By simply walking through a lovely leafy lane you arrive at the beautiful beach of Anna Maria, or choose to stay and while away your day in the hammock in the dappled shade. Safety is of the highest importance to us and the doors leading from this property come directly into the pool area. They are alarmed for your own peace of mind. Our pool is deep, 4 feet at the shallow end and we always advise complete supervision over children and non swimmers. Due to this we do not recommend this cottage for children. The alarm does have an on off switch but we have to recomend that this is not turned off. If for any reason you dont think this is working when you arrive there is a tel no for you to call to get it rectified imeadiatley. If rented with Seahorse this door can be double locked and padlocked.
Changeover days are flexible however we do prefer to avoid Sundays. If this is not possible then a surcharge of £35.00 + tax may be applied.
Check-in is any time after 3pm and check-out is by 10.30am on the day of departure.
Bedding and towels are provided and the property is cleaned before and after your visit however we do ask that it is left in a good manner when you depart.
Hairdryer is provided.
We are not able to provide baby equipment however there are rental companies on the island where equipment can be hired and we can provide contact information if required.
The property is strictly no smoking and we do not allow pets.

"Quaint cottage in nice area"
I've written this review after coming across the cottage again whilst browsing this website. I realised that I hadn't written a review after our stay. This little cottage is perfect for a couple. It's in a lovely part of AMI at the north end within walking distance to loads. When we rented we had friends staying in the cottage next door and we shared laundry facilities. The cottage was well equipped and the pool area was lovely but watch out for those mossies at night time (probably due to the nice landscaping, flowers etc. Best to take some repellant and remember to use it. The beach at that part of the island is great and the trolley stop is a short walk. I would rent this cottage again especially if there were a group of us using all three.
