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.
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 enjoy sharing 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.
