Recent Holmes Beach reviews

  • Close to the beach, lots of space. Only a few minor issues.

    "We are a family of 8 traveling to AMI to spend a week (we're still here, leaving on the 15th). I wasn't sure what to expect from the pictures provided, other than it looked like there was enough space for all of us to eat and be comfortable while we were here. In this regard, we weren't disappointed. The kitchen was stocked with pans/utensils, the beds were as advertised and there was plenty of seating options. One thing I wish we had known before we came was that there at least 7-8 beach towels already here. We ended up bringing our own and dedicated a whole carry-on just for that. Also, the garage has about 5 serviceable lawn chairs and a few rusty old school type chairs that could potentially be used. There are also a few umbrellas and 2 kayaks in there. If you're thinking about renting or buying chairs...don't. The carpet and the sectional are dingy and could use some deep cleaning, but being so close to the beach I don't expect it to be spotless. On to my minor gripes: -Shower head in the master bathroom was detached and just hanging there. We had to reattach it. It also looks like they used electrical tape for...something?!? -This house is plagued with electrical gremlins. Lights turn off and on randomly, by themselves. Sometimes when the AC kicks, sometimes not. -A day after pest control came and sprayed the property, I found a bug crawling on my forehead while sleeping in the master bedroom. After inspecting the floor under the window and finding 4-5 more that appeared to be dying, and then looking on the window sill itself and seeing insect wings, I am pretty confident that what we found were termites. Yeah...probably common in these parts, but still, it wasn't the best way to wake up in the morning. Other than that, we were pleased. It's a short walk to the beach, Walgreens is 1 block away. Mr Bones BBQ is like a 3 minute walk away, if that. The house is centrally located so you're in the middle of everything. There's also a trolley stop across the street."

  • A Bit of Paradise

    "I've been coming to Anna Maria Island for 16 years. Have always stayed down south on the beach, this was my first time staying in Holmes Beach. It was the best of both worlds - a short walk to the beach for gulf swimming; a heated pool and grill right in the backyard for meals and an evening swim. The house was very clean, well appointed and conveniently located. Extremely relaxing vacation! If available, I would happily stay there next year."

  • Wonderful home to enjoy this beautiful island...Everything was very welcoming and user friendly!

    "What a wonderful house that was welcoming and extremely well thought out!! We had a family of 4 and had no problems! We were there in October first of November so nights were starting to get chilly so pool needs to be warmer and sliding door out to patio was wonderful but hard to open and close... The hot tub was great but temperamental sometimes it wouldn't heat up..... But these were little things that didn't bother us much! All in all I would rent it again no problems!!! We loved it!!"

  • Beautiful New Home-Walk to Beach

    "My family and I had a wonderful time at this property. Pros: Almost every room had an ensuite bath. The beds/linens were very comfortable. The kitchen had adequate pots, pans, plenty of dishes, glass and dinnerware. Walking distance to Publix, CVS, beaches, and shopping. There were tv's in every room and also by pool. The wireless sound system was superb! Welcome basket was nice surprise. The property comes with a "starter package": 2 soaps, 2 rolls toilet paper per bath, 3 pods( dw) and 3oz of dishwashing detergent, 1 roll paper towels, trash bags in wastebaskets. In my past experiences, I have found that these types of properties are replace as you use, (previous renters left, dish & laundry detergent). The house lacked food wrap,(aluminum foil, saran wrap) food storage bags, trash bags, a spice rack. Needs more unbreakable glass/pool area. We purchased all & left behind(w/exception spice rack), for next tenants. I found lack of spices very disappointing, cooking on the grill & enjoying meals together was one of the draws of this property. Unseasonably cold the first 2 days of our stay (41*)- the pool heater could not keep up with the low temps. The pool was advertised as heated but note, it was only heated if outside air temp is below 65*. The system shut down at night/ it seemed the heater could not recover. For a rental of this caliber & average temps January/ AMI- 65*, it would be nice to have an adequately heated pool. (We are from N.E. & are used to cold water, the pool was COLD). Pool company came out at end of our stay because the filter was not working properly. The next door neighbors were installing a driveway & pavers around their pool. The noise & dust that blew over the fence made it difficult to enjoy the outside pool area. (I believe this contributed to the pool filter issue).We understood that this & weather was beyond the owners control just a bummer to have happen during vacation ); Check-In/Check-Out Time: 4pm check-in, paired w/10am check out; together you are losing almost a day of paid time. I did request & receive a later check out but only because the property was not booked. 5 beach chairs and a great wagon for beach, also pool/beach toys on hand. The rental information binder could use a copy of the recycle guidelines. I did contact Kimberly regarding the lack of trash bags & the pool heater. Her responses & solutions were timely and professional."
