Located at 601 Gulf Drive South in Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island, it is a privately owned turn-key furnished “Old Florida Style” beach house that's shaded by large Seagrape trees. The cottage has been updated with new appliances, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, tile, sofa, beds and furnishings. Seagrape Cottage still has the feel of a “beach house” while having the amenities guests have come to expect.

Seagrape is a 2 story cottage. Upstairs, there is a bedroom which has windows on all 4 sides that provide a panoramic view of both the Gulf and Bay. This upstairs bedroom has two twin beds, a flatscreen tv and lots of storage. Also upstairs is a bathroom with shower.

A fully equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, stove with oven, most of the small appliances you could need plus a breakfast bar which seats four and a nook with views of the beach. In the living room, there is a sofa and loveseat. The sofa pulls out to a full size bed. Seagrape has free WiFi and cable.

One of Seagrape's favorite features is it's large wrap-around porch overlooking the Gulf. It's great for watching the Gulf, beautiful sunsets, eating outside or just relaxing.

So come and have a very enjoyable, memorable stay at Seagrape Cottage on Anna Maria Island!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
With two boys aged 9 & 10, Seagrape was exactly what we had hoped. Grocery store just a FREE trolley ride away with conv. stores and restaurants a short stroll away, we had a very relaxing 2 wk. vac. The best part of course was the beach being just a few steps away. The boys couldn't get enough!! Thank You, Dan and Renee

Exactly what we were looking for!!!!!!

We did quite a bit of research into finding a place that would fill the needs of a young family ( 2 boys age 9 & 10) , and Seagrape fit the bill to a capital T!! The house very relaxing, plenty of room for everything . With the beach just a hop and a skip away and the stores and restaurants a FREE trolley ride away, it was perfect!

My sister-in-law and I had a wonderful week long retreat in your charming cottage! The location was absolutely perfect for us. We arrived without a car and were super happy to have no place to go for the entire week. We made one trip on the trolley to the grocery store the day we arrived and simply enjoyed the area by foot and via rented bicycles. The house is lovely and Dan and Renea were super accommodating! Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: Lisa, it was great to have you two stay at Seagrape Cottage. It's really nice to get some relaxation and the charm and location of Seagrape Cottage provides for that. The free trolley makes it convenient to get around as does a bicycle since everything you need is pretty close by. As you said, you can also explore the area by foot since the beach is right there and Bridge Street, with many restaurants, bars and shops is easily walkable. Thank you so much for writing such a great review and for the kind words about us. Renea & Dan

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.

Glad you girls enjoyed long walks on the beach and the restaurants, shops and entertainment on nearby Bridge Street, a short walk from Seagrape's amazing location. It is a tranquil and cozy vacation cottage to enjoy the beach, sun and sunsets with family and friends. It was our pleasure to have you girls stay at Seagrape Cottage and we thank you so much for writing about your wonderful experience. Renea & Dan

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.
