Holmes Beach house description

'Feel the Charm of an Old-Style Florida Beach'

Beach Charm is a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom family home nestled on a quiet, dead-end street on Anna Maria Island and is situated just steps to the sugar white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Located in the city of Holmes Beach, this ground level home sleeps 6 comfortably and features central air conditioning, private yard with tropical landscaping, owners’ suite with attached bath, updated kitchen with modern appliances, beach equipment, and an outside shower, to name just a few. Beach Charm is old-school Florida, where you don't need to worry about tracking in a little sand, it just sweeps right back out!

Let the kids chill out in the ‘Surf Shack’ bedroom, especially designed & decorated with the kids (both large & small!) in mind. Two additional bedrooms, including the owners’ suite, feature tropical coastal décor and Queen beds. The cottage is bright and open with plenty of windows to let in natural light. There is a spacious dining area with seating for 6, including a booth for the kids to enjoy. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge and ice-maker, electric stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, utensils, dishes, cutlery, crockpot & more! Other amenities include in-unit washer & dryer, DVD and book library, Flat screen TV with expanded cable in living room, master suite, bedroom & the 'Surf Shack', DVD/VCR, Both a Gas Grill & Charcoal Grill for your use, and Wi-Fi/High Speed Internet, all linens & kitchen items included. Family friendly.

Beach Charm is a ground level bungalow with minimal steps and no stairs to navigate, making it accessible for seniors or those with mobility impairments. Please ask owner for further details.

Step out the front door and a less than 5-minute walk down 50th Street you will plant your toes in the sugary sands of Holmes Beach. We are located where the island is narrow so you can enjoy both sides of the island without any effort! Easy walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The FREE Island Trolley stops at the end of the street, going both North AND South, just 2 houses away, for a short trip along the island route.







About Anna Maria Island:
What was once a best-kept secret among Florida day-trippers, Anna Maria Island, has always been known for its sugar-white coastline, emerald Gulf waters and quaint business districts. Today, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'…Anna Maria Island, Florida.

Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset on the Gulf of Mexico without ever having to leave the island. And, unlike other popular Florida cities with their theme parks and water slides, there are no lines on Anna Maria Island, this is old school Florida.

You can always find so much to do on Anna Maria Island, located on the Gulf Coast of Florida with easy access from Tampa and Sarasota Airports. A seven mile long and one mile wide stretch of white sand beach, with an average annual temperature of over 80 degrees, it truly is a paradise! Anna Maria Island is broken up into 3 Cities - Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach and Anna Maria, and can be toured by the free Trolley!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: I am a full time resident of the Savannah GA area, and when I vacationed on Anna Maria it was time to own a little piece of paradise. I plan to retire here!

                  Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach:
                  After falling in love with Anna Maria Island, just couldn't wait to buy our own piece of paradise. This property is perfect for friends and family. I enjoy sharing my beach home with family and friends, both old and new. I look forward to having you as my guests.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  In less than 5 minutes you can step out our door and plant your feet in the sugar white sand of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Shops are close by and the neighborhood is kid friendly with a lot of warm and friendly neighbors.
