  • Beautiful cottage!!!!


    We absolutely loved this adorable cottage!! It was perfect for my my family and the kids had a blast on the screened in Lanai with a pool and spa! The house was perfectly decorated for a beach house and very clean when we arrived! The owner was very easy to get in touch with and had timely responses if we needed anything! Very close to Manasota Beach! We enjoyed the Lock and Key Restaurant and the Sand Bar Tiki Bar restaurant which were also only about ten minute drive away. Would definitely stay here again!

  • Lovely cottage with artistic flair


    We were delighted with the cottage, from the decor, to the comfy beds, the lanai and pool, and the cleanliness. We were a group of 3 women and found it the perfect place for our vacation.

  • A lovely stay at the Pineapple!


    We had such a great vacation at the beautiful Pineapple cottage! Located within quick walking distance of Shady Haven retirement mobile park, it was super convenient for us to visit with my brother and his wife. The lanai with pool was lovely - the neighborhood was super peaceful and safe. Snook's restaurant w/ live music was a very short walk away, as well as the Thursday farmer's market, various restaurants, parks and overall sunshiny Florida fun. The owner was super responsive and the place was spotless and so wonderfully decorated. There were beach chairs, towels, bikes - everything you could want, including Olympic coverage channels on TV! Thank you AC for such a memorable stay - we hope to be back next year!

  • Do you care??


    My husband and I do a lot of travel and have experienced many different hosts . We really appreciate someone who seems genuinely concerned about your enjoyment and not just their money making. That was our experience here. We needed steak knives and she went to the store and bought some. She kept the pool temp higher because of the weather and when I left my vitamins she mailed them as soon as possible. I wish all hosts cared about our time there instead of just their bottom line.
