Holmes Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4 )

This elegant 2 bedroom Townhouse has 1.5 baths is located at 118 52nd. St. in Holmes Beach west of Gulf Dr. Its location is within walking distance to free transportation all around the island, quality eating establishments, shopping and was just a very short walk to the beach. The townhouse has a front and back patio with a charcoal grill. A washer and dryer are provided. This unit has high speed internet with free domestic long distance calling. This townhouse is wonderful and affordable property on a quiet street 100 yards from the beach.

For the boater/fisherman: fishing piers, excursion boats, boat rentals and charter boats are available. Rent a jet ski or kayak, go for a parasail ride or scuba dive - there are so many options! Marinas are located around the island or bring your own boat - ramps are conveniently located and the fishing's great!

For the beach goer: Anna Maria is seven miles long and offers peaceful, white sand beaches running the length of the island. Take a walk, find some shells, get some sun or just relax on our beaches; they're spectacular.

For the explorer: From the north end of Anna Maria to the south tip of Bradenton Beach, treasures are to be found on our beautiful island. Explore the shell-lined shores on the beach or bird-watch over the bay. Stroll our island to your heart's content or rent a bike and take advantage of our many bike paths.

For the shopper: Anna Maria offers many different kinds of quaint beach shops, gift and dress shops. No car required - our free island trolley can easily transport you all over the island! For more 'extensive' shopping, two outlet malls are located by I-75.

For the whole family: Theme parks are located within two hours from Anna Maria. Spend a day at Disney World, Busch Gardens, Cypress Gardens, Mote Marine or Sarasota Jungle Gardens - they're too numerous to list! Museums, botanical gardens, state parks abound and make great day trips. During February and March, see the Pittsburgh Pirates play at McKechnie Fields in Bradenton.

For the golfer: The Manatee and Sarasota area offers close to 50 courses - from executive par threes to challenging championship 18 hole courses.

We could go on and on - the beauty of Anna Maria Island has to be seen to be appreciated. The recreational activities are too numerous to list and the weather is too fantastic to believe! Come see for yourself!

Driving Directions

Arriving from the north or south on Interstate 75, take Exit 220, heading west on State Road 64 into Bradenton. SR-64, also called Manatee Avenue, will take you to the Anna Maria Island Beaches. After crossing the drawbridge, turn left at East Bay Drive. Head south approximately one half mile to Island Vacation Properties. We'll be on your left at the corner of 30th Street and Gulf Drive. Look for the big blue sign!

Perfect place for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a reasonably priced holiday let for a family of four that was close to great beaches and that is what we got and more! From our initial booking, Chuck the owner, was very helpful and replied to all enquiries immediately. Arrival was smooth and efficient followed up by a courtesy call from Chuck to check all was well. The townhouse is deceptively more spacious inside with plenty of room for four adults. It is really well equipped, clean and nicely decorated throughout with a modern bathroom and kitchen. The two bedrooms were large and roomy, clean and comfortable. The location is just perfect on the island, very close to the beach and local shops, the trolley bus route runs close by which we hopped on regularly to get to the city pier. When we did have one minor problem with the tumbler dryer it was sorted straight away. Having walked around the island and its beaches we were delighted to find that our local beach on 52nd Street was simply outstanding- quiet, clean and had miles of soft white sand! We had an idyllic 23 nights stay in the town house and will definitely stay here again when we return to Anna Maria Island.

Beautiful island - convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The unit is comfortable and has all

The amenities you need. It's a quick walk to the beach and has some convenience shopping behind it. A larger market is a few minutes drive.

Great place and location ! Beach is a short walk in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

The owner, Chuck, takes pride in this condo and loves the AMI area as much as we do. He answers the phone and responds to any questions or requests quickly. The unit has an upgraded kitchen and bathrooms and nice furniture. The walk to the beach is short and safe (no major road crossings). If you need anything the major stores are only a trolley ride away. There is also a shopping center you can walk to with shops, restaurants, hardware store and post office. We definitely would stay here again !

Clean, spacious, comfortable vacation home -- great location with easy beach access!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas week at Chuck's townhouse. It was great! The house is on a quiet but convenient street, with the trolley stop right around the corner, and the beach just a minute's walk away -- no other streets to cross. The house is spacious, comfortable, well equipped and comes with all the mod cons. Check-in and check-out were super-easy, and our damage deposit was returned promptly. We had a wonderful vacation and would definitely stay at Chuck's house again, or recommend it to loved ones.

Clean, helpful, responsive, good for families

  • 5 of 5

We are very satisfied with our five-day stay at the property. The rooms and amenities were perfect for our family of 4 (two children ages 6 and 1), and it was essential that we find something both affordable and walking distance from the beach. The neighbors were friendly and helpful, not only for insider tips on things to do around the island, but also when we had some car trouble. Chuck was quick to respond and helpful whenever we contacted him.

The island was great - we could take the tram everywhere, and we're only disappointed we didn't have time to do everything. Beaches, of course, were great.

We recommend the property, and of course, we would, of course, come back and do it all again.

Incredible location, steps from the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a lovely visit to this condo over Thanksgiving week - it was our 3rd trip to the island, and by far the best location for beach access. Owner Chuck was kind to make sure a neighbor turned the lights were on so we were able to arrive safely despite our flight delay we had us arriving in the dark of night. The condo was well-outfitted for our stay, very clean and generally well-maintained. The excellence of the location less than half a block to the beach cannot be overstated. It made heading out for a quick morning walk or a sunset stroll (which we did every day) feel seamless. It's location right in the center of Holmes Beach also made walking to local shops a breeze. Best Thanksgiving ever!
