Why Kathy Marshall chose Holmes Beach
We love the "surfside" location of this property. Walking to the beach is easy and convenient. We enjoy the Old Florida Anna Maria Island experience, the cute shops, delicious restaurants, sunset cocktails, and of course the beach! Staying at this home makes it easy to get to all of these destinations.
What makes this House unique
Our family loves being able to walk to the beach and also enjoys the large, fenced in yard with heated pool!

Our family Florida get together
This home is gorgeous! The location is perfect and the supplies that are there are fantastic! The golf cart MADE our week! If you were looking for a kitchen appliance that isn’t there...it s not made! The set up of four bedrooms with separate bathrooms and a common room in between on each floor was great! Each family had space and some privacy and a little quiet if they wanted it! We hope to come back again next year! The only down side was the fees were equal to the cost of the weeks rent, essentially doubling the amount. It’s definately a great place, just wished stay tax and service fees weren’t so high. We re home for a half hour and wish we were back!,
Hi Barbara, Glad you made it home safe, we hope you will come back next year. Thanks so much for your kind review!
Third stay in this fabulous property!
Our family group of 10 stayed for the third time last week. The house is perfect, with lots of space and every amenity. We loved having our own backyard pool with the large deck space, along with bocce ball and beanbag games. And the terrific beach was only steps away. We could load up the beach cart with all the sand toys, life jackets, chairs and the great beach tent for hours of fun on the safe,. clean beach. Management was very responsive, especially when we had some AC issues, which were quickly resolved by Josh! Can't wait to return to wonderful Surfside!
Hi Ann, Thank you so much for your positive review! We are so happy that you had a wonderful vacation and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Perfect family vacation in paradise
Our two families had a great time at this gorgeous place. It’s a beautiful house in a awesome location - only a very short walk from the stunning Holmes Beach with it’s warm and calm Gulf waters and a breathtaking sunset. It’s also just a short car or gulf cart ride from other beaches, shops and restaurants on Anna Maria Island - super convenient.
The house has a beautiful backyard with plenty of seating and a large fenced pool which is great if staying with kids. It’s extremely well equipped with everything you could need from beach equipment, pool toys, outdoor games, beach towels to everything you need in the kitchen and a large grill outside. There’s plenty of space for a large group of friends or 2-3 families. All rooms and bathrooms are also well equipped with tons of towels and toiletries.
The property manager is only a very short ride away and will help you with any questions or anything you need anytime.
We had a wonderful time at Surfside and hope we can be back soon.

Awesome property, awesome people!
We spent a week at Surfside and it was everything we hoped for, everything we were told it would be, and more! We had 8 adults and 3 boys under age 1, so the separate quarters with bathrooms were perfect, the open concept was great for family time, and the pool was great to have so we could "swim" with the boys and then feed them and put them down for naps at our leisure. The proximity to the beach was awesome! All that we needed for the beach and pool were provided! The kitchen had everything down to trash bags, coffee, and spices. The two sets of washers/dryers were very helpful as well. We had rain for a bit almost every day, so we spent a good amount of time indoors. We felt like we were at a five-star hotel! The property managers, Goose and Dan, were only a text away and were so helpful, even telling us their favorite restaurants and activities on the island. We left rested and full of great memories! Awesome property, awesome people!
All of us at the Surfside AMI team are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate the kind words and look forward to seeing you again next year!
Excellent Property and Very Responsive to Your Needs
Wonderful property location only about a 2 minute walk to the beach. Home had everything we needed. Property manager was extremely responsive. We were traveling with a 1 year old and the tray table to the high chair was missing. I notified the property manager and the following morning they had already delivered a brand new high chair. Awesome service!
So glad to hear that you enjoyed your vacation at Surfside AMI! We appreciate your positive feedback and hope you can make it back again soon!
