About the Property
Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
Our small, five unit complex is right on the Gulf, with spacious, tropical gardens, beach front patios and grills, and an individual sun patio to call your own, complete with table, chairs, and umbrella. Relax and read the paper in the mornings, or enjoy supper and watch the sunset.
The interior is decorated with a tropical flair, including rattan furniture in the bedroom, dining room, and living area- but we've kept and reupholstered everyone's favorite vintage easy chairs. Be sure to look at our framed collection of black and white beach photos taken on the property in the 1930's and 1940's.
The bedroom has a king-sized bed and walk-in closet. The queen size sleeper sofa in the living room accommodates two more people comfortably.
The Cafe on the Beach for all-you-can-eat pancake breakfasts, casual lunches, and relaxing dinners is just a few steps away. Grocery stores and restaurants are 3 blocks away, and the free trolley will take you up and down the Island.
We have three other VRBO units available on this property- VRBO 77482 and VRBO 327896 (our duplex cottage) and VRBO 738184, which is fairly similar to this one.

Year Purchased: 1971
About: Hi! Our family has owned this property since 1971. My grandparents built it as their retirement home, and now it belongs to us. My mom, Gladys, is on the left in this photo, and that's me, Alice, on the right. Mom passed away in 2014, but her spirit of hospitality continues. I live up in Tampa, and visit the beach every weekend with my husband and family.
Why Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
Our family has always loved the Island, especially this spot, since my grandparents had friends from Tampa who lived close by. The apartment has a beautiful view of the beach across a garden and wildflower meadow. Our gulf-front patio has towering Australian pine trees, so you can sit in the shade on hot days, and feel a glorious breeze. The patio adjacent to the apartment is perfect for sunbathing even in the winter, because it's shielded from the wind. The Island has an old-fashioned small town vibe, so you can leave your cares behind.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our apartment is part of our five-unit family-owned complex, all one story duplexes. Our guests tell us they love the ease of walking out the door right onto a patio to read the paper, grill out, or just relax, without the hassle of stairs and long walks often found in condominiums. Families especially appreciate it, since the beach is just across the meadow it's easy to take the little ones to the water's edge, without a long walk toting 'beach stuff.' This year, we had a family of green herons nest in one of the pine trees, and everyone enjoyed waiting for the eggs to hatch. We also had a turtle's nest right on the beach in front of our place!
