Holmes Beach house description

Anna Maria is a beautiful island with white sand beaches. Mermaid's Cove is perfectly placed in a quiet, residential neighborhood that is a short walk to one of the island's most desired beaches.

Our guests comment on the easy walk to the beach, amenities for families along with loving the huge heated, screened in pool.

We also have the technology that many guests want such as free WIFI, huge flat screen TV, dvd player,entertainment stereo system that is IPOD adaptable, video games and dvd's and 2 TV's in bedrooms with DVD players..

Decorated in Key West coastal style, Mermaid's Cove exudes that island feeling. There are three colorful floors of fun. The top floor has 3 bedrooms, a bathroom with tub and separate shower and laundry room. The Tiki Garden master bedroom offers a cushy new king-sized bed, a 30' television and dvd player, and a loveseat. The surf shack has 2 twins one of the twins can convert to a queen to sleep 3 in that room, The blue lagoon room has a queen that opens to a screened outdoor patio with 2 chairs.

The middle floor boasts new, Brazilian cherry hardwood floors and a gourmet kitchen with a new convection oven and french door refrigerator. The dining room will seat 10 comfortably and has an attached screened patio and bistro set. There is also the fourth bedroom-Sunshine Room with a queen size bed and cable television and dvd player. There is a bathroom with shower on this floor.

Downstairs is a two car garage and the large screened pool. This pool is one of the largest privately owned pools on the island. It is heated in the winter. A short 2 1/2 block walk to a quieter beach that is a local favorite and you can enjoy the natural beauty, then rinse off in the outdoor shower.

Family reunions are our specialty. We can offer several suggestions for traveling with or without children. The island awaits you.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We both grew up in different parts of the country but always spent time at different oceans every year from Florida, Jamaica and California to the Jersey Shore. We knew we wanted to live by the ocean and once we saw this island we fell in love with the lifestyle and beauty of Anna Maria Island. We traded snow for sand and have never looked back. We hope you enjoy a bit of island life, we welcome you to Mermaid's Cove.

                  Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach:
                  We chose the location because of the beautiful beach and relaxed island lifestyle. Also, the area is relaxed and quiet but you are close to activities nearby for shopping or dinner. Also, we chose the beach as it was one of our favorites, more quiet yet gets some gentle surf sometimes too and is great for fishing. Good area for skimming, kayaking and also for surfing when the waves are up.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The beach on 65th street is wonderful. The large, heated, screened pool and patios are fantastic. When the surf is up, it's delightful to sit outside by the pool or go for a night swim and hear the waves and see the many stars at night.
