Property description

Spectacular, luxurious waterfront property with unbelievable water views. Located in sought after Westbay Point and Moorings.

Welcome to the Ritz! This property has it all, gorgeous bay views plus every designer detail imaginable, plus six flat screen TV’s. The 180 degree panoramic bay view includes dancing Dolphins and a small white sandy beach where you can launch your kayak, paddleboard or do some fishing. At night, the water view changes to a light show with the lights of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge illuminating the sky. Unlike the Gulf beach at night where you stare in to darkness and during the day your tranquility is upset by hundreds of noisy visitors.

The living area is a delight, furnished in tropical Tommy Bahama style with a comfortable settee for watching the water or the 46” flat screen TV. Persian carpets cover the travertine marble flooring. The Ethan Allen dining table is placed in a perfect spot to watch the Dolphins dancing in the bay while enjoying a meal of fresh fish you caught earlier in the day. If you care to entertain, there is a granite topped Island with, wine rack, wine cooler and comfortable leather stools plus a mirrored backed bar. And to make your experience even better, you have delightful friendly neighbors who you will want to entertain. The building contains only 6 units, all of the other units are owner occupied and all of the owners, have my 5 star seal of approval. You will love them and make immediate lifelong friends.

The new designer kitchen has marble floors, a marble sink, a marble mosaic, granite countertops, a flat screen TV and all of the appliances are AAA and covered in cabinetry to match the designer cabinets.
There is a lovely view of the bay through the French doors in the master bedroom, the crown molding and wainscoting, highlight the wood floors, Persian carpet and alabaster lamps. The Tempur-Pedic mattress offers a good night sleep or a perfect place to view the 32” flat screen TV. The master bath has the feel of a mini spa. double cut glass pocket doors open to expose walls flanked with white marble and the marble topped vanity has double vessel sinks with Swarovski crystal faucets. A hairdryer and lighted make-up mirror are mounted to the wall along with a flat screen TV that can be viewed from the 20” soaker tub or the 8” rain shower. There is also a beautiful guest room with a queen bed, wainscoting and French doors opening on to the porch. The guest bath is done in travertine marble and has the designer faucet coming out of the wall mirror into the stone vessel sink. You can watch TV while you shower in the glass shower enclosure including a rain shower.
The location on the map is deceiving because many condo buildings in this complex have the same Street address. My condo is waterfront on the first Street as you enter the complex. It is just steps to the private tennis court and the pool and hot tub. A picture is worth a thousand words, I refer you to mine. Not only is the water view breath taking but but it is enhanced by acres of green grass and open space. This 23 acre water front complex, surrounds you with plenty of blue water and green grasses. It is very private but within walking distance to gulf beaches, restaurants, bars, shopping, marina, gym, beauty salon, Post Office, Library and free trolley. There are also companies near by who will deliver Kayaks, paddle boards bikes and boats right to your back yard, where you can launch them from your private beach.

If you like to walk or bike, you are in paradise. The library is 2 blocks away, the park where they hold a lot of the festivals is 1 block away and 10 restaurants: Island Gourmet, Duffy's Tavern, Hurricane Hanks, Lobstahs, Eat Here, Tortilla Bay, The Feast, Island Coffee House, Beach Bistro, Domino's Pizza and Jesse's Island Store, are from 2 to 6 blocks away. Also, in that same area there are 2 gyms, many shops, the Chamber of Commerce, a marina and bait shop, bike, kayak, scooter, boat and SUP rentals, gas station, hardware store, beauty salon, liquor store and convenience store. The grocery store is 1 1/2 miles away.

For more excitement, you can reach St Armand's Circle and Sarasota in 30 minutes for elegant shopping, dining, live concerts, theater, ballet and the height of art and culture. The Tampa airport can be reached in an hour and Disney Orlando in 2 1/2 hours. Yet, once on Anna Maria Island you are light years away from the hustle and bustle of big city life and free to wonder the tranquil and serene white sand beaches inhabited by hundreds of tropical and exotic birds. This is life the way it should be.

The location is very quiet and private and a 3 block walk from the town of Holmes Beach with a dozen restaurants, shops, fitness centers, a marina, hardware store, bike, boat, kayak and scooter rentals. Manatee County Golf Course is 9 miles away. Gulf beach access is right behind Holmes Beach. Anna Maria Island offers 7 miles of serene white beaches while 30 minutes from Sarasota's art and culture and 2 1/2 hours from Disney. Fly in to Sarasota (30 min.), Tampa (1 hour) or Orlando (2 1/2 hours).

This is my primary residence and I rent it out while staying in my vacation home. The maximum occupancy is 4 adults, people throwing loud parties will be reported and evicted.

Sorry, the condo association only allows rentals of a month or more and I need the last day of the month to clean, no pets, no trucks allowed to park on the property overnight, no children and no smoking. It is on the 2nd floor, end unit with plenty of windows and light, no one above you, but no elevator.

Owner info

About the owner: I love to sail, Stand-Up-Paddle-Board, kayak, bike and walk the beach while on Anna Maria Island. In the winter I like to downhill ski, cross-country ski, snow shoe and sit by the fire.

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
I bought this property because of the location, it is a short walk to the Gulf beach but allows me complete surrenity and privacy. I spend a lot of time on the water and if you look on the map, there are a lot of options for water travel from here. I have direct access and a direct view of Tampa Bay but directly infront of the condo the waters are always calm and on a windy day, I can still paddle boart under the Key Royal bridge and through Bimini Bay to the Galati Marina, if I am on my kayak, I can go out the cut and paddle around to 'The Rod and Reel' for lunch and after lunch, paddle out to the Gulf. On a windy day, I put a sail on my Kayak and can sail to Robinsons Preserve or to Eggmont Key. I can also ride my bike to Robinsons Preserve or even down Longboat Key to Sarasota. The tennis courts are out the front door as is the pool and the hot tub feels great after a long peddle to Sarasota and back.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
If you like to walk or bike, you are in the perfect place. The library is 2 blocks away, the park where they hold a lot of the festivals is 1 block away and 10 restaurants: Island Gourmet, Duffy's Tavern, Hurricane Hanks, Lobstahs, Eat Here, Tortilla Bay, The Feast, Island Coffee House, Beach Bistro, Domino's Pizza and Jesse's Island Store, are from 2 to 6 blocks away. Also, in that same area there are places to dance, 2 gyms, many shops, the Chamber of Commerce, a marina and bait shop, bike, kayak, scooter, boat and SUP rentals, gas station, hardware store, beauty salon, liquor store and convenience store. The grocery store is 1 1/2 miles away.
