Overview

Holmes Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

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

We enjoyed our visit and will book this home for our future stays here on AMI.

We have been coming here for 7 years and your home was by far the best for our growing family.

Everything you could ask for on a relaxing beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

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!

Everything needed for a great week on AMI. In addition to the beach we enjoyed the variety of books and yoga classes at the AMI Center. We hope to be back next year!

Wow. This home set the bar high for future vacations!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Palm Isle for our first family vacation with our three children, ages 8, 6 and 3. We could not ask for more. This home was absolutely beautiful, with full kitchen and laundry, which we all know is crucial for families. The beach was about a 5-minute walk one way and shopping and food, such as Walgreens and Subway, was 5 minutes the other way. The kids loved that the pool was literally in the backyard. It was a huge plus that beach towels were available for our use, which saved us from having to pack. I truly cannot express what a wonderful place this was for our children's first time seeing the ocean. The kids cannot wait to return next year!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the house. The house was very clean, well appointed and well laid out. there were plenty of extras from beach toys to books. The kitchen was a delight and the bbq made mealtime a breeze. It is mere steps from shopping and ice cream on one side and the beach on the other. We hope to return next year.

AMAZING VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5

We felt so lucky to have found the 1 week this year this property was available. It's so well furnished and equipped, across from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, walking distance to groceries and pharmacy. The shared pool was never busy and was the perfect temperature. The layout of the property is incredible, so much space and privacy for everyone. We'll definitely remember this holiday as one of our favourites! Thank you again to the owners, they're lovely to deal with and could not have been more helpful:)

Fun time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples) had a wonderful stay on Anna Maria Island. This property is situated in an ideal location, close to the beach access and shops where you can get your provisions. It was a short ride to the Bradenton Beach Pier area. Morning coffee was enjoyed up on the widows watch. We made use of the heated pool and saw some lovely sunsets. The house was spacious and did not lack for anything. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Anna Maria Island.
