About Dan and Kay Kay

My wife and I have been married 28 years and have 4 boys now ages 14 to 21 and a chocolate Lab (Coco). Being a native 'Floridian', it was natural to return to the Island after College at LSU. My wife is from Baton Rouge, LA and enjoys living and raising our family on the Island as it has so much to offer. We travel often and enjoy fishing, camping, hunting and 4 wheeling.

Dan and Kay Kay purchased this house in 2010

Why Dan and Kay Kay chose Holmes Beach

The property is near our home and provides us the opportunity to share the Island with family and friends near and far.

What makes this house unique

This property is located in the heart of the Island. Whether you're in the mood for burgers on the beach or fine dining, all is conveniently located. The free trolley stops at the corner and traverses the entire Island including Longboat Key.

Beachy Luxury

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this place - steps away from the beach - convenient trolley - all the beach toys/chairs/towels you need. The cottage is expertly decorated and no detail is left out! We will definitely be back!

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and Anna Maria Island were perfect. The cottage is clean, well furnished and maintained. The décor is very Florida and always reminds you where you are! The Florida themed library had some great books for beach reading and passing leisure time. The cottage is perfectly located for easy walking access to the beach and riding bikes to the shops, groceries and other attractions. We barely left the island or used our car in the 2 months we were there. Lots of great restaurants but especially enjoyed the Ugly Grouper and the Rod & Reel Pier where we also spent time fishing for sheepshead and watching the dolphins. Our hosts were very friendly, accommodating and responsive. We are hoping to be back next year for more of the same!

Not worth the money!!

  • 2 of 5

Of all the vrbo places we have stayed, this one was very disappointing. The house had a cold feeling, very minimalistic furnishings. Hard to find instructions on what to do and where to go. We wanted to rent a movie, however there isn't a DVD player, minimal paper supplies, no pool, location ok not great. Bathroom was extremely small. On a positive note, has a cute enclosed patio and was very clean. We did not feel this was a good choice for the price we paid. I would definitely recommend ppl look at other option before choosing this one.

Really good!

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the Cottage. Can't say enough about how cozy it is and very comfortable. Everything you need to make your visit perfect.

Kay Kay and Dan are great owners and make you feel right at home. Considering other properties offering rents at ridiculous prices, this one is a veritable bargain.

The perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly greeted by Dan and Kay Kay who explained everything we needed to know about the property and the island.

The property was very clean and fully equipped with everything that we might need. It is spacious, bright and airy, and decorated with beautiful 'beach' touches making it a perfect beach house.

The house is in a brilliant location on the island. It is just a couple of minutes walk from the beach and about a 20 minute walk from the city pier. We only used our car to go to the supermarket! Otherwise we walked or hopped on the free trolley.

Overall, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at this property and would book again if we are lucky enough to go back to AMI!
