Overview

Holmes Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 full bath, sleeps 4, wireless internet

This designer decorated 1 bedroom, 1 bath is a ground floor cottage. The cottage is 30 steps from the beautiful emerald green gulf beaches. You will enjoy beach views from every room. Park your car next to the cottage and walk right in. The covered veranda offers a great breeze, beautiful views and sounds of the waves coming ashore. Eat outside on the veranda if you wish. At the beach, relax on a bench under a large shade tree allowing you to get out of the sun at any time and still be on the beach.

Night or day, there is always a breeze and the sounds of the waves heard from the cottage. One house from the beach!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We came over spring break and enjoyed our stay. Clean and comfortable, a good size for just 2 people. Nice access to the beach, which is just a few yards away. We enjoyed having all of the beach chairs, umbrellas, and kayak available for use. It was nice not to have to buy or rent all of that stuff at extra cost. We like to just hang out on the beach and having all of this available was a nice bonus.

Wonderful Beach Blessings!

  • 4 of 5

A cozy cottage great for two people only feet from a beautiful beach. Having the use of the beach chairs etc was a great convenience and very thoughtful.

Awesome time

  • 5 of 5

Clean and neat. So close to the beach you can hear the waves. Beautiful sunsets on the veranda. We had all of our meals there. Thanks Loren, hope to return again.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the cottage.

Great location, just 50 paces from the beach, with a beach and gulf view from the cute little front porch. 100 paces from Gulf Dr and the trolley. A quiet little street even during Spring Break.

Although just a one bedroom, we had two adults and two teens sleep comfortably in the cottage, taking advantage of the fold out couch and an air mattress we brought with.

The BIG flat screen TV is a really nice perk, as is the garage full of beach toys, floats, chairs, umbrellas, and a one-man kayak.

The owner handles this property extremely well.

Unexpected Blessings

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in the Unexpected Blessings apartment. While it is small, it is very neat, clean and offers everything anyone should need for their stay. It is only a few steps from the beach and is convenient to restaurants or whatever you might need.

My only disappointment is that we could not have had a longer stay.

Map

Car: recommended

On the island you can shop, go antiquing, bike ride, golf, fish, sail, kayak, snorkel, dive, boat ride and much more. Or just walk the beautiful beaches hunting for a variety of shells. St. Armand Circle and Longboat Key are 10-20 minutes away. A very large outlet mall is less that 30 minutes away. Ice skating is next to the outlet. The world famous Skyway Bridge is visible from the island and only 15 minutes away. Professional baseball is minutes away with the Pittsburgh Pirates & Devil Rays. The Yankees winter training is in Tampa. Nearby, Orlando boasts Disney World, Epcot, animal Kingdom, Sea World and Universal Studios. Three of the top airports in the country are Sarasota, Tampa, and Orlando. Our guests come from all over the world and many from Florida. Most repeat with us year after year. I think you will see why!

Other Activities: shell hunting, jogging, kayaking, gift shops, discount outlet mall
