Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Well-kept 3/2 home, Bay Views & Close to the Beach

Pamper yourself in the casual elegance of this lovely beach haven situated on Anna Maria’s most charming avenue. Overlooking the bay from the comfort of the spacious, elevated porch that runs the length of this beautifully decorated home, you can relax and watch the world go by in “Bayside Bliss”. And when the spirit moves you, it is a five minute walk to the amazing Gulf beaches, a pleasant stroll to the lively shops and restaurants of Bridge Street, and a short bike ride to Coquina Beach in all its natural glory.

If you fancy entertaining, a well-coordinated kitchen, dining and living space provides the perfect place to enjoy good food and friends while savoring the view. The gourmet kitchen is equipped with top-line appliances, quartz countertops and a cozy breakfast bar. Adjacent is an antique dining table and hutch, complementing a comfortable living area that opens onto that wonderful porch. The large master bedroom is a delight, with its own balcony and a beautiful en suite bathroom. With two other nicely appointed bedrooms and a second full bath, Bayside Bliss is ideal for discerning beach lovers and can more than comfortably accommodate up six people.

(Please note pets cannot be accommodated.)

PLEASE NOTE A MONTH IS BASED ON 4 WEEKS OR 28 DAYS!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Could not have stayed at a more beautiful and relaxing home than Bayside Bliss. All the comforts of our home in KY, and the sunrises and sunsets were breathtaking. Loved the convenience of all the restaurants and shopping, and the sugar-white sand on the beaches. What a wonderful way to celebrate my 64th birthday and visit with our daughter, Christie who lives here and works on the island. Thank you GICM for suggesting this lovely home!

Wonderful Sunfilled holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

Bayside Bliss is wonderful home in all aspects. The Kitchen is well equipped, better than any place we have stayed in the past, with lovely modern appliances. The entire house is very tastefully appointed and clean. Each morning we would enjoy our coffee on the screened porch which was quiet, serene and peaceful. The location is just a short pleasant walk to the beach, there is a nice little park nearby for shooting hoops, and we would walk the beach in the evenings to a couple great local restaurants. There is not one thing that we did not like about this house and the location. We had perfect weather and the neighborhood is very down home, we never locked the doors and left the keys in our car. Will we be back!

Owner's Response: Bill and Family, Thank you so much for the great compliments about our home. We do try to keep everything neat and tidy and as up to date as possible. It is also important to us that you felt safe in the neighborhood and thank you for mentioning that for other potential renters as I know that is always a concern. Hope to see you soon!

Turkey Day ...

I wanted to take the time to thank this homeowner for allowing us to stay in their lovely home, on what must feel like their own little piece of Paradise!! (As well to the Rental Agency Representatives, Ellie and Bob!! Thank you!!

My Parents came to visit me & we were fortunate enough to spend a few days catching up, spending quality time together and walking on the beach which was just a few steps away from our vacation home! This home provides all the space you need for 4 people to stretch and has a well-appointed style that draws family & good friends together. We enjoyed lovely dinners, both at home & at delicious & fresh seafood restaurants, homemade ice cream and had some great laughs!!! The home is very well maintained & it's only TWO (beach) blocks from stunning waters & beaches of The Gulf of Mexico!! I can't put into words how wonderful it was to be with My Parents!!! We have always been very close in heart but 1600 miles away in where we live. This was truly a Holiday Blessing!! We would all come back again!

Hoping You and Yours had a Wonderful Holiday Season & New Year!!

Thank you for your hospitality!

Christie H. & Fam :)

We shall be back!

This is an absolutely beautiful home! All the comforts of home were here for us, and the peaceful neighborhood was a plus. This home has a screened porch, and it was so relaxing to sit there and listen to water, from the bay across the road. We felt very safe in this exclusive area, and slept peacefully every night. The perfect "home away from home" for 4 adults. We were a short bike/car ride, from the beaches and the most delicious seafood restaurants or seaside cafes. After a day at the beach/shopping, it was so nice to come back to a great place for casual dinners and fall asleep, anticipating the next days adventures. We recommend this home, and will certainly return! Thank you Gulf Islands Consulting & Management, for making our stay better than we ever dreamed!

Owner's Response: Marsha and Family (aka Momma!), Safety is a big concern for a lot of travelers and Anna Maria Island is very safe. A lot of us don’t even lock our doors and we are so glad you settled right in and felt safe and comfortable! Glad our rental agents Ellie and Bob took good care of you and YES, please come back and visit with us soon!! We certainly look forward to it!!

Anna Maria Island is located on the Central West Coast of Florida nestled between the tropical blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the West and Tampa Bay to the North. Once a best –kept secret among local Floridians, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'…

The island consists of 3 cities, Bradenton Beach being the southernmost, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria City on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique and charming shops and restaurants.

Anna Maria Island has miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions. Located close to all the major attractions, yet far from the maddening crowds make the Gulf Island Beaches the ideal vacation spot.

Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset all in a day…

You need never leave the island to find fun and relaxation. Our island is only 7 miles long and no more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of waves and visions of the sunset in every location. Enjoy a day at the beach and watch the kids play in the sand. Walk along pristine beaches and dine in award-winning restaurants, Enjoy fresh grouper sandwiches on a pier and sipping martinis while enjoying live music. Go shopping in our specialty shops and boutiques all along the island. We even have a Free Trolley to take you where you want to go. The friendly environment and endless activities will keep you coming back for more. Hop aboard and experience island paradise!
