Island Retreat

4805 2nd Avenue

Holmes Beach, FL 34217

VRC16-000621

Key West meets Anna Maria Island in a dream vacation home. Island Retreat combines the best of both worlds, oozing a traditional south Florida style outside, with shaded balconies and intricate wooden architecture, with unrivalled, modern luxury on the inside. Built to the most exacting standards, you will be left in no doubt exactly where you are-paradise.

With four bedrooms, three bathrooms and plenty of interior space, Island Retreat will waste no time in whisking your troubles away and filling your head with thoughts of relaxation. From the Jacuzzi tubs in the two master en-suites, to the tiki bar and your electrically heated private pool in the tropical landscaped gardens, and huge open-plan lounge and dining area for sharing those precious moments together, you will know you’re in a special place before you even explore all Anna Maria has to offer.

This property participates in our Professional Linen Program. In Anna Maria Vacation's continuous effort to bring only the best quality experience to our guests, we are proud to offer a professional linen service at this property to better enhance your enjoyment while staying here. This luxury amenity provides you high quality linens that are in place and ready for your use upon your arrival. These high-quality linens are washed in a commercial setting using the latest and best technology.

Take the fuss and worry out of packing your private sheets and beach towels knowing that when you arrive to your dream vacation rental, in place are high quality and commercially cleaned luxury bedding, bath towels, wash cloths and beach towels ready for your stay. Eliminate the guessing game, free up luggage space and breathe easy knowing that everything is already taken care of for you. This same philosophy extends even to your departure- nothing to wash, dry, fold or having to fool with trying to squeeze into an already tightly packed suitcase! A fantastic "must have amenity" for your AMI vacation experience.

But Island Retreat is so much more than a pretty-as-a-picture, luxurious vacation home. Situated in a quiet residential area, you are just a short stroll to one of Anna Maria's best stretches of the sugar soft sand for which it is world-famous, and with no busy roads to cross it is safe for young children. Island Retreat is also conveniently located near to the shopping district in Holmes Beach, with its fascinating blend of cafes, souvenir shops, banks and the island’s chamber of commerce for all your tourist information needs.

And while Island Retreat includes everything you will need to whip up some of Florida's finest food creations in the comfort of your own fully-stocked, handcrafted kitchen, you are also within a short distance of some of the best spots in the county to let someone else get their pans dirty. A couple of minutes' walk along the shore will bring you to Café on the Beach, for gloriously simple breakfasts of pancakes and coffee with your toes in the sand, while just as close in the other direction are restaurants where both the food and the sunsets are simply glorious.

You won't have to stay long in Island Retreat to realise that while your home is very much Key West in style your memories will be made on the Gulf Coast. Fabulous sunsets, empty sands, a friendly smile from everyone you meet, plenty of things to do for young and old, and the most relaxing vacation ever. It might even bring to mind one of their favorite sayings down there in the Keys, 'Life is good'.

It sure is here.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Bedrooms:

Island Retreat has four double bedrooms, featuring beautiful bespoke furniture, luxurious linens and fittings and beds to savor. Thank goodness you're on vacation and have the time to enjoy them.

The master bedroom, on the first floor, is a magnificent space, made all the better by some truly special touches. With a king-sized, four-poster bed fitted with luxury high thread-count linens and surrounded by beautiful furniture, this wonderful suite may just take your breath away. With a separate walk-in closet, large en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, jacuzzi tub, his-and-hers basins, a tiled floor and granite tops, every attention to detail has been considered. But the crowning glory awaits outside, on your private covered sun deck, which looks out towards the shimmering waters of the Gulf of Mexico and is the perfect shaded spot to enjoy breakfast in the morning, and the slow descent of the sun in the evening. Enjoy your room, enjoy the view, soak up the atmosphere of this magnificent place.

On the second floor are three further bedrooms, one another king-sized master, and one each including a queen-sized and twin beds. The second master also benefits from a luxurious en-suite bathroom, also featuring a large walk-in shower, double basins, tiled floor, granite tops and WC. It too has a large walk-in closet to store all your clothes and more besides and a private balcony enjoying even more far-reaching views than the one below.

Exterior

** If you would like to have your pool heated, we kindly ask that you please contact AMV at least 10 days prior to your arrival so that it ensures us ample time to fulfill your request. We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools and pool equipment are closely monitored by the pool company for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with- most of the systems are locked for this reason. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs (some properties have a spa, some have a hot tub). Generally speaking, our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, please be aware that even in Central Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down into the 30's for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to draw down to in the 70's and a pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool back to 82, which may take several days depending on the severity of the cold spell. Ultimately, these situations are beyond our control. Other issues such as severe weather conditions, equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes or other items do happen for time to time. Please be aware that AMV cannot issue refunds during your stay based on acts of God. However, please know that in the rare event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, AMV will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we certainly want you to enjoy your heated pool and Florida sunshine to the fullest extent possible! Anna Maria Vacations thanks you in advance for your understanding on this issue.

Fabulous Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house and great location to the beach and town! It was clean, which is the highest priority on my list, comfortable and up-to-date. Three families shared this home and we were truly able to relax in it. My boys loved the heated pool! The ping pong room was an extra treat. Thanks for having some sand toys on hand! The only downside was that it did not have great WiFi. We would definitely recommend this home and we are looking forward to going back one day.
