Holmes Beach house description

The Lazy Gecko was completely renovated in 2014, so the paint is barely dry on this beautiful beach getaway. We added a brand new private pool and patio complete with loungers and even a sleepy hammock swinging beneath towering palms. The Gecko is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy all the wonders of Anna Maria. There’s a coffee maker, blow dryers, wine glasses, a beach wagon and beach towels, just for starters. You need only to bring your bathing suits and lotion and get ready to relax. 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. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and full ensuite bathroom. The second (spacious) bedroom has two twin beds with access to the full bath in the hallway. There is a brand new queen size convertible bed with an extra memory foam mattress top in the livingroom (so it’s actually comfortable!) The Lazy Gecko comfortably sleeps 6. With a backyard grill and a fully equipped and newly renovated 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 5 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.

The house is located at 408 Clark Lane, Holmes Beach, FL 34217.

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

                  Year Purchased: 2014

                  About the owner: We are Alice and Denny - highschool sweethearts from the Midwest. We were married as teenagers, raised 4 children who gave us a gaggle of grandchildren, and both had careers that allowed us to travel quite extensively. Once we discovered Anna Maria, however, we learned there is no place better, so we just stayed. We have built or renovated every home we’ve lived in ourselves, and the Lazy Gecko is no different. We renovated it with the same careful attention we’ve given to all of our homes over the years and we hope you’ll appreciate all the little touches. Two of our children live nearby and help us with managing the Lazy Gecko. And our son-in-law Kevin sometimes helps with email and phone responses. It’s a family affair…

                  Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach:
                  We moved to Anna Maria in the fall of 1999 to provide a safe and supportive community for our son, a Marine who was disabled in the first Gulf War. Coming from the Midwest, Anna Maria seemed like Paradise… and it turned out to be just that. We purchased the Lazy Gecko for Christian to live in one half and to share the other half with visitors who are fortunate enough to discover this beautiful little island. Alice and I still live on the north end of the island, so we’re close enough to address any concerns of our guests, and Christian is right next door.

                  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.
