About Jayne Christenson

We are a working couple with one child. We have lived in the main house for the past 11 years. Our parents lived here prior to us. We have recently started to rent out the cottage after our mother moved in to Bradenton. The cottage is attached at the back of the main house with its own private entrance off of 2nd Avenue. We are quiet and keep the property well maintained and clean. We rarely use the pool area and respect our guest's privacy.

Jayne Christenson purchased this House in 1988

Why Jayne Christenson chose Holmes Beach

Close to the beach. Comfortable and friendly neighborhood. Lots of sunshine around the pool and yard.

What makes this House unique

Your own private driveway and entrance. Close to the best beaches on the island and in a quiet, safe, friendly, residential neighborhood. The pool area is for the guests renting the cottage.

                                                              We enjoyed a delightful week in this lovely accommodation. So much was thoughtfully provided including a welcome package with chocolates, cakes and wine. We missed a teapot (for making good 'English' tea!) and a washing machine but they were minor matters and might have been there anyway, with us too relaxed to find them !

                                                              The island is indeed a paradise, at least out of hurricane season, and the house location really convenient: a very short walk to the each and to the first class free trolley route.

                                                              Altogether, a really memorable stay.

It’s too bad the weather did not cooperate.it was cool for Florida and blustery, the meteorological favorite word. I enjoyed my stay, but I am ready to go home. Marge B

                                                              Ms B.,

                                                              Thank you for staying at my cottage. I really enjoyed meeting and talking with you during your stay. The temperature averages in March on the island range from 77 degrees for the high and lows avg 58. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

                                                              A Very special place

                                                              Nice updated decor and very clean and neat

                                                              Not only was it cozy and comfortable and private, but owner provided many amenities and little extras that made us feel like we were in our own home.

                                                              Perfect size for two people. Would definitely come back!

                                                              This is a fantastic hideaway.

                                                              My husband and I absolutely loved the property. The owner was so accommodating and available for us when we needed anything. We have booked for next year!

                                                              ideal location and accommodation

                                                              We spent two weeks here and found the whole experience what we had imagined. A two minute walk to the beach on along a quiet road and a similar walk in the opposite direction to the trolley bus stop for the free transport the length of Anna Maria island. if we return which we hope to do, no more hired car. Not needed.

                                                              The accommodation is extremely well appointed and comfortable and well equipped and then there is the heated pool and the barbecue. Great place to stay and highly recommended.

                                                              Ian and Eileen,

                                                              So glad you enjoyed your stay! I hope some day to see you on your beautiful Isle of Tiree at The Old Smithy.

                                                              A perfect place for a couple

                                                              Very nice and well maintained cottage. We stayed there from the 11th of Nov to the 18th. It's just a walk away from the beach. We thought it was a quiet and calm neighborhood.

                                                              Perfect with the pool area in the afternoon when you got back from the beach.

                                                              We will definitely come back!
