Description from owner


From the same owners of A Lime Cottage (p277325), who've been recognized as TripAdvisor "rated excellent" vacation rental, Flipkey 2012 and 2013 Top Vacation Rental, 2012 Top Rental Manager", we're delighted to now have Lemon Cottage on Anna Maria Island.

Nestled in a quiet residential boating community across from prestigious waterfront homes of Holmes Beach, you'll come across the Lemon Cottage. Lemon Cottage is the perfect place to stay to enjoy all that the island has to offer. Lemon Cottage is a short stroll from the white sandy beaches and stunning sunsets of the Gulf coast. Centrally located just over the Manatee Bridge, the beach house is close to shopping, restaurants and the Manatee Public Beach and Beach Cafe.

With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, Lemon Cottage accommodates 4 (base) to 6 (max) people comfortably. The newly renovated open concept cottage is fully equipped with all the amenities you would expect. The property has a large covered lanai, tropical landscaping including mature pink grapefruit, orange, mango and coconut trees and a key lime bush surrounded by lush palms and a heated plunge pool.

The updated master bedroom features a king size bed topped with premium soft 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. The second bedroom has a new versatile twin over queen bunk bed and an ensuite bathroom. To ensure a restful night, we've equipped both bedrooms with new, quality mattresses. You also have a choice of one of two new queen sofa beds - one in the living room and one in the Florida room.

The key feature of Lemon Cottage is the sizable outdoor living space. The large screened lanai has ample room for a comfy seating area, dining for six and the heated plunge pool.

The house features comfortable furnishings, mattresses, bedding, with a new updated interior, (remote venting skylights, granite counter tops, flat panel tv's etc.). The house is conveniently located in a very quiet residential neighborhood surrounded by prestigious waterfront homes across the street from the bay.

We're easily available through email and by telephone should you have any questions.

Very Good

“Way more than we expected!”

Reviewed 1 May 2014

Our week at Lemon Cottage was just excellent! Owner, Chris, has thought of everything we would need for the beach. The house is lovely inside, and landscaped just as nicely outside. We used the two bikes to explore, and we took many walks. The lanai area, with pool, is so inviting, that we managed to spend many hours out there just relaxing and trying to decide why we needed to move on to any activity at all! One of the things we did was to take a boat trip with Captain Kim (which I had done before). We stopped at the low places in the bay at low tide and held many live sea creatures...a great trip for adults as well as children. Mote acquarium is also high on my list, and they also have an educational boat tour of Sarasota Bay. Ringling mansion tour and grounds was lovely as well, even though we were caught in a deluge of rain. Lemon Cottage was indeed a lovely place to spend a week and we are hopeful that we will be able to stay there again. I highly recommend it!

“Better than home”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2014

We have enjoyed vacationing on anna Maria Island for years. This was our first time at The Lemon Cottage and it was a great home base for our vacation. It is bright and roomy and in a peaceful neighborhood. Everything you need for an island vacation is provided including a beach wagon with beach chairs, umbrellas, wake boards, two bikes, and more. The lanai is the best feature for enjoying a meal, game night, or a swim.

“Lemon Cottage - Absolutely Perfect!”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2014

Thank you to the So family for allowing us to rejuvenate after a particularly long, cold WI winter. The Lemon Cottage was the perfect place for us and we really didn't want our vacation to end! It was clean, spacious and conveniently located to everything. The beach was only a few blocks from the cottage and we enjoyed going for long walks every day. We shopped for groceries at Publix which was also very close to the property. We picked up fresh fish at the Star Fish market in Cortez and enjoyed meals on our private lanai, which was one of our favorite places at the cottage. It was clean, comfortable, well appointed, had everything we needed for the beach (wagon, cooler, umbrella) and we were thankful for the sharp knives in the kitchen since we prepared many meals at "home". We really enjoyed Joan Durante park in Longboat Key (boardwalks/mangroves), Coquina Beach bay walk and Robinson's Preserve (look out tower, many birds, bay views, salt flats and mangroves) - so beautiful! Last but not least - the sunsets on aMI are amazing! It never gets old. If you are considering the Lemon Cottage for an upcoming trip - look no further. You will not be disappointed!

