Why Mark Gibbs chose Holmes Beach

We chose to buy this 2 unit duplex to provide people the opportunity to experience the life of a true islander. You can get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life and enjoy the peace and tranquility the island has to offer. No walking experience is greater than enjoying the sites along the Gulf of Mexico.

Perfect little getaway cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in this little home on Anna Maria Island! The house was cozy and well equipped, everything you need in the kitchen and tons of beach items available for use in the shed. We would definitely stay again!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely small cottage set on quite street yet near enough to the main thoroughfares to make the whole island easily accessible. I had only a short stay this time (3 days over the July 4th holiday) but it was well worth the drive to get there. Cozy and comfortable with good amenities. There is plenty to do on the island with many beaches on the Gulf and Bay sides and a large number of fine restaurants that can fit into anyone's budget near to the cottage. The communities on the island are quaint and picturesque and each has a number of small shopping centers with a good choice of goods. The owner, while living out of state, is easily accessible by phone and email and makes every effort to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Enjoyed the time there and will look forward to renting this vacation spot again.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything it said it was and more. This was a perfect location to the beach and the trolley. My family loved our time here. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. The owner was very nice and responsive to any questions we had.

Perfect Holmes Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

My 93 year old mother and I spent a long weekend in Mark's perfectly appointed bungalow. The place was so clean and had everything we could ask for. The location to the beach as well as to the municipal beach with handicapped parking was great. Grocery store and a variety of restaurants was also nice. Mark was extremely responsive throughout the process and everything was exactly as described. If my travels take me back to Anna Maria Island/Holmes Beach, I'll definitely stay on Avenue B!
