Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Relax in a luxary home & take a short walk to the Gulf...

Framed by tall twisted Seagrape trees, and Saw Palmettos, you will find our 3800 sq ft.' tropical green' painted beach house, stretching up to three levels. Broken pieces of white sea shells, surround the tropical landscaping and coral pavers that make up the driveway. We built our home in 1996, and have enjoyed it as a meeting place for family reunions, friends, and Holidays. This is a house that has more windows than walls, and when you see the view, you'll understand why. Recently we updated it with new replacement windows and doors, hardy-board siding , new cabinets and granite counter tops in kitchen and bathrooms.

There are 2 houses between us and the pristine, white sandy beach; a quick short walk.

There are roll-a-way shutters, central intercom & stereo system,security system, and an elevator in the home that stops at three levels. The LR has a beautiful keystone fire place, with high cypress wood ceilings. House is decorated with a 'beach motif' with comfortable furniture.

The house is very open, tiled floors throughout, and has ceiling fans in every room. Two of the guest rooms have a queen size bed, and there is a large 'dorm' room on the back of the house with twin beds that sleep 6 people. The room has an adjoining large bathroom with shower (2 shower heads) and Koehler tub. Cable and

TVs in every room, PlayStation in guest room, DVD player. High-speed Internet access. Printer & Fax.

The covered wrap-around, screened deck area extends out behind the dining and LR areas, with a white porch swing, and comfortable patio furniture.

Large 2-car garage, and separate laundry room with W/D on ground level. Ping-Pong Table under lanai area, with 2 outdoor showers; one enclosed.

The master suite itself, is over 800 sq feet, surrounded by several windows overlooking the tree-tops with views of the Gulf. It makes up the top floor with a King size bed, wet-bar, keystone fireplace, home office area, sitting area with sofa, and covered deck . Adjoining is the master-bath with corner jacuzzi, separate toilet closet with bidet, and large shower.

You may receive a refund of up to 100% of your total rental payment if you provide written notice of cancellation at least 60 days prior to your arrival date, and paid with electronic check. However, if credit card used for deposit, and cancellation necessary, tenant responsible for credit-card fee (2.5% fee) not owner. Remaining deposit will be credited to tenant credit-card.

We built our vacation home when our sons were young, and have had some memorable times and wonderful summer vacations, shared with extended family and friends.

Our sons love to hunt,fish, and do just about any outdoor activity.

We also have a VAIL TIMESHARE for week-Jan. 12-19 2013 only. Usually rents for $3000.00 (Vail Run Resort) Will negotiate rent down if interest--contact me for information. Had last minute cancellation.

Debra Gutierrez purchased this house in 1996

Why Debra Gutierrez chose Holmes Beach

Anna Maria Island is very special too us--many family members live in the area. Florida's west coast sugar sand beaches are very often ranked as the top beaches in the world by most travel magazines. Family oriented and easy to get to, Anna Maria beaches are affordable destinations for making perfect vacations and 'perfect' memories--whether you want to hunt for sea-shells, fish, or just unwind..can't think of a better location...

What makes this house unique

There are numerous activities and fun things to do--to list a few: fishing, snorkeling, diving, surfing, para-sailing, bike riding and shelling. There are canoe, jet-ski, moped, and even 'Zegway' rentals.

Nature can be enjoyed at its best walking the shell-lined shores, watching tropical birds and other island wildlife .There are parks in the area, including Myakka River State Park, and DeSota National Park. There are fishing charters, kayak outfitters, and even fruit farms nearby.

There are numerous local attractions, should you tire of the sun, and need a 'rainy day' to catch up. There's Mote Marine Aquarium, Bishop Planetarium/Museum, Ringling Museum of Art, the Island Playhouse Theater, The Dali Museum, and Marie Selby Gardens, with it's beautiful orchid displays, and tropical plants..

You will find major attractions in neighboring cities including Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, and Disney World. The M LB team, the Tampa Rays play at Tropicana field in St Petersburg.

There are more than 50 golf courses nearby. If you'd like to improve your game, the internationally famous David Leadbetter Golf Academy, Nick Boliterie Tennis Academy and IMG Academy are all located in Bradenton .

The island is very 'laid-back' and offers so many wonderful accommodations. Come for the sunset, but stay for the sunrise,...Anna Maria Island is a special place, that will reach out to your heart...you won't want to leave...

Other Information

Anna Maria Island's charm lies in its congenial air of unhurried tropical living and its easy-going inhabitants. Don't be surprised if you see movie stars trying to hide from it all, like the rest of us.

* Did you know that there were several movies filmed here? 'Palmetto' starring Woody Harrelson, 'Out of Time' starring Denzel Washington, and 'Perfect Storm' starring George Clooney.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Heavenly" is the best word to describe our stay in your beautiful home. This was the perfect way to begin my husband's retirement. The view from the master suite was spectacular where we enjoyed so many awesome sunsets.

We take with us so many warm and wonderful memories as we leave. Please let us know when we can plan to return.

Holmes Beach Beauty

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There were 8 of us and plenty of room. The amenities were great. Ping pong table, porch swing, porch. We also enjoyed the large dining table. Access to the beach was great and there were chairs, beach toys, bicycles, something for everyone. I would recommend this lovely home.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house only 200 steps to the water. We were 9 with three grandkids under 3 and had room to spare. One great feature was the screened in wrap-around porch. Others include a propane grill, a beach wagon with many beach chairs, boogie boards & toys, 4 bikes, 2 outside showers and even a ping pong table. Beautifully decorated yet felt comfortable like being home. Looking forward to next year.

Comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 3 small children rented the house for 10 days over the Thanksgiving holiday.

It was very comfortable with a wonderful wrap around porch, steps to the beautiful beach and even a very large wagon for transporting everything to the beach. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this house with extended family and had a wonderful time. The location could not be beat for the price we paid. We rent a large home on Anna Maria once or twice each year for our extended family and we will definitely be back to this home. Everything is just as pictured on the site and the home is very clean and well maintained in comparison to others we have rented in the past. I love dealing directly with the owner and she was extremely helpful in answering my questions promptly and efficiently. We expecially loved using the large beach canopy at the beach each day. It was also nice that the home had bicycles, boogie boards and plenty of beach towels, chairs, and anything else we needed for our beach days. We highly recommend this home to anyone wishing to be close to the beach.

Anna Maria Island is a beautiful quiet island, with 7 miles of white sandy beaches, and the most beautiful sunsets you've ever seen..The amazing thing about the island, is how it maintains its 'small town' atmosphere. There are no towering high rise condos and/or apartments on the island.

Winding, narrow streets are framed with tropical trees and plants. Sea oats sway quietly in the gentle Gulf breeze.

The island's 3 cities provide access to spectacular beaches and tons of outdoor activities.

People are very friendly. There is a Free Trolley that travels the length of the island from 6:00AM-11:00PM, and is fun to ride. It can take you to island shops, awesome seafood restaurants, rustic fishing piers, ice cream shops, grocery stores, churches and more.

There are numerous activities and fun things to do--to list a few: fishing, snorkeling, diving, surfing, para-sailing, bike riding and shelling. There are canoe, jet-ski, moped, and even 'Zegway' rentals.
