Holmes Beach cottage description

We are offering a special! Our rooms are $99 plus taxes and cleaning fee!!!! The sale applies for dates through December 15, 2014.
Our outdoor kitchen is now ready!Thank you to everyone who stayed with us over the last year and helped us reach our goal!

Hello all you vacationers out there. First let me thank you for taking the time to look at the newly renovated 'Marlin'. The Marlin has three units total. Unit 202 is a one bedroom and will sleep four. Unit 204 is a two bedroom one bath and will sleep six. Unit 206 is a two bedroom one bath and will sleep eight. We also have a two bedroom/two bath condo on the bay available for a monthly rental.

More importantly!!!!! it is just steps from the beach!

The building has a large parking area that can accommodate a boat and trailer and both public boat ramps are no more than a 2 minute drive away.

There is also an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, sink and refrigerator and an outdoor sitting area with tables and chairs. We also have a hammock under the trees to relax in as well.

In the front there is a covered area with more chairs so you can get some shade but still be outside enjoying the beautiful island weather. The street The Marlin is on is tucked back in and because it is not a through way and because there is no public parking, the street is hardly traveled and perfect for children.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to call or email.

I look forward to hearing from you and good luck finding the perfect vacation rental for you.

If you are interested, we do have other properties available and I would be happy to try and accommodate parties of any size!

Remember we are listing 331207. Please write that down to view this website again!

We will try and match or work with all vacationers on rates and availability.

Thank you again! Look forward to meeting you soon.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Hello vacationers! My name is Catherine Nigro and my nickname is Cat. I live on beautiful Anna Maria Island and hope that you have the opportunity to at least visit the island. I have lived on Anna Maria for almost ten years now and enjoy the cozy small island feel. It really is a friendly place! So come visit sooner than later! Thanks again for your interest! Cat

                      Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach:
                      When I moved to the island I fell in love with the small town feel. It was nice to walk into the post office, drug store or supermarket and hear 'Hi Cat' with smiles all around! I thought that other people would also enjoy getting to experience the tight knit community. So I set out to design the Marlin to accommodate family reunions or quick getaways. It makes me smile to be able to let someone else enjoy our island paradise. I hope that everyone that stays here will enjoy our island as much as I do and that it will be a yearly stop for many!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      THE BEACH! a few steps and you are there! Then come back up for lunch, shower off in the outdoor shower and be back on the beach in no time at all. In the evenings, grill on the outdoor gas grill or sit and enjoy the night sea air and of course, most importantly don't miss a moment of the sunset. Less exciting but equally important is the Marlin offers free long distance calling, internet, cable TV, washer and dryer and a large parking area that can accommodate a boat and trailer.
