About the Property

Spectacular heated pool/spa area, ample parking & just a short walk to the beach

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
