About Owner

We are a native Toronto, Canada family who fell in love with laid-back Anna Maria Island. Whenever we can get there we love to enjoy the family oriented small beach town feel on the island. Here we get to connect and slow down from busy city life. In our family we have an ocean/beach lover, and a swimming pool lover, and we all enjoy the sun and nature! And Blue Turtle Cottage has it all!Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach: We loved this house because of its proximity to the beach, the private pool and the quiet neighborhood. Everyone who stays at Blue Turtle Cottage agrees that there is something magical about it that is hard to put your finger on.

"My family of 5 visited Anna Maria Island for the first time this month. Our stay at Blue Turtle Cottage was nothing short of amazing! The house had everything we needed, including beach towels, bath towels/wash cloths, a nice beach wagon, beach chairs, sand toys, a cooler, etc. That made packing for our flights so much easier! The house was just the right size for us and was clean and decorated nicely. The pool out back was a huge plus too! It's fenced in and all the pretty trees and plants provide plenty of privacy. The walk to the beach was super easy and only took maybe 2 minutes. Perfect location! Having a washer and dryer was also a huge plus! We hope to stay at Blue Turtle Cottage again next year! Highly recommended! It was wonderful. Source: Google Review"

a little slice heaven

"Our stay at Turtle Cottage is hands down one of the best vacations we've ever had! The house was a perfect size for our family of 5 (kids ages 7, 3, and 1) kitchen equipped with everything we needed, pool felt so good after time on the beach, plenty of goodies in the outdoor shed like pool floats, beach toys and buckets, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, beach umbrella and a large wagon to haul everything plus our 3 kids! Plus, less than a minute walk to the beach for nightly sunsets! The Island is very family friendly, quiet in the evening as everything shuts down at 9pm (even the grocery store), short golf cart ride or walking distance to the shopping center that has an array of restaurants and stores, Publix isn't much further from that, all very close! We only had a golf cart for means of transportation during our stay and we drove it all over AMI, very golf cart friendly there. Gorgeous clear water and white sand, we cannot wait to return! Michele was a dream to work with, very responsive and helpful. Such a lovely week spent at her home!"

Perfect Vacation Spot!

"We had an amazing week at the Blue Turtle Cottage! It is very clean and well appointed. The location is great. It's a Short 2-3 minute walk to the beach as well as the trolley stop. The backyard is a nice private retreat- our kids loved swimming in the pool! This was our first time to AMI and we enjoyed exploring the different areas! This home is centrally located...there are things to the north and south worth visiting. Michelle provided a pleasant booking experience as well. Thank you for a wonderful week with Zero issues!"

First time at AMI

"This precious little house was perfect for our first trip to Anna Maria! Kitchen is small but well appointed - only disappointment was no garbage disposal with kids that are used to one! The pool and all the furniture was great and the owner super responsive! A 2 minute walk to toes in the sand and she made sure we had enough beach chairs for everyone! Little shed had buckets, shovels, umbrella and boogie boards amoung other various beach necessities!"

Loved our first time on AMI

"My family in the Blue Turtle Cottage over New Years and it was everything we hoped it would be. Clean, great location, and lots of pool/beach toys. The shower wasn't draining and Michele responded right away to my e-mail. Charles came to fix it and he was very nice and helpful. We had a great time and will definitely be back!"
