The Perfect Girls Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The Seagrape Cottage made the perfect place for our girls retreat. It is SO charming! So much so that while having wine with lunch on the wraparound porch overlooking the beach, a young couple approached thinking the cottage was a restaurant. From the cottage we could easily take long walks on the beach or walk to Bridge Street and enjoy shopping, dining, and entertainment. Our stay at the Seagrape Cottage provided treasured memories! We recommend it for anyone wanting to spend time with family or friends in a tranquil and cozy place.

Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about this adorable house! Our family of 5 and our dog down from NJ with the can packed. We didn't need 1/2 the things we brought because the house had basically everything we needed except food and toiletries. Even sand toys for my son. The location is perfect right across the street from the beach, and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The street was not busy or noisy at all. The wrap around porch is a great place to sit and watch the sunset. The house is even bigger than I expected and the decor is warm and inviting. We have already bragged about it to all our friends and family. We hope they make it down there to see it for themselves. The owners are so kind and accommodating. Thanks again! We had the most amazing time staying here. We plan in returning year after year!!
Time of our lives!

Owner's Response: Terry, so glad you and your family had an amazing time staying at Seagrape Cottage. Happy you enjoyed the inviting beach decor. The huge wraparound porch is a favorite, where families enjoy watching the Gulf and sunsets. It's also nice to be able to walk to all Bridge Street has to offer, get an ice cream or enjoy the beautiful beach. Thanks and we'll see you and your family on your next trip back to the charming Seagrape Cottage and Anna Maria Island. Renea and Dan.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5
We are a family with two small boys ages 3 and 5 at the time of our stay. We wanted something close to the beach (bathroom/snack breaks) and within walking distance of restaurants and activities. This place was exactly what we were looking for. It is cozy, convenient and well kept. The owners were easy to reach, friendly and available. The beach couldn't have been more than 20 steps from the porch. They have some sand/water toys and beach chairs available as well as plenty of beach towels (separate from the bathroom towels that were also plentiful). I loved having a line in the back yard to hang wet clothes/towels. We used the gas bbq grill and they had the appropriate utensils stocked in the kitchen for grilling and regular indoor cooking. The trolly stop is right in front of the house but this did not pose a noise problem at all. Even though you need to cross Gulf Drive to get to the beach, we did not have any noise problems or difficulties crossing with young children. This is NOT a fast moving portion of the road and we did not feel that it was a safety hazard for our family. Restaurants and mini-golf were within walking distance, even for our 3 year old. There is a convenience store within walking distance if you are in a pinch or a grocery store easily accessible by trolly or car. This was honestly the best vacation we have had with our boys because of the comfortable home and the fabulous location. We will happily rent this property in the future.

What a gem !!!!

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at Sea Grape we were in awe. Charming, relaxing, with stunning views of the ocean and bay from every room in the cottage. Each room was more than well equipped and decorated with charm and warmth. From the moment we booked this lovely cottage we were anxious to start our vacation and this lovely cottage met every expectation and more. We spent most of our nights on the wrap around porch enjoying family time while watching the waves roll in. This cottage is about 15 steps to the beach, a quick stroll to restaurants, and Joe's Sweets & Treats. We found some off the beaten path beaches like White Ave and Bean Point which are incredible and breath taking! Just a 5 minute free trolley ride south to Coquina Beach (which I must say is way better than our usual Seats Key Beach). We never had to drive thanks to the free trolley. I can't say enough about this place. It offers everything and more. My son summed Sea Grape up when he said this doesn't feel like we are at a rental, it feels like we are home. And we couldn't agree more! We will be back for sure next year and every year after.

Thank you Dan for making us feel so welcome and for sharing your gem with us.

The Most Perfect Vacay Home ~ LOVE It

  • 5 of 5
The Sea Grape Cottage was the PERFECT vacation home for our family! It was adorable, charming and had everything we needed for the week with our 3 kids and 2 adopted-for-the-week extras. There was more than enough room inside but we all preferred gathering on the wonderful wrap around porch for meals, games, relaxing, people watching, etc.. The location is as amazing as the home ~ literally across the street from the beach. My husband & I took our beach chairs to the beach with our coffee every morning, left our chairs on the beach and returned with the kids later in the day & for sunsets every evening. Everything is within walking distance ~ shops, the pier, restaurants, nightlife, water sports, parasailing, etc.. And the free trolley gave the teens some much needed time away from the younger 2 without us having to worry about them taking the car. Having been a visitor to the area for 30 years, having had to rent the past few years after the sale of a family's winter home, I have to say I wish we would have found this sooner!! Some of the best vacation memories EVER were made on the Sea Grape's porch, across the street on the beach, the walkable restaurants/bars and even the walks to and from. I can't recommend this property enough if you are looking for a low key, laid back, island time atmosphere with everything so close!! We can't wait to figure out a time when we can return ~ the sooner, the better!!!

A Wonderful Month at Seagrape

  • 5 of 5
We spent a month at Sea Grape Cottage, and loved it! For the same or similar price as a condo, we had a roomy, comfortable house in a wonderful location with a view of the Gulf and the sand dunes, and we got to watch the sun set most nights from the porch. My husband walked a short distance down 6th street each morning to watch the sun rise in Tampa Bay. With wi-fi we were able to keep in touch with family and friends. We walked south to Longboat bridge and back easily, as well as north to shops and restaurants and Bridge Street Pier. We did errands in Holmes Beach, or explored Anna Maria by hopping on the free trolley, which stopped in front of the cottage. The kitchen, with its new dishwasher, was very well equipped. All the towels (even beach towels) and bedding were provided, and the laundry room was a few steps from the cottage. Bette & Peggy answered our questions and provided help when needed. We enthusiastically recommend renting Sea Grape Cottage. It's a wonderful place to stay while visiting Anna Maria Island.

Owner's Response: Jesse & Ruth,
We loved having you, and I know the new owners will love you too! The sale has gone through, and we are sooo lucky to have found people who love the house and island like we do! They will continue to rent it until they are ready to retire, so to all our past renters (and friends :) the house will still be available for a while. I'll be helping with rentals until they get settled and are ready to do them themselves, so you can still email and call me with questions.
Let's all have a big round of YEA"S!!!!! the house will live cheers. Hopefully you'll have your vacation in SeaGrape for years to come. We know you love it as much as we do! <3 Peggy for Bette
