2 bedroom, 2 bath with patio & Grill & Outdoor Shower
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 Apartment 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!
What makes this Apartment unique
This duplex is just a few short blocks to the beach. There are no busy streets to cross. The unit offers free long distance calling, internet, cable TV, washer and dryer, patio area and a small storage shed for beach chairs, toys, etc. We have a patio table with umbrella and an outdoor grill. We provide beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels and a beach cart to take to the beach.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
House is cute! Trolley stop is around the corner and less than 3 blocks to walk to the beach. Location, location, location! Plenty of hot water for 5 of us to shower. Air conditioner works super good. It was set at 72 and we had to turn it up to 74 because we were getting cold. Never opened the couch bed because my daughter thought the couch was super comfy. We would stay here again!
My husband, 8 year old and almost 2 year old visited AMI to attend a beach wedding. We liked the island- great beaches, not too crowded, restaurants and grocery close by, etc.
This was our first trip with VRBO, but we have done several with other similar sites. So, it was very odd to me that we never heard from the owner at all, neither before or during our trip. That was ok, it just felt odd.
Pros to the house: split bedrooms and two bathrooms is great. Living room is comfortable for everyone. Short walk to the beach. Decor is cute and beachy.
-it’s a bit tight. We had to scoot some furniture to get a pack n play set up in the second bedroom, and there’s no way to access the closet in that room without crawling on the bed.
-ants in the kitchen and bathroom, around the sinks. We didn’t do any cooking during our stay.
- washing machine is very moldy/mildewy.
- house is located on a main road, and traffic was noisy at times. (But the walk to the beach is a different direction, so no problems there.)
Overall, the place is fine. Not fancy, but sufficient.
Nice place, had everyrhing we needed. Near beaches and shopping. Will definitely consider staying another time.
Nice weekend at the beach!
Great stay with the family!
Perfect for our needs
Location was great! House was cute and had all the things we needed. Easy access to anything we wanted. No hassles at all and the area was beautiful. We would stay again for sure!
Convenient & Comfortable
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.
Anna Maria Island has a trolley that will transport you anywhere you need to go on the island!
