Overview

Ilexhurst Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, Convertible bed, 2 Baths and Dinette - sleeps 6

Need a full recharge during your beach vacation?

Try our two-bedroom condo on Anna Maria Island. Here, you’ll find the calm hush of island life without chain restaurants or towering hotels to block your view of the glittering, turquoise Gulf of Mexico. And thanks to three walls of windows, most of our condo’s rooms are treated to that view, which is better than photos can capture!

We took care to ensure our condo matches the understated, relaxed beach town vibe of Anna Maria Island. After a recent renovation, we’re ready to welcome you with cheerful, contemporary upgrades like new floors, countertops and furniture, and pops of Gulf-inspired color that make our place feel less “hotel” and more like “home.”

Spend the day lazing on the beach, which is just a one-minute walk from the condo across a quiet street (Holmes Beach access is located at 34th Street, and so are we!). You won’t have to rush to claim a slice of sand—the beach is often pleasantly uncrowded, even during peak months.

Then, back at the condo, plenty of evening amenities await, including a large heated pool with lounge chairs, TVs with DVD players in the unit for a family movie night, and a rooftop deck with a perfect vantage point for peeping brilliant sunsets. (The rooftop terrace and pool are shared with the building’s three other units, but are never crowded.)

A fully stocked kitchen makes whipping up a meal a breeze, and there’s plenty of space to serve it at our six-person dining table. Plus, there’s a bar with stools and a breakfast nook—both great spots to enjoy a stack of morning pancakes.

Want a place to sip a mug of coffee (or glass of wine before bed) in your PJs? The breezy lanai, attached to the master bedroom, is the perfect spot. There’s a private bath for the master, as well. A second bedroom sleeps up to three guests, with one twin bed and one queen.

The living area sofa pulls out into a couch to accommodate another guest. A total of six people can sleep here comfortably.

Please note: we have been managing this rental since October 2013. Any reviews previous to that date don’t reflect the current state of our condo, which is kept to our high standards.

We hope to see you soon—get in touch today to book your dates.

And good news! If your desired period is booked we also have another unit next door. It has a very similar feel and an identical layout. Look at our sister listing VRBO #217357/HomeAway #211902 for more inspiration!

About Tomas and Marie

Marie was an exchange student in Ohio over 30 years ago. She's visited USA several times per year ever since and considers it to be her second home country.

Tomas had never been to the US before visiting it with me, but he just loves the area!

Tomas and Marie purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tomas and Marie chose Holmes Beach

It is spacious and bright with a unique location and wonderful views. So close to both the beach and all the amenities of Anna Maria Island, while still in a very quiet neighborhood.

What makes this condo unique

There isn't a better located unit on AMI. You can walk to shopping as well as the beach. Its great to come off the beach and go to the pool or just enjoy what Anna Maria has to offer.

We also own the next-door unit, so you can rent both if you are two families traveling together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation this year at your condo. We've been vacationing on AMI for over 30 years but this year we especially loved our stay for many reasons.

The location of the condo is ieal with just a very short walk down a sandy beach road and there it is..the most beautiful beach ever, so close we could go bak and forth to pick up drinks for the beach or lunch in just minutes.

The condo itself is very clean, spacious and comfortable, a largebright kitchen well equiped with everything one needs to feel at home. The TV's have "millions" of channels which we enjoyed in the living room and bedroom.

Both bedrooms are roomy..the very large master bedroom has a "beachy" theme with an exceptionally comfortable king size bed.

We loved spending time in the sunroom which had a great view of the Gulf.

The pool area is pretty and well maintained with both shade area and sunning area..never busy when we were there. Many days w were the only one's at the pool..nice and private. The rooftop deck is especially great to watch sunsets..we took some beautiful photos.

Thank you for making sure our vacation was memorable.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year staying in Marie and Tomas's condo! The location is perfect! Steps to the beach and you can see the ocean from the large window in the living area. The condo always spotless and equipped with everything you will need. Always great communication with Marie and Tomas!! I am already looking at the calendar for my next trip! Love AMI!

We really enjoyed the large living room / dining room arrangement and the breakfast nook was a nice "hideaway" place where we were able to do some business via Skype without annoying others. Is on our return list.

family vacation time

  • 5 of 5

Every part of this vacation was made so easily from start to finish. It started with great communication from the owners who made the whole booking from check in/check out process easy. They communicated consistently and answered any questions promptly prior to our vacation and made several personal phone calls to put my mind at ease during the process. Upon arrival the condo was spotless clean with upgraded accommodations and a very homelike atmosphere. Very close and easy access to beach and it was great to have the nice pool when the weather didn't cooperate for the beach one day. We loved the place and look forward to coming back each year.

2nd Visit

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth visit to Anna Maria Island and our second time staying in one of your condos. It is our favorite place to stay! The proximity to the beach cannot be beat. I would nad have recommended both condos! There was plenty of room. The property is equipped with all necessities. Very clean. Excellent proximity to the beach, restaurants, groceries and activities. This year we took advantage of a kayak tour through Happy Paddler Kayak Tours. It was the best 3 hours spent! Beach Bistro is our favorite place to dine. Last but not least, the owner is extremely easy to work with. Always good communication through the entire process. We will definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: We always enjoy to have you as our guests, Amy and Jason! And thank you for reminding me that I need to put pics on our website from when Tomas and I went kayaking with Happy Paddler, it was so fun and informative. Shane knows his stuff! All the Best! Marie p.s. We love Beach Bistro too!

Tropical Sunset

  • 5 of 5

We were six people (three generations) staying there for a week, and were all really, really happy with everything the condo had to offer. The proximity to the wonderful, non-crowded, beach was great. Especially with kids, the need for "running errands" to the condo is quite frequent, and the short distance is therefor very valuable.

The condo had all appliances needed, and we appreciate the fast and easy communication with the owners.

If I was to mention something negative, it would be the, kind of far, distance to my home in Sweden... We would love to come back! Thanks for a great week!

Owner's Response: The distance to get to AMI from Sweden is long but sooo worth it, don't you think? And once you're staying in one of our units, there's hardly any distances at all!

The condo was large and clean. It had updated decor and was only a short walk to the beach. We also loved the pool. It was so relaxing sitting on the porch reading a good book.
