About Larry Gardner

We are a young couple in our 40's. We have 3 grown kids and 8 grand-kids. We love everything outdoors and that is why we love Anna Maria Island. We would love to share our place in Paradise with you.

We like to make our guest fill right at home.

Why Larry Gardner chose Holmes Beach

It is right in the middle of the Island and walking distance to Restaurants and shops, there is also a free trolley that goes the length of the island with a stop in front of the condo. It is only steps from the white sand beach.

What makes this condo unique

Unlike similar sunset celebrations in Florida tourist meccas such as Key West, there are no rowdy crowds, wall-to-wall bars or panhandlers. Also absent on Anna Maria are high-rise condos and chain hotels. You'll have to drive off-island for a McDonald's or Starbucks fix. Give's you the small town feel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome!!



Left on 04/13/2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a wonderful time on our Florida vacation. The condo was everything that I could have hoped for. Loved that it was just steps from the beach!!! The condo was so comfortable and the decorations were amazing. Would definitely recommend this rental.

Great place to stay on the island!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo looked exactly as seen on the Internet. The building is old but the condo is spotlessly clean,well kept and is decorated with a cute beach flare. Just 50 feet away is a beautiful beach where you can walk for miles! The kitchen is well stocked and the condo is in a great location to easily get off the island. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Truly a condo in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 5 nights in this condo. It is a beautiful condo with tasteful beach decor, furnished with everything you could possibly need. Just across the road is the beach access which has no parking places so it is peaceful and not crowded. The Trolley stops just north and you can ride for free to anyplace along the island. There are beach chairs, a cooler and an umbrella to use. The little balcony is perfect for your morning coffee or to relax after a day at the beach. If you arrive at night the stairwell is dark but if you touch the top of the keypad it will illuminate. This condo is a great value and we felt like we were staying at a place made just for us. Very comfy and completely up to date. The road noise during the day is loud so if you wanted to shut off the air and open windows and doors it could be noisy but this was not an issue for us. The pictures are accurate and we would highly recommend it for a peaceful vacation at the beach. Thank you Larry and Lori for sharing your very special condo with us.

It really is a condo in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The description and pictures are exactly right!

Nice location! A walking path right across the street to the beach.

Not to mention...a view of the ocean from the balcony!

Loved the cute decor thru out the condo and the ease of the keyless entry!

It felt like our own condo we were vacationing at.

Would definitely stay here again!

Thank you Larry and Lori!

Comfortable, cozy and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending 26 days at this beautiful and beachy two bedroom condo on Anna Maria Island. The decor is very detailed and appropriate for the location, as it is located right across from Bradenton Beach, which is a plus! Just park your car at the back and enjoy walking across to the beach and jumping on the free trolley at the stop a minute away from the condo.

A stackable washer and dryer is located in the condo, a keyless entry is so convenient, and a balcony that overlooks the gulf makes your stay stress free. Walking across for the sunsets is a must!

There are beach chairs ,a beach umbrella, and beach toys supplied. Also, the condo is supplied with paper products for your stay for 4-6 people for a week.

We enjoyed Sharky's right down the street, (make reservations if you can), the live music is worth the visit!.

Enjoyed taking the trolley to Bridge Street for happy hour or supper at The Freckled Fin or Bridge Street Bistro. And, you must try Skinny's Place for a homemade hamburger at Holmes Beach.

We also enjoyed a hockey game in Tampa and an afternoon and evening cruise on LaBarge Cruises in Sarasota..

There is also a convenience store just down the street from the condo for munchies, drinks, etc.

The owners were always available for any questions regarding the property.

We hope to return to this condo in the future.

Paradise IS Anna Marie Island!!

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't have a better view for the price! The condo was very clean and inviting, (felt right at home).Centrally located on the island, trollies and the Monkey Bus are at your fingertips! The atmosphere on this island is so Jimmy Buffet!!! The Sand dollar has a wonderful view for sunsets, their food is excellent!! We went to the south end of the island and crossed over to Long Boat Key took the first right and found a great place to explore, especially at night when the crabs are out!! We donated our crab net for the next explorers!! We are looking forward to our next visit!!
