Overview

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.

Warm and Inviting

  • 4 of 5
We absolutely loved Anna Maria Island!! We come from a very cold climate, so we appreciated this area, the rental and the Beach! We rented the lower unit and really loved our stay. It was clean and had everything we needed. We liked the casual, beach decor. We thought the short walk to the beach was awesome and the beach on the gulf outstanding, to say the least. By our 2nd day, I think my young child said, when we come back next year. That's how lovely the area was and how much we enjoyed the unit. There is so much to do on the island if you are looking for local, and within biking and walking distance activities. Anna Maria Donuts are out of this world! Two scoops ice cream was really good too. It was just as easy to hang out on the beach and just relax. Stephanie was very nice and took care of everything. We had fast, immediate wi-fi, which we really appreciated. We also had the chance to see the upper unit - very nice. We all agreed we would go back and would recommend. Thanks for a great stay!!

30 Steps to Sand

  • 5 of 5
This rental property sets a standard that any future rentals I end up renting will have to struggle to match, I'm afraid. The property is beautiful, well-maintained, immediately comfortable, and a stone's throw from the beginning of the most delightful white sand beach, which leads after a short stroll to warm gulf water.

Not only is the street quiet, but the neighbors-- should you encounter any-- are warm and friendly. The majority of the traffic we saw while sipping coffee on the porch were couples and families exploring the island on bikes.

Stephanie is a fantastic host, quick to respond to questions, including an urgent phone text asking for the wifi password at almost 10 p.m., which was answered almost immediately.

The island itself is beautiful. It's a short walk to local restaurants, a quirky cafe, and a number of places willing to rent you bikes, golf carts, kayaks, or whatever you might need for your warm weather rambling.

My only regret is that I would have liked to spend more time there. But my wife told me that my plan to disguise myself as a butler and convince future visitors that my services come with the property would not be successful, and so I had to depart, and give you a chance to take my place.

(If you DO try the butler gambit and it works, please do let me know, if only so I can say "I told you so" to my dear wife.)

Wonderful house. Beautiful island.

  • 5 of 5
Our gang of four stayed here for three nights in early October 2014. It was perfect. Stephanie is a pleasure to deal with, and the house was as immaculate as promised. The beach is gorgeous and uncrowded. Our vacation was comfortable, safe, and extremely relaxing!

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!!!!
