You won't want to leave our cute and cozy gulf front cottage, which we've named 'Can't Wait'....
We are 'right on the sand' as they say, but also walking distance to shopping, restaurants and more. Our home is a ground level cottage, located on a quiet street with a wonderful sunporch. You won't believe the views... whether it's first thing in the morning or at sunset.
Our deck by the beach is one of the favorite amenities of 'Can't Wait'. It's a great place to have your morning coffee, watch the dolphins swim by or the beachwalkers stroll by or celebrate the end of the day sunset.
You will find all the conviences of home. We usually spend the 8 weeks at our cottage in the fall. So, we have a well stocked kitchen with microwave, dishwasher and icemaker, a propane gas grill (propane guest's responsiblity), a washer and dryer, highspeed wireless internet and unlimited long distance (US & Canada).
We are also just a short walk down the beach to 'Cafe on the Beach', which is where we go for our traditional first breakfast on Anna Maria and Skinny's a great dive bar with terrific burgers and the coldest beer on the Island.
So come and enjoy the sounds of the surf, the sand in your feet and the wonderful Florida sun, in our wonderful beachfront cottage. 7 night minimum stay.
Occupancy is limited to 6, this is due to zoning in Holmes Beach. 2 parking spots are available on site.

About Tom or Bonnie Page
Tom and I live in beautiful Northern Michigan. We love spring, summer and fall in Michigan and enjoy gardening, boating, long walks and travel. Tom is a University of Michigan Grad and Bonnie is a Michigan State University Grad so football and basketball seasons are a lot of fun.
Tom or Bonnie Page purchased this House in 2001
Why Tom or Bonnie Page chose Holmes Beach
We were visiting friends in Florida, and Tom was training for a marathon, the last thing we thought we would do was buy a vacation home. But we looked at the real estate magazines and went out for 1/2 a day with Lisa our realtor, and fell in love with 'Can't Wait' and Anna Maria. We have never regretted our quick decision to buy a piece of paradise.
What makes this House unique
We always walk down to Cafe on the Beach at the County Park the first morning we are there. We enjoy eating outside on the beach and the casual atmosphere. We also spend a lot of time on our deck by the water enjoying a couple of cocktails while watching the amazing sunsets. We love that we are walking distance to the Publix grocery store and 5 or 6 great restaurants - including the best German restaurant outside of Germany and the best Sushi Bar in Southwest Florida. We rarely have to get in the car, once we park it in our driveway.

We love Can't Wait! This was our second time visiting and the charm of this perfect cottage has not worn off. We loved eating breakfast on the outdoor patio and the sunsets are beyond compare. We hope to visit again sometime soon.
Thanks for the kind words. We are so glad you had a nice time at our cottage. We look forward fo having you for a return visit.
Awesome stay… Can’t Wait is paradise!
We visit this area once each year, and absolutely loved the convenient location of the house. Walk out the back door, and you’re on the beach. The house was well appointed, clean, and met all of our needs. The backyard is very spacious, and provides shade from the hot sun. Conveniently located to everything we needed for shopping: souvenirs,
pharmacies, groceries, donut shop, and the liquor store. There was ample parking for our rental car and golf cart. This is definitely a home we would love to rent again in the near future. Thank you Tom and Bonnie.
Can't Wait ... to come back!
Loved the property and the home. Perfect amenities. More than enough space for everyone.
Great beach for swimming, snorkeling and boogie boards.
Thanks Tom and Bonnie.
Perfect Family Vacation
We had the best family vacation at Can't Wait. We were a family of 6, including 3 children, and the house was perfect for us. The location is incredible - right on the beach - and so easy to be going back and forth during the day to cater to snacks, naps, drinks, etc. The sunset views from the little viewing deck were amazing. The house is perfectly located to be able to walk to restaurants, convenience stores, ice cream, etc. but if you want to discover more of the island, the free trolley is so fun too. We will definitely be back - we had one of our best trips ever. Thanks to Bonnie and Pat for sharing their home with us. :)
The location of Can't Wait is perfect; centrally located on AMI with a fabulous view. We loved the beach, cottage and the gorgeous sunset! Everything that we needed was right there for us. The tile in the bathroom was beautiful and the living space was very comfortable. Thank you for sharing your beach cottage with us.
It is important to separate the location from the property in this review. The location is as good as it gets on the North part of Anna Maria Island. Lovely beach, great food nearby and great access to many lovely places within an hours drive. We had not previously had a Floridian Beach experience. The interior is tired, shabby and grubby and had a damp smell when we first arrived, which stayed the remainder of our stay. The cutlery and kitchen utensils were not adequate for 4 people, and most of what was there, was old and not very clean. We had to buy disposable cutlery, plates and glasses. Overall, the property requires a complete overhaul, thorough clean and new kitchen utensils, then this could be a perfect place to stay. This could have been the perfect holiday, but sadly was really disappointing and we would not come back.
We are so sorry our cottage did not meet or exceed your expectations. We have never had complaints of that nature in the past, but will take them to heart. We will share with our management company that the cleanliness needs to be addressed during the next cleaning. Our cottage was built in the early 1940's. We try very hard to keep it current and comfortable with improvements/updates each year, but it is an older cottage. We appreciate the feedback.
