They made every part of our vacation perfect. The house is immaculate and the golf cart was the perfect addition. We were a able to take the paddle boards and kayak out with the golf cart. So if you're looking for somewhere to stay.... don't look anymore.... this is it!!

The owners were wonderful, the house was clean and we loved the decor. Enjoyed the golf cart and bicycles, the walk to the beach was easy. We’ll definitely be back.

Dan and Goose were fantastic hosts. They greeted our family on arrival and regularly checked in to see how we were doing. They even called us after departure for some items left behind! The cottage was very well equipped with lovely home touches- beach towels, sunscreen, kids’ items including high chair pack n play and floaties, towels, soaps, washer dryer with soaps- everything! You just need to bring your family and a bathing suit and you’re ready for a beach vacation. Perfect location. We loved it!

We absolutely loved staying at the cottage! The location was excellent for walking to the ocean and we loved the pool in the back as well! So many positives about this place! The outdoor shower was lovely, the use of the golf cart was so handy and fun, all the beach items provided like the wagon, umbrellas, towels, stand up paddleboards, sunscreen, etc.... Everything was wonderful! We had a great 3 days staying here and enjoyed it very much! Thank you for a fantastic start to our first trip to Florida! Our family of 4 (with a 13 and 11 year old) loved it! It was relaxing and so much fun. The location for us was just what we were hoping for. It wasn't super touristy with rows of hotels and masses of people. It was a nice and quiet community with all we were looking for. Husband and son saw a dolphin at the pier when they were out for a golf cart ride one morning. My daughter found a large group of live sand dollars on the ocean bottom that were so cool! We loved the coquina shells burying themselves again and again with the waves. Husband and daughter tried out the paddleboards. Beautiful sunsets and the weather was great as well! We went out for one meal on the pier and ice cream one afternoon, otherwise we cooked at home. We were heading to Universal Orlando afterward and knew we'd be eating out plenty so it was nice to cook at home. You have a fantastic place that we'd recommend to anyone!

The small cottage was decorated perfectly and was just what we needed for a fantastic weekend. It has absolutely everything you need for an amazing beach weekend. Just being a bathing suite and you are set!
The pool is super nice, very clean, and just what you want after a beach day. The golf cart was a nice plus and the kids loved zipping around the Island on it. It was also super helpful to transport our heavy sun shade and cooler to the beach. (You do not need the golf cart to get to the beach, it is totally walking distance)
We got to meet the owners and they are delightful people. They went above and beyond to please us.
We can't wait to go back.

This cottage was more than a home away from home, it was a 5 star hotel packed into a charming cottage! Just like all the other reviews, Goose and Dan, the owners, truly did think of EVERYthing when they made this cottage available to the public. From the well stocked kitchen and bathroom, to the mini resort pool and hot tub in the backyard, to the pillow top mattresses with bedside bottled water, to the ice packs and plenty of towels and sunscreen, to all the accessories for the pool and the beach, and my personal favorite the GOLF CART. I did rent a car for to and from the airport, but the golf cart got us to all the locally owned restaurants for lunch and dinner. Goose and Dan were available if we needed them, checked in on us to make sure we were experiencing exactly what we came here for, and had great information for us when we needed recommendations for specific food cravings! I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone needing a quiet get away, a very short distance to the white powdery beaches with the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We DID see a manatee from the beach while we were there, and also saw wild dolphins not too far on the horizon, spectacular sunsets, schools of small fish swimming around us, dive-bombing seagulls, a cute little crab running around on the beach, a star fish needing rescuing, and plenty of great shells that came home with us! It was just the 4 days at the beach I needed, and we'll definitely be back to Castaway Cottage and to give Goose and Dan a hug who are now part of our extended family! Thank you for an AMAZING place to have our short vacation, we loved every minute of our stay!

Dan and Goose did an amazing job of making sure our visit was nothing short of perfect. The Cottage was immaculate with cute details, including a great selection of coffees and chocolates. Wonderful bath accessories too! They think of everything! The pool and hot tub are spectacular. The internet was blazing fast when I had to log in to take care of some work. Castaway Cottage is located within a short distance to shopping, dining and drinking using the golf cart they provide. They also provide paddle boards and bicycles. The Rod & Reel Pier is a short walk away or quick cart trip. Very close to the beaches! We will definitely be returning and rebooking with them! Steve & Dee K

We were greeted as soon as we pulled up by Dan and Goose. They gave us a little tour and from the beginning we were blown away! They thought of everything! We literally had everything we needed without having to run out right away and get any toiletries. They also had a bottle of wine in a cute little basket. They had another cute little basket set up for coffee! We had 3 types of coffee, creamer, sugar, sweet and low, etc. Then I let Goose know prior that we were celebrating our anniversary. They had a bottle of champagne in their fridge with a cute little sign telling us happy anniversary. So sweet! The beds in the cottage are AMAZING!! We have stayed at a lot of places and the beds are just awful. Not the case in the cottage!! After we got the tour inside we went to the best part. The pool and hot tub! OMG, the pics don’t do it justice. It was amazing. And I loved the outdoor shower. That’s where I took all my showers!!! Nice and private. Beautifully landscaped. We took our dog, Bella and we loved how there was always shade so she wasn’t in the direct sun. She lounged on the patio furniture, which is extremely nice. She and I spent every morning out there while I enjoyed my morning coffee. Then the golf cart was a huge bonus! We took it all over. Bella enjoyed early morning rides cruising the island also. We ended up spending a few nights hanging with Dan and Goose. I can’t say enough about them. Amazing people and they will be life long friends now. If you are looking for someplace perfect, this is the place! We cannot wait to go back! More so because we can’t wait to see Dan and Goose. They outdid themselves. We just adore them!!! She also has a very nice and detailed book on the coffee table that tells you EVERYTHING you need to know about things to do, places to see, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. They literally have thought about everything. You won’t be disappointed with Dan, Goose, and Castaway Cottage!!

The cottage was very clean and had some very special personal touches you won’t find anywhere else. Literally all you need to do is pack a swimsuit because they have everything else ready for you. The owners are very accommodating, responsive, and friendly. We had no issues with the property or red tide while we were there and hope to make this our go to place!

What a great stay at Castaway Cottage! We had seen the pictures online, but they didn't do justice to what we discovered on Anna Maria Island! What a gem.
I have to start with the pool! It is so much bigger than it seems online. The whole pool area is so peaceful and welcoming. I tip-toed back there whenever I could!
Biking around Anna Maria was such fun. And of course the golf cart.....
All the amenities were available in the cottage. If you thought of it, they provided it!
Goose and Dan are amazing hosts! They are welcoming. They truly care how your experience is and try to do everything they can to make it an amazing vacation! (Their kitties are pretty sweet too!!)
We hope to return in the future!!!
