. The water will shimmer, you’ll get comfortable under the umbrella with a good book and before you know it, the sky is once again turning into a kaleidoscope sunset over the Gulf of Mexico, and when that happens, there is a charcoal grill and updated kitchen available for you to enjoy home cooking on your beach holiday. No need to go hungry just because you fell under the spell of island life.
While you might feel a thousand miles from reality in this vacation rental, the real world does still exist out there and wireless internet will keep you connected to it, or escape from it even further by cuddling up with a movie on the living room’s flat screen.
But there are some can’t miss spots on the island that are not within walking distance of Sea La Vie. A stop for the island’s free, air conditioned trolley is though! Ride it down to the north end of the island for boutique shopping on Pine Ave or fishing off the Rod and Reel Pier. Learn fun trivia about the area from your tour guide. Do you know which famous cookie was invented right here on Anna Maria Island? You will by the end of your ride around on the trolley.
The real charm of Sea La Vie is its simplicity. Good company, plenty of sunscreen, and an iced drink for the patio are all you’ll need for a dream beach vacation. Come spend a week here and find out what it really means to get away from it all.

We love the beach cottage...
We loved the beach cottage and the great service from Island Real Estate. We have already booked for next year!"
"Myself and my husband stayed for a week. We've stayed on AMI in many hotels/motels but this was the first time in a home. It was perfect in every way, location, cleanliness, comfortable bed. There was everything we needed and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Exceeded our expectations in every way. Thank you."

Who is the washer and dryer shared with? Also is there an umbrella for the table on the deck? Thanks!
Asked On 03/14/2016 Answered on 03/17/2016
The washer/dryer is shared with the home behind that we rent as well called Beachcomber on our web site. There is not an unbrella advertised for the table on the deck.
The description mentions an umbrella but I don't see one in the picture. Is there shade available from an umbrella or tree?
Asked On 03/28/2016 Answered on 03/29/2016
This home doesn't have an umbrella on the deck, and since it is directly on the beach there isn't a tree for shade either. Good news is your views are completely unobstructed.
Can you tell me if there are any towels available for the beach. thank you.
Asked On 04/18/2016 Answered on 04/19/2016
This home is on the Premium Linen Service, so yes you would have beach towels.
Is there an iron & ironing board? Thx.
Asked On 05/09/2016 Answered on 05/10/2016
Yes there is an iron/ironing board at this home.
Where is the washer and dryer for this house
Asked On 05/09/2016 Answered on 05/10/2016
Yes there is a shared washer/dryer under the house behind this one.
is this a single family house or do you share the deck
Asked On 06/08/2016 Answered on 06/08/2016
This is a single family home. You do not share the deck.
Are beach chairs and umbrella provided?
Asked On 06/25/2016 Answered on 06/25/2016
Unfortunately, Island Real Estate cannot guarantee there will be any beach chairs, umbrellas or toys at your vacation rental property. However, if upon arrival you find there are chairs, etc. then you are welcome to enjoy them. Some guests leave items behind and some owners will purchase an inventory of fun beach equipment a few times a year.
Too often these items get left behind on the beach, broken, etc. so there really is no way for us to know what is there from week to week. We suggest you check in, take a look around the property to see what is there that you would like to use and then if you feel you want something extra pick it up at a local shop or rent just about anything from Fun and More, Beach Bum’s or one of the other Anna Maria Island equipment rental companies.
Is full payment due at time of booking or is there a down payment now and balance due later?
Asked On 08/16/2016 Answered on 08/17/2016
You may call us toll free, 877-778-6066 and we can secure your reservation or you may book online if you prefer. We collect a $250 down payment at the time of booking with MasterCard, Visa or Discover. The remaining 25% down payment is due within 7 days via online payment. The final balance is due 60 days prior to arrival, payable by personal checks or debits directly from your checking/savings account only.
