Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

One-level 3 bedroom home with PRIVATE, heated pool, just steps to the beach

STYLE, EASE, and COMFORT -- This one-level (NO STAIRS) duplex home, was completely redone in 2011 with a “beachy” theme and an updated, well-equipped kitchen (stainless steel appliances and granite counters). The King Master Bedroom (with en suite bathroom), Queen Guest Room, and Twin Bedroom provide comfortable sleeping for 6 guests.

LOVE THAT BEACH -- Less than a 2 minute walk to the white sand beaches of the Gulf and just a short walk to Publix, drugstores, restaurants, and the Free Trolley stops, you will find everything you might need without ever having to get in a car.

NEED A BEACH BREAK? -- Relax in the fenced-in, private backyard with your own (not shared) heated pool. The waterfall, swim-up seating area, and sun-shelf wading area add to the ambience of the lushly landscaped backyard, with gas grill and outdoor patio seating.

FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT -- You’ll be entertained and connected with the 3 flat-screen TVs, DVD, and Wi-Fi. The private garage stores your beach cart, beach umbrella and sand toys, as well as 2 bicycles for your island adventures.

About Linda Carmon

We’re just two lifelong New Englanders who, after 45 years of owning a family business and raising 4 children, are looking forward to a time when we can fully enjoy the blessings of family, health, and resources that God has given us, and do that in a little piece of His paradise. We love every season on AMI, so we come down as often as possible, but hope to become true “snowbirds” in a few years.

Linda Carmon purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda Carmon chose Holmes Beach

Parents of 4 sons, and grandparents of six beautiful granddaughters, we wanted a place to lure everyone away for lasting family memories. Like most people, we fell in love with Anna Maria Island on our first visit, and by the second, we were looking for our own home. We actually have two homes so we can spread out when we’re all together, and Palms Beach House West is perfect for one of our son's family of five. The total family gatherings are rare, so in the meantime, we enjoy sharing this great vacation retreat with other families and couples visiting AMI.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location – literally steps (200) from the beautiful Gulf beach and easy walking distance to Publix, drugstores, and restaurants. From the nearby Free Trolley stop, you can cover the entire island, from Bean Point in Anna Maria to Coquina Beach, enjoying the unique character of each section of the island.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a relaxing stay of 7 weeks in this very comfortable home. If there were any issues during our stay, the owner took care of them immediately, and we were never inconvenienced. This was our 3rd year on AMI and, we found the location of this house to be perfect. It is a very short walk to the beautiful beach and close to the Publix, Walgreens, souvenir shops, and restaurants. It is, also, easy to get to both the Manatee and Cortez causeways, for those wanting to explore Bradenton, Sarasota, and points beyond AMI.

This was the second stay at this property for my wife and me. The house is modern, clean and conveniently located on AMI. The owner is great to interact with and makes the transaction easy. We are already looking forward to our next stay!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this house. It was a very easy 2 minute walk to the beach, my 10 & 6 yr old didn't complain once. Very quick drive or 5min walk to Publix and the strip malls with souvenir shops and ice cream, also very central to many restaurants on the island. The house was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Nobody wanted to get out of the pool between the sun shelf w/ umbrella & chairs and the table & benches. The backyard always had some sort of shade, which was an added bonus for us. This was a great spot for our first visit to AMI.

Just great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The house was very well equipped, the beds were all very comfy, and the pool was great. Easy access to the beach, and if you walk down the sidewalk across fe the garage you are right at publix . The bikes in the garage were new and we rode to longboat key and across the bridge to Cortez to take a boat tour and have lunch at

The Stardish seafood company. GREAT TIMES!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a perfectly relaxing vacation in this beautiful, thoughtfully appointed vacation home. From the heavenly beds to the impeccably landscaped private backyard pool oasis, this property exceeded our expectations. Linda has thought of everything. You arrive to an immaculately clean and inviting home. All you need to bring are your clothes. We enjoyed cooking in the gorgeous kitchen equipped with all the necessities or grilling by the pool. When it's time for the beach, you just stroll to the attached garage to select your beach chairs, toys, floats and umbrella. The pristine beach is a short walk from the house. We loved returning from the beach to a refreshing outdoor shower and a dip in the pool. Publix is a short walk down a palm tree lined path. The bikes provided were great for exploring the island. When we had a question about the AC, Linda responded immediately to our call. We felt at home from the minute we arrived. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and relatives. We could not have been happier! I can't wait to return! Thank you Linda for sharing your piece of paradise!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic 2 weeks. The house was everything described and so much more. The location can't be beat. Just a few steps to the beach and the grocery store, shops and fantastic restaurants just around the corner. We used the bikes a lot they came in very handy. The garage was fully stocked with beach chairs, pool floats and sand toys. The house was the perfect size for our family it had everything we needed for our 2 year old. We especially liked having the safety alarms on the doors. The pool was great, we were in the pool at some point every day. I would recommend this house to anyone. Linda was fantastic to work with and we can't wait to book this house again for our next trip to Anna Maria.
