Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

NEW House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

At 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, this is one of the best rentals on Anna Maria Island. Straight down the road 1 block to the beach, and around the corner to restaurants, pubs & stores. Featuring a huge heated pool to relax in after your busy day, Conch Out Beach House is a luxurious and welcome retreat in the perfect location on Anna Maria Island. This Bungalow has been fully renovated and no expense is being spared. The 5 Flat screen TV’s, Sonos multiroom audiosystem,, stainless steel appliances, beautiful 'wood' tile floors, granite counter tops, free phone/cable/wireless Internet, and a massive outdoor covered cabana with big screen T.V. & patio with huge sectional will exceed the expectations of even the most discerning vacationers and critics. (2 Master Suites with en-suites featuring top of the line King sized beds, 1 Room with a queen sized bed and the kids room featuring 2 incredible built-in bunks that sleep 4 (4 Twins). (Please note that one bunk bed is very high - it is caged in but not for the faint of heart!)

After 9 trips to Anna Maria Island my wife and I decided that it was time to commit to this beach paradise and buy a home. Years of enjoying our days on the perfect beaches, lunches on the pier, sunset champagnes with phenomenal fine dining and great nights socializing with the locals made this comfy beach town a part of us. And as our family has grown we wanted a place where we could relax, rejuvenate and that we could explore with our friends and kids.

Over the past few years we have purchased 3 homes.

We hope that you will find our little piece of paradise as welcoming as we do.

About Emma

We are a lucky Swiss couple who stumbled across Anna Maria Island around 2009 have visited every year since. The casual charm and laid back “Old Florida” feel immediately appealed to us as a place where we could come and remove ourselves from the hectic pace and blustery winters of the big city and settle in with the locals for some fun in the sun. Of course, the powdery white sand beaches, phenomenal sunsets, parks, restaurants, sailing, golf, concerts and pubs all helped to make the decision to buy the “Conch Out Beach House” that much easier!

Emma purchased this house in 2014

Why Emma chose Anna Maria Island

The Beach, the Backyard and the Bungalow.

This is our 3rd home on Anna Maria and we were thrilled when we found this location and realized what we could build. It is the culmination of years of planning, saving and creating and we are thrilled to be able to share it with others as part of their vacation memories.

Anna Maria Island possesses 'Old Florida' charm and has all the amenities of the larger, over developed and more crowded islands. Perfect powder-white sand beaches run the length of its West coast with the stunning blues of the Gulf of Mexico constantly lapping at its shores. The Free trolley service will take you virtually anywhere on the island. Dozens of great restaurants, bars and shopping experiences are all right on your doorstep.

What makes this house unique

Because this is a bungalow it is accessible for all ages. Having 2 small children we wanted a home where they could run around without worrying about stairs or not being able to see what they were up to. We also recognize that many 'snow birds' appreciate the convenience of staying in a ground level home. It is a luxury that is slowly disappearing as 2-storey homes take over the rental market.

The interior finishing's are all top of the line. You will appreciate the luxe bedding and linens and well stocked kitchen. The mattresses are top of the line. We can promise sweet dreams.

Another HUGE benefit of this property is the backyard - at 3 times the size of our last home this yard is truly a tropical paradise. The pool is one of the largest on the island and features a hot tub, water fall and seating area (positioned to see the T.V. in the cabana ). The cabana houses a lounge area with top of the line resin wicker furniture.

We finally have our 'dream house'. Enjoy!

Anna Maria Island is a haven for relaxing. We have tried to make everything available that you might possibly need so that you can simply enjoy yourselves, but if it's not there, then it is most likely just around the corner. Enjoy the sand, sun, sitting by the pool or on the beach or even doing some work (it so often crops up) but mostly do just what you want in a great environment.

Gorgeous Pool!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here the first week of August 2016. There was 3 couples and 3 kids ages 3,5 and 10. The house is so modern and decorated beautifully with a nicely stocked kitchen and comfortable beds like so many other reviewers stated. The pool area is perfect. It has a ledge that is 1/2 foot deep that the younger kids loved to play on and the table in the pool was perfect place to have drinks and watch the Olympics that were on while we were there. Huge basket of beach towels for anyone to use. The walk to the beach was only 2 blocks and there are lots of sand toys, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, bikes, etc. 7 of us could fit around the big table for meals and the 2 little ones loved their special table off by themselves.

