Updated on Sep 7, 2019

Adorable, Affordable, Comfortable, Florida Cottage, GREAT Location With Pool

Located in: Holmes Beach
Recently purchased from longtime VRBO owner of property called DayDream Cottage with 47 great reviews. This is same home, with same furnishings but now called Ragtop Day.

If you are dreaming of a vacation where you can kick back and relax then look no further than Ragtop Day Cottage on charming Anna Maria Island!

Ragtop Day Cottage is a wonderful place to enjoy all Anna Maria Island has to offer. Less than a three minute stroll from the white sandy beaches and stunning sunsets of the Gulf coast, the property has a landscaped, private back yard with heated salt water swimming pool, portable outdoor shower for rinsing off beach sand, a propane BBQ grill and cast iron patio table that comfortably fits six. There's even a Sunsetter awning over the front patio where you can relax and take in the surroundings of the Island.

Under new ownership, this adorable, updated single family cottage is our new vacation home that we offer to a few renters per year. It is not a year round rental business property. Ragtop Day Cottage can accommodate 6 with 2+ bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The spacious master bedroom features a luxurious king sized bed, vaulted ceiling. The second bedroom has a versatile twin over full size bunk bed and another single bed with pull-out trundle. A flexible third bedroom/TV room has a trundle daybed that converts to either 2 singles or a king sized bed. To ensure a restful night’s sleep all beds have quality mattresses and linens. There is also another full sized sofa bed in the living room.

This old Florida style, "ritz cracker cottage" has lots of windows and doors to let in the natural light. The bright airy eat-in kitchen features seating for six. The fully equipped and updated kitchen includes custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, fridge with ice-maker, Bosch dishwasher, electric cook top and oven, microwave, coffeemaker, anodized aluminum cookware, powerful blender for fruit smoothies or frozen Margaritas, quality utensils, dishes, cutlery and glass stemware (as well as plastic stemware for all those sunsets at the beach you won't want to miss!)

Ragtop Day Cottage is the perfect place for two adult couples or small family to enjoy a much needed vacation. It is located on a private cul de sac, away from the traffic of Gulf Drive while still being close to shopping, restaurants, supermarkets and local attractions. For your entertainment - inside there are three HD flat screen TVs, a Blu-ray DVD player with amplifier and surround sound and easy to operate remote. There are two DVD players in the kids rooms, an older style vintage VCR (remember them?), plus several movies, games and books for the kids (and adults as well). There is also a portable speaker docking station for your phone to enjoy in any room or out on the patio.

Just outside the Florida room awaits your private heated saltwater pool nestled among luscious tropical palms. For your convenience the pool house shed in the back contains two adult bikes, three kid’s bikes, helmets, beach chairs, umbrellas, and a beach cart to make the short walk easy. Beach towels are included along with access to new washer/dryer and an iron/ironing board (but who irons on vacation?).

The quiet, white sandy beaches and the Gulf's emerald green waters are only a short block and a half stroll away. There is a crosswalk right there, so traffic stops when you cross Gulf Drive. To enjoy all the amazing sights of the island, Anna Maria offers a free trolley for you to easily get around which stops literally steps away from your front door. The trolley can accommodate bikes so you can explore different parts of the Island even if you don't want to ride there and all the way back. The house is situated on the narrow portion of island, so its a few block walk from bay to ocean. Its a very short walk or bike ride to Publix food shopping plaza. A short stroll to Sharkys or Bones for food. A short ride to the Beach House or Gulf Cafe, both oceanfront dining and happy hour. A short ride to Bridge Street shopping and dining too! Cross the bridge to the fishing village of Cortez and get fresh seafood, dockside at The Starfish. Enjoy the south portion of the island and avoid the crowds .

The house will feel more like a home away from home than a rental property (because it is our home!) once you unpack and stock the main frig and wine frig with all of your favorites; or if you don't cook while on vacation, dine out at one of the many quaint bistros or beachfront dining spots. For a road trip, the cottage is only an hour from Tampa's Busch Gardens and Water Parks, (and Orlando is only an hour and 45 minutes away). If you are horse person, Ocala is about an hour drive north. Or take a day trip south to Sarasota, Venice or maybe Naples.

So what are you waiting for? Click here and get your your Ragtop Day vacation started and set your watch to 'Island Time' at Ragtop Day Cottage!
