We recently renovated and redecorated with a vision to retain the quaint, cozy, cottage charm. The address is 107 81st St. Holmes Beach, FL 34217. The property is a duplex.

One king size bed, and one queen with dressers, closets, televisions and all new carpet. There are 1 1/2 bathrooms. The full bath has a tub and shower. You'll find a fully equipped kitchen with stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. All new appliances and granite counter tops. The washer and dryer is in the attached garage. Outside you'll find outdoor furniture and a bbq grill. The garage is stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and a cart to pull it all to the beach.
Gulf Rhythms is perfectly located in the center of the island, in Holmes Beach. The island is only 7 miles long and is made up of three cities; Anna Maria, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach. It's a quick bike ride, walk, drive or trolley ride to Anna Maria pier, Holmes Beach shops, Publix grocery store, and several restaurants. Bradenton Beach is on the south end of the island and provides more shops and eateries on Bridge Street.
The island boasts many wonderful restaurants, even the 5 star Zagat rated Beach Bistro is just down the street. For a nice dinner, try The Waterfront across from the Anna Maria Pier. The Feast is located in the Holmes Beach plaza and has great pizza and fish sandwiches! If ice cream is your weakness, pick up a cone at Two Scoops in Anna Maria or the Hometown Creamery in Holmes Beach. Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach has The Bridge Street Bistro, The Freckled Fin, and The Bridge Tender which has a waterfront casual bar outside.
Anna Maria Island has lots of activities for the water lover. You can rent kayaks, take paddle board lessons, go on a fishing charter or even rent a boat for the day. You can also rent bicycles and golf carts.
There is a free trolley that runs 7 days a week from one end of the island to the other. There is a trolley stop conveniently located at the end of our street. Parking on the island is at a minimum, so taking the trolley or riding a bike is recommended.
