Holmes Beach cottage description

This designer decorated 1 bedroom, 1 bath is a ground floor cottage. The cottage is 30 steps from the beautiful emerald green gulf beaches. You will enjoy beach views from every room. Park your car next to the cottage and walk right in. The covered veranda offers a great breeze, beautiful views and sounds of the waves coming ashore. Eat outside on the veranda if you wish. At the beach, relax on a bench under a large shade tree allowing you to get out of the sun at any time and still be on the beach.
Night or day, there is always a breeze and the sounds of the waves heard from the cottage. One house from the beach!

                  On the island you can shop, go antiquing, bike ride, golf, fish, sail, kayak, snorkel, dive, boat ride and much more. Or just walk the beautiful beaches hunting for a variety of shells. St. Armand Circle and Longboat Key are 10-20 minutes away. A very large outlet mall is less that 30 minutes away. Ice skating is next to the outlet. The world famous Skyway Bridge is visible from the island and only 15 minutes away. Professional baseball is minutes away with the Pittsburgh Pirates & Devil Rays. The Yankees winter training is in Tampa. Nearby, Orlando boasts Disney World, Epcot, animal Kingdom, Sea World and Universal Studios. Three of the top airports in the country are Sarasota, Tampa, and Orlando. Our guests come from all over the world and many from Florida. Most repeat with us year after year. I think you will see why!

                  Other Activities: shell hunting, jogging, kayaking, gift shops, discount outlet mall
