About Barbara Spotleson
We purchased this property as a vacation home for our family. Our family has been coming to the island for over 45 years!
Barbara Spotleson purchased this House in 2014
Why Barbara Spotleson chose Holmes Beach
We wanted a maintenance free home. The custom home was extremely well built by contractor Mark Kimball. We love all the extra care and amenitites Mark added to make this an amazing home.
What makes this House unique
The 12 foot plus ceilings add a spacious, comfy feeling. The two extra large showers in our baths are wonderful. The transom windows above the doors brighten up each bedroom with natural light. And who wouldn't love our beautifully landscaped yard with heated splash pool!

My family really enjoyed staying at Barbara’s house. It was clean and spacious. It had everything we needed to cook some meals during the week and plenty of dishes and silverware. It is located on a quiet street and is just a golf cart’s ride away from the beach, shops and restaurants. The only issue we had was the washing machine would pause and stop washing in the middle of cycles. The property manager said they would be getting a new one. We would definitely recommend this residence to anyone wanting to vacation at Anna Maria Island.
Awesome home for vacationing on Anna Maria
The home is wonderful, appointed well and lacks nothing to make your stay the best it can be. The owner is responsive with answers to questions and truly cares for you as a guest in her home.
⭐️Great Spot To Explore AMI ⭐️
This location is very central and a convenient spot to explore Anna Maria Island. Only a few blocks (10-12 min) walk to the beach. The home is spacious, very clean, and well-equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook & entertain. The backyard/pool area is cozy & there's a nice amount of shade for those who don't want to be directly in the sun all day.
Barbara is a great host. Very responsive and accommodating.
Very happy with our stay
We had a great time. The home is beautiful. The layout was perfect. The adults stayed on the main floor. The third bedroom is just far enough to allow older children some privacy. The pool is small but worked for us.
Better Than Advertised!
Island Breeze was by far the nicest property we have ever stayed in! The pictures show a beautiful property that is well-maintained; it is even more breathtaking in person. The property is spotless, very well-maintained, and has all of the amenities (and then some) that you would ever need. Barbara and her husband are extremely polite, accommodating and they were a pleasure to work with. They saw to it that our experience was fantastic! I would gladly stay at Island Breeze again.
If you are staying in the Holmes Beach/AMI area, I would recommend staying at the Island Breeze. I can assure you that you'll be glad you did. If I could rate the property 10 stars, I would.
Thank you Allan!Your review was so kind. We work hard to provide a vacation property with all the amenities of home. We were impressed with the way you took care of our home. Would love to have you stay with us again in the future.
Amazing, beautiful, home and property - book it if you can- you won't be disappointed!
Beautiful home! Fully stocked for any chefs who enjoy cooking - didn't need for a single thing. Everything from flare- dining dishes - glass ware, utensils, pots and pans etc.. was top of the line. The beds and bedding were also fantastic. Nicest home e ever toyed in on the island. 100% +recommendation! Owner was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.
