“Paradise without an attitude” is a phrase that has been used to describe Anna Maria Island.
About an hour’s drive south of Tampa, Anna Maria Island is widely recognized as a bit of unspoiled perfection. There are no high rises on the Island – the maximum allowable building height by law is three stories. The chain restaurants have stayed on the mainland, not the Island. The speed limit is never more than 35 mph and the sun shines an average of 361 days a year with an average temperature of 84 degrees. With beach cottages and canal homes, the Island has a relaxed charm reminiscent of the Florida of yesteryear
The seven miles of un-crowded gulf coast beach are perfect for soaking up the sun during the day and watching breath taking sunsets in the evening. For those hankering to drop a line, the island has three fishing piers. There are also fishing charters for the more adventurous.
Dining options on the Island are plentiful with many restaurants offering a picturesque view of the water along with the meal. There are plenty of local shops to explore offering beach supplies, crafts and souvenirs. Visitors can stroll as they search for a memento of their stay made by one of the local artists and artisans.
A free trolley service runs the length of the Island and is a convenient way to get around.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Chris, Steph and the girls are a family from the Toronto area in Canada. We've fallen in love with the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere on Anna Maria Island, and we think you will too.
Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach: Slide open the 12 foot patio doors to the covered lanai, then at the touch of a button, open two large Velux remote venting skylights in the vaulted ceiling and let in all that deliciously fresh island sea breeze. This house opens up to bring in volumes of that Florida sunshine, Gulf breezes and warmth that you traveled so for far to get.

We've hand selected each individual item that went into the house for comfort, quality, and function.
