Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

5 Minutes walk to the beach

Approaching Great Palms you might initially think that its name applies only to the mature trees swaying gently in the breeze at the front of this beautiful modern home. But step inside and you will discover just how great it is in a whole other sense. Recently refurbished and equipped to a very high standard, this superb split-level property offers everything you could want from a luxury vacation home – and so much more.

Outside: Great Palms hosts the largest private pool on the island (allegedly). Around the pool there are also six sun loungers on which to put your feet up in between dips in the water. There is a comfortable seating area under the upper deck, with three outdoor sofas and two overhead fans to keep you cool on those long, hot Anna Maria Island days. Also on the lower floor is a double garage with electric opening doors and space for two cars.

Beaches: The beaches have the whitest sand which slopes gently and safely into the blue Gulf Sea with the most amazing sunsets. Only 5 minutes walk from the house.

Flights from the UK via Gatwick airport land daily at Tampa International airport less than 1 hour drive away. Orlando is only a 2 hour drive away, perfect for those wanting a 2 centre break. Car hire can be booked from Tampa airport.

Interior: The light and airy open-plan living area is the perfect place to unwind with a good book, indulge your passion for cooking in the well-equipped and spacious kitchen, or put your feet up, sink into the huge sofas and watch the 50inch TV with cable and DVD player. The designer dining table seats eight in comfort, but for more informal meals there is a breakfast bar as well. With its pure white walls, high ceilings and open-plan layout, the living area conveys and wonderful feeling of space and the bedrooms continue the theme. From the sumptuous linens, to designer bathrooms and plenty of storage, no expense has been spared in creating something truly memorable.

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thank you for your kind words about Great Palms. I note you are returning in 2013 and you are very, very welcome.

To answer your questions:

The ice maker is now working, a 'bit' had come loose but is all fixed.

The towels do get washed a lot so can get worn and yes they have been replaced and I have reminded my housekeeper to replace them as soon as that is required for the future

I am so sorry the lights at the front of the house were not on for your arrival. As you know there are plenty so I guess an oversight by the housekeepers as they would have left in the daylight. You are so right in that the UK flights arrive in the evening so I'll remind Chris (who looks after the house) of the importance to do that for new arrivals.

Thanks again - Kind Regards, Jane

Spacious light and airy Villa

  • 5 of 5
Our first impressions on the villa were that the pictures did not do it justice. It was spacious, spotlessly clean with all that we needed to have a wonderful holiday.

The pool was a big attraction and many a happy afternoon was spent there. It is a bit tricky on the ouside steps especially with young children who can't wait to get to the water.We had to phone to obtain beach towels which were delivered very quickly, and we were expecting some childrens games, books or toys in the villa and there were none, but i know there had been problems with previous guests taking things. We also never got the large living room Tv to work dispite following the phone instructions.
However none of that could spoil the time we had there, Great Palms is in a wonderful location with beaches shops and resturants close by.We could have stayed longer and the 4 days we stayed in Orlando after never even came close.

Owner's Response: Thank you for kind words about Great Palms and I hope you'll be back some day.

To answer some of the points raised:

We have young children and go to the pool through the downstairs house to make it easier.

The beach towels had become quite worn so our househkeeper had removed them to get hold of some more. Sorry you had to call but glad they arrived quickly for you

There are childrens DVD's and games (lego etc) in one of the cupboards so I am thinking you didn't find them. We are out there soon ourselves so make sure we 'up' the supply, which will
please my children too!!!!!

Sorry you could not get the TV working if you had rang our housekeeper she would have come over and sorted it. Not had any problems previously with the TV.
