About Alex & Elena

We are a family of designers. You'll feel it reflected in every detail of our Happy Island Cottage.

We love to travel to exotic destinations, mostly tropical ;)

Alex & Elena purchased this house in 2012

Why Alex & Elena chose Holmes Beach

We were looking for a vacation home for a long time until we found and fell in love with our Happy Island Cottage on Anna Maria Island. The location was just perfect with beautiful relaxing beaches and friendly and casual atmosphere. The house was perfect as well with its modern design and a wealth of new features. It was full of light and each time we were there it was making us feel just happy. We were getting same kind of reaction from all of our friends and guests who were staying there with us. So it was an easy decision for us to name the house “Happy Island Cottage”.

What makes this house unique

Now a few more details about the house. It has a nice, tropical and private backyard with a heated pool, a spacious outdoors seating area and a brand new grill. On the interior the house is decorated with love and style. Each one of the three bedrooms is spacious and has its own tropical character. Two bedrooms have king size beds, the third has a set of twin beds. The dining and living areas are very comfortable and furnished with brand new furniture. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped with all new appliances. Every woman staying in this house will appreciate the laundry room with a set of high capacity and high efficiency LG washer and dryer.

The Happy Island Cottage is located only 400 steps from the beach and 200 steps from marina, where you can dock your boat or book a fishing or a sunset trip, or rent a kayak. The main island shopping plaza is located two blocks away, so you don't have to drive to get to the restaurants, shops and bars.

Overall, staying at the Happy Island Cottage is a truly relaxing experience that will make your vacation feel longer and more happy.

Clean, updated and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay as a family of five. Great location and a very comfortable house. The private pool was great for the late afternoons after the beach. This was our first visit to AMI and we can't wait to come back.

Excellent property for a family holiday, lovely beach, and nice places to eat.

  • 4 of 5

A good size property for a family holiday. Lovely beach and plenty of eating places if wanted. If you choose to eat in there is a very good supermarket (Publix) down the road.

Would recommend this house to family and friends.

Fantastic! Wonderful Island, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for more during a recent trip to Anna Maria Island. First time on the Island and it won't be the last. Will definitely stay at this house on our return - perfect size for our party of 6 (4 adults, 2 children), and wonderfully close to the beach and all amenities.

Don't think twice about staying here - go ahead and book it, you'll not regret it!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Five adults had a wonderful stay at Happy Island Cottage. The property was welcoming, clean, tidy and very well equipped.

We loved the pool.

Alex was on hand to meet and greet us, show us around the property and provide some excellent local knowledge on the area, including the local beaches and restaurants.

Must visits in the area include:-

A walk to Duffys for a $1 beer and best burger ever, the Ugly Grouper for an evening beverage and live music, the City Pier for dolphin spotting and a drive down to the Anna Maria Oyster bar.

However, our best secret find was the Starfish Bar just over the Cortez bridge. Great to sit on the deck munching local seafood whilst watching the wildlife and sunset. Just wonderful.

Thanks Alex, we will be returning.
