Overview

Holmes Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, Convertible bed, 2 Baths and Dinette and DR

Need a full recharge during your beach vacation?

Try our two-bedroom condo on Anna Maria Island. Here, you’ll find the calm hush of island life without chain restaurants or towering hotels to block your view of the glittering, turquoise Gulf of Mexico. And thanks to three walls of windows, most of our condo’s rooms are treated to that view, which is better than photos can capture!

We took care to ensure our condo matches the understated, relaxed beach town vibe of Anna Maria Island. After a recent renovation, we’re ready to welcome you with cheerful, contemporary upgrades like new floors, countertops and furniture, and pops of Gulf-inspired color that make our place feel less “hotel” and more like “home.”

Spend the day lazing on the beach, which is just a one-minute walk from the condo across a quiet street (Holmes Beach access is located at 34th Street, and so are we!). You won’t have to rush to claim a slice of sand—the beach is often pleasantly uncrowded, even during peak months.

Then, back at the condo, plenty of evening amenities await, including a large heated pool with lounge chairs, TVs with DVD players in the unit for a family movie night, and a rooftop deck with a perfect vantage point for peeping brilliant sunsets. (The rooftop terrace and pool are shared with the building’s three other units, but are never crowded.)

A fully stocked kitchen makes whipping up a meal a breeze, and there’s plenty of space to serve it at our six-person dining table. Plus, there’s a bar with stools and a breakfast nook—both great spots to enjoy a stack of morning pancakes.

Want a place to sip a mug of coffee (or glass of wine before bed) in your PJs? The breezy lanai, attached to the master bedroom, is the perfect spot. There’s a private bath for the master, as well. A second bedroom sleeps up to three guests, with one twin bed and one queen.

The living area sofa pulls out into a couch to accommodate another guest. A total of six people can sleep here comfortably.

Please note: we have been managing this rental since October 2013. Any reviews previous to that date don’t reflect the current state of our condo, which is kept to our high standards.

We hope to see you soon—get in touch today to book your dates.

And good news! If your desired period is booked we also have another unit next door. It has a very similar feel and an identical layout. Look at our sister listing VRBO #217357/HomeAway #211902 for more inspiration!

About Tomas and Marie

Marie was an exchange student in Ohio over 30 years ago. She's visited USA several times per year ever since and considers it to be her second home land.

Tomas had never been to the US before visiting it with me, but he just loves the area!

Tomas and Marie purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tomas and Marie chose Holmes Beach

It is spacious and bright with a unique location and wonderful views. So close to both the beach and all the amenities of Anna Maria Island, while still in a very quiet neighborhood.

What makes this condo unique

There isn't a better located unit on AMI. You can walk to shopping as well as the beach. Its great to come off the beach and go to the pool or just enjoy what Anna Maria has to offer.

We also own the next-door unit, so you can rent both if you are two families traveling together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation this year at your condo. We've been vacationing on AMI for over 30 years but this year we especially loved our stay for many reasons.

The location of the condo is ieal with just a very short walk down a sandy beach road and there it is..the most beautiful beach ever, so close we could go bak and forth to pick up drinks for the beach or lunch in just minutes.

The condo itself is very clean, spacious and comfortable, a largebright kitchen well equiped with everything one needs to feel at home. The TV's have "millions" of channels which we enjoyed in the living room and bedroom.

Both bedrooms are roomy..the very large master bedroom has a "beachy" theme with an exceptionally comfortable king size bed.

We loved spending time in the sunroom which had a great view of the Gulf.

The pool area is pretty and well maintained with both shade area and sunning area..never busy when we were there. Many days w were the only one's at the pool..nice and private. The rooftop deck is especially great to watch sunsets..we took some beautiful photos.

Thank you for making sure our vacation was memorable.

Paradise...

  • 5 of 5

...on earth! This exclusive place includes just about everything one can ask for; beautiful surroundings, nearby beach that lasts FORVEVER, superb apartment with everything one needs (and a bit more...), a private pool area with shower and toilet, shaded parking area, etc.

Anna Maria Island is THE place to go. In order for you to enjoy your stay, I can strongly recommend this rental option. What a place! Clean and neat, orderly and light - just perfect!

Thank you for sharing this place with us! I could stay there for the rest of my life.

Great spot on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice condo/apartment type setting. Steps to the beach and short easy walking to restaurants, grocery and other stores. The little strip mall two blocks away has it all. Bike,scooter,kayak rental, restaurants for breakfast , lunch, and dinner. Found a German restaurant here that was excellent, but make reservations as very crowded. The view from the unit was very nice and best part is you are off the main road so deal with very little traffic. The unit is very clean with all the amenities you would want. Its very airy and spacious and certainly has room for more than the 2 of us that were there. Only caution, book early as in August this past year only last week of January, 15 was available. The owners are super about responding to e mails so no time is wasted if there are questions.

Great condo with a few steps to the wonderful beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is the apartment/condo that fulfills all our wishes. We have had two weeks of wonderful holiday. Quiet and comfortable, beautiful surroundings where you always feel close to the beautiful beach and the Gulf. To swim near the dolphins, we never could have dreamed of! Many days we have chosen to stay at the pool which was very inviting, the roof terrace with its wonderful views, or just sit on the balcony and read. Excursions are easy to do from here if you like, there is much to see and experience suitable for all tastes. We have felt at home in the condo which is so tastefully decorated, spacious and well cleaned. In particular, we have appreciated free wifi, comfortable beds and a kitchen with everything you need. If you want to dine out, there are nice local restaurants nearby and it is close to the grocery store. The very nice owners have been very helpful when we had questions or needed advice and ideas during our vacation. We can highly recommend this wonderful condo and Anna Maria Island, all you need for a wonderful holiday! Hopefully we soon can come back.

Great condo on a wonderful island

  • 5 of 5

We have spent two weeks in this really nice and well equipped apartment/condo, it really felt like home.

It had everything including dishwasher, washer, dryer and an extra plus for the free wi-fi.

The pool had an excellent size and was clean and nice our children really enjoyed it.

The location of the apartment/condo was perfect. Near to a beautiful beach, just take the flip-flops and walk to this fantastic beach with “sugar sand”, also near to grocery store.

The contact with the owners has been great during the whole process, both before, during and after our stay.

Anna Maria Island is a wonderful island, relaxed and friendly. A perfect place for vacation.

We can strongly recommend this island and apartment/condo and we hope that we can come back in a near feature.

All our expectations were fulfilled.
