About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, heated pool, Beach views - sleeps 6

Need a full recharge during your beach vacation?

Try our two-bedroom condo on Anna Maria Island. Here, you’ll find the calm hush of island life without chain restaurants or towering hotels to block your glimpses of the glittering, turquoise Gulf of Mexico. And thanks to three walls of windows, our condo’s rooms are treated to light from sunrise to sunset + the soothing sound of the waves crashing on the beach!

We took care to ensure our condo matches the understated, relaxed beach town vibe of Anna Maria Island. After a recent renovation, we’re ready to welcome you with cheerful, contemporary upgrades like new floors, countertops and furniture, and pops of Gulf-inspired color that make our place feel less “hotel” and more like “home.”

Spend the day lazing on the beach, which is just a one-minute walk from the condo across a quiet street (Holmes Beach access is located at 34th Street, and so are we!). You won’t have to rush to claim a slice of sand—the beach is often pleasantly uncrowded, even during peak months.

Then, back at the condo, plenty of evening amenities await, including a large heated pool with lounge chairs, TVs with DVD players in the unit for a family movie night, and a rooftop deck with a perfect vantage point for peeping brilliant sunsets. (The rooftop terrace and pool are shared with the building’s three other units, but are never crowded.)

A fully stocked kitchen makes whipping up a meal a breeze, and there’s plenty of space to serve it at our six-person dining table. Plus, there’s a bar with stools and a breakfast nook—both great spots to enjoy a stack of morning pancakes.

Want a place to sip a mug of coffee (or glass of wine before bed) in your PJs? The breezy lanai, attached to the master bedroom, is the perfect spot. There’s a private bath for the master, as well. A second bedroom sleeps up to three guests, with one twin bed and one queen.

The living area sofa pulls out into a couch to accommodate another guest. A total of six people can sleep here comfortably.

Please note: we have been managing this rental since October 2013. Any reviews previous to that date don’t reflect the current state of our condo, which is kept to our high standards.

We hope to see you soon—get in touch today to book your dates.

And good news! If your desired period is booked we also have another unit next door. It has a very similar feel and an identical layout. Look at our sister listing VRBO #217357/HomeAway #211902 for more inspiration!

About Tomas and Marie

Marie was an exchange student in Ohio over 30 years ago. She's visited USA several times per year ever since and considers it to be her second home country.

Tomas had never been to the US before visiting it with me, but he just loves the area!

Tomas and Marie purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tomas and Marie chose Holmes Beach

It is spacious and bright with a unique location and in a very calm area. So close to both the beach and all the amenities of Anna Maria Island, while still in a very quiet neighborhood.

What makes this condo unique

There isn't a better located unit on AMI. You can walk to shopping as well as the beach. Its great to come off the beach and go to the pool or just enjoy what Anna Maria Island has to offer.

We also own the next-door unit, so you can rent both if you are two families traveling together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation this year at your condo. We've been vacationing on AMI for over 30 years but this year we especially loved our stay for many reasons.

The location of the condo is ieal with just a very short walk down a sandy beach road and there it is..the most beautiful beach ever, so close we could go bak and forth to pick up drinks for the beach or lunch in just minutes.

The condo itself is very clean, spacious and comfortable, a largebright kitchen well equiped with everything one needs to feel at home. The TV's have "millions" of channels which we enjoyed in the living room and bedroom.

Both bedrooms are roomy..the very large master bedroom has a "beachy" theme with an exceptionally comfortable king size bed.

We loved spending time in the sunroom which had a great view of the Gulf.

The pool area is pretty and well maintained with both shade area and sunning area..never busy when we were there. Many days w were the only one's at the pool..nice and private. The rooftop deck is especially great to watch sunsets..we took some beautiful photos.

Thank you for making sure our vacation was memorable.

Quaint beach condo with great location

  • 4 of 5

Despite cold Florida temps the week we visited, we still really enjoyed this beach condo. The heated pool was a huge plus as my daughter and husband went swimming despite the cold temps. We loved how cozy the condo was and truly felt right at home. The location to beach, grocery, restaurants, and trolley stop were just perfect. Hoping to stay there again and maybe be able to soak up more sun on the upper deck next time!

Very clean and comfortable and loved that it was so close to beach!

  • 4 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay and we found some great restaurants we hadn't eaten at this time in Anna Maria area. Too bad someone had to build in the view of the beach but thankfully you have the roof top seating so you can still enjoy the sunsets!

Great to have the pool to use after a long day at the beach with sand and salty feeling and that the folks who stayed ahead of us left 4 chairs and an umbrella so we got another umbrella and were set for the week. We paid it forward also and left a nice cooler the next people to use! Would recommend your place with no hesitation!!

Tropical Sunset #1 is such a perfect condo. It is right across the street from beach access, yet you are not directly in the hustle and bustle of the main beach. If you like the action, don't worry. The main beach is about a 2-3 minute walk away. Shopping is right behind the condo, and restaurants are not too far either. You could probably stay here and not need a rental car.

The condo itself is beautiful. The exterior is very well maintained. It is a very spacious 2 bedroom 2 bath. We stayed here with our 2 boys (21 and 17) and never felt cramped. The decor is very simple and gives you the beach vibes. I cooked in the spacious kitchen quite a few times.

We had an issue with a clogged shower. I contacted management and they had it repaired within a few hours. They also called to follow up afterward which I appreciated.

I really can't say enough about Tropical Sunset #1. If we stay in AMI again, we would love to rent this condo again.

two wonderful weeks

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the third time in AMI but it was our first visit in tropical sunset. This was absolutely the best one we had! With the first footstep in Marie and Tomas condo we feel like home. The condo is perfect equipped with a lot of nice furniture. It has enough space for up to 5 people. The cleanness was 5-Star worth! The rooftop for chilling into the sunset is amazing. We rented bicycles for the time of our stay and could made almost everything without using the car. Coming back for sure !!!

Month of paradiseg

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in AMI and we were delightfully surprised when we saw our condo. Only steps to the beach and away from the public beach area. That was perfect for us! The condo was very clean, spacious, and offered everything We could have needed for our stay. We spent a month and didn't want to leave! Marie was most gracious, asked for our feedback and when offered, she immediately replaced some small items I mentioned in need of replacement. The pool was a welcome change from the salt and ocean at the end of the day. Loved going on the rooftop to take the extraordinary sunsets. We thoroughly loved our time and can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Cyndie, it was a delight to have you staying in our condo! Yes, the beach is so near, but never crowded. If one wants to be where the "action" is with lifeguards, beach chair rentals, restaurants, beach volleyball courts and a small childrens playground - you walk an easy 500 yards to the north.

This is our 3rd year staying in Marie and Tomas's condo! The location is perfect! Steps to the beach and you can see the ocean from the large window in the living area. The condo always spotless and equipped with everything you will need. Always great communication with Marie and Tomas!! I am already looking at the calendar for my next trip! Love AMI!

Owner's Response: Dear Amy and Jason, thank you for your nice review! We look forward to having you back, hopefully there will have been some upgrades to the condo by then. It's always hard to keep oneself from updating things every time we go over! :-) Welcome back! Marie and Tomas
