Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5) so-o-o-o close to the beach!

This beautiful 1000 square foot ground floor unit is half of a duplex (see Listing #86992 for upstairs unit). This cozy island retreat has been thoughtfully furnished with a decorator's touch. Scroll to the bottom of this page and after the Owner Info you will find a link to our VIRTUAL TOUR, as well as a link to our upstairs unit's listing and you can take a walk through our little bit of paradise!

Grab a beach cart, beach chairs and towels (all provided) because you're just steps away from the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Back from the beach, rinse off in the outdoor shower and relax by the intimate heated patio pool in the tropical atmosphere of your tranquil home away from home.

Cook to your heart's content in your fully appointed kitchen or take a short stroll down the block to one of the best restaurants in Florida. Catch the island trolley and try out some of our island's other wonderful restaurants or check out the local shopping, City Pier and other attractions.

It's impossible to miss the amazing sunsets! You can watch from the comfort of your lanai or join the sunset pilgrimage to the beach.

After a day of perfect indulgence, you're assured a restful night wrapped in the finest linens while the soothing tropical breezes lull you to sleep.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ambiance II was a perfect rental property. It was clean, well equipped, and ready for our arrival. We were very comfortable at the home and couldn't have asked for a better location. Excellent set up for a small family. Thanks!

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults 2 small kids) have stayed here a couple times now and every time we leave loving it more. The unit is clean, comfortable and inviting - all the things you're looking for on a vacation. The patio and pool are a perfect escape from beach and the outdoor shower shows that they thought of everything. The beach is so close when you're ready to go back, it's right there! The owners provide beach towels and chairs for the beach. Everything about the island is relaxing ( with enough activities for the kids too!)

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation on AMI was simply perfect and the accommodations on Holmes Beach were no less than equally perfect. The duplex was clean, comfortable, and so well stocked -- everything you would ever need in the kitchen to items for the beach to books and games to play in the occasional non-beach weather. The pool is very private and relaxing, its only competition being sunsets on the beach--which is literally steps away. The owners provided excellent service and go over and above to make your stay as enjoyable as possible providing tips and recommendations for things to do or places to eat on the island. This rental property is easy to highly recommend. We are definitely looking forward to future vacations staying in this property.

I was just looking at the availabiltiy for 2013 and realized I had never done a review. We have stayed in this unit five times and 2013 with be our 6th. We love Anna Maria Island and this unit is in a great location on the island and across the street from the beach. The unit is decorated so cute and everyting you might need for a comfortable stay is provided in a clean and well maintained unit. They even provide beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, noodles and a cart to take everything to the beach. If your not up for the beach there is a great pool. We have recommended this place to family and friends who have also stayed there.

Nice rental

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the heated pool, the beach and the having the trolley close by. However, the seating in the living area was a bit lacking, a two seater sofa for three people. The sofa is older. There is a very hard wooden bench, a two seater. All in al,l it is a nice, clean rental but needs some tlc.

Owner's Response: Our duplex was designed to accommodate those guests with larger, as well as smaller space and price requirements. We appreciate that you were able to compromise on your three week stay with us and downsize to our ground floor unit for the second and third week. It is always a bit harder to transition from a larger, spacious unit to a quainter, more efficiently designed unit. Glad you did though, and were able to enjoy the heated pool, beautiful beach and trolley. We look forward to your next visit and hopefully the larger unit will be available for the entire length of your stay.

Even in a tropical storm it was a lot of fun!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to the property during tropical storm Debbie, it was horrible weather but the house was nice. It is so close to the beach which was perfect because we only got small breaks in the storm and we could run to the beach to lay out and play in the waves ! The heated pool was also very nice to have , we swam in the rain and it was a lot of fun!!! We had great neighbors upstairs and it was really nice to talk to them. The storm broke about half way through our stay and everything was perfect! I would totally recommend this property !
