Holmes Beach Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Ask about our condo on the bay and our other cottage ****


Hello all you vacationers out there! The Marlin has three units total. Unit 202 is a one bedroom and will sleep four. It has a king bed and a queen sleeper sofa.

Unit 204 is a two bedroom one bath and will sleep six. It has a queen bed, two twin beds and a queen sleeper sofa.

Unit 206 is a two bedroom one bath and will sleep eight. It has a queen bed, two twin beds and two queen sleeper sofas.

The building has a large parking area that can accommodate a boat and trailer and both public boat ramps are no more than a 2 minute drive away.

There is also an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, sink and refrigerator and an outdoor sitting area with tables and chairs. There is hammock under the trees to relax in as well. Unit 206 has its own private sitting area.

In the front there is a covered area with more chairs so you can get some shade but still be outside enjoying the beautiful island weather. The street The Marlin is on is tucked back in and because it is not a through way and because there is no public parking, the street is hardly traveled and perfect for children.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to call or email.

I look forward to hearing from you and finding the perfect vacation rental for you.

If you are interested, we do have other properties available. We have a two bedroom two bath duplex also located in Holmes Beach. It's just a little over a mile away from the Marlin...or a trolley car ride!

Also available is a two bedroom, two bath condo. It sits on the bay side with beautiful views! This property is only available as a monthly rental. Please inquire for availability.

Remember we are listing 331207. Please write that down to view this website again! P

Thank you again! Look forward to meeting you soon.

Why Cheri chose Anna Maria Island

When I moved to the island I fell in love with the small town feel. I thought that other people would also enjoy getting to experience the tight knit community. So I set out to design the Marlin to accommodate family reunions or quick getaways. It makes me smile to be able to let someone else enjoy our island paradise. I hope that everyone that stays here will enjoy our island as much as I do and that it will be a yearly stop for many!

What makes this apartment unique

THE BEACH! a few steps and you are there! Then come back up for lunch, shower off in the outdoor shower and be back on the beach in no time at all. In the evenings, grill on the outdoor gas grill or sit and enjoy the night sea air and of course, most importantly don't miss a moment of the sunset. Less exciting but equally important is the Marlin offers free long distance calling, internet, cable TV, washer and dryer and a large parking area that can accommodate a boat and trailer.

Me and my wife stayed at the Marlin 202 for a long weekend getaway. We had a great weekend. The house was very nice and clean. The pool area was also very nice. The beach is only 200yds away so very easy to walk back and forth to the house. Had all your beach needs with the beach towels, chairs and umbrella. You can walk to the grocery store and other stores. We also walked to breakfast on the beach in the morning which is at Manatee beach. I would defiantly come back and stay. Thank you to Chris for all your help!

So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Marlin for 5 nights in the beginning of October and had a wonderful time. I was there for a personal retreat and enjoyed that it was quiet, had all of the amenities that I needed (washer and dryer, beach chairs, pots and pans and kitchen stuff, comfortable couches and a hammock by the pool). The house is a 2 minute walk to the beach which makes it so easy to pop back and forth as needed. There is a Publix (grocery store) right around the corner and the downtown is a short drive away. The house was clean and tidy upon my arrival. I loved the little pool courtyard out back. I ate lunch outside most days and even took on the hammock one day. I will definitely check out the Marlin again if and when I am back at Anna Maria Island.

Went to the Marlin for a weekend get away, loved the location. 3 Blocks to the trolley, very close to the beach. Loved the pool choice also when we were tired of the beach.

Everything was exactly liked pictured, also early check in was the best.

Anna Maria Island is one of the best places, quiet, and relaxing..............

Location... location... location!

We had units 204 and 206 for two weeks and LOVED it!! The location is perfect! Just steps to the beach and on a very quiet street. The outdoor living space with pool and grill was awesome too. Cheri is great to work with and we are looking forward to staying at the Marlin again!

A great place to relax and unwind from the hustle of everyday life

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son and I just spent a great week at the Marlin staying in #206. We have previously stayed in a smaller condo closer to Cortez in the past and here we were immediately impressed by the privacy and quietness of the street and unit. There was another family that came in a few days after we got there and we really didn't notice them except in passing. This unit was furnished with everything we needed to enjoy the week to include detergent and fabric softener sheets for the washer and dryer that was in the master bedroom. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking and bakeware. The unit was very clean with fresh bedding and numerous pillows. The tvs were all updated flat screens that had cable. After confirming payment with the owners early on they provided contact information in case we needed anything however the unit and furnishings were all in great condition. The access to the beach was an effortless short walk and we used the pool and hammock almost daily. Although we didn't use the outdoor grilling area I did go over and look it over and the inside of the grill and cooking grates were clean and ready to be used. There was also plenty of parking as our neighbors had guests over and everyone had places to park. I appreciated the ease of dealing with Cheri while renting this and our communications prior to and after the rental. As I've been coming to Anna Maria Island to vacation my entire life I'm almost hesitant to give away how impressed we were with the unit because before long I'll be looking to come back here again and I'm hoping it's available. Thanks again for sharing the unit and we'll be back.

It has a shallow end with a bench around the perimeter for sitting. The deep end is a large circle perfect for swimming and there is a 'beach' shelf which mimics sitting at the edge of the shore line. Inside the beach when unoccupied is a fountain and when occupied is a jet that created bubble rings. The pool has a four color light system which can be solid or multicolor and illuminates the pool for night enjoyment. Also, there is a HUGE deck around the pool with lounge chairs and tables.
