Just a short walk to beach. Suite fine for 2 people. Has everything you need. Can see gulf from living room window. Has gazebo with picnic table but no-see-ems ate us alive. Parking area needs mowed.

Can't get better than beach front...

  • 5 of 5

We needed an extra space and this one bed (king) one bath Kitchenette worked great. It's right on the beach and there's a big shade tree right out the front door where we found ourselves gathering.

sweet bungalow

  • 4 of 5

We chose Suite Retreat because we wanted to be directly on the beach. The beach in that part of Holmes Beach is very uncrowded and beautiful. The inside is more than adequate. If your priorities are to be outside and enjoy the beach, this is the place for you. You can see the gulf from the living area and your bedroom window. At night you can hear the waves.

It was neat and clean and had everything you needed (except a dust pan). We would return.

Holmes Beach Cottage

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on AMI and the Mother-in-law suite was the perfect size for two. The area was off the busy road and very quiet. It is close to the grocery store and a lot of shopping. If you plan on a short stay or won't do much cooking, this place is perfect. There is no counter space to prepare for cooking, having to use a cutting board on top of the stove before starting the cooking. We had to set the toaster oven on the small stool by an outlet to use and found we had to preheat it before using it to toast so the bread didn't dry out. A new one would be nice. There are plenty of dishes, silverware and cooking utensils but a smaller casserole or two would be very helpful for making smaller servings. There is not an iron so more hangers would be nice so our clothes don't have to stay folded on the shelf and be wrinkled when putting them on. The washer and dryer is located just outside the door going into the garage and would be nice if it could be shared with the other unit. When it is in use, it does run loud and a nice compensation for the noise would be able to also use it. We will be back on the island next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! We at Team Duncan are available 24/7, and any issues that a guest may have, can and should be addressed during their stay, and we will do our very best to accommodate the guest's needs. We have already addressed many of your concerns, as we want our guests to enjoy their stay in paradise. We have added casserole dishes, a new iron and ironing board, a new toaster, and plenty of hangers. We have posted signs on the property and in the check-in binder for the main house stating that the washing machine and dryer are not to be used from the hours of 10pm to 9am. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay, and we hope to have you visit with us again! Make sure to inquire about our return guest discount. Thank you, Team Duncan Duncan Real Estate

Location, location, location!

We were desperate to escape the Ohio winter but couldn't find a vacancy to our liking until we found this little gem! We obviously waited til the last minute as this is high season in AMI. We weren't sure what to expect, but if a private location on the beach is what you're after, this could be it. This is not a deluxe rental, but the unit was clean (except for a very dirty bathroom fan that we opted not to use); the king-size bed extremely comfortable – the linens were plush and plentiful, even beach towels were provided. The kitchen was well stocked with newer dishes and glassware, silverware, utensils, dish towels, pot holders, etc. We couldn't find a broom and dust pan but a quick call to Duncan Real Estate and Eric dropped off a brand new set while we were at the beach. AMI was crowded last week, but once we turned onto 48th Street, we found seclusion! Our beach wasn't crowded, we saw no one walking nearby and even the unit next door was so quiet. We only saw the people once or twice in passing. If the owners would make a few inexpensive purchases, this place would be so much nicer! The coffee maker has reached the end of its useful life, as has the somewhat ancient microwave and toaster oven. Just replacing these items would make a huge improvement. Not sure if anyone uses a toaster oven any more? We were afraid to try it! I assume the small, antique dresser in the bedroom was clean but we were hesitant to use it for our clothes so kept them folded on the large shelf unit in the bedroom. A new(er), bigger dresser would be a welcome addition. The bedroom doesn't have a closet, though there is a sturdy portable clothing rack. However, the addition of hooks (big ones) would help tremendously. There is only one towel bar in the tiny bathroom. A couple of hooks on the back of the bathroom door would be great. A new, thick rug outside the door would help catch sand before entering the house. We went to Dollar Tree and purchased a dish pan that we filled with water and kept by the door for rinsing our feet before entering. The refrigerator was older, but very clean inside and out. The décor was cottage-cute. The “welcome book” was missing, so we were a little unclear on laundry; how to use the remote for the TV along with channels; that sort of thing. Nonetheless, we definitely enjoyed our stay and plan to return next year! Definitely recommended!
