Holmes Beach condo description

Sunbow Bay unit #109 , named Bella Vista, is located in Holmes Beach, FL on 7 mile long Anna Maria Island. This is a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath, bayfront condo with exquisite views of Anna Maria Sound. This unit has been updated throughout and is fully equipped with all amenities needed to make your stay a pleasant and memorable experience. The kitchen has new appliances and a utility area with washer and dryer.
This island condo provides you with private, sheltered parking, and is located at the back of the building where it is very private, and quiet. The elevator provides an extra highlight all it's own.The gulf, with its sugary white sand beach and Bermuda-blue waters is a short 5 minute walk, 2 blocks away. The complex offers 2 heated swimming pools, tennis courts, fishing pier, small boat dock, and stunning grounds.Shopping for most needed supplies is conveniently located just across the street and is located with-in a few minutes walk of Anna Maria Island's finest waterfront restaurants. A favorite of mine is, watching sunsets at Holmes Beach Pavillion, sitting at their ocean front cafe, listening to the local artists play . If it's a first visit; you'll get hooked; if it's not, you know what I mean............ you're back again..................

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: I am a person who has been coming to the island for 30 years as a seasonal visitor. My father had a unit above mine for years. I am unable to find a better, more beautiful, laid back environment to enjoy anywhere in the States. It reminds me of a small, quaint, Caribbean island, but without the exorbitant cost factor. The fashion code is casual....... there are no high rises blocking views, no fast food restaurants, people are friendly,and out going, there to help the visitor.I love the wildlife; spending hours with my binoculars. I am safe to walk the beach; no matter what time of day or night. I can't find a more beautiful place to walk for 7 miles; or swim for 1 or 2, in the ocean.Of'course , the bikers are everywhere; and they are safe!! The condo.... I love the location. Very private and serene. View is fabulous....... I call it 'Bella Vista.'

                      Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach:
                      A.M.I., 'Florida's best kept secret,' offers a unique flavor of the 'Old Florida', and yet, is close to all the style and attractions of Sarasota and St. Armand's Circle. Island charm remains consistent and quaint for the entirety of it's 7 miles from tip to toe. 'Paradise without an attitude' is another way of describing A.M.I. The local attire befits the casual , caribbean style ambiance of beach wear, flip flops, beach hats and sunscreen. Oh, and don't forget your binoculars. If you are a nature enthusiast, you will be in your element here; from turtle and seabird nesting sites on the beaches, to the gentle 'sea cows' (manatee), and bottle nose dolphin you are sure to see in and around the Intracoastal Waterways, Bays, or Gulf of Mexico. This is a bird watcher's paradise. I recommend buying a local bird book or guide upon arrival. And of'couse, fishing and kayaking are very popular activities that are sure to please. I can't leave out the dazzling sunrises here, or the golden, caribbean sunsets that are breathtaking. A popular island activity includes witnessing the sunset, camera in hand, listening to a local musician strumming and singing the popular fare,or the caribbean sounds, appetizer and drink close by,watching the seagulls try to steal food.......... very crafty creatures! This is relaxation and therapy for your soul. You are now starting to get into the rhythmn of the island. And be prepared; someone will want to know : How did you hear about Anna Maria Island?

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      I love the privacy here. Being on the Bay, you are totally private. It is centrally located. Everything is close-by. View is spectacular. The elevator is a life-saver.....unit is very comfortable and modern.
