Property description

What makes our rental home special? The photos below do that for the most part, but don't do the home justice. The views of the Gulf from the master bedroom and master bath are amazing! The serene blue-green Gulf waters...the brilliant orange and blue sunsets...the smell and sound of the surf...will lower your blood pressure and make you feel good to be alive!

My husband and I love the beach - Negril, Jamaica, and Ocean City, New Jersey are our favorites. When we retired we looked for a place that had the best of both beaches - we found it in Bradenton Beach, Florida. It is safer than Negril, and less crowded and less commercial than Ocean City. My husband says it reminds him of the Jersey shore in the early 60's.

The beach is 170 steps from our door (my gait!), and is never crowded, not even during the peak winter season. It almost feels like it's our own private beach. The home has every beach accessory - chairs, lounges, umbrellas, carts, beach toys and towels.

Everything on the Island is accessible via the free open-air trolley that runs by our house every 20 minutes. There are fishing piers and marinas for those who like to fish. They say Anna Maria Island has the best fishing on the West Coast of Florida.

Like to shop? World-famous St. Armand's Circle is 15 minutes away. Prime Outlet (130 designer and brand-name outlet stores) is nearby,where shopping will not threaten your vacation budget.

Have kids, or just want to act like one? Busch Gardens is one hour away, and Disney World is a flat 2 hour drive.

Car: Recommended

There is plenty to do here. The restaurants are great. Everything on the Island is accessible via the free trolley that runs by our house every twenty minutes.

There are fishing piers and marinas for those who like to fish or want to rent a boat, jet ski or fishing equipment. They say Anna Maria Island has the best fishing on the West Coast of Florida.

For the golfers there is a par-3 on the Island and 26 challenging courses nearby.

Like to shop? World-famous St. Armand's Circle and Sarasota are minutes away. Prime Outlet (130 designer and brand-name outlet stores) is nearby, but not too close to threaten your vacation budget!

Have kids, or just want to act like one? Busch Gardens in about an hour away, and Disney World 2 hours.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Parasailing, Basketball Courts Wildlife viewing, Shelling

Why the Owner Chose Ilexhurst, Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
