Anna Maria Island's Coquina Beach: Best island sand in United States.Coquina Beach has put Anna Maria Island at the top of the list for best island in the United States for its perfect white sand, according to a Condé Nast Traveler’s reader survey.

Coquina’s sand was ranked fifth-best in the world in the Condé Nast Traveler’s readers’ choice awards for “top island beaches for perfect sand.”

The cottages at Palm Isle Village are some of the finest and most favored vacation properties on Anna Maria Island. We are always very proud to recommend o our vacationers and no one can say it isn't a special place to spend quality time with friends and family. With so many indulgent, delightfully tropical features, it becomes difficult to discern precisely what makes them so exceptional. It’s just all so fabulous!

It could be swaying palm trees and lush bougainvillea thriving around a heated pool for shady relaxation when you need a beach break. And speaking of which, Palm Isle Village is right across the street from the Gulf of Mexico and our glistening, powder soft sand. Widow watches surround the property so you can climb up the spiral staircases and get lost in the open water views and endless sunsets. And after such an inspiring vista, you’ll want to get out and explore the rest of Anna Maria Island. A stop for our free, air conditioned is just around the corner and offers a leisurely ride around all of our seven miles. There is designer furniture throughout all the units and each vacation cottage has its own courtyard with plenty of privacy from tall fences. Palm Isle 3203 in particular has just added a new sleeper sofa, chair, and ottoman in the living room. A cobalt blue, coastal print adds a touch of whimsy to the living room and makes a lasting impression for your vacation memories.

Palm Isle 3203 can accommodate up to six guests in two bedrooms, two bathrooms and they’re all stocked with hotel quality, professionally laundered linens. King and queen mattresses are available in the bedrooms while the living room offers a sleeper sofa. The layout is cozy, but not cramped and Florida sunshine pours through the sliding glass doors leading out the back where a propane grill and outdoor dining table are waiting for your big vacation cookout.

Should you need to work during a stay in, the free wireless internet connection is strong and the dining room can serve as a charming makeshift office. Readers will love vacationing here due to well stocked, built in bookshelves which you can also find in the bedrooms. Wake up in those feather soft sheets, grab a paperback and head straight out the patio for morning coffee – access to the patio is available straight from the bedrooms.

Perhaps what makes Palm Isle Village so unique is all these lovely features are available in one location. But why don’t you decide for yourself by booking a week’s vacation.

About Susan LeBeau

We live in upstate NY and have found Anna Maria thru our good friends who have been going to this island for over 20 years.

Susan LeBeau purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Susan LeBeau chose Holmes Beach

This island is like stepping back in time. No high rises, no fast food drive just sun and sand and beautiful blue water. Everything you might need is just steps away and for trips a little further there is the free trolley.

What makes this cottage unique

The private patio and beautiful pool within steps of the beach makes this a great location.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Charming, Beautiful

 Left on Jan 17, 2017 for a stay in Dec 2016

The photos are accurate. But, in person the home is stunning. When my husband and I walked in, the first thing I said was "they must have did a background check on us"! My husband (who is NEVER speechless) did not say anything, he just kept walking around. Then, he finally said "you did good". We enjoyed everything the home had to offer, and the closeness to the beach. I rode my bike to Publix, and walked to Walgreens and the other stores located 1-1/2 blocks away. During our 10 day stay, we got into our car twice. Both times to go to dinner at the Star Fish Co. It has taken me 2-1/2 weeks to write this review - we got home on Saturday night - on Sunday I went to book for 2017, and it had already been taken. I'm still stunned and heartbroken. This home and the surroundings get into your soul. Thank you for sharing with us.

Amazing home, great location with access to pool and beach!

  • 5 of 5

The property is just wonderful. The location offers access to a private pool shared by only a few other property residents. The location is also directly across the street from the beach so you get the best of both worlds - pool and ocean. The home itself was very well equipped and comfortable for the 4 of us with a beautiful kitchen and very nice, updated and spotless clean bathrooms. There is a private patio and BBQ for outdoor lounging. It's close to a Walgreens and a grocery store in case there's anything you forgot at home. I would rent this home again and again! Enjoyed ourselves and it was a very relaxing vacation!!!

Most relaxing vacation ever

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Owners were very helpful in providing suggestions for places to eat and things to do. Condo was very neat, clean, modern, pretty, comfortable. Pool was great.

Initially front door lock was broken, but we didn't have to wait long for someone to come open it. This made us worried about what else we'd find on the inside but we were pleasantly surprised at how warm and inviting it was. It also had every appliance and type of linen you'd need. The only thing we had to provide was food, Great place to stay. Very nice owners. Would recommend it for a nice relaxing vacation.

Everything you could ask for on a relaxing beach vacation

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Perfect getaway home replete with volumes of summer reading in which to immerse oneself. Loved the layout of the cottage. Both bedrooms and living room open up to the private back patio. Pool is just a few steps beyond patio through a private gate. Widow walk is great for early morning reflection and bird's eye view of surroundings.

Since the property is right across the street from the beach, it is easy to pack up a cooler for lunch and run back if you forget anything. The beach is simply lovely white sand and away from the crowds found further up and down the way. Beach towels, umbrella, chairs, etc. were provided. So much within easy walking distance including restaurants, pharmacy, grocery, bank, etc. Owners were extremely helpful, provided us with loads of information prior to our arrival, and responded quickly to all correspondence. This place is a true gem that we would return to in a heartbeat!
