You won't want to leave our cute and cozy gulf front cottage, which we've named 'Can't Wait'....
We are 'right on the sand' as they say, but also walking distance to shopping, restaurants and more. Our home is a ground level cottage, located on a quiet street with a wonderful sunporch. You won't believe the views... whether it's first thing in the morning or at sunset.
Our deck by the beach is one of the favorite amenities of 'Can't Wait'. It's a great place to have your morning coffee, watch the dolphins swim by or the beachwalkers stroll by or celebrate the end of the day sunset.
You will find all the conviences of home. We usually spend the 6 weeks at our cottage in the fall. So, we have a well stocked kitchen with microwave, dishwasher and icemaker, a propane gas grill (propane guest's responsiblity), a washer and dryer, highspeed wireless internet and unlimited long distance (US & Canada).
Two of the best restaurants in Florida are within walking distance - a great little German place owned by German immigrants and a wonderful sushi restaurant. We are also just a short walk down the beach to 'Cafe on the Beach', which is where we go for our traditional first breakfast on Anna Maria.
So come and enjoy the sounds of the surf, the sand in your feet and the wonderful Florida sun, in our wonderful beachfront cottage. 7 night minimum stay.

About: Tom and I live in beautiful Northern Michigan. We love spring, summer and fall in Michigan and enjoy gardening, boating, long walks and travel. Tom is a University of Michigan Grad and Bonnie is a Michigan State University Grad so football and basketball seasons are a lot of fun.
Why Holmes Beach: We were visiting friends in Florida, and Tom was training for a marathon, the last thing we thought we would do was buy a vacation home. But we looked at the real estate magazines and went out for 1/2 a day with Lisa our realtor, and fell in love with 'Can't Wait' and Anna Maria. We have never regretted our quick decision to buy a piece of paradise.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We always walk down to Cafe on the Beach at the County Park the first morning we are there. We enjoy eating outside on the beach and the casual atmosphere. We also spend a lot of time on our deck by the water enjoying a couple of cocktails while watching the amazing sunsets.
We love that we are walking distance to the Publix grocery store and 5 or 6 great restaurants - including the best German restaurant outside of Germany and the best Sushi Bar in Southwest Florida.
We rarely have to get in the car, once we park it in our driveway.
