Holmes Beach house description

The Lazy Gecko is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy all the wonders of Anna Maria. From the private solar-heated salt water pool to the beach chairs and wine glasses, just bring your bathing suits and lotion and get ready to relax. Stroll down beautiful tree-lined White Ave, one of the most beautiful and popular beach access sites on the island - and with the beach just moments away, you'll enjoy a glorious week in paradise.

You’ll find a large flat screen t.v, dvd and free WiFi onsite. With two large bedrooms (Queen bed in one, a full and a twin bed in the other), two full baths and a full size convertible bed, Lazy Gecko comfortably sleeps 7. With a backyard grill and a fully equipped kitchen, feel free to eat at home or enjoy one of Anna Maria’s award winning restaurants.

Sunrise over the bay is a treat and be sure to take the 3 minute stroll to the beach to see our spectacular world-famous sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. Nature abounds and it’s tough to make a visit to Anna Maria without meeting a few egrets, pelicans and dolphins, and if you’re lucky, you’ll even catch sight of a gentle Manatee, the namesake of our local county.

The Lazy Gecko is a tastefully updated, clean and welcoming piece of paradise and we cordially invite you to make it your home away from home year after year.

(This is a two unit complex. The other unit on the property is occupied year round.)

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: I moved to Anna Maria Island in 2008 to celebrate the birth of my son and to be close to family. I fell in love with it and can't think of a more pristine and peaceful place to spend time. We no longer live on the island full time but visit it nearly every weekend (sometimes in our own home and sometimes staying with family.) We're happy to share a piece of our beautiful island paradise with you when we aren't using it.

                  Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach:
                  For over 10 years, my career involved the Surf Industry which took me to many of the most desirable beach locales worldwide. Yet every time I would visit family on Anna Maria, it never ceased to take my breath away - so this is where I chose to land. It's one of the prettiest places I've ever seen and we hope you'll share our love for our little piece of paradise.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Anna Maria is a combination of old Florida, exotic natural beauty and Norman Rockwell community. The people are warm and welcoming and when we stroll over to the beach for sunset we're always joined by neighbors, old friends and new friends. Anna Maria is uniquely cozy and welcoming in a world that sometimes isn't.
