Nice House, Close to Beach

  • 5 of 5
We had a great experience. The house was beautiful and well-maintained. It was close (a block) to the beach. The house was as described. Anna Maria Island is great, with beautiful beaches, good restaurants, and a free bus which runs all day. The breakfast place in the strip mall at the end of Holmes Blvd. is great, but crowded,

Had a great time. Enjoyed the convenience of the ocean to the house. Description of the house was accurate. Shops and restaurants were close to the home. House had plenty of room and was very comfortable. Hope to stay there again soon. Thanks!

Beautiful quiet home one block from beach

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to AMI and our first time using VRBO. I have to say that we were very satisfied. The house was very nicely furnished for a rental and had all the beach goodies included as well. The house was very clean and modern on a very quiet street. Ken was very nice to deal with and we are looking forward to our next visit. The owners obviously take pride in their home and have thought of every little detail to make for a very enjoyable stay. The beach umbrella and chairs have seen their better days, but everything else was top notch. Thank you for letting us enjoy your house!

One Block to Beach on a Private Spring Fed Lake

  • 5 of 5
This is the best home we have rented on the island in the 14 years we have been coming here.

It is very clean, comfortable and convenient to the gulf and shopping, on a quiet street. The house itself is quiet and you do not hear traffic noise. I would recommend this property to anyone planning a visit to the island.

It is obviious that the owner takes pride in maintaining the property.

We had a wonderful time.

Noise Nightmare

  • 2 of 5
We rented this home for the months of January and February. It is well equiped and comfortable, but the stay was anything but pleasant.

The photos are out of date, especially the one of the front of the home. The small home to the left had been torn down and a duplex was being built. We had to listen to construction noise for the entire length of our stay. The work took place 6 days a week. Some days we left just to escape the noise. We had to close windows and turn on the air conditioning which is drafty due to the placement of the vents in the ceiling We could not use the the deck on the back of the house and the view of the portable toilet and dumpster in the front was unsettling.

Also, the home needs some repairs. The faucet handle in the master bath was broken and the grid in the twin bedroom window was falling out. When I mentioned these things to the owner, he said he planned to attend to them the next time he came. We replaced the knob on the faucet to keep from getting injuries to our hands. The faucet worked backwards - cold was hot and hot was cold.

There were other problems also:
The toilet in the second bathroom ran
There was only one toilet bowl brush for 2 toilets
The only broom had a metal handle that had been broken off and taped on top
The beach umbrellas were broken
Half of the chairs were rusted and unusable

When we told the owner of our dissatisfaction, he merely said he was sorry, he knew about the construction in October - before we sent our final payment, but did not let us know. He claimed the master bath faucet was not reversed, but that a previous renter had replaced the knob and put it on backward. We put a new knob on that matched the old one exactly and was put on exactly the same.

We would not recommend this house to anyone and would suggest you check to see if there is construction near any place you plan to rent in Holmes Beach because there is a lot going on there now.

Another negative to renting here is that the deck now looks directly onto 2 swimming pools next door.

Owner's Response: These renters were there for 2 months. The construction was started in the Fall. We were there when the home next door was torn down. These guests rented a year before they arrived. I have no control over construction in the neighborhood. I am sorry for the construction. The home torn down was very old and in poor condition. It is being replaced with a much nicer home.

If you read any of our previous reviews you will see that our home is clean and in great condition. I can't believe that they would complain about the number of toilet brushes and the tape on the perfectly fine broom. These guests emailed me about the spigot and said that they would replace the handle which the previous guest must have cracked. It was put on upside down so that the arrow points in the wrong direction.

The beach chairs and umbrella is what we use and were fine in November when we left. Things at the beach get some rust and corrosion. If the umbrella is broken it may have been broken by these guests since they are the second guests to arrive since we were left. The grid in the front window has a broken piece on the bottom but stayed in the window without a problem when I left. It my have been broken by the previous guest but it is only a decorative piece.

These guests communicated with me when they were leaving and I am sure expected me to refund their payment although they didn't ask. When I didn't they must have decided to give us a bad review. If you read the previous review by guests who were there during the construction you will see that they didn't even mention the construction.

Here is the email that they sent me 3 weeks after their arrival asking where they could get their hair cut.

You can see that they fixed the single handle faucet and obviously did it upside down. They did not even mention the construction half way through their stay.

Ken,

Can you suggest anywhere for us to get our hair cut; either on Anna Maria or in Bradenton? If thre is a particular person you go to, please send that infromation also.

The faucet in the master bath is fixed; no need to reimburse - it did not cost that much.

Also, just to let you know, the gridwork in one of the windows in the twin bedroom is coming out. It was like that when we arrived and we do not open that window because of it.

Thanks,

You can judge their motives.

Holmes Blvd House

  • 5 of 5
Great house, was well equiped with everything you need. Was on very quite steady near beach as advertised. The owner Ken Green was easy to deal with and the whole transaction was very easy to complete. The home was super clean with very comfortable beds and plenty of room. We had 4 adults and there was tons of extra space. All the meals we ate at restaurants were very good, lobstahs had very good food and a 14 pound giant lobster in the tank was neat. We had a great time and will definitely come back again. Thank you
