About the Property

Open kitchen, living and dining area. Private spots to escape from it all.

Authentic spacious beach cottage charm in a mid-century shell. Located a couple blocks from Florida's best powder sand beach and situated across from Bimini Bay with use of our dock. Explore the quiet paradise where the locals live. The Pine Ave shops and famous Beach Bistro Restaurant are less than a mile away. Enjoy the old Florida atmosphere with no hi-rise buildings. We restored the original terrazzo floors and opened up the space but kept the original charm. Amenities are all new and modern. Three bedrooms with low allergen latex mattresses: king bed, queen bed and set of twin beds. Private outdoor shower, enclosed porch and all Florida native beach landscaping. There is also a studio space for your art projects.

Our dock, in front of the house, is for your use. Boat and kayak rentals are available on the island as well. The sushi restaurant is right across the bay! Pedestrian cross walk to the beach and free trolly buses are one block away. Less than a mile away you can explore the shopping and restaurants along Pine Ave or dine on the beach at Beach Bistro, Florida's highest rated restaurant.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are full time Florida residents. As former city dwellers it's been easy to adapt to the welcome change in lifestyle and pace! We found paradise!

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
Our family has been coming to the island for vacations since the 60's. Along the way some of us decided to stay! We like the house because it's in a quiet neighborhood in the middle of it all! The beach is a couple blocks away. Shopping and restaurants are a five minute bike ride away. Anna Maria Island is a very unique place. Please keep it a secret!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Modern yet cozy beach cottage environment. Amenities and fixtures are all new. Beautiful native landscaping and a serene private boat dock in the mangroves. You might encounter manatees there!
