About Anna Maria Island:

Anna Maria Island is a quaint Barrier Island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are the main attraction here. It is a place where 'old' Florida charm can still be found, flip flops are a way of life and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph. High rise condos and fast food restaurants are pleasantly absent from our pristine 'get away from it all' island.

About Cheri

About the owner: Hello vacationers! I live on beautiful Anna Maria Island and hope that you have the opportunity to at least visit the island. I have lived on Anna Maria for almost ten years now and enjoy the cozy small island feel. It really is a friendly place! So come visit sooner than later! Thanks again for your interest!

Cheri purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Cheri chose Holmes Beach

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach:

When I moved to the island I fell in love with the small town feel. It was nice to walk into the post office, drug store or supermarket and see smiles all around! I thought that other people would also enjoy getting to experience the tight knit community. It makes me smile to be able to let someone else enjoy our island paradise. I hope that everyone that stays here will enjoy our island as much as I do and that it will be a yearly stop for many!

Convenient & Comfortable

  • 3 of 5

Nice property to spend a couple of days visiting Anna Maria Island. Nice TV and high speed internet - fact sheet should list SSID to facilitate login . Comfortable king size bed. Would suggest fixing the tub shower diverter valve as well as the security chain on the entry door. Overall a good value, clean and comfortable.

Very comfortable and clean. Easy walk to the beach and trolley stop. Love the classic Florida terrazzo floors! Reminds me of the house I grew up in!

Perfect for the purpose of our trip

  • 3 of 5

The owner was great, she always answered my questions timely and was accommodating to our needs prior to the trip. Everything was nice except the shower head in the bathroom by the room with twin beds was not working properly. We ran out of hot water after 1 shower. The outside patio was a little run down. May want to consider some newer furniture.

Cute duplex with off road parking

My husband and I visited Anna Maria Island with another couple and their 2 sons. The layout was perfect and we wanted for nothing! Our host was very easy to work with. We love the beach life and cant wait to come back next year!!
