Why The Owner chose Holmes Beach

This is truly a paradise! Anna Maria has a laid-back attitude - no high rises and throngs of tourists here. The people are super friendly, the beach and Gulf are absolutely gorgeous, and you are close to Bradenton and Sarasota so can enjoy all they have to offer - it's simply perfect!

Incredible owners, gorgeous townhome!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This rental far exceeded our expectations. It is huge and exactly as advertised. The rate was beyond reasonable and all of our friends and family enjoyed it immensely. Grandpa was especially please to have his own bedroom and bathroom on the main floor. I was personally impressed by the size and comfort of the master bedroom suite, the children were thrilled to have their own room. My daughter has asthma, so I usually go in ahead of the family and clean anytime we rent anywhere including hotels. Imagine my shock when I could not find a speck of dust or cobweb anywhere in the place including under beds, behind dressers and on the ceiling fans. The cleaning crew is impeccable. We loved the free trolley that took us anywhere we wanted to go and the amazing views of the preserve behind the home.
This place felt like someone's high end home with everything you could ever need including beach toys for the kids! Although it was a small hike to the beach, the location for the price was excellent.
If you are looking for a great family home for your anna maria island visit, book now before someone else snatches it up! Thanks Crestie and David for sharing your home

Great retreat to celebrate Independence Day!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a fabulous week long vacation in Anna Maria/Holmes Beach. The location was fabulous, we were literally a five minute walk to the beautiful beach. Right across the street from Publix, Walgreens, Dollar Store, and several great restaurants. Location could ONLY have been better if we were ON the beach but we weren't willing to pay beach prices.

The townhouse was well equipped with lawn chairs, a small cooler, grill, sand buckets for the kids, puzzles and a few other things that we didn't think to bring. Not sure what I expected but I was a little shocked to arrive to no toilet paper, paper towel, etc. Not necessarily a bad thing, I guess we're just used to hotels so luckily the store was right across the street :)

The home itself is pretty much what you see in the pictures, it was very well maintained, has a couple minor maintenance issues but certainly were not impediments. I will warn the townhouse is three stories. You walk into a foyer and then up the stairs you go so I wouldn't recommend this place for someone with bad knees or walking impediments. It had a garage which came in handy especially when it came to housing our super cute golf cart. You can get to many places by golf cart as long as you are on neighborhood roads or cutting through parking lots. For us the golf cart was well worth it and added to the experience.

We were pleased to find five balconies, so much fresh air right outside our bedrooms. Awesome! The upstairs has the two twins beds with a great big walk in closet and the master bedroom which was HUGE. The upstairs definitely stayed warmer than downstairs which was like an ice box. The downstairs bedroom has a full size bed, no closet, teeny room but adequate. Having three full bathrooms was great too with a large crowd. Although this was a pet friendly unit there were NO signs of pets which was nice.

We would DEFINITELY stay here again if Dave and Crestie would have us. They were great at responding to our questions immediately, very friendly and have priced their home very reasonably. We found so many rentals comparably priced and after they added astronomical cleaning and pet fees they were $400 more in some cases. We are so appreciative, thank you!

This is an AWESOME place!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I arrived to a super clean, beautifully decorated, spacious townhouse! Everything we neede and more was there, just like home. We had our children and parents with us and there was more than enough space. Beach wagon, chairs, floats, toys for the kids, coolers - couldn't believe it was all there! Plenty of towels and bedding and the bedrooms were super comfy. This is a great location because you are close to the market, a few shops and restaurants and the gorgeous beach at the end if the road (it almost felt private but you could still easily walk to the public beach if you wanted). We used the golf cart during our stay and this was so great - made everything even more convenient. We really liked the pool too since there are private bathrooms and a nice shade awning if you need it (many days we did!). The owners are extremely nice and easy to deal with. We had a question about the grill and ended up chatting with them about all kinds of other stuff - super nice and honest (a worry for me as I had been leery of booking site unseen). The reviews don't do it justice (didn't experience anything negative) - very clean and a great value! We will definitely be back! Thanks for a great vacation!

So Great!

