Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Lazy Gecko is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy all the wonders of Anna Maria. From the private solar-heated salt water pool to the beach chairs and wine glasses, just bring your bathing suits and lotion and get ready to relax. Stroll down beautiful tree-lined White Ave, one of the most beautiful and popular beach access sites on the island - and with the beach just moments away, you'll enjoy a glorious week in paradise.

You’ll find a large flat screen t.v, dvd and free WiFi onsite. With two large bedrooms (Queen bed in one, a full and a twin bed in the other), two full baths and a full size convertible bed, Lazy Gecko comfortably sleeps 7. With a backyard grill and a fully equipped kitchen, feel free to eat at home or enjoy one of Anna Maria’s award winning restaurants.

Sunrise over the bay is a treat and be sure to take the 3 minute stroll to the beach to see our spectacular world-famous sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. Nature abounds and it’s tough to make a visit to Anna Maria without meeting a few egrets, pelicans and dolphins, and if you’re lucky, you’ll even catch sight of a gentle Manatee, the namesake of our local county.

The Lazy Gecko is a tastefully updated, clean and welcoming piece of paradise and we cordially invite you to make it your home away from home year after year.

(This is a two unit complex. The other unit on the property is occupied year round.)

I moved to Anna Maria Island in 2008 to celebrate the birth of my son and to be close to family. I fell in love with it and can't think of a more pristine and peaceful place to spend time. We no longer live on the island full time but visit it nearly every weekend (sometimes in our own home and sometimes staying with family.) We're happy to share a piece of our beautiful island paradise with you when we aren't using it.

Kevin purchased this house in 2010

For over 10 years, my career involved the Surf Industry which took me to many of the most desirable beach locales worldwide. Yet every time I would visit family on Anna Maria, it never ceased to take my breath away - so this is where I chose to land. It's one of the prettiest places I've ever seen and we hope you'll share our love for our little piece of paradise.

Anna Maria is a combination of old Florida, exotic natural beauty and Norman Rockwell community. The people are warm and welcoming and when we stroll over to the beach for sunset we're always joined by neighbors, old friends and new friends. Anna Maria is uniquely cozy and welcoming in a world that sometimes isn't.

Wonderful Place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our families first trip to Anna Maria Island. I want to Thank Kevin for allowing us to stay at such a nice place. We really enjoyed our stay. The house was nice and clean and we absolutely loved the private pool. We also was walking distance to the beach as well. This won't be our last trip to Anna Maria Island nor will it be our last stay at The Lazy Gecko.

Thanks Again :)

WINTER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We travel to the island every winter and travel with a pet. 2013/14 winter was rough and we were anxious to get somewhere warmer without snow! This rental was the cleanest rental we've ever encountered, what a great job!! The unit is just as stated, fully equipped. We enjoyed coffee each morning outside around the pool and loved it! Our favorite restaurants are Hurricane Hanks for fish tacos and grouper sandwiches, where you can take a pet and eat outside; just love The Sandbar ... and of course, got to enjoy Pancakes on the Beach down at Holmes beach - great way to start the day! There is a "pet friendly" beach that we visited with our Buddy ... and saw dolphins each day we were there. We would recommend this rental!

First trip to AMI

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Lazy Gecko the week of July 20th & loved it!
The owners were great at answering my many questions & easy to communicate with.
The pool is great, but it was too deep for kids to go in w/o a lifejacket. We spent a lot of time in there & it was great. Other than all the construction next door & behind, it was relaxing after a long day.
There were ample towels, pool & beach toys (we left a blow-up bball hoop for you to enjoy), beach chairs, & coolers. But take my advice & rent or bring a wagon. Its not a long walk (5-8min) to the beautiful beach, but a wagon was a life saver.
Make sure you go over to the beach for sunset. & also if you have kids, try the public beach area. They have playsets & swings there. Also try swimming near the pier on the bay side. We saw a sting ray & dolphins there.
The house is a great location, quiet area (other than construction), easy to find. Only negative was the couch was older & wore out. But we werent there to watch tv!
We cant wait to come again!
Recomended food: Lobstah's, Oma's pizza, Rod & Reel, & my fave was Mr.Bones beef brisket. 2Scoops was the best for ice cream. & the donut shop(Anna Marie Donuts) was great!

Owner's Response: The construction next door is complete and no longer an issue. Based on the feedback from the Jones family we now have a beach cart for our guests to use. We love your feedback and are always looking for ways to make the Lazy Gecko experience better!

Beach or Pool? Both were cool!!!

  • 5 of 5
The Lazy Gecko exceeded our expectations with every amenity of our own vacation home at the beach. We were pleasantly surprised to to find fluffy beach towels, coolers,chairs, and toys to take for our short walk to the beach. The laundry room,kitchen and pantry had just enough essentials to make a weeks stay comfortable. After a day at the beach,relaxing by the pool was easy with floats or lounging chairs.The master bed was comfy and plenty of extra linens were provided for the other bedroom and pull out sofa. The only drawback was the tiny shower in the 2nd bedroom.We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come again or recommend to friends!!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5
My (then) 2-year old son and I stayed at the Lazy Gecko in May 2011. It was our first time in Anna Maria and I couldn't have imagined a better experience. The LG is spotless, quiet and fully-equipped with anything we could have needed. The pool was beautiful, the location to the beach was short and convenient and the tiny geckos everywhere are adorable! Brigitte's son and mine are the same age so we hit the jackpot in terms of the occasional playdate and getting to borrow all the beach toys to play with. I highly recommend the property.
