Self-employed energy business owner/manager, recently retired. My husband Dan and I purchased this beautiful home away from home in 2009 and plan to rent while we are not able to yet fully live in this Awesome Estate. We are certain you will love our home as much as we do!

TONYA SPITZER purchased this House in 2009

Why TONYA SPITZER chose Holmes Beach

From the very first visit we loved this island! The Island is not commercialized like other Islands and has lots to see & do. White silky sugar sandy beaches are awesome with shells and sand dollars galore!

What makes this House unique

Perfect location on the island yet such a private retreat. A chance to see a sunrise every day! Short 5 minutes to the beach. A block to the Library and plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. See the map for location.

                                                              Although there are some maintenance issues that need to be addressed on the property - they did not affect our stay or the comfort of this home. It is very well appointed but be prepared to bring your own provisions (shampoo-soap-TP-paper towels etc). Property is clean and offers plenty of towels (including beach towels). Furniture is "island style" and comfortable. Beds are comfortable and kitchen has everything you need to prepare the most gourmet meal and there is a large gas grill on the screened patio. The spa/pool is just the right size for relaxing at any hour. There were 6 of us and we had a fantastic time. Saw Dolphins right outside our deck, the pelicans and egrets visited daily. You are within walking distance of shops-restaurants-library-boat rental and golf car rental. We rented a car and traveled the island with ease. Rented a deck boat for a day and saw Manatees - floated up to a waterfront restaurant and again saw schools of Dolphins. We WOULD certainly recommend this property - if at first you are unable to contact the Spitzers keep trying - it's worth the effort.

                                                              Great location, beautiful views!

                                                              This was our second time to stay at the Pesky Pelican. Owners are great to work with and the house/guest house was perfect for 3 families, 11 total. There is more than enough room for all of us. The sunrises are amazing and relaxing on the deck all day watching the bay can't be beat. Location is convenient for going anywhere on the Island. Thank you for another great year!

                                                              Beautiful setting on the bay

                                                              There were many great things about this rental ... being right on the water, the pool inside a spacious screened-in porch, separate quarters over the garage, good location, and more. However, I became frustrated with not having my emails answered and telephone calls (when I left messages) not being returned. Also, we left the place in perfect condition but did not receive the $500 deposit until Feb. 11, 2017 -- 42 days after our check-out, and that was only after I called twice to ask for our deposit to be returned. Sorry to complain, because it really is a nice place to stay. The carpets need to be replaced ... they were quite dirty in some areas. We paid a high rent for Christmas week, and I guess when you spend that much money, you have high expectations.

                                                              First Visit to Ana Maria Island - April 2016

                                                              This property easily accommodated our party of 10 for a week vacation without feeling cramped. Spacious well decorated house with a large deck area overlooking the bay. The house also has all of the needed amenities and is close to shopping and the beach. House was clean upon our arrival and owner response to our needs. We would definitely rent again and would recommend to friends.

                                                              Wonderful Waterfont Home on Tampa Bay

                                                              Thank you Tanya and Dan. We had the time of our lives! This is a well maintained home which sits on the Bay, and the views are amazing. Sunrise and sunset are spectacular!You can enjoy the back deck, fish, enjoy the jacuzzi pool and relax. The birds are just wonderful and they love to visit. The dolphins are always around and yes, we did see a manatee. The home has chairs, fishing poles and bikes. Be sure to wear a helmet and watch out for the drivers they can get somewhat crazy. You can take the trolley or call for the monkey bus. There are wonderful restaurants and bars. Great Island lots of fun.

                                                              The home is very cozy and well stocked. We enjoyed our vacation and we look forward to coming back. This is a delightful home, and you will not be disappointed!