  • 5 of 5
Just got caught up from a great vacation and wanted to make sure to say thank you for such a perfect vacation home. Everything was super clean and extremely comfortable when we arrived which is very important to me and my mother who was traveling with us. The place was very pretty and beachy with plenty of light, several balconies and porches, lovely bedrooms and plenty of room for our family (there were 9 of us total). The pictures do not do it justice - we were pleasantly surprised at just how nice and clean it really was. We also really liked the location since we could walk everywhere and the golf cart got us around easily; we never had to get in the car if we didn't want to. It was really nice to have the garage and the extra parking (husband loved that). Plenty of beach towels, floats and coolers for the beach and everything we needed in the house. We also liked that there were TV's in every room since with that many people everyone could watch what they wanted at night. We were able to grill out right on the porch off the living area although we liked going out to dinner more since there are so many good restaurants on the island. The people on Anna Maria are so nice and the beaches there are the most beautiful I've ever seen. The one at the end of the street had great sand and pretty water and was almost like a semi-private beach. So great for our big crowd! The pool was great too; the kids loved it and so did we. (make sure to bring bug spray for dusk since the no-see-ums like to bite without it) We couldn't recommend this place enough - beautiful home, nice owners, clean, affordable, and convenient. We've already booked next August for the week before school starts and have begun counting the days!

Buyer Beware

  • 1 of 5
Buyer Beware! This rental was not what was advertised. My family headed to our destination during a tropical storm (no fear, we're from Florida and we're used to it... we knew it would pass) only to find the place so disgusting that we actually turned around and made the two hour drive back home. We never even unpacked. In fact, my wife wouldn't even take her shoes off.

We looked at the reviews before renting and only saw one bad one in 2010, but the rest were good so we figured everything had been fixed. Unfortunately, everything mentioned in the bad review from 2010 was still an issue. To mention a few things.... the carpet was stained and nasty, the blinds in one room literally fell off the wall when I tried to open them, floor tiles were chipped, doors didn't close right, the walls were damaged, there was dust everywhere, and the garage wasn't even cleaned out enough to park in. Getting a partial refund was almost impossible even though we didn't even stay one night. I had to threaten to go to small claims court for misrepresting the unit in order to get the owner to agree to give me anything but the golf cart fee back.

We've rented from this site before and never had a problem so this was a total shock. After this was all over, I waited two months to post this review, trying to give the owner the benefit of the doubt. I was hoping the owner would update some pictures that my wife and I expressed were gross misrepresentations of the property, yet those pictures remain. I would not recommend this property to anybody and my experience makes me feel like it is not only misrepresented but PURPOSELY misprepresented, which is even worse. Buyer beware, what you see is not always what you get.

Owner's Response: WOW-we're more than shocked by this considering our experience with these guests... They arrived at the beginning of Tropical Storm Debby and quite simply, because weather was not so great, wanted to leave and be fully refunded (didn't want to be stuck inside with several small children, we suppose). They called later the evening of their arrival and asked what the refund policy was due to inclement weather. When we explained that refunds are given when there are hurricanes but not for 'bad weather' (which passed quickly, incidentally, which is typical in FL), they hung up, came up with a new plan, called back later and stated they were dissatisfied with the accommodations. We thought this odd since we were at the townhouse when they arrived at 2pm and all was great. They stayed several more hours, and all was great. It wasn't until being told there would not be a refund for bad weather that they became "dissatisfied".

The comments they've left here are grossly (to use their own words) misrepresenting our property. We have indeed updated our photos, even adding additional photos since we suspected these guests would do exactly this. You see, once they left, the threatening emails began. If we didn't agree to refund all of their money (which, by the way, deposits, golf carts fees, and several nightly fees were refunded), they would post negative reviews here. We had to remind them this is what is commonly called extortion, before they finally stopped. It's unfortunate that as property owners, we can be libeled in such a fashion, as an act of malice, without truly being able to defend ourselves with nothing more than our words and that of other guest reviews. In fact, we think it's obvious from past reviews (both before and right AFTER this guest) that the claims here are unfounded and, to put it blatantly, lies. And we are more than shocked, considering the correspondence we had with these guests, that they would do exactly what they threatened even though we clearly compromised (I have the written correspondence to prove it).

Yes, this is a vacation rental - there might be chips in the Mexican tile (it does that) and scuffs on the wall (it's re-painted every year!). But when guests let us know that something is amiss and needs repair, it is done. Again, just look to our other reviews to confirm this.

I hope a gross misrepresentation of our home does not unfairly influence anyone from enjoying a comfortable, CLEAN, & enjoyable vacation with us.
