Property description

Framed by tall twisted Seagrape trees, and Saw Palmettos, you will find our 3800 sq ft.' tropical green' painted beach house, stretching up to three levels. Broken pieces of white sea shells, surround the tropical landscaping and coral pavers that make up the driveway. We built our home in 1996, and have enjoyed it as a meeting place for family reunions, friends, and Holidays. This is a house that has more windows than walls, and when you see the view, you'll understand why. Recently we updated it with new replacement windows and doors, hardy-board siding , new cabinets and granite counter tops in kitchen and bathrooms.
There are 2 houses between us and the pristine, white sandy beach; a quick short walk.
There are roll-a-way shutters, central intercom & stereo system,security system, and an elevator in the home that stops at three levels. The LR has a beautiful keystone fire place, with high cypress wood ceilings. House is decorated with a 'beach motif' with comfortable furniture.
The house is very open, tiled floors throughout, and has ceiling fans in every room. Two of the guest rooms have a queen size bed, and there is a large 'dorm' room on the back of the house with twin beds that sleep 6 people. The room has an adjoining large bathroom with shower (2 shower heads) and Koehler tub. Cable and
TVs in every room, PlayStation in guest room, DVD player. High-speed Internet access. Printer & Fax.
The covered wrap-around, screened deck area extends out behind the dining and LR areas, with a white porch swing, and comfortable patio furniture.
Large 2-car garage, and separate laundry room with W/D on ground level. Ping-Pong Table under lanai area, with 2 outdoor showers; one enclosed.
The master suite itself, is over 800 sq feet, surrounded by several windows overlooking the tree-tops with views of the Gulf. It makes up the top floor with a King size bed, wet-bar, keystone fireplace, home office area, sitting area with sofa, and covered deck . Adjoining is the master-bath with corner jacuzzi, separate toilet closet with bidet, and large shower.

You may receive a refund of up to 100% of your total rental payment if you provide written notice of cancellation at least 60 days prior to your arrival date, and paid with electronic check. However, if credit card used for deposit, and cancellation necessary, tenant responsible for credit-card fee (2.5% fee) not owner. Remaining deposit will be credited to tenant credit-card.

Car: Recommended

Anna Maria Island is a beautiful quiet island, with 7 miles of white sandy beaches, and the most beautiful sunsets you've ever seen..The amazing thing about the island, is how it maintains its 'small town' atmosphere. There are no towering high rise condos and/or apartments on the island.

Winding, narrow streets are framed with tropical trees and plants. Sea oats sway quietly in the gentle Gulf breeze.

The island's 3 cities provide access to spectacular beaches and tons of outdoor activities.

People are very friendly. There is a Free Trolley that travels the length of the island from 6:00AM-11:00PM, and is fun to ride. It can take you to island shops, awesome seafood restaurants, rustic fishing piers, ice cream shops, grocery stores, churches and more.

There are numerous activities and fun things to do--to list a few: fishing, snorkeling, diving, surfing, para-sailing, bike riding and shelling. There are canoe, jet-ski, moped, and even 'Zegway' rentals.

Nature can be enjoyed at its best walking the shell-lined shores, watching tropical birds and other island wildlife .There are parks in the area, including Myakka River State Park, and DeSota National Park. There are fishing charters, kayak outfitters, and even fruit farms nearby.

There are numerous local attractions, should you tire of the sun, and need a 'rainy day' to catch up. There's Mote Marine Aquarium, Bishop Planetarium/Museum, Ringling Museum of Art, the Island Playhouse Theater, The Dali Museum, and Marie Selby Gardens, with it's beautiful orchid displays, and tropical plants..

You will find major attractions in neighboring cities including Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, and Disney World. The M LB team, the Tampa Rays play at Tropicana field in St Petersburg.

There are more than 50 golf courses nearby. If you'd like to improve your game, the internationally famous David Leadbetter Golf Academy, Nick Boliterie Tennis Academy and IMG Academy are all located in Bradenton .

The island is very 'laid-back' and offers so many wonderful accommodations. Come for the sunset, but stay for the sunrise,...Anna Maria Island is a special place, that will reach out to your heart...you won't want to leave...

Year Purchased: 1996

About: My husband and I are in our late 50's. He is a physician and myself a registered nurse. We have four college and graduate age sons that range between the ages of 23-29. We built our vacation home when our sons were young, and have had some memorable times and wonderful summer vacations, shared with extended family and friends. Our sons love to hunt,fish, and do just about any outdoor activity. We also have a VAIL TIMESHARE for week-Jan. 12-19 2013 only. Usually rents for $3000.00 (Vail Run Resort) Will negotiate rent down if interest--contact me for information. Had last minute cancellation.

Why Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
Anna Maria Island is very special too us--many family members live in the area. Florida's west coast sugar sand beaches are very often ranked as the top beaches in the world by most travel magazines. Family oriented and easy to get to, Anna Maria beaches are affordable destinations for making perfect vacations and 'perfect' memories--whether you want to hunt for sea-shells, fish, or just unwind..can't think of a better location...
