About Harbor Lane Court

35 years ago, I moved to Anna Maria Island from North Carolina and rented one of these apartments for a few years. It was a great place to call home. Today, I own it and have restored the entire property as though I was going to live in it. We pay attentions to details and created a home atmosphere at a vacation resort .I also have had a screen printing business on the island since 1985, so we're not absentee owners like a lot of rentals.We will be around to make sure your needs are met. Enjoy our home! It is owner maintained for quality assurance.

Harbor Lane Court purchased this condo in 2015

Why Harbor Lane Court chose Holmes Beach

I inherited this property from my dear friend and business partner, John Lach, who passed away in 2015. I could have sold it, but knew it would probably be torn down and another huge party house would go up instead. My partner Olga and I knew what a great little resort it would make, and tried to keep as much of it's 1962 charm as possible, like refinishing the terrazzo floors. We put in all new stainless steel appliances and replaced the tubs with low curb showers to get in and out of easier. I really would love to live here myself!

What makes this condo unique

The resort is unique for it's Old Florida charm and relaxing grounds. All units are full apartments with a separate bedroom, and a sleeper sofa in the living room. 4 families can rent the whole resort and have it all to themselves for the same price as one huge house, then everyone has their own kitchens and own space if they want to get away and have their privacy. Everything is provided for your stay, from coffee filters to beach chairs.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property is laid out so nicely with a common area with seating and pool, all encased in large palms for privacy. The unit we stayed in was immaculate with all brand new furnishings and appliances. Kitchen was well stocked. The owners thought of everything providing beach chairs, umbrellas, wagons,towels, coolers. Would definitely recommend to all.

We're will be too!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our recent stay at Harbor Lane Court. This small, quiet resort has a lovely ambience, both in the outdoor courtyard and pool area, as well as in the classy, charming units, decorated with much attention to detail. Owners Joan and Olga have clearly put their hearts into making this an ideal getaway spot, stopping in often to make improvements, give complete orientations to each new guest, and answer any questions. Our unit was spotlessly clean and thoroughly equipped with all we needed. We also made good use of the well-kept laundry room, as well as the beach carts, chairs and umbrellas available. As far as location, Harbor Lane Court seems ideally situated on Anna Maria Island. It's an easy walk to an uncrowded beach perfect for lounging, walking, dolphin-spotting and sunsets. Good restaurants and shops are also a short walk away. Harbor Lane Court is a find! We've already made plans to return next year, and highly recommend you give it a try.

Great place with Kids!

  • 5 of 5

We took down all four condos within friends and our kids. It was nice to have a heated pool and beach toys, carts and umbrellas for the beach. The common area was great. I was surprised at our cleaning check list, there was a lot to do even after paying a hefty cleaning fee. I would definitely stay there again! And try to do the same thing with 4 family's.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Erin. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our cleaning fees are in line with the other vacation rentals on the island, and we feel that we do not ask for anything more on our check out list than most rentals. Also, have you ever stayed in a cleaner rental than ours? We strive to make sure everyone gets started out on their vacation feeling like they're the first guests that ever rented there. We hope you and your friends come back and visit us again soon! Joan & Olga

Car: recommended

Our island is 2 hours away from Orlando's theme parks, Disney, and Sea World, and an hour away from Tampa and Busch Gardens. There is a miniature golf course, ice cream shoppes, shopping, lots of bars and great restaurants on Anna Maria Island, not to mention some of the most beautiful sugar white sand beaches in the world. We have a FREE trolley that runs from Coquina Beach (south end) to the Anna Maria City Pier (north end) from 7 am to 10 pm with stops about every 3-5 blocks, and picks up every approximately every 20 min. AMI is a much more laid back Old Florida kind of destination than many of the overgrown beach strands. It is truly paradise on the Gulf coast.
