Great Location Close To Beach At The Perfect Price

  • 4 of 5
This house was close to the beach in Holmes Beach and close to the Intracoastal. You only have to cross one "major" road to get to the beach from this property. This property also backs up to a Mangrove forest and has a nice little dock. The dock didn't seem too sturdy so I wouldn't recommend loading it up with lots of people. If you kayak or SUP and have your own equipment, a short walk away from the beach will bring you to a good spot to get in the water. Publix is just up the road and this house is in a good location to head towards Bradenton or Sarasota. The pool was a great feature and there was a propane grill outside with a fire pit/bbq pit out there as well. I was looking forward to the hammock, but it looked like it had seen better days. This property was a great deal compared to some of the more expensive properties on the island. This house itself is a little bit older and it does not appear that the owner vacations to themselves, in that some of the appliances are older (dishwasher, stove/oven, fridge) and with some updating to the house it could really blow you away. The washer and dryer are around the outside and were fairly new. I rated this a 4 but would go with a 3.5 if I could. When we arrived there was a slightly funky smell coming from underneath the cabinets in the kitchen, I realize this is an older home but finally found the problem to be in the dishwasher. We didn't end up using this appliance but there was a few inches of standing water in the dishwasher that was getting moldy and stank up the kitchen when it was open. The maintenance guy showed up one night to manually drain the water from the dishwasher and was very friendly/helpful. This property is dog friendly which is why we choose it, it was perfect for our two small dogs. The back bedroom of the house (the one with the double doors) has its own window a/c unit (maybe it was an unconditioned space in the house previously?). I did not have the same experience with the neighbor as someone else did. She seemed very friendly and said hello when we were outside. It was just me and my wife with our two dogs, so we tended to be a little quieter than someone who might have a family with them. In all, I didn't get that "beach" feel from inside the house with the bright colors but the backyard/pool was great, the location was awesome. I might stay here again but if traveling with family would pay a little more for an up to date look/feel.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 4yr old son and I stayed here back at the beginning of June. We had a blast. The house is nicely kept and we loved all the skylights. They totally brightened up the house. The walk to the beach was short and the wagon that the owners provided was great for toting my son back and forth. The pool and pool area were great for relaxing. My family loved having access to the Bayou right in the backyard. My son and husband would sit out there and TRY to fish. The house is perfectly placed. You have the bay a short walk on one side and the Gulf a short walk on the other. If you need to run to the grocery store it is a quick drive down Gulf Dr. There is also a pizza place, Chinese restaurant, ice cream place, and a cafe right by the grocery store. And if you don't feel like driving, the trolley stop is at the end of the block.

Great place

  • 4 of 5
The home was great and we were all sad to leave and wished we could stay longer. It had more than enough room for our family of 4 and could probably fit at least 6 comfortably. We loved the small private pool, my 10 year old used it every second we were there. It had everything we needed to have a great vacation. There was even a propane grill. One thing I would note, I was irritated the 1st day we arrived because I thought there was a washer/dryer but could not find one. I did end up finding it later that day, its located in a little alcove around the side of the house, just thought I'd add that so no one else would get frustrated, lol . 2 min walk to a beautiful beach with sand IMO as soft and cool as Siesta Key's. The only thing we didn't love, had nothing to do with the home. The 1st night we arrived, the neighbors next door talked loudly about hating vacationers and made it clear they were not thrilled we would be staying there. Unfortunitely, it seemed to be a sentiment shared by alot of the locals as we recieved pretty lukewarm service at many of the Island establishments when they realized we were vacationers. Luckily, most of our activities were not on the Island and we did not get the same cold reception anywhere else. April who handled renting the home was great and even with the unexpected last minute addition of having to bring my Dog was nothing but helpful and friendly. All in all we loved our vacation and are already planning another trip later this year, if it's available when we do we will most likely rent this home again.
