One room has a queen bed and the kids' bunk room accommodates up to 4 with a twin-over-full bunk bed plus a single twin bed. The second master (king) suite is a quiet and very private poolside cabana. There is also a nice adjacent outdoor shade- filled seating area inside the caged pool.

The family room has a 46” HDTV along with entertainment system that includes: a Blu-ray DVD player, cable and Apple TV.

This home is all about maximizing outdoor living with a pool and lanai so sip your coffee in a comfy chair or enjoy your dinner poolside without being “bugged.”

The kitchen is completely outfitted to prepare everything from a simple breakfast to gourmet meals. A large gas grill is poolside. To provide extra safety for the littlest vacationers, there is a large grassy fenced backyard and the pool itself is surrounded by a safety fencing that can be easily added or removed according to your needs.

The focus of this beach house is maximum comfort, relaxation, entertainment, connectivity and important safety features for families with young children have not been overlooked. There is a Pack 'n Play at the house with pad and sheets.

Of course everyone comes to the beach for our beautiful Gulf beaches and you can be on the sand and in the surf in just moments!

beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I absolutely loved it! Very short walk to the beach, short drive to the store and the house is equipped with everything you would need. My kids loved the pool and all the games that were in their room. I would definitely recommend this house and would stay here again!

Fun at the beach

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Big Sky; our kids and grandkids loved it, too.

The house is spacious, well-equipped, and we liked all the special touches that made it ready to enjoy from the moment we walked in. The outdoor shower was a treat when returning from the beach!

The pool's safety netting was most appreciated because of the 1-year-old and the 3-year-old grands. We enjoyed a calm morning of kayaking. Thanks for making it available!

We do not know how you did it, but the weather was great. Thanks! Our family looks forward to doing this again next year.

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Having just returned from an 8 day stay at Big Sky House I wanted to say how much we enjoyed the house, in fact it exceeded our expectations! The house has everything needed to make a vacation enjoyable, from the well stocked kitchen to the great supply of beach towels and toys, it felt like home from the minute we walked through the door. We travelled with our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren, ages 5 and 3, there was space for everyone to feel comfortable and having 2 bathrooms accessible from the lanai was great for all. The beach is so close but I must admit that we used the pool more for swimming as it is wonderfully warm at 88 degrees and having a covered area outside allowed us to be outside even on rainy days.
AMI is a very special place and I could go on forever but probably my greatest appreciation would be to Lin, thank you for making the whole process so easy and straightforward, this was our first time renting and you made it a very pleasurable experience, hoping to return next year for at least a month.

Where do I start

  • 5 of 5
This home has it all. We have rented homes all over the country and Big Sky house has
great Karma. I counted as I walked, front door to the beautiful gulf 180/seconds. The home is immaculate, no I mean spotless. The pool area is outstanding and so very comfortable for a family get away and includes a hot and cold outdoor shower! The kitchen is wonderfully stocked, The bedrooms large and very comfortable. 2 car garage, One is full of beach gear and I mean full. The other is wide open for you to pull your car in. West side garage has a 2nd refridgerator which came in extremely helpful. Short 20 minute walk to all our favorite restaurants in Holmes beach center. 40 minute walk to Pine Ave and 2 Scoops Ice cream parlor and the bay pier which we did most evenings. This is the perfect location on the island.
Lin, the property manager knows how to treat her clients with friendly professionalism.
I would tell the owners don't lose her. She is so great to deal with. Good Lord willing we will be back next year. Our family wants to wish both Lin and the property owners very happy holidays and the very best of health and happiness in the coming new year

Happy Renters

  • 5 of 5
Three generations of our family, from different states, rented this house for a family vacation. The property was perfect for us. It was very clean, well-maintained, and ready for our arrival. The photos give a good representation of the property. It was quite spacious and all 10 of us were happy with the accommodations. The pool was great and the beach was a 2-3 minute walk from the house. The beach buggy and beach chairs, and toys, and umbrella, and cabana were a big PLUS (especially since we had a 4 month-old with us)! Our favorite nights out were to the Rod and Reel Pier for dinner, and one night to Two Scoops for ice cream. My 11 year-old grandson said, "Thank you Grandma for finding this house for us." Needless to say, I would highly recommend this house to others. Our group included grandparents, couples in their 30's and 40's, and children ages 4 months, 3, 9, 11, and 17 years. A good time was had by all!

Family Trip, early March.

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for our group - grandparents, parent and young grandchildren. It was close to the beach - easily walkable for the 5 and 3 year olds. The heated pool was a big attraction when the beach was too windy and cool. Having the security fence around the pool made the whole vacation more relaxing for all of us. The house was within easy access to the free trolley, north and southbound.
Everything was very clean and well-maintained, but it also felt like a home with toys for the children to play with.
Other than the beach, no other attractions were really within walking distance for a young family, but the trolley made everything accessible. We also liked the very quiet residential area, and very seldom heard any traffic.
Highlights for us were the Sandbar Restaurant and Eat Here (dinners), Relish Cafe (coffee), Two Scoops Ice Cream Cafe, and Peaches Restaurant and AMI Beach Cafe for breakfasts. Also picked up a lasagna from the Italian Kitchen on Pine for our last night - delicious!
