This place is great! It's exactly as described and the owner is very responsive if you need anything or have questions. We absolutely loved our stay at My Blue Heaven. It is in the perfect location. The pool is awesome for kids and adults and it's just a minute to walk across the street to the beach! We would go back here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a place on the island.

Great pool and hot tub

  • 5 of 5

It was a bit chilly during our stay, and the heated pool and hot tub made our trip great. Our kids spent hours jumping back and forth between the two. We had a great time!

Quaint great location but cold pool and hot tub did not work

  • 2 of 5

Luckily our group had two houses and were able to use the pool and hot tub at other location. Disappointed.

Monkey bus and free trolley was great. We all had a blast on the Island.

Owner's Response: Thank you for acknowledging our great location and our quaint house, as well as the convenient location to the trolley. We also have one of the largest and unique swimming pool and hot tub in town. As a popular rental house with a popular pool we have many guests attempting to adjust the pool settings and many times this causes an interuption in the pools function. We have the best pool maintenance guy on the island and he is always a phone call away from taking care of all our pool needs, the same day. Unfortunately we never received a communication from you that the pool was not heating properly, therefore we could not address the issue.

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.

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!


All along the laid back 7 mile island you can find bike paths, marinas, water sports, sailboats, fishing, golf, tennis courts, miniature golf, beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, not to mention dining, shopping, and sightseeing