“Great comforts, great location, great landlord.”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2014

The cottage is beautifully appointed with colorful and comfortable furniture, a spacious lanai with enclosed pool, and a clean modern kitchen. Our host thoughtfully provided all conveniences and comforts. The location is a short walk to the beaches and an easy drive or bike ride to some cute shops and restaurants. Making guests happy and comfortable is obviously a labor of love for our host, and we hope to come back again.

“We loved the lemon cottage!”

Reviewed 24 Feb 2014

We recently stayed at the lemon cottage and loved it. Anna Maria Island is a beautiful place for a family vacation and the lemon cottage had everything we needed. We were very comfortable and had lots of room for our party of 5. The cottage is very well equipped and beautifully decorated. The kids loved the pool and internet and the adults loved the lanai. It was wonderful being able to spend so much of our time out doors. We also loved being close to the beach and trolley. Everything was perfect and we hated to leave. Our hosts were very professional, organized and helpful. Thanks for everything!

“Just Perfect!”

We had a wonderful time in Holmes Beach. The cottage was amazing...clean, spacious and well stocked. Chris is an excellent owner to deal with and we recommend renting from him with confidence.

“A Touch of Paradise ...”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2013

Lemon Cottage has everything we hope to find when vacationing. The location is ideal and the cleanliness is superior. During our two-week stay, it was evident that the owners, Chris and Stephanie, have taken great pains to provide everything their guests could want. We especially appreciated the fully-equipped kitchen, the large lanai with plunge pool, the very comfortable pillow-topped king bed, the remote-venting skylights (Wow!), Wifi, and the two adult bicycles. Beach chairs, a shade umbrella, and a bag for our sunscreen and books were available for our days at the beach. The cottage is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood with quick and easy access to the beach, grocery, and the free aMI Trolley. Whether we spent the day touring anna Maria Island on bikes, hiking Robinson Preserve, or reading on the beach, we always looked forward to quiet evenings on the lanai surrounded by beautifully-lighted garden landscaping. We highly recommend Lemon Cottage to aMI visitors and we look forward to our return visit.

“Great rental experience! Feel at home near the beach...”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2013

Thank you Chris and family for the wonderful rental experience at Lemon cottage. This was our 4th year staying on aMI and 2nd time in one of Chris' properties. As we expected from Chris, we felt at home as soon as we walked through the door. It is the attention to details that sets Chris' cottages apart, they have thought of everything so you can focus on your vacation. The kitchen is great with most tools you will ever need, the lanai, cute pool and grill are great for relaxing and entertaining! The house is clean and well equipped, the bedrooms are inviting and homey with new TVs, plus the 3D TV in the living room. We love the beach wagon and beach amenities included (this is easily taken for granted, but the cottage we had last year had no wagon or supplies, so no way to haul your gear to the beach!)There are even bicycles for an island ride. We love the location, less than 10 minute walk to the beach, a 2 minute drive to the grocery store and drug store and right at the start of the north end of the island. I would highly recommend this rental (or any of Chris' properties) for anyone wanting a peaceful stay on aMI , it is great for families and entertaining, plus Chris is accessible and makes you feel welcome & you get the idea he really cares about your experience. Thanks Chris & Family!

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2013

We really enjoyed our 1 week stay at the Lemon Cottage. Mom loved the huge screened-in patio, Daddy loved how well the kitchen is equipped and that it has a fantastic BBQ, our son loved the pool. Chris and family are doing a great job keeping the house clean and organized. Anna Maria Island has amazing beaches and the Lemon Cottage is only a short walk away from these. We actually liked the island so much that we bought our own vacation rental.

“Fantastic place to stay with many great amenities!”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2013

Our family of four stayed at Lemon Cottage aug 3-10, 2013. The house is very clean and well maintained. So many wonderful things are provided that you really only need to bring minimal clothing. The beds are comfortable and clean. Loved having the key pad entry so there was no need to keep track of a key. The screened in lanai is very peaceful in the evenings and is a great place to relax with a glass of wine. The location is good and is within walking distance to the public beach. Publix grocery store and CVS are very close, too. Our kids are older and enjoyed riding the bikes around the island. Chris is very friendly and answered any questions. He is easy to work with! We look forward to going back to anna Maria and Lemon Cottage. I recommend staying at Lemon Cottage, you won't be disappointed!
