Sea Haze Cottage is a luxurious private beach cottage, that is just perfect for a family or for one or two couples. It has a great room with vaulted ceiling that leads to a large covered porch overlooking the deck, pool, spa and canal. As a ground level home with french doors from both the Living room and the Master bedroom, there is a large continuous indoor and outdoor living space. There are no stairs to climb, just relax.
The cottage is located in the quiet north end of Anna Maria and is only a 2 minute walk to the bay beach and is walking distance to Pine Avenue, the City Pier, and restaurants. You can bicycle to the grocery store if you choose. Sea Haze Cottage is luxurious, yet comfortable and casual. The fully equipped kitchen features granite counters and a butcher block island. There are three bedrooms, a master with french door walkout to the porch and pool and an ensuite bath with pedestal sink and large shower. The guest bedroom features a queen bed, and 2 piece ensuite bath. The third bedroom has twin beds, and also acts as an office. The main bathroom has a bathtub and shower. All bedrooms, living area, and porch are equipped with web enabled HD TV's with cable and Netflix access. The large dining and living area also opens to the porch through french doors where there is a table for al fresco dining a cozy sitting area to curl up with a book, and a bar with a refrigerator, tv and sound bar. The large private deck around the pool, leads to the dock on the canal. The backyard faces west so you can lounge in the afternoon and evening sun around the pool. Our canal is wide and quiet and leads out to Bimini Bay which leads directly out to Tampa Bay. The dock will handle a 24' boat. It's a great spot to sit and fish or just relax and watch the herons and pelicans swoop past. You will RELAX!
I am a retired Canadian from Ontario, who spends his spring, summer and fall in St Andrews, New Brunswick, and my winters now in Anna Maria. My wife Mary and I first visited Anna Maria in 2010, and fell in love with this laid back community on the ocean. I spend 5 months a year here, and make my home available to others when I cannot be here. We wanted a ground level home, for easy indoor and outdoor movement without steps, with a spot for our boat, on a canal, with a pool, and with a west facing private back yard for afternoon and evening sun. We wanted enough space to be comfortable, and to entertain guests, especially with our great outdoor living space at Sea Haze. We are also in a quiet residential neighborhood at the north end of AMI, in the City of Anna Maria. What makes this house unique There are many rentals, some very nice ones, available on Anna Maria, but this isn't a rental. This is our home. You will see and feel that Sea Haze is special, the moment you step foot in Sea Haze Cottage. I am only making it available when I or friends cannot be here.

Sea Haze Cottage is perfect! We spent 8 days in this gorgeous place in October. As other reviewers have said the place is immaculate and so beautifully designed; beds are comfy and whole living space perfect; and out back you have the perfect space: great outdoor seating, the bar, a beautiful pool with lounge chairs to sit in the sun and paddle your feet in the shallow end and a hot tub that delivers a proper hot tub experience on starry nights. Plus the beautiful setting on a lovely canal to watch the birds and the jumping fish. I hired a kayak for the week and had an amazing time paddling around Bimini Bay (the floating piece of the dock made it easy peasy to get in the kayak and paddle away). The house is in a great spot at the quiet north end of the island, you can walk to the bay pier and restaurants in 5 mins and to the gulf beach in another 10; the Waterfront and Sandbar restaurants were both fab. Mark is a great host; he sorted a problem with the heat pump for the hot tub quickly and made sure we were having a great time - appreciate all your help Mark and Mary thanks for helping us have an amazing time in Anna Maria; we want to come back too!

We arrived at Anna Maria 3 weeks after Irma - prior we were understandably nervous but Mark was brilliant and kept us frequently informed - prior to our arrival he came down from Canada and made sure their home was ready for us - neighbours said he worked hard at tidy up etc. - we arrived to a spotless property and a fridge full of food and much drink (much appreciated after a long trip from UK) - guest information pack was the most detailed we have ever experienced - facilities were so first class we considered never leaving - all that and a last night watching a spectacular sunset and great meal at Sandbar Restaurant made us commit to coming back next year to our dream home from home - Mark and Mary you are brilliant - thank you David & Jenny

We just spent a week in the Sea Haze cottage and couldn't be happier. Very nice house with a great porch/bar and nice pool in the back. Mark and Mary has prepared everything so well in order to truly make it feel like a home away from home. We hope to come back to wonderful Anna Maria Island and will try to stay at this house again. Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Anna Maria Island! The Sea Haze Cottage was very comfortable and we felt right at home! The cottage was very well kept and had everything we needed for our stay! The pool was refreshing and the perfect place to relax! The island is beautiful with warm crystal clear water, soft white sand beaches, and amazing sunsets! We will definitely be back next year!!!

We had a wonderful family vacation in this very cozy beach home! A short walk to the bay each morning was a perfect way to start the day. We rode bikes over to the beach and enjoyed the sand and beautiful crystal clear Gulf of Mexico. We've been visiting Anna Maria Island for 25+ years and we have rented this home for the last couple of years. We have 3 children and it's the perfect size:). There's a dock that fits a boat up to 25ft and coming in and out of the canal is very easy. Mark is quick to respond to any needs or questions about the home. I highly recommend!!!

We loved our week at this beautiful home!! the pictures don't do justice to how perfect this house is!! the details in the decorating, the amenities... this house has it all!! Everything was in perfect working order and the home was extremely clean and well furnished. Mary and Mark were easy to communicate with and their customer service was superb. The back area of the home is so relaxing and beautiful. We enjoyed every evening outside!!! This was our 4th year visiting Anna Maria Island and we have stayed in some amazing homes. We typically like to try a different home in a different area every year. However, we all agreed that we would LOVE to stay at Sea Haze next year!!! It was the perfect house for our little family!! Thank you so much for a wonderful week!!

Our family of 4 enjoyed out first trip to AMI. This house has everything you need! The backyard is amazing with pool, hot tub, bar, plenty of chaise chairs, tv and right on the canal. Our boys enjoyed fishing off dock and using SUP. Closer to Tampa Bay side of island but with bikes you can be at the Gulf side in minutes. We never had an issue and never had to call the owner/Mgr. Very clean...and I am picky. We will definitely stay at Sea Haze again!!

We are a family of 4 with almost teenage age kids. This property was perfect for our needs. The fact that the property has a keypad and we did not need to collect keys from somewhere was great. The kitchen is really well stocked and even has spices, some coffee, sugar and other items in the cupboards. Lots of plates,glassware,pots,cutlery etc. Air con is great. There are tvs in all rooms, which the kids enjoyed, not having that at home. Laundry machines were brilliant and there were machine machine pods already there. The pool is lovely and the covered porch is ideal for reading or chatting or enjoying the view. My husband fished (successfully) from the dock most days. There is a paddle board, although it might be useful to add a buoyancy aid at some stage. There is a very good selection of beach gear including Tommy Bahamas chairs, wagon and umbrella. We also used the 2 bikes available and hired 2 others - this was a great way of getting around the island. The property was very clean. Communication with both the owner Mark and the manager Scott was easy. A few wee queries we had were sorted out quickly and easily.
So, thanks Mark, we had a lovely time and hope to be back in the future!

We absolutely loved the house! It was decorated nicely, the perfect size for our family and close to everything! We enjoyed having the pool to hang out in the afternoon and evening after spending the day at the beach....and loved sitting out on the dock to drink our coffee in the morning!
Everyone loved the paddle boarding in the Bay...and the bikes were perfect for getting to and from the beach!!
We were sad to have to leave...and definitely look forward to staying again!

Family of four had a great time. House was beautiful and the outdoor space was perfect for fishing, enjoying coffee, and spending late afternoons in the pool. Hope to come back in the future!
