About Hendrik

It's been with much pleasure having happy guests all these years while being in the US and in between my trainings. I hope to keep the property as long as I can now that I have Mike and Peggy as nearby managers who upgrade the units each year with love and devotion.

I thank the many friends I have made through my rental for their loyalty and friendship.

Hendrik purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Hendrik chose Holmes Beach

I know I am relatively inexpensive for the island because I did not raise my prices every single year and I firmly believe that my guests appreciate that as I can see them coming back again and again. I usually change my rates only every 2- 3 years in a moderate way, so you get alot for your buck when you realize how near we are to the beach..

What makes this apartment unique

location just 39 steps from your Anna Maria Island property to the Emerald Waters and White Sands of the Gulf of Mexico beach entrance point . Your personal courtyard area of White Sea Shells is surrounded by a lush border of Tropical Palms and Exotic Plants for your enjoyment and Privacy. Ample parking for cars.. Big Screen/Smart TVs in 2 rooms , High Speed internet. Plus washer and dryer in each unit.

Very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We like to stay in this little paradise only a few steps from the beach.

It ist cosy and nice and gots everything you need. It is clean and gives enough space for two - may be as well for a couple with one or two children (there are two bathrooms in the house!)

It is not a 5 star house - but that is okay, because we do not need such a thing.

The contact to the owner is great and if there would be any problems, you have a phonenumber (we did not need it cause everything was fine).

It has been our third stay here and it won't be the last. Can't wait to be in this paradise again. Anna Maria Island is so very special, it is calm but you can do many things and there are a lot of nice restaurents in the surroundings. LOVE IT!

We spend 3 weeks in Florida, the one week by Hendrik was the perfekt one!

Nice contact, helpful, uncomplicatet.

The host was clean, fresh und in the kitchen we found allready things to use. This was helpful for the first arriving.

If we come back to Florida, we will stay here again.

It's next to the street but it was absolutly not noisy! The walk to the beach was near and easy!

On this Island you can find everything what you want, fun and Action, relax und chill, walking, jogging or a tour with the bycicle, golf, wateraction.

The free Trolley is absolutly great!

Steps to the beach and being towards the middle of the island made it easy to relax in the sand of get to either end of the island with ease. Nice clean spacious apartment. Having two bathrooms and laundry in room was a plus.
