Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are retired and LOVE the laid-back island life style. We walk, bike, swim and enjoy the beach every day and the sunsets every evening. Terry enjoys remodeling our 1968 house where we are only the second owner. We have a cat, Frankie, who sometimes ventures out into the back yard. Our dog, Rocky, just joined the family this past Christmas. He is a 8 months old Fox Terrier mix. We love people and look forward to sharing our home. Ich (Barbara) spreche Deutsch (ich komme urspruenglich aus Deutschland) et je parle Francais aussi.

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
We visited this area for the first time during the 'cold' winter of 2010, when we stayed a month on Siesta Key, a month in Bradenton and two months in Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island. We loved the area's culture, arts, music and of course the beaches and outdoor activities. Anna Maria Island is quaint and laid back, pedestrian and bike friendly. 'Our' beach access is the most picturesque - it's like stepping into a Florida postcard: sugar white sand, emerald water and an uncrowded expanse of miles of beach. At the same time we are within short driving distances to three airports and the amenities of Sarasota, St. Petersburg and Tampa. Theaters, music, museums and the best restaurants and shopping, plus golf courses and sporting events - whatever your heart desires. You come back to the quiet life on Anna Maria, dig your heels into the warm sand, enjoy a drink and watch another glorious sunset!

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Our 'Sunny Seashell' is just that: sunny, fresh and made for couples or friends who like a cozy place to stay, where being out and about is more important than watching the latest news on TV. You are so close to the beach that you can jump up from the dinner table and watch the sun set. You can bike and stroll to the quaint shops on Pine Ave and fish on Anna Maria Pier. You can get a cup of coffee and sip it under the pines of Anna Maria beach. You can join the Turtle Watch and see the loggerhead turtle nests and you can watch a multitude of waterbirds along with dolphins and even a manatee. Collect seashells and sand dollars or go to one of the many art fairs on the island, or get fresh fruit and veggies at the local farmers market.
