This cottage is located "on the beach" 3007 Avenue F, beautiful Holmes beach. It is the downstairs unit (1 of 2). The cottage is very comfortable and sleeps 4 comfortably with additional space for a pull-out. This quaint cottage is hidden away on a dead end street, away from it all yet close to shopping and restaurants.
It has a full shower/tub, kitchen with all that you need and a washer/dryer. It is very quaint and the grounds have beautiful exotic and tropical plants. You are only a few short steps to the beach which has the most beautiful blue water and sandy beaches.
There is a trolley that picks up throughout the day and evening one block away. The unit is centrally located between Cortez Beach and Anna Maria Island where there are shopping areas, the Ringling Brother's Museum, and many restaurants.
Come join us at Holmes Beach for the most beautiful sunset Florida has to offer!

These are older units (built in the 50's) and we are continually updating the units but it is the beach and can be very humid. We have house keepers come at the beginning and end of each guest to cleaned and change the linens. On high humidity days the doors may be a little tighter and on dry days they will be lose. Can't beat the ocean views and the sunsets....
We chose to buy this unit due to the fact it was located directly on the beach and it was a small condo unit of 2. It was also a short distance from where we live and allowed us to get out of the city and relax. Holmes Beach is absolutely beautiful all year round.
We love relaxing on the beach and watching the evening sunsets. Mornings are usually filled with walks on the beach and collecting shells. We also love taking the trolley to Anna Maria island for dinner and shopping.
Perfect place to relax , quitet . The cottage had everything you will need to make your stay perfect . The beach it is just at the touch of your hand . The only thing to be aware of is the fact that the beach it is not pet friendly . You can sit in your private sanded area with your pets but cannot go further than that . Still i had a great time and definetely i ll recommend this place to my friends .
We stayed for 10 days on the 1st floor unit which perfectly suited our needs. If the second floor is available it is far sunnier with a deck with waterview, but there is a six month tenant who is booking again for six months next year. The beach was beautiful and there is a private seating area which was great for sunsets. The only things missing were an ironing board ( I improvised) and the lounge chairs were not in great shape, but the price and location cannot be beat. The six month tenant above on 2nd floor was very friendly as were the next door neighbors. The owners, who own the house in front, were not around, but very responsive via text. The free shuttle has a stop nearby and the monkey bus, which works for tips, was great fun. We explored the north shore, cortez village, bridge street, longboat key and armands circle. I took several yoga classes on the beach. This location is close to everything, 30 minutes drive from Armands circle, from longboat key, from the movies in Bradenton. You can walk to walmart, to a beachfront breakfast or peaches diner, cvs, mr. Bones restaurant or the german restaurant. We will defintely return and would stay here again.
This property is in a great location. You have restaurants and a grocery store very close and at the end of the street you can hop on the Trolly and ride around the island. It's really nice also that you walk out the door and it's just a short walk out to the beach. The house is spacious, there was plenty of room for our family of 4. But there are some things that could use some work. The beds are very uncomfortable but it could be an easy fix with a decent mattress pad put on top. The pillows are really thin and there were not enough of them. I had one child that didn't get a pillow and used a rolled up towel. This was also an instance where I'm glad my children travel with blankets because they needed them. There are things in the house that could use some updating but overall the place is clean.
We had a wonderful time. The unit was clean and had everything we needed. Close to restaurants, shops and of course right on the beach. Would definitely recommend it.
The location right on the beach is perfection but the unit needs some serious updating. The beds are horrible, linens and towels reminded me of stuff that should be donated to goodwill. It is old and not well maintained. The air conditioner had issues during our stay but to their credit the owner reimbursed us for 2 days. They are super nice people and I think they are slowly updating so if that kind of stuff doesn't bother you then by all means rent this unit. The location right on the beach makes it worth it!!! And they allow pets!!!
I almost don't want to write this review because I want my island escape to remain a secret! Pelican Perch was exactly as it was advertised. This rental was perfectly located on Holmes Beach. Easy to get to any of the attractions and activities. I wanted a quiet, true Florida beach vacation. Even on a busy Memorial Day weekend I felt as if I had my own private beach! The unit was clean and most everything one needed was provided such as beach towels, chairs etc. We had no problem with shower water temp as a previous reviewer mentioned nor a smell in the unit other than what one would expect from anything on a beach! AC worked perfectly and there was no dripping from any of the units. Kitchen was well stocked and it was nice to have a washer/dryer in the unit. The owner checked in to make sure all was well and it was. I especially loved that I walked out our door directly onto the sand path onto the beach. The only negative for us was the bed in the master bedroom...a new mattress and box springs would be nice. If you are looking for a no frills beach vacation rental Pelican Perch is the place to be.
We have a free trolley 2 blocks away - runs every 15 minutes taking you south towards Cortez Blvd. or North to Ana Maria Island - many shops and restaurants along the way - beautiful way to just get out and see the area. In walking distance we have Publix Grocery Store, Walgreens, Bank, Ace Hardware and several eating areas.....it is a place that you really don't need a vehicle - Being native Floridians we have traveled all over Florida and the beaches - swimming, fishing, etc. This area is one of the most beautiful in our opinion.
