About Debra Gutierrez

My husband is a Floridian, and we moved back to Florida from Nebraska in 1985 when our children were very young. This duplex was owned by a special aunt, and we bought it from her, with other family members, in 2002. It was built in 1956.

My husband and I are in our mid 50's. He is a radiologist and myself a registered nurse. We have four college/grad student age sons that range between the ages of 23-29. We have had some memorable times and wonderful summer vacations, shared with extended family and friends. We have been coming to the island for 30 plus years, and feel most 'relaxed' when we are here...It is easy to fall in love with the sunny, 'sugar sand' beaches, and the relaxing way of life--whether you are reading a good book, floating in the warm gentle waters, or walking along the beautiful beach watching the amazing sunsets.

We also have a VAIL TIMESHARE for week-Jan. 10-Jan 17 2015 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 2002

Why Debra Gutierrez chose Holmes Beach

Anna Maria is the perfect 'Get-a-way from it all.' It is easy to enjoy the simple pleasures of life here..

The duplex is very cozy and rustic in a quaint, secluded neighborhood. It is located only a block from the beach, well within walking distance. There are many nice shops, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. within the neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Anna Maria is beautiful with its many amenities and activities. Easy 'on-off' island access, and friendly island atmosphere. The neighborhood trolley will take you where you want to go at no charge!

Escape to a beautiful area where the sunsets are spectacular, the waters aquamarine, and enjoy the tropical breezes overlooking the Gulf.

There is plenty of beach fun, fishing, biking, shopping, and boating,

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
We love staying at Ann's House. We always choose Ann's House because it is conveniently located to the beach and the local shops and dining. We love the back porch, we have assembled many a puzzle and told lots of stories back there. My grandchildren talk about our vacations to the beach all year long and can't wait to go back. The owners are very easy to work with too. Can't wait to go back!

happy vacationers from Nebraska!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. {Property was as described, clean and very user friendly. We especially enjoyed the enclosed porch off the back and the back yard space. Just a short walk to the beautiful beach. Anna Maria had many excellent restaurants and cute shops, very easy to navigate the town. Owner was very gracious and easy to contact. Loved our stay there!

REGULAR VISITORS FROM THE U.K.

  • 4 of 5
We knew the location of this quaint home and were fortunate enough to be a andble to book it for the times we wanted - this year was our 4th stay at this property our 12th vist to Anna Maria Island. A most convenient location, a very comfortable "home from home", and helpful owners. It is spacious and comfortably furnished - not as inhibitingly over-smart as some are ! We can thoroughly recommend the property which we have shared with friends both from the UK and from California --they all loved it. An unanounced benefit here is that you can park your car all day in the cool shade of trees.
There is so much to see and do on AMI and the surrounding area, so be sure you grab the 2 local Newspapers as soon as you arrive and visit the information centre just across the way. Look out for local community events such as markets, festivals and the local theatre. Keep up your fitness by joining the Community Centre and look out for weekly Yoga on the Beach (near the Sandbar Restaurant) . Great dining at the Sign of the Mermaid (and especially good deals on breakfasts) and the Pasta Night (Wednesday) at the Bagel Shop has the best Greek Salad anywhere. If you love bargain hunting there is a brilliant shop just before the local Convenience Store and we always find some holiday clothes and other items at the Roser Thrift Shop near the City Pier (the restaurant at the end of the pier is another good place to eat). Near the Mote Aquarium a local Water Ski Display Team goes through its paces each Sunday in the early afternoon (something we don't see much in our colder climate). Pick up local maps for both their information and the discount tickets.
Don't overlook nearby Preserves and the Manatee Village (Bradenton) . Visit, relax and get sand in your toes.
P.S. Don't forget to ride bikes - the locals are very accommodating , motorists and pedestrians give you plenty of space and are wonderfully civil (we find that, when cyclinin the UK, we are often resented). If you are there for 3 weeks or more, consider buying at one of the cheap Superstores : it could be cheaper than renting and the Roser Thrift could boost their funds by selling it when you leave.

We've been staying at this wonderful place for many years now and from the very first time we've felt at home. This place - only two min walking distance from the beach without having to cross a road - is cozy, comfortable, spacious, quiet, clean ... and offers all the amenities you would expect from an upscale rental home. Being on the very laid back, old Florida style island makes you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of many a vacation destination you might know. This place is AWESOME. We'll be back - for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to write such a nice review. Nothing pleases us more than to hear that our guests have had such a great time and enjoyed their stay on AMI. Look forward to your return! The pristine beaches on the island are hard to beat, no doubt....

Anna Maria Island is wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this home for 5 years now and love it. The home is not fancy, but it has the old Florida look and feel. It is comfortable and cozy. It is on a quiet, tree lined residential street, is near the beach and within walking distance of several shops and restaurants.

Anna Maria is beautiful with its many amenities and activities. Easy 'on-off' island access, and friendly island atmosphere. The neighborhood trolley will take you where you want to go at no charge!

Escape to a beautiful area where the sunsets are spectacular, the waters aquamarine, and enjoy the tropical breezes overlooking the Gulf. There are many shops and restaurants within walking distance.

There is plenty of beach fun, fishing, biking, shopping, boating, and golf. The Mote Aquarium, Selby Gardens and Planetarium are close by

in Sarasota, and several Florida attractions are just a quick drive away.

Anna Maria Island supports a very special ecology and 'Old Florida feel.'. The laid-back lifestyle allows time to step back from the hectic stress and just walk on the beach, or enjoy a relaxing picnic at sunset.

Surrounded by the lush sub-tropical growth and island birds, you feel the peace and calmness of Times gone by... Once you've visited this island, you'll want to come back.

You can choose between a slow, leisurely, relaxing beach get-away, or a fast-paced, sight-seeing, & activity-filled vacation, or a little of both--activities are endless.

There is a Publix supermarket, Walgreens & CVS drug stores, gift shops, beach stores, 2 cafes, and BBQ, German, Japanese, & Chinese restaurants are all within 1/2 mile. ATMs and banks are nearby.

Who needs a swimming pool when you can swim in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico?????
