About Suzanne and Tony Ratchford

After two visits to Anna Maria Island, Tony and I fell in love with the lifestyle the area affords. The next thing we knew, we were looking at available properties. Once again we found ourselves visiting the island only this time to look at a property. We loved it, we wanted it, and we bought it and now we want to share all the island has to offer with YOU.

Suzanne and Tony Ratchford purchased this condo in 2010

Why Suzanne and Tony Ratchford chose Holmes Beach

The island is stunning. It's unique way of living and welcoming people await your arrival. It is a true diamond in the ruff.

What makes this condo unique

The trolley system is second to none. There are miles of walking/cycling trails in the nearby bird sanctuary. You can choose to be as active as you please or just hang out at the pool and relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was wonderfully decorated and we made ourselves at home right away. It was the perfect size for our family: 2 adults and 2 teenage boys. Since the complex is older, I was not sure what to expect, but the interior was even better than the pictures on the website! Because the complex is small, we had the pool to ourselves most of the days. The walk to the beach is very easy (maybe a half a block), but it's best to take the crosswalk just a little north of the condo, due to the traffic does get "very" busy. I would say that the only drawbacks of this location would be: the pool is very close to Gulf Drive and the traffic is continuous, so it can get a little noisy when you are at the pool (especially on the weekends.) Our family really enjoyed our stay and the wonderful hospitality of both Tony and Suzanne. Thank you for sharing your special home with us and for making it such a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy! We hope to return again!!

The condo is tastefully decorated with a beach theme. The kitchen was totally stocked and no need to bring your own beach towels! The beds were very comfortable, but our favorite spot was on the lanai. We had many nice meals out there when we opted not to go out. When we did dine out, the choices were plenty. Our favorite was the Sandbar! The pool was large, and kept very clean, and there is a nice gas grill right by the pool. You have a 2 minute walk across the street to the beach, and it is breath taking. We will definitely return. Suzanne and Tony were very easy to work with, and the renting process was very easy. Thank you Suzanne and Tony for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We can't wait to visit again. Paula Maher Burke

A comfortable easy home

  • 4 of 5
Once we were able to get the television figured out life was beautiful! The place was as promised.... clean, comfortable and within walking distance of many things one needs on vacation. My husband spoke with the owner twice and he could not have been kinder or done what he promised any more quickly. The weather could have been better but we did a lot of jigsaw puzzles and left them for anyone else who runs into rain and cold. The sunsets on those days when Mother Nature allowed them were spectacular and the heron who appears to live near the pool was much photographed because he did such adorable things! The only thing the unit needs is a better reading light in the guest bedroom. All three of us visiting are HUGE readers in addition to being at that point in our lives where everything we own is not functioning like it once did including our eyes. We were very impressed by some of the kitchen accoutrements; we suspect that a good cook owns the place and we loved the sharp knives! That was a real bonus because my husband always carries a good knife from home and discovered one there that was its equal. Strange things strike people and make them like or not like a place, but quite frankly, I think anyone would love to stay in this unit. I know that we would go back in a heart beat! There is so much to do in the area that even the cool and wet weather was not a "spoiler."

Very well equipped, comfortable and well furnished accommodation.

  • 5 of 5
Having spent many holidays in Anna Maria this is the first time that we have rented a condo (usually renting a house with a private pool). Tony and Suzanne's place really has everything that you need to spend a comfortable relaxing time in this very special part of the world.

We like to shop for freshly caught fish and seafood and cook in and the kitchen has everything that we needed.

The condo's proximity to the trolley bus is great and there are many restaurants within easy walking distance. It is so close to the beach where you can play volleyball or stroll further up for a quieter day there. The pool is great for either cooling down in or getting some exercise in and the people we met there were very friendly and we swapped restaurant tips etc. with each other.

We have never been much impressed by lanai before but this one provided a great 'outside' dining area and we used it most days.

If you are considering trying Anna Maria - just do it - we travel 3,000 miles to get there and it's worth 22 hour journeys each way to stay in such a beautiful laid back place.

The owners are really easy to deal with and provide lots of thoughtful extras, no going via snooty rental agents!

We will definitely be returning :)

Great Stay at Holmes Beach

  • 5 of 5
This condo had everything that we needed for a comfortable stay. Updated furnishings, cleanliness and proximity to the beautiful beach made our stay perfect. The pool area was nice and we had it to ourselves most of the time. For the price you can't beat this unit. Owners were very easy to work with.

A wonderful condo in an amazing place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed from the 5th to 12th of June in this fabulous, warm and fully equipped apartment. It was less than a 2 minute walk to a stunning beach, and close to any store you might need to buy food or supplies. The island is beautiful, with a free trolley service to take you to the tip and back. Filled with unique shops like Relish and delicious food such as at the Olive Oil Outpost, I cannot wait to return to this beautiful place. Thank you to the owners for letting us stay in their lovely apartment.

Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island is a little piece of heaven. Here on Island time, you can leave you fast pace behind. Relax on the FREE trolley and visit several of our shops and restaurants or meander down the beach for miles, while collect shells and watch the beautiful Floridian ocean birds as they fish along side you. There is so much to see and do here, the list is too long. Once you come, you'll want to return, we guarantee.
