I say "home" in the title and not "house" because this property was so beautiful, conmfortable and practicial, you'd think you were visting family, and not staying in a rental. With 3 bedrooms, large beds and closet space in each, everyone had room to spread out. TVs in each bedrooms, as well as the main room, meant no fighting about what to watch the one day it rained. There are two elegant bathrooms in the home, with the master ensuite with a double shower as well! And the kitchen! Nicer then my own, Without a doubt; what a joy it was cooking in there. There was also a BBQ just outside the back door to grill up a quick lunch or dinner. And trust me, you'll want to be outside! There is a salt water pool that you could float in for hours, and a hot tub for the cooler evenings that you can sit and stare at the twinkling stars. The beach was under 5 minute stroll from the property, i couldn't beleive how close it was. Overall, an amazing place, and one i can't wait to go back to!- Jenna , Posted:
Great Beach House!
My family loved this beach house, we were super close to the beach, it was accessible through the side door straight to the backyard for those who came with sandy feet. Everyone loved the spa at the pool. We had WiFi issues the first day we got here, but it was quickly resolved and very attentive customer service. The driveway was big enough for our two long vehicles, but again the location of this house I believe has the best beach in Anna Maria Island. We will definitely be coming back!- Susana C , Posted:
We arrived on saturday May 10th, and were very impressed with the cleanliness of the property. The house seems small from the outside, but inside is actually really big, boasting 3 fairly sized bedrooms. The beds were comfortable. The bedrooms were quite large and very well kept. There is a nice size living room and dining room along with a nice breakfast bar in the kitchen. The kitchen has a fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, and garbage disposal for your use. The weather was nice so the backyard with the heated pool and spa was a bonus. The pool was decorated lovely and even has a baby wadding area with a place for a umbrella to be placed. The backyard is nicely landscaped and maintained. The BBQ was ready to be used. Overall it is a very nice property and everyone enjoyed themselves.- sean , Posted:

Close to the beach
Just 4 minutes to the beach. Perfect location for 2 people.- Jochen B , Posted:
Retro and cool!
This place was so cool. It looks vintage 1950's or 60's but when you step in you realize it is completely updated with all the modern amenities you want yet the look is still so retro and authentic. Love the danish Modern/Mid Century furniture, decor and architecture. Easy walk to the beach or hang out by the pool. The yard is beautifu, peaceful and private.- Karen P , Posted:
We loved this home!

Loved our stay
Great modern clean property with pool in quiet neighborhood, close to beach access and free trolly to go into Anna Maria. Minor flaws are the loud AC and the shower drains (whole bathroom flooded after taking shower.) Also, there was no key to the patio.- Midwestern Tourist , Posted:
A good time
We enjoyed our time in the house, the stylish interior and the short walk to the beach. The house and the pool look bigger in the pictures. But we had a wonderful time in Holmes Beach- Oliver R , Posted:
We will definitely stay again
The house was beautiful, wonderfully decorated, super clean, great backyard and awesome pool. We loved everything about it and were so sad to leave. The kitchen was stocked with all utensils, dishes, cooking supplies, etc. So we were easily able to cook all our food and not eat out all the time. The block is nice too with quite a few lovely homes. The walk to the beach is super short. We will definitely stay here again.- Shannon G , Posted:
We absolutley loved this house and can't believe how inexpensive it is.
The Highlights: This is a three-bedroom house, despite what the listing says. One bedroom had a full-sized bed and ensuite wetroom/full bath. There's a bedroom with a king and another with a queen that share another wetroom/full bath. The living room is airy and comfortable, all the furniture is new, the kitchen is stocked with everything you could need, down to coffee filters.
Big beautiful heated pool and hot tub outside but the lounge chairs are dated and low quality. The pool is beautiful but needs a vacuum or other automated cleaner- it was full of leaves and dead bugs each morning. This is a cheap and simple fix that could improve its usability.
Perfect location on the adorable Anna Maria island. We rented bikes with our two toddlers and rode everywhere. Five minute walk to the beach, which is wide with beautiful white sand and shallow water. Perfect family vacation spot. We rented cribs, a beach waggon, and other kid items which were dropped at the house and were so easy. Will definitely vacation here again and will probably stay here.- Rachel O , Posted:

We have always wanted to stay at this cool property for years and we were not disappointed! Such a beautiful home exactly like the photos and the pool & spa were awesome. We found the hot water to be a bit quirky at times, but every home has quirks.it's a very popular home since we has 4-5 people stop and take pics and ask us about the house when they saw us in the front porch or by our car. The only negative was it was a bit noisy when all the weekly rentals surrounding the home had pool times together....still a very private pool space. 5 minute walk to the beach! it's one of our favorites and we have been coming to Anna Maria for 14 years! Such a beautiful interior decor!- Patrick F , Posted:
We were so impressed with the Service we received from Island Real Estate. We are already thinking about booking our next property through Island- William G , Posted:
Stayed here twice
We stayed twice at this house for two months during the winter season of 2016-2017 and 2017-2018, and it was a very postive experience. The house is clean, well appointed and well maintained and the location is good. There were a few issues with the house both times, but the rental company was very quick to resolve the problems. We enjoyed the salt water pool! The negatives about the house are the very loud HVAC system and the weekly renters in the house behind who were disruptive to an otherwise peaceful, lovely neighborhood.- Darwin and Doris R , Posted:
Wonderful stay, as always. Beautiful house, love the keypad entry.- Kathryn M , Posted:
Promise kept was lovely, stylish house with excellent location.- Ann-Mari H , Posted:
