About Deborah Molto

My husband Cam and I live in a small town close to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. Cam has visited the island for the past five years. I have traveled to the island since I was a child and have many fond memories of my time spent on Anna Maria. We love that the island has preserved its old Florida charm and consider it to be our second home. Although we have seen some changes over the years what has not changed is the beautiful white beaches and relaxed family atmosphere. It is a place that will keep drawing you back, guaranteed!

Come relax at Heliconia House and enjoy the beautiful warmth and sunshine of Anna Maria Island! You can start your morning going for a stroll along the beach or play a game of tennis at the nearby courts. Anglers can catch their breakfast by launching their boat across the street and go fishing in the sound. Or enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the Beach Cafe. Spend the afternoon lounging by your own private pool or comb the north end of the island for shells. In the evening walk to the many near by restaurants or grill your own grouper on the covered porch. The next day rent a sea doo and head to Egmont key or go para sailing over the gulf. There is so much to do you will just have to return. Of course, you can just lay out at the beach all week!

Top Class Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice vacation rental - in fact it is more like a well loved home than a rental, and I know that is what it is. Perfect quiet location in a friendly neighbourhood and a short walk to the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jonathan. Yes, our neighborhood is older, but friendly, exactly like the old Florida that once existed.

We loved the house and the island

  • 5 of 5

Small, very comfortable, fully equipped, clean and delightful. Lovely pool, great bikes, inflatables for the pool and beach chairs etc. Location was perfect for the trolley bus and cycle everywhere. Close to the watet on bay and gulf side. Ample parking, very quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience

Clean, pet-free, updated cottage with a private pool: who could ask for anything more?

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting homes on Anna Maria Island (Holmes Beach) for the past 5 years and Heliconia House was the best! It's a short walk to the trolley, City Hall (where we had meetings), and 3 short blocks to the beach. I have pet allergies, so finding a pet-free home on the Island is not all that easy. Some homes don't allow renter's pets, but you can tell they've had their own pets on the premises. I had no allergic reactions during the week.

Because this is an older home, it is all one level: none of those annoying stairs to climb to reach the main living area. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and there is a desk in the guest bedroom. The kitchen has all the utensils and cookware you need if you like to cook on vacation. The large patio table on the lanai seats six and we ate our meals outside all the time. A stacked washer and dryer is inside the unit, too.

There are two bicycles at the house and we used them every day to sightsee and to ride to the beach. There was a beach cart and chairs available but we preferred to travel with just towels to the beach. An included bike lock kept us from worrying that the bikes would disappear. When we weren't at the beach or riding the bikes, we relaxed in the heated pool. The fences and landscaping provide privacy from the surrounding homes so you feel like you are in your own little paradise. It was wonderful!!

The house is near one of the city's boat ramps and we watched the Dragon Boat crew go out on their 3 times a week paddles.

Simple and quiet

This is the perfect home to escape to if you're looking for a quiet neighborhood. We parked our cars and biked everywhere. It was the perfect getaway. I will certainly be back!

Absolutely perfect spot.

  • 5 of 5

This little place was just what my husband and I needed to do a bit of R&R.

We are both native Floridans and this Anna Maria/Holmes beach is always our fav go to for vacation.

Although I usually prefer beach side the private pool was a definite drawing point. Worked out perfect for us as we love walking so the 3 blocks to the beach was no problem.

This place has everything you could possibly want. I felt like I had decorated and furnished to my tastes as our our rental we had. Even down to the candles ;). Kitchen very well stocked. Towels super plush. Beds were so comfy.

Would highly recommend this rental as the owner is a jewel to work with.

We will be going back here for sure.
