About Suzanne and Tony Ratchford

After two visits to Anna Maria Island, Tony and I fell in love with the lifestyle the area affords. The next thing we knew, we were looking at available properties. Once again we found ourselves visiting the island only this time to look at a property. We loved it, we wanted it, and we bought it and now we want to share all the island has to offer with YOU.

Suzanne and Tony Ratchford purchased this condo in 2010

Why Suzanne and Tony Ratchford chose Holmes Beach

The island is stunning. It's unique way of living and welcoming people await your arrival. It is a true diamond in the ruff.

What makes this condo unique

The trolley system is second to none. There are miles of walking/cycling trails in the nearby bird sanctuary. You can choose to be as active as you please or just hang out at the pool and relax. You can kayak the preserves or cycle or walk, so much exploring to do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo is fully equipped with everything you need for a beach vacation. The beach is beautiful and just a short walk from the condo. We would definitely stay again!

Greatly enjoyed staying at Tony & Suzanne 's condo. They had everything there that anyone would need for daily use. Love the way the condo was decorated and the comfortable beds and furniture. We did have one small incident and the only reason I am mentioning it is because it was handled so quickly and professionally. We would highly recommend anyone to stay here. And will definitely stay here again in the future.

Great Stay at Cayman Cay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of January at Suzanne and Tony's condo at Cayman Cay. The condo was comfortable, the kitchen perfect for our needs and the location was only a five minute walk to the beach.You have all the beach gear you need from beach towels to beach chairs and a beach buggy to get it all there. Suzanne and Tony were gracious hosts and responded immediately to any questions or concerns during our stay. The only down side to this condo is the proximity to Gulf Drive. It is an extremely busy road with a lot of traffic noise. That said, once inside the unit with the balcony doors closed, you don't hear it. The complex is well managed and the other residents are friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this vacation rental and thank Tony and Suzanne for a relaxing "getaway" from the cold and snow of Minnesota.

Better Than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

More often than not, properties are not as nice as depicted on the internet. However... if possible, this condo was even more lovely in person! Beautifully decorated and so comfortable. The beds were amazing! Tony and Suzanne have thought of every convenience to make you feel totally at home. The complex was very quiet and much to our surprise, it was almost as if we had a private pool. Very affordable without any hidden fees. Just a complete delight to stay here. Thank you again for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation on AMI.

Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island is a little piece of heaven. Here on Island time, you can leave you fast pace behind. Relax on the FREE trolley and visit several of our shops and restaurants or meander down the beach for miles, while collect shells and watch the beautiful Floridian ocean birds as they fish along side you. You'll most definitely catch the Dolphins playing on the sandbar and perhaps see a manatee..There is so much to see and do here, the list is too long. Once you come, you'll want to return, we guarantee.
