Imagine spending your vacation in an elegant Mediterranean-style Villa! This lovely elevated home is tucked away on a quiet, dead-end street that's actually in the heart of Holmes Beach. You'll have easy access to beaches, restaurants, and shopping, along with all of the island's other wonderful amenities, from art galleries to dancing to turtle watching!
Everyone in your family will love the ambience inside this beautiful home. Hardwood floors, an open kitchen with colorful Mexican tile backsplash, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, and a big table for meals and games will greet you as you walk in the front door. Just off the kitchen and down some steps is the sunken living room, filled with a big sectional and a flat-panel television. Off the dining area is a large covered patio perfect for al fresco dining.
This main living floor is also home to a small master suite with queen bed and en suite bath, a large laundry room, and one set of stairs leading to the upper floors, and another leading down to the garage and pool area.
And speaking of the pool area, you'll love this one! You'll find a heated pool with waterfall, a gas grill, and plenty of room for the kids to play, all surrounded by lush, tropical landscaping that will remind you you're on an island vacation!
Back in the house and moving upstairs, you'll find two other large bedrooms, each with an en suite bath. The children's bedroom is really a suite featuring its own hallway, a large bathroom with a soaking tub and double sinks, and a sunken room filled with two sets of bunk beds, one that sleeps 3, and the other 2. With a flat-panel tv in the bedroom, this suite is the perfect kids' hideout!
Just around the corner is the master bedroom, which features its own private covered patio, a king-size bed, flat-panel tv, and large walk-in closet, while the large en suite bathroom offers a claw-foot tub, walk-in shower, bidet, and double sinks.
Following the stairs to the very top of the house, you'll find an observation deck that offers glimpses of the surrounding red-tile rooftops, with peeks of the Gulf of Mexico in the distance. This is the perfect spot to capture your childrens' imaginations as they climb the tower (with supervision, of course!) and envision all sorts of adventures! Facing west from the tower, you'll also be able to enjoy some amazing sunsets.
From the top of the tower you'll be able to see how centrally located you are, including super easy access to the beach. Although Anna Maria Island offers seven-and-a-half miles of uninterrupted Gulf-front beaches, lots of people will tell you that the best place to go is the Manatee Public Beach because of its many beachside amenities. Here you'll find a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, an ice cream shop, showers and restrooms, a gift shop, lifeguards, and even live music on some nights. The best news is that a quick walk will take you from your Tuscan-style villa right to that gorgeous white sand and the crystal-clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Sleeps up to 9 people in one king, one queen, and two sets of bunk beds, one with two twins, and the other with a twin on top and a full-size mattress below. One small dog may be considered with a non-refundable fee of $100.
