About Phil Van Der Werff

My wife and I have 3 growing boys who all love anything to do with water and sunshine. We live in Michigan, and when there is snow on the ground, we wish we lived in Florida! Our goal is to retire here some day, and in the mean time, continue to build lasting memories through vacations at Anna Maria Island for our children as they grow up.

Phil Van Der Werff purchased this condo in 2005

Why Phil Van Der Werff chose Holmes Beach

We purchased this condo after vacationing in the area and falling in love with Anna Maria Island. Some of the things we love about the island: the casual atmosphere, i.e. tee-shirts, shorts and flip-flops, eating out at the many award winning restaurants, riding the free trolley any place on the Island, walking and playing on the white sandy beaches, watching incredible sunsets, swimming in the pool or the ocean, hunting for geckos and fishing off the piers.

Guestbook Comment

We stayed at the condo and totally enjoyed the experience. The lovely heated pool, the white sandy beach,lovely condo well supplied, and great restaurants nearby was perfect. We also liked the lanai overlooking the pool. The free trolley rides were so handy to go places on the island. What a place to have a vacation get-a-way!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo! The unit was very clean and had everything needed for a perfect Florida vacation. The beach and pool were terrific and the owner was extremely helpful. We could not have asked for better accomodations for our trip. We would highly recommend this condo.

What a great week we had here! Even when not at the nearby beach or pool, the beautiful interior decor of the condo still reminds you that you are on an island vacation. The indoor toys as well as the pool/beach toys were fun for our 6 and 8 yr old boys and thus allowed more down-time for my husband and me. We had all our meals on the screened lanai overlooking the pool - that's vacation! .

The owners were so helpful with answering our questions about the condo and the island before we arrived, recommending some of their favorite restaurants and activities.
