Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Old Florida charm in a completely remodeled house 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 house with exclusive use of the solar heated saltwater pool in the privately fenced backyard. A garage separating both units is also exclusively for 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.

Some of the other special features of the house are:

- Solar heated saltwater pool

- Beautiful landscaping front and back

- Stone pavers in the side and backyard for expanded outdoor living space

- Fully equipped and remodeled kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances

- Tile floors throughout

- Remodeled bathrooms with tiled shower/bath areas & granite counter tops

- One and a half short blocks to the beach

- Walking distance to the quaint shops of Anna Maria

- WiFi Internet

- Washer and Dryer

- 2 bicycles for guest use

Anna Maria Island is only 1 hour south of the Tampa Int’l Airport and Busch Gardens Theme Park. It is an easy 2 hour drive to from Disney & Epcot and 20 minutes north of Sarasota. With beautiful white sandy beaches and no crowds, this is the perfect place for families to unwind and relax.

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.

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.

Perfect even when it's raining!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home inside and out. The inside is very clean, nicely decorated for an island feel, and very comfy. The landscaping is amazing surrounding the salt water pool with waterfalls and the paver stone patio. We used the gas grill almost every evening for dinner. Even though it rained every day, and sometimes all day, we found the back patio and pool to be the place to be.

Second time and absolutely love it!

  • 5 of 5

You will not find a better home in beautiful Anna Maria! Walking distance to the beach and your own private pool. There is nothing you need to bring since the house is completely stocked with everything you can even think of. This is our second time there with our dogs and we will definitely be back. The house is completely renovated and spotless. So peaceful and relaxing!

Stunning Vacation Home! Five stars all around

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two small children, family dog, and I just returned from a wonderful week long stay at Front Porch. This house is beautifully decorated, meticulously cleaned and maintained and the pool area was a dream with it's gorgeous layout and landscaping. David and his wife have a great attention to detail providing a lot of "extras" to ensure that you are comfortable and have everything and more that you need for your stay. The kitchen was well stocked and the large closets and garage space provide plenty of room to keep your things put away and out of the floor. We were more than impressed with this home and it's amenities.
