About the Property

Duplex, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Anna Maria Island is just off Bradenton and a lovely island with a great beach. Our island has very few condos (no high risers) - it is more a laid-back atmosphere. The only fast food is a Domino's pizza take-out. But the food on the island is great.

Our duplex is just steps to the beach and recently remodeled (Sept, 2010). The master bedroom has a king bed with tv & private bath with large shower. Second bedroom has a queen bed. Second bedroom would use the hall bath which has a shower also.

Large-screen tv in living area. The living and kitchen area (fully equipped) are open and airy. All the flooring is tile.

There is a deck along the side of the house and small deck in back to make walking from outside shower to hall bathroom easy. Outside shower is fully enclosed and has hot/cold water.

The yard is fenced in for dogs. We do allow dogs but not cats as owner has allergies to cats. The sunsets are beautiful and can be seen from duplex front deck but so much better at the beach just steps away. We are about 100 steps to the gulf.

There is a free trolley to explore and enjoy the island. Also, if you are into yoga, they have a great yoga studio.

There is a 1-week rental minimum and children are allowed if they are 16 years and older. Rental person must be 25 years of age.

There is an outside shower that is completely enclosed with hot & cold water and with a few beach chairs and an umbrella. There is an outside table and chairs to dine outside.

Car: Recommended

Our island has a yoga studio and a couple spas to help you relax. Fishing is good on the island. During the summer, we have the turtle watches. The loggerheads lay their eggs in May and their nests hatch during the summer months. Very interesting if you are a late-night person and want to see them crawl to the water. The turtles are very much protected.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband is from the Tampa area but I am originally from Long Island, New York. We love being near the water and we like the laid-back atmosphere of this island. I have been bringing my children here since they were little. I was actually at the public beach on the island on May 3, 1975 - went home and a few hours later was at the hospital with the birth of our daughter. She has been going to the beach there since since was a couple months old.

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
We bought our property in 2006 as we love this area and beach. It is still a great beach town and not commercialized. There are no chain restaurants (other than Domino's pizza). The coast is not covered with high rise condos. The sunsets are great and it is very relaxing and laidback. The water is great and always clear. You have the gulf on one side and the intercoastal on the other. We live in Tampa so it is only an hour drive for us to enjoy our get-away.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We enjoy kayaking, riding our bikes around the island or the scooter. My husband also paddle boards. Can do that on the gulf or intercoastal side. There is a great salvage place in Sarasota I like to go by and see what they have.
