“Exactly what we wanted”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

We chose this placed based on all the reader reviews on this site, so had a pretty good idea going in what would be the good points, and if any, the bad. I thought the location was great....close to grocery store...perfect beach area that was not very crowded at all. We stayed in the Bamboo cottage, which was exactly as the pics on their website presented it. The beach is kind-of visible from the windows or balcony....you have to look through and around the largest building on the property to see it. The cottage is basically on the main road, with the door and balcony facing the opposite way. We never heard any traffic while in the unit. Jeff and Eric were very kind and helpful whenever needed. The place does not offer daily maid service, so a week there with 3 kids ends up leaving lots of sand and debris in the unit. I did not find out until the last day that I could have asked for the use of cleaning products and a sweeper. The cottage was clean and had most of the basic kitchen needs.....wine glasses, coffee maker, utensils. It's cooled by 2 wall/window style AC units, which run non-stop due to the summer heat. That did not bother us at all. The bathroom does not have it's own AC, so it tends to get warm while in there for showering. The sofa is a sleeper sofa for the kids, and a local company delivered a crib for $35 for the week. We arrived late, and they made easy arrangements for us. They have a huge box of beach toys for the kids....rafts, boogie boards, etc. There are also some spare drink coolers and umbrellas. There are more then enough chairs and lounges, so one doesn't need to rush out early and stake out their "turf" for the day. They have 2 newer gas grills for cooking and charcoal grills as well. We are already planning on returning next summer.....and this is the first time I have ever returned to the same place 2 years in a row.....so there's hardly higher praise!

Room Tip: Some of their units are on the other side of the street.

On our first trip to Anna Maria this past spring my husband and i booked 3 days at Cedar Cove which looked lovely online but was extraordinary in person. The rooms were very clean the staff is enchanting and willing to go out of their way to make our stay perfect. We stayed elsewhere about 1 1/2 mos. ago and it was a disaster!!! So we are back for another short visit and will not go elsewhere. Eric and Jeff make this little treasure a joy to stay at and feel like you have friends looking after you. Thanks again Sam and Laura

Room Tip: Rooms on the beach side are a little quieter if you bring children.

Cedar Cove is a nice family spot that reminds us of the small seaside villages of the New Jersey Shore - albeit with cleaner beaches and nicer weather. If you are looking for big hotel, sterile experience this is not your place. But if you want a lovely little resort area where you can walk to the nice beach, sit and watch great sunsets, relax, go shelling and swiming - then this is the place where you want to be staying.

We stayed in the Bamboo Suite which is a bit back from the beach but with a good view from the deck. Comfortable layout - bring what you need (including papertowels and napkins).

Both Eric and Jeff are ready to make you comfortable and help you select great places for eating and activities (they provide a list when you check-in and it is spot-on).

Anna Maria Island is fun and laidback. A really great place.

This was our first stay at Cedar Cove, although our 10th trip to Anna Maria Island. We had the Palms Penthouse for five days, which was beautiful and furnished with everything we could ask for, other than extra pillows which were immediately delivered by Jeff. We had two beautiful bathrooms and the kitchen was large and well equipped with everything we needed. Both Eric and Jeff were very friendly and gracious hosts - no matter where they saw us on the property it was always "Hello Bill, Hello Paula!". Loved all the little touches of landscaping, fountains and signs. Even though we were there during Tropical Storm Debby, we were very relaxed and enjoyed our nice patio above the palm trees with the perfect gulf view. We'll definitely put Cedar Cove at the top of our list after staying 9 times at Bungalow Beach Resort and The Colony (now closed) in Longboat. The property is beautiful, the staff welcoming and friendly and our "suite" couldn't be beat.

Room Tip: Be forewarned - there is no pool! But who needs it with the beautiful gulf!

In July we stayed in the Bamboo suite. A nice one bedroom suite. Location is phenominal with easy and close access to the beach. The suite was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. No separate pool. Bring everything you need like paper towels, coffee and filters and if you don't like low end bath towels, bring your better ones from home.

Stayed in the Key Lime suite 3 nights. We couldn't have asked for more, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths sitting room and full kitchen. When we checked in Jeff walked across the street with us and showed us around the suite. Would highly recomend Cedar Cove Resort and the Key Lime suite to anyone looking for a piece of paradise.

Room Tip: Don't worry about it being across the street from beach, very short walk.
