Holmes Beach cottage description

Nestled in a quiet residential boating community across from prestigious waterfront homes, you'll come across the Lemon Cottage. It's the perfect place to stay to enjoy all that Anna Maria Island has to offer. Lemon Cottage is a short stroll from the white sandy beaches and stunning sunsets of the Gulf coast. Centrally located just over the Manatee Bridge, the beach house is close to shopping, restaurants and the Manatee Public Beach and Beach Cafe.

With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, Lemon Cottage accommodates 4 to 6 people comfortably. The newly renovated open concept cottage is fully equipped with all the amenities you would expect. The property has a large covered lanai, tropical landscaping including mature pink grapefruit, orange, mango and coconut trees and a key lime bush surrounded by lush palms and a heated plunge pool.

The updated master bedroom features a king size bed topped with premium soft 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. The second bedroom has a new versatile twin over queen bunk bed and an ensuite bathroom. To ensure a restful night, we've equipped both bedrooms with new, quality mattresses. You also have a choice of one of two new queen sofa beds - one in the living room and one in the Florida room.

The key feature of this property is the sizable outdoor living space. The large screened lanai has ample room for a comfy seating area, dining table for six and the heated plunge pool.

The house features recently updated furnishings, mattresses, bedding, with a recently updated interior, (remote venting skylights, granite counter tops, flat panel tv's etc.).

Our rates are based on a 7 day minimum Sat-Sat stay.

Car: Not Necessary

“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.

 

Owner info

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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
From initial contact to check out, we want you to have the most positive experience possible. We've hand selected each individual item that went into the house for comfort, quality, and function. This means that you can relax in both comfort and style so that you get the most out of your stay with us.
