About Barbara and Terry Green

We are retired and LOVE the laid-back island life style. We walk, bike, swim and enjoy the beach every day and the sunsets every evening. Terry enjoys remodeling our 1968 house where we are only the second owner. We have a dog Niko, a quiet Shiba Inu. We love people and look forward to sharing our home.

Ich (Barbara) spreche Deutsch (ich komme urspruenglich aus Deutschland) et je parle Francais aussi.

Barbara and Terry Green purchased this studio in 2010

Why Barbara and Terry Green chose Holmes Beach

We visited this area for the first time during the 'cold' winter of 2010, when we stayed a month on Siesta Key, a month in Bradenton and two months in Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island. We loved the area's culture, arts, music and of course the beaches and outdoor activities. Anna Maria Island is quaint and laid back, pedestrian and bike friendly. 'Our' beach access is the most picturesque - it's like stepping into a Florida postcard: sugar white sand, emerald water and an uncrowded expanse of miles of beach. At the same time we are within short driving distances to three airports and the amenities of Sarasota, St. Petersburg and Tampa. Theaters, music, museums and the best restaurants and shopping, plus golf courses and sporting events - whatever your heart desires. You come back to the quiet life on Anna Maria, dig your heels into the warm sand, enjoy a drink and watch another glorious sunset!

What makes this studio unique

Our 'Sunny Seashell' is just that: sunny, fresh and made for couples or friends who like a cozy place to stay, where being out and about is more important than watching the latest news on TV. You are so close to the beach that you can jump up from the dinner table and watch the sun set. You can bike and stroll to the quaint shops on Pine Ave and fish on Anna Maria Pier. You can get a cup of coffee and sip it under the pines of Anna Maria beach. You can join the Turtle Watch and see the loggerhead turtle nests and you can watch a multitude of waterbirds along with dolphins and even a manatee. Collect seashells and sand dollars or go to one of the many art fairs on the island, or get fresh fruit and veggies at the local farmers market.

We had a perfect time at Barbaras and Terrys place (2 adults with a baby)

  • 5 of 5
Wir hatten einen wundervollen Aufenthalt bei Barbara und Terry! Barbara und Terry sind zwei fantastische Personen, die an jede Kleinigkeit denken und den Aufenthalt unvergesslich machen. Wir denken oft an die tolle Zeit zurück und werden wiederkommen.
In dem Bungalow ist alles vorhanden was man braucht - an jede Kleinigkeit wurde gedacht. Wir haben oft im Garten gegrillt und dort auch zu Abend gegessen. Der Strand ist nur paar Minuten entfernt und in die Stadt kann man entweder mit dem kostenlosen Bus fahren oder zu Fuß gehen (ca. 20 Minuten). Es ist ein romantischer Ort an den man viele wunderschöne Stunden verbringen kann und die Menschen sind super freundlich und zuvorkommend.
Wir hatten eine fantastische Zeit dort verbracht und kommen wieder!

Our 1st Snowbird Experience

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our month plus stay with Terry and Barbara immensely and would have stayed another 1-2 months if the studio had been available. Our hosts were gracious and responded immediately to our questions and provided insight to the local restaurants and activities. The unit was very clean.
Although the month of January was cool and hazy at times, we were able to spend many hours on the beach which was a very short walk from the "Seashell". Many sunsets also were enjoyed. Carrying the beach chairs and umbrella provided on the cart was another plus. Having washer and dryer capability proved very positive.
We explored the island for rentals for the next two months and found that this property was very economical compared to other rentals.
Would definitely recommend for couples of all ages.

Our staycation

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a getaway close to home and found it at The Sunny Seashell. Terry and Barbara were great hosts giving us the low down on the eats, the beach, etc. The weather was great and it's a quick walk to the beach. The studio was great - had everything we needed to make our stay a comfortable one. Looking forward to returning again. Thank you again for making our staycation an enjoyable one!!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the Sunny Seashell. Barbara and Terry were wonderful hosts. They were full of helpful information and generously loaned us their bikes. We enjoyed exploring the island by bike and walking the miles of beautiful beach. The unit was very clean, tastefully decorated, and cozy. We can't think of anything that could have been better and would love to visit again next year.
