This wonderful 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom property is way more than just a place to eat and sleep. It is one half of an elevated duplex in the heart of Holmes Beach. The duplex is offset so the two units are not totally side by side offering more privacy. The living area is a comfortable 1050 square feet which is much bigger when you take into consideration the screened and covered front porch and open deck. They are all on the same level and wrap around from the front door on the side to the sliding glass doors in the front.
The living room, kitchen, dining area, hallway and guest bathroom have Mexican tile which is cool to the feet. The living room has a large flat screen TV which is one of four. The other TVs are in both bedrooms and the outdoor room which can been seen from the spa and pool. The white denim furniture is comfortable and the sofa has a pull-out sleeper.
The dining area is fun in a Florida Funky way. It has seating for six with different colored chairs with a large white table. The kitchen is open with off white appliances. There is a food pantry with sliding shelves. The refrigerator has a filter and dispenses water and ice through the door. The kitchen is well appointed with everything one needs to cook a meal.
The master bedroom has all new furniture. The king size bed is fit for a king and queen. Look out the window and there is a great view of the pool and the royal palms. The closet has a has additional drawers, shelves and plenty of area to hang clothes. The master bath has been totally remodeled with a natural slate and has a rain shower with glass shower doors.
The guest bedroom has two twin beds. It is close to the guest bathroom which has a tub/shower combination.
The pool area is resort quality and is a great place for family and friends. The pool is heated and has a hot tub in the middle section of the pool with room for six. There is a lovely mermaid nearby watching out for all. The wood deck surrounds the pool and is at the same height from the pool all the way to the outdoor room leaving plenty of choices for you to lounge the day away. The royal palms are stately and give a tropical feel to the area.
The outdoor room has a custom tiki bar that comfortably seats four and has a convenient refrigerator for beverages. There is a wall mounted TV which can be seen from many areas of the deck and pool. The balance of the lower area is a storage room which has an automatic garage door with room for a gulf cart or a couple of scooters. There is still plenty of room for beach gear bikes.
Parking is not a problem here. In addition to the golf cart garage there is off street parking for four cars.
We have been islanders for many years but now reside in the mountains of Western North Carolina in Asheville. Anna Maria Island is close to our hearts and we are very fortunate to have many fond memories of the time we have spent there. We particularly enjoy the laid back lifestyle and all this unique island has to offer. Not to worry about us, we still visit this island as often as our busy life permits.
Jeff Kenrick purchased this house in 1988
This is the first property we ever purchased back in 1988. We have bought and sold many others on the island but this is the one we have always kept. The location is the perfect combination of convenience and privacy and has been the home to many happy tenants. We recently decided to convert one half of the duplex to a vacation rental. We have spared no expense in putting in the heated pool/spa and surrounding deck. We also have converted some of the storage area to a fantastic outdoor room.
Visitors come to the island to enjoy the weather and numerous outdoor activities. Your accommodations should enhance the experience. Our property does just that. We have a state of the art heated pool and hot tub surrounded by over 800 square feet of wood decking. Just off the deck area is a 250 square feet out door room that is can be used for many activities. We have a screened and covered front porch which is ideal for 'bug-free' people watching as they parade to and from the beach. There is also an elevated open deck great for grilling or just lounging.
The new pool is heated and has an oval shaped hot tub that will seat five people. One end of the pool has a sun shelf great for basking in the sun. The other end has a bench with a cocktail table perfect for enjoying your favorite beverage. The pool curves around the home and is surrounded by beautiful Royal Palm trees giving it a tropical feel. You will find that there is always some sunny areas and some shaded areas no matter the time of day.
Parking on the island can be a challenge in many areas. Gulf carts have become more and more popular and many rental shops rent them. We have added a garage with an automatic garage door opener with room for a gulf cart or a couple of scooters. In addition, there is covered parking for two vehicles and room in the concrete driveway for two more.
Rent both sides!
Families and or friends can enjoy each other on a vacation and still have the luxury of their own space. Imagine, two master bedrooms, two guest bedrooms, four bathrooms, two full kitchens, two pool areas all with ample off street parking.
A sparkling clean and well-kept house in a perfect location, just steps to the beach. We especially loved the pool area with tiki bar and hot tub. There were plenty of rafts and beach chairs, and 2 bikes. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the upper balcony looking out at the lush landscaping. Although we mostly ate out at the wonderful island restaurants, the kitchen was very well stocked with utensils, pots, pans, etc. The owners were very attentive and even called to make sure everything was perfect. We highly recommend this property and hope to book again next year!
This cozy place is perfect for 1 family. Me, my 2 kids, and my dad and step mom and there was planty of room. The patio and pool area are the nicest I've ever seen. The tiki bar is incredible and the tv is the perfect finishing touch. Jeff has everything you would need to go to the beach as well. We'll definitely be staying there again.
We had a wonderful time during our week stay. We have two toddlers so we were worried about the distance to the beach. Luckily, the beach was a very easy, quick walk from the house! The pool area was great! Lots of shade during the heat of the day. We spend a lot of time at the pool. The trolley stop was right at the end of the street so if you're interested in catching the free trolley it's very close. The kids loved riding around!
Our family had the most wonderful time at this vacation home. Right from the beginning the owner was responsive and accommodating, making sure all our questions and needs were met. The home is the perfect getaway for a quiet, peaceful beach vacation. The home has absolutely everything you need to make your stay at Anna Maria Island even more perfect! If you like to cook, the kitchen is so well equipped, it has Henckles knives, excellent cookware, blender and more. The backyard and pool is the real gem of the property though, its a tropical oasis with its stunning views and many huge mature palm trees. If you're a family with young children like us, you'll find it so helpful to have a a beach wagon, beach umbrella, sun chairs, beach toys and rafts, among the things provided. There are so many little things provided that make your stay that much more enjoyable. This is our 3rd time to Anna Maria Island, and we have finally found the property that we will always come back to.
My family had an amazing time at this home. The pool area was a perfect escape from reality, with the pool, spa, and bar/eating area. My kids, age 13 and 10, loved spending their days at the pool, which even included rafts. We also enjoyed breakfast on the screened in porch. It was a very easy and short walk to the beach. They had everything you would need for the beach and a beach wagon to get it there. It was a nice and quiet neighborhood also. We would definitely recommend it to anyone and we wish we were still there floating in the pool.
This lovely property is located on a very special island. From the duplex it is a short walk to the beach, trolley stops, great restaurants and shops.
The owners are very gracious and so easy to work with. When I had questions, they got back to me immediately.
The duplex is so cute and very comfortable. At one point there were four of us and it never felt crowded. The master bathroom is gorgeous! The kitchen has everything you would need, including a great knife set (something I found lacking in previous rentals).
As for the pool and tiki bar……….absolutely beautiful. After a day on the beach, I and my guests would head to the pool where we would enjoy a cocktail (or two) at the tiki bar.
And the screened front porch is a great spot to enjoy breakfast and watch the parade of those heading to the beach, the dog walkers, bicyclists, etc. Or just sit and read.
AMI is a piece of paradise and so is this duplex!
