Holmes Beach house description

Old Florida charm in a completely remodeled house only 1 1/2 short blocks to an uncrowded beach. Ours is a 2 bedroom/2 bath home which sleeps 5. It is the larger 1/2 of a duplex house with exclusive use of the solar heated saltwater pool in the privately fenced backyard. A garage separating both units is also exclusively for our guests.

Anna Maria Island is known for its beautiful sugar white sand beaches. A short walk from the house, down a shaded lane brings you to a wide and uncrowded beach. Beach chairs, towels, a cooler, umbrella and beach cart all are provided for use by our guests.

After a day at the beach, fishing off the local piers or visiting the quaint shops on the island, return home to our tropical backyard oasis to relax around the pool. No need to eat out all the time, you can prepare meals at home in our well equipped kitchen and dine alfresco in our private and shaded yard. Anna Maria Island and neighboring areas also have many fine restaurants and dining is always casual.



Some of the other special features of the house are:
- Solar heated saltwater pool
- Beautiful landscaping front and back
- Stone pavers in the side and backyard for expanded outdoor living space
- Fully equipped and remodeled kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances
- Tile floors throughout
- Remodeled bathrooms with tiled shower/bath areas & granite counter tops
- One and a half short blocks to the beach
- Walking distance to the quaint shops of Anna Maria
- WiFi Internet
- Washer and Dryer
- 2 bicycles for guest use

Anna Maria Island is only 1 hour south of the Tampa Int’l Airport and Busch Gardens Theme Park. It is an easy 2 hour drive to from Disney & Epcot and 20 minutes north of Sarasota. With beautiful white sandy beaches and no crowds, this is the perfect place for families to unwind and relax.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: Your hosts, Kathy and David. For over 20 years we have rented beach houses on the Atlantic coast, in the Caribbean, the Keys and Gulf coast of Florida with our two daughters. When we visited Anna Maria a few years ago, we decided here was the place to have a retreat of our own. We know what a family needs to be comfortable in a vacation home and we make every effort to ensure that you will enjoy your stay with us, as much as we enjoy staying here ourselves. We look forward to sharing our home with you!

                      Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach:
                      We are located on a quite street, a short 5 minute drive to the town center of Holmes Beach and a 10 minute walk to the quaint shops and restaurants in the town of Anna Maria. Approximately half the houses on our street are occupied by year round residents and about half are vacation rentals. In addition to being a quite area, our yard is completely enclosed and surrounded by lush landscaping making for a very private setting. The best reason to stay with us is that we equip the house to be our second home, not a bare bones vacation rental. Bring a few bathing suits and a toothbrush... that's all you'll need when you stay with us.
