LOVE YOUR LIFE IN OUR SPACIOUS CONDO WITH SEA VIEW AND HEATED POOL!

Holmes Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

6 reasons why you will love our condo***

*VIEW!

So close to the beach, with a wonderful view from the living room and master bedroom. Panoramic views of the Mexican Gulf and Sarasota Bay from our roof-top terrace.

*LOCATION!

Close to the beach, grocery store, restaurants and everyday needs. 'We really appreciate not having to use a car to buy milk. Also, with several restaurants within half a mile, it's so nice not to have to take turns driving'.

*QUIET!

This condo is on the calm stretch of Gulf Drive, with little traffic. No restaurants are so close that they will disturb you. Our condo is one of only four units in the building.

*BRIGHT and AIRY!

Plenty of windows on three sides make it bright and welcoming.

*SPACIOUS!

Ample living and sleeping space make you feel like you can stretch out and relax.

*FRESH NEW LOOK!

We have replaced floor surfaces in all rooms as well as updated furniture to make it fresh and inviting. Well equipped for a pleasant stay.

(but don't just take our word for it, read the reviews... :-)

Guestbook comments from the owner
We left the cold and snow in Minnesota and headed to Anna Maria Island for 4 fantastic weeks. Upon entering the Tropical Sunset condo, we were very excited to see how large and clean it was. The kitchen was well equiped, the bedrooms were spacious, with plenty of storage, and the living/dining areas were very comfortable. Add the incredible view from the roof top deck, and we couldn't ask for more! Our grandson liked having additional TV's and the pool. I much prefer the beach which is right across the street.



We ate at two restaurants for the first time this trip and highly recommend both of them; The Sign of the Mermaid and Eat Here. The food and service were outstanding at both restaurants. Another first this trip was a one hour Segway rental. What fun it was to zoom around the Island for an hour.



As always, we spent a day at Egmont Key, a Florida State Park accessable only by boat. It is a beautiful place with old fort ruins, great shelling, and huge turtles roaming the island. It is a beautiful, peaceful paradise that is well worth the effort it takes to get there.



This well maintained unit is everything it advertised - and more!

Marie was an exchange student in Ohio over 30 years ago. She's visited USA several times per year ever since and consider 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 Dahlgren purchased this condo in 2008

We chose Anna Maria Island because it is such a relaxed, welcoming feeling here.

When you live a busy life, this is really the place to unwind.

Our condo building only has 4 units, so there's a very private feel to it.

It is one of the larger 2 bedroom condos on the island, and has windows on three sides, which makes it bright and cheerful.

We have decorated it in a contemporary, yet warm style.

Our place is one of the best equipped places that you'll find. We have quality kitchen utensils and most everything that you might need during your stay is supplied.

So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolute wonderful vacation!
Our 5, almost 6 year old, LOVED that she had a TV in "her" room.

We were concerned about the ease and distance between the beach and the condo but we learned that it was actually closer and easier access than some condos we've stayed at which were directly on the beach!

We also appreciated that the shower didn't have those sometime common water savers where the water lightly sprinkles on you :-) The decor was beautiful and the sofas very comfy!

We loved our stay and definitely plan to be back!

Amazing condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a two-week stay at this condo and it was absolute paradise!
The condo is immaculately clean and very well equipped and the owners are a pleasure to deal with. The location is perfect - just steps away from a wonderful white beach and within walking distance to the grocery store, shops and restaurants.
I would definitely recommend this rental to anybody looking to spend some time in paradise; we are definitely looking forward to returning.

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
The condo was a great place to stay for our family with 2 young children. Everything was as listed, clean, and well maintained. Others at the complex were friendly and quiet. It is a very short walk to the beach, which was not crowded during our visit. We spent most of our time at the beach, but also took a day to visit Busch Gardens. The Waterfront restaurant was amazing and it was nice to be so close to stores for anything we may have forgotten. Marie provided excellent customer service and was quick to respond to all questions prior to our arrival. I would definitely recommend this condo for those looking in the area and hope to come back and visit again.

Owner's Response: As you know it's really less than a minute flip-flop walk to the beach. Still it's hard to convey how near the beach we are, thank you for pointing that out Cindy!

Great Family Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay at Tropical Sunset #2. The location was just right for us and we were able to walk/bike to almost everything. Tomas and Marie's communication throughout the entire process was excellent and we appreciated the very quick return of our damage deposit.
There is plenty of room. The kitchen is well stocked. The pool is very nice. We were grateful for the washer and dryer. The condo was clean and ready for move in when we arrived.
We did call maintenance on the ice maker and they appeared within an hour and fixed it! Great service.
Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

Having stayed in many villas and condos in the states many of which are bare soulless places due to their rental nature. This one differs Marie and Tomas have put their own stamp on this property Swedish style and a real home from home Ikea style. Very well furnished and equipped.
The location is superb, shops nearby and only 200 yards to the beautiful Holmes Beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you Helen and Charlie!
We both stay a lot in hotels and don't want a generic, barren environment when we are on vacation.
As for our style, well you know the old saying:
You can take the Swede out of Sweden - but you can't take Sweden out of the Swede! :-)

Marie and Tomas

p.s. When you return next year you are welcome try our new, nextdoor unit if you'd like. It's being made up to the same style and standard!

Anna Maria is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation. This narrow island with its sugary white sand, does not have any high rises, in fact building codes prevent the construction of houses with more than 2 building storeys above a carport.

7 miles of white sand stretch on the west side of the island. That's the heart and soul of the island.

There are several restaurants and shops within walking distance. The island's biggest grocery store is also easily reached by foot. If you don't want to drive or walk, there is a free trolley driving up and down the island.

Sarasota is considered to be the 'cultural capital' of Florida with art galleries, theaters and an Opera House, and of course you have beach/sea activities, theme parks and shopping in the area.

Welcome to a slice of paradise!
