Why The Owner chose Holmes Beach

We chose to buy this 2 unit duplex to provide people the opportunity to experience the life of a true islander. You can get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life and enjoy the peace and tranquility the island has to offer. No walking experience is greater than enjoying the sites along the Gulf of Mexico.

Stress Free!!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the place for my Parents and Grandparents to stay because we were down for my Brothers wedding. I actually stayed in another house with the rest of the wedding party. I did actually see the place and it was just as described! When my Parents arrived they called me and said I had booked the perfect place! They were very pleased and said they would definitely like to stay there again! The Owner was so nice to work with! I definitely recommend this place for an affordable convienant place to stay on the island!

Awesome Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2nd Spring Vacation in this vacation rental and can't wait to come back next year. We love the location being so close to the beach. Everything is very well maintained, clean, and comfortable. The owners are very easy to contact and went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay.

Great times

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this cottage. Everything we needed was right there. Trolley stop close by, store and pharmacy close by, beach just a short walk. Everything was wonderful and in working order. We are ready to reserve our week for next year. I tis so nice to go someplace that is exactly as presented, and has all of the comforts of home.

Good location, needs updating

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Quiet neighborhood, short walk to nice beach, comfortable bed (in one room), access to washer/dryer, good a/c, outdoor patio, nice beach chairs, helpful and responsive owner.

Cons: Noisy fridge meant sleeping with bedroom door closed, vertical blinds in bedroom didn't keep out light from next door, no window covering in kitchen for privacy walking through house at night, cheap toilet paper, watered-down dish soap, no exhaust fan in one bathroom, only a few tiny bars of soap, no tourist info on what to do in the area (suggest a binder with restaurant menus, tour brochures, etc.)

Owner's Response: We've been debating for a few days exactly how to respond to this review as it's our first rating at this level. We appreciate the tip on the binder/brochure for restaurants, tours, etc. We've never had a complaint on the blinds before and feel our guests would prefer the blinds in the bedrooms as opposed to drapes which would make the bedrooms pitch black. We did speak to our guests that stayed immediately before and after this guest regarding the refrigerator and both guests said they had no issues and didn't notice the noise. Our maintenance person checked it out also and couldn't detect any noise either. Had we been contacted about it he would have checked on it while they were staying. We feel bad this guest didn't not have the experience and accommodations they expected, but do disagree with some of their complaints. Please see our other reviews for this unit as well as our unit next door, vrbo #317690. We feel the other reviews speak volumes about what we have to offer and would be happy to also give you referrals should you request one.

We found the property was everything that we required and was clean and well maintained. Easy access and we would recommend it to anybody. We would definitely use it again in the future. Also the owner was in constant contact to make sure everything was ok or if we had any problems. We had a great time.

Great Experience on Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleasantly surprised by this great property. After traveling to visit kids and grandkids for over 10 years and staying in hotels, we decided to try a house on the island. It was a great experience from the start. The owner was courteous, easy to contact and extremely helpful. The property was immaculate, clean, well set-up, and in a great location. On a short dead end street with virtually no traffic and just a short walk to Holmes Beach. The owner was gracious to allow us to change our planned stay to add an additional night. Again, a great experience at a great property, and a great value. You WILL NOT be disappointed!
