About Frank Borrelli

Being an owner of a travel agency for over 40 years, I understand the importance of vacationing. I also understand the importance of trust and feeling comfortable. A few years ago I officially 'sold' my travel agency, but still enjoy this business so much that I continue to book dream vacations for anyone who desires.

Frank Borrelli purchased this condo in 1985

Why Frank Borrelli chose Holmes Beach

25 years of experience with the cleaning professionals, makes me some-what of an authority, I feel I have the cleanest on the Island! Should there be a need for any service, repairs, or maintenance our cleaning personnel will be your contact. Furthermore, the views, location, and comfort of the Condo is unbeatable.

What makes this condo unique

Wi Fi and also a land line with free phone service......most cell phone reception is poor on the island. The county is still in the process of installing a cell tower on the island

Guestbook comments from the owner

Condo was very clean and well equipped. We so enjoyed the location to watch the Gulf,the Sunset and the beach. We fell in love with AMI. The exterior was also well kept.

Honeymoon Made Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation spot to spend our honeymoon! We had everything we needed and felt very much at home. We awoke every morning to a thunderstorm that lasted about 8 minutes, but dissipated to beautiful days. A truly spectacular site from our own private balcony or from the bedroom window. Everything in the condo was fully stocked and super clean. Dishes, plates, beach towels, silverware, washer/dryer right in the condo, including local area restaurant pamphlets etc. It was also very comfortable with the a/c. We also had access to the beach equipment and spent most of the time laying in the summer sun or in the pool area. We were able to walk to the gift shop that's right next door and eat breakfast right on the beach! There are many restaurants very close by and are reasonably priced. We visited the "Sword Fish Grill" and ate a nice dinner on their deck. Thanks to Frank's recommendation! There was a band and we had a wonderful time! On our last day, we were able to talk with a few conservationist and assisted baby sea turtles from their nests while they made their way to the ocean! A once in a lifetime opportunity! We had the best time on our honeymoon and we would choose the exact same destination--Anna Maria Island. The area, people, beach, everything was just perfect! I loved every moment and we hope to go back again for our 1 year anniversary. We would highly recommend staying here for awhile. There's so much to do and see!! Thank you for everything Frank and Jean! You made our honeymoon very special and unique. Love you!! The Tese's.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice reviews. First time that I know of that our guests were to help with the turtles. Is that not the greatest? Years ago we knew the Turtle Lady, she and her volunteers were amazing.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just the perfect size for us. We spent our evenings on the lanai watching spectacular sunsets. You couldn't have asked for better weather-- we even were able to sleep with the windows open. This was so relaxing and serene. Coming from Wisconsin with one of the most brutal winters we can remember this was absolutely wonderful. Publix was so convenient, we cooked in a few times and relished the fresh seafood. Frank was so accommodating -- we called him and asked for an extended checkout and it was no problem. Would we return--absolutely!!! Thank you for sharing your Paradise with us.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Everything was fantastic. Frank accommodated us cheerfully even though it was a last minute trip. I spoke with him several times prior, giving me the feeling that I was renting from someone I knew. He mailed me much appreciated information about things to do while visiting. We purchased renter's insurance which was a waste. Frank's word is all the insurance you need.

The facilities are nicer in person than can be captured on film; no litter anywhere on the grounds, sparkling, inviting pool, spacious, covered parking. The property is so lovely and very well located. It is convenient to Publix and CVS. The trolley is fun even if you have access to a car, and it stops adjacent to the property. The current guests were quiet and seemingly responsible, making it feel like a family complex.

The condo is just lovely. It is modern, spacious, gulf-front and above all CLEAN. When we arrived, we walked straight to the balcony where we found a hand-written note by Nancy the housekeeper suggesting that we be careful on the tile due to the rain that day. I was immediately impressed. While I was tucking my kids in, I fluffed the comforter of one of the twin beds and found a dryer sheet clinging on. I always suspect that comforters are not laundered in most places, but that is not the case for Nancy. The furniture inside and out are comfortable and in good shape. I liked the glass shower doors in the bathrooms. In the kitchen the stainless appliances are gleaming and new and everything I needed (except S&P) I found, even coffee filters that someone had left. Laundry was easy to keep up with due to the high-capacaty washer and dryer. This condo is owned with love and maintained with care. I thought of Nancy warmly many times. Her extra effort is obvious and far exceeds what is "acceptable" elsewhere.

Frank allows access to his personal beach closet which is stocked with chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and pool floats. Everything in that closet was sand-free and generally in great shape. The umbrellas were finicky but we made them work. We didn't even have room for beach towels in the car so I was thankful for everything provided.

I hope to stay on this lovely island again and if I do it will be here. Don't hesitate. Doing business with Frank feels nostalgic, like when people did business with their word and a handshake. He knows how to talk to people, how to make them happy and how to run a business based on customer satisfaction. Thank you, Frank.

Owner's Response: Hi Shannon.....Thanks for the kind words...This is so important especially that our home is so distant. I must rely on my guests to let me know how things were upon arrival. Call me in future for any travel needs.. Thanks Frank Borrelli

Paradise Found -- Anna Maria Island Condo

  • 5 of 5

We truly can say that our time at the condo was a great time of rest and enjoyment. Evenings were spent on the balcony enjoying the beautiful sunsets while listening to the Gulf waves as they came rolling in. The beauty of the celestial display after sunset indeed made us aware of the natural beauty of God's creation. Mornings began with a walk along the beautiful Gulf shore - barefoot and absorbing the coolness and softness of the white sands. Later, we took advantage of the fresh water swimming pool which was so private and relaxing. A special treat was seeing the school of dolphins swimming North during the morning hours and then seeing their return in the late afternoon. The condo was more than adequate for us, exquisitely decorated but comfortable, and was conveniently located to everything we needed. The generosity and cooperativeness of the owner was beyond our expectations -- including all beach and pool equipment. What a wonderful place to call "home" for a week!!!! To sum it up, "this condo is more than a five-star rating!"

my daughter and i stayed there a number of times so far. Very nice place and a great pool.Close to the cafe to listen to the music. The owner has just about everything you need, maybe could have used a noodle for the pool, i bought one and left it for the next guest. Hope to be back again......
