About Claire

Nightly rate does not include cleaning taxes and fees As a small boutique rental agency we pride ourselves on selecting only a handful of the newest, most pristine vacation rentals. We have chosen homes to suit all group sizes and specifications without compromising the highest standards we hold ourselves to. Being this discerning has earned us the trust of many vacationers who have come back year after year.

We are also one of the few agencies with a focus on homes from Anna Maria Island to Siesta Key. We know that while many people are happy to return to the same vacation spot year after year, others like to try out new places. We hope our personalized service and spectacular homes will allow you to truly experience the islands as they were meant to be!

Why Claire chose Holmes Beach

The beach & the backyard. It's tough to find a house in this location with all the amenities this house has to offer. Because this home has 2 bedrooms on the main level it is accessible for all ages. (please note there are 5 steps up into the house and 5 steps down to the pool level in the back yard). The Master Suite is half a floor up and very private. With so many children likely to visit, the owners wanted a home where they could run around without worrying about stairs or not being able to see what they were up to. They also recognize that adults like a little bit of privacy.

Many 'snow birds' appreciate the convenience of staying in a ground level home. It is a luxury that is slowly disappearing as 2-storey homes take over the rental market. The interior finishing's are all top of the line. You will appreciate the luxe bedding and linens and well stocked kitchen. The mattresses are top of the line. We can promise sweet dreams. Another huge benefit of this property is the backyard -with a large pool and great lounge area the backyard has sun throughout the day -any time of year! This yard is truly a tropical paradise. Enjoy!

What makes this townhome unique

Anna Maria Island is a haven for relaxing. We have tried to make everything available that you might possibly need so that you can simply enjoy yourselves, but if it's not there, then it is most likely just around the corner. Enjoy the sand, sun, sitting by the pool or on the beach or even doing some work (it so often crops up) but mostly do just what you want in a great environment.

Beautiful home with asesome pool and hot tub

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home in January of 2018. The house was perfect for our 6 guests which included 2 teens. They loved the hot tub. The house was very well maintained and stocked. The bathrooms/showers were beautiful. It is a great location. The pool area was a bit loud but really wasn't a huge issue for us.

Nice home on wonderful Anna Maria Island

  • 4 of 5

This holiday home is new, clean, and nicely furnished. The two baths are roomy with good water pressure. Washer/dryer, dish washer and microwave all brand new. The backyard is nicely landscaped and the pool, while small, is great for lounging (my 20-some children enjoyed sipping beers at the table in the pool. Just two-and-a-half blocks from the island's famous beautiful beaches. Downsides were a dirty grill (though it cleaned up well), a squishy living room sofa, and location right next to the main road leading in and out of the island. The latter was not a problem inside as the sound-proofing was excellent, but it was noisy by the pool.

Ok overall but interior decor is bit dated & needs freshened up

  • 3 of 5

Good size property for small family & central location to main amenities, restaurants & beaches.

Property needed updated interior, with some painting & new outside furniture, linen & kitchenware.

Air conditioning was OK but very noisy, along quite busy main road.

Pool was not cleaned during stay & jacuzzi did not appear to work correctly.

Overall we enjoyed Anna Maria island but property was just ok.

This property owner is AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Anna Maria Island. We stayed in the five bedroom last year which is attached to the three bedroom that we stayed in this year. It's very clean and comfortable. The pool is AMAZING and we had a great time! Highly recommend these two locations.

Unbelievable! !!Beautiful home, pool and wonderful vacation. Will be back soon.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group. We had people in and out for our wedding weekend with plenty of space for all the extended family. For the latter part of the stay the three of us spread out, relaxed by the pool, and continued to enjoy all the island had to offer. We are all in agreement for a return. Thank you so much for the extraordinary accommodations.

Florida's Best Kept Secret

This perfect picture postcard kind of place moves at a very slow pace. Often know as Florida's best kept secret, Anna Maria Island sits at the southern tip of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico and is perched north of Longboat Key. Leave the car at home and travel the island by trolley bus. Cycle or walk to your favorite watering hole to enjoy the sunset. Stay at one of the many condominiums and vacation rental homes scatted around the Island. There are no high rise buildings in this area, just houses with the “Old Florida” feel, in neighborhoods that are not far from the water’s edge. A kayak or fishing boat is the favored transportation for exploring the inlets and canals that shelter Snook and Redfish beneath age old fishing docks. With and average temperature of 75 degrees, this year round attraction with its laid back feel is the place to relax, soak up the sun and enjoy the delights of some of the award winning restaurants. The beaches of Anna Maria Island are some of the best on the Gulf Coast. Not for just the soft sugar white sands and the rich turquoise blue water but the most incredible sunsets that this part of the world is famous for.

Manatees and Dolphins

Wildlife is in abundance everywhere you look. Stroll the shore and look for the occasional Manatee and Bottlenose Dolphin just beyond the waves. Wild Parrots can be heard chattering from the trees or see them fly past in droves searching for a safe place to perch. In the summer months Turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. Herons will wait close to the fisherman ready to steal bait from his bucket of pinfish and shiners. Pelicans sit patiently in the Mangroves and perch on the deck post waiting for fish to swim by. Sit for a while in the shade beneath the Australian Pines, sea oats dancing in the wind, Terns and Sandpiper run between the surf, hungry for crabs and crustaceans.

Take the Trolley with its complimentary fare as it travels the full length of this island, 7 miles in length, stopping at popular spots on the way. Picture Galleries display wonderful renderings from local artists. Holmes Beach Captain’s moor their vessels at Catchers Marina and couples walk the plaza shops looking for a souvenir to save the memory.
