About Mark & Lyza, owners

We are a Chicago couple who fell in love with Anna Maria Island and had to buy a place. Now we want to share it with the world!

Be sure to check out our other VRBO Beach House on Anna Maria Island:

Mark & Lyza, owners purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark & Lyza, owners chose Holmes Beach

We wanted a place across the street from the beach. We found this house and fell in love with the potential. We remodeled it and put in the largest heated residential pool on the island! The pool has a large spa, a swim up table and a water sun deck!

What makes this house unique

This quaint house has been updated with modern electronic conveniences yet keeps it's 'beachy feel'. Close to great dining and shopping. Spectacular sunsets every night!

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Blue Heaven. The pool was a hit with the kids. It was well maintained and we all enjoyed the convenience and privacy of having our own pool. Our family of 10 fit well in the house although the family and dinning rooms were a little small. Since we were rarely all there at the same time, it was never a problem. The lay out of the house is a little unusual. It appears to be a duplex that was converted to a single unit. There are multiple entry/exit doors. The layout afforded a bit more privacy for the our adult kids families allowing access from the outside rather than through shared spaces.

Great House & Owner

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at My Blue Heaven. Perfect location; close to beach and restaurants. Pool is wonderful. Had problems with air conditioner on one side of the house, but Mark, the owner, was right on it! Would definitely rent here again.

Great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with our little slice of Blue Heaven. Steps from the beach but you barely want to leave the pool. We hardly spent any time inside, but it was a great space to fit us all. Three generations spent spring break here and we are hoping to be back soon. A perfect week of fun!!

Great house for a family reunion with children in quiet part of the island

  • 4 of 5

We most enjoyed the pool/outdoor area as a refuge from the heat of the day at the beach. The pool has several shaded areas and ledges that the two little ones loved to pretend swim in; the older children loved the sit in the pool table area as did the adults! The pool is spacious for lots of activity. The beach is unmatched in beauty and sunsets galore right across the street. Loved the whole experience inside the house and out! Four to five stars.

Great house and pool!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! The house was perfect and the pool was even better! It was so hot every day we lived in the pool.

The owners were very responsive while there when I had any questions.

Thank you again for a wonderful vacation.
