Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Large 6 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home for your whole family!

Villa Chianti is a luxurious Anna Maria Island vacation home in Holmes Beach that boasts one of the largest beach entry pools on the island with double waterfalls. The world-famous Old Florida charm of Anna Maria meets brand-new, modern living in Villa Chianti. With every modern convenience and a high level of attention to detail throughout this spacious and superb vacation home, you can experience the simple pleasures which come for free in the best-kept secret in Florida. At one time, visitors to Anna Maria were content to just bury their toes in the sand during the day and stay in a shack at night, but today's modern tourist demands much more. You can still lose yourself in the tranquility and beauty of this jewel on the Gulf Coast, but once the sun goes down and the stars come out, there is no reason why you should stop enjoying your surroundings. Designed and decorated with every comfort in mind, the six bedrooms and spacious living areas of Villa Chianti provide a relaxing environment in which to share in the company of family and friends, with plenty of space to enjoy splendid isolation with a good book and a drink with your name on it. Situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac yet right in the center of the island, close to the best beaches, main supermarket and shopping areas and some of the best restaurants in the area. You could not be more perfectly placed to get the best out of a stay on this perfect seven-mile stretch of peace and tranquility. Villa Chianti also features some little touches which will make a big difference to your vacation. On the ground floor is a game room, including a fooseball table for those who always carry a competitive spirit with them. Outside is a fabulous kitchen with a bar and grill area, complete with refrigerator and sink, for those long evenings when you just don`t want to go inside. You are free to entertain, eat, drink and be merry in relaxed comfort thanks to the 10-seater granite table in the lushly-planted gardens as the waterfall trickles a tranquil tune into the 70 ft zero entry pool. Inside there are almost too many thoughtful touches to cover. From the grand king bedroom, with its private balcony, to the sumptuous sofas and kitchen with breakfast bar, 52 in TV in the lounge area and many, many more fantastic features which make this villa so special. Villa Chianti promises to become one of our most popular destinations for families and larger groups looking to stay all together in comfort and without any compromise. And as we said, even though Anna Maria Island is as authentic as Old Florida gets, you shouldn't have to miss out on staying somewhere shiny and new. Disclaimer: Heated pool with two waterfalls, but no water spouts in pool entrance. Hot tub for soaking purposes only, no air blower/high heat.

THE WORST!!!

  • 1 of 5

The pictures are beautiful but the home in person was very disappointing. The home has many water spots on the ceilings where there has been some leaking. The window in the living room and the doors connected to the kitchen leading out to the balcony were leaking when it rained. When we arrived the pool & the "hot tub" were ice cold. I did call and they sent someone out to handle it but not until 3 days into our trip. The description calls the spa a "hot tub" so I expected it to be hot. The pool itself was nice in that it had a nice shallow area for the smaller kids but it required us to skim it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY and often twice a day because of all the palm trees surrounding the pool. The bathroom drain upstairs was backing up from day 1. Again, called about this and they sent someone out to fix it. The outdoor grill was "out of order" from day 1. So they provided a stand alone grill that was half the size of the existing which made it difficult to cook for as many people that were staying in the house. The outdoor shower wasn't working. And let's not forget, the huge COCKROACH that decided to join us on our last day. You couldn't pay me to stay at this property again!!

Owner's Response: Dear Deanna, I am so terribly sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Villa Chianti. It is certainly our intention that every guest has a wonderful stay and I understand if we have lost the opportunity to have you stay with us again in the future. I would like to add that we made every effort to address your concerns while you were in the home. The water spots are the result of the recent discovery that the top floor deck has developed a leak and will need to be resurfaced and is a work in progress as I write this. I apologize for any confusion regarding the hot tub and I will work to reword the description but it is advertised as being heated at the same temperature as the pool. After you arrived on Saturday after 3 pm, the first call I received with any concerns was Sunday night at 7 pm and it was discussed that Monday morning would be the earliest I could have anyone look at the pool. A member of our team visited the home Monday morning, spoke with members of your group, and contacted the pool service company as well and the pool heat was corrected on Tuesday. The back yard does have heavy foliage and the pool is uncovered so unfortunately, debris does enter the pool but it is scheduled to be cleaned and treated 3 times per week because this is a known concern. As you mentioned, the upstairs drain backed up which was corrected and we have an alternative BBQ grill in place while parts were being ordered. I was not aware that the outdoor shower was out of order but I would have been happy to have it repaired during your stay. In regards to the cockroach, this home is treated monthly by a professional pest control company and occasionally, Palmetto Bugs find their way inside the home, especially during times of heavy rainfall which we experienced during the few days before Hurricane Matthew. Again, I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and that there were several unfortunate events that occurred. I think I have outlined at least how we responded to the events that we were made aware of and our efforts to resolve those concerns. My sincerest apologies, Andrew Jenkins Edgewater Real Estate

Great property but we had our issues

  • 3 of 5

The property as beautiful and rental staff was very friendly. The first 3 days we had issues with the pool and hot tub, luckily my father in law was able to fix any issues after that. We had a TV go out while we were staying there and they promptly sent someone over and had it replaced. We also had some animal issues and had to have a pool cleaner come one day and clean animal feces from the pool. It was promptly taken care of as well. Has quick access to the beach and wonderful views from the roof top balcony.

Our biggest complaint was on the last day at the home we left some expensive retainers behind when we checked out. This was completely our fault. We contacted them and we were told a cleaning lady had them and they would ship them to us. A few days later we contacted to see if they were shipped and we were told that the cleaning person had to run out and the retainers were never seen again. We would have gone back to the home that day and picked them up if we weren't told they would be shipped and were in possession. This was a 1k out of our pocket. In the very least we expected that the cleaning service fee would be waved and it wasn't. There are a lot of nice properties in the area so we are unsure if we will stay here again. When spending thousands you expect to be treated that way. We were told we would be taken care of on our next trip but not sure we will give that opportunity. The home is beautiful though and we did have a good time, unfortunate that happened...the other stuff we were very understanding about.
