About Anna Maria Island:

What was once a best-kept secret among Florida day-trippers, Anna Maria Island, has always been known for its sugar-white coastline, emerald Gulf waters and quaint business districts. Today, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'…Anna Maria Island, Florida.

A seven mile long and one mile wide stretch of white sand beach, with an average annual temperature of over 80 degrees, it truly is a paradise!

About Susan

I am a full time resident of the Savannah GA area, and when I vacationed on Anna Maria it was time to own a little piece of paradise. I plan to retire here!

Susan purchased this house in 2010

Why Susan chose Holmes Beach

After falling in love with Anna Maria Island, just couldn't wait to buy our own piece of paradise. This property is perfect for friends and family. I enjoy sharing my beach home with family and friends, both old and new. I look forward to having you as my guests.

What makes this house unique

In less than 5 minutes you can step out our door and plant your feet in the sugar white sand of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Shops are close by and the neighborhood is kid friendly with a lot of warm and friendly neighbors.

My family's stay at Beach Charm and our Anna Maria experience exceeded expectations! Susan, the owner was full of practical and insightful tips prior to the trip and easily accessible for questions during our week in FL. The house had all the Old Florida bungalow charm, but was incredibly clean and comfortable...what a great combo and hard to come by! Loved being close to beach access that only offered access by foot with no public parking nearby which lent itself to a quiet, tranquil beach experience. However, the public beach was only down the road if you wanted to be 'part of the action'. By the end of the week we had found several favorite restaurants within walking distance that we frequented more than once. Duffy's Bar: Cash only wine/beer divey bar with awesome burgers and potato salad (no fries). Lobstahs: Good seafood and a great lobster roll and skinny fries. The Feast: Best mussels of my life and KILLER pizza. Also, take a trip to the north end of the island to Rod & Reel at the end of the pier for melt in your mouth fried oysters. While the trolley stop was steps from the house we found it to be a bit frustrating to wait for, but in fairness, this was during the height of Spring Break. We had days we used the car for exploring and days we explored completely on foot. You can tailor this island for your own personal preferences. Loved having a house and a pool to return to after a day of exploring. The outside shower was great for a quick clean up after the beach and helped keep the sand from overtaking the house! The family room was comfortable for a family of four including 2 teenage boys! If you are considering this property for your next vacation...go for it!!

Girls Week away!

  • 5 of 5
My daughter, sisters and I all spent a wonderful week on Anna Maria Island at the "Beach Charm". Our time at this home couldn't have been better. The listing description was accurate in describing the location of the home. It was a short walk, one block away from one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. The appearance of the home and amenities are accurate to the pictures and description in the listing. The home was very CLEAN and cozy. We all agreed the beds were all very comfortable. The landscape was tastefully done. The pool was just the right size, very clean and the water was warm! I am looking forward to returning back to AMI and defiantly will rent this home again. That being said I would recommend this property to a friend. As a matter of fact I have already recommend it to a couple of my friends! Thanks Susan for sharing your little piece of heaven. Jean

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we pulled up in front of this adorable cottage we knew we'd love it! We took our daughters and 4 of our grandchildren for a week on AMI - where we had only gone for daytrips before while staying in Bradenton. I don't know if we can stay anywhere else now! The beach house had everything we needed, was very clean and comfortable for everyone - and the pool was a wonderful bonus! The kids loved walking to the beach and riding the trolly to the Pier and to shop & get ice cream- it is such a great location. Susan made everything easy and was very helpful in getting this vacation put together! Check out the 3 White Egret shops - so neat! We will return!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I first enquired about "Beach Charm" for our first trip to Anna Maria Island to the minute we left, nothing but excellent communication and responsiveness from owners. House had all we needed for our stay, very comfortable and well appointed. Nice to have a private pool which we used a lot due to the strong winds on the beach (Hurricane Sandy was working it's way up the east coast). Description and photos do an excellent job of representing the property and really do show the care the owners put into maintaining both interior and exterior.

Location is excellent for exploring north or south on the island, either by car, bike or free trolley. Restaurtants etc also within walking distance.

Will definitely be back to this area of Florida as we loved the island vibe and lack of large resorts, fast food joints and towering Hotel complexes. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get away from it all for a few days.

Beautiful Place!!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED this place!!! Beautifully decorated in a Beach Theme, very clean inside and out. We enjoyed having a pool all to ourselves (minus the baby black snake we found swimming around upon our arrival) ; ). The beach and restaurants were all in walking distance. Our little minpin (Bailey) even made a new friend, and he had a great time chasing the lizards.
It was a great Birthday & Vacation get away. We will definetly rent this place again on our next trip to AMI.
