Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10 with Incredible Pool Area! Pet Friendly!

Villa Maria is a one-of-a-kind, luxury (but comfortable), 4 bedroom/3 bath home in the center of Anna Maria Island. Please check with us for permission if you have a small dog you would like to bring along! Centrally located on the island in Holmes Beach, you are only a 2 minute stroll to the beach (with a life guard) or to the free trolley service that will take you to most places on the island within just a few minutes’ drive. You are also within walking distance to the Publix grocery store and many other shops and restaurants. Anna Maria Island Beach Café is just across the street on the Beach which offers a GREAT breakfast. You can enjoy your meal while sitting with your toes in the white sand of Anna Maria! Try their all you can eat pancakes or go for scrambled eggs, bacon and fries washed down with limitless cups of coffee. They also offer entertainment in the evenings AND have rental equipment for all of your beach needs! All the conveniences are close but Villa Maria is located at the end of a closed street so you can still maintain your privacy and seclusion in this great island getaway. From the deep, rich cherry wood flooring and cabinetry throughout the house to the lush tropical pool, this home has it all. There are beautiful crown moldings, classic looking ceiling fans, beautiful tiles and an elevator that travels from the bottom floor garage up to the third floor lookout tower.

The home is laid out on one floor making it a flowing and livable space with a great kitchen boasting granite countertops and stainless appliances. The cabinets are fully equipped with dishes, pots, pans, silverware and small appliances so you can prepare anything from a light meal to a full evening dinner party. Bringing the groceries in is easy, just use the elevator. You can also take the stairs or the elevator to the tower terrace that has views of the surrounding island and glimpses of the beach and the gulf! Enjoy an evening cocktail while catching one of the amazing sunsets that Anna Maria is famous for! (In the unlikely event that the elevator becomes inoperable, please keep in mind the stairs will be the only entry to the living area of the home.)

The King Master Bedroom is spacious with a wet bar and fridge and the master bath is en suite with a Jacuzzi tub and glass shower with 7 shower heads! The 1st guest room has a Queen Bed with adjoining bath with a glass shower/tub combination. The 2nd guest room has two twin beds and the bath boasts a walk-in shower. Let’s not forget about the 'Tower Shaped' Queen guest room with its unique design! With a Queen pull-out couch in the living area there is plenty of room for everyone!

Villa Maria also boasts a large, furnished terrace overlooking the pool with sliding glass doors that can completely enclose the area, which makes for a very comfortable space on a cool evening or leave them open to enjoy the tropical pool and the soothing sounds of the waterfall. Enjoy the flat screen TV while you are grilling out and relax under your own tiki hut with your meal!

Villa Maria offers simply everything you need for a high end, Anna Maria Island experience but with that Home-Away-From-Home feel.

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

Loved this home and the island!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for us all. We enjoyed a lot of time in the pool and on the beach. We made fantastic meals in the beautiful kitchen. The tower was great to enjoy a nice breakfast every morning. It also gave us plenty of room to have our own space when needed at times, but that wasn't too often. We will definitely return.

Owner's Response: Melissa, We are thrilled that you liked our home and so glad you will be returning. We do agree that the home does offer a few “hidden spots” where you can get away from the rest of the crew if need be. The tower is my favorite spot also for breakfast and for those great Anna Maria Island sunsets. Thanks, again.

Nice getaway for chilly northerners!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at Villa Maria! Our group consisted of 7 adults, 3 children, ages 2-5, and our elderly cocker spaniel. The space worked out great, kitchen was well-equipped, and the furnishings were comfortable. We especially liked that the pool was away from the main living space and secure, since we had little children with us. I had to laugh when I looked in the garage and found a stroller and lots of beach toys as we had hauled all our own stuff down in our car! I would comment that the light switches are confusing, it took us days to figure them out, and more labeling might help. I also felt that better shades/light restriction would make the turret bedroom more comfortable and private. Location was perfect with proximity to Publix, CVS, and the beach although it was necessary to use crosswalks to get across the road as traffic was heavy most of the time. We really enjoyed the Anna Maria Island Museum --- even had a scavenger hunt for the 5 year olds. We also took the nature walk at the southern end of the island, poked around St Armand's Circle, and spent the better part of a day at the Ringling Museum. All very enjoyable. We enjoyed good meals at the Waterfront Restaurant and Eat Here. We would be happy to return and would recommend this property to anyone with a large group. Bob and Ellie were very helpful with our questions, especially our water issue when the pool maintenance guy left the main water valve off! If you could have provided better weather, our 2 weeks would have been perfect!

Owner's Response: Gramma, We are so glad you enjoyed your 2 weeks at Villa Maria and that you found everything you needed. The proximity to the beach is one of our favorite features as well and being so close to everything else is a plus! Thank you for your suggestions on labeling the light switches as we have not had anyone else comment on them therefore never thought about it!! Same goes for the shades in the turret room. Ellie and Bob do an incredible job for us as we are pleased that they were helpful to you as well.

My family consisting of eight stayed in rental 500633 for seven nights in Feb. 2015. We were very impressed with the ease of booking this reservation, the friendly assistance we received from Bob and Ellie. The house

far exceeded our expectations, in design, location, and was very clean. We appreciated the beach towels, and

other beach accessories, available. I would stay here again, and will highly recommend this property to my

friends.

Super Fun House & Visit!

Owners,

My husband and I really enjoyed your house for the week we were there! We celebrated our engagement, took pictures, walked to the beach, hung out in our own private pool, and toured the town! The food was amazing, the people are very friendly and the house was spectacular.

Thanks for sharing your home with us, we will DEFINITELY be back, and possibly bring our parents & friends next time!

Thank you

Beautiful home near the beach

  • 4 of 5

The home is very well kept and stocked with everything you would need. Not as close the the beach as expected and not a great way to get there except to drive. Lots of parking near the beach access. Would stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are so very glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Maria and found it well stocked and well kept although I am a bit perplexed about your comment on the proximity to the beach?? The home is literally less than a 2 minute walk and there is a direct path just 2 houses down. Since you did not leave your name and only logged in as "Vacation Expert" I am at a loss as to how to contact you but please feel free to contact us and I will be glad to show you the path! We are available 24/7 to help while you are here on your vacation also!

Villa Maria

  • 5 of 5

Great Thanksgiving week with family of 8 in a beautiful home with a seriously fun but private pool! The elevator was a true godsend since one family member walks slowly with a cane. Bicycling up and down the island was great fun for us all and we even found an electric bike to rent at the cycle shop close to Publix for our family member with the cane! I was so impressed that every beach item one could need was provided at the house, including the beach cart to carry everything. We loved walking the beach and the nightly music at the beach cafe, Mote Marine Aquarium, St. Armand's Circle in Sarasota, The White Egret Gift Shop, all the restaurants (I think we tried them all). An AWESOME visit was had by all and we would recommend this property really to anyone!

Owner's Response: Pam and Family, We are so glad that you enjoyed Villa Maria and especially the great pool area. It is incredible and is so private and tropical! The elevator does make getting your luggage in and out very simple plus as you mentioned it is a big help if you have a bit of trouble getting around. As you know Publix and the Beach Café are not the only things within walking distance from Villa Maria but it sure sound like you took full advantage of everything the area has to offer. Please do come back to visit!!

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!
