We have never been to AMI before and we are already talking about when we can come back! The cottage has so much to offer from being close by to shopping, food, the pier and beach. The location is amazing because you can watch the sunrise and sunset perfectly from the porch! Our family rented the cottage and bungalow for a week and it was the perfect amount of space for us all. The cute historic charm of this place really is amazing! The outside was truly the hit for us and where we spent majority of our time when we weren’t on the beach! The pool and hot tub is the perfect spot and it has such a private feeling to the yard. The house was SO clean and had more than enough towels, beach towels, and much more. Carla was very helpful and awesome to work with! We can’t wait to come back!

I could've stayed at the cottage my whole vacation and been happy. The yard with the pool, hot tub and shower was awesome and the inside of the house, so cute!! I didn't stay in the house though because there were so many things to do all within walking distance; the pier, the beach, so many shops. I've been to AMI many times and this has been my favorite placed I've stayed so far!! I highly recommend this place and the owners who are really just great!

I’ve stayed in the sweet bungalow my last four visits to AMI! Carla is so easy and pleasant to work with! She is attentive, accommodating and always will to help if needed.
The best part of this bungalow (besides the adorable layout and decor!) is the location! One block to the bay and four blocks to the beach. Making it easy to watch both the sunrise and sunset on same day. It offers bikes, a kayak, ping pong, fishing poles, a pool, plenty of beach items too! All I need to pack is my swimsuit!
I have another trip at the end of the year and of course, I’m heading back to Naut 2 Shabby - my perfect little AMI getaway!

We just arrived home from Naut 2 Shabby a few days ago and I miss it already!! What an amazing place to stay. So many awesome amenities right at your fingertips. We could walk to restaurants, the convenient store, shopping, the pier, the beach or to get ice cream. So many things so close. Location is just perfect. Kayaks and bikes were also a huge hit with my family. The house has everything you may need. So clean and fully equipped !! The owner was so amazing, went out of her way to make us feel at home. Easy to contact with quick responses.
Definitely will be back. Highly recommended.

The Naut 2 Shabby Cottage is the perfect location for your quiet beach get away. The location is perfect, the private pool and hot tub are awesome, and the entire cottage is absolutely charming. We had a great time bicycling to Bean Point and the Rod & Reel Pier, kayaking, and listening to the chimes from the church while relaxing on the front porch. The cottage is stocked with everything you can possibly need and has convenient parking. The owners are wonderful and responsive to any questions that you might have. We loved our stay so much that we have already booked our next visit.

I stayed at this beautiful home for a week with my daughter and 11 year old twin grandchildren. It was even better than we had anticipated. While it is described as a "cottage", it is definitely a nice sized home with more than enough sleeping space for 6-7 people. It is very well laid-out and furnishings and decorations are beautiful. The pool (with a basketball goal!) and hot tub in the tropical backyard was the selling point for us when choosing a rental. The cottage was very well stocked with all the comforts of home -- lots of clean towels, extra pillows, dishes and kitchen appliances, washer/dryer and even extra sun hats! Everything we needed was within walking distance -- beach, shops, and restaurants. The Bungalow in back of the cottage was rented by a family member and they had the same fantastic experience we enjoyed. We had a couple of friends who live about two hours away join us for a day at the beach. They also fell in love with the cottage and bungalow and will be renting it in the future for a short "getaway" at the beach even though they live in Florida. The owner is so nice to work with. She provided all the information we needed prior to our arrival but responded promptly to any questions we had after our arrival. She stayed in touch with us before, during and after our visit. Thank you, Carla, for this much needed respite for my family during this very trying, uncertain time.

Naut 2 Cottage is such an amazing place to stay and the location couldn't be any better, especially with the available bicycles, kayak on site. You have a personal driveway to park your vehicles. The bicycles can get you anywhere in minutes. Easy access to the pier or to the ocean. The cottage has such charm, from the outside front porch where you can sit and watch people and enjoy the sounds & views. The back yard has great landscaping with a beautiful pool and hot tub. The back yard has plenty of chairs available to use and plenty of places to sit for sunshine and shade.
You can also use the radio provided in the cottage to play music with outside speakers in the backyard while you swim and relax in the hot tub or pool. Inside is exceptionally clean and comfortable. All the appliances are included. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. Even has a few kitchen drawers of misc items that you might forget to pack for vacation.
The indoor front porch is where you can enjoy a perfect breakfast or dinner with sounds of the wonderful church and it's chimes that plays throughout the day. This is the perfect location to visit ice cream, coffee shops, and places to have a great dinner.
This location is perfect to walk in minutes to watch the sunrise and sunset. Anna Maria city Pier is perfect for the sunrise and Sandbar for sunsets. I will definitely stay at this wonderful place again..

This place is a MUST to stay at! It’s location on pine ave is great as well. Walking distance to all the stores, food, and even the beach. Perfect getaway!

We spent a few days before Christmas at Naut 2 Shabby. We had the best time and didn’t want to leave. We loved the heated pool and hot tub. It was super clean and my kids had the best time with the basketball hoop. It is in the perfect location. We walked the shops on pine, walked to the pier and along the path to the small park for picnics. Rented a golf cart to explore the island, go the few minutes to the beach, the grocery, and to the fresh seafood market (which we did everyday!) The cottage had everything we needed to cook for our family of 6 or there are many great restaurants near by. The only downside I can even think of is maybe that the washer and dryer are located in a pool house and not in the main house. We loved it and will definitely be back!

5 Star Naut 2 Shabby Cottage has so much to offer. Prime location on Pine Ave, located next to Hometown Desserts; I highly recommend their peanut butter cookies! Use one of the generously included bicycles to easily bike to nearby restaurants and piers or rent a gas powered golf cart from Beach Bums to get around the Emerald coastline and beautiful white sandy beaches.
Once you are ready to relax, Naut 2 Shabby is perfect for any family. Our family of 6 stayed in the 3 bedroom 2 full bath cottage and never felt crowded. The owner included all the amenities you could possibly want in your home away from home, from the hairdryer, beach bag and towels and even kitchen spices. Don’t worry, if you did forget something you will find everything you need just a few doors down at AMI’s General Store.
Make sure you stock up at the store because you may never leave the cottage once you see the backyard oasis. With soft artificial turf that is always cool and comfortable on your bare feet, to the saltwater pool that is perfectly warm. The owners included rafts, noodles, a basketball hoop, enough lounge chairs for everyone, surround sound speakers, a grill, and beautiful overhead lighting throughout the palms really make it majestic at night. Wow, is this dream, this is Naut 2 Shabby!
