Why Barbara Koretos chose Holmes Beach

My grandparents had a 2nd home on the island. Growing up our family would come to visit them. I have loved the island ever since.

What makes this townhome unique

Relax, relax relax. Such a short walk to the beach to watch the most spectacular sunsets, enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the front patio or relax in the back yard. This particular unit has an outdoor dining table with umbrella, gas bbq and large fenced in side yard where children can play. There is also an outdoor shower in the back to rinse the sand off when returning from the beach.

True to your word plus more!

  • 5 of 5

Lots of amenities furnished. Such as beach towels, beach unbrella,beach chairs (not in the best shape), paper products plus more.

The landlord went above and beyond with helping us with a personal problem. Also.

Simple. Clean. Very good location. Quiet. Relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family getaway (kids under the age of 6).

Beach access is very close (as advertised). Easy walk for even a 2 year old. Several restaurants within walking distance, as well as shops and other stores carrying any nessecities left behind.

It is quiet. We visited late April, which is more off-season, so maybe that's why. I would check other posts if traveling during "in-season" times to see if that would change at all (I'd doubt there is much difference).

If you're looking for marble floors and elaborate / super luxurious accommodations, then this is not it. While simple, the condo is clean and very comfortable. It has everything you need.

It also has everything you need for a successful beach visit (wagon, chairs, umbrella, some toys, beach towels, etc.). We purchased our own cooler (a cheap fold-flat type) from publix for a couple of dollars. The outdoor shower was simple but fun for the kids, and really useful to get the sand and salt rinsed off.

There was a grill but we didn't use it. The side yard is nice because you can access the shower in back without having to pass through the condo first. A nice outdoor seating area is in front and back. We used the front most often as there are two sliding glass doors that effectively make it a part of the main living area.

For visits to other areas of the island we chose to go by car (preferred the convenience with kids in tow), but the trolley stops were very close by. Golf cart rental places were within walking distance of the condo (again we passed, but they sure looked like fun).

Overall, this is a very solid rental unit that we would highly suggest. There is no pool, so if that is a requirement then move on. But if you're looking for a beach bum vacation, then this fits the bill.

Jan stay

  • 5 of 5

The location was great so close to beach and pleasantly quiet given location so close to shops. Having shops so close for coffee, deli, etc was a great bonus. The condo was clean and very well stocked. It was decorated very nicely. We would definitely recommend it and would love to stay again.

Great location. Very roomy and clean. Nice to have a backyard.

  • 5 of 5

The only thing I need to say as an improvement would be a new tv remote.
