We moved from Tampa, FL to Anna Maria Island full-time in 2011.

I was born and raised in Tampa and visited Anna Maria Island many times as a child.

After selling my computer software business in 2007, I bought a 'weekend' place in Holmes Beach in 2008. I immediately fell in love with the island and the friendliness of the locals.

It is a charming small town that I know you too will enjoy.

BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, TASTEFULLY DECORATED...LOVELY!

  • 5 of 5
My family had an amazing time at this home for our summer vacation last week. This was our first trip to Anna Maria Island and it lived up to and even exceeded every one of our expectations. The home is simply laid out, the kitchen well stocked, the pool area perfect...we could not have asked for more. The little shed in the back stocked with beach toys and a beach buggy was so helpful. The sunsets on this island are absolutely stunning! A wonderful vacation home in a wonderful place on earth:)

GREAT HOME WITH FANTASTIC OWNERS!!

  • 5 of 5
Such a wonderful home! Brand new! Comfy beds and wonderful tropical landscaping. Debi and Lori were wonderfully accommodating - they even purchased and installed a full length mirror after I noted it would be a nice addition to their home!!

The home has everything you need for a fantastic family holiday! The pool area was so relaxing we rarely left the house except to pick up groceries and take out! We loved the recliners in the living room - my husband and I felt like Archie and Edith Bunker - lounging, chatting and watching the big screen TV at night!!

We have rented many homes on AMI and this by far was most definitely one of the nicer ones! The pool heat was great and they don't even charge you! We were nicely surprised that their pool temperature was not the normal 80 degrees that most homes have but mid 80's! They have thought of everything someone on holiday would need - and if there is anything that requires attention Lori and Debi are quick to respond! It was such a welcome change from the sometimes non personable management companies we normally rent from.

Thank you so much Lori and Debi for sharing your home with us!

Steve, Ann and Joshua

My family and I stayed for a week at this beautiful house on Anna Maria Island. The house was perfectly stocked for every anticipated need and beyond! The private pool was great as was the short walk to the beach. There was plenty of room for the whole family and Debi was quickly responsive to any questions we had. We've already discussed renting again for next year!

LOVELY HOME AWAY FROM HOME WITH MY OWN SWIMMING POOL!

  • 5 of 5
We came from Minnesota to escape a really bad winter. We really lucked out, the pictures didn't lie! We really enjoyed staying in this house in a quiet neighborhood. The owners have done a great job with decorating and the well equipped kitchen. My husband enjoyed having the internet and cable tv and I enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the pool. Our kids and grandkids came for a long weekend and we filled every room. My daughter-in-laws want to come back next year for longer so I've already booked! It was great to have washer/dryer and the ground floor layout was great for my husband and for little kids. The property was clean and well kept. We ate at "Feast" several times, "The Waterfront' twice and had take out Mexican and seafood from nearby places, one could walk to. We also ate at home and used the kitchen and grill. I found a yoga studio, got my hair cut and a pedicure just a short drive away. We also visited the art galleries on the island and in Bradenton. With the kids we did a day long boat trip to Egmont Island out of St. Petersburg to see porpoises, shell collecting and some went snorkeling. We took a day trip to visit friends in Venice. Next year we will get to Ringling Museum and the aquarium. Owners were very helpful and we enjoyed meeting them.

BEAUTIFUL, PRIVATE, AND SO WELL DONE

  • 5 of 5
This place was a total gem. It was immaculately clean, newly decorated, and such a relaxing and comfortable place to spend a week. Plenty of space, very cozy, full of light.

The house is extremely well outfitted. The owners thought of lots of generous little touches that really made a difference in our comfort: luggage racks in each bedroom, extra dishes so we weren't always washing them, hand soap, plenty of beach towels, tons of kitchen utensils and small appliances, and beach chairs and supplies.

It's a side-by-side duplex, but only one bedroom wall is shared with the other side. We barely heard our neighbors and didn't see them at all -- it was like having a separate house. The backyard was totally private and fenced.

It's just a short walk to the beach, but we spent most days lounging by the lovely pool. There are also lots of little stores and restaurants within walking distance, and the trolley stops half a block away. The house is on a quiet little street with very little through traffic.

Debi was very helpful and communicative, and even coordinated with my rental company to have some baby items delivered before we arrived. She also called after our arrival to make sure we had everything we needed.

We go to AMI every year and have had varying experiences with the houses we've rented, even when going through rental companies -- we'll come back to this sweet place every year now. Highly recommended!

Anna Maria Island is a quaint Barrier Island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico.

Beautiful turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are the main attraction here. It is a place where 'old' Florida charm can still be found, flip flops are a way of life and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph.

High rise condos and fast food restaurants are pleasantly absent from our pristine 'get away from it all' island.

Our accommodations and restaurants offer something for everyone. From quaint cottages by the sea to deluxe suites, from million-dollar villas to rustic cottages.

One visit to Anna Maria Island and you will be calling it, 'My island in the sun'.
