Location

Car: Recommended

Home is located on Anna Maria Island, a barrier island with a small town feel, friendly neighbors and a child friendly beach. Restaurants and shopping are within walking distance, or you can ride the free Island trolley for more options. There are many golf courses in the area. Other adventures are available close by such as parasailing, boat or jet ski rentals, deep sea fishing. Several nature parks nearby with canoes, or walking trails to see 'old Florida' wildlife. Within 1 hour drive are many museums, cultural events and theme parks in Bradenton, Sarasota or Tampa. Orlando theme parks are about a 2 hour drive away. We live close by so will be happy to help with suggestions to make your holiday perfect. Fill your days with activities or just relax on the quiet beach outside your door.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

Why the Owner Chose Ilexhurst, Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
We purchased this beach property as our second home when our kids were small. We live closeby so its a convenient get-away. We usually live in it for several months of the year, as well as use it to accommodate family and friends. We love the small town feel of Anna Maria island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the "old Florida" feel of the ground level home (not on stilts) which allows us to walk right out the door onto the beach. Our yard is one of the few shady yards in the area which allows us to lounge or play games in the shade while still enjoying the views and cool breezes.
