The four bedroom home is furnished with a king bed in the master suite, bedrooms two and three both have queen beds, and bedroom 4 is a kids sanctuary with two doubles on a loft/ bunk bed. This room also has ski ball and a Wii gaming system with a few games and two controllers. Please feel free to bring your favorite games to play.

ALL BEDROOMS HAVE FLAT SCREEN TVs & CABLE. Master bedroom has TV/DVD combo, Bedroom #2 has a 29inch smart TV.

HEATED POOL/ SPA

Finally, relax in your 'private' lagoon like pool with tanning ledge, swim up tiki table, infinity edge hot tub/spa, waterfall, deck jets and a volcano bubbler jet on the sun ledge. Landscape lighting provides a resort like feel, and is located throughout the property. Forget your worries, 'You're on island time' and yes, you'll be back again.'

Just three blocks to white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Also nearby are wonderful shops, and restaurants that Holmes Beach has to offer. PUBLIX shopping center 1.2 miles away.

We do ask for a signed hold harmless waiver and proof of driver(s) having SEV coverage (Slow Electric Vehicle coverage), which is typical on most Ins. policies.

About Joseph & Erica Darby

We moved to Anna Maria in 2011 beacause we fell in love with the beautiful island. My sister and her family of 6 moved here in 2008, and we vacationed here so often to visit with them that we just decided to make the move. Unfortunately for us we had to move back to Ohio for the next two years for my wife to finish her degree and for my business (for now).

Joseph & Erica Darby purchased this house in 2012

Why Joseph & Erica Darby chose Anna Maria

The pool is truly one of the best on the island! New synchronized LED color changing lights (3 in all). Color options of your choice. The electric golf cart is great, stops on a dime, and tops out at 20 MPH. The house is a fun & unique mix of modern and original. There is a real island feel to the place, and it is very welcoming. We love our home and hope you will as well...

What makes this house unique

Outdoor and Interior updates with construction completed late August 2013!

The fifth bedroom is being added in the Fall of 2015 we are all booked up until then anyways...

Pool with Spa, including fun water features and spectacular lighting.

Golf Cart is included, and is allowed on certain streets of the island, and provides easy access to the beach. Our home is only three short blocks to the beach, but you may never want to leave the majestic pool. There is a great design and flow to the home. We have provided nice linens (450+ thread count) and all the amenities to feel right at home. The spacious patio has plenty of outdoor seating and includes a gas grill. Three sun loungers sit about the pool and a there is a hammock chair for an extra island feel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were the first to enjoy Casa Laguna! I was a bit hesitant but Joe put my nerves at ease. The homeowner went above and beyond to make sure all was set for our arrival. The house was better then the pics on line - large enough for several families to enjoy their stay. We had a three year old with us and he absolutely loved the skeeball game in the kids room. The Pool and patio is beautiful!! It was finished the day we arrived so I'm sure it's even writer now with proper landscaping and touch ups. I can't wait to spend another week/weekend at this home. Location on the island is centrally located in Holmes Beach - we rode our bikes and the golf cart everywhere. I have rented several houses through VRBO and this is definetly one of my favorites! Thank you Joe, it was exceptional!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us (6 adults & 4 children) spent one wonderful week at this home. With four bedrooms and the open floor plan, we had plenty of room. Everyone loved the pool and spa. The children spent several hours swimming and playing in the pool each day. We found that we didn't explore the island as much as we thought we would because the pool was the highlight of each day. We did go to the beach on two occassions which was beautiful. The golf cart was awesome for giving the kids rides as well as putting the 23 month old to sleep. We hired the sitter that Joe recommended on one evening and went to dinner at the Sandbar, which was delicious and then went to a small local bar afterwards and enjoyed playing pool and having some drinks. Li-Day was the sitter and the kids loved her. I would highly recommend vacationing at this home!

Splendid vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had two wonderful weeks in this great home. This was a family gathering where we had the opportunity to spend time together all under the same roof. The house is very nice, the layout and the interior design is truly nice and functional. The children loved the pool and the game room. The golf cart was nice to have, both for shorter rides and transport to the beach. Anna Maria Island is a nice neighborhood, although the traffic at some times can be too much and therefore slow. The beach is fantastic, clean with it´s white sand. We went to the Sandbar Restaurant for the Sunday jazz brunch, something to recommend. Not to forget Skinny´s burgers, they tasted absolutely fantastic. Joe was very helpful on all practical issues and responded always very quickly. The weather was just great, sunshine all the time with nice temperatures. We shall most certainly return to this wonderful location and great house!

Owner's Response: Hello Asgeir, It was so cool having some people stay at our house all the way from Iceland! It is someplace my wife and I would someday like to visit. I'm glad you guys had a wonderful vacation. It's nice to hear that the house worked out well for your big group as well. Thanks again! Take Care, Joe & Erica Darby

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

A great vacation home for our extended family. The kids room/game room and large living area were a hit with our four grandsons (6 and under). Loved the open kitchen/dining/living area. The golf cart was a great way to get back and forth to the nearby beach, and the free trolley stops at the door and takes you everywhere on the island. Loved the pool. It was a perfect week, despite less than perfect weather.

Owner's Response: Thank you kindly for the awesome comments. We are happy to read the kids room worked out so well for your crew and probably especially helped during some lame weather. I need to take better photos of the home, definitely in the kitchen area. the pool from a high angle etc. You really can't tell how cool the pool is, anyways I am blabbering. Keep in touch...

A Month of Fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four weeks and I'm so glad I chose this home. This was my first time to Anna Maria Island. I had no idea where to stay or who to book with. Joe, the owner of this property, made everything easy. He's a really nice guy and I could just tell he is an honest person. You never know what you're getting until you actually show up. The reviews and Joe's explanation of this home are all true. This home has it all; pool, hot tub, grill, toys, plenty of beds, nice kitchen, golf cart and more. Great beach house and lots of great memories! I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hello Dean, We are glad you stayed at our place. From the previous conversations and texts back and forth, it really seemed like you all were having fun. That is what vacation is all about relaxation and fun! Thanks for the post.

Beautifully Appointed Home in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay in this beautiful home. Owners have gone to great length to make sure guests have what they need for a most enjoyable vacation. It's comfortable, spacious, clean and we appreciated Joe's easy-going communications. He makes himself available during the visit if you have questions. Loved the pool and the electric cart sure was a fun addition. I have stayed in many homes on the island and this one gets top ratings! We will return and I'll recommend to friends. Thanks for everything Joe.
