About Alex Gore

We are a family of designers. You'll feel it reflected in every detail of our Happy Island Cottage.

We love to travel to exotic destinations, mostly tropical ;)

Alex Gore purchased this house in 2012

Why Alex Gore chose Holmes Beach

We were looking for a vacation home for a long time until we found and fell in love with our Happy Island Cottage on Anna Maria Island. The location was just perfect with beautiful relaxing beaches and friendly and casual atmosphere. The house was perfect as well with its modern design and a wealth of new features. It was full of light and each time we were there it was making us feel just happy. We were getting same kind of reaction from all of our friends and guests who were staying there with us. So it was an easy decision for us to name the house “Happy Island Cottage”.

What makes this house unique

Now a few more details about the house. It has a nice, tropical and private backyard with a heated pool, a spacious outdoors seating area and a brand new grill. On the interior the house is decorated with love and style. Each one of the three bedrooms is spacious and has its own tropical character. Two bedrooms have king size beds, the third has a set of twin beds. The dining and living areas are very comfortable and furnished with brand new furniture. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped with all new appliances. Every woman staying in this house will appreciate the laundry room with a set of high capacity and high efficiency LG washer and dryer.

The Happy Island Cottage is located only 400 steps from the beach and 200 steps from marina, where you can dock your boat or book a fishing or a sunset trip, or rent a kayak. The main island shopping plaza is located two blocks away, so you don't have to drive to get to the restaurants, shops and bars.

Overall, staying at the Happy Island Cottage is a truly relaxing experience that will make your vacation feel longer and more happy.

We walked in the door and said WOW this place is beautiful. We walked out after a week's stay and said WOW we want to come back to this place. The house had everything we needed and more. Alex was a dream to work with. I highly recommend this rental for your next vacation on Anna Maria Island. LOVE IT!

Beautiful Home from Home

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing house with great facilities. We are a family of 4 with a 16 year old daughter and 19 year old son. My daughter loved her 'attic' bedroom. All bedrooms had plenty of wardrobe and storage space. We had some bad weather during our stay and the TV entertainment system was very useful. The private pool was like a lovely warm bath and we enjoyed 'lizard watching' from the pool. The veranda offered some much needed shade and the outdoor chairs and sun loungers were very comfortable. The house is a 3 - 4 minute stroll to a beautiful white sugar sand beach one way and a 1 minute walk to the trolley bus stop the other way. Alex the owner came to meet us when we arrived and he gave us some very useful tips on places to visit and eat. I recommend a visit to Starfish Company, just over Cortez bridge - the food is AMAZING - no frills but simply delicious. The best soft shell crab sandwich I've ever tasted. We would definitely stay at Happy Island Cottage again if we return to Anna Maria Island in the future.

On the island for a family wedding!

  • 5 of 5
We recently had the pleasure of staying at Happy Island Cottage for a week in September. We were very happy with the house, which was spotless and very well maintained. The house and the back yard and pool area were wonderful. The back yard is your own little oasis! It was a short walk to the beach and close to shops and restaurants. We had spoke to the owner Alex on the phone a few times before we arrived, and once we met him in person we were very pleased, Alex was very friendly and easy to deal with and made us feel welcome in his home! He was there to answer any questions we had and to give us ideas of things to do on the island. We would most definitely rent this property or any other property from Alex again! We will be back!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this awesome house for nearly two weeks (4 ad., 3 kids aged 9-11). Upon our arrival we found a bottle of champagne and a key lime pie in the fridge.Thank you again Alex! We finished both gifts off immediately as we celebrated our daughter's birthday.....!
The house is very well maintained and managed and truly beautiful. Alex came over personally to welcome us and gave us great tips for restaurants, shops and excursions.
The beach is a good 5 min walk away, easily accessible and not crowded at all. You don't need a car on the island, but it makes life easier, especially when you stay there during summer and the famous Florida sun is burning!
The house and the pool are very clean and well maintained. We sometimes cooked our own meals in the evening. The kitchen has everything you need. Supermarkets are not far away and you can find what you need and even more. Beds are comfy and clean and enough towels are provided for the bath rooms and the pool.
Over all we had a wonderful time in this house. If ever coming back from Europe to Anna Maria, we would rent this house again for sure.
Thank you Alex for having us in your wonderful home!
All the best, Miriam

Great choice. Everything we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a week of relaxation after spending 9 action packed days in Orlando. Stayed with my husband, my parents and our 3 boys aged 9 6 and 3. We were personally greeted by Alex who was really welcoming, provided us with useful information about the area and showed us around his beautiful home. The house worked really well for us. We took the 2 top floor bedrooms and my parents had the bedroom leading out to the pool area where they sat outside and enjoyed the morning sun. The house is exactly as it looks in the photographs and is really well equipped. We found it to have everything we needed. Really well situated, just a short drive from Publix Supermarket and within easy walking distance to the beach and Eat Here restaurant. The boys enjoyed hiring fishing rods on Rod and Reel pier and watching the Manatees and Pelicans from the Pier. We enjoyed watching the amazing sunsets from The Sandbar restaurant and just taking in the beauty of Bean Point. We would love to return to laid back Anna Maria Island again and wouldn't hesitate in choosing Happy Island Cottage again.
