About Douglas Hall

Douglas Hall purchased this House in 2003
Why Douglas Hall chose Holmes Beach
Perfectly located steps from a quiet, white sand beach with the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico. Roomy three bedroom/three bathroom house. Free trolley stops on both ends of the street. Convenient to shops and restaurants.
What makes this House unique
Peace and quiet in an old Florida house on an old Florida island. The perfect get away.

Close to beach.
Doug was very nice. House was kid friendly,and relaxing. I was not aware that it provided no extra toiletries,shampoo,laundry/dishwasher soap. (Or a bit of each to get us started). But overall for the price and location. It can't be beat!!!!
Spacious, clean and great location!
House was perfect for our family of 6. Our two teenage boys loved their space in the large back bedroom. Very nice peaceful walk to the beach down the street. Nice residential area.. felt very safe and quiet . Beach is beautiful.
Good value, excellent location!
Location, location, location! Anna Maria Island is truly a slice of paradise. And this large and comfortable beachhouse is located just two minutes walk from an absolutely fabulous, yet uncrowded, beach.
The house is much larger and nicer than the few photos suggest: three big bedrooms and three full baths give plenty of space and privacy. We're a family of five, but the house would be suitable even for six or seven persons. Caveat: you have to walk through one of the bedrooms and one of the bathrooms to get to the master bedroom at the back of the house. Thus the bedroom and bathroom in the middle of the house are not very private (but for our 8 year old son it worked out perfectly).
We also loved the well equipped kitchen, the cosy living room and the separate dining area.
The house isn't new, but it's clean and nicely redecorated on the inside. The exterior could need some maintenance. There is a back yard, but a nicer place to sit outdoors would be a great advantage.
The host Doug was very kind and helpful. When we had a problem getting into the house he was very quick to respond and help us.
There are plenty of wonderful houses on Anna Maria Island, and some are certainly more luxurious than this one. But considering the price, this house is really good value, very comfortable even for a big family and an extraordinary location for a wonderful and relaxing vacation.

This charming home was pe...
This charming home was perfect for our family of 5. Plenty of room and it was so easy to walk, ride bikes or take the free trolley to any place on the island. The large back suite allowed kids to enjoy a movie while we had guests over for dinner. We really liked the small town feel of strolling down the dead end street to a sparsely populated beach at sunset. We definitely plan on coming back here next year!
