Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

The Crows Nest is nestled in a lush tropical landscape on quiet Anna Maria Island. Our guests return year after year to enjoy our little slice of paradsie! Kids love this cottage, it feels like a grown up tree house!

If you are looking for an island getaway - we have the perfect place. The Crows Nest has a wonderful deck, have your coffee and muffin or a fresh florida orange outside in the morning light!

You can begin your day walking on the beach with the sunshine on your shoulders and sugar sand between your toes or poolside surrounded by the tropical garden.

Need an afternoon out of the sun? Flip the dinner table over and play some cards or a game of bumper pool!

Grill out, eat out or bring take out back to enjoy on the deck or poolside- AND Don't forget to catch the sunset! We have amazing sunsets on our island and we can not think of a better way to celebrate each day and welcome the evening like watching the sun sink into the tranquil Gulf of Mexico!

We are looking forward to meeting you!

Rats in home

  • 1 of 5

Arrived on Saturday, rat droppings found on Monday, Found Rat in Rat trap on Wednesday, Rats continued leaving droppings on top of kitchen cabinets, bathroom floor and bathroom counter top. Please do not stay here. Actually the pest company arrived on Monday prior to even knowing there was rats in the house. Pest Control stated that they had to come in th prevent "critters" from coming in. That night our bread was eaten thru the wrapper. What a mess. Please do not stay here. Bette Business Bureau is being contacted.

Tropical peace and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my second stay in the Crow's Nest. I've been coming to the island for seven years and so glad I found Spinnakers. You would never know the tropical paradise that awaits you - from the street. The price is right and the service is top notch. I hope to see you again next year!

Simply Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 arrived at the Crow's Nest on a Saturday evening...and from the moment we got there until the time we left the following Saturday morning, we were not once disappointed! It is even more beautiful and private than the pictures show..the plants and trees all throughout the place were just beautiful and provided a lot of privacy and created the tropical island feel..there were cute little lizards that my kids enjoyed finding and watching..the pool was perfect for us and we tried to use it every night after being at the beach most of the day...Amy was super helpful any time I had any questions, and very quick to respond..even though the other 2 rentals were occupied, we really felt like we were alone in our own little piece of paradise. The place was extremely clean and the kids loved the spiral staircase with the loft...it felt like a little hide away for them. The laundry room was super convenient, right under the stairs with an extra toilet/shower just in case. It was so nice not having to travel with extras since this place provides beach towels, plenty of chairs for adults and kids, boogie boards, a cooler, umbrellas, and a wagon to tote it all in. It's about 200 yards from the beach, and within walking distance to the trolley stop. Spinakers is on Holmes Beach, which in my opinion after a week of exploring Anna Maria Island, is the quietest and cleanest beach on the whole island....there are cute little shops that are locally owned, people riding their bikes or golf carts around, people running along the sidewalks....to my family this was paradise...no obnoxious drunk college kids yelling or running around...just retired people and young families....the beach was not crowded...which was nice....I can't say enough good things about this place and our experience...Oh yeah and in our cottage was a little photo book with information about the local restaurants and things to do, which was a great help for us since we had never been there....we plan to return to this same location next year and will probably make this our yearly vacation spot from here on out....if we could ever make it happen, we would live on Holmes Beach; we did not want to leave!

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Anna Maria but definitely not our last! The island is beautiful, quaint, beaches are gorgeous, fishing is great at both piers and there are so many wonderful restaurants and shops to enjoy.

The Crow's Nest was so cool and the perfect space for our family of 4 - our kids LOVED the loft area. Very clean, well equipped, pool and hot tub were fabulous and we loved the lush tropical plants and landscaping. You are so close to the beach - which even on spring break was not crazy busy.

We are bummed the Crow's Nest is booked for our break next year. We would highly recommend Spinnaker's!
