About Celia Petters

Couple who live in Tampa and love Anna Maria Island. We enjoy spectacular sunsets and moonlight walks on the beach, as well as fun in the sun at the beach, biking and kayaking.

Why Celia Petters chose Holmes Beach

Convenient to gorgeous beach, and the free Island trolley. The glistening Gulf is a beach lover's dream. Bikes to explore the Island at your leisure.

What makes this house unique

Two minutes to the beach or Trolley, and 15 minute walk to the Sandbar Restaurant. Fabulous sunsets and moonlight walks on the beach. Delight in dolphin and manatee sightings, turtle season, and multitudes of interesting shore birds.

Location was Good but price paid for the place was NOT worth it

  • 2 of 5

The location was good in regards to how close it is to the beach; however, some if not most of the dishes, kitchenware, and utensils were dirty. The instructions on how to leave the place was vague "leave it as you found it", so we swept the place and put everything back in order. Washed the towels and the rugs. But renter only gave us half of the deposit back. So, it's like we were expected to wash the sheets and pillowcases we slept on the night before we leave and sleep on bare mattresses? I have never rented a place where I have to wash my own sheets and blankets and get penalized for not doing so.

If this one is open the dates you want, BOOK IT!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in early August for 3 nights and it was everything one could ask for and more. Large enough for 6 people it features everything you are used to in a house...but at the beach! It has two bedrooms, one with a King and one with 2 singles, and another living area/office type area with a couch that converts to a bed. Located on a quiet street just about 1 mile from the shops and food in the town of Anna Maria the owners thought of just about everything down to having a small cart in the garage to help carry all your beach gear when you take the very short walk out to a wonderful and quiet beach. Full kitchen with all the standard utensils and extras that come with a house. This property also has a nice back porch with chairs and tables. One really does not need to bring anything except clothes as toys, umbrella's, bikes (three), etc...are all provided. I noticed that this place is booked almost all winter which is not a surprise. So if one wants a resort with tons of pool and such amenities then look elsewhere but if you want a comfortable place to enjoy the beach, Anna Maria, Bradenton, are not going to find a better deal or fit than this place. To top all of this off the owner is very quick to respond to questions and anything we inquired about including during our stay.
