About Harbor Lane Court
38 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, my partner Olga and I own it and have restored the entire property as though we were going to live in it. We paid attention 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 Cottage in 2015
Why Harbor Lane Court chose Holmes Beach
We inherited this property from my dear friend and business partner, John Lach, who passed away in 2015. We 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 its 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 Cottage 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. We take pride in the cleanliness and tranquility that comes from vetting our guests before accepting booking requests instead of doing instant bookings where you could wind up with a fraternity party in the unit next to yours.

It is the details that makes it
It was all the details that struck me: the well equipped kitchen, the marked boxes with detergent etc, the kit with soap etc, the trolley and the beach chairs, the machines for washing and dishing etc. The house was clean and nicely painted and furnished and the pool was warm. Joan popped in to check that everything was ok and you could really feel that she cared for the guests and the property. The short walk to the beach was perfect. The road that passed just outside did not disturbed that much but it would have been even better without it. In total I dearly recommend Harbor Lane Court!
Thank you for your review, Lena! We enjoyed having your family here and hope you return for another relaxing island vacation!
Loved the location & care taken in every detail. Rental & property very clean, short walk to beach with beach chairs, umbrellas & cart to carry it all. Though we were busy with family it was nice to come back to place to relax at end of day.
Thanks for the review, Mike! We enjoyed having your family stay with us, and hope you consider coming back again.

We could not have been more pleased with our stay! This little four-unit place is completely updated with every modern amenity you could imagine. We were in the two-bedroom unit, and when we arrived it was spotless -- as clean as could be. This hidden gem is perfectly centrally located to do anything you want on the island. The heated pool was perfect for our nearly three-year-old grandson. The outdoor area was nice for lounging in the evening. The beach is a very, very short walk away. And the units have everything you need in the kitchen, for the beach, and in the pool. The owners were in constant contact with us, making sure that everything was OK and that we had all we needed (even on Thanksgiving weekend!). We have tried a number of different places in Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, and Longboat Key. This is BY FAR the best place we have ever stayed. We will most definitely stay here again (and hopefully again and again!). Thank you for a wonderful and very comfortable stay!
We're so glad your family enjoyed their stay, Tom. Thank you so much for your detailed review. It is very helpful to future guests to let them know that what they see in photos, and our descriptions, is what they get! We hope you stay with us again soon.

Excellent Beach Getaway!
This was a perfect place for a few of my family members to spend a pre-Thanksgiving getaway! We loved the close proximity to the beach, and we had all of our beach necessities included right outside our door. The location is great and you can easily get to some yummy restaurants nearby. The heated pool was an extra bonus on some of our chilly beach days. We all agreed we would love to come back!
We would love for you to all come back! Thank you for your review, Rachel, and thank you for staying with us!

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.