But we did have a couple of minor issues and one not so minor issue . . .

1. The water heater broke the first day we were there and it took us a couple of days to compare notes and realize that all of us were taking lukewarm showers. The pipes run underground so close to the surface that the water was semi-heated since it was August not ice cold water. Emma tried her absolute best to get service men out there quickly but it was a tank-less water heater and needed both a plumber and electrician to come out. So there was a lot back and forth between the two on the order things needed to be done and we were a lot more involved than we wanted to be on our vacation. It did not get fixed till Thursday (we arrived Saturday prior). We did get compensation but it took a month.

2. The kid's room (with the bunk beds) has a door that leads outside. Of course, all the kids tried to open it and the youngest one ended up sleeping with parents for the week because of the door. I completely missed that detail in the pictures so just be aware.

3. The master bedrooms do not have locks and open directly out into the living room. Our kids loved to open our door when we were getting dressed.

4. One of the master bedrooms has a port hole window looking directly out to the street that does not have any window treatment over it. We ended up just stuffing a blanket in the window to block it.

5. If the waterfall is running in the pool, the pool is not filtering. The waterfall was so pretty and fun to play under but on the Friday of our stay the pool company came by for a check and told us the pool had not been filtering all week. If water overflowing from hot tube, then water is being filtered.

We had the best time at this georgeous home. All the amenities for indoor fun and outdoor family time. The house location was perfect for a quick stroll to the beach and the pool and backyard area helped us to create memories with family and our furry friends.We would recommend this property 100 percent and will be booking here next year. Thanks for a great week 😊

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent two weeks at this beautiful house and want to go back immediately! We spent many spring breaks on Anna Maria when our children were young, and we were so happy to find the island just as beautiful as it was back then. This trip included our adult children and two of our grandchildren (ages 2 1/2 and 4 1/2). This was the perfect house for many reasons...first of all, the backyard is just beautiful. The pool has the shallow shelf for the young ones and a waterfall for them to swim under. It is very private with a covered cabana area with a tv and fridge to keep your drinks in so no one has to run in and out of the house to get a cold beverage. There is also an outdoor heated shower to rinse off the sand from the beach. The streets in this area all deadend at the beach, so you simply load up the beach wagon with the beach chairs and toys (in garage) and take a short two block walk to the beach. And the beaches are absolutely amazing with beautiful sunsets each night! The house has pretty much everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The beds are wonderful and there are plenty of towels provided. We also loved having the large washer and dryer. The owner was very responsive with any issues or questions we had about the house and area. This house has the perfect layout for a large group with a completely open kitchen/dining/family room and split bedroom wings. One of the things I really loved about the house is that there wasn't a stair anywhere....and the flooring is a wonderful option for a rental as it's not slippery for the little feet, even when wet! We loved our vacation here!

Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to start. Anna Maria Island is an absolutely wonderful destination. The island is beautiful, friendly, casual and quaint. Restaurants, shopping and the very best beaches in the world! What made our vacation one of the best we have ever had though is this beautiful home. The house was very clean and has everything you need - we stayed for 3 weeks and did not want to leave! The pool is heated and salt water. The cabana with the television is a great gathering place. The backyard is fully fenced and very private which was great for our two dogs that travelled with us. The beach is literally steps away - one block. Emma was very accommodating with any needs we had. One of the televisions went out during our stay. One phone call to Emma and the television was replaced that very evening by their very friendly maintenance man John. We were very impressed! We will be returning next year!

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 glorious days here in August with our three teens. The home is exactly as pictured. It is beautifully furnished. Beds are comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked. Layout worked well with a central living room/dining room/kitchen hub and the bedrooms off of that. The master shower is nothing short of amazing - a huge shower with more water pressure than we'd ever experienced before. We'd go back just for that! The pool and cabana are wonderful. The location was perfect - just 2 blocks to an amazing beach. We walked to the beach every night to watch the amazing sunsets. The neighborhood is quiet. Highly recommend renting a golf cart and foregoing a car for your stay. We trolled around every day in our golf cart. The Donut Experiment and Poppo's Taqueria are not to be missed - they were favorite places to eat. The owners were very responsive to our one minor issue (a towel rod fell off a wall). I would rate it 6 stars if I could. We absolutely loved everything about our stay.
