About Anita Eldridge

Two best friends Ron & Scott purchased this home and completely 'gutted'it and remodeled it, so everything in the home is new. Scott & Ron have been friends since middle school and both were raised in Bradenton. Scott's wife Anita is the one who does the renting and cleaning.

Anita Eldridge purchased this house in 2008

Why Anita Eldridge chose Holmes Beach

We choose to buy this home because it is within driving distance to our home and if guests need anything, we are only 20 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

The best part of this house is everything is new and very well decorated and clean. With it being such a short distance to the beach it is ideal for families with children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say that the whole family had a lovely time at "The Beach Escape". Our son Ryan (2 1/2) went swimming in the pool everyday. We are already planning our trip for next year. Thanks Again

A Hidden Jewel

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house immaculately clean and steps away from the beautiful gulf. Anita was very helpful and responded to my emails immediately as well as phone calls.

We had everything you could possibly want when staying so far from home.

Thank you Anita and Scott for letting us stay at your beautiful home. We will definitely will visit it again.

From the moment we arrived Anita and Scott were doing their best to be accommodating and friendly. We were able to leave our bags and walk out to the beach and eat lunch while they finished preparing the house. (We arrived several hours before checkin) The house was clean and welcoming, the kitchen was filled with everything that we needed for our stay and the pool was great! The location was perfect and I can't think of anything that we needed or wanted that wasn't provided. Anita even checked in with us to make sure everything was going well. Thank you so much for everything! We will be back!!!

Fantastic Find at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting along the Florida Gulf Coast for 15 years. This is the best overall rental! It is close to a pristine beach that is not overcrowded. There are beach towels, chairs, toys and carts to tote it all to the water's edge. The house is also extremely well stocked with all the necessities. It was nice to be able to wash a load of towels, do dishes and clean up a bit without having to buy anything. The kitchen had everything we needed for our week stay. Anita is extremely attentive, kind and quick to respond. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on AMI @ the Beautiful Beach Escape. (August 12-19). Thanks Anita & Scott!

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time staying at Anita and Scott's in Holmes Beach. This was a family wife and I, our three adult kids, their partners and pets. The house and location provided the backdrop for terrific times and memories. The house checked off all the boxes for us...on Anna Maria, nice pool, easy access to beach. Beach was beautiful and not too crowded. The house was clean , comfortable and had everything that we needed. The icing on the cake was Anita's attentiveness and concern that everything go well for us. You can't make up for her personal touch! There was a tropical storm during our week and Anita checked in on us to make sure we were fairing okay. Couldn't have asked for a better week in a better location. Hope we get to go back next year!

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Do not this home! We have nothing to complain about, it was all we dreamed of and more. This home only requires that you bring clothes and food, everything else is there waiting on you. The walk to the beach is perfect (no roads to cross). The owners Scott and Anita go above and beyond to make your week a week to remember. We are already booking again for next year! Missing AMI already☀️
