We have raised three children in this wonderful community and want to invite you to share in the beauty of Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island.Being from here we are readily avaliable to assist you with any of your needs during your stay.

What makes this condo unique

Anna Maria Island and Holmes Beach are wonderfully quiet and beautiful beaches with close proximity to Sarasota, Tampa (with Busch gardens, Tampa Bay Rays), many Major League Baseball spring training facilities,and Orlando with Disney World. We are on the west coast of Florida which is the prefered side of Florida because of its snow white beaches. Anna Maria Island has no high rise condominiums it is a beautiful island!

Guestbook comments from the owner

First time to Anna Maria Island. Palm Cay #7 was recommended by our friends. What a recommendation this was. Perfect seems an under statement. It is home away from home, clean and had everything we needed. Thank You for letting us share your beautiful, comfortable home.

We definitely hope to return, so we hope you would have us again as your guests. Thank You!

Just what I was hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to write too good of a review. I kind of want to keep it our secret. For my wife and I, it was just about as good a vacation as we could have hoped for. The condo itself is well stocked including beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, pool noodles and even coffee! Other reviewers commented that they liked the bed, but we had a hard time sleeping on it. It is a great location and fine for two people. It isn't a luxury hotel room but by the end of the week I was wishing I owned one of the units in the complex. The pool is really nice and well maintained. Having laundry on site is nice. Don't forget to bring a couple rolls of quarters though! The beach from the front door of the unit is 105 of my paces. That is the same distance from my office to the elevator in the building where I work. The complex is walking distance to Walgreens, a bagel shop, several restaurants, Publix, two beach shops and a dive bar. You don't need a car if you stay here. You can literally walk to everything you need and the complex has a trolly stop right out front. The FREE trolly will pick you up and take you up and down the entire island. I would definitely go back there.

This was the perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was wonderful! The condo was immaculate with everything you needed and a great pool area! I loved that there were beach chairs, towels and umbrellas. And if you have kids, there was a big bag of beach toys! And with only 100 steps to the beach, it was the perfect location! The area was nice and quiet, very relaxing, but just a short distance away, you had restaurants and night life. It was very close to the little shopping center with a Publix also. All in all, it is just the perfect spot to be in! I can't wait to come back! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone who needs a "home away from home!"

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from 1-13-17 to 2-1-17. It was great. My wife says 150 steps from the front door to the beach and she takes small steps. There is a nice heated pool in the court yard, double sinks in the bathroom, king bed and flat screen TV in bedroom, flat screen TV in living room, large kitchen with K cup coffee maker, and nice breakfast area. Great location on Gulf Drive a short walk to CVS, Walgreens, Publix and restaurants. It is beautiful decorated. After about a week we booked for a month and a half next year.

The Pratt's

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time on Holmes Beach! The condo was everything we had hoped and more. I felt at home the moment I walked through the front door. The condo had a very nice welcoming letter from the owners who added two bottles of wine for are enjoyment. The K cups also was very considerate also. We enjoyed the pool and the entire complex was maintain beautifully. The interior with two flat screen TV's and a awesome comfortable bed was amazing! As stated in the overview you do not need to bring much here but a smile for you will have a relaxing time! Looking forward to coming back next year!

My husband and I have had a wonderful vacation to Anna Maria Island. The condo is GREAT!!! There isn't one thing that we needed, that wasn't already there! Everything was clean and organized! We couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay. The pool was nice, clean! When they say close to the beach...their correct. Very Close!!! Thank You to the owners for a wonderful vacation and for saving my sunglasses!
