Seagrape Cottage is a charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath beach cottage with unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico and just 35 steps to the white sand Gulf beach. 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.

On the main floor, there are two bedrooms, one with a Queen size bed and flatscreen tv with dvd and one with a twin. The main floor has a full bath with tub/shower combination, a big living/dining area with large windows and flatscreen tv and a large dining table that seats six. 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!

Wonderful location near the beach and bay. Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Charming unit near the beach and bay, 100 feet from the beach and close to the bay. Had great amenities and was very comfortable. Location was great, I stayed closer to the southern end of the island so it worked out perfectly. I would definitely stay there again!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 4 of 5

Great location for walking to the beach, restaurants, and night life. The accommodations were clean, which is all we were really hoping for. Its right on Gulf Drive so traffic can be a bear and makes sleeping in the upstairs room almost impossible, but that's the only negative.
