Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Pool. Private retreat in lush garden setting. Quiet street

Old Florida charm in a completely remodeled house with gourmet kitchen. Only 1 1/2 short blocks to an uncrowded beach. Ours is a 2 bedroom/2 bath home which sleeps 5. It is the larger 1/2 of a duplex with its' own solar heated saltwater pool, 2 waterfalls and a lush tropical landscape... all in a very private backyard. The house also has a garage which divides the duplex and is exclusively for use by our guests.

Anna Maria Island is known for its beautiful sugar white sand beaches. A short walk from the house, down a shaded lane brings you to a wide and uncrowded beach. Beach chairs, towels, a cooler, umbrella and beach cart all are provided for use by our guests.

After a day at the beach, fishing off the local piers or visiting the quaint shops on the island, return home to our tropical backyard oasis to relax around the pool. No need to eat out all the time, you can prepare meals at home in our well equipped kitchen and dine alfresco in our private and shaded yard. Anna Maria Island and neighboring areas also have many fine restaurants and dining is always casual.

About David Moutner

Your hosts, Kathy and David. For over 20 years we have rented beach houses on the Atlantic coast, in the Caribbean, the Keys and Gulf coast of Florida with our two daughters. When we visited Anna Maria a few years ago, we decided here was the place to have a retreat of our own. We know what a family needs to be comfortable in a vacation home and we make every effort to ensure that you will enjoy your stay with us, as much as we enjoy staying here ourselves. We look forward to sharing our home with you!

David Moutner purchased this house in 2010

Why David Moutner chose Anna Maria Island

We are located on a quiet street, a short drive to the town center of Holmes Beach and a 10 minute walk to the quaint shops and restaurants in the town of Anna Maria. Approximately half the houses on our street are occupied by year round residents and about half are vacation rentals.

In addition to being a quiet area, our yard is completely enclosed and surrounded by lush landscaping making for a very private setting.

The best reason to stay with us is that we equip the house to be our second home, not a bare bones vacation rental. Bring a few bathing suits and a toothbrush... that's all you'll need when you stay with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wanted to say thank you again for the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful home this past week. It was very comfortable and we felt very secure. The master bedroom and pool were such a santuary for me this week. And the short jaunt to the beach down White Ave was great. Will be in touch again for any planned trips to AMI.

Amazing oasis - heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

What can we say... this was so perfect. This was the best vacation I've had since my honeymoon in Aruba.

My wife, 2 year old daughter, and I stayed here for a week in October 2016. It was one of the best weeks ever. The house was clean, neat, and peaceful. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in, both bathrooms were clean and spacious. The bedrooms were quiet and comfortable. Ceiling fans in all the rooms added to the comfort level.

The backyard was incredible. The wall and privacy fence, nicely screened by tropical landscaping, make it feel as if you are swimming in a secluded tropical pool. The two waterfalls into the pool are a delightful element are added much to the ambiance. The pool itself was one of the most pleasant I've ever been in - warm, and inviting. I've never swum in a saltwater pool before, and it was fantastic. The pool was the perfect size for a family fun.

Access to the beach was a short walk off Beach Ave. The beach was wonderful - never crowded, covered with shells for us to hunt. We went during the day, and then again after dinner to watch the sunset. Just be careful when you walk home along Gulf Dr - there is a narrow shoulder and the crosswalks aren't well lit.

There were pool floats, towels, beach umbrellas, snorkels, a beach wagon, bicycles, a medium cooler, and beach toys in the garage. There was a highchair, and we left behind a toddler potty if anyone cares to use it.

The owner David was very friendly and responsive as well.

Plan on having to purchase most staples - we needed toilet paper and garbage bags beyond the normal perishables you might expect. (Maybe that's normal? In our limited rental experience, those things have been provided.) Publix is a short distance away, and has just about everything you will need.

Honestly the only negative of any significance is that we had to leave. If we could move in here permanently, we would. Simply put, this week exceeded our expectations.

Island Retreat Home - Greg & carol

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience we had staying at this beautiful island and home. It was so comfortable staying in this clean, well maintained property that had the convenience of a private pool and beautiful beach just a short walk away. The owners had thought out everything needed for a fun easy stay at their island home. So many conveniences like gas grill, bikes, beach equipment (chairs, umbrella, wagon, etc.), kitchen appliances and utensils, washer/dryer and fans in every room. It was so comfortable and easy staying at their lovely home on this wonderful island. We loved it so much we booked a stay immediately for next year. Thanks David and Kathy for the welcome wine ... we loved that thoughtfulness so much as well as the wine!

Perfect house on a perfect Island

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this house for a week and we enjoyed everything about it. The back of the house where the pool is like a private oasis. The pool was perfect after a day at the beach which was 5-7 min walk. House is well equipped with pretty much anything and everything you can think of. Location is fantastic, house is beautiful and very modern and we will be back. Reviews do not lie about this property. House has a grill and we used it almost everyday which was a nice touch.Thanks David for having us stay at the house!

Perfect stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect and very relaxing stay for 3,5 weeks in this beautiful house. It was everything there which we needed. As we had a 8 month baby with us we did not go out for dinner very often but enjoyed to eat in the house which was very comfortable with the fully equipped kitchen. We used the gas grill almost every day.

We loved the pool and the nice patio. A lot of beachgear and a beach wagon is available which is really helpful. Washer and dryer are really helpful! There were also lots of towels.

David is an excellent landlord. He was very helpful in every situation and he takes very good care of the house. He answered every question within minutes.

The beach is only 5 minutes walking distance. We went to the famous Sandbar one day for Lunch. The location is quite nice but the food is only average. We loved to eat at The Blue Marlin Grill and at Starfish Company in Cortez. We enjoyed the nice beaches all over the island and the playgrounds.

The neighborhood is nice and the neighbors are really friendly.

It was just the perfect stay and we are looking forward to coming back to "our" house! Thank you David and Karen for sharing it with us!

Another great visit

  • 5 of 5

We had another great January on AMI. the front door is a beautifully set up home. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We brought our kayaks with us and used them frequently. Our favorite place to kayak is the Robinson preserve. Great restaurants. Our favorites are the sandbar, the island grill and the waterfront. Easy walk to the spectacular beach. The free trolley is a wonderful perk. We walk as far as we want, have lunch then take the trolley back home. Sitting on the porch with coffee or in the tropical backyard with wine is awesome. It was a little to cool when we went to use the pool even though it is heated. I highly recommend the front porch as a vacation destination. David is great and always available to answer your questions if you need him.
