Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House / Duplex 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Read our Feedback, 100% Positive. This is without a doubt the CLEANEST and BRIGHTEST vacation rental you will find on the island! This vacation rental is the GROUND FLOOR UNIT of a beach front duplex. (The 2 bedroom upper level unit is available as Homeaway #283104 or VRBO #260347)

Anna Maria is the first of the barrier islands located along Florida's Gulf Coast. It is about 7 miles long and 1/2 a mile wide. It is known for beautiful beaches, breathtaking sunsets and a boat load of really nice people. The number one activity in the area is to DO NOTHING AND RELAX ON THE BEACH.

This charming BEACH HOUSE is tucked away on a VERY QUIET STREET in the sleepy north end of the Island. It is the 2ND HOUSE FROM THE BEACH with no roads to block access. If you open your bedroom window at night, the only sound will be the rolling surf on the beach. This is truly the BEST LOCATION on the Island.

Your front door is less than 30 seconds from the most PRISTINE BEACH in Florida.

The sand is like powdered sugar. It never gets hot on your feet because it is 99% PURE QUARTZ. The water is warm and shallow. The fishing is excellent. The SANDBAR RESTAURANT is a 5 minute stroll down the beach.

The unit is light and bright with a multitude of windows. Everything has been recently updated in a fun coastal decor featuring hand painted starfish on the walls. Featured amenities include a 47'' Flat Panel HIGH DEFINITION TV with BLUE RAY DISC player and a great selection of movies, IPOD DOCKING STATION, and LIGHTNING FAST WI FI INTERNET. Some key features include PEEKS OF THE GULF, gleaming Mediterranean Style TERRAZZO Floors. The gourmet kitchen has GRANITE countertops and STAINLESS appliances.

Please DON'T HESITATE TO CALL or email with any questions. Book early because the premium dates will fill up fast. With its ultra premium location and brand new amenities, this is the BEST VALUE on the vacation rental market!

About Stephanie Fischer

Originally from Minnesota, my husband and I moved to Anna Maria Island 8 years ago with our children to live the dream. That dream being, residing in a small beach community with pristine beaches and powdered sugar sand. Safe, quiet streets, and a great sense of community.

Stephanie Fischer purchased this house in 2004

Why Stephanie Fischer chose Holmes Beach

We purchased this home 100% because of it's location. The view out of each west facing window is breathtaking. The property is located on a quiet dead end street and is only a few steps to one of the most pristine beaches in the world.

We stayed there for one week. Perfect quite area, very nice walk through dunes towards the beach. Beautiful nature. Not to forget the sunset. My boys loved the near city pier for fishing.

Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
Staying on the North Side of the island is ideal! We really enjoyed the location and affordability of this property (steps from the beach, biking distance to food/shops, quiet street) and it's casual/beachy decor. The little extras were all there including the beach supplies, outdoor grill, well stocked kitchen, and beach towels. Would be great to rent the upper unit and invite friends/family. We rented bikes and did not use a car all week. We went to the beach for a few hours, Body and Sol Day Spa for massages/manicures, Two Scoops for ice cream, boutique shopping all over, then onto one of the piers for sunset watching. Go to The Waterfront Restaurant at 5:00 pm to get an outdoor table. The made to order donuts at Anna Maria Donuts are irresistible, blended Mocha at Coffee Haus, tshirt shopping across the street where all the parrots will talk to you. The Publix grocery store in Bradenton is less crowded and cheaper then the one on the island. Just an all around great vacation where the family can disconnect from the world and connect with each other. You can be as lazy or active as your heart desires. We have been to the Aruba, the Exumas, and several other beaches in the U.S. and prefer AMI as the sand is literally like powdered sugar and the wildlife is breathtaking!

Girlfriend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We, 6 gals, just stayed at the Seaside Sanctuary for one, absolutely lovely week. It was the perfect setting for a girlfriend getaway. We biked, went to the beach. Went to the Sandbar. Did a Segway tour (also awesome). The house is very nicely appointed & clean. Everything you need. We did end up renting additional bikes so we could all ride around this awesome island. As Arnold said so well...We'll be back!!!!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I brought four teenage boys for a week and had the best time! The house is very nice, located on a dead end street, so you don't get any traffic. You can see the ocean from the house and the beach is so close we walked to and from the beach several times a day. We also walked down to the Sand Bar to get a cocktail several days.

We used the free trolley and the bikes from the house everyday and checked out a lot of the island. We loved having so many extras available for our use: cooler, grill, washer and dryer, skim boards, beach towels and chairs.

Stephanie is great to work with. We loved this place! It's worth every penny!

Awesome Vacation at Seaside Sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5
Seaside Sanctuary was a great way to spend our vacation on AMI! Just a one minute walk from the beautiful gulf, on the quiet north end of the island. The house was very comfortable with 4 adults & 3 children ages 17, 10 & 1. We never felt on top of each other. Stephanie & Mike have it well equipped with anything you can really think of needing! The gas grill was put to use nightly as well as the onsite laundry. The shed out back was full of all the beach necessities we could ever need, & the bathroom cabinet filled with beach towels! I would recommend this for anyone looking for a quality place to stay on AMI! I know we hope to return in the future!! Also, the island is small enough to walk around, but the free city trolley was great!
