Create lasting memories at this island oasis just steps from eight continuous miles of uncrowded sugar-sand beach. Relax, unwind, and immerse yourself in the tropical ambience of your own private sun-dappled courtyards, but know that world-famous Anna Maria Island, and all it has to offer, is right at your doorstep.
Tastefully decorated in a style reminiscent of Old Florida, every detail is geared to provide you with a relaxing home base for all your Gulf Coast activities. (2) Bedroom, (2) Bathroom, accomodates up to (6) people: 2 Queen, 1 Sleeper Sofa.
Lush patios offer the perfect venue for soaking up the sun or sitting in the shade under the cooling palms that surround the property. Large sliding glass walls in all living areas blur the boundaries between outdoors and in, and lend the cottage a light and airy ambience perfectly suited to its tropical surroundings.
Inside, warm light pours over designer furniture and décor meticulously chosen to balance casual elegance with local flavor. Recover from your jetlag in front of the living room’s high-definition flat screen TV, or use the free wireless internet and toll-free domestic long-distance to let everyone back home know you arrived safe and sound.
Two full bathrooms and two bedrooms with queen-sized beds and a sleeper sofa in the living room welcome up to six guests. Hotel quality commercially-laundered sheets and linens will have you feeling extra pampered in this exclusive vacation complex, which is widely acknowledged as one of Anna Maria Island’s best.
When you’re ready to venture out in the Florida sunshine, slap on the SPF30 and discover the heated pool, accessed directly from your own private courtyard. Shared only among the four Starfish Beach cottages, the pool is the perfect place for some quiet relaxation or to make friends with your vacation neighbors.
And you can leave the car where it is… beyond the privacy fence you’ll find a vast array of nearby shops, attractions, restaurants, and local haunts close enough to walk to. Check out the venerable Mr. Bones BBQ with its famous coffin full of iced bottled beer. Or stroll groomed paths through the newly-opened Grassy Point Nature Preserve. Both unique experiences are just around the corner from Kingfisher Cottage and many more await a short walk away. If you’re feeling adventuresome, discover the area on the free trolley that circumnavigates the island and stops just a couple blocks from the cottage.
But of course if you come to Anna Maria Island you’ll have to put in some beach time. And Kingfisher Cottage is perfect for it. Less than a sixty-second walk to the sugar white sand, you’re close enough to set up on the beach and still have convenient access to the cottage and all its facilities. Go for a swim, build a sand-castle, walk the surf, do some shelling, or just lean back on the supplied beach chair, close your eyes, and bask in all the sounds, fresh air, and sunshine of this top-rated Gulfside destination.
Whether you’re floating lazily in the heated pool, or enjoying the sun-warmed surf; whether you’re enchanted by the melodious mockingbirds that greet each day, or charmed by the busy hummingbirds and raucous parrots that frequent the neighborhood – Kingfisher Cottage will inspire and rejuvenate. It’s just what you need – what you deserve. One stay here and you’ll want to come back year after year. We promise…
