About Dan Winegrad

We're originally from Annapolis, MD and now reside in Apollo Beach, FL (45 minutes from Anna Maria). Our daughter (and son-in-law) and our 3 lovely grandchildren live close-by to us. My wife is a retired High School teacher who is originally from Michigan and graduated from the University of Maryland. I am a retired engineer who graduated from the University of Cincinnati. I also retired as a LTC in the Army Reserve.

Dan Winegrad purchased this house in 2012

Why Dan Winegrad chose Holmes Beach

We have always loved this Island and totally enjoy the pristine Gulf beach and water. We know you will thoroughly enjoy our beach house and Anna Marie's 'laid-back' relaxing lifestyle. We were most fortunate to purchase this fantastic beach property and look forward to meeting you.

What makes this house unique

This house is a great place for a family vacation. Very comfortable with everything you need to use and enjoy. There are plenty of books, games and musical CDs. The house is modern and is decorated with a warm beachy flavor. Anna Marie Island offers so much to do and see. The Trolley is free and goes all over the Island. There are many great restaurants all minutes away from our place.

Great place near the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay and we enjoyed it as much as the first. Very clean with all the amenities we needed. Dan also fixed a flat tire on one of the bikes. It’s a great location for the beach and Anna Maria and Holmes Beach. We hope to be back next year.

Great beach house for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, only a few steps to the beach. We visited with our two kids, age 4 and 6.

Excellent beach supplies, including wagons, kids' toys, umbrellas, and beach chairs.

Excellent kitchen supplies, barbeque, and Wi-Fi.

Great deck off main level for meals at home. Check out Anthony's seafood supply for local fresh caught fish and crab!

Definitely recommend for family vacation!
