Holmes Beach house description

STYLE, EASE, and COMFORT -- This one-level (NO STAIRS) duplex home, was completely redone in 2011 with a “beachy” theme and an updated, well-equipped kitchen (stainless steel appliances and granite counters). The King Master Bedroom (with en suite bathroom), Queen Guest Room, and Twin Bedroom provide comfortable sleeping for 6 guests.

LOVE THAT BEACH -- Less than a 2 minute walk to the white sand beaches of the Gulf and just a short walk to Publix, drugstores, restaurants, and the Free Trolley stops, you will find everything you might need without ever having to get in a car.

NEED A BEACH BREAK? -- Relax in the fenced-in, private backyard with your own (not shared) heated pool. The waterfall, swim-up seating area, and sun-shelf wading area add to the ambience of the lushly landscaped backyard, with gas grill and outdoor patio seating.

FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT -- You’ll be entertained and connected with the 3 flat-screen TVs, DVD, and Wi-Fi. The private garage stores your beach cart, beach umbrella and sand toys, as well as 2 bicycles for your island adventures.

              Car: Not Necessary

              Holmes Beach, Florida, a laid-back piece of 'Old Flolrida', steps from the lovely Gulf Beaches. Enjoy the heated private pool, beachcombing on the soft white sand, fascinating wildlife (the entire island is a bird sanctuary, sea turtles nest on the beach, and dolphins play in the bay and gulf), unique restaurants (no fast food on-island), bicycling, fishing, fun shopping, island theater, music, and proximity to larger venues in Tampa, Sarasota, and Orlando Theme Parks.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: We’re just two lifelong New Englanders who, after 45 years of owning a family business and raising 4 children, are looking forward to a time when we can fully enjoy the blessings of family, health, and resources that God has given us, and do that in a little piece of His paradise. We love every season on AMI, so we come down as often as possible, but hope to become true “snowbirds” in a few years.

              Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach:
              Parents of 4 sons, and grandparents of six beautiful granddaughters, we wanted a place to lure everyone away for lasting family memories. Like most people, we fell in love with Anna Maria Island on our first visit, and by the second, we were looking for our own home. We actually have two homes so we can spread out when we’re all together, and Palms Beach House West is perfect for one of our son's family of five. The total family gatherings are rare, so in the meantime, we are happy to share this great vacation retreat with other families and couples visiting AMI.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Location, location, location – literally steps (200) from the beautiful Gulf beach and easy walking distance to Publix, drugstores, and restaurants. From the nearby Free Trolley stop, you can cover the entire island, from Bean Point in Anna Maria to Coquina Beach, enjoying the unique character of each section of the island.
